Interesting what Lee said about being unable to access his account after reaching the payout threshold. I am now on £9.65 and have not received a single survey invitation for weeks - coincidence?
Not a bad company but I got fed up getting a Do Not Qualify. About three out of four surveys ended with a DNQ and I often had entered quite a bit of info by that point.
I have had many more surveys from these guys. They pay BACS within 10 working days. In the last 2 months I have had £30 into my account. Once you get the ball rolling, they get better it looks!
Given that this was rated #1 (above Pinecone Research) I really expected it to be something. It is as simple as this (not over-exaggerating etc etc)
I signed up 28/12/12. To date (29/1/13) I have had 3 survey invites (one was full even though I clicked on the link straight away), another was for prize draw entries and the last was for 50p. Thus my grand total accrued in the first month is £3.50 (includes £3 signup 'bonus'.
This is exceptionally disappointing given that Global Test Market destroys my inbox a minimum of 5 times a day, with Valued Opinions contributing usually 2 or 3. One Poll has around 7 mini survey per day. Why would I want to stay with this panel?
I am not going to rare it fully now, I shall wait a few more weeks to see if there's any improvement. If not, I may just sit it out til £10 and leave.
I shall re-write this review in a few weeks times..either approving or disapproving of this panel!
As it takes so long to reach the £10 minimum payout I wasn't happy that as soon as I did, I couldn't access the site to cash it out. I tried everything but just couldn't load their webpage at panelbase.net from my home. After a few days of this, I then decided to use a proxy server and lo and behold I was able to access the site and my account. If they're going to restrict access to users, then they could at least do a better job. Once I finally have that cash I'll be off. Funny thing is they only live down the road from me in Northumberland as well, so if that doesn't happen I'll be paying them a visit.
It pays quite well with some surveys paying up to £10 problem is there isn't a lot of surveys you'd be lucky to get 1 every 2 months
