I’ve been a member of this one for a few weeks now. It seems stable enough, and the forum is slow but regular.  If you click all the ads and complete the ClixGrid you get a bonus of $0.05 every day into your Purchase Balance. This is a nice way of building up a few Dollars to invest into free Rented Referrals.

Currently, I have 1 Direct Referral and I rented 3 out of my earnings yesterday (18/09/2015).  The Rented Referrals cost the usual $0.30 each, and only one of them has clicked so far, but it is the weekend. That referral has completed 10 clicks, so I’ve earned 0.008 from them in a day. If they carry on at that rate, then I’ll earn $0.24 from them in the 30 days. A loss of $0.06 🙁 But, it’s still early days, and it’s the weekend, so one of the others might start clicking on Monday.

I’m earning around $0.20 a day as a Standard member, and as they don’t force you to view the ads I can be doing this one along with a few others. I find I can do about five sites at the same time, rotating between them, and it takes me around 30 minutes. It’s not exciting, but I tend to do it while I’m waking up with my coffee in the morning 🙂

I will report back once I’ve made a withdrawal.

UPDATE: – 17/09/2015
I re-invested my daily bonus money in 3 Rented Referrals, so I’ll be able to track how they perform.

UPDATE: 4th October 2015

This site is now longer available, looks like another scam stole the money 🙁

A new kid on the block. It’s currently in Beta mode until the 21st September, and until then they’re giving away a free months membership for Ultimate (Top Level). This means that without spending any money what so ever you can earn $0.226 a day. Rented Referrals are about average at $0.30 each for a 30 day period. They have an interesting view on Withdrawals, I get a message saying I need to have made 100 clicks before I can withdraw. Hopefully, I can do that before they close down 🙂

I must admit, I’m a little suspicious of this one as it’s the exact same promotion as ClixPal which shut down last week. But I shall keep an eye on it and report back when I’ve made my 100 clicks

UPDATE – 29th September 2015

It seems that they have changed the withdrawal, now it is set at $4.00 minimum

PTC Bank

scam siteI came across this site when I was first starting out in the PTC world. Obviously it was the extremely high click value that attracted me. Well I’m afraid the old saying If it looks too good to be true, then it probably is.is certainly apt in this case. I wasted 4 days clicking the ads on this site before I learned enough to be suspicious. I did a web search on it and found hundreds of posts complaining about them. Basically they will close your account as soon as you try to cash-out.

ClixSense is one of the oldest PTC sites on the Web today. It’s also one with the most diverse ways of earning cash. By completing everything in a section, you can earn bonuses. For example, by clicking on all the ads of a certain value, you get an extra 0.05% on top of the ad value.

It’s difficult to estimate how much you can earn each day, as they release ads slowly over 24 hours, I generally click the ads when I’m bored at my PC. After a week of using this site I’m getting around $0.50 a day, which equates to £15.20 a month; not too bad 🙂 If I could do more surveys then I reckon I could at least double that.

One word of caution; unless you’re going to get a lot of referrals, then don’t bother upgrading your account, it doesn’t pay enough. To give them their due, ClixSense tell you this on their upgrade page, so big kudos to them for that.

The surveys available are dependent on which country you’re from, Sadly Italy doesn’t have too many. But, if you’re from the UK, USA, or Germany, then you’ll get quite a few. They pay between 0.75 to 0.85 each and last up to 30 minutes.

During the day more ads and surveys are released, so you can add a bit more cash if you sit in front of your computer all day. One unique thing is their Chrome plugin, which will notify you if any new offerings are available. It’s pretty good, not resource hungry, and saves you having to refresh their web page every few minutes.

Despite having to actually view the ads, I’m giving this one a RECOMMENDED, as you can earn a respectable amount in a month, and it’s been paying for years.

