What is InboxPays About?

The InboxPays homepage promises you’ll make money in several ways with bold claims like “Make lots of money on a single click,” “Earn Extra Cash,” and “Earn up to $50 on a single offer.”

Honestly, in my opinion, these claims are horribly misleading.

InboxPays Review

Before you can join InboxPays, you must click the little box that says you agree to the “Privacy and Updated Terms.” That’s where they get you.

Before you join InboxPays or any other make money site read and understand the Privacy Policy and the Terms and Conditions. There’s a reason they print these things in tiny letters.

Remember, the big print giveth and the small print taketh away!

After studying the InboxPays Terms and Conditions, I’m convinced InboxPays is a marketing company. Its claims that you can make money are little more than come-ons to get you to join.

I doubt you’ll make money with InboxPays. If you do make money, it won’t be much and it will take you months to get paid.

The truth about InboxPays is revealed in the Membership Terms.

Consider the opening line of paragraph A.9 of the InboxPays Terms and Conditions. It says, “InboxPays offers cash incentives/cash surveys to members in exchange for completing signup process for trial offers.”

Clearly, their intention is to get you to sign up for trial offers.

If you look at a larger excerpt from paragraph A.9, you’ll see there is more bad news.

“InboxPays offers cash incentives/cash surveys to members in exchange for completing (a) signup process for trial offers. Signing up for the offers, advertised by our partners, is necessary in order to be eligible for cash incentives. If you sign up for the corresponding offer, it will take up to 8 weeks to receive the cash funds from the advertiser.” (parentheses added)

Did you see that? There is no mention of getting paid. The InboxPays Terms and Conditions instead speak of “cash incentives.” What’s that?

I explain what a cash incentive is below.

At this point, ponder the idea that you must sign up for “offers from advertisers.” Advertisers expect to make money. That’s why they advertise. They won’t make money until you buy something.

Getting you to buy something is what InboxPays is REALLY about.

Here’s what happens; you sign-up for a trial offer and you must enter your credit card information. When the trial ends, you are billed for the product or service and InboxPays earns a commission.

Then a miracle happens!

ScamAvenger Girl, says “Thumbs Down!”

Because you bought something and InboxPays earned a commission, they give you a little bit of your money back as a “cash incentive.”

You didn’t really make money. You SPENT money.

InboxPays is all about hooking you into taking trial offers that convert into sales where InboxPays makes a commission.

After you have successfully completed a trial offer by buying it, and after you have jumped through the InboxPays hoops to their satisfaction, you must wait 8 weeks before your account is credited, but, as you’ll see in a moment, you still are not paid!

Spending $20 to make $1 is NOT making money.

Read a little deeper into the paragraph “A.9” and you’ll see that it will take as long as 8 weeks to get credited for completing the trail offer.

If you sign up for the corresponding offer, it will take up to 8 weeks to receive the cash funds from the advertiser.”

This sentence is constructed very carefully. Instead of getting “paid,” it refers to “cash funds from the advertiser.” I think what they are referring to is that it takes 8 weeks for InboxPays to get the “cash funds from the advertiser.” You still don’t get anything.

At the very bottom of paragraph “A.9” there is this:

Note: Payments will be transferred to US VERIFIED PAYPAL ACCOUNTS ONLY. It will take at least 90 days from the Requested Date, after verification.

It is my understanding, based on what I’ve read in paragraph A.9 of the InboxPays Membership Terms, that it will take 8 weeks for InboxPays to get paid from the advertiser after you have successfully completed a trial offer.

Then, after you request payment and InboxPays verifies that you are qualified for that trial offer and authorizes you to be paid, it will take another 3 months to have the money credited to your PayPal account!

And, this is assuming you’ve earned the minimum $50 payout.

But, the truth is, InboxPays does not guarantee you’ll get paid.

InboxPays Does Not Guarantee You’ll Be Paid.

In paragraph B.10 of the InboxPays Terms you’ll find this little beauty.

