PaidLeaf is a platform that will pay you a lot of money for doing very little work.
Or at least, this is what it makes you believe in order to lure you in.
Truthfully, PaidLeaf is part of a huge MMO (Make Money Online) scam network which has been swarming the internet for many months now. Some of the scams within that network which you might have already heard about are
Thankfully, unlike the majority of people, you decided to do your research before giving PaidLeaf a try and I can assure you that by the end of this PaidLeaf review, you’ll be able to make a 100% informed decision about whether this platform is worth your time and energy or not.
Spoiler alert: It’s NOT!
And you are about to find out why…
Zero potential to earn any money with PaidLeaf.
Referral link, promotional banners, FAQ center, submission guidelines.
Value for Money
Free to join. Additional charges to qualify for a cashout. The platform is 100% useless!
Support through email and Skype. Both of those addresses are fake.
A few payment proofs and positive testimonials exist on PaidLeaf’s website. Every single one of them is fake!
What is PaidLeaf About?
PaidLeaf.com is being heavily promoted through social media and YouTube lately as an MMO (Make Money Online) platform which will pay you a lot of money for completing a number of very simple tasks which require no previous experience such as
- getting people to sign up to PaidLeaf through your unique referral link
- posting promotional banners your social media
- filling in online surveys
- installing applications on your mobile phone
- entering contests
- etc, etc
More specifically, PaidLeaf is supposed to pay you
- $25 just for signing up
- $2 for each person who clicks on your referral link
- an additional $10 for each person who signs up to PaidLeaf after clicking on your referral link
- $30 for filling in surveys and entering contests
- $10 for installing applications on your mobile phone
- $50 for creating YouTube videos promoting PaidLeaf
- $10 for submitting a promotional post to Instagram/Facebook/Twitter every 48 hours
Everything sounds pretty good up until this point right?
The only problem is that PaidLeaf is a big fat scam which will NEVER actually let you get your hands on your earnings.
When you complete any of those tasks I mentioned above, PaidLeaf is going to credit your account with money in order to make you think that the platform works and get you to complete even more tasks, but once you request an actual payment of that credited money, you’ll realize that PaidLeaf never intended to pay you in the first place.
Let me explain further…
How Does PaidLeaf Work?
First of all, PaidLeaf lures people in with the promise of a $25 sign up bonus which is supposed to only be applicable only for a limited amount of time.
This creates a sense of urgency to actually get your hands on that $25 before that limited offer expires which in turn increases the number of people who end signing up to the platform.
Many people will join PaidLeaf only because they think that they can get their hands on that $25 bonus right after creating their account.
This is exactly how I ended up joining a scam identical to PaidLeaf called Viral Pay, for the first time a few months ago.
However, in order to qualify to cash out either your $25 sign up bonus or any additional money you earn with PaidLeaf, you need to
- refer at least 5 people to it
- complete at least 5 tasks on the $30 TaskWall
- have at least 20 clicks on your unique referral link
- earn at least $200 with PaidLeaf
Some people will quit PaidLeaf once they realize that they can’t have their $25 signup bonus right away. Those are the lucky ones.
However, there are others who will say “What the hell, the tasks I have to complete to qualify for a cashout don’t seem that hard. Plus, I can earn a lot more money by completing them. Yeah, let’s give it a try!” … Those are the ones who get sucked into the scam.
They start devoting time and energy into referring people to the platform and completing tasks, thinking that the next time they hit that “Request Payment” button, they’ll get hundreds of dollars deposited in their bank account.
However, what they don’t know is that PaidLeaf will ban their account the moment they request a payment using as an excuse that their clicks and referrals are fake.
This way, PaidLeaf gets you to bring more people to it as well as complete several tasks which will bring money to its owners while getting out of paying anyone a single dime.
Pretty appalling right?
Well, this is it… This is how PaidLeaf actually works or to be more accurate, doesn’t work.
- It lures you in with a $25 signup bonus
- Then it tells you that in order to cash out your signup bonus you need to meet certain requirements (get 20 clicks on your referral link, 5 referrals, complete 5 tasks, earn at least $200)
- You start trying to meet those requirements in order to qualify for a payment
- In the meantime, the more clicks and referrals you get and the more tasks you complete, the more money PaidLeaf credits your account
- When you finally meet every single one of those requirements and you request for the money you’ve earned fair and square, they kick you out leaving you high and dry
Get this very well in your head, PaidLeaf will NEVER pay you a single dime! You can NEVER earn any money with it!
Who is PaidLeaf for?
PaidLeaf is only for those who would like to risk wasting their time and energy to find out for themselves how crappy the platform actually is.
There’s absolutely nothing inherently wrong with needing to see with your own eyes if my claims are true or not.
