Earning Money Through Ads
Advertisements are one way to earn in Neobux. Once you finish viewing these Ads you will receive money and be able to get clicks from referrals tomorrow.
First go to the view advertisements page by clicking view advertisements in the top right.

The amount of ads displayed will be different for each different membership. As a standard you get 4 ads and as golden you get 9 ads. With certain golden packs you get more ads. You can also get more ads throughout the day as occasionally an extra ad will show.

If you have already clicked your ads then there will be a gray clock, if it is an ad that needs to be clicked, then the star will be yellow. Click on the blue title of the ad and a red dot will appear. Click the red dot to open the ad page, and the ad page will open up in a new window or browser. Wait for the advertisement to load. To get you money you have to wait for the ad to credit, to do this wait for the bar to completely load. Once its done loading it will display that the advertisement has been validated and you will receive money into your Main Balance.
In order to be credited for your referral clicks, you must click according to server time.

According to the NeoBux Terms of Service: clicks you earn from referrals are directly related to the clicks you make. If you click at least 4 advertisements being a Standard / Pioneer member or you click at least 9 advertisements being a Golden member, you'll receive all clicks made from your referrals. If you click below that, the maximum you will receive is only the amount of clicks you've made multiplied by the number of referrals you have. The referral clicks will be calculated based on the clicks you made on the previous day. These calculations are based on the server time which can be seen in the "View Advertisements" page.

Inside of the golden background it tells you how many clicks you must make in order to receive unlimited clicks from your referrals. In the white background it shows when your clicks reset and the server time. You must click your ads before the server time hits midnight(00:00). Click after the ad reset time but within the current server day. Click after ad reset time but within the next server day (and before the next ad reset time).

Types of Ads
There are three types of ads that you will get at NeoBux and each has a different time duration and amount paid.
Mini Ads (15 secs)
Standard Ads (30 secs)
Extended Ads (60 secs)

Pioneer and Standard Membership
Per click: $0.010 (standard ad) · $0.015 (extended ad)
Per referral click: $0.005 (standard ad) · $0.010 (extended ad)

Golden Membership
Per click: $0.010 (standard ad) · $0.020 (extended ad)
Per referral click: $0.010 (standard ad) · $0.020 (extended ad)

Referrals is how you earn most of your money through NeoBux. You can either rent them or refer people to the site directly. Referrals clicks ads and each ad click that they do, they get credited for it and so do you.

The renting balance is used to rent referrals and pay for extending them.

You can deposit money into your rental balance by going to your account page by going to your account summary.

Click on Renting Balance: You can transfer money into the Renting Balance through your Main Balance/AlertPay/PayPal/Netteller. Once you have enough money in your Rental Balance, you can rent referrals. The prices for each referral is listed under the Referral section of this website. Click on the REFERRALS button on your NeoBux main account page and it will bring you to another window where you can choose how many referrals you want to rent.
They come in packages of 3/10/20/30/50/70/100/200/300. (The 200/300 packs are only for Ultimate members).

You can determine the cost of each package before your rental hours and figure out how much they cost beforehand so you can be prepared when it comes time for you to rent. Say that you have 500 rented referrals, it will cost you $21 to rent 100 referrals. $0.21/referral multiplied by 100 referrals. Say that you have 1000 rented referrals, it will cost you $23 to rent 100 referrals. $0.23/referral multiplied by 100 referrals.

You can set your renting hours through the Personal button. You have two chances a day to rent referrals. There's also limits to the days that you can rent on. Ultimate members can rent any day that they want.

Sunday: Only users without rented referrals can try to rent on this day.
Monday: Only users with less than 201 referrals can try to rent on this day.
Tuesday: Only users with less than 501 referrals can try to rent on this day.
The rest of the week: Everyone (including the mentioned above) can try to rent referrals.

So, here's the days of week you can rent depending on the rented referrals you have:
No referrals: You can try to rent everyday.
Less than 201 referrals: You can try to rent from Monday to Saturday.
Less than 501 referrals: You can try to rent from Tuesday to Saturday.
More than 500 referrals: You can try to rent from Wednesday to Saturday.
When you rent referrals, they last 30 days and after 30 days they expire and you lose them. However, you can choose to extend them so that you will keep that referral slot and they will continue to make you money.
The options to renew are:

* Autopay(10% Discount) -Autopay pays to extend a referral an extra day when that referral clicks.
* 30 Day Renewal
* 60 Day Renewal(10% Discount)
* 90 Day Renewal(20% Discount)

You can renew your referrals by clicking the Rented button on the left sidebar or Rented Referral Listing on the upper right corner. It will bring you to a screen that shows your rented referral listing. Here you can manage your referrals that you have through recycling and extending. You can extend your referral through this page by checking the box next to them and scrolling to the bottom of the page.

