    I have been looking for a second online opportunity, which pays off well.

    I've come across many survey sites (like surveyscout, surveysavvy etc.) And I've come across Paidsurveysetc and other similar sites.

    My question is, are they worth registering? If I register with some 20 sites, can I get $100 monthly? (This amount excludes sales)

    I have already registered with 5 or 6 sites, but I am occasionally invited for surveys. And rarely I qualify for those invited surveys.

    When this is the situation, why some sites ask us to pay fees? Will those companies invite Indians? (I see most offers are limited to US / UK)

    Anybody here to answer?

    No, no chance to make any money from surveys sites unless you are american, and want to put good hours of work, and have a lot of patience.

    Surveys work best for the "Stay@Home Mom" crowd - and no one else really.

    They want that kinda data more than anything else.

    Paid Surveys is just a dream otherwise on the most part.

    The money in surveys is getting an affiliate link and referring other people with nothing better to do.

    I think I remember reading that you generally make about $1.15 an hour. There are sites like freelunchroom.com/boards where you get paid to fill out forms and offers. At least there you can make a couple hundred bucks a week.

    If you like dropping 12 hours a day for a few dollars, then yes you should pursue it. There are plenty of companies out there that WILL pay you, I know from experience. However, the amount of effort you put in doesn't match how much you ever want to make. If your time is worth 40 cents an hour then you should definitely do it.

    I used to do these surveys years ago but I find that most companies don't send out surveys often enough, and that you don't qualify for many of them.

    The worst experience I had was when one company sent me a survey, I filled in page after page for 30 min (I thought I would've qualified at this point), and THEN it kicked me out of the survey and said i didn't qualify :mad:

    The only way you can make money with these survey sites is to refer lots of people who do nothing but fill this things out every day. I think Survey Savvy has the referrer rates.

    Surveys are set-up so that the creator always get a massive return before you will make anything substantial. Perhaps starting up your own survey web site would be a better way to make money from surveys, otherwise it's just not worth the time. You could earn more money a day working at Mc Donalds than you could trying to make money from surveys in one day.

    dont waste your precious time with "paid surveys, paid to click, paid 2 read emails, etc." I know from experience that they're all just scams, and even if they were real you're getting paid so little that it's not worth it.
