      Being upgraded is so much better. You get refferals and you get lower payouts. The admin is a very friendly guy. Would recommend!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      It takes a very long time, but you can earn a little bit

      ====What's the Idea?====

      Earn money for just clicking on adverts. As simple as that.

      ====Sounds Too Good To Be True====

      To be honest, it is. Yes it's easy just to click on the ads and let them stay open for the 10-30 seconds to claim the cash, but the cash in question is only about 0.25p. This can vary though from 0.2 - 1p.

      ====Any Other Earning Options?====

      Yes, there's a paid to sign up section, which basically pays you to join other websites. There's also a paid survey section, but as yet, I've not seen any surveys on the page, just an unpaid advert. Cashback Corner is just another page offering you the chance to join other website, but this is the page where the most money can be made - pounds at a time instead of fraction of pennies. And there's also the Jackpot Game, where you gamble with your earnings so far. If you win, you win more, if you lose, it'll cost you. Oh yes, and there's a running click competition. Basically, when you're clicking through the ads on the site, there's a banner saying "next winner in XX clicks" and if you win, you earn one whole penny!!!!!!
      Away from the website itself, you receive paid-to-click emails. This is basically just an advert sent to you to click on. It works on the same principle as the ads on the site.

      ====Referral Scheme?====

      Yes there is a chance to refer your friends and family. You can email them with a link, or if you have a website, you can create a banner on the site. There are six levels of referrals, ranging for 10% - 1% of their earnings, depending on the level. Level 1 offers the highest referral rate.

      ====How Do They Pay?====

      There are three options here. You can receive £3 via PayPal, £5 Amazon voucher or a cheque for £10. They aim to pay within 7 days of you making a payment request.

      ====Ah, But Do They Pay?====

      Yes. I've had two cheques from them, both for £10, so I can honestly say they do pay out via cheque. I've not requested the other methods.

      ====Is It Worth It?====

      Not really. I've been a member for about 6 years now and only had the two cheques I've mentioned. I have just over £2.20 in my account at the moment. Today I had three paid to click ads on the site and received the same number in my inbox - a grand total 1.25p. Admittedly I only have three referrals and I imagine if you had lots, your earnings would be much higher. I also only use the paid to click section and emails. So again, if you used the other sections of the site, again you could potentially earn much more.

      ====Over All====

      If you have the patience of a saint and can stick with this site, you will get paid. However, if you're looking for quick cash now, you'll be badly disappointed.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        small fish in a long journey.

        Archerfish.co.uk is a UK based website which provides a range of reward scheme. It mixes paid to click, paid survey, paid email and cash back styles in one.

        Sign up

        The site is very easy to use and has two classified menus for members and advertisers. To sign up as a member you need to be located in the UK and Ireland. For signing up you need to fill in a registration form that includes your email, username and password, etc. Then you will get paid 25 pence.

        How does it work?

        As a member you have a few ways below to make money so far.

        Paid to click------ you have to log in once every 24 hours to click 'paid to click' options and earn 0.25 pence or 0.20 pence per link or banner you click. These ads usually take 10 or 15 seconds and there are about 3 or 4 ads daily.

        Paid email------according to your interest archerfish sends paid emails to your email box daily which you better to open as soon as possible. Leave them much longer some of the email links will expire. Same as paid to click reward, these emails are about 0.25 pence or 0.20 pence per link.

        Cash back----- similar to other cash back websites you can shop or sign up through the links providing by Archerfish and get some rewards according the offer description.

        Paid survey----- you can click the link at the left side of the site and be leaded to opinion surveys website. Every time you complete a survey you get a chance to be a winner of their prize draw.

        You can refer your friends and receive a proportion of their earnings whenever they click on paid links. You can also upgrade your account for a fixed yearly fee then receive continuous random referrals from the site.

        How to get paid?

        You have five ways to redeem your rewards: PayPal, minimum £3; Amazon certificate voucher, minimum £5; cheque, minimum £10; these redemptions will take 7 days to be claimed. You can also get traffic credits at Jackpot Hits or redeem your earnings for advertising on Archerfish.