AutoPay offers a 10% discount from regular 30 day renewing and can be very useful. AutoPay will pay to keep a referral an extra day instead of monthly. AutoPay pays for each referral that click today to be renewed one day. Autopay is easy to use as you do not have to worry about extending your referrals if they click daily.

A chart of costs is below:
Say you have 500 rented referrals. If that referral clicks that day, $0.0060 will be taken out of your account to pay that referral an extra day.
If you have 1000 rented referrals and a referral clicks that day, $0.0070 will be taken out of your account to pay that referral and extra day.

To enable AutoPay, click on the rented referral page and Click on [ENABLE] to enable AutoPay or you can disable AutopPay by clicking [DISABLE].

Direct referrals can also be used on NeoBux to earn you money. You can only get direct referrals after you have been a member of NeoBux for at least 30 days and you have a minimum of 100 clicks done on your account by you. Direct referrals are the same as rented referrals since they earn you money for every click that they make. However, you do not have to rent them or pay to keep them.

You can view your direct referrals by clicking the Direct Referral listing on the upper right of the screen or the Direct button on the left sidebar.

Referrals are people just like you and me. They come to this website to make some extra money, however there are some who click sometimes and decide to stop or they forget. You can recycle that referral and get another one who is hopefully better than that recycled referral.

It costs money to recycle that referral, and it is better to recycle them instead of keeping a bad referral who will not earn you money. Normally it will cost $0.08 to recycle a referral, but with certain Golden Pack upgrades it is cheaper.

On the Rented Referral page you can click on the green button and it will bring up a drop down menu which asks if you wish to recycle them. You must have money in your Rental Balance to recycle and if you do not, just transfer the amount needed then recycle.

You can also click on the box next to the referral and scroll down and recycle them that way.

The referral statistics page will help you manage your referrals through charts. Here you will see charts for how many different things that will help you see how well your referrals are doing and your spendings.

Direct Referral Clicks Credited: How many clicks your direct referrals made that were credited to your account.
Rented Referral Clicks Credited: How many clicks your rented referrals made that were credited to your account.
Recycle Value: How much you spent on recylcling.
AutoPay Value: How much you spent on AutoPay.
One More Months Payment: How much you spent that day on monthly extensions(30/60/90 days).
Transfers to Rental Balance: How much you transferred money into your rental balance.
Total Number Of Referrals With Scheduled Payments For The Next 90 Days: When your referrals you have are expiring.
Referral Earnings: Shows your earnings and expenses for that day.
Daily Referral Profit: Shows how much profit you made for that day.

The Referral Earnings and Daily Referral Profit are only for Ultimate members.

Cashouts are the reason why you are using NeoBux as this is how you will receive your money through PayPal/AlertPay/Netteller. On your main account page, once you reach the minimum cashout amount and have the sufficient funds in your Main Balance, you can click on YOUR PAYMENT and receive your money.

The minimum amount paid is $2.00 on the first cashout.

This amount will increase by $1.00 for each cashout until it reaches a fixed minimum amount of $10.00.

After that, the minimum amount will always be $10.00

By default, once you create a NeoBux account your private messaging is disabled. For each membership there is a limit on how many personal messages you can send/receive a day and it In order to enable it and allow members to contact you through private messages, click on the message banner. Once here, scroll down and choose YES or NO.

The ChatRoom is another way to communicate with other NeoBux users and ask them questions or just chit chat. First, click on Chat on the upper right hand corner. Once here, you can choose what language rooms you want to go into and start chatting with other members.

The NeoBux forums is also a great way to communicate with other users, look at announcements, other people's posted stats, their success stories, payment proofs, and problems or issues that a user has. First, click on the Forum button on the upper right hand corner. Then you can start posting!

NeoBux offers various ways to get support if you have a problem/issue. You can post up a problem on the forums under Problems and Doubts or Bug Reports.

Now sell your referrals at Neobux

Yes, you read it read. Neobux will pay you money to buy your direct referrals, a first in PTC world...true to its tag line..innovations in PTC. According to the admin, they have decided to buy direct referrals from you if you have any and with all probability the more active your referrals are, the more higher you can charge for them. Great concept it sounds like...lets see how it goes once it is implemented. This is what Neobux admin said:

"Starting in a few days, we will pay you a good amount for your direct referrals. Yes, that's right. We already spend thousands each month in all ways we can to get new unreferred members. Why not let our users earn from that as well?
When phase 3 is totally implemented, you'll get a new announcement from me as this one is just to keep you posted.

