Many survey sites out there market to kids under 18. But are they safe? It’s understandable that kids want to start making money to start buying their own things and survey sites can make that possible.

As a teen, you’d want to know that the survey sites you’re visiting would have your parents’ approval.

As a parent, you’d want to know that your child is using survey websites that are safe. You’d also want to know that the content on the site is appropriate for younger users.

Here are twelve paid survey sites that are geared toward kids and are committed to having kid-friendly content. The minimum user age on each site varies, so we’ll share this information here as well.

Also, it’s important to note that these sites require parental consent for any member under age 18. Check them out and see if any of these survey sites can help your child earn some spending cash.

  1. This sounds interesting for the kids and will prepare them for bigger business consciousness. But, does this apply to children in Africa, or the developed world, where the only reliable address is their parent’s office address because the house address is not reliable?

    • They could always try it and find out. The only thing they have to lose is the time it took to complete the surveys.

  2. This is an interesting list! Will they send the payments directly to the kids? In that case, how do they verify that the accounts do belong to kids?

  3. Hi,
    I’m 12 years old and I’m trying to save up at least $500 for a dog. But none of these things really helped me because I live in Australia and in a small town where the people are mean and don’t care. The websites are for American kids and the things don’t work for me because no one wants a baby sitter here. Someone please help me and give me advice.

    • First, do keep in mind this website is in the US. However, there are lots things you could do to make money. There are some other posts on our site with ideas that might help. They include ways to make money recycling paper or selling pop can tabs. There are several on how to make money as a teen or a kid.

      Of course, living in Australia, not all of these will work for you. However, it’s possible some of the options could give you other ideas for ways to make money where you live. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box a bit. You never know, you could invent a whole new business idea! Good luck and don’t give up!

    • Hi I’m 12 years old as well and I’m glad to see that I’m not the only 12 year old out here. I’ve been wanting to sign up for ‘KidzEyes’ and have been having confusion in the registration process. During the registration process, do I have to enter my parent/guardian’s information or mine? Anyone have any advice for me? Please help me.

      • And also, on ‘KidzEyes’, how do I receive the money? Does it go to a credit card or can I get it physically? I’m confused and would be very thankful for any help I can get.

  4. I don’t know what to do. I’m trying to save at least £150 pounds for some new clothes, although my dad wont let me because apparently, its not safe.

    • There are also other posts on our site about ways kids and teens can make money. Maybe some of those would be better options or meet their approval. Check them out and good luck!

  5. Hi,
    I’m Arie I’m only 12 and where I live it is very quiet. Nobody’s ever outside. I live in new apartments, so nobody’s even around. I want to know how to make money to help my family. If you have any advice, I’d be delighted to hear it.

    • You could start by using the ideas in this post. We also have other posts on our site about ways kids and teens can make money. If your apartment has a central location for mail with a bulletin board, perhaps you could post something there about babysitting, cleaning, doing odd jobs, etc., with the permission of your parents, of course. I wish you luck!

  6. I’m trying to get money because my mom needs it for house bills and I what to be a billionaire.

  7. Hi. I’m trying to buy an iPhone. But, I really can’t. I’m so sad. My parents can’t afford one for me, but I’m trying my best. I just need someone to please help me before I go crazy. I hope this helps. ????

  8. So when it says, “You received money,” does it go to your credit card and to get it you have to go to a nearby bank to get the money from it? I’m confused. I just need money for an iPhone. Someone please help. I just need help right now. I don’t want to give up.

    • While I’m sorry your parents can’t afford to get you the phone you want, I do think it’s great that you are willing to work to get it for yourself. Maybe if you are confused about how the surveys work, you should talk to your parents and read through the terms and conditions as well as the FAQ’s and policies of the sites you’re interest in. Also, we do have other posts on this site with ideas about ways kids and teens can make money. Check them out to see if there are more ways you can earn the money you need. 🙂

  9. Hi, I have a 5 yrs old grandson and he loves to do surveys after seeing me doing them. We are in Malaysia. Do you have any surveys sites for him to try?

    • Hi, if you still want to do this maybe you could ask your caretaker to watch you or look up what makes it that age.

    • The majority of these sites want you to be a teenager just to make sure that you’re safe when you’re online. If you want to sign up, I would suggest talking to your parents or guardians to see if they can help you sign up and maybe create an account for you that you can use on their behalf as long as they’re okay with it and can supervise!

  10. Hi i am 13 years old an i tried each one of these links but not one of them worked. I’m not sure if it’s because of where i live or something

    • Hi Jemimah, I just checked and the links work. Def check your internet provider to make sure all is well. Good luck!

    • Hello! Most of these sites are for kids 13 years or older. But you can browser the site, we have articles on how younger kids can make some money too!

  11. Hi, I’ve been saving for ages because my dad only agreed to let me get a hamster if I paid for everything (I’m 13). I have got the hamster now and have enough money for about a year longer. I do get pocket money occasionally , but not much.

    Another idea for you all is using sites ,like music magpie, where you can sell old books and DVDs. I have managed to get about £40 off that so far, but my dad doesn’t really want me using these survey sites. do you have any idea as to how I can convince him to let me do so? if I have a good argument , he says I can use them.

    Any answers will be useful, thank you.
