Update May 21: There are few issues at Goldenclix to which you should pay attention. Is the site still paying? Yes, it appears so. New payment requests are processed as per their ToS, but that’s not the case with older payment requests. As you already know, the site had Paypal issues due to which older payment requests (from mid April) are delayed for more than a month. What’s more concerning is that the site is suspending members when they post questions, complaints or concerns on the forum regarding their pending payments. And those forum threads are expressly deleted. Which brings me to the conclusion that the site does not want to resolve this issue the right way. It is easy to ban members and take from them what they have rightfully earned. But it is not the right way. And we will not endorse such sites. The number of complaints we are receiving regarding this issue is increasing and there are also similar complaints over the web on other PTC related forums, blogs and groups. In case anyone have forgotten, the same admin also owns Balkanikaclix.com which is no longer paying. There are no new payments for over a month, since April 14. We will no longer recommend Goldenclix and all other sites from the Golden Group. Goldenclix have been moved to the Sites to Avoid list. I encourage those of you who were suspended just for asking about your pending payment, to post your experience that you had with Goldenclix in the comment section below. They can censor you on their forum, but surely they can not censor you here.
Update Apr 28: After they got their Paypal accounts limited, GoldenClix merged with the Zigma network that owns Twickerz and YouGetProfit. From now on, the Paypal account of the Zigma network will be used to process payments. We’ll see how this thing will work out. From what I can see, they started to process payments with the new Paypal account. As stated by the Goldenclix admin in his latest announcement, all pending payments should be cleared out in the next couple of days. We’ll see what happens.
Goldenclix.com Downsides – Things to Pay Attention to:
Forum Censorship – Forum posts that contains questions, complaints or concerns regarding pending payments are being deleted and the posters are banned. So you will not find many complaints on their forum, but that does not means everything is working smoothly. Members have valid reasons to complain, but if they do it on Goldenclix, they will get banned and their posts will be deleted. Forums should be a place for open and free discussions, place where members can ask for support, advice, post their doubts and concerns etc. This way, with “sensitive” posts being deleted, the administration wants to hide the negative feedback about their site, and does not want others to know what is really going on with the site.
Payout Delays, Selective Payments – There are long (30+ days) payment delays for payout requests placed in mid April. The site is experiencing financial issues after Paypal limited their accounts. They are using another Paypal account now, but older payment requests are not processed on time and what’s more important, if a member asks about his pending payment on the forum, he will get banned and his post will be deleted.
Old Paypal Limited – Their first Paypal account was limited. Later they added another Paypal account which also appears to be limited. Now the site merged with Zimga network and using their Paypal account. We’ll see if Paypal gives them any additional troubles in future.
A Bux site – Goldenclix 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 test a new bux site and do your research if you plan to invest. And remember, never invest more than you can afford to lose.
