Have you ever heard about making money by giving your opinions about a product or company?
Yes, you can earn money by answering those simple questions. Those series of questions is called a paid survey.
Paid surveys are one of the easiest ways to make money online for beginners if they join in good paying sites.
There are many paid survey sites on the internet but not all paid survey sites are legit. There are some scams too. But don’t worry. In this post, I will suggest you the legit paid survey sites to start making money online from home.
Before, looking on the top paid survey sites, I will offer you some simple tricks to check if a site is legit or scam.
Tricks to identify scam sites to avoid time and energy loss:
1) Legit paid survey sites are always free to join:
If you find any paid survey site asking you pay $$ for the membership then you can clearly identify that it is a scam site.
Because all legit survey sites are free to join. Paid survey sites make money from the company which conducts this survey. And you don’t have to pay money to them.
2) Check for the availability of payment proofs online
This is another easiest way to check if a site pays its users or not. Just Google Search payment proofs for the particular paid survey site.
Use this syntax ” Payment proofs + Paid Survey site ”
If you don’t find any payment proofs online for the particular survey site, then it is clear that it is a scam site.
3) Too much of ads on the website isn’t good:
If you find a paid survey site with too much of ads, then you must think about avoiding the particular site.
Because all legit paying survey sites avoid this excessive ad on their website. This isn’t an exact method to identify whether a site is legit or scam, but it indirectly marks a scam.
Now, let’s have a look at the top paid survey sites of 2018.
