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+.

I have been waiting for 3 months for a lousy $10 to be paid to my PayPal.
Opinionbar is sleazy, and underhanded. They make so much money from companies with our surveys and they won't pay us. I am putting this review on Facebook and Instagram and Twitter. I will get thousands of people to leave Opinionbar.
Thanks for nothing!

Last page won't submit

I just did a survey that was about 20 mins. I get to the last page and it won't submit. Info farming, unethical OpinionBar!

I never can get on the site to do a survey. I used to be able but never qualified for any survey. Then the past few months, my security software wont let me get on the site.

I concur

Now April, 2017, I still havent received any payment or reply from either Opinion Bar or it's parent, Metrixlab, the phone number on the Survey Police website that is for both, no one answers. I think this is a scam outfit. I would like to report them to the EU as well. I keep getting survey invites from Opinion Bar and even complete some, but they never reply to any of my inquiries. If they dont reply this time, I will just blow them off.
I also have been a long time member of Opinion Bar, since approx 0ct, 2011. I had no problems the few times I cashed out, I even cashed out earlier in 2016, however since I requested payout 14 Oct, 2016, I havent heard a thing, I have tried to contact them twice by filling out inquiry form on their site and it has been useless. I requested a $20+ payout. If they are going to stiff me, they can at least have the balls to tell me so I can move on. I won't be attempting any more surveys from them until I get this payout I requested almost 3 months ago, now.

Does Not Pay Redemptions as Promised

April 12, 2017 by Candice from United States

April 13, 2017 still no payment or reply from this company.

March 25, 2017 and still no reply or payment. Stay away from this bogus company.

Requested Payout of $10.90 on 12/9 and today is 1/31 (website says 4-6 weeks which is crazy in the first place) and I have sent 3 emails requests with no response or payout. I will wait another month to get paid and then cancel my account - not worth the aggravation and/or time. Run to a better survey site, there are plenty that pay immediately - Survey Spot, Opinion Outpost - even Mintvine and waitimes are only 5 days - No Excuse
