TrekPay (and its sister site Trek Advertising) are the brainchild of Brian Lindback and are based out of Sunnyvale, California. TrekPay is still considered to be in pre-launch (though they have over 145.000 members), but they are paying out every week.
TrekPay is a site built to target ads which are place on members websites. Members go through Trek Advertising and pay for their sites to be seen and their sponsor ads to be clicked.
TrekPay members can choose which type of ads they would like to see (through the search function), or they can click all available ads. Each ad will credit the members account with either 3 credits or 1 credit. 3 credit ads require you to also click on the sponsor ad located on the page. 1 credit ads are strictly for you to view their site. There is no set monetary value on the clicks, TrekPay is a revenue share program so revenue generated is shared among the credits. The more credits a member has, the more money they will make. Members can also get credits by referring other members to TrekPay or Trek Advertising. There is a ranking system in the back office (in 'my account'). The more credits you get from clicking on sites (and clicking sponsored ads), and the more referrals you get for both TrekPay and Trek Advertising the higher your ranking. Members with the highest ranking will get the largest amount of the revenue, and members can earn up to $50 per week through TrekPay. Payments are done weekly (between Tuesday and Thursday) and once $5.50 has been accumulated, the member can request a payout via Paypal.
When a Trekpay member refers a member to TrekAdvertising, and they purchase advertising hits, the referring member will receive 12.5% commission instantly. This amount is not considered in the $50 per week you are allowed to receive. So, your generated income can be unlimited.
