Why are GPT Sites Slow Earners?

Low Pay in General
GPT sites are low earners because they offer low pay in general. The different task do not pay a lot. With that being said, you should not expect to earn a lot of money from these type of sites.

Many gpt sites pay members in points that can be converted to cash payments and prizes. Most sites have a low conversion rate.

It Has to be That Way
This is so, because these sites have several thousand members. If these sites were to pay a large amount money per task, they would not be in business long.
In closing, gpt or get paid to sites are good paying hobbies. Check them out for yourself.
