VolKno Review – Legit or Scam

VolKno is a site you can join and express your opinions on content that was created for televisions, movies, TV shows, games, and music. Unfortunately, this site only works with people living and residing in the United States. The site feels like traditional methods such as focus groups and surveys aren’t getting the point across and they are boring. The site makes it easy for you to give your feedback and be paid.

How to Join:

  1. You only can create an account on the site if you’re a US resident.
  2. Go to the site and enter your email address and password.
  3. Create your account and confirm the information.
  4. Fill in your profile information, which includes your street address, zip code, country, and state.
  5. In order to work on this site, you’ll receive a verification code in your mail. The site mails this to your home address you’ve entered.
  6. Once you receive the letter in the mail, go to the site and enter your verification code. This is your PINS code to cash out and receive your gift card.
  7. This has to be completed before you can work on the site.

How To Earn Money:

  1. The company credits flow points to your account. For every 1000 flow points, you’ll earn $1.
  2. When you first register and verify your home address, you’ll need to complete your online profile. You’ll earn 600 flow points when this is completed.
  3. Now you start watching video trailers and rating them. When you first watch the trailers you can earn 40 to 45 flow points for watching, rating, and commenting on each trailer.
  4. You’ll need to give a review on the trailer you watched. The review is on the trailer and not what you think the movie should be.
  5. You may talk about editing, the music, content, if the spoiler gave too many details, not enough details and if it was boring or not.
  6. You’ll need to rate the trailer from 1 to 10.
  7. As soon as you’ve gained 2000 flow points in your account, it’s now possible to unlock other rating options that can earn you extra flow points.

How Does the Company Pay?

  1. The company pays for Amazon Gift cards.
  2. You can receive a $5 gift card once your account has accumulated 5000 flow points.
  3. In order to cash out your gift card, you’ll need to enter your PINS code. The PINS code was sent to you in the mail.
  4. The company has $5, $20, $50, and $100 gift cards for you to redeem.

Conclusion:

This is a legitimate website to work on and they pay you with Amazon Gift Cards. However, a few people never received their PINS code in the mail. The site doesn’t always answer your emails requesting them to mail you your pins code. However, this only happens now and then and a few people don’t receive their codes in the mail. You must be a US residence and have a mailing address in the United States in order to work on this site. Unfortunately, this site is rather new so there’s not a lot of information about the site. The site has a high trust rating and people on different forums have supplied proof of payment and shown the gift cards they received.

If you want to sign up for this site, I’d suggest that you wait for your PINS code to arrive in the mail before starting to work. If you don’t receive the code within a week or so, contact the site and request a new code be mailed to you. Otherwise, don’t waste your time on the site because you can’t cash out if you don’t have the PINS code for your account.