“NO PAYMENT GUARANTEE: Inboxpays does NOT guarantee that a member will receive credit for a completed survey and offer. . . . We reserve the right to refuse the credit to members for offers for . . . any . . . reason.”

It looks to me like InboxPays is not legally bound to pay you at all.

Think about that. If InboxPays does not have to give you credit for a completed offer, do you honestly trust they will?

InboxPays Complaints.

Not surprisingly, there are a lot of complaints online about InboxPays. Most are about not getting paid. Here are a few.

“Total Scam!” (Source: danny/scambook.com)

“SCAM SCAM SCAM.” (Source: tired if the scam/ reviewopedia.com)

“Please, please do not waste your time with InboxPays. You actually have to purchase some of the offers in order to get money credited to your account. SCAM.” (Source: Pre /reviewopedia.com)

“When my balance reached $50.15, which they said was approved, I requested a payout. After verifying my phone number, pay pal email, etc., I was given a number to call for further verification. After being on hold for over five minutes they hung up. Since I was still on my computer I could still see my account. As soon as they hung up my account went from an approved $50.15 go $17.15. I would call this company a scam.” Ann (Source:reviewopedia.com)

InboxPays BBB complaints.

An online search for complaints against InboxPays leads to a listing for A&A Marketing, Inc. with the Chicago and Northern Illinois Better Business Bureau. According to the BBB, A&A Marketing, Inc. owns InboxPays.com and several other ‘so-called’ survey or make-money websites.

Isn’t it interesting that InboxPays is owned by a marketing company?

A&A Marketing, Inc. is not a member of the BBB, but they still get a failing grade.

The BBB has received enough complaints about InboxPays to determine a pattern.

“Since March 2015, the BBB of Houston & South Texas began receiving several complaints that exhibit the following pattern.

According to consumer disputes, it has been alleged that Inbox Pays is not providing payments for completing trial offers, reading e-mails and playing online games.  . . .The company has failed to respond to disputes that have been sent by the BBB.”

  1. Inboxpays and Inboxdollars are 2 different sites. I see a lot of people get them confused. Inboxpays requires a higher payout, and I have yet to receive one after 2 yrs of just doing the “free” tasks”. Where as Inboxdollars only requires $30 for payout, and I have never had issue with them, and have received payout a couple of times since joining (been a member for several yrs). I would say at this point I think Inboxpays is definitely a scam.

    1. Hi, Jane!

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experience with InboxPays and InboxDollars.

      All the best,

  2. It’s a SCAM!!! Met a bunch of their requirements for the minimum payout of $50 to see if they would payout and of course, no payout. It’s been OVER 2 months now. Tried getting a hold of their support page and it just goes in circles. Seems the only way to contact them is via snail mail, and even that is iffy. I read on another review site that someone sent a letter and got it back from the post office marked “not at this address”

    1. Hi, JB!

      Thanks for sharing your experience with Inbox Pays. Yes, indeed, it’s a scam. I’m not surprised they would tell someone who with a complaint to send a snail mail and then refuse to accept it. Unfortunately, do these clowns rip people off, they also collect personal information. No good can come of dealing with Inbox Pays.

      Thanks for stopping by,

  3. Hi Gary
    I had the privilege of reading your review of “Big Spots,” and now “Inbox Pays.”

    All I can say is, wow! These guys really try to suck every cent out from people. I love how you broke down the clauses for me.
    I sometimes don’t properly scrutinize the contract before I sign and you have illustrated the scheming ways of Inbox pays wonderfully here. Thanks

    These guys have a nerve of earning commission from your trial, then dish you out with “measly” pay and yet in the end still find ways to not pay it out to you at all

    Thanks for another fantastic review of a classic scammer.

    1. Hi, Roopesh!

      Good to see you again. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

      I didn’t read terms and conditions for a long time. Now, I’m a believer. The devil is in the details. Also, a scammer will lie like crazy on the front end and hide the truth in the fine print of the terms and conditions.

      Honestly, if someone doesn’t have the time or the desire to read the terms and conditions of a survey site, they really shouldn’t get involved.

