No problems

March 15, 2017 by Leisa from United States

I haven't had any problems. The 1st survey they sent my check about a week later. NOW, though, you accumulate points and you must send an email requesting a check. I did that last Thurs or Friday. I'll hopefully remember to come back and post when I receive it! Just make sure you got an email to them requesting the check. They weren't transparent about that change at inception but they were upfront when questioned.

UPDATE: verY happy to report that I just checked my email today (3/14) and they have processed my payment and asked me to allow up to 8 days to receive via mail. VERY Happy with this group. They don't do a lot but they do pay well and quickly. Love Directive Analytics. So far, so great!

They paid me for my diary.

I did a diary for $125 with them and they paid me in 14 days or so through my panel, in the time stated (10-14 days). So I have no problem with them and they seem honorable.

I hope the rest of you who did not get payment can get it sorted out properly. Try to contact Directive Analytics again, and explain the panel hasn't paid you. Ultimately, its D.A's responsibility to pay no matter which panel processes it.

I mean, your only other option would be small claims court if you truly feel your in the right and haven't been paid properly.

Best of luck, but they paid me promptly and it was a very enjoyable diary.

Great panel

I have always had a good experience with this panel. I just wish they sent out more surveys.

They're great

I wish these guys could be cloned. Their site isn't that flashy, but it gets the job done. There are plenty of survey oppotunities (1 survey/ wk @ 200 points/survey is usual.) You can request a check for ANY amount and it usually arrives no more than 7-10 days after you request it. Every time I've had a question, I got a real emailed answer from a real human, imagine that. I'd definitely recommend them.

Not many surveys, but pay well.

April 4, 2014 by Sharon from United States

I haven't had many invites but the few that I have were for $1-$4 each and I also did a 2-day bulletin board that paid $25, so they're legit and pay decently. I also just wish they had more surveys! :-)
