Work at home companies that pay and those who don’t

I have tried almost everything to earn money working from home.  Anything from getting paid to surf the Internet, to taking surveys, answering questions, watching videos, and everything in between.   You may have as well.  Have you ever wondered if these companies really do pay or not?  I always wondered this myself so I decided to write a post about those who pay and those who do not.

Believe it or not, there are more companies that actually do pay you for your time and efforts as this list will confirm than those who do not.  (This list does not include sites where you have to pay a fee to join, otherwise this post would be very lengthy).  Some of the companies that I got paid from are so outdated and no longer in existence there would be no need to mention them but I did want to share with you those that are actively paying their users, workers, and members, and are still in business today.

I tried to list as many as I could think of in this post but if there are some that are not included here, it doesn’t mean that they do not pay or are not legitimate, it could be due to the fact that I have either not signed up or tried them as of yet, or I simply forgot to mention them.

Hopefully this list will be enlightening and validate the misconception about earning money from your computer.  Many of the companies that are on this list are still actively looking for people to get paid to work for them doing a variety of tasks.  If you would like to sign up, please click on the links below.  If there is a company or companies that you have gotten paid from or not, please leave me your comments below.
