Postloop Review

[Update August 16, 2014]

Postloop is a post and comment exchange. At Postloop you can earn by commenting on blogs and posting on forums.

I started using Postloop earlier this month and I have already been paid 6 times.

Earning money with Postloop is really easy. You can earn money by posting on forums or commenting on blogs. Postloop works on a point based system where 100 points = $5.

Blog and forum owners buy points and assign them to their respective websites and Postloop writers subscribe to the forums and post in them. Each time you post in a forum or a blog you earn points.

You can earn between 1.2-1.6 points for making one post. The amount of points you earn for a post depend on a number of factors. Which includes the current amount of points assigned to the forum and your Postloop rating.

What does it takes to Sign up ?

Postloop requires it’s writers to have decent grammar and the ability to write without making any spelling mistakes.

Signing up to Postloop is free but before you can start subscribing to forums in their directory you will have to make 10 trial posts in the Postloop portal which is a forum owned by Postlloop and a completely different website.

Signing up to the Postloop portal will help you learn how to subscribe to forums through your Postloop dashsboard.

There are a number of categories/topics available at the Postlloop portal. Make sure that you make meaningful posts which are free of grammatical and spelling mistakes and at least a 100 words in length.

In order to avoid spelling mistakes try using Google chrome as it has a built in spell checker. I don’t know if other browsers have this feature.

Once you have made 10 posts in the Postloop Portal you will have to wait a maximum of 24 hours before your account is approved. My account was approved in around 5 hours.

Can I choose the forums and blogs myself ?

You have the complete freedom to join the forums and blogs which you want to. At any time there are a number of forums and blogs available for anyone to join and new forums and blogs are added almost on a daily basis. It is highly unlikely you will run out of blogs and forums of your choice.

How much do I earn for each post ?

I have already sort of answered it, you earn around 1.2-1.6 points per posts as an average Postloop user. It depends on your rating, as users with higher ratings earn bonus points for each post. 1.2-1.6 points mean you earn around 6 cents to 8 cents for each post/comment. Below is the amount of bonus for for higher ratings.

Rating < 4: No bonus points
Rating of 4.00 – 4.24: 0.25 bonus points per post
Rating of 4.25 – 4.49: 0.35 bonus points per post
Rating of 4.50 – 4.74: 0.50 bonus points per post
Rating of 4.75 – 4.99: 0.75 bonus points per post
Rating of 5: 1.00 bonus point per post

Minimum Cash out Limit ?

You can cash out once you have accumulated 100 points which is equal to $5. You also need to have a higher rating then the average rating of all Postloop users which at the time of writing this post is 3.73. What I have noticed is that it remains in the range of 3.7-3.8.

My current rating is 4.44. If you make quality and engaging posts you are highly unlikely to get a bad rating.

 The only way you can cash out is through Paypal. You will get paid within 24 hours of making the cash out request. I have always had the payment delivered in 5-10 hours.

Referral Program ?

They have a very nice referral program where you earn 20% of points which your referral earns or purchases on Postloop.

Accepted Countries

Writers from all countries are accepted at Postloop all they require is you to have good English writing skills

Payment Proofs

I have been paid 6 times by Postloop below is the snap shot of the latest payment proof and below it are the links to previous payment proofs.

Blog and Forum Owners

Almost all the famous blogging and forum software’s are supported by Postloop. All you have to do is upload a simple file to your server and you are ready to go. This simple file helps Postloop track the username and the post count of Postloops users active on your website.

Honestly I have not tried their services myself but I intent to use them in the near future. One thing I can guarantee is that you will get a nice amount of high quality posts for your website.

A few features that Postloop offers for forum owners include ability to revoke a member for spamming your forum, giving a low rating to members for making low quality posts and writing terms for joining your website which the writer has to agree before subscribing to your website. Below is a sample snap shot of what the terms look like to writers,

My Experience

There are 2 reasons due to which people might consider not joining Postloop. These two reasons made me delay signing up to Postloop by a week,

  1. Making 10 trial posts.
  2. Requirement of a higher rating than the average rating for making a cash out request.

Making 10 posts on the Postloop Portal was fairly easy. There were a number of categories which include TV shows, movies, web development almost a topic on everthing. And there were so many people participating in the forum all the time. So you don’t have to worry about going to a half dead forum where the latest topics are months old.

You also earn points for making these 10 trial posts. I earned 1.3 points for each of the trial posts which is 13 points = $0.65. Once I got approved I got really active on the website and reached the cash out limit in just 24 hours. There are so many stories on their forum where people have claimed to cash out in a day and some even claim to have earned $5 in a couple of hours.

I did not find the requirement of having a higher rating than the Postloop average rating to be much of a challenge. When my account got approved for the first time I got a rating of 3.8 and after that I subscribed to a number of forums and started making good length and quality posts and my rating started increasing. Below is a screen shot of my Postlloop ratings that I have received from others,

Postloop received ratings

In order to make sure that you get a good rating from website owners make sure you

  • Make quality posts.
  • Make sure your post length is greater than a 100 words.
  • Read the terms carefully before joining. Mostly they require you to upload a avatar to your profile.

I have been active on Postloop for over a month and I have found it to be a great website for making some extra cash especially if you are from the Asian origin and have decent English writing skills.

Postloop is one of the very few websites that accepts writers from all countries with a decent pay rate.

    Post Loop helps for the start but afterwards it’s useless using it as you are just going to be obsessing over getting points rather than getting active members the right way. Post Loop has a good rating system and I hope to see improvements on the system in the near future.

    • admin says:

      Agree with you there and they even mention this issue in their FAQ by saying “Postloop should not be your only source of activity, but simply a supplement to it.” If you can’t get members to sign up to your forum without paying them then may be you are in the wrong business.