However, I would like to warn you that the chances of earning moey online by lying on your couch staring at the ceiling all day long are way more than the chances of earning actual money with PaidLeaf.
In fact, I am so confident that you won’t be able to earn even a single penny with PaidLeaf that if you do, you can contact me with proof and I will deposit $100 more right in your account just for being wrong…
Who is PaidLeaf NOT for?
PaidLeaf is definitely NOT for people who want to earn money online.
Maybe you want to build a full-time income online to quit your job or maybe you are in need of some extra money to provide for your family. Maybe you are working a part-time job and need a supplementary income to cover your expenses, or maybe you want to gain the freedom to work whenever and from wherever you want in order to be able to travel around the world.
Or you might have tried other MMO and GPT platforms and systems but failed to meet your financial goals and you are still looking for the real deal.
If you are one of those people, then you should absolutely check out Wealthy Affiliate or Project 24 at once because I assure you that PaidLeaf is never going to help you fulfill your financial goals, not in a million years.
What's Inside PaidLeaf?
PaidLeaf basically consists of the main members’ dashboard that you can see in the image right below.
On this dashboard, you’ll find
- your unique referral link
- an overview of the total clicks on your referral link
- the total number of people you have referred to PaidLeaf
- the number of tasks you have completed
- the amount of money PaidLeaf has credited you with for completing its tasks
- a leaderboard
- a bunch of other navigational links and social media sharing buttons
On the very left of the dashboard, there is a menu which helps you navigate through the entire platform.
Below the menu, you can find a Skype address of your account manager who you can contact when you have any questions or need support.
Let’s dig a little deeper, shall we?

PaidLeaf Success Stories & Testimonials
There is a number of success stories/payment proofs and positive testimonials published on PaidLeaf’s website.
PaidLeaf payment proofs -> paidleaf.com/proof
PaidLeaf testimonials -> paidleaf.com/video-testimonials
Just a heads up, every single one of those payment proofs and testimonials is 100% fake.
Let me explain why starting with the payment proofs.
PaidLeaf Fake Payment Proofs
First of all, as you can see in the images below, the exact same payment screenshots that have been used for PaidLeaf have also been used as payment proofs for another similar scammy platform I’ve reviewed in the past called CashOG.
In addition to that, as you can see in the image below, the domain name paidleaf.com was registered on the 6th of September 2019.
This means that the platform didn’t even exist before 06/09/2019 and yet if you take a closer look, somehow all of the payment proofs above seem to have taken place before that date.
This could mean two things…
Either paidleaf.com was paying people before it even existed or its payment proofs are fake.
Let’s move on to the testimonials.
PaidLeaf Fake Positive Testimonials
The positive testimonials that you can find on PaidLeaf’s website are not recorded by actual PaidLeaf members but rather by paid actors.
For instance, the video below is one of those positive PaidLeaf testimonials.
However, as you can see in the image below, the guy who has recorded this positive testimonial is actually a paid actor who is offering his spokesperson services as a freelancer in Fiverr.
This means that companies like PaidLeaf pay him to record videos saying whatever they like.
Same goes for the guy below…
Using fake payment proofs and fake positive testimonials is actually a crime as they directly influence the decision of an individual to sign up and use PaidLeaf when they would otherwise not if those fake payment proofs and testimonials didn’t exist.
How Much Does PaidLeaf Cost?
PaidLeaf is free to join.
However, it’s not really free to use in its entirety.
You see, in order to be able to complete some of the tasks on its $30 TaskWall, you’ll be asked to submit your mobile phone number.
If you do so, you’ll start receiving dozens of promotional text messages per month by various services at your own cost. And those text messages aren’t cheap at all. Just one text message could cost up to $5 and sometimes even more.
Despite the fact that there are probably ways to unsubscribe from those services, I would never trust scammy platforms such as PaidLeaf with my mobile phone number in any way.
Plus, if you think about it since PaidLeaf will ban your account the moment you request a cashout, there’s really no point whatsoever in trying to complete those tasks in the first place.
- Free to join
1 • Free to Join
The sole PaidLeaf pro is that it’s free to join.
This way, if you decide to give the platform a try, you’ll just waste some of your time and energy and not any of your money.
Be careful though not to submit your phone number anywhere within PaidLeaf or you’ll probably end up wasting money as well after all.
- Has just one pro
- Unrealistic claims
- Fake payment proofs and positive testimonials
- Additional charges to complete tasks
- Fake contact information
- Unable to cashout
- Potential hacking danger
1 • Has Just One Pro
The fact that I have been busting my head to figure out a second PaidLeaf pro for the last hour without any luck just bums me out.
