Complete Surveys and Get Paid
No longer restricted to U.S. residents;
now people worldwide can get paid for completing
surveys and other market research work. The
companies listed on this page are mainly looking for
residents from any country, but some are more
restrictive. Please note that being included on a panel does not
guarantee a company will have surveys to fit all demographics.
Before joining any of the programs, consider getting yourself a separate
e-mail address. Many companies offer free services, so you don't need to rely on
hotmail with their junk mail problems. My own personal recommendation is
GMX (Global Mail Exchange),
used by more than 11 million Internet users, which offers 5 GB e-mail storage and
attachments up to 50MB and mailboxes which are protected from spam with seven anti-spam
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.
GlobalTestMarket has a very active survey division and requires participants worldwide over the age of 14.
The views of those under 14 may be sought but the invitation will go to the parent for the
child to complete.
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 always earn 2 or 3
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 $0.05 and you need 1000 points to qualify
for payment by check.
They seem to be fairly active. I'm receiving at least 2 or 3 surveys every week
Currently actively recruiting in the following countries:
Whilst not actively recruiting elsewhere, it is still available worldwide so everyone
else should visit GlobalTestMarket International

Test and Vote|
Test&Vote (also known as Toluna in some countries)
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 Test&Vote 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.
Available in the following countries:
MyTNS.com offers you the chance
to participate in online research and
earn points exchangeable for vouchers or in the case of the UK, Nectar Points. I receive regular surveys to
complete and even when you don't qualify you still earn a
small number of points. They are one of the best sites when it comes to longer duration
surveys (eg a few minutes once a week for a month or every day for a week) which pay pretty well and for product trials.
Available to UK residents and
also residents of Switzerland, France,
although different rewards apply for each country.

qSample work directly with the market research companies. Their QuestionPro Survey
Software is used by over 2000 companies worldwide to conduct online surveys.
They believe that everyone spending their time should be compensated - not one lucky
winner. Hence they've structured this program such that the clients pay everyone who
take the surveys. That's how they guarantee that you'll get paid. When you receive
an invitation to take a survey, the compensation amount will be clearly noted on
the email invitation. Expect to get paid anywhere between $1 to $15 per survey,
through PayPal. Note that in some cases the clients insist that they use a prize or give-away. In such cases, there
will still be a per/completion payout, although it will be nominal -
between $.10 to $1, and you'll be entered in to the grand prize.
qSample is not a survey review site. They do not pass your data outside their
network. They do not share your information with others, not even with their clients.
You can refer friends to signup with qSample, and earn more cash. For every
survey that your friends complete, you get an additional 5% of their incentive.
Furthermore, if your friends refer other people, you get 1% of that too.

Contrary to appearances suggested by the name,
American Consumer Opinion
is made up of consumers
worldwide who have agreed to participate in surveys over the
Internet. Occasionally, these consumers are asked to
participate in mail surveys or telephone surveys, but
generally the surveys are all conducted over the Internet.
As a panel member, you will participate in several
surveys a year, typically. The average survey will take 10
minutes or so to complete, and the questions are usually
easy to answer.
Panel members can expect to receive a "screener" (a short
questionnaire) every six weeks or so.
All registered members participate in a monthly drawing
to win $250 in cash awards, just for being a member.
If you answer a screener (a short questionnaire), you
will be entered into a drawing for cash awards and when you
participate in a survey (a longer questionnaire), you will
always receive some type of incentive in the form of a free
product to test, cash, a check, or a gift.
Incentives typically range in value from $4 to $25, per
survey, depending upon the length of the questionnaire and
the time it takes to complete it. If a survey is extra long,
then the award could be $25 or more. Participants in online
focus groups generally receive more than $25.
I've received many payments from this company

Incentives for online surveys are usually in the form of
cash, product samples and/or gift certificates. The type and
amount of incentive are based on the type and size of survey
and the respondent profile required by the contract and can
vary from $2-$10 or more. Sometimes, surveys offer no
incentive at all and sometimes you are entered into major
drawings. In the case of review surveys, you may be allowed
to keep product samples. Payment is based on the submission
of a completely answered, requested survey form You are
never obligated to participate.
Incentives for focus groups tend to be much higher than
for surveys, but do not occur as frequently. Focus groups
require you to have access to the Internet for 1 - 1½
hours of your time and a Java-capable web browser. All you have to do is go to a website that they will provide
you with at the time of the focus group and participate in
