One way our members can redeem their points from taking online surveys for cash is via PayPal. After earning at least 1,000 points, our members can have their reward deposited directly into their PayPal account within one to three business days. PayPal allows users to transfer funds to their bank account, send money to friends and make purchases. Learn more about how PayPal works and how you can use it to your advantage with Branded Surveys rewards.

What is PayPal?

PayPal is an online digital financial service that works similarly to a bank. Once you set up an account, you can keep money in it or connect credit and debit cards for money transfers or purchases. You can transfer money between different accounts easily.

PayPal is available in more than 200 countries around the globe. It’s been around for over 20 years and has inspired the development of other online financial systems like Apple Pay, Venmo and Google Pay.

Benefits of PayPal

Whether you choose to have your Branded Surveys rewards deposited into a PayPal account or not, using PayPal in your daily life offers many benefits you won’t find with traditional banking services.

Easy to Use

Nearly anyone can use PayPal via its website or app. Their user-friendly interface makes it easy to connect to other accounts and transfer, deposit or send money.

No Fees

PayPal doesn’t charge as many fees as a traditional bank. You don’t have to pay anything to keep your PayPal account active if you aren’t using it, and basic functions like sending money to family, friends or your bank account are free. However, there are scenarios where you might have to pay a small fee. Stay aware of these fees so you can avoid them at all costs.

Fast and Convenient

If you’re used to mailing checks, you no longer have to spend money and time on stamps or physically mailing envelopes. PayPal is completely digital and eliminates the need for postage. Not to mention you don’t have to worry about your check getting lost in the mail. Just log into your PayPal account and choose how much money you want to send to someone. In two to three business days, the person on the other end will receive your money and not have to deal with the inconvenience of cashing a check!

Safe Online Shopping

PayPal offers an extra level of protection when you use your account to make purchases. If you purchase an item that never arrives or doesn’t match its description, PayPal ensures that you receive a refund. PayPal also offers fraud prevention, dispute resolution, 24/7 transaction monitoring, secure encryption and purchase protection around the world.

Cashback Shopping

When you use the PayPal debit Mastercard or PayPal credit card to shop, you can earn cashback on qualifying purchases. If you’re looking for a way to earn money from making a purchase, using your PayPal account is the way to go. Both the PayPal credit and debit Mastercards offer 2% cashback on all purchases.

How Do I Make a PayPal Account?

Before you can create a PayPal account, you must decide whether you want a personal or business account. Next, click on the signup button, enter your name, email address and create a password to activate your account. You will need to confirm your email address, and then your account is ready to go.

Once you have created your account, you can link it to one of your credit or debit cards or directly to a bank account.

How Does PayPal Work?

After you sign up for a PayPal account, you can start using it immediately. If you plan to use it for online shopping or transferring money to others, you need to either deposit money into your account or have it linked to a credit or debit card or your bank account.

How to Accept Payment on PayPal or Send Money

If someone wants to send you money, PayPal will notify you via the app and/or email you. The money is automatically accepted and deposited into your PayPal account. If you wish to send or request funds, simply click on the send/request tab.

How to Transfer Money From PayPal to Bank

First, your account must be linked to an eligible debit card or bank account. Next, click on “transfer money” and choose where you want the money to go. Follow the instructions to complete the transaction.

What are PayPal Fees?

PayPal only charges fees for the following circumstances:

  • Receive money from a purchase
  • Receive payment from a country that is not yours
  • Sending money from a debit or credit card
  • Sending money from your PayPal account to an ineligible prepaid or debit card

How to Get a PayPal Card

Anyone with a PayPal account can obtain a PayPal debit card. All you need to do is click on “Get the Card” on the PayPal Cash Card web page and complete the required steps.

How to Earn Money for Your PayPal Account

If you would like to start adding funds to your PayPal account, start taking online surveys with Branded Surveys! Every time one of our members completes an online survey, we reward them with points. Once their point total reaches at least 1,000, they have the option to redeem a reward. They can exchange their 1,000 points for $10 in cash sent directly to PayPal, or choose from one of our many gift cards. Even if you only take a few surveys every day, it’s a fast and easy way to keep cash flowing into your PayPal account. Once you cash out, the cash will appear in your PayPal account within one to three business days.

There’s no limit on how many surveys you can take in a day. Get paid for your opinion while you’re relaxing this summer, hanging out at home or on a break at work.
