==> Tired of scams? Check out 12 Legitimate Ways To Make Money Online


==> Skip to my #1 Recommended Way to Make Money Online.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve noticed a new “make money online” program,, being promoted all over Facebook, so I decided to check out the program for myself and share my own review.

My goal was to find out whether this new site was a total scam or a genuine online opportunity.

I couldn’t find many reviews online, so I wanted to share my own experience, to help others who may be interested in joining.

What is review is a website that lets you earn money online by completing small tasks. You can earn anything from $0.50 to $100 for these tasks. It’s completely free to join, and your account is instantly credited with $10 for signing up and $0.50 for logging into your account.

However, earning money with is not as easy as it seems.

Tired Of Scams?! Discover My #1 Way To Make Money Online

How Can You Make Money Online With payment

There are a few ways to earn with this website. You can:

1 – Download apps, Complete Surveys and Small Tasks/Offers–  Earn $2-$100

2 – Refer Friends – Earn $1 per valid referral

All you need to do here is refer other members and get them to sign up, using your referral link. The site is available for any country in the world, but referral earnings can differ depending on which country your referral is from.

Most countries will give you $1 referral earnings, however, there are some countries that only award you with $0.50 per referral.

3 – Promote Banners on Facebook Groups – Earn $0.5 per valid post facebook banner

With this method, all you need to do is promote the Paytime banners on Facebook. They have a quick guide which shares with you how to join Facebook groups and promote the banners on there.

I noticed that all of the banners have the same “payment proof” image on them, which explains why this was the only “payment proof” I’ve seen online for this website.

Once you’ve shared your post, you then need to take a screenshot and upload it to in order to receive payment.

4 – Promote Movies and TV Shows – Earn $15 per sign up

To earn with this method, you need to promote your favourite movies/tv shows. Within the Paytime platform you can type in the name of the movie/tv show you want to promote, then will provide you with a link to the movie to share. You can promote on social media and forums etc.

You earn $15 when someone signs up for the movie service through your link, but they can’t watch the movie/show unless they sign up.

However, I noticed that whoever signs up through your link will at some point need to enter in card details to access the movie/tv show. I personally wouldn’t do this myself, and I’m sure a lot of people will be sceptical about entering card information when the service is supposed to be free. As a result, it may be difficult to earn with this method. Payment Proof

You’re expected to receive payment on the 30th of each month, and the minimum payment threshold is dependant on the withdrawal method you use.

Minimum Thresholds:

  • Paypal – $50
  • Payoneer – $100
  • Skrill – $100
  • Wire Transfer – $500

At the time of writing this review, I have not seen a single payment proof from users of this program. There has been one circulating on Facebook by different people, but as mentioned before, it’s the “payment proof” shown in the promotional banners.

  • High payment threshold – The minimum threshold is $50 – $500 depending on which withdrawal method you use.
  • No evidence of payment proof – I haven’t come across any member that has actually successfully cashed out with It’s still early days for the site, so I’ll be keeping an eye out to see if things change over the next few weeks/months. (Update: This site does NOT pay!)
  • Lack of customer support – A lot of users have reported lack of customer support. And there are no social media accounts either, to get additional support from. In addition, it is not clear at all who the owner of this site is.
  • Lots of negative user reviews – If you take a look at user reviews on forum sites such as, you’ll see straight away that is not paying its users. With this many negative reviews, it’s clear this site is not a legitimate opportunity for making money online.
  • Very similar to 1DollarTask “scam” site – 1DollarTask is a website which claims to help you earn money online. But this website and are very similar. They both offer:
    • $10 sign-up bonus
    • $0.50 per social media post
    • $1 per referral
    • The same login design/layout
    • Even the favicon logo is the same and 1dollartasks

Although this could just be coincidence, I just found it really interesting how similar both programs were, and this flagged up alarms bells for me.

Is a Scam?

Based on the information I have gathered about this site, such as multiple negative user reviews, no support from the website owner(s), comparisons to other “scam” sites and no real proof of payment available, I believe this site has all the signs of a scam.

Therefore, I do not trust the website or recommend it to anyone looking for legitimate ways to make money online from home.

Final Thoughts

Hopefully I’ve been able to give you a well balanced review. Based on what I’ve seen so far, I do not feel this program will pay its users. I believe this site will disappoint a lot of people who have spent their time earning money through the program.

