Looking for a survey site that will earn you a decent income? Take a look at this ySense review to see what you can expect to earn.
Fed up with your day job? Or just looking to earn a bit extra in your spare time? Then one of the easiest ways is by completing online surveys you don’t even have to move from your chair. But some sites pay better than others, so the question is, is ySense worth your time?
What is ySense?
ySense is a survey site that rewards you for your opinions.
Taken from their website:
ySense is a global online community with multiple earning options. Join now and start earning with paid online surveys, cash offers, Appen Tasks and more!
Is ySence a legitimate survey site?
Until July 2019, ySense was better known as ClixSense.
ySense is operated by Prodege, a company based in Manhattan that also runs Swagbucks. Prodege has over 100 million members across its survey sites, so you can be sure it’s genuine.
ySense has some well-paid surveys and plenty available. Not only that, but there are options to get paid for completing small jobs (through a company called Figure Eight) and you can also earn for signing up for trials. For example, you could join Cornerstone (a shave club) and get paid $4. These trials aren’t exclusive to ySense but certainly worth considering.
ySense also offers a referral scheme. Get your friends and family to sign up and you can earn when they do.
There are a lot of surveys that require you to be in some kind of senior management role. Being honest, I don’t know many people who manage in large financial organisations, but I guess people that earn £100k+ every year won’t be completing surveys for $1.
Although I filled out my profile as best I could, I did find that I didn’t qualify for a lot of surveys that were on offer to me. It can be quite frustrating to click through 25 surveys only to be told that you don’t qualify.
You can also earn money by entering competitions. However, these are things like $500 Amazon gift cards, which are notorious for being a con. I would avoid doing this as you end up having to give a lot of personal details away and you have no idea where they end up.
How much can you earn with ySense?
Pay is quite inconsistent for ySense. For example, a 3-minute survey could pay $0.80, whilst a 20-minute survey could pay $0.67.
On average though, surveys are quite well paid compared to some other sites, so expect to earn around £6-7 per hour.
Unlike ClixSense, ySense now allows you to withdraw your earnings through PayPal. This is far simpler compared to their old system of using Payoneer.
Or you can use something called Tango card. This allows you to convert your earnings into digital gift cards (such as Amazon) for free. My card took 3 days to arrive by email after my order.
My ySense review conclusion
Pay is fairly decent from ySense. However, there’s no getting over the fact that it can be an absolute pain being thrown out of survey after survey. I’m still going to persevere with the site though, as you can find the odd gem.
