That's great you finally got your payment from Ciao. See, I told you they were really fast on the payment thing. But you are right as now that ciao has removed pay per post from the site. But remember you still get to be payed when other members read your reviews and give you ratings. The more members go read and rate you the more your chances of getting paid right from the premium fund they have in store for the members. Each month ciao will be getting all the stats from members to see who has been rated many times. So it's not at all too bad except that you don't get the $1 upfront for making a review. I know this because I have not been writing any reviews on Ciao for quite a while but I still see my earnings go up. Still even a lot faster than here. That is because members have been going to my reviews and rating them. I have been paid twice by ciao and I just got my second payment yesterday. So don't worry too much and just keep on making reviews as your friends list gets bigger the more of them will be looking for your reviews to rate. Also try to visit your friends reviews then read and rate them. In good faith and gratitude those members return the favor and go to your reviews as well.

Yes I guess we get to earn for first time reviewer. But the point of all the recent earning changes is to get the best writing abilities from members. It appears that most members are just posting for the heck of getting a pay regardless of the quality of post. your post doesnt have to be really that good but it has to show your real and personal experience using the product and it doesnt have to be really exciting as long as it is written from your heart. Anyways let's see how ciao turns out in the near future. But if you need to do more writing you can see other stuff I've posted in my blog. cheers!

ooww i see, but people not see it as a good review, and will rate as much as they like, so i think quality of the review will be count anyway, i can't make such a violet member review i think i will get more focused on this two site first, mylot and ciao, i'll see other later

Me too. I got my first payment from Ciao. I'm so happy that I got paid with $16, its not that much but its all good. I hopw I'll be able to earn a little more to be able to cash out again on the 30th. Its really nice to receive your first payment right? I know we can earn more if we give a little more effort in reading and rating reviews. I got frustrated when they removed their upfront payments ut I'm still happy that I was able to paid and this in turn motivates me to earn more. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day and Happy Holidays. Ciao!

Congratulations on your payout. I also had some disappointments with Occupex and Thinkbux lately. Ciao's payment does boost my morale to a certain extend. If I will be submiting a review to Ciao in the future, I will make sure it is the best in my selection. The rest will be submitted to review stream instead. I hope that Occupex will be paying again even if it is taking a month to do so. Cheers and Happy MyLotting...

ciao is a review site, they pay the member for reviewing, rating, reading a product from their site, you can earn even more by inviting your friend, and get their (your referral) incentive earning for 6 months, out of that you can make a big friends community among reviewer i don't spent a whole day in ciao, coz it get me nuts later only rate and make some review, and i get that earning in only just 2 weeks after i registering, alone Interested? you can visit my profile to join, look the ciao banner on the right side

Oh Congrats my friend! I've not withdrawn my earnings from Ciao although it has already exceed more than the minimum because I am still waiting for my account wiht Paypal to get verified. I'm just sort of disappointed with Ciao because it removed the earning per review so the daily earning have significantly decreased. I'm just happy that I got some earnings from Premium fund last week which increased my total earnings. But except for that the daily earnings are but few cents. I can't even see which of my reviews qualified for the Premium fund so at least I would have an idea how to get qualified again. I really can't give you a tip on how to earn bigger with Ciao except to write the best reviews we could ever do so we could qualify for the Premium. But the competition is really very tough. Maybe we should just keep on supporting our supportive friends because only the ratings we got from them is our sure way of earning even some few cents.

I think it's not a problem before you let you paypal account get verified, it was fine, they still can transferred your payment into your paypal account ooww and i didn't understand about premium fund, can you explain it to me? And can you share your idea about getting qualified for that

Ciao offer the authors of particularly high-quality reviews - reviews which really make it easier for readers to make product decisions - extra rewards. Each month, a “Premium Fund” of up to $2,000 is divided among the best authors. The Premium Fund is, for the most part, automatically divided up. Various quality measures are taken into account, such as the length of the review, the author’s objectivity and the level of interest which he/she demonstrates. It is one way of encouraging all members to write real good reviews. I am so sorry though that I don't know how to see which of my writing qualified for the Premium Fund.

I have yet to even get started and they already changed the rules. Till I can get enough reviews going, it is gonna be tough to be the top five to win the prize money to get paid. But I am happy for you that you got paid. I am still looking around for a good paying site to host my articles. Once I can get one that is good, I will move to the next step of my plans!

Well, I am trying to do that. And any help I get a long the way would be most appreciated. I just hope I do not fall into the trap of being lazy and not get it done at all. So many things to do, so little success at the moment. It is not helping the morale much.

Congratulations.. I also got my payment and I really like ciao because they really pay. But unfortunately now they stop their pay per review paying system. We can't earn much in Ciao now. We can only earn cents now from the ratings we get from our reviews. Hopefully they will return the pay per review payment system next year. I am using my same username there. What's your username there? I will rate your reviews to help you earn there. See you there..

They still pay for the review, but in other system, by rank or for the first time reviewer, it's to reduce the unnecesity of unquality review ... Later i'll search yourname Happy mylot n ciao

Congrats! good news to hear. CIAO is great so, love it. You must be proud being one of the member of this prestigious, rich and famous company with several branches that operates around the globe. CIAO would not sacrifice their company's prestige just for a small penny, it being owned by MICROSOFT. So, trust CIAO. Why not add Entesvey to your CIAO friends.....
