Product: Ad Click Xpress (formerly Profit Clicking, JustBeenPaid)
Overall Ranking: 0 out of 100 or 0/5 stars
Price: free to join, but to earn money you need to buy ad packages at $10
Owner: Frederick Mann
AdClick Xpress (ACX) has been around for a few years under different names. It started out in 2012 as JustBeenPaid (JBP) then changed to Profit Clicking and now ACX.
JBP did work for a time and some people made a lot of money, but of course, a system that relies on people investing money so other people can make money isn’t sustainable.
After a while, JustBeenPaid stopped paying out, and consequently, they acquired a bad name. So with a new website and new name they started again as Profit Clicking. But guess what? More problems with payouts and thousands of people complaining. The answer another new website with a different name again and that’s where we are today with AdClick Xpress.
Another reason for the name changes is a warning issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Here is a link to a page from the SEC warning that JustBeenPaid, JSS Tripler (which is also part of JBP), and Profit Clicking might be scams.
The owner of JustBeenPaid and Ad Click Xpress is supposed to be Frederick Mann, although it’s not certain if he really exists.
In this review, I will show you why (if you have not already got the picture) you must not sign up with AdClick Xpress.
What is AdClick Xpress?
ACX is an online advertising platform where businesses can pay to advertise and its many members can earn some revenue by viewing those ads.
Who is it for?
This program could be for someone who wants to advertise their business to get more traffic. Or it could for people who want to earn some easy money online.
This is the type of program that could seem particularly appealing to someone who has no experience of making money online. You are assured a good return on your investment with very little work. Schemes that make promises like this are very often scams.
How does AdClick Xpress work?
It is free to sign up to AdClick Xpress but in order to earn any money, you have to buy Ad packages. There are really two parts to AdClick Xpress the advertising and earning money.
If you want to get new visitors to your website it is possible to purchase a number of guaranteed views. With a $10 Business Packs, you get 600 views and it is possible to buy as many packs as you like. ACX also has another package called Prime Advertising in which you can choose a banner ad, text ad, or a full-page ad.
As the people who are viewing your ads are doing so to get paid this is probably not a very effective way of advertising.
To earn money on AdClick Xpress you have to purchase ad packs at $10 a pack. Once you have your ad packs, this is how things are meant to work.
- must view ads to earn money. You need to view each ad for 12 seconds to earn your rewards.
- each ad pack earns 2% per weekday and 1% Saturday and Sunday
- a $10 Ad Pack is worth $15 in 88 days
Now that’s a $5 profit in nearly 90 days, probably doesn’t sound fantastic. But, what if you brought 100 ad packs which would set you back $1000. You would:
- earn $20 per weekday and $10 at the weekend
- at the end of the 88 day period, your $1000 would be worth $1500
There’s a limit on the maximum number of Ad Packages you can purchase:
- 1000 per hour
- 5,000 per day
- you are not allowed to have more than 25,000 Ad Packages at any given time.
AdClick Xpress say that you can withdraw the cash or buy new ad packs every day. To withdraw your earnings you must have a minimum of $20 in your account. Another alternative would be to withdraw some cash and buy some ad packs with the rest.
They use several payment processors Solid Trust Pay, EGO Pay, Payza, Perfect Money, OK Pay, and Paytoo to enable you to withdraw your earnings.
When you buy your Ad Packs you also have the chance to earn referral commissions. You can earn 10% from people who are referred directly from you and 5% from people who are referred from your referrals. This is an option to earn some extra money but is not a requirement.
Sounds good, but don’t rush in.
All this sounds great, and when you go to their site, it is very easy to see why so many people have signed up in the past and will probably sign up in the future. This is a fast and easy way to make money in theory. The problems start when you want to take your money out of the system.
You may be able to draw out small amounts, however, this may be used as a way to build your trust so that you invest more. Large amounts don’t get paid out, consequently, your earnings are only virtual. You can see how much you have earned, but you will never see it in your bank account. This program is nothing more than a Ponzi scheme.
