Pureprofile Description

Pureprofile is an Australian based market research company that pays you to participate. You can earn money by completing questionnaires, completing surveys, and even watching ads. Unlike other companies, the company sends you surveys according to your interests and demographic profile. The profile of members allows different businesses to target the consumers they want rather than send out surveys to random members.

Pureprofile Detailed Overview

There are many survey and get paid to sites that promise you high earnings, but one that has proved itself is Pureprofile. The company has been active since 2000, so they’ve been in business for almost a decade. A few things I really liked about this site is that there is no one per household account rule and they accept International members.

You can open an account within a minute and start setting up your profile. This part is a little daunting as there are a lot of questions to go through. You don’t have to complete this in one go, but the idea is that the more of the profile you complete, the more you receive offers from companies.

The surveys you get can earn you anywhere from 5p to £4. I found that most of them are in the lower paying range from 30p to £1. However, the company pays you according to the length of the survey. You won’t spend 15 minutes to complete a survey only to make a few cents. The longer the surveys, the more you’ll get paid.

You’ll get invites anywhere from 2-5 times a month. Some of the surveys are short little questionnaires or 1 minute video commercials. While the shorter ones pay out less, you are still earning good money for the effort you put in. Earning 30-50p for a minute of my time is still worth it to me (Note: The money is calculated in Euros and the payout limit is 25 Euro).

You can request payment once you reach payout limit and they will either wire transfer to your bank account or send it to you by check. Most people will want the wire transfer, but I prefer check since it’s an international company. I haven’t heard any complaints from people who’ve used the wire transfer, but it’s just a personal choice. Payment is usually sent to you within 3-4 weeks.

There is a referral program too. Every time somebody you refer earns £5.00, you earn £1. But this is only for the first £5 which is a little disappointing as there are many sites that pay you as long as your referrals are active. It would be great if you can earn a lifetime commission at a lower commission rate.

Pureprofile Reputation

Overall, Pureprofile is one of the better survey sites out there. They actually pay you and are reasonable with how much you get paid. Other sites have you spending 15-30 minutes to earn a dollar or two which is a big waste of your time. The biggest complaint about the site is the lack of survey invitations, but I read somewhere that you can actually get surveys directly just by logging into your account, so that’s something you should definitely do to get more surveys. I highly recommend Pureprofile if survey work is something you like to do.

Not too good

I joined this site last month with the hope that I could earn a little extra income. And it was difficult for me in finding a survey site in which international members are welcome because most of them only accepted sign ups from US and Canada. I check back everyday for surveys to complete. And up until now, I received none of them. Anyway, I’m not saying it’s a scam. Maybe it turns worthy for those people who live in other countries which they prefer. Even though filling out my profile was a little bit of fun, all I did was wasting my time.

Conclusion:

I wouldn’t suggest this to any international members.

Not good for international members

Like almost every survey site, this one says that international members are accepted, but they forget to mention that they won't get any surveys. I've been a member there for over 7 months, and until now I didn't receive any surveys to do. Maybe it's because of my country, but the fair thing for them to do is to announce to members that they will actually receive offers and surveys only if they live in a certain country.

I completed my profile very well, took me long enough to do that, but the results were not what I was expecting.

Works but not good

Pureprofile is one of many survey sites I am a part of. Apart from other good ones like Survey Spot, this one is almost worthless. Even though I have never made payout and gave up on this site only after a month I now it's not a scam. I have seen plenty proofs of payment online. I gave up on it because even though I filled out all my profiles, I still got only one survey in a month. Even to this day, six months later, I've only seen three more pop up in my inbox. Even though it is legit, it's a complete waste of time and will take way too long to ever make their high payout of $25. I would suggest sticking to the more popular survey sites and stay away from the little dogs because they either are a waste or complete scams.

A decent Effort

I joined about 1 month ago and I have to say it’s good, but not an elite survey website. Just like most other websites that do surveys you have to make sure you do all of your profiles and fill them out. It took them about a full week until they actually sent me survey offers which is a little on the long side, considering some survey sites send in as little as 24 hours.

