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+.

Few Surveys

December 21, 2015 by Terry from Canada

I think I received a couple surveys during the time I was a member, which was from 2011. I had $0.10 in my account when I finally decided to unsubscribe my account today (12/21/2015). I received a couple surveys that were already closed and after closely reviewing their prizing, I noticed that they asked for my banking information and also paid by Paypal, neither of which are favourable to my circumstances. The lack of surveys though is why I give it the lowest rating possible.

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.

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.

No Surveys...

October 28, 2013 by curtis from United Kingdom

since Nov '12. Emailed asking for an update on their service - no reply. In a year's membership only sent seven surveys. Not worth bothering with!

Suddenly not paying

September 25, 2013 by Karen from United Kingdom

I see I'm not the only one who hasn't been paid. They have previously paid out around the first week of the month after cashing out, but this time nothing. Cashed out £10.10 in June, email says it was processed on 8th July, but money was never received into my bank account. Have messaged their Helpdesk 3 or 4 times, each one ignored. They still send invitations, the last of which I returned, saying not until I receive my money for the last lot - surprisingly the email didn't bounce. For £10 it's hardly worth pursuing, but I will be sending back any more survey invitations with a suitable comment. I'm quite surprised that they've suddenly turned bad, can only presume they've gone or are about to go bust.

In answer to the comment dated 22nd Sept: "OpinionBar don't have that many surveys very often, but they do pay." - I can assure you that this time they did not pay me.
