Why I made a Top 10 list

After having seen my list of the best survey sites, I just want to clarify how I have made this list. I have tested all the sites thoroughly myself, and not only tested the sites on the top 10 list. I have tested MANY more sites, and I am continuously testing new ones. You can find reviews of all the sites I have tested on this website. I decided to make a list of the best sites to make it easy for other people to get started with getting paid from online surveys, by showing which sites, I have found to be the best and why.

I will however recommend that you also read the reviews of the sites, as I have a lot of advices and tips for the different sites in these reviews. By reading them, you will get more information, and it will be easier for you to choose the sites that are right for you – the ones that are the best for me, might not necessarily be the best for you. There can be certain things that makes a survey site very good in for example one country, but not very attractive in another. I have done my best to put this kind of information in the reviews and in the descriptions of the survey sites.

How do I decide what sites make it to the top 10?

You might be wondering how I made a Top 10 when there are hundreds of survey sites out there. I must admit that I have not been able to test every single survey site there is, but I have tested a lot, and I will continue to test as many as possible. I will therefore also continously update the list above.

When testing survey sites, I look at how much money it is possible to make in relation to the time spent, how often they have available surveys, how easy it is to use, how do they pay (paypal, vouchers, gifts etc.) and more. The ratings above are given based on these parameters, when I compare a certain site to survey sites in general. All this put together, leads to my Top 10.

Some sites, I have also decided not even to try to sign up for now, as they are easy to spot as being a scam. Some of these you will be able to find scam warnings about in the review section. There are for example sites that want you to pay a large amount of money to get access to surveys (in general I would advice not to join a site that charges you for access to surveys). I have written an general article about how you can avoid these survey scams, so you know what to consider before joining a survey site, and how to spot the ones that you should stay away from.

If you have other experiences, disagree or agree with the list, please feel free to leave a comment below. Would be great to hear about your experiences as well.

    Just an update, mindfield online, I never heard from you too much on it, but I did notice that on the front page stuff dated only to 2017, and after trying them I screened outta every survey and was almost all the way thru them, kinda disappointed.

    Mysurvey was my favorite, but now the make paypal 2 weeks to deliver and wasnt aware even egift cards are 5 to 10 business days. They owe me for several surveys and are taking very long to respond and giving me bogus replys when they do. Not sure whats going on.

    Not sure if you know but Globaltest market is changing names, they haven’t announced it yet, it’s in the works.

    What do you think about Surveyclub, and Rewardsurvey? happened to run across them? Mercury magazines is legit, i receive some good magazines. well thank you for all your information, and I want to give back anything I hear or see to you…take care. darlene

      Thank you so much for the update and for the info Darlene. I really appreciate it.

      I was not aware that GlobalTestMarket is changing its name. Can I ask where you got that info? Would be great to know more about.

      I actually just recently did a review of Survey Club. In my opinion, it is a waste of time as it is not a real survey site. You cannot earn on the site but you just get a small superficial list of other survey sites you can join.

      I have not tested Rewardsurvey and Mercury Magazines yet. Will write them on the list of sites to check out. Thanks for the tip.

      Some good sites on the list above that are available in U.A.E are ClixSense, PrizeRebel, Toluna, Superpay.me, and GrabPoints.

      Depending on how many you want to join and how much time you have, I would first of all recommend to check out the first three I mention, and if you want more opportunities also check out the last two I mention.

      Hope this helps and let me know, if you have more questions.

    What do you think of VIP VOICE, Mindfield online internet panel and quickbites? Am I wasting my time?

    Reply
    • Mikael

      Hi Darlene,

      I have actually not tested any of these sites myself yet, but will put them on my list of sites to test and write reviews about. I have however had a quick look. Be aware that on VIP Voice and Shoppers Voice you will not be paid in cash. Other rewards can also be great, but just so you are aware of this.

      Quickbites is a kind of community for food lovers, where you can get food related surveys. My first impression is that it might be fun, if you love food, but you should probably not expect too many earning opportunities. Will know more once I have tested it properly. Cannot unfortunately not say much about Mindsfield at the moment – it looks legit but a bit old fashioned, but cannot say anything about the opportunities yet.

      Hope this helps.

          I just had a quick look. It seems they are paying differently depending on the offer/survey you take. Sometimes you will get rewards or chances to win prizes, but they also pay in cash through check or PayPal.

