Update April 10 2015: I received my Hits4Pay payment with a delay of 45 days. The site will remain on the Watch list until the moment they get back on track with payments and start paying out without delays.

Update Feb 28 2015: Hits4Pay is still behind on payments. I was supposed to receive my payment between February 15 and February 25, but it didn’t happen.
hits4pay payout delays

Update Sep 22 2014: I received my Hits4Pay payment with a delay of 30+ days. Hits4Pay is still paying but with delays. The site will remain on the Watch list until the moment they get back on track with payments and start paying without delays.

Update Sep 21 2014: Moved from the Established list to the Watch list due to payout delays. Hits4pay is not paying on time. I have a pending payment, my account balance was cleared out on July 1, 2014 and I was supposed to receive the payment between August 15 and August 25, but I didn’t received it yet. I have information that other members are not getting paid too. Also on their Facebook page people post questions regarding their pending payouts, they respond to these questions then delete them and leave only their replies. As a precaution, Hits4Pay has been downgraded to the Watch list. Use caution with them, they had have long delays 2 years ago, when they went months behind on payments. Will see if they send out the pending payments and when. Otherwise, Hits4Pay will be downgraded to the Not Recommended list.

Hits4Pay Review – Description:

Hits4pay is an Internet advertising network that is sharing it’s advertising revenue with it’s members. The site has been around since 2001, and it is one of the oldest programs of its kind. As a member of Hits4Pay, you can earn by viewing advertisers paid emails. When there are paid ads available, you will receive notification directly to the email address that is listed on your Hits4Pay account. You must login to your Hits4pay account to read paid ads. Sometimes notifications will not go out, so you may want to log in and check if there are paid ads available. The site was doing well for the last 2 years, after they had issues with long payout delays, however now again they are behind on payments, which is the reason why we have downgraded their status to the Watch list.

Positive Aspects – Things we do like about Hits4pay.com:

Paying PTC site – Hits4Pay is paying but there are delays. We tested the site and we got paid with delay of 30 days and for the next time with delay of 45 days:

  • Second Payment Proof
  • First Payment Proof

On the links below you can find payment proofs from other users:
Hits4Pay Payment Proofs Google search
Payment Proofs on eMoneyspace Forum

Unlimited Affiliate Program – There is no limit to the number of people you can refer to the site and this is excellent opportunity for members that can build a big downline. If you refer a lot of people and build an active downline, you could earn a solid additional income. They pay $0.01 for every referral click up to 2 levels. Very few sites offer such lucrative referral earnings.

Worldwide Service – There are no resctrictions, individuals from all countries are allowed to join the site. However, you must have a valid Paypal account to receive a payment.

Sign Up Bonus – New members can get free $5 sign up bonus. To qualify for the signup bonus approval, users must: provide valid mailing address and email address, fill out the secure USA tax form, members will not be eligible to withdraw the signup bonus if the minimum earning ($25) has not been accumulated.

Downsides – Things to Pay Attention to:

Payout Delays – The site is not paying on time, there are delays of 30-45 days. Refer to the update above for more info.

High Minimum Cashout – Although the minimum cashout is fixed at $25.00 and does not increase after each cashout, for members without referrals, it may take really long time to earn sufficient amount for payment.

Geotargeted Ads; Low Number of 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 profile is entirely dependent on the advertisers and will vary from day to day. Sometimes, you may not get ads at all for days, depending on your location.

No Forum – This site does not have a forum. In our opinion, a PTC site should have a forum. The forum is a place for communication between members and staff. Members can share their experience on the forum, post their success stories, post payment proofs, get 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.

  • Important Info About the Site
  • Changes and Updates
  • Referral Earnings – Members will get credited 1 cent per validated email read by their affiliates up to 2 levels.
  • Account Approval Process – Upon creation of a Hits4Pay Member account, all applicants must be Approved manually by an account representative. Hits4Pay reserves the right to deny any application at any time there has been a violation of the Terms Of Services. Users accounts are manually approved by Hits4Pay staff. Approval process can take up to 24 to 48 hours.
  • Invalid Email Address – If their servers receive multiple bounce-back error message or undeliverable emails, member’s account will be turned to inactive status. During inactive mode, members will not receive any paid emails, unless they rectify the email problem.
  • Tax Information Required – U.S. tax law requires that Multiple Stream collect tax-related information from all Multiple Stream Affiliates. All affiliates US residents And Non US residents must fill out the appropriate fields in the tax form to receive affiliate commission. Non US residents can leave the TIN field blank.
  • Payment Conditions – Commissions will only be paid by Paypal services. Commissions are paid automatically on monthly basis when members reach the minimum of $25.00. Any account that has reached the minimum payout of $25.00 or more will be zeroed out on the 1st of every month, and commissions will be paid out between 15th and 25th of the following month (NET45 days). Commissions earned that are less than minimum required will be carried over into the next month. The signup bonus of $5 will only be paid to members when member’s total commissions reaches $25. Commissions will not be sent if the Tax information is not filled out or if the tax information is not correct.
  • Inactive Accounts Suspension – Any account inactive (without reading emails) for a period of 6 months or more will be put to inactive status from the system. If a member is inactive for 6 months or more, there will no credits applied to the member from their referrals, for viewing ads, until the member re-activates his/her account. Any account that has been dormant or inactive for a period of 9 months or more will be deleted. These include any and all accounts that has not been logged in or read an email from the time of signup.