In the terms of service, you can see that ACX is ready to transfer, yet again, into another program. This certainly doesn’t instill any confidence in the program. Would they do this if they were a legitimate business? I think we all know the answer.
Pros & Cons
- free ad pack when you sign up
- no large payouts
- you lose your money
Tools and training
There is some very limited training on techniques for getting people to sign up and on marketing methods. There are also some marketing materials (banners, PowerPoint presentations, sample emails, ads for affiliate site)
Help and Support
To get help, you are advised to see the FAQ as a first step and if you cannot see your question there, you can submit a ticket. The waiting time when I was on the site was estimated to be 48 hours.

You can find many complaints against AdClick Xpress, JustBeenPaid, and Profit Clicking, here are just a few examples.
I particularly liked this comment which just about sums up AdClick Xpress, JustBeenPaid, or Profit Clicking.
My final opinion
As you can see in the comments above, many people have lost a lot of money in this scheme. So don’t join this program, the only people who make any money are the owners.
I have even seen some people trying to sell their AdClick Xpress accounts, accounts that have thousands of un-withdrawable dollars. Some of these poor people are really desperate, but do accounts with un-withdrawable dollars have any value? Not in my opinion.
Remember if a scheme seems too good to be true it probably is. Always do your due diligence.
What to do now
If you are looking for a legitimate way to make money online there are some good programs that can help you. ACX just entices you into a system where you will invest time and money and never be paid.
My #1 recommendation teaches you how to build a sustainable business. A training platform ideal for beginners, it’s free to join, you get access to 2 free websites, a getting started training course, 24/7 help and support, and a friendly online community.

If you have any experience with AdClick Xpress, Just Been Paid or Profit Clicking your feedback would be very welcome.
AdClick Xpress Review
Description: ACX offers businesses the chance to advertise and members have the chance of earning comissions by viewing adverts.
Price: free to join, but to earn you must buy ad packs at $10
My opinion: AdClick Xpress has a history of not paying it members, do not join this program it’s a scam.
I am one of the victims of this program called adclickxpress, joined it from JBP it swallowed not only my money but including that of my friends also, numbering about five. It’s purely a Scam.
Sorry to hear that Matthew, unfortunately, you’re one of many to lose money with ACX.
Total scam,i joined 2 years ago and thankfully only small,10 Packs $50,i have clicked 99% of the 2 years and my earnings are $13.82 i have tried 10 times to withdraw without success.Only a small loss,but,very disappointing.Do not touch them.
Thanks for your feedback Trevor and you’re right people shouldn’t join ACX!
I lost over 3K of seed money in 2013, when the scam was under the name PROFIT CLICKING. Today I have over 35K in my AdClick Xpress account and no way to access it. AdClick Xpress keeps sending me emails though, they want me to keep investing to access my funds. No way! I don’t understand how this people are still in business and why there was no class action against them!
Thanks for your feedback Di and sorry to hear about your losses with ACX. I know it’s annoying that they are allowed to continue, the only way they can be stopped is if enough people file complaints with the FTC. Sharing your experience, as you have here, is also something that may help others avoid this scam.
Why do all websites like this give a bad review for numerous others yet they have this special recommendations of their own. Come on people its all a scam, no matter what you do online the word scam follows, then hundreds of helpful review websites give negative reviews only for you to sign up with their recommendation which in fact is a scam also. When will people learn like anything in life you have to work at it there is no magic button that makes you a millionaire period. Just stop being so gullible, you don’t just hand over thousands of $ to a website you hardly know, do it slowly & do not invest money you cannot afford to lose. There endeth my rant.
Thanks for your comment, Gary. While I appreciate what you’re saying all I’m trying to do is to help people avoid these scams or get rich quick schemes.
My recommendation isn’t a scam it doesn’t promise easy money. In fact, they tell you it will take work and time! Before becoming a paid member there is a completely free trial, you don’t even need to give your credit card details! Once you are a (free) member you will see they provide some great, easy to follow step by step training. There is no guarantee you will succeed, it depends on you!
