Update: Bucks4Shares is under maintenance mode for the last couple of months after Buxhost, their hosting and script provider closed down. It appears that the admin of Bucks4Shares succeeded to transfer to domain from Buxhost to another registrar and from what we can see he is trying to move the website to the EvolutionScript. Currently the domain is powered by EvolutionScript and it uses a legal EvolutionScript license, but it is still under maintenance mode. We’ll see what happens in the following period.

Update 2 May 2016: Buxhost, the hosting provider and the owner of the NextGen PTC/GPT script (the script used by Bucks4Shares) is closing down and apparently they will no longer provide their services. Due to this reason all buxhost sites are hardly accessible for the last few months. Currently Bucks4Shares is under admin maintenance – there is a message displayed that the admin is trying to move the database to a different script. The NextGen PTC/GPT script is owned and hosted by Buxhost and since Buxhost is closing down, it is likely Bucks4Shares will go down as well, unless the admin manage to transfer the database to a different script. Other problem with the NextGen PTC/GPT script is that the site admin does not really own anything – the domain and the script are owned by Buxhost and as far as I know the domain can’t be transferred to third party registrars and the DNS access is restricted.

So since Buxhost is closing down, now the Bucks4Shares’s future is in question. Therefore we are moving Bucks4Shares from the Established list to the Watch list. Currently the website is not operational and will remain on the Watch list until we have new information regarding the whole situation. We’ll see if the admin manage to find a solution for the problem. One possible solution is to transfer the database to a different script and try to transfer the domain to a different registrar if Buxhost allows or use a different domain for the site.

Bucks4Shares Review – Introduction:

Bucks4Shares is a PTC advertising service that connects advertisers and potential customers from around the world. Bucks4Shares is operating since February 2011. Initially it was running on the NextGen GPT script (Buxhost) and it was paying without major issues until the moment Buxhost decided to close down. Currently Bucks4Shares is under maintenance. As per the admin words, he is trying to move the database to the EvolutionScript.

Things we do like about Bucks4Shares.com:

Long-Standing Site – Bucks4Shares has been online and paying since February 2011. In this industry where most sites don’t last more than few months, this is a good achievement, Bucks4Shares has passed the test of time and has been operating successfully for these years.

Paying site – Bucks4Shares is paying its members. Here you can find payment proofs from other users:
Bucks4Shares payment proof page
Bucks4Shares payment proofs on eMoneyspace

Low & Fixed Minimum Withdrawal – $0.02 is the minimum amount to cashout and does not increase after each cashout. Great, there is no stepped cashout system. Each time you reach $0.02 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. If you are good on referring, you will substantially boost your earnings by earning a percentage of each referral’s clicks.

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

Downsides – Things to Pay Attention to:

BuxHost Site – We can’t judge a site by the script they use, but it should be noted that this site is using the NextGen PTC Script from Buxhost which have a poor reputation among PTC users and many avoid to use buxhost sites. Too many sites powered by Buxhost turned into scams. This script is affordable for everyone’s pocket, which makes it very easy for a person with scamming intentions to open a site and shortly after close the site. However, among all failed buxhost sites, there are only few that are legit and actually paying. Bucks4Shares is one of them.

BuxHost Closed Down – Buxhost, the script and hosting provider closed down. When you “purchase” a buxhost site, you don’t really own anything – the domain and the script are owned by Buxhost and the hosting is provided by Buxhost as well. Which means if buxhost close down, most likely all buxhost sites will go down as well.

Low Click Rates – Takes Long Time to Earn – The click rates are low and vary from $0.0001 to $0.001 and for referral clicks even less. For members without referrals it may be hard to earn. However, the minimum payout is only $0.02 and can be reached easily. Don’t forget that Bucks4Shares have unlimited referral system in place. You can refer new members under you as much as you can to boost your earnings.

  1. I have received total of 4 payout from Bucks4Shares. Unfortunately, the site face a major technical issue because is down the script…

  2. Hi there,

    I’m asking for help. If anyone has any link to my New Forum from Buck$4$hare$ that would be really helpul. I have no idea how I lost the link to forum as I really wanted to put information and updates regarding process of website rebuilding, but I couldn’t do that. I don’t have acces to the forum!

    I paid all pending payments when I had very bad access to the website so, no one left with “pending one” and copied all database (thanks God!).

    I still try to get new script, but faces many problems including one with moving members as script owners tell me that I have to move database MANUALLY… imagine thousands of members and their data moved manually! This only thing would take me month or more… I don’t count other problems as good server and right graphic for the website. All in all I want my website back NOW, but in fact cannot even say approximate date when it will be restored :-/

    One more request for help. I wanted to send message to all my members regading website and updates, but I cannot find good multimail that will be cheap to do it as I have many thousands of members on my website… so, if anyone knows this, please reply here.

    That’s all I can write right now.

    Best regards,
    Admin Marek

    • Forum is unfortunately banned (?) and I don’t know even why as one of my moderators set it up so, that multimail left only. Please, help me with that.

  3. I have received total of 4 payout from Bucks4Shares. Unfortunately, the site face a major technical issue. The script is down. This happen not to Bucks4Shares only. Some other sites such as PartenerSite also get affected too.

    However I still say that this site is legit and trusted.


  4. Hard to make money without referrals. The recently switch from USD to English pounds. Paypal does convert them for you.

    • Instead of putting money to rent referrals you should use this money to promote your site to get DR

  5. Bucks4shares is a scam, BIG TIME! Well I shouldn’t say scam but they definitely have scammy ways if it takes two months to earn $4 bucks.


    • Why did u say to receive payout must be $4? I have receive total of 4 payouts from Bucks4Shares. As far I remember the minimum payout is 3 cents.

      Mind you share your issues with everyone?


  6. hi
    nice review please have a look at http://www.emoneyspace.com/easyearning

  7. buxhost which can make change, paying stable at long time

  8. Congratulations you are overeating. I was already concerned about the industry, see only terrible reviews, but you show how much you are competent and balanced if the PTC is really good, no matter if it bux or is in any script.
    Like to see a r4bux review that is more than 6 months online paying normally.
    Thanks You.

  10. hi
    nice review please have a look at http://www.ptcgiant.blogspot.in

  11. new to sight and im lost on how it works

    • PTCCentral

      Read their FAQ to get better understanding how the program works. Basically, you need to log into your account and view the available ads. You can also promote your referral link (found on the Promotion tools page) to get referrals and commissions from their activity. As soon as you reach the minimum payout, you can cashout your earnings.

  12. abhaya

    join the most high paying ptc sites in the world.5 year old site

  13. qwerty

    i still haven’t received my first cashout. it has been 9 days. how long should i wait?

    • PTCCentral

      As per their ToS, the first cashout is usually processed within 7 days then all next cash outs are instant. If you don’t receive your payout in a day or two, contact them and let us know what happens.

      • qwerty

        I already receive the cash out, but i am wondering why is there a fee in my acct when i cash out while there is no fee stated in the paypal transaction from i got from them

        • PTCCentral

          There is 1% or 2% Paypal Mass Pay fee. The sender is paying this fee, but as members are charged fee on the site when requesting withdrawal, actually members cover the fees. What was the fee, 1% or 2%?

          • qwerty

            ah so. i don’t know the fee percentage

  14. cvengr
