Note (Updated on August 3, 2019): ClixSense has now changed its name to ySense. So, to find the updated review on ClixSense, we suggest you check our review on ySense by clicking >HERE<. Below is our previous review on ClixSense.

Clixsense is a site where members can make money by completing the offers and surveys. It also used to have the service where members can earn money by viewing ads but now it has discontinued that service from 15 July 2017 and now you can earn money in Clixsense only by completing surveys and offers and referring people. However, on August 25, 2018, it suspended its affiliate program (referral program) for the members who are from Vietnam and China due to the survey and offer abuse. So, you can’t build a downline if you are from these two countries. However, current active referrals in a downline will still generate commissions for their respective sponsors from those countries. For the rest of other countries, the affiliate program will remain the same. You can find out more details on its affiliate program below in this review.

So, now we have updated our Clixsense review as per the new program of Clixsense. However, before we begin with our Clix Sense review, we want to make you clear that now we are not listing Clixsense within our Good and Trusted Online Works category because now we only list those sites within our Good and Trusted Online Works category from where members can earn a decent amount of money. But, from Clixsense, we can earn only pocket money and that is also if we can make lots of referrals. Everyone is not good at referring people and even if someone can refer people, why they refer to some site where they can only make pocket money by referring 1000s of people instead of referring to those sites where they can at least earn some decent monthly income, for example, the sites which we have listed within our Good and Trusted Online Works category which you can find by clicking >HERE<. That is why we don’t recommend Clixsense.

So, do we mean ClixSense is a scam? OK, let’s find out either is Clixsense a scam or not?

Nope, we don’t mean is a scam because it is paying its members on time. Although it is a very low amount, still you can earn from ClixSense without investing any money, just by completing surveys and offers. So, it is completely up to you either you want to work with it or not. Our review on Clixsense is only for you to give the clear picture of Clixsense. Neither to promote it nor to recommend it.

You may be looking for the full-time online income and planning to establish your online career, but ClixSense is definitely not that platform. You must be clear that from Clix Sense you can’t make more than a pocket money. The best way to make a full-time online income is by blogging. Yes, blogging sounds difficult and too much technical, but it is not. You can learn how to do the blogging very easily without having any technical knowledge by joining the renowned online business training program known as Wealthy Affiliate. If you are interested to find out the detailed review on Wealthy Affiliate then you can click >HERE<.

OK, let’s begin with our ClixSense review in detail as below to find out what is Clix Sense. has been launched in February 2007 and Mr. Steven Grisky was the owner of Clixsense at that time. But later on May 2010, it was sold to Mr. Jim Grago and since that, Mr. Grago is operating it. Before it is used to be a survey plus ad viewing site but from 15 July 2017,  it has discontinued its ad viewing part and now only operating as survey and offer site.

What is

ClixSense is a survey site where you can earn money by completing the surveys, offers, and tasks. You can earn from $0.1 to $5+ per survey, offer and task that you complete in Clixsense. Once you join the company, you will find out the various surveys, offers, and tasks by navigating through its menu and you need to complete those surveys as per the guidance provided in those surveys. But, It is not as simple as that because most of the time you will be kicked out in the middle of the survey and you will get nothing for your work. More than that, if you are from the Asian region, then it is better you forget to work in Clixsense because you will not get any good number of surveys to earn money from Clixsense.

Who can work in ClixSense?

ClixSense is suitable for all kind of users (for both beginner and professional online workers)

ClixSense program details. How can we earn money from Clixsense?

Aforementioned, you can earn money from ClixSense by completing the surveys, offers, and tasks. However, most of the surveys are geographically targeted, so there are more surveys for western countries than the eastern ones and even if you are from the western countries, chances of getting kicked out from the middle of surveys are maximum. So, be prepared as a volunteer in most of the surveys.

How to increase your income in ClixSense?

It is very difficult to make even a pocket money just by completing the surveys, offers, and tasks on your own. But the referral program (affiliate program) of ClixSense can provide you the opportunity to maximize your earnings in ClixSense.

