This is my Step-by-Step guide on how you can earn money through Paid to Click or PTC sites. Basically, I will be showing you how to join, navigate through the different PTC sites and make money through them.
You can check my complete list of Trusted PTC sites here and select the ones you want to join or you can join all of them.
If you have any questions or clarifications, feel free to leave a comment here.
PTC Sites requirements during registration are simple. Let me show you how the registration form looks like. This screenshot is from Neobux‘ registration form:
- Alertpay /Paypal email: If you have both, I strongly recommend you enter your Paypal email address because most PTC sites pay through Paypal and it’s easier to manage your funds.
- Referrer: Please make sure my name is in there when you register – blankpixels. Thanks!
- Birth Year: Make sure you remember what birth year you entered here (in case you’re below 18 and your Paypal account is under your sibling or parent’s name.
That’s it! Most PTC sites will ask you to verify the email address so all you need to do is check your email and click on the confirmation link to verify that you own that email address.
I know, this sounds easy but I want to share some tips on how you can click for your favorite PTC sites seamlessly.
- Use the most updated Firefox browser.
I strongly recommend this because you’ll be visiting different sites and for your safety and security, use Firefox. If you choose to use a different browser, make sure you clear all the Temporary Internet Files.
I’m not trying to scare you, okay? In my experience clicking for PTC sites, I haven’t experienced getting a virus or spyware from the websites I visited, even back when I was still using Internet Explorer. I’m just giving this tip to ensure your security.
Browser Tip: Add the PTC sites to your Bookmarks for easy access. Create a folder for them so you can simply click on those bookmarks when you’re trying to access the sites. Take note, though, that most PTC sites would require you to login everytime you visit their site so make sure you’re clicking the ads WHILE you’re logged in or you won’t be credited. Also, if you took longer to respond to the site, or you’ve been idle for more than 3-5 minutes, you will be automatically logged out by most PTC sites. Just refresh the page to ensure you’re logged in.
- DO NOT login to the same PTC site with 2 different accounts on one (1) computer or IP address.
If you do, you’re risking getting your accounts banned FOR GOOD. So, don’t try to cheat.
- Open multiple PTC sites at one time to save time.
When I’ve got lots of free time, I open only 1 browser and 3 PTC sites at a time. When I’m all done clicking for any of them, I open another PTC site and this goes on and on until I’ve clicked all the ads available to me on all my PTC sites. I suggest you open the ones on the top of your list like Neobux.NOTE: DO NOT click more than 1 ad PER PTC site. Open 1 ad PER PTC site at a time or else you’ll be tagged as a bot, autoclicker or cheater.
- Here’s how my browser window looks like when I’m clicking:
(click to zoom)As you can see, I have 3 PTC sites open and I’ve already clicked on an ad on the first 2 PTC sites (TheClickers and VelvetClix). I’m on the Earnings Area of Revbux, about to click on ads through the Click Links link (that was too repetitive, I’m sorry LOL).
So, you can have multiple PTC sites open to cut the time short. When I want to finish my clicking quickly, I open ALL my PTC sites and click on 1 ad for each at a time.
Most PTC sites I featured here offer not only paying you for clicking and viewing ads or advertiser websites but they also have Paid to Sign up, Read/Paid Emails and/or Click Exchange. Below is a brief explanation of each of these. I’ll be posting a more detailed guide about them.
*Paid to Sign Up – much like an affiliate program where advertisers pay you a certain amount after you’ve signed up to their affiliate site. Most of the advertisers and PTC sites require you to submit a proof that you did sign up OR they’ll require you to be active on their affiliate site for a certain # of days before you get paid.
*Read/Paid Emails – if you enable this (check my PTC Sites for Dummies – A Newbie Guide to know how), you’ll receive advertiser paid ad emails to your registered email address OR there’ll be a listing on the site itself.
*Click Exchange – if you participate in this, you get advertising credits/points that you can use to advertise your own referral links or websites. Most PTC sites offer 5/5 ratio, meaning you get 5 visits for every 5 visits you make. This will be a continuous viewing of ads until all the available ads/websites are viewed.
Moving on with the topic of this blog post (I get carried away often with my explanations so pardon me heheh), how do you find the PAID ADS that you can click to earn money from PTC sites? Let me show you screenshots from different PTC sites. They’re almost the same for all PTC sites so just look for a link or button similar to them.
On Neobux, once logged in, simply click on the link View Advertisements on the upper right of your screen. There should be a # there encircled in red, which refers to the # of ads available to you.
Some PTC sites like VelvetClix have 2 links you can click to access the Paid Ads – Earnings Area and View Ads.
I told you, this will be much detailed. Anyway, I’m still going to show you how you click on an ad and get credits for viewing them because not all PTC sites have the same way of viewing ads. Let me show you some examples.
Reminder: You MUST only click one ad per PTC site. When you click on a link or ad, it will open a new TAB or window so make sure your Popup blocker allows your PTC sites to open popup windows. After viewing the ad, follow/answer the anti-cheater instruction or question and you can close the window afterwards. Read the next section.
