Content Locking/Paid to Upload Review – Legit or Scam

UploadOcean is a PPD (paid per download) site that allows you to upload your files and share them on your website, blog or social media accounts. When a person visits the site and downloads one of your files, you’ll earn money. Depending on which country downloads one of your files, you’ll earn $2 to $21 per 1000 downloads.

  3. You can’t hotlink images or files for people to download.
  4. Downloads from a proxy server aren’t counted as a legitimate download.
  5. You’ll only earn money on completed downloads. If a person stops the download in the middle this won’t count as a download.
  6. Any file that has been uploaded and hasn’t received a view or download in 30 days will be deleted from the servers.
  7. If anyone reports that you’ve uploaded a file that isn’t yours, it will immediately be removed from the server and your account will be banned.


  1. The site will authorize and pay you 2 to 3 times only. After this, the company stops paying you for your work.  This is a total scam to get people to come here and download files.
  2. The site contains malware. The site is owned by people who prefer warez and worse. The software the company downloads on people’s computer is harmful and dangerous. Instead of downloading your file they will replace your files with tracking software, malware or worse. This steals people’s credit card information, spasms their computers, steals their identity, just to name a few things this site does.


This is an untrustworthy site to join and work for. They have you believing that the site is legitimate and pay. Unfortunately, the site will only pay you 2 or 3 times before they stop. That is why you’ll find so many payment proofs online. The company wants you to believe they are a legitimate paying company and it is safe to signup with them. The only thing the company is interested in is the files you upload. They can use your download links to install malware or other types of tracking software on the people’s computer that downloaded from this site.

Stay away from this site and don’t upload or even download a single file from here. The company is a scam site and uses your files to gain credit cards information from anyone who uses this site. There are plenty of upload sites online that are legitimate and will actually pay you for each download a person makes. The legitimate companies don’t try to cheat you and download malware on a person’s computer. They will give the person’s the file they request and not some warez or malware file.

    1. This site has many complaints just like yours. It will pay once or twice and then stop paying. I agree with you, it is a bad site to work for and everyone should stay away from this site and not upload your files there.