You can earn commissions from your referrals when they complete the surveys, offers, and tasks in the same manner as you do. You will earn commission from the amount of money that your referral earn, but that commission will not be cut from your referral balance but will give you additionally from ClixSense. So, if you can refer people to join ClixSense through your affiliate link which you can find within the account summary page of ClixSense (the landing page which you can find just after login to your ClixSense account), then you can increase your income in ClixSense. There is no limit on the number of referrals that you can refer in ClixSense. You can refer as many referrals as you can and build huge downline which will help you to increase your income in ClixSense. But, it will not happen so easily. When your referrals find out that they will be kicked out from the middle of surveys and it is very difficult for them to earn money on their own without referring people, most of them will leave the site due to which it will be difficult for you to make your referrals active in Clixsense for a long time. However, if you still want to try, then you can click >HERE< for the detailed strategy to make referrals in Clixsense or in any other online work companies.

From August 25, 2018, Clixsense has discontinued its affiliate program in two countries and those are Vietnam and China. However, you can still make money from your referrals which you have referred before August 25, 2018, but if you are from Vietnam and China, now you can’t make new referrals.

ClixSense Affiliate Program details

You can earn $2.00 commission when your new affiliate earns $5. You will receive $0.30 signup commission on new active affiliates from top-tier countries and $0.10 signup commission on new active affiliates from other countries. The top tier countries include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, 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.

You also need to know that you can’t earn signup commissions instantly. Signup commission will be paid not earlier than 10 days after the signup date. It has been done to prevent the abuse of the affiliate program. However, your referrals must be performing at least 3 actions on 3 distinct days. Means, if your referrals are active you will get the signup commission accordingly, otherwise not.

You will also earn $5.00 bonus for every $50.00 earned in completed tasks by your referrals.

You can earn 20% commission of your referrals earnings forever. If you have a minimum of 100 or more active referrals with at least one transaction in the past 30 days then you can earn an additional 5% affiliate commission making your affiliate commission 25%. If you have 200 or more active referrals you get an additional 10% affiliate commission, making your affiliate commission 30%.

However, ClixSense always review the commission structures every 90 days to see how effective they are and change them accordingly as per need. But the changes will be always in the favor of affiliates. So, if we failed to update the affiliate structure of ClixSense on time here, you are welcome to place the comment below to remind us. However, we will definitely try to update our every review as far as we can.

Is ClixSense free to join or need to pay?

ClixSense is completely free to join and work.

Drawbacks of ClixSense on the basis of ClixSense complaints

  • If you cannot refer good amount of active members, then it will be very slow to earn money from Clixsense. To make a pocket money, you at least need to refer up to 1000s of people. So, be prepare for that or simply leave the site. You know that is why we don’t recommend it.
  • ClixSense cannot guarantee that the surveys and offers provided in ClixSense are legit. So you have to do your own research/study if you want to join any company through the surveys and offers of ClixSense.
  • Lots of surveys and offers are targeted to a certain group of people according to their profession, location, age and so on. So, there is always a chance to kick out in the middle of surveys and offers without giving you any credit. So, if you have enough time and patient, then only work with ClixSense. Otherwise, if you are busy and understand the value of time, follow the better options.
  • Some of the offers, tasks, surveys may ask for your credit card information. So, we highly suggest you avoid those kinds of surveys and offers where you need to provide your credit card information because those surveys and offers do not belong to Clixsense, but those are from the advertisers. Some of those advertisers can misuse your credit card information. So, never take a part in such surveys and offers within a Clixsense where you have to submit your credit card information or other critical personal information.
  • Surveys are geographically targeted as well as related with your profile information. So you can be disqualified anytime in the middle of the survey if they think you are not fit for that survey.

Is ClixSense restricted to some countries?

