Participate in a Variety of Research Studies

Survey Details
Most surveys will take about 5 to 10 minutes to complete. However, some survey opportunities may last longer than this but will be compensated in proportion to time spent.

Choose from 3 Great Reward Options!
Each time you complete a survey you will be rewarded between £0.25 and £10. Longer and more complex studies could be rewarded up to £50 each. Once you finish a survey, your earnings will be deposited directly into your PanelBase account. Rewards may be cashed out once £10 has been accumulated. There are three great options to choose from:

  • BACS: Deposit straight into your bank account
  • Vouchers: Choose from over 70 retail outlets from the Love2shop and Compliments websites. Vouchers are delivered within 7 days of purchase.
  • Donate: Donate your earnings to a non-profit that makes a difference! Current options include: World Wildlife Fund, British Red Cross and Oxfam.

Monthly Sweepstakes
Some surveys with PanelBase also offer members an entry into prize draws in addition to cash earnings. In these draws you could win anything from a £100 shopping voucher to the hottest electronics or even a case of quality wine! In addition to this draw, each survey you complete also gains you one entry into the monthly prize draw, which consists of the following cash prizes:

  • 2 x £50.00
  • 10 x £10.00
  • 20 x £5.00

"Regular surveys"
January 25, 2017 by Melissa from United Kingdom

I've been with panelbase for about a year now and receive regular surveys to complete (usually 1-3 a day). I qualify for around half of them and rewards given are usually fair.

Pay out can be a little slow, sometimes taking more than a week for a BACS payment, however having the option to have the funds paid directly into your bank rather than paypal or amazon vouchers is a nice advantage over other sites. I've never had issues with withdrawing money and have earned a decent amount of money since registering with them

"Lots of screenouts, but good pay"
January 06, 2017 by Amanda from United Kingdom

I don't know whether it's just my demographics that don't fit with the majority of Panelbase surveys, but I get a high screenout rate with them. However, I have cashed out with them a couple of times, and the surveys are generally pretty interesting. I'll be keeping them on my to-do list for now.

"Waste of time!!!!!"
November 17, 2016 by Jan from United Kingdom

I have filled in numerous surveys, many of which stopped me halfway through to say I did not qualify. This was after I had disclosed lots of personal information about my bank accounts, pension, savings, ideas on retirement, what I watch on tv, who lives in my house etc. Up to now my GRAND TOTAL is just over a fiver (£3 of which was added as a starter incentive by Panelbase.) Really, don't bother, this is a complete waste of time and you will give up a lot of your time and a lot of your personal information.

"Love them."
November 16, 2016 by Tanya from United Kingdom

I am always wary of giving positive reviews as I know how some sites can be great at first and then go bad. I have cashed out 3 times so far and I have always got my money with no problems. I am 20p away from my next cash out and I only joined in July. Its not the quickest way to earn but it is still much quicker than some sites. I get screened out a bit but thats just how survey sites work and tbh at least I get surveys! The surveys I do get are fair and do not take longer than they say. I also enjoy them which is a plus for me. 5/5 so far but will of course update if I get any problems.

"Excellent UK Surveys"
November 03, 2016 by JD from United Kingdom

Absolutely no complaints about these guys this year,
plenty of surveys and efficient payouts.
Would highly recommend them for the UK
as at Nov/2016, but no idea how the US or EU
markets will be with them.
