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.
Referral Program ?
They have a very nice referral program where you earn 20% of points which your referral earns or purchases on Postloop.
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,
There are two ways to get posts on your website. One, by buying points directly through Postloop and two, by earning points on Postloop as a Writer and then assigning them to your website. Below is the price list if you are looking to buy points,
50 Points for $6
100 Points for $11
150 Points for $16
250 Points for $25
500 Points for $49
1,000 Points for $95
2,500 Points for $225
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,
- Making 10 trial posts.
- 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,
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.
