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+.

Major fail after study is over

March 27, 2015 by MP from United States

They had my son do a study for 6 weeks. During this time they were friendly and answered emails promptly. But after the study was over, they stopped communication -- they are now claiming that the item to be returned to them was never returned, and until it was my son would not get payment. They are in the Netherlands, so there is no way to file a complaint against them.

Don't expect much.

February 28, 2015 by Leo from United Kingdom

After a few years had enough! I redeemed about £11 a year despite having logged daily and tried possibly all the surveys available, which could have been ok had it been a more serious website.

CONS: Not existent c-s. eg. payment was rejected (same details as previous payment, so couldn't explain why, unless it was their way to just delay payments!), not a single reply, maybe an automated one. After 3 months payment was successful.

However, I recently wasted too much time:
With their app-survey a few times, emailed asked for help, whether they had my completed survey, but never received a single reply.
Similarly happened with a few online surveys, which I completed and other re-tried, but then magically appeared all closed the next day. Not a single reply from c-s.

I don't think there is anybody behind their website, it must be all run by computers hence the incapability to humanly reply.

The PRO is that you can redeem the available balance directly to your bank, once reached the 'achievable' minimum of £10.
You may also receive 5/10p if you dnq. Some surveys were nice, but others really too long.
Overall Not worth my effort. I'm done with them.

VERY SLOW but DOES pay

October 13, 2014 by Judith from United Kingdom

Takes ages to reach £10 payout as you often get screened out of their usually £1 surveys.
However they do provide good, well set out surveys and they do pay - well they have always paid me anyway.
My advice - I belong to about 40 surveys sites and I just go to the sites or wait for invitations, as necessary and over time I find that I am pleasantly surprised when I reach the payout.

Received payment at last

January 12, 2014 by Robert from United Kingdom

It took me a long while but I finally received a payment for just over £10. It did however take a long time to arrive in my bank from requeting.

The surveys are usually £1 each but you do get screened out quite a bit. Average length surveys though. Not great but ok and they pay.

Avoid

December 23, 2013 by Mick from United Kingdom

The surveys are interesting although not very frequent. The site gives the impression of a professional outfit. Don't be deceived.
I applied for my £10 reward and within a few weeks their site said that I had been paid. This was untrue. I wrote 4 emails over a 4 week period. I also wrote an email to their parent company MetrixLab. Not one response.
If you want to spend many hours completing surveys for no reward, this is the site for you.
Should be investigated and shut down.
