Surveytime Review – Worth Your Time or Not? (Full Truth)

Surveytime Rating

Surveytime is one of the fastest paying survey sites. You get $1 for each survey, you can join from all countries, and you get paid instantly once you complete a survey.

Surveytime claims you can use it to get instantly rewarded for completing online surveys.

But is Surveytime a scam or is it really legit and a fast paying survey site?

I have joined and tested it myself, and have also been paid by it.

So let me just reveal right away that it is legit since I know from personal experience it pays. That does, however, not mean it is necessarily worth it for you.

In this Surveytime review, I will show exactly what you get and how it works so you will easily be able to decide if it is a site for you or not.

What is Surveytime and what does the site offer?

Surveytime is a very simple and easy-to-use survey site that offers you to share your opinion through surveys and get paid for this.

It is so simple that it almost confused me when I first joined:-) This might sound strange but there is not much information on the site, so I was even quite suspicious when I first saw it.

I still decided to join, and as already mentioned, it definitely turned out to be a legit site as I have now been paid by it myself several times.

But to know if it will be worth it for you or not, let’s look at exactly what it offers and how it works.

I have created a video that gives you an inside look and show you exactly how to use Surveytime. In the video, I will also show you payment proof so you know it is a site that actually pays. You can also read all the details below the video:

It is, as mentioned, very simple, but this might also confuse you at first. There are some steps you need to take to earn, and I will explain these below.

Step 1 – Register and confirm your email

To get started at Surveytime you, of course, first have to register. You probably already figured that out yourself:-)

The reason I am still mentioning this step here is that the registration process is a bit different from most other survey sites.

It is very easy to join by just giving your email and name.

It is, however, different in the way that you do not have to choose your own password which kind of confused me at first.

After you join, one will automatically be generated for you and send to you via email.

Also, as usually on survey sites, you need to confirm your email. This step is important on Surveytime – without confirming your email, you will not be able to get your rewards out.

So these are the initial steps to join. Still, quite straight forward even though a bit different. What confused me at first was, however, the next step.

Step 2 – Fill out a profile survey

The next step on Surveytime is a bit different from most other survey sites.

Right after you join, you are asked to take a survey to fill out your profile so they can match you with surveys.

survey time intro questions
Right after you join, you have to take a profile survey.

Most survey sites have a profile you can fill out to get a better chance to qualify for surveys so there is nothing unusual in this in itself.

But on Surveytime you have to fill it out before you even get to the members area. This is a bit unusual to be asked to spend 10-15 minutes to do an initial survey before you have even seen what it offers in the members area.

This honestly made me a bit suspicious.

During the profile survey, I was also asked the same questions several times and it made me a bit annoyed and I was not sure what was going on.

The reason for this was, however, probably to check the consistency of my answers to see if I answer surveys honestly. So if you join, make sure to answer honestly so you can give consistent answers.

Luckily it did not take too long to fill out. It says it should take you around 15 minutes but for me it only took around 10 minutes.

I was honestly about to give up during the initial survey because I was a bit confused about what was going on and not sure if it was legit, but I was also curious and had to finish it to see what would happen:-)

I am glad I did. Because even though the initial sign up process confused me a bit, it turned out it had some really good survey options once you are a member.

So make sure to fill out the survey profiler if you join – it will be worth it on the other side:-)

Step 3 – Take surveys

I was very curious to see what Surveytime actually offered on the inside.

It actually turned out to be quite a lot of survey opportunities. When I first joined Surveytime, there was a list of surveys inside the members area. This has, however, changed. Now there are two ways you can get access to surveys here.

One way is to log in to the members area. Here you will then see if there is a survey available for you.

survey scanner on survey time
Inside the members area you find the survey scanner.

It works like a survey scanner. It looks for surveys, and if there are any, you will get the message you can see above. This does not mean you will necessarily qualify for the survey. But if you do not qualify, the scanner will scan for another survey and see if there are other surveys available.

Sometimes it can take some patience to find the surveys you qualify for, but there is a good number of surveys available through the members area. There might even be times when there are none, but then you can check back later.

This is all you can find inside the members area. There is not even a profile where you can edit your password or anything like this. There is just the survey scanner.

There is one more way you can get surveys. Once you have signed up, you will sometimes receive an email with a survey invitation.

surveytime survey invitation
You will also receive survey invitations via email.

You can right away see how long the survey approximately will take and if it is only available on desktop or mobile.

Receiving email invitation like this is very user-friendly, in my opinion. Just make sure to also log in and check for surveys inside the members area as not all surveys will be send via email.

I have seen some people saying they had not received surveys for a while, but it was actually just the emails they had not received. They could still have found surveys by loggin in.

Overall, the way Surveytime is created is very simple and the simplicity makes it very easy to use.

Not just the way you just get available surveys, but also the payout method as we will get to in the next section.

The surveys are taken through third-party providers, so you click a survey and are then taken to another site where you complete the survey.

After you have completed a survey, you will be taken back to Surveytime and can see the reward and decide how you want it.

Personally, Surveytime has worked great for me but I have heard feedback about others sometimes having technical issues with the surveys there – just so you are aware. But I will explain a bit more about this later in this review.

How do you get paid?

The payout method is another area where Surveytime is a bit different from many other sites.

The first thing you need to know is that all surveys give the same reward. Every time you complete a survey, you will get $1.

I have tried to get $1 for a 2-minute survey and also get $1 for a 7-minute survey. There is no differentiation which, of course, makes it very easy to know exactly what you get.

Some surveys will this way have a very high reward compared to other survey sites, while others might have a slightly lower reward. But overall the reward in relation to time spent is very good on Surveytime compared to many other sites.

At the moment of updating this review, Surveytime is also testing giving access to easier surveys for $0.50 but this is something you would have to opt-in for at the moment and it is in the testing phase so it might not even be available for you.

As soon as you have completed a survey, you will be asked how you want to get your reward. The type of reward available depends on your country. But most countries offer PayPal and Bitcoin as options.

survey time reward example
PayPal is one of the payout options in most countries.

Some countries also offer other payout methods. In the US, you can for example also choose to get paid with gift cards to Amazon, Target and Decathlon in addition to PayPal cash.

PayPal as a payout method is used on many survey sites and is, in my opinion, a great way to get your rewards. And how you get your money like this on Surveytime is something I have not seen before.

As you can see in the image above, right after completing a survey, you have to choose how you want your money. I chose to get paid through PayPal.

I then had to verify my phone number. According to Surveytime, this is to protect your rewards and they will never use your number for anything else.

It was only for the first payout I had to confirm the phone number by using a code I received in a text message, so not a problem at all. And I have also not experienced the number has been shared or anything like this as it sometimes happens on the shady survey sites.

Anyway, it took less than 1 minute and once that was done and I chose PayPal, I received an email just a few minutes later that said I had now received my reward.

surveytime payment proof
I received my payment only a few minutes after completing my first survey.

There are other survey sites where you can get your rewards already when you have earned $1 and get them super fast.

But it is the first time I have seen it like this where you right away get the money transferred and do not actively choose when you want a payout.

I think this has both advantages and disadvantages.

The advantage is that you will get your money right away. I like quick paying survey sites compared to the sites where you sometimes have to wait for weeks to have the survey confirmed before you can get your reward.

However, I also like being able to decide myself when I want the payout. I think it can be nice to collect a bit of money in the survey site account and then get them paid out at once.

But overall, I think it is great with such a quick payout and it is one of the fastest I have seen, but if you prefer being able to wait and gather money in your account before you get a payout, then Surveytime is not for you.

How much money can you make?

There is, in theory, no limit to how many surveys you can complete on Surveytime as long as there are available surveys.

But there are, of course, not unlimited surveys available.

How many that will be available depends on a lot on the country you live in. But in my experience, it has a decent amount available and it also has surveys available in countries where it usually can be difficult to find any.

So it is definitely a way to make some extra cash on the side. But it will, as all other paid survey sites, not be a way to make a full-time income online and not something that will make you rich.

But Surveytime can be a nice way to get to share your opinion and earn some nice extra cash at the same time.

Can you use it on mobile?

mobile with surveytime website is fully mobile optimized and the website itself works well on mobile. But it does not have a Surveytime app.

So if you want to earn by taking surveys on the go, this is possible with Surveytime by going through the website or by clicking the invitation link in the emails you get.

Just be aware that since the surveys will be taken on websites of different providers, it is not sure all of them will be fully optimized for mobile.

Most of them definitely will be possible to take on mobile, but just be aware that there can also be surveys where it takes a bit a scrolling in and out.

The great thing about the survey invitations you get via email is that it here is clearly stated if it is only available for desktop or only for mobile. If nothign is stated, you can take them on all devices.

Who can join Surveytime?

Something I really like about Surveytime is that it is available worldwide.

