How Much Can You Earn With Zap Surveys?

Zap Surveys Review

Thanks for checking out our Zap Surveys Review. Today we will be finding out, amongst other things, how much you can earn on this Survey App…….Taking online surveys is a popular way to earn some extra money online, but some platforms are better than others.

Some pay slightly better for surveys, and some offer incentives to sign up, like a bonus to get you started……..Zap Surveys is one such platform that pays a sign up bonus, which by the way is quite high at $6.

All you are required to do to get that amount in your account is fill out a short profile survey.

$25 Cashout-Too High?

Zap Surveys ‘pays’ you $6 to get you started, but of course they won’t pay you a dime until you reach the minimum payout.

If the minimum payout happens to be $25, which unfortunately it is at Zap Surveys, then it could take you quite some time to reach it. Some survey sites let you cash out much earlier.

You may of course not reach it at all.

You may give up due to the frustratingly long time it can take to build up any meaningful amount in your account due to not qualifying for surveys…….which does happen a lot with survey sites.

How It Works With Zap Surveys

I signed up to Zap Surveys myself, completed the short survey to get my $6, and started doing the surveys. Unfortunately I didn’t qualify for many. When the cash out is high, and the surveys are hard to qualify for, it can be difficult maintaining the motivation. This is what happened to me and I gave up trying to reach $25.

Once you’ve got your $6 for the first survey with Zap Surveys, the surveys that follow will pay you  the industry standard of between approx $0.50 to $1.50 depending upon the length of survey.

Zap Surveys do however pay you $0.01 for each continuous day you log in, and say they will pay you $0.75 for logging in 45 days in a row. So you could reach the cash out without completing a single survey.

However judging by some of the comments I have received in the comments below, some members say they haven’t been paid.

Some however say they have… it’s up to you to decide whether you want to spend the time it will take to get to $25 to see if you do get paid.

Getting Paid By Zap Surveys

The surveys provide at Zap Surveys are from Peanut Labs and SaySo For Good. Each survey that you complete, Zap Surveys will either make a donation to stop child starvation, or a full meal is donated to a starving child.

That’s something I like about the App

What I don’t like so much about Zap Surveys is what I mentioned above……which is that you have to earn $25 to cash out.

Even with a great start of $6, it is still going to take some real stamina to get to the redemption amount.

When, or if you get to the redemption amount of $25, you can get paid via PayPal or Amazon eGift Card.

Getting paid via PayPal is in my opinion the best way to get paid. Here are 5 more survey sites that use PayPal

What Are People Saying About Zap Surveys?

Zap Surveys gets a 4.2 star rating from 624 users on GooglePlay (at the time of writing this review). The users that complained said they didn’t qualify for many surveys, which is of course a common complaint raised by most people who have taken online surveys.

Other complaints were about the high cash out sum and the lack of surveys……There was a 4 star rating on the App Store from a total of 18 user reviews.

Have you used this App and you have been paid?

There are no payment proofs from Zap Surveys that I can find online presently but if you have been using it and reached the payout let us know in the comments below.

Take a look at the promotional video below to find out more about Zap Surveys

You will never get paid a full time income on survey or reward site, they are not meant to make you rich, or even to replace your day job.

They are designed to pay you a little money for the time you invest carrying out tasks or surveys at home.

If you have the time to spare, they can be a convenient way to earn some extra pocketmoney whilst you are relaxed and sat at home.

If you get a realistic idea of what you can earn from taking online surveys from home then you won’t be disappointed.

Don’t believe the hype from those that claim you can earn thousands of dollars every month just by taking surveys.

But if you choose the best Survey Sites, and work in an organised way, you can create a very useful side income for yourself. You can also earn more by referring others to survey sites. Check out these sites that will pay you everytime someone is referred by you.

