Ipsos Background Information
The Ipsos i-Say online survey panel is operated by Ipsos Insight, a division of Ipsos. Ipsos is one of the world's largest online marketing research companies which conducts over 6 million surveys annually in over 100 countries..
Note: The European version of this panel, Ipsos Access Panels, has merged with Ipsos i-Say. They are now one.
I was a panelist of Synovate which I liked but they sold out to this Ipsos-isay site. The first few surveys I took, after 90 minutes of a long survey, the survey would get an error and I would not get credit. You contact customer care and they take a week or more to respond and just play email tag. I finally earned a $10 Amazon gift card. I just went to apply it and it says the code is invalid. I have been using Amazon since that site was founded and have never once in my life had an invalid code. Amazon customer service told me they have gotten thousands of complaints about this company sending out invalid codes. I just finished filing a complaint with the BBB since I saw on SurveyPolice that this is common practice of Ipsos. I am also in the process of filing a fraud complaint with the State of New York Internet fraud division since that is where the company is stationed. Do not waste your time.
I-Say is another favorite I like to work with. Always received my payments, whether it cash or gift cards. Even their customer service is helpful, one time I was apparently "banned" from doing surveys because they felt my answers weren't good enough but I emailed them about it and they explained the situation and were nice enough to give me my account back without any problems. Since then, I've been using this site and getting paid everytime. Love it! :)
This one is... acceptable. It's not my favorite, but they do send a decent number of surveys (though it goes through spurts), I do qualify for a decent number of the ones they send, most of those I don't qualify for, I'm disqualified pretty quickly, and the surveys themselves are rarely buggy (so once I qualify for a survey, I can usually complete it successfully). In about three months, I've only ever had to contact their support about an in-progress survey once (granted, that one time, they said they'd look into it, then I never heard back from them and was never able to finish the survey, but still that's pretty good compared to a lot of sites.)
Payout is generally a little on the low end, but rarely insultingly so, and when you request a payout, they send it reliably in about a week, which isn't the best, but isn't the worst, either. Overall, I've made about 70 bucks in about 3 months so far from this one. So pretty much average all around.
That said, I say their *surveys* are rarely buggy, which is true, but the site *itself* is buggy as heck, and has been pretty much consistently. The surveys they send you by email may or may not be ones you're actually invited to / ones that didn't already close days earlier, and once you're logged into the site, you will see a list of surveys ready for you to access, that again, may well contain surveys that were already closed days earlier (but may also contain surveys that are open, and which you were never emailed about, so you just have to open them all to check.) So that part is... less than impressive.
It took me months so get 5000 points. I redeemed for $50 in amazon gift cards and they are all invalid. Waiting to hear back from ipsos, but I wont hold my breath.
In the last 4 years i had 40$ every 4 months, i did surveys almost everyday.I could give a rating of 4.5/5.
Now it's mixed. I can do a lot of surveys and earn a good amount of money for 4-6 months,and sometimes it's a lot less.One more thing,few times a month(2-3) i do 100% of the survey but i got nothing!! I HATE THAT!!
