Neobux Review – Description:
Neobux is a Paid to Click advertising service that connects advertisers and potential customers from around the world. It is over 7 years old and paying PTC site, created on March 25, 2008 and it is the biggest paid to click service and one of the most successful. Although it started as a pure bux program, changes and additions were implemented to the business model through the years. Today, Neobux is well managed internet advertising company, a mixture between Real PTC, GPT and Bux site, and one of the leaders in the PTC industry. We have placed Neobux on our Established PTC Sites list.
Things we do like about Neobux.com:
Well Managed – Neobux has been online for over 7 years. For a PTC site, it is very important how long it has been online and paying. Many programs will pay their users at the beginning, but only few are doing it successfully for years. No doubt, Neobux is professionally managed advertising service. They have a large base of advertisers that display their advertisements to potential customers.
Paying – Neobux is paying its members instantly without any issues. There are a lot of payment proofs on their forum and around the web. On the links below you can find payment proofs from other Neobux members:

Instant payments – Your payment will be send within seconds after request. Great option, no need to check your payment processor account every day to see if you have received your payment.
Free Worldwide Service – Members can make money without having to invest any money to get started. There are no any registration restrictions, individuals from all over the world are allowed to join the site and earn with it.
Affiliate System (Increasing DR limits) – Before referring new members to Neobux, make sure that you have clicked at least 100 ads and that you have been registered for at least 15 days. After you meet the conditions, you can have direct referrals. The direct referral limit is set to 30, but the older member you are, the more referrals you may have. You will earn commissions from your direct referrals PTC clicks, completed mini jobs and sales commissions (except advertisements purchases).
Wide Range of Earning Features – NeoBux offers various earning methods to choose from. Users can earn money in numerous ways like viewing ads, completing Micro Jobs, completing Offers, watching videos and playing the Ad Prize game. There are few Offer Walls available: Matomy, Payment Wall, Peanut Labs, Super Rewards and Token Ads.
Forum – They have a forum. In our opinion, a PTC 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:
Complaints about the Rented Referral System – We have found complaints about the Neobux rented referrals system. It has been reported by members that they find it quite difficult to make profit from renting referrals. Generally we don’t recommend renting on any PTC site, due to the reason that 99% of the PTC sites out there will offer you bots instead of real human referrals with a purpose to control your RR performance. We don’t recommend renting referrals as we believe it’s not worth the gamble, but that’s something you should decide for yourself.
Strict Forum Rules – Their forum is well known for being moderated to tight rules when it comes down to specific “sensitive” topics. There are certain issues where they don’t tolerate opposing views. For instance, any expressed doubts about rented referrals behavior most likely will result in forum ban or even account suspension. So be sure to read and understand their TOS 1.6 and 1.7 before posting on their forum.
Hybrid Bux site – Even though changes and additions were implemented to their original model, Neobux can be still categorized as a hybrid bux site. Bux sites usually relies on selling expensive upgrades or renting out referrals to pay members and they are showing self-sponsored ads. Generally, the “bux” model is an unsustainable business model (details here), however Neobux proves an exception here mostly due to their big base of actual advertisers and the managerial skills of the Neobux admin. Which is why they are one of the leaders in the PTC insdustry. It should be noted that Neobux managed to operate as a pure Bux sites for 3 years, and they had to change in order to sustain (decreased the self-sponsored ads for standard members from $0.01 to $0.001). Nowadays NeoBux is a hybrid between a Bux, Real PTC and GPT.
Takes a Long Time to Reach Payout – Despite the fact that there are many ads available to click, if you are member without direct referrals Neobux may be a slow earner, especially if you do not have the time to click all of the ads or if you do not visit the site multiple times per day to click the new ads which are added throughout the day. So it may take long time to earn sufficient amount for payout. Note that Neobux have stepped cash out system in place, which means after the first minimum cash out of $2.00, this amount will increase by $1.00 for each cash out until it reaches a fixed minimum amount of $10.00.

Neobux Review – Final Thoughts:
Neobux is a PTC site that has been online for more than 7 years and is paying without any issues. It is one of the most successful paid to click programs. However, this doesn’t necessarily means that Neobux will be the right site for you. There is no assurance that you will make a lot money using this program. I would recommend to join as a free member and see how the site works for you. Try different earning strategies until you find the one that is most suitable for you. If you are considering to upgrade, search for other people experiences/strategies before doing so. I wouldn’t recommend to upgrade if you don’t have a handful of active direct referrals. Don’t rely only on rented referrals. But the choice is yours and it’s up to you to make your own decisions.
