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 ›
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.

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

Very few surveys and when you do get one, sometimes you get one point.

You need 1000 points to cash out but most survey's only give you a couple of points.
The odd one is 70 points but that is for a extremely long survey.
Cashing out here will take a good few years as survey's are not that frequent.

I have applied for a 250 voucher redemption last Dec 2016, and I haven't received it. Emailed them twice yet they keep on telling me that it has been processed. They send me the bill #, tried checking it online but unfortunately no parcel/document has the bill# they had given me.... too slow. Terrible way of sending rewards. It could have been Paypal or other online payment.