There will, however, be different amounts of available surveys from country to country. But any country can join and it offers good opportunities even for countries where it usually can be more difficult to find survey opportunities.

The platform is also available in different languages. At the top of the screen, you can choose the language.

surveytime language options
Surveytime is available in all countries and in several languages.

At the moment of writing this review, it is available in English, Russian, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Chinese.

But many of the surveys will actually be in your own local language even if one of these languages is not your mother tongue.

Can you get support?

One thing that is a bit strange about Surveytime is that I could, at first, not find info contact info for their support on the website.

There is an FAQ section where you can get answers for most questions, but there is no contact info.

I, however, managed to find an email address to their support in their privacy policy. But I checked up on this directly with Surveytime, and it turns out that was not the best way to reach their support. I was told by them that the best way to contact support directly is by writing to:

However, you can also try to reach them through their Facebook page.

After initially posting this review I have, however, been told by many readers that they have not been able to get in contact with Surveytime and often it will took several messages to get in contacnt with them.

I have been able to get in contact with their support several times myself and have been told that they are working on improving the support. And after some of the negative feedback was posted on my review (see comments below the review), Surveytime actually answered many of them here on this review as you can see.

However, it seems the support is kind of on and off – sometimes they are very quick at replying and other times there is silence for quite a long time. This is not only based on my own experience but also based on the feedback I get from visitors on this website.

So it can take some patience to get in contact with their support and other times you might be lucky and get a fast reply. Personally, I hope this is something that will become more stable soon as it is not ideal as it is now.

Surveytime complaints

After initially posting my Surveytime review, I have received a lot of feedback from people that have tried it. Some people love it and get really good results, but others also have problems with it.

I have heard several people mentioning that they complete a survey but sometimes then get an error and there are problems with the payment. That can happen at times but it seems like it regularly happens on Surveytime in some countries from the feedback I get.

Another complaint I hear is about then not being able to get a quick answer from the support when there are technical issues – becasue technical issues can happen on any site but the important thing is then how fast the support is at fixing this. But I have already gone into details about this above.

I want to make it clear that I have not had any problems with Surveytime myself and I have also received feedback from people that love the site and do very well on it.

But I also have to recognize that is not the experience of everyone and therefore wanted to add this section here so you get a more wholesome picture of what the site offers and the potential good and bad sides before deciding if it is for you or not.

Final verdict

Surveytime is a legit and simple survey site that pays out quickly.

This does not necessarily mean it is the best site for you. So let’s finish by summing up the pros and cons so you can get a better overview to help you decide whether you should join or not.



  • Free to join
  • Available worldwide
  • Pays out very quickly
  • Usually daily opportunities
  • Very easy to use


  • You cannot decide when you want a payout yourself
  • Sometimes support can be a bit slow
  • There has been some complaints about technical issues at times

Overall, I think Surveytime is very user-friendly once you get used to how it works differently from most other survey sites.

If it is the right platform for you depends on a lot of the preferences you have in relation to payout methods.

If you like getting your rewards right away, then Surveytime gives some pretty good rewards for short surveys and you get your money right away.

If you prefer gathering more earnings in your account before cashing out, you should consider other survey sites instead.

One thing you just have to be aware of is that is you should run into problems on the site, the support is not the fastest. I have not had any problems myself and have been paid out without problems. But if you should run into issues, you sometimes have to be a bit patient with their support.

How to join Surveytime?

Surveytime is very easy to join. You just click the button below and will be taken to the sign-up page.

Remember to take the first initial survey profiler right after signing up to be able to get access to the surveys. Then you will be able to start earning right away.

I hope this review has helped you to see exactly what Surveytime offers and find out if it is a platform for you or not.

  1. I have been doing work on Surveytime for a couple of weeks now. Yes, their payments are prompt. But I should confess that some surveys have gone without making the payment. I have written to, but there has been no response. Surveys that are allocated to me get disconnected saying that I was not a good match.
    I need a clarification: At the time of becoming a member I fill up profile details. At that point of time I am unemployed, but subsequently have obtained a part-time job. That means the earlier surveys screening will show that I am unemployed. Later on in the other surveys I mention I am employed part-time. Can this be the reason for disqualification. How can I change my details in the original profile. The same applies to my vehicle also and member in the family.

    • There can be many reasons for not qualifying for a survey. It happens to everyone. It is just simply because they were looking for someone with a different kind of profile.

      Unfortunately, Surveytime does not make it easy to change your profile. You need to get in contact with their support about this.

      They can be a bit slow at responding but give it a few days more and if you have not heard back from them, then try contacting them again.

      Let me know how it goes.

  2. Hlo sir please help me. I have earned $5 in last 5 days but today i have been facing a problem. Whenever i click on survey it redirects to me another website and after 2-3 seconds, without asking me anything ,it again redirects me back to surveytime website. It happened 3-4 times today. Please tell me …. Does it mean that there is some problem with my account?? Or it is just normal disqualification. I am very tensed about it because i have found this type of survey panel first time that pays instantly.

      • Sir you have stated above the contact support email that we can use to contact them but today i checked their privacy policy section of and i get another support email id there and this was that email id:-

        I am mailing you with the screenshot where i found this contact support email id. You may update this in your above article(if want)

        • Thank you – but I am aware their privacy policy gives another email. But I have checked directly with them to double-check and the email in this review is the one they gave me to share with people on my website so they can get in contact with them.

          • Hey, i have been unable to post a comment on univox community review. So i am giving that comment here. I want to give an update that payment threshold at univox community is $10 in INDIA as i have received $16.33 that i requested 2 days back. I also want to thank you because you gave me hope when i was thinking that univox community do not pay. You were right. They really pay and even in 2 days. I really want to thank you sir. I earned $17.5 from surveytime, $16.33 from univox, $9 from lifepoints panel and $12.50 from timebucks and these all are only because of your guidance. Thanks😊

          • That is some really great results.

            And you did leave comments on the Univox review but I just need to approve any comment before they are visible to avoid people posting spam. Your comments have now been approved there.

            Thanks for sharing.

          • Yes they were posted but when i clicked on post comment, the website was broken. It shows that we cannot handle this request. So i thought that my comments has not been posted.

          • sounds strange. Maybe it was a temporary technical error on my website. Anyway, they did go through and I have replied to them now.

  3. I have been taking surveytime for more than a month and I have also earned a few dollars. But a few days ago I accidentally filled in the wrong answer because I didn’t read the questions thoroughly. Since then if I get an invitation, I always get disqualified and I haven’t earned a penny. Will I not be able to get any more money?

    • You should still get chances again. But you will just not always qualify. If you keep having these problems, try contacting their support and explain your situation.

        • you will have to keep trying to reach their support to delete your account. I know they are right now working and improving support. So hopefully you will get an answer if you try again.

          Let me know how it goes.

  4. Hi sir, first of all thank you for everything you taught us about surveys.Earlier i was only earning 0.20 or 0.15 $ per day but after reading your reviews, i earned 1$ continuously for 2 days.But on third day, i failed to qualify for 2-3 surveys….Please tell me( will disqualification from 3-4 surveys have any affect on frequency of upvoming surveys on my account???)…..or i will get normal frequecy just as now.

    And one more important thing. I mostly fails to qualify in survey like i failed to qualify 8 surveys out of 10……but qualify only 2…….Can you tell me any secret or any trick to get qualified in each survey….It occured to me on many other sites too….Please help me to get qualified in surveys.
    Ekjot Singh,

      • Today i earned 3$ with the surveys of 10-10 minutes each and it was possible just because of you.Thanks dude!!

        Please tell me about YouGov.I am from India and i am using yougov from atleast 3 months but i am still moving at 600-700 points. Please suggest me (may i continue with it ? Or it is only a waste of time?)
        I have read many comments about yougov from indiam users and all are saying that they are using yougov from 3 years and still moving at 3500 points [quite far away from 5000(needed for redemption)].

      • Hi, Sir Mikael !! Today i am receiving an issue. Please please help me. Till yesterday everything was normal. I earned 2$ yesterday but today i have been facing a problem. Whenever i click on survey, it redirects me to the survey website but after 2-3 seconds, it ridirects me back to surveytime website. It happened to me 3-4 times today. Please tell me ….does it mean that there is some problem with my account or it is a normal disqualification. I am.getting normal invitation emails but when i click on survey they redirects me back to surveytime website without asking any question. I am very worried about it because i found this type of website for the first time (that pays instantly) with your help only. Please clear my worries about it. I am worrying that i might have made some mistake in previous surveys and because of that they are not accepting me in surveys now.😞

  5. The site is cool, I just fell in love with it, but I could not earn a single dollar. With every poll I get a message: “It looks like we don’t have any new polls for you at this time. We do our best to save you time and find only the most suitable surveys for you, so sometimes we have nothing new to offer “you”

    • Surveytime will not always have surveys available. But you will find some eventually – how many that are available depends on your profile and country.

