Have you been paid by CIAO

Hi everyone, I'm curious to know if you are a member of CIAO and have been paid by them? I have been a member for a couple of months now. I requested a payment at the end of last month and though i was to receive it the second week of the following month, but I never received it in my paypal account. I did request it on the 28th of April though, so I thought maybe requesting it that late had something to do with it. Since then I've requested two more payments. Maybe I have their payment schedule wrong? I'm just not sure. If you've been paid by CIAO - when does it typically happen? And I'm from the U.S. - we haven't been banned by CIAO, so I don't think anything like that has come in the way of my payment. Thanks in advance!

Hi Jennlk, Ciao does pay . Since you requested payment in April you will be paid the next month that is they process it after Mid May and you will be paid in June. They have always been prompt in their payment, so there is no need to worry regarding that aspect...It is just that they have benned who they think are the spammers, but the real spammers come from different regions altogether and continue to thrive, A real pity...

I am with you on this one I'm afraid, requested in March and did not receive it..thought it was coz many people were banned and a subsequent decrease in the amount requested so requested again in April and not received it yet and there seems to be no trace of my original request... I have been paid by the site previously but it seems quite odd, maybe I should send them an email Let me know when you receive yours..

I do not like Ciao anymore. At first, it was a wonderful site and I was so active in making tons of reviews per day. I accumulated around $5 there already. One day, I just found out through the internet that Ciao is banning Asian countries from participating. One reason cited was because of poor English. Ciao is so unfair because not all Asians are poor in English. They should just have been selective in banning Asian members. At first, I kept wondering why I could not log into Ciao. So I emailed the Ciao admin four times in four weeks. But they did not even have the courtesy to reply back to tell me that Asian countries are banned. I found out about it around two months after I emailed them which they did not reply to.I just hope mylot won't be the same as Ciao.

I just signed up with the site but was never active with it. I don't know if this site really pays but all I know reviewstrem does. It seems that it's difficult to earn there compared to reviewstrem.

I used to be a member of CIAO and have been paid by them several times. Not that I wrote many reviews, but they sent me quite a lot of surveys to fill out, and these add up quite quickly too. I have invariably received payment from them when requested, but it does take 5 or 6 weeks. Don't worry, I have found them very reliable, but you do have to be patient :-)

i had checked ciao site yesterday and it says that my country is one of the banned site. However, If i have a pending money on my account, I just have to contact info@ciao.com and send a payment request. I did it and I immediately received an email saying that they are processing my request. So lets see if they do still pay me.

I have been paid by CIAO numerous times now - it generally takes about 4 weeks for their payment to come through though for me. I am in Australia so I am not sure if it is the same in the U.S. though, but I imagine it would be. I am very happy with their payout system, although I don't think they pay enough for their surveys sometimes.

i believe they'll still pay if you requested on the right time.. unless you're in one of the regions that CIAO blocked, you cannot request a payment at all.. So goodluck to all the CIAO members here..

I requested my first payment on ciao.com last April too and didn't get paid yet. As I undestand ciao will start to pay at second week of a month, but you will get in 5 weeks. By the way I'm from the UK. As I know ciao is a reliable company so I don't worry too much. They are just not fast paid. I also found my earnings were down on ciao.com, some ratings and comments I received were removed. Have you founded?
