I do surveys with Pinecone, and yes they do have points now for the surveys, but you can still use the points for cash. Each survey gives 300 points and 300 points is equal to $3.00 if you use the cash option. The cash option is under the “featured” part of the rewards page. I never had to change anything and when request the cash from points, it’s still sent to my paypal which is how I had it set up before, even though it goes through confirming your address. I haven’t looked much through other rewards offered, but from what I’ve seen they look pretty decent.
What has made PayPal so popular among both consumers and merchants, or clients and contractors, in this case, is that it is secure, allows for international payments and payments can be received almost instantaneously. When someone sends you a payment it arrives in your PayPal account within minutes compared to days when receiving an ACH deposit in your checking account or check by mail.
