I can tell you why they will not pay you in a timely fashion, the company (Decision Analyst) is on the verge of bankruptcy and simply does not have the money to pay panel members.

Avoid this panel, you will only get paid if you you make a huge fuss. They are hoping you will give up and go away.

"Make you wait up to 2 months for payment! "
Thursday, February 26, 2015 by Ken

I've been a member for over 5 years. Here is my most recent correspondence regarding slow payments:

I have a cash out that was approved for $18.25 on Jan. 8, 2015 via PayPal that I'm waiting for. Could you please check as to why my payment has been delayed.
Thank you so much for your help with this matter,

Here is their response, (a canned reason no doubt):

Dear Ken,
Our accounting department is now trying to process payments manually so they can verify the authenticity of each member of the panel and payment they send.
We are now in the process of validating PayPal each member of the group or mailing address information before sending payment. This resulted in a delay in the processing of payments.
Our policy has recently changed for a period of
1 1/2 - 2 MONTHS to receive your payment.
Anne Parks
Vice President

To which I responded:

Why do you have to, "verify, (a member of five years), authenticity" on every cash out?
If all surveys are approved before I submitted them for a cash out, what possible reason would it take anyone another two MONTHS to verify the surveys again & send my payment? - :o
Don't you have computers that are programed for that? Some survey sites send payments to me within minutes and some within two DAYS. TWO MONTHS to get paid is excessive.
The only reason for this long delay that comes to my mind, is to collect the 2 months interest on your members earned money. - :x

* In this day and age of the ultra fast processing of information, waiting two months to be paid is very unfair to their loyal members . . .

"So far good."

I finally got enough points to cash out for a 26.00 check. I was happy with that. It took quite a long time to get to me. but it did come. So i changed my thoughts on this company. It does take time. But for me it's just fine.

"bad at paying out"
Tuesday, February 10, 2015 by darrell

takes at least 5 months to be compensated for your surveys,not very good business

"used to be great"

Besides univox, they are the worst site out there. They used to be awesome. Now it takes at LEAST 3 months for a survey to go from pending to paid. On average it takes 3-4 months to get your check or Paypal. You have to email over and over to get points credited. You rarely ever qualify for a survey. This site is a complete waste of time. I cashed out for the last time and once I get paid, I a closing my account.
