I don't know how many people write reviews on Ciao UK too, but I was really surprised to find that I had been awarded £10 from December premium fund when I logged onto my account this evening! Pretty pleased about that as I have been a member of the site for sometime but only became more active at the end of November and in December... I review products I own, music albums I own or I've listened to, money making sites I've used and the like... as I also do on a couple other review sites. Anyone else using Ciao UK? Have you ever earned from their premium fund? Did you earn from premium fund of the Ciao.com site this month yet? Has this gone out yet actually?

You can still earn from ratings and the premium fund; I enjoy writing so I do reviews on various sites from time to time as more of a hobby; the incentive is low but at least there is some sort of incentive - I enjoy it either way...

Wow congratulations! I've been a member of ciao since August last year. But I only participated September. Been earning there too but not that big. I hope someday I can be rated exceptional too to qualify for a premium fund award but I'm not a good writer so I guess I'll just keeps on hoping. Congratulations again!

Thanks I am not sure what you mean... but you are required to write reviews in English on these review sites.

Yup, some may have come across my attributions... ©marina321 Dooyoo January 2009; Ciao.com January 2009; Ciao.co.uk January 2009 OR ©marina321 Dooyoo December 2008; Ciao.com December 2008; Ciao.co.uk December 2008 I write on all three It's no problem as long as you state the attribution at the end of the review as you don't want to be accused of plagiarising your own work.... plus you get to earn for your work on each site I found this out when I first joined Ciao.com and a mod thought I had plagiarised my reviews that I wrote on amazon, she told me I needed to give the correct attributions and it's been ok since. You will find a lot of people that write on one of these sites also writes on one or both of the others.

Congrats on your share of the PF, I got £22 this month, which is a first, I regularly get between £5-10 a month, the most I've had in the past has been £10 but because they increased the amount they're paying out for diamonds they've obviously increased the overall amount available to share in the PF. I don't know if the PF has been given out in Ciao.com this month yet but the diamonds have already been awarded :)

That's a pretty good amount, you must write a lot of reviews then... Congrats

I really do believe you get a bigger share of the PF in the months that you write more reviews - although this is not to encourage people to churn. I have been checking the pattern of my PF payments. If you write 5-10 quality reviews in a month which get decent ratings you will usually get a chunk of the PF, when I write just 1 or 2 reviews a month you will get less. Reviews which are written in popular categories tend to get bigger chunks of the PF too :)

Congrats to u yet again.. lol =D Looks like u are always having luck with all your online earnings.. hehe ^_^ I'm not longer active in Ciao after they changed their rules..

Thanks kun2349 Indeed I think lucky too... I only had £5 in the account on ciao UK; the earnings are really slow there. I know what you mean about just doing reviews; I tend to do it while here and on other sites too and some weeks, I don't even write a single reviewbut when I do, I give it my all... I love my music so I find writing music reviews is working for me plus I have also started to review those money making sites and since I have first-hand experience of them, those really flow well... happy myLotting:)

It would be good if Ciao UK can pay its users by Paypal. All because of those users who abuse the site, plagarising other people's works.

Congratulation on your reward.... I'm not with ciao.uk, but I was with ciao.com and I still have unpaid balance left on ciao. I never earn a premium account yet. BR.b
