When it comes to making money online, one of my favorite options is online surveys that pay through PayPal. While I do use sites that pay by other means, such as gift cards or by check, PayPal is typically the fastest option for getting cash.
Below, I have collected a list of sites that either strictly pay through PayPal or have it as an option for you to choose from. The list below is in no particular order, but they are all sites that I recommend when it comes to taking surveys. I've also included a few sites that I use mostly for paid offers, since that is another great way to earn money online and the pay with Paypal.
14 Online Surveys That Pay Through PayPal

1. My Favorite On The List: Swagbucks
Swagbucks offers so many ways to make money and different bonuses, that I wrote a huge guide to it that you can see here:

Opinion Outpost is one of the sites that I have been using the longest when it comes to online surveys. They are a very straightforward site to use. They email you a few surveys a week along with offering surveys in their dashboard.
Not only does Opinion Outpost pays through Paypal, but they have a low minimum cash out at $10 and will pay you instantly. That is something that is very unusual for online survey companies.
To begin earning towards your instant payout, you can join here:
SurveySpot is a sister company of Opinion Outpost. They are two distinct survey panels that are both ran by the same market research firm. What this means is that the legitimacy of Opinion Outpost is the same for SurveySpot.
They both offer the same features, but one thing you will see is that sometimes the same survey is posted to both sites. Since you can only take surveys once, you will be immediately screened out of it the second time you open it. Just something to be aware of.
Want to sign up for SurveySpot? You can here:
Don't let this discourage you, though. There have been visitors of Survey Chris that have signed up and been accepted for PineCone Research.
Since they don't have a sign up form on their website, you have to find a link to it. Luckily I have one for you.
Use the link that matches your age and sex:
If you're 18 – 24 year old male use this link: Join PineCone Research
Here is the 18-34 year old UK link: Join PineCone Research

iPoll used to be called SurveyHead, but rebranded after their mobile app called iPoll became really popular. Along with a great mobile app, they offer plenty of websites in their dashboard for you to earn money with.
iPoll offers a $5 cash bonus for simply signing up. You can sign up here:
7. Ipsos i-Say
They also offer a loyalty program, which is always a bonus to come across when looking at online survey sites that pay through PayPal. Simply the more surveys the take, the bigger your bonus at the end of the year.
If you want to earn money on Ipsos i-Say, you can start here:
Paid Viewpoint doesn't pay out very much to begin with, right around $.10 per survey, but the surveys only take about 2 minutes to do. This rate is below what I usually recommend, but Paid Viewpoint has a feature called “TraitScore”.
Your TraitScore on Paid Viewpoint is how specified your demographic is. This means that the more questions you answer, the more the can know your demographic, and the higher your TraitScore becomes. The higher your TraitScore, the more you get paid per question. So while they don't pay out much in the beginning, they can eventually become one of your highest paying survey companies.
If you want to get paid through PayPal with Paid Viewpoint, you can sign up here:
CashCrate is consistently one of my highest earning sites, and I absolutely recommend them.
If you like to sign up, you can do so here:
They focus primarily on current events, so it is a nice change of scene for the consumer based surveys most other companies give out.
You can sign up here:
11. e-Poll Surveys
e-Poll is another survey site that focuses primarily around one topic. However, their topic is about watching TV. So if you like to watch TV, then give your opinion on shows, this is could be the survey company for you.
The minimum cash out is only $5 as well, which is a nice plus.
GlobalTestMarket is another international survey company that works in the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Germany and Canada. They focus on developing new products and services, so if you take surveys with them, you can sometimes hear about cool upcoming things.

You also have to apply to studies, and sometimes don't get accepted.
While this sounds like it would be a bad site to use, what makes it one of my favorites is that each survey is 7 questions long and pays $50.
It literally takes less than 20 minutes, and you get paid $50 by PayPal within 24 hours of completion. That has to be one of the highest paying survey I've come across.
If you want to start applying to studies, you can sign up here:
PrizeRebel is another survey website that offers payout options via PayPal. You can cash out as little as 500 points to earn $5. PrizeRebel offers a wide range of PayPal redemption options starting at $5 on up to $100 payout amounts. You can also request a custom payout based on the specific amount of points that you have which is a nice touch. Another bonus is that PrizeRebel occasionally offers a slight discount on the point redemptions as well. For example, instead of spending 500 points to redeem $5 it ends up being 485 points instead (a 3% bonus).
You can earn points with PrizeRebel through offers, surveys, videos, tasks and polls. I definitely recommend you sign up for PrizeRebel.
So there you have it. My list of the best online surveys paying through PayPal. If you have any questions about surveys, or about any one of these companies, let me know in the comments so I can help.