        Personal experience

        Last April in 2009 I came across Archerfish in a review site. To me getting paid to click and read ad was a new thing. So I decided to join up and see what it was about. Before too long I found it was not as exciting as I thought. The website didn't have many ads to click. In general my daily earnings were 1p or less. Compare to other cash back sites, its offers were less appealing too. Gradually I lost my ambition on the site. However I didn't cancel my account, so I occasionally visited the site. Sometimes I was told I'm the click winner of per 50 clicks and paid extra 1 penny. I suppose the site doesn't have many active members so I was lucky to get the small prize regularly. Anyway every little helps particularly it's a prize. So every time I enjoyed receiving the prize winner notification emails. However their paid emails are really annoying to me. Basically they send same paid emails twice daily. So if you clicked them all you would be told you already clicked the ad today and not be paid at second time. And I have never been lucky to win the Jackpot Hits.

        Incidentally almost one year later I found I added up £3 and redeemed it to my PayPal account. As promised this transaction was taken less than 7 days.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Overall, not a quick way to earn extra cash

          I'm always on the look out for websites that can make you a bit of extra cash in your spare time whether it be survey sites or otherwise and stumbled across this simple website through a mixture of searching on the internet and a recommendation.

          On entering the website and signing up they give you 0.025 pence and then when you are signed in you can earn money for reading emails and clicking on advertising links. This sounds too simple and easy enough to make some money.

          The problem is that although this is a great idea and money for nothing really the cash incentives are so small that it could take forever to make any money at all on the site.

          I would say on average I get sent about 3-4 emails a day from archerfish over the 2 months I've been a member. All i have to do is open the email, click on the advertiser link and leave the page open on that screen for about 10-20 seconds and your account gets credited with 0.02 - 0.05 pence depending on how long you need to remain on the page. You don't have to read the email or act on it, just have the window open.

          So that's great, and you can go in and find advertiser links, although not many of them in the site itself. There is also a section where you can earn money through referrals so if the person you refer uses it you make a small amount of cash through them.

          However, I've been using this site now for 2 months and have made a grand total of 50 pence doing this! The cash out is £3 to paypal so at this rate I should reach that figure by the end of this year!

          As I say I think this site is a great idea but the cash incentives are far too small and you you are probably better off finding other ways to make some extra money a bit faster!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Never would use this again

          The site pays its members for reading emails they send out and also for signing up to other websites. You are given around 00.25 for starting to use the website on sign up. Joined up two months ago and wanted to know how much I could make on the website. They used to send out about 5 emails a day which were poor in pay rate.

          You had to open the email and let the advertisement run for around 30 seconds on your computer. You were paid so less for this was around 0.001 for each advertisement! The best section on the website was the fruit machine were you could gamble your money. I made around 1.25 on the machine before losing it out all by gambling again.

          I think the fruit machine section of the website will attract many customers because its easy to make money on. For clicking links on the website I used to get my payment added to my account through the website the next day. You needed 3 pounds in order to redeem on the website which is low and they pay out in paypal. I have failed to meet the target on the website because making 2 p for 3 minutes work a day is not worth doing.

          Good Idea - Could do with more earning options.

          Hi i have been a member of Arhcerfish.co.uk for a year now. The idea of this website is to click on links and read e-mails for a small cash reward. Usually 0.25 pence for e-mails and 0.2 pence for a paid to view link.

          When i first started using this site it took me just over two months to reach my first pay-out of £3 via Pay-Pal however you can wait and get a cheque sent to you for the value of £5 to avoid fees.

          Since I have joined the earnings seemed to have slowed down a bit and it seems to be taking me 3-4 months to earn the £3 required for Pay-Pal payout. Due to the small pay-out and time it takes to reach it may seem not to be worth the while.

          However i am only ever on this site a few minutes a day to earn a few extra pence and i consider all money as good money especially when i've run out of any other ideas. You can earn extra here by referring members and getting a slice of what they earn. There is also a cash-back section which can boost your earnings by £0.30 at a time depending on what free offers you sign up for.

          If you are interested in joining please use the link below (copy and paste into new browser window):-

          http://archerfish.co.uk/pages/index.php?refid=hotrock4

          Overall a great idea for a website although could do with more ads or ways to boost your earnings with. Payment is always prompt usually being in your Pay-Pal account within 48 hours of your request.

            Advantages

            Not for the impatient!!