Pros of Zap Surveys

  • A good payment for your first survey.
  • Mobile apps are a convenient way to earn whilst you are out and about
  • Donations made to charity when you complete surveys
  • Available to both iPhone and Android phone users
  • Good reviews

Cons of Zap Surveys

    • A high cash out sum
    • Low earning opportunity
    • Dont qualify for surveys

Final Thoughts

Zap Surveys is a convenient way to earn a small amount, and offers a guaranteed $6 incentive to get you started.

Working your way towards the $25 cash out will probably take you some time however, especially if the surveys become few and far between and/or you don’t qualify for many surveys.

Star Rating 2/5- A $6 bonus to get you started is a good incentive, but you will have to work really hard to reach the $25 cash out sum. 

There are also numerous complaints about it being very difficult to qualify for surveys as I found out myself, but to be fair that is the way it goes with most Survey platforms.

2 Star Rating

Our Number 1 Recommendation

It can be very frustrating putting your valuable time into taking surveys when you get so very little in return. I know because that is how I felt when I used to do them. I got really frustrated with the amount of time I had to use up just to make a dollar or two here and there.

It became an even more frustrating experience when I felt I had to give up because I never thought I would reach the cash out sum……That all changed however when I realised there is a much better way to make money online.

I discovered it was really easy to set up your own online business with a website……and it is also completely free to get started!

By signing up for free to THIS PLATFORM you can get started with 2 Free websites, free training  and unlimited support today.

I got to $27.52 in Zap Surveys and decided it was time to cash out. I used PayPal and within literally 10 seconds I got an email from PayPal saying “You’ve got money. Apps that Pay, LLC has just sent you $27.52.” Extremely pleased with this! I’m working on getting another 25 right now haha.

    Admin - May 30, 2017

    Hi Greg,
    That’s great. Thanks for confirming your payment, it’s good to know that this App does pay.
    I appreciate you dropping by to let my readers know.

    Ayobami - August 12, 2017

    But I have not been having surveys after the 6$

      Admin - August 14, 2017

      Hi Ayobami,
      Same here, I didn’t qualify for any either. You could try to reach the cash out by logging in every day. But like Rod says below…it’s going to take a long time. Thanks for sharing your experience of Zap Surveys

        Anne - March 13, 2018

        Me to I just signup yesterday than after i got my $6 i cant get any survey anymore.. can you tell me how to discontinue my account in zap? Pls help me

          Admin - March 13, 2018

          Hi Anne,
          I had the same experience with Zap Surveys unfortunately. Like all survey platforms, whether you get surveys depends upon your demographic.
          I would try other survey platforms if you aren’t getting surveys on this one. I find that I qualify for surveys on some sites, but not on others, so it’s worth shopping around. Good luck with your endeavours.

    Mohssine - September 30, 2017

    Hey . Please tell me if this app stay paying . I’m work on this right now and in my balance 10$ … I searched for payment proof online but there nothing. Please tell me if this app stay paying or no !?

      Admin - September 30, 2017

      Hi Mohssine,
      One of my readers says he got paid, and there are a number of reviews online from users stating they have been paid, but unfortunately I haven’t seen any screenshot proofs of payment anywhere either. I’m afraid I don’t have any proof myself as I gave up trying to qualify for surveys. Thanks for dropping by I’m sorry I can’t help further.

    Jazmine - January 14, 2018

    How long did it take?

    Parker - January 24, 2018

    Yes bro it’s good app I am @ $17.90 haha

      Admin - February 5, 2018

      Hi Parker,
      Let us know if you get paid once you reach the cash out of $25. Thanks for dropping by.

Rod - July 3, 2017

without any surveys, it would take more than 400 days to earn $25 if you login everyday

    Admin - July 4, 2017

    Hi Rod,
    Thanks for reading my review and your comment….really appreciated

Mary - December 22, 2017

I just reached $25.46 in about a months worth of time, i cashed out to my paypal and i recieved no email and my paypal still shows empty ……hmmm

    Brydie - January 9, 2018

    Same here so I questioned it and they said I had fraudulent activity and I need to delete my app or they will pursue further lol. But they won’t give you proof or details of said activity. So many bad reviews on people not being paid like this. Total scam!

