What is a GPT Site?

Updated on June 17, 2014

Make Money Online with Get Paid To Sites

GPT sites are an easy way to make money online for free. With a GPT site you make money for completing free offers. There is no catch. Simply follow the TOS, complete offers, and get paid each month.

GPT stands for Get Paid To. I created this page to help explain what Get Paid To sites are, how they work, how to make the most money possible with them, and list GPT sites that pay.

I have received a check every month for more than 3 years now from GPT sites. I know from experience that they really pay. GPT sites are an easy way to make money from home.

What are GPT Sites?

Get Paid To sites are websites that pay you to do something. Most GPT sites pay you to do one or more of the following tasks:

Complete Offers

Click on Ads

Read Emails

Complete Surveys

How Do GPT Sites Work?

Get Paid To....Do What Exactly?

GPT sites get paid by offering advertising space. Companies and individuals pay GPT sites to run banner and text ads, as well as to display offers for the GPT members to complete. The more traffic a site gets, the more they can charge for their advertising space. This means that GPT sites require a lot of members in order to make money with their advertising. In order to get more members so they can then charge more for their advertising space, they pay their members...that's you!

GPT sites aren't scams. Companies want your contact information so they can send you ads, hoping to get your business. GPT sites pay you in return for viewing ads and submitting your information to companies. It's all just business.

How to Get Started

Get Organized and Earn More

If you go into GPT sites blindly and just start creating accounts every where and don't get organized, you may earn a few bucks here and there but you won't earn as much as possible.

I've learned a lot about how to be successful with GPT sites. Here's a plan mapped out for you so that you can earn the most possible with GPT sites:

  1. Create a free email account to use just for the GPT sites. This is a must because the email address you use to complete offers will get spammed. I like to use Google (gmail). Be sure to create an email address that you will remember.
  2. Join a few GPT sites (no more than five until you get the hang of it). Use all of your truthful information (legal name, home address, etc when you register). Use the email address you created in step 1 to register with all the GPT sites and use the same password for every site. You don't want to have trouble logging in because you forgot your email address or password. Be sure to read the FAQ to each site. Some sites require you to "cashout" in order to get paid. Some require you to "submit" offers after you complete them. Be sure you know what each site requires.
  3. Bookmark the sites you sign up for so that you can come back to them. I also recommend creating a spreadsheet in Excel of the sites you register with so you can keep up with your earnings.
  4. If you do not yet have a PayPal account, get one now. Many GPT sites pay only via PayPal. Be sure you have the email address you created for the GPT sites added to the PayPal account.
After you have all of this in place, start making money. Make enough to cashout with each site and decide which ones you like the most and focus your time and energy on those sites. I prefer to really focus on three at a time.

After you're in a rhythm and have it all figured out, start recruiting referrals into your downline on your favorite sites so that you can earn even more.

How to Get Offers to Clear

Unlock Your Earning Potential with the Highest Clear Rates Possible

So many people join GPT sites and then get discouraged because all of the offers don't complete. They end up quitting before they even earn enough for their first cash out.

It's important to note that no one has a 100% clear rate. This isn't due to the GPT site, it is the result of the company that paid for the offer to be displayed. Either they failed to pay the GPT site for their advertising space (which means the GPT doesn't have the money to pay you) or the company claimed that you didn't complete the offer correctly. A very normal clear rate for offers on most GPT sites is around 60%. If you have your security settings turned up high on your computer (as I do), you may see a clear rate around 40%. That being said, GPT sites are still an easy and legitimate way to earn money.

There are things that you must do in order to get your offers to clear with GPT sites. They are:

  • Clear your cookies before logging in to the GPT site. Clear your cookies after you complete each offer.
  • Keep the final page of the offer up for at least 5 minutes. Even if you complete it correctly, it might not clear if you close it right away.
  • Don't do a ton of offers at once with a particular GPT. My rule of thumb is to do about 10 offers at a time. Then I move on to a different site for a while.
  • Don't forget to "submit." Most GPT sites require you to submit an offer after you complete it.

      Thanks for sharing this info. Really helpful. I've just started to work with four GPTs, and didn't get paid yet, but my friends did.... so, I'm really looking forward to get paid.

