Wait Decades For Dollars

AdvantagesFree to use

DisadvantagesExpect a long long wait to reach the minimum payout

"Desktopdollars.com is yet another of those websites that promise to pay you for surfing and viewing ads, and as you may have guessed already from the name, is not British based. However, you can join up from any country in the world assuming you are happy to be paid in American dollars and not good old British pounds So what is it all about? Well it’s basically another of those ‘get paid to surf’ type schemes where you register ..." Read review

UPDATED Easy to use, Low pay rates

AdvantagesVery easy to use, No need to be surfing, great referal structure.

DisadvantagesA very low payrate

"I am now in the process of going through all my “Paid-to-Surf”, Paid-for-Email”, etc programs, that I have reviewed over the last six months and updating them, as you know, these programs can be very volatile and can change with the wind, and also, sometimes they give you a decent impression, only a few months down the line you realise they are useless. I have left my original review at the bottom of the page, to give anyone the ..." Read review

Fast Cash

AdvantagesLinking many activities means better accumulation of money

DisadvantagesIt's US dollars only. Doh!

"Many of the opinions I have read so far indicate that most people are interested only in the adbar you can download. I wanted to set this straight and talk about the site and a few other options. THE SITE ITSELF: When I got onto the site it reminded me of the BT genie site, mainly for the fonts and colours used. Anyway, it was rather cluttered but the drop down menu's at the top allowed me to figurwe out how to navigate my way to what I needed. ..." Read review

Bastard sons of scum sucking weasels

AdvantagesAbsolutely none

DisadvantagesHotText, hijacking advertising,

"Bit of an over the top title? Read on and then you tell me. Desktop dollars for the uninformed is one of the few remaining 'get paid to surf' programs, most of the others having withdrawn from the race due to lack of advertising revenue. Basically you download a small program, that when installed creates a bar on your screen that flashes adverts at you. You are supposed to be paid a set amount for every hour that the bar is running, and you are ..." Read review

IMPORTANT NOTE - no more adbar - why bother then

Advantagesgames, competitions

Disadvantagesamerican, no more adbar, lost your money if you collected some

"There are enough opinions here about desktop dollars and their paid to surf adbar scheme. Yes the payout rate is low, yes the bar is a pain in the ass because it makes lots of popups etc etc. Well, now nobody needs to worry about that, because as of the end of July, they will not be paying for adbar usage. AND to make matters worse for us poor internationals, if you have not reached the minimum payout of $100, your balance is deleted at that time ..." Read review

FALSE ADVERTISING ?

AdvantagesNONE AT PRESENT

DisadvantagesPLENTY

"I joined Desktop Dollars around six months ago as the advertised Unlimited Hours at around 30p per hour seemed reasonable. Two months later when I received my first payment details the true figures emerged,Unlimited Hours at around 10p Hour! Then came the introduction of being paid per adverts viewed which seemed to decrease the hourly rate further.With a Minimum Payout of £25 ( Paid in US Dollars - Which will incur cheque charges )This equates to ..."

Not enough dollars

AdvantagesUnlimited surftime

DisadvantagesRates very low

"I joined this company in July after a recommendation from a friend. I have run the adbar for a number of hours (15 ish) in the month of july and thus far have accumulated $1.99 in my account. Just looking at the figures, the rate is of course pretty poor. However, for someone who works from home or generally surfs a lot, perhaps there is a sizable income to be made. One thing, I like about this program is, that it forces people to click ..." Read review

Doesnt live up to expectations

AdvantagesGood features on the viewbar

DisadvantagesLarge minimum-payout balances; don't get paid by the hour

"I signed up with Desktop Dollars a couple of months ago and faithfully logged in to the viewbar every time I went online either at home or at college. In October I amassed what I thought was quite a healthy number of ads viewed but was less than impressed when I recently learnt my earnings for October: just 2 cents. To be fair, it is possible to earn a great deal more money by earning commission on your referrals' earnings but the apathy of other ..." Read review

No profit with this zone

AdvantagesNow there are none

DisadvantagesMiniscule rate, cranky software

"Back in February Desktop Dollars seemed to be offering a reasonable deal. OK so running their Profitzone surfbar only paid 15 cents or so an hour, but it was unlimited hours and you were going to get paid via a cashpoint card. I was only going to run the thing after I'd logged my 25 hours on alladvantage, so I was quite happy just running up credit of a few dollars a month. The reality is as follows; They've changed to paying by ads viewed ..." Read review

Desktop Dollars

AdvantagesStable bar, unlimited hours, decent payouts

DisadvantagesHave to click every roughly 30 minutes

"Another day, another ad bar, but is this one any different from the others ? Well, it is in one repsect in that you are automatically logged off every half hour or so, and must click in the ad-bar to reactivate it. In theory, this should be good for the users of the bar as it will make it more difficult to create cheater programs and therefore the payout rates should be a true reflection of its users input to the company. However, in practice, ..." Read review

No Profits in the "Profit Zone".

AdvantagesMembers can be 13yrs old, unlimited use, get paid from home

Disadvantagesdoesn't earn alot of money,

"I had registered to be a member of DesktopDollars in February 2000. At the time, there were many problems with downloading the program. It had took a month before I could actually use it. Back then, DesktopDollars paid members $1.25 an hour, and members could surf and use the view bar a max. of 50 hours a month. Their site has totally changed since then and so has the pay rate. Desktopdollars starteing offering new contests to win $250.00 but ..." Read review

no maximum set hours

Advantagessurf as long as you like and get paid

Disadvantagessometimes no ads in the veiwbar

"I run a few of the paid whilst surfing or online bars. The difference with Desktop Dollers is that there are no maximum payout hours. They will also pay out on your downline ads veiwed despite the total being higher than yours. I have found that with most of the other programmes, you will only get paid for your downline time if it is lower or equal to yours. The payment is available by cheque or clixcard, hopefully the latter will avoid currency ..." Read review

NO Worth It At All!

AdvantagesAlot of Money!

DisadvantagesNot May Adds Yet!

"This is the worst program I have used I have served over 20 hours and still hardly any money earned . Currently the pay out was only $0.07 an hour. The bar it self takes up alot of memory and the banners take long to load. I would say join some other company like Surftocash.com as they pay more. Also thre are nearly a 100 companies on the net offering money for almost nothing. Join the like sof bepaid dot com as they offer much more I got .25 in ..." Read review
