Are online surveys genuine?

I have seen many sites promoting online surveys. Do they really pay money to the survey users?

I have been with several survey companies for years now and they do pay however there are many out there that either do not pay or are just an avenue for selling things. I make sure I read all their terms and policies. The legitimate companies pay you, you don't pay them. They will disclose all information on how and when they pay, payment options, all their policies, keeping your information secure etc. I have also found that the companies that pay and are legitimate will post their contact information and are usually backed up by such organizations as the Better Business Bureau, CASRO, AMA(Marketing organizations) etc. It takes a little time to do the research but it saves you a ton of time and effort in the end.