  6. I’m trying to redeem my payment from a completed survey and the mode of payment option had received to display.

    I went through the ambassador channel to the payment section to see and change my mode of payment option.
    But there’s no provision for editing same.

    What do I do?

        • they do not as such have a support section. But in the review above, I show which email you have to write to reach their support.

          • Hi Mikael
            I have completed 2 surveys yesterday successful and selected paypal option to cashout but I did not receive anything .it was fine till day before yesterday .is it a glitch ? I’m able to login I don’t think that I got banned ,I’m not sure what’s going on with the account .I’m sure they don’t respond back if I contact support also .

          • sounds like a technical error. The only thing you can do is to contact their support – but it can take some patience to get through to them and you might have to write them several times. But that is, unfortunately, all you can do.

  7. I tried adding my mobile number but it keeps telling me that the number is not mobile.What should I do…looking forward to hearing from you soon

      • I have two pending payout for the two surveys I have successfully completed, $1 each

        Aug 17-survey about Parcel delivery Service-$1
        Aug 19-(today) survey about Sound system and speakers-$1

        Nothing arrived in my Paypal account. I emailed them but I got no reply.
        please help me Mikael. Please.
        I am confident that you will help me about this. They may countercheck on their database that I actually finished these two surveys and not yet paid.

        usually the payments are sent immediately but not in this last two surveys

        • sorry to hear that.

          But I can, unfortunately, not do anything. You need to get in contact with their support. Their support is quite slow so it can take some patience and you probably have to write them several times.

          Hope you get your earnings soon. Let me know how it goes.

        • I know they are right now working on hiring more support staff to speed it up. But if you have not heard from them yet, you should definitely write them again. In general, if you have then not heard anything after 1 week, just write them again.

  8. Hii i am from india. i am created account on,5 to 6 months ago when i create account that time i do only 4 to 5 surveys only and get reward but last 3 months no any survey available on my account.I send email to,and inform about my problem but there is no any reply.So help me for solving this problem.

    • Sometimes there are just no surveys. But it could be a technical problem. The only way to fix that is to contact their support. It is often quite slow so you will likely have to write several times and be a bit patient. Let me know how it goes.

  9. Hi Mikael.
    So my concern is, I have received up to 4 invitations to participate in a survey. However whenever I start up the survey by inputing my phone number.
    The next page comes with 4 boxes asking for verification code.
    And I usually fix in my date of birth.
    And when ever I do that. I get a feed back of my survey was unsuccessful.

    I don’t know what the verification code is or if that’s the reason I don’t succeed with any survey

    • The verification code is one you should receive on your phone. If you do not receive this, you need to contact their support.

        • in the review above there is a section about support. Here you can find the email you need to write to reach their support.

        • Complete2 survey and was told i could not be paid. I will like to no why and how can i remove y’all from sending me email since i can not be paid?

          • you need to contact Surveytime’s support about this. You can see an email for their support in the review above.

        • In most countries, you will get paid via PayPal. In some countries, you also have other options.

          But if you registered with a different email than your PayPal email, you can go to PayPal and connect this other email as well and still get paid.

  10. Thanks Mikael. Does surveytime always ask for phone number verification before each surveys? After entering my phone number i don’t usually receive any verification code on my phone. And i have been missing out on surveys. P.S I am a Nigerian.

    • They only ask for phone verification the first time. If you have problems with the verification, you need to contact their support. You might just need to contact the support a few times as they are not always fast at replying.

  11. Hey Mikael thank you for review on survey time but i have a question.I recently registered to surveytime (i am from greece) and they did not ask me to verify my phone number or my paypal account do you know if my location causes the problem and if that can you sugest any other survey paid site for greece? Thank you!

  12. Hello mikael,

    Thanks for providing us with the information with your page. Anyway, for the last few days i always failed in answering surveys, it said, that i answer the survey too fast and its affect the survey quality. The problem is i answer the survey with same speed as before. I do not know what happen, do you have any information on this matter mikael? Thanks

    • I cannot say why that is suddenly happening. There might be a technical error – try contacting their support and ask for help. Let me know how it goes.

      • Hello Mikael,

        So i was contacting them, after few days i have no longer accept message that told me i was in hurry answer the surveys lol, but many times i wasn’t fit with the surveys. Well, hope things gonna back to normal again soon .

  13. First of all thank you for just being so patient and helping, and existing. You can understand that I have also had some bad experiences with them. I am from India and have been using it since last 5-6 months besides being a post grad student. Since lockdown i have been spending more time o grabpoints, surveytime and paidera. Grabpoints support system is very good and I just love it. On their survey wall only i found surveytime. But although did not get paid. I have contacted Paypal too and they have said to ask surveytime to contact them for the issue because I only receive the mail that surveytime wants to send 0.010$ for verification and after even 10-12 days no more update on payment. Paypal help is also good, they have confirmed that my account is ready to receive payment. I have written to Tommy as well but the same, no response experience. Had read some of the comments here and found I am not the only one. But the issue persists and remain unsolved. Regd Paidera do you have any valuable comment or suggestion. In the first few days my experience with paidera was good, it paid me more than what I have earned in grabpoints in these 5-6 months, while I have joined paidera recently. But after that they just ask (25/50/100 etc)referrals to participate and that becomes impossible. Also hardly I get any survey there now that is good for time and money. Can you suggest good, legit and suitable online income for India? Also how to solve these survey issues on multiple sites. Feels like once I ran out of surveys on one site, other sites also become same

    • Hi Trisha,

      About Surveytime then you often have to write their support several times to get an answer so if you have not heard back from them after a few days try writing again.

      I have a review of Paidera you can read – but in short, I would advise you to stay away from it. I assume you have not actually managed to get paid from Paidera? Because on of the big issues with the site is that they constantly keep making more and more demands for you to get your money and most people will never be able to get them, in my experience.

      As for good sites for India, you can check out this list of the best sites in India – there are plenty of good options there.

      Hope this helps.

      • Thank you!
        Yes paidera I don’t think i would be able to manage the payout because their threshold is too high(30$). I would surely check links provided by you.
        I have written 5-6 times to Surveytime after reading most of your responses to the comments here, today also i completed a survey 0.5$ but at the end of survey it said “unfortunately you were unable to complete”, after spending nearly half an hour. Just after I have linked my verified Paypal, no money I received. Earlier I would receive 1000 coins immediately.

        • sorry to hear that but thanks for the update. Surveytime, unfortunately, has a pretty slow support. I know they are working on improving this but seems it is still not very efficient. I really hope they will improve this soon.

          • Every time you have completed a survey, you will get to choose your payout methods. But in some countries, there will only be one option and then there is nothing you can do to change this.

        • Trisha , you will get that message of unfortunately you are not qualified once in a while when the survey quota is filled up.I have experienced the same .There are many glitches on site lately I’m getting you are rush message once in a while though I’m completing it with normal speed.
          Mikael I want to ask you that are you getting 1$ for every survey or 0.50 cents ?. Nowadays I’m only getting 0.50 for the most of the surveys.

          • I usually get $1 – but if there are no $1 surveys available they have started to offer some other surveys. But you are always told before you start how much you will get.

        • hey dear ,in short would like to say that paidera is just a scam ,i spent my 3 week doing more and more refferals bit they change there demand as we reach close so plz avoid this this and mikael plz suggest only a single site for indian which which definiatelty fruitfull for us because we spent lots of time due to less of guidance

          • Thanks for sharing Mohit – Paidera definitely uses sneaky tricks.

            I would, in general, suggest you join more than one site to get enough options. You can check out my list of the best sites in India here.

            All of these are legit and you can get a quick overview of what each of them offers and then choose the ones that sound like the best fit for you.

  14. Hi Mikael,

    i am a new user, however, the default language is arabic? how could i change this to english, it was difficult for me to fill the profile.

      • Hi! They always ask for my mobile number to send verification every time there is a survey. When i out in the my number, there is no verification code received. It is always like that so i thought it is a scam, what could be the reason. I am from the philippines.

        • There are many people that have problems with the phone verification. I have asked Surveytime about this and they say they are working on making it better but it apparently takes quite some time. In the meantime, you need to contact their support and then they can help you.

          Let me know how it goes.

          • usually, you just need to verify with a code they will send to your phone. But if they ask you to answer the call, then that is what you have to do. You cannot use a fake number for verification if that is what you are wondering.

        • Hi! May i ask if you did already get the reward 1$? I’ve been trying to answer several surveys but it still not successfully completed. Is it normal? I am from the Philippines too.

          This question is intended for Sir Mikael too..

