How Much Can You Earn With Zap Surveys?

Zap Surveys Review

Thanks for checking out our review of Zap Surveys.

Lots of online users are trying survey apps to help them earn extra cash. However, there are a lot of survey apps available to choose from, so you need to make sure you’re choosing the right one.

There are lots of things to consider when making a choice including how many surveys are available, what others are saying about the app, whether there is a sign up bonus, and what the cash out sum is.

So in our review today we will be finding all this out. First however let’s take a look at how things work…

How Zap Surveys Works

Zap Surveys is free to download at the App Store, and GooglePlay, so you can use it either on an iOS or android phone.

While its main focus is surveys, the app also provides other options for people who want to earn money online. These alternatives help to ensure that you won’t get limited by a lack of surveys, and can still earn even if you don’t feel like sharing your opinions.

How much can you Earn with Zap Surveys?

Zap Surveys rewards you with gift cards for the time that you spend on each activity.

Some beginners spend a little time learning which activities are the most rewarding for them, and reach payout quickly.

By logging in every day, you can get a daily bonus of $0.03 added to your account. While this may not seem like a lot, it adds up.

While some tasks pay more than others, you might not always find it easy to complete the same type of task daily, and this app allows you to have a decent mix.

Some, such as sharing on social media, cannot be done frequently but are a good way to earn in a minute.

The surveys start at $0.50 and go up to about $1.50. They are placed into categories according to the provider, and you are free to complete any that you see in each section, and are qualified for, but that doesn’t mean you’ll complete a lot.

Every person who joins has a chance to get approx $6.25 as a welcome bonus.


Zap Surveys Bonus

A Good Sign Up Bonus For New Members

The bonus isn’t free, but it’s easy to get. You only have to complete a short survey with around eight questions, and the bonus will be added to your account.

The bonus can be withdrawn as soon as you reach the minimum payout of $25.00.

You cannot withdraw the bonus by itself. You must perform some sort of task on the site and reach the minimum by adding your other earnings from those. All activities count, and you can complete them at a pace that is right for you.

You can get a bonus of $0.50 from social media. The first time you share about the app on your social media account, such as Twitter, you’ll get the bonus.

If you share on several platforms, you’ll get a bonus for each one. For example, if you shared on Facebook and Twitter, you would receive a total of $1, but you would only be rewarded once for each platform.

If you know several people who like to do surveys, you can let then know about the app. You’ll get a bonus of $0.15 when they join by using your referral code.

This bonus is paid with your other earnings, and is not based on how frequently they visit the site, or any other prerequisite.

Once you reach $25, you can get your payout. The money can be sent to your PayPal account.

Zap Surveys Payments

Instant payments via PayPal or gift card

You can also request a Visa debit card, which is really convenient for shopping and even bill payment. Gift cards for many of your online purchases are also available.

Feedback from Users

At the time of writing (April 2020), The Zap Surveys App has a 4.5/5 on The App Sore from nearly 70,000 reviews. It also has a score of 3.7/5 from nearly 10,000 reviews on GooglePlay.

The majority of users are happy with their experience using the App, however some users complain about having issues getting logged in, and others state they haven’t been paid despite having reached payout.

Other Zap Surveys users wish that the site had more options for earning. While their partners for surveys are good, users of the app think that these partners limit the options for participants from some locations.

Others complain that they are asked a lot of questions before eventually not qualifying for the survey, making it extremely difficult to reach payout.

We have also received some mixed comments regarding payments in our comments section below.

What Are The Pros?

  • Zap Surveys partners with well known organizations like TabResearch and Peanut Labs to provide their surveys, so the questions are easy to understand, and the surveys are interesting.
  • The welcome bonus on this site is good, and will help you get to your first payout.
  • The site also has a referral program and other bonuses, which help you to earn money.
  • Your referral earnings aren’t dependent on how active your referrals are.

What Are The Cons?

  • Zap Surveys has a high minimum threshold, when compared to how much they pay for tasks. This means that doing a survey on occasion won’t get you to payout quickly.

Some Final Thoughts

Like all survey apps there are mixed reviews from users, some are happy with their experience using this App whereas others aren’t.

Zap Surveys give you a good start by giving you a good sign up bonus.

Unfortunately however that isn’t money in the bank because you have to reach the high threshold of $25. After getting your bonus it may be hard to build your account up quickly as either sometimes it’s not easy to find any tasks, or you may struggle to qualify for surveys.

You can earn from this site, but it could take you a while to cash out. On the whole we think there are better survey platforms available.

Star Rating 2/5-A survey platform that offers you the opportunity to earn from surveys whilst on the go. The pace of earning however is likely to be slow.

Are Surveys The Right Option For You?

If you’re happy earning a bit of extra pocket money taking surveys on apps like Zap Surveys, then that’s fine. The earning potential however is extremely limited.

If you are searching for a way to make a more substantial and sustainable income online, then you will find taking surveys a very frustrating experience.

Therefore instead we recommend you check out our top rated platform where we think your time will be better spent.

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. 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

        1. 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

          1. 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.

    2. 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 !?

      1. 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 any proof myself as I gave up trying to qualify for surveys. Thanks for dropping by I’m sorry I can’t help further.

  2. 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

    1. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    1. 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.

  5. 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.

    1. 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.

  6. 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!

    1. 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.

      1. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. 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.

  7. 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.

    1. 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.

  8. 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..

    1. 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.

  9. 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


    1. 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.

  11. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. Zap surveys didn’t pay me my 25.00 payout either and the only Avenue to talk to them is to send a message where they claim to get back to you in 1-2 business days. I’ve messaged them almost daily for a month. No cash out and no response! Scam!!

        1. Hi Michael,
          Sorry to hear about your experience with Zap Surveys. Given the mixed reviews we’ve had, and the difficulties some of our readers have had with payment, we recommend you look to other platforms to earn rewards.

  12. 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

  13. 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.
