I wonder about survey sites with membership fee really pays. I've seen survey and mystery shopping site that you need to pay before you can become their member. The fee is a bit high than ptc membership. Is there anyone who earns well in survey sites that has membership fee? Tell me about it? thanks!

Well i have joined a online survey site by paying joining fee in advance since last one and half month. The site is www.speakasiaonline.com which provides weekly online surveys. There are two parts of a weekly survey and has $10 compensation for each survey means you can earn $20 per week. By referring this site to someone else the company pays $20. This is not the end of your income, you will earn $3 per week per referral at the time of submitting surveys by them.

If they are asking you to pay, then it's some kind of scam. Don't join. There are tons of places online that are legit where you can do surveys for free, that's the way it should. be. I've never even heard of something like paying to take surveys. That's just really weird to me.get away quick

I wouldn't even give it a chance to pay just to do surveys. I rather do free ones instead of paying. Never pay for anyghing just to earn money. SCAM!!!!!

Rule of thumb with survey's: There is no guarantee anyone will qualify for a any survey whether you pay or not because marketing researchers look for a specific geographic audience on any given day and on any given product. So how can anyone guarantee that by a person paying membership would always qualify for specific studies. There are many free survey companies that we have better chances of qualifying and being paid for. I do several and have never had to pay.

I have joined some survey sites that is free but they send about 2-3 survey for a year so I really do not earn well, only USA, Canada and some Europe country can only earn in surveys.

Avoid sites that demands money as registration fees. Many of these sites are fraudulent. They are nothing but scam site and they are waiting for an opportunity to reap you off. I lost a huge amount of money in one of these sites and it is called: www.typeinternational.com TYPEINTERNTIONAL IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST SCAM SITES ON THE INTERNET. I LOST CLOSE TO $300 TO THE FRAUDULENT ACTIVITIES OF TYPEINTERNATIONAL So be conscious of internet scam.

I wouldn't waste my time with sites that asks you to pay first to join before they pay you for doing work for them. The rule of thumbs says, Stay Out From Such Sites.

Definitely but not all site pay money to you because there are so many sites on net and according to my review about 70% are fraud so never trust all the site but among them some are good which genuinely pay for filling survey.I join one paid membership survey site before 1 month and till date i earn more then 5000 Rs.from this site so i think it's good to earn money by paying little amount then waiting month to month for survey from others free site.

I do regular survey for last 6 months for about 5-6 sites which all are free of registration. However, none of them become matured with minimum withdrawal limit. I have already decided that WILL NOT many any registration for any online site, ever if they pay well nor not. I cannot trust any site by making payment for registration. As we have a lot of free registration sites and they are paying, why need to take unwanted tension by paying and waiting for payment. It is my choice that no registration for any such sites. Thank-s

I am also about to register in one survey/mystery shopping site that promise to earn big but there is the membership fee so I did not go further. There are free survey site that takes a lifetime before you reach the payout cause there is seldom survey.

It is better to research about those sites and try to lokk for some forums and proff of payments.
