After some more reader feedback we decided to conduct yet another review on an online survey company that offers cash in exchange for completing online tasks. Welcome to our CashCrate Review!
We look at how it works, if you can make money and how to do it, if its a legitimate opportunity to make money online or is it just a scam, common complaints people have and if its a good fit for you.
What Its All About
- Company: CashCrate
- URL: CashCrate.com
- Price: Free
- Rating: 2.5 out of 5
Survey and off completion companies are used to collect data from consumers. Larger product companies pay for the information gathered by companies like CashCrate.
How Does it Work?
First you need to sign up by visiting the website. Its as easy as putting in your details, handing over your email and your done.
After this you will get access to the system and will receive emails notifying you of surveys and offers for you to participate in exchange for payment.
Payment varies depending on task.
The main CashCrate Complaints people generally have tend to be the same with most of the online survey companies.
There are not enough surveys and offers to complete
If you are wanting to make decent money then you will need a steady flow of surveys and offers to complete. This is not the case as you will not qualify for most of them. This leads us on to the next problem..
You Don’t Always Qualify for the Surveys they do Send You
Because these surveys are designed to collect data from a specific type of consumer, you wont always qualify to complete them. If its targeted at woman and you are a man then you can’t complete it.
The problem is you won’t know if you qualify or not until you have spent 10 minutes filling out the application form.
The Payment is Very Low
After spending 10 minutes qualifying it will take you around 10 – 15 minutes to complete the survey. This brings you up to 20 – 25 minutes in total and you have made a big $0.20
YES, that is not a typo, you make 20 cents
The Spam is Crazy!
It is highly suggested that you supply an alternative email because your inbox will get bombarded with emails from CashCrate.
Is it Legit or a Scam?
This is normally one of the first questions that come up.
Is CashCrate Legit?
To this I say yes, yes CashCrate is legit and you will make money doing it. This means that CashCrate is not a Scam.
Many people are doing this and have had some sort of success with it.
The real question is…
Can You Make Money?
Yes you most definitely can.
Many people have and still do. I guess its not bad if all you want to do is make a couple extra bucks here and there. You will also need a lot of spare time.
Is it the best way to make money online?
No most definitely not.
Personally I put more value on my time than a measly $1 an hour. In fact it would be very unlikely for me to make $1 an hour because you won’t get 4 surveys an hour for you to complete let alone qualify for them all.
So How Do I Make Money Online?
I make money online by doing affiliate marketing. I build simple websites that sell other companies products and I make commission.
This happens in the background while I live my life with my family.
It wasn’t something that I taught myself or accidentally fell in to. I found some amazing training that taught me everything I needed to know about making money online with affiliate marketing.
