How do I make money from WidgetBucks?
There are three ways to make money from WidgetBucks:
- PPC, or Pay-Per-Click ads. Each time a user from the U.S. or Canada clicks on a WidgetBucks ad widget on your site, you get paid.
- CPM, or Cost-Per-Thousand Impressions. When a user from outside the U.S. and Canada views one of your pages that contains a CPM ad from one of WidgetBucks’ ad partners, you earn revenue.
- Referrals. When you refer a new WidgetBucks user, you will receive a 10 percent referral fee based on the commissions earned by the people you refer. You’ll receive this 10 percent for the full 12 months after the new member joins.
They make payments 45 days after the end of each month, if the account has a balance of at least $50. PayPal payments typically are made first, followed by checks. The $25 Sign-Up Bonus counts towards this $50 minimum for payment and is shown on your my bucks page on widgetsbucks. As an example, if you signed up for WidgetBucks in October, you would receive your first commission payment within 45 days of Oct. 31, approximately mid December, however they make best efforts to get money sent out earlier.
When you refer a new WidgetBucks user, you will receive a 10 percent referral fee based on the commissions earned by the people you refer. You’ll receive this 10 percent for the full 12 months after the new member joins. Your referral fees will be credited to your account and paid monthly, along with your commission payout. So, if you refer someone, and they make $100 in commissions, they pay you $10; if they make $1,000, they pay you $100. This continues for a whole year on all the commissions they earn. The Referral/Bonus page has details on the Bonus and Referral Program. When you are logged-in, go to the Referral Tools page to grab referral ads. You will soon see a “Grab this Widget” link on all widgets for viral distribution, which includes your referral information. Note that the cookie used to identify those you refer lasts for 30 days after they click on a referral link.
