myLot members - What do you look in a 'Paid To' site before joining it?

India
April 2, 2007 8:10am CST
For past week or so, I have been browsing various online money making site, which promises paying its members right from clicking, to participating in discussions, to playing games, to reading mails, to just keeping the browser window open, and nothing doing (!). Some of these sites are old and well reputed, while some are still growing, and some are brand new. Browsing these different kind of sites has been a nice enriching experience for me. Whenever I come across a site, I take my time to decide, if I would like to be a part of it or not. There are certain issues, mainly financial, and environmental, that I consider before giving that site a try. First, I assure if the site is genuine, and what is its reputation among its members. I also see the atmosphere on the site, and the attitude of its members, and administration. There have been some sites, where I did not got any payment proof, but because I like the attitude of that site as a whole, so I decided to become a part of it. However, what I would like to discuss in this post is what has been experience of my fellow myLot members regarding this whole online thingy? I would like to ask a few questions to all those, who have tried to venture into different money making sites Some of those are: 1. What do you look out in a site, when you decide to join it? 2. Would you like to take an intuitive decision while joining a site? For example, you might not get enough evidence (basically payment proof, or any goodwill info) about a particular site, but still, you like it, and hence, you decide to join it. 3. Is ‘free sign up’ plus impressive returns good enough for you to persuade to try to give that site a try, or would you enquire a bit ore about it, till you get convinced that they are legit? In fact, I got a long list of questions to ask to both the experienced, and the newbie enthusiasts here, but it would be better, if we can start a discussion here, rather than making it a long post (which I see it has already become!). So, let me know, what are your consideration(s), when you decide to join a new ‘Paid to' site. Thank you.

For me it has to be free, I prefer to be paid for actual actions and not some downline or referral business. It as to fit into my life and not threaten to take it over. When someone suggests a site to me I expect them to tell me what is good and maybe bad about it in their eyes. What they do to earn and let me decide if I can do the same or similar. Sure will be interesting to see what others have to say and I look forward to your future discussions.

thats sensable, i however dont depend much on other's feedback, n i also would like to give referrals a try, if they make decent payouts, but if i refer a site to someone, i would like to make sure that its not a scam - i think we own personal liablity to person(s) whom we refer something, no one likes to waste a few weeks, on a site, only to discover that its not legit ....

I am pretty new to the make money online thing. But what I have started looking for is websites that have a good reputation from their members. I want to hear at least 3-4 testimonials or see some proof of payment from members that they have actually made money from said website. I also like to see what the minimum payout is, if there are any check processing fees, what the payment option is, how long it takes to receive payment, and if you receive some type of bonus for signing up on the website. The fact that it is free to join is also very important to me seeing that I am trying to make money not spend it. I also want to see how many referral levels the website pays. I am having trouble getting referrals now because I am just starting out, but i am hoping that once i receive my first checks & payments, my friends will believe me and they will want to sign up too.

I look for sites that (1) has a good reputation. I usually try to search for it here on mylot and try to see what others have to say about it. (2) Does not require me to put in any money to join. If they require me to put in a even a small amount of money, I will think twice about it. Of course, if they have a paid upgrade and I am happy enough with the program to upgrade, that's another story entirely. (3)Are applicable to my country. I am from the Philippines and there are some sites which are applicable only to members of certain countries. If they don't include the Philippines, I don't waste my time joining it. (4)Can pay in e-gold or check. You see, paypal is not accepted yet in the Philippines as mode of receiving money. So I would require that the site is not a paypal only site. I do hope, though, that the Philippines may eventually be accepted as a country where paypal payments can be received. There are simply more programs who prefer paypal than other payment options, and they are very good, promising programs. You can bet that once the Philippines can accept paypal, I will jump into those offers.

I really like myLot but sometimes I couldn't find many discussions to respond to, so I tried joining another site for fun, too. I was referred by a member here. When I first tried it, it was okay until I discovered many questionable things about the site's reputation. I also had a bad experience with it. It's not about the money (actually, this site offers more) but I'm worried about its longevity or staying power, and its credibility. Thus, to answer your discussion, what I look into other sites (whether paying or not) is the capacity to keep up with what the site's trying to uphold, a clean and fun site, and the reputation to stay put.

Well when I go around online to search for different GPT sites these are the things I look for that normally make me want to join. 1. I want to know how many people have actually been paid out by the given site. I don't really want to join a site unless I can see proof of people being pay. If there is no proof then I feel like it would be a waste of my time. 2. I look for how high or low the min. payout is. I don't want to join a site with a really high payout minimum. Most of the sites I join are between $15 and all the way down to a no min. payout. 3. I like to know that there is a good variety of offers to complete which will mean a better chance at making more money. 4. Finally I make sure the site I'm looking for is free to join, I don't want to have to pay for a membership just to make money. That would be defeating the whole purpose. So these are the things I look for before I join a GPT site.

hi,friend,here are more than 82000 population working day and night from allover the globe.And may be some of them experts in online earnings.Over a period of 8 months here no body confirmed that particular site is good,but every body wants to promote some links for their referrals.We don't know there may be some really high earning sites,but no body revealing those here. Take dorm check,clixsense,wealth tool box,inbox dollars,goldage forum,paidforum,goodleads,cashcrate,hits4play,mailblings,....i heard another 50 sites from different members and at the same time some or others wrote all are scams.. So decide your self by experience or from real friend who already earning..
