WARNING: As of early 2018, many OpinionBar users have been experiencing problems collecting payment and customer service inquiries appear to be going unanswered. Please bear this in mind if you are continuing to complete surveys for OpinionBar.

Millions of people express their opinions with OpinionBar each year! Since 1999, OpinionBar has been conducting online surveys on a large variety of subjects. They have worked with many international brands like UNICEF, Yahoo, Microsoft and Heineken, to name a few. Join OpinionBar and influence the future of business. OpinionBar is run by MetrixLab BV, an international online market research company.

Perks of Joining OpinionBar

OpinionBar offers its members the option to take online surveys, some of which are game-like in nature, or even test new products (and keep them!) before they are released. The fun and easy nature of the surveys make it simple to give your opinion on decisions being made by large corporations. You may also be asked to judge the latest websites or TV commercials or to participate in online brainstorms.

Earn Up To €10 Per Survey

Members who take online surveys will earn between €1.00 and €10.00 for each survey they complete. Panelists will be invited to participate in at least one survey per month and most can be completed in a short 10 minutes, although higher paying surveys may take longer. Even if you are screened out, OpinionBar will reward you with €0.10 for your time. Unlike other panels, you receive cash, not vouchers!

Earn Cash or Donate

Once your account reaches a balance of €10.00, members have two options. They may either request a payment via bank transfer or donate their earnings to a charity of their choice. Payments are issued on the 1st week of every month, and may take up to six weeks to show up in bank records, depending on the country you reside in.

Eligibility: Multiple members can join from the same household who are 18+.

customer service

November 8, 2015 by Vlad from United States

I had several problem with the Opinionbar company.
1. they sent me links to surveys which had already closed.
2. I have not receive a credit for two completed surveys.
3. last survey "Your thoughts are important to us!" took me to the middle, then website came with last page " Server Error in Application "WEBSURVEY5.OPINIONBAR.COM".
I sent e-mail to the company - no reply (no contact phone listed), then to the parent company, MetrixLab - no reply. Called, left message with Metrix Lab. Will let you know, if they will respond.

Never Responds to Inquiries!

Been registered for over 5-years. Completing a survey can be basic or something unique and more involved. But if the survey errors or if the reward isn't credited to your account in the end, don't expect a response, ever, from their support. Only a few times needing their assistance, but only one support request has been answered in 5-years, That's really bad no matter what country they are located. Have even tried to get their attention through social media and contacting their parent company directly, and still nothing. If they want loyal members with honesty and integrity, they have to return the same, and without delay.

Not bad

June 15, 2015 by Eden from United Kingdom

It does take quite a bit of time until you get to the redemption of £10 but the surveys have good topics and incentives. Nice to be paid through bank transfers- would be good if there was paypal as payment would obviously be quicker. Its not a bad site and you will at some point get to £10, but you don't get a large amount of surveys to complete, recently I've had a few so that was good.

Don't expect too much...

May 25, 2015 by Kylie from United Kingdom

I had been with these guys for a few years and although I quite liked them, I found increasingly it would either screen me out (and give me 10p) but most annoyingly and the reason I unsubscribed is because you would get half-way through a survey and the next button won't do anything! My netbook is completely fine and brand new, I've not had any other problems and their help don't even bother to contact you back or take weeks, I've only ever contacted them a couple times and it hasn't been a great response. It's a shame as they payout when they say they will and it goes into your bank which is the only reason I'm giving it three stars as I find this much better than vouchers and points!

Worst of the worst

April 28, 2015 by Wilmer from United States

Slow as hell and after I spent 30 minutes answering questions, it told me that I didn't qualify for the survey.
