ClixSense Review – Description:

ClixSense is online PTC advertising program, where as a free member you can get paid for visiting ads, up to $0.02 for every website visited as well as for completing tasks and offers, playing games and referring others to the program. Clixsense is over 8 years old and paying PTC site, created by Steven Girsky (old owner) in February, 2007. In May 2010 Clixsense changed ownership and was sold to Jim Grago. ClixSense is well managed and established PTC site, one of the most popular in the PTC world.

Things we do like about

Well Managed – ClixSense has been online for over 8 years. For a PTC site, it is very important how long it has been online and paying. ClixSense has passed the test of time – they are providing their services since 2007 without any serious issues.

Paying – Members are paid on time. Payments are processed each Wednesday before 5PM EST. (Eastern Standard Time). We tested Clixsense and got paid few times so far. Below you can see our payment proofs:

Unlimited Affiliate Program – There is no limit to the number of people you can refer to the site and this is excellent opportunity for members who are able to build a big downline. You will earn click commissions, purchase, tasks or offers, signup and upgrade commissions.

Various Earning Features – Though it started as a PTC program, through the years Clixsense evolved in more like GPT program. Consequently, Clixsense offers a wide range of earning methods to choose from. Users can earn money in few different ways like viewing ads, completing Tasks, completing Offers and surveys, watching videos and playing the grid game. There are 4 Offer Walls available: Matomy, SupersonicAds, TokenAds and SuperRewards.

Forum – ClixSense does have a very active and friendly forum community. In our opinion, a PTC site should have a forum. The forum is a place where members and staff can communicate with each other. Members can post their success stories or doubts, post payment proofs, share the experience that they had with the site, ask for support and stay informed about the recent changes made to the site. Usually, on the forum you can notice the first signs if something is wrong. If members complain about non-payments or payment delays, then most likely the site is experiencing problems.

Downsides – Things to Pay Attention to:

Geo Targeted Ads – The ads are geo targeted. If you are not from North America or Western Europe, you will get less advertisements. The amount of ads, how often they appear and value of advertisements targeted to your specific profile is entirely dependent on the advertisers and will vary from day to day, even hour to hour. Logging into your ClixSense account more frequently should avail more ads to you as you will find ads from smaller advertisers before they are consumed by other members.

High Minimum Cashout – Even though the minimum cashout is fixed at $8.00 and does not increase after each payout, it may be hard to reach this amount, especially if you are clicking on your own, without referrals under you.

  • ClixAddon ClixAddon Browser Extension – The ClixAddon is browser extension that will show a number in the far right hand corner of your browser, and when clicked will display a summary of your ClixSense account. This includes the number of PTC Ads available to click and the number of Surveys and Tasks available to you. It also gives you a quick overview of your account status, including your balance and past and current earnings, plus one-click access to most pages of the ClixSense site. The ClixAddon has a series of options that can quickly be accessed by clicking on the Options button where you can choose what you would like to be notified about (PTC Ads, Surveys and Tasks), and how to be notified – by showing a number on the ClixAddon button, by popup notifications that appear on the taskbar or by the sound alerts. ClixAddon is available for Chrome 30+, Firefox 29+ and Opera 15+. Internet Explorer will not be supported. The old ClixSense Toolbar will slowly be phased out so it’s recommended to uninstall it and start using the ClixAddon only instead. On the following link you can download the ClixAddon. Members who use the addon are more likely to see more ads.
  • Tasks – You can earn money at Clixsense by completing tasks. A task is simply a set of instructions that you need to follow, and when completed, you get paid for it. For example, there may be a task to categorize images or videos, make google searches, etc. Certain tasks will require you to train for the task before it’s completed. Each task can pay you between a few cents to several dollars per completion. For every $50 you earn working on tasks you will get $5.00 Bonus that is instantly credited to your account’s balance.

  • Tasks Contest – The tasks weekly contest is a simple contest running from Monday to Sunday that rewards the top 10 tasks workers. The prizes, total $100 every week, are distributed in the following manner: 1st place $50, 2nd $20, 3rd $10, 4th to 5th $5, 6th to 10th $2.

  • Offers – There are several different types of Offers and few Offer Walls: Matomy, SupersonicAds, TokenAds, SuperRewards, RadiumOne, TrialPay and each with their particularities. After completing an offer, some payments are instant, while others have a waiting period that may take up to 1, 2, 3 or 4 weeks to credit on your account, or even more depending on the advertiser requirements. The rewards are listed as ClixCents although you will be paid cash into your account balance. 1 ClixCent is equivalent to 1 Cent USD.

  • Daily Checklist Bonus Clixsense Checklist bonus – For each day that you complete your Daily Checklist a bonus will be added to your account balance at the end of that day. Premium members will earn up to 16% bonus of their personal earnings, while standard members will earn up to 7% bonus. The bonus amount you can earn is unlimited, it only depends on your activity.

