ClixSense is one of the most commonly recommended websites for Making Money Online. If you search online for “How To Make Money Online“, you must have definitely come across ClixSense. However, most people are confused if it is legitimate or Scam. Therefore, I thought of writing this ClixSense Review to clear your doubts. So please read on to find it yourself of ClixSense is Legitimate Or Scam.

Note: This review has been written in 2016 and updated regularly to reflect any changes. ( Latest update in April 2017 )

What Is ClixSense

ClixSense is a “Get Paid To” (GPT) website which pays you for performing certain tasks like viewing advertisements and Completing ClixSense surveys, Clixsense offers & MicroJobs. It is free to Join with a premium plan to increase your pay rates. However, an upgrade to premium is not compulsory and you may continue to use the free version as long as you want.

Is ClixSense Legit?

ClixSense is one of the oldest GPT websites and has been online and paying its member since February 2007. From my personal experience, I can say that ClixSense is legit without any doubt.

However, as claimed by many people, you cannot get rich with ClixSense. It is a source of secondary income and can never replace your primary source of Income.

ClixSense is good for Students looking out for pocket money, housewives who want to utilize their free time to make money and also for working professionals who are looking for a small amount of money to bear their daily expenses.

By working for 20-25 minutes daily, one can make up to Rs $15  per month. However, there are people who earn up to Rs $40- $50 per month with it.

If you are from ClixSense Tier 1 country you can earn much more than other countries. This is because Tier 1 countries get many high paying ClixSense Surveys. Also, the number of ads available to these countries are more.

At ClixSense, I know people from Tier 1 countries who have earned more money in 3-4 days than what their counterparts in India could earn in 1 month.

The Tier 1 country includes Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and United States

ClixSense Payment Proof

At Bloggerz Arena, I believe in total Transparency and So I thought of adding payment proof for ClixSense. Below is the screenshot of Paypal Payment receipt confirming that ClixSense has transferred an amount of $41.79 to my account.

Various Methods Of Making Money With ClixSense

Now that we know ClixSense is legitimate, let us now understand and review various ways you can earn money with it.

1. Earn Money By Viewing Advertisements

This is the primary business of ClixSense. It started operations with it and then expanded its business to offer other services. However, unfortunately, pay rates for these Jobs are a bit low. You get paid anywhere in the range of $0.001 to $0.01 for viewing an advertisement for a specified duration.

Unless you are from Tier 1 country where you get many standard ads worth $0.01, you cannot earn much with advertisements.  I usually recommend all my readers to click only on Standard and Mini ads under the “Regular Ads” section as the pay rates for the same are relatively high. Unless you have time to kill, you must avoid clicking on Sticky ads.

Some people do find difficulty in using this method so I will explain it in brief. All you need to do is, click on any ad to open a new tab. You will be required to click on the picture of a cat to verify you are human.

Once you click on the right picture, a countdown timer will start at the top. Duration of the timer will depend on the type of ad. During this period, you need to keep your browser in focus, you cannot switch the tabs. Doing so will pause the timer.

After viewing the advertisement for required time, a message will be displayed that your click has been validated. You can then close the tab and open another advertisement

2. Get Paid To Complete Surveys

Out of all the methods to Make Money with ClixSense, Surveys pay you the most. The length of each survey varies from 10-30 minutes. The pay rates for each survey too varies from $0.35 t0 $5.

The number of surveys you get each day depends on your Location, Profession, Interests and many other factors. People from Tier 1 countries like US, UK, Canada etc get more surveys and with better pay rates.

To make sure you get the right surveys matching your profile, do not forget to complete your survey profile on the ClixSense Survey Page

3. Earn With CrowdFlower Tasks

Completing Micro Jobs at CrowdFlower is another recommended way of Making Money with ClixSense. This is the best way people from India, Phillippines, Bangladesh and other nations, where not many surveys are available can make quick money.

Do not trust me? Check the below screenshot from my account. Just to remind you I am from India.

My Tasks History - ClixSense

As you can see, in the 6th and 7th hour of the day I earned $1.26 and $1.19 respectively. You must note that I did not work for the whole hour continuously still I managed to earn that amount. This is evident from the below screenshot.

My Tasks History Details - ClixSense

As you can see, it took me 2-3 minutes to complete “Judge The Sentiment Of Tweets” task which is worth 7 cents. “Categorize These Conversations” task which was worth the same amount took me just a minute to complete, while “Stack Overflow Post Status Judgment” task took me 4-5 minutes for 12 cents.

So if you can work continuously, you can easily make $2 per hour. Add to it ClixSense Bonus for completing the daily checklist. It varies from 5% to 7% for normal users and 13% to 16% for ClixSense Premium users.

So if you work for 3-4 hours per day, you can easily make $7-8 per day which is a decent amount to earn part time.

However, when you start at Level 0, you will have very few tasks to complete. Also, the Pay per task would also be very low. This makes most people feel that CrowdFlower tasks are a waste of time.

But once you move up to Level 1  and above, there will be a plethora of tasks to complete. The pay per task also improves substantially.

