ySense Is a RELIABLE website that pays you to complete surveys, watch videos, answer questions, do simple tasks and refer your friends.

Why ySense?

One of the easiest ways to make money online is to join a website that pays you to complete tasks. Simple tasks like Surveys, playing games, doing some tasks and referring your friends. But there is usually three problems with these kind of Sites.

The first problem is trust. There are a lot of scam websites out there that promises to do this and waste your time. That is very discouraging. But the good news is, there are also few websites that are actually reliable. And ClixSense is top of the list.  ySense has been actively online since 2007 as ClixSense. That is over 12 years. They have paid out over $34 million to thousands of people on its platform. They are among the most popular websites on the internet with an Alexa ranking in the Top 8, 000 websites. That means they are trusted by so many people out there.

Another problem associated with this kind of GPT (Get Paid To) websites is that they are limited to people from Major countries like USA, Australia, Canada and United Kingdom. That is where ySense stands out. You can make money on ClixSense from Nigeria, India, Kenya, South Africa, Belgium, China. Anywhere in the World. And if you are in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia, you can make even more money.

The third problem is that it is always difficult getting your money after all the hard work. With ySense it is very easy to get your money. Once you have reached $10 dollars you can get your money. And they pay you within 5 days!

There are only Few websites that are reliable and popular with reputation in these line of work and ySense  is the best. For the purpose of this article, we tried them to see if they actually work, yes they work and everything went according to plan.

If you spend lots of free time online or you are a student on vacation, you can try ySense and make some extra money with those free time. It will only take about 10 minutes of your time daily.

There will be a lot of times that you do not qualify for surveys, don’t worry, keep checking.  There are many reasons you may not qualify for Surveys, it could be your location or something on your profile.

  1. Good day, thanks for these great tip n opportunity given to us here, God bless. OK I just got ma clixsense account but I have been denied in d survey platform. Pls how do I get access to it. Thank you.

    • Denied? How?
      Normally you will not qualify for many of the surveys because almost all surveys are targeted at location, age group, industry and so on. Check your Survey invites, you should be qualified for some. Also try completing tasks. As you build trust, Clixsense will give you access to more surveys

  2. Good evening, what do you mean by “Once you have reached $10 dollars you can get your money.”?

    Help please

  5. Hi, tried creating an account and it keeps saying “An account already exist with this email address”. Just After putting a username.

    I’ve tried using different emails, but still isn’t working, pls help.

  6. Let’s be truthful. It doesn’t work for Nigerians living in Nigeria or for those living in Nigeria. I have tried it last year, waited on them, and all the stuff people will advice simply as a way to save face or defend their write-ups. As long as your location is Nigeria, it doesn’t work. There are many reasons for that but I won’t elaborate. If there’s any evidence on the contrary, please let’s see it and also have the way forward. If we can have what works here in Nigeria, that would be very beautiful.

  7. I created account with them recently but I’ve not taken any survey due to the unavailability but eventually it shows 10 min. survey @$3.4, this is really amazing

  8. The write-up is straightforward and informative but in all honesty, is this really working. Please reply in all honesty.
