GetPaidTo is one of the many communities online that pays you to complete surveys, offers and so much more. There are a lot of companies in this space and I try to review as many of them as I can. GetPaidTo looks to have some potential, but it’s hard to tell just by looking at the front page.
Whether you’re looking for a new way to make money online or maybe you’re researching this company more in depth, I wanted to dig in deep and see if the company is worth your time. Now, granted, these sites won’t pay you much, even if they are legit, but they can earn you $10~ a week, maybe a pinch more. Who knows? Maybe that’s what you’re looking for.
Nonetheless, in today’s review, I signed up for GetPaidTo to see how it works, what you can make as well as what the internet is saying. As always, I’m 100% honest, only recommending programs I would use.
So, with that being said, let’s jump in and see what it’s all about.
What is GetPaidTo?
GetPaidTo will pay you in points to perform a variety of tasks, from completing surveys to signing up for offers. Simply put, perform the tasks as noted and you can earn points in doing so. Every 5,000 points equals $1 and you can use these points to cash out for a variety of prizes, from crypto to cash and gift cards.
At first glance, the company does appear to be legitimate, at least from what I call the “sniff test.” I don’t sense a scam, at least not yet.
To sign up for GetPaidTo, they ask for the typical information, such as your email, name, date of birth as well as which country you reside in.
It appears that they accept anyone worldwide, however, depending on where you live, you may be restricted as to how much you can make. Generally, U.S., Canadian and U.K. residents tend to make the most money on these platforms. Results will vary, however.
The entire process takes maybe five minutes at most. Once you confirm your email address, you can then access your dashboard to start earning points.
After registering, you can then start earning points immediately. And, on your desktop, this is what your dashboard is going to look like…
At first, it does look a bit cluttered, but I promise you that it’s easy to navigate. When you first start, I would recommend navigating the top menu, which looks like this…
The main dashboard will focus on the featured offers, the newer surveys as well as more popular earning options if you scroll down. There’s a lot to absorb, but I like to start with the “earn points” section.
To earn points on GetPaidTo, you can do so in the following ways:
- quick points
- offer walls
I will talk about how each one works below.
Let’s start with the first option — the offers, also known as the featured offers.
In this section, GetPaidTo will list the many offers you can take advantage of to earn points. Some will require you to purchase something, whereas other offers will require that you simply sign up and confirm your email address. Each offer will tell you what’s expected of you to earn the points noted.
So, for example, the screenshot above showcased a few offers available to me.
That “Pococha” offer would pay me 6,250 points, about $1 in value, if I signed up and watched a stream for three minutes. The last one stated I could earn 37,500 points, about $7.50~ in value, if I reached level 201, as long as I was a never user.
99% of the time, the offer is straightforward. As long as you follow these rules, you shouldn’t have a problem getting compensated.
And, like most of the make-money sites I review, GetPaidTo works with a variety of offerwalls, which are third-party providers that give these websites the offers and share the cut. So, GetPaidTo, in a sense, is a middleman, just peddling these offers to you, keeping a chunk of what you make. This is standard in the industry, but some companies will keep a bigger cut than most, so that’s why I recommend you at least compare offers with other sites to see who pays the most.
The next way you can earn points is through surveys, a very popular option these GPT sites offer.
The thing I didn’t like about GetPaidTo was that they just direct you to the many third-party offerwall companies. While there’s nothing wrong with the companies mentioned, it’s annoying having to click on each provider to see which surveys were available. You can, however, scroll down and find a few “quick point” opportunities. Unlike Swagbucks and SuperPay.me, which list the surveys, along with the compensation, GetPaidTo just makes you jump through a few more steps.
On the plus side, however, they did work with a lot of reputable providers, which means more earning opportunities for you.
Now, if you’re new to the survey world, keep in mind that you won’t qualify for every survey you take. In fact, you will qualify for maybe 15%~ of the options you click on. This will depend on your demographics. With that being said, keep in mind that these providers will ask for your demographics, so it will be important that you fill out your demographic profile so that you can receive targeted survey invites.
The Quick Points section, as the name implies, is designed if you want to earn points quickly.
It will look just like the offers mentioned above, only that most of them will only take you a few minutes to earn your points.
For example, the Pococha offer shows up again, which will only take you three minutes to complete. The far-right option, requires a $25 deposit to earn 75,000 points. Most of the time, these are the faster than average offers.
If you want to see all of the offer walls the company works with, then you can click on the offer walls tab.
Here, you will see about 12 major offer walls, all of which offer a variety of opportunities, from offers to surveys.
Just remember that many companies work with these offer walls and act as a middleman. If you do see an offer that you may want to do, I highly recommend you compare the rates on other sites to make sure you’re getting the best deal.
And, lastly, another way to earn points is via the games section.
According to the company, you will earn one point for every game you play for at least 30 seconds. However, in order to earn this one point, you will have to earn at least one point in the offer wall/survey section. So, for every one point you earn on surveys/offers, you can play games and earn one point per 30 seconds played or so. You won’t make much earning points playing games, but it’s a way to earn something, I suppose if you want to pass some time.
The company offers a variety of games from various genres, so I’m sure there’s one that may be of interest to you. Just keep in mind that it won’t pay much, especially seeing you have to complete a survey/offer to activate the deal.
The last thing I want to mention are the contests. It’s an additional way to earn points if you’re a top earner for the week.
The cool thing about GetPaidTo will reward you points if you’re one of the weekly top leaders. And, from the looks of it, you will need to earn at least 100,000+ points in seven days to contend. That’s a lot of points.
So, for example, if you come in first place for the week, you can earn an additional 15,000 points, but if you came in 20th, you get 600 points. As long as you’re one of the top 20 earners for the week, you can earn bonus points.
I wouldn’t get too caught up in these rankings, but it’s a way to make some extra cash if you’re interested.
When you’re ready to cash out, GetPaidTo offers a variety of options, including the following:
- bank transfer (25,000 points minimum)
- Skrill (5,000 points minimum)
- Crypto (5,000 points minimum)
- Amazon (5,000 points minimum)
- PayPal (25,000 points minimum)
Remember, every 5,000 points equal $1, so you will need at least 5,000 in points to cash out, which makes it one of the lower minimums in the industry.
When you do cash out, it can take anywhere from one to three business days to receive your payment. Since all payouts are processed manually, it will depend on when you cash out.
What Others Are Saying
As in all of my reviews, I love to see what other people are saying. After all, these reviews deserve other opinions, right?
Online, I could find some information, but it wasn’t much. Here’s what I found…
TrustPilot visitors gave the site a 3.4/5, which I say is average. Positive reviewers liked the app and how easy it was to use, while others said the staff wasn’t too friendly. By looking at their replies on this site, I can agree. It definitely shows that they didn’t take any business 101 classes in dealing with their customers.
Their Facebook page had a solid 5/5 rating, but they haven’t updated it in a while. Some reviews seemed to be spam, but those that weren’t said they were paid and the website was legitimate.
Final Thoughts5/10In the end, I would say GetPaidTo is a mixed bag. It’s not a scam nor is it a waste of time. They mainly work with third-party providers, but it doesn’t make it a bad thing. The biggest complaint I have is that their payouts aren’t up to par in comparison to their competitors like Swagbucks and SuperPay.me. These sites offer the same opportunities but the pay is higher for most, at least at the time of this review.
GetPaidTo won’t be added to my list, but I wouldn’t discourage you from using it. Just sign up and see if any of the offers make sense to you. It’s possible you may find one or two, but I wouldn’t count on it. If you do sign up and make money, you will get paid. You just won’t get rich.
That’s going to do it for now.
