Hello and welcome to the CashCrates review.
You want to find out whether you can really make some money with the website called CashCrates.co, right?
Whether someone shared the link on a social media or you just somehow stumbled upon it, the most important question is, is this a scam or a legit system that helps you to make some extra bucks on the site.
In this CashCrates Review, you are going to learn what is this all about how to check whether it is a scam or legit, and by the time you are done reading this post, you will know for sure how the CashCrates works (or does not work).
Please note, I am not a member or an affiliate for CashCrates. This review is based on research and information available online in the public domain. Any recommendation and conclusions are only opinions and may not apply to all persons or situations.
This is a new website that is getting more and more attention. In April 2020 the website has reached more than 150,000 monthly visits. No wonder people go visit this site. They believe they can make some fast money.
CashCrates is supposed to be a GPT site (get-paid-to), meaning that after signing up you can perform some tasks and make money by, downloading the apps, testing them, or watching videos.
Apparently you can make $20 or $40 bucks for each task.
Right after signing up, you are said to get a $50 bonus!
Let me tell you right now that these are just empty promises and no one gets paid.
Who Is Behind
When it comes to money-making websites or any website where you have to sign up, it is always a good idea to check who is behind it. There should be an “About” page on a website or some contact information where you can reach the support or creator of that website.
The CashCrates “About Us” section says something about how they started back in 2015. It says that in 2015 was “The launch of Cash Crates…”
Now, this is a simple lie.
The website CashCrates.co was registered only in April of 2020.
Here is the proof.
And here is a short video showing how you can also check the details about any domain.
(This specific video shows how to check the date of domain registration, of another scam website called inboxdollar.co, which does not exist anymore).
Note: Inboxdollar.co is redirected to another clone, called RewardDollars.
I just wanted to point out that there are lots of these scams and they look pretty similar. So once you know how to identify one or two of them, you sure will be able to recognize a new version of these Fake websites.
How to Contact the Creators of the CashForShare?
Here is another proof that the CashCrates site is not legit.
They have this email where you can contact them. So I have sent a short message to the email address “email@example.com” and this is the feedback I got.
Obviously, the email address does not exist.
I wanted to be sure so I did find another email address within their site:
The same “feedback” as well.
This is a big red flag. If there is no valid email, there is not a person who you can contact.
Who is it For?
By now you understand that CashCrates is better to avoid.
I mean, this system does not pay and everyone who signs up and is about to perform the tasks jeopardizes his/her personal data (email, credit card information, and other sensitive information).
I know that it seems tempting, especially the $50 sign up bonus, but it is just a bogus.
The entire CashCrates system is Fake.
It pretends to be a legit GPT site or also called survey sites.
Legitimate GPT sites are perfect ways how to make some money on the side.
The problem with these websites is that they don’t pay a lot. You can make approximately $100 or $200 (max) per month. You can’t scale it up either in terms of revenue.
I will leave links to legitimate sites at the bottom of this article. In case you want to read some reviews about these sites, you can check the following reviews:
CashCrates pretends to be one of the legitimate sites but it is recommended to stay away from it.
How Does the CashCrates Work?
We know that they want as much data as possible right?
Therefore it is very easy to join and it is absolutely Free.
In fact, you are told yo get a signup bonus.
All these incentives together with the empty promises about earnings $2 for every person who clicks on your link are just BS.
We will see in the next section where you can get a unique link that you should share all over the social media.
People you refer to join the CashCrates should earn money for you (just by joining this system).
You “Earnings” goes up.
Also by taking surveys and performing the task (as per the Dashboard below) this figure goes up.
It is said that there is no minimum threshold to cash out your earnings.
However, you must meet certain criteria to be able to get your money.
- 20 clicks
- 5 Referrals
- 6 Completed task walls tasks
- 10 posts and reviews
The truth is though that even if you meet those requirements you won’t get paid at all.
You will be told that your request is put on hold. After a few weeks, your request will be denied.
As a reason, you are told that you have used fake clicks and your referrals are not real people.
That is why you won’t get a dime and your account is closed.
So this is how the CashCrates works.
Let’s Have a Look Inside the Members Area
The CashCrates dashboard is pretty much the same as the dashboards of the other scams.
There is a main menu on the left-hand side, a few notifications saying that you should finish your payment methods, and also there is the unique link that you should share on social media and other platforms as well.
Here is the second screenshot of that dashboard with the list of tasks.
One of the tasks says, that you can earn $2 for every person who clicks on your unique link. Apparently, when they sign up you earn an additional $15.
These claims are ridiculous. No system can pay you for clicks and $15 for your referral, who signed up for Free.
It does not make any sense.
