Well I have made a recent account on payperpost.com and i have read some of the articles that payperpost is a scam or you can say it's a lie. its not a marketplace where advertisers pay blogers while its a link to advertisments or something like that. In nutshell I want to say that it's not genuine. So I am asking if somebody has a prior experence with payperpost about payment and anything else please share it with me. Coz i have no intentions of wasting my time on payperpost. Thankyou.Jesse.

Payperpost.com is an online website which offers bloggers an opportunity to get paid for blogging, there are a growing number of companies looking for professional bloggers to review their services and Payperpost acts as a medium between you(the blogger) and the company (who wants their services reviewed) as a member of Payperpost you can set your going rate, for example if you wanted to blog only for companies that would offer you $10.00 per blog entry then you could set your going rate to $10.00 and would be matched with any company that wishes to make use of your services. You could also take offers for a company that would like you to do a job and you can adjust the offer details and negotiate it with the company. As an example of this lets say I was reviewing Payperpost they can contact me and offer me the opportunity for $10.00 and also stipulate how they want the review done (positive tone, negative tone or neutral) so lets assume they say they want a positive tone, I could write them back and ask for $12.00 and tell them I don’t feel comfortable being forced to write a positive review and if they wish they can modify their offer to meet what you have asked for ($12.00 and a neutral tone) and you can then being writing on your blog and once your done you will be paid. This all sounds great, and even better they claim to pay you $20.00 for signing up and so I decided to give it a try and signed up on October 1st, which was 18 days ago at this point and the website says once you have signed up you must wait for your blog to be approved by customer love (their name for customer care) but you can begin taking opportunities that are available to you once you sign up. With most websites the company will get back to you within a day or two so I decided to take an opportunity which was open to me (actually the example above but it paid $20) and I wrote up the blog entry about why I signed up for Payperpost which included my referral link also. This means there should be a total of $40 in my account (for signing up and also doing the Payperpost blog) however, I am still waiting to have from “customer love” about approving my blog. I have not yet been paid anything and put a lot of work into a website that sends me a lot of spam email but has never gotten back to me to “approve” my blog. Clearly, this was a waste of time for me and you should avoid this website.

Hi Jesse, it took a while for my blog to get approved by PPP too. It's worth waiting for, though. I don't get many ops with them, but I did get $20 for just posting my first post and for someone who just started out, $20 is a lot. Good luck and don't miss out ya! There are a few other paid post programs that I've joined, if you want to know more, just let me know. No scams, no catch because I hate them too! Cheerio! :)

Payperpost - I've been paid but gave them up as they were too strict!
Payperpost has paid me but I stopped using it after I found that my posts were not getting easily accepted and I had to alter them quite a few times. Its frustrating and I decided that my blog was better off without them. I'm not sure if they are a scam - they have strict terms and criteria and if you abide by them you will apparently get paid

I tried it out a long while ago and stayed about a week. All I heard was that there was an increase in cashout amounts and the owner asking people to hold on because the payment were late. That is not a way I like to join a site cause it usually means they are on their way out at that point. Considering they are still open I would be very cautious.

Simply why would owners ask posties to hold. Surely its a scam coz if owner gonna ask something like that probabily people want give them any review atleast the guy whom they have asked to hold will surely wont give a good review.Well be catious about that and if you got something please share.ThankYou. Jesse.

I don't think PayPerPost is a scam because I know a lot of people have earned a lot from them. I just got paid $20 for my first post with them. Do view my blog to see my payment proof. :)

Hi there jesse..Well I guess it's not a scam site..Well the problem is,the site is kinda strict and they will not easily approved a blog if it is not good quality and if it is not made for 30 days and the minimum is just like about 10 posts.I just saw some people say that it is a scam but I guess they are just strict to avoid abuse to the system but just try it,maybe you will get lucky..:-0 GOd bless and have a nice day.:-0

They're being a lot stricter on the blogs they alow to be part of their 'network' and deleting blogs that they say aren't high enough quality for them - no reasons given. Just had my membership cancelled . http://community.izea.com/blog/2008/08/blog-audit-in-p.html - some angry past members there.
