Out of hundreds of online paid survey sites, most of them are mere scams or online frauds. I was also a victim of these fake survey sites. Due to long experience of these different survey panels, today, I have found some legitimate paid survey sites. Most of survey sites accept members only from western countries like USA, Canada, etc. There are few paid survey sites for developing countries like India, Brazil, Indonesia, etc.
Some of them are specifically suitable for Indians to earn some money online and use their spare time to earn extra income. There is no specific requirement of these sites or panels to become their member.You also do not need to pay to them to be a member.
Students, housewives, working professionals, all can be their members. You can earn cash in form of online cash vouchers or money into your bank account. Online cash vouchers can be used for online shopping at flipkart, amazon etc.
