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.
Esearch pays cash honorariums for your participation by PayPal only. Make sure the email you sign up with is the same email you use for your PayPal account in order to redeem your rewards. Most surveys have cash incentives, but a few have draws. The cash incentive/draw information will be noted on the survey invitation so you will know your reward before filling out the survey. Incentives range from $1-$5 or more.
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. Although Esearch accepts panelists from around the world, most studies are for the US market, and therefore international panelists will get few survey requests.

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!

I've waited for 3 months for a $3 Paypal payment. I have contacted the company, they replied with an apology and promise of payment a month ago. I am not holding my breath that I will ever receive that payment, and I don't intend to do any more of their surveys.

You can complain to them all you want about a broken survey link and they never fix them. Appears this isnt a legit operation. Extremly rare to get a survey that works.

At the beginning, they paid you very quickly and on-time. After you do serveral surveys, they start to reject your payment by all kinds of execuse. Also they treat the panel dishonest and tricky.

I signed up with this site in March 2008 and have to date, only been offered one survey. What can you say about a survey site that is offering NO surveys?????
