You Might Like this PTC
Update May 21: There are few issues at Silverclix 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 Silverclix and all other sites from the Golden Group. Silverclix 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 Silverclix in the comment section below. They can censor you on their forum, but surely they can not censor you here.
Update May 1: The co-admin Nikolay Kosturkov sold his part of Silverclix to the other admin Edin Ikanovic. Now Silverclix merged with the Zigma network (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. New payments will be processed within 7 days. Pending payment requests placed before the merger might be delayed a bit. We’ll see for how long. Hopefully pending payments will be cleared out in a timely manner.
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 Silverclix, 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 is using their Paypal account. We’ll see if Paypal gives them any additional troubles in future.
New Site – From our experience, many new PTC sites fail to stand the test of time. Since we can’t predict which sites could possibly turn into long lasting successful programs, we do not recommend buying memberships and investing in new sites (under a year old). In our opinion, it would be better to wait some time until a new site proves to be stable and credible, rather than investing in the early phase and risk to lose your investment if the site stops paying. However, the choice is yours and it is up to you to make your own decisions. But be sure to test a new site if you plan to invest. It is best to do your research to make sure it is a legitimate opportunity. If you decide to invest in a new PTC, never invest more than you can afford to lose. So decide carefully.
A Bux site – Silverclix 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 money.