I’m only getting like 3 surveys a month or so which is not good at all. On average from the survey sites I go to regularly I am getting about 15 a month at minimum. The surveys are clear and easy to understand, the interface for the site is also good. Payout of $25 is actually high, considering how little surveys you get, so far I have $5. On the flip side, the surveys did confirm pretty fast for surveys I took. This is a site that I’d recommend for a couple of dollars on the side, but there are better survey options out there.

Earned a few CND from this

Like most survey sites, this one is reasonable. Don't expect survey sites like this one to be get-rich-quick schemes, because they're not. Pureprofile sends about 3 invites (sometimes 5) a month to me, and the surveys take about 10 minutes tops (if you're swift). I've been paid a few dollars, although not a goldmine, enough to buy me that coffee. Highly recommended for international consumers such as myself (I'm from Canada) who have tons of time to kill and want a bit of money. Most survey sites are American-based, so it pretty much disqualifies a lot of international people. This one is a good choice. :)

Pureprofile

Pureprofile is a mainly a survey website which I have been a member for around 1 and 1/2 years now. The upside of this website is that the surveys are clear, easy to understand and more importantly once you have been sent an e-mail to complete a survey it will credit your balance with at least 1p pence (I’m a UK user) even if you then don’t qualify to complete the survey.

Some of the downside I experienced throughout this time is that the surveys don’t get e-mailed too often, their threshold to withdraw money is £25 ( I am on about £20 after all this time) so it will take you a good while to get some money from it.

The one thing I still need to see is the speed of payment once their threshold has been reached.

Not For Me

I joined up with PureProfile about six months ago, and I have to say I am deeply disappointed in the site. It was a fairly lengthy process filling in my profile, with 20 sections, each one having between one to ten questions in each. I completed every single one and waited, waited, and waited some more - but nothing! It says they accept international members, but it looks like they don't have any surveys to offer for members from Ireland. I'm still registered there and check in quite often, but there is never any surveys for me to take.

A good GTP site for International Members!

I have to say that this is a pretty legitimate site because it actually pays. Surveys take little time to complete and are not lengthy like in other GTPs. Only problem is that you get only a few surveys here and there so it kind of takes time to cash out in this site. A cool thing I like about this site is that you can earn points and get gift cards with them. You can spend them on Amazon and other well recognized sites. Another thing I like about this site is that it pays you directly into your bank account which makes the money reach you even faster. International members are welcome on this site which is a big relief for some because it is kind of hard to find a GTP site that accepts members all over the world. Well this one does, and the best part is that it is legitimate.

This Site Is Great So Far

I just joined this site about a month ago after a friend referred me to the site. She had personally been paid by them and showed me the proof on her bank statement. So far, I am very impressed. The site is very easy to navigate, and I just love that they send surveys and offers that I am really interested in. What makes it even better is that I actually qualify for the surveys they send me. I have not yet reached the minimum payout, but I am hoping to do that soon. Having seen legitimate proof of payment, I am confident that this site will pay as promised.

I definitely recommend this site to anybody who enjoys taking surveys and wants to earn money by doing it.

Legit but slow survey site

I had been a member of Pure Profile for more than six months. You have to go through several profile surveys and carefully answer each question. Then you have to wait for survey offers. The first step I didn’t mind, I had joined several survey sites and all of them had lengthy questionnaire. But about the waiting period, the survey offers are too few and far in between. Maybe because of demographics, they had little opportunities for us. Well, still I stayed and answered those few surveys they sent me. I am still waiting for a few more to reach the minimum pay-out then I’ll decide if I will continue or not.

Amazing site

I signed up for this site and was surprised by how easy it is to navigate and also the amount you get every time you click on an advertisement. I am currently on 65 cents from clicking on 5 links. I would highly recommend this site to anyone looking for a few extra dollars.

They don't waste your time!

It's good to see another international survey site that has all the signs of being legit. I've been with Pureprofile now for just over a month and so far my experience with them has just been positive. While they may not send out surveys as regular as other sites, when they do send them out you actually qualify for them. They don't waste your time and get you to answer 4-5 questions before telling you that you did not qualify. So far I've got 3 surveys and I've been credited for all of them. I hope to reach payout by Christmas, and I believe I can reach that. Recommended!

