Top 10 Survey Sites to Make Money Online in India

I have a question for you before we start our discussion. Do you have a lot of patience? If your answer is NO, you can skip the whole discussion and choose some other online work for you. Joining survey websites is not a get-rich-quick program. You need to have a lot of patience, especially if you are from India, as you will not have surveys to do all the time. Most reputable survey sites are only available to residents of the US, UK, and Canada. There are very few sites that are available for international users. My advice to people who want to join survey sites   –

Don’t just join 2 or 3 survey sites, join 10-15 survey sites instead. Doing this ensures that you will have something to do all the time.

best survey sites in India

Let’s discuss how much one can earn from survey sites. This is how it works according to me-

  • Suppose if one joins 10 survey sites and he is making INR 500 from each then he can accumulate 10*500=5000 INR per month which can be considered a good amount for a student to begin with.

Here are the 10 best survey sites in India – 

1. Pawns App is the youngest survey site on this list but has rapidly gained traction in no time, positioning itself among the leading survey sites not only in India but also other countries. You get an attractive $1 as a sign-up bonus. The payout threshold is just $5, which you can easily hit by completing 3-4 surveys.

There are three ways you can make money with

  • Share Your Internet Connection: Let the app work its magic in the background while you’re online. Stay connected longer, earn more! Share 1 GB of data, get around $0.20, and bonus $0.20 for long hours. The amount may vary depending on your location.
  • Complete Paid Surveys: You can expect to score $2 per survey on average, and they won’t eat up more than 30 minutes.
  • Referral Program: Spread the word to your friends, and they get $1 for signing up! Plus, you get $1 when they cash out their first bucks, and 15% of what they make.

Payment Methods for Indian users-

  • PayPal – Minimum payout is only $5.


2. Toluna has become one of my favorite survey sites. It’s more like a social networking website as you can follow people, they can follow you back and even you can post messages on their wall. You can express yourself by creating polls and topics on their website. Toluna has been very consistent in terms of both paying and providing surveys. There are 3 types of opportunities to make money on Toluna-

  • By participating in paid survey or profile survey

Known Scam Survey Websites 

Not every survey site pays. Some websites pay at starting but stop paying eventually. Scam survey sites extract money out of you instead of paying you. I myself have been part of scammer websites and don’t want you to waste your valuable time on those. Here is the list of scam survey websites –

  1. Please do not join India speaks. It is a fraud company. There is a female named Ms.Tanya Basu who is just non cooperative.

    When you ask for the refund/gifts she send an email citing technical reasons/ wait for 2-3 weeks and so on…please avoid it.

    1. sudhir sheoran

      Sad to hear your problem. May be you are right but Let me tell you my experience with Ms. Tanya Basu. I have emailed her about 15 times so far. She replies almost 90% of my emails, although not with a great solution every time but she does reply.

    2. Hi
      India speaks is one among the best paying survey sites
      for less time you are being paid good rewards
      Its now good with recent paytm attached to it
      and i love it

    3. Yes you are right sunny. India speaks is a fraud company. Despite completing more than 10 surveys, I still have not received any payment/vouchers. Ms.Tanya Basu always sends recorded emails…technical issue, it is processing etc.

      Avoid registering on India speaks.

    4. I don’t agree with you. Its not a fraud company. I agree that it takes long time to send u the gift card than other sites but it will definitely give u the voucher. I have redeemed the points for lifestyle voucher, paytm, cash card and amazon voucher and i have successfully got them.

  2. Not satisfied with Indiaspeaks.. Not fraud but can’t qualify for surveys.. 🙁 I think it’s a time waste site with not a single point to disqualiers..

  3. poonam shankar shivnani

        Bless … Thanks …..

  4. Hi team, I need a genuine part time online work without any investment. I have good experience in data entry. So can some one suggest me. I stay in Noida.

  5. The Panel Station survey is full of shit. You spend your valued time on any particular survey for 2 hours and in the end not paid due to technical reasons is the email reply received from them. Again asking you to re attempt the whole boring survey. Keep away. Only if you have a lot of time to waste you can empanel. Long hourly survey s and payout is pathetic.


  6. The only most trusted genuine site is telly pulse which pays you for taking a survey but you should have lot of patience because hardly you can earn 700 to 900 rs per month.You will get only upto 6 surveys per month and i recommend to join this to earn a petty cash.This is the only site from which i have redeemed the gift voucher.Even the view point panel can be a trusted one.

