I have now waited 63 days for my paypal payment. I have sent emails weekly and i receive nothing but excuses on why they cant pay me
I do not recommend this survey company
Its not right to hold someones money more than 2 weeks...there needs to be laws enforced with online companies as well on paying people that help these companies and we get treated like this
ONE OF THE BETTER PANELS,UNFORTUNATELY THEY DO NOT SEND A LOT OF SURVEYS,THE ONES THEY SEND YOU KNOW ARE REAL,CASH OUT SIMPLE AND EASY, GOOD SITE.LATELY HAVE BEEN TAKING OVER 60 DAYS TO CASH OUT
I've been waiting, and waiting and waiting since August of 2014 for my payment. Nothing, Nada, Zip, Zilch..... Numerous emails both by emailing and through the contact information on their site and not even a response back.
Is it time to write you off? Why are you still sending out surveys?
This is twice this year that i requested payment and it has taken over 12 weeks via paypal to recieve the payments. Each time i have had to call them for them to expedite the payment. I would not recommend this site due to the slow payment process.
Bottom line: Pretty good survey screening, a reasonable amount of survey invitations via email (not just a blind flood) and acceptable completion rates however they PAY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY SLOW!!!!
On the "how fast does it take?" scale this site is so far over to the SLOW side that they are barely visible on the scale at all! Can we say Glacial?
My *first* payment (by check) was supposed to take 4-6 weeks. There are a couple of other sites that also have a 4-6 week processing time but they generally beat that time estimate.
ACOP took TWELVE WEEKS! to pay me. When I asked them what was the problem, they said they were having problems in their "accounting dept".
Well their accounting dept must have gotten worse because they have INCREASED their processing time. It is now 6-8 weeks! For either PayPal or by check.
It took me almost a week, and multiple email requests, to get them to set up their system so that I could submit my request to be paid via PayPal. My eyes bugged out of my head when I saw the time estimate on the payment. I was expecting payment via PayPal to be faster--on the order of 36-48 hours -- NOT 36-56 DAYS and not the same speed as a paper check.
So I emailed them and politely asked them "why" Here is their boiler plate "answer" which really doesn't answer anything:
"Our Accounting department is now processing payments manually so that they can verify the authenticity of each payment and panel member they send. We are now validating each panel member’s PayPal or Mailing Address information before sending payment. This has caused a delay in processing payments. Our policy has recently changed to a 6-8 week time frame before you will receive your payment."
UPDATE ON 10/30. My current payment request, which I submitted on 8/27 is now late. Their stated processing time is 6-8 weeks, it is now, as I type this 9 weeks and counting.
I emailed them on 10/22 as soon as it was late. I got the email reply today, EIGHT days later. Here is their reply:
"Thank you for your email. We will request that your payment be sent from our Accounting Department. We will send you an email once it has been sent.
American Consumer Opinion®"
SHEESH! How was that for a non-answer answer? They need to fire their accounting department. I have another payment request which I submitted on 10/18/2014. I fully expect that payment to be late as well.
I stopped taking their surveys as soon as I crossed my last cashout threshold on 10/18 so I have no more surveys in the pipe. As soon as I get paid these two payments which they owe me, I am cancelling my account with them.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY.