2 • Unrealistic Claims
Just like the majority of completely useless MMO platforms do, PaidLeaf uses a lot of unrealistic earning claims in order to convince people to join it.
For example, the first thing that you’ll see when you land on PaidLeaf’s website is a huge banner saying “Make $500 Today!” (see image below).
First of all, earning $500 online in one day could be possible only for established digital marketers with a ton of experience. It’s impossible for a beginner with no targeted audience to make that kind of money online in just a day, or even a month to be truthful.
Secondly, PaidLeaf will never actually pay you so it doesn’t really matter if you are the best digital marketer in the world, you will never earn $500 by using it, not today, and not in a million years.
Furthermore, PaidLeaf claims to have paid $44 million to over 300K of its members. At the time of this review (10/9/2019), PaidLeaf exists for only 4 days…
It’s 100% impossible for a 4-day old platform to have paid so much money to so many people in such a short amount of time.
Each one of those extraordinary claims is just a pathetic attempt of PaidLeaf to lure you in.
3 • Fake Payment Proofs and Positive Testimonials
I really hate it when crappy platforms such as PaidLeaf try to trick people into joining and using them by employing fake success stories, fake testimonials, and fake payment screenshots.
First of all, the fake payment screenshots that PaidLeaf uses, prove that it indeed doesn’t pay its members… If it did, they wouldn’t publish fake payment proofs and risk their credibility and trustworthiness. They would just publish some real ones!
Secondly, the fact that PaidLeaf’s creators have paid actors to record positive testimonials shows that they know their platform sucks so bad that it would never get authentic positive testimonials from people who have actually tried it.
Lastly, those fake payment proofs and fake positive testimonials result in a ton of people wasting their time and energy into PaidLeaf who otherwise wouldn’t if those payment proofs didn’t exist.
According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), using fake positive testimonials/success stories is considered a violation as it encourages customers to invest in a product or service they otherwise wouldn’t, thereby defrauding the customer, which is actually illegal and subject to huge penalties.
4 • Additional Charges
As I’ve mentioned earlier, in order to qualify for a cashout of your PaidLeaf earnings you need to complete at least 5 tasks from the $30 TaskWall.
In order to complete those tasks, you’ll be required to submit your phone number and agree to subscribe to paid text-message services which could cost you up to $50 dollars per month and maybe even more.
So, not only PaidLeaf will never let you get your hands on your earnings, but you could also end up losing a lot of money while attempting to complete tasks in order to qualify for your first cashout.
5 • Fake Contact Information
PaidLeaf provides 2 means of contact with its support team.
The first one is through the email email@example.com
I used an email checker to see if this email is valid or not and as you can see in the image below, it’s not!
The second means of contacting PaidLeaf’s support team is through an “account manager’s” Skype address @paidleaf.ollie
A simple Skype search for that address reveals that this contact doesn’t really exist either.
So, as it seems, there’s no one to contact regarding PaidLeaf. If you have any questions, there’s no one there to answer them. If you require any support, there’s no one there to provide it to you.
Once you join PaidLeaf, you are all alone…
6 • Unable to Cashout
The biggest con of PaidLeaf is that it will never let you get your hands on the money you’ve earned by referring people to it or completing its other tasks.
Even if it didn’t have any other cons and like a thousand more pros, this con alone beats the whole purpose of investing any time and energy in the platform in the first place.
Trying to make money with PaidLeaf would be like buying a car with no wheels to go on a road trip – it’s just pointless…
7 • Potential Hacking Danger
Just now, I came across a survey task on PaidLeaf’s $30 TaskWall which didn’t require me to submit my phone number so I thought that I should give it a try to see what it’s about.
However, before I even got to access it, my antivirus went off giving me the alert below:
As it seems, some of PaidLeaf’s tasks lead to 3rd party websites which contain viruses that could damage valuable files and information on your computer or phone.
However, the worst part is that those viruses could enable hackers to get their hands on personal data and sensitive information of yours such as the login credentials to your social media, email, or even your bank accounts.
If you don’t have an internet security or antivirus program installed make sure to stay clear of PaidLeaf at all costs…
If you’ve already accessed the platform without having any protection in place, you must immediately purchase an antivirus and scan your entire system in order to ensure that your computer hasn’t caught a virus and that your personal data and sensitive information are safe.
So, What Now?
Okay, so you read this PaidLeaf review in its entirety…
Well, as I see it, right now you have 4 options…
- You either waste your time and effort trying to make money online with PaidLeaf (awful choice)
- You check out my top suggestions Project 24 or Wealthy Affiliate, which are proven to have helped hundreds of people earn their living online (optimal choice)
- You take a look at the dozens of others reviews I’ve put together hoping you’ll find something which suits you better there
