Making Money With Paidoffers: A Review
Make money online with Paidoffers; A Review
This is the time of the year when most people are actively seeking ways to make a little money on the internet, and I'm not talking about the internet Gurus here.
While searching online, one particular site stood out from the rest. Paidoffers virtually jumped out at me, a new online site, very plausible with much possibilities. I therefore decided to take a closer look.
As the festive season comes to an end, we are either sighing with relief, thankful that it all went so well, or swearing never again. But most of us would have enjoyed a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and are now hoping 2013 will bring some well needed prosperity
In view of our ever worsening economy, many of us have quite sensibly made a point of holding back on some of the little extras we traditionally enjoyed during the holidays. But never-the-less, I'm sure a lot of us still managed to spend more money than we originally planned.
And now seem to be a good time to find realistic ways to earn some money to help us turn our bank balance out of the red and back to black, not an easy trick to perform, but there are ways.
As those of us who are familiar with the way the internet works know, there are many ways to make money on line, maybe not the millions some people would have us believe, but for the honest folks, who are prepared to do the work and persevere, there are ways to earn online.
However, we are also aware of the pitfalls. There are so many money making schemes on the internet it is hard to know where to start and how to avoid the sites that are looking to separate us from our hard earned cash by hook or by crook.
The best way to avoid getting scammed is by being vigilant, and by using your common sense. If it looks too good to be true it probably is, I've always advised, do your own research and if you have doubts, walk away. I have written many hubs on the subject of making money on and off line, which many people continues to find useful, this review is on a new site which promises much and appears to be a genuine way to make some money, but is Paidoffer as good close up as it first seems?
Make Money With Paidoffers
Paidoffers make money by earning sales commission from companies, they do this by referring their members to various companies, members who join Paidoffers take part in an offer through their site.
Paidoffer then passes a share of the commission on to their members in the form of cash, they give each member a bonus of £50 on the completion of their first offer.
After signing up to join the site, members are given a list of 26 offers to take them to a total of between £300 and £1000. Once the last offer is completed and all 26 offers are validated by the advertisers, members will be able to get their money.
The offers can be anything from signing up to newsletter, taking out a free trial or clicking a link, if you do not wish to take a particular offer you may select an alternative, if there are no current alternatives, apparently, the offers are regularly updated and we are told that it is worth checking back later to see if there are new offers that are more suited.
Each offer pays a cash reward which will be credited to the member's account. Having gone through all 26 offers and all validations completed, members would have earned the money which they can choose to have paid either through BACS or in Amazon Gift Vouchers.
For those choosing to be paid with Amazon Gift Vouchers, £10 bonus will be added to all payments. In addition, members are able to earn another £10 when they refer a friend and can earn even more through special offers or via email, this is additional revenue to what has already been earned from Paidoffers
This all sounds great and a simple way to earn some cash. However, as I looked closer, there was a distinct whiff. Ding ding! I could not verify my email, ding! Although the service is supposed to be free, I was required to pay first £1 then more.
I decided to pass on some of the offers, but I found that there were no more alternative and here is where I backed off and began to unsubscribe for the offers I had accumulated. by this time my earnings total was in excess of £200. Several people who have joined this site have doubts about the claims made.
Problems With Paidoffers
Although I was given an email address, I found it very difficult to validate the account
Even when some people have completed 26 offers validations are few, and a long time coming, and there will be no payment until there are 26 validations
Although this is supposed to be free, you are asked to pay after a few offers
When I chose not to accept two offers, one singing bingo, the other talk talk, there were no alternatives, this seem to be a common experience
This site seems to require a lot of personal information
members reported getting large amounts of spam email
No reply to complaints
The £50 bonus offer for completing the first offer cannot be redeemed until all 26 offers are completed and validated.
Although this site appears to be based in the UK there are apparently, other countries involved. If you are thinking of joining Paidoffers, do the research, however, since this site is fairly new an online reputation has not yet fully established, there may well be teething problems, giving Paidoffers the benefit of the doubt, but from me it's a big resounding thumbs down.
