There are certain words that just give me the heebie jeebies when I'm looking at a new way to make money online. Once someone mentions “instant”, “6 fix figures”, “push button”, “fast”, “quick” or “no work”, I already know it's probably going to be some BS. But I don't like to ASSume because you know how that saying goes. So with that in mind I'm going to try write my Instant Payday Network Review with an open mind. Hopefully I'll be happily surprised but I suspect that I won't. But let's dig in, shall we?
What is Instant Payday Network?
The program was created by Jeff Buchanan from California. Watching the sales video you get the feeling that Jeff is honest and sincere. He forgoes all the hype that usually comes with this kind of offer. Instant Payday Network is based on CPA (Cost Per Action) offers which is a way for companies to generate leads. Jeff gives you the ‘incentive' of making money by filling out a form and completing an offer.
How is Instant Payday Network supposed to work?
First off, it's free to join and you don't have to bring your credit card. Yet. Then there are 4 Steps for you to take.
- Step 1: Sign-up at express.mycashfreebies.com where you find links to companies that pay you for referring people to try their products. You have to complete some trial offers which credit you anywhere from a few cents to larger amounts. Once you accumulate a total of at least $1, you are done with step 1.
- Step 2: Sign-up at double.mycashfreebies.com and do the same as in step 1.
- Step 3: Once you completed steps 1 & 2 you will get access to the Instant Payday Network back office and get Free use of their Marketing System. You are provided with a free squeeze page (lead capture page) and a free email auto-responder system. You can now drive traffic to the squeeze page and when a lead joins Instant Payday Network and does the same things you did, you will get paid for each referral. The pay-out is at least $20 for the company in step 1, and at least $30 for company in step 2.
- Step 4: Forget about step 4 for the time being; it is optional and I will get to it in just a bit.
Do people really make money with Instant Payday Network?
Some do, some don't. Some make more than others, and some make none at all. It all depends how you approach the whole thing and how much effort you are willing to put in.
First off, the companies using CPA are for real, they do pay 20 or 30 bucks for a referral because they know that they will make money of them. But it's up to you creating enough traffic to your squeeze page.
So yes, people do make money with Instant Payday Network. I have seen reports of folks claiming to make in excess of $10,000 per months, and others that make between $500 and $1,000.
What are the Instant Payday Network complaints and concerns?
There are NO complaints filed with the BBB which is unusual and definitely a good thing. However, you will find complaints on different forum sites and in comment sections of various member websites.
I did not order anything but my credit card has been charged!
My, my, oh my. Most trial offers you complete in step 1 & 2 are FREE but have some conditions attached. It is up to you to ‘carefully read‘ and “completely understand‘ these terms. In particular, keep detailed records of the trial period (start date AND end date), cancel method and other stuff of the fine print). Remember, most orders are for physical products, and cancellation period starts at ORDER date and not RECEIVING date. If you plan to cancel anyways, you may be better off to cancel even before you receive the goods.
It is darn hard to cancel an order!
This is directly tied into the point above. The advertising companies want to make money, of course. They also know that many people referred through Instant Payday Network just playing the ‘click and cancel' game to keep the flow of incoming money alive. So it's easy to understand that some companies revert to delay tactics to avoid cancellation. Good companies shouldn't make you jump through hoops. But a good way to determine this is try looking for the contact information of the company before you sign up. Then try to contact them to determine if their customer service is actually responsive. If they are then you know it's probably safe to proceed with the offer. If not then I would probably skip that offer and find one that is more responsive.
There is NO live support
This is a big negative in my opinion. I love programs with a member forum you can turn to if you need a helping hand. True, the back office at instant Payday Network is pretty simple and easy to understand. However, no matter how simple a program may be, there will always be questions that need to be answered. A BIG MINUS in my book.
Instant Payday Network is an illegal pyramid scam!
Yes, there are indeed people out there that believe that Instant Payday Network is a pyramid scheme. That's pure nonsense. In a pyramid scheme you will be building a down line that provides you with residual income for as long as the person you recruited stays active and also recruits new members. In our case here, you will receive a ONE-TIME referral fee, and that's it, even if a person you referred places multiple order with the same company.
The Infamous STEP 4 of Instant Payday Network!
IT IS OPTIONAL and absolutely irrelevant. Mr. Buchanan offers you to join, from all places, the equally infamous Empower Network, the largest pyramid scam ever on the internet. When Jeff launched his program, Empower Network was in its hey days. This is not the case any longer. The pyramid crumbled and left tens of thousands people stranded with losses in the thousands of dollars. So you'll want to pass on Step 4 if you know what's good for you.
Is Instant Payday Network a Scam?
The work at home opportunity provided by Jeff Buchanan is legitimate and not a scam. It is definitely not a pyramid scheme as so many folks may think it is. People can and do make money with Instant Payday Network.
It does have some serious downsides though. By taking a bunch of offers you will be spreading your credit card info all over the place. Keeping track of all transactions can be tedious and you need to be organized. Canceling orders is difficult if you pick the wrong companies. So like most get paid to try offers it can be a gift or curse depending on how organized you are. It's definitely not for everyone.
Well that's all from me. As always I would love to hear from you. I know a lot of people feel very strongly about this method of making money. You either love or hate it. So please, chime in and let us know what's on your mind. Before I forget, there is a much better………

I would never give my credit card for a free trial. Creeps me out.
I don’t want to even get near this one.
Thanks for the heads up.
Thanks for sharing your opinion Phyllis.
I am sorry but this sounds like a scam. First of all to the business offering the free trial. They are paying for advertising for their company to get new customers and sometimes repeat customers. When you have to spend hours doing this to make a little money that is suppose to add up to more that is not an income worth working for. Thanks for the review, I will be passing this opportunity by.
Hey Robin, thanks for chiming in. I know people have a love hate relationship when it comes to doing offers to get paid. In terms of extra money they tend to be better than surveys or some of the other ways to quickly make money online because they actually pay you a lot more.
That said there are downfalls if you’re not organized, pick bad companies, etc. I’ve made some decent money doing offers with other companies. So I know it works and it’s not a scam. Is it worth the effort all the time? Not for me which is why I’ve moved on to other better things. I don’t particularly like the way this company goes about paid offers. And I definitely don’t like they promote the defunct Empower Network. So just on that I would avoid it. But the concept of doing paid offers is legitimate. It just may not be right for everyone.
Either way I appreciate your insight. It’s always welcomed.
