ClixSense removes PayPal as payment option

The popular online rewards website ClixSense has removed PayPal as a payment option for its users due to new policy changes at PayPal. ClixSense is a website where members get paid for viewing ads, answering surveys, or viewing websites and videos posted by advertisers. ClixSense informed its users of the change in a message posted on the company's website Wednesday.

“Members, this announcement comes with a very heavy heart," said Jim Garpo, owner of ClixSense. "On Monday, Paypal placed a hold on our account. They advised me that due to new policy changes the ClixSense business model was now in violation of their user agreement and we would have to stop processing all payments. We attribute this change to the large amount of fly by night PTC, HYIPs, traffic exchanges etc that have made this industry look bad for those that actually run a legitimate business.

“I have had several conference calls with Paypal over the last few days trying to convince them that we've posed no risk for the last seven years since we've introduced them, and even our account rep agrees, but in their eyes it did not matter. On Tuesday afternoon, I was told I would get a definitive answer either last night or this morning if we would be able to continue with them for at least mass pay cashouts. I received the call this morning that they are not allowing us to process with them any more. If you haven't noticed, the option to pay by Paypal has been removed from the site.

“While this is definitely a set back, it certainly does not mean you will not get paid. I highly suggest that if you are currently using Paypal to switch to Payoneer. They can send your funds directly to your bank account or to their debit card. We also suggest you try Tango Card or Paytoo as they have many different options for you too.

“I have a call later today with Skrill to try and get this account setup ASAP and I am doing everything I can to bring Payza back as well.

“We know this is a major inconvenience but as the old saying goes, what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger. ClixSense will continue to move forward and we will do our best to provide you with the great service that you've come to know.”


Editor's note: I earned a total $159.40 from ClixSense in 2016.
