.

Epinions is an online service dedicated to inform consumers about a variety of items that are good or bad to purchase. The catch is that these reviews are written buy consumers themselves. Why would people dedicate so much time to inform others?

The original incentive was a payout for these reviews. A member of Epinions would give his/her opinion on a given product and describe his/her expereince with it whether it be good or bad. Nowadays the payout isn't as big as it used to be years ago but something different has occurred... a sense of community has formed.

Based in Brisbane, CA, Epinions does still pay its members for writing reviews through a system called "Income Share". Each month, members receive a small amount of the income that comes into the site into their own account. The minimum payout in the US is $10.00 while international users have to wait till their account reaches $100.00.

As this company has grown over the years, so has the community as they have started to get involved with its members by rewarding them as they throw "Meet & Greet" gatherings throughout the United States.

The staff has been very dilligent and helpful throughout the years making Epinions a more viable place for consumer information.

PROS: Sense of community, great reviews
CONS: Payout is hard to reach unless you are in an elite status
