Surveyon Review: Cash, Surveys and Fun… Maybe?

Some of the links may be from a sponsor. Advertising Disclosure

Surveyon is said to be a “fun” application that rewards you with points, in which you can exchange for rewards, whenever you answer simple survey questions.  Yes, it’s another one of the many survey apps out there, but is it worth your time?

Surveyon is a simple survey site/app that rewards you to answer surveys as well as participate in additional opportunities.  However, most of your money will be made by answering simple survey questions.  You can sign up either via your desktop or on your mobile phone.

In today’s review, I wanted to talk about Surveyon and how it works in detail, as I do in all of my honest reviews.

Can you make money?

Is it worth your time?

Let’s find out.

Signing up with Surveyon

Before we even get started, the only downfall to Surveyon is that it’s only open to Asian countries since the market research company (DataSpring) only operates in Asia.

If you don’t live in an Asian country, then you will not be able to sign up, unfortunately.

However, if you do, you will just have to register using your email and that’s about it.  You will then be prompted to fill out profiles as you fill out surveys.  I will get into this next.

You only need to be 18+ to join and you can do so either via the desktop or mobile phone.

Making Money with Surveyon with Surveys

If you want to make money with Surveyon, the main way to earn is primarily through surveys.

Whenever you want to take a survey, you can do so in one of two ways.  Like most survey apps/websites, you can log into your dashboard and see the most active surveys, similar to what you see in the screenshot above.  This is often the best way.  Also, aside from logging in, you can watch out for email notifications, which alert you whenever a survey is available.  This option will direct you to the survey itself.

Almost all surveys you click on are forwarded to a third-party company like the many survey app companies I talk about.  Known as third-party offer walls, these are companies that work directly with companies such as this and share a commission whenever a survey is completed.  It’s then up to a company, such as Surveyon, to determine how much they want to share with you.  All companies vary in how much they are willing to share.

When you first start off and attempt to take these surveys, you will see that a lot of these companies will ask about your profile information so that they can learn more about you.  In doing so, they can send out more targeted surveys in the future.  This is very important as failing to fill out these profiles can often lead to a lot of disqualifications, so I do recommend you fill out these profiles in their entirety to increase your earnings.

For every survey you’re able to complete, you will earn points, and I will discuss how much these points are worth later on.

Quick Polls

Also, aside from surveys, you can make money through the quick polls.  You won’t earn much; however, it’s a way to earn something.

To earn with quick polls, it’s very easy.  Just answer the poll question and you will earn one point.

And, if you want to, you can create your own poll, which Surveyon will share with other members.  If your poll gets at least 100 answers, you will earn 200 bonus points.  It may sound nice, but with the competition found on the app, I would advise against it as there are a lot of people submitting polls.


As I talked about earlier, both surveys and polls will pay you in points, in which you can cash out via PayPal.  The app does use a crazy points system, which makes it feel like you’re earning much more than you actually are.

For every 20,000 points you earn, for example, you will receive $2 in rewards.  This is the minimum required to cash out via PayPal.  So, every 10,000 points are worth about $1.

The nice thing is that the payout threshold is very low in comparison to competitors, so you should be able to hit that payment quite fast.

NOTE:  If you’re not active for more than 180 days, you will lose your points, so if you plan on using the website, make sure you stay active every few months.

How Much Do Surveys Pay?

From my experience, I have found that surveys will pay about 500 to 10,000 points, which may sound like a lot, again, but it only equates to about $0.05 to $1 in value.  This seems to be the survey industry average, but the points system is much different than your typical one point equals a penny.

And, remember, even if you see surveys on your dashboard, it doesn’t always mean you will qualify for them.  Plan on qualifying for about 20% of the surveys you click on.

Final Thoughts

5/10In the end, Surveyon is just okay if you live in an Asian country.  I didn’t see a whole lot of surveys, but it did seem like an okay opportunity.  I would just consider it if you’re looking for another way to earn.  Put it at the bottom of your list.

What I did like was that they did pay out via PayPal and you only needed $2 to cash out.  Just remember that every 10,000 points is worth $1.  It’s a simple math formula, but I wish they stuck with the typical one point equals a penny to make it easier.  Oh, well.

The company is legit and they will pay if you build a balance.  If you do sign up, don’t expect to make a ton, only maybe a few dollars a month at that.  If you’re okay with that, then you won’t be as disappointed.  It’s definitely one of the lower paying apps on the market.

That’s going to do it for now.

As always, if you want to talk about your experience with the app, you’re more than welcome to do so in the comments below.
