I was cash crate and cashed out only once before they shut down. It's too bad that Earning Station is closed down now and I hope there will be more and better paid to click sites to come up in their places. I think the nature of PTC sites is such that doesn't lend to them always staying open or being the most reliable. For me the best online earnings site has been amazon mturk so far in terms of the fastest way to make income. Plus with the amazon name behind them I don't see them closing down anytime soon.

I was accepted to Amazon Turk but decided against it when they asked for my social security number before I could even start working.  And then if you read the fine print any 10-99 will come from the individual that sends out the job not Amazon.  SO they pass your social security number on to them.  And contrary to what it says on the site the 1099 goes out if you earn $600 not $10,000.  Heck if you could make $10,000 before you had to turn it in nobody would be paying income tax.

Then upon further reading it is like this site where you can do the work and then they can reject your work or answers and you do not get paid.  I still find if laughable they say at the beginning of the survey there are no right or wrong answers but then they can reject your answers if they do not like the way you answer the question.  So obviously there ARE right and wrong answers.

That is what turned me off to the Mturk opportunity when I was looking into it a few years ago.  I don't want to give out my SSN.  There are other earning sites that I'm a member of that don't ask for that piece of personal information.  I'm comfortable with what I've been doing.

I started earning online 18 years ago and I can't count the number of sites I used that shut down, but Fusioncash is my backbone money maker that supports anything else I want to try.

If you go over $600 you will have to give it to this site.  I have provided it to one site that I went over on.  That would not be a big deal. But from what I gathered Amazon Turk gives the social to the person actually paying.  So anybody who puts a job on Amazon Turk would get your SS# if they ask for it. 

So then you would need to go over $600 with each contributor or even $1 if they choose to turn it in.  They can if they pay you.

And they were saying you have to make over $10,000 before it has to be turned in which did not make sense because that is not true.  Too much just did not add up so I opted against it.

I wonder why they all are closing? Probably the owners take advantage of the companies ? I hope you all are able to cash out before it's too late

A lot of sites have been shutting down lately. Survey spot shut down not very long ago. I was able to cash out a few weeks before hand but they never even sent my payment. I emailed twice. Hopefully fusion cash never shuts down.

I would be shocked if FusionCash shut down.  It has earned my trust through the years, and it is the only site that I have been faithful to on a daily basis.  Long live FusionCash!

FC has not been my top earning site for about a year now (ever since all my survey options were revoked). I still try every day, but there are just no offers and TAP does not DQ credit me. Cashcrate was my secondary site before they shut down. I still do Inbox Dollars. I started Treasure Trooper after Cashcrate shut down and I have already earned over $140. Cashout threshold is $20 and they do PayPal, usually get around the same time of month as FC.

As far as Get Paid To sites to finance my other online activities, I have never found anything that even comes close to Fusioncash, so I don't spend time I could use here.

Never heard of it.  I'm using inbox and swagbucks.  These three sites are enough to keep me busy.  Hope we don't lose them too.
