Clixsense Description

Clixsense is a business opportunity that brings together advertisers and consumers. The service is a ‘get paid to browse’ or ‘pay to surf’ program that pays users to click on advertisements run by sponsors. Users can earn anywhere from 1 cent to $5 for viewing an ad. They also offer affordable advertising packages if you have a product or service you are interested in promoting.

Clixsense Detailed Overview

Whenever I hear about a pay to surf program, my defenses are put up immediately. These programs were all the rage many years ago but were clouded with bad user experiences. Many of the companies never paid out the money owed to users or either went bust, taking all the profits with them. It is very hard to find a legitimate pay to surf program but there’s been some interest in Clixsense.

After doing some research, I found that the company has been around for 2 years and has received some decent reviews from users. I signed up to find to find out what it was all about. As soon as you sign up, you can start browsing ads. There’s also a way to view your click history and details so you are not cheated out of any earnings.

You will get paid anywhere from 1 cent to $5 for viewing an advertisement. You have to look at the ad for 30 seconds before you can move on to the next one. Most of the ads only pay out 1-2 cents and it is very rare for you to come across one that pays you more than a dollar. The good thing about their program is that the minimum payout is $10 and they pay monthly by check, making it easy to get paid.

You only get a certain amount of ads as a free member. If you want to get more ads, you can upgrade for $10 for the whole year. This will give you enough ads to keep you busy. A little trick I found to get more ads is to check off more interests when you set up your account. That way you will be presented with more offers.

One thing I like about Clixsense is their affiliate program. For every person you refer to their service, you will earn 10% of your referral’s earnings. This can add up quick if you start referring other people to Clixsense and they start to get involved with the program.

From what I see, you will have to use Clixsense every single day for at least a month if you want to reach the $10 payout. I think anything more than that is too time consuming and your time can be better spent at building a solid Internet business.

For the advertising side, some advertisers reported a small return on investment from offering business related offers. The advertising rates are incredibly cheap so it seems like it would be worth your while running ads on Clixsense and testing out some biz op offers.

Clixsense Reputation

In final, Clixsense is a great little program that can help you make a few bucks if you have some spare time. They are reliable and pay out to their users but it is not a great business opportunity because it’s hard to make any significant amount of money for the time you put in. If you have a free hour a day and want a couple of extra bucks every month, then I recommend this program.

This site pays

This was one of the first paid to Click sites which I joined. There were 7-8 advertisements per day available to click. Every single advertisement was worth 1 cent (As I was a free member). It took me around 4 months to reach the minimum payout of 10$. After that, I requested to make cash out. I received the payment on time.

I did not like the fact that they do not use PayPal as a payment processor. Also, the customer support requires improvement. Once, after clicking an advertisement, no page was loading but only a . GIF image was shown. I contacted with the customer support. They never replied to my mail. The problem was solved automatically after 4 days. A site can have technical problems but they should also let users know about that. Anyway, the earnings were too slow. So, after receiving the first payment, I did not use this site anymore.

It's a P(aid) T(o) C(lick) Site. What can you expect? That aside...

... With clixsense you can rest assured that the shiny brown coin you earned for 30 seconds of your life is yours, and yours to spend once you reach payout. Since you're reading this review I'll leave out how this is in no way worth your time, in my opinion, and focus on the website.

Clixsense is one of -the- best PTC websites out there as it couldn't be trusted any better. You can see how much has been earned on their homepage, however I really doubt that half of the members of that figure reached payout. Of course there is an upgrade feature, you can easily earn back what you spent.

Overall, if you think less than the cost of a postage stamp is worth it, you're not really going to find a better paid to click website.

Worth The Effort IF...

You spend all day in front of the computer with nothing better to do than click ads. It pays too low to be even worth considering as a good income source, as with all other PTC sites out there (unless you have tons of referrals, that is). I've tried Clixsense in the early days of my earning online ventures, and like all of the PTCs I've signed up on back then, stopped doing them after a month or so. I've reached payout once, and yes, they are legit because they pay they members, but seriously, there are higher paying paid-to sites out there that wouldn't bore you out of your mind.

Not the easiest to use but you can get some money

The only big problem might be that the only way you get money from them is the Check which they charge an additional $3 to send to you. Other than that it is one of the best PTCs out there.

