If you participate in a focus group, you are likely to be paid by check.

Survey invitations and app

Get more survey invitations by completing the "Profile Surveys" on your account. They can be found in the “New Surveys” area located on the website. Also, be sure to act quickly when responding to survey requests, as once they are filled they may be closed. A great way to do this is to download the Consumer Village mobile application named i°C. This allows users to respond quickly to survey invites or other offers.

I've been trying to cash out for a week.
The cash out function does not respond and I have sent 2 inquiries and have not received any response.
Does anyone know how to contact them or Gongos directly?
OK STILL no redemption code and NO response.
I was contacted by Gongos and invited to participate in a 2 day panel that starts next week, but, instead of being excited, I'm wondering if I'll even be compensated since I'm having such difficulty with Consumer Village? SMH So one of the moderators Theresa reached out to me and it took 3 days of back and forth e-mails but she did not give up until she found the problem and fixed it. She was very kind and did not give up. I truly felt like a valued member and wish all site were this member focused. 5 STARS! Thanks Theresa

You can be on more then one panel

After being on this panel for awhile I was asked to join more communities.I like that they have what I call a bank so you can always see how much you are owed and when they will deliver it to your account.Plus they tell you up front if you qualify or not so you don't waste a lot of time trying to qualify for a survey.

I love Gongos!

One of the best. They are always above board. Well worth your time.

Consumer Village is the place to be if you enjoy surveys.
I have found that they are an honest online survey group. I enjoy being here and communicating. I have made a lot of friends here

I have been a member for a few years, and I like the short surveys compared to other sites. They are further apart, but have a much improved acceptance rate, and an easier cash out threshold. They have a couple sister sites that according to your stats, you may get an invitation for. They pay with amazon codes, which usually arrive before you can check your inbox.
