Update 11 March 2016: Moved from the Legit list to the Watch list due to payout delays. Auywage is not paying on time for the last couple of months. Moreover their support system appears to be unresponsive. As a precaution, we are moving Auywage to the Watch list and it will remain there until they get back on track with payments or it may be moved to the Not Recommended list if things get worse than they are right now.

AyuWage Review – Description:

AyuWage is a site that will pay you for what you do everyday, surfing the internet. This Paid to Click program has been around and paying since 2010. At AyuWage, you can get paid to surf websites, answer surveys, to search or to complete offers. You will earn credits for each activity on their website. Each credit is worth $0.0005. Once you have reached 10,000 credits (equals to $5.00), you will be eligible for a cash out request.

Things we do like about AyuWage.com:

Long-Standing Site – AyuWage has passed the test of time – it has been online and paying more than 5 years, which is great achievement for any paid-to-click site. Most ptc sites do not last for a period as long as that.

Fixed Minimum Withdrawal – $5.00 is the minimum amount to cash out and does not increase after each payout request. Good thing is that there is no stepped cash out system. Each time you reach $5.00 in your account balance, you can request a payout.

Unlimited Referral Program – There is no limit to the number of people you can refer to the site, which is excellent opportunity for members who are able to build a big downline.

Free Worldwide service – It is free to join and there are no restrictions, individuals from all over the world are allowed to join the site and earn from it.

Downsides – Things to Pay Attention to:

Payout Delays – The biggest drawback of Ayuwage are the payout delays. For the last few months, Ayuwage is not paying on time, as per their terms they should pay withing 7 business days, however it takes around a month to receive a payment. In the recent announcement posted on their forum, they claim the reason for the delays is shortage of staff, and they said the issue would be resolved shortly. However even after hiring additional staff, the payout delays are still present. So it appears that the shortage of staff is not the reason for the payout delays, but most likely financial issues and instability.

Poor Support System – The support system appears to be unresponsive, so if you have any issue with your account and you contact them to resolve your issue, it is unlikely that you will receive any response. One thing is for sure, responsive support system is important for any site as it is the only way (despite the forum) to get in touch with the site’s administration. When members have an important issue or question, they expect the customer support department to resolve their issues, but that’s not the case on Ayuwage. Again they say it is due to shortage of staff and they claim the issue will be resolved soon.

Account Suspensions & Warnings – Lately we have received few complaints regarding account suspensions due to too much warnings accumulated. At Ayuwage, unlike other PTC sites, there is warning system in place, if you go over 3 warnings your account will be permanently suspended when they audit your account after placing a payment request. Those who got suspended claim that they didn’t do anything wrong and followed the provided instructions, yet they received warnings which resulted in account suspension. It is hard to say if these members were wrongfully banned, with this warning system in place it is difficult to say that the site is suspending members on purpose. It is possible that those members didn’t follow the instructions or clicked the anti cheat ad. It is possible that the warning system might be buggy and sometimes it could give false positive warnings. We never had any problems with the warning system, I believe that if you follow the instructions and respect their TOS, you will be on the safe side.

Click Fraud – They have section called Regular ads. When you visit a site from this section, you will also need to “click on contents that interest you”. From the instructions:

“You Must Click On An Advertisement that Interests You. Failure to do so will result in a warning which will add up towards to a permanent suspension!”.

So they are asking members to click advertisements on other sites which can be considered as click fraud. Click fraud is an illegal practice that occurs when individuals click on website click through advertisements to increase the payable number of click throughs to the advertiser. Click fraud is type of internet crime and should not be supported by PTC site.

Inactive Rented Referrals – It appears that this site is renting out referrals that have not been active for months or years. So decide carefully before renting on this site, although I would not recommend to rent.

Geo-Targeted Ads – This site works best for US members. There are plenty of ads available for US members, on average worth around $0.25 per day. For all others, the number of ads will vary from day to day, even from hour to hour so you may want to check multiple times per day to see if there are additional ads to click.

  • Important Info About the Site
  • Changes and Updates
  • Account Warnings – There is a warning system in place, you may get a warning because you did not follow the instructions for viewing the site such as waiting 10 seconds before closing the site window or browsing the site contents (click on ads displayed on the website) after 10 seconds. You will also receive a warning if you click the anti cheat link. If you go over 3 warnings, your account will be permanently suspended along with your earnings. So pay attention when viewing ads and follow the instructions. If you receive a warning, I would recommend to wait for the warnings to expire before you proceed with viewing other ads. Your warnings should expire after 24-48 hours.
  • Anti-Cheat Ad – Sometimes, among other ads there may be anti-cheat link. It says: “WARN | B0T DET3CTION | DO N0T Cl!CK”. If you click the link it will add a warning to your account, which will expire within 24-48 hours.