Hits4pay Review – Summary:

Hits4Pay has been around for over 13 years. It is one of the oldest sites of its kind out there, but certainly not the best one. The site again is experiencing payout issues, they are not paying on time, there are delays of 45 days. Same thing happened 2 years ago. Shortly after I have moved Hits4Pay to the Watch list, I received my pending payment, however I would recommend to use caution with Hits4Pay. I’ll closely monitor Hit4Pay in the following period, and will see if they pay on time in the following period.

  1. Hits4pay may in fact now be a total scam. I was told I would be paid on the 15th of March which is 45 days from the clear out of Feb.1st.

    Sent of an email and here it is the 25th of March and still not paid nor is there any support or reply from the admin. Seems I am being ignored.

    Beware nowadays about Hits4pay as you may not get paid.

  2. Have been a member at Hits4Pay for almost 10 years now, cashout average over that time has been 3 per year. TIPS: Check your interest preferences regularly and select as many as allowed keeping them relevant to popular interests. Login everyday to check for ads, as the alerts for new emails to read are often not sent out. Hope that helps 🙂

  3. Hits4pay is a scam. I was receiving at least 2 paid e-mails a day until I reached 24 dollars and now I do not receive any. I change my interest categories daily and still nothing. They have obviously cut me off 1 dollar short of the payment threshold so they do not have to pay. I would stay away from this site. I have contacted them several times and they will not respond.

  4. idklol

    I’ve been stuck just short of payout on both Hits4Pay and DealsNCash for months.

    Before I was getting a 10+ ads a day on each site. Then boom, zero. On Hits4Pay I also had a few active referrals. I was earning referral income regularly up to that point too, and it mysteriously stopped when the ads stopped.

    Hits4Pay/DealsNCash/Multiple Stream Media is just a scam at this point.

  5. I reached $24.84 the FALL of 2015 (10/15/15 to be exact) and all of a sudden the ads stopped. I have received TWO paid emails since May 20, 2016 and May 21, 2016 so now my balance is $24.88, $.12 cents from my first payout and here we are 9/08/2016 and no paid ads coming. I contacted them asking if my account was on hold because I was close to payout and of course they said “nah, this just the way it works sometimes based on your profile and preferences blah, blah, blah”. The ads continue to flow at an okay rate at DealsNCash (another Abe Cherian Multiple Stream Media “property” but they have stopped at hits4pay so it almost seems like they are phasing out Hits4Pay. It would be nice possibly if I could at least get some advertising for this balance since at this rate it could be another 3 years before I hit $25.00. NOT cool.

    • Update, 1 paid email since the 9/9/16 entry on 9/20 – by the time I logged in to take credit it was gone (clicked out I assume). That is three $.02 cent paid emails since 5/20/16. This program may not be entirely dead, but certainly Abe Cherian at Multiple Stream Media.com isn’t selling enough advertising for it to make it viable frankly. I’ve progressed $.04 cents in 1 year as of 10/15/16 (this Sunday). Per my prior calculation only 3 more years for another $.12 cents and cash out. 🙂

  7. Administrator, Hits4Pay no improvement

    • PTCCentral

      Will see by the end of this month, my account balance was cleared on January 3rd, and as per their terms the payment will be sent between Feb 15 and Feb 25. Will let you know what happens, hopefully they got back on track with payments and there will be no more delays. We’ll see.

  8. Cheng Liang

    I can’t open this site recently. Have they changed their domain name?

    • PTCCentral

      No, it’s still the same domain. It is working fine for me here, however it doesn’t load in China. I just checked the website availability for few locations in China and it says Host unavailable. You can see the results here: http://www.site24x7.com/public/t/results-1415194082927.html

      Either the domain is blocked in China or Hits4Pay no longer accept traffic from China. I am going to contact them regarding this and I’ll get back to you as soon as they respond to my email.

    I have been a member for only about a month and a half. I, like a lot of other people who have left comments here wasn’t getting any more than one or two emails a day. Then I went back into the interests section and changed all of “my interests” to things I think they will have a lot of adds for and now I pretty much get 10 – 15 per day about 90% of the time and Between 3 – 9 the other 10% of the time. Rare so far to go without any… Good luck everyone..

  13. Bad news, I never trusted this site that much!

  15. Salman

    can we rent referals on this website ??? if so what’s the fare per month

    • No, they don’t offer rented referrals. They have Affiliate Builder Program. By subscribing to the ABP ($5.99/month), your referral link will be placed on their rotation software, which will rotate referral links from subscribers when the site receive traffic from their advertising campaigns, search engine traffic etc.

      As a subscriber to their AFB, you should receive traffic and signups directly to your Hits4Pay referral link. But it has been reported on eMoneyspace that the Affiliate Builder Program is no longer effective. Personally I have never used the ABP so I can’t say whether it’s worth the price.

  16. pagigzters

    This site is really great. 5$ sign up bonus plus every ad is worth 0.02$ with a 2 level referral program. Really a great site to recommend. Just be honest with the information you will give and you’ll be worry free with this site. I will be very thankful if you’ll join under my link http://hits4pay.com/members/index.cgi?pagigzters

  17. A little tip for who are willing to sign up with this program: In order to get your account approved, you must submit accurate account information. So, you must submit a real name and address.
