I use WebTV, or AOL. Can I join too?
Yes, we welcome WebTV and AOL members. Join Now.
I use MSNTV or MSNTV2. Can I join?
No, unfortunately the obsolete msntv system in not compatible with our site. Sorry, you could try asking Microsoft to update it, but that is probably a waste of your time. A better approach may be to get a cheap 2nd user PC or Laptop and try the Ubuntu operating system instead of Microsoft Windows. Note that Ubuntu is self and/or community supported only... but it is totally FREE.
Am I allowed to have more than one AdPaid.com account?
No, sorry, We allow only One account per individual. There may be more than one account per household, however each person registering or using an account must have a separate computer and separate Internet Service Provider (ISP) e.g. one AOL and one Comcast (yes, his and hers ISP's! it happens!) to participate in our program.
How can I cancel receiving your newsletters?
Your membership in our program allows AdPaid.com to send you email messages and advertisements. To stop receiving emails from AdPaid.com you must cancel your membership. You will forfeit any and all earnings and downline referrals. To cancel, login to your account and click the Cancel-My-Account link. At the bottom of the page you will find the option to "Cancel Your Account". Alternatively, you may quote/reply back to one of our newsletters with the word "Cancel". We are always looking at ways to improve our program, and we do welcome feedback. If you have a moment, please let us know why you are thinking of cancelling your account.
How can I change my personal information or Payment Details?
Login to your account and click the "My User Info" link. You will be able to edit most of your information there. Please let us know if you relocate to another country and we will adjust your account.
Why is my AdPaid.com account temporarily suspended?
This is very rare. It is almost always because of email problems. If we send you an email and it is returned to us as undeliverable ("bounced") by your ISP, then we will temporarily suspend your account until you let us know that you have resolved the problem.
Another, even rarer, situation would be if we are unable to contact you and we need to "get your attention". Please note that we always reply to emails, so if you don't hear from us try another of your email addresses.
Another reason could be if you have accidentally or falsely accused us of spamming you. Many email ISP's now have a [Mark as Junk] or [Report Spam] link or button. If you click that, a spam complaint is raised. As AdPaid.com is a legitimate, reputable company using a confirmed double opt-in subscription system, we receive a copy of your complaint. Naturally we assume that you no longer wish to be a member of AdPaid.com so we suspend your account pending any explanation from you. We have to be strict about this as it could adversely affect AdPaid.com's 99.94% SenderScore email Deliverability Rating.
I can't login to AdPaid.com. My password does not work. I have forgotten my password and/or username, what do I do?

The new password will be a strong, randomized one. We suggest that you use Copy and Paste to enter it.
How much can I earn at AdPaid.com?
You can earn as much as you want, depending on the effort that you put in. Yes, sorry, no "free money" here, on trees or anywhere else. You will need to "Work the Program".
If you want a little extra cash for the Holiday season, or maybe as some seed cash to spend on other online opportunites, then that is pretty easy to do in less than 15 minutes per day.
On the other hand, some of our Members really work hard at our program and make a useful income.
AdPaid.com provides a way for you to make money, it is up to you to use it.

How much do I earn by reading AdPaid.com paid emails?
Each advertiser pays a different amount per unique visit. These amounts change frequently so we cannot give an exact amount for each visit. However, we do reward you with a large percentage of the amount we earn. You will typically earn between 1/3 and 1/2 of a cent for reading each email ad and visiting the website.
Beware of some other programs who claim that you will "earn" more, but then never actually "pay" you! Some pay to begin with, but then vanish with your earnings!

Unless indicated otherwise, only participate in each offer once. Your account will be credited within 10 days of AdPaid.com recieving payment from the advertiser, this is normally within 45 days, usually much sooner.

Categories of Interest
What are these tick/check boxes for in my user profile?
These allow us to target the email ads that we send out. Three categories we will address below, but we ask you to carefully consider the options you select. You will receive more paid offers if you only select the categories that you are genuinely interested in. Watch out for the "trick" categories that tell us if you are really paying attention
What are Contest Ads?
These are either ads about contests, or, they are ads where we will select a random group of Winning Members who will receive a larger than normal reward for visiting the advertiser's site. Full details are given in each Contest email.
Some people say they don't like points. It is true that at some other programs points are worth nothing more than... points.
At AdPaid.com Our Points allow you to share in AdPaid.com's net profits! The value of your Points is calculated at the end of each month, based on our results. Points are then converted to Cash, and that Cash amount is automatically added to your account.

What are Search Ads?
Search Ads advertise search portals that can be used to find just about anything you like.
N.B. Nobody is required to perform a search. Nobody is required to do anything other than properly Visit the advertisers' portal. What you do when you get there is entirely your choice.

Will my Computer get Malware or Viruses by Using AdPaid?
Short answer: Possibly. Personal Computers use Operating System (OS) software to make them work. Microsoft™ has a virtual monopoly in supplying OS's. Some experts would say that they don't provide everything that you need to keep your computer safe, especially when it is connected to the internet. If you use Microsoft Windows™ then you MUST add anti-malware and anti-virus software before surfing ANY website (including AdPaid).
We use the Free Ubuntu Linux Operating System on our PC's to help avoid them getting malware and/or viruses. It is self and/or community supported, totally free, and is well worth considering.
AdPaid.com itself has never hosted malware or viruses. But, we do link to other websites that are outside of our control. You can check the latest status at Google Safebrowsing Page for AdPaid.
