Mindswarms Review

Mindswarms Review

Paid surveys are not a new term. It refers to a form of statistical survey where the participants or members are rewarded. The rewards are given through incentive programs. The reward is not much, though. Companies that run such programs create a platform that allows people from a specific group to become members and get paid for surveys and questions they complete. The whole concept revolves around getting paid for opinions and views.

Initially, market research companies would take data from social media platforms or dupe clients into partaking in surveys through shady means. However, this practice was deemed illegal hence the establishment of paid surveys.

There are many paid survey companies in the market currently. Sadly, a good number of these sites are scams. Naturally, when Mindswarms was brought to my attention as a type of paid survey site, the first thing was to find out whether it is legit or not; hence this review about Mindswarms is an answer to this and other questions.

Mindswarms is a paid survey company that rewards its users for their opinions and views. However, unlike other sites, with Mindswarms, you get to share your opinions through a video. This is a feature that makes this site stand out from the rest.


  • It has one of the highest rewards
  • Payment via PayPal
  • The survey invite frequency is quite low
  • You have to provide video answers for the surveys they offer

Features and Benefits

Mindswarms Features And Benefits

As mentioned above, Mindswarms is a site that rewards its members for sharing their opinions through videos.

Getting Started

Mindswarms Sign Up

To get started on Mindswarms, you first need to register and create an account on the official website. All you need to do is access the official website, click on the signup process, and proceed according to the instructions. To register with Mindswarms, you need to be at least 18 years old. You can download the app afterwards and access it through your mobile device. Anyone younger than 18, but not younger than 13 years can access the site under the supervision of an adult.

Note that you can only create one account on the site. While creating the account, you need to provide information in the first step. You will also need to create and confirm your password at this point. After this, you can proceed to the next step, which is completing the registration form. After doing so, you will become a certified member of the platform.

However, you can start receiving invites, even before you have completed creating your profile. Because the platform works on a video basis, you also have to create a profile video. The company uses the profile video to make certain that you qualify.

Ways of Making Money Through Mindswarms

Mindswarms Earning Methods

There are a couple of methods through which you can make money on Mindswarms. They include:

Completing Surveys

To start, you simply need to log in to the official website. This will give you access to a member dashboard. On the dashboard, you will gain access to all the available surveys. There are two types of surveys available on Mindswarms. The first type if the one-question survey. These are those that only require you to answer a single question, as the name suggests. This is the easiest one to complete. An example of a question in this category is, “what are your opinions on XXXX product?” The other type is multiple-questions. This type of survey has up to 7 questions that you must answer. Because of its complexity, the reward for this kind of survey is much higher.

All the surveys that appear on your dashboard are those for which you qualify. From the surveys that appear on your dashboard, you just have to apply for the survey that suits you best. Applying for the survey will require you to answer a few questions and submit them to the researcher. The researcher’s role is to review your answers and determine whether or not you can continue with the survey.

The researcher will take a maximum of 24 hours to complete the review process. Note that you can only apply for a survey once. Also, note that you do not get rewarded for the application process. However, if you end up passing the review process, the moment you complete the survey, you will receive your payment as well.

The survey involves either one or up to 7 questions that have to be answered via video. Creating the video answer is easier on the phone because these devices have an inbuilt microphone and camera. However, on a laptop with a webcam and a microphone, the process is also easy. If you wish to complete the surveys on the phone, you can download the Mindswarms app.

How Much Will You Make?

Mindswarms Opportunities

For the one-question surveys, you can get up to $10 after completing it. The multiple question survey types will earn you up to $50 upon completion. Compared to other sites, this rate for a single question is pretty good. The downside is that the frequency of the surveys is not as high as those platforms that offer a lower rate.

Like other survey sites on the internet, you can also make extra cash on Mindswarms by referring the platform to other users. All you need to do is use the referral link that you will have access to on your dashboard to friends. However, just sending the link will not earn you money. You only earn points when the referee uses the link to join the platform. Despite all my efforts, I wasn’t able to find details on the payment for referrals on the official Mindswarms website.

Payment Mode

Mindswarms Services

The money that you make through Mindswarms’ video surveys can only be withdrawn via PayPal. Therefore, you will be required to create an account and provide its details for you to cash out via PayPal. To get a PayPal account, you need an email, and this works as your account number. You can access it 24 hours after submitting the video. If it takes more than a day to reflect in your account, you can contact the support team, which typically respond within 24 hours. In my opinion, this 24 hours payment system is quite impressive compared to other platforms that pay using points. Unlike other platforms, this one does not have a payment threshold. This means that you can start withdrawing from the first dollar you make.



Some features that stand out about this platform include:

  • The payments are rewarded in the regular currency as opposed to points for redeeming
  • The amount for one survey is quite high compared to other sites
  • You can get access to the surveys via mobile app or through the website on your computer
  • The surveys are posted on your dashboard and not email as is with other sites.
  • Mindswarms has one of the most decent support teams in the market. All you have to do is fill a form, send an email, or call them if the need arises.
  • Mindswarms is also open to global members. This feature is not available on many other platforms.


  • It has one of the highest rewards
  • Payment via PayPal
  • The survey invite frequency is quite low
  • You have to provide video answers for the surveys they offer



What Do Others Say?

Mindswarms Members Review

While preparing for this review, I read through some consumer reviews. Most of these reviews are positive. Most users seem impressed by the rates and the ease of using the system. However, there are a few reviews where clients complained about the frequency of the surveys. In my opinion, the greater issue is the fact that you have to apply for a survey before you are allowed to take it and that it takes 24 hours to get approved.


Mindswarms is a unique survey website that takes video surveys. The site offers high rewards for each survey. Anyone that is above 18 years old can register for membership regardless of their nationality. I would recommend that you read through the terms of service before registering to the site. files are essential for an optimized website.
