If you want to make some extra money online for free, one of the easiest ways to do this is by taking paid surveys.
There are, however, MANY survey sites, so it can be difficult to find out which ones are worth joining. That is why I have made a list of the Top 10 paying survey sites for 2023.
I have tested all of these sites thoroughly myself, and all the sites on the list below are legit and FREE to join, and they are a great way to start getting paid for surveys.
I have put the list together based on my tests of hundreds of paid survey sites, and these are the ones I see as the best survey sites – and I have been paid by all of them myself, so I know that they actually do pay.
The list below is a general Top 10 list and has sites that are available for many different countries. You can see lists for specific countries here to find the ones that are best for your specific country, or check out below which countries the recommended sites are available for.
Below the list, you can read more about how I decided which survey sites to put on the list.

Why I made a Top 10 list
After you have seen my list of the best survey sites, I just want to clarify how I have made this list as there are so many to choose from.
I have tested all the sites thoroughly myself, and not only tested the sites on the top 10 list. I have tested MANY more sites, and I am continuously testing new ones. In fact, I have tested hundreds of paid survey sites and Get-Paid-To sites over the last 5-6 years.
You can find reviews of all the sites I have tested on this website.
I decided to make a list of the best sites to make it easy for you to get started with getting paid from online surveys, by showing which sites I have found to be the best and why.
I will, however, recommend that you also read the reviews of the survey sites, as I have a lot of advice and tips for the different sites in these reviews. By reading them, you will get more information, and it will be easier for you to choose the sites that are right for you – the ones that are the best for me might not necessarily be the best for you.
There can be certain things that make a survey site very good in, for example, one country but not very attractive in another. I have done my best to put this kind of information in the reviews and in the descriptions of the survey sites.
The list above is a list of the overall best survey sites. One thing that is very important to understand is that the exact sites that are best for you depend a lot on the country you live in. That is why I have also created lists with the best sites for specific countries you can check out to find the ones that are best in YOUR specific country.
How do I decide what sites make it to the top 10?
You might be wondering how I made a Top 10 when there are hundreds of survey sites out there. I must admit that I have not been able to test every single survey site there is, but I have tested a lot, and I will continue to test as many as possible. I will, therefore, also continuously update the list above.
Just the past year, there have been quite a few changes on this top 10 list as new survey sites have been launched that now deserve a spot on the list, and others no longer have the same quality they used to have and have, therefore, lost a spot.
When testing survey sites, I look at how much money it is possible to make in relation to the time spent, how often they have available surveys, how easy it is to use, how they pay (PayPal, crypto, vouchers, gifts, etc.), and more. The ratings above are given based on these parameters when I compare a certain site to survey sites in general. All this, put together, leads to my Top 10.
Some sites, I have also decided not even to try to sign up for now, as they are easy to spot as being a scam. Some of these you will be able to find scam warnings about in the review section.
There are, for example, sites that want you to pay a large amount of money to get access to surveys (in general, I would advise not to join a site that charges you for access to surveys). I have written a general article about how you can avoid these survey scams so you know what to consider before joining a survey site and how to spot the ones that you should stay away from.
