How To Earn By Answering Paid Surveys + TIPS

June 5, 2020

ZoomBucks allows you to earn cash or your favorite gift card rewards just by answering surveys! We work only with trusted brands that need engagement and useful market insight. For the kind of valuable customer information that they need, these brands are willing to pay survey-takers high payout rates. In turn, ZoomBucks recruits members like you to answer survey questions on these companies’ behalf and earn from them.  

Step-By-Step Guide

To get rewarded for completing surveys, you will need to follow these steps carefully. Complete Paid Surveys  

Step 1 - Choose the Survey Provider

ZoomBucks will give you a couple of options to get paid by sharing your opinions. You can choose between the following:  
  • 1. ZoomBucks Surveys
    Simply visit the surveys page, scroll to the bottom and see surveys targeted to your age, zip code, and location. Once redirected to a potential survey, you may be asked more questions to ensure that you qualify – for example, income.
  • 2. Survey Walls
    Survey walls include PeanutLabs, Yuno, CPX Research & Revenue Wall. With survey walls, you will need to provide your information on the survey wall and will be matched with surveys accordingly.
  • 3. Survey Routers
    ZoomBucks also includes survey routers, meaning it acts as a portal to surveys offered by other companies, such as YourSurveys (unlimited survey router) & Dynata. If you don’t qualify for a survey via a router, you may be redirected to another survey that matches your demographics. YourSurveys allows unlimited completes a day while Dynata allows 10 completions daily.

Step 2 - Provide Information on the Wall or Router

Once you're redirected from ZoomBucks to a survey router or wall, you will need to provide more information. This process usually takes a few minutes, and you will need to once for each provider. You’ll need to add your basic info, such as your name and email address, as well as more specific ones like your age, job, and gender.  

Step 3 - Get Matched with Surveys

Based on the information you provided, the next step is to match you with existing surveys. You can look up your matched surveys on the survey wall, which will be curated depending on the demographics you’ve shared. If you’re in a survey router, you will be routed to a survey based on your demographic information.  

Step 4 - Answer the Surveys

You can now begin to answer surveys that interest you! In order to earn points, you will need to complete the survey first. However, some surveys allow you to earn some points even in cases of disqualification or partial completion, such as TapResearch and TheoremReach.  

Step 5 - Start Earning Points

You can start earning points and getting them credited to your account as soon as you complete surveys. Again, take special note of those surveys that allow you to earn even when you get disqualified or unable to complete them.  

Step 6 - Keep Answering to Earn More

Repeat the process if you want to earn more. Some survey routers allow users to answer unlimited surveys for higher earnings at a speedier rate.

Step 7 - Request for a Payout

When you’ve earned at least 5000 points, you can now request for a payout. Choose between cash (sent via PayPal) or your favorite gift cards in the menu, and expect to receive your reward within 48 hours.  

Tips To Boost Your Earnings!


Tip 1 - Check Often and Start Quickly!

You can find surveys on the surveys page. To see variable rate surveys targeted towards your profile, scroll to the bottom, where you'll see something like the below:   ZoomBucks Surveys   Each survey includes the time to complete, the amount you'll receive, and the name of the survey. Keep in mind that surveys are ordered with the easiest surveys at the top. Start attempting surveys from the top and work your way down for maximum success!   The time provided is a guide, so this is the average time it takes to complete the survey. It may or may not take longer than this, but be sure not to rush through the surveys as providers can penalize you for doing so.   In short, if you see a survey, do not delay and attempt right away (especially the surveys at the of the list). This applies to all survey providers!  

Tip 2 - Watch the Live Feed & Leaderboard!

The live feed shows a constant stream of offers crediting within ZoomBucks. Market research providers may increase or decrease in inventory from day to day, so we recommend watching the live feed to see what's popular at any given time. Also, don't forget to check the leaderboard which shows you the top-earning users!  

Tip 3 - Honesty is the Best Policy!

We understand that it could be tempting to speed through a survey, but we highly discourage this behavior. This could result in a suspension from the survey provider and in a worst-case scenario, a suspension of your ZoomBucks account.   Along the way, you may see "speed trap" questions. For example, you may be asked to enter your birthdate on one page and your age on another to ensure they match. You may also be asked simple questions such as, what color is grass?   Consistency and honestly is key to success with surveys!  

Tip 4 - Screen Outs and Full Quotas

  Screen outs occur when the survey needs more demographic information and determines that you aren't qualified for the survey. For example, ZoomBucks does not ask you for your income, but a survey may require a certain income bracket to qualify. The survey will then ask you for your income and screen you out if it doesn't match the demographic requirements.   Quota full simply means that the survey has researched its requirements. If you find this happening, refresh your surveys page to show the latest and greatest surveys. Remember, survey inventory refreshes often, so it's important to have the most up to date list at all times.   Do not get discouraged by screen outs and full quotas. This is normal behavior, and all users experience this. The pros are well aware of this and simply continue on to the next survey.   If you are screened out of a survey, do not attempt to change your details. This is considered manipulation and will result in an account suspension.   If you find yourself constantly getting screened out from surveys, try CPX Research. This is a provider that awards points for disqualifications.  

Tip 5 - Try Other Providers

If ZoomBucks surveys aren't working, try other providers! Some providers have more inventory for some countries than others, and the options are endless. Try Dynata, YourSurveys, PeanutLabs, Yuno, CPX Research, or RevenueWall! Again, pay attention to the live feed to understand whether a provider has more inventory for any specific day!  

Tip 6 - Slow Survey Day? Try Offers

The pros love surveys and earn hundreds of months with this method, but everyone has slow days. If you experience a slow or low inventory day, try offers. Don't forget to complete offers from mobile and desktop since different offers apply for different devices!   ...And That’s It! Now that you know the process, you can start earning as often as you want. For additional information not mentioned here, feel free to contact us.
