Reviews – Legit or Scam?
from 146 reviews Review It is a relatively new website that promises you can earn money by participating in market research.  Besides paid surveys, they also advertise that you will be paid for reading emails and for completing trial offers.

Paid surveys is a very common way of making money online.  When you first sign up with any of these market research opportunities, you must fill out a very specific questionnaire with all of you information.  This information is then used to make sure that you qualify for the appropriate surveys and trial offers.

It is important that you be as honest as possible when filling out this questionnaire because you could waste a lot of time being told you don’t qualify for surveys you have already begun. also encourages you to complete trial offers – and you are reminded that you are responsible for canceling those trial offers before you begin being charged – as well as reading emails and referring your friends to join their site.

So is Inbox Pays a Scam?

Well, the first question I always ask is whether or not the site charges you to become a member?  Inbox Pays is completely free to join, so that’s a good sign.  However, there are a couple things worth mentioning about the site before anyone signs up.

First of all, you must have a PayPal account in order to get paid.  This means that Inbox Pays deals in real currency instead of gift cards and prizes, which is something many people like.  However, they require that you earn at least $50 in your account before you can request a payout.

This is nearly twice the earnings amount required by most other paid survey sites.  The truth is that each survey you successful complete generally won’t pay more than five dollars at the most, and successfully completing surveys is not the easiest thing.  This means that you may have to complete many surveys before you can receive a payout, and some people may get frustrated and quit without ever receiving the money they have earned.

In addition, their promise of getting paid for reading emails actually means getting paid to click the links of advertisers that they will send you.  And once you allow them to give your email to advertisers, watch out.  You will likely be drowning in emails.

And the price that is paid per click will often be very low, and paid to Inbox Pays, who will then pay you a percentage of it.  This makes the $50 payout look even harder to achieve.

In general, Inbox Pays is free to sign up for, so it’s not a scam, but you should be aware of what you are getting into.  Remember, if you’re really looking to make money taking surveys, then make sure to sign up for multiple companies in order to increase your chances of success.

Average Rating for " Inbox Pays " is 1.5 out of 5 based on 146 reviews.
  • On 11/11/11, they changed their policy on redemption to only allow $25 in paid emails to be credited. I requested payment on 11/10/11, since I had reached the $50 threshold. This business is based in Houston, TX, and they have a branch of the Better Business Bureau in that city. If they don't pay, I will be contacting them for relief.
  • there's a contact, its on the site under "contact us" [email protected] I got paid no problem!
  • Inbox Pays is such a scam....I requested a $50.00 pay out on 9-17-2011 and still have not received any money!! An even bigger part of the scam is that I can not email them...when I enter in my password it doesn't work and when I click to get a new password it says that a new password has just been emailed to me....I have done this 4 times and never received an email from them. DO NOT SIGN UP FOR INBOXPAYS IT IS A SCAM FOR SURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I cashed out on 9/16/11. I did the confirmattion call, I then called them and was suposed to be paid on 11/15/11. No payment, when I called again, they said that there was no record of me calling!! Right! I finally got paid on 12/1/11. Call 313-212-0044 central time until they get it right! Good Luck! This $25 for this and $25 for that is ridiculous!!

  • Once you request payment then you need to send an email to customer care then within 48 hours they call or send email. They pay 100%. It is not scam. Only thing it takes times at least 30 days after the payment request.
  • It was fine until I made to $48.70 in my account. Then all of a sudden it just stop giving me credit for all my emails read. I know I made well over $50. When I tried to contact them and inform them of this, I got no response back, whatsoever. This is POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. This internet site is a SCAM. It needs to be shut down.
