If I could give them a negative review I would. I took a survey over a 2 week term and was promised a reward after taking a final survey. Now I get an email with the $20 final survey only if I'm qualified. I was qualified when I took the 2 week survey which was I guess a waste of time.

Support does not exist and no surveys

October 16, 2017 by Joey from United States

I joined Forthright about a week ago and sent a question to support about how the site works since I have not received a single survey invite and the partner surveys keep saying "Temporary Unavailable" they refuse to answer simple questions and get back to their members. Very unprofessional company at least work with your panelists to answer their questions instead of leaving them in the dark. The owner of this panel looks to be nonexistent, I do not recommend this panel, no surveys after a week and no support to help you out.

Great panel

I really enjoy this panel, you earn loyalty points even if you don't qualify for the survey. They also offer partner surveys.

never get paid

August 3, 2017 by Rita from United States

This site was pretty good when I first started using it, but I was completing surveys, after awhile, and never getting my incentive, and, then, they started with the 3rd party surveys, and I would attempt 5 or 6 at a time with no luck. I finally managed to get my 3rd star for my $2 loyalty credit, which I took in Paypal credit, but, that was nearly a week ago, and I still haven't gotten paid. I have messaged about it, but have received no answer. This new company doesn't seem to be any better. Anyone else?

Wishing for days gone by.

Survey sites have been undergoing changes lately. Most have NOT been for the better and Innopoll is NO exception to that. 3 months ago, I would have left a 5 star review. Now, I'm just glad I didn't waste my time doing THAT. I can tell you that 3 months ago there were instant payouts and sometimes, loyalty credits whether or not you qualified. Payouts are still instant but good luck getting one. Now, it seems they are just a last resort for companies collecting data or something. The best example I can give you is today's. I got an invite. Previously, I was guaranteed to at least finish the survey. Now, like today, you will go through 20-30 minutes and get cancelled with NO reward and very likely, almost certainly NO loyalty credit. I kept a tick count today. I answered what state I was from 13 TIMES before being told I didn't qualify. Just an endless loop of qualifying questions. Just when you think you're in- you're ACTUALLY participating in the survey this time-it will buffer and ask you for your age again. Good luck NOT pulling your hair out. I don't know what happened to this formerly AWESOME site but then, I don't know what happened to all the good ones.
