Paidera claims on its website it is the best survey and Get-Paid-To site.
I have tested hundreds of these sites so I decided to put it to the test and see if it can really live up to its claims.
So is Paidera real and legit way to earn or a scam to sty away from?
Let me just reveal right away that it is not a scam site, BUT if you do not know what you are getting into, you can end up wasting A LOT of time.
In this Paidera review, I will give you all the details about what I found after joining and if it will be worth your time or not so you know what you are getting into before signing up.
What is Paidera and what does the site offer?
The first time I heard about this platform was because someone asked me about it on my YouTube channel.
I decided to check it out and see what it really offers and if Paidera is real or fake.
The first thing I noticed when I came to their website was the claim that they are the best.
With so many great Get-Paid-To (GPT) and survey sites out there, this is a bold claim. I decided to test it and see if it can really live up to its claims.
Let me just right away reveal that it is NOT the best site as it claims, in my opinion. However, since I first tested it, it definitely has made some improvements but the platform is still using a lot of tricks you need to be aware of before joining.
This does not mean it cannot be worth it for you, but you definitely need to know what it really offers so you know what to expect.
So let’s go over how you can earn as a member of Paidera and how good the options are compared to other similar sites.
I have created a video that gives you an inside look so you can see exactly what it offers and how to use it. You can also read all the details below the video:

Option 1 – Paidera surveys
The earning option with the most opportunities on Paidera.com is to take paid surveys. It actually has a very big amount of available surveys.
It has its own Paidera surveys and it also has extrenal surveys.
The great thing about its own surveys is that you seem to be able to qualify for more or less all of them. I do, however, think there is a reason for this that I will explain in a minute and it does not mean the surveys are worth taking.
I think it is great Paidera offers so many surveys, but the first thing I do not like about it is that you cannot see a time estimate before you start taking a survey.
I tried a couple of surveys, and they really took long for the reward I got compared to the top paying survey sites.
One of the reasons for this is that the way you take surveys on Paidera is quite different from other survey sites.
Every time you have answered a question, it checks the question and you have to wait around 5 seconds to get to the next question.
In the meantime, you just see a screen with many ads and when you finally can move on, you have to click a button between two big ads where you can almost not avoid clicking the ads instead.
You have to do this for every single question with makes it extremely tedious to take surveys on Paidera.
For me, it looks like you can qualify for so many of the surveys because the real goal is not really to get market research out of it but to get you to click ads so they can get paid for this.
In their defense, I will say that you do get the money into your Paidera account as soon as you have taken a survey. But the rewards are very low for the time spent compared to other survey sites.
Also, be aware that if you click an ad at any point while taking a survey, it opens in the same window in most cases. This means you are taken away from the survey you are in the middle of taking and you will therefore not get paid for it.
You would have to start it all over and this can be very annoying if you have, for example, already spent 15 minutes answering a survey and suddenly by accident click an ad.
And there is a big risk of clicking and ad by accident as the buttons and answers you need to click are placed very close to ads so there is a big risk you will end up wasting time by having to start over with surveys.
This is also the reason I say that it seems the real goal of the Paidera surveys is not to do market research but to show ads to you as Paidera gets paid for this.
So overall, the Paidera surveys are very poor, in my opinion. Especially, because many of the surveys are even locked so you cannot take them before you have invited a certain number of people to join Paidera (more about this in the referral section later).
There are some external surveys you can take from known survey providers and this work more like regular surveys. However, these extrenal surveys pay extremely low rewards compared to what you can get for the exact same surveys on many other platforms.
Therefore, it is just not worth taking surveys on Paidera, in my opinion.
Option 2 – Tasks
Micro tasks are usually a great way to earn a bit extra on GPT sites.
Also here Paidera.com is different from other sites. The tasks are actually more like paid offers.
However, usually for paid offers, you can get some pretty good rewards. But that is just not the case on Paidera.
You can find the same paid offers here as you can on many other GPT sites but the rewards you get on Paidera are signifincatly lower.
So if you want to earn by taking any of these offers, I strongly encourage you to take them on other GPT sites as you will get a lot more out of it and it will be the exact same offers.
Option 3 – Create videos
Getting paid to create videos sounds fun, right?
Paidera offers this option. But before getting too excited, you need to know the conditions.
It is basically an option where you can earn a bit for promoting Paidera.
You have to create different videos about Paidera and upload them to YouTube. For this, you will get between $0.20-$0.45 per video.
Again, this is a very low reward for the effort it takes to create a video and upload it. And they have a lot of requirements about how the video needs to be as you can see an example of in the image above.
Also, I have experienced several times that people have stolen my video review of Paidera (the one earlier in this review) and uploaded it to their own channel. This is deeply unethical and also goes against YouTube’s guidelines and the videos will be taken down. And this is just a very unethical way of promoting, in my opinion.
I am not saying this is Paidera’s fault, but because of the way they push you to promote them (more about this later) you can argue that it encourages people to do whatever it takes to promote them.
Option 4 – Write articles/reviews
This option is similar to the one above.
Here you just have to create an article or blog post or Paidera.com reviews instead of a video.
You need to post the article in a well-known blogs, forums, or review sites to get paid for it. If they approve it, you get 10 quota points as you can see in the image above.
There are several issues about this, in my opinion.
First of all, they do not describe anywhere what you can use these quota points for. It is not mentioned on their FAQ page and there is no info about it on their payout page. So you have no idea what you will really get for this.
Furthermore, you will very likely risk getting banned from forums if you start writing promotional articles/reviews like this. Moderators on forums are smart enough to see when it is promotions disguised as articles.
