This is a fraudulent site that deleted my account after I exchanged my 8880 points for a paypal sum of $80. I never got it but this site has collected much of my private information. No reason was given for my account deletion. Per their ToS I am allowed to exchanged points even after the account is deleted. This is a garbage fraudulent site, don't waste your time and be subject to ID theft.
This site is schzoid. It was bad for while, got better, now it seems to be backsliding again. I've been taking surveys with this vendor since Oct 2011, over 3 yrs now. They seem like they have a lot of tech issues, for a while my security software wouldnt even let me enter the site because it seemed too dangerous. That was resolved, but now, they are down fairly often and they seem to lose my completed surveys and dont award the points I should get. They also are getting slower and slower to pay out. At first they were fairly quick, within a week I'd see my payout hit my PayPal account. Now, I'm waiting 8 days and counting, since I submitted for payout Oct 15th, the last payout I got. August 28, 2014, I waited over 2 weeks for. That's not as bad as some places, but they are very inconsistent. Methinks that Ipsos has cash flow problems or a very stingy controller. Plus, I'm tired of working on a survey for five minutes or more only to get "we still havent found a survey for you that's a good fit, would you like to continue?" Hell no!! I'm going to drop them because they seem to be deteriorating and are just taking advantage of the subjects who use them to take surveys. I think they are getting a lot of free data they are selling without compensating the subjects who are supplying the data, They are very suspect in how they conduct their surveys and am doubtful anyone wins their "Poll Predictor" contests. Anyone out there actually win anything from Ipsos? About the only good thing I can say is that if they award points for completing a survey, they do do it immediately and when you accumulate points you can cash them out right away.
This used to be a relatively good site. Over the last year, I have had numerous occasions where I haven't received my vouchers. Each time, I have had to chase them up, and even then, there's been a time delay and more screw-ups.
One particular time, I hadn't received my voucher, had chased up and "cashed-out" another. The replacement voucher arrived, but then I had to chase up the "new one".
I've had continuous problems, so decided to wait until I had £20 before cashing-out...once again, after 4 weeks I still haven't received them, so I contacted Ipsos to find out what's been happening. This is their response:
"Unfortunately, we are not able to register another replacement order for you, since it appears that 2 replacement orders have already been registered for your account this year.Thank you for your understanding."
Well I do not understand. I can't understand why one site would suddenly have such appalling responsibility or accountability. I've suggested that they check and cancel the previous that they have apparently sent, or perhaps try to send recorded delivery.
My advice; empty your account and leave, as I'm pretty sure no-one is working for free here!
The customer service is good, I usually qualify for all of the surveys and they have a nice quality to them. The only problem is the surveys can be very long and griddy with huge grids to fill out but I put up with those surveys because i like everything else about them.
I'd have to say Ipsos is the one site I get the most survey offers from per week, and most the time I actually qualify and complete them. Problem is, the incentives are low based on what it 'costs' to redeem a reward, so takes a while to get say a $20 Paypal check and then it takes the site at least a month to get the reward sent to you, something I find odd since other sites Paypal is done instantly. Also find the site to be a bit overly cutesy, do we REALLY need to name the mascot, especially since there is no way in heck I'm signing up on Facebook just to do so? Do we REALLY need the grinning faces of I-say or the just for fun surveys not worth anything?
