Frequently asked questions

Q: What do I have to do as a LoadTeam user?

A: As a LoadTeam user, all you have to do is to signup, download a free app and leave it running on your computer.
Once the app is installed, it will contact the server from time to time to check if there are any jobs to run.
If a job is found, the app will silently work on the job and send the results to the LoadTeam server.
Once the job is completed, your account gets credited and the application starts checking in with the server again every now and then for new jobs.
All of this happens automatically, so you don't have to do anything, apart from checking your balance and getting you money out whenever you want.

Q: LoadTeam is paying me for doing almost nothing. What is the "catch"?

A: LoadTeam is not giving money away: we are buying computer power from you.
In other words, LoadTeam "borrows" your computer power (processor, memory, internet and electricity) to execute jobs.
This video explains how LoadTeam works.

Q: Can I use my computer while LoadTeam is running?

A: Yes, the client app is very light weight and it runs quietly in the Windows system tray (next to the clock).
Even when the app is working on a job, you will barely notice it's there.

Q: Does the LoadTeam app spy on my computer?

A: No, the client app simply execues jobs and send the results to the LoadTeam server.
We take our user's privacy very seriously. Have a look at our privacy terms.

Q: How much will I make as a user?

A: LoadTeam is NOT a get rich fast scheme.
As a LoadTeam user, you will get paid whenever your computer completes a job.
You should NOT view LoadTeam as a main source of income, but a nice little topup to your existing income.

Q: How do payments work?

A: All LoadTeam payments are via PayPal, so you must have a PayPal account before you signup as a LoadTeam user.
LoadTeam uses PayPal's e-mail payment service, so the e-mail address on your LoadTeam account must be the same e-mail address on your PayPal account.
You can transfer money from LoadTeam to your PayPal account at any time, but the minimum transfer is 1 US dollar.
When you transfer money from LoadTeam to your PayPal account, you will receive an e-mail from PayPal informing you that you've received a payment from LoadTeam.
Once the money is in your PayPal account, you can spend it online at any site that accepts PayPal or you can withdraw the funds to your bank account or credit card.
LoadTeam will also provide you with PayPal's reference number for the transfer, but please notice that LoadTeam's responsibility ends at the time the money is transferred to your PayPal account. From that point on, it's between you and PayPal.

Q: I don't have a PayPal account. How do I open one?

A: Click here to open a PayPal account.
The e-mail address on your LoadTeam and PayPal account must be the same.

Q: What are the system requirements to install the LoadTeam app?

A: In order to install LoadTeam, you need a PC with:

  • Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 or later
  • 1GB RAM
  • 20MB free disk space

Q: Is there a version of LoadTeam client software for Mac/iPad/iPhone/Android, etc?

A: No, LoadTeam client is only available for Windows.

Q: How much data and power does the LoadTeam client software use?

A: It depends on how many jobs are executed and how much power is consumed by each job. Apart from the data consumed by jobs, LoadTeam also consumes data by periodically checking for new jobs. For this reason, LoadTeam is better suited for users with cheap internet and electricity.
