  • I decided to let some time pass by and see if I would be paid anything for my efforts, so a month later ( October 14, 2007) I check my account by logging onto epinions
  • After researching it I found out that the link was removed a few months back and they have not re added the option
  • I love Epinions as a user because they have reviews on an extensive line of products (including electronics, cosmetics and clothing ) but I would never write another review for them since I did not get paid for the New Balance reviews that I contributed

      Epinions is a website that allows users to write reviews about products that they have already used and be paid for their opinion. How payment works is a bit weird for this site, they give you (as a reviewer) a percentage of their profits for the month based on how many reviews you write and how effective your review was in helping others decide to buy the item that you reviewed. If your review does not sell the item to the user then you will not be paid and what this means for the average user most of your reviews will get you any

      pay from Epinions.com. Just to explore my options I gave their system a shot last month (on September 14, 2007) and I reviewed three pairs of New Balance athletic sneakers which I personally loved.

      Once I wrote the review I started to get a lot of emails from moderators on the site who had reviewed my review and suggested that I give the product more stars( a higher rating ) and then notify them when I had re rated the product and in exchange I would receive a better rating as a user meaning the review could be ...


      • paid . I did not do this because I did not feel the shoes were perfect and I did not what to give them a 5 star rating if they did not deserve 5 stars so I did not improve the initial rating I gave the items .I decided to let some time pass by and see if I would be paid anything for my efforts, so a month later ( October 14, 2007) I check my account by logging onto epinions.com and there is still a balance of $0.00 and I have not been paid for any of the reviews
        that I contributed to their website. I spend a good amount of time and effort

        The website also claims to pay you for referring other users to their site but the referral link is nowhere to be found. After researching it I found out that the link was removed a few months back and they have not re added the option. I love Epinions as a user because they have reviews on an extensive line of products (including electronics, cosmetics and clothing ) but I would never write another review for them since I did not get paid for the New Balance reviews that I contributed.
