I have just checked out CIAO and found that they have reduced their bonus payment from $1 to $0.25 per review !! I think they have found most people just writing reviews about products which they even don't know. This may be a factor but what about people writing real reviews? What about you people how much are you paid by CIAO so far? what kind of reviews did you write ? In all means this is a very bad news :(

I heard rumors before about the rate of ciao will be reduced, so now it's going down to .25 that's very disappointed but maybe cioa knows that people there are reviewing products even they don't have it or use it for the sake of big rate per review. I got paid from ciao before about $20 and now waiting for my $24 from them. So maybe now, people will slowing down in writing reviews there lolz. Cheers.

I was just talking about something like this happening. I was waiting for them to reduce their review rate. All the sites end up doing something like this before long. I have made about $11 or $12 there so far. Now I wish I would have typed up the reviews I have written down earlier. Oh well. I can still make more money in less time than I can here.

Before I write review in Ciao, I already read about this matter. I was already aware that the 1 dollar per review is just a promotion, and soon they will change teh incentive program so I am not actually surprise with their decision, but anyway, its really sad to think that we have lost around 75 cents each review. They have another incentive program which they call the premium funds wherein they give incentives for a great review.

I believe it is reasonable enough to do that and it's a long over due I guess. The offer is been there for more than 10 months already then recently a whole new Ciao emerge with a lot of crappy reviews. So, I guess that the reason why they have reduced it. I was paid $20+ for last September and last October I was able to earn at least $47. Just hope I could get such amount sometime next week.
