When you click an ad, you earn the money equal to the ad value and also a point. You can also earn points by completing point offers. Points can be used for: 1. Golden Membership: 30000 Points = 1 year Golden Membership, 2. Recycle and/or extend your rented referrals, 3. Increase your direct referrals limit: 500 Points = Increase the limit by 1 direct referral.
You can only be credited by the same advertisement once each 24 hours. Imagine your click reset time (shown at your own local time) as your midnight. This means that after that time, another period of 24 hours will count so that you can be credited by viewing the advertisements. This reset time is set randomly for each user upon registration and cannot be modified under any circumstances.
The clicks you get credited from referrals are directly related to the clicks you make. If you click at least 4 advertisements being a Standard / Pioneer member or you click at least 9 advertisements being a Golden member, you'll receive all clicks made from your referrals. If you click below that, the maximum you will receive is only the amount of clicks you've made multiplied by the number of referrals you have. The referral clicks will be calculated based on the clicks you made on the previous day. These calculations are based on the server time which can be seen in the "View Advertisements" page. The only advertisements that will count are: Extended Exposure, Standard Exposure, and Orange Fixed Advertisements. This basically means that you need to click by the server's time everyday and not by your own time (unless you live in the same time zone).
The minimum amount paid is $2.00 on the first cashout. This amount will increase by $1.00 for each cashout until it reaches a fixed minimum amount of $10.00. After that, the minimum amount will always be $10.00.
You can cashout to an unverified PayPal, Payza, or NETELLER account. Remember that for purchases, PayPal and Payza accounts need to be verified.

Coins are your NeoBux currency which can be converted to money directly into your Main Balance. Currently you earn Coins by completing offers. Coin offers are credited 30 days after a successful offer completion. This period is required for security reasons. Coins can only be converted to real money credited directly to your Main Balance. A minimum of 2,500 Coins are required for conversion. Also Coin offers will grant you a referral commission from your direct referrals' offers. You'll get an amount of Coins equal to 20% of the amount each of your direct referrals earns. For example, if your direct referral earns 20,000 Coins you'll get 4,000 Coins. The amount of Coins you can earn from commissions is unlimited.
First of all, you can only have direct referrals after you meet these conditions: 1. Been a member for at least 15 days, 2. Have made at least 100 clicks. After these conditions are met, the direct referral you can have will be based first on certain limits, for example, the limit for Standard members is 30, for Golden 200 etc. Depending on how many days you've been registered, all those days, minus the first 30, will count towards a limit increase. This means that the older member you are, the more referrals you may have. The amount will be based on your current membership/pack and the days you're registered (minus 30). This amount will vary and is explained below:
Standard/Pioneer = (Days - 30) divided by 4
Golden (without a pack) = (Days - 30) divided by 2
Golden (with a pack) = Days - 30.
You can always remove all direct referrals you don't want to make room for new ones.
I do not have much experience on renting referrals in NeoBux. But there are lots and lots of articles published over the internet about NeoBux rented referrals. Many users offer their strategies for renting. I did not come across any strategy perfect for me. But if you want to follow anyone's strategy, study it first. It is better to go through a reputable PTC forum than some unknown website. Below I am mentioning some features of referral renting in NeoBux:
Before you can rent some referrals, you need to have fund in your "Rental Balance". If you don't have available funds in your rental balance, click the "Rental Balance" link in your account summary page and you'll find options on how to add funds to it. On the top of your click charts, you'll see a "Referrals" button. After clicking on it, you'll be presented with the available packs to rent. Just hover your mouse cursor over the available packs to know its value. The packs shown in gray are available but there's not enough money in your rental balance to rent them. Pick a blue pack and confirm. The referrals will then be added to your account. Standard members can rent easily. But Golden members need to specify two hours in their personal settings for rental.
You always rent referrals for 30 days. You can always extend them for periods in 15 days blocks or daily using AutoPay. If you have AutoPay enabled, on the first click a referral makes per day, you'll pay to keep that referral for an extra day. If the referral does not click, you won't pay for another day. So, imagine you rented 500 referrals by spending $100 for a month's rent. Instead of paying $100 again at the next due date (yes, it hurts), you can pay for them daily. In the end, you'll save $15 and you'll never run out of referrals. Also, you don't have to worry about the due date. While it's easier to pay this way, it's also cheaper for you because you save 15% of a whole month's rent. Basically, you'll pay one day in advance to your referral's due date. The value for each referral/day will be deducted from your rental balance. If your rental balance has insufficient funds, it will deduct from your main balance. If both balances have insufficient funds, it won't be triggered and will only work again when one of the balances has enough funds. Keep in mind that while you may have AutoPay activated, it's only triggered for referrals that have 20 or more days left until the next payment. This value is smaller for some Golden Packs.
Golden members have much more demand in renting referrals compared to Standard members because almost all of them can afford to rent. As the demand rises, the distributed referrals for a particular time are easily sold out. Golden members can rent referrals by setting two times of the day for renting depending on their most convenient time. You can find that option in your personal settings. After you change the time, you can only change it again after 7 days. Remember to be quick because many other members will be there at the same time as you trying to rent. Also, you have to follow the time according to the server, because your computer time may be faster or slower by few seconds or minutes. If you're having trouble renting, you can always use the rental queue which will guarantee you the referrals. But I do not recommend to use it, because it is expensive and you may not make profit.
Recycling is a term we use to exchange a rented referral. There are times when certain referrals don't live up to your expectations. In this case, you can recycle them for only $0.07 each (less in certain Golden Packs). NeoBux also provides automatic (and free) replacements for referrals who don't click for 14 days straight (less in certain Golden Packs). To recycle a single referral, the easiest method is to click the green icon (the two arrows) at the end of the referral's row in the referral listing. Click it and then just confirm that you really want to. Using this method, you can pay with your rental balance or get the amount deducted from your main balance if your rental balance hasn't enough funds. To recycle a group of referrals, just tick every checkbox at the end of each referral's row. Then, scroll to the end of the listing and you'll see an option asking you what you want to do with the referrals you selected. Just select that you want to recycle them and confirm.
