NeoBux is a free worldwide service available in a multi-language environment. It is the most successful Paid-to-click site ever and its name is synonymous with the term “PTC”. In the past 6 years, nearly all sites have tried to copy it but not a single one could replicate its success or even come close to it.

NeoBux offered 4 guaranteed 1₵ ads and 50% referral earnings for Standard members for close to 3 years. Back in March, 2011 they made a radical overhaul and reduced click rates as well as referral earnings for Standard members which upset nearly everyone. But, time has proved it that it was a right decision. It has virtually turned the site from a “bux” site with self-sponsored ads into a Real PTC, focusing more on advertisers.

We interviewed Fernando (the Admin of NeoBux) in August, 2011 and you can read it here. The interview will give you many answers as to why the changes were made and what the long term goals of NeoBux are.


 

Below are the Pros and Cons of the site.

 

  • An Established Site – The site has been online for over 6 years which is a great achievement for any PTC site.
  • Paying on time – The site is currently paying all its members instantly and payments can be found across the web.

    Few places where you can find payment proofs are listed below.
    http://www.neobux.com/forum/?/6/
    http://ptc-investigation.com/neobux.aspx
    http://emoneyspace.com

  • Instant Payments – You receive your payments within seconds after you request it. Great isn’t it?
  • Increasing Referral Limit – Although you start off with a Direct Referral limit of 30 (that too after you have been a member for at least 15 days and have clicked at least 100 clicks), the limit increases linearly. See the image below for a full explanation.


    TOS 3.10 – Users can only have direct referrals after being a member for at least 15 days and having at least 100 clicks. Any attempts to get them before that will fail.

  • Multiple Languages – NeoBux is a free worldwide service available in a multi-language environment. This feature is very useful for people from countries where English is not the first language.
    NeoBux is currently available in the following languages – English, Portuguese, Spanish, French, German, Swedish, Greek, Finish and Indonesian.
  • Forum – NeoBux has a very active forum and you can find it here – http://www.neobux.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.
  • Hourly Draws – For each advertisement you see (irrespective of the type of exposure) you have a chance to earn $0.50 each hour. If you’ve seen advertisements in the past hour, you’re eligible for the draw. 120 random users win the draw each hour.
    This amount will be added to the main balance and there will be a log of it in your Account History.

  • AdPrize

    AdPrize timer
    Adprize – For every ad you will view you will get 3 AdPrize chances. You have 90 minutes after viewing the advertisement to use your AdPrize chances by simply clicking on the number in the AdPrize box which is located below the advertisements (beside the Banner advertisement).

    The AdPrize timer will show when half the time is remaining (45 minutes) to finish viewing your AdPrize chances else those chances will expire.

    The Daily Prizes are as follows :

    Memberships (12 memberships divided in 12 prizes worth $1080)
    12 x Golden membership = $1080


    Monetary prizes added to the main balance ($1300 divided in 1209 prizes)
    600 x $0.25 = $150
    300 x $0.50 = $150
    150 x $1.00 = $150
    100 x $2.00 = $200
    30 x $5.00 = $150
    20 x $10.00 = $200
    6 x $25.00 = $150
    3 x $50.00 = $150


    Point prizes (40000 Points divided in 1111 prizes worth $120)
    2000 x 10 Points = 20000 Points
    200 x 100 Points = 20000 Points
    15 x 1000 Points = 15000 Points
    1 x 10000 Points = 10000 Points

    1. AdPrize chances are attached to advertisements. If the advertisment(s) resets, so will the AdPrize chances. So try and use all your AdPrize chances before your ad reset time or else you will loose them.

    2. The number of prizes on offer are dynamic and increases/decreases according to the global activity of the previous day.
    For example : If today the global activity is double that of the yesterday, then tomorrow the number of prizes will be doubled.

    For more details about AdPrize I’d recommend you read the following announcements.

    My AdPrize stats : http://www.ptcscrutiny.com/neobux-adprize/

  • DDoS Protected – NeoBux is protected from DDoS attacks from BlockDOS.net
    Having a DDoS protection is required for a huge site like NeoBux to prevent DDoS attacks resulting in downtime.
  • Main Balance To Upgrade – Since the site has cashout rules where you can only cashout from the payment processor you have invested from, this is a very nice feature for those who do not wish to be affected by this rule. Also it avoids the hassle of funding your account from payment processors.
  • Points – Another nice feature which was added after the changes in March, 2011. Points are your NeoBux currency which can be converted for purchasing some of their services.

  • “Bux” Site – Although NeoBux is a hybrid, you cannot ignore the fact that they show self-sponsored ads daily. The “bux” model is unsustainable due to the number of self-sponsored ads they offer daily. So “bux” sites depend on upgrades and rentals to keep the cash flow to pay their members. However, with the changes made back in March 2011, the site seems to have moved in the right direction although some people will always disagree.
  • Daily Forced Activity – You need to click your ads daily if you wish to earn from your referrals.

    TOS 3.7 :The clicks you earn from referrals are directly related to the clicks you make.
    If you click at least 4 advertisements being a Standard / Pioneer member or you click at least 9 advertisements being a Golden member, you’ll receive all clicks made from your referrals.
    If you click below that, the maximum you will receive is only the amount of clicks you’ve made multiplied by the number of referrals you have.
    The referral clicks will be calculated based on the clicks you made on the previous day.
    These calculations are based on the server time which can be seen in the “View Advertisements” page.
    The only advertisements that will count are: Extended Exposure, Standard Exposure, and
    Orange Fixed Advertisements.

    This rule applies ONLY to the commission you receive from the advertisement visualization of your referrals.
    All other commissions (purchases, Coins & Mini Jobs) are paid according to their own rules (if any) and have nothing to do with the fact if you view advertisements or not.

  • Payment Processor Limits
    The maximum amount you can request in a single cashout depends on the payment processor.
    The current limits are :
    NETELLER – $4900
    PayPal – $10,000

  • Coins


    NeoBux Offerwalls

    Coins can only be converted to real money credited directly to your Main Balance.
    You must have atleast 2500 Coins in your account before you can convert them.

    The conversion rate is as follows:

    Exchange Ratio
    2500 Coins = $2 ($0.80 per 1000 Coins)

    80,000 Coins = $128 ($1.60 per 1000 Coins)
    100,000 Coins = $170 ($1.70 per 1000 Coins)

    Coin offers will also grant you a referral commission from your direct referrals’ offers. You’ll get 20% of the amount of Coins each of your direct referrals earns. For example, if your direct referral earns 20,000 Coins you’ll get 4,000 Coins. The amount you can earn from all referrals is unlimited.

    Rules for Coins commissions:

    ● Credited after 30 days just like your own commissions.
    ● The user must still be your referral after the 30 days.
    ● If the offer is canceled the user will get the Coins canceled and your commission will also be canceled.

    Support for Coins : In the case of any pending offer not credited, you’ll need to contact the offer’s provider support directly. At the top-right of any offer table you’ll find a link to do so.