          • You will not be able to qualify for all surveys and depending on your profile it can sometimes take some patience to find the surveys you qualify for. That is very normal.

  15. hello mikael,

    Since march iam joining survey time without any problem, today my paymen was decline , i still dont know whats going on, tommy said, my account not meet their term and service. Iam sending tommy an email, still waiting for their response. Do you ever experienced this case mikael? thank u

    • No, I have not had problems like that. have you used a VPN? because I know they will block you for this.

      But hope you will get an answer from them soon. Keep me updated.

      • Hello mikael,

        No, i haven’t use vpn. There’s still no response from tommy and i also dont get any survey invitation too. Wondering if this related. If you have knowledge in this matter please let me know. Thanks mikael

        • if your account does not live up to their terms, you will also not receive invitations to surveys. Did you write their support for further explanation?

          • Hi Mikael

            I am getting survey invitations since yesterday after two months gap.i was paid fine yesterday ,but there is some issues with payment .They have sent mail saying that they are experiencing technical issues with integration with PayPal, which is causing delays in payouts. Are you facing the same problem ? Or is it fine to you ?.Let me know.

          • Many people have experienced that problem. They are working on fixing it as far as I am aware. So just give it a couple of days and then contact their support if nothing has happened. And let me know how it goes.

      • Hello mikael,

        So today i’ve got response from tommy, he said there’s a problem related to PayPal integration system, therefore they’ve had experienced trouble in paying out people. And i had my payment too . Things become normal again, i have surveys invitations also today.

      • Hello mikael,

        Just wanna updating, seems the payment takes time now. Its no longer directly payment after u finished the survey. On may 19th i finished one survey and i ‘ve got my payment on 22nd, and last nite i finished one survey and still not get any payment too. Did u experience that too mikael?

      • Surveytime is not a scam – I have been paid by it many times myself. Calling something a scam because the phone verification does not work does not really make sense.

        They have had some technical issues with their mobile verification and it definitely has taken too long to fix. But if you write their support and let them know about it, they will be able to help you. Just be aware that sometimes you need to contact their support a few times to get an answer as they are not always fast at responding.

    • They offer both surveys for mobile and desktop so as a member you will receive emails about both and can then choose which ones you want to take.

  16. Hello, I signed up a few days ago, Tommy always send me new surveys worth 0.5$, they are always asking for my phone no. for verification code, yet I did not receive any. Was there a problem in the site? This always happened to me I thought its because of the internet, I keep refreshing and then it appears that I did not continue my survey even though I haven’t started yet.

    • I have heard from many that there seem to be some problems with the phone verification. According to Surveytime itself, they are working on making this easier and better. But for now, if you have problems, you need to contact their support and ask for help to fix this.

      • hy ,today i did a survey up to the end,,even they sent me a message ,congratulation for participating, survey is complete thank short while waiting a reward another was received wooh ,sorry unfortunately no payment
        u did not you did not complete the survey..i am asking why this happened yet did it up to the last point..

          • Hello sir, may I ask your opinion about my problem? I’ve already finished 2 surveys in that site and received email from tommy saying they need to verify my account first before I can get the payment and it says that it will only take 48hrs but it’s already 2 days and I haven’t receive the payment yet. Should I contact the support already? btw I know that I’ve already verified my account, I don’t know what happened, on my first account it works well but this time, in my another account, I encounter that problem. TIA for the answer

          • From what you are saying, I am pretty sure what the problem is. It sounds like you have two accounts with Surveytime? You are, of course, not allowed to have several accounts and take the same surveys several times.

            That is seen as fraud and will get you banned.

            So if it is because you have several personal accounts, you should not expect to get your earnings. You are only allowed to create one account on all survey sites. If people created more accounts and answered the same surveys, it would defeat the purpose and not be valuable research from them.

  17. I’m 16 years old from the Philippines, am I qualified to join surveytime? Also, is it okay if I use my mother’s paypal account since I don’t have my own paypal?

      • I think it’s a scam!I have been nothing but truthful and keeps getting turned down,. I haven’t received one paying survey.or qualified for one ! I give up ! I never had so much turn downs or disqualifactions in my life ! And feel they now have personal access to my personal life

        • I have been paid by Surveytime many times. But it definitely can take some patience to find the surveys you qualify for. And because of the lockdown in most countries, there are right now fewer surveys on survey sites in general and more people taking them so they fill up faster.

          Which country do you live in? Because that might also have something to do with it.

    • Yes Czar, you can use your mother’s PayPal account. My dad doesn’t have one & he uses my PayPal account & he received 1$ as payment for his first completed Survey. Just make sure that if someone else from your household too uses Surveytime (let’s say your mother) then you need to have a different contact number for verification as you cannot use your mother’s mobile number.

      As for Age, if I’m not wrong anyone under the age of 13 is prohibited. You can check their FAQ section or just go through Terms & services.

    • you receive the survey invitations via email so make sure to check your email. If you have any technical issues, you need to contact their support.

  18. Hi Mikael,
    You seem to be very active in answering people’s queries. I just learned about this site and I want to give it a try due to our current situation. So I am just hoping that it would turn out so well, and might give you a feedback. On the other hand, if I might encounter some issues, I might also get back to you to ask for help.

    Anyways, thank you much and keep safe!

  19. Hello mikael, I completed 1 survey but after the website page was returned to the surveytime menu, I did not find any payment options there. As if the survey just finished without getting paid, I should get my $ 1. I have sent many messages to contact support. But did not receive a reply. Why did this happen? Please help:)

    • Sounds like a technical error. Their support is not always fast at responding so the best you can do is to just write them again if you have not heard back after a couple of days. And in the meantime then use other survey sites. If you would like a few suggestions for other great sites, just let me know which country you live in.

    • Hey Lalalo! Same thing happened with me as well. I even wrote an email to Tommy but got no reply. But since I have enabled for email & browser notifications, I get emails from Tommy incase there is a new survey available. Not only that for the past few days, either I’m not getting a survey or if I get one, they ask me questions & redirect me to survey(ask me another set of questions & waste my time) & then in the end says “Unfortunately you don’t have any Surveys available.” Normally this whole process takes around 20-30 mins without giving me an actual survey. By the way I’m from India. May I know which country you are from?

      • If you have not heard back after you send the email to their support, make sure to write again. Unfortunately, their support is often very slow but it usually helps if you keep writing once in a while.

  20. hi its good you have talked about the survey time initially i am member since 5 months ago ,up to now they have never given me any single survey ,or neither earned any single penny with them.once i log inn..just show me ,,we have no survey for you..generally i am a kenyan but now works in bahrain i wonder why they approved my account and not giving me surveys please i need help and many more sites

    • Not being able to find available surveys will happen to everyone at times. Why you do not get any at all, I cannot answer. It all depends on your demographic profile and the respondents that are looking for.

      So the best is to join more sites and if you cannot find any on one site, you will be able to find some on another. But Bahrain and Kenya are not the countries where you, in general, will find the most surveys. So be aware that many of the sites also offer other small tasks you can do to earn a bit extra.

  21. Hey Mikael! I had a query regarding Surveytime. My mom has an account on Surveytime. She generally gets 0.5$ surveys & even the payment is instant. I want to ask is it possible for me to make an account on this site. We are currently in the same house & have the same ISP(so the IP address would be same). Or would it cause problems(considering that we have the same physical address) & thus leading to suspension of my mom’s account? I’m from India by the way.

    • Yes, you are both allowed to sign up. I have recently asked about this.

      But you need each your phone to verify your account when you are asked to do this – you cannot use the same phone number. But it is ok to join from the same IP address.

      • Ok. Thanks for replying. 1 more thing. After getting almost 3$ in the first 1.5 days, my mom gets hardly any survey. In my case, it is even worse. I just got 1 survey today(I have joined on 17th April) & didn’t qualify for it. My friends also said the same that they are just not getting any more Surveys. Is there some issue with the site currently? I wanted to ask are you getting similar complaints? What about you? Have you faced any such issue?

        • Surveys come and go and there are sometimes just days without any surveys available. But if you do not receive them via email you can also go to the platform and login and check there.

          In general, there is a bit fewer surveys available at the moment because of many companies being closed due to lockdown. But there still are a decent number of surveys available.

  22. A Survey was well received and successfully completed by me, However, I couldnt receive or rather wasn’t able to claim my reward because of an error that ‘there is an issue with your number, please try again after 24Hrs”
    Someone please check and help.

    • You need to contact their support about this – you can see the email for the support in the review above. Let me know how it goes.

  23. Everything was always fine with Survey Time: quite a lot of surveys, no technical issues and prompt payments but …

    I sent an email to in February 2020 asking them to delete my account and personal information in their database as per the EU GDPR regulation: no answer.

