Interesting Topics and Opportunities

As a panel member of Opinium Panel, you will have the opportunity to participate in both online surveys and focus group research activities. The panel focuses on providing interesting topics including: social issues, development testing and website usability.

Short, Fun Surveys!

The Opinium Panel feels it is important to keep their surveys short and sweet. Most range from 10 - 12 questions and take about 5 minutes to complete. You may be invited to participate in longer surveys as well, but the compensation will increase in proportion to your time spent. Act fast! Most surveys only remain open for 48-72 hours. You can expect to receive 4 or more surveys a month.

Rewards Offerings

You will receive cash for each survey that you complete with Opinium Panel. The average payment per survey is 50p, and will show up in your account within 24 hours of taking the survey. You may cash out your rewards once your account reaches £25.

Reward Options

You have 4 options for payout:

  • Cheque
  • Bank transfer
  • Amazon voucher
  • Charitable donation to a non-profit of your choice.

Once you have reached your minimum payout £25, you will be sent a short survey that will ask you which pay out method you prefer. A typical payment may range from 15-20 days, depending on your choice of payment.

Survey Details

Most panel members should receive at least 3 survey invitations each month. It should be noted that panelists must complete a minimum of 3 surveys per year to be considered an active member of Opinium Panel.

Screening out on high paying surveys

July 25, 2020 by Ben from United Kingdom

Generally a good company but they love to screen out on their extremely rare high paying surveys.

Never pay

July 1, 2020 by Anna from United Kingdom

This is an awful site you do the work then they refuse to send payment. No matter how many time you contact them they never reply.

My advice is to never join up.

Warning bells

April 22, 2020 by Trevor from United Kingdom

I'm certain I have now reached the £25 payment threshold so should be able to redeem my points. Unfortunately I have been unable to access the site for the past week, so I suspect either shenanigans or that something is awry.

(Later) The site has been updated and I received my payment. This remains one of the better sites in my experience.

No Payout

April 7, 2020 by Fraser from United Kingdom

Paid out fine for the first few months but now no payment for 2 months and Facebook messages on their page from several members saying the same. AVOID. More messages on their Facebook page of non payment.

Update: Takes a while to get to the withdrawal limit as very few survey opportunities but they have been paying out on time now.

April 2020 Update: Regular surveys now and payment within 2 weeks.

Appalling Service

December 15, 2019 by Jill from United Kingdom

Been a member for a long time and have about £100 saved. 2 weeks ago my account disappeared and my email address is no longer recognised. So far I have emailed 3 times, sent 3 private messages through facebook and tweeted twice and have had absolutely no response whatsoever. Disappointed and researching what to do next in relation to the money outstanding.