  7. viewfruit is a fraud.they are not paying.i had requested for payments when ever i reached the maximum poins.they have never paid me they dont tell me the genuine reason i have been writting to them many times but .the have given 4 reasons for the nonpayment.they are not giving any specific reason and not ready to help.their account shows they they have made the payment

    1. I placed request on 17th January and I got my on 28th January. Anyway, what are those 4 reasons for nonpayment. Someone might help you. If their account shows that they have made the payment means they have paid and they only pay via PayPal. Have you Checked if you have mentioned correct PayPal Email Id in Viewfruit’s payment section.




    1. 2900 points can not be redeemed. However you can buy Gifties. Go to your profile and click on gifty you want to open to check if you won or not.

  9. About Globaltestmarket survey rewards, you have mentioned that: “Once you reach 1000 points, you can withdraw $50 (around 3000)”
    This is incorrect. I have checked that site & its’ Rewards section states that for 1412 points earned, you can get the Indian Rupee equivalent of US $ 20 via Paypal.

    1. I think you have checked at wrong place. Log into your globaltestmarket account. Click on rewards. Click on “redeem” button. You will be redirected to You get $20 for 480 market points.

      1. NO thats not true Sudhir Sheoran, I am a member of GTM from past 5 years.
        In the previous 6 months the valued of 10$ was 706 ponits.
        And 20$ was 1412
        And the value of 10$ = 806 points.
        20$= 1612 points
        It keeps on changing.
        please be updated

        1. I redeemed 1017 points on 20 March, 2017. Check out this screenshot. 1017 points = 3 myntra gift card (worth 900) + 3 PayPal Gift Card (worth $30). Do you still have any question?

          1. I dont have any question but I think you are not in India right now.
            Because Myntra vouchers of rs 300 = 330 ponits
            & paypal 10$ = 806 points

  10. Hi

    1. how can I earn from survey site please suggest a genuine website which pays for the survey, please help me by answering.

  12. I have been using Survey Savvy for almost 2 years and for a while they were paying out pretty good for access to my e-mails and junk mail. Recently I had problems with them and some (not very bright) account manager that could never tell me if my pc was hooked up. I realized it wasn’t when no money was going to my account. I’ll stick to the $1 surveys for now. Opinion Outpost and My survey have been pretty good. I close out of the site if I am disqualified for 4 surveys in a row. But I just cashed out Opin Outpost for $60 and I am almost up to $50 on My Survey. It takes me about 2 months to earn these.

  13. Hi, I want to join work from home online job, which is best for indian to earn more and regularly and which is the best company to join plz suggest, i am new to all these types, i am a medical transcriptionist.

  14. I love to fill surveys of india speaks.

  18. X-cel online Surveys is fraud site for taking surveys. Twice I have requested for INR 100 each in paytm and both times I have just waited and waited without any result. It only shows in their site that they have paid you but never displays anything in paytm message or transaction. Their support system is also deaf and cunning. They are taking your hard worked money and effort for their own profit. Please do not ever join X-cel online Surveys site. It’s fraud.

  19. Is it right to be a member of multiple survey sites ?

    What if there is overlapping of surveys or data collection ?

    Please address this question at the earliest .

    1. sudhir sheoran

      Its completely fine to be a member of multiple survey sites.By overlapping of surveys, do you mean what if you get same survey from 2 survey sites?

  20. Rakuten Insight Survey is also very trustable website without a doubt as I have redeemed gift vouchers from it.

  21. Very informative and educative peice of writing which showed me the right way. Based on your site list I joined a few survey sites on the Dhanteras Day to start my online earnings life. Thank you sir. Please keep up the good work. This is a real selfless bit of social service you are doing. God bless you. Kaushik Bhowal.

  22. Swagbucks is very nice site.It help all the people.I useing and benefit got.It also very trustable website without a doubt as I have redeemed gift vouchers from it.

  23. It seems very tough to earn 1 dollars from swagbucks. I am an indian. Is there any way to get paid of rs 500 per month from swagbucks?

  24. I’m so glad to see that there are so many survey sites out there that will allow you to make money online in India! I’m definitely going to be checking out a few of them!

  25. Amit kumar Ghatak
