Panel Champ, Myiyo

As of July 2018, AIP Online Surveys rebranded itself as Rakuten Insight.

Rakuten Insight Global, the parent company of Rakutan Insight, serves business organizations and entities from all over the world, with their primary markets being Europe, the United States, and Asia. Panel participants help Rakuten advise on the development of better products and services.

Payment and Rewards

Unique "EPoints" System

Once you are registered with Rakuten, you will be sent surveys to fill out. Multiple users from the same household may register, however every person will require their own separate e-mail address to register.

Rakuten uses a unique EPoints system that rewards you with points that vary according to content, the number of questions and the length of each survey. Accumulated EPoints can be redeemed for cash sent to your PayTM account. In India, 1 EPoint = Rs. 1, and in the US, 100 EPoints = 1.00 USD.

Voucher Options

For residents of India: redeem your EPoints for your choice of an Amazon e-voucher, Flipkart online voucher or Lifestyle online voucher. Only 100 EPoints (worth Rs. 100) is required for your first redemption.

Cash Option

For USA residents: Redeem your points for a cash payment made to your Paypal account with just 500 Epoints (worth $5) in earnings.

For India residents: Get paid by Paytm, with 100 EPoints (Rs. 100). Payments are issued in batches; this is typically done once per month. Remember that the email you use to sign up for Rakuten Insights must match the email used on your PayPal account in order to redeem your cash.

Survey Taking Experience


Although the number of surveys invitations you receive will vary based on your demographic information, the more complete and up-to-date your profile is, the more likely it is you will receive surveys.

Refer Friends for Bonus Points

Country dependent: refer your friends and extended family members to Rakuten, and get credited with bonus points awarded to your account.

Sweepstakes Opportunities

Periodic 'lucky draws' are held with prizes like electronics including iPads, and gift cards to major retailers. Log into your account for information regarding how to win.

Eligibility: varies across countries; only users 16 years and older may join.

So far its helpful to me because it is legit to earn extra income.

consistency is the key

May 18, 2020 by Cristina Joy from Philippines

What I like about Rakuten Insight is its consistency, and consistency allows me to be engaged to answering surveys. People are always looking for one time, big thing and just end everything there. But Rakuten Insight doesn't leave me hanging -- it keeps me going instead.

Survey Opportunities and rewards

May 13, 2020 by Pankaj from India

Rakuten Insight is a fine platform for survey participation. Apart from quantitative, qualitative participation results in expected points achieved by the participant.

One thing I like this Rakuten Insight, is it provides great opportunities to the household members to take part of the survey and eventually earn money.

Easy to use

May 6, 2020 by Eloisa Kail from Philippines

Rakuten Insight is easy to use however one time it e-mailed me about a new survey however when I open my account there was no new survey available for me.
Nevertheless, it is one of the best paying surveys.
