Surveys for money? In Israel? YES!!

Back in the old days before we came back to Israel, I often answered online surveys, and I'd be paid pocket change ($3-$5 per survey) via PayPal. It was an easy way to pad my budget - and I really missed that after making aliyah! I had thought that was all just part of my old life - and obviously, I am no longer eligible to answer US based surveys. But then I discovered that it doesn't mean I can't still get some extra cash here, as there are survey sites here as well!

 First, signed up for Panel4All a while back, and so can you. This site works differently than what I had gotten used to before I made aliyah - they don't pay in cash. Instead, participants earn points that can be cashed out for gift cards. Depending on your demographics, you'll be invited to answer different surveys. I usually get several emails a week about surveys and when I have 5 minutes, I answer them. Sometimes the surveys close out before I get around to answering though, so don't be surprised if that happens from time to time.

I've added a few more survey sites to my repertoire, and I figured some of you out there may want to use them to earn some side-money, too! I've checked out a number of different ones, and this list includes sites that are specifically for Israel, as well as international ones. Check them out, too!

iPanel  -- 
you'll have to answer a long survey to complete your registration, but then you'll be able to start earning credits toward a gift card!

Midgam Panel -- this site pays out via Paypal or gift cards, you'll be able to choose what's better for you when the time comes. Paypal seems to charge fees for this, so I prefer the gift card option.

SekerNet -- this site pays via check or bank transfer when you reach the minimum payout threshold of 55nis.

PanelView - this site has some ability to function in English - mine defaulted to English once I answered the survey and told them my first language is English!

Survey Savvy is an international survey site that accepts members from all over the world. I don't know exactly how often Israel-based members will get surveys, but I'm willing to sign up and see what happens.

Palm Research accepts international members AND pays cash via Paypal! 

PaidViewpoint accepts international members, pays via Paypal, and is fairly anonymous - the registration process is also super simple!

Vivatic is more than just surveys - you can also do small writing jobs and other tasks to get paid. If you want to focus on surveys only, you can do that!

I'm also a member of some other sites that only do email referrals. If you'd like to join them, please drop me a note asking me to refer you to "Blueberries" or "MySeker". 

Fiverr can also be a source of quick income. Some jobs are too lengthy to be worthwhile, but if you find your niche, you can actually pick up a bunch of quick $5 jobs each week!

 hope you found this list helpful - I know some people use survey sites as their "side hustle" successfully, and I hope you can too!

Feel free to share this list with others who may want to make some side income answering short surveys!


  1. how does this work with regard to tax declaration, if you get cash payments?

    1. Hi Sue, honestly I am not qualified to answer that question. I wonder if one of the Israeli survey sites can help you figure that out. Best to ask them, maybe?

    2. You are probably right. Thanks anyway.
