I have just checked this site and was interested in joining because of the hype it was getting here in mylot. I went through their FAQs and they said that anyone can join it, provided that one should have a valid paypal account and a valid e-mail ID. I do have a valid paypal account. So I filled up the registration form, in which there was no mention of country of residence. But after submitting the form it displayed that form cannot be submitted form this IP address. As far as I know my IP address is my computer. What could be the problem?

I'm a member of Bukisa and I haven't experienced not being able to register because of IP issues. You are right that Bukisa does accept non-US members as long as you have a valid paypal account and address. Have you tried to contact Bukisa? If not, then I suggest that you'd do so. For sure they can help you solve that issue. Also, try clearing your cache. Another option would be changing your IP address. Here are sites that'll help you: http://www.wikihow.com/Change-your-IP-Address-%28Windows%29 http://www.ehow.com/how_4550897_change-ip-address.html http://whatismyipaddress.com/change-ip The best thing really is to contact Bukisa. Best of luck

Hey meemingNEW, I just read your comment. I also think that I should contact them via mail.But changing of IP address is legal? just read what jp1990 has to say. If it is illegal I'm not gonna do that. But thanks for the information. How long have been you been a member of bukisa. Is that really a good site to join. waiting for your answer.

jp1990, changing of IP address in general it is not illegal. There are certain countries though and different states have varying laws governing the use of IP altering. If Bukisa is one of it, then my bad. I'm a Bukisa member for a couple of months already but I'm not earning that much unlike in Triond. which only requires you to earn $0.50 for you to get paid. Best of luck

I'm from Asia and I don't have this problem when I sign up. Your best solution is to contact Bukisa and see what they can offer to help. Beside Bukisa I'm also in Triond which is similar to Bukisa and I get better earning in Triond when compare to Bukisa.

Can you share your strategies on how we can maximize earnings with Triond. My earnings from there is really really slow. How many articles should I write everyday to improve my earnings?

Personally I think quality is better than quantity because you can write many articles but if you can't get visitors, it is still pointless. Of course it is always good to write more if you can. You can choose to write articles that are interesting & in demand, having unique content also helps. You should also try to promote on your own beside just depend on Triond.

I'm not sure if part of their terms and conditions is that there should only be one member per household. If that's the case, then someone must have already registered using your IP address. To answer you concern, you can try registering using another computer. You can go to an internet cafe and register from there. By the way, I'm from Asia and been a member for more than a year now. I have received three payouts from them already and am expecting another one this month-end. Good luck! Just keep writing and I'm sure you'll have a good break there.

jp you might have a point. but its very unlikely or say impossible that someone else used my computer. In fact that cannot happen. I am the sole user of my laptop. well suggestion you have provided seems to be logical to me. And that can be done easily by going to a nearby cafe and re-registering from there. anyway nice trick. But Is that site worthy enough to take that much of pain??

I'm from the U.S. and the founder looks like he is from jerusalem since he has the flag on his profile pick. So far I haven't had any problems. The best suggestion would be to contact them via e-mail. They should get back to you within three days. If they still can't answer your question try deleting all of your information and uploading it again. That might work. Have a great day!

yes, you might be correct as i could see options of Hebrew language on the site. And as far as I know Hebrew is spoken in Israel. Anyway we are not concerned with that much and I will follow your advice. Actually if some site have problem like that I just feel bad and don't want to visit them again. Its only because of the suggestions on mylot, I went there. hope you are fine keep in touch. have a nice day!
