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

"By far my favourite site"
May 18, 2017 by Felix from United Kingdom

The dashboard is really easy to use, they recently did an update so you can see immediately whether or not you can complete a survey using a mobile, a tablet or laptop/pc. When they say a survey will take you 7 minutes, I very rarely find it takes longer. They also connect you to a lot of other community sites which pay a lot, and some of them are from some major companies.

I nearly always cash out by bank transfer, says within 7 days on the website, and sometimes it is within 7 days, but generally I allow two weeks and have never been disappointed.

I love the fact they are very clear, if you are not going to get credit for a survey immediately, in red writing they clearly state when you will get credited, so there is no confusion.

After reaching the 10 pound threshold, takes on average week for them to clear, then another 7 days before they proceed with payments, then after that guess what, up to another 3 working days before it reaches your bank account, you could be dead and buried by time they pay out, an absolute disgrace of a survey site.

"Reudced Oppurtunity"
March 23, 2017 by Victor from United Kingdom

After I have cashed-out twice, the amount of surveys has reduced.

"Decent survey site"
February 27, 2017 by Lee from United Kingdom

Panelbase is a pretty good starting point for those who are new and want to start earning a bit of cash, because they are usually reliable with both sending out surveys and with payment.

The one small issue I have is that it's not 'always' clear when one of their surveys is actually a 'sign up' incentive where you're credited some points to join another survey site, but you can always just refuse to proceed with it.

A few years ago they introduced a new feature (similar to that found on Yougov) which allowed members to create their own questions for the community to answer, and while this was a fun addition to the site, it sadly has no impact on the amount of money you make from their official surveys.

Overall a decent survey site.

"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