Yes, ClixSense is restricted to some countries like Afghanistan, Albania, Antarctica, Azerbaijan, Cuba, Kazakhstan, Iran, Iraq, North Korea and Niger. Scam Alert! Beware of ClixSense Bogus Emails

There are some phishing emails circulating around the internet which claims to be from the ClixSense and ask you to download a widget but in reality, that is not from the ClixSense. ClixSense will never ask anyone to download any widgets or apps. So, if you find out such email just delete that or report that as spam. That kind of email is a phishing scheme to get your login information of ClixSense so that they can hack your ClixSense account and take your earnings.

The emails that send by ClixSense will be from … address. So, if you get an email from other email address and claim to be from ClixSense, then you must know the fact that is a phishing email. So, beware of those Clix Sense scam emails.

    Thanks so much for your review.
    I’ve tried sites like this before, and you’re right, you make very little money for all your efforts.
    And there’s nothing more frustrating than starting a survey, only to be disqualified part way in.
    Thanks so much for this update,

    News Online Income (Monday, 13 August 2018 09:53)

    Yes Suzanne,
    The most frustrating thing is to be disqualified after completing half of the survey by spending around 20 minutes. Actually, it is not only with Clixsense, all survey companies have the same problem.

    Benji (Monday, 27 August 2018 18:35)

    Thanks for this in depth review! I have a decent amount of experience with paid survey sites and for me it’s always been pennies that I’m earning. I too decided my time was better spent at Wealthy Affiliate, so thanks for bringing up the alternative!

    News Online Income (Tuesday, 28 August 2018 03:42)

    Dear Benji,
    Yes, that’s why we don’t recommend sites like Clixsense anymore. Because if we can earn a more income by spending same time and effort on other sites like WA, then why spend that time in the sites like Clixsense.

    Great review on clixsense, seems to be very hard to make good money out of it! I rather spend my precious time with another Affiliate, where my efforts are rewarded accordingly.

    TEE TENG (Thursday, 13 September 2018 10:23)

    Hi. It sounds like ClixSense’s affiliate program is pretty good, but it’s not easy to run it. In fact, companies like ClixSense are quite a lot on the Internet, especially in terms of referral, they don’t give much commission, unless you referral more people to get a higher commission. Moreover, the surveys and offers in it are not so easy to complete. If you make a mistake, you will surveys the interruption, which is not suitable for those who generally want to establish a solid online business. I also don’t like the affiliate program of this referral because can’t get real network knowledge. Thanks for sharing this article.

    I guess it’s too good to be true. Every time I see an easy way to make fast money there is always a catch. Thanks for pointing out the flaws with ClixSense so I don’t have to go through the system and find out myself.

  • #11

    Dear Lane Onson,
    Yes, it is only for a very little pocket money.

    News Online Income (Friday, 14 September 2018 02:22)

    Dear Nathalie,
    Thanks for appreciating our review on ClixSense. Yes, it is very hard to make a good amount of money from ClixSense.

  • #13

    News Online Income (Friday, 14 September 2018 02:26)

    Dear TEE TENG,
    Yes, ClixSense’s affiliate program is good, but the problem is to find the active affiliate due to the low earnings. Yes, companies like ClixSense are quite a lot on the internet and most of them pay less money than ClixSense in terms of referral, however, still we can’t make a good amount of money from ClixSense. Yes, the surveys and offers in these kinds of companies are not so easy to complete.

  • #14

    News Online Income (Friday, 14 September 2018 02:54)

    Dear Stephen,
    We can’t say it is too good to be true because ClixSense never has claimed that people can earn a big amount of money easily. It has only claimed people can earn money by completing offers and surveys and making referrals. However, we don’t recommend it is only due to the amount of earning that we can make from this site which is very low.

    Stephanie (Wednesday, 03 October 2018 09:40)

    Thanks for sharing your review. I used to use Clixsense when they had PTC ads to earn money, but since they removed that I don’t spend any time on Clixsense.

    Although it is a legit site, it also takes too long to earn any decent money on there.

