Get Paid to Complete Surveys Online in Australia and New Zealand

No longer restricted to U.S. residents; now you can get paid to complete surveys online in Australia and also undertake other market research work. The survey companies listed on this page are mainly looking for people from Australia (and occasionally New Zealand) only so don't forget to also check the international page for more sites to visit. Free paid survey companies only - no fees will ever be required.

Before joining any of the programs, consider getting yourself a separate e-mail address. Many companies offer free services. My own personal recommendation is gmail but there are loads to choose from.

I'd also recommend you download a copy of Roboform. This free software can be used for auto-filling registration forms greatly simplifying the application process for the survey companies you'll be joining. In addition it can also remember all the passwords for each of the sites you join. Find out more from Roboform.

If you want to be informed whenever anything is added to this page, just add your e-mail address in the box. Your address will not be used for any other purposes.

  Toluna Australia

Toluna (formerly Test & Vote) is slightly different from other survey sites I've come across in that you don't have to rely on getting invitations for completing surveys, but have several other ways of earning points or getting free items.

  • Registration earns you 1,500 points
  • Quick votes, each time you take part earns you 15 points (there are always loads of these on the site so visit regularly. They take a matter of seconds to complete.)
  • Product testing, registering for each trial earns you 75 points even if you're not selected to take part
  • Surveys earn you between 3,000 and 30,000 points
  • Referring a friend, for each person who joins Toluna because of you, you will earn 500 points
  • Subject panels - complete these to get 500 points per subject.

You can either exchange your points for a range of vouchers or use them to buy tickets in the monthly lottery where you could win cash prizes.

See our international paid survey pages for Toluna panels from outside Australia

  Global Test Market

GlobalTestMarket has a very active survey division and whilst it requires participants worldwide over the age of 14, they are currently actively looking for new Australian panel members. If you've got children under 14, you may receive requests for their opinion but the invitation will go to the parent for the child to complete, rather than to the child direct.

You earn "marketpoints" each time you respond to a survey request - the closer you fit the demographics for the survey, the higher the points earned but you'll often earn 2 or 3 or at least a sweepstake entry even if you don't qualify at all. A typical survey of 30 questions that takes approximately 12 minutes to complete will earn 60 to 80 MarketPoints. You can also earn extra points when you refer others. Each point is worth US$0.05 and you need 1000 points to qualify for payment by cheque, which will be converted and paid out in AUS$.

They seem to be fairly active. I'm receiving 2 or 3 survey invitations nearly every day at present and have received several payouts. For full details and registration form, visit GlobalTestMarket

Also recruiting in New Zealand.
