Nigeria gets first paid to click website

Nigeria-based ICT firm Hexanet Solutions has launched the first pay-per-click (PPC) website in Nigeria named Skorty.com that rewards users for clicking and viewing adverts placed on the site.


Hexanet said the site will enable Nigerians who spend a lot of time surfing the Net to make some money.

Speaking at the official launch of the website in Nigeria’s commercial capital Lagos, Okeoguale Justice, the marketing director of Hexanet, said that users of the website from within and outside Nigeria will be paid for clicking and reviewing adverts placed by companies on the site.

Explaining how the system works, Okeoguale said that Skorty.com is based on the pay-per-click business model, which drives massive traffic from visitors who work from home.

The site also creates opportunities for everyone who can access the website from work or anywhere, as long as they are connected to the Internet, he said.

“Skorty.com is a paid-to-click website, or simply called PTC website, which acts as the middleman between advertisers and consumers. The advertisers pay for displaying their adverts on the PTC website, and a part of this payment goes to the viewer when he views the adverts,” Okeoguale explained.

On the mode of payment, Okeoguale said that users are free to make withdrawals of earnings any time they have earned a minimum of US$3 (approx N100).

Hexanet has also simplified the mode of withdrawal by providing its users with what it described as “the easiest way to withdraw their funds” including Liberty Reserve, known to be Nigeria’s most widely used online payment service.

With a free and easy registration procedure, Okoeguale stated that in addition to making extra cash, visitors to the site can avail themselves of the numerous benefits from the company’s top members in China, Japan, USA, and other countries.

“This is so since a [pay-to-click] site is not very common in Africa especially Nigeria,” Okoeguale noted.