CrowdFlower tasks have 3 modes, Test Mode, Work Mode and Expelled Mode. Most Crowdflower tasks begin with Test questions which are intended to test your knowledge and is termed as Test Mode. You do not get paid for these tasks. To reach level 1, you will have to answer 100 such test questions with at least 70% accuracy.

If you answer the Test questions with the desired accuracy mentioned in the task, you will then proceed to Work Mode and will earn for every task you complete thereon.

Apart from initial test questions, you will also get 1 random test question in Work Mode. Answering this question wrongly will affect your overall accuracy and if your accuracy falls below the desired accuracy, you will enter the expelled Mode and cannot complete any further tasks. You will, however, get paid for all the tasks completed in Work Mode including your final task.

If you complete every CrowdFflower task as and when available with high accuracy, it may take up to 30-50 days for your to reach level 1.

Still, I personally prefer CrowdFlower tasks over any other way of making money with ClixSense. This is because, once at Level 1, you have enough Crowdflower tasks to earn you a decent amount of pocket money.

There are many people who regularly complete over 4000 tasks in a month. You can check the list of Top Workers at ClixSense at the bottom of your Tasks Page.

4. Make Money By Completing Offers

ClixSense also provides you offers from various sources like and TrialPay. With these offers, you get paid to Download Applications, play games, complete surveys etc. Some offers are free while other require you to make a purchase. The offers are generally limited and so not much scope to earn with it. For completing each offer, which you get paid in ClixCents which is automatically converted to cash. 100 ClixCents = $1

It surely is an easy way of making money if you have an unlimited internet plan. So make sure to complete the free offers for some quick money.

5. ClixGrid

ClixGrid is a game which gives you a chance to win up to $10. You have to click on random boxes of a picture. Each click will open up an advertisement and after viewing it for 10 seconds, you will come to know if you win anything. I will not get into details as I feel it is a complete waste of time. The only reason you may consider using ClixGrid is to complete the daily bonus.

6. ClixSense Bonus

ClixSense Bonus PercentAs a free ClixSense user, you can earn up to 7% extra Bonus daily. So if your daily earnings from Advertisements, Surveys, Tasks and Offers is $1, your total earnings will be $1.07. Premium Clixsense users get up to 16% bonus.

To be able to get the above Bonus, you need to first complete the daily checklist which includes the following

  1. Click 6 Ads of any kind
  2. Click at least 20 ClixGrid squares.
  3. Complete only one of the following:
    1. 10 CrowdFlower Tasks; or
    2. 2 offers or surveys
    3. 5 CrowdFlower Tasks and at least 1 offer or survey
  4. Visit at least one page of our forum. Posting is not required.

To get the ClixAddon bonus of 1%, you need to Install ClixAddon extension for your browser. This is anyways recommended to install since it notifies you of new Surveys and tasks so that you do not have to open the website regularly for checking the same.

To get Activity extra bonus, you need to complete daily checklist 3 days in a row.

7. Referring ClixSense To Others

Whenever someone signs up to ClixSense using your referral link, ClixSense pays you a certain percentage of what your referral earns. This does not affect the earnings of your referral. Though this looks to be easy money, it is not.

Firstly, it is very hard to find people who are not already registered with ClixSense and secondly, the money you make from Referrals is too low. So unless you have over 1000 referrals using ClixSense regularly, you cannot expect much income. However, if you are anyways going to recommend it to your friends, it is a good way of making some extra Income.

Registering With ClixSense

Registering with ClixSense is straightforward. Just click on the Sign-Up button below and fill up the SignUp Form.

After submitting the form, an email with a confirmation link will be sent to the Email Address provided. You need to click on this link to activate your account.

ClixSense Payment Mode

ClixSense allows you to withdraw through PayPal, PayToo, Tango Card, Payza, Payoneer, Skrill, and Cheque (US Only). Out of the mentioned Payment modes, PayPal is the best and most reliable Payment mode.

Update: ClixSense has discontinued PayPal. So Payoneer turns out to be the best option to withdraw your earnings. Also, you can earn $25 as soon as you deposit or receive payments of $100 or more in your Payoneer account.

You can use the below link to get free $25 in your Payoneer Account

ClixSense Free Vs Premium

A lot of people are confused if they should use Free ClixSense or Upgrade to ClixSense Premium. The question is answered by ClixSense themselves.

It is clearly mentioned on their website that you should upgrade to ClixSense premium only if you can complete your daily checklist on a regular basis or if you can invite a good number of referrals. Below is the entire message.

ClixSense Premium

What’s interesting is the fact that as soon as I upgraded to premium, I started getting minimum 4 Standard Ads worth $0.01 as against one I used to get earlier. This may just be a co-incidence. I am yet to confirm as ClixSense does not guarantee you more ads.

Final Words

ClixSense is certainly a legitimate website which you can use to earn some money in your Free time. It will surely not get you rich. But it is the best way of making money in your free time.

The best part is, viewing advertisements, completing ClixSense Surveys or Crowdflower Tasks do not require any special skills. Anyone with basic knowledge of internet can complete it.

