"Valid survey site,but with reservations"

They offer decent surveys which you qualify for 50% of the time. Main problem is you don't get many surveys,maybe 1-2 per week max.
They do however pay by bacs transfer

"Near threshold - no more surveys"
Saturday, April 19, 2014 by Timothy

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?

"Too many DNQs"
Tuesday, April 15, 2014 by John

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.

"Why all the hype?"
Saturday, January 04, 2014 by Chris


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!

"Bunch of good for nothings"
Wednesday, November 20, 2013 by Lee

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.
