ClixSense Review – Description:
ClixSense is a GPT (Get-Paid-to) program where as a free member you can get paid for completing tasks, surveys and offers. There is an affiliate system in place so you can also earn by referring others to the program. ClixSense has been online and paying for over 10 years. It was founded by Steven Girsky in February, 2007. In May 2010 ClixSense changed ownership and was sold to Jim Grago. ClixSense is well managed and established GPT site, one of the most popular in the GPT world.
Things we do like about ClixSense.com:
Well Managed – ClixSense has been online and paying for over 10 years. It has passed the test of time and has proved to be stable and sustainable program.

Unlimited Affiliate Program – There is no limit to the number of people you can refer to the program and it represents an excellent opportunity for members who can build a big downline. As an affiliate you will earn tasks & offers commissions and signup commissions.
Various Earning Features – Though it started as a PTC program, through the years ClixSense evolved fully into a GPT program that provide different ways to earn. At ClixSense users can earn money online by completing Tasks, completing Offers and surveys, watching videos etc.
Forum – ClixSense does have a very active and friendly forum community. In our opinion, a GPT 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:
High Minimum Cashout – Even though the minimum cashout is fixed at $10.00 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.