So, do I recommend NO! Personally, I don’t feel it is the best way to make money online. However, it is still new, so if there are any changes then I will update this review according. (Update: It is clear now that this site does NOT pay.)

Instead, why not try out some of my favourite/top sites to make money online completing surveys, offers and tasks:

I think its not a scam and you should check this out. you will find that its very useful to earn extra money to pay for subscription.

    Stephanie - October 29, 2019

    Hi, thanks for joining the discussion, however, it’s been proven by the comments and multiple online users that is a scam.

    I noticed that you have a review of another app called Paytime on your website, which is a different website/app to the one I reviewed here.

    It’s possible that the Paytime app you have reviewed on your website is legit, but is 100% a scam.

    Hi Gifty, thank you for commenting. I agree, it looks like a promising site on the surface, it’s a shame that the whole thing is a lie.

Maggi - December 10, 2017

Hi Stephanie,

Thanks for the detailed review. It sure will help a lot of people. Great post detailing every aspect of Paytime. Looking forward to hearing more from you.

    Stephanie - December 27, 2017

    Hi Maggi, thanks so much for commenting, and for sharing your thoughts. All the best! 🙂

myraf - December 6, 2017 is a positively 100% big scam
i joined it in the ending of September and was able to reach 100$ in October, so they said i will get my payment on 30th of November, i kept on working while waiting for the payment and now we are in December, i never receive the payment and they kept on compiling the screen money for me in my accounts associated with them.
You can download and see the screenshot of the screen money they accumulate for me.
So i will advice every body to run away from them before they suck your blood like how they did to me.

    Stephanie - December 10, 2017

    Hi Myraf, I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t receive your payment either. Thank you for taking the time to share your own experience with though. I’m sure your experience will help encourage others to stay away from this site.

    All the best!

    Natalie - January 2, 2018

    Same thing for me. I promoted a lot and want to go and delete them all. All the payment proofs had changed and I thought “finally they updated the site” but should of known it was too good to be true. Its funny, it showed I was supposed to have a payment Dec 31st and received nothing. Now it reflects my January payment. They are trying hard to look legit but not once have I ever had anyone respond to any of my emails.

      Stephanie - January 3, 2018

      Hi Natalie, I’m very sorry to hear that you also didn’t get paid from It’s so bad that “companies” like this scam innocent users who are just trying to make some extra money online. I really hope any one else thinking of joining is able to take a look online for reviews like this, before wasting their time with the site.

Ami Raquel - December 4, 2017

Hi, Stephanie. looks very legit am sure it’s going to suck in and waste a lot of peoples precious time and energy. Nowadays, the number of legit programs is few and far between. Scams are popping up all over and, sadly, newbies are the unsuspecting culprits. Thank you for this review. I know it will help someone out there.

    Stephanie - December 10, 2017

    Hi Ami. I agree, on the surface looks like a legit program, but as you go further into it, it’s actually the complete opposite.

    Thanks for commenting!

Anne adonis - December 3, 2017

Hi I just joined but feel very guilty that I posted for the past two weeks to people. I’m really going to stop misleading people it is unethical. I am going to share your research now in public.

    Stephanie - December 3, 2017

    Hi Anne, thank you for commenting. You don’t need to feel guilty, sometimes it’s difficult to tell when something is a scam or not, especially when you’re new to the “make money online” space. At least now you know the what the program is like and what types of things to look out for in future programs. If you’re still looking for legit ways to make money online, check out this blog post. Hope that helps.

    All the best!

Vince - December 2, 2017

Thanks Steph for this review. I ‘ve been looking into Paytime but was a bit sus on how legit it was.
I appreciate your honest feedback and great site resource that help my online ventures

    Stephanie - December 3, 2017

    Hi Vince, thanks for commenting. You were right to be suspicious of Paytime. Unfortunately, it is not a legit site, and many users have complained of not receiving payment. Hopefully you find other methods which are suitable for you, on the blog. All the best!