    As of today (April 8, 2020) the account is still active.
    I’m going to report Survey Time to the European Data Protection Supervisor in the next few days and let them know that my data is being mishandled if Survey Time is not replying me quickly.

  24. Hello, i am from Kenya. I’ve been trying to add my phone number but every time i try am told that the number is incorrect. like what format am i supposed to use to write the number for it to be accepted

    • There seems to be some problems with their phone verification sometimes. But I have been told they are working on fixing this. So the best you can do is to contact their support and make them aware. And you might have to write a few times with a few days in between to get an answer – that is sometimes the case.

    • Sad to say that I no longer received surveys from them.

      Previously I used to received surveys almost daily but now no more.

      • The number of surveys goes up and down from time to time. I still receive from them more or less every day. Hopefully, you will soon get more surveys again.

  25. I have completed two surveys, but once again surveytime sent me an email that my surveytime request was rejected, I should have been able to get $ 2, for this problem that never happened before, surveytime always pays quickly. Please help:)

      • Hello

        As many people are facing issues with payments and account ban problem , could you include all our questions behalf all members here .As the support is too delay and as you only got reply from them I am asking this help.I have send emails to them many times .
        please kindly help us by writing our problems to them .Thanks .

        • I have made them aware of the problems many visitors on my website are facing. And I regularly send them mails to make aware of this and hope they will improve their response time and support soon. It is mostly also not easy for me to get answers. But I do what I can.

          • Hello mikael

            New update from me I got paid today pending payments from them .Thanks for being supportive for the visitors here by discussing our issues with them.

          • Hello Mikael,

            Can you please notify them about the phone number verification issue, I have tried many times to receive my verification code from them, and they keep sending me surveys to take part on. I have send them email about the issue, but there was no response

          • I have notified them about this Muna. I was told that they are working on a better solution but that is, unfortunately, all I know for now. All I can suggest is to keep writing their support once in a while – and make sure you use the email address for their support I have shown here above in the review.

          • The verification process is meant to take 48 hour it has been 3 days and I still havnt received the money.

          • You need to then contact their support – sometimes the support takes a bit of time to get back to you so if that is the case just write them once in a while until you get an answer. Let me know how it goes.

        • I finished a survey, and every time i try to get the money they say that my paypal email is incorrect, BUT ITS NOT! tried to contact then but no answer. 🙁

          • Unfortunately, their support is not also very responsive. So in my experience, the best to do is to keep writing them once in a while and then they usually do answer at some point. And until then just keep using other survey sites.

            Hope this helps and keep me updated about how it goes.

          • Hello mikael,

            I think the website has some glitches again .I’m not able get any survey invitations from past one week .I’m not sure is it happening only to me .I am able to login but can’t find out any surveys .Did they block me or everyone facing the same issue ? I’m not sure .Are you getting invitations mikael?.

          • I am still getting invitations more or less every day. It can just be that they do not have a lot of surveys in your country at the moment.

            And if you can log in they did not block you – then it is probably just simply because they do not have any available surveys for you at the moment.

          • I used to get surveys a lot from them but for the last 3 months I haven’t received 1 it just says the algorithm could not find me 1, I don’t understand how I went from getting about 3 a day to nothing in3 months

          • Many sites have a slightly lower need for respondents at the moment as many companies worldwide are closed due to the lockdown. And at the same time, more people are online which means the surveys fill up quicker. So this might be the reason.

            But that is why it is a good idea to join several sites so you get access to more options and also make sure to use some of the other earning methods many of the sites offer.

          • In every mail you get from Surveytime you can find a link to unsubscribe at the bottom of it. So just use that to stop your membership.

      • Hello Mikael,

        I ve got same payment problem today. But i already sent email to ask about the problem. Joining for a month and already got payment few times without problem. This is first time i didn’t receive my payment. Hope hear from them soon.

        • Hope you will get an answer soon June. Sometimes the support can be a bit slow so if you have not heard back from them within a few days try writing them again. Keep me updated about how it goes.

          • Hello mikael,

            I forgot to comment back, they immediately taking care of my trouble, in an hour or so, i’ve got my payment. I think they really working on their system .

        • Hello Mikael

          I have seen few reviews from Indian users ,they are still getting invitations but since 2 weeks I didn’t get any thing as I can login .I will contact them but sure they don’t reply to me like they reply to you. surveytime is from offerwall on gpt website’s and in that also I’m not getting any surveys .
          I will get back to you if they reply me .

          • Unfortunately, their support is not always very responsive. It often takes quite a few emails to get an answer. Let me know when they get back to you.

    • I have been happy with surveytime up until 2 day’s ago I had completed a survey on insurance companies from JD power associates and when I was redirected to surveytime it said “unfortunately you did not qualify for survey” and ever since then I will be anywhere between 2-5 minutes into answering a question and it will go back to surveytime saying that I did not qualify for survey even though I was already halfway through a survey it’s not just one’s I actually don’t qualify for but it’s happening to surveys I do qualify for (the site where you are redirected to, to start the survey usually has its own questions you have to answer once you are qualified you go into the survey) I did send a email addresseing my issue on not being credited for the survey that I did complete, after I had received a message on the JD power associates survey site saying “thank you for taking the time to complete the survey” I was redirected back to surveytime saying that I did not qualify and I haven’t gotten any response yet. I’m going to keep trying to contact Tommy to get my credit but also address the issues with getting redirected back to surveytime in the middle of taking a survey after qualifying and I get the unfortunately you did not qualify. I’m happy to have found this page when I was searching for other ways to get in contact with surveytime I came across your review and I have got a lot of questions I had as well as the issues and just wanted to say thank you for the time you take to go in-depth to give a honest reviews, opinions, suggestions, and answers.

      • Thanks for sharing these experiences Krista.

        Unfortunately, Surveytime’s support is not always fast at getting back to you, so the best is to just keep writing them once in a while. Usually, they will get back to you at some point.

        And let me know how it goes.

        • I have been unable to choose PayPal as my payment method and all I have is coinbase. I don’t know how to deal in Bitcoin and I honestly don’t know how to cash out via coinbase because the reviews of the website is very bad. I feel like I’ve been giving my time for nothing.

  26. There are times I tried to do a survey, and before proceeding, it asked me a code which, it said, was sent to my mobile phone. After waiting, 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, no code comes to my phone. How’s that?

    Thank you very much.

    • I have heard several people having problems with the phone verification. I asked them about this and got an answer just a few days ago. They are saying that they are working on improving the phone verification to make it work better. That is all I can say for now.

      But if you have problems with it, write their support, and then they can hopefully sort it out for you.

      • Hello,

        Did you get an answer from them? I am still waiting for their support for not getting paid after completion of a survey.I can still access my account though.Can you give me their correct support address So that I can contact them again .

        • Yes, I did get an answer from them. Everything should be working. So if you still have not heard back from them, it is better to just keep writing. You can see the email for their support in the review about in the “Can you get support” section.

        • Ive done acouple of surveys with survey time it took me about six months to get my phone number verified apart from that I’ve done the survey and then it says wait for the email to come through my email says that my order has been rejected so I can’t get paid I chose $1 Amazon voucher I don’t know if that’s got anything to do with it because I’m in the UK but it’s the second time that I’ve had this happened please help

          • You need to contact Surveytime’s support. They are the only ones that can help with something like this. It can sometimes take some patience to hear back from them, so until you hear back, I would also advise you to just use other sites. There are plenty of great options in the UK. Just let me know if you want suggestions for a few great alternatives while you wait to hear back from Surveytime.

  27. Its been 12 days since a single survey, tried contacting them but as usual they haven’t replied to any of my 3 mails, just want to know have they closed their surveys for Indians, are other Indians getting surveys since past 2 weeks? they just don’t reply ever, can’t predict whats the problem

    • I am trying to get through to their support now to see if there are any updates. I am still getting surveys myself but I am also not located in India. But as far as I know, it should still be working but I am checking up on it to get an answer.

  28. Seems you haven’t updated this yet, not all surveys pay 1$ anymore, now there are surveys worth 0.50 as well since the start of the new year, lot of surveys which were paying 1$ will now be paying only 0.5 which isn’t really good, also haven’t got a single survey since past 4 days, don’t know what happened, any update

    • Thanks for making me aware of this. I will update the review with info about this asap.

      About you not having received surveys for some days that can just sometimes happens. I have not heard there should be anything particular going on.

      • It hasn’t happen since i’ve joined survey time in last 5 months when i didn’t get even a single survey to click on for 5 days, bit strange, maybe owner is on a holiday or some other technical problems i guess

        • Thanks for sharing this. Hope you will soon start receiving surveys again and I will also keep an eye on it and see if I notice anything.

