Detail descriptions of special notes and symbols at Cashie Network are shown below.
Code Green: The site has officially been tested and proven by Cashie.net that it does pay and/or deliver.
Code Yellow: The site is still being tested and/or still in pending status and no payment has ever been received due to not meeting minimum payment yet or the site has been taking long to pay. Some additional info may be posted, such as notifying if it has been researched and concluded that it does pay or that it is a bit or somewhat risky to try.
Code Red: The site is either too risky, dead or it just scams. Stay away from these type of sites!
Code Gray: Sites with this code means that the site has not paid (or does not have a paying feature) but it is not important due to the site itself not specializing in paying. Such type of sites are usually: advertising sites, safe lists, and traffic exchanges (where their specialty is to give you web traffic — not money).
The rating system is based on multiple factors (see below). The rating factors are calculated and converted to a 5 star rating system for an overall rating. Rating DOES NOT only represent amount of money, credits or points you can make, but a number of differet factors.
Example of overall rating display:
To check for each rating factor for each site, hover over orange "Overall Rating" links to display the number of stars of each factor category. The more filled up stars, the better. Here is a more detailed description of what each factor represents:
- Look (1 star): The look and professionalism in design.
0 = horrible or bad; 1 = good or great
- User Friendly (1 star): The ease of navigating through the site.
0 = horrible or bad; 1 = good or great
- Server/Function (3 stars): The servers' connection stabilities and site's code functions.
0 = amazingly bad; 1 = bad; 2 = average or okay; 3 = good; 4 = great or fantastic
- Referral Earnings (3 stars): The fair earning amount from referral commissions.
0 = amazingly low to none; 1 = low; 2 = decent; 3 = high
- Price Deals (3 stars): The value of price deals on ad packages, subscriptions and anything else.
0 = amazingly expensive; 1 = expensive or a little expensive; 2 = okay or decent deals; 3 = cheap or good deals
- Earning Deals (3 stars): The earning deals and potential compared to other similar sites.
0 = amazingly bad; 1 = bad or a little bad; 2 = okay or decent; 3 = better than decent or great
- Customer Support (4 stars) - The customer support quality to members.
0 = really bad or rude; 1 = non existant; 2 = a little bad or average; 3 = good; 4 = great
- Login Security (5 stars): The login security features.
1 star per each qualified support: password longer than 10 characters long; special characters in passwords accepted; captcha or security code input required; optional second password input; and SSL or other encrypting security feature included. For sites that have a low score on security, do remember that payment processors have their own transfer security, which this rating system does not rate. For example, EasyHits4U has low security for logging in, however, paying and receiving money through their chosen payment processors (PayPal & Payza) are very secure.
- Cashout Fairness (5 stars): The fairness of the minimum cashout rule compared to earning speed to reach the minimum.
0 = ridiculously high minimum; 1 = very high minimum; 2 = high minimum; 3 = fair or acceptable minimum; 4 = low minimum; 5 = very low minimum
- PAYMENT RELIABILITY (25 stars): The legitimacy of the site.
0 stars = does not pay and never has; 5 stars = does not pay though it used to; 10 stars = very risky or most likely doesn't pay all the time; 15 stars = hardly risky or takes too long to pay every time; 20 stars = it pays but either not instantly, takes more than 30 days, or a combination of any; 25 stars = it pays but either instantly, within a month, or is simply very reliable
Rating Conversion to 5 Stars
In total there are 50 stars. Empty stars are then deducted. The total is then converted into a 5 star rating system.
Example 1: 50 - 30 = 20. 20 ÷ 50 = 0.4. 0.4 • 5 = 2.
Example 2: 50 - 18 = 32. 32 ÷ 50 = 0.64. 0.64 • 5 = 3.2.
