    You need to be very careful with survey sites, especially ones that ask you to make an upfront payment, there are a lot of scams out there. Due to this high level of reported scams, personally I wouldn't recommend it is a good way to make money online. Have you considered building your own site or blog?

    1. The best survey site is depend on where you from. Suggest planet pulse if you are international member
    2. Again it is depends on the survey and your location. Basically you can earn from $1 to $10 per survey.
    3. Not sure
    4. Most of them pay via paypal or check
    5. Paypal

    see, i dont really know about the survey sites, but yes manual surveys are really appreciated and trusted more by companies, if you are planning to start a survey business, yes go ahead, but as far as site is concerned i really dont know about it

    For the member from india, you can get $1~$10 per survey generally. However, there are not many survey for the member from india or international member. It might take you half year or more to achieve the minimum payout due to less survey

    As far as I know, survey world is full of swindlers. They are world best spammers as well !! Once I completed a survey with the hope to get some quick bucks But from the next day, I started receiving hundreds of e-mails with multifarious subjects from unknown senders!! Oh my gosh!

    This is almost 100% sure that as soon as you give your e-mail address to them, they will sell it to spammers even if you quit without completing a survey.

    I can suggest you to stay away from survey sites since they are full of scams. I have seen some people who lost their precious time in answering surveys but they all fail to earn even a dollar. Plus, most of them wants you to pay a membership fee to earn alot more, that's what they say.
    I will definitely suggest you to look for another legitimate online job. GPT sites won't give you enough earnings.

    I joined some survey sites when i was a newbie in the world of "online marketing" .I still get their surveys(WHICH I DON'T ATTEMPT NOW) where they initially ask a bunch of questions and once they have collected all your info,you get this message "Sorry,you do not qualify for this survey,however we would like to reward you 5 points for the efforts you made" .They giving 5 points and the payout will be made once you reached 1500 points($75).Isn't it shocking?? So i had a very bad experience with this kind of "money making" scheme where you don't actually get to earn money even if you put a lot of hard work.so i consider it as a "waste of time"
