Howdy, welcome to my review!
The good news is that I’ve looked into the money-making opportunity so I can give you the true facts and my own honest opinions within this blog post.
Name: Paid2YouTube (P2Y).
Owner: Nobody knows.
My Score: 2/10.
But before I give you the lowdown…
Get the #1 way to make money online – A platform which gives you all the resources you need for transforming your hobby/passion into a successful Affiliate Marketing Biz.
What’s Paid2YouTube All About, Huh?
‘P2Y’ is basically a ‘GPT’ (Get Paid To) site, but this one’s a little different because it only revolves around YouTube tasks like watching and rating videos, commenting, and subscribing to various channels.
But you need to have a Google/YouTube account set up before you can participate in the tasks.
While these types of programs are fun to get involved in for killing a little time and earning pocket change during the process, you’ll never be able to quit your job and live a luxurious lifestyle doing easy “tasks” on the web.
But if your intention is to only make a few bucks here n’ there, then fair enough.
How Paid2YouTube Works to Put Dollars in Your Account
Let’s see how you can make some spare cash with the ‘GPT’ site…
#1: Surf Videos
For each video you view, you’ll get $0.001 – $0.005.
Except the number of videos are extremely limited.
When I joined today, there were only 2 videos available but I only got 1 to watch for a measly $0.05!
WOW, a whole 5 cents! How lucky am I?
#2: Post Comments
For every comment you post (1 per video), you receive $0.10.
But again, comments are limited.
Apparently, there was 1 comment available for me to make (also shown in the screenshot above).
But what had me in stitches was the fact that “0” video comments were available.
Tell me, do my eyes deceive me or are there really ZERO comments to earn from?
#3: Subscriber Opportunities
When you subscribe to YouTube channels, you’re paid $0.15 per subscription.
But hey, guess what?…
YUP, I had “0” available!
#4: Video Ratings
Every time you a give a video a Thumb’s Up, you get rewarded $0.01.
And you know exactly what’s coming next…
For the third time, not a chance in hell to make one single cent!
#5: Purchase Referrals
In addition to the tasks, you can purchase referral packages in order to beef up your earnings from other folks efforts:
- 5 ‘P2Y’ members = $8.77
- 35 members = $52.65
- 100 members = $125.44
- 500 members = $502.20
But there’s one slight problem…
Since the number of tasks varies from 0 to 1 (LOL), how long do you reckon it will take to recoup those package costs, huh? Months, even Years?
In fact, with “extremely limited” tasks, how many of those referrals will actually stick around? Hmm…
And as a YouTuber yourself, you can advertise your videos on ‘P2Y’ for the costs shown:
However, in the bad shape that the program’s currently in, I would assume that many members have dropped like flies which means minimal interaction thus little to no profits.
So, is it really worth forking out cash for referrals and advertising with ‘P2Y’?
To be quite honest, the opportunity comes across as a sack of sh*t!
Why waste your time with it?…
What Level of Help is Available?
When it comes to getting a helping hand with something on your mind, you can view the FAQ page or send a support ticket to the team from inside your members’ area.
But how quickly you’ll get a response or if you’ll even get one at all from somebody on the other end is unclear – especially when you haven’t a clue on who is even behind the program.
Are Proof of Payments Even Genuine?
At the bottom of the screen, there’s a “Payment Proofs” tab showing you a list of over 5,000 payments to members over the years.
But since it’s difficult to tell whether the income proof screenshots are the real deal or as fake as a three dollar bill, I would tread with caution.
Additionally, November 2017 was the last time a proof of payment was posted which also makes the program questionable.
Since tasks are limited, I don’t see many folks getting paid throughout 2018 and onwards.
PROS vs CONS of ‘P2Y’
- It’s free to participate
- Get paid via Paypal
- A basic level of support is offered
- Tasks are EXTREMELY limited
- To reach the minimum $10 threshold may take months LOL
- Purchasing referrals and advertising is a waste of time & money
Final Thoughts: Is Paid2YouTube a Scam?…
I don’t think ‘P2Y’ is a flat out scam. But I would definitely brand it as a “borderline scam” because the program seems as dead as a dodo. It’s almost impossible to get paid.
Whether it’s because the folks behind it purposely hold on to advertisers cash and don’t wanna pay members or there’s no money in the pot and the opportunity has dried up, nobody really knows the truth.
But one thing’s for certain, if you choose to buy referrals and/or advertising for your own YouTube videos, don’t expect profits anytime soon.
Would I recommend ‘P2Y’?
HELL NO, are you kidding me!?
If you’re after an online money-maker that actually “works” and gives you the opportunity to earn a full-time income as an Affiliate Marketer…
