Paid right after taking...

August 14, 2022 by Derrick from United States

Cool thing about these folks is they pay you when you finish (qualified). Via paypal, Amazon, etc., For every three surveys that you take (qualify or not) you get a performance bonus (I forget the exact wording but its a bonus).
Surveys don't come often, maybe twice a week. Easy sign up.

I have been using this for years and they recently partnered with another firm for Partner Surveys "InBrain", The partner was good at the beginning of my use of it then server/website problems/crashing all the time. Now the last fifteen surveys have ALL resulted in 'oops looks like something went wrong' messages at the, literally, last stage when pressing the 'submit' button. Seems kind of engineered but I hope I am wrong because i like how the site works.

UPDATE 8-13-22
The InBrain partner is good because they pay but the longer surveys ALWAYS end with 'OOPS SOMETHING WENT WRONG'. The first few times i could see it might be a configuration error but literally EVERY long survey ends this way? Apparently this is an engineered thing so as not to pay out but the creator (not Beforthright) still gets paid. You would think that after so many months this issue would have been taken care of because I know i am not the only one to have noticed it. BEFORTHRIGHT is a great place to survey with but they need to speak to their partners because they are giving them a bad rep.

Great survey site with no minimum payout

August 16, 2021 by Amber from United States

I came across Forthright a few months ago and absolutely love it. I love the no minimum payout and the short generous paying surveys they offer.

I requested payment on June 1, 21 and received payment the same day.

Forthright Surveys are Good!

May 18, 2020 by Morgan from United States

Don't bother with the partner surveys — you rarely qualify and they don't pay well — but Forthright surveys are very good! You won't get many opportunities, but when you do get an invite, the survey will be nicely designed, and the pay will be above average.

Great Experience

May 3, 2020 by Mike from United States

Forthright is a wonderful experience. They conduct their own surveys and also have partner surveys where usually a survey router is involved. I only do the surveys which they send you an invitation by email and usually range from $1 to $3. Every survey you complete, you get a reward point and if you collect all three you get an automatic $2 bonus into your wallet which you can cash-out right away. They have PayPal and Gift Cards which arrive instantly. Not many surveys, but you may get one or two a month usually. This is how all survey sites should be, with fair rewards, none of Nickel and Diming and a nice interface. This site gets 5 stars.
