Wondough is a paid survey site that looks like most other similar sites, when you first visit it.
But I have learned that you have to look deeper than just the front page to find out how good a survey site is – so that is what I did with Wondough.
In this Wondough review, you will find out, if it is a platform where you can really earn money, or if you will just waste your time.
What is Wondough and what does the site offer?
Wondough is a site I heard about a while ago, when I was approached by a representative from the company that asked, if I wanted to write a review about the site.
I always find it interesting to test new survey sites, and share my experiences, so others can find out which sites they should join, and which sites they should stay away from. I therefore decide to look more into Wondough.
To be completely clear – I have not received any payment for writing this review. I was offered that, but I said no, as I want to write independent reviews that are based on my experiences and opinions and that does not have to be approved by the companies behind.
Anyways, I decided to join Wondough and check it out to see what it has to offer. To be honest, I am not impressed, but that might very well be because of the country I live in, as the amount of opportunities will depend on that – but I will get to that later.
Let’s now go into what kind of opportunities Wondough has:
Wondough offers you to earn on paid surveys. Usually, I like this option, as you probably know, if you have read any of my other articles here on PaidFromSurveys.com. It can be a great way to earn some extra cash while giving your opinion and having your voice heard.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to test many surveys on Wondough, as there are not really any available in my country. From what I have heard from other people that have tested it, the rewards for surveys are similar to the rewards on other sites. So it might be worth checking out for you, if you live in one of the countries where Wondough have surveys.
Wondough has a pretty big section with what it calls coupons. Many survey and GPT (get-paid-to) sites have sections likes this, but usually they are called offer walls or paid offers.
I do not know why the section is called coupons on Wondough. To me, coupons are usually something you can use to get discounts on certain products or get something for free.
Usually these paid offer sections can have some good deals. I have made some nice extra cash from using some of them on other platforms. I am however not impressed by the offers on Wondough. Yes, it is definitely possible to get some good bonuses for some offers. You just have to be aware that for most of them, you have to buy something to get the bonus.
That is often how it is with these paid offers, and there can still be some great offers. You just need to make sure you know the conditions, before taking any offers. And that is what I think is lacking on Wondough – there is not really any info about the conditions for each offer. It is just a link to a site, where you can buy a certain product or service.
However, if you need the products they are promoting anyway, it can be worth using these coupons and looking into this option.
Wondough has a section with videos, you can watch and get paid for this. Again, how many opportunities you have here depends a lot on the country you live in.
Watching videos are offered by many survey and GPT sites, and can be a fun option. Just be aware that they usually do not pay very well. So you should mostly use this option for entertainment and not to make any real money.
I love when survey sites give a joining bonus, as it is a great way to get started. Wondough offers a joining bonus of 80 Wondough ePoints as they call them.
I most however say that I have not received that bonus, but it could be because they only give it to certain countries. Or because it is something they have just introduced, and therefore there might be a glitch in the system. Either way, it is of course not satisfactory when a site says in the FAQ section that you will get a joining bonus and you then do not. I hope this is something Wondough will get cleared up as soon as possible.
How do you get paid?
Whenever you take a survey, watch a video, or take an offer on Wondough, you get paid in Wondough ePoints.
These can be exchanged into a number of different rewards. What kind of rewards that are available to you depends on the country you live in. 100 Wondough ePoints are worth $1.
In Europe where I live, I only have access to Amazon gift cards. But supposedly you can also get paid through PayPal, get gift cards for Netflix, Walmart etc.
You can get a payout already when you have earned 300 points, which is equivalent of $3. This is a very nice low payout threshold for a survey site, and definitely a big plus, as that means you can quickly earn enough to get a payout.
How much money can you make?
It looks like you can make a bit of extra pocket money on Wondough. It however very much depends on the country you live in.
Like with any other similar site, you just have to remember that it will not make you rich or a full time income. In my experience, there are however survey sites with better and more opportunities to earn than Wondough.
But as an extra site to earn a bit extra, Wondough might be worth considering.
Can you use it on mobile?
I prefer using survey sites that you can use on your mobile. It is a great way to take a few surveys during the day, whenever you have a small break.
According to the Wondough’s website, it looks like it is supposed to have an app. I have however not been able to find this. But I have checked how the website is to use on a mobile phone. It is a fully responsive website, and it can easily by used mobile devices, which is great.
Who can join?
I have mentioned several times that the amount of opportunities, you will find on Wondough, depends a lot on the country you live in.
You can join no matter where you live, but in most countries, it will not be worth it. The surveys, videos, and most of the offers are only for people living in the US and Canada. So if you do not live in one of these countries, you will only have access to a few offers/coupons.
If you decide to join, it is very easy and fast to do. You just do to Wondough.com and fill out the form. Or you can choose to sign up with your Twitter, Facebook, or Google account.
Beware of the testimonials
I wanted to include this section, as there is a testimonial section on Wondough’s website. From working many years with online marketing, I know that such testimonial sections are sometimes not entirely true, and I therefore decide to test Wondough’s, as I thought the pictures of the people that gave the testimonials looked a little strange.
I therefore used an image recognition tool to check, if the pictures are used somewhere else online, and they definitely are. Below you can see a few of the results that came up when searching for the guy with the big goggles:
All the images used for testimonials are on many other websites – some places for testimonials with another name or on stock photo platforms. This does not necessarily mean that the testimonials are not true, but it seems like it is not the right pictures that are used.
I know that many companies unfortunately use this method and use random testimonials and pictures to create trust. I do not like this approach, as I think it is dishonets, and that is also why I want to point this out. This does not mean that Wondough is not a legit site, but it just means that you should not rely on the testimonials on the site to decide, whether you want to join or not.
Can you get support?
If you need to get in touch with Wondough, there are several ways you can do this. On the website, you can find an address (the main office is in California), you can fill out a contact form, or you can email them.
There even is a phone number for the main offers, which is quite unusual for survey sites. But nice to know in case you need to get a hold of them. I have not been in need of support myself, so I do not know how quickly they respond.
I have now explained the different opportunities on Wondough, and my opinion about the platform in general. But let’s sum up the pros and cons, to give you a better overview.
- Pays out through PayPal
- Low payout threshold
- Free to join
- Limited opportunities in most countries
- Use fake images for their testimonials
- Offer section is not very good compared to similar sites
Wondough does not seem like a scam to me. It has some decent options, but it also seems like it is not quite developed yet. It needs some more work, and they need to clear up the little errors in descriptions, stop using fake images for testimonials, and in general provide more information on their website.
If they manage to do this, maybe it will eventually be a very good survey site, as I can see it has some potential. At the moment, it is however not a survey site I will spend much time on.
If you have any comments, questions, or have any experiences about Wondough yourself, feel free to leave a comment below. I would love to hear from you.
- Money/time ratio
Wondough has some potential for earning a bit of extra cash. But only if you live in the US or Canada. The potential is however limited compared to many other survey sites, and there are some glitches on the platform that needs to be sorted out, and some corrections that needs to be made for it to work really well.
