MyLot Review – Legit or Scam

MyLot is a site that some consider a personal weblog site, others say it’s more of a social media site, and some say it is a GPT site or a paid to write for the site. When in fact it is actually all of these and has a bit of everything for everyone. You are not actually paid to write your weblogs on the site, however, you do earn money on the site for interacting with the other members.

How to Join MyLot:

  1. You’ll need to register on the site. The name that you use as your username or screen name can’t be changed.
  2. Verify your email address after submitting your registration form.
  3. When you first log onto the site, it is necessary to fill in your profile.
  4. Upload an avatar for the site, fill in your PayPal email address, tell people a bit about yourself, and if you have a website, you can add this to your profile.

How Does the Site Work?

  1. On the dashboard of the site is where it records your activities.
  2. You’ll find the number of discussions you’ve written, how many times you’ve responded to another discussion, and how many comments you’ve made. Furthermore, you can see how many people have liked your discussion or comment, how many people follow your account and how many people you follow.
  3. If you wish to type or add a discussion on the site, you’ll need to use the “Discus” tab at the top of the page. You’ll enter your title, add your discussion, add the tags, and upload an image if you wish. Submit the discussion and it is immediately posted on the site.
  4. Just keep in mind the site has a few rules about discussion and what is allowed and not allowed. Like any weblog site or site that pays you for being there, you’ll need to follow the rules; otherwise, your discussion is deleted.
  5. Keep in mind; you won’t earn money by posting discussions on the site. The site doesn’t pay you to write.
  6. However, if you go to the Explore table on your dashboard, you’ll find all the other discussion on the site. Here is where you can read the other members, discussion. You’ll need to respond to some discussion in order to make friends on the site. However, once again, you don’t earn from your responses, comments, or even likes.

How to Earn Money on MyLot?

  1. MyLot will only credit your account if another member responds to your discussion, likes a discussion or comment you’ve made,. Furthermore, you’ll earn money once a member comment back on one of your responses.
  2. MyLot is an interactive site and the only way for you can earn money on the site is through the actions of other members.
  3. That’s why it’s so important for you to make friends, go to their discussion, leave a response and like. Afterward, the member will do the same on one of your discussions.
  4. MyLot also has an offer section. By completing offers in this section, you’ll increase your earnings on the site. Unfortunately, some countries don’t have offers, therefore, they can’t earn extra money from the site.

How Does the Site Pay?

  1. Around the 10th to the 15th of the month, you’ll notice at the top of the screen $$ PayDay $$ instead of MyLot. This is the day MyLot pays all members whose account exceed $5.
  2. There is no need to request payment from MyLot. This is automatic and the money will be deposited into your PayPal account.
  3. It’s important that you have your PayPal account email filled in on your profile page if you want to be paid.
  4. It is possible to leave your PayPal information blank and let the money in your account accumulate. Then, when you’re ready to be paid, add your PayPal information to your profile. The next payday, MyLot will deposit your funds into your account.
  5. The pay period starts on the first of each month and ends at midnight, MyLot time, on the last day of the month. If you’ve accumulated enough money in your account, MyLot automatically will send your payment within 10 to 15 days later.
  6. You can always find out your account balance at the top of your dashboard.


MyLot is a legitimate site that pays you money for interacting on the site. However, you can only earn money on the site through the actions of the other site member. MyLot won’t pay you to write, comment or like a discussion on the site. However, if one of your discussions receives responses, comments, and likes, then you earn money through MyLot.

What I Think of The Site:

  1. MyLot is a good site if you love writing person weblogs and sharing them with other members.
  2. The site is a very slow earning site, and many people find it difficult to earn money there.
  3. What people don’t understand about MyLot, is that MyLot won’t pay you to write.
  4. Many new members try to write one discussion after another, thinking they will earn money from this site. This is what they don’t seem to understand. Their discussion will only earn money if another member reads them to leave a response, or even likes them.
  5. MyLot is time-consuming and you can spend a lot of time on the site each day. Unfortunately, each day you won’t earn much unless another member likes what you’ve written.
  6. You’ll be lucky if you can earn $0.30 a day on the site. This takes a lot of time to comment and respond to another discussion.
  7. Many people have been on MyLot of years. Therefore, they have a large following and can earn from the site. Some members can make $1.00 or more a day from interacting with other members on the site. This doesn’t happen often and I wouldn’t expect to earn $30 a month from the site. Realistically, you might earn $5 to $10 from the site each month. However, you’ll spend a lot of time earning this money.
  8. I enjoy MyLot to read and pass a bit of time on the site. However, once you start on the site it is hard to limit your time. That is the beauty of the site, it has a lot to offer you if you have the time to spend there.