I completely agree with you there is no magic button to riches and people must work hard online to be successful. Thanks for your rant!
The program is a complete scam. I remember in 2012 when it was named just been paid I lost 2000 dollars. I am from Ghana West Africa and would like to tell viewers to stay away from them. God will curse them
Thanks for sharing your experience Sulemana. They just change names and continue to scam others!
I read all your comments regarding the adclickxpress, but no one suggest a way for recovering our money. I am also a victime of this scam called ACX, we must doing something for stopping them.
Sorry to hear you’ve lost money to Ad Click Xpress. Unfortunately, no one seems to have found a way of recovering their money. I agree it would be good to stop them from taking other peoples money, keep posting comments like this on other reviews and forums, it may help to stop others falling for this scheme.
All the best,
There is a way to slowly get your money back out. I’ve noticed that if you log into your account and go to “Basic Wallet Exchange” you can sale off funds in your Basic Wallet at a reduced rate for AD PACK money. You can buy ad packs / start making withdraws on the generated interest. Very slow, but better then just leaving it all there.
People using ACX….don’t use any money you can’t afford to lose. Your house payment , food money, etc.
Thanks for the tip, hopefully it will help some people to get a little money back.
This seems to be a superb piece that impressed me as being well researched and informative as I find the information to be credible enough to restrict my greedy impulse to rush in and invest my retirement benefits.
Thanks for the review but it would have been better if this wasn’t a pure pitch to encourage readers to join Wealthy Affiliate.
Wealthy works best for newbie marketers looking for a hand holding program but seasoned marketers don’t need to be pitched to join Wealthy Affiliate when we search the internet to find feedback on various program we might have a hunch about.
Good interview anyway.
Glad my review might have stopped you from investing any money in Ad Click Express.
I do promote Wealthy Affiliate as an alternative to these make money online programs as I know it’s legitimate and it will give newbies some good training on setting up their own online business. There are also many seasoned marketers who are members of WA for the excellent hosting, they help the newbies and they keep up to date with the latest developments in the marketing world by interacting with other marketers.
Thanks for your comment,
adclick express took $400 from could not withdraw a dime. Federal trade commission. will hold them accountable
Sorry to hear about your losses. Maybe one day the FTC will do something about ACX but there are so many scams around they can’t go after them all. Thanks for sharing,
Ash here from India also lost lot of money in PC and itsa shame that this people r still running such fraud companies.I hope persons in US who suffered from PC JBP n ACX will take any action thr.
And Peter can u plz suggest any good companies for online work as u do research in this so plz,
I agree it’s a shame that these companies that fraud people out of their money are allowed to continue. One day perhaps they will be closed down. Finding good companies for online work is difficult, there are many scams or otherwise, time-consuming jobs for little pay. Therefore I recommend starting your own online affiliate marketing business. It is a lot of work and you need to be determined and patient but the rewards can make it worthwhile. I learned how to build my online business with a training platform, Wealthy Affiliate. If you’re serious about earning money online it’s worth taking a look. There is a free trial but to succeed you will need the premium membership which is $49 per month.
All the best,
I have also invested 500.00 Dollars in 2013, and place request for draw 100.00 Dollars but in vain.
Now today I have more than 2200.00 dollars in ACX wallet but I can’t draw from my account.
Site request for $8.00 submit for draw out $15.00 in this way you lost again $8.00.
Please support us now what can me and like me many victims do.
We all will be thankful to you.
Unfortunately, there is nothing I can suggest that will help you get your money out of ACX. I definitely wouldn’t pay them any money to draw out a small amount. Sorry I can’t be of more help.
