I'm on vacation at ciao now and I'm not updated with their new system now. But because of your post I open my ciao accounts to know more about the topic of your discussions. I think what you mean to say with that effective today ciao will not pay $1 per referral not per review. Because their $1 per review payments was already removed months ago. But they retain their $1 referral bonus which means members will receive $1 referral bonus for each person they refer to join ciao using their referral link. Unfortunately ciao removed that $1 referral bonus now. But there's still good news anyway because ciao retain the 50% commission level. Even though there's no referral bonus now but the referrer will still earn 50% from his/her referrals up to 6 months earning. Ciao is still a nice legit paying site. See you there.

Don't worry about the double post. It was probably important enough to be said again.

Hello abyin007! I am not sure about what ciao are you taking about. The 1$ per review is gone since end of November or begin of December 2008 if I recall correctly. So your discussion is kinda outdated, or maybe you looped in the future somehow...rofl...but that is not that probable. At ciao you still get some cents for your articles if you are rated so it is still worth to write there.

Well, i guess they stopped to pay the 1$ per referral for at least 2 good reasons: The first is they have enough member now, the second is there were lot of cheaters making multiple accounts, with 1 review only, just to get the $1 reward. Now these cheaters have no more reasons to create fake referrals. About the 50% commision paid for the first 6 months of your referrals activity, they were paying it in the past too. Anyway, with all these changes they are just matching the other ciao sites rules and pay forms, due on ciao.co.uk as well as the others ciao nationalized sites, they already pay only for ratings

i gave them 2 thumbs up for doing that. It only means that they're trying to do their best to save and maintain the site. CIAO is growing everyday and of course, they need to lessen those features to keep it alive. It's for our own good as well, not only for them..

Actually, i dunno that they are paying $1 per review, what i know is that ciao will just going to paid me if someone rate my review. Well, if that is the situation i have nothing to worry. The best thing to do right now in ciao is to gain a lot of friends for at least we will gain from them. Its nice that they also add up commission payment 2 and 1. More earnings more fun. Lol!
