"GTM use to better"
January 17, 2017 by Al from United States

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.

"It's gone way downhill"
January 16, 2017 by Henk from United States

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.

"It's ok. Not great"
January 14, 2017 by Lori from United States

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.

"Used to be better"
January 06, 2017 by Amanda from United Kingdom

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.

"Frequently Screened Out"
December 28, 2016 by Stuart from United Kingdom

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.