            This review is for the Archerfish site, which I joined up to about 12 months ago in attempt to try and increase the number of internet sites I was getting paid for clicking on. Unfortunately, 12 months later my earnings to date are a measly £4:09, which is about the same that you can earn in a week of some other sites.
            On average I would say that the daily earnings are about 1p in total, which consists of a few Paid to clicks, and a few paid to reads, which tend to be worth 0.20p - 1.0p a click, although there are a lot more of the 0.2p ones, and very, very few 1.0p ones. It's a shame, because I really enjoy using the archerfish site, as I much prefer to open something, and just let it time out to earn some money, rather than have to do searches which you do on most other sites. There is a way of earning slightly more money, although again it is not very much, and that is by referring friends. I have referred five of my friends, and for doing so I earn 10% of everything that they earn, so once they have earned £1 I will have earned 10p. Again it is slow, and my total referral earnings in almost 1 year are less than 50p. You can cashout at £5 if you want paying by cheque, or £3 by paypal, (if you cannot be bothered to wait for almost another year to get to £5!!)
            Overall it's a very good site, and all cashback is added instantly, but it is really slow to earn money due to the small amounts paid for each click, and only for people with patience. I will continue to use it, as every penny helps.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              It's free to join and earns me about £15.00 a year.

              Archerfish.co.uk is a UK based website which allows you to earn a few pennies by clicking on adverts.

              Signing up to archerfish.co.uk is free and takes just a moment or two, you will be asked for some basic information including your name & e-mail address and will be asked to create a username and password for logging in.

              Once you log in you can look at a couple of different areas. The games & contests section has a cash give-away, a quiz area & a jackpot game (basically a fruit machine).

              I have had a little luck on the fruit machine in the past and am about £1.00 in profit from playing this but now I'm convinced if I play again that I'll lose all of my money so I don't bother!

              Each week one member is giving £5.00 at random just simply for logging in over the past week.

              Then you will see the sections that most people are really interested in, paid to click & paid to sign-up. These are quite self explanatory really.

              You are paid on average 1/4 of a penny (0.25p) to click on an advert and then display it for somewhere normally between 10-30 seconds. You will be advised how long once you open the advert and then once done it will update your account and refresh the page immediately showing any other available adverts. You may also receive e-mails in your inbox of your e-mail account and on the sites inbox which will have the same principle, a small amount of money for a short advert being displayed on a pop-up window.

              You can also get paid to sign up to websites, you will have to copy and paste the confirmation e-mail on to archerfish and then you will be credited within a short amount of time (if not instantly).

              If you refer your friends or family you will receive a percentage of what they earn also.

              You can see where you have earnt your money on the 'earning stats' page, I have made around £20.87 over the past 18 months that I have been a member. £4.44 of this is from paid clicks, £1.82 from referrals & £4.83 of this is from paid e-mails, the others are from various things such as the quizzes & the jackpot game.

              The site is very easy to join & use and takes just 2-3 minutes a day, you may only earn a couple of pence a day but if you're online anyway and don't have much else to do.

              I believe payment can be made by cheque but I always cash out via paypal when I reach £1 or so (I'm a gold member).

              I know some people aren't a fan of this site but I think earning a couple of extra pounds each month is gratefully appreciated, £20 is too much money for not a lot of work for me to turn down. If you want to join up it's www.archerfish.co.uk, my username is katykicker so feel free to say that I recommended you ;)

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A complete waste of time and effort.

                On the whole Archerfish.co.uk would seem to be a great site and a great idea for making a few pennies on the internet but in reality it is a complete waste of time and it becomes very boring very quickly.

                The idea of Archerfish is that once you have signed up and have your account which is an easy process, you will be able to access the paid clicks section and every advert you click on will earn you money.

                Seems ok up to now but then you realise that most of the ads will only be paying 0.2p per click so you need to make 5 clicks just to get 1p and when you consider every advert you click on must remain open for twenty seconds that means you will make less than a penny a minute and worse still there are only usually around 12 ads per day so in the average day you can only make around 2p.

                You need to reach £3 to cash out and this took me a massive 16 weeks, does it seem worth it to anyone?

