Get paid for filling out surveys

About Paid Survey Companies
Taking online paid surveys isn't a conventional job that pays an hourly wage, but is a great way of earning money online!

We've researched and analysed some paid online survey work from home opportunities, including doing paid surveys, online market research, focus groups and product testing, where you can either earn money or win prizes (or both!). You won't earn a fortune, but there are some great rewards:
GfK Media View Panel
There are lots of online paid survey companies that aren't great, so we've done some market research and detailed our favourite legitimate paid survey companies, to help you earn the most money.

What are paid survey companies?

It's simple really - lots of companies do paid market research to find out what the general public think and want. They commission market research organisations to do paid surveys to find out what you and I think, so we can get paid for our opinion whilst trying to influence things!

With the paid survey companies below you'll have to sign up, and then either access, or get sent by email, relevant online paid surveys. The paid survey companies below reward with either money or credits which can be redeemed for cash (via cheque, Paypal or direct bank transfer) once you reach their payment threshold. These are not prize draws where you may not get anything. With all the paid surveys below you'll make money. We have listed survey companies that reward with gift certificates and vouchers here. We recommend registering with at least 3-4 paid survey companies to increase the number of paid surveys you can take and therefore money you can make.
