Update: Earn-on is no longer online. Moved from the Not Recommended list to the Failed sites list.
Update August 9: It is getting worse on Earn-on since our last update. Admin is still inactive, there are no new payments, they are not answering support tickets. Looks like Earn-on is abandoned from his owner. Enough for me to move them to the Not Recommended list.
Update August 6: Moved to the Suspect list. Earn-on is not doing very well currently. There are payment issues, ranging from disabled payment processors, reversing Paypal payments, long payout delays, unanswered support tickets etc. Moreover, the admin decided to remain silent and he is not responding to members questions, concerns or doubts. There are a lot of complaints on the forum about unresolved issues. The current situation at Earn-on does not look promising at all, therefore we are moving them to the Suspect list.
Why Earn-on.com ended up as a Scam:
Payments issues – Regarding payments, there were a lot of issues on Earn-on. Things like disputing already completed Paypal payouts, long delays for Payza, selective payments etc. Later they have stopped paying.
Inactive admin – The admin was inactive for a long period of time while his site was experiencing issues. There was no word from him about the situation at the site and he doesn’t respond to members concerns and questions.
A Bux Program – Earn-on was a Bux site, a model that is not sustainable and doomed for a failure. Bux sites offer self sponsored ads with higher click rate compared to real ptc sites. For bux sites, the main source of income is from selling memberships and renting referrals. Usually, at the beginning there will be sufficient income gained from members investments or rentals, and the site could pay its members without issues, but as time marches on, more and more investors will start making profits, and very likely the site will be in a situation to owe more to members than the generated income, because usually there is no big base of advertisers that will compensate the difference in the cash flow.
The “bux” model has been proven many times as unsustainable. A bux program can continue to pay with money gained from other activities, such as forex, binary options etc. but for how long? Not too long for sure. Bux site heavily relies on selling upgrades or renting out referrals to pay members, and in most cases the main advertiser is the admin himself. Typically, a bux site will lack of advertising revenue, which is why they tend to collapse.
Earn-on is a good example why bux sites tend to collapse. Earn-on was a poorly managed site which will be remembered as a scam. The site is no longer online therefore it has been moved from the Not Recommended list to the Failed sites list.