Grade C for Clixsense

The review on Clixsense is misleading. For one, it's not a business opportunity but a paid to click site plain and simple. They also do not pay 10% of your referral's earnings, they pay you when the referral advertises. Unlike most ptc sites which pay a percentage for downline earnings, Clixsense pays when the referral joins and when they upgrade; nothing more. My first year, I upgraded to premium membership and was excited to get the 350+ ads immediately. However, weeks later the ads trickled back down to the usual 5-7 ads per day. Another drawback to the site is they don't use online services such as Paypal and Alertpay. You get paid with a check AND most important, they charge a small check fee of three dollars. I have been a member of Clixsense for two years now and plan on staying with them. Why you may ask? Clixsense is reliable and pay their members, period. They run their business the old fashioned way so perhaps they will be in business for many years to come. Small pocket change, reliable, nothing fancy but Clixsense earns a grade of C+ from me.

Clixsense: The only Ptc I have stayed with

I joined many Ptc sites during the past several years, but I usually give up and stop clicking. Clixsense is the only Ptc I have stayed with because they have many ads to click on. I check several times a day and new ads are continuously added.

Some days I typically earn 15 to 20 cents. Although this does not sound like much, over time it adds up to about $5 or $10 a month. Generally, I am able to reach payout in about 2 months.

It is nice to know I can have a little spending change, just when I need a little extra gas money, snack, or even if I am few dollars short on a bill. Every little bit helps out.

The only downside to Clixsense is the $3 processing fee, which actually brings the check payment down to $7 instead of receiving the whole $10. However, I still appreciate whatever extra money I am able to earn on the Internet.

Also Clixsense is an educational experience because I learn about different business opportunities when I read the ads I click on. This is information I would look up on the Internet for free, so if Clixsense is paying me to read an ad, this is even better.

Never Reached Payout

I tried clixsense about a year ago but was never able to reach payout. Clixsense did provide more ads to click then other ptc sites, but I was still making only about ten cents a day which is not at all worth it. They also had a 10 dollar payout which was very hard to reach. I also didn't like their referral program. For most other ptc sites you get at least half of the money your referrals make, but for clixsense you make money when your referrals upgrade their account. Clixsense is a legitimate site but it is difficult to reach payout and in my opinion not worth the time.

Slow site but really pay!

I am an active member of this site and I like this site because you can get $.01 for each advertisement you viewed that is better than other sites I visited.

I get 3 or more advertisements a day. It is slow to reached the minimum Payout which is $10 but at least you get a free money out of your free time just to view the advertisement for 30 seconds. I stay active to this site because of the positive review I read before.

It is worth giving it a try!

I joined Clixsense about 4 months ago. I have been paid once from this site so it definitely is not a scam. All you do on this site is click on the ads available and get paid anywhere from $.01 on up. It doesn't seem like a lot of money but it sure does add up.

Unlike other websites which pay only $0.01 per ad or less, Clixsense has a minimum price of $0.01 per ad and the maximum that I have clicked yet is of $0.50. Also for every referral that signs up you get $.10. Also, if the person you refer upgrades to a premium membership then you get $2 as affiliate commission.

You can also purchase upgrades for your account where you can make even more. It costs $10 to be an upgraded member, and once you do so there are more than 525 ads only for premium members. You get more ads daily as compared to free members and you make more money. I think investing $10 into this website would be a good decision as it could pay off.

The only thing I do not like about this site is the fact that they don't use an online payment processor. They pay you directly by check which does have a low minimum of $10.

So all around if you are into the PTC sites this is definitely one worth joining!

Clixsense good PTC

Clixsense is one of the few PTC's that are worth joining in my opinion. It is a good and reputable site. I upgraded last year for ten dollars and reached payout (which is also ten dollars) three times within the year. One of the things I don't like about the site now, is that the 525 ads you get when you upgrade are not available all at one time. The rate of payout is slightly slowed down. All in all though, I like this site and it is one of the few PTC's I would join. They do pay any time your account reaches 10 dollars.

Needs Improvement!

Clixsense is probably one of the most legit and trusted PTC sites there is. I joined this site over a year ago. I was only active for one month because I had a full time job at that time. When I logged back in, unfortunately my account was terminated due to inactivity. I'm just a little upset because if my account was already closed why would they still spam my emails about updates and stats. I thought of joining again but I'm a bit skeptical because of their way of payout. I wish they have PayPal so it would be more easier and safer.

Good PTC site

I just joined Clixsense within the last couple of months. The one thing I notice about that site is that there isn't very many ads to click in a day. I check the site several times throughout the day and I'm lucky if I have 5 ads to click each day. So it's a very slow earning site. I will say though that I always feel comfortable clicking links on their site though. I've never gotten any viruses from this paid to click site like I have from others. If you're patient and like PTC sites, then this is a reliable site. If you're looking to earn the big bucks, then this may not be the site for you.

