10 Amazing Survey Sites That Pay Through PayPal

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

Sharing is caring!

I do like getting paid through gift cards… Sometimes. It just doesn’t have the same flexibility that PayPal does, you know?

With a gift card I have to use it at that ONE particular place, with PayPal I can use that pretty much anywhere online. And if you have the PayPal debit card, then you can use it almost anywhere offline, too!

Are you looking for survey sites that will pay you through PayPal?

I got you!

Here are my favorite survey websites that pay through PayPal:

  • Survey Junkie – Take surveys and participate in online focus groups! Make on average $1-5 per survey (with opportunities for $25-$100 surveys).
  • American Consumer Opinion – This survey website is open to people worldwide! They never seem to have a shortage of surveys to take.
  • Prolific Academic – High paying surveys and low payment threshold!

Now let’s get right to it! Here are survey websites that will pay you through PayPal:

Survey Junkie

Survey Junkie home page

Survey Junkie is my favorite website for taking surveys! They always have a ton of surveys to take, they tell you EXACTLY how long each survey will take (and how much you’ll earn), and they also have a lot of opportunities for higher-paying surveys and focus groups.

Who’s Eligible: If you’re over 18 and located in the US, UK, Canada, or Australia, you can earn money on Survey Junkie.

How Much You Can Earn: You can earn on average $1-$5 per survey. They also have opportunities for higher-paying surveys ($25-$100), online focus groups, testing free products.

American Consumer Opinion

American Consumer Opinion is a survey panel that has been around since 1986! They always have a ton of surveys to do, and one of the great things about American Consumer Opinion is that it’s open to people worldwide!

If you only decide to signup for ONE survey website on this list. PLEASE pick this one. Prolific Academic probably has the best-paying (good rate for the length of the survey) surveys that I’ve seen, they have a lower threshold for payment, and after you redeem 3 separate payments you can begin getting instant payments!

  1. It’s definitely possible to make money with surveys. One bit of advice though… I highly recommend using a throwaway email when you sign up for any paid survey site. Some of them sell user data (like names and email addresses.) So, you can expect to start getting marketing messages at whichever address you use.
