legit survey panels that pay through paypalWhen taking paid surveys online, you can usually get paid in one of three ways – in cash, products or gift cards.

Many people (including myself) prefer getting paid in cash when taking surveys. One of the easiest ways to get your cash paid out from survey sites is through PayPal.

However, not all survey sites offer cash payment and not all sites offer it through PayPal. So in this article, I will give you a list of the best survey panels that pay through PayPal, so you can easily focus on these, if you prefer this reward.

Why use PayPal to get paid for surveys?

Before getting to the list of the best sites, let’s first go a little deeper into what PayPal is, and why so many people prefer getting paid for taking surveys this way.

First of all, PayPal is a very reliable platform, and is very secure and available in most countries. For that reason, it is also the payment method used by most survey panels that offer cash rewards. PayPal is in general also pretty strict when it comes to the companies they work with, so it is in many cases also a sign that a survey site is legit, if it offers payouts through PayPal (you can check out my article about avoiding survey scams, if you want to know more about how to spot the sites that are not legit).

Another advantage of using PayPal is that it is very easy to use, you can have an account for free (visit PayPal’s website to get a free account), and because of its popularity, you can use it as a payment method at a lot of different places. So whether you want to spend your reward on buying products online, pay for different subscriptions, buy flights or have the money transferred to your local bank account, it is super easy and fast.

These are some of the reasons PayPal is a very popular reward option on survey sites, and also the reason it is my personal favprite way to get paid for taking surveys.

How does payment through PayPal for surveys work?

If a survey panel offers PayPal surveys, you can just select this as a payment method in the payout or reclaim reward section. Then when you reclaim your reward, you will get paid that way.

PayPal uses your email address to identify you, and when a survey site ask for your PayPal details to know where to transfer the money, it is just the email you have used to register at PayPal you have to give. So it is super easy.

Be aware that some survey sites automatically think the email address you registered at their site with is also the email you have for PayPal. So if you have several email addresses, be sure to coordinate this, so you will get paid to the right account.

At some survey sites, you even have to have an PayPal account to sign up, as this is the only form of payment they offer.

How long does it take to get paid through PayPal?

How long it takes from you have requested a payout from a survey panel until the money is in your PayPal account really depends on the survey panel. In most cases, it takes a couple of days. But there are also cases where it can take weeks, and other surveys that pay instantly via PayPal, which means you will get the money into your account more or less right away. So it depends on the specific sites you are are a member of.

The payout threshold is different on each survey site. On some sites you have to earn $30 or more to get paid through PayPal, and on others you can get paid already when you have earned $1.

On the list below, you can see what the payout threshold is on the different sites, so you will know how soon you can get paid. You can also read how long the processing time approximately is on some of the sites, so you know approximately what to expect.

Is PayPal the only way to get paid in cash for surveys?

Before getting to the list of panels that offers this payment method, I just want to mention that there are other ways to get money for doing surveys than just PayPal.

PayPal is by far the most popular and the method offered by most survey panels, but there are also panels that do not offer this or offer additional methods as well.

Some panels offer payment in cash through check, and others offer through other online payment platforms like Payoneer, Skrill, Tango and Paytoo. On the list below, you will be able to see which survey panels offer other payment methods as well.

25 best survey sites that pay through PayPal

Below you can see a list of the best survey sites that pay out through PayPal. They are all legit and good sites, but which ones are the best for you can vary depending on the country you live in and your preferences. So read the overview below, to see which ones seem most appealing to you, and you can then read my full review of each of them, if you want further information before signing up.

To increase you chances of earning, it is a good idea to sign up for several sites. If you have not done paid surveys before, I recommend signing up for 4-6 sites so you get a good amount of opportunities, but it will still not be too overwhelming. Then you have time to get to know the platforms you join, and then you can join more later.

So make sure to bookmark this page, so you can come back and find the legit sites, if you want to join more later. The list is also regularly updated with new opportunities, so make sure to come back and check it once in a while.

Short summary:
PrizeRebel has many daily opportunities for doing paid surveys, and also has quite a few other ways to make money. You can do small online paid tasks, take a number of different offers like for example signing up for websites, playing online games, downloading apps etc. that can give pretty good rewards. It also often offers promo codes that can give you free points, and a number of different free contests.

In general PrizeRebel is a great platform for earning some extra money and one of the top sites for this. You can sign up from most parts of the world, but the number of possibilities vary depending on where you live. There are by far the most opportunities available in the US, the UK, Canada and Australia.

Short summary:
Swagbucks is one of the biggest players on the market when it comes to paid surveys and reward sites. It has more than 20 million users, and offers many daily opportunities to make some extra cash. Not only through surveys, but it also has some really good cash back offers, if you like doing shopping online, watching videos, contests, games, and several other methods to earn.