                There is a referral scheme which allows you to make money from your friends clicks, so if you have about 200 million really stupid friends and they all join then you might be able to make around £100 a year.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Not worth it

                  Archerfish when i first heard of it sounded great. Getting paid to just click on random advertisements and eventually get a payout as soon as you got to £3 which doesn't seem like a lot. All for doing very little. I assure you that this is definitely not the case!
                  Fair enough you get 25p whn you first join up but there is a limited amount of clicks that you get a day so the maximum you can earn through clicking on adverts per day is only a couple of pence.
                  Also, the clicks do take the mick a bit seeing as you onyl get paid about a quarter of a penny for clicking an ad and then staying on the page for a certain amount of time, normally either 10 seconds or 30 seconds.
                  Archerfish is just simply not worth your time and if you spent your time on another website it would be a lot more handy.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  There are other websites that pay more per click

                  Archerfish is a website where you get paid for clicking on advertisements and e-mails. It is free to join and everyday when you log in, you will see e-mails in your account that you can click on. When you open the link you will be paid as long as you keep it open for the amount of time specified. This is normally between 10 and 30 seconds, but it tells you in the top left hand corner when you are free to close the link down. There are also advertisements that you can click on which work in the same way as the e-mails. The adverts and e-mails are usually for things like price comparison websites and other pay to click sites similar to Archerfish.

                  The advertisers obviously want you to read their e-mails or advertisments and hope that you will take notice of them and join up. I'm not sure if this really works, as most people only join these sites in the hope of making a bit of money and are not really bothered what the adverts are for.

                  If you are reading this and hoping that you will earn a nice sum of money from doing very little, then think again. The amount that you get paid is very small and it takes a long time to reach the payment threshold. You normally get paid between 0.2p and 0.5p per click. Occasionally there are ones for 1p, but usually its a quarter or half a penny, so as you can imagine, it takes quite a while to make some money and the payment threshold is £3. They give you 25p when you join.

                  I did use this website and managed to get to £3, but it took about 3 months, as the average amount you can make a day is 5p. Although the payout is only £3, there are other pay to click websites and cashback sites that you can earn more money in a quicker time span so I won't be bothering with Archerfish.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    Great site, with little payout limit, but it takes a while as they pay you as little as 0.2p

                    If you want to earn a little, and when I say little I mean little cash for effortless tasks this is for you.
                    Now if you don't mind opening a few emails a day and click the link and leaving the tab or window open for 10-20 seconds then this will suit you great.

                    The money works as its through advertising and they give you a cut of it, if you want to go a little further you can also earn more by signing up to offers and sites.

                    Once you have £3 you can then send the cash to your paypal account, they also give you 25p to start you off.

                    Now here's what your thinking, how much do they pay? Well it is little as its 0.2 - 0.33p usually for clicking the link and leaving the tab or window open for 10 - 20 seconds, so it's not much, but if you don't mind you'll soon get there, also on the clicks for every 50th click out of everybody you get a whole 1p. So as you can see you don't get much, but hay, you get it for note.

                      Good but its not woth it for what you get

                      I found this site in a forum and decided to sign up to it.
                      It's a British site that works with GBP £, the whole money thing is through advertisements and they give you a cut of it.
                      You also select topics that of are interest to you and they will send you emails saying that you get so much for them. But I didn't then I realised that I had to go to the link, so I then did this and got about 0.25p. so 4 ads to a penny, not much really.

                      You can also go to the archerfish website and click the ad link from there, you open the window wait 10-20 seconds until closing it, but for every 50th click out of every member you get a bonus, and the bonus is a whopping.... wait for it.... 1p!

                      So I though it would be a bit waste of time, as I would then get about 5p a day if I am lucky.

                      So I think it's not really worth setting any time on it. I just do the odd one, if I'm doing nothing else and I have about 20p now over 2 days.

                        Clicking for fractions of pennies.

                        Just before I start, I thought I ought to clear up any confusion:

                        1. Archerfish n. a small fish, Toxotes jaculatrix, of brackish and fresh waters in southeastern Asia, that preys upon shoreside spiders and insects by spitting drops of water at them and knocking them into the water.

                        2. Archerfish.co.uk n. a website designed to earn money online through clicking email links and paid ads.

                        So there we have it. This review is about Archerfish the website, not the small fish from southeast Asia.

