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. 1 point = 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 'Marketpoints'. Collected Marketpoints can be redeemed for many different reward options, note that selection of rewards varies depending on your country of residence. Rewards can be collected once you have accumulated 1,000 Marketpoints or $50 within 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 Marketpoints.
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 biggest problem I have with this site is the cash out system. It says under rewards that for 240 points you can get $10 in paypal. So I did that, got my points, then go to cash out. I'm then told "You don't have enough items in your cart"
So you actually have to spend 1000 points to be able to check out. I find this very misleading. The way they present it, I felt that I would be able to cash out for $10 or 240 points and I feel like anyone else who sees this would agree with me.
So even if you do decide to stick with it after getting 1000 points it can take 4-6 weeks to get your payment. I'm also going to go ahead and assume they get paid by their third parties for the surveys you complete regardless of whether you cash out or not.
Constantly getting "screened out" after COMPLETING surveys. Who's kidding who here ? We all know how this works. Posters get FREE work , You get nothing UPDATE: Lost 90 points ( $5.00 ) in 2 days on 2 surveys I submitted, saying survey was closed. How can they be closed if they were offered, accepted, completed and submitted ?
I am a member of at least 5 survey companies and have never had any of the troubles I get with this crew. I have spent considerable amounts of time filling in personal information in surveys with GlobalTestMarket only to be screened out after 10 or so minutes. The most recent was a survey I spent well over an hour on and finished, only to be told that the survey had ended. Each time I contact customer services about a problem I receive a reply that they have received my query, however I never hear back from them. I believe that they are a waste of time and would not recommend them to any one at all. They give far less points than most other survey companies and always waste your time. I have since completed more surveys that have taken longer than they stated only to get to the end of it to be told that the survey is unavailable. I believe that this company thrives and gets rich from the unpaid surveys to customers. Disgraceful behavior Globaltestspatience
Like the reviewer below, I received an email today from Global stating that I redeemed my points and when I would receive my reward, but the problem is...I didn't redeem any points. I immediately changed my password, and sent an email to them. They responded within 4 hours and my points were returned to my account.
You get a lot of profile related surveys, however actual paid surveys are less frequent and acquiring market points to cash out is difficult.
