If you are considering possibility to make good money from filling out survey forms, I will suggest you to join as many survey websites as possible. That is because there is a limit to the amount of surveys you can fill each day or month.
Second most important thing you should keep in mind is that you should never pay a site to register. All survey websites that ask visitors to pay to register to pay to get set amount of surveys are mere scam.
If you have completed a task but you haven't been paid, raise a complaint with them. If they turn deaf ear, start complaining through their social media channels.
You should withdraw your payments as soon as you have accrued enough amounts that can be withdrawn.
Create a secondary email for registering at survey websites. There are all chances that you inbox will soon be bombarded with promotional emails and other survey emails. If you use your primary email, chances are that your important emails may get lost in the swarm of emails that you receive each day.
Always check your spam/junk folder to make sure any important survey isn't delivered there.