      @myneverboredhands: I made $67 this month with Squishy and I only spent 2 hours on it this month. So, I'm super excited about that one. GPT sites may not be the kind of work you want to brag to friends about, but when money is tight GPT sites are a great source of extra income.

      What a great GPT blog you have set up here friend. Yes, GPT sites are certainly a great way to earn some good money. Now, it doesn't compare to what one would get through a full time job that pays minimum wage, but if you're simply looking for a method that can earn you a decent amount of extra cash in a relatively short period of time, then the GPT industry is definitely worth checking out.

      For the past 3 years, I've promoted this industry quite extensively through my own blog, YouTube, forums, etc., and one of the things that I've always emphasized to my viewers is the frustration that many go through when they begin using this program, which is simply non-crediting offers. I do believe that this is one main reasons why many people end up leaving this industry and it's such a tragedy because this frustration can easily be addressed if people take the necessary steps to ensure their credit such as, clearing their cookies as mentioned above.

      To thrivingmom, I loved how you pretty much summarized those important steps in such a simplified form. The tips you give are fantastic and I commend you for that my dear because unfortunately, there are many people like us that promote this industry, but don't go into the details of it, at least, not to your extent.

      However, if I may, I'd like to add on to what you said regarding the necessity to clear your cookies and such because it is such an important part to preventing those offers from going to that infamous pending folder.

      Firstly, yes, it's important to clear those cookies before and after every offer you complete. However, before you even do this, you need to set up your browser to accept all cookies. Firefox is the number one recommended browser to use for these offers. If you're using Internet Explorer, do NOT use version 7 as this browser is known to cause crediting issues. Use either version 6,8 or the newly released IE 9.

      Now, as for clearing the cookies themselves, I also strongly believe that there needs to be a special emphasis on the fact that you need to do so while you're LOGGED OUT of the GPT site and NOT clear them while you're logged on. The best analogy I can think of is that cookies, for the purposes of this business, are like little signs that say âSend the credit here!â Every time you log on to a site, a cookie goes out carrying that sign so if you were to stay logged on and then clear your cookies and cache, and go back to complete an offer, you'd essentially be deleting that important "Send the credit here" sign. So you can imagine that it would be extremely difficult for the computer that issues you your credit to not credit properly. Sometimes the credit will find itâs way to you. Sometimes it wonât.

      Other things can also prevent you from getting credited, such as having Yahoo and Google toolbars enabled on your browser. This one's another biggie, having your anti-virus program turned on while completing offers is also a big no-no. Another thing that should be disabled is your pop-up blockers because sometimes the computer that issues your credit sends the code, which is basically the key to getting your credit, and may very well end up on one of the offer's pop-up messages and/or windows. So you can imagine that by blocking it, you're basically destroying any chance of getting that credit.

      Now, as for staying on an offer's final page for 5 minutes, yes, that is another valid point. However, it needs to be said that during this waiting period, you shouldn't be doing anything. Don't check your email, donât surf the net, watch videos, or anything else. What you want here is silence in cyberspace, so the offer can credit in peace.

      If the offer doesn't credit within that time frame, it maybe an offer that credits on a pre-scheduled basis so it's just good to move on. If the offer doesn't credit within 24 hours, assume that it won't for the reasons that thrivingmom mentions above. You can do everything right, but there are so many variables that come into play here that ultimately prevents you from getting credited 100% of the time so whoever is reading this comment, please bare that in mind.

      There are other steps that you can take to further ensure your offer's approval, but since I maybe overstaying my welcome (understandably of course) with this very long comment, I'll just leave it at that.

      To thrivingmom, I hope you find some value within my comment that you can use to share with others. To the other readers that see this, I hope you find my info useful and please be grateful to thrivingmom here for going out of her way to provide you with such great insight into the GPT industry and how it operates. Trust me, there's not that many of us promoters that really like to go into detail about anything we promote because to a lot of people, it's not worth the hassle. However, these are the people who just have one thing in their minds - MONEY and making it quick without putting much effort, which is sad, because ultimately, just with a little effort that's put into promotions like this, on a consistent basis will go a long way to convince others to consume your content.