Hi, my name is Cristian, i just remembered about this ponzi scheme and wanted to see what ever is doing at this time :). I actually made some nice money with it back in 2012-2013 when (restarts) as they were being called back then (the process where your virtuall ballance money were forcefully transformed into matrixes that actually could give u more money over a longer period but were even harder to access and withraw to your actual bank account) were some 6-7 months apart. I invested some 500$ compounded like a mad man for 9 months and got out as much money as i could (some 6000$ withdrawn to the real world :)) ) but after that…in mid 2013 as more people started to participate, things started to crumble, restarts were 2 moths appart, withraw limist were set to 250$/day and i was sitting like 13 hours straight on the computer to get that 1 or 2 minutes window when payments were issued. I started getting annoyed when enough restart were done till my whole wallet was cut and recut and recut and was sent to that far far place where money was hard to reach (the matrix system was a very complicated one and here is not the place to explain it :)…..last drop was when not even matrixes (were i was having some 16000$ at that time) were reacheble until new money from the real world would not be poured in (i see now that i must put in 8$ to unlock and have access to 15$ that are blocked in my “basic wallet” (the new name given for the matrix zone)
All in all i encourage people to NOT invest in this site, please be very critical whenever investing money and mostly in the online medium (where u can me presented with lost of amazing stories, fake success proofs and nice things that are not real at all)….also be aware that this programs have referal bonuses…u can lose friends or family relations when encouraging others to put their money into stuff like this. I am very sad to read all these bad situations and mega losses some of the people had…..another suggestion…always play with money that u can lose..never invest money u cant afford loosing!
Wish u all the best, and much respect for the owner of this site for letting the word out and informing people
Thanks for sharing your experience Cristian. At least you made some money with this program in the early days. As you say, you really need to be very careful when investing money online, there are too many of these get rich quick schemes around. Any program that promises large returns for just investing your money should be avoided. I hope people are slowly getting the message – to make money online takes times and hard work!
Thanks for your comment,
Hi Peter! Are you saying that all PTC programmes and sites are scams? I want to know better for a well informed decision here. Are there no genuine sites for PTC? Thank you.
No, I’m not saying all Paid To Click sites are scams. If you want to click ads you can find some sites that are legit like Neobux or Clixsense among others. However, it’s not something I recommend, you spend too much of your time for a very small reward.
All the best for the New Year!
YUP most of these are just rip offs like 90% of everything online that has you join and then hook you with paying to earn money will just rip you off.
I tried getting people to my real money maker just make videos on youtube associate account with google Adsense BOOM you make money period paid month after you make $100 minimum Direct deposit to your checking account.
LOL o well I earn on my own now every month $300 and going for more now legit all my own.
Yes, this another scheme that is out there to get your money, they promise great returns but generally don’t payout. If you’ve found your own way of making money and it’s legit, well done! I wish you continued success.
Thank you so much for this review. I was gonna join adclickexpress but decided to read reviews first. This is very helpful. Keep up the great work.
You’re welcome! Always a good idea to check the reviews online before signing up for any of these make money online programs. There are so many scams!
Thanks for your visit,
Is there any way we can all work together, and find who the owners/managers are other than Frederick Mann? I think the more we can expose these scumbags, the more people will think twice about stealing from people. They really should be in jail, but finding and exposing them is a start. At least bank robber only steal from the rich and insured. These guys are far worse, they steal from the low income , trying to get through life in this new world…and everyone else.
I share your sentiments about these people. I wish there was more we could do to stop all the scammers. Writing reviews that highlight these programs is my contribution. In addition, I encourage people to report these scams to the relevant authorities and leave comments on blogs that help protect consumers. People must always do their research before signing up for any make money online program.
Until they do people like Frederick Mann will continue to prosper.
Thanks for your visit,
I lost $200 in 2015 on their get rich scam
Sorry to hear that Ronald. Unfortunatey you are one of many. Hopefully they won’t keep going much longer.
All the best,
I would love to buy your account shoot me an email email@example.com that goes for anyone that was scammed ill purchase your accounts since you no longer want them
I have allowed your comment as some people might be interested in selling their accounts. I just wonder what you hope to recuperate from these accounts.
I am interested in selling all my ACX.
Best to contact Brian directly with the email he has given.
