>> We all know pros and cons about surveys: for example you can do them from the comfort of your home and with a certain payout, commensurate with the time and effort you dedicate. Often,  surveys rewards are paid via PayPal, which is usually a preferred payment method , because users can spend the money in the way they want (while vouchers are limited to specific retail brands or e-commerce such as Amazon).

 So in this article we turn on a light on the best and most reliable survey websites that allow payment via PayPal! 

But first, some things to be remembered…

The perfect profile to earn money with surveys

Online questionnaires are based on the socio-demographic characteristics of the user (age, household, type of job, salary, area of origin, personal interests, tastes, character traits etc.).

Obviously, not all users will have the same appeal for survey platforms: as is natural, users belonging to a rarer profile are more sought-after and paid more.

For example, while platforms abound in female users, mostly middle-aged housewives, there is a shortage of male users, such as established professionals with high incomes and more than one child.

The latter will obviously be more sought-after, and will therefore have a better chance of earning money from web surveys. But ultimately, anyone can participate in paid online questionnaires: as long as you know your way around the jungle of digital platforms.

Why online surveys exist

The sites that offer surveys are called “panels“. These sites act as intermediaries between companies and end users.

But why should a company create an online questionnaire?

 It usually happens before a new product is launched on the market. 

Asking users’ opinions helps the company to understand if the product will be liked and therefore successful. And asking your opinion through a web survey is the easiest and most profitable way to do it.

Asking questions on the street, for example, is very difficult: people don’t like stopping, while phone surveys are replied to in a hurry, as people are worried it may be a scam or are bothered be being contacted on their number without an appointment.

The same problems don’t exist with online paid surveys, because users are in a no-stress condition, having the time to answer by home whenever they want. Besides companies that need for this market researches can pay for users’ time spent on answering. It’s a win-win situation for everybody.

How to spot the most reliable survey platforms

But how can I choose the best platform? How to be sure you’ve found a safe and reliable survey site?

If you are venturing into the chaotic world of panels, remember two features you should always find in the sites you pick:

  • NO FEES TO JOIN: professional panels are 100% free.They do not ask for money to complete questionnaires. At most, they require an email address to register.
  • PAYMENTS: payments vary greatly depending on the length of the questionnaire and user profile. A completed survey is usually not paid more than 5 dollars. Payments consist of a cash deposit directly to your PayPal account (or bank account). In some cases, as an alternative, the earning is converted into vouchers, which you can usually spend online on popular platforms such as iTunes, Amazon, Target, etc.

How to register on survey sites

Once you have chosen the panel that suits you (our advice is always that you try them all!), you just have to register, leaving data such as name, surname, date of birth, residence, email address, etc.

You’ll get a confirmation email to complete your subscription and you will be addressed immediately to some more specific questions about you and your preferences. Those questions – such as about your family or your job – are very important:  they will help the survey sites to better understand your characteristics and to share with you the survey panels best fitting to you. 

Some final tips

Since everyone’s goal is to receive as many online surveys as possible, when registering, it’s useful that you state that you are the person in the household who’s in charge of shopping. So the panel will be more interested in you and your opinion.

Also, remember that if you mention many interests  it will be more likely that the survey site offers you more surveys: the more interests you have, the more topics that will be associated with you.

The same applies to what you own: the more things you claim you own have, the greater the chance of answering surveys on various topics and products.
