Some of you here have been following my discussions that I made on reviewstream. I have had alot of success there. I joined there about a month ago now, and tonight I made payout, to request payout you need to earn $50. I was on a mission to make it tonight and I did. To get to this amount of $50.80 I wrote 52 reviews. Out of these 52 reviews, 19 of them were paid at the $2 rate, and 33 reviews were paid at the bulk rate of 40 cents. I think I could have been paid more at the $2 rate however I always click the option that happy to get paid at bulk rate as I could not be bothered, lol, re editing my review to get paid the $2 rate. I will let you all know when I receive this amount in my paypal account. I have heard they pay pretty quickly.

Hi Sharie, yes it is free to join and the good news is I know they definately pay as many mylot friends here at mylot have been paid by them. That is how I found out about the site. But I will paste proof for you when I get payout too. Here is the link if you are interested: http://www.reviewstream.com You can write about anything: food, restaurants, movies, books, people, websites, phones,....... Try and write atleast 200 words though to get better payout of $2 also try popular topics such as technologies, popular cosmetic brands, finance companies.

Hiya Kiran, that is really cool, well done! I have just submitted my second review into them and I am just waiting to hear back from them. I was accepted for my first review and paid the full rate, but not so sure that the next one will! I have not done a lot of them yet but seeing that you have done so well encourages me to put more effort in!

Hey, good to hear from ya, did you get my email? What did you write your second review on? I am sure you will get paid well. As you can see, I was paid 19 of mine at the $2 rate. I am pretty happy with that. I notice though the more you write the more likely you are paid at the $2 rate. SO try and write 300 words if you can. Also reviews on businesses, perfumes, finance, phones, restaurants seem to pay at the higher rate too. I think I found out my earnings instantly as it says once you build up your reputation you have less processing time. So that is more motivation for you to write more reviews, lol. Keep me updated.

Hi daxus, sometimes also if you write a paragraph more your review will get accepted. I realised this as I was writing some of my reviews. Also like you said better to write more on your personal experiences rather then description of product or event. Good luck, happy reviewing.

Wow, Congratulations! That is great money to make in a month, and it looks like you have put a lot of hard work into it too. I have considered this site, but have yet to look into it properly. I think I shall have to have a look as I quite enjoy writing reviews, and if the money is regular then I would be quite happy to get on board. Looking forward to hearing that you have received the money in your accout and that all your effort and hard work will have paid off.

I have since got involved. It's not the one I thought it was actually and I like this site. Another one to review on my blog ;) I have so far submitted 4 reviews and 1 got rejected. Like someone else in this thread said, I probably wrote too much about the article not my opinion on it. It is hard to think of things to review but I'm sure I will get the hang of it and I really enjoyed myself on there. Does it matter if you are reviewing something that has already been reviewed? Not that mine have so far, but just in case. Looking forward to hopefully doing a few more later. Has anyone reviewed mylot on there yet?

Hi, no it does not matter if you review something someone else has reviewed. I wrote a review on mylot, lol, you can check it out by searching my username on there, kiran1978. I don't mind if you write one too we both would write differently.

That's fantastic! And you did it all in one month! It's amazing. You have definitely revived my interest in Review Stream after reading your previous discussion about it. I checked my account and it had slightly less than $10. I have just submitted a review to them and awaiting their reply. You have inspired me to do the same. I want to reach payout at Review Stream too!

Cool Sydney I am glad i have inspired you to write more reviews. Some days I had writers block, but then I get thinking about shows on tv, what I did that day or ate and I got more ideas on topics to write about. Chug along, write a couple a day and you should make payout in month too. Have you been paid any at $2 rate yet?

I have only been paid at the bulk rate. That was why I stopped for awhile because I thought that this site might be a scam. Anyway after reading some tips, maybe I will try to rewrite and submit until I get $2.

That's okay, like I said 33 of my reviews were paid bulk and 19 at $2. I don't mind as long as some are paid at $2 rate. They are definately not scam, I received my payout now in paypal, paid me in 6 hours not bad. Check out some of my discussions to see some of my $2 reviews. http://www.reviewstream.com/reviews/?p=41320 - Nissan Pulsar http://www.reviewstream.com/reviews/?p=42053 - Avon Bronzing Pearls

Hey kiran, Congratulations! I have posted twice about being paid by review stream with payment proofs and a couple days ago I cashed out a third time at $101.66USD for about a month and a half of writing. They paid me in less than 24 hours. Can't wait to see when you get your payment. I have had my account debited twice for 40 cents each. The first time it happened was because they were not interested in my review and the 2nd time they said the review was credited twice *shrugs* I have earned a little over $200USD from them since the middle of April 2008 till now. I am hoping to make another $50 by the end of August. I have tons of music so I may review those at bulk rate to make another payout. Congrats again! Nice to hear other people having success with this site besides myself.