At the bottom of the dashboard you have other tasks and some fake claims about the earning potential:
- Refer a friend – Earn $15
- Get Clicks – Earn $2
- Download Apps – Earn points
- Complete Surveys – Earn $50
- Creat YouTube Videos – Earn $50
At the very bottom, you have options to share your link on social media.
I see people do that, quite a lot, especially on the Facebook groups.
They probably don’t realize that it is useless and even if they see their “earnings” on the CashCrates dashboard going up, it is just a fake figure.
No one is able to cash it out.
CashCrates does not allow you to withdraw the earnings.
There is not real earning at all.
The Claims vs Facts or List of Red Flags
There more red flags so I made a list of them. At least the major ones.
As you go through them I am sure you will find them helpful. The thing is that there are many similar scams like CashCrates so being aware of these red flags makes you more alert and you won’t fall for a scammy system that easily.
1) Age of the system
We have already check this.
As of this writing, the CashCrates is only a few months old. So the claim about how they have begun back in 2015 is false.
2) Fake Payment Proofs
CashCrates wants you to believe that they are legit. They post a lot of screenshots showing the people actually did get paid.
The problem with these screenshots is that they are not showing anything.
In the older systems (for example Tap2Earn, ShareCash, or Social Bounty) they have fake screenshots with dates before those systems were even registered.
CashCrates uses the following screenshots:
There is no date, it only says “Today”.
Waw – I mean pretty convincing, isn’t it?
The point is, there is no value whatsoever in these “payment proofs”.
Oh and here is the one with the fake data as well:
3) No One Gets Paid
We have explained how the CashCrates work, right?
First, you are told that you get $50 just for signing up, $10 for each referral – or is it $15?
It seems that even this information is not clear within the CashCrates site.
It just shows that this website (along with the other clones of this system) is created in a rush and there are obvious errors.
4) Contact information – Not working
There is no way of getting in contact with the CashCrates creators.
I did fill up the Contact form – it does not work.
They have 2 email addresses that don’t work either.
How about the Chat that is supposedly available in the Dashboard?
Doesn’t work either.
5) FAQ Does not work
Do you want to find out more about the CashCrates?
Check the Frequently Asked Questions at the bottom of the homepage.
Click on the question and you will get the top of the homepage, with no answer to pop down.
This is another error on their website.
6) Support – Forget About It
Within the Dashboard, you can go and check the Quick support.
IT says that you can DM the CashCrates on Twitter.
Unfortunately, their Twitter account is suspended.
7) Terms and Conditions – Error
I know that most don’t read the Term and Conditions, but since CashCrates belongs to the “big Scam family” I knew what to look for.
This is a very interesting paragraph, saying that you are not allowed to use the CashCrates if you re under the age of nighty nine.
Is this an error or is this on purpose?
Either way, it is just another proof that CashCrates is just a waste of time.
What I like
- Absolutely nothing
My Advice: Stay Away from CashForShare
What I don’t like
- Wrong information regarding the foundation (Instead of 2015, CashCrates is found in 04/2020)
- None of the email addresses work, including the Contact Form
- Payment proofs – fake screenshots
- Errors on the website
Where to Go From Here?
I am not sure how long have you been trying to find a system or a course that actually works.
I remember times when I was looking for training that would teach me what I have to do to make some money online. From 2015 I was doing research, I was checking digital products, following Gurus but none of that worked out for me.
But at least I have learned that all these “push-button-systems” or some “get-rich-quick” schemes are just scams, and don’t work.
It wasn’t until the end of 2017 when I did find a legit platform teaching about how to start an affiliate marketing business or website. To be honest, at that time I still was thinking that there must be some kind of shortcut or quick ways how to earn thousands per week.
I was wrong.
It requires your effort and time.
Of course, you can check the platform where I have learned (almost) everything about affiliate marketing – in fact, you can check it out for free.
Just click on this link and I will guide you through.
If you want to check the Survey sites, here are 3 of them that are legit (just as an example. There are more of them).
As I mentioned above, you can make some pocket money with these survey sites, but they don’t require any special knowledge.
CashCrates is a scam!
Don’t even sign up as it is just a waste of time.
If you looking for quick bucks, please do realize that you won’t earn a lot.
The survey sites that are legit, does not require a lot of special knowledge, so anyone can do that and that means that the learning potential is pretty low.

How to start generating revenue online?
In my opinion Affiliate Marketing is the easiest way. I don’t mean it is easy at all. But with proper education, you can see some results within 6 months. Please realize that building a successful online business requires time and effort.
Ther are many platforms and courses that teach affiliate marketing but only a few of them are for the right price and deliver the knowledge you need.

Thanks a lot for reading
