Is SpiderMetrix a legit survey site?
SpiderMetrix is a legit survey site that pays individuals looking for opportunities to make extra money by taking surveys. It has been around for some time, so it is definitely not a scam. The company collects opinions from its members to improve its clients’ business interests.
Data Privacy: Any reason for concern?
SpiderMetrix has always protected its members’ right to privacy and ownership of their data. Therefore, your personal data may be shared with third parties in an anonymized and aggregate form.
How to get started
Registration is free. There is no app for this site, but you can access it via your web browser. Go to the website and click register; enter your name, email, birthdate, and nationality. Next, choose your desired spider name and password. Finally, click submit and start using the site. International members are accepted, provided you are at least 14 years old and above.
What about the survey experience?
Spidermetrix can be accessed via mobile phone. However, it is not very user-friendly on a mobile device, so it is best to use the website on a computer or tablet. In addition, users claim that you might not get many survey invitations, especially if you do not live in Australia. Thus, it might take many months before you can collect the minimum number of points to cash out. Nevertheless, many users described the site as nice and easy to use.
How much can you make on SpiderMetrix?
You will earn between $0.6 to $1.8 per survey. So one SpiderMetrix point is about $0.10. The minimum threshold is $50, 300 spider points you can redeem for PayPal cash, Amazon vouchers, donations, or use for auctions where you bid using your points.
Other ways of making money are through referrals, where you will earn 1 point for every 20-minute survey that your invitees complete, and competitions that are held weekly where you can have the chance to earn more points.
What can prevent me from cashing out?
SpiderMetrix has checks to ensure that respondents are attentive and honest when answering surveys. Answers that fail these checks will result in the survey submissions being rejected. Moreover, you are allowed to have one account only. Should you attempt to create more than one account in the hope of earning more money, this may be regarded as fraud which will result in you being banned, and all money accumulated in your report will be forfeited.
