There are lots of survey sites out on the internet. A lot of them are legit, but there are also a few bad apples in the mix. I’ve encountered my share of scam sites, and it’s a really sucky feeling getting scammed. You put in all this time doing surveys and other tasks, and in then the scammers bounce without paying you.
I don’t want anybody else to go through the same experience, which is why I’ve been sharing my opinions on various survey sites. This time I’ll be discussing Get-Paid. Is it legit or is it a scam? Read on to find out!
How to Earn on Get-Paid
There are two ways to get paid on Get-Paid. The first one is by earning coins, and the second one is by winning them.
Coins are what Get-Paid calls points. You earn coins by doing any of the following tasks:
- Completing surveys
- Watching videos
- Taking offers
- Transcribing text
- Download and use Get-Paid’s proprietary toolbar
- Make outgoing calls to companies
- Do data entry (Such as adding info on business cards onto a spreadsheet)
As for winning coins, the site occasionally gives bonus coins via games and contests. It’s nice to have but consider it just that - a bonus. You still have to rely on doing tasks to make a sufficient amount of coins.
What Makes Get-Paid Unique?
The site allows you to level up by accumulating experience points (XPs) as you complete tasks. Anyone who’s played role-playing games online will be familiar with this concept.
Each time you gather enough XP you are promoted to the next level. The more prolific you are, the faster you will get bumped up.
Levelling-up opens up a host of features and benefits. These perks include getting higher points for each task completed, and getting paid faster.
You can also earn badges for certain accomplishments like using the site for one week straight or completing a certain number of tasks. These badges don’t give you any actual perks, they just give you a bit of cred within the Get-Paid community.
Using your site profile, you can add friends and chat with them, just like in a social media site.
Overall, I think all these methods are great ways to make people stay loyal to the site.
How to Get Paid
As soon as you have a minimum amount of coins worth $1, you can request a cash-out. I like how the minimum amount is low, but I tend to save up more money before cashing-out. Once you make a request the funds will be sent within 24 hours.
Payment can be made in the following methods:
The Get-Paid Referral System
Every good survey site has a referral system, and Get-Paid is no exception. For every friend you successfully recruit to the site, you get 30% of the coins they earn.
While most sites allow you to get a commission down multiple levels of recruits, in Get-Paid, you only make money off your direct recruit and the second level. It’s slightly disappointing because it can be difficult to get people onboard.
Pros and Cons of Get-Paid
In the interest of making this a balanced review, here’s what I think is good and not-so-good about Get-Paid.
- Lot of ways to earn
- The XP system is a great way to boost earnings
- The company is pretty professional
- Payment processing is fast and accurate
- It takes a while to earn a substantial amount of money
Get-Paid is a legit site! I’m a fan of how the site operates. I’ve never had a problem with my points or payment processing. I’m super-impressed!
It may take a while to accumulate enough points to make cashing out worthwhile. Just remember to put in the time.
