I Give Up!

Does anyone still have any trust in the PTC industry AT ALL? I've stuck with the heavy hitters that have paid me in the past, but they are all but gone. IsabelMarco requires you to upgrade, and even then, you may not get paid for 60 days or more. I upgrade a month at a time, so I have to spend a minimum of $18 ($9 per month upgrade) in order to get the money that I earned the last several months. I'm not going to do it again. I'll try to get this next payment, but that's it, I'm not wasting anymore time. CrewBux used to pay within a day, then they went longer and longer, they changed formats, new servers, you name it, but they are still not paying out. Twice I've had my payments canceled while they changed things, and had to request payment again and wait my turn in the queue. I have no idea whether I'll be paid again or not, but if I am , that's it for them too. I joined SandraClicks because they were guaranteeing instant payment. I haven't recruited heavily, but I figured even if I can get a $5.00 payment on my own every couple of months, I would be happy. Well guess what? They are limiting the number of payouts that they will accept per day, so if you are not requesting payment at a particular moment of the day when it is opened again, and you're not holding your tongue just right, you're not gonna get paid! OldSchooBux is till paying (as far as I know), so I'll still click there, and of course NeoBux is still paying isntantly, and although it is slow earning there, it is steady with no admin screwups, new servers, etc. I'll stick with NeoBux for sure, until I see a reason not to. Oh yea, and ClixSense too. There doesn't seem to be as many ads right now, but they're still solvent as far as I know. I am doing a few of the PTR sites and they are very slow, but so far I've learned that DonkeyMails has no minimum payout, so I requested payment the other day just to see how long it took them. Well well, I got my $1.69 in just a day or two, so I'm happy there. If you want to try any of these, the links are on my profile. Other than that, I give up. How about you?

I give up too, what a waste of time and effort! I had purchased 5 referrals at Isabel Marco that they just zapped away from me with all their new organization. They can keep what I have in my account. I'm not paying a penny to upgrade. I'll stick with my freelance writing, at least my efforts there bring in extra cash.

All of this makes it hard for people who want to stay at home and make a living without spending a fortune in startup costs and get involved in work at home scams. I'm definatly going to try the couple of sites that you mentioned. I hate to work out of my home as most of my earnings go to getting a ride to and from work and paying for childcare, when I don't think anyone else can take care of my children the way I can.

I just started recently with donkeymails. Haven't earned enough to request payout though.I've not signed up with any of the others that you have mentioned. Though I was a member at one point with clixsense and they suspended my account, i guess on account that I hadn't visited the site in awhile. I've been playing winster since I joined through inbox dollars. Do you belong to that one? It is a very good site. I got a check for $27 not too long ago. I think I have a link to it in my profile.

Yeah, I'm getting a little fed up too, and will be whittling down my list. Myster-emails consistently pays, but she's closing the site permanently in a couple weeks.

I gave up too,I was a member of IM too and refused to upgrade as they even stated in the forum that there was no guarantee you would make back what you had invested.

I thought you were having some good luck with clixsense? Anyway I have never had the patience to keep working any of these until payout. I have heard good things about Neobux though.

I also have lost trust in this industry. Though I'm currently a member of many such sites, bust most of them are not paying.

I gave these up several months ago, I found it was just to much time for too little reward. And then when they started disappearing right in front of me I figured, I was just another sucker.

I have not requested money from any yet, but I am sure, when I do I will figure out which ones I should keep and which ones I should get rid of. Thank you for letting me know about some of the sites!

i've gotten rid of most of them. the ones with time limits(aka sign in every day or we'll boot you),the ones that take forever to get ten cents, the ones that change their rules halfway to payout or replace money with contests for prizes you never get. some of the surveys are still good,but it seems a lot of sites in general are closing.

I'm considering some of them mentioned.But first of all,it's hard to choose the one as no one can 100% be guaranteeing to paid out your earning.Maybe due to the damned economy problem.Anyway,thanks for your shareing,precious experience.

Up till now the only site that did not disappoint me was donkeymails. I won a ten us dollars from the site , a raffle price and was really skeptic whether I was going to be paid or not. I have a few other sites and I am working hard to receive payment but I do have doubts whether they are legitimate or not. © ronaldinu 2008

i don't know about the others but the moment I reaqched payout and requested for a payout from neobux,I was paid $2 to my pay pal account just today. They made instant pay out. I was pleasantly surprised. I had reached payout at Idelbux earlier but tehy said that tehy were not paying non premium members.

I do Inbox Dollars, that is all. I refuse to get locked in to all those crazy sites. Most of them are too confusing for me to figure out anyway. My offline life is trying enough. Online I like to keep it simple.
