Website Review:

I have been writing online for many years now and most sites have been international. I have written for many socio-blogging sites like Bubblews, CGP Gallery, Persona Paper and many others. 

Some of these sites folded up their business. Some disappeared without a word and others made great promises but could not compete with other sites.

For the first time however, I am writing for a Pakistani site called Chillkey. Though there are very few members here and the earnings are slow because of limited membership, it gives me great pleasure to write on a platform that has been started by people of my own country.

The site has been around for quite a while now but has not really taken off. My biggest problem with this website is that the admins are very slow about tackling low quality, plagiarized posts and improve the site in general. 

However they have been around a long time so I guess they mean to stay. What they really need is a group of committed writers who can write some semblance of English. The site pays its members but need to clean up the content much faster and make it a place where serious writers would like to contribute.

The rules are simple:

5000 max characters for a post

The payment threshold is Rs. 1000/-

The rates are as following:

1 Like = 0.25 PKR
1 Comment = 0.80 PKR
1 View = 0.05 PKR

International members are paid via Western Union. Writers from Pakistan are paid through EasyPaisa, Payza, Mobicash, UPaisa,Timepay etc.

I have not cashed out as yet so I cannot promise if the site is legit on the basis of my own experience. But two people have received payments. The admins have posted about their success and the successful members have verified this information too. 

If you are looking for a new platform, try out this site as well. 

Here’s my referral link

Who knows, you might enjoy the experience!

I joined a few months ago. It is a legitimate site that pays its contributors via Paypal once $10 are accumulated.

The posts do not need to be long and can be as short as 5 sentences but they need a picture or a video. Interesting content gets shared very quickly. 

Referral Link:

If you wish to share Niume, please use my referral link:

With Niume's referral program you will receive $1 for every user you bring to the platform who creates at least one post. Any user we bring will also receive $1 straight after creating their first post.

On many other websites, you have to write long articles but Niume is fun. I have not seen a daily limit as yet and some posts are stunning and very beautifully presented. 

Two other things I like about Niume is that we can have the freedom to delete our posts and we can keep on earning on our older posts if we keep sharing them.
