I just came across several discussions about a review site known as CIAO. I've heard they are a good paying site. I went to their site and tried to find out what it was all about but I couldn't find anything other than it pays $0.25. Can anyone tell me about this site? Is it good? How does it pay? How much is the minimum payout? Is it available to international users? Is the $0.25 for every review you make or for each one who reads your review? Thanks in advance.

i really pays.. its owner is microsoft who bought it for 483 million$. Minim payout is 5$. 0.25$ for each one u write, but if ur review are very good then you can earn more that 5$ just by geting rating from other. My friend earn much from it. I earned 56$ this moth and had requested payout. i support international user, but make sure the site is the same one in my profile banner. There are some other ciao sites which does not pays for international user. If u are not a member then just thought my banner from my profile... happy loting..

Ciao is a trusted and reliable site that pays to its members regularly and on time. Aside from earning 0.25 cents for every product review you made that has at least 120 words, you also earn additional when members read and rate your reviews and when you make a review that has dollar signs then the number of sign it has corresponds to the number of times more you would earn from that product. Let's say that if the product has 3 dollar signs (the maximum you get) then your earnings is 3 times from the rest of the products. You could also earn from referral system that is $1 for each referral you have had under you and that is when they start making their first review. It is available for international users since it's money processor is Paypal, just make sure that your country accepts Paypal since this is the only mode of payment. The minimum amount for payout is just $5 and payment is done at the second week of the month, usually within the 13th and 15th of the month. Make sure to request it at the end of every month so you will be qualified for payment for next month.

CIAO is a review site. You earned 25 cents per review besides from the bonuses from the number of page view your reviews got and the comment it gets. Yes it accepts international member and pays through Paypal every the 15th day of the next month. The minimum is just 5 dollars that you could reach in just a couple of days if your active. They also have referral system.

yes, they are paying and i make about 65 from them last month and they paid me on the 13 this month. Now they reduce the rate per review to 25 cents. it was a dollar previously and they are open to international members and my account is created in china so you have no worry about membership restriction. You will get 25 cents for each review as long as you wrote more than 120 words and additional few cents if someone view and rated it. The min payout is set at 5 and they pay thru Paypal.

Ciao pays quite well as it is owned by Microsoft. It pays 25 cents USD for each product review that you do. I also write in Ciao using the same handle. The site is also great for checking out the pros and cons of each product. It is also a nice place to make new friends. Payments are sent to you via Paypal.

I just registed as some of other mylotters are recommending it as well! I think you have got tons of information from other mylotters and I think it worths a try since it's just 120 words for review and it sounds not a lot of work!

yes, I think it's pretty easy to get 100 words in. Hope I will do well.

Ciao is elegantly simple, I have just joined and I am already doing pretty well after only a few days. Basically you write reviews on products that are 120 words or more and for each review you get paid 25 cents upfront, and a couple of cents each time someone rates your review helpful on top of that. The minimum payout is only $5 and can be reached by posting 20 reviews, which I found really easy. I don't know whether it's open to international users, although I do now that hey have a UK site but the pay may be different. If you want, you can sign up using the link in my profile. I'd appreciate it although I know you probably have already got 4 affiliate offers in this thread alone :D.

Ciao is definetly incredible. Very well paying site. Also, if your the very first person to right a review on a product, you earn DOUBLE the money you would off a normal review. Ive made tons of money off ciao and mylot and i love them both. online earning is amazing :) never gunna quit. Happy mylotting.

I just started using it so can't be of much help. But I did notice it took me writing several reviews before any amount of money actually showed up in my DashBoard. It now shows I have $1.08 in my account which isn't too bad considering I've only used it a few days and don't really have the hang of it.
