To me, MazBux looks fishy right from the very start. The site looks like it has been hastily put together and the landing page doesn’t really give much information about what the site offers or even that is supposed to be a way to earn money.
Another element of this is the fact that there are lots of spots for people to buy ads on the pages, but few actual ads up.
This offers a pretty big indication that this site isn’t particularly popular, which doesn’t bode well for its potential as a money-earning tool.
One aspect of MazBux that I find particularly concerning is this little section in the terms and conditions:
The idea that the company will permanently suspend your account and try and get your PayPal permanently blocked is pretty aggressive, especially as someone who opens a claim with PayPal is trying to get money back that they felt was taken inappropriately.
This means that you don’t have much protection if you do buy anything, which is always something to be concerned about.
What Is It?
To say MazBux is vague is a major understatement. The site doesn’t teach users anything about what they are supposed to doing. From the banner at the top it’s evident that people get paid per click and per ref. click (which presumably means referral click), but honestly that doesn’t mean all that much.
As far as I can tell, the view ads section of the site is supposed to be where you earn money. However, when you click on it, you get a page that looks like this with lots more boxes going down:
It’s really not clear what any of this means and the only way to figure it out is through trial and error. That isn’t something you want from a site that is supposed to be earning you money.
When I clicked on the first link it took me to an ad (basically just an ad for MaxBux) and made me stay on the page for 30 seconds then type in a captcha code. That counted as one click and earned me a grand total of 10 cents (as the box advertised).
So basically, you earn money by clicking on those ads and staying on the page for the specified length of time – which tends to be 30 seconds. Not only do you have to stay on the page, but that page also has to be in focus, so you can’t click off and do other things while you wait for the timer to count down.
Almost all of the ads on the site have the same payout, so you would earn an average of around 10 cents for 30 seconds. That is $0.20 per minute and $12 an hour.
Now granted, $12 per hour doesn’t sound too bad, but you wouldn’t make that in practice. For one thing, that figure doesn’t take into account the time it takes to go between one ad and the next.
More importantly, that figure assumes that there will always be ads to click on.
There won’t be.
To do an hour’s worth of ads on this site you would need there to be roughly 120 ads available. The webpage lists 22 and you would probably have to wait a while before getting access to anymore after that.
After all, the site itself is devoid of advertisements, which is an indication that it doesn’t have all that many clients.
Another thing that the site doesn’t make clear at all is that to cash out you need to refer ten people to the website.
Trying to refer that many people to a site as low quality as MazBux would be extremely challenges. Additionally, if you are using this site in the first place, you probably don’t have any training in how to effectively get people to sign up for things or even to click on links.
With MazBux you really are thrown in the deep end and your potential to earn money is basically nothing. I honestly doubt that anyone has earned money with the company, despite the claims of payouts that the company has splashed around.
Earning money online shouldn’t be confusing and it shouldn’t be guesswork, but most places seem to forget that! They make ease of learning secondary to their advertising to make it seem easy.
So, on this site I offer an email course that teaches a newbie friendly, alternative way to make money online. Unlike MazBux this is an approach that you have control of and that you can grow and develop over time into a legitimate business.