Hi roxanne, thanks, I checked paypal this morning was paid at 4am this morning, only took 6 hours, so happy. Also it converted to $56 Australian dollars, so that was a bonus. Congrat on earning $200 US so far, that is really good. Can you tell me how many reviews did it take you to reach minimum payout?
• Trinidad And Tobago
15 Aug 08
That's awesome and thanks. Well all together I must have written about 400 reviews so far. I got quite a few at bulk rate because they were electronics. I did get a few for cosmetics too but not much and some for health and medicine reviews, but not all *shrugs* The others are at bulk rate. I usually do food. I can write up a food review in 5-10 minutes easy. I also did a few clothes reviews, music and movies at 40 cents. I haven't written for them in a couple days. Hopefully I'll get time on Sunday to do so since I am busy today and tomorrow. Have a good one

lol I meant full rate for electronics and the other listed categories before I moved on to listing the categories I got bulk rate at below.

Congratulations! I have been paid by this site, too. Actually, I've been paid 3 times. I just got lazy lately that is why I haven't written more reviews. Honestly, they pay really quick. You just have to email them to request for your payment. I can remember when I requested for my 1st pay, in less than 24hours, they already deposited in my paypal the $50. But when I asked for my 3rd pay, I waited for like 3 days (because that is the maximum of payment processing as they promised). But they are really good. And they really stick to the rules. Please just be careful with your reviews because they will debit your account if later on they realize that your review is not interesting. But still, I love this site =)

Yes, they have debited my account twice because they said they are not interested with the product that I reviewed. I think it is really good to check those 'review request list' and we should prove to the site admin that we are actually using that certain product.

Not originally. However, adding e-mail accounts to paypal is really simple. Since that time I added the e-mail account I started with when I missed the fact that they needed my PayPal e-mail address. My paypal account has three e-mail addresses hooked up to it now. I think I would like Review Stream better if they set us up with accounts. They say that don't want to do that because of stored information and such, but it would be easier to use, to see what you have reviewed, to know how much you have made, to get your referral code, and to work with it. As it is, I often find it frustrating.

Yeah it would be better if they had our own account I agree. I keep excel sheet to track my reviews and earnings. Also so I remember what I reviewed to make sure I don't write about same thing again. If you forgot your earnings you can request acc total to be sent to your email.

Yes they do pay pretty quickly. The very first time I requested payment they paid me the very same day. The second time I got paid I was paid within a couple of days, it was still pretty quickly. At first when I joined I wasn't really trying that hard to get the full rate on reviews. Now I am trying harder to get the full rate on them. One reason being I got kind of tired and sick of doing all these reviews and was starting to run out of things to review. So now I am trying to get the full rate for more of them so I can do less reviews and still make the payout by the end of the months. I have started to get the full rate for quite a few of them but it isn't that easy. Some of them I still have trouble getting the full rate. Occasionally I just can't get it and I finally just hit the check box for the bulk rate but then I am aggravated because I spent the time to get the full rate making the review specific and longer. One thing that has helped me to get the full rate of $2.00 instead of the 0.40 cent is being really specific. I think it helps a lot.

Hello, I totally understand what you are saying. It can be frustrating when you put so much effort into a review and you think you will be paid the $2 rate and you only get paid the bulk rate. I am still trying to work out the tricks to get paid the $2 rate all the time, I was paid 19 at $2 rate and 33 reviews at bulk rate. But I think with some of my reviews I could have tried harder. Think this time round I will do what you said and try harder to get the $2 rate and be alot more specific. I think also that a big part of being paid higher is the topic you choose. For example I notice reviews on latest technologies, phones or cars usually everytime pay well. I just wrote a review on the new self service checkouts at supermarkets and that paid $2. Good luck with getting paid $2 rate everytime, keep me updated on your success. Have you got a link to one of your reviews, so I can vote for you.

Good for you. I am not good at reviews, terrible at them and I do not have that much money to buy all the stuff I would love to write a review on and besides I do not have that much time to try the products out. It is nice that someone can review all these products. I do not have the time. Most of it is housework, writing my novel, singing, and learning Spanish and Italian. I would not mind reviewing a couple of programs but I have not that much time.

You don't have to write reviews on products, you can write it on music, places, anything you like. Even novels that you enjoy. It doesn't take me much time. I just wrote 3 reviews and earnt $4.40 in about half an hour. If you did a couple a night the money soon adds up. Sounds like you have some great hobbies though, I love singing too. Learning spanish would be quite interesting.
