Hi guys, have just checked out the website of a company claiming they pay you for doing surveys online. There is a joining fee ($20 USD, I think) which makes me bit wary of it, if anyone has any experience of this company would appreciate your feedback, have attached link below to the company. Thanks!

The survey companies that I have had luck with is pinecone research, american consumer opinion, and greenfield. I am not sure about paying to be a member. If you decide on it please let us know how it goes.

I would think that if they want you pay upfront for something, then most likely it is a scam of some sort. Kinda like stuffing envelopes. I just think that a real legit place wouldn't make you pay for anything if they are employing you. They should pay you not you pay them, know what I mean?

Just my opinion. But keep us updated if you end up doing it.

Donot trust them. Better keep away from them. or if you have anyone have ever been paid by a survey website. let us know.

Personally, I have not heard of one getting paid by survey web

Actually, I've been paid from survey sites over the years. I've also won prizes from them too. Some of the survey sites do charge a fee to join, but their payouts are higher. Most free sites have a max earnings of $3 - 5 USD per survey, if that, or award points (and it takes A LOT of points to earn anything worthwhile). I've seen some survey sites where there's a fee to join, but within a survey or two you've earned back your money plus some.

I'll see what I can find out about them and report back shortly...

:D Don't pay for a list of survey sites, most of the time they will send you links to survey sites that you can find on your own with a google search. Also, some survey sites these days will not allow you to sign up, if you were referred from one of these paid survey sites. Be careful

I want data entry jobs, can anyone recommend any good paying company?

Meanwhile there is this site Link hidden: Login to view for a fee, you get access to their database which has data entry companies. Has any one heard or used them before? Was about to register.

Thanks.