Been around awhile and easy to use!

I upgraded to premium member for $10 for one year. I immediately got over 500 chances to click. At 1 cent per click it's not going to make you rich. They have a section where you can invite friends to join by entering their E-mail address to send them an invite. I saw the invite e-mail and think it can be done better. Been using a little less than a month and more than half way to pay out($10). You earn 10% off referrals and have a chance to earn extra $ using the Click Grid. I would recommend getting as many referrals as possible.

Legitimate but you won't get much from it

I've been clicking for clixsense for over 2 months now and all I have is $0.33 CENTS! They are legitimate all right but they don't give a lot of ads to click on, sometimes there are no ads at all. Five ads a day would be nice. One more thing that I don't like about clixsense is that the payment method is only thru check. You will have to wait weeks before receiving the payout of only $10, and on top of that there are bank charges to think about. They really should think of incorporating paypal as one of the payment methods.

Clixsense... OK I guess

I belonged to Clixsense couple years ago. Took me almost a year before I reached payout. I was doing it all by myself, no referrals, I clicked everyday. Checking in a couple times a day when bored!

Definitely pays... but only if you want to stay in front of the screen everyday. This isn't one I would re-join.

I use it just to advertise my links

This is one of the first sites I joined last year.

I am still a standard member there because I don't like the payment method by checks.

There are not a lot of ads for standard members to click but the most important for me is that I have good results when I advertise my sites there.

I have made some referrals and so I keep on clicking them and convert my balance to ad credits to use them for advertising.

I think it is worth to spend time there.

Struggling my way to payout

I have been a member of this PTC for around a month. But I haven't been regular in clicking and I don't have referrals too. So I am just struggling these days to reach my payout on this site. I have heard a lot of good things about this site that they really pay, so I am just hoping that they continue to do the good work. Earning more than 1 cent for every click is far better than what other such PTC sites offer.

But the only disadvantage I find in this site is their payment mode. Receiving a cheque and getting it cleared is a cumbersome process for international members.

It's legitimate and worth it.

I love Clixsense. I've been a member since shortly after they opened business. As a free member you really don't get many ads but with the very low cost of $10 per year to be upgraded you do get plenty of ads to click daily. Most members make that $10 back within the first month even without referrals.

I like the design of the site it's easy to use and with the affiliate program, the clixgrid and other options there are for earning if you were to dedicate some time to this one it could easily bring in a nice chunk of change. Naturally as with all ptc's you won't get rich but Clixsense is legitimate, they pay by check, and customer service has always been great!

I myself prefer a stable legitimate ptc over these new fly by night ones any day.

One of the best PTC sites out there.

I love this site, and use it several times a day. Not only do I make a pretty good amount with the PTC side of the site, but I am also getting great results from their advertising.

My favorite place to advertise on the site is called the ClixGrid. It's a really cool minigame feature that lets you click on a grid. When you click, it opens advertisers pages, and if you're lucky, you can win random amounts of cash from a penny to Five Bucks! I've won ten cents twice, and fifty cents once clicking the clixgrid.

You only get 20 clix a day on the clixgrid if you're a free member, but you get 50 if you pay the ten bucks a year for premium.

They're one of the few honest PTC sites out there, and they always pay on time.

Clixsense doesn't make any sense!

This is definitely not for international members.

First of all, the number of advertisements available for viewing will be depending on your countries or regions. As an international member, there is only 1 advertisement for me daily, which will take me forever to reach the payout at USD $10!

Next, the rates also differ depending on your countries or regions. They claimed that the rates are between USD 0.01 to USD $5 for each advertisement viewing, but for international members, it is fixed at USD 0.01 per advertisement viewed.

Finally, with the above mentioned, you will only make the first payout after more than 2 years of joining with consistent daily advertisement viewing. That's not all, since they only pay you by cheque, you will be charged a fee when you deposit it into your local bank.

At least they Pay...

Well, to start with - they do PAY their users. So that's a big plus as most of these PTCs/Surf programs are scams. But after that, ClixSense does not have anything too special to offer unless you have loads of referrals because, without them, you'd hardly earn 10 bucks for about 45 days of clicking. That is NOT good money, even for the just clicking. Although ClixSense DOES pay more than some PTCs, it has way less ads than them.

And lastly, I just don't like their method of payment. It's just so hard to go to the bank every time you receive a measly $10. And it's harder still for International Users, as non-US banks charge a fee!
