How does it work?
Major companies want to understand what their consumers think about their products and services. To do this they hire survey companies to ask people like you for your thoughts and opinions, in the form of online surveys.
To thank you for providing your valuable opinions, companies are willing to reward you with cash, gift vouchers and other rewards. You won't get rich from doing online surveys, but if you like to earn extra cash for giving your opinions, you've come to the right place!
SurveyCompare continuously searches the fairest, most trusted and most rewarding paid survey companies, and lets you easily join them all in one go. There is no catch, and best of all, it's free!
How do I get started?
Joining is quick and easy! Simply click "Sign Up and Start Earning" above, then select the available survey companies from the list. Fill in the form on the final page and click register to complete your free sign up.
You'll receive emails from the survey companies asking you to confirm your registration – simply follow the links to confirm, and you're now ready to start earning!
You will now be receiving regular survey invites straight to your e-mail inbox. Take part in as many surveys as you choose to, and get rewarded for each one!
How many surveys will I be asked to complete?
This depends on the demand that the Survey Companies have for people like you (age and gender in particular) at any particular time so it's difficult to be specific. Having said this, in our experience, on average you will receive around 5 invites per month from each Survey Company.
Of course, by joining multiple panels you have the opportunity to take more surveys and pick and choose the ones that reward you best.
Do I have to pay anything?
No. We will never charge you for using SurveyCompare, and neither will the survey companies we introduce to you. The market research companies want to reward you for taking surveys, not charge you for becoming a member!
Any website that asks for money in return for surveys should be treated with extreme caution. We are able to offer this service for free as we receive support from the survey companies we recommend, as well as donations.
Is this all online?
Yes, this is all online, and all the surveys you will be asked to complete will be online from your computer.
How much can I earn?
How much you earn will depend on how many companies you choose to sign up to and how much time you want to spend taking surveys. If you want to maximise your earnings, we advise that you sign up to as many survey panels as you can.
Paid surveys can earn you up to £5, as well as more for specialist surveys. Other Survey Companies will also reward you with gift vouchers, points redeemable for cash and entries into competitions. You can view detailed information about each survey company on our Survey Comparison page.
We always tell people that doing paid surveys will make you "pocket money", not a full-time salary. We would strongly advise you to stay clear of any websites that claim you can get rich by taking paid surveys.
How will I be paid?
Many cash-paying survey companies pay you via PayPal (a free online account that allows you to easily and safely receive money electronically). If you don't have a PayPal account, there are usually alternative methods of receiving your earnings, such as cash cheques. Gift certificates and vouchers will usually be sent by email.
No, this is not a scam. We are a real company based in North London (3 Wilkin Street, London, NW5 3NL) and we provide a valuable and well-established service that connects survey takers with legitimate Survey Companies. Neither us nor the survey companies will ever ask you for any money. You are in control at all times, and you are under no obligation. If you are still unsure, feel free to give us a ring at 020 7424 3137 during office hours and we'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
How does SurveyCompare make money?
This website is supported by the market research companies that we recommend as well as donations. Together these enable us to provide an excellent, free, no-obligation service at no cost to you.
Are my details safe?
Yes, your details are safe. Your details will not be given to 3rd parties without your consent. Your details will only be held by us and any Survey Company that you choose to sign up with. You are free to unsubscribe from survey invites from any of these companies at any time. All Survey Companies we work with are large, highly reputable market research organisations.
Is there a contract?
No. There are no contracts that tie you in. You are under no obligation with any of the Survey Companies that we introduce you to and you can stop participating at any time. You can easily unsubscribe from survey invites by clicking the 'unsubscribe' link which you will find at the bottom of the email invites you receive.
How old do I have to be?
If you are 16 or above, you can join any of the paid survey panels on offer. However some companies have a minimum age as low as 13 or 14 – you can find out which ones when you are choosing the survey companies.
What if I have other questions?
We are more than happy to answer any other questions you may have, or hear your feedback or suggestions about our website. Just send us an email to email@example.com and we'll be happy to help!
