The announce from them is a bit old, but I though I wait a little before writing down my opinion, as I thought they still might change their mind, but today we had to realize they did not, so:
Today ClixSense stopped working as a PTC site!
They posted a long announcement on the forum, which can be read here:
Moving forward with change
After reading the topic, it’s easy to see, that the reason of closing the PTC side of the 10 year old site is mainly the loss of their PayPal account.
In my opinion they have done the worst in this case, as they will lose most of their non-US members, as they can’t earn money daily with ClixSense, as – sadly – offers and surveys are rarely available for non-US users. CrowdFlower could be an option, but it’s not a trusted company, they suspend account for no reason and they have no active support to get things right. For those who can actively use CrowdFlower, Neobux pays better…
They could have continued without PayPal, they should have implemented some changes in the terms or referral program to make their PTC section profitable, if it was not since PayPal has gone.
So all in all, ClixSense users who are not from the US or some EU countries (like Germany) lost most of their earning possibilities, while it is not guaranteed that the site will get it’s PayPal account back. But even if it will get PayPal back, it will still be an option for only the minority who can earn nicely with the site without the PTC section…
