Esearch is one of the first and oldest online survey panels, having come into existence in 1995. Esearch is primary focused on the USA market, and currently has almost 1 million survey panelists. Survey panel members of Esearch receive cash awards for their participation, or sweepstakes entries for cash drawings.
Pay by Group
Esearch does not track earnings by individual survey respondents, instead they track by project. Keep track of your earnings by saving the email invitations to surveys that you qualify and complete. With this being said, members usually earn about $2 to $20 per survey.
Esearch pays with either PayPal, check or bank transfer. Checks take one to two weeks to process and include a fee of $1.50. Electronic transfer takes 3-4 business days.
The typical survey on Esearch will take you 10-15 minutes to complete. Panelists usually receive a survey invitation to participate about once a month. These are usually online surveys, but you may be asked to try out a product at home and give your opinion.

Don't waste your time with Esearch! They used to be a reliable survey company but they stopped paying people about a year ago! When you contact them about missed payments they'll assure you that the money is on the way but they never actually send the payment!
Another good survey company, but surveys are far and few in between.
This is my new favorite survey panel. Their payouts are HUGE! Very worthwhile panel. They send out surveys about once a week, or so. I hardly ever disqualify. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars, though, is that their payment processing time is slow. BUT they do pay out on the day they say they will. Also, super helpful support! Best panel ever.
Sent numerous emails 3 months after survey. Run around and no payment.
I joined this site in 2012 and I think to date I've had 3 survey invitations, 2 of which I completed and was credited for. I actually forgot they existed it's been so long since I've had anything!
Of what I know, they're fairly ok - you sign up with them and when there is a survey that your profile matches, they email it to you. You click through and if you qualify your payment is sent to your PayPal address automatically, albeit a few weeks later. And that's it! No points collection, no minimum cash out, no unnecessary time spent picking what reward you actually want - one of the easiest sites, although the fact I forgot about them speaks volumes about how frequent their invites are...
I would say register on the off-chance you may get more - they do pay in $ though, so whilst it may brag a $5 payout for half an hour of your day, in reality it's only a couple of quid and will take a while to receive
