How are the opportunities for paid surveys in India?
Let me reveal right away that India is not the country with the most opportunities when it comes to online survey sites. But that does not mean that there are not good opportunities, because there definitely are some great and high paying survey sites to join in India.
There are A LOT of sites you can join, but that you can join a site, does not necessarily mean it has good options for India or good options in general.
Some sites might be great in one country, but do just not have many offers for other countries. That is just how it is, and no matter where in the world you live, you have to find the best sites specifically for your country.
When you find the legit and genuine sites that actually pay and have a good amount of opportunities, it can be a very nice way to make some extra cash.
Just be aware that no matter where in the world you live, paid surveys are not a way to become rich. If any survey site is promising you this, it is most likely a scam site you should stay away from.
So if you are looking for online survey jobs in India that can help you make a living and become rich, you will not find it.
But when joining the good sites, it can make you some really nice extra money, and it is something anybody can participate in – and the legit survey sites are always free to register for.
Later I will show you the best legit sites for India – and there luckily are quite a lot of genuine and good sites here.
What ways can you make money on survey sites?
Obviously, you can make money by taking online surveys and sharing your opinion on survey sites, but there are also often several other ways you can make money, which some people unfortunately sometimes overlook and potentially miss out on some great opportunities.
The sites that have other options as well are often called GPT (Get-Paid-To) sites, as you can get paid for a number of things.
This can, for example, be earning by playing games, clicking ads, watching videos, participating in free contests, solving captcha, downloading apps, and more.
For India, this is very interesting as there might be some sites that do not have a lot of surveys for you, but where the other options are good. So it is a good idea to not only go for the surveys but also some of the other options. It can, for example, be to watch videos, click ads, take online offers, download apps, play games, etc.
To increase your chances of earning, it is a good idea to join several sites. Around 5-7 sites is a good amount if you are not used to doing online paid surveys.
Once you get familiar with those platforms, you can join more, but if you join them all from the start, it can be overwhelming and difficult to give each platform the time it needs for you to take full advantage of them.

You can earn by taking surveys, doing Figure Eight tasks, participate in free contests, get free promo codes, and by taking online offers.
If you live in India, you should not expect to get a lot of surveys on PrizeRebel.

Univox Community does not only have a survey site you can join from India but also an app so you can take surveys on the go.
Overall, it is a great site. However, it does not always accept new members in India so you will not always be able to join. This depends on the number of available surveys they have. Because it does not always accept new members, it is not higher on the list.
