    Payout Request Format or example

    Payout Request Format or example

    Recently, a discussion on members being banned for 
    rude payout requests has prompted this blog post. 
    (Am at my wits' end to understand - when you do all the hard work, 
    why throw it away by being rude? My brain couldnt compute)

    I believe most communication that seems rude in nature 
    is not always intentional but a lack of language skills.

    I was also asked - is it fair or right for admins to do this?

    Unfortunately, it is an unregulated line of business 
    and up to the admins.

    We can compare it to the restaurant business 
    that has - Rights of Admission.

    If you misbehave, you can be asked to leave.
    Not just behaviour, clothing etc., we know what is allowed and what is not.

    Therefore, Yes, being rude can make an admin ban, 
    even if you don't think it is fair.  

    After speaking to a few admins, and seeing the messages,
    here are some common messages that are considered impolite (borderline rude):

    1. Pay Me
    2. Admin, I want payment

    3. Blah, Blah (criticize) and then say by the way, my payment is due …

    4. Repeated reminders

    5. Why are you taking so long to pay????? 

    6. Usage of too many question marks and exclamations … 

    7. Sending repeated tickets without checking
    responses from admin in emails (Yes, omg, there are several)

    And, you may say that you have been paid by some admins 
    (even with these types of messages).
    Thank your stars for such admins who have a broader 
    understanding of language issues, the world, culture etc.

    My point is - why take that chance or give a reason to be banned
    when your hardwork and money is at stake?

    Here is a sample payout request format you can use when requesting payment

    (Red text - the basic components it should contain)


    Dear Admin or Hello Admin (usage of names is also ok, leave it up to you) or
    Greetings of the day, Admin.

    Giving Thanks 

    Thank you for giving me a wonderful opportunity to earn.  

    (yes, thank them - it is a no brainier- they work 24/7 
    to keep their site running for you to earn

    Newsflash - If you think surfing is a rocket science (niche) skill! 
    and justifies the above messages ...

    You should seek counseling and medical help.

    I mean this in the nicest possible way, understand the skill level needed to surf.  
    Very very important!

    Suggestions if any (optional)

    Good opportunity to showcase yourself 
    when you suggest something for the site. 

    Actual payout request

    As per the requirements or T&C, I have reached payout 
    and wish to request payout to my

    Provide more than one option is better.

    Sign Off

    Many thanks for your support.

    Have a great / wonderful / awesome day ahead.

    Best Wishes

    Now, let's put it all together and this is how it looks.

    Dear Admin

    Thank you for giving me an opportunity to earn.
    Much appreciated.  I like many of the features here like the co-op and the team surfing etc.
    Please implement Login Spotlight if possible at a reasonable price.
    I noticed that $1 works on many sites.

    Please note, i have successfully reached the payout threshold of $15.

    My preferred payment processor is WISE or Paypal

    My email id is

    CURRENCY: (local currency) - atleast rule in my country. 

    Wishing you a wonderful day and a great week ahead.

    Best wishes

    Store it as a template and COPY. PASTE. CHANGE as REQD. REPEAT.

  • Today, I would like to pay my respects to Misty Hits and Standout TE.  
    Every Traffic Exchange in its own unique way has a heart and a soul.

    Misty Hits 
    Although, I did'nt get much time to surf there -
    when i could surf, i realized that this modest TE, owned by Chetan Midda 

    offered a lot of promise.  With some much needed love and care,
    this TE had the potential to grow.  

    Alas, it was cut short - 2022 to 2024. 

    My brief interaction with Chetan, showed me that he is an excellent surfer
    when he is not busy and a great team player.

    Please accept my condolences for Misty Hits, my friend.  

    And, Thank you for the traffic!


    Standout TE - Truly a TE steeped in Gothic culture!
    Show me a TE that has as much spunk, so complex and exotic
    at the same time, as Standout TE.

    True to its name - Those crisp and deep creatives that let you experience more than just traffic! 
    Elizabeth Ramsek, you are an artist!

    Popular saying - Good art need not necessarily mean good business! 
    Thank you for the traffic!
    And, may its soul rest in peace!

  • Traffic Exchange (TE) Obituary and why not?

    Before I join any more TE's, I would like to take a moment to 
    record the sudden demise or disappearance of a few TE's
    that have happened since my brief tenure online.

    Pay my respects via Traffic Exchange Obituary posts. 
    A remembrance!

    When a new TE launches, they are promoted with grand pomp 
    and show for days and weeks until a new one comes along.  

    Then, as time passes, some make it, some sail into the sunset.   

