Trubux Review – Scam or Legit? | New Bux Site


Trubux is a new paid to click program, launched on May 20, 2012. Trubux provides its users an opportunity to earn money online by viewing advertisement links. Additionally, there is a referral program in place that allow users to earn commissions from the activity of their downline (rented and direct referrals). Grid game is available to play as well. Trubux is still very new site, and as such it will be placed on our Test/New PTC sites list for a period of at least a year, counting from the official launch date.

Things we do like about Trubux.com:

Paying – Although still very new, Trubux shows proofs that they do pay. On the links below you can see payment proofs from other users:

Instant Payments – Payments are sent within seconds of request. A payout policy that members prefer the most, no more waiting for days to receive what you have rightfully earned.

Fair Affiliate System – A user can refer up to 100 new members to the site. It’s not unlimited, but in our opinion, 100 direct referrals is a solid referral base that will help you in increasing your daily earnings.

Free Worldwide Service – Trubux is internatinal PTC service, there are no any registration restrictions, individuals from all over the world are allowed to join the site and earn with it. Members are not obligated to invest and they may cashout regardless of their membership type or country.

Forum – They have a forum. In our opinion, a PTC site should have a forum. The forum is a place where members and staff can communicate with each other. Members can post their success stories or doubts, post payment proofs, share the experience that they had with the site, ask for support and stay informed about the recent changes made to the site. Usually, on the forum you can notice the first red signs if something is wrong. If members complain about non-payments or payment delays, then most likely the site is experiencing problems.

What we do not like about Trubux.com:

Unverified Paypal – For a limited time, they have enabled deposits and cashouts through Paypal. But their Paypal account is unverified.

Which is risky and Paypal may give them troubles about that. You should not run a business and accept/send payments with an unverified Paypal, specially not in the PTC industry. As their admin said, they will use Paypal for a limited period, and it may be removed anytime. If you let members to make deposits through Paypal, tomorrow they will want to cashout via Paypal as well. How they will pay those members if Paypal is disabled in the meantime? Through Payza? What about members who don’t use Payza at all? As per their Terms of service, if you’ve made purchases, you can only request an unlimited amount to be paid to the payment processor you’ve used to make the most of your purchases.

New Site – Generally, we do not recommend buying memberships on new sites (under a year old), particularly not on a bux sites. Why is that so? Well, most bux programs turn into a non-paying sites. In our opinion, it is better to wait some time until the site proves that it is stable and sustainable, rather than invest in the early phase and risk to lose your investment if the site stops paying. Be sure to test a new site if you plan to invest upfront. It is very important to do your research before doing so.

A Bux Program – Trubux can be categorized as a Bux site. Bux sites offer self sponsored ads with higher click rate compared to real ptc sites. For most bux sites, the main source of income is from selling memberships and renting referrals. Usually, at the beginning there will be sufficient income gained from members investments or rentals, and the site can pay its members without issues, but as time marches on, more and more investors will start making profits, and very likely the site will be in a situation to owe more to their members than the generated income, because usually there is no big base of advertisers that will compensate the difference in the cash flow.

Speaking of the bux model sustainability – the "bux” model have been proven many times as unsustainable. Be sure to test a new bux site and do your research if you plan to invest money. In my opinion, there is a high risk involved in such investments. Either you will get profit, or you will lose your investment if the site stop paying. Bux sites heavily relies on selling upgrades or referrals to pay members, and usually the main advertiser is the admin himself. Typically, a bux site will lack of advertising revenue, which is why they tend to collapse.

Bottom Line:

Trubux is a new PTC site, launched on May 20, 2013 and currently they are paying. More or less, they use the same business model which lead many ptc programs to their failure or forced them to change it drastically in order to survive. Consequently, some users will have their doubts about this site. They are using unverified Paypal account and it may be disabled anytime. At this point, I would say it’s risky to make deposits on Trubux via Paypal. Trubux will remain on our Test list at least until it reaches 1 year of service, if they continue to pay as now. If you decide to invest money upfront, remember to test the site on your own and do your research.
