How to post a survey made with SurveyMonkey on SurveySwap?

Did you use SurveyMonkey as an external survey builder, and want to upload your survey to SurveySwap?

Our platform works with survey codes. If you built your survey using SurveyMonkey, you need to make sure you paste your survey code at the end of your survey.

It is important to position the unique survey code AFTER the submit button, so you will receive your respondents once they click on 'submit', and your respondents will receive their credits, once they click on the survey code.

When you use SurveyMonkey as your survey builder, you need a paid profile to add the SurveySwap unique code after your submit button.

Follow these easy steps:

(1) Get your Unique survey code.

From your Dashboard click on the 'My surveys' tab then click on the 'Add new survey' button.

You will a list of survey tools. Choose "Other".

Click 'My survey is ready' .

Then you will have to fill out some information about your survey. Click 'Next' when done.

Set the number of respondents and the Language for the survey. Additionally, you can add filters, to choose people who are eligible to fill out your survey. However, do not use too many filters, because the more people who are able to fill out your survey, the more respondents you will receive.

note: it is important to select the correct language you wrote your survey in, because only people who can speak the language you wrote your survey in, are able to fill it out.

Click next when done.

Follow the instructions on the Add Intro section. Click 'copy intro' and add it to the bottom of your survey's introduction in SurveyMonkey.

Your survey should have a written introduction. If not, add new block with question type “Descriptive text”.

Then tick the checkbox that says 'I have added the text to my introduction' . Click 'Next.'

Then, you will find the instructions for adding the survey code to the 'Confirmation message' in SurveyMonkey. Click 'copy code' button and it will automatically copy the survey code to your clipboard.

(2) Make sure you add the survey code to the survey you’ve made with SurveyMonkey

When you use SurveyMonkey as your survey builder, you need a paid profile to add the SurveySwap unique code after your submit button. See instructions near the bottom of this article if you need help with the free version.

When you are editing your survey on SurveyMonkey, Go to the Collect Responses section of your survey.

Click the name of the collector and access the collector options. You may need to click Show advanced options.

Turn on Custom Thank You (previously known as Thank You Page.)

Customize the message, and paste the unique SurveySwap code. Your changes save automatically.

Here you can write a thank you message and paste your unique SurveySwap Survey Code that you got.

Once you paste your unique code, you can go back to SurveySwap and continue by clicking on the checkbox beside 'I have added the text + code to my end of survey message' and clicking 'Next'.

(3) Publish your survey.

Add your SurveyMonkey survey link into the box to allow SurveySwap users to view and open the survey from within SurveySwap.

If you already have credits, you can publish the survey. If not, you may choose to earn credits and then publish or buy credits.

Note: You can earn credits by taking others' surveys or inviting your friends to SurveySwap.

Congratulations! You have created your survey. From here, you can copy your SurveySwap link and send it to your friends or social media, or ‘get respondents’ by taking surveys of others!

Using Free Version of SurveyMonkey?

When you use a free SurveyMonkey profile there are two things you can do.

The first option is to rewrite your survey with Google Forms.

Another option (less recommended) is to add an extra question to your survey and paste the SurveySwap unique survey code here. However, you have to make sure people first COPY your unique SurveySwap link, then click on the ‘submit’ button of your survey, and the last step is pasting your SurveySwap code in another internet browser tab.

An example message:


(1) First copy the surveyswap code , (2) and paste it in another browser tab, (3) BEFORE you click on submit on this tab.

Paste here your unique survey code.

Thank you


If people only click on the unique survey code, you will not receive any respondents, because they will not click on the ‘submit’ button on your survey.