In order to complete the Daily Checklist you need to: click at least 6 PTC Adverts of any kind, click at least 20 ClixGrid squares, either complete at least 10 CrowdFlower Tasks, at least 2 Offers or at least 5 Tasks and 1 Offer, and visit at least one page of the forum.
    ClixAddon Extra Bonus: Complete the checklist and run the ClixAddon for at least one hour in a given day to earn this extra bonus. Important: Survey notifications must be enabled under options.
    Activity Extra Bonus: By completing the checklist three days in a row you will earn this extra bonus on the third day, for that day’s earnings, and every other day thereafter given that you complete the checklist continuously.

  • Paid-to-Click Ads
    Clixsense offers five different types of exposure for the PTC Ads. They are Micro, Mini, Standard, Extended and Sticky. Each has a different exposure time that varies from 3 to 60 seconds and with different options available. They also require a different amount of Ad Credits per click. Sticky Ads use Sticky Ad Credits. Each Sticky Ad Credit gives the right to publish an advert for 24 hours of untargeted and unlimited clicks. You can distribute your Sticky Ad Credits between all your ads in any way you like. For example, if you purchase 7 Sticky Ad Credits you can use them on 7 different ads.

ClixSense Review – Bottom Line:

In our opinion, Clixsense is a safe site to use. The site has passed the test of time and they are paying as promised for over 8 years. With the recently introduced earning methods, even if you do not have referrals, you can still earn a few dollars a day by completing tasks, offers or surveys. Thus, your earning potential now is substantially higher than before. However, referring others to the site is the key for bigger earnings without hard additional effort. If you manage to build active downline, you may consider to upgrade you account to take the benefits of the powerful 8 levels referral system. Their upgrade package is one of the cheapest in the PTC industry, it costs only $17.00 per year. Premium members get more ads with higher click rates, higher bonuses and commissions from their referrals.

  3. remus

    One of the best sites. You can earn money without investing anything through surveys/crowdflower tasks etc, especially if you are from us/uk/ca/au or otherwise good area for surveys. It’s really easy to earn money here and it’s not a scam as it’s been around since 2007 and pays quickly.

    Join through my link and you’ll get some tips on the inside and a good offer if you are active –>

    In case you are interested it also gives pretty good results (at least for me) to reinvest for advertising on Clixsense.

    It is a legitimate site, although it will take a very long time if all you plan to do is to click on ads (1 $0.01 USD click per day, ~15ish $0.001 clicks per day). They do have tasks, surveys, and offers, but as a non-US user (SEA), tasks are particularly scarce.

    A key “selling” point is the “Clixgrid,” which claims to cashout up to $10 USD, but normal prizes are $0.10 or $0.05. You have 30 chances per day, and with the grid being 30×20, chances are pretty slim. I have yet to win.

    Overall, you have nothing to lose if you spend a lot of time on your computer already. Keep in mind that this site does not work if you are on an iPad or Android device. If you do plan to register, it would be much appreciated if you use my referral link! Referrals do not interfere with what you do, so you have nothing to lose, Thanks!

  9. Very thorough post on ClixSense. I’ve been a member of this site since May 29 2009. I mainly used ClixSense for advertising and built 90% of my first Network Marketing downline through it.

    About 3 months ago a decided to build my ClixSense referral base to build a residual income and it’s powering along just fine.

    One of the main reasons I like this program is it gives people, with no money, a chance to earn something without having to pay membership fees that are so common with most business opportunities.

    I’m about to (at the time of this writing) make a post about how to go about getting ClixSense referrals. Because my primary focus will be on the marketing aspect, I’ll be linking back to this post so people can get all the details about what ClixSense actually is.

  14. zogzog

    I love this site, I also have an offer that I will upgrade the account for any of my referrals that I earn $18+ from (costs $15 for me to upgrade as upline). This is a repeating offer meaning that if you are consistently active &/or get referrals yourself I will upgrade your account for you yearly.

    Once you earn $5 I will get $2 from your initial activity as a premium member, if you are a premium member you will also earn $2 right away once any of your direct referrals has earned their first $5. You’ll also earn $2 if any direct referrals upgrade and $1 for any non-direct (tier 2-8) referrals upgrade

    Join me at and be active and you’ll save $17 a year, I also have some tips & tricks as introduction message for you which also holds a link to a page with some other good sites where I reward activity wherever it is possible.

    Being a direct referral here does not mean you earn any less, so all it means is you get the possibility of being upgraded by your upline (me if you join through the link above) which saves you money.

    Cheers :)

  15. It’s one of the best PTC site in the history. Altought you can’t rent any referrals, but I think thats it, what it makes it that succesfull too. Always real users! If you want you can join here!
