I am member of Marketing Pond, (this is a program that enables you to add your #ID numbers and codes to a list of programs they provide , so you can get referrals for these programs)they have just e-mailed their members, informing us that Adbux is removed from their list of accepted programs, for the following reasons: Not paying commissions requests within the time limit,as stated by their policy-24 to 48 hours Not paying out late member commissions,even after stating several times, they would. Setting members payout commission to "paid" when they did not pay the member. Seeking upgrade fees, when nothing is in place for the upgrade member. Complaint filings to Paypal. If your already a member of Adbux and are happy with them or have been paid by them,it's up to you as to whether you want to remain a member or not.This is just to let you know of the complaints this site is receiving. As for me, there have been too many complaints in e-mails I receive from various sources,regarding Adbux and it's not worth it to me to remain a member.

Thanks for sharing the information. I am not into it but still i would keep an eye on it. Ok one more thing, is marketing pond effective? I mean I have seen the thing but did not take part thinking that its useless. Can you please tell me if it is efficient or not? It will be highly appreciated.

I'm only a member for a short time.But, I really like this site, because, they offer so much for free.The best way to learn about all they offer, is to visit the website and find out if it's for you.They also have a great forum, even if you don't join the program itself. also,the administrator of the site is extremely helpful and sends updates frequently.http://tinyurl.com/2ckx2. Good Luck

Interesting, didn't know Adbux had some tainted reputations. Do you have a link to the forum which we can look at? I do want to see recent posts and updates about people's talk about the web site. That'll make it a bit more informative.

I am an AdBux member and I had been a happy member until today when I found out that they had mysteriously changed their low $5.00 payout (which is why I joined) to a minimum of a $10.00 payout. I've been working at it for a couple of weeks and I can't get a payout still? Please.

This is part of what upsets me about this program.Sure, they may be paying some people, but their policy changes are very disturbing.What did they do? ,wait until they had enough members and then change the payout from 5.00 to 10.00? Or and most likely, they have too many members and are not able to pay them in any reasonable amount of time, so they raise the minimum payout. I have no reason to stay with a program that deals with it's members like this.

Thanks for the warning, I tend to stick with programs until the first payment and if not paid within a suitable time leave them. A very reliable site I used to use has now stopped paying out it seems but im going to stick with it another month just in case they are going through a bad patch.

Thanks for your response.The trouble with most paying websites is, you just never know how long they're going to be around,or even if you'll ever get paid by them. But, like you mentioned,sticking with one for a suitable amount of time is fine, as long as they pay within that time frame. And I just wish they would let their policies reflect this.

I knew they would someday scam people because their rates are really high and I doubt their sustainability. I knew they would not pay within days. I'm glad that I did not waste my time joining their program but I'm really sorry for those people they fooled. Maybe this would serve as a lesson for those people who are blinded by high rates but I'm not really blaming anyone.