                        Signing up at Archerfish is simple and will only take a couple of minutes of your time. Then you're armed and ready to earn your internet millions. Well not quite, but you get the picture.

                        Archerfish pays users for clicking on links from emails. You can also earn a few extra fractions of a penny by visiting the 'paid to click' section of the website. And fractions of pennies are all you can expect to earn here, although my inbox has recently been graced with some 1p emails.

                        I've been using paid to click websites for a number of years and Archerfish.co.uk is one of very few that I continue to use. Unfortunately, in my earlier days of internet earning, I was gullible enough to believe our American friends who offered 5 and 10c per email. Obviously this was unsustainable and this is where Archerfish has filled a gap in the market.

                        Whilst you may only be clicking for ¼ and ½ a pence at a time, you can click safe in the knowledge that the website can afford to pay you and in the time I've been a member of Archerfish, I've been lucky enough to receive a few payments. Somehow, I jumped on the Archerfish bandwagon very early on and I managed to get a large downline of members underneath me. Fortunately, this adds to my earnings from clicking on emails as I receive a percentage of their clicks as well.

                        I've earned just shy of £20 with Archerfish which is by no means going to allow me to take early retirement. It is though easy money for opening a few emails a day and clicking on links. Payment can be received by Paypal at £3 or you can allow your earnings to accumulate and redeem them for an Amazon gift certificate at £5 or a cheque at £10.

                        The website also offers cashback for taking out certain deals and offers and paid sign-ups. Whilst the amount on offer may seem enticing, it's usually only a fraction of what you'd receive for signing up to the same offer through Topcashback, Quidco or a similar cashback site. For this reason, I haven't signed up to these offers and am quite happy to continue clicking emails here and there whilst I watch the pennies mount up.

                        Archerfish certainly won't be for everyone. It's far from a get rich quick scheme. On the plus side though the earnings are genuine and the website does pay out. So if you have time in your survey and cashback clicking regime each day, it's worth considering signing up to add to your annual online earnings. You won't make a fortune but in the words of good old Tesco, 'Every little helps!'

                          Advantages

                          Disadvantages

                          There are worse cashback sites.

                          Like an ever increasing majority of people, during the past year I have signed up to a handful of cashback/ paid email sites in the hope of making a fast buck. Archerfish was one of these sites that promised money for reading emails and clicking on ads and websites. The premise seemed simple enough and I eagerly signed up.

                          Sign-up was pretty straight forward although compared to some other sited it could have been quicker. The first step is to enter your email address and wait for a confirmation email. After clicking on the link in the email you are then asked for more details including address, username, password, just all the usual info.

                          The design of the site is pretty basic but quite clutterred with lots of banners and links to other sites. These can be quite irritating at first but when you get used to the layout the site is quick and easy to navigate with all the buttons you need appearing on the left hand side of the site.

                          One thing that quickly becomes apparent about Archerfish is the fact that it does not pay well. Each email and ad typically pays around 0.25p - less than a penny! However, you do get around three or four emails a day and usually a couple of ads to click on. However this can vary dramatically with some days being better than other. On a good day I can make about 4p a day, although on an average day it is only about 1p. This doesn't sound much but it is surprising how quickly it can mount up.

                          Despite paying tiny amounts, there is one main reason why I persevere with this site. This is the fact that your efforts are immediately recognised. When you click on a link, there is a banner on the next page telling you how much you will get paid if you stay on the site for a certain amount of time. After the time has passed this message then changes and says 'Thank you, your account has been credited'. When you click back onto the Archerfish page and go and check your 'Earning Stats' the money is immediately added to your account. Unlike some sites the money does not go into a pending account but is there as confirmed. For me this is a huge advantage because there is not the worry of whether or not the click has been tracked and I know my time spent there has not been wasted.

                          There are other ways to make money on the site such as trivia games, where you pay to play for the chance to win a small jackpot. There is also a section where you can get paid to sign- up to certain things and a referral centre where you may get a percentage of other your referrals' earnings. I have yet to explore any of these as I tend to just do the paid emails and daily clicks so I can't really comment on this.

                          Overall I quite like this site and don't mind spending time clicking on links because it is simple, straightforward and easy to do whilst doing other things online. Not a big earner by any means but they do pay out at a low level of £3. Payment can be via paypal, amazon vouchers or a cheque.
