    I started on Fiverr last month and made some money, really happy about that.

    This month I decided to expand my services to SEOClerks, did that today, and to other such sites.

    However, apart from Fiverr and SEOClerks, all the other clones are suspect as far as legitimacy goes.

    So I'm here to ask about Gigbucks, as I'm sure there's people from BHW that are on there...

    Is Gigbucks still "alive?" Meaning, do they still pay, is there buyers there? And if they are, do they payout to Paypal?

    Thanks...

    i wouldn't recommend it at all, i needed to chase down the owner to get my last payment and it wasn't yesterday, so maybe the site isn't even around anymore, i'd suggest to stick to fiverr, buying power on the clones are close to non-existent, seoclerks sucks the least, at least that's what is getting suggested lately when it comes to fiverr alternatives

    Right. Thanks a lot for the response man. I really appreciate that. You saved me time, so you saved me money, so I owe you one :p

    Tell me, there must be at least 1 or 2 more clones that are legit.

    Do you know of any?

    I'd be happy to have at least 5 fiverr-like sites all together to spread my services on.

    not really, i only have gigs on fiverr, but i'm not actively doing that either, my gigs are as old as fiverr, they'd require some update, i'm just delivering the orders i get maybe twice in every leap year lol
    but others may help you out with more up to date info about which clones are worth a try nowadays

    If your gig is good I guarantee you will get sales on MyCheapJobs. I personally create a twitter account for every gig posted and set that twitter account up in a bot to chase down potential buyers. I have many sellers making full time incomes now on MyCheapJobs

    Well, I've been on Blackhatworld long enough, and that site, your site I guess, is being called a scam far too much by far too many people...

    I can't risk it. Sorry.

    Right. That's not good. I've already decided to forget about that site...

    Thanks.

    Anyone knows of a Legit Fiverr and SEOClerks alternative??

    Thanks.

    Nothing personal by the way. It's just like I do with any site I'm considering. I read about it, google, BHW, etc, and arrive to a decision. I could be wrong, maybe all the complainers are actually scammers and people that broke the TOS of your site or whatever...

    That's exactly what happened. I answer all tech support questions within 8 hours and BAN scammers and sellers that don't deliver. When I ban a seller they sometimes threaten to spread lies about the site. There are similar "complaints" about Fiverr and SeoClerks.... it is just the nature of the biz

    Well, you seem all right. Makes sense.

    I may give it a shot.

    Besides, if we have any problems, which we shouldn't, I can always find you, or find you here, and resolve them. I mean, I've been seeing you being active and promoting your site on many threads, so I know it's not a dead site.

    Thanks.

    You can get a lot of sales on MyCheapJobs pretty easily. The problem is getting paid. Oh, and my gigs weren't ones that broke the TOS of other sites. I was told to fuck off by the owner when asked for my money so I'd steer clear of it.

    That looks like a half finished site. I wouldn't trust it.
    They haven't even completed the pages in the footer links:

    If they are that lazy, I don't imagine them making payments on time.

    Is mycheapjobs com still alive too? For the past two days I have been unable to log into my account after requesting to withdraw my earnings on my account. I sent email to the owner the email bounced.

    Anyone having the same experience?