  1. I was recommended this website by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post was written by you or somebody else. This is a wonderful site! Thanks!


  2. We stumbled over here coming from a different web page and thought I might check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to finding out about your web page again.


  3. This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and the information you supply, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Great job.


  4. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile


  5. I simply wanted to thank you very much once again. I do not know the things that I could possibly have achieved in the absence of the actual tactics shared by you concerning that problem. It absolutely was a very frustrating circumstance in my circumstances, nevertheless observing a new expert approach you solved that took me to leap for gladness. Now I’m happier for this assistance and as well, you should know what a powerful job you were accomplishing teaching some other people through the use of your web page. Most probably you’ve never come across all of us.


  6. This is actually a very helpful article filled with a lot of information. I am happy that you have shared this helpful information with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.


  7. I signed up on myLot three years ago. I have made the decision to leave the site as of April 1st, 2018. Once I am paid for my March payment (around the 15th of April), my account will be locked. I have deleted more than 1200 discussions.

    Last fall there were issues with pop-up/redirect ads when using a smartPhone or iPhone or iPads. The problem became unbearable for some, and several left the site with because of issues affecting their devices. I did not leave at that time, but tried to give the benefit of the doubt, even without much response from the site admin re: what was happening.

    Within the last week or 10 days or so, this problem has returned with a vengeance. This time the pop-up/redirect ads are nearly immediately happening once I get to the site, and now are coming with sound on the ad exclaiming, “Congratulations!” and taking me to a site claiming that you have won something. (The ads I received (10 within 7 minutes) today all claimed that I had won a Samsung device or something from Amazon.) Many others are claiming the same issues, and are reluctant to continue using the site.

    That being said, this site has always paid me according to their promises. I have made many “friends” here, some of whom I hear from “old school” style–handwritten letters, cards, postcards, telephone calls. Technology is a wonderful tool to bring people together, and myLot is just one of the many ways it has done so.

    However, there comes a time when it’s time to move on. I am one that is doing so, but there are many more who are signing on as new community members. Best wishes to all who decide that myLot is home.


    1. It is a fun site to pass your time on. However, it can be very time consuming and the earnings are so low. If I had to deal with this on the site, I’d leave too. I think that is one reason I use an ad blocker on all sites. I hate pop up ads and being redirected to a crappy site that claims I’m a winner.

  8. I joined Mylot 8 years back and this will always be my favourite site. I made many friends across the globe on there and I learned about their cultures and traditions. I can spend a whole day on Mylot as this is a fun place to be. I love going through the different discussions to know about others opinions and also share my own. What I like the most about this site is that you can talk about anything on there. The members are also very helpful. If you interact with others on a daily basis then you can easily reach the minimum payout. I have earned many times and looking forward to getting another payment soon. If you want to have fun and earn at the same time then Mylot is the best place to be.


  9. If I am not mistaken, this is the first online site that paid me. I joined this site since 2005. I treat it as a place like my personal blog, where I can discuss almost anything with others and get responses too. It is also a good place where I can learn and interact with others, as there are so many topics around, and I can also find like-minded people more easily there. I get addicted to myLot easily when I dive in, as you can easily hop from discussion to discussion, and it’s really hard to limit my time spending there. I agree that if one is merely looking to earn money, it might not be a good place for that, as many complain that it’s earning very slow there. I am happy if I can make 20 cents a day there.

    I recommend this site for those who like to write, read and share, and at the same time earn a little bit money. As you said, myLot has always been paying automatically every month once we have reached the minimum payout. It’s really a legit and promising site.


    1. Many people enjoy this site because they can write their personal weblogs and post them online. This is an easy way to write online and not have to worry about maintaining a blog or website.
