    TSU money in the shops

    Back when T's had 200k+ unique daily visitors, a third party Web site set up a function where you could pay via Tsu $. That website was infected with male are last time I tried to access it and none of the big users cared enough to help me find the person who could sort it. Which tells me that no one is using Tsu $ for anything other than donations. Having been through the process of getting paid, Tsu are not consistent and ban accounts rather than pay out. Tsu currently has about 63K unique visitors, the majority of which are in Asia so revenue is less than $500 per day for the entire platform. And remember that unique visitors number is bumped up by all the people with more than 1 account, so real numbers are probably less than 25k per day. If they haven't already used up their investor funding they will sooner rather than later. Perhaps they plan to sell all the content people posted. My heart goes out to all those still trying to make it work, there are other platforms where payout is easier.

    PayPal or Western Union

    WU claim to charge just £2.90 to send up to £500 to a bank account. Tsu take 3%, but I'm not sure Tsu use WU.

    Falling views, but possible developments

    You earn money from the value obtained by the people Viewing your content as well as the people viewing the content in your network. Tsu earn money from ads - views and clickthroughs. The value of the view/clickthrough varies in different parts of the world - generally speaking US based views are worth more than European and African/Asian view worth less than European views. Why? - it's partly about the amount of discretionary income that people are willing to spend on line and partly about the number of advertisers available (and what they are willing to pay) in the geographic centres. Some geographic locations like India/Pakistan/northern Africa are known to have bot nests/pay people to click on ads/view pages... so advertisers get little return (eg sales) from these areas. If Tsu's ranking is in the top 5k sites in the US, more advertisers will be attracted in that country (and same goes for the other geographic advertisers) - but I'm not sure how strongly Tsu pursue advertisers directly vs how much they just let programmes like Google AdSense to drive advertising.

    I monitor Alexander where Tsunami has fallen from 4G to 9.9k and the largest user population now include India and Pakistan. Tsu's revenue is based on views and click throughs adjusted for country of viewing. Their algorithm doesn't state reward for likes and comments. Instead multiple viewing of the same post may result in other ads being displayed or an increase in number of unique visitors per day. If you monitor newly made accounts you will see the number of view bot nests reducing although they are still out there. And recently I Made it onto a spammers block list - which makes me check all of their accounts harder for scams and copyright infringement. The real issue is about being able to make a significant enough amount of money to make a difference. I will continue to plug away. My biggest fear is that at TSU will sell out. Even now their biggest users are using a different platform to converse and earn.. and in theory Tsu could have provided that functionality directly.

    Original content profile and monetizaton

    No it doesn't work like that. You get the same % split of the revenue earned. So if the members viewing you page have ad blockers switched on, you earn nothing. You earn a very small % sharing someone's post... do not ad much as sharing you original posts. You will not be paid for spam posts, porn or Google images for which you don't own the copyright.

    Some of my thoughts about Tsu

    It is hard to accept sometimes you just have to start over on Tsu. I also had an account banned. ... never learned why. Having started over, I have been more successful than I would have been on my first account. All the best!

    @FanZine - Requested Payment

    In the end it took less than one week. I got payment via PayPal on the Friday afterwards.

    PAYMENT

    All you need to do is put in your address. After they have checked your POSTS, they will ask for your PayPal account information. Mine was paid into the account in under 1 week.

    @FanZine - Requested Payment

    Well, after several months of giving away most of my earnings, I have asked to redeem my earnings.... Requested redemption - Saturday Tsu requested PayPal address to be confirmed - Monday I'm told it may take up to two weeks to receive payment. I'm based in the UK, so payment is done through Paypal

    Steve Clark paid $100 via Paypal

    Congratulations! Sounds like it pays to follow the rules! I'm just coming up to my first request - I've given away most of what I earned this year.

    Google images don't get paid?

    You can also use royalty free photos - www.pixabay.com is one site which offers photos for reuse.

    If you use an ad blocker none of the items you view earn any money as Tsu hasn't earned anything. I really don't see the problem having ads.. . Facebook has loads more ads...