I have around $5000 with PC that now AdclickXpress and I was never able to withdraw a penny . It’s a total scam . My question what we are going to do to get our money back. Sue them, arrest them , there must be something, thanks, Ridha .A
Sorry to hear of your problems with Profit Clicking which is now ACX. Unfortunately, I don’t think you will ever get your money back, there are many people in your position. If you are in the US you could file a complaint with the FTC or if you live elsewhere file a complaint with econsumer.gov. These organizations won’t solve your specific problem, but maybe, if they receive enough complaints they will take some action against ACX. However, after all these years I have my doubts.
Best wishes for 2016.
3/4 of the old staff are still waiting for their salaries which they didn’t receive for months. Also .com is now .is.
I wonder who owns it now – Frederick Mann allegedly died a year or so ago.
I can’t believe how they still can stay in business and nobody going to the SEC etc. Maybe they did, but ACX not having much visible funds it wasn’t worth doing anything about?
Thanks for your feedback. Sorry to hear about the staff not being paid but I can’t say this comes as a great surprise. These people seem to only care about making money for themselves. I did see that their name has changed from .com to .is. I wonder what the reasoning is behind this, .is is the top level domain for Iceland.
Who owns Ad Click Express remains a mystery, but then again I suppose no one wants to own up to owning this program.
I’m sure after all this time ACX have been reported to the authorities but whether they will ever do anything about them is another matter. There are so many scams online that the government agencies will only take action after numerous complaints against a company. So I would encourage anyone who has been scammed by ACX to report it.
Simply a scam! Lost all my money. Don’t be an idiot and join-or you can say goodbye to your money. Not worth the risk. Good review Peter. If everyone stops feeding this program with their money, they will eventually have to close down.
Sorry to hear you lost your money. There are so many stories of people losing large sums of money, everyone should really steer clear. Even though some say they are paying small amounts now, with their track record and the many lives they have ruined, they mustn’t be encouraged. So I agree with you, don’t join and don’t invest your money.
Thanks for sharing your experience,
Complete SCAM. Do not invest in AdclickXpress, if you do you will never see your money again
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I agree the best thing to do is not get involved at all.
EL CREADOR DE ESTA PIRAMIDE ES UN MALDITO ESTAFADOR QUE HA ROBADO A MILES DE PERSONAS EN TODO EL MUNDO CON OTRAS PIRÁMIDES SIMILARES. SI QUIEREN PERDER EL DINERO, INVIERTAN, PERO NO SE VAYAN A QUEJAR.
The creator of this pyramid is a damn swindler who has stolen thousands worldwide with similar pyramids schemes. If you want to lose your money, invest, but don’t complain.
Thanks for your thoughts on AdClick Xpress. I am sure this will help encourage readers not to join the program. I have translated your comment into English so they are understood by a wider audience.
All the best,
i dont know bot u guys but its paying me
Greetings from SolidTrust Pay.
You have successfully received money from a registered SolidTrust Pay member! Please be sure to keep this email as your receipt.
From STPay member: adclickxpress
Transaction Number: 30005209055
Note (if provided): Ad Click Xpress Withdraw #4428177-421335
Transaction Fees: $0.46
Really glad AdClick Xpress are paying you. Still I would be very careful and don’t invest too much of your own money. I still don’t think this is a sustainble business model and they have a history of paying out from time to time. It’s worth remembering that over time they have ruined several people lives, so use with caution.
All the best,
I was just clearing some folders on my pc when I came across this old Program I joined a few years ago,as you can see I allegedly have some money in my account $5,629.74 what a shame I have no way to access it.
I started this when I was first looking to try and make money on the Internet and new nothing about reviews or google.
So the old saying go’s IF IT LOOKS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT IS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE
Transfer of Your PC Basic Balances (Click here for Details – Click Here to Watch a Video)

[ B – A ] Rate
$10,633.48 $626.00 $0.00 50% of (A-B) + 100% of B $5,629.74 $0.00
I wonder how many people are in a similar situation. I have read of people trying to sell their AdClick accounts, but I can’t really see how they are worth anything. Have to put it down to experience I suppose!
Thanks for your visit,
I was about to sign up but decided to make a research. Thank you so much Peter for saving me from this scam. I have been trying to make money online but I always end up with a scam. Is there any program that is not a scam and that helps people make money online?