Unfortunately, it is not available worldwide, so you can only join, if you live in one of the above mentioned countries. But if you live in one of these countries, it is a great site to join. And it has a big joining bonus of $5, if you join through the invitation link below, so it will give you a great start and take you closer to the payout threshold, which will not be difficult to reach with all the opportunities Swagbucks offers. That is a great joining bonus for a survey site, and most sites offer one that is a lot lower, if they offer one.

In addition to offering payout through PayPal, Swagbucks is also offering a large number of different gift cards as a reward option.

#3 – YouGov

yougov logoAvailable in: More or less worldwide
PayPal payout threshold: Depends on country
Other payment methods: Gift cards, cash, products
More info: Read full YouGov review

Short summary:
YouGov has survey panels in many different countries and in the local language. The surveys are mostly about current and important topics in your specific countries, so they are interesting to participate in. A great thing about YouGov is that they regularly post the results of the surveys and research the conduct on the website, so you can see the overall results, and also see how this has been used by the media.

It pays pretty well in relation to the time spent for each survey. As the only way to earn is surveys, it does not have has many daily opportunities as the sites that offer other ways to earn as well, but for a pure survey site, it has a really good amount.

Beware that it is not in all countries YouGov pays through PayPal. You have to check for your specific country, as each country has different payout methods and payout thresholds, but the ones that do not offer PayPal have other great rewards.

Once you have signed up, you have to fill out your profile, and then you will start receiving invitations for surveys. You will receive an email every time there is a new survey you can participate in. Usually this will be between 4-10 times per month depending on where you live. Not as many as other survey sites offer, but still an ok amount for making a bit extra.

The easiness and reliability of GlobalTestMarket makes it a site worth joining. It also has an app that makes it very easy to take surveys on the go. In addition to PayPal payment, GlobalTestMarket also offers some gift cards, and it has its own lottery where you earn entries into by taking surveys in addition to the cash you make.

#7 – PineCone Research

pinecone research logoAvailable in: Select countries
PayPal payout threshold: $3
Other payment methods: Check
More info: Read full PineCone Research review

Short summary:
PineCone is one of the highest paying survey sites, as you get a minimum of $3 per survey. However, contrary to other survey sites, you cannot join by just going to the website. You can only join through invitation, which makes it difficult to join, and it is only available to few countries. Here at PaidFromSurveys.com we have been lucky to be allowed to invite people to join. So you can join through the invitation link below, but only if you live in the US, UK, Canada, France, or Germany.

PineCone offers regular surveys, but you should also join other sites to get enough opportunities. The surveys you get will however pay well, so definitely worth joining, if you live in a country where it is available. On PineCone Research you can get paid through PayPal or check. Be aware that your first payment has to be through check, but later you can change it to PayPal, and you can get paid already when you have earned $3. Usually the processing time for payment through PayPal is around 3-5 days.

#8 – PaidViewpoint

PaidViewpoint logoAvailable in: Mostly US, UK, Canada and to some extent Australia.
PayPal payout threshold: $15
Other payment methods: N/A
More info: Read full PaidViewpoint review

Short summary:
PaidViewpoint is a very easy to use survey panel. The only thing you can do on the site is surveys, and compared to other survey panels, PaidViewpoint is a bit different in the way that all surveys are very short and with easy to answer multiple choice questions. The only payment method offered is PayPal, and once you have requested a payout, the processing time is around 3 days.

PaidViewpoint is the only survey panel that I am aware of that guarantees that if you are offered a survey, you will always be able to finish it and get paid. So it is not like some other panels where you often have to answer a few questions, before you find out if you actually qualify.

Even though PaidViewpoint is available worldwide, there are very limited surveys in some countries. Everyone are able to take a short profile survey every day that also pays a little, but real surveys that pay better are not available in all countries. Most surveys are for English speaking countries and especially the US. So if you live in a non-speaking English-country, it is not a site worth joining.

#9 – Superpay.me

superpayme logoAvailable in: Worldwide
PayPal payout threshold: Yes – processing time is usually less than 24 hours
Other payment methods: Payza, Skrill, Bitcoin & Amazon gift cards
More info: Read full Superpay.me review

Short summary:
Superpay.me offers many daily opportunities. Exactly how many depends on your location. It can take a bit of time to test the different opportunities and find out which surveys and other offers you can take, so be a bit patient in the beginning when testing it out.

Superpay.me has one of the lowest payment thresholds, and you can request a payout through PayPal as soon as you have made $1, and you will have the money in your account within 24 hours. Once you are a verified member, you can also request to be paid through instant PayPal, which means you will get the money you earn instantly.

Because it is a bit confusing to use, it is not higher on the list, but it is still on the list, because it has some great potential and a very low payout threshold, which is great.

#10 – MySurvey

mysurvey logoAvailable in: US, UK, Canada, Australia, Ireland, Spain, France, and Germany
PayPal payout threshold: $10
Other payment methods: Amazon e-certificates, gift cards, products

It has an app that makes it easy to use on the go, and is available in quite a few countries. It has a good payout threshold for PayPal on $10. The payout threshold for the other available rewards depends on the specific reward.

