PapaiMark - The best paying ptc sites
Basic rules to avoid scam:
There are some procedures to avoid being scammed at will.
1- PTC is to earn money, not to spend or invest. If you want to invest, go to a bank. There is no reason to someone ask you money to work for him. Upgrade only makes profit to the site, never to the member, unless the site owner is an idiot.
Every PTC will, sooner or later become a scam. The point is to know how long it will take.
3- There is no "trusted" site or administrator, except for a while. Trusted while it is paying.
1- First, take a look at whois information. There you will see the name, e-mail and other information about the administrator. A ptc that uses
PrivacyProtect.org or somehow hides the whois infos, cannot be trusted. Take the name and do a search in forums for a good or bad reference. To find whois
info, go to http://whois.domaintools.com and paste the name of the site. Using Firefox, just download the FLAGFOX plug in. Free. Just click on the icon and all info is shown.
Avoid sites from poor or cheating countries like China, Pakistan, Indonesia, Philipines, Vietnam, Russia and oriental countries in general.
2- Never trust a site that runs under a free domain or a sub domain or free host. No money to pay host = no money to pay you. Generally they are free for one or three months, so the ptc disappears after this time and is usually run by a 13-15 aged child with a warez ptc script.
3- As less is the referral value, as more trusted the ptc is. Run away from sites that pays more than one cent per click. Generally, referral below 50% will last longer.
4- Advertising rate. A site that charges less than $10,00 per 1000 click and pays 1 cent per click will become a scam in few weeks. Obviously, the maths don´t match.
5- The site that has more than 1 self sponsored ad/day got a problem. More than two, got a great problem. History tells that these sites don´t last 6 months.
6- Always read TOS. Always. Some sites pays only upgraded, others don´t pay some countries, others have weird or tricky rules. Never submit personal info like proof of identity (except for Paypal, Payza or some well known payment processor).
7- A ptc that has a forum is better. They can manipulate/edit/delete posts and complaints. but it is useful to see if it is abandoned, if has fake proofs and to give us a general view. A forum without complaints is not trustful.
8- Do not believe in the owners´ statistics. Visit Alexa.com and other sites that shows the true number of daily visits. There are useful links in the tack board (homepage).
9- Follow the independent forums as TalkPTC.com. If the forum that you choose is owned by a PTC owner, its honesty and impartiality is compromised.
10- Any site that offers more than 1 cent per click or e-mail read is a scam for sure.
11- Use Firefox, Chrome or Opera but never use Internet explorer.
12- Search in the scam list. before joining any site. If the site is listed, there is a good reason for that.
13- "Actual values depends on site earnings." If you see this in TOS, be warned: If you be paid, it will be about 1% of your balance.
In General, this is bad:
> Whois protected, domains by proxy, where you can't see the owners details.
> Non English ptc, (from poor countries)
> Free script (or stolen or pirate),
> Free host,
> Pre launch or beta version,
> More than 1¢ per click or view and / or 50% or more from referral earnings.
> TOS different from homepage or FAQ (pirate script or laziness),
> Advertise pricing less than paying rates,
> No forum or forum too clean and happy. Members complain much more than praise.
> Self sponsored ads,
> PTCs that forces members to upgrade before the cash out (pay to be paid),
> Paying rates depending on site earnings,
> Owner of the site has scammed before in other ptcs,
> Use of buggy or unsafe scripts to run the site. (yob, gen2, home made scripts that leads to beta versions,
pre launch and fail) They usually looks like bux.to.
> Sites hosted by BuxHost. These kids are full of good intentions but empty of experience.
Normally, pays for few weeks, less than 4 months. Depends on upgrades to survive.
