How to Manage PTC Site Referrals

Once you’ve gained your referrals through the numerous ways I’ve mentioned on my guide on how to get referrals, let me help you manage them properly. It’s important that you learn how to manage your referrals as they’re your means of getting all your investments back and for you to earn more.

Before anything else, you have to remember that your referrals are ACTUAL HUMAN BEINGS who are like you – they also have their own lives. Some of them may not be as active as you want them to be but you have to take into consideration that they have to live their lives. I’ll get back to this topic later on.

Now, let me give you some tips on how to manage and maximize your earnings from your referrals:

Upgrade Your Account As Soon As You Can
Upgrading your account pays for itself by increasing the amount of money you get from your referrals. Most PTC sites pay you 100% referral commission when you upgrade. So, this will help you reach the minimum payout faster.

There are 2 ways that you can upgrade your account but not all PTC sites offer both. Make sure you only upgrade your account at reliable or trusted PTC sites to ensure you get your money’s worth. I suggest you wait ’til you get paid about 3-5 times before you upgrade. But, for sites like Neobux, I strongly suggest you upgrade as soon as you can.

Upgrade your account through your Paypal or Alertpay account.
If you already have enough balance on your Paypal or Alertpay account, then, you can use it to pay for your upgrade or premium membership. You also have to note that some PTC sites offer discounts to members who pay through Paypal or Alertpay instead of their balance.

Upgrade your account through your balance.
If you don’t want to shell out any money from your Paypal or Alertpay account, then, you can choose to pay through your current balance. Again, some PTC sites have higher prices for those who choose this method.

For me, though, I strongly recommend you pay through your Paypal or Alertpay account. Why? Because this will also help the PTC site make money to keep the site on longer. How come? Well, if they don’t have money to send payments to their members, they’ll close the site soon enough. Trust me. But, then, again, make sure you only upgrade or purchase anything from RELIABLE PTC sites like the ones I recommend here.

Click Everyday, As Much As Possible
I know, this can be hard for some people. I can’t even click everyday myself. And that’s okay. But as much as possible, click everyday as your clicks or how often you click will directly affect your earnings from your referrals. Most PTC sites have a very strict policy about referral commission. For instance, if you don’t click today, you won’t get any referral commission tomorrow. So, if you have LOTS of referrals, make sure you click everyday or have someone who you trust to click for you but make sure they don’t have their own account with your PTC sites.

Do Not Purchase Referrals – Just Rent Them
Again, do not purchase or buy referrals. Just rent them. This is the best way for you to manage your referrals. If you have a very active or a referral you want to keep, you can simply extend your rental for that member. You won’t have to worry about getting stuck with the same inactive referrals and you also maximize your profits.

Recycle Inactive Referrals
Once you’ve rented referrals from your PTC sites, make sure you check their activity or click history. This way, you’ll know which ones need to go or who you should keep. Now, let me remind you that your referrals have their own lives to live. So, take that into consideration before you recycle away.

Let me share with you what I do. I give my referrals 3-4 days of inactivity. On the 3rd or 4th day, I’ll recycle them. Sometimes, especially when they’re almost close to the end of the rental period, I recycle them after 2-3 days of inactivity. But, most of the time, I just leave them on my rented referral list because it won’t be practical to recycle them anymore, especially when they’ve got less than 10 days left. If you’re a Standard or Free member, I suggest stop recycling when there are only 10 days left.

Some PTC sites also have this feature wherein you can send messages to your referrals, rented and direct. Most of the time, if you send them a message, they’ll receive a notification to their email so they’ll get your message for sure. This is one way to remind them to click. Make sure you ask nicely okay? They’re not your employees. They’re just like you. At the end of the day, everyone is someone else’s referral.

Delete Inactive Direct Referrals

Aside from recycling referrals, you can also manage your direct referrals (those who clicked your referral links and/or joined the site under your name), especially when there’s a set limit that you can have depending on your membership. However, you have to note that once you delete them, they’re gone forever and they’ll be added to the pool of members up for rental. So, make sure you only delete those who have been inactive for the longest time.

Another thing to note is that, like what I mentioned earlier, most PTC sites have a limit for the number of direct referrals that you can have, depending on your membership. For instance, with Neobux, Standard members are only given a limit of 30 direct referrals. If you see that you’re almost at that number of direct referrals, delete those that are inactive for the longest time to give room to new referrals. And, this direct referral limit is also one reason you should upgrade your membership with reliable/trusted PTC sites, especially when you’re getting a lot of direct referrals.


Those are just a few of the things that you have to take note when managing your direct and rented referrals so you can maximize your earnings from them. I hope these tips would be helpful to you.

    Hi! Great site!
    I’m new to PTC. Is recycling the same as replacement of rented referrals?

      Yes, recycling is replacing of inactive or poor-performing rented referrals. :)
