ClixSense Going Bad?

United States
October 5, 2009 3:53pm CST
ClixSense has been a reliable payor for years. But recently there has been a little controversy surrounding their business practices. It all started a few days ago when William Jackson, the owner Clicksia and Incentria was allegedly banned from ClixSense and his account deleted. This occurred soon after Mr. Jackson referred nearly 4,000 members to ClixSense in an effort to capitalize on their upgrade policy which rewards active promoters. Each referred member would gain 10c for their upline, but only if their upline was an upgraded member. Or at least that was the case until the fiasco of Mr. Jackson's banning occurred. They then changed their policy to reword active promoters with a measly 1c per referral. It's also been reported that ClixSense has not given a reason for banning Mr. Jackson and that they have been unresponsive to inquiries regarding his account. This doesn't look good for them. But it wouldn't be the 1st controversy they have been involved in. The owner of ClixSense is a guy by the name of Steve Girsky. Mr. Girsky happens to also be one of the original founders of StormPay. Back in 2006, Stormpay was involved in a huge scandal caused by their refusal to pay requested earnings to their members. To date, these members still have not been paid.

I dont think clixsense is quite as good as it used to be, but I have been a member for about two years and I see no evidence that it is a scam. I would continue with clixsense, if they don't pay you you might have evidence it is crooked but as for now i would say it is a safe site.

As you say we can't get a definitive answer untill they stop paying to their member. Even this, we have to be careful about what's going on clixsense

Wow - I had no idea this was going on. Where did you hear about this ? Maybe I'm just totally blind and missed it somewhere! I have been a member of Clixsense for about 2 or 3 months now. Haven't reached payout yet either! Hopefully Clixsense doesn't continue to go down hill and close or something. I like that site!

They should have the right to update their rules/terms of service if a loop hole in their policy is having them taken advantage of, but they should be paying out William Jackson if he abided by their rules at the time. I'm not really surprised, though. Companies do funny things all the time that's a little shady, but in their best interest. iTunes, for example, has strict limitations on the music that I've bought and paid for, which isn't really right. It's kind of like that commercial where the girl buys the bike, but is only allowed to ride it within the tiny red square.

I always seemed to have problems with it. It has been so long since I have used them. I don't think I could go back. I use a couple of other good paying sites.

Good grief I hope they stay legit. I've received one check from them and after that decided to raise my cash out limit to 20.00. I'm a little over 13.00 right now. They have been around for a long time and I know there are always people who will try to harm a legit site. I'd not heard anything about the Jackson incident so hopefully it is just a rumor. If not, perhaps there is more to the story than we know. How in the world did he get 4,000 referrals. Even being the owner of those two sites, if I was Clixsense that would raise an alarm for me as well. I guess time will tell if clixsense stays the legit site it is known to be. For my own and other members best interests let's hope so.
