ECBarre, SmartBarre, Eurobarre

The majority of surf bars are French. The surfbars that I work with are no exceptions. This online translator might be useful to you. I'll provide a little guide here on how to use them. The surf bar itself is a a very simple thing. It couldn't be any simpler. Just run it, place it where it doesn't bother you and forget it. Every now and then a presence code is needed to be entered and that's all. I picked these three bars because in my opinion they are the best, they are reliable, and free to join.

If you are not familiar with the surfbars, and want to know what they are and how do they work - click here.

The SmartBarre has been present among the surf bars since May 2007, and it is not surprising that it's French, too. This bar is the smallest and the most flexible of the three bars presented here. As long as it runs it collects points for you that are converted to Euros at the end of each month. Cash out can be requested when there are at least 15 Euros in your account. Its referral earning system is not outstanding but it's not bad at all. It looks like this:

1st level: 25%;
2nd level: 10%;
3rd level: 10%.

With the aid of some active referrals our earnings will grow considerably. You get a 300 point bonus for registration.

On the opening page fill in the registration form. After you pressed the Inscription button on the bottom of the page, you'll receive an e-mail that contains an account activation link. By clicking on it, you'll get to the SmartBarre homepage where you can login.
On the left side of the page under the Navigation title click on the Connexion link. enter your e-mail address and your password then press the Connexion button. Now you have to download the surf bar. Click the Barre link then click the Télécharger link There you'll find the file you need, namely the 'Barrefinal (executable)". You'll get an .exe file, ready to run. No set up is needed at this point, the downloaded file is the surf bar itself, just click on it and your surf bar is ready to accumulate points for you.

EuroBarre registration

EuroBarre was the most popular surf bar. In its five years of existence it proved to us that it is a trust worthy company. But in 2008. June a decision was made that only the French users will be paid, so there's no use to sign up here unless you live in French.
Eurobarre has more than 1.200.000 members.
All you have to do is to let the bar running in the upper middle part of the screen. This bar cannot be moved. It's size is about 20 x 2 cm. Accepting that EuroBarre has its own fixed position, you may place your other surf bars on/under this bar for space saving. The bar accumulates points for you depending on how much time it runs.
Its referral system is rather unique among surf bars. The down line is only 1 level deep, but the referrer gains 100% for his/her referrals. With a few referrals, the 15 Euro paying threshold can be made in a matter of days. The collected points are converted to Euros at the end of each month. They deliver the money via PayPal.
You can earn bonus points:
  • Loyality bonus: you'll get 5.000 points on your 15th, 45th and 75th day of being a EuroBarre user.
  • E-mail bonus: if you subscribe, you'll receive e-mails from EuroBarre containing a link, which will give you 50 or 100 points.
  • Surveying bonus: if you survey certain websites you will be rewarded with 1.000 - 2.500 points. You'll have to answer a few questions correctly, so knowing the French language is an advantage. They are simple questions though, you shouldn't have any trouble with them.
On the opening page click on the Installer link.

On the next page click on the "Cliquez ici pour lancer votre Eurobarre" link.
If you encounter any problem with that link go to the bottom of the page and click the "Télécharger cette version complète si vous avez des problèmes d'installation !".
Actually I advise you to start with the second link. Now run the installer you've just downloaded. It may stop the installation process complaining on a file (vb6fr.dll) missing. If that occurs go here and download the missing file. Then copy the unzipped vb6fr.dll file into your Windows\System\ folder and into Windows\System32\ folder as well. Now start the EuroBarre installer again. This time it should set up properly and another window opens.

Here you have to submit some data.
1) The first string of numbers is generated automatically by the EuroBarre, you have to choose a four-digit number for yourself. The whole string will be sent to your e-mail address. You'll need it later on, so keep it.
2) Select your country.
3)Enter your e-mail address.
4) Click the ACTIVATE MY ACCOUNT button.

Now you are ready to make use of your surf bar and start accumulating points.

This surf bar has its own manager panel, you don't need to go to any website. On the right side of the surf bar a few buttons are placed. By the meanings of them you can access all the options you need.

After a period of time you might need to reinstall the EuroBarre, and obviously you want to continue with your existing account. Download the bar installer software and set it up just like you did when you've registered. On the opening window go to the bottom of the page this time. There is a Former Member area. Submit your account number that was given to you when you registered, and enter your secret code as well. Then click the Reactivate Account button, and you get your account
back. Should you lose your account number or secret code, press the Lost button for further instructions.
