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 7 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 ClixSense.com:

Well Managed – ClixSense has been online for over 7 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 send on every Monday and Friday afternoon EST (Eastern Standard Time). Clixsense paid us few times as well:

  • 20th Payment Proof

Buxp - Remarkable PTC Take your earning potential to the next level. Do not miss out this great opportunity to earn online!
GPTPlanet - Paying Since 2010 Join GPTPlanet and start earning cash online. Minimum Payout as low as $1.00.

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.

  • 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.

The more you play the better your chances of finding that wining spot.

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 7 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.

    I usually work on tasks and play Clixgrid. I learned about clixsense from this free ebook : http://at5.us/freereport

  4. Joe Doe

    Clixsense has by FAR the highest payout I have seen per ad of all the PTC sites I have used. This , I think somewhat makes up for its high minimum withdrawal amount. As everyone said, this is definitely a great site. Ok, won’t lie, I am constantly looking for referrals, so if you would be so kind as to use my referral link, that would be great:
    http://www.clixsense.com/?6275018.. Thanks and good luck!

  8. Hi admin when will our referral earnings add to our main balance

    • Referral earnings are added instantly to your balance, the same moment when your referral got credited for his clicks or completed tasks/offers. Are you having issues with your referral earnings?

        • Total shows the lifetime earnings you made since you joined, including your personal click earnings, referral earnings, earnings from tasks, offers, clixgrid and the daily check list bonus.

          Balance shows the amount of money you currently have in your account.

          Total is equal to your current balance + payouts + purchases made from your account balance.

          As seen on your screenshot, you don’t have any payouts or purchases so far, so Total and Balance should be equal. Are they not equal in your account stats?

            • Have you been inactive (no logins) for more than 90 days? If member has been inactive for more than 90 days his balance will be reset to zero. That’s the only reason I can think of why Total and Balance are not equal in your account. Send them a support ticket regarding this.

              • Yes! Admin I was inactive,recently I activated my account :D .

  9. Wadi diab 8

    Clixsense Is a great company i earn more than $400 from it just from the tasks and the offers and referrals

  10. Anand

    Clixsense is a reliable and a stable ptc site. I have been using clixsense for the past one and a half months and i have already earned $7.69 as a standard member! The key is to get direct referrals and completing the awesome offers they provide. And dont forget to complete tasks which would make you some extra cash! To join click the link below….!

  11. Hi admin,do we earn only upgrade commission from our referral-referrals(1-8 levels),or also from there ptc ad clicks?

    • From level 2 to 8 we can earn only upgrade commissions (applies only to Premium members).

      We can earn click commissions only from our first level referrals.

      Free members can earn upgrade commission only from their direct referrals (1 level).

      Upgraded members can earn upgrade commissions through 8 levels.
