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.
Global Test Market used to be a respectable market research company.
However, as others in this community have noted, recently, this company has gotten much worse.
For example, panelists such as myself and others in this community are denied access to their accounts, particularly when they are near to redeeming or have just redeemed their incentives.
A common excuse given by Global Test Market is that 'your account was put on hold because we have received bounce messages when attempting to reach you via your registered email address, so we thought your email address is no longer working.'
In my case, this was nonsensical because my email address was receiving messages from other senders with no problems.
My suggestion to Global Test Market users / panelists who have problems with this company is to lodge an official complaint with E.S.O.M.A.R., the governing body for market research companies worldwide.
E.S.O.M.A.R. can be reached at:-
Global Test Market is part of Kantar Group of companies, a subsidiary of W.P.P. [Wire and Plastic Products].
When lodging a complaint against Global Test Market, my suggestion is to include Kantar Group and W.P.P., as these are Global Test Market's parent companies.
Subsequently, consider lodging a complaint with your national commercial crimes division of your country's police force.
Market research companies such as Global Test Market should not be allowed to waste panelists' time and efforts and subsequently deny them their incentives.
This type of activity should be investigated by E.S.O.M.A.R. and police.
This was the first survey panel I started, but I need to reach 20 000 points to redeem, now suddenly the surveys seem to be "drying up"- Is this a general problem? Still surveys are slow, but at least it's been profitable.
This used to be my favorite survey site due to its high payout, excellent customer service and reasonable surveys. However, this has changed drastically with the increase to cashout, lower survey points awarded, screening out after completing surveys and overall horrible customer service. Like a lot of recent posts about this, it seems like they are trying to make it extremely difficult to capture points and thus get paid. Stay away until they fix this...if they every do.
Earlier my account was blocked and again reactivated. However afterwards, I am not able to redeem my points and it is showing error message. Despite my several requests, issue has not been sorted out. Very poor response and customer care service. And funny thing is that though I am not able to redeem points, I am getting lots of new survey offers!
Global Test Market is another company (like Opinionshere) that will get a lot of info from you then disqualify you so they don't have to pay out. Go ahead and gibe 'em a try. You will see a pattern of this.
