Is Streetbees Legit or Waste of Time? (Get an Inside View)

Streetbees Rating

Streetbees offers some fun and different tasks you can do to earn a bit extra. But the support is inconsistent and there is no guarantee your work will be approved.

Streetbees is a little different from many other paid survey and GPT (get-paid-to) sites.

But is Streetbees legit and a good way to make some extra money, or is it just a waste of time?

Let me just reveal right away that it is legit, BUT this does not necessarily mean it will be worth your time (in some cases it might not be).

In this Streetbees review, you will find out exactly what the platform has to offer, in what way it is different from many other similar sites, and what you can expect from joining.

After reading the review, you will easily be able to decide whether it is worth it for YOU to join Streetbees or not.

What is Streetbees and what does the platform offer?

Streetbees is an interesting site – or more correctly an interesting app. When I first joined, you could sign up on the website, but now you can only join by downloading the Streetbess app and this is where you can find the earning opportunities I will go over below.

Compared to many other paid survey sites and GPT sites, the ways you can earn are a bit different. It is not only “normal” surveys you can take. You instead get what is called tasks, and a part of these are sometimes to answers questions/surveys as well.

There are many kinds of tasks, and they are often more or less different from task to task. So it is not possible to describe the exact tasks, you will be able to take. But there are some elements that are often a part of the Streetbees tasks, so let’s go over these below, so you have an idea about what to expect.

Before going over the elements that are often a part of the tasks, it can be helpful to understand that the overall goal of Streetbees is to provide insight to companies about consumers’ preferences and behavior.

They do this by getting you to provide information about your habits and then paying you for this information. That is why you will be able to get paid to do some of the tasks described below.

I have made a video that explains everything you need to know but you can also read all the details below the video:

Option 1 – Tasks that include recording small videos:

Some tasks require you to make small video recordings. This is to get information about how you do certain things in your life. It can, for example, be to make a recording while you clean. Or take a short video while you are making tea.

streetbees tasks
Sometimes you have to do small recordings.

It makes sense that they are interested in these kinds of videos. They can provide a lot of useful information about consumer behavior.

Sometimes probably better information than when people answer surveys. When it is a video, the companies can see what you actually do, and not only what you say, as it is not always the same for many of us:-)

So small video recordings are a part of several of the tasks on Streetbees.

Option 2 – Survey based tasks:

There are also tasks that are more similar to the regular paid surveys that most survey sites offer. Paid surveys can be great if you join the good survey sites, so I think it is great that Streetbees also have some of these.

It simply means that you will have to answer different questions about a certain topic and this way share your opinion and experiences.

The surveys on Streetbees are, however, mostly chat-style and very short, so it is faster than on most regular paid survey sites. But the surveys will also not give you the same earnings as on the top paying sites.

Some tasks include short surveys.

Compared to the video tasks, it is easier to do no matter where you are. Questions are often a part of the other tasks as well, as it is a way to get more information.

Option 3 – Tasks that include taking photos:

Streetbees also has a number of tasks that require you to take a photo or several photos in a specific situation. It can, for example, be taking a photo while you are making coffee, or it can be to take several photos, while you are out shopping.

Often you then also have to answer a few questions in relation to the photos.

This is a great way for the companies to get insight into your preferences and how you do things, but it can also be fun for you to participate in, so in my opinion, it is a great option.

Become a Streetbees ambassador to earn more

As you can see above, there are many different kinds of tasks, and you might even be offered some tasks that are very different from what I have described above.

One thing many of them have in common is that you are doing them while doing something else – maybe even while you are out of your house and on the street (that is why it is called Streetbees I assume).

There is, however, another way you can earn some extra money, and that is by becoming a Streetbees ambassador.

streetbees ambassador
You can apply to become a Streetbees Ambassador to earn extra.

In short, a Streetbees ambassador is someone that helps the platform to expand in your country. This is not a full-time job or anything like this. It is mostly for students who are used to using social media, who can influence other people, and who have 2-3 hours a week to do this work.