    In the years that I’ve been a Clixsense member I’ve only earned a few dollars.

    And I never seemed to qualify for surveys, even being in a western country, so I gave up.

    I think your #1 recommendation is the much better option.

  • #22

    Cher (Wednesday, 03 October 2018 18:05)

    Thank you for your thorough and honest review. This article definitely lets potential members know what to expect. Have you come across a survey site where the users are not disqualified for most of the surveys they attempt to take? That can turn a lot of people off.

  • #23

    Simon (Thursday, 04 October 2018 04:00)

    Thanks for presenting a very fair review of Clixsense; it’s not a scam because you can genuinely make money by completing surveys and offers, however, as you mention, the potential earnings are paltry – pocket money to be fair.
    Regarding the referring side of the business – would anyone be interested in making pocket money? Cixsense becomes insignificant when you compare it your #1 recommendation.
    I wasn’t aware they had discontinued the side of the business where you could earn income by viewing ads, thanks for your info,

  • #24

    Sharon (Thursday, 04 October 2018 18:06)

    I don’t know why people bother with these sorts of programs. Yes, you can make a little bit from it, however, why don’t you put that effort into your own business and website. I have tried surveys and things in the past and they were so tedious, boring, and I got nothing from them.
    Absolute waste of time. Thanks for a thorough review.

    Emmanuel R (Sunday, 07 October 2018 16:20)

    Thank you for your review about ClixSense. This reminds me of the bad memories of the moment when I was still a beginner in online marketing.

    I have been a member of a number of programs, including Clixsense, Neobux, to name these, but I only managed to earn a few cents.

    I even ended up losing more than I was earning because some programs promised me to buy the referrals to take advantage of their work but it was only a loose of time and money.

    Dear Stephanie,
    Thanks for sharing your experience with ClixSense within our forum. Yes, many members left ClixSenese after they take out their ad view earning option. Yes, it is very hard to earn a decent income from ClixSense. And yes, of course, our #1 recommendation (Wealthy Affiliate) is way too much better.

    Dear Cher,
    Yes, we have come across a survey site where the users are not disqualified for most of the surveys attempt they take but still that can’t lure a lot of people because earning is still low. The name of that survey site is PaidViewPoint about which you can find the details by following this link:-

    News Online Income (Monday, 08 October 2018 16:15)

    Yes Simon,
    ClixSense is not a scam. However, Cixsense definitely becomes insignificant due to the low earnings when we compare it with our #1 recommendation (Wealthy Affiliate). You can find our detailed review on Wealthy Affiliate by following this link:-

    News Online Income (Monday, 08 October 2018 16:23)

    Dear Sharon,
    We think people follow these sorts of programs due to the easiness of work and free to join. But since it is easy to work on these sites, so it is difficult to make decent income due to which lots of people leave these kinds of sites after working for some months due to the low earnings. So, we completely agree with you, it’s better we put our time, effort and money into something valuable from where we can expect the good return. For example, our #1 recommendation (Wealthy Affiliate) about which you can find the detailed review by following this link:-

  • #30

    News Online Income (Monday, 08 October 2018 16:35)

    Yes Emmanuel R,
    Most of the beginners in online work field join the sites like ClixSense as these kinds of survey sites are free to join and seems easy to work. However, now ClixSense is completely different than Neobux since now ClixSense is only the survey site, not ad viewing site anymore. Yes, in Neobux you can lose money by purchasing the referrals as most of those referrals are inactive. However, in ClixSense, there is not any option to purchase a referral. You can only make referrals on your own in ClixSense.

    Stephen (Thursday, 25 October 2018 07:55)

    I wonder why these come up at all. Writing survays has never been something I thought I can get rich from but if it is even hard to make pocket money it get’s really boring.

    The way you talk about this Clixsense I also don’t believe it is possible to get 1000’s of referrals lol.

    Good to see though that you have a working alternative that I will check out now.
