Good Paid Surveys for Irish Residents

Updated on May 22, 2019

If, like me, you have searched the internet for ways of making money online through completing surveys, then you will probably realise how tedious it is.

There are plenty of survey panels that you can join because they say they are an international company. Great, you will think, but you will never receive any surveys from these companies because you will not fit their demographic.

So i have decided to compile a list of survey companies that you can join and WILL receive a steady stream of surveys to complete and therefore make money.

Now don't get me wrong, you will not make that much but i have come to realise that every little helps and can go a long way towards special times of the year when you do need extra money as I will explain further later.

Irish Opinions

Hassle free registration which takes about 5 minutes to complete using basic information. An activation email is then sent to you. After that you will be eligible to receive surveys, but I advise you to complete the rest of profiles that are available on the members page so that you will receive surveys that are of interest to you.

You will receive anywhere from 75c for a short survey and up to €5 for the much longer ones. Most though, are usually about €1.50. Once you have €10 in your account, you can can claim a rewards voucher for either, Amazon, Boots, Tesco's, WOW HD or you could if you wanted donate the rewards to world vision.

Payment for each completed survey goes onto your account within a few days and the vouchers arrive quite quickly after you have applied for them.

Overall, they are not bad.

Red C Live

Red C Live is one of the best paid survey sites. You will earn €1 for every 5 minutes of your time. For example, if a survey is about 15 minutes long you will receive €3. The email you receive for each survey will tell you how long approximately the survey should take and the monetary value.

You cannot cash out until your account has reached €50. This may seem high but it is a good amount to receive in one lump and you do get paid by cheque. This takes about two weeks to arrive.

I would highly recommend joining this site.

Acumen Panel

This site is also well paid operating in much the same way as Red C. but instead of cash you receive points. These are known as share points and you will receive 100 points for every 5 minutes of approximate survey time. For example, a survey with an estimated completion time
of 15 minutes, you will receive 300 share points. Every 100 share points is the equivilant of €1

Once your account has reached 1000 share points you can redeem your points.Now this is where it differs from other sites. Once you have clicked the REDEEM YOUR POINTS button you will receive an email with a voucher code for All and a link to the site. Once there you will have to set up an account, which is very straight forward. You then click REDEEM MY VOUCHER and you will be asked to enter the code. The value then goes on to your account. This amount will stay there until you decide to spend it on one of the many gifts available. So, you could just keep adding your voucher codes and increasing your balance if you wanted to save for something special.

It does sound a little complicated but it is quite straight forward once you have done it the 1st time.

I would highly recommend joining this site.

Shop and

Shop and scan is Irelands leading market research survey panel which measures the purchasing habits of housedholds across Ireland.

This site is very different from other survey sites. YOU WILL HAVE TO APPLY and it could take a while to be accepted.

If you are lucky enough to be accepted you will receive an email outlining your acceptance. You will then receive scanning eqipment. It looks a bit like a hands free phone. This is placed in a charger that has to be connected to the electricity supply at all times as they gather the information remotely.

Once you have received your scanner you are ready to go. All you have to do is scan the codes on all of your grocery shopping, just like they do in the supermarkets.

Every month you will receive points. Once you get to 1000 points, you can redeem them for a rewards voucher. These can be for stores including Argos, Currys, Woodies DIY, Debenhams and Halfords. You can even get Amazon voucher codes if you wanted, though these are only available for €15.

On occasion you will receive online surveys to complete for extra points. They even give you 1000 points (€10) on your birthday and an extra 2000 at Christmas long as you scan all of your Christmas shopping.

This is a great site if you can get accepted.


You will probably have heard of this site if you have searched for online surveys. On this site you will receive points for every survey completed.

You cannot redeem points until have reached 60,000 and then it is only for a voucher to the value of €15, so it does take a long time time to reach this target when most of the surveys are only valued between 2,000 and 4,000 points. There are specialist surveys for 10,000 points but these a few and far between.

You can boost your points on the site by completing polls and writing "topics" but you are limited to how many you can write in a month.

I personally don't like this site as the remuneration is very low when you work out points awarded versus time to complete but if you are willing to spend time on the site itself boosting your points then it is worth a try.

I hope you find this information helpful and also be assured there are no affiliate links in the companies posted as this is against the rules for this type of hub.