What you need to do is to spread the word about Streetbees by referring friends and family to participate in the tasks. You also have the chance to help with running social media campaigns in your country.

You will get paid every time a person you have invited completes a task. How much you get paid will depend on the country you live in and the task.

On Streetbees’ website, it also says that you will get training, and you might also have the opportunity to get an internship at Streetbees New York or London office.

You have to apply on Streetbees’ website to become an ambassador. So if you like Streetbees and would like to earn a little extra by promoting it, it can be worth considering applying for this.

I have tried to apply and also got into a conversation about what it would require. But it took a very long time to get answers from Streetbees and the communication from their side was not great, in my opinion.

So personally I have given up on this opportunity through Streetbees. But if you like the platform and would like to help it expand, then why not try to apply. You might have more luck than me:-)

How do you get paid?

When you take a task on Streetbees, you will get the money into your Streetbees account. From here you can get them out through PayPal.

I personally think it is great when sites offer PayPal as a payment method, as it is a very easy and fast way to get your money.

If you live in a country where PayPal is not available, you can get paid by mobile top up. These two are the only payout methods that are available.

However, be aware that when you have completed a task, you need to have it approved before you actually get the earnings. An in some cases, they will not approve your work.

I have tried this myself and I did not get any explanation but just some generic explanation about why a task might not be approved.

This is an issue you need to be aware of – it is fair enough not to get your work approved if you have not done it properly. But they should then at least give a good explanation so you can learn from it.

So you can potentially end up not getting paid for the tasks you do without getting an explanation.

How much money can you make?

Streetbees can make you some extra pocket money, but you should not expect to be able to quit your job after you join.

The amount of tasks that are available to you, and how much they pay, depends a lot on the country you live in. So in some countries, you will not very often have available tasks, and in others you will have several tasks a week you can do.

But no matter where you live, you should not join, if you want to join to make a living. You should join if you would like to make some extra pocket money, if you would like to give feedback to companies, and if you think the tasks are fun to do.

compared to other sites there is, however, overall not very frequent tasks and ways to earn, in my experience. So you should definitely not join it as the only site.

With the right expectations, it can be decent to join, but if you expect more, you will be disappointed and the tasks will end up being boring and tedious.

Who can join?

Streetbees is available in 87 countries. They do, however, not mention exactly which countries on their website or in the app. This is a general problem on the site and in the app, in my opinion – there is not a lot of information.

So if you are interested in joining, you just need to check if the Streetbees app is available in your country. You have to be 18 years old to be able to join.

where is streetbees available
Streetbees is available in 87 countries.

You have to download the app to join. It is available for Android and iOS.

When you sign up, just be aware you have to give your phone number. You will receive a verification code in a text message and you need this to complete your registration.

Often you are not allowed to use survey or GPT sites when you are in another country than where you registered. That is not the case for Streetbees.

You are actually encouraged to check the app when you are traveling. The tasks are determined by your location, so you will just be offered the tasks that are available in the country you are in.

Be aware that the tasks will be in the local language, so if you are in a country, where you do not speak the language, it is not possible for you to participate.

Can you get support?

If you need support, Streetbees has several ways you can contact them. You can send an email (you can find the contact info on the website), or you can contact them through one of the many social media channels where Streetbees has a profile.

I have been in contact with their support several times and I must say I am not impressed with it as it has been very inconsistent. Sometimes it has taken weeks before I got an answer and only after I contacted them again. Other times it has only taken a few days.

So if you need help from them, it can sometimes take some patience, in my experience. And there is not much help to get from their FAQ section on the website as there is very little information. In the app, you can also not find an FAQ section.

So overall, I definitely think Streetbess could become more consistent with their support and also provide more information in the app and on the website.

Final verdict

One thing that is clear is that Streetbees is not a scam. It is a legit opportunity to make some extra pocket money.

But let’s sum up the pros and cons to give you a better overview before deciding whether it is a platform for you or not.



