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.
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.
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.
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.Visit Rakuten Insight's website ›

It has always surveys to be completed and surveys have a long duration of time to expire. The surveys are of not in quota based.

That is pretty much all I can say.
I was not a member for long and cannot say anything about the cashout process.
Why bother when there are so many portals around that grant more points for your time