You have definitely done the right thing in researching Ad Click Xpress before joining, it’s a shame that more people don’t do this. There are too many scams waiting to catch us and they sound so good and believable that many get caught. However, there are a few programs that are legitimate. The way of making money from home, that I recommend is affiliate marketing and it’s a good idea to get some good training when starting. Now, this isn’t a get rich quick scheme, it takes hard work and time, but the potential income is more than with most other programs.
If you don’t think this is for you, there are the reward sites like Swagbucks or Clixsense, but with these sites you will spend a long time doing tasks for a small reward. I don’t recommend these types of sites.
If I can be of any further help let me know.
Just a big scam
You summed it up well.
If you are looking to earn money online never believe that it’s easy and quick. Working online is just like any other job, it takes a lot of effort and a certain time before you start making any money. It’s always a good idea to obtain some training from a legitimate company before you start. If you are considering starting an internet business, you can check out my preferred training platform, it free to join and have a look around.
If I can be of any help let me know.
Wow, how scandalous all of these companies, essentially one, are. How sad how some of these people lost a great deal of hard earned saving by messing around with “clicker” sites.
This was an excellent review of Ad Click Xpress. I think you said it best in you opening few paragraphs, something about how all these ad clicking systems that rely on new people investing money so other people can make money isn’t sustainable.
It’s so obvious in most of these ad click sites that the return on investment is impossible to maintain when they lure you in with talk of 120% profits on you ad shares.
I’ve seen all these companies and I think they’re all just a waste of time. If you want to make money online then invest in a proper education to learn how real online professionals do it.
So many people think making money online is just a click here and there, watch the money roll in, then call it a day. It sounds funny, but it’s so true.
Thanks for the excellent review I have come to expect from you Peter, much appreciated. And thanks for warning others about AdClickXpress – what a scam.
You are right, these companies are a waste of time. I think like you, if you want to make money online, then get some good training and build a legitimate business.
It’s a shame that a lot of people have lost money and wasted time with these programs, but they are still there and ready to change their name again when they see fit. All we can do is try and alert people to these scams and encourage them to fully research any program they invest in.
Thanks for your comment as always Todd.
I too have lost $16000 with this complete scam, a faceless bunch of scum with no ethics still advertising and scamming innocent people, please try and ruin them virally by sharing these posts on line so they end up with nothing.
Very sorry to hear you lost money with this scam. It terrible that they are allowed to continue after all these years. Hopefully by publishing “real reviews” we can save some people money.
All the best,
This program sounds like you are buying traffic to your website which is considered a bad SEO practice. It’s like you are manipulating the search engines and it’s going to hit you hard when the system finds out.
If you want to build a strong business online, do it the right way using proper advertising like PPC. Wealthy Affiliate provides a great training on this topic alone and it will give you some good basics on how to do it properly without wasting your money on the internet.
I would say if you choose to advertise with AdClick Xpress, you are buying low quality traffic. The people who look at your ad do so just to earn money, they are not interested in your product. So for most genuine products this site would not be good.
As most people come to this site to earn some easy money, unfortunately you find some low quality get rich quick schemes who advertise. They might have some success as the audience on ACX is likely to be susceptible to these types of adverts.
Although I certainly don’t recommend advertising with ACX the main problem is that people invest in this scheme and have no chance of ever seeing their money again.
Thanks for your visit,
Wow I cannot imagine investing money in this thing, let alone $20,000. I feel sorry for that person. It’s great that you’ve done this review so that others won’t make the same mistake. These people are finding all sorts of ways to keep scamming people. They are providing absolutely no value to anyone but simply making themselves richer. How can they live with themselves doing something like this. I am sure they would not like it to happen to them.
Yeah, some people have lost a lot of money in this scam and it pains me to read their stories. These programs seem so lucrative that people sign up without doing any research. Hopefully after reading reviews like this, they will realize there are no fast and easy ways to make money online and that before signing up for any program they must check it out thoroughly.
Thanks for your feedback, Peter