      People are looking for an easy way to make money online, some magic button they can press to turn their computer into an ATM machine. There is no machine button, but there is a way to earn money online with a legitimate business. This short video will get you started.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  4. Hi there,

    How downright dirty and outright scandalous can you get with the privacy policy and updates by legally not obliging your company to make a payout!

    That alone is enough for me not to touch it with a barge pole. Thanks for sharing this are reading through with fine detail the legal speak.

    1. Hi, Derek!

      Thanks for stopping by and taking a moment to comment.

      I’m convinced that most survey sites are scams. InboxPays is a real stinker to be sure.

      Even the few legitimate survey sites are not worth the time.

      All the best,


  5. Hi Gary! Thank you for bringing this system to our attention. Once again it looks like you will save a lot of people a lot of time and effort! Just the name alone “Inbox pays” is totally misleading! Over the last few months I have seen several systems like this that look like they could well earn people some extra cash from the front of the website. However, start looking a little further into these websites at the terms and you start to see all kinds of little scams going on! I just think its really bad that a business can get away with tricking people into working for them for free, and then can get away with paying nothing simply because they have a get out clause within their terms and conditions. I hope the creators of these sites get a dose of their own medicine one of these days!

    1. Hi, Andrew!

      You are so right. InboxPays is completely misleading. I can only imagine the thousands, if not tens of thousands, of people who are scammed by this site.

      I once heard a nutritionist warn that everything on the front of a package of processed food is a lie. It’ the same with these online survey sites. Everything on the home page is a lie. The truth is buried in the terms and conditions and usually it isn’t pretty.

      Surveys are an absolute waste of time and could compromise your privacy and cost money. There is no way to win with online surveys.

      If you’re interested in making money online the right way, this short video will get you started.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  6. I would agree with you that I do not look at Inbox Pays as an opportunity for making money. To be signing up for products which I’m required to pay for to see about getting a small kickback from is not a business.

    As you have also mentioned according to their small print, they do not even need to pay you that either.

    If I’m looking to purchase products, I’ll just see about buying them on sale and as far as a business goes your Wealthy Affiliate is the better choice.

    1. Hi, Travis!

      Thanks for stopping by. Surveys are a waste of time and the ones like InboxPays are a blatant scam. Anytime a survey company promises you can make money, it’s a scam. If they claim you can make $10, $50, $75 or more, it’s a damned scam!

      The internet is a tremendous opportunity. To make money online the right way is really very simple and only requires a website and the ability to attract visitors to that website. If you can do that, you can make as much money as your want.

      Watch this short video to get started.

      All the best,


  7. It is not unusual now a days that most people are actively looking for a passive income to supplement their living. There are many get rich quick scheme out there and most have fallen prey if one is not careful. I must admit I was also one of them but was fortunately quick enough to leave with minor losses. Thank you for highlighting another scam and hope more people will read this review.

    1. Hi, Wesley!

      You are so right. The internet is awash with scams. I’m suspicious of all so-called survey websites. Most of them are pure scams, but even the better ones are a waste of time at best. InboxPays is just one of many.

      Like you, I fell for a few scams and every week I hear of more people getting scammed. That is what motivates me to uncover scams and warn as many people as I can.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  8. Day in and day out people are searching for ways to make money online. Its so hard not to get caught up with these “get rich quick” schemes. It is obvious that InboxPays is just looking for people to sign up for them to make quick cash. It appears to be well thought out, but I am glad that you were able to point out some other smaller things such as the fine print. that was shady on there part and sneakily worded! Great way of looking at websites that may be scamming!

    1. Hi, Christopher!

      Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your kind words.

      The internet is the greatest opportunity in the history of the world, unfortunately, it exposes us to countless scams. As you mentioned, people instinctively know that the internet is a phenomenal opportunity and want to make it work for them. However, the scammers are everywhere online.

      I wish more people would realize that if they want to make money online they need to have their own business and that takes time to build. They’ll probably need to learn a few new skills as well. This is the best place I’ve found to learn. It’s where I learned how to build an online business.

      All the best,
