In the world of paid survey sites, people understandably flock towards those endorsed by satisfied members, as well as by respected reviewers and through forum recommendations. It seems that longevity also plays a big factor. Those sites that have been around for at least a decade usually have the lion’s share of members because of their track record of payments, along with having a reliable system in place.
So when it comes to a relatively new paid survey site like Surveyeah, people understandably have doubts about its legitimacy. For starters, there isn’t enough member feedback to gauge the user experience - at least not yet. For another, personally testing the waters by joining up could mean precious time and effort wasted in pursuit of more widely endorsed GPT sites. There’s always a learning curve involved with every new survey site, which could become costly for users in the long run.
At any rate, let’s hope we can get to the bottom of what makes it legit or a scam in this Surveyeah review today.
First things first - what is it?
Obviously, it’s a paid survey site where members from all over the world can earn from answering different surveys from “international groups”, as the Surveyeah website puts it. Established and registered in Milan, Italy, this is a refreshingly honest survey panel that describes its user experience thusly:
“Although we will probably not make you rich, we will always be upfront with you and we hope to give you a hand with our articles and convey positivity, something that we need more and more of these days.”
How long has it been around?
Surveyeah became active only in February 2014, which is pretty late compared to others that have been around since the mid-2000s (or earlier). However, they are currently available in 57 countries (5 continents!) all over the world, which gives better opportunities for places outside the US and UK to earn some money on the side.
One upside I see to this being a new-ish paid survey site is how navigable its website is. Everything is in its proper place, including FAQs, with all possible user concerns answered in a straightforward, no-nonsense manner. The whole look is uncluttered and actually helpful (and it’s a bonus that their logo has a cute monkey on it, too).
Does it pay well?
One of the FAQs states that each completed survey can earn you somewhere between £0.25 and £4, which looks to be what other paid survey sites offer anyway. Again, the rates depend on a variety of factors such as the length, complexity, and demographics of the market researcher’s demands.
As previously mentioned, the owners and admin of Surveyeah do not give any false hopes of anyone joining that they can give up their day jobs or better-earning gigs by dedicating more hours answering surveys with them. The email invites for surveys could come at a weekly rate, or between two and four times a month depending on customer demand. So yeah, not a lot of opportunities to fill them out, and since it’s primarily surveys you will be doing with Surveyeah, there is quite a bit of wait time in-between completing surveys.
There’s a payment threshold of 10€ (different countries might have different thresholds, though), which you can choose to have converted via PayPal, redeem for an Amazon gift voucher, and in the near future, even download for eBooks or donate to charity.
Is registration free?
Registration is free, but you have to make sure to register with the email you use for PayPal transactions, otherwise, it could pose complications in payouts. Users aged 18 and above from the selected countries indicated on the Surveyeah list can register.
How do I start earning extra income from Surveyeah?
There seems to be a rewarded referral system in place, but right now it only works in Italy (boo!) though the site promises to roll this scheme out internationally soon. As soon as you log in, you will see a couple of surveys under the blog, which you can choose to answer - but I’m here to warn you that you won’t be making any money with those. Paid surveys are only sent to members via email, and they usually cover the topics compatible with your preferences.
With its simple and navigable system plus convenient PayPal payment platform (that has one of the strictest compliance systems around), I would say that Surveyeah is a legit paid survey site. Right now it seems more like a work in progress than an established site to make some money from, but over time I’m hoping there will be more opportunities to earn with them.
With that said, it’s too early for me to tell if it’s a good survey site - you know, the kind you can actually earn a passive income from, and something that’s worth your extra time? A user testimonial page or a compilation of payouts could help the site, but at the moment, user satisfaction is hard to gauge with the absence of those features.
One thing it doesn’t do though is over-promise, which is a refreshing change from those that falsely advertise how much you can earn with them.