  • Fun and varied tasks
  • Available in many countries
  • Pays through PayPal


  • Not as many opportunities as on regular survey sites
  • Not big earning potential
  • The support is inconsistent
  • Your tasks might not get approved (and you will not get an explanation of why)

Whether Streetbees is a platform worth joining really depends on your preferences.

It can be a fun way to earn a bit extra, but personally I prefer survey sites with daily opportunities, as the earning potential is bigger here.

However, because Streetbees offers different opportunities from many other sites and apps, it can be an interesting extra platform to join – but you should definitely not join it as the only option as the opportunities are too limited for it to become a main earning app.

Now you know what you can expect and then make a decision based on this.

If you have any comments, questions, or have any experiences with Streetbees yourself, I would love to hear from you in a comment below.

  1. I just started using StreetBees, and I absolutely love it! They were very prompt and professional when I brought some accessibility concerns to them. I’m visually impaired, and I’m very proud to say that this app is more accessible now, thanks to me emailing them! I think more survey sites need to be more inclusive of those of us who have disabilities, and I’m so glad StreetBees took my feedback seriously!

    • Thanks for sharing your experiences about this. Glad to hear their support responded to you as it is a bit hit and miss whether they will reply or not, in my experience. But very glad to hear they made the app my accessible.

  2. Hello, thanks for sharing. I’m a math teacher and I make money answering questions on coursehero. Do you know of another page that is like coursehero?

  3. hello Mikael,
    have gone through your review and also comments regarding peoples experience. This is becos am willing to give it a try . although i have tried many other paid site and its not making me happy due to the policy and location barriers.

    Right now am in the Philippines and i need to know other legit paid surveys site here for me to try not withstanding am still gonna give this a try with all have had and learnt from you and others. No harm in trying since we are all at home right now.

  4. Dear sir,
    I am Rahul From india and i am using the streetbees account in the past months and i have earned around 1400 rs. But it is not enough for me. Then i thinking that can i use the streetbees application with VPN and fake location. They pay me or not when i will do this process in streetbees application.

  5. Streetbees was a fun app in the beginning. They was paying out every 48hrs to my paypal! I made a total of $40 in one month.Then next month there wer less and less tasks to do and some repetitive as well. I did them as well and then the payout to paypal starting taking a week..until I emailed them a week later and then they sent payment the next day.

    I did a task for $10 a week ago .then today it says the Streetbees app just paid me. I checked my paypal and nothing! Long story short after numerous emails back n forth with Streetbees, my email was switched to someone elses account. So now they have to review to make sure I didn’t get credit in order to pay me to the right account!..sheesh! I’m deleting this app.

    • Thanks for sharing your experience Christine. Definitely, understand you do not feel like using Streetbees anymore after those experiences. Luckily there are many great alternatives.


        • Can I ask you which other sites are your favorites? I always like hearing about new sites and testing new sites and then write reviews about them so other people can hear about the good and the bad options out there. So maybe you know of some I have not heard about yet.


    • Thanks for sharing your experience Sandra. A shame to hear you did not get all your money. Did you get any explanation why?


      • What to do if I open streetbees and no tasks appear instead it respond that “its a little quiet now”.
        I need help on this

      • Hi. I’m just join Streetbees in order to get some money. I downloaded yesterday and finished their surveys (about 53 stories) and didnt get any dollars. What does it mean?
        And then, I opened again this app this morning and saw the writing that they didn’t have any surveys for me.

        • Hi Dito,

          As explained in the review, not all surveys on Streetbees are paid which can be a bit confusing. Also, it is very normal that there are times when you cannot find any available surveys there. It is not the site with the most opportunities. That is why it is great joining other sites as well.

          Hope this helps.

    • Street bees gets a 10plus. Some of my money took longer to show up but when I let them know, they took care of it. I have made $56 dollars in my PayPal account. This site is legit so I go on it every night and the extra money is needed. thanks street bees?

