Types of Surveys Offered
Global Test Market offers online surveys that help companies develop new products and services. For every successful survey completed, members are awarded points. Survey lengths vary, but are typically between 10 - 20 minutes. 5 points = approximately $0.05.
Registering is easy, simple and free. Click the registration link where you will be asked simple questions about you and your household. The results are used to determine which surveys you are a good fit for.
Each survey that you complete with Global Test Market rewards you with 'LifePoints'. On April 17, 2017, MarketPoints were discontinued and replaced by these new 'LifePoints' at a 1 for 5 conversion rate. Collected points can be redeemed for many different reward options, which may vary, depending on your country of residence. Rewards can be collected once you have accumulated 4,000 LifePoints (equal to $35) in your account.
Option to Give Back
In addition to the great selection of rewards, Global Test Market gives you the option to give back to your community! Unicef charity donations can be redeemed with collected LifePoints.
Reward Processing Time
Rewards usually take about 4-6 weeks to arrive if you are in the United States and 6-8 weeks for international panel members.
Eligibility: Residents worldwide, age 14+
The pay is very low. Can hardly ever finish a survey. Many times I finish but they are not counted. I have made a few bucks but not enough to cash out. I will drop them today. If a site pays you to come check it out its usually not worth your time. Stay away they just do not care period.
First off people that have heard of GTM, (Global Test Market) in the survey community knows that this one has been around for a while and with great reason. They are fairly good, about their rotation of surveys that are being sent out.
Lately there have been a few changes, so here is a comparison from the past up until today's setup through my eyes.
This is a part of what it looked like in the beginning
each point = roughly 4.5 cents per point
screened out (dq)= 5 points for trying , (Unlimited)
pass survey= certain amount of points
cashout = (1000) points =$50.00 usd by check.
each point = roughly 4 cents per points
screened out= sweep entries only and nothing towards cashout.
survey complete= stays the same from earlier
cashout = still $50.00 ( now approx. 1,200 points to cashout).
Today = Lifepoints
1 market point equals 5 life points
5 points = 4cents approx.
cashout at 4000 points (technically 35.00 usd)
4100 points approximately $15 amazon card and $20 paypal cash.
$50 cashout increased to a staggering 6000 lifepoints, which is still the same as 1200 marketpoints. 6000/5=
So as this review has come to an end, it is my hope that with the knowledge I have provided you; that you can realise while they do work; it can take a long time, to hit payouts on most of the legit ones.
Time for a new review on Global test market they've been doing some ironing out of there problems, just like anything new people doesn't take change well and there's going to be problems to start off with everyone knows this but they've fixed all the problems i ever seen and now there every bit as good as they were before.
sends quite a lot of surveys. clear details on what you will be paid.
The conversion from "marketpoints" to "lifepoints" really devalued the payouts. Surveys are worth about 30% less now. I wonder if they figured their customers couldn't do math?
