It’s no secret that when I first came online to earn I took on just about any mindless, boring task to succeed. After all, these tasks were legit and they were paying.
Thankfully, these days my internet marketing training has given me a basis to earn as I write about my passions in life – no more mini tasks for me!
In this ZoomBucks review I will be looking at a reasonably new player on the internet earning block ( well I’d never heard of them before a fortnight ago! ).
But is it as effective as these two monster online players?
More About Zoombucks
As I mentioned above, ZoomBucks is based on a pretty standard GPT ( Get Paid To ) platform. From what I can gather it is based in the pretty safe country of Canada ( Vancouver ).
You don’t have to pay a penny to join up with this lot – it offers a totally free membership. You do however, have to be over the age of 13 to earn with them legally.
The site is filled up with members from the UK, the US, Canada and Australia ( the English speaking ‘big players’ ). It also excepts members from certain European countries as well.
For some reason, many of these GTP newcomers opt to pay you in points – ZoomBucks is no different ( unfortunately! ).
I know the reason behind this – they actually end up rewarding you less when they convert the points into the cash equivalents ( nothing wrong with this – it’s good business on their behalf! ).
In the case of ZoomBucks – one point equals one cent.
Not a bad exchange rate really when you compare this to other point-based websites out there!
These points are earned by carrying out one ( or all ) of the following tasks:
- Completing paid or free offers
- Taking part in various online surveys
- Sitting through rather tedious video adverts and offers
- Simply listening to new music
- Sharing pieces of content on your social networks
- Completing mini tasks
- Playing online games
There are also a few competitions thrown in there that you can take part in a few times a day ( search through their search engine, participating in contests etc etc ).
The earnings are pretty low but you do have the choice of upgrading your account to premium. This will entitle you to earn 90% more from your actions when compared to the standard members.
If you fancy trying your hand at a bit of affiliate marketing you can also refer new members to the site and make a commission off their earnings!
ZoomBucks pays you through the medium of gift cards, Paypal or check.
The Downside to ZoomBucks
- Earning ‘decent’ money on these types of sites takes up a lot of your time. You quite literally have to be sitting in front of the PC for at least 10 hours a day ( but it is LEGIT money! )
- Sometimes the points that you have earned need to be checked out for fraudulent reasons before showing up in your account – this tends to piss me off a little bit. If I’ve completed the task I want to see my points total ASAP to make sure I’m on the right track.
- As with all my reviews I had to do a search online to find out what other members were saying – this ALWAYS uncovers a handful of complaints. In this case it was a few members complaining about their accounts being closed for no reason. Whether or not these were legit complaints is anyone’s guess ( they could quite simply have been caught cheating! ).
So, the big bad question that needs to be answered yet again – is ZoomBucks scam or is it legit?
Well you could probably tell from the tone of this review that ZoomBucks is very much a legit online opportunity ( in my opinion at least! ).
What you have to remember is that you are going to have to work REAL hard on these GPT sites to see any sort of decent income. Many are able to do just that…but most are not!
The work is tedious – and I mean tedious! But, it is legit.
But if you are a student looking to make a little extra or anyone that has access to the internet, this could be a great option for you!
