Types of Surveys Offered
GlobalTestMarket offers online surveys that help companies develop new products and services. For every successful survey completion, members are awarded points. Survey lengths vary, but are typically between 10 - 20 minutes. 1 point = approximately $0.05.
Global Test Market offers many different reward options:
Eligibility: Residents worldwide, age 14+
Global Test Market is an online survey panel operated by GMI (Global Market Insite, Inc.), now owned by Lightspeed Research. Global Test Market has approximately 5.5 million members across 200 different countries.
They updates on your reward system in surveys:
* Surveys have less value in points. Example: Surveys 40 MarketPoints = 25 min approximately, now 35 Markets points / 25 minutes. Surveys 35 MarketPoints = between 15-20 minutes, NOW: 15-20 minutes = 30 points. 30 MarketPoints surveys, were lowered to 22 points.....
* The truth, they degraded the advantage given to the panelist.
* Payment via PAYPAL, before 2300 was MarketPoints = 100$. NOW: 2400 MarketPoints = 100$.
* Continue with technical problems start a survey error, limiting unless you do surveys a day. And from what I see, they are more difficult to complete surveys.
Have maintained is the seriousness payments, fulfilling the days ruled by them. Amazon Gift Card is the same value 1100 = $ 50, there was no modification.
Had qualified with 4 stars above, but now it under 1 Star = 3
GTM, it seems like a good option, but making these changes, I think they will continue losing panelists. Please give more benefits.
Greetings to all.
NEW UPDATE AUG 06 2015
.........It is becoming more difficult to survey in this company. Before they made their nefarious change daily was between 3-5 surveys, sometimes 2 but mostly between 3-5 surveys, approximately 80-130 MarketPoints per day! Per month, you could get 100 to $ 150, but since they began to "invent" it is very difficult to get 60 MarketPoints in one day, mostly I make between 22-50 MarketPoints ... They have much lowered their level, and apparently User complaints are useless. And apparently, there is always conformist panelists who make a survey and are excited by this ..... For the love of God! GlobalTestMarket is a great company, because they suffer panelists ??
The only good thing is that still maintain the seriousness payments, and improved their customer service, and has no technical as before, the other problems, it's bad!
1100 ($ 50) Marketpoints needed to redeem, MY GOD !! another against more negative for them, PLEASE !!, STOP THAT MINIMUM down !! Lower the threshold to 550 marketpoints ($ 25) to redeem award amazon gift card !! ... Reaching 1100 points has become very difficult ...
I remove half of another star for this reason.
If you want to make money and not waste time, think long before you join this company. 4 months ago it was very good, now it is very difficult ...
NEW UPDATE: 2015-09-27
They eliminated the 5$ gift card ... my goooood....
Unfortunately getting worse this EX-great company, great company for many months, now is terrible ..
Surveys last much longer the time calculated for them. 40 surveys sent in 3 days, and qualify to 3 or 4 if much !! What a waste of time...
Not only that, the minimum threshold to redeem the rewards are MarketPoints 1080 = 45 $ paypal, 12000 = 50 $ Paypal, and they say MarketPoints 1000,.....AMAZON ONLY 1100 MP!!
Not only is it very difficult to qualify in the polls/surveys, to accumulate all the points can last a long time sitting at a computer to be lucky to qualify in 2-3 surveys !! There are days shipping to 20 surveys my e-mail, and do not qualify for any! Months ago, easily, I did four surveys daily without much effort ...
They have always paid me, but seriously thinking of closing my membership ...
Recommendations for users: FLEE !!! And the saddest thing of all, if a user complains to contact the customer, the company may close the account for that user .... They do nothing to improve your company, more profit for them. Users Fuck doing surveys ...
Recommendations for GTM:
* Lowering the threshold for payment: 525MP = 25$ Gift Card, 600MP = 25$ Paypal, or maybe a little more, but 1080MP??? MY GOD !. Before it was something easy reach that minimum now is very difficult.
GTM, still have opportunity again be excellent survey company, go go!!
Thanks to all.
They are reputable and always pay, but their extreme pay decrease is really unprecedented since 2014. Seems like they are really greedy, 40% decline is way too much I find myself alienated from doing surveys with them now.
UPDATE: Quit panel. Not going to take a 50% decrease since 2013 they must be comedians lol. I work hard at work and doing surveys after/before work, tiring my hands for current points is pathetic. They should've raised points like 10% since 2013 to keep up with inflation not cut 50%.
Have done 32 surveys and been screened out of all of them, one survey after answering 25 questions I was informed that I was not what they were looking for, looks like they had all their info they wanted and decided they did not want to pay.
It looks like this one is a for "fun" site only, don't expect to get 1200 points in this lifetime.
Like many others I am very disappointed with the dramatic turn GTM took this summer. All of a sudden survey that used to pay well pay almost nothing and they increased the amount of points needed to cash out. If you are willing to take surveys for fun and care less about rewards, this is for you. If you are doing this because you believe you contribute valuable work that should be mutually beneficial to the survey company and to you, this is not for you. It is too bad because they used to be a great company that paid well.
Global Test Market used to be pretty good and reliable. Now I'm screened out of 90% of surveys, points needed to redeem has been upped, and in a flash 300 earned points disappeared overnight. I keep a very close tally on points earned. Contacted them 3x but no response. What's happening?