Still feeling out which ones i benefit from. Have a choice of like 30 of them. But pick and choose and have a program i set up, took alot of homework just to do that, which you need to do to set up your time wisely and to which sites and know how to use the site to make the most out of it…thanks again.

    You can also check my best earning survey site Timebucks that pay to complete offers, do surveys, play games, take pictures, have fun and get paid⏱️

    Reply
    • Mikael

      Thank you. I have actually made a whole review of Timebucks. I agree it has some good options, but many of the opportunities do not pay as well as on many other sites, and it therefore takes longer to get to the payout threshold in my experience. That is why Timebucks is not on the top 10 list on the best survey sites.

      But thanks for the suggestion.

    Hello. Any chance that you can recommend any survey sites for Romania where I’ll stay for awhile. From my experience MOBROG & Paidviewpoint sucks and are not serious on giving surveys or points when you complete retails as they ask and declared when you join.

    Reply
    • Mikael

      Hi Joe,

      Do not really know many particular survey sites just for Romania. But GlobalTestMarket does have a panel just for Romania. Other than that, it would have to be the sites that are available more or less worldwide. On the list above these sites include ClixSense, PrizeRebel, and Superpay.me.

      Thanks for also sharing your opinion about Mobrog and PaidViewpoint. Mobrog can take some patience to find the surveys you qualify for, and in my experience and from what I hear from others as well, it is very often you do not qualify, so it can take some time to reach the payout threshold.

      PaidViewpoint does not offer many surveys, but the ones you are offered, you definitely should be able to complete. One of the benefits of PaidViewpoint is that you are never offered surveys you do not qualify for. However, if you do not live in an English-speaking country, it does not make sense to join PaidViewpoint, as you will more or less never get any real paying surveys other than the daily short TraitScore surveys.

      Hope this helps and let me know, if you have any more questions.

        • Mikael

          Be aware that on Clixsense it can sometimes take a bit of time to find the surveys you qualify depending on the country. But after a while, it is possible to figure out what kind of surveys you mostly qualify for. Also, notice that ClixSense has several other ways to earn like the offers and the Figure Eight tasks. The tasks do not pay much in the beginning, but as you take more, you will get higher rewards.

          Did you try Triaba, as it has a specific site for Saudi Arabia? Ipsos i-say is another site that has a specific site there. Timebucks is a site that will for sure have some ways for you to earn in Saudi Arabia – not sure how many surveys it will have, and many of the other tasks do not pay very well, but it always has some ways to earn available no matter the country you live in.

          Hope this gives you a few more ideas and can help you find some sites that work for you. Feel free to keep me updated how the opportunities are for you on those sites. It is always great for me to hear feedback about the different sites in different countries and take this into consideration in my reviews.

          I do not know too many sites that have specific offers for Barbados but several of the sites on the list above are available there. I would, first of all, recommend you to check out ClixSense, PrizeRebel, and Superpay.me, as these are some of the sites that in general have the best worldwide opportunities.

        I did join the other sites more recently so taking it a day at a time.

      There is as such no way you can make sure to qualify for all surveys – there will always be some you disqualify for. However, a big part of it is to make sure you join the best sites for your country, as you will then have the most opportunities. I have written an article about how to qualify more often, you can check out for more details.

    • Mikael

      Hi Benjamin,

      It depends on the specific survey site and the gift card you are claiming. Most are e-certificates, so you will receive them right away electronically. There are however some cases, where you will receive it physically. So to be sure, you have to check on the specific survey site and for the specific gift card.

      Hope this answers your question, and let me know if you have any other questions.

      Hi Jane,

      I have made a list of the best survey opportunities in the Philippines. You can check out that list – many of them have other payout methods than PayPal. Also, if you want to join sites that only has PayPal, it is free to get an account there, so it can also be worth considering. But check out the list to get some ideas. As mentioned many of them offer several payout methods, so you can choose the ones with the best options for you.

      Hi Rose,

      Once you have signed up for Mobrog, you will receive an email when there is an available survey. You will not qualify for all of them, and how many you are offered depends on the country you live in. In the country I live in, it takes patience to find the surveys you qualify for on Mobrog compared to other sites, but this is different from country to country, and it is easy to use as you just have to sign up and will the start receiving survey invites.

      Hope this helps and let me know if you have any more questions.

      Once you have joined the survey sites that offer PayPal as a payout option, it is quite easy to get paid. Usually you just go to the reward or payout section on the site, and then choose PayPal. If you have registered on the site with the email address you are also using for PayPal, you will then automatically get the money into your PayPal account.