  • Viewing ads – Ayuwage is not like your everyday PTC site. The number of ads is not guaranteed. Sometimes there may be more ads available for you, sometimes less. Ads are constantly added throughout the day, so you may want to check multiple times during the day to see if there are any new ads available.
  • Pays per Referral Click – 10% from ads value.
  • Tasks – They have CrowdFlower tasks, among other earning features. You can complete tasks and earn credits instantly in your main balance. There may be a tasks to categorize images or videos, make google searches, find particular information on a website, etc.
  • Radio Loyalty – Listen to the radio and earn credits every 10-30 minutes. You’ll be prompted to enter a captcha every 10-30 minutes to receive your credit.
  • Toolbar – They have Toolbar with instant ads notification. Members who use the toolbar are more likely to see more ads.
  • Cashout Options and Conditions – All payments are made through Paypal and Payza. The minimum to cashout is $5.00 (10000 credits) for Paypal and $5.00 (11500 credits, 15% fee included) for Payza and does not increase after each payout request. As per the TOS payments are processed within 5-7 business days of request.
  • Inactive Accounts Suspension – Account that have been inactive for a period of 90 days or longer will be consider an inactive member. Inactive members will have all account activity and history removed from their accounts. Referrals and credit earnings will also be permanently removed from an inactive member.
  • Script: Custom
  • Owner: Unknown – same owner of Innocurrent
  • March 11, 2016 – Moved from the Legit list to the Watch list due to payout delays.
  • February 6, 2015 – Account inactivity period increases from 60 to 90 days.

AyuWage Review – Summary:

Ayuwage is behind on payments for the last couple of months. It has happened in the past and they managed to get back on track with payments, but right now the payment delays continue to persist for extended period of time. Ayuwage will remain on the Watch list for the time being. We’ll continue to monitor this site. Currently we would not recommend new members to join Ayuwage because the site is experiencing financial issues. We’ll see what happens in the following period.

  1. Ayuwage have not paid me two payments I asked since January 2016. First ordered a payment of $ 5.00 and later asked for another payment of $ 10.00. Until today received nothing Ayuwage.

    • Dark Metal Asuka Kazama

      I know where you are coming from. I’m waiting on a payment from March 28. Now, I’ve seen new posts on payments this week, but that don’t mean shit (showing proofs from several weeks).

      Ayuwage is understaffed, my ass. They’re giving excuses is what it is. If I were you, hun, leave that site alone. There are better ones I will gladly use. Hmph!

      Some of y’all may have been paid within the ostensible 7-day payment schedule, but you won’t be so lucky come next payout request.

      Again, I suggest y’all run away from the Ayuwage sites as fast as you can. This may just be the end of the line for them.

    • Hello everyone. As you can see a few days ago I wrote the above post saying AyuWage not paid me. Now I’m here again to undo what I wrote earlier. In fact AyuWage paid yesterday all I had to receive. I’m glad this because this site had never failed a payment. Good luck to everyone.

  2. bajakan21

    they do not return my ticket
    and I’m still waiting

  3. Waiting for my payment since 03.31.16

    • You should submit a ticket. They do reply. I have never missed any payment till now. Hopefully in few days I will make my 6th $10 payment. 🙂

  4. Umair

    Ayuwage is back in paying within 7 days
    My first payment took 24 days , second took 22 days , third payment took 6 days, last week.
    I will update after 4 th cash out with payment proof

  5. Dark Metal Asuka Kazama

    Ayuwage & Innocurent are no longer worth using for me. Sure, I’ve had delayed payments same as most of y’all, but this time it’s too much. There are better sites I can use.

    I know they said they’re understaffed, but I don’t believe that this will be resolved anytime soon.

    I’m done with them. Even if I am paid, I still won’t return. I dare say, I respect these sites, but I don’t trust them.

    Still want to stay with them? I wish you luck (you’re going to need it).

  6. bajakan21

    I’m cashout on 31 march and now still waiting

  9. Krsytul

    Hi Everyone,
    When I saw the post from Alice, I emailed her and explained that I had not received my payment. She responded back very quickly. Then she sent my payment right away. So whatever issues there were before just might be resolved now, hopefully.
    I thought I would let everyone know what is going on. Thanks for your time.

      Alice, i’m not sure if its correctly post it here, but, the payment method still is the same? i see some members request cashout 2 days ago and they get payment in almost 48hs, there is no more 1 week betweem cashout required and payout?

      • Ayuwage Alice

        Not a problem. The payment time frame is between 1 to 7 business days. We are looking to keep to this promise.

    • ptawatchai

      Hello, dear support. my account was banned. It is asking you to remove the ban, because I tried very hard to comply with all instructions and I’ve never been 3 warnings, so I do not really understand what I was banned. Thanks for the answer!

    Looks like I’ve returned to PTC/GPTs in… less than 24 hours!

    On a more serious note, though, I’ve received payment. Cashed out this past Tuesday and I have received in yesterday. Yatta!


    However, Ayuwage still has a long way to go to recover from this… well, you know.

    I pray for all who have been waiting 30+ days for payment they be paid soon.

  12. Lucas

  13. Robert

    They paid me with exactly 30 days delay.

  14. Toni

    ..::AyuWage=InnoCurrent=SCAM::.. WARNING!!!

  17. mike

    If one gets suspended,can one open a new account from the same ip?

  18. No Payment On AyuWage For Now Because There Is a Problem On MinuteStaff

  19. Dark Metal Asuka Kazama

    Today, I have cashed out for $5. I do not expect to be paid due to extreme payout delays. I’m not coming back to this for a while.

    Oh, before I forget… I finally received my previous $5 Amazon GC. I received it early last month. Yatta!

    Mercy… I may give up GPTs/PTCs for now since the MinuteStaff offer wall (which works very similarly to Ayuwage) on the sites I use will be down indefinitely.

    Saa, soshite… y’all take it easy. I’ll return toGPTs/PTCs someday…

  20. Leremedian

    Absolutely scam/cheat site, selective payment, suspend and using many way to get money without pay.
    I don’t know why PTC Central still put it in “Legit PTC”? Friend? Brother? or same owner ???
