    As long as they didn't fry it in mayo, because honestly, who does that?

    Yup.. lots of red flags here - starting with my guess is probably the only people coming to the site will be other contributors. Second, your pretty much dependent on them to determine what gets paid and what doesn't, you could get 50 or 60 views and they might claim they were all 4 seconds or less and give you nothing. You have no way of verifying how long a view was actually for, nor does it sound like you get anything if they click through on the ad - something for which I'm sure the site will generate extra revenue.

    And of course once folks find out what they are supposed to be getting paid for they'll find a way to cheat, having bots open the site and click on their stuff, leave it open, etc - so anyone that doesn't is going to wind up being on the very low end of the totem pole for payments. Eventually the system will collapse and the site will stop offering payments all together.

    Take a look at ShareCG as an example of this business model - they pretty much started out with exactly the same idea for 3d content, worked very briefly but fell apart pretty quickly.

    Sounds like this app Tsu that I tried for a few weeks. Similar to FB or IG, but they pay you a small % for views on your content. I did quite well as far as views/shares/comments/etc., after about a month, I made $1.

    183 eyeball icons so far, as of Monday night 7:14 PM west coast time...

    Nice photo. Can you tell us what the base pay rate is? Do you get one-fourth of one US cent per view, or is it more, or less than that?

    I realise that this is old news but in case anyone is still following.. Money is earned from paid views, that's paid views and not just views. Someone will need to view your picture, click on it to expand to full size and keep it open for 5 seconds to register as a paid view. Subscribers need to have at least $25 in their account before they can withdraw payments.
    You will need to get 15,625 paid views to earn $25 assuming that the rate is still at $0.0016 per paid view. With very simple maths you can add the total number of paid views you have and divide the figure by the total number of photos you have posted to find your own average paid view per photo. You can then work out how many photos you will need to post to earn £20.07 at your current average.
    I've been using clickasnap for a while and in my case this would be 3,226 photos or just over 2 years if I uploaded 4 photos per day.

    Your post was over a year ago. I just saw an ad for this service and came here wondering if it was legit. They now state they pay 0.014 cents per view, so apparently have changed their approach since this thread was new.

    I just clicked your photo and made sure I stayed 5 seconds (which later in this thread said was a minimum to get paid) :)

    So... after a year, have you actually made any money from this experiment? I am currently on 9 microstock agencies, and get a couple hundred $ per month from them. Wondering if I should upload to here also. (FWIW, my stock portfolio is just shy of 1700 images)

    Guilt trip indeed! It didn't work on me. I use an ad blocker and didn't even bother to visit the site.