      Hope this helps and let me know if you have any more questions.

      Hi Ahmed,

      Can I ask you which survey sites you have already joined and are not finding any available surveys on? Have you tried ClixSense and Superpay.me? Toluna, Triaba and Mobrog could also be good options, as they have specific panels for Nigeria.

      Hope this helps and feel free to keep me updated on how it goes. Would be great to hear about which sites you end up having the best experiences with.

      Also, no matter what just remember that taking paid surveys will not make you a full-time income if that is what you mean, when you say you want to make real good money online. It can make some great extra money on the side, but it will not make you rich. If what you are looking for is to create a full-time income online, then you can instead check out my article about how to create an online business/full-time income.

          • Mikael

            You are very right that the US surveys will pay more and give more opportunities. I have written an article about using a VPN to take surveys, as this can hide your IP. BUT this is something you have to be careful about, and I do not really recommend it, as you will also see in the article.

            Most survey panels will detect if you try this, as they of course want to make sure people tell the truth. If they detect it, you will have your account blocked. So there is not really a great way to be able to for example take USA surveys, if you live in Nigeria – sorry.

      Can I ask which phone you are using? Because most of the sites are optimized for mobile use, and should be fairly easy to navigate, but it of course depends on the size of the screen.

      But several of them also have an app that can make the a lot easier to use. I have written an article about survey sites that are easy to use on mobile, if you want to read a bit more about that.

      But on the top 10 list Swagbucks, Toluna, and GlobalTestMarket have an app you can download. And PrizeRebel + ClixSense are pretty well optimized for mobile use, but of course sometimes the surveys themselves are not, which means you might have to zoom in and out a bit.

You will also be able to join PrizeRebel no matter where you live, but it will not give you many surveys in Africa, but there might still be some offers and CrowdFlower tasks you can take.

      So these are the sites I would recommend you to check out first.

      Thanks for the comment Roger.

      I have been a member of Toluna for almost 2 years, and have been paid many times from them. I have never had any problems. It takes a looong time from you request payment until you actually get the money compared to other survey sites, but I have not had any problems getting my rewards. Sometimes people get kicked out of survey sites without warning, if they violate the terms and conditions and especially if they have tried to cheat in one way or another. In general a site should however be able to give an explanation to why someone has been banned. Not nice to hear that you have heard this about Toluna, but you are welcome to send me a link to where you have seen some of the complaints and I will be happy to look at it.

      As mentioned, I have only had good experiences with Toluna, and not had any problems getting paid.

      Thanks for your feedback Reebeka. Glad to hear you like the article.

      You can sign up for many sites from Portugal. I would for a start recommend ClixSense, Global Test Market, and Prize Rebel. You can also consider Green Panthera. All of those allow you to sign up from Portugal. Exactly how many opportunities they give in your country is difficult to say, because it varies from country to country, but those sites are in general good from many countries.

      You can also check out my review of Gift Hunter Club. It is not in my top 10 list, but it is still a pretty good site. The reason I think it might be interesting to you is that it is supposed to have particular many opportunities for Spanish-speaking countries. I do however not know if that also goes for Portugal, or if it is mostly for Spain and Latin America.

      Feel free to keep me updated on how it goes, and how you find the opportunities from Portugal on the different sites. I love getting feedback, and it also helps me with future recommendations.

      I know that GlobalTestMarket and Toluna have surveys for Vietnam. There are also other sites on my top 10 that allow members from Vietnam to sign up, but how many offers you will get on these is difficult to say. Sometimes survey sites allow members to sign up from any country, but only have a very limited amount of opportunities for certain countries. So you would have to check them out and see for yourself to be sure. These sites are PrizeRebel, CashCrate and Superpay.me. And feel free to let me know about the opportunities these sites offer in Vietnam, as I love to hear about how it is in different countries, so I can advice people better and better.

      There are some risk involved in using a fake IP address, and most survey sites will not allow it. I have written an article about this that you can read for more information about this: Article about surveys and VPN.

      Inbox Dollars only pays in check, but both Swagbucks and Vivatic pays out to PayPal. And as PayPal is available in Vietnam, you could get paid through that.

      Hope this helps, and let me know if you have any other questions.

      ClixSense is a good site and allow people from Africa (as you probably already know from the answer I gave you on my ClixSense review).

