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:
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.
I like this company, I receive a lot of surveys from them and have gotten paid quite a bit from them, I usually get amazon cards or a cheque, either one is good, surveys aren't overly long or dysfunctional, one of the only ones I do anymore
They ask you many questions (10 aprox) and then they will say: sorry, it turns out you have been screened out of this particular survey, so they don't pay you and they keep your answers. If you manage to stay on several surveys, probably after spending 10 hours you will get a $10 gift card.
This survey site really showed promise.
I received survey invites fairly regularly. After building up to the required payout threshold, I requested a payout and received a cheque in due course which was deposited without issue.
I continued to use the service and when I again hit the payout threshold, I requested a redemption. I waited the required 10 weeks, but the cheque never arrived, I emailed the company and they replied advising that they would review. After a week I received another email requesting I give them my address again - which I did. They advised I needed to wait another 10 weeks. That was over a year ago now.
I continued to complete surveys and placed another redemption order.
The 10 weeks came and went twice more in respect of the second redemption (in the mean time I never received the cheque in respect of the third redemption either and followed the same procedure as occurred previously, namely emailing, providing my address and waiting 10 weeks).
The 'third' 10 week period expired last week, I emailed the company again who advised me that they will only issue cheques three times and then they write off the cheque - so I have now lost that payment.
I continually requested them to pay me via paypal (as many other survey companies offer), but they indicated they do not offer this as a payout mechanism.
I am sorely disappointed at this company, it appears that they just built confidence by making payment of the first redemption and then just delay on every other payment request.
Please be careful guys and girls when using this company, they appear great and reply to emails, but here I am sitting waiting over a year for payments of services rendered to them only to find out now that they have written off the amount (sure it was in their terms and conditions, but suddenly it feels like there is a reason they have that in their terms and conditions)
Hello everyone. I am a member of GTM for 1 year, and truth have always paid me within the limits established by them, from 5-10 days straight for amazon gift card which is what mostly redemption. And I give 4 stars for the following
1. Excellent payment methods. (Paypal, Amazon gift card codes by email)
2. Many surveys sent to email in a day, between 10-20 days surveys.
3. Payments within set days of 5-10 days.
4.- have improved customer service, before time was much par respond, respond now in a maximum of five days, not bad, but should improve a bit that point.
5. You finish one survey, and get the corresponding points, do not wait between 2-4 weeks to request payment points.
1. We must accumulate 1100 points to redeem the minimum prize, $ 50 Amazon gift card, which can take some time to reach the minimum threshold.
(They should lower the minimum score to redeem).
2. Should give away some points for time spent if the panelist is outside the survey. Give away sweepstakes entries, but not everyone likes that method.
3. There are days in which to open a survey that arrives by email, causes a technical mistake and happen very often.
Conclusion: A good panel has helped me a lot with my son expenses. I get about 100$ per month with GTM!
There are users who say they have up to 60$ per week, he is hard to believe, but maybe possible.
I recommend it!
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.
Total waste of my time.. the prize does not ever equal any time spent! Constantly screened out.. should be screened prior to sending out surveys.. why waste my time for nothing... can spend 3 hours doing the start of surveys and never earn a thing... SORRY an entry for a sweepstakes draw... 15 billion entries for one prize every 18 months! I think not... SORRY, your cart total does not meet the minimum points to redeem. Your cart must total 1,000 MarketPoints or more. You will need to select additional items or vouchers to reach the required minimum. You have earned the reward but you can not redeem until you have more than 1000 points... in about 4 years I have not qualified for enough points to even have a redemption history on my account! VERY UNFAIR!.. now today there is a notice that they have even removed the reward card redemption! Hmmmm why bother?
Also the recent consumer review with Watch these four videos on youtube... well I got so much crap on the feed back from several survey sites on that survey... you have to have flash loaded... it is! But the survey just gets to the youtube page and sits there... watch all the videos listed on the page.. .makes no difference.. you still just sit there!
I say undoubtedly this one is a FAIL!
