Donkeymails, one of the oldest (opened in 2007) and more trusted PTC/PTR/PTP in activity, has closed suddenly yesterday and the domain is sold by his owner for 11000 GBP, about $13000. On October 2015, several sites of the MultiMoneyGroup owned by the Dutch Sebas Broekhof were transferred to private registrars, which is something never good when it comes to PTC/PTR sites, and was suggesting that these sites had been sold. At the time Broekhof came in several forums to reassure the members, and told that it would change nothing. Later the registrant of Donkeymails has been given : Jennifer Leung, 43 Luton Road, London. If the owner of the domain was in UK, the admin was based in... Australia. Yesterday the domain has been transferred to SEDO parking, for sale with this note «a highly trusted” PTC network, with about 13 years of existence. should go to the who manages PTC, PTR ... good luck1» This shutdown was unexpected, as the site was paying twice a month and payed at the end of last month. Actually the other sites owned by the MMG group are still opened and seem to work. If you have some money in one of them, I would suggest you to ask for a payout. The golden age of PTCs started in the previous decade and lasted until about 2011, when many were still offering 1 cent/click. Only a few are still in activity, paying chicken feed. Donkeymails was still offering 1/4 cent for its emails, which was not bad actually. With its shutdown a page turns. Have you used or are you still using PTCs ?

I have not heard anything about Donkeymails for many years and assumed that it had closed a long time ago.

I left about 2 years ago when I had no more active referrals, but it was still alive and paying for what I read.

@topffer I suppose that we forget about such places when we cease to visit them.

No, don´t use them at all now. I preferred all you submitters that was paying five cents at the time although I did not get paid out there as they closed down ages ago too. Tasias Paid Links was another good one but did not last that long either. I did get paid out by Donkey Mails more than once but they got to be way too slow and it was arduous to wait for the pages to open at all. They were very good up until then.

@topffer I deleted them all as soon as I saw they were not going anywhere fast. Same with traffic exchanges there are at least three I am going to delete soon if they don´t get better. All You Submitters did pay 5 cents an e-mail yes but they did close quite soon also.

@topffer Oh that one I asked them to delete my account and she said that she could not? So anyway I did not go back again too wishy washy a set up. I have beem scammed by others too but I did delete them and not regret it either as others waited way too long thinking that they would be paid and a year later they are still waiting.

@lovinangelsinstead21 What was interesting in Cashnhits was the autosurf. It was possible to earn 8 to 10 cents/day just by running the autosurf in background without nothing to do. I do not complain against it, as it has been my best earner during several years. When they removed the autosurf, they started to decline.

I've just registered and still to be active.. The bad thing is that if the new owner will make some changes that affect the present members...

I was a member of one back in 2007 or so...can't even recall the name now. They had a $25 cash-out that I reached once, and got paid, but even then I was much happier here on myLot, and I pretty much abandoned it after getting paid. I'd joined as a referral as a favor to someone, and I figured once was enough.

I have no idea what this site Donkeymails is all about. Many have been sold, not for the better, though.

Never heard of this one before. But it's sad that another one has closed. There seem to be a lot.

I have never joined one of these sites, as they seemed to be a big waste of time for me.

@topffer I should have met you years ago when I was so suspect of these things.

@CoralLevang Too late, and everything is never perfect, I received a lot of spam and phish emails with this method.

Never heard about this till now. With "Services for this domain have been discontinued" the site is presently paying nothing to the owner. It is like buying a shop that has locked its doors which amounts to nothing more than a room with a sign out front but no walkin clients? Price might be a little high for a closed down business?

I also do not understand why closing a site to re-open it later??? Yes, the price is/was (it is not offered anymore for sale) not cheap, but the site had a very good Alexa ranking, in the 6000s, while myLot is 27319 actually.

@topffer not for sale anymore means I assume it got sold? Well if the rating stays with the site and provides a recoverable investment then it is worth it otherwise...