      But there are also several other sites that allows member from Africa. Superpay.me allows members from all countries to join. And Toluna is also available in many countries, even though not as many as ClixSense and Superpay.me. A site like PrizeRebel will also let you join, but will not have a lot of opportunites for Africa. Exactly how many opportunities the different sites will have once you join can vary a lot depending on where you live. So I would advice you to join the sites you are allowed to join and see what is available in your specific country. And feel free to keep me updated. I would love to know about your experiences with the different sites in Africa.

        Thanks for the response. I managed to register at ClixSense but I failed to log in everytime I make an attempt I get this message “Your session is invalid or has expired.” or if it accepts when I hit Surveys I get the same message. I have changed password, re-entered my personal information but no change. I have emailed them to help me however. I also managed to register at PaidViewpoint but as of today I do not see any surveys or where to look for them. Do you know anything about Padlock Income? I registered but failed to login that either my email or password are invalid. After registering with Payoneer they sent me a message that they have sent me a dedit card, where or how do I use it since I cant use Paypal? Thanks!

        Reply
        • Mikael

          Glad I could help Milar. Sounds strange about ClixSense. You are not using any VPN or proxy right? Because I know ClixSense does not allow this and it can give problems, if you have a software like that installed. But ClixSense support is good at getting back to people, so they should hopefully also be able to explain what is going on soon. Once it has been worked out so you can login, remember that ClixSense also offers a number of other ways to earn than just surveys.

          At PaidViewpoint you will not be able to find many surveys for your location. It is mainly for people living in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia. But it allows people from other countries to sign up, but there will very rarely be any surveys for you there. You can also give PrizeRebel and Superpay.me a try. They will allow you to sign up, but I cannot guarantee how many opportunities there will be for your specific location.

          Payoneer has a lot of good “how-to” videos that will explain everything about how you use it in details. You can find them here: Payoneer Videos

          I do not really know Padlock Income, but have just done a bit of research about it. Just be aware that this is NOT free even though the site says it is. You can join for free, but eventually you have to pay to get anything out of it. It is also not a survey site, but a site that claims to give you training in online business. Can however not for sure say how good it is, but can say it to me looks like it is promising too much in relation to what is realistic in the online business world. If you are interested in going that route instead of surveys, I am myself using the platform Wealthy Affiliate that I can 100% recommend. Again this will in the long run take a bit of investment, but if you are interested in that you can read more about it here: Wealthy Affiliate Info

          Let me know how it goes with ClixSense, and just ask if you have more questions.

            I failed to log into ClixSense, on computer it says am using a proxy server (I cannot change that because i access free internet at work) on my tablet Samsung 3 seems it does not allow Adobe flashplayer…so I gave up. Btw I was once a member of Wealthy Affiliate for 2 months but i unsubscribed because it was too expensive for me and most things do not apply given my location. I am now getting PaidViewPoint surveys now and then.

          • Mikael

            Thanks for the update Milar. I appreciate you getting back to me.

            Sorry to hear you did not manage to log in to ClixSense. Some survey sites are very strict when it comes to the use of a proxy, because they do not want people to cheat with their location. So unfortunately that means that using a proxy even when it is not to cheat, will often not be allowed. A few sites do not have a problem with using a proxy. A site like CashCrate does allow it currently, but does not have a lot of offers in Africa however.

            But great to hear that you once in a while are getting some surveys from PaidViewpoint. I am also continously testing new sites, so if you keep an eye on the updates og sign up for the newsletter, you can see when I post reviews of new survey sites. Maybe some of them will be good for your location.

            And thanks for letting me know about your experience with Wealthy Affiliate.

            Let me know if you get any more question.

          Yes there are many more surveys available in the US than in most other countries. So I understand why you want to get an US ip address. But several survey sites I know of offer surveys in most parts of the world – are there really none that offer in Venezuela? There probably won’t be as many as in the US, but there should still be some. I myself am living in a small European country and I can get access to plenty of surveys.

          But if you really need a VPN service, I am unfortunately not an expert and cannot advice you which one to chose. Just be aware that some survey sites can detect if you use a VPN and will ban you for doing this. I know a good website about VPN’s however, so maybe you can find more information there, about which one to chose: http://uktvservicesabroad.com/

        Glad to hear you like the information on my website Suzan.

        It is a shame that survey sites often has a bad reputation. I think it is mainly due to two reasons: 1) that there unfortunately are many scam sites 2) people have unrealistic expectations or join a site that is not relevant for them. So very happy if my site can help you and others to make the most out of survey sites and find the right ones.