Admin - December 23, 2017

Hi Mary,
I appreciate you sharing your experience with Zap Surveys. I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t been paid. I seem to be getting very mixed reviews here in the comments about this survey platform.
Please let me know if you manage to resolve it so my readers can be kept informed.
Thanks again Mary.

Admin - January 9, 2018

Hi Brydie,
Thanks for sharing your experience with Zap Surveys, I’m sorry to hear it wasn’t a positive one.

Karly - January 17, 2018

Did about 145 surveys(including the denied ones that give you like 4 cents) made it to 25.02 and cashed out a few hours ago, unsure as to how long it’ll take but didn’t get any email so let’s hope it works.

Admin - January 17, 2018

Hi Karly,
Thanks for the feedback you have given. Let us know if Zap Surveys pay you.
I appreciate you dropping by.

    RT - February 2, 2018

    hi, have you got your zap money?

Brandy Barwick - January 18, 2018

At my $25, but unsure how to cash out with my PayPal, there is no option

    John - January 21, 2018

    Im pretty sure you should create a paypal account using your Zap Surveys Login Email if you don’t already have one. Personally I waited over the 30 day period and still no Money. I’m starting to question this site. If anyone knows how we can contact them please let me know.

Jolanda - January 21, 2018

I have claimed my $25 rewards via paypal on 20/12/17, and I still haven’t received anything yet. And i didn’t get any notification at all. Even though, it does show in the history.

    RT - February 2, 2018

    Have you paid through zap surveys now?

Raji - February 5, 2018

Hi I have 25.04,how much time it will take add my paypal acount

    Admin - February 5, 2018

    Hi Raji,
    Not sure about that, some Zap Survey users here seem to be having a few problems getting paid. Let us know if Zap Surveys do pay you what you are owed.

Shawn Sigston - February 19, 2018

I just cashed out of zap with $25.03 about half hour ago. My zap history shows the payout to paypal but my paypal account didnt recieve it yet! Is it going to happen!

    Admin - February 19, 2018

    Thanks Shawn for updating us. This platform doesn’t sound good at all.

Sek Subman - February 20, 2018

I cashed out $25.06, but haven’t been paid even after 10 days… not even an email notification.

    Admin - February 20, 2018

    Hi Sek, It’s becoming clear that some members are being paid and some aren’t at Zap Surveys. The trouble is, with the cash out sum being so high at $25, you have to work your ass off to find out whether you will be one that gets paid or not.
    Hopefully potential new members will bear this in mind when signing up. Although the platform may be legit, it is difficult recommending them to anyone given the reports on non-payment.

      Sek Subman - February 28, 2018

      Hi Ray,
      I doubt if those saying they got paid are actually real. Have you seen a single screenshot of payment proof from them? I haven’t and I’ve been trying for 3 weeks to find single person who got paid and has screenshot of payment proof. I am starting to smell scam.

Admin - February 28, 2018

Hi Sek,
Hi Sek….Like you say there is no way of knowing if the comments really are genuine. There doesn’t appear to be any screenshot proofs anywhere (I’ve tried to find some too, but failed) so I wouldn’t recommend this platform. There are plenty of other survey platforms whose members have provided proof, so I would recommend trying those instead.

    Sek Subman - March 5, 2018

    My bad ! I spoke too soon… Eventually I got the payment delivered to PayPal. They take about 3-4 weeks for this, and without any communication or reply at all. So I thought it was a scam. I couldn’t find an option to upload the payment proof here, but I can confirm they do pay. But having said that, the reward per survey is not great, and the redemption threshold is high.

      Admin - March 5, 2018

      Hi Sek,
      Thanks for updating us. Good to know that, although payment was slow, Zap Surveys have paid. I’m hoping the other members who have complained about non payment in the comments here have also been paid.

