And what online survey site are legit pay and not a scam, based on your experience?

I find the survey site a complete waste of time. I have tried around a dozen or so of them and have only ever had 4 surveys sent to me so have never reached the payout point.... I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

I have tried more than 50 survey site and now came down to 7 of them which really pays and they pay well. At times I had earned $500+ a month from survey sites.

I don't think he is serious. I have joined several survey sites previously and I received surveys from GlobalTestMarket only. GTM is the only site that paid me too.

In my experience, Globaltestmarket is the only site that sent me surveys and paid me. (However, it took 3 years to reach the payout.) Though other sites like surveyhead, surveysavvy are paying, they don't send enough surveys for international members.

I am a member of a legit survey site that does pay. I have not reached the minimum payout amount yet because there are times where I miss out on doing the surveys and it gets closed. I have two actually, one is earning purely from surveys and the other one lets you earn doing other tasks aside from the survey. I recall there was a survey site that paid like $5 a survey. The payout was $25 I think and as it turned out, it was a scam site and no one got paid. From my experience, the legit ones take time for you to make it to the payout especially if you are not from the US.

Yes there are survey sites out there that do pay you to do surveys however you don't get paid a lot not enough to earn a living but you'll get a few extra bucks here and there. Beware there are lots of scam sites aw well. If a websites asks for any kind of fee for signing up its a scam (why pay them when they are supposed to be paying you), also do not put any personal information in these websites such as your social. Those are just a few tips to avoid getting scammed. Some legit survey sites I've researched are: -Globaltestmarket -SurveySpot -Mysurvey -Opinion Outpost -Survey Savvy -Viewpoint *These sites I have done research on and some I've tried personally however do you own research before doing anything i don't want anyone getting scammed. You can also find a lot more legit sites this way there's a lot more out there just be careful* Another tip is to do as many legit sites as you can. The more sites you do them more surveys you will get and the more money you will make. Also a lot of these survey sites you can make money off of people you refer some times its just a small 1 time fee after they get a set amount and others offer a percentage to everything they make the more people you refer the more money you make on top of doing the surveys.

hi nurzaira I have been with mysurvey.com for five years and make 1100 points and cash in for ten dollars sometimes twice in one month and adding that to mylot earnings it really helps to pay my internet bill. lol I am always qualified for their surveys even at my elderly age. I also like Harris polls as you can win some great prizes for the points you make. and the surveys are fun too. Opinion,com is also a good site to mne these are the very tops in surveys and npdor. is also good.

It takes a while but legitimate sites are there. I draw the line when it comes to using a webcam, camcorder or anything involving my surroundings being seen. I have yet seen a focus group that physically meets for over two years but they were fun while they lasted. I am a secret shopper for a legit company that has paid me. They are located in my area, that's why I joined.

I love doing surveys, as long as they are not "offers", which is a totally different ball game. I have a few favorite survey sites I use - (listed in my blog, I have a link for this in my profile if you are looking for some other good sites to use). Surveys can pay well, and they are also interesting and very often are relevant to me.

I have been doing online surveys for about 5 months and i have been out many times so there is a legit sites out of there. If you are going to use online survey sites use review sites to see if the sites are legit or not that way you wont get ripped off.

saya pilih ipanelonline...ipanelonline memang membayar membernya untuk menulis spam.....hehehe.......pertama daftar memang survey nya banyak, tapi setelah kita selesai survey, kegiatan yang dilakukan hanyalah nulis spam,tapi kadang ada survey baru dan menghasilkan poin yang besar, tapi itu berkala dan jarang.....

I am interested in any online eanring methods including the online survey. But there are quite a lot of survey scams. So far I just know two honest paying survey websites. I have got my payments from them for many times already. But not many people like to get paid from filling out the survey because this earning process is slow. I love China

I have tried several of these online survey sites, but I have never had any luck with them. I know that there are legitimate sites that will pay you for taking a survey, I am just not sure which ones. The ones I have tried, I always ended up spending 15 minutes answering questions, only to be told that I was not qualified for the survey. I hope that you have better luck in your search.

yes some sites are reliable and worth. but i feel its a times consuming step to earn a through surveys they take your entire day and benefits a little, you can trust clixsense.com as its paying since 2007 to people so a reliable one.
