Do you need a paypal account to be paid for surveys

Updated on May 4, 2011

Do you need a paypal account to be paid for surveys

The Answer is NO

Pay Pal is not the only way to be paid. Although, Pay Pal is a good easy and free way for survey companies to pay you. It also offers you secure 100% protection against any unauthorized payments sent from your account. It is available for use in 55 countries, and is free. You can sign up and only takes a few minutes to start selling or buying with Pay Pal on the Internet.Some companies will make payments for completed surveys, by check, gifts, Internet banking, Pay Pal, or vouchers. Each individual survey company will advertise on their website what type of payment they offer to their clients.

Try all or any of these:

WDYT earns you points for their completed surveys/

Opinions paid will send surveys and when completed they earn you zoints, which are similar to points; you can redeem these for items of your choice.

Email cash is a great survey company. You can earn points by doing surveys, buying on line, referrals, and many other ways. The points can be converted into cash, or you can bank and earn more money, when you have earned more than $31 they can post you a check.

I trust this will help you in your search, with earning money or gifts for doing online surveys. Pay Pal is not the only way to to be paid for surveys.

      Yes I'm still dancing! So it sounds like surveys are a fair option for people who aren't confident writing, but if you can write you can do better.

      Hi Eileen, are you still finding survey companies are profitable? I tried joining a few at one time, but I never got offered any surveys. It seems like they just don't want females over 50!

      Voiceofpraise, yes it is very handy for that, and a lot safer than other ways of paying for things.

      I have had a pay pal account for several years. It is a great way to pay for items online and receive money for services provided and items sold. It can also be used to receive money from family or friends who also have pay pal accounts and it costs nothing to send money this way! Great site.

      Paypal paid surveys transfer 

      10 years ago

      I think paypal is a great way for rewards to be paid and not just that, paypal is a very flexable payment format and makes buying and selling easy on the internet compared to credit cards etc. As an owner of a website on paid surveys amoungst other things i find paypal the safer choice compared to traditional methods and always recommend to my visitors, not to use credit cards if you dont have to. Thats not saying there isnt a risk with keyloggers on paypal accounts but all your eggs in one basket in this case is certainly safer. Im also an experienced pc security fan so using the latest programs with a seal of approval from most of the world helps.

      Yes I know what you are saying. Cheques cost a fortune when u have a small business and they send $5 ones. Not worth it it cost us more.

      I have a pay pal account. It is easy to be paid.

      I do think eight days to free someone's cheques is a long time

      They are not free when you receive the money

      Still it is quick and easy
