Has Bubblews scammed you?

I've been a member of Bubblews for a year and really only concentrated on them six months ago - in that time I've been paid every time I've asked. There are thousands of members but there is a small core of membership who insist they have not been paid and there are no reasons why they shouldn't have been paid. A recent notice by Bubblews noted that the majority of people who end up writing 'Bubblews is a scam' articles were cheating the system by creating multiple accounts, copying and pasitng and creating automated systems to get traffic - however there are probably a few people who got caught up innocently - so has Bubblews scammed you?

I've always gotten paid every time, although it wasn't always on time!

I have been paid 29 times there with only slight delays. No problem at all and I don't consider it a scam.

only one missing (during the Christmas period and payout minimum change). Still in que to have it looked into. Other than that, I have been paid every time.

I haven't been paid once and that was back in November when they were having a ton of glitches for a week straight. Emailed them about it, but they completely ignored me. I think it got lost with all of the glitches and it couldn't be accounted for.

Two missing payments, all requests ignored. Not a scam, but definitely a bunch of people with their heads you-know-where!

I missed one payment back in 2013 when they had a big server problem. I am not annoying them for 25$.

My daughter and I each missed our first payments. Both were check requests, and no emails asking about it ever got a response. All payouts since, which were using paypal, have been received.

I was paid even after my account was deleted for using a picture I did not have permission to use

14 requests = 14 payments. I would say they are not a scam.

I've had a few that went missing but considering the totals that have been paid out I wouldn't say it was a scam. However, they do need to find a way to keep payments from falling through the cracks -- even when they have system issues.

Their recent editorial didn't address all the legitimate writers who are missing a payment here or there. And I don't think the masses should be expected to let those payments just fritter away because it's a new site. In the end, we should all be able to get what's owed whether it's 6 months past due or not.

SimeyC I'm curious to see what your poll reveals in the end on how many people have outstanding payments.

AdrienneJenkins wrote on June 23, 2014, 10:19 AM

How do you know it's still in queue or if Bubblews has just neglected to make good on such claims until you complain about it?

BigDreamer wrote on June 23, 2014, 12:48 PM

I have 4 missing payments.
I emailed about each one and never received a response.

I got all my payments before I left but a lot of completely legitimate users missed payments. I personally did everything I could to help more than a dozen members who were missing anywhere from $20 to over $1000 in payments. They may not be a total scam, but they're certainly not completely legitimate either.

I have been paid about 30 times and have had one miss payment

imphavok wrote on June 23, 2014, 4:55 PM

I should add I wrote to them about it and they did respond that they would look into it, but I never heard back from them. All other payments I have gotten no problem (A little slow, but they still arrived. My son, is the same as me, he's received about 30 successful payments and has one outstanding.

I've been paid 33 times in full, but it's always a worry. I've been waiting 13 days for my latest redemption. Maybe it will come and maybe it won't.Sadly that's the way that group works. Try and contact them twice and they say you're a spammer. Their customer service needs to improve a lot

I never had a problem with Bubblews. I still write there. I actually like it there very much. I cannot speak for everyone though. And so far I really like it here. I just wish I was able to post. But they need to approve my account. I don't know how long that takes.

chatombreux wrote on June 25, 2014, 7:22 AM

I have never had an issue with Bubblews other than their frequent tweaking which causes down time and the lengthier delays in being paid.

Hey hey hey! Guess whose poll came up in a search engine inquiry! Congratulations on indexing! :)

BarbRad wrote on August 13, 2014, 12:06 PM

They didn't pay me once, about a year ago, and never replied to my email, but I've been paid every since. I think it must have been a glitch.

I can say so far so good, but currently I am waiting for quite a lot of redemptions. Normally they pay, but I am still waiting for some in August.
