Update: Openbux is no longer online. Initially the site was placed on our Not Recommended list and now it has been moved to the Failed sites list.


Review History (Old info):

OpenBux is paid to click site which has been online for over a year, and they were paying only for the first 2-3 months after launch. Since then, they have stopped paying. The site is still online but it’s pretty much a ghost site which is abandoned by the owner. Don’t expect getting paid by Openbux.

Reasons why you should avoid using Openbux.com:

Stopped Paying – Openbux stopped paying long time ago. No new payments to users since months.

A Failed Bux site – Openbux is good example why bux sites fail to stand the test of time. High click rates, self-sponsored advertisements and not enough advertisers will cause the bux program to collapse. The “bux” model has proven to be unsustainable. Bux site heavily relies on selling memberships or referrals to pay members, and in most cases the main advertiser is the admin himself.

Non-responsive support – There are complaints on their forum that the site does not answer to support tickets. Which is another bad sign. You can not rely on a site that does not take proper actions to resolve members issues and problems.

Abandonment – Openbux has been abandoned by its owner. There is no activity from the admin or other staff members on the forum for months. You can see many posts on the forum where members complain about non-payment and spam messages which tells us that there is no one left to manage the site.

Complaints and negative feedback – If you visit their forum, you will notice that it is full of complaints for pending payouts, unanswered support tickets and spam.

General conclusion:

Openbux was a non-paying abandoned PTC site. As of now, Openbux is no longer online. It was closed down without paying its members. We have moved this site to the Failed sites list. It will be remembered as one of the many scams out there.