      • Yup..I had to delete them as well..I guess it works better for the UK than the US..I use Bulbshare..Way better than Streetbees. Now wait for the rude comment from the guy that answered your question..because streetbees is a halfazz working app..

        • Do you think I was being rude Sunny? If that is the case I apologize as that was definitely not my intention. I just meant that since she has earned that little with that much hard work I definitely understand she will delete it and find better options.

          • You (Mikael)were rude to me one time..As I expressed my opinion about the app and shook me out of a payment..And you told me oh well theres other options out there..So I did!!.

          • I just went back and looked at the comment I left for you 6 months ago and it was:

            “Thanks for sharing your experience Christine. Definitely, understand you do not feel like using Streetbees anymore after those experiences. Luckily there are many great alternatives.”

            I am sorry if you felt I was rude by saying this. Maybe I did not express myself clearly – I genuinely appreciated that you were sharing your experiences with me and everyone else as it can really help others make the right decision for them.

            If it came across differently I apologize as that was definitely not my intention.

  6. Don’t read these comments. Streetbees is 100% authentic and works really well xx it may not have worked for others but it has for me and I am from united kingdom northwest.

    • Thanks for sharing your experience Afahshah. Appreciate it. Great to hear you have had good experiences with Streetbees.


  7. Street Bees has owed me some money for a few weeks now. Cons me into doing 5 stories a day for 5 days for $50. My first day I was rapidly declined and then the app gave me an error code since. I reached out to Street Bees and this is what I was told (mind you, many of my friends and family use Street Bees and had the same error msg):

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately our systems have either linked you to more than one account, using VPN or suspicious and illegal activities

    This action violates our Terms and Conditions and for this reason your account was blocked.

    This ban is permanent, therefore we are not able to reinstate your account.

    I am sorry that we will no longer be able to receive more submissions from you.

    Thank you,
    John Bee

    I was in no violation and was not provided any further explanation and had my account closed. Seems once you make a substantial amount of money they close your account without reason. It’s a waste of time honestly and Street Bees is not worth the frustration.

    • Very sorry to hear that Melissa.

      Thanks for sharing with the rest of us. Have not heard about similar experiences with Streetbees before. Definitely sounds frustrating. Hope you find opportunities that will work better for you.


  8. Streetbees Nederland, is running a research about cryptocurrency. Hence, we are looking for people age: 35+ to share their opinions in a short survey.

    If you are willing to contribute to our survey, please download our app.

  9. sometimes approved surveys change to rejected 🙁 after I had been so excited, I ended up not getting paid. Out of 38 surveys 14 were approved then they changed 12 to rejected only leaving 2.

  10. Couple of things that weren’t mentioned. Sometimes you have to complete unpaid surveys to unlock the paid ones. Secondly, they ask a lot of very personal questions so be wary of that.
    It’s a decent app and fairly fun but you’ll only make a few pounds a month out of it. But they do actually pay you and it is not a scam.

    • Do you know how many you have to do to unlock the paid ones? I have tried searching everywhere and cannot find this information

      • Hi Jules,

        I will try to contact Streetbees and see, if I can get an answer for you about whether there is a set number you have to do, or if it depends on the account/country. I will get back yo you as soon as I hear from them.


      • Hi Jules,

        I just checked with Streetbees themselves to be sure how it works worldwide. There is not a set amount of unpaid tasks you need to do to unlock the paid ones. You will see in the app whether a survey is paid or unpaid, but how many unpaid you take will not affect the amount of paid ones. So if you do not see any paid ones, it is likely because there are none available in your area at the moment.

        Hope this helps.


  11. Hi Mikael,

    I have heard of Streetbees from a recent ad lying around the internet and the claims that it promises really seem to be too good to be true.
    After reading your article, I think I’ll give this a miss, as I think there’s way more work required just to earn a little bit of pocket money as you’ve said. 

    I’ve got a question: What’s the best survey site or do you have any recommendations on them?