So really not worth the effort and risk, in my opinion.
Option 5 – Refer people
It is very common for a GPT site to have a referral program where you can earn a bit extra by inviting other people to join. Paidera also has such a program.
However, it is very different from any other referral program I have seen – and I do NOT mean this is a good way.
Because on Paidera you are pushed to promote the site if you want to earn. Because, as mentioned earlier, most of the surveys are, for example, locked until after you have invited a certain number of people.
As you can see in the image above, in that case, the survey is locked until you have shared your Paidera referral link 345 times.
First of all, to even demand that you share a referral link to be able to use other earning methods is ridiculous, in my opinion, and something I have not seen on any other site.
In addition to this, the number of shares you have to do is even more ridiculous. And they keep making more and more demands about shares as you move around the platform and want to get your earnings.
However, I want to add that this has improved a bit since my initial review. The number of referrals you need to get to access some of the surveys are not quite as high any more. But to get 100+ referrals is still a lot which they still require for a lot of the surveys.
This pressure to promote them is also the reason I every day see several people spamming their Paidera promotional link in comments on my YouTube videos and in comments on my website.
People are desperate to get enough shares and just spam them everywhere. In my opinion, any site where you have to go around spamming to get a chance to just earn a little is a complete waste of time.
And even if you can share the link as many times as it is required, the rewards you get on Paidera is very low compared to many other sites – especially if you also think about all the time you have to spend on finding places to share your link.

How do you get paid?
Overall, you can properly already now see that I am not impressed with the earning opportunities on Paidera. But you can earn, and it might be for you.
But before deciding, you also need to know how you can get your money if you decide to join.
The payout method Paidera offers is PayPal. That is a great way to get your earnings in cash.
The threshold on Paidera is, however, quite high.
If you invite other people to join, you can get a payout when you have earned $20. But for this, you need to have invited more than 150 people to join.
That is a lot and, in my opinion, difficult as it is not really a platform worth recommending to people. Again, an example of how Paidera pushes you to promote them to an excessive degree, in my opinion.
If you do not want to invite people, you cannot get a payout until you have earned $30. With the very low rewards on Paidera, this will take a looong time. This has, however, improved since I first reviewed Paidera as it used to be $50.
It is still very high but at least a bit lower now than it used to be. It would just be a lot better if they did not have any referral requirements like this and requirements like this is not something I have seen on any other GPT site.
It is great PayPal is the payout method, but there are so many great PayPal reward sites with a lot better options and conditions. Some of them even let you cash out already when you have earned $1 (and without any referral requirements).
So there are definitely sites where your time is better spent, in my experience.
How much money can you make?
Honestly, you should not expect to be able to earn much on Paidera.
It has extremely low rewards and it takes a lot of patience to make any real money.
And with the very high payout threshold, you have to work hard and long to ever get a payout.
Also, be aware that they can close your account at any time without warning – I have tried this myself.
In my case, one day when I tried to log in, I got the message you can see above. I must also say that I really did not use it because I think it is a waste of time, but it was still surprising to see they had just closed the account without any warning.
Many sites will close your account if you have not been active but they will usually send you an email warning about this first so you get a chance to stay active – that was NOT the case for Paidera.
Also, not only can they close your account at any time without warning you will also not be able to then create a new account and you will not get your earnings.
In general, I think it is completely fair when sites ban people that try to use bots, VPN, or cheat in other ways. But banning someone and not allowing them to create a new account just because they are not active shows how little Paidera cares about its members, in my opinion.
It also shows that it can be risky to invest too much time because they can easily find a reason to ban you and from feedback, I have heard since I first published this review, it is clear that it happens regularly.
Can you use it on mobile?
Usually, I always look at how good a survey or GPT site is to use on mobile as it is great to be able to earn on the go.
There is no Paidera app you can download to earn on the go.
But in this case, I honestly do not really care because I will not be using it in the future because it is not worth the time, in my opinion.
But just in case you are interested in using it, I can tell you that it is possible to use it on mobile.
The website is optimized for mobile so you can use it even on smaller screens.
Who can join Paidera?
One good thing about Paidera is that you can join no matter the country you live in.
And it seems that you can qualify for more or less all surveys no matter where you live. This gives some opportunities for countries where you usually cannot find a lot of paid surveys.
BUT it takes a lot of patience to earn with the surveys on Paidera. So no matter where you live, I would instead suggest you to check out the best survey sites in your country.
Can you get support?
If you need support on Paidera, there is a section where you can submit a support ticket.
It does not say how long it will take to get an answer, but at least you can easily find the section and submit a ticket.
It would be nice if there also was a FAQ section with answers for the most common issues. Most sites have this, and it would be great to have.
I would, for example, love to know more about the rules for the VIP section, and it would be obvious to put this in a FAQ section. But if you want any extra info, it seems like you have to write their support.
It seems like you can actually earn on Paidera and it offers a legit payout method. This does, however, not mean it will be worth your time.
To give you a better overview before deciding, let’s finish this review by summing up the pros and the cons.
- Free to join
- You qualify for all Paidera surveys
- Very low rewards
- The surveys take a long time and are covered in ads
- No FAQ section
- Very high payout threshold
- You are forced to promote them if you want to earn more
- They close accounts without warning
Overall, my biggest issue with Paidera is the extremely low value for your time compared to other sites. And that you are more or less forced to promote them to be able to use most of the earning methods.
It is not a very user-friendly site and with so many great alternatives it is definitely NOT a site I recommend and it is definitely NOT the best site as it claims.
If you want to use reward sites, I instead suggest you check out the top paying survey GPT sites in your country that all have more and better opportunities.
