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

VERY disappointed in fee change

July 2, 2020 by Jim from United States

It took awhile, but after researching most of the major social sites for Forthright, I realized that was probably the best site where my viewpoint and review of an aspect of the company's fee structure could be reviewed.

I was quite disappointed to find out that when I went to make a minor claim for my babies that I had learned on, set a 25 cent charge would be assessed for any claim of less than $10.

You have to be kidding. It is difficult enough to get at least a few dollars accumulated via forthright's Partners surveys, and trying to amass total of $10 might take months at best. I suspect what the company is attempting to do you seeing how many survey takers will take takers will take just a few surveys before they give up, in the company doesn't have to worry about actually paying out an entire $10 fee, and can get several surveys from one survey taker for free. It's a very unethical thing to do.

I will be interested to see if the company responds to, because I am curious to see how they can justify such a blatantly greedy action in order to try to make money I'll survey takers more than they already have.

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.

Site has gone downhill

May 6, 2020 by Dawn from United States

EDIT 5/5/2020: I noticed that there is some Opinionsite company that seems to be piggybacking off Forthright, or affiliated with them now. I went through almost two hours and got absolutely no surveys. Nothing. When the Opinionsite thing pops up, it usually tells me I’m disqualified before I even answer any survey questions! Outrageous. I just don’t have the time to waste on this panel if they are going to continue to operate this way. And I got all the way to the end of two of the Opinionsite ones to be told at the very end I didn’t fit the demographics! Absolutely unacceptable! So I got screwed out of about $2.00 with those two. Forthright needs to get their act together NOW! I will dump them if this happens tomorrow.

I like the fact that after completing or DQ'ing from three of their surveys, I get a $2 bonus. I do a lot of their partner surveys too. Patience is essential. I do these every day 3-4 hours and make $3-$4 a day. Today I made that, plus scored a $3 survey, and got the $2 bonus. Made almost $9.

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.