Maurice Jackson - December 2, 2017

This site you reviewed. Should be make pennies per hour. This makes minimum wage look good.

aud kris cruz - December 1, 2017

This is SCAM. It was our scheduled payout yesterday. We are residing in the Philippines and I even encouraged my colleagues at work to try it since there isn’t anything we could lose if we try. We were able to meet and even exceed the requirement to expedite our payments where in if you reached $500 above for doing tasks you will be paid in just 7 days through paypal. My boss whom I encouraged to try the online task even emailed them to request for the deposit and they responded by telling us that since it is our first payout we have been scheduled already to receive the money in 30 days but we do not have to worry because it will be requested on our next payout if in case we reached the quota again. At first we thought this was legit because there isn’t any bad review online. It is just recently that we tried to check on the reviews again and we found several blogs where 1dollartask was mentioned and on how these two websites are very similar. I’ve tried signing up to 1dollartask to see it myself if those reviews were true. And to my surprise, THERE IT IS. EVERYTHING IS THE SAME. It is definitely a scam!

    Stephanie - December 2, 2017

    Hi Aud, thank you for sharing your experience, and I’m sorry to hear you, and your colleagues, didn’t receive a payout for your efforts. It’s such a shame programs like this are out there scamming innocent people.

Olfa - November 30, 2017

Hi Stephavnie
i’m glad i could read your reviews , i was a bit lost looking for all kinds of sites and wondering at the same time whether it’s a scam or not. Thanks you very much to share your experience with readers , it’s very useful for us,
mostly for those who are not yet accustomed to work online and who live also far and even very far. So for me living in tunisia through my reading of your reviews i know now that i must choose only sites available for all countries.
Among those you have cited i can give a try to OFFERNATION and CLIXSENSE sites.
Have you ever heard of MOGROB surveys site?. I have registered 3 days ago , but no survveys available till now.

ok so i’m sure that now you noticed that i’m looking for a small job that won’t take so much of my time and could allow me to earn extra money and be a nice experience for me. It’s always positive to be curious and ask and learn and make new acquaintances . SO, Stephanie, i like very much your blog the way you explain and give tips to make things more obvious to others.
looking forward to hear from you


    Stephanie - December 2, 2017

    Hi Olfa, thank you for commenting and I really appreciate your feedback on my blog.

    I’m not familiar with MOGROB, but I will definitely look into it and see what it’s like.

    Since you’re looking for small online jobs, then you may want to stick to sites that pay you for taking surveys, completing offers, testing websites etc, and mobile apps. I have an in-depth blog post which shares 12 legitimate ways to make money online. I mention a quite a few sites which offer ways to get paid for small tasks. I think you’ll find some sites there, which will definitely fit your income needs.

    I hope that helps.

    Let me know if you have any more questions.

    All the best!

Marcus Mendonca - November 30, 2017

Hey Stephanie, thanks for the insights. I heard about making money answering surveys and trying out beta apps so as I was searching for info I came across your site. At first, I really liked what I saw about Paytime but now I’m not too sure anymore. I will check your recommendations though. Thanks for doing the research in advance. I’m subscribing to your newsletter too.

    Stephanie - December 2, 2017

    Hi Marcus, thank you very much for commenting, and glad to hear you’ve subscribed too! 🙂

    You’re right to be unsure about Unfortunately, it is not a legitimate site, and it’s not a good option if you’re looking for real ways to make money online.

    You should definitely have much better results with my recommendations, and I look forward to hearing how you get on with those sites.

    All the best!

michel duhamel - November 30, 2017

Great review, I never heard of the program but to a small degree it does remind me of a discredited version of Swagbucks. I also think having a very high threshold for payments is a very shady way to do business. From my experience, they most likely have that in place because people will drop out before they can cash out, saving the company lots of money in the end.
Thanks again for the review I think I’ll heed your advice and sit this one out.


    Stephanie - December 2, 2017

    Hi Mike, thanks for commenting.

    It is slightly similar to Swagbucks, in that you “earn money” for completing small tasks. However, doesn’t pay at all, whereas Swagbucks is 100% genuine.

    From what I’ve read, it appears that the main goal of this site and others like it, is to get people to complete their affiliate offers, so the only ones really making money are the site owners, and the innocent members are left with nothing but wasted time.

    So, yea, like you said, the best thing to do is to “sit this one out”.

    If you’re looking for similar sites, that actually pay, you can take a look at my recommendations above.

    All the best!

Rahul Taneja - November 28, 2017

Hello Stephanie,
Thanks for such a detailed review. Feel, it looks like another scam sort of site, which arrives on the scene and dies in few months.

    Stephanie - November 28, 2017

    Hi Rahul, thanks for commenting, and appreciate the feedback. I agree, it gives the impression of a scam, and I can’t imagine it’ll last very long. I’ll also be keeping an eye on how things progress over the next few weeks and months.