Pureprofile is hit or miss

I was very excited for the chance to add a new site to the list of ones that I use that are actually legit; however, my experience on Pureprofile quickly disappointed. I had to fill out a painstakingly long profile on myself - literally pages upon pages of questions on every subject imaginable. I trudged through it though, assuming that I would be rewarded with at least a *few* opportunities to earn, but I was offered none when checking the "NextButton" portion of the site, and my E-mail. Three weeks later I still have received zero offers.

It looks like a very professional site, I just must not meet anyone's criteria.

My Experience With Pure Profle

At the beginning "i loved this site" and was very hopeful about it because it is such a nicely designed, professional looking site and the questionnaire's were even "dare I say" interesting. I found myself constantly checking every few hours for new next button opportunities, and I was just about to moan after a major decline of next opportunities. When much to my delight a survey popped up, but every time that I tried to click into it my net-book froze and wouldn't let me near it. This is not happening with anything else. I don't know why it is happening, but I can't use it. Hopefully the problem will be resolved soon because I really do like the site.

This one is a keeper

I have been a member of Pureprofile since before the site went international. It doesn't take long at all to reach the payout limit of $25 & I enjoy my time on the site.

Yes, there is a long process to set up your profile, but this just determines how many surveys & ads they will put on your Next Button & makes sure that they are directed to your needs & interests.

What I really like about the site is that they put the money directly into your bank account - yes, it did take them a while to pay me once I requested payout, but in saying that they still paid me so they are legit & definitely one to stick around for.

We definitely need more sites like Pureprofile & less of the scam sites.

A good international site to earn a few extra pounds

I really like this site and although it may seem a little confusing to use initially, once you are signed up and fill in all your profile and interests you can sit back and wait for a contact e-mail directing you to an advertiser targeted by the information you have provided. The average payment per completed contact is around £1 which is comparatively generous, but opportunities are less frequent than some other sites. Payout is made by check and can be requested once you have reached a minimum of £25. I am not quite there yet so cannot comment on the reliability of payment, but have not come across complaints from other users regarding this aspect. Overall, Pure Profile is a useful addition to a portfolio of paid survey sites to help top up your bank account every now and then.

It's pretty good

I’ve been a member for almost two months, but haven’t yet reached payout. However, I’m definitely going to stick with this site for a long time to come. The way the site works is pretty fun and neat, since you don’t have to go through a bunch of screener questions and get disqualified. Another thing I really like is how they pay you for the time you spend per survey, not a fixed amount like most other sites. This site is really a great opportunity, especially for international members, since most sites just accept residents of the US. There are only a few things I don’t like about this site: I wish they’d send more surveys to me, and I wish there were more options for paying out.

Pureprofile

I have been a member of this site for a couple of years now, and it is great. You get sent quite a few surveys, and they are so short that they don't take up all your time. You can also be part of the footy tipping. The best thing is it is free. I have personally received lots of gift cards. These arrived within the week of requesting them. I would highly recommend this program.

Pretty good survey site

There aren't a lot of survey sites that accept users outside the US and Canada. This is the primary reason why I like Pure Profile. They accept international users and this is good, so that users like me can join and be part of their community. I also like that signing up is a breeze. It actually took me less than 5 minutes to sign up and verify my account. The site layout is very easy to navigate and everything is pretty much easy to find. The FAQs are right there, and everything a member like me needs to know can be found easily.

I have only received 1 survey from the time I joined, but I'm pretty satisfied with that. I know I'm still a long way off from the payout, but it's OK. I'm sure I'd get more surveys as time goes by. I believe the site is pretty stable, and I have read a lot of positive feedback and that they really pay their members. This is very good. And I haven't encountered anyone claiming the site is a scam, so I do login every now and then to check if I get any new surveys. Definitely worth a try, though it's kinda slow.

Pretty good

I think this site is pretty good even though I have not reached the payout limit yet. I immediately took advantage of their referral program where each time someone signs up under me I got $1 everytime they made $5. In a average month I get around 3 to 4 invitations. The pay is pretty decent because you get 20 cents per minute for the surveys that you take. Another thing I like about them is they pay 20 cents for each minute you take a survey on the phone. Even though I have never cashed out with them, I would still recommend others to them because they have paid others. I am however close to payout. I also like the fact that for each invitation that I get I qualify for that survey because they send them to me according to my profile. So I don't really get unwanted invitations or invitations that I don't qualify for. You also get great support from this site.
