Have you heard anyone claiming they received payment from READBUD? I write an article about this ReadBud, saying other online earner to avoid this site, since in my experience with this site, I earn $50.00 (the minimum cash-out balance) and tried to withdraw it, but until now I don't receive their payment. Then I search for someone who claim if they receive their payments, but I saw none. Until a guy ask me what is my proof that READBUD is a scam. Well if the site pays me, then I have a proof of payment, but if a site DON'T pays me, I don't have a PROOF OF NOT PAYING. He might have a point that ReadBud is not a scam since I don't have any physical proof. But those anyone here have that proof, that this READBUD site is paying?

not yet. ... ... as you rightly said, .. if they pay you, once you reach the payout, and within a reasonable time .. of around two=three weeks, from the date of request/ and or/ date of reaching the threshold limit.. then, it is GENUINE. OTHERWISE, the site could be classified as SCAM. the party, who asked you for proof, for considering this to be a scam, .. might be too new to online.. FORGIVE him/her. i have not heard of READBUD payment, till now. =-========================= but, I find the articles very very interesting. so, I still read at readbud.

The articles might be that interesting but what we wanted to know in here is if RedBud is a scam. If you find those articles too interesting then why on earth will readbud pay for those people who visited their articles? Wherein it is interesting enough so that people will be viewing it even without promising them that you will pay them if they view the interesting articles.

Readbud is a scam that I assure you. Don't waste further time there. My information came from a friend who even invited me to join this site that's why I joined this site. But after my friend reached the payout, Readbud refused to pay her so she told me about it and she was very disappointed because she invited a lot of people to join this site only to be scammed.

So far two things about this site puts up yellow lights about this site! First, I don't see a forum. A good site lets the people in it talk! Secondly, why do they wait until you've earned $50? I can't imagine trusting a site that is so young and so little written about it. I do not see it listed in the two sites I trust for a review! I signed up but I won't do a lot in there until I hear someone I know tell me they've been paid!

I haven't received their payment milestone yet but I'm hoping that I'm not going to be disappointed by the time I eventually reach that milestone! I have noticed that no one has mentioned anything in terms of receiving payment yet. I will hold the faith until they prove otherwise and I will keep on reading their articles for payment. If it is legitimate then it will make all the difference in the world and can be placed on an equal footing with My Lot! Still, it's early days I guess. I will be interested to know what others have experienced that have actually requested payment from readbud. Andrew

I'm afraid that Readbud really is a scam, if you read these two discussions it should make it pretty clear http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2339888.aspx. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2352258.aspx? There doesn't seem to be anybody on here who has been paid out I'm afraid

Hi jamed, I have also not seen anyone saying that they are been paid by readbud. When did you redeem it, can you tell the time frame so as we know to continue it or not.

How long has it been since you tried to withdraw your money? I have been wondering myself if it was worth my time to continue with readbud. I know it takes several weeks sometimes for me to get payment from some sites.

I haven't saw any payment proof for ReadBud till now but I haven't also searched for it. But I joined readbud a few weeks ago and then just leaved it as I read some negative reviews and their pay rate was also so high. And I don't think they will be able to pay each and every user with that much high payrate. I have also read that with time the number of articles available to read decreases and reaching payout becomes tougher.

Oh that is so sad to hear. I am also reading from readbud for four days now. But after i heard this from you, I somewhat feel disappointed and weary. How many days since you earned 50 dollars and make a request to withdraw? If you happen to be granted a withdrawal and the money goes on your paypal, kindly tell us please. Hope that this is not a scam.

I have not reach the minimum payment yet. Since you already reach the minimum payment and you requested for cashout. I have questions are they going to give it right away once you requested for it. Or maybe you need to wait for sometime before they could give you the payment. Did you try to contact them and let them know about your situation?