Earned in one day: 0.3984

Earning Methods: PTC

Validated Payment: YES – But now SCAM site

This is one of my regular sites, I’ve been a member for just over a week, and I’ve invested a few Dollars in getting Direct Referrals for this one. With a single investment of just $3.00 (for an ad in another site) and $10.00 to upgrade to a Premium Membership for 30 days, I have currently got 35 Direct Referrals, which with my own earning are on target to bring in $90.00 for the time my membership lasts.

I have successfully Withdrawn $2.00 and am just waiting on another Withdrawal of $11.38, so (if this gets paid) I will have already made back my investment, plus a couple of Dollars 🙂

UPDATE

Payment received 🙂 This looks like it may be worth investing my next few days of earnings.

Now waiting on another payment of $33, it should be paid today sometime. They have started moderating the Forum, which is a worrying sign, but fingers crossed.

UPDATE:

Well, sadly this looks like another scam 🙁 They failed to process my withdrawal, respond to support tickets. They then deleted my post in the Forum asking when I’ll get paid, and stopped me posting anymore. I have raised a dispute on PayPal for the last payment. I got a response from Excellent asking me to drop it, then they would process my payment – I don’t think so. Today my account has been suspended, what a surprise. So I told them I’d be raising a dispute for every payment made to them, and then escalated the dispute. Curious to see what happens next.

UPDATE

Well, my first dispute was successful, and I’ve had a $20 payment refunded, now onto dispute number 2 🙂

scam site

This was another site that I joined before I knew what to look for. I even invested some cash in it as it looked a pretty good return. Not only do they not pay you out, they don’t even credit you for the Paid to Join sites 🙁

All is not completely lost though. I currently earn around $5.00 a day on this site, and they allow you to transfer your Balance to your Purchase Balance. So every week I transfer over all my “earnings” and create Pay to Click ads for my legitimate sites. If nothing else, it’s a cheap way of getting some more Direct Referrals 🙂

This is a brand new site that I’ve joined. I found this one on the eMoneySpace forum (an excellent resource for finding new/good/scam PTC sites). I after reading the admin’s postings, I decided to go for broke on this one and invested $55 on day one.

I sent the admin a support request, and he responded within minutes. Comfortingly, he uses his real name in his emails, which makes a nice change from the usual non-personal Admin ones. Also, doing a WhoIs lookup on the site returns a real name, with personal email addresses, along with a PO Box and phone number. This is one of the most biggest pluses in deciding whether to join a site or not.

Presently he’s giving away a free upgrade, so you can earn $0.632 a day without investing anything. If you do add funds, there’s generally a good bonus running – I got a $10 bonus for upgrading to a Green level (Cost $29.97 for 12 months) which went straight into my Balance, not the Purchase Balance. Rentals are fairly highly priced at $0.80, but they last forever, so really they are the equivalent of buying direct ones.

I’m giving this one 4 stars, I’d give it five stars, but I need to monitor it for a few months yet.

UPDATE: – 15/09/2015
Well, this site is now verified, just received my first payment 🙂 I’ve got a good feeling about this one, fast payment too within a couple of hours of request.

UPDATE: – 19/09/2015
The Admin has changed the membership subscription set up, and you can now get all memberships on a monthly basis. I chatted with him via email and he agreed to swap my 4th tier annual membership to an 8th level one for a month. I now get $0.04 per click, and I get $0.03 from my referrals 🙂 I’ve also invested in another 78 Rented Referrals, now totalling 123.

UPDATE: 29th September 2015
It’s been a while since I updated this one. I have now received my 4th payment, this one is definitely a keeper.
Other changes are:

  • moved the rating to 5 star
  • Rented Referrals are now for 60 days and cost $1.00

UPDATE: 13th October 2015

A fair few changes have been happening to the site over the last few weeks:

  • Rented Referrals cost now varies depending on your membership level
  • I have now successfully withdrawn almost $200
  • The admin has opened several additional sites and is planning a super site for the New Year

The amount of changes this site goes through actually gives me more confidence that it’s here to stay. If it was a scam of any sort, then the admin wouldn’t bother tweaking the site.
