    Back to savvystudent's original post...


    Has anyone used Qmee.com? I signed up last week via an invite and so far have cashed out £4.30 to my Paypal, and everything looks legit.

    The idea is that you install an app in your browser which when you search using Google, Bing, Amazon or eBay sometimes text ads will appear next to the results along with an amount you get for clicking on them. Tends to be around 7-15p depending on the search.

    It's still in beta and invite-only but I know there's a few codes around. This is the one I used and still seems to be working https://www.qmee.com/?invite=C9D41FA5

    I'm also thinking of installing on IE rather than on my main browser Chrome

    I'm having problems with it on chrome, trying to figure out if maybe its one of my settings but whenever I try click on an ad it won't load at all.
    Currently trying to find a way to download it for another web browser but can't seem to find that on Qmee either =/
    Anybody have any ideas?

    Hit and miss
    I'm finding Qmee very hit and miss - very lucky to get 2 x 5p a day, most of the time don't get anything. If anyone who is sucessfull at this wants to do a guide it would help the rest of us, ie how long you leave it between a search, what search terms you use, etc.

    Their opinion and my opinion of 'searching naturally' obviously differs!

    I like this it is good as long as you use it for genuine searches. Most of the time I forget it is on there and then their search results come up and I earn a bit of cash. Since we all search for things anyway it is good to earn something for using it.
    I joined on 26th May and already I have earned £1.61 for a total of 26 clicks.
    So just use it as you normally would and when you do click a result spend time on the site clicking around rather than coming off it straightaway.
    I like the fact you can request your cash owed anytime you want no minimum amount to reach.
    A very nice little earner.

    Thanks op.

    When I signed up, they ask you which search engine do you use (Google, Amazon or eBay). I opted for Google. Is it possible to still use this with the other two and still get credit?

    I have also had results come through on Amazon as well as Ebay.
    I requested my £1.61 this morning and it was in my Paypal Account in a few minutes.

    I signed up last week and got my invite yesterday and installed on Firefox. Used it on google, ebay and Amazon and got 78p in 1 day without really trying. Do agree that you need to explore the sites a bit when they show up on google and not just click on the link then close it down.

    Hi, hope someone can help, please .....

    I've downloaded the app, but after closing Internet Explorer as per the instructions, only Google comes up - there's nothing to say that Qmee has been installed. Is there something that I've missed doing, am I being even more thick than usual, or has anyone else had this problem?

    Thanks for any help received.

    Thanks very much.
  • mikecmr
    mine also says not verified but it still works, I would try downloading the software again.

    I have been searching all day and not had one result yet, waste of time
