Frequently Asked Questions

Do paid online surveys really exist?

Yes! Free paid surveys do exist! A multitude of market research companies are on the web ready to pay you for your opinions.

You will never be asked to pay any money from the legitimate companies nor will they try to sell you anything.

How am I notified about a new online survey?

This varies by company. Most of the online survey companies will send a message to your registered email address when a survey is available that matches your profile.
