best paid surveys for nigeria header

If you are looking for a way to earn some extra money online in Nigeria, then online surveys and online micro-tasks can be a good option.

There are many sites that offer this, BUT most of them are a waste of time. To get anything out of it, you need to make sure you join the sites that are actually worth it.

In this article, I will, therefore, show you 13 awesome paid surveys in Nigeria.

All of these sites are legit and pay you without problems, and they are, of course, free to join.

If you do not live in Nigeria and have ended up on this page, you can instead check out the lists of best sites in other countries.

How are the opportunities for taking online surveys in Nigeria?

There are hundreds of online survey sites, but the amount of opportunities depends a lot on the country you live in.

So how are the opportunities then in Nigeria?

Let me be honest with you and say that it is not the country with the most opportunities compared to some of the big English-speaking countries.

In fact, it can be challenging finding good survey sites in Nigeria – this does, however, not mean that there are no good options.

There are many sites you can join but that just does not give you many surveys (if any). But there are also some great survey sites with decent opportunities if you live in NG.

Below I have put together a list of the best of these sites so you do not have to waste your time testing hundreds of sites.

But before getting to the list, let’s first go over how you can use survey sites to earn the most.

How to earn the most?

There are a few things you need to know to get the most out of paid surveys in Nigeria.

One of the things is that you will not qualify for every survey that is available. That is just how survey sites work.

So when you join the sites below and might disqualify for some surveys, do not give up right away. This will happen and on some of the sites, it sometimes takes a bit of patience to find the ones you qualify for.

But after a while, you will be able to figure out what types of surveys you have the best chance qualifying for and then you can just focus on these.

A very important tip to earn the most is to be aware that some of the sites offer other earning methods than only paid surveys.

It can, for example, be to watch videos, take micro-tasks, take offers, play games, and more. The sites that have these other options as well are called GPT sites (get-paid-to).

By using some of these other earning methods, you can really boost your earnings.

Finally, all the sites have different opportunities and offers. Therefore, to get the most chances of earning, you should join several sites.

I recommend joining 5-7 sites at first to get a good amount of options but still have the time to get to know each site.

Then you have good chances of making some extra cash on the side. Just be aware that taking paid surveys is NOT a way to become rich in Nigeria or something you can do as a full-time job.

It can make you some extra cash on the side, but if you expect to become rich or find a full-time survey job, you will be disappointed.

Below you can see a list of the best online survey options in Nigeria.

Triaba is a simple survey site with few available surveys. But it has its own survey site for Nigeria, so as an extra site, it can definitely be worth joining.

Once you are a member, you do not really have to log in to the site very often. Only when you want a payout. The surveys will come to you via email invitations.

You can get your earnings out through PayPal or gift cards when you have earned around $7. Because of the limited options on Triaba, this can, however, take a little time.

Join Triaba

Honeygain can be a way to earn a bit of extra cash online completely passively from Nigeria. However, it is not a site for everyone.

Short summary:
Swagbucks is one of the biggest and most popular GPT sites and I am often asked if it is available in Nigeria. And it recently opened up so it is.

However, the reason it is not higher on this list is because it does not yet offer a lot of opportunities in Nigeria. So it will take some patience to earn here.

But as an extra site, it can be worth checking out and it definitely is a legit site.

Join Swagbucks

#10 - WowApp

WowApp is an interesting option as it has many ways to earn and offers some ways no other sites on the list have.

In Nigeria, it can take a bit of patience to find the best ways to earn on WowApp and get to know how to use it – but it can be worth the patience with its many options.

Join WowApp

#11 - Cointiply

Short summary:
Cointiply is only relevant if you are interested in earning Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. If you are, then this site can be a great way to earn this in Nigeria.

It has many methods to earn. Some of them take a bit of patience, but you can always find ways to earn there. You can take surveys, use a Bitcoin faucet, there is a miner, a multiplier game, you can click ads, and more.

Once you have earned $3.50 you can get a payout. But if you keep your earnings in your account longer, you will earn interests.

Join Rewards1

That was a list of the best paid online survey sites and GPT sites for Nigeria.

You will see many sites with longer lists but often they have just listed all the sites you can join but not the ones that actually give opportunities in Nigeria.

This list instead is a bit shorter but I have put a lot of effort into trying to create a list that can help you find real options.

So I hope this list helps you find some good survey and GPT sites to earn some extra cash.


