Ciao is an online community that reviews and rates millions of products for the benefit of other consumers. There are a number of comparison shopping sites where you can submit product reviews which is not a bad thing to do. The only thing is that most of them do not pay you for the review. Ciao does just that.
Reviews on some products are awarded a cash payment when members rate a review as “helpful”, “very helpful” or “exceptional”. The payouts for the ratings are 1 to 3 cents per rating. Yes, I know that is doesn’t sound like a lot of money but, each month they offer Premium Fund payouts of up to $2000 which is divided between the best authors. So, if you write high quality reviews that make it easier for readers to make a decision on a product you are rewarded for it accordingly.
Another way you can make money with Ciao is via their referral program. You can earn money by inviting friends to join and if you have your own site you can display Ciao banners. For each new active member you get a one-time payment of $1 and then 50% of the new member’s earnings for their first 6 months earning.
Payouts are made via PayPal at the end of the month once a member’s account has reached a minimum balance of $5. If you write product reviews now and then that you don’t get paid for try writing some on Ciao. They may pay off well.
