Payment Information

With SurveyLion, you will earn an incentive for every online survey completed. Incentives are typically cash payments and once you have a balance in your account, you can request a payment which will be mailed to you in the form of a cheque. Some surveys will offer a gift certificate or a product instead of cash as an incentive – the survey invitation e-mail you receive will state this as well as the estimated amount of time it will take you to complete the survey.

Get paid via cheque
chequeYou can choose whether to request a payment after every survey you complete, or you can accumulate a larger balance and request your payment then. There is no minimum balance needed in order to request a payment cheque – as long as you have completed at least one survey, you can request a payment right away or wait until you have accumulated more in your account if you prefer.

All payments are made by cheque and will arrive at your home in 3 to 5 weeks after your request. Simply log into your account and click the “Request Payment” button in order to receive your cheque.

Get $5 for every friend you refer!
referralsFor every friend or family member who lives outside of your household who becomes an active member of SurveyLion using your link, you will be credited $5 to your account. An active member is defined as someone who has successfully completed one (1) paid survey OR has attempted to complete three (3) paid surveys but was screened out (either overquota or did not meet survey qualifications). You can refer others to the program by simply sending an e-mail to them through your SurveyLion account.

Survey Lengths and Compensation
The amount of cash offered per completed survey ranges from $1 and $10, depending on the length and complexity of the study. Occasionally, multi-part studies may become available which will provide more significant rewards than regular online surveys. The majority of SurveyLion surveys take between 5-15 minutes to complete.
