Earn Money on Ciao’s Consumer Community

Make Money with Ciao!

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.

    Hi Gerri, I have used this before and they do pay what you earn. However I found surveys a bit time consuming for me….but generally I think it’s a good opportunity to earn extra money.

    Thanks for your comment. You are correct in saying surveys can be time consuming but, they are things you can do when you have a bit of spare time. I used to be signed up to a number of survey companies but I have narrowed it down to two because I don’t have the time to be filling out survey after survey. But, some people do have the time to do it and make a good amount of money doing it.

    Ciao has stopped awarding any upfront payments.
    Now that earning at ciao has become tougher, here’s another great site where you can post your reviews and earn a whopping 2$ per accepted review. The review has to be 200 words long atleast. Plus, there is no limit on what you can review. That’s right, review anything you want. Here’s the link http://www.reviewstream.com/writereview.php/?inv=EayXBjRed5Ka A good strategy would be to first submit your review to this site and in the rare case that it gets rejected, you post it on ciao. This way your efforts won’t go futile.