Kelly - May 23, 2018

I managed to accumulate close to $50 and tried to redeem the payment. Was notified the payment would follow but never received additional instructions. After 1/2 dozen emails I finally received a response that they were suspending my account and not paying because of suspected fraud. Not true. No documentation or explanation just didn’t pay. I would suggest avoiding Zap or cash out early to test if they do pay.

    Admin - May 26, 2018

    Hi Kelly,
    Thanks for sharing your experience with Zap Surveys. I think it is completely unfair that they have simply not paid you on the basis that you have done something wrong, but haven’t explained what it is you have supposedly done.
    I agree with you about cashing out early, but getting to $25, which is very high, could mean having to waste a lot of your time anyway.
    You must have worked hard to have built your balance up to nearly $50.
    Thanks for warning my readers about your experience. Let us know however if they do decide to pay you.

Prabhat - July 1, 2018

Hey guys,I have just installed zap surveys app n wondered around the websites if it is legit or scam then i got in here n reading the reviews above i’m not being able to decide what to do now do i uninstall it or keep on..

    Admin - July 2, 2018

    Hi Prabhat,
    The reviews are very mixed, and therefore it is difficult to say with any certainty as to whether this platform is worth the time it will take to reach the high cash out. I think there are better options.

Dion - July 6, 2018

Just cashed out $25.10 but haven’t received payment…hoping it doesn’t take to long and actually works

    Admin - July 7, 2018

    Hi Dion,
    Let us know if Zap Surveys pay you….much appreciated.

Dion - July 7, 2018

Just to update everyone I got paid it went in about 12 hours later have a look for apps that pay in Facebook and you can message them there if you need to contact them

    Admin - July 7, 2018

    Thanks Dion for the update.

ANIX - August 20, 2018


    Admin - August 20, 2018

    Hi Anix,
    Sorry to hear about the difficulties you have been experiencing trying to get your payment. $250 is a lot of money so I really hope you manage to get it. The company that owns Zap Surveys is called Apps That Pay. They have a website and it has a link to contact them. The link to the website is HERE Please could you let me and my readers know how you get on.

Mojtaba - October 5, 2018

Hi, can you help me!
I can’t going to my Zap Surveys app with my email address!

Lin - October 21, 2018

Hello, I made a withdrawal of $ 55.42 on October 8, it has already passed the past 12 days of my retirement and the payment has not arrived, nor does it respond in any of its platforms, trust this application, as it has withdrawn money two times and the money came from 2 to 3 days, I do not know if I have any hopes of paying or just thinking that I got scammed … I retired a holiday, and they say that those days usually arrive 7 days or more, in the same way I already give it up for lost.

    Admin - October 21, 2018

    Hi Lin,
    If you are saying you haven’t been paid after having accrued $55.42 then that is very concerning.
    Have Zap Surveys given any reason for non payment, or are you still waiting to hear back from them?
    I would be grateful if you could let me and our readers know what happens. It is a lot of money (especially considering how long it has probably taken for you to earn that much) so I really hope you hear something soon.
    Thanks for sharing your experience of Zap Surveys.

Roby - November 21, 2018

I have been using this apps since last month, i have 3 times cash out and for the last cash out is not processed yet, i dont know why, it has been 14 days

Roland - October 5, 2019

Hi everyone. I recently have used Zap Surveys. I had a balance of $26.72, so I decided to cash out. I felt so stupid when I looked every day to see if my email was there, but I forgot to check my spam folder. I have screenshots for proof if anyone needs. They do pay you, but sometimes they have so much people creating fake accounts to do it they sometimes deem you’re not a real one. Very unfortunate for those who do spend time trying to make some cash, but sadly we know how people like to be.

    Admin - October 10, 2019

    Hi Roland,
    Thanks for your feedback on Zap Surveys…much appreciated.