We need users, users need money. Users have users, we have money. Mix that up really fast and you'll get a new opportunity to earn and also a way to increase our distribution.

There will be some imposed limits to which direct referrals you can sell, obviously, and they'll be defined later on the official announcement. We'll be purchasing direct referrals you want to sell (no one is forced to) and under some predefined rules. This is not a monetary investment in our behalf since it would take months to get one purchased user back to give profit (and without guarantees) but it's a costly investment in our distribution's future stability.

This is why this change is called "One for all and all for one". Everyone helps everyone.

I know I could go the easy way and limit direct referrals acquisition or earnings but that's not the essence of NeoBux.

Why take something away when we can do the same but by giving something in return?
We're here for you and the more you earn, the happier we get.

I know some users had not seen the future as I predicted it nor they could.
That's why the news about the whole implementation were given slowly and in this order. It helped to teach some that we're not here for greed nor money and that, in the end, it's the users we really care about. It's a lesson that they'll take and always remember.

Even users who never spent a cent can earn from this. It's an equal opportunity for all members.

We've invented referral renting and now we debut the direct referral purchases.
Since this won't give money to PTC owners who have referral factories, and as any other feature we have that only costs us, you'll probably never see this anywhere.

There you have it. Another step to turn the PTC model in a true, honest, reliable, and profitable one.

In a few days you'll get the full announcement with all the details explained.
Until then, start calculating."

So, friends, join Neobux and earn more and more...really Neobux rocks!!!

Tuesday, November 03, 2009 turns into another PTC scam

One more bad news for all the PTC users after the collapse of Buxwiz. The so promising PTC site finally made the terrible announcement on the forum that Paypal has permanently closed their account, so maybe for all the users, this might be the end of their hopes. This is what the administrator has announced formally:

"Terrible news.
PayPal permanently closed our account.
Sending and receiving of payments with our PayPal account has been stopped over a week ago, that's why payments have been stopped since then. This is all I get after logging in to my account:

Why is my account access limited?
Your account access has been limited for the following reason(s):
Oct 28, 2009: We have observed activity in this account that is unusual or potentially high risk.
Oct 26, 2009: A recent review of your account detected suspicious activity regarding the receipt or withdrawal of funds. While we investigate this matter, access to your account is limited.

Phone support is just useless, and e-mail support is not better at all. I've been in contact with them since I first noticed that, and here are their replies:

For the safety and security of the PayPal network, we often review accounts
for potential risks. After reviewing your account, we have decided to close
it because of security issues.

We are making every effort to minimize any disruption to your business.
If your PayPal account balance is zero, and you have no unresolved buyer
complaints or chargebacks, your account will remain limited.

Thank you for contacting PayPal in relation to sending and receiving
payments via PayPal.

For the safety and security of the PayPal network, we often review accounts
for potential risks. After reviewing your account, we have decided to close
it because of security issues.

We are making every effort to minimize, Paiva any disruption to your
business. If your PayPal account balance is zero, and you have no unresolved buyer
complaints or chargeback’s, your account will remain limited.

Thank you for contacting PayPal in relation to the permanent limitation on
our account.

I apologise, Mr. Paiva, if you feel the information and service you have
received is unacceptable. However, I can only re-iterate what has already
been said.

PayPal reserves the right to close any account reported to be involved in
possible high-risk behavior. In the event of a dispute, PayPal will seek to
recover the funds from you by debiting your PayPal balance first and, if
there are insufficient funds in your PayPal balance, PayPal reserves the
right to collect your debt to PayPal by any other legal means. We are under
no obligation to provide any additional information on permanent account
limitations, and do not provide any further information as this may assist
with future circumventing of our account reviewing.

If you are determined to find the reason why your account may have been
limited, please review the entire user agreement, particularly in relation
to locking accounts, and review whether any of the terms of use may have
been breached.

This sucks. I couldn't even come here to let you know this, as I was hoping they would reverse their one-sided decision. They never gave me a reason for what they've done. If they just unfrozen the funds, I'd act like nothing happened and continue to send payments as usual. Everyone would be happy.
They have close to 90% of our funds.

I need your help. Let me know what I can do for us to stay as strong as ever.
Thanks for your support."

That means we are left only with 3 genuine PTC on the web, Neobux, Clixsense, and Palmbux. So, its my request to all my fellow PTC users to use only these three PTC sites and forget everything else.
