For today’s review, I’ll be covering a survey site with an odd name: myiyo. If you’ve heard about this site and wondered whether myiyo is legit or not, check out this myiyo review to find out!
Myiyo: First Impressions
I really like how this site looks. It’s got a fresh, pastel-y design. The site is clean and easy on the eyes. Content is also pretty good. The text is arranged neatly, and it’s easy to find the information you’re looking for.
The site has a bit of a European vibe… and that’s because it is European! Myiyo (pronounced “my eye oh”, which is a partial abbreviation of its original name “in your opinion”) is based in Düsseldorf, Germany. They’re owned by the global market research firm mo’web research.
Myiyo has been operating for 10 years, and in that time has processed millions of surveys.
They claim that you can earn about 20 Euro every few months. I actually like the fact that they’re no-nonsense and don’t try to impress you with figures that are too good to be true.
My Hot Take: An excellent first impression. Germans are renowned for making excellent cars. But does that translate to survey sites as well? Let’s dive down further, shall we?
How to Earn
Myiyo is a survey site. You complete surveys, and you earn points for each one you complete. Pretty simple, right? Let’s explore this in a bit more detail.
First, you sign up (which I’ll be talking about later on). Once you’ve registered, you are not obligated to do anything further… but we came here to earn, and you’ll have to complete surveys to do that. The cool part is, you’ll earn bonus points just by activating your account via email and completing the profile questionnaire.
The profile questionnaire is used to determine which demographic you fit in. The site needs this info in order to give you surveys that are appropriate to you. For example, if there’s a survey about outdoor gear, it’ll assign it to you if you’re an athletic, outdoorsy type.
With that said, would still get disqualified from some surveys. It sucks when it happens, but don’t take it personally. It means the site reached a certain quota while you were taking it. Sadly, you won’t get paid for whatever progress you’ve made with it.
Myiyo has a pretty sweet referral program going on. For each friend you refer to the site, you will earn 500 points. To discourage members from making multiple fake accounts, your referrals need to complete one survey first before you can get your bonus earnings.
My Hot Take: The earning methods on myiyo are pretty one-dimensional. You get the surveys as the only main earning method. I would have liked to see more options - or even a nominal payment if you get disqualified while taking a survey - but at least there’s a referral program.
Earning Potential on myiyo
Each survey you complete will pay you, on average, 500 to 1,000 points. A thousand points is equal to 1 Euro in real-world money. These surveys usually have around 20 questions and take about 10 minutes to complete.
You will also earn 100 points for activating your email address, and another 500 points for completing your profile questionnaire. So that’s 600 points just for completing your profile!
Overall, your own earnings will depend on how many surveys you qualify for, and the amount of time you can dedicate to completing them. But myiyo’s claim of 20 Euro every other month is pretty accurate, in my experience.
My Hot Take: The earning potential on myiyo isn’t bad, but it isn’t stellar either. It’s pretty middle of the road.
Payout Options on myiyo
Once you’ve accumulated at least 20,000 points, or 20 Euro, you can withdraw your earnings via PayPal. If you complete lots of surveys, you can move up to a higher loyalty level. When you do, the minimum withdrawal will be lowered to 10,000 points.
Even when lowered to 10,000 points, I think their minimum withdrawal requirements are a bit high. And take note, it could take them anywhere from 1 to 5 weeks to process your earnings!
My Hot Take: My feelings for this site are beginning to sour. The minimum withdrawal is a bit hard to hit, and the waiting time for your earnings is way too long.

The Verdict: Legit or Scam?
Myiyo is legit! But a bit lackluster, especially with long processing times. If you’re looking for a site to try out, go give myiyo a spin. But manage your expectations accordingly.
