10+ Best International Paid Survey Sites to Make Money

This ” 10+ Best International Paid Survey Sites to Make Money” post includes surveys exclusively for non-US based individuals. This post stems from the readers’ suggestion to the author to create a post that helps non-US based people earn additional money through surveys. Please note that there may be different survey offerings or opportunities in different countries, which may not be the ones stated below. This post contains affiliate links/ads. See disclosure policy.

A couple of months ago, I published the “25+ Survey Sites That Will Add $600/Month” post.

I did not know that it would be a hit for many people who seek to earn additional money to pay for their everyday expenses, to save for their future, etc.

As a matter of fact, this post is the main reason that my blog traffic has been substantially high for the past couple of months.

I have received so many emails from my blog readers that I can’t help but feel happy to know that they find my post valuable and find surveys that may or will help them earn money.

I didn’t realize that my post would reach people who reside outside the US. The truth is, many of those who sent me emails or messaged me were from overseas. Almost all of them asked me if I knew of surveys that they could get their hands into.

In case your country is not listed here yet, please feel free to comment here. This is going to be a continuous, ever-expanding post.

Best International Paid Survey Sites to Make Money

Now that I have obtained the following surveys, I know that there are a ton of them out there. It’s just a matter of when I will get the opportunity to find those surveys. I will constantly update this post to include international-based surveys I found online and through referrals.

Just a note, here are some of the posts you want to check out for other survey sites, many of which are not listed here:

Opinion World

The survey opportunities provided by Opinion World may be different from one country to another.

While some survey sites only offer one way to earn rewards, that is, through taking surveys, Opinion World is different. In some countries, you have more opportunities to earn rewards by taking quick and easy surveys on QuickThoughts app and taking paid online surveys.

On the other hand, in some other countries, you can join Opinion World for FREE and earn points for completing surveys online through invitation only.

The bottom line with Opinion World is that you are able to redeem points for cash and/or rewards of your own choosing.

For more specific information regarding Opinion World in specific countries, please click the country link below.

Swagbucks is what I consider as one of the best international paid survey sites out there. Swagbucks is like Google, TopCashback, Ebates, and Vindale Research group together. Swagbucks is in its own category. Why? Here are some of the reasons that I say it’s in its own category:

  • You get points by using it as a search engine.
  • You earn points by taking surveys.
  • You get points by watching videos and playing games.
  • You earn points by completing offers.
  • You can earn cash back through its extensive cash back shopping section.

Let’s put it this way, I earned at least $25 a month just by watching videos. When you sign up via my link, you will receive $5 bonus right away.

Neilsen Mobile

If you don’t like taking surveys but still want to earn rewards, then, Neilsen Mobile is the right application for you.

What separates Neilsen Mobile from other surveys is that all you have to do is download the app or install Neilsen Mobile’s profile and use your phone the way you have been using it. Yes, you do not have to take surveys to earn rewards.

The purpose of Neilsen Mobile is to understand how consumers, in general, use their phones. The app uses the information it obtains from you to help the industry in building, planning, and managing products or offers for consumers just like you.

According to its website, none of your information will be shared with the third parties for marketing purposes.

With Neilsen Mobile, you can earn up to $50 a year that you can use towards shopping vouchers, cinema tickets, household appliances, and so many more.

Best International Survey Sites to Make MoneySurvey Downline

Survey Downline is similar to many of those surveys out there, that is, it allows you to earn extra money when you participate in online surveys.

You can take surveys night or day, which means you can take them when you want to.

Want something different from Survey Downline? Survey Downline pay its members up to 45% of the money it earns from the surveys you complete.

Just this fact alone shows that it views people who are taking the surveys as partners. In my own opinion, this is really something that sets it apart from other survey sites.

Want more? If you want to multiply your earning or earn more, all you need to do is tell other people like your friends and family to sign up and take the surveys.

When they complete surveys, you will earn 10% of what they earn for each survey. That’s on top of the 35-45% earning you get for each survey you complete.

Sounds like a win-win situation to me.

Neilsen Panel

Neilsen Panel is also is what I consider as one of the best international paid survey sites out there.

