ClixSense is a free and legit PTR that has been around for years. With many ways to earn, it's easy to reach payout each month. Earn even more with referral incentives. Check out my review.
I know, I know... Paid to clicks get a really bad rap. A couple cents here and a couple cents there. Most people feel it's a waste of time. However, there are a few good programs out there that are not scams, pay on time, and send offers worth more than just a fraction of a cent.
Basic Information and Background
Clixsense is a free program that has been around for about five years. I have been a member for at least three years. Have I gotten rich off the program? I'm afraid not! It does, however, offer some spending change each month. If I promoted it more I could earn much more, but I don't want to spend too much time trying to get referrals. You can earn on your own without referrals in this program and reach the minimum payout every month or two if you click only a few times each week.
This program is available for anyone in the world; it's an international program. For more information or to join, check out my Favorite PTRs. (*Note: this is NOT a referral link.)
There are always tons of ads each week on this site. I've joined some PTRs that never get any business, and even if they pay 3 or 4 cents per click, the money just never adds up because there are so few ads. Not with ClixSense. They have, I would estimate, at least 50 ads daily. The ads pay a range of a fraction of a cent to 2 cents. The lower paying ads only have a timer of 3 seconds, though, so you don't have to wait very long to get credit for viewing a low paying ad. Most of the ads are worth 1 cent and have a 30 second timer.
Upgrades and Referrals
ClixSense has an attractive referral program several layers deep, so you can earn not only for your direct referrals, but from their referrals as well. If you are an upgraded, or premium, member, you can earn up to $2 for each referral that upgrades and can earn 8 levels deep. As a standard member you will only earn from direct, or first level, referrals. They have one of the best upgrade packages in the industry, with an annual membership costing only $14.95, which is only about $1 per month.
As a premium member you can view more ads, get paid a higher rate per ad, and earn referral incentives. However, even without upgrading your account, as stated earlier, you can still reach payout each month if you click a few times each week. The money adds up fairly quickly with this program since they always run so many ads.
Once you reach $10 you can receive payout by any of the following options: paper check through the mail, or through PayPal, AlertPay, or Liberty Reserve. With paper checks through the mail, the minimum is $10 if you live in Canada, United States, or Mexico. Paper checks via postal mail are also available internationally, but the payout is at $100 for other countries. International members can reach the $10 payout and be paid by other methods, however, so there are many options for payout internationally.
Another option, if you'd like, is to use your earnings to buy advertising on their site. You can purchase your own ads and target them to whichever geographic area and demographic you'd like.
Other Incentives ClixSense Offers
ClixSense also has a game you can play called ClixGrid. As a free member you get 25 chances to win a prize of up to $5 daily. Upgraded members get 50 chances each day to win. I have never personally won anything while playing ClixGrid.
According to their site, you can also play games. "These more than 1000 games are for your enjoyment only. You will not get paid for playing them. However we may run gaming contests from time to time. Have fun!" I have not tried any of these so I cannot give more information than what is provided at the site.
ClixSense has a survey site as well, called Clixsense Research. Unlike most paid survey sites, if you don't qualify to complete a survey, you're still often rewarded with a minimum of 10 cents just for trying. I have completed surveys ranging with payouts from 50 cents to $5, so the rates of the surveys vary. There are usually at least a couple surveys to do daily, and each survey enters you into their daily, weekly, and monthly drawings for cash and prizes.
