Default cash fiesta

i registered at cashfiesta.com (you install a program that gives you credits for displaying banner ads while you're on the net...)and they are paying 1 dollar to each visitor that register

Does anyone know this company, are they serious, does they pay?

To be honest, I'm not sure that there are any good pay-to-surf companies still afloat (and those that liquidated obviously weren't all that fabulous either).

Most adopted a flawed business model and the space hasn't recovered. It may do once the race for toolbar and desktop real estate heats up, but for now CashFiesta and its ilk are just wasting your time.

From everything I've heard, Cashfiesta is a bad company. Don't waste your time with them.

As far as I know, the only current paying "Paid to Surf" company is Degoo.com. But last I checked, they pay around $0.02 per hour. So unless you have LOTS of referrals or something it's probably not worth it. I think coins2cash.com is still around as well (it was/is run by a geekVillage member I think) but it probably has about the same pay rate per hour.

Forget "Paid to Surf". There still is money in "Paid to Read Email". Just be careful about which programs you select. There are a few listed on my potofgold site below; Personally, I recommend AYS. They pay $0.05 (five cents) per email (some other places pay as low as $0.0025 per email!!) and I have been paid by them 3 times now. Keep in mind that: They are strict about the rules; try anything funny any you'll be cancelled ... and their min payout is $50, and after you request payout it will take 1-3 months to get your payment.

thanks for your help
i will keep a few banners on my site to see if it worth it with referrals if they pay 1 usd i will soon know it

when speaking about "Paid to Read Email" emails, does they accept non US subscribers ? and what do you mean by ''anything funny'' do you mean having multiple emails etc...

Most Get Paid to Read Email programs accept members from any country. Some may have specific exceptions so make sure you read the terms/FAQs for each program.

By "anything funny" I mean anything against a programs terms. Obvious things such as having multiple accounts, clicking links more than once, etc. Also many programs allow only one account per household and do not allow you to use more than one computer / internet account to do your clicking. (So don't use other peoples computers to do your clicking.)

I would not bother with CashFiesta.

I used them and I never reached my min payout. I spent weeks and weeks with their ads showing, but still didn't reach their payout.

I wouldn't be surprised that if when you install their Ad Banner on your computer, they are probably also installing spyware onto your computer.

If you want to earn some easy money, then I would try ppc search engines.

It is very, very easy to reach your minimum payout. Some even pays you without a minimum payout.

Most pay per click search engines listed within our PPC Search Engines Directory pays their affiliates 60% - 90% of their bid amount, pays monthly or sooner and also pays by PayPal, E-gold, MoneyBookers, etc.

Hope this helps you!