If you have any comments, questions, or know of any great paid surveys in Nigeria that are not on the list, then I would love to hear from you in a comment below.

  1. Nice but only problem am having with Hiving is how can i accept their term and policy because it say, you agree by signing up but it keep telling me to accept term and condition.Please enlight me here or give the solution.Thanks

  2. Thanks mikael for the value able information currently am on some of them ..
    But am also interested in affiliate programs .. do u offer affiliate programs or any Link to a given site

    • You are welcome.

      I am not quite sure I understand what you mean about if I offer affiliate programs? What would you like to know about affiliate programs?

    • No, you should NOT use VPN. Using VPN on survey and Get-Paid-To sites is fraud and you hurt a lot of people and businesses by doing this. Also, most sites have strict security so they will find out when you use VPN and they will block you and you will lose your earnings.

  3. Good day Mr. Mikael, thanks for the well done precious enlightenment so far. Please may we as Nigerians have any legit online typing jobs.

  4. I keep getting invitations to desktop surveys from survey time on my email but when I click the link it will redirect me to their sites and says I do not qualify.Is the problem due to the fact that I use a smart phone?

    • If the email says it is a desktop survey, you can only complete it on desktop. So yes, you will then not qualify if you use a phone.

  5. Please sir I’ve joined the first three and I’ve not gotten any survey. While survey time is telling me that my interest has not been found. Others don’t even have any survey to offer. I’m interested in all surveys I don’t know what to do I’m about giving up

  6. Sir, please I haven’t gotten a survey since I registered for survey time, tgm panel,mobrog, survey time tells me no available survey after sending me email and just don’t have surveys that I’m interested in. I’m interested in all surveys

    • There will not always be surveys available. Sometimes it will take some patience before they are some. So make sure to use some of the other earning methods many of the sites offer also while waiting for surveys you qualify for.

  7. Hi,I have 53swagbucks,but the problem now is that I can’t even see any withdrawal icon on the site .that’s Is why I left it…is there any withdrawal icon on the site?

  8. Another question – Please I joined surveytime and I’ve gotten quite a number of survey invitations within a very short period of time. The problem is whenever I click to take the survey it redirects me to a page where I’ve to input my contact number for a verification code to be sent via, I don’t have a problem with that, but after doing so I eventually don’t get the code after waiting for minutes initially. I’m from Nigeria.

    PS – I noticed that in all, the country whose code is there, is the US though there are others in the drop down options.

          • Ive seen heard of 3 people has been paid by gramfree ,am not talking of their online testimonies. So what do you mean by red flag

          • I am basing this on my experience with hundreds of sites I have tested. Seeing someone getting paid (or saying they got paid) does not always mean it is a good option in the long run.

            It is not possible for me to list all the red flags it has here. But to mention a few then that there, for example, is no info at all about who is behind the company. That is always suspicious, in my opinion. Also, according to their terms, they do not guarantee their service will continue. This means they can close at any time and there is nothing you can do about it. And you have to sign-up with your Facebook or Google account which means you give them access to a lot of your private info BUT they do not have a privacy policy on the website that tells you what they will do with that info.

            These are just a couple of small examples but, in my opinion, these examples alone are enough for me to advise people to be VERY careful about it.

    • Paidviewpoint is definitely legit BUT it does not offer any surveys in Nigeria and it would potentially take you years to reach the threshold and you might never be able to get there. So that is why it is not on this list. But it is on the list of my recommended options in other countries where it has opportunities.

  9. sir, i have joined over 10 survey sites but i havent gotten any surveys. Apart from the micro task and video watch
    i need to talk to u to know how and where i can get more chances to get paid survey
    please message me at xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx as soon as you see this
    thanks for your time

    • there is not much you can do. There are just not that many available surveys in Nigeria. And your profile might just not fit the ones that are there. That is why I mention it is good to make sure to use some of the other tasks as well.

    • Many of the sites also offer other payout methods. So if you cannot use PayPal, then use some of the many other options.

  10. How do I receive payment from other countries through PayPal I want to start free lance writing and app testing

  11. Can any of these survey site pay money directly to my Bank Account without PayPal, I still want to know if any of the survey site pay their customers on daily basis, please give me the names of those survey site.

    • You can see on the list above which payout methods the different sites offer. But Timebucks offers payout into your bank account via Transferwise and WowApp also offers bank payout.

      Hope this helps.

    • how often you will receive surveys will vary from site to site and from time to time. Also, it will depend on your demographic profile. So there is no exact answer for this.