- On EgyptianClicks, you’d usually see this amount of paid ads after going to the Earnings Area. However, take note that not all of the ads are for MONEY. Most of them will earn you points for viewing. What are these points for? For advertising your referral link, blog or website. Only the ones at the bottom of the list will earn you money. I usually just click on the money links since I don’t have any plans yet of advertising with them.
- On WordLinx, once you’ve clicked on the link on the Paid Ads page, it will give you another instruction (this is their anti-cheater feature) to click on the button (the yellow one). This is the same for Neobux. Once you’ve clicked on the button, the ad or website will open on a new tab or window.
- On BuxP, once you’ve clicked on some of the ads, when you refresh the Paid Ads page (just in case you forgot where you left off), the ones you’re done viewing will be crossed out.For most sites, though, the ads you’ve viewed will automatically be removed from the list once you’ve clicked on them. For the others, the links won’t be clickable anymore ’til your next visit.
- Read the AD link first before clicking on it. Some PTC sites will add a link on the Paid Ads page that looks like a regular Paid Ad link BUT when you click on it, it will alarm the Admin and your account can either be suspended, banned or your money will be wiped out. This is one way for them to detect autoclickers, cheaters or bots… or if you’re actually reading the Paid Ads link.
Funny story, I mistakenly clicked on an anti-cheater link on Bomblogic months ago. I barely get ads on their site because it’s geo-targeted so I got too excited and clicked on that link without reading it. I realized what I did immediately so I sent an email to the Bomblogic admin through their contact form. Thankfully, they replied after a day and cleared me of any violation since I don’t have any records of being a cheater. I know, that was embarassing!
Once you click on an ad and it opens on a new window, most PTC sites have their own timers that will count down the seconds ’til you can close the website and move on to the next ad. This is their way of trying to make their members read or check the advertiser’s website. Though this doesn’t happen most of the time, 1 out of 30 members do check out the website.
Reminder: Make sure that the timer is done counting down the minutes before you answer the anti-cheater question/answer (in case it already appears before the time is up) or else you might not be credited for the view.
Here’s an example of the timer you’d see on the ad window. Usually, it’s on the upper left side of the screen but it can be placed anywhere on the ad window. It’s showing that I still need to wait for 2 more seconds before the anti-cheater link is shown or before I can close the ad window.
All PTC sites have their own ant-cheater or anti-autoclicker features to prevent cheaters from abusing their site. Some of them are pretty tricky so make sure you think first before you answer of follow the anti-cheater instruction or question.
- The most common anti-cheater you’d see on PTC sites is this. Simply follow the instruction to Click on 9 on the right. Make sure you click on the # 9 in between #s 2 and 4. If you click on the wrong #, you won’t be credited.
- Here’s a similar anti-cheater feature from BuxP but this time, they’re all letters and you should click the right letter.
- Some of the PTC sites also have an anti-cheater feature where you have to answer the question first BEFORE the ad or website is viewed. Here’s an example from PPLinx. It’s a very simple question and the answer is obvious…. right? LOL
- This one, I particularly like. This is from Clicksia. It’s pretty tricky ‘coz I had to look at the images twice to see which was upside down. I swear, the first time I saw this, all the images looked like they were upside down. LOL
Once you’ve answered the anti-cheater question, usually, the advertiser’s website will reload and the PTC site’s topframe will be removed. If this happens, it’s now okay to close the window and move on to the next ad.
Some sites will immediately tell you you’ve been credited once the timer’s up. It will show a checkmark or it will say something like “Credited“, “You’ve been credited $0.01.” or simply a checkmark.
Again, make sure that the ad window confirms that you’re done with that ad before you move on to the next one.
Once you have reached the minimum amount set by the PTC site before you can withdraw, you can now transfer that money from your PTC site accounts to your Paypal or Alertpay accounts. I strongly recommend you use Paypal . If you’re not sure what the cashout minimum is for my featured PTC sites, please check out the complete list of my trusted PTC sites.
Let me show you some examples on where on the PTC site you can withdraw your money:
- On VelvetClix and other Aurora sites (TheClickers, Cash-Harvest, etc), go to your My Account page and you should see a link there for Withdraw.
Then, you would see your withdrawal options. It says you can withdraw through Alertpay (for free) or through Paypal (2% processing fee). Some people prefer Alertpay because there’s no processing fee but I still recommend Paypal because of the convenience of having my funds transferred directly to my account. But, if you want to save money, you can go ahead and select Alertpay .
If you haven’t set up your Alertpay or Paypal email address, it will ask you for it. Now, that Red circle indicates that you CANNOT withdraw yet because you’re not yet beyond the minimum amount for cashout. So, if that’s already green, you can withdraw your funds anytime.
- For Neobux, click on your username on the top right side of the page and it will direct you to your Account page. On your account page, look for the YOUR PAYMENT button on the upper right side. If it’s enabled (not grayed out) like the example below, that means your balance is equal or above the minimum for cashout. Simply click on it and it will send you to a page where you can select which payment option you want to use.
Basically, the withdraw function is almost at the same place for all the PTC sites.
These are the basic things you need to know about navigating through PTC sites. I hope this guide helps you in maximizing your earning potential on all the PTC sites you’ve joined.
