This company is very slow in responding and resolving issues.
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?
It's now almost a month since I was sent an email saying that the payment was being sent to the accounting department. NOTHING!
DO NOT SIGN UP WITH AMERICAN CONSUMER OPINION!
WILL MOST LIKELY HAVE TO WRITE THIS OFF!
OBVIOUSLY THEY'RE BROKE!
I thought this survey panel was good because I kept getting survey I qualified for, but I Cashed Out in September and still haven't gotten paid. Just like others who have reviewed this panel you get the usual excuse emails like problems in accounting and they have now fixed that and will send a cheque which never comes.
They have started sending me surveys again though, probably because I haven't asked for my payment again yet. After 3 emails I'm starting to wonder if they ever will send that elusive cheque. Be wary sure they send surveys, but you might never get the money.
ACOP might be OK if you are in the US but for me in Australia they have been terrible. For the first year or two they send nothing at all. Then at the end of 2013 they started sending a couple of invites a week. Great! Except they are the same SSI surveys I get elsewhere and they don't pay for anything except screen outs - the rest is not available for cash out. Contacting the help desk about it is a waste of time - four out of five they ignore you and the fifth is a cut-and-paste boilerplate explaining something completely irrelevant.
Update December 2014: they lie about payment for surveys. Four surveys today and none paid more than a third of what was promised.
I requested a payment over 8 weeks ago and still haven't been paid. Their email said I should be paid in 4-6 weeks. I sent two emails and both haven't been responded to. I stuck with this panel because the points add up really quickly, but what is the point if I never get paid? I can't wait to receive my payments so I can leave this panel.
They paid me immediately after I emailed them again but it took forever.