      Always keep in mind fellas, it's NOT all about you, it's about what you can offer to others and doing so in a way that can be perceived as both valuable and irreplaceable. ;)

      GPT sites are an excellent way of earning some needed extra cash. At first it may be hard for beginners to make money but with experience comes... cash. All you have to do is know how to offers and your good. Google is your friend. Good luck to all starters.

      happy money making,

      Hey, if i login into my gpt site account from a different internet connection that's not cheating is it?, Because i basically go over my momâs house to help around the house, and then get on my personal laptop & start doing surveys. Once iâm done helping my mom out I come home and go back to work on my surveys = )..Now because those are two different internet connections am i breaking any terms or tosâs..I hope iâm not and im not trying to neither..

      I guess that I do belong to one GPT although I always classified it as a shopping site. I have the mypoints toolbar installed on my computer so get paid to search through them, I get paid to shop at sites affiliated with them, and you can get paid to play games. I had never thought of mypoints as a GPT though. Funny.

      @youyongli: Use your personal email to register with the GPT site, but create a separate email account to use when signing up for offers or you'll get a lot of junk emails. Some are scams, just like with anything online. Don't do anything that asks for your credit card. Any legit GPT site is 100% free.

      The most money I have ever make online is through FanBox. Not only do I earn through my OWN blog, but by completing all the steps on my "Path To Success" graph, I also because a coach which makes me money from my clients. It's unbelievable. Just in the past year I've made over a thousand dollars. FanBox is NOT a scam at all, it's a real money making community and the support you get in phenomenal. I have not found a site yet that pays like they do. It takes a while to understand it, to work it, but in the end, holy cow does it pay out.

      This is a really informative lens. I am a user of many GPT sites, my favorite being Cashcrate and Inboxdollars. Starting out with these sites can be very frustrating at first. Especially if offers don't clear. I thought it really stood out, that you went into detail about properly achieving this. I recently touched on the cookie issue in one of my blogs. It can be read here if interested, www.fivestargpt.blogspot.com -Thanks again for the great lens. I look forward to reading more of your content in the future.

      I have been using these sites for years. My favorites being Acmegpt.com and caveofwonder.com, they pay well and fast some of the best in the business! I had to find a way to make money when i was injured and out of work, you do not get rich but I did make 5- 10 dollars extra per day per site, i still use them to save money for holidays

      Indeed you wonât make a fortune on GPT sites but spending a little bit of time per week on it can bring a little income. Referring friends and earning a commission on each offer they complete is something I have also started to do. Recently, I registered on PanelRewards.com mainly for this reason: high rates on both offers and referrals. What I feel also important is to be able to get your money quickly and not being blocked by more than a minimum of $1 collected to be able to get paid.

      The idea of college and falling in debt recently made me start checking out gpt sites like the article talks about, I've joined a few by now and I think my favorite so far would have to be swagbucks. It's the first one I joined and I think the least complicated. I've earned about $20 in gift cards in a month without investing much time. I really only do low payout offers like watching videos otherwise I know I could've made a lot more. So far I'm buying the $5 amazon gift cards with my points because they're the best deal and I can use the money to buy college textbooks from amazon when I need them! :)

      I got caught up in the whole GPT thing about 2 1/2 years ago and have loved it every since. I use 2 different site my favorite being Rewarding Gamers. Me and my kids are really into gaming so Rewarding Gamers comes in handy. We don't really have a lot of cash but i am able to earn points from watching videos, liking facebook pages and have received gift cards like amazon, gamestop, and even controllers. In my opinion i recommend people try to find a GPT cause it can be very beneficial. If you want check out Rewarding Gamers. My name on there is Eternal im willing to help and am on regularly.

      GPT sites are great earning opportunity, especially for residents of UK, USA, Canada, Australia. One of the legitimate GPT sites is OfferNation. This program has been online for more than 3 years and so far is paying without issues. It has wide range of earning features and fantastic referral system: you will earn 25% of all your downline referral earnings. Payout is only $1.00, which should be easy to reach. If you are interested, you can register under my referral link:

      Also, my advice is to read Help Guide for new members and Terms of Service carefully.
