Site moved to the Not Recommended List. Site is no longer paying and the forum is full of complaints. Support tickets are no longer replied to, and the Admin only comes to the forum to help people on how to deposit/invest money. Their partner site – GladBux is also playing the old waiting game, asking people to close disputes and that payments will be enabled “soon”. Well its over a month and its still not “soon” enough for them.
So I can no longer recommend both these sites – Boostfin.com & GladBux.com
If you have made purchases and haven’t received the service or recovered your money, I would recommend filing disputes with the respective payment processors before its too late.


See some screenshots from their forum below. Screen-shots were taken today (February 2, 2014).

Last payment was made on December 27, 2013.

BoostFin is a site, owned and operated by a registered company – BoostFin Ltd., based in Hong Kong.
The site has a custom built script, although you might find it a little difficult to find your way as navigating through their site is completely unique. Some terms they use are a little different which have become the norm in the PTC industry. But, with time you’ll get used to it.


Below are the Pros and Cons of the site.

thumbsup

  • Forum – Their forum can found here – www.boostfin.com/forum/

    Forums are excellent for interaction between members and the staff. Members can post suggestions, payments proof and report bugs. Also small complaints can be solved which reduces the workload of the staff of replying to Support tickets.

  • No referral limit – There is no limit to the number of people you can refer to the site which is great for those who are good at promoting.
  • Fixed cashout limit – The cashout mark is fixed at $5 for Standard members (lower for upgraded members) and does not increase after each cashout.
    *Cashouts through Bank Wire are $50 due to the fees involved.
  • Registered Company – The site is owned and operated by a registered company – BoostFin Ltd., based in Hong Kong.
    Don’t treat this as any kind of insurance because there have been numerous failed/scam sites which were registered companies. Being a registered company just shows that the owner might be serious about the project.
  • Custom Script – As mentioned at the start, the site has a custom built script. Its rare now-a-days to see custom made scripts considering every new PTC site uses pre-made scripts to make their job easier and reduce initial costs involved.
    However, a custom script is not an insurance. Don’t assume that the site will be successful just because it has a unique script.

  • Daily Forced Activity – You need to click your ads daily if you wish to earn from your referrals.
    “You must view at least 4 advertisements each day to continue to earn from your referrals the next day.”
  • Must post payment proof on the forum – Members are required to post payment proofs on the forum failing which they might not get paid.
  • “Bux” Site – You cannot ignore the fact that they show self-sponsored ads daily. Self-sponsored ads are not sustainable in the long run and builds up debt over time. So “bux” sites depend on upgrades and rentals to keep the cash flow to pay their members.
    Having said that, owners have no choice but to start off by showing self-sponsored ads.
    Lets hope that over time the site gains advertisers and number of self-sponsored ads reduce.
  • Privacy – You are required to provide your details like full name, phone number. The owner keeps his Who Is info private, so users too should have their right to privacy.
  • No longer paying & abandoned – Site is no longer paying, not replying to support tickets nor addressing members’ concerns on their forum. The Admin only comes to the forum to help people on how to deposit/invest money.

  • Changelog
    & Updates
  • You need to view at least one advertisement before you can use their Forum.
  • Inactivity
    ● If an account is left inactive for more than 45 days, it will be temporarily suspended. If account inactivity exceeds 90 days, it will be permanently suspended.
    ● If a user does not complete final steps of registration within 72 hours of signup then the user account will be permanently suspended. The user can then register once again.
  • Payment Rules
    ● All payments will be made via Payza, PayPal, OKPAY, LibertyReserve, and Bank Wire. You are allowed to withdraw only through the processor with which you have made any purchases. If no purchases are made by you then you can withdraw unlimited through any of the processors. The max you can withdraw to other processors would be equal to the amount you have invested with them. In case of equal purchases between two or more processors, you can withdraw unlimited to all of them.

    ● All payments/withdrawals are processed manually after passing security measures and fraud screening. This process can take up to 1 week. In case of any delay due to heavy work load, the request shall be processed before 30 calendar days.

    ● After requesting a payment, you must wait 7 days before requesting another.

  • Cashout Fees
    ● PayPal & Payza : 3%
    ● OkPay : 5%
    ● Bank Wire : $20
  • You cannot use an unverified PayPal or Payza account for making any purchases on BoostFin. For any other payment processor, there is no such requirement.
    For cashouts, you can withdraw to an unverified account.
  • In order to make purchases over $100, you will have to verify your phone number. For verification, you are sent a 4 digit code by call/SMS which you will need to enter on their site.
  • SURVEYS – Do not confuse surveys on BoostFin with your typical GPT surveys. Surveys on BoostFin are actually Paid-to-sign up (PTSU) offers.

    From their FAQ,

    What are Surveys?
    We have redefined Surveys. Really, we have! With our in-house designed Survey Ads, advertisers can run their Paid to Signup offers with a feedback from the user. The advertiser can ask whether his site is good or not?, suggestions, etc. You can avail the best of both the worlds – Surveys and Paid to Signup offers.

  • Offer Points
    You earn offer points when you complete any offer from their offer wall(s). These points can be converted to cash, or you can purchase an upgrade. For any such request, please open a support ticket.
    1 Offer Point = $0.01 USD

  • February 2, 2014 : Site moved to the Not Recommended List. Site is no longer paying and the forum is full of complaints. Support tickets are no longer replied to, and the Admin only comes to the forum to help people on how to deposit/invest money. Their partner site – GladBux is also playing the old waiting game, asking people to close disputes and that payments will be enabled “soon”. Well its over a month and its still not “soon” enough for them.
    So I can no longer recommend both these sites – Boostfin.com & GladBux.com
    If you have made purchases and haven’t received the service or recovered your money, I would recommend filing disputes with the respective payment processors before its too late.
  • December 21, 2013 : Members are now required to post payment proofs on the forum failing which they might not get paid.
  • November 19, 2013 : BoostFin has been acquired partially by GladBux.com (Glad Media). Its seems more like a partnership so we’ll have to see how things pan out. So far they are making payments, so they’ll remain on the Legit List.
    You can read the announcement on the forums of both sites : [here] & [here]

Conclusion : BoostFin has the same old “bux” fail story. I can no longer them nor their partner site – GladBux.com If you have made purchases and haven’t received the service or recovered your money, I would recommend filing disputes with the respective payment processors before its too late.
