What Are People Saying About This App?
- Many people are calling the app a pyramid scheme that allows you to earn money for recruiting others to join the app. The more you go down the line the less money you can make from this app.
- People feel the owners of this app are tricking people into joining the app so they can make money from selling your data.
- Once you come close to earning the 2100 points needed to cash out every 30 days the app slows down and makes it hard to reach this goal.
- The company only allows you to withdraw 25% of your earning every 30 days.
- The company takes $0.25 from your earnings as a processing fee.
- Many people are angry that the company only allows you to withdraw 25% of your earning every 30 days. That means the next month if you want to withdraw your earnings, you’ll need to have 2100 or more points in your account. You will never be able to withdraw all the funds that you’ve earned from the app.
- People don’t like the idea that the company will only give them 25% of their earnings and they feel the company is playing games bidding their time. They are saying that the company is not making the amount of money they claim to be made, otherwise, they would allow you to withdraw your total earning from the site.
- If you have earned a large sum of money the company is not sending your payments on time. They are holding them back and taking longer and longer to send you an amount that is over $10. There are some members who were able to cash out $25 or more from the app. These people did not receive their payment and when they did receive a payment it took over 45 days for the company to send them their money.
This might be a legitimate app and the company is paying people. However, the amount of money the company sends out for the work that has been completed is nothing compared to what a person has actually earned from the app. This company is holding 75% of your earning each month and will only release 25% of your earning every 30 days. There are many unhappy members that feel the company is not upfront about the payment process and also feel the company should not hold onto the majority of their earning each month. You can find many $5 payment proofs online, but you will not find higher value payment proofs from this company. I personally would not join an app like this and do not recommend that others join this app. The company is basically collecting all your data and making money by selling it off to companies who are willing to pay for the information. There are a lot more survey apps that you can join and be paid for your time. Other companies don’t hold onto 75% of your earning every month.
1 thought on “Bigtoken App Review 2019: Legit or Scam”
The app can pay 25% of cash only because they don’t sell the data to anyone yet. So they pay the money from their own pocket, as they say.
It would bankrupt them if they must pay 50$ to each user’s PayPal.
