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.

A legit survey company who's surveypolice panel ratings have steadily diminished in the last 2 years. Feel free to read the abundance of similar comments from other members.
Global Test Market was the first site I ever signed up for, they used to be awesome, had a great variety of panels, etc. But now, I will do an entire survey sometimes and not get compensation.
I have had A LOT of surveys I get screened out of, buy I have been paid through PayPal. I like that. Am very close to another pay out but finding that getting screened out is the theme. I have also done quite a few that screen out after answering all the questions. I complain, but to no avail. I just move on.
I like the steady amount of survey invitations from Global. I'm not so keen on the high screenout rate, the number of repetitive and boring surveys and the payment threshold of £30, which can take a long time to reach. Sticking with them for now as I have had a few payouts and they are generally reliable, but they were much better in the past.
This site is an utter waste of time. So often I start a survey and get screened out. Out of 42 surveys attempted I have been screened out of 29. If they paid any attention to your profile then they wouldn't offer unsuitable surveys.
With regards to pay rate, each point is worth about 2.7p. In terms of successful surveys, it's taken me 204 minutes (according to GTM) to amass 336 points (£9.07) making that an hourly rate of £2.67 an hour. If you factor in all the screen outs, typically 5 minutes each, that's another 145 minutes, which gives me an hourly rate of £1.56.
As soon as I hit my cash out threshold, I'm dumping this panel. Sadly, the payout threshold is £30.
I'm also getting fed up being spammed about new surveys which I inevitably get screened out of.
