  1. I agree that the cashout pay is very high. I have been with Inboxdollars for years and still not able to cashout. It is tedious and daunting with so little pay for surveys. Some you don’t get more than a penny for so it takes a long time to reach that $30 mark. But I not giving up. $30 is still $30 that I will one day get and need.
