What is an International Paid Survey Site?

An international market research panel allows you to give your opinion by completing online surveys or taking part in online focus groups and then rewards you for participating with cash payments, gift cards and vouchers, prize draw entries or other rewards.

International Paid Survey Websites

Be rewarded for completing surveys online

There are a large number of websites that will reward you for taking part in market research surveys and for giving your opinion on new or existing products. Rewards can come in the form of cash, vouchers, points redeemable for either vouchers or cash, or entries into prize draws. These sites are free to join and you receive rewards for completing surveys online, or optionally by telephone, post, or in discussion groups. On signing up, normally all that is required of you is that you complete your profile as fully as you are able or willing to in order to increase your chances of receiving surveys to complete. Most surveys are completable within 30 minutes.

You can learn more about how online survey sites work by reading our paid surveys guide. It should hopefully help you to understand more about how these websites operate, why they exist and what benefits and rewards you can hope to receive when participating in the online surveys that they send you.

These sites will not make you rich overnight, but they will provide you with some fun, a chance to air your opinion and possibly test products, and some extra money/vouchers to do with as you please. The more paid survey sites you join the more rewards you could receive. Don't forget to read each site's terms and conditions. We have listed below what we consider to be the best and also not so good international paid survey sites and online consumer opinion and market research panels.

A word of warning: genuine paid survey websites usually conduct data quality checks on survey responses and if you are found to be fraudulently answering surveys or not taking them seriously you will lose any benefits you have accrued on these sites. So our advice is to enjoy paid survey sites, complete surveys fully and properly, enjoy giving your opinion, and enjoy the rewards.

If you have any comments about these reviews or would like to suggest another site to be considered for inclusion on this page please let us know.

MySurvey Paid Survey Panel (must be over 16 years of age)

The MySurvey Panels are all part of a worldwide and established online consumer research website. You are asked for your opinions on a variety of topics and each time you qualify to fully undertake the research (and are not screened out) you will receive MySurvey points which can then be exchanged for a very good choice of rewards. This is a professional survey research website and the paid surveys usually take between 5 and 25 minutes to complete.


ACOP

rated 4 gold starsrated 4 gold starsrated 4 gold starsrated 4 gold starsrated 4 gold stars ACOP stands for America Consumer Opinion Panel and is a worldwide panel that distributes online surveys or focus group opportunities which can pay anything between the equivalent of US$4 and US$50. Although invitations to particiapate in surveys can be rare, the rewards are generally much higher than other such sites...making it more than worthwhile spending five minutes just signing up to the site and filling out your profile. You also get paid per survey that you complete and you do not have to build up a certain amount of money before getting paid like other sites sometimes stipulate. They also have monthly draws to win a prize which all members are part of. Payment is by cheque and normally in your local currency. The site is available in a number of languages.


Toluna

rated 4 gold starsrated 4 gold starsrated 4 gold starsrated 4 gold starsrated 4 gold stars Toluna (formerly known as Test and Vote) - is an interesting site that allows you to earn rewards in many ways. For example, you can take online surveys, and participate in quick website polls. Each of these methods accumulates you points which are ultimately exchangeable for vouchers to several popular online retailers or entries into the monthly draw to win 1000 pounds. You decide what to do with your points. It's a fun site, has lots of members and you can create your own questions and answer those posed by other users. Survey invitations are presently quite frequent so you should be able to accumulate those points quickly. Surveys take between 5 and 30 minutes to complete.


Global TestMarket

rated 4 gold starsrated 4 gold starsrated 4 gold starsrated 4 gold starsrated 4 gold stars Global TestMarket is a global paid survey provider which awards you 'MarketPoints' for participating fully in surveys you are invited to complete. Upon receiving 1000 of these points (each point at present is worth 5 US cents) you can redeem them. We have received a large number of valuable invitations in a relatively small space of time, but have learned that sometimes you need to be quick in responding as the survey is closed once the required number of respondents have replied. Certainly recommended for the good rewards offered and interesting survey opportunities, although it can take a little time to get to the payout threshold. One extra positive is that even if you are screened out of a survey you should normally receive a prize draw entry for your time.

Survey Savvy

rated 3 gold starsrated 3 gold starsrated 3 gold starsrated 3 gold starsrated 3 gold stars Survey Savvy - is an international provider of paid survey opportunities offering good cash rewards which are paid in US$. The stated average reward for completion of a survey is $3 but we have been offered rewards of between $2 and $20. Each month the site pays $10 to 50 members taken from a pool of those who have not qualified to participate in a survey during that time. There is no minimum nor maximum payout threshold and all payments are made by cheque. You can also refer friends and family to the site and receive extra rewards based on what they earn when completing surveys themselves. We have only received a few opportunities to complete surveys on this site, but we recommend the site as the potential rewards are very good and the site is professional. Of course whilst the site only pays out in US$ this is a notable disadvantage to those living in the rest of the world.


Spider Metrix

rated 3 gold starsrated 3 gold starsrated 3 gold starsrated 3 gold starsrated 3 gold stars Spider Metrix is an Australian based survey site which rewards you with spiderpoints for participating in quick online site polls and longer website evaluations and surveys. These are often geographically targetted, and given that it is an Australian panel there are generally more opportunities for Australians and New Zealand, however we have seen surveys directed at some European countries too such as Greece and the site is available to any nationality. Even if you do not get invited to take part in the longer surveys there are frequent one point polls where you can quickly express your opinion on a particular question and then receive a spider point for your time. The points are exchangeable for cash payable via paypal or in the form of a cheque, or gift certificates, or you can choose to donate to charity. There is also a forum too where you can talk to other site members if you wish to!


International Paid Survey Sites that we do not currently recommend

These are sites that either appear inactive, untrustworthy or are potential scams.

QSample

not ratednot ratednot ratednot ratednot rated QSample - claims to be an international survey website which on the face of it appears to offer good rewards in return for members completing surveys. The site design is a little clumsy and has not been updated in all our time as members of the site. We cannot recommend it until we have received a survey, completed it and received payment for it, and we have been a member for well over two years! It is possibly aimed more at North American users, but we have never received a good report about the site.


Opinionate

not ratednot ratednot ratednot ratednot rated Opinionate - states it will pay up to 3.50 for each online survey you complete. When you have earned 10 or more you can request a payout in cash by paypal, or request a voucher from a named high street retailer, or donate your earnings to charity. We have not received a survey from this site for well over a year and a half so we do not recommend joining it at present. It was active when we joined in 2006, but appears to have come to a grinding halt now. We can understand not qualifying for surveys, but it is not credible when a survey invitation is not received for such a long period of time.