    • DT says:

      I beg to disagree here, Postloop’s rating system is only as good as the criterion they make clear on their website. Plus, it is only as good as the rater who makes the ratings. and some can be very prejudiced. Still, good point on ending with noting they need to revise or improve their system the same.

    Hello there, I discovered your website by the use of Google while looking for a related subject, your web site came up, it seems good. I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

    Great article! I’ve used PostLoop in the past, and I highly recommend them! I’ve used them to start off one of my forums, and it’s a great website! I even left a testimonial on there for them. I haven’t used them recently, but I’m thinking about putting one of my forums on there again to continue using their service. It’s a great site, with a wonderful community! Highly recommended for those just starting out.

    • admin says:

      Thank you for your feedback on their services. I have only used them the other way, to make some extra cash. I have yet to use their services to buy comments. I am going to try their commenting service real soon.

  4. Angie says:

    I have used Postloop before when they first started and really liked it. I found that there were a variety of forums that I was eligible to post on. I have since lost track of posting here, but really feel the need to check them out again. I have been paid by them a few times. I would say that it was at least 4 times. Payment was always made fast and I have never had any issues with them. I would suggest someone who wants to make an easy buck or two to try this out. I have never used the service to buy comments though so I am not sure what that aspect all contains.

  5. Smithc124 says:

    Very efficiently written post. It will be valuable to anyone who usess it, as well as myself. Keep doing what you are doing i will definitely read more posts. feafegbeecddbgda

  6. Smithe917 says:

    Spot on with this writeup, I actually believe this website needs a great deal more attention. Ill probably be returning to read through more, thanks for the info! gdeedebecagkecgb

  7. ammad says:

    Postloop approval is very strict.I tried two times and rejected.I took 12 hours write 10 quality posts at postloop portal.No spelling and gramar mistakes but they rejected .I feel very bad.Any way or tips from you to approve .Can I create another account from same computer? for next attempt.

    • admin says:

      You don’t need to create another account. You can make 10 posts again in the Postloop Portal and they will check the new posts you have made there. Take your time to think before writing and after writing make sure you recheck your sentence. You could even try using an online spelling and grammar checker like this one Reverso. And make sure that the length of your post is at least 4 to 5 lines.

      • DT says:

        I am glad your experience was fair. But I have to agree with Ammad. Plus, time-wise, I attempted even more time into doing things right. Postloop can be prejudiced in its determination of people’s content, no matter how well presented. I would never recommend their site ever again.

  8. Alphonse Gabanelli says:

    PostLoop is fine if want to make peanuts per hour. For a site owner, though, it is a complete and utter waste of time and money. The success rate of forums that used the service is paltry. It is something in the single digits for forums that survived versus hundreds that went down the tubes the second they stopped paying for points. Head over to their “Testimonials & Success Stories” section of their support forum. A whooping two of them are from forum owners. Of those two, one is dead, and the other alleges it work, but they don’t have their URL set. The remaining testimonials are from writers. Many forum owners have dumped hundreds and or thousands of dollars into PostLoop content, but saw no return on that investment. The reasons are pretty clear:

    • Forums are a mature, even hyper saturated market. Garbage posts, in and of themselves, aren’t going to lure in real members. Which brings us to our next point.
    • The site owner is buying dump truck load of crap content. For every good or great PostLoop writer, there is a legion of authors that are pretty much worthless. Some have very limited (occasionally unintentionally funny) English skills, others are young people with no real life experience, there is sprinkling of washed up older writers, and armies who just grind out the minimum to mash the “post” button. It is hardly surprising as we’re talking about folks willing to work for around 6-10 cents a post.
    • It is only a matter of time before some PostLoop member will say why they are posting. Regular members know they are talking to paid posters and they jump ship. All that work put into the forum only to see it circle the drain due to one slip.
    • The forum profiles, the canned postings, and obvious forced enthusiasm comes across as fake. Anyone who is not completely new to forums and isn’t a moron can tell after spending some time there.
    • When your points are gone so is anyone from PostLoop. And regular posters are going to notice real fast that a huge percentage of “members” all suddenly stopped posting.

    From the writers side of the equation, if you want to make a few bucks from the comfort of your home, I suppose it makes sense, but it is time that could be spent earning a lot more elsewhere. If your a site owner, seriously, don’t bother. You’re just whizzing money down the drain.

  9. Francis R. says:

    PostLoop is a steaming pile of crap. You get paid 5-10¢ per post, so you’re working for many times less than minimum wage. Many of the forums are terrible and some of the forum owners are totally unreasonable in their demands. And it only takes one jackass owner rating you low to destroy your rating, so you’re walking on egg shells . Burnout rates among good content writers is epidemic at PL, even by content mill standards. That isn’t surprising, because there are better ways to make money online than this farce.

  10. Richard Monteiro says:

    Nice post! Keep updating me/us of postloop. I would appreciate if you can provide recent stats of PL though. When I last checked the testimonials, the last one was made way back in 2014. I mean it’s hardly a year back but still a significant number of days in the past.
    As for the naysayers, except for the fact their commenting skills are way ahead of our ‘times’, nothing concrete is mentioned in their ‘over a hundred words of wisdom’ imparted where else can we earn a few dollars, let alone a few cents.
    Once again, admin, an almighty thanks for the post. But please keep us updated.

    • admin says:

      I am Sorry Richard I am no longer actively participating on Postloop anymore. I just tried to log back in to my Postloop account today to get a few stats but it seems my account is suspended. I am going to be opening a ticket with Postloop and would come up with updated stats once I get my account reactivated.
