Get paid to upload stuff

Ah, one-click hosters... we all have seen and used one. Rapidshare and Megaupload are the popular ones. These two are the grannies of one-click hosting sites and they offer, well, not that much. Now if you'd like to EARN while you share your stuff to your peers, that's where one-click hosters that pay come in.

I've used a few of these pay-to-upload hosts and here are my reviews for each one I've tried to earn with.



Here's my top pick: Ziddu. It basically follows the concept Upload-Share-Earn.

  • File limit per upload: 200 MB
  • Filetype restriction: None at the moment
  • Earnings: You will get $0.001 for each Unique download.Redeemed cash will be transfered via PayPal or Moneybookers once it reaches $10. For every 10,000 Unique Downloads, you'll earn $10 - depending on the source of those clicks. You will get $0.10 Referral Bonus, when someone joins with Ziddu through your referral link and uploads his first file

I have used Easy-Share as my first PTU host but I lost interest with their payment scheme. For you to get paid, they said "you should have premium account valid 30 or more days. If you have more than 15000 download during last 30 days, you get a free premium account." which is technically blackmail. Although uploading through ftp is one a plus for them.
  • File limit per upload: 100 MB
  • Filetype restriction: None at the moment
  • Earnings: $2 for 1000 downloads from the following countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, France, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Spain, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, USA. $1 for 1000 downloads from the following countries: Brazil, Czech Republic, India, Japan, Malaysia, Mexica, Turkey, Poland, Russia, Ukraine.

Currently, I'm using the Uploaded.to service. It is a German filehost that pays when your earnings reach 25 Euros. They offer an upload tool to make your uploading chore easier. Although I haven't figured out how they calculate your download-earning ratio.
  • File limit per upload: 250 MB
  • Filetype restriction: None at the moment
  • Earnings: Collect 10,000 points, to get a FREE Premium-Account for one month. For each Free-Download you earn one point. Payout will occur if credit is 25 Euro.

Those are the three services I've used but there are a lot more out there that offers PTU services. You can check them out: BizHat, FileFactory, NetLoad, UploadJockey and LetItBit. Go forth and earn earn earn!