      The best sites for Nigerians are the ones at the top of the list above.

  12. Hi Mikael, HSD!
    I tried registering for the Time bucks survey platform but it constantly tell me that I’m not allowed to sign in using vpn/proxy. Is it because I’m using free Operamini data (50 mb daily)
    Please help!


  13. Please I don’t know what is a post code and i don’t have one. And most of this site listed ask for it.what do I do about it

  14. Hello. I have done about 3 surveys now on survey time but my account has not been credited. Do you know what the problem could be? Thank you.

    • It is really difficult to say anything precise about. It depends how many sites you join, how many surveys/tasks you qualify for, how much time you invest, and more.

      But you just need to be aware that it is not a way to make a living or anything near a full-time income. But it is a free method and can give some extra cash on the side.

  15. Hello Mike, I really would like to know how to you fill out the short profile survey especially during or immediately after completing sign-up. If you can still possibly email me on the reply, I will also really appreciate. Thanks.

    • You just need to answer them honestly – if you then do not qualify that is just how it is. That happens for all of us often when we try to take surveys. So just be honest and join several sites – then you have the best chances of getting the most surveys.

        • If you are using Swagbucks in Nigeria you are using a VPN or something else to hide which country you are in. This is fraud and goes against their terms and when they will detect it they will ban your account and you will lose your earnings.

          I have checked with Swagbucks many times which countries it is available in and it is NOT available in Nigeria.

          • Lol. That’s not true. Swagbucks really is available in Nigeria. I’ve earned like 35 SB already. You can confirm it yourself bro

          • I apologize – I just checked and it seems that they just recently opened for most countries but until recently it was only open in 8 countries and was not aware of the change. But it is still only in the 8 countries it was also available in before that it has good opportunities and in most other countries it has very limited options. But you are right that you can now join from NG and thanks for making me aware of this change.

    • If you have problems with PayPal or want to know more details about how to get it to work in Nigeria, you need to contact PayPal’s support.

          • I am experiencing same. After completing a survey, I received a mail saying I have been paid only to tell me to claim my payment by April 16. I really do not understand. I think it is a scam.

          • Are you referring to Surveytime? Because I have been paid by it many times myself and never had any problems. If you have problems with it, you need to contact their support.

  16. Hi Mikael, thanks for the info.

    I don’t have problems signing up on PayPal but I think the downside is that it doesn’t allow the option to receive.

    And again, outside survey what other activities can one get paid from, because from the look of things surveys don’t come up frequently and please specify on the platforms that pay for other activities outside survey.

    Thank you again.

    • Many of the sites offer different ways of earning as doing tasks, social media tasks, watching videos, downloading apps, etc. You can read the full reviews of the different sites through the links above. All of the different earning methods are described in detail in the reviews.

      Hope this helps.

  17. Please I’m having trouble updating my account for payment option on Timebucks, because I’m choosing the bank transfer option, I’m having trouble adding my local bank account number on transferwise

    • If you check out the comments below here, you can see several people saying it is possible to receive through PayPal in NG as well now and how to do it.

    • Thanks for the info. I shall try some of them to see if they will accept Nigerians. I have joined several of them but most times surveys will not be available.

      • Remember that many of the sites also offer other options than just paid surveys. So if you have a hard time qualifying for the surveys make sure to also use some of the other earning methods.

    • Are you from Nigeria and tried to sign up for all the sites on the list? What error did you get since you could not sign up? All of them are available there so if you give me a bit more information I might be able to help you.

    • Not sure which specific site you are referring to. But I have personally registered for all the sites on the list above and have also been paid by them.

        • I have not registered from Nigeria if that is what you mean. But I have had a lot of feedback from people, talked to some of the companies behind some of the sites about how much they offer in Nigeria, and more to be able to put together a list like this. I have put a lot of effort and research into being able to put together a list of sites that actually have opportunities in Nigeria as it is not that easy to find.

          Hope that answers your question.

    • s far as I know you go to PayPal’s website where you can create an account. If that does not work, I would suggest you to contact PayPal and get a specific answer from them. And feel free to keep me updated about how it goes.


        • On Triaba’s website, it shows Nigeria is available. If you have problems with registering, I would suggest you to then contact their support. Feel free to keep me updated about how it goes.


  18. Please how can I get a paypal account that can pay me in Nigeria.? I am in globalalat.com and PaidNews.ng.com. But yet to cash out.
