I'm a member of a few panels, and OpinionWorld was one of my preferred panels as I always received surveys and could build up my points with relative ease. Immediate payout was fantastic!!
However, today, I just went to collect via paypal my £10 earnings, entered my paypal details as normal, it started loading and automatically stopped and OpinionWorlds T&C's appeared. I therefore went to re-log in and now have a box at the top of the screen explaining that my account has been terminated due to breaching T&C's. Oh and my £10 paypal hasn't gone through either.
I've sent 2 separate emails; one through the website and one straight to the helpdesk as directed through the new 'termination box'. So now awaiting a response (I don't hold out much hope as I recently emailed regarding a survey which I was 80% through when they decided that I was no longer eligible, so was not compensated for - I like working 10-15 minutes of my time without compensation obviously! - and am still awaiting a response.)
I've been with this panel a few years now, and have never before had a problem. I am now extremely annoyed that they have terminated my account, when I went to withdraw my earnings, for as far as I can see, no reason as I can't understand what I've done to be in breach of their T&C's. If they reinstate my account (and the £10.50 I had in credit!!) I will change my current view on them, however I think I will be wary from now on!!
I gave them a half star overall for sending relatively frequent surveys. However, 1 pt = 1 penny. So 500 pts equals $5, which then you can get a $5 GC to Amazon. Well, I had a survey come up. It said 10 min for 50 pts and a prize entry. So I did it. Well, the survey was like 20 minutes, and then, when I got to the end of it, they wanted more info, without additional pay! Well I'd already done the work, and so I did an additional 10 min survey. That's 30 min for 50 cents folks... So, having a balance of 250 pts right now, if I do 5 more of those, I'll have enough to get $5 on Amazon. Right now, if one comes up for a bunch of pts, I'll do it just so I can get the $5 and close my account, because this site, more often than not, GROSSLY underestimates the amount of time surveys will take AND underpays on top of it. Other companies pay more so, I'm gonna to give them my opinion first. And after I get my lil $5 Amazon card, I am outta here!
Opinion world canceled my account for breach of their terms and conditions. I did not rush their surveys and nothing else that would cause this. Bad survey company will not recommend at all!!
I encountered a problem taking one of their surveys, so I e-mailed them about it, and they answered me quickly and resolved it for me promptly. (At the end of one of their surveys, the page had gone blank and I wasn't sure if I had been credited. They looked for me, and yes, everything had gone through ok.) I am very grateful for them getting back to me so soon. It was a nice surprise.
i read everyone of those bad reviews you guys are so wrong for instance to the person who says they dont know why they were terminate . i have one thing to say to you if that is the truth call them their number is a opinion outpost they will fix it which yes i have had to do .as for the person getting only prize entry even if the emails says prize entry only odds are you will get a paying survey when you click the link .i have been with them for over 3 years now and i cash out at least 10 dollars every day so yes i can say with full conviction that they are not a scam and you fool shouldn't be here lying about something you have no clue about cause most your post after reading them and being a member of opinion world can say were made just to be able to complain about something . quit scaring people away who just might really need that money .