#11 – SurveyRewardz

More info: Read full SurveyRewardz review

Short summary:
SurveyRewardz is a great PayPal survey site, as it pays out very quickly. You can get paid already when you have made $1, which is a very low payout threshold and the big advantage of this survey site.

SurveyRewardz offers a good amount of surveys. When you are logged in, you can start scanning for available surveys. It sometimes takes a bit of time to find the available surveys, but it in general has a good amount – especially for the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK, but you can also join it from other countries, but you will likely have less opportunities.

In addition to paying out through PayPal, SurveyRewardz offers to pay you by check or Amazon gift cards.

#13 – InstaGC

instagc logoAvailable: Worldwide
PayPal payout threshold: $1
Other payment methods: Gift card and Bitcoins

Short summary:
InstaGC is one of the sites that offer many different ways to earn. In addition to paid surveys, you can also earn by taking Figure Eight tasks, watch videos, play games, signing up for free trials, downloading apps, betting on sports games and more.

Even though it is open for all countries, the opportunities can vary from country to country. Most opportunities are for English-speaking countries, but it will also have some decent opportunities in other countries. It takes a little time to get learn to navigate and find the best opportunities on the site, but with a little patience, it can still be a site worth considering.

A great thing about InstaGC is that you can not only get paid through PayPal – you can get paid already when you have earned $1, which means that you can get a payout very quickly.

Other payment methods: Check
More info: Read full Vindale Research review

Short summary:
Vindale research has existed for many years, and you can earn by taking surveys, watching videos, inviting friends, and reading emails. It has a decent amount of opportunities to earn.

It does however have a very high payout threshold, so you have to earn $50, before you can get paid through PayPal. This is extremely high compared to the other sites on the list, and it will take quite a bit of patience and time to get to the payout threshold. So only worth joining, if you want to join as many sites a possible. If you want to prioritize your time, you should go for some of the sites on the list that requires less patience.

#16 – EarningStation

earningstation logoAvailable in: US
PayPal payout threshold: $25
Other payment methods: Gift cards
More info: Read full EarningStation review

Short summary:

In addition to take online surveys, you can also earn by taking offers, bonuses for logging in every day, watching videos, playing games, reading emails, and more.

#17 – Green Panthera

Greenpanthera panelAvailable in: Worldwide
PayPal payout threshold: $30
Other payment methods: No
More info: Read full GreenPanthera review

Short summary:
GreenPanthera offers several daily surveys, and you will get an email every time there is a new survey available. The surveys pay pretty well in relation to the time spent, which is a big plus. Unfortunately, you will receive many emails with invitations to surveys that you will then find out you do not qualify for after you have clicked the link.

It is annoying having to click many invitations before getting one you can take, but luckily it only takes a few seconds, before you will know whether you qualify or not. But because of the decent rewards and easiness of the site, it is can still be worth considering, if you have the patience to click several invitations, before you find a survey you can participate in.

PayPal is the only payout method offered by Green Panthera. Unfortunately, the payout threshold is a bit high, as you have to earn $30, before you can request a payout, and it takes a little patience to reach on this site.

#18 – CashCrate

Available in: Worldwide, but most opportunities for US, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, and France.
PayPal payout threshold: $20
Other payment methods: Check
More info: Read full CashCrate review

Short summary:
CashCrate has several daily surveys, but also has a number of different other ways to make money. You can take offers like signing up for websites, buying online products, watching videos and more. CashCrate also regularly runs contest, where you have a chance to win extra cash.

CashCrate in general has decent earning potentials, but the only disadvantage is, that the amount of surveys and offers you can take depends a lot on where in the world you live. There are most opportunities in English speaking countries. You just have to be aware that you might have to click several survey and offers before finding the ones you can participate in, so you have to be a bit patient.

You can get paid in cash through PayPal or check. Be aware that the first time you request a payment, it has to be by check. After that, you can choose between check and PayPal.

#19 – Onlinepanel.net

onlinepanel logoAvailable in: around 20 countries
PayPal payout threshold: $10
Other payment methods: N/A
More info: Full review coming soon

Short summary:
Onlinepanel.net is a site that only pays out through PayPal. It has several ways to earn, as you can earn by taking surveys, do Figure Eight tasks, download apps, and more. It is however not higher on the list as most of the surveys and offers it has are just offers from other survey sites.

So in many cases it makes more sense to take the offers/surveys directly on other sites, but it still does have other offers as well. It is also a legit PayPal survey site, and is therefore on the list. It has the most opportunities for English-speaking countries, but does have opportunities for quite a few other countries as well.

As it is only this kind of surveys it offers, you will not be offered surveys very often compared to many other survey sites, but it can be a great way to contribute to modern research. You can get paid through PayPal once you have earned $7. There will however be a small fee for this. If you wait until you have earned $28, there is no fee, but with the number of surveys you get on Prolific, it will take a while to reach that amount.
