    Should I continue to write at bubblews?

    I had been waiting over 90 days for my sept 2014 payments from Bubblews. I also have pending payment since Jan 2014, total up: $300 still unpaid. I did email to them, sent the screen shot and fill up the "Missing claim" but no news yet. Now I am worried. Should I continue to write at Bubblews ? Bugging the Bubblews team don't work at all.

    I completely understand you...I've rejoined the Bubblews website in August 2014 and up till now they owe me 1,250 dollars, I've made claims, written to them, but to no avail...

      oh liam you are here! Glad to see you. So, you are not bubbling there anymore or still go have a look once a while?

    No, you shouldn't. Arvind is just fooling everyone trying to act like a saviour of the world while continuing to overlook the payment issue as if there is no issue with Bubblews at all. He always stresses that future is bright for Bubblews, but we all know that it's going down sooner or later.

    You should probably spend some of your time on Hubpages. Granted, you are not going to make even half of what you can earn on Bubblews, but there is a certainty that you will be paid.  I like the fact that we, as writes, are respected and well regarded here. The Hubpages community is always there to help newbies like me, something you can't find anywhere else.

    If I will get my first payment from them, I'll continue to write there but it's already more than 60 days

      I read the recent public apology of Bubblews CEO but he stated on his bubble post that the site will continue to exist despite of the troubles and issues they are facing right now

    They aren't going to pay you what they owe.  Many people have learned this the hard way unfortunately.  Look up all the numerous complaints.  Those of us who didn't get paid were not all "rule breakers" etc. that's nonsense.  When my bubbles started getting a lot of shares on social media - they stopped paying me.

      really? I thought that they only pay USA, UK and Canadians, ignore us the international writers. Thanks for letting me know

    I stopped writing there now. I have over 700 $ unpaid. I do not think they are in a position to pay but Arvind is not coming out with the truth; just keeps beating around the bush.
    I am sure it's the end of the site.

      you too? Wow they owe you a lot! Do you still drop by and comment there or just no more?

    I've been lucky and always received my pay from them. Arvind has just posted 2 days ago that the site is struggling financially.

    Only active bubblers will get paid apparently and then if there is money they will try to pay off some of the back payments owed.

      At least now he finally admits what most of us figured out a long time ago.

      active means everyday post articles or just interacting? Nobody would continue to interact if they don't pay

    I stopped wasting my time at Bubblews over a month ago now.  I did not severe payment issues as the ones you have spoken about, I just concluded that it was a waste of time and my efforts would be better served elsewhere.  I think Bubblews is in trouble anyway, and if they do survive it will be in a much less generous form, which is probably why you are having these payment issues.

    Damn, the more of these stories I read, the happier I am that I bailed out as soon as I got my first $50 from Bubblews.

      peachpurpleposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      yes, I had heard of you before. I have heard lots of article about you. Feeling happy that you pulled out earlier heh?

    I wrote on bubblews, still have an account there, but I realised that the site is a lottery, and I really don't want to get my hopes up. So, I never reached the redeeming amount (50  dollars), I have 31 there. Maybe I'll write some more until the 50 dollars and try to redeem , but I'm really not expecting being paid. As I said, it sounds like a Lottery... maybe you will get paid, maybe you will not... you never know... I don't like that.

    Not only have I quit writing at bubblews, I deleted the 400+ posts I already had there. Those posts are now on my websites where I can actually get paid for them. I only got ripped off for $85 at bubblews, so I guess I should feel lucky.

      peachpurpleposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      lucky. You mean you deleted everything there after you had been paid?

    I made over $3.000 dollars on there they still owe me about $250.00 but I saw how things were changing after the new format they put in place but I really liked the old format better because you could interact better with other members but it's true when I started making money there things for me slowed down there also.

      peachpurpleposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      yes i like the old format too, user friendly. Too many changes aren't good either

    If you read Arvinds latest post it explains why earnings are down. They are not bringing in as much from the adverts as they are paying out. In other words, they don't have enough money. So if you are writing on Bubblews to earn money then don't bother. If you are writing for fun then carry on.

      ok, got your point. I shouldn't put my eggs over there. If I just want to play Easter egg hunt, then I go to bubblews.

    90 days was imposed for them to gain more and cheat more - give false hope that "if you follow the rules, you'll get paid after 90 days." It is a lie. They deleted my account after I accumulated $700+ in 90 days. I'm not a rule breaker.

      that is unfair, you had so much more there and they deleted you? really unfair

    Well it appears you have several answers, here; I have been a member of bubblews, for along time in 2 different post areas, my recent one since Jan. 2014, and I did receive my payments more than once.  I have been noticing that my Followers, is constantly changing there numbers, but; I like their format, and its much easier to post a post, and photos too.  However, they have changed their length of time for payments,  we can only redeem once in a month after $50.00, and wait about 60 days for a payment.  I would keep on emailing them. my nick name there is @deborah57.  You are welcome to add me, if you like.  Just keep messaging Bubblews, until you get an answer.  I would continue writing with them only because its a much easier Format, and post. Good luck.
