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 or vouchers. In the USA, 100 points = $1.00 USD and in India, 100 points = Rs. 1.

Voucher Options

In the USA, you can opt to redeem your points for Amazon gift cards. 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.

Mobile app

Users with Android devices can opt to download the Rakuten Insights app on their mobile phone, which can make it easier to take surveys as they become available.

Rewards too small

July 21, 2013 by Robert from United Kingdom

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.

one penny surveys

May 28, 2013 by Johnnie from United States

Each point is one cents. all surveys state the incentive starting at 1 point and may go up to 70 points but that is rare. it took me over a year to cash out at 5 dollars. not worth it. maybe it different for members in their country. I'm in the U.S.

I won $50 not long after I signed up. I received the money in my paypal a couple of weeks later!

Will NEVER, EVER cash out!

American branch of a JAPAN survey site. Average 2-3 surveys/month (OK there)...Each survey earns 1-2 points (OK there)...BUT, you need a MINIMUM of 500 points to cash out, and YOUR POINTS EXPIRE IN ONE (1) YEAR! Do the math, folks, and don't waste yer valuable time!