          • I think surveytime is officially dead, even my friend has confirmed he ain’t getting any surveys at all from days, its been 8 days now without a single survey, is there any other website exactly like survey time? not talking of other survey sites, i’m active on other survey sites but survey time was unique

          • It still seems to be working fine for me.
            But I do not know any sites exactly like Surveytime. There are many other great sites but not that works exactly the same.

          • I have been working on surveytime from few months received many payments without a problem But from last week I’m not able to get payments even after completing a survey successfully. It is saying that my account violated their terms and conditions .I have read reviews on other sites that few members also experienced same .I have contacted the support till now didn’t get any response from them .It will be great drawback for a any survey website when it doesn’t give proper support to it’s members. I need a explanation for not getting paid .

          • I definitely agree it is a big drawback when a survey site does not provide proper feedback. I am right now trying to get in contact with them to get an update about some of the experiences people have shared here on my website over the last few weeks. Hope we will both hear back from them soon.

  29. This survey site wont pay anything but makes you to feel that they will transfer amount to paypal. I had finished three surveys but not got a single penny. After completion of survey they tell they will send an email for transfer to paypal, but this will not happen, don’t waste your time please

    • Have you contacted their support? Because as you can see in the video above, I have been paid by it several times. But I have heard that there sometimes are problems with certain accounts from others so you need to contact their support to get this fixed. Hope they will sort it out for you soon.

    • i was about to payout my reward and click to paypal, then prompted to enter the verification code to be sent or by call, yet it was on a voice call in arabic, and no support could assist me when i requested it in english they didnt even sent the verification code by mail or SMS..

      • sorry to hear that. The only thing you can do is to then write their support and keep writing them until you get an answer. And in the meantime use other sites.

  30. I’m confused. I haven’t received surveys from surveytime in a while. Why is that? Why it is so hard to qualify for a survey..

  31. I actually got second payment from SurveyTime. I believe them. But.. It is a slow process.. I wish the surveys could be every day.. And to qualify for every survey.. But unfortunately it is not.. I don’t know where i can earn some bucks.. I need some stuffs and i don’t know what i can do..

  32. Hello. I tried SurveyTime. I was pleased by that they are paying instantly. Of course it may be a slow process and hard to qualify for an advert, but they are paying which legitimates the site. But are there any similar (alternative) sites like SurveyTime (but worldwide because I am from Bulgaria). I am trying to collect some bucks through internet. Actually I believe there are some opportunities where you can earn money online, but I can’t find ways which are suitable for my country. And the ways don’t need to be only surveys – they can be online games and etc. I found a site called Sitago. The only thing you had to do was just playing online games. And i got paid, but i cashed out all the money. I forgot to leave some bucks so I can continue playing in the site. I am looking for something which won’t take this much time and will pay (if not instantly) around to 3 days. I really hope.. I registered in sites like , I haven’t got a payment from these sites (but not because the aren’t legit) it’s because the process is slow. I believe in PaidViewPoint so much. It’s one of the greatest advert sites. Please if you have some ideas, let me know. It really was my dream to help my family with earning online, because I don’t have enough ages to get on real work.. (my country is Bulgaria).

    • Hi Stanislav.

      I will try to do my best to guide you from what you seem to be looking for.

      First of all, PaidviewPoint you mention is a great site. But not for Bulgaria. You will likely never get enough options there to get paid. Golden-farm biz is not a site I personally recommend as I find it a waste of time and to get a chance of really earn you have to pay and you end up losing quite a bit.

      Secondly, there are plenty of ways to earn online but there are also A LOT of options that are a waste of time. An important aspect is to do it with the right expectations. You need to be aware that survey and Get-Paid-To (GPT) sites can be a way to earn a bit extra BUT they will not be a way to make a living or anything close to this. Just so you know what to expect.

      I have a whole article about that here if you want to know more: Can You Make a Full-Time Income Doing Surveys? (Truth Revealed)

      When that is said, the advantage of GPT is that there are completely free. So if you do it with the right expectations they can be good. You can see a list of the best GPT sites here that all give more earning options than only surveys.

      You can also check out this list of the best international survey sites which means you can join them no matter where you live.

      Hope this helps

    • I write a review blog for various survey sites. I started my review of last week and had problems from Day 1. The site sells the promise that all Surveys that are completed will receive a ($1) immediate compensation to your linked PayPal. The software is aesthetic and pretty user-friendly but that’s pretty much the extent of my good feelings to the site. After my first two completed surveys, done on the first day, I received an immediate response to my email that stated the address was wrong and I needed to give them a new address. I didn’t respond right away and later that afternoon I received a receipt from Surveytime that the error was on their end, and had now been credited. Sure enough, despite several hours later my PayPal was credited with ($2). A couple of days later I took another survey that was abnormally long (very intrusive and extensive). After I had completed the survey (took nearly an hour) I was sent back to the Surveytime Software where I received a “you weren’t accepted by the survey, try another”. Later that day I sent a return email to the company asking where my compensation was and invited Surveytime to check the completed survey for veracity. I heard absolutely nothing back. Now, 3 days ago I completed 2 more surveys, and actually received an immediate email notification receipt that I received ($1) for each survey. I checked the PayPal account and noticed that while there were 2 deposits made, each was for ($0.01) for a grand compensation of 2 cents (I didn’t even know PayPal would accept such a minimal amount). For the past 3 days I have sent numerous emails to their customer service addy, but haven’t received one response. It’s unfortunate, because the approach is unique, however, it’s all a huge waste of time.

    • I already tried surveytime and already got $3 instantly rewrded to my paypal, the part that i just didnt like is whenever surveytime sends me a desktop survey notif and click it, it says that i am.unable to finish the survey when in fact i havent started yet. Why is that? And yes, the availability of surveys depends on your location. As for me i am from ph and i can say that it less than 4 to none for each day

        • everything about how to get started is described in the review. But if it is the right option or not for you depends what your goals are – because you mention you want to start working so you just need to be aware that paid surveys are not a way to make a living. It is a way to earn a bit extra while having your opinion heard. So you need to do it with the right expectations.

  33. I just discovered that tommy from can speak :)and write also..I have completed many surveys in one day they stop to pay me..I completed the surveys and they didn’t account was flagged ..I’m from italy I’m alex and my account is xxxxx..I have sent many mails to tommy..never could answer..I would like to come back to work..thanks for the time and the support

    • Hi Alex,

      Just wanted to let you know that there is no guarantee Surveytime will see the message here. But as you can see they sometimes stop by and answer messages. But just wanted to let you know that it will not necessarily happen fast. But hope you will get an answer soon.

      Since you are from Italy, did you, by the way, see I just recently published a list with the best survey sites in Italy? You can check it out here if you are interested in other sites to take surveys until you get an answer from Surveytime:

      • Yeah thanks for the support..i saw the list you can erase timebucks it’s a loss of can enter a good very well paid gpt as of the best..the list is OK..

  34. I don’t know how you got there to give this site a positive review, because every time i try to fill out a survey after answering some questions i get kiccked back to the Survey time Page with the message that i could not complete the survey and that i can try another one.
    I tried for about 15 times and the i just gave up. I can use my time better with working sites that don’t take peoples time for nothing.

    Please take better care about reviewing such b*llsh*t sites. Not happy

    • Thanks for sharing your experience Gidion.

      I want to make it clear that my reviews are based on my own experience and I have not had problems with Surveytime as I also show in the video above so you can see it for yourself.

      And if you look around my website you will see I, in general, am very critical when reviewing sites and try to give as many details and perspectives as possible. That is also why I allow comments of the different reviews so others can leave their experiences as well as we do not all have the same.

      So I appreciate you sharing your experiences and I take them into consideration. Since you are not the only one I have heard had some bad experiences with Surveytime, I have just added a section in the review that makes people aware of these complaints so they can see other people’s experiences as well.


    • yo to get better results use ages 30 – 40 and have 2 kids. make sure no one in ur house works for advertising and thats how i complete every survey i get

  35. And now I got an email in PayPal that I have been transacted money through OT vision LTD but when I try to claim my payment there’s an error saying the transaction no longer exist.
    Why are these sites focused on scamming people. With all trust thinking it to be legit site I opted for this site but it’s also a scam

    • Sorry to hear that Parose. Did you write their support?

      Because as you can see in the video included in this review, I have been paid without problems so they are not deliberately trying to scam people. But they do seem to have some technical problems at times that can be quite frustrating according to the feedback I hear.

      But if you have not contacted them yet, I would suggest you write their support. You can see the email address in the review above. I have also written them and made them aware of the technical issues some users seem to have at the moment so hopefully, they will do something about it soon.

        • Sorry to hear that. Unfortunately, I have heard other people having the same problem. The only thing I can recommend is to write their support and hope they will not take too long to get back to you.

