Ipsos Background Information
The Ipsos i-Say online survey panel is operated by Ipsos Insight, a division of Ipsos. Ipsos is one of the world's largest online marketing research companies which conducts over 6 million surveys annually in over 100 countries.
Note: The European version of this panel, Ipsos Access Panels, has merged with Ipsos i-Say. They are now one.
I was a member of I-say, and completed many of their surveys with no problem until I mentioned in a comment section on their website that their reward system had a small flaw that should be addressed. Suddenly I stopped getting survey invitations, and my membership cancelled. When I contacted them, they say that their analysis showed "contradictory answers" so I was terminated. I'm a member of other survey sites (mintvine, yougov, etc.) that also do checks for consistency and I've never had a problem with any of them, so this sudden expulsion doesn't seem right. I often don't qualify for most surveys but I'm honest anyway. I think blacklisting someone for a comment they don't like is a poor business ethic.
They normally offer decent payouts when you get directed to them from portal sites. I've tried doing these surveys through several different links. I've also signed up before too.
The way their screening system works seems very strange. Sometimes you will get asked the same question several times during one screening. Note, this is not during different surveys but during the actual sneering process itself.
When the site works, its decent. But they also like to send you tons of emails and as far as I can tell you can't stop receiving them unless you turn off your membership. So there's no "Don't email me option"
I know there are several other sites that do this "Survey Roulette" but its very frustrating to be asked the same question over and over again 10 times that isn't even part of a survey just to finally reach the end and realize there are no surveys.
No, my Race and Gender has not changed in the last 2 minutes. Please stop asking.
Their customer support is down right rude and they do not like to take constructive feedback. They are very stubborn and not sincere at all.
This site normally is high paying when you get linked to it from other sites. However the problem with it is that it will not remember your information even when you are a registered member. It will constantly ask you the same questions even right after you get screened out. Yes several other sites are guilty of this too but this site takes it to a new level.
I almost gave it a one star rating but the only thing saving it from that is the fact they do pay out. But its rare.
As far as I know they do not offer paypal cash out and if you sign up as a registered member they do not offer the option to not receive emails. They tell you if you don't want emails that you have to delete your account.
Its sad that they do not realize by changing a few small things that would cost them very little money they would perform so much better. They are one of several sites that give the online survey community a bad name and they just don't care that they do.
Even Sampilicious is making an attempt to get better because of negative feedback.... and thats saying a lot.
Deleted me no notice and forfeited points. Said had not logged in but false since I had done recent surveys
The pay out on this site takes forever. Long surveys are worth barely any points (45-90 points), which is really the equivalent of cents if you are trying to cash out via Paypal. You need about 1450 points to cash out via Paypal (for $15).
The survey site is fun at times - there are sweepstakes you can enter for answering entertaining trivia questions after completing a survey, or if you get turned down for a survey. I spend a LOT of time trying to qualify for a survey, sometimes going through questions for 10 minutes only to be turned away. I wish their survey screening was better using member data, because that's why I don't use the site very often.
I also participated in an invited community forum on purchasing habits over Christmas. I enjoyed it a lot, and ended up winning both a $10 gift certificate and a $20 gift certificate (I chose Amazon gift certificates). The survey panels were worth my time.
It's worth a look, but I recommend OneOpinion and Opinion Outpost over Ipsos. Only use if you have time to burn...lots of time.
I've been with these guys for years, but their quality of service has gone down dramatically in the last year or so.
Surveys I've taken have not been credited, and neither were the points I was promised for being screened out of certain surveys.
While it's quite difficult to get hold of the correct people (there are many different variations of the brand depending on your location), they did eventually get back to me and corrected the issues I had. However, there seems to me to be an issue with the administration due to their falling standards.
