I thought I had to post something quick for you viewers out there who happen to blog, who either get paid to do so or are at least inquiring information into companies who actually pay you for your services. Well, I myself have ran into a problem with the latest scam of a company Paying Post or Blog Advertising Store– as their reffered to now. They are using blogger’s time and energy along with their platforms (websites) to spread the word about advertiser’s and their products and in return they aren’t paying.
They have a bs policy that consist of a payout threshold of $100, once you reach that threshold you are paid on the 1st of the month through your Paypal account (given that you’ve hit the mark before the 1st of the month). Well, as I found out this isn’t the case in fact this is far from the case, these guys are simply not paying. Here it is the 12th of the month and I still haven’t received the money they owe me (which is $158).
Something told me to just Google the company and see what comes up, sure enough bad publicity was all over the search results. I went to this one forum that had every single person that commented basically state to others that they had a payout problem and that the company doesn’t respond when you contact them– you can find the forum here with my comment as well.
So in a nut shell, if you are a blogger like myself and actually inquire some knowledge on making money doing this, you must stay cognitive to sham companies like this so you won’t waste your time and energy like I have unfortunately. Soon, I will release a post listing all the official paid to blog websites that at least I have dealt with.