  1. Mharj Salvaleon

    Hello! Im a Filipino. If i register here in HOng kong, can I still use my Clixsense acct when i go back to The Philippines?

    • Yes Mharj, you can use the same ClixSense account in Singapore as well as the Philippines. However, you must inform ClixSense customer support as soon as you go back to the Philippines. To be noted is that ClixSense will only change your country if you stay there for 90 days or more.

  2. Sir,

  3. sir i want to know what to do after the sign up process … i have registered on payoneer too…

    • Hi Rashmi,
      The first thing that you need to do is install Clixsense Addon for your browser. Whenever you have your browser opened, it will notify you about all the Surveys, Tasks and avertisements available.

      Try to complete surveys and tasks as soon as they are available as they may be available for a limited time or to limited audience. Spend less time clicking advertisements as they pay you very less.

      Do contact me through contact us page of you need any further help.

  4. Hi Aquif, How do I get the test mode questions for crowd flower tasks. I am trying to open the task but it displays no work is there. Please help

    • Hi Binu,
      As I said in the post itself, you get very few tasks at level 0. So make sure to install the ClixSense toolbar and complete the tasks as and when they are available. You can get plenty of such tasks at Level 1 and above.

  5. I am very thankful to you for this artical sir.. I am from pakistan and want some legel online work.. can you explain the income mathod for me.
    How I make PayPal account.

    • Hello Sajjad, you can try ClixSense and Microworkers if you do not have any coding skills.

      For creating Paypal account you have to simply signup with them. Depending upon the government guidelines in your country you may have to verify your account. Someone local maybe able to help you with the verification process if at all needed.

  6. may I use two ptc site and from one laptop or desktop?

  7. Access to this page has been denied . Access via a Proxy /VPN /VPS or from a country not on your profile is not permitted

    when I try to view ads …the above is the error message it gives me….pls what’s causing that?

  8. Gud day to u….pls is payoneer account accepted on clixsence?

    • I am sorry Mercy. ClixSense does not accept Payoneer as a payment method. You can use PayPal, PayToo, Neteller, Tango Card or Payza to withdraw your earnings. If you are from the USA, you can also withdraw your earnings via check.

  9. Do you have western union for payout? In the Philippine there is no paypal ..

  10. Am using Clixsense from past 1months and am from India . But am not getting qualified for any surveys and havent got a single task till now . Loosing all hopes with it 🙁 . Can you please tell me what might be the problem ?

    • Hi Naveena. As I mentioned in the article, the number of surveys available at ClixSense are very low for people from developing nations and India is one of them. Generally, the surveys are designed for a very specific audience and you may not be meeting criteria. The ones which are designed for masses gets the required number of participants within minutes. So unless you are online most of the time and have ClixAddon installed to inform you about new surveys, it is going to be difficult for you to complete surveys.

      As for tasks, again at Level 0, they are scanty. It takes almost couple of months for most people to reach Level 1 provided they complete all the tasks coming their way irrespective of pay rates and that too with good accuracy.

  11. Hey, would there be any problem with my account if I do not work on a daily basis?

    • No Karunamoy. Your account will not be affected if you do not login to your account for even a month. ClixSense, however, deactivates your account if you do not login to your ClixSense Account for a period of 90 days.

      Even after 90 days of inactivity, you can still reactivate your account, but the balance in your account would be reset to zero. You will, however, retain your referrals unless they have themselves chosen to change their sponsors.

      Hope this helps you.

  12. Hey, the article is really very nice but you know the amount i earn with clixsense is very very less please suggest a way to increase my earnings. Thanks!!!

    • Hi Manoj,

      The trick here is to not spend much time clicking ads. You can just click the standard ads at the bottom of the page and skip the sticky ones. Also, try to attempt all the surveys even if you are regularly getting disqualified.

      Crowdflower tasks can get you a good amount of money beyond Level 1. So try hard to move to level 1. I know it’s not easy to get tasks at Level 0. But you have to grab every task coming your way irrespective of the pay, till you reach Level 1.

      Apart from this, if you can, try to get some referrals who are regularly using ClixSense. This will give you some extra income.

  13. How wil i know if i am earning on clixsense?

  14. I need a suggestion on whether I should upgrade to premium account . I am earning around 1.5-2.5dollars per day but I want to increase my earning.also if you could help me get some referrals.

    • If you are able to complete daily checklist regularly and if you have good amount of referrals, then you can consider upgrading to premium account. Else, it is not worth it.

  15. Paypal is banned in my country! What do I do now?

  16. what bank account in philippines can be link to paypal?

  17. I live in US and want to make some money from here which can directly be deposited to my bank in India, how can I do that ?

    • If this is with regards to ClixSense or other Online work, you can easily do so by creating a PayPal account linked to an Indian bank. For creating PayPal account, you just need to verify your Indian PAN Card, Email Address, and Bank account number. You can then select PayPal as your payment method. PayPal will send the payments directly to your Indian bank account.

  18. Hey thanks for sharing..very usefull for me its difficult to find legitimate sites u make it easy for me ……Thanks again