    I am a big believer in closure.
    Through these TE obituary posts, I wish to pay my respects.

    Join me in saying good bye! 
    Stay tuned for the upcoming TE Obituaries.

  • Am i contributing to the growth of a ‘Ponzi’ business?

    When i speak to my friends about joining me in the TE business,
    am always faced with a question that i can't answer, and,
    the happenings over the last couple of weeks have got me thinking -
    Am i contributing to the growth of ‘Ponzi’ businesses?

    I invested in 6 lifetime memberships last year and multiple yearly upgrades
    because i sincerely want to believe that I am not in a Ponzi business.

    However, the incidents over the last few weeks:

    a) Launching a spate of multiple sites by same owners 
    b) decrease in commission percentages after members upgrades.
    c) adhoc changes in surf rewards after members
    d) Adding so many payment processors as options and then eventually
    delaying payment by asking the member to have a specific payment processor.
    Fully knowing that all payment processors are not present in all countries.

    Have got me re-thinking that maybe my friends are right.  
    They say, we cannot take away ‘Ponzi’ from this business!

    For those who dont know the meaning -
    An investment swindle in which some early investors
    are paid off with money put up by later ones that leads to encouraging more and bigger risks

    And, obviously the next truth - Admin and sites dont live forever. 
    And, the final truth - There is no legal remedy if you lose your investment,
    just bad feelings that you have to get over in time.

    I kept asking myself  - would i take part in something like this in the offline world
    where there are legal remedies.

    Is it ethical what is being done?
    Should'nt the days of upgrade be refunded to members, once said changes are made.

    Will this discourage future members from upgrading? 
    Am i promoting the right sites?
    In the race to score upgrades, are admins in over their heads
    and thus forcing these decisions.

    I have already deleted my account from a couple
    of sites that kept changing the rules, irrespective of the comms that were there.  

    As a principle (online as well as offline), i will never be a part of shifty businesses.  

    Admins supporting these businesses by giving them prime real-estate
    on their websites need to ask themselves, what are they supporting?

    There are 2 reasons why it is bad for business:
    1.  The sites don't really have more membership than the sites
    providing the real estate - even if FREE.
    (maybe in the past, it had)

    2. You risk bringing down your site and bugging your members
    when those sites go down or are under maintenance.

    l don't believe many TE's are like a ‘Ponzi’ Scheme.
    I do believe the actions of a few are contributing to the
    overall degradation of the industry as a whole.

    Am leaving the topic here, and it is open to discussion:
    1. Is it ethical to change the T&C time and time again?
    2. If yes, then, should members with an upgrade in effect be refunded for the days post the changes made as it violates what was on offer?  
    Would you tolerate it in an offline world, where there is a legal system that can address the issue.
    3. And finally, are we contributing to making the TE business more Ponzi …
    than ever before!


    Disclaimer: I am looking for a healthy discussion on this topic.  
    No intention to cause harm or distress to anyone.  
    No animals were harmed during the writing of this post.

    My keyboard took the brunt of it!

    Please feel free to share your views and experiences.

    Finally, my humble request - please refrain from using foul language or naming
    names or sites when sharing any incidents with respect to the above.

    Help me convince my friends that the TE Business is
    legitimate and not Ponzi.

    Dear Friends,
    Sometimes (not always) direct link can show someone else's Ref Name,
    rather than your Name like the example below and you would'nt know about it.

    Suggested approach is to use the splashpage link
    that doesnt have this drawback instead of direct signup links.

    Normally, when i see such anomalies, i tend to inform members
    in a PM or maybe via an email, cause i can share a screenshot.

    However, that doesnt help many who are probably losing
    their potential referrals and are not even aware about it.
    Will use this space to share such examples. 
    Hope it will be helpful.

    11 DEC 23


    PS: Admin can fix this issue if aware that it is happening. 
    Many times, they may not be aware of this.

    If the title caught your attention,
    dont stop now, continue reading,
    it can be very rewarding!
    (best to keep your head out of the gutter, though)😄

    Am not on the fence with this one anymore, nothing to lose!
    Only more cash and advertising to add to your kitty 😊

    Lots of great advertising options with 5 level referral rewards!
    Win advertising C/B/T for being the top daily bone collector. 
    Probably the site offers lots more which needs more exploration.

    Each bone has a value of $0.0001,
    which means it takes ten thousand bones
    to equal a dollar. 10,000 x 0.0001 = $1.

    And, voila, you can convert this into $$.  

    There are plenty of sites to collect bones
    and some of my favourite sites are listed below.
