Actually, it wasn't that grand to begin. Like the very similar YouGov, they barely pay. Period.
Initially it was very straight forward. I would get two surveys a week, about, and I would get paid an average of $1 per week. OK, fine. And if I got invited, I was in. No "Sorry, we have enough respondents." That part was great.
This went on for three years and I finally had enough to pay out.
Even so, I stupidly thought it was my fault for not trying hard enough.
This time it did 'only take a year' to gain $50. However in the last two months it got even worse. Now I am nearly always booted out in the first steps. They re-invite you to try the next hidden survey, yet it's for a draw; not cash. And doing this, it took me TWO MONTHS to gain the last $1.50 to finally cash out. In fact, I am sure the closer I got to payout, the slower the surveys came.
2010 to 2013 they went from the very rare $2 payments to the more usual $1. Earlier this year they re-vamped their system, to a mere $0.50 --- IF you got it.
And now their slow-as-death payment systems are all warning of a 'high volume' 8-12+ week payment schedule.
That's it. I am cashed out. And I will not do another free survey for them.
I have been with them for over 2 years and am only at $33.10 , you have to earn $50.00 to cash out, I am hanging in there just until I can finally cash out, have way too much time invested to discard them now!
I received very few paid surveys and it takes forever to get to $50. They send you so called profile, mosaic etc. update surveys and very few paid ones.
So, I've just a while ago joined them. The surveys are usually interesting to me, so at least you don't get bored to death. I qualify more than I don't and the surveys are too long. They usually tell you ahead of time about how long it'll take, which is pretty much accurate. However, my main pet peeve is that you have to wait until $50 to cashout. I only have about $10 so far, so with most surveys being around .50 - $1.50, it may take quite a while to be able to test out their cashout process. All in all, not a bad panel, just a bit slow...
Been a member for a few years. They always payout and they do use paypal. Most surveys are not for a lot of money but they do credit your account upon completion rather then having to wait 3 months like some other sites mainly Ipoll.Only one problem, it takes 10 weeks to collect through paypal. Pretty much the same with checks
