Clixsense PayPal Suspended

Clixsense, a Paid-To-Click leading the industry since 2007, announced on the 8th February 2017 that PayPal had to be removed from deposit and withdrawal options.

Why this Clixsense PayPal ban? The reason quoted for this removal is that the “business model was now in violation of *their* (*PayPal*) user agreement”.

Clixsense Paypal Suspended: official message from the Clixsense Admin:

On Monday, February 6th Paypal placed a hold on our account. They advised me that due to new policy changes the ClixSense business model was now in violation of their user agreement and we would have to stop processing all payments (in and payments out).
We attribute this change to a significant amount of fly by night PTC, HYIPs, traffic exchanges, etc. that have made this industry look bad for those that run a legitimate business.

I have had several conference calls with Paypal over the last few days trying to convince them that we’ve posed no risk for the last seven years since we’ve introduced them, and even our account rep agrees, but in their eyes, it did not matter. On Tuesday afternoon I was told I would get a definitive answer either last night or this morning if we would be able to continue with them for at least mass pay cashouts. I received the call today that they are not allowing us to process with them anymore. If you haven’t noticed, the option to pay by Paypal has been removed from the site.

There you go, clixsense paypal blocked


Clixsense Paypal Withdrawal Cancelled: what’s next?

How will this clixsense paypal issue be handled?

As per Jim Grago’s words, the current PayPal withdrawal requests will be canceled, and the funds will be returned to your account balance.

You will be able to ask for a new withdrawal through the processor of your choice, such as Payoneer or Paytoo.

Alternatively, they are looking into adding Skrill and fixing Payza issues (in the USA) asap.


And they are also seeking for a bitcoin processors able to deal with high-volume transactions with a USA merchant. But it sounds quite a challenge to find a bitcoin processor which hold an MSB (license) to send funds from the United States legally.


Will PayPal get rid of all the Paid-To-Click, Traffic Exchanges, and Revenue Shares?

After Easyhits4u (biggest Traffic Exchange, since 2003) and Clixsense (second largest Paid-To-Click, since 2007) being suspended; people start to wonder if this will happen to all other websites with similar business models.

So far, at Neobux, the administrator does not look worried:

  1. If anyone has information about Adhitz network, which is from Jim Grago as well, let me know!

    I guess they can still use it there, but not sure about it.

    Cheers! :-)

    • I saw Adhitz removed Paypal as their payment processor too. So, my choose now is just Payza. I hope they add Skrill, Skrill is one of my favorite or maybe Neteller or Payoneer or Tango Card or Paytoo.

      I saw you don’t use Adhitz anymore, Tanguy and you just use MellowAds, MellowAds is very good, they have instant payment and they pay high in Bitcoin.

    • Hello Jose,

      I think they are facing difficulties with Payza (as the processor have trouble in the USA).

      I guess you have either the choice to wait they fix the issue or to send an email to request cancellation and use another processor.

    • Hello Amir,

      Interesting. Do you love that processor? How do the fees look like there?

      I never tested that payment processor; my plan was to wait and see if Clixsense manages to find a partner to integrate with bitcoins… :-)

      If not, I will need to dig into the other options available.

    • Hello Emma,

      Yes, I do agree with you.
      Clixsense is focused on the advertising services and the tasks; it’s a pure paid-to-click.

      If that business model is denied, I’m afraid the “bux” scheme with rented referrals have no luck whatsoever.

      I would love to see bitcoins being added to Clixsense. Which one would you love or plan to use?

    • Hello Pangom,

      I asked Lea (who is writing for me from time to time) to review the fees and country restrictions on those different processors.

      It will probably be posted on the blog later today! :-)

      Let us know what you tested, and the details; it’s always helpful to get more insights.

    • Hello Jeffrey,

      Yes, it would be awesome. I don’t think the big ones (e.g. Coinbase or BitPay) are more flexible than PayPal, though.

      They will need to search and analyze things in-depth to find a reliable one which can handle large volume and got the licenses required for a USA-based business.

      It would be perfect for both purpose, withdrawals and advertising purchases. Bitcoin has close to no fees and converts easily into your local currencies.

      Let’s see what happen in next few weeks! :-)

  2. If PayPal is saying clixsense is in violation of their terms and conditions, then what about neobux and other ptc sites working with PayPal ?

    I wonder if Jim has asked this question to PayPal.

    • Yes, this is quite confusing!

      And recently, BuXP was suspended too, and they fixed it quickly following those adjustments:

      “Paypal has issues with the way we are announcing our business, which means we can no longer advertise ourselves as a revenue sharing network. We have to explicitly write that we are not a multi-level marketing or get rich quick money scheme and have to repeat this in our FAQ.

      Besides that, we have to accept some extra security measures which are related to fees, chargebacks, disputes on PayPal itself.

      And last but not least, they require us to run our site under the Https:// protocol, which is, in any case, fair and will result in more security for you, but might take the most time to set up.”

      I do not understand this whole situation.

      It looks like the rules and regulation requirements vary randomly depending on the country (or the compliance department’s mood? ^^).

      Let’s see if Neobux comes into troubles in the next few weeks/months as well.

      • Clixsense in U.S ? Neobux in portugal? So maybe CS fit paypal rule, Neo not fit. But not sure, i might be wrong, so i need other ideas. So i can prepare my self if Neo and or other site also got that problem.

        • Hello Pangom,

          Numerous non-USA businesses were suspended recently too.

          For example, Grandclick network.

          So I don’t think the location of the business could explain whether the business is compliant or not.

  3. payment mathod isn’t select in my clixsense profile setting. please send me how to do it.does it not select without paypal account.

  4. Can you suggest a paying method for people outside U.s. or Canada? Coz I am from Hong Kong as I previously register a Skrill account aftet Paypal is banned. To withdraw my cash to my local account, the charging fee is so high which is almost half of my cashout amount. And I also cannot receive the payment in HK dolloars in my bank account balance.

  5. so basically I have clixsense for nothing.. okay thanks paypal for ruining a way for me to get simple money, now how the hell am I going to do purchasing on ebay or amazon?

    • Hello Bruno,

      I’m using cryptocurrencies a lot, so I did not really check the best way to convert into dollars… but it should be possible.
      How do you purchase on eBay/amazon? With PayPal only?

      For example, you could withdraw through Tango Card, redeem it to Wyre (their new third-party processor) and then withdraw the bitcoins to your wallet to do an exchange Bitcoin/PayPal.
      I believe you can do such exchange on websites like Not sure if it’s suitable fees-wise though.

      Bitcoins can also be converted to a bunch of processors (example via Changer) or withdrawn to your bank account (which could then be used to fund back PayPal or whatever you need).

      Some options to consider… :)

      All the best,
      Tanguy – Incognito007

  6. It’s a shame PayPal is not used.
    It’s such a runaround to use Payza…upload docs to verify etc and then wait.
    Support is slow also

    • Hello,

      Yes – PayPal removal was a bad news… I’m using Payza at the moment to request withdrawals, but the fees and delays make it less attractive for sure.

    • Hello, SkyMashido.

      Yes, you are right – They are one of the largest and mass-adopted payment processor.

      This said it looks like they are away from the whole “Paid-To-Click” related industry; so people will need to adapt.
      Crypto-currencies may be the perfect reply, but it looks like Jim is struggling to find USA providers who could handle such volume.

      Cheers! :)
