Something Interesting





A friend just pointed this site out to me tonight. Paybox is apparently an up and coming online payment processing company, much like the popular PayPal. Right now they have a special where new users who sign up are labeled as Early Birds. By taking surveys and giving feedback, you earn money in an online account on a daily basis before the full version of this service is launched. Users can also earn money by referring their friends at a rate of five dollars per referral. From what I was told, you can't cash the money in, but once PayBox is launched, you'll be able to use it for goods through a number of online stores, including eBay which I use very frequently.

There are a few rules. You must take at least one survey per week, and you must subscribe to them either through e-mail, or through a number of available social networking sites including Facebook and Twitter.

All in all it sounds like an interesting experiment to try out, and I'd advise anyone who's curious to go ahead and sign up!

    I don't actually know, but I'm hoping it'll be at least a month or two. They do have jobs listed for programmers so maybe they still have a lot of work left before they put this thing up. Cross your fingers!

  6. I'm usually skeptical with this stuff, but it never hurts to try.

  7. i usually dont really trust sites like this, but if they've teamed up with ebay and recommended by you, i might give them a go. I could use a couple of dollars too

  10. mmm I remember a similar deal a few years back, can't remember whatever happened to the company of the account I had. Will be interesting to see how this turns outs.

  12. let me know if you make any money

  13. Hopefully it's something that can knock paypal back into line - they've been enjoying a pretty strong monopoly on online payment options..

  14. not to be a downer but i wouldn't get your hopes up on this. i have a business degree and this kind of thing just screams marketing gimmick. no starter company has this kind of cash to give away, or equivalent credit to established affiliates (ebay, for example). i think either the company won't get off the ground and nothing will happen or when it 'opens' your credit will be redeemable at other starter businesses with very little to offer you.

    but i realise you're not investing much time, it's just....highly unlikely anything good will appear from it.

  22. I have to say I'm skeptical of their claim.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  32. I totally support this idea, I think this will replace paypal one day and I sure fucking hate paypal, every day I drive 101 north and I see paypal hq, makes me hate them so much, they took about 100 bucks from me :(

    ReplyDelete
  33. Was the guys from twitter setting up something like this?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I remain skeptical but thank you for the heads up :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. These kinds of things are the future of the internet. Monetizing surfing is totally the way to go.

  40. Hmmm... Sponsorship deal? They SHOULD pay you to sponsor for them =D

    ReplyDelete
  41. I shall look into it.
    Anything new, i usually wait a bit, but maybe jumping on this early will really be beneficial.

    ReplyDelete
  42. amazing :) xD Actually I set up an account :)

    I have 35 dollars from it now! Hopefully they let us transfer it to paypal or use it on ebay or amazon :) I'd love to use it with any 3 of those services!

    ReplyDelete
  43. hmm this is interesting.. might try it out

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'd like to first see some payment proofs ;)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yeah, what James T said here. How will they be able all those people who signed up for the money?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hm, I'll have to check this out. Although, paypal is entangled with many other big companies so I think they might have a hard time surviving.

    ReplyDelete
