  1. I was just wondering if your research is restricted to sites that serve US alone, or do you also know about companies which perform these surveys globally?

    1. Varies by company where are you based? Note I’m using a plugin that will automatically send you to the right location if they have a following in that area.

  3. Chris,

    I’ve been a huge fan of your work ever since I first heard you on Pat Flynn’s podcast. I had been doing surveys online for 6 years or more and I had stopped a few years back. Reading your stuff has kinda got me reignited to use this as an additional pocket money stream.

    Glad to see your insights.

    1. Try out PaidViewpoint, SurveySavvy, Clearvoice Surveys, OpinionWorld, TechSay, or Mindswarms. And iPoll should work, but the surveys are less frequent for their international panels.

  5. Are you familiar with “Smart Panel”? I received an invitation to join while completing surveys on Opinion Outpost and wondered if you had used it.

    1. Hey Barbara,

      I am familiar with them, but haven’t done enough surveys to cash out with them, and since it’s my policy to give honest reviews after fully experiencing these panels, I won’t say anything definitive.

      However, from my limited experience and reviews from other people, it does indeed look like Smart Panel is a legitimate paying survey company. I see a few complaints from others, and have noticed myself that they don’t send out as many surveys as other companies I recommend, like Opinion Outpost, i-Say, and iPoll.

      So like most other sites, I sign up for Smart Panel and do the surveys as they come in and will hopefully be able to cash out in the future with them and give an in depth review.

      Thanks,
      Chris

      1. Yo bro, do you actually use the companies you talk about or are you just pretending here so that you don’t seem unknowledgeable about it… Try googling smart panel, it isn’t a survey website haha. Good try though, and in case you want a real opinion, they’re pretty good but its a hassle having to download the app on all your devices and it will gobble up any device’s battery twice as fast. I don’t recommend but if you’d like I say go for it for two weeks, get that nice 15 dollar start, then cash out and delete the apps pronto. Seriously though chris, a simple google search could have told you all this…

        glad to enlighten,

  7. Hey Chris,
    Great great reviews. I am really interested in looking into making some extra money off survey taking. I was wondering, which survey websites you believe have the highest cash payouts for just taking surveys? Preferably checks, but PayPal is fine too.

    1. Hey Stella,

      Here’s a list of my top recommended sites: http://surveychris.com/survey-companies/

      Most of them are check or PayPal, as that’s what I prefer as well.

      Hope that helps,

      Chris

    1. Hey Nafis,

      I can’t recommend any sites that you would be using a VPN on, as it’s against their terms of service.

  9. Greetings Chris, I am from Portugal and have been feeling very inspired thanks to your incredible, professional reviews of paid online survey sites. However, I am not sure if there is enough survey offer for this litte European county, even being registered in several at once, to rake in the monthly hundreds.

    Could you be so kind as to enlighten me further on this? Any more specific sites I should focus on registering that would bother with my country for results? Thanks a lot in advance!

    Best regards.

    1. Hey Joao,

      While the surveys and offers you are given are based on your demographic, which includes what country you live in, for Portugal, I’d try out PaidViewpoint, MyView, iPoll, Ipsos i-Say and GlobalTestMarket.

  12. I have 2 question to ask you Chris. First question if you signs up with cashcrate. Do they issue your money by checks to cash in your back account? Second question the checks that you show that you received from cashcrate. Why aren’t they cashed in your bank account?

  21. I have tried working with paid surveys in the past. I wasted months doing those silly things and, while I did have a small balance with most of the companies, I never generated enough income to actually receive any money. What am I doing wrong?

  22. Hi! I would recommend trying pineconeresearch, it’s my favorite! Each survey gives you exactly 300 pts, which you can cash out for 3$. Thank you so much for this list!!