Do you want to be rewarded for the products that you buy anyways? If your answer is yes, then, Neilsen Panel is perfect for you.

With Neilsen Panel, you have the power to make a difference by letting retailers and other manufacturers know what you buy and what you like.

Like Neilsen Mobile, you don’t need to take surveys to earn rewards through Neilsen Panel. Once you registered for the program, you will receive a hand-held scanner.

What you do next is simple and so easy to do even your children can do it.

Once you have the hand-held device, start scanning the products  you buy for your household every week and send it to Neilsen via the Scanner’s Base Unit. The best part is that registration and submission of data are FREE.

For your contribution, you will receive points that you can use for gifts and store vouchers. So, if you like to be rewarded with what you are purchasing now, then, this is the best panel for you.

Opinion Outpost

Some claim that Opinion Outpost is one of the best survey sites out there. While I personally haven’t used this survey, some of my friends who use Opinion Outpost do like this survey.

Opinion Outpost is considered as a pioneer in the world of online market research in which members are rewarded for providing their opinions through completing paid surveys.

With Opinion Outpost, you are not only limited to survey opportunities that are sent via email. You can view available surveys by going to your online Opinion Outpost account and looking for those survey opportunities.

MobileXpression is my new found love when it comes to the best international paid survey sites.

Like Neilsen Digital Voice, MobileXpression rewards you in exchange for sharing your mobile internet activity. How do you share your internet activity? The answer is simple. You can share it by downloading and running its application on your hand-held devices.  It does not get simple and easy as that.

As far benefits go, members of MobileXpression are guaranteed rewards for participation. Yes, that’s what it guarantees. Do you want to know what rewards it has given out? Well, according to its website, it has given out some nice products such as iPads, and digital cameras.

Neilsen NetRatings

While many survey companies only focus on surveys as a way to help you earn rewards and/or money, Neilsen NetRatings is different and is on a league of its own, which is why I included it in the best international paid survey list.

Neilsen has ways to help you earn rewards and/or money through the things that you are already doing.

With NetRatings, all you need to do is download its NetRatings Internet Panel Software and go on with what you are doing and get rewarded at the same time. This software allows Neilsen to get understanding on how you use the internet. It also delivers surveys, which it sends periodically. It does not get easier than that.

Countries available: Australia and UK

Pinecone Research

Pinecone Research will always be one of my favorite international paid survey sites.

Pinecone Research has had great reputation for being a great survey website. Pinecone is where my wife and I first started before we focused more of our survey time to ACOP and ProOpinion. Surveys from Pinecone Research generally take 15 minutes.

From time to time, Pinecone may or will send out products to their members to try. Rewards can be redeemed via PayPal, gift cards, retail e-vouchers, VISA prepaid cards, and others. Sign up for Pinecone Research is FREE.

Countries available: Canada (English), Canada (French), and Canada (Ages 18 to 34)

Neilsen Digital Voice

This is not your typical survey. When you hear the word ‘ survey’, the first things you think about it is filling out information and answering some questions.

This is not Neilsen Digital Voice.

If you don’t like taking surveys because of the time you need to dedicate, then, this is for you. All you need is sign up, download, and install Neilsen Digital Voice’s app. That’s all you need.

Just keep your app installed and do things you always do such as play games, surf the web, read blogs, watch movies, and others.

Countries available: Germany and  New Zealand


Last but not the least in our list of best international paid survey list is TopCashback.

TopCashback is a portal that helps you earn money through purchases you make via the web. Like the other sites on this list, you have to go to TopCashback first and search for the store you like to go to. Once found, click the site and you’ll be directed to that store.

According to the site, the retailer will pay TopCashback a commission for your purchases and such commission is added to your earnings as cashback. If you ask me how it manages to earn money when all the commission goes to your account, the answer is simple. It earns money by hitting bonus with merchants as well as merchant advertisements in its site.

You can earn as much as 10% from Amazon, 15% from Living Social, $75 from T-Mobile, and more. Those are what I call easy money.

For me, the best feature of TopCashback is that the sign up is FREE.