      • I answered and finished a survey but when I tried to redeem my reward I was asked for my mobile phone where code will be sent, but it says, “to use a mobile number”, I am using a valid working mobile number. Then when I tried again it says, “number has an issue and to try after 24hrs.” Getting no help from their support at all. Not once did I receive any reply in my email regarding the issue.

        • Sorry to hear that. As mentioned in the review, the support is, unfortunately, not always very fast. The only thing you can really do is to keep writing them once in a while or just simply move on to other sites if it is not working for you there.

  36. After reading through this I opted for survey time. Was such a bad experience. At first 2 times I after completing surveys I didn’t even get an option to redeem my reward then 3rd time they told me to enter my PayPal email. I did so only to receive an email that my order was declined and my email address was incorrect.
    I tried almost 5 times rechecked my email . No are you writing this blog because you get paid through them to promote this .

    • I am sorry you had a bad experience Parose. As mentioned in the review, they at times do have some problems and the support is not always the fastest, unfortunately.

      I write based on my own experience and if you look around my site you will see I go out of my way to help people that run into problems with any site if I can. That is also why I several times have reached out to Surveytime and told them about the problems readers here on my blog have experienced with their site to try and help out.

      And if you look around my site you will also see that I am always saying my honest opinion and share my own experience with the sites I review. If you knew how often I had said no to post an article with an angle controlled by companies but always insists on giving an honest opinion based on my experience.

      Sometimes that experience will not be the same as others and that is fair – that is why I encourage people to share their own experiences below my posts as well so we can share with each other and people can see different opinions. I could just have blocked this option but think it is great to get feedback from others and when it is valid and constructive I also take it into consideration when updating my reviews.

      So I appreciate you sharing your experiences as it is very valuable to know – and when I hear several people giving feedback I really do take it into consideration.

      And yes, I do earn commissions from some sites mentioned here on the website but only if people actually end up finding them useful and use them. I am very honest about this as this is the only way to pay the cost of running this website which takes a lot of time and effort. But I ALWAYS make sure to be honest and do NOT promote any site that I do not find worth it.
      If you look around you will see that there are many sites I even warn against – in fact, I could have earned a lot by recommending some of these but I never do and only focus on recommending sites I actually have had a good experience with.

      I have just recently written Surveytime again and made aware that some people have mentioned problems with there site here on my website so I hope they will soon get back to you and fix things.


      • I must speak up, mikael works hard at what he does and I think there is misunderstanding of Surveytime. I have done surveys there and for the ones that i DID complete, they paid. I think some are getting screened out and not understanding the wording they use, and sometimes they do not screen out till later and which is frustrating. I do not really do anymore there because i have to sometimes do 10 and only one goes thru. All depends on what they are looking for and as long as your paypal or what you choose for rewards is set up properly, should be no reason why payment should not go thru. I used to just go thru and choose the short surveys and if by 6 or more screened out, i just close up and come back another time. You cannot blame mikael for that in my opinion, and best just to close your account with them and move on, there are hundreds more to choose from, and remember to read clearly your demographics area to see where you stand and remember, there are no guarantees there either. Surveys are made to get a little side money and to be enjoyable, when you want more than that, or it is not enjoyable any more, then we must move on. Happy surveying and thank you mikael for all you do and we are not in a perfect world.

  37. Completed a survey on surveytime and waiting since 2 hrs for payment, didn’t receive one yet, i have screenshot but where to contact them, what is their contact email, plz reply

  38. I’ve been disappointed with the “instant rewards’’ right after completing a survey. I have completed almost 5 surveys for a span of a few days but I have not received any reward emails until this day. I kept sending emails to Tommy but I’ve got no replies.

    It’s just sad how you spend much effort qualifying for and answering surveys and not get paid. They should’ve atleast emailed me the reasons why I’m not getting paid than ghosting on my emails.

    • Hi Chen,

      All your survey completions have been paid to you.
      Unfortunately, when the survey provider does not verify a survey completion as a valid one – we cannot pay the user.

      • One Concern From Past 1 Month – 1. They are sending 0.01 dollar to paypal for verification purpose.I received that 0.01 amount, but after that they are not paying the remaining amount even after 7 days now and completed many surveys though. And the worst is that They are not even responding to multiple mails sent by me. very upsetting. So can we trust them anymore?

        • unfortunately, their support is often quite slow. I have been told they are working on this but at the moment it will take a lot of patience to get in contact with their support.

  39. i tried 2 surveys alraeady and when i tried redeem my reward it requires me to use my mobile phone where code will be sent but it says my number has an issue and to try after 24hrs. but same issue. sent several emails to support but not a single response

    • Sorry to hear that Noel. As you can see from some of the other comments below, the support is not always fast to answer but they do answer – they have even left several answers for comments here on this website.

      So hopefully you will hear back from them soon. Feel free to keep us updated about how it goes.

      • i sent several emails to support and Tommy but until now no response. Same error with my mobile number. This is unfair since they got the response that they need for the surveys but i cannot redeem my prize. They don’t even provide options.

        • Sorry to hear that Noel. How long has it been since you send the messages to their support? Because they are not always the fastest support. They say they are working on improving the speed of the support but seems like it is still not completely functioning.

          • I have just tried to reach out to them also here a few days ago to hear if there are any updates about their support. Hopefully, they will get back soon.

  40. After finally getting support and then actually getting them to pay me, I continued to take surveys. All of a sudden when it was time to pay me, they said my account violated some TOS, to which I asked what TOS- they never replied- OR Paid me. At this point, I have written and will continue to follow up with the BBB concerning this company.

  41. Hi Mikael:

    I was gonna give this site a try but after reading the comments I am gonna move on. I am surprised you haven’t removed it from your top sites list.

    • Yes, there have been quite a few complaints which is not a great sign of course. But I have actually also heard quite a few people having good experiences with Surveytime and have also been paid many times by them myself without problems – it just tends mostly to be people that do not have so good experiences that share them publicly which is quite natural. Also, I have been told that they are working on improving their support with seems to be one of the big issues so really hope to see this improvement soon.

      One of the reasons it is on the top list is that it actually gives very high rewards in all countries compared to many other sites. But I will keep an eye on how everything goes and I keep evaluating the lists on my site.

      Thanks for the comment

  42. I took 2 surveys today which mean I’ll get $2, but they refuse to pay me.

    “Account didn’t pass security checks and was flagged,” said them. Then why they let me took surveys in the first place? What a scam.

    • Unfortunately, I have heard quite a few similar stories even though I have not had problems getting paid by Surveytime myself. I am trying to get a hold of them and letting them know about stories like this and hope the will soon get back with a solution.

    • yes, I answered 5 surveys all in all a while ago and took me almost 1 hour. the last page says that I have to wait for the email to have my earnings. I’ve waited for the email to arrive and waited in my PayPal to monitor if my $5 has been given already. To my dismay, there was 1 email arrived and said that my order has been declined. OMG out of 5 surveys, only one email arrived and said that they will not pay me. Very disappointed.

      • Hey! Yes, I got the payment and already took some surveys after that. Your panel is legit. Thank you!

        Would you add edit profile, survey history, or even delete account buttons for the future?

        • You can Opt Out from Surveytime from the link in Terms of Service.
          Regarding edit profile/survey history – they are considered as future additions.

      • I completed two surveys but surveytime did not pay me at all, then I got an email from Tommy from surveytime that Your Surveytime Order Has Been Declined, I have never experienced this before what should I do?

  43. I’ve completed two surveys. Only to be told that my payment was rejected for not passing security checks or something. What security checks? And why am I not passing??? I signed up, answered the questions before me, etc…and waited on surveys. No way of updating anything- but nothing needs to be updated. I wrote- nothing. No response whatsoever. Basically they’re just making money off my information and coming up with an excuse not to pay for it. I call FOUL.

      • Hi. Surveytime always sends invites to take a survey but when I take the survey it always says that it is a desktop survey…every single time! Any suggestion on what to do? Thanks

        • Don’t think there as such is anything to do about that – the only thing is to use your desktop to take them if you have access to one. They do unfortunately not have an option where you can choose only to receive invites for a certain device.

  44. Hi I’m getting bombarded with emails from tommy this site at least 20 day please if it is your site stop don’t remember even joining if it wasn’t s scam site then your name is going to be mud

    • Hi Liz,

      To get the emails to stop you need to contact Surveytime itself and ask them to stop it. You should also be able to just unsubscribe in any of the emails you get from them or simply block their emails.

      Hope this helps.


        • Hi Cindi,

          Be aware that Tommy from Surveytime will not necessarily see your message here. If you have a question for them, you have to contact their support.

          As for your question, I have never heard about Surveytime giving out iPhones so it sounds suspicious. Make sure to check the email it is coming from and if there are any suspicious links in the email.

          It could be someone misusing Surveytime’s name if an email is send in their name about this. Or who says you have won a phone?

