Update: Clixzor is back under the original admin. For more details, you can read the announcement posted on their forum. The site has been reset and relaunched, using new database – meaning all old login details will not work. The admin claims that he will be refunding 50% of the money owed to old members over time. Despite this promise, we would not recommend it to any new members at the moment. You can’t just reset all accounts, including balances, memberships and referrals and start over, promising to refund members sometimes in the future. Clixzor will remain on the Sites to Avoid list for now. If they refund members, we will reconsider to change their status here.
December 27: Clixzor is listed for sale. According to the admin, accounts will be reset when the new management takes over. Clixzor will remain on the Sites to Avoid list. We do not recommend sites that reset accounts without providing refunds/compensation to members.
Update 30 October: Things at Clixzor didn’t improve at all since our last update, therefore we are moving Clixzor to the Sites to Avoid list. Clixzor stopped paying through other payment processors as well, besides Paypal and Payza. The forum is currently unavailable and most likely intentionally removed. We would recommend to keep away from Clixzor.
Update 22 October: There are payment issues at Clixzor. Members reported on the forum that payouts are marked sent but not received in their Paypal and Payza accounts. Apparently, Clixzor’s Paypal and Payza account have been limited. Also there are complaints on the forum regarding pending payout requests. The Admin appears to be inactive since the last update a couple of days ago. There is no update from him about the current situation at Clixzor. Until they post a official update, if any, Clixzor will be moved to the Suspect List. Anyway, if the current situation do not improve in a reasonable time, their status here will be downgraded further.
Downsides – Issues to Pay Attention to:
Payment Issues; Stopped Paying – Initially, Paypal and Payza payout requests were marked sent but not received. Moreover, there were pending Paypal and Payza payouts. At that time the site was paying through Solid Trust Pay and Perfect Money, later they have stopped paying through all payment processors.
Paypal Limited – Their Paypal account has been limited. We have seen many times before that limitation of payment processor account can cause a PTC program to collapse. This is a common issue for New PTC sites. We strongly advise to wait and see if they manage to resolve this issue. Do not rush with investments through other payment processors.
Revenue Shares – Any site that is selling revenue shares and using Paypal as payment processor is at risk of having their account frozen due to Paypal policies regarding such activities. Paypal may consider revenue shares as ponzi or “get rich quick” schemes and technically that would be a violation of their Terms. I believe that this was the main reason why they got their Paypal limited.
New & Unproven Program – As usual, we do not recommend buying memberships on new sites (under a year old). Why? Well, most new PTC sites turn into a non-paying programs. In our opinion, it would be better to wait some time until the site proves that it is stable and credible, rather than invest in the early phase and risk to lose your investment if the site stops paying. Be sure to test a new site if you plan to invest. It is best to do your research to make sure it is a legitimate opportunity.
A “Bux” Site – Clixzor can be categorized as a Bux site. The “bux” model have been proven many times as unsustainable. Bux sites heavily relies on selling expensive upgrades or renting referrals to pay members, and usually they are displaying self sponsored ads with high click rate. Typically, a bux site will lack of advertising revenue to cover the cost of the self sponsored ads, which is why they tend to collapse. Be sure to fully test a bux site and do your research if you plan to invest money.
