The other day, I’ve talked about earning money in myLot by posting up discussion topics. I’ve earned USD $ 0.40 on my second day there. Not much actually. That’s why I’ve decided to look on other alternatives while keeping the myLot as “de-stress” place.
I’ve registered in some of the review sites which pay people for posting up product reviews. I’ve tried Epinions (very very very slow earning rate), SharedReviews (very slow as well), DooYoo (only available for UK and Europe residents) and Ciao (available to UK residents). All those, I must admit, are not that easy to earn money.
Then I came across ReviewStream. Unlike the rest of the review sites, this site lets you write ANY product reviews. You can write in a simple form since there’s no minimum or maximum length. You can also write on any product since the title of the review is up to you to put. The company requires you to have a PayPal account though. The rate is around USD $ 2 per review and if your review is so-so or there’s already another such product review, you might be paid BULK RATE instead. Bulk rate is the current review rate divided by 5. So the current rate is USD $ 2, the bulk rate would be USD $ 0.40.
I’ve just got the acknowledgements from ReviewStream of my 2 reviews and I’ve earned USD $ 2.40. Not too bad since the reviews are not really lengthy.
But there are some things which you need to pay attention to.
The account which you are going to use is your email address. There’s no user registration. There’s a nickname which will be tied to your email address. That’s all. And also, always ENSURE that your email address in ReviewStream account is connected to your PayPal. Otherwise, you will not get anything. This is very important.
The difference between bulk rate post and full rate post is quite subjective since there’s no proper guideline given by ReviewStream. But I’ve read it from somewhere that the recommended length of the review should be at least 300 words. This is not stated anywhere in ReviewStream though.
You will receive an email right after you posted the review. One review, one email. Always keep the email because that’s the only proof that you’ve got. If you managed to search the site and saw your review, without any acknowledgment from their side. You can use the email to ask them. Once you’ve received the acknowledgment email, you need to wait 72 hours or more for them to confirm that your review has been accepted. They will send you an email with the rate charged and your account’s balance.
Be consistent and be precise. Don’t go out of topic because your review might end up getting rejected by them and you earn 0.
Other than that, I find that ReviewStream is a very good place to earn side income. It’s up to you whether to try it or not. Writing a short review for them doesn’t take that much time as well. And you get to review on ANYTHING. Not that difficult, right?
If you’re interested to join, go here - join ReviewStream. Yea, I do get a little bit of benefits from here. Hope this helps.
