New Survey Qualification Redesign is Horrendous!!!

May 6, 2019 by Alex from United States

I’ve been with this company for close to 4 years and never had a problem finding a survey to fill.
It would take me each day max 2 hours to find three Partners surveys for $3 each to fill out.
The pre-qualification process was automated and I really enjoyed doing it.

With the most recent Partners survey pre-qualification site redesign, it now takes me about 4-5 hours to make 4-5 dollars.

The survey pre-qualification process is no longer automated and you now have to literally manually go through hundreds and hundreds of surveys (that range from 50 cents to 4 dollars) to find something, that you might miraculously qualify for.

And even after you complete the survey, 20% of the time, it redirects you to nowhere and you don’t get paid.

I’ve been a loyal member for 4 years, but I can say for a fact, that this site now is the biggest waste of time.

Whoever made the decision about redesigning how members qualify for surveys, have officially killed off their most loyal user base.

they havent been paying for 2 weeks now its been one excuse after another and they continue to lie saying its a paypal problem they could make the payments manually if they had to and they avoid doing this also people have tried cashing out amazon and bit coin and didnt get payments either there not being responsible and advice people to not take surveys till they get everyone paid on completions they're going down as a reputable company real fast.

Started receiving daily SPAM after signing up

January 22, 2019 by Maria from Canada

After reading positive reviews for this website, I signed up. I verified my cellphone # so I could do mobile surveys. Then I started receiving spam every day from various US companies in similar format. I live in Canada, I've discovered this website is for US only, so I won't get any surveys. doesn't allow you to cancel / delete your account, so I changed my info to fake email and phone #. I still get daily SPAM due to this website

Breaking my Spirit

December 5, 2018 by Reginald from United States

I joined this panel because it sends your reward right away. At first, I was qualifying for $2, $3, and $1 surveys. Even getting $2 loyalty bonuses for doing their partner sites, which Forthright says will credit you for getting disqualified. After getting the first bonus I can not get past the 2 stars to get the 3rd star for a bonus, and I get disqualified all of the time now. The thing is. I qualify for the same surveys on other panels that Forthright disqualifies me from. I have completed surveys and was not rewarded and the losses have accumulated to over $20. That may not seem like a lot, but the average survey takes over 30 mins to complete. So do the math 30x20 and that was all my valuable time wasted for nothing, and customer support does not exist. I will probably still try to do a survey on this site every now and then to see if Forthright improves, but for now, the site is not being Forthright to its Loyal Members.

After posting this first review BeForthRight has improved tremendously. They have addressed some of my reward issues, but that is better than nothing. I now give them 3.5 stars. BeforthRight is getting better with Customer Service, who actually respond now, and resolves the issues that are within their control. I would recommend this Panel as a Top Ten Site. I am now doing a revision on this Date. Ok, update. Be forthright has fallen back into its habit of not reimbursing you if their partners don't pay and again my losses are accumulating. A very bad Panel

05/03/2018. Lately, I have been experiencing Re-Direct problems from their Partner sites, so I started taking screenshots after completion of surveys. In the past Month, it has totaled something like $20. I send my proof to some Robot called Max, and they will not pay me my hard earned Money!! I will now place BeForthRight at the bottom of the Trusted Panels. They are not being ForthRight with its Members, and they are getting rich off of my Time spent taking their surveys and hoping once I get to the end. Maybe I will get paid or maybe not. The thing that makes me really upset is, I am doing in-home testing for them right now and have been for the last 3 Months!! Terrible Site and I would tell everyone about them if I were you. We as Panel Members need to collaborate and stop Panels such as BeForthRight from practicing unethical Conduct on a consistent basis. Survey Police may not approve this Review. I will not be surprised.

don't WASTE your time

September 22, 2018 by james from United States

Since signing up I've only been offered one Forthright survey. They also offer "partner surveys", you're allowed to complete 3 per day for either $1, $2, or $3 each. If you're looking to work for over an hour for $3 per day this is the site for you. They won't pay you for all 3 surveys, they will pay you for one if you're lucky. You'll spend time completing entire surveys only to be redirected to another survey in hopes of possibly being able to claim your earned money after completing that one. That cycle will happen until you do about 5 surveys and you will be kicked out of doing anymore until the next day. Sadly you shouldn't bother trying to contact support as they most likely won't respond or will just give you the same "copy/paste" response they give everyone else. YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE PAID FOR EVERY SURVEY, WE AREN'T TAKING THESE FOR FUN.