  45. I was excited when surveytime first started, was getting a few acceptances but now nothing but problems, doing 10 at minimum surveys, and screened out, is a much for me, there are too many other sites, survey taking should be enjoyable, not frustrating. i have not been doing them, and i spammed them from sending me numerous emails with surveys available. It is too bad they resorted to this kind of business.

  46. I’ve already completed a survey and survey time ask for a paypal email account. So I registered right away and everything went smoothly. I even verified it with my email. But then, there was an error in transferring of payment and it says “Account didn’t pass security checks and was flagged”. I’ve already message Tommy but there was no reply as of to date. Will I ever get my reward for the survey

    • Hi Joy,

      I would suggest you write again if you have not heard back. Their support is not always fast – I have mentioned this to them earlier when I wrote to them and they say they would work on this so hopefully soon they will get a new support system.

      • No response as of to date. How can I remove my account in surveytime? I think this is going nowhere. Thanks for your response anyway.

        • Sorry to hear that Joy. You can just unsubscribe from their emails – there should be a link to this at the end of each email they send.

    • Judging by the many comments/complaints this is a scam site. I got the same exact message as you. When I wrote (twice now) I get no response.

      • Hi Tommy,

        I’m one of surveyor
        I get problem with my paypal and have been send emails to but, doesn’t have any answers for sure. Please help me

        • Hi Rina,

          Tommy will not necessarily see your comment here so you have to write their official email to get help from them. I have just been told that they are upgrading their support so they will be able to give better and faster support in the future, but for now, you have to write them again and be a bit patient. Hope this helps and let me know how it goes.

          • Thank you, Mikael.

            Today, they’re email me again to change another payment method but, the link doesn’t work. I don’t know what’s wrong.
            Btw, did they ever reply to your email? I contact surveytime team on and but doesn’t have any response. Do you know their others support??

          • As mentioned above, Surveytime currently has a bit of a wait when it comes to support. But they are working on improving this. So would you should do is to wait a few days and if you still have not heard anything try writing them again.

  47. I’ve been unable to get keeps telling me there’s something wrong with my phone number
    I’m from Nigeria

  48. completed surveys gotten codes to enter and nothing happens , seems like a scam site , you send them a email with no answer

    • Sorry to hear about your experiences Spiros. The definitely do not have a fast customer service but I would suggest you to just keep writing them.


    • Hi, I did 2 surveys already but every time I finished the survey, it always says that I did not finished it. And when I’m trying to input my mobile number, I’m not receiving any verification code.

      • There, unfortunately, seems to be a lot of issues like that with Surveytime recently. Hope they will fix these problems soon.

    • Hi Abdul,

      Surveytime does strangely enough not have the option to update your survey profile. So you need to contact their support about this.


  49. I joined 2 days ago. I tried doing at least 25 surveys on there & was rejected by each one. What kind of a game is that site trying to play?

    • Sorry to hear you have a hard time finding surveys you qualify for Marc. 25 attempts without qualifying definitely is a lot and quite unusual. Not sure why that is.


  50. Completed my first survey on the 24th, and choose paypal for payment, even got my phone number verified (still have the text message with the code that I imputed), and nothing, no deposit in my paypal, no confirmation email…and yes the site is very confusing as for contacting.
    I did get an email when I needed to change password, from a Tommy, I replied to the email about this problem that night, and today sent email to the address that the email came from with no response, plus I tried with the email you provided in your review and when I sent it was not reconized.

    • Sorry to hear that Lee. Sounds very strange.

      I will try to see if I can get through to them and hear about a better way to reach their support. Will keep you updated.


          • Haven’t heard back from you. Did you find any info on why my payment did not deposit into my paypal?

          • Sorry Lee. I got through to someone from Surveytime a few days ago but that person then went away for some days. So still working on getting an answer. Will let you know when I get more info.


          • I joined survey time five days ago. I come 2 surveys ard chose Amazon as my payment method. I received an email from Tommy 3 days later with an Amazon ecode that was invalid. I went on Amazon to reedem the ecode, and it said ” already redeemed to another account.” I am frustrated with this site already because there is no contact point to assist you. That really sucks! I feel like I have been played by this site.

          • Sorry to hear that Rochelle,

            It definitely can be difficult to find the contact info on the site. But here in this review, you can find an email to their support. It is one I have had confirmed by Surveytime works for support so try to write them through that.

            Hope that helps.


        • Hi again Lee,

          Just wanted to let you know I heard from Surveytime and I gave them your name. But did not hear much else from them. But hopefully, they will look into what is going on with your account.

      • I have been trying to redeem my PayPal reward it let me add my PayPal email address then asks for my mobile number I am in the UK and it has a +1 next to where you are meant to add yours but I have tried numerous different ways but says try other mobile number, I can’t change the+1 either, is there any other way I can get a code sent to my mobile as its a nightmare trying to add my number

        • Hi Sharon,

          I do not even remember how I did it since it has been a while other than I could choose a phone number to verify even though mine does not start with +1.

          I would suggest you to contact their support – you can find the email in this review.

          And feel free to keep me updated about how it goes.


      • I have tried to redeem my PayPal reward for 2 days now every time I try to put my mobile number it says put other number it has +1 next to where I need to put my number I am in the UK so how do I put in my number do I leave out the 07 at the beginning can you please give me an example I have emailed the support email 3 times in 3 days but not had a reply yet. Thank you

        • Can unfortunately not give you an example Sharon. As mentioned in the previous reply it has been a while since I registered so do not exactly remember how it was other than it went very smooth for me.

          So best to wait for a reply from their support. Strange they have not answered yet. They are usually not that slow – hope they will get back to you very soon.

          • Still have not been able to put my mobile number into redeem my rewards and I have sent another email with no reply that’s about 6 emails to the support and nothing is this site really legit because I am beginning to wonder.

          • Really sorry to hear they are no getting back to you.

            I have been paid by them several times for taking surveys so I know it has worked for me.

            But it definitely is frustrating they do not get back to you. Seems like they need to update their customer service.

            Thanks for keeping the rest of us updated. Really hope you will hear back from them soon.

  51. Hi Mikael,
    I signed up for SurveyTime yesterday and went through the preliminary questionnaire. Once I finished, it said “Start Survey”. When I click on it, it says “You have already taken the survey”. Once I close the screen, it opened a new screen “Send notifications to Email, Desktop and Text”. There is no Logout Option in this website. Today, when i opened the website, it said “We have a new survey based on your demographics”. When I click on it, again it said “You have already taken the survey”. This has happened many times today. And I have NOT taken a single survey yet !! Since there is no Logout option, I am not sure anyone in this world can hack the Email ID, to take survey on my behalf… May be, this does not work for India. Just wanted to let you know to help you update your list. Thanks.

    • Thanks for sharing your experiences. It should work from India so sounds strange what you are experiencing. I would write their support if I were you and ask them what is going on.

      About logging out – it is possible to log out from Surveytime. In the right top corner, there is a small icon. It does not say “logout” so it might not be so clear but if you click it, you will log out.

      Hope this helps.


      • I wanted to comment by “music”, I find when that happens to go ahead and clear your browsing history sometimes helps me. If you go to surveys thru you email, it automatically takes you to site and your auto logged in, although it looks like your not…but you are. You can go to the web and login if you have issues with it saying survey already taken, but usually I found its with cookies needing cleaned or not refreshing. Hope that helps. And yes it does get frustrating doing surveys and then not being eligible, so for me on this site, I just choose the smallest time surveys and maybe do about 6 or 7, if none go thru, I take break and come back later, and sometimes I have better luck.

        • Oh, meant to say, If your unhappy with a survey site, just cash out, unsubscribe, and move on. Their are many more survey sites available for you to try and that is just my opinion on that. If we are doing something that is not enjoyable, then we remove that from our agenda.

          • I agree – there are so many sites so if one particular site is giving too many problems it is better to just move on.

            Thanks Darlene

      • Hi Mikael,
        I am reporting this after a month. Still I have not got any surveys through Surveytime. Whenever i click on the site, it will say Welcome Back. We Found a new survey for you. When you click on Continue button, it will ask just one or two prequalification questions and immediately it will say You were unable to complete the survey. And the process continues to eternity. So I have clicked Unsubscribe button through my EMAIL. Still, when I click on the website, it will say Welcome Back. We found a new survey for you. How do I delete my account with Surveytime? Pls help.

        • Think you need to contact their support about this as I am not sure.

          You can see the email for their support in my review above.

          Hope that helps.


    • Thanks for sharing your experiences Pam.

      Great to hear you got paid even though you find it difficult to qualify for surveys there.


      • There should be a link in the emails you receive from Surveytime where you can unsubscribe. If that does not work, then try to write their support and ask them to delete you.
