globaltestmarket is good survey site but most of the time you get screened out.
I've seen a lot of wildly mixed reviews of this one, but I decided to try it. I've been with them a few months now, so I feel qualified to comment that they are... acceptable. They're not at the top of my list, but they are in the list, still - when I'm in a survey-taking mood, they're one of the places I check, though I don't go out of my way to take every survey they send me (one good thing: they send you a *lot* of surveys; I qualify for a minority of them, but a *reasonable* minority of them.) They're significantly less *buggy* than their sister site MySurvey, but like MySurvey, if you do ever encounter any issue (it happens), it's a coin flip whether they'll ever actually respond to your request for help, and a losing bet that they'll respond quickly enough for it to actually do you any good.
Pay is neither amazing nor abysmal - the average pay for a normal-length survey is 22 "points", which is a little under a dollar, slightly higher if you want Amazon cash instead of actual cash cash, and they send you a *ton* of surveys, which is good. And unlike most sites I've tried that send you a ton of surveys, while you will obviously not qualify for all of them, I find I qualify for a decent number, and the ones I haven't, I've been disqualified pretty much immediately (often before even filling anything out, which does make me question why they bothered emailing me them, but whatever). Survey contents are pretty much your average surveys, nothing wildly new or different, though they are at least not stingy with the product tests: I have so far gotten two, both from GTM (meanwhile, pinecone has *asked* if I'd be interested in product tests loads of times, but has not yet ever actually followed up on that.)
The one major downside is that, while they don't make it remotely clear going in, the min payout is actually 50 bucks - there are lower redemption options, but you can't actually *use* them until you put 1000 points worth of things into your redemption cart, and the limited available options means if you want to be paid through paypal, you actually need 1200 points to redeem. So that's pretty dumb. I have now verified, however, that once you get enough points, they *will* actually pay you. Kinda slowly (took a bit over a week), but they will. So I have no reason to ditch them, terrible help desk or not, as I can count on them to reliably pay: I have, as of now, gotten 4 50$ payouts, and am more than halfway to a fifth, in about 5 months (during which time I was super-active some of the time, but not all of it.)
it a good site. cashed out 3 times from them. minimal cash out is 1000 points
I agree with a lot of the other reviews of getting screened out well into a survey but that isn't my biggest beef. When you screen out and it says there is another survey, for 6 points, and you take it and it says congratulations, you earned 6 points, the it asks if you'd like to take another survey, also for 6 points. You complete that one too and it says you earned 6 points. But then the points NEVER show up in your account. I took two surveys on November 20 and it still doesn't show up. If you send them a message and tell them of the issue, they NEVER EVER respond and nothing is ever resolved. So don't bother signing up with this survey company.
This Panel is a total waste of time. They have reduce their points and increase their cash-out threshold hence making it difficult for you to cash out. A quite amount of their surveys during and upon completion u will told that you have screened out. Their help-desk is the worst i have come across. 9 out of 10 times they will not reply to your inquiry or emails and if they do it might take you up to 2 months for them to respond and don't normally solve your issue.
I have manage to cash out a few times but i have notice that whenever i'm getting close to cashing out they begin to send you 1 or 2 survey ( Now and then) until you're able to cash out then instantly u will see lots of survey coming in. At present i'm stuck at 1010 points and need 190 points to redeem $50 but since i reach the 1000 point mark these people haven't send me a single survey for the past 3 weeks. If and when i'm able to cash out i'm done with them.
