Triaba Review International Paid Survey Site.jpg



Lately, looking for good online survey jobs has become so tough that I’m beginning to believe there are no more left of them. I don’t think I’m being unreasonable about finding surveys for money that is worth my time and effort. You know what I mean, the survey panels of the kind that:
  • Pays well
  • Doesn’t get you screened out in the middle or tail-end of a survey
  • Doesn’t require an unreasonable minimum payout amount
  • Is available internationally
  • Was good when it first started out, and is still good at present
  • Is fun and entertaining.
Those aren’t unreasonable requirements, right? Especially since we’ve come across paid survey or GPT sites in the past that actually have all, or at least several of those qualities combined. But since I’ve made it my personal mission to keep my eyes peeled and my ears alert to potentially good survey panels available to EVERYONE, I will continue to do so even though I’ve gotten disappointed so many times.

In this manner, I came across Triaba, because a friend has been on it for a year and recommended it to me. In this article, I aim to explore what makes it a legit survey site, or if there is a potential for it to be a scam.

First things first - what is it?

Triaba is a paid survey panel that promises users earnings between $0.50 to $5.5 for each completed online survey. It is available in 63 countries all over the world, from Argentina to Lithuania, through to Venezuela.

It truly is a survey site in every sense of the word, because there are no other tasks available in it for users except to complete surveys! The website’s home page features both Google Play and App Store buttons on it, but when I clicked on them, I was directed to pages for Opinion APP, so I’m just going to assume they are one and the same company*.

(*I was right, upon closer inspection. Both are owned and operated by Cint AB, a company specializing in market research.)

How long has it been around?

Triaba is based in Norway and was founded on June 9, 2009 (which I find surprising because I’ve never heard about them until my friend brought Triaba up!).

Is registration free?

Yes, signing up is free and there are no maintaining fees required. You simply have to fill out the signup form (kind of like a pre-qualification process to determine what kind of surveys you will be a good fit with) with basic info before clicking “submit”. A special note: Triaba pays via PayPal so make sure to sign up using the same email you use to transact with PayPal.

How do I start earning extra income from Triaba?

After your email confirmation, Triaba will start sending invitations to complete surveys via email. Surveys can be expected within two weeks of signing up, but if your profile is generally a good fit with what their market research requires, you might get invitations for surveys a lot sooner than that. Under their FAQs, Triaba advises to expect anywhere between one to seven surveys per month.

As well, their Facebook page, blog, and Twitter are pretty active in announcing current competitions and how to join them. Prizes to these competitions are usually PayPal cash payments or gift vouchers. You can also check out new survey panel announcements in your country via these social media sites.

Does it pay well?

As previously mentioned, completing a survey on Triaba can earn you anywhere between $0.50 to $5.5, depending on the length, complexity, the company requiring it, and other issues of the survey. Aside from PayPal cashouts, there is now a choice to get Amazon gift cards (at least in the US). I would venture to say that this is the going rate of most survey sites I’ve joined, anyway. There is no general information on the payout threshold before you can cash out, but I’m guessing it depends on your country, though from US- user feedback it’s around $5.

So far, there are more good feedback and reviews about how honest the site’s expectations are, how much they compensate, and the overall “transparency” of Triaba when it comes to paying people, compared to complaints about issues with it. Actually, I have yet to find a single complaint about not getting paid, or getting screened out during a survey! Based on the correspondence on Facebook, Triaba seems to take any kind of question or review seriously by trying to answer them one by one.

The verdict?

Triaba is definitely legit, and even complies and adheres to the AAPOR Code (American Association for Public Opinion Research) and follows ESOMAR's Code of Conduct. The only issue I have with them is the lack of a referral system, but it’s actually kind of refreshing to discover that an international survey site has been around for some time now, and allowing people to earn a decent amount of extra income without going through the hassle of getting continuously screened out or disqualified.

I have just checked and it seems the site is open in my country and it seems a good one to join. Probably I won't receive survey frequently but I really don't mind as long as it is achievable. do they send the surveys to our email or do we need to log in the site to check if there are surveys available to answer?

I joined, you had me at Doesn’t get you screened out in the middle or tail-end of a survey. Right now I am filling out all the profile questions. I see it did ask for my cell number, do you know if they send the surveys out to your cell? Or can I do them on the computer. I have a very basic cell and if thats the case I probably wont be able to do them :(

so this is a bit misleading :(

My first survey disqualified me, so I guess it IS like other survey sites :(

And the email says "The survey takes approximately 5 minutes and if you successfully complete it, your account will be credited with 0.50 USD. "

I'm sorry if my review seems to have misled you, but the initial paragraph where that particular bullet point you quoted meant to convey the kind of survey site I was looking for

Oh, that is sad. I wish there were more survey sites where you could not be disqualified. Just like on PaidViewPoint.

Thanks for the Triaba review, Nick!

Yeah, the list of items at the start of the review were more a wishlist, than a list of stuff Triaba actually had. With that said, I might as well chime in and share the things I like to see in a survey site:

1. Low minimum payout.

2. You don’t get screened out — or if you do, you still get a nominal fee.

3. Lots of earning methods, especially referral program. Referral programs are very important to me — I’m pretty notorious among my friends. They’ve nicknamed me “The Coffee Guy” because I’m always asking them out to coffee to talk about whatever new survey site I’ve found. But they suffer me well.

Anyway, Triaba is legit. But I still think there’s room for improvement. They pay a few cents to a couple of dollars per survey, which is kind of standard for a survey site.

I do wish they’d add more features to their site. Surveys are awesome and all, but other sites, like GrabPoints , introduce alternate ways to earn. In 2018, simply providing surveys doesn’t cut it. Sure, I’ll use your site for a while, but I keep gravitating towards sites that offer more earning methods. Because more earning methods simply means greater earning potential.

But overall, no complaints. Triaba is a legit site that will pay you legit money. But I would consider Triaba a “back-up” site. It’s good to check out once in a while, or when I don’t qualify for surveys on other sites. But they’re rarely the first site I sign-in to at the start of the day.

It doesn't sound like a bad site at all. I am on many different survey sites already but I would not mind checking this site out as well.
