Comment: I’m definitely pleased that I became a Global Test Market Member almost 2 years ago. While I would not rate them as the best, they are certainly up there in accordance to survey invites and rewards per survey. They also offer a variety in subject matter when it comes to survey topics, and have offered me sweepstakes entries and a small points’ bonus for surveys I have not qualified for. Every reward no matter how small adds up.

The only negative that I could comment on was poor customer service here and there, with member support taking an awful long time to get back to me over problems I was having. Since going through this though, I have made a complaint to which a response was quickly sent back saying that they were sorry for the delays and that they were currently looking into how best to improve member support. I must say that since making this complaint I have not had any further problems when seeking out support.

Overall, Global Test Market has given me the opportunity to share my opinions on topics that are relatable and relevant to my life, and has also provided me with extra $20 a month (on average) that I otherwise would not have had.

Comment: I love...love...love global test market. Surveyhead and Vindale Research are good too but they’re no competition for global test market. It really is a great survey-taking website. I signed up with them about 4 years ago actually and according to the reward records section on my account I have cashed out to-date 20,000 points in the form of 50 dollar checks which is 400 dollars. Trust me, sometimes those 50 dollars checks really come in handy. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t mind getting a 50 dollar check every now and then. Usually I’m able to cash out my reward points on global test market every 4 or 5 months. I receive many survey invitations (sometimes too many) in my email inbox. I guess you have to remember on survey-taking websites that you win some and you lose some. In other words it's impossible to be able to qualify for every survey. But I’m not complaining. I qualify for some of them. It’s pretty rare for me during any given week to not be able to qualify for at least 1 survey. Often times it’s like 2 or 3 surveys that I qualify for in a week. I guess I tend to fit into the right demographics for their surveys which is good. :) The only thing that bothers me about global test market is the amount of repeat emails sent for the same survey invitations. One email is really enough. But despite the little bit of email spamming I guess it really is a great survey survey-taking website. I recommend joining if you haven’t already!

Comment: Honestly I feel that Global Test Market puts other survey panels/websites to shame. Ok, so maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration but it’s definitely one of the best out there if not the best. I’ve been a member of Global Test Market since February of 2009 and I’ve managed to cash out 6 times.
Being an active member of a survey panel for over 3 years and managing to cash out 6 times may not sound that great if you are uninformed of the fact that the minimum amount needed to cash out with Global Test Market is fifty dollars. Each point that you earn is also worth 5 cent which may also not sound that great if you don’t know that the reward amounts for surveys tend to range from 30 to 80 points. I’m only speaking from personal experience. Perhaps others have earned or been given the opportunity to earn more or less than 80 points but it’s always been between 30 and 80 to me. 80 point surveys is a rarity but I have managed to qualify for and complete maybe 3 or 4 surveys that were worth this amount.
Perhaps what I like most about Global Test Market is that they really send out a lot of survey invitations via email. I try to take at least 2 or 3 surveys a week with Global Test Market. Like any other survey panel, some of them I qualify for and some of them I don’t. That's to be expected.
But also what I like the most about Global Test Market is also one of the things I like the least. They really send out A LOT of survey invitations to the point where most of the emails are just repeats. More often than not I get the same survey invitation sent to my inbox multiple times a day which can be kind of annoying. But I guess its better to receive too many emails than hardly no emails at all. If that was the case then I would have probably stopped working with Global Test Market a long time ago.
Another thing I also dislike about Global Test Market is the fact that receiving a check in the mail is your only payment option. It typically takes 6-8 weeks to receive a check which is a little bit of a wait. A PayPal payment would be awesome but unfortunately that’s not offered which may not be so bad considering that you’re receiving a fifty dollar check. There’s not much room for complaints when you’re receiving 50 dollars.
In some way it’s actually almost exciting to wait for a 50 dollar check from Global Test Market because as a college student there’s never a time when I can’t find a use for extra money. And with Global Test Market I genuinely feel like the 50 dollar reward is fair and worth it when you put in the amount of time and effort needed to complete the surveys which often times are not very interesting.
So yes, I would certainly recommend Global Test Market. Honestly I think this survey panel is about as close to perfect (of course it has it’s flaws) as any survey panel can get but this is just based off my personal experience with it.
I hope my review was helpful!

Comment: Global Test Market – www.globaltestmarket.com

Hi,

Founded in 1999, Global Test Market is part of Global Market Insite (GMI), Inc., one of the world's leading providers of market research. Serving more than 1400 clients and providing a global solution for companies that wish to conduct online consumer research across more than 60 countries.

Visiting the www.globaltestmarket.com website presents me with a formal style but busy home page, mostly blue on a white background.
The website caters for all participating countries and has a multilingual facility. A “Change Language” button is provided at the bottom of the screen, clicking this button presents me with a very impressive list of 22 languages, selecting a language immediately translates the site into the chosen language.

The main focus of the Home page is an impressive graphic of many hands supporting the Earth together with a brief description of the function and the benefits of the site.
Along the top of the page is a series of clickable buttons:-
“Home” – this page,
“Join” – leads me to a page where I enter all my personal details, this is duplicated in other places on the home page,
“Benefits” – a quick but encouraging description,
“FAQs” – a very comprehensive set of FAQs,
“About Us” – purpose, history and policies, however there are no details of office locations or telephone numbers, these can be found on their parent Company GMI website.
“Contact Us” – providing a means for sending questions and comments to Support.

These buttons are duplicated towards the bottom of the screen together with:-
“Sitemap” – really just a full menu rather than a sitemap,
“Privacy Policy” – always good to be aware of this,
“Terms of Use” – comprehensive details,
“Change Language” – as described above.

Clicking the “Member Login” button allows me to enter my Email address and Password, I am immediately taken to my personal Home page where I have a new set of buttons at the top of the page:-

“My Details” – allows me to check my personal details and edit them if necessary,
“Surveys” - presents me with a list of and status of my NINE personal profiles covering Basics, Household, Travel, Employment, Financial, Technology, Medical, Vehicle and Interests. If any are expired then a button is provided to allow me to update them.
This is followed by a list of surveys currently available to me. From experience, I have discovered this list is not always accurate and kept updated since I have discovered links to surveys which have expired or in which I have already participated.
“Rewards” – provides information about my Total MarketPoints since joining, and my Current MarketPoints Total, more about MarketPoints later.
I also find links taking me to “Recent MarketPoints Activity” - a very useful list of surveys I have completed together with the reference Number, the Date, and the number of MarketPoints awarded, “Recent Sweepstakes Entries” – some of the shorter surveys award sweepstake entries rather than MarketPoints, and “Redemption History” – providing a list of my MarketPoints redemptions including the date and the number of points.
“Refer a Friend” - provides me with a screen into which I can type the email addresses of up to 10 friends. When a referral completes their first survey I receive 20 MarketPoints.
“Sweepstakes” – provides a link to the daily and quarterly sweepstakes rules and a link to a comprehensive list of winners which includes the amount of prize money won, the name and initial of the winner, their City and Country, and the date won – so Global Test Market are not shy about publishing their sweepstake winners – very encouraging.

Now, on to surveys and rewards.

I receive invitations to take surveys in my inbox as an attractive but formal looking email, and, at times can be very often, sometimes up to three in one day.
Each survey has a unique reference number and quotes the reward as a number of MarketPoints - but there is no mention of an expected completion time, but all the information is there for me to keep a record of each survey I take and when.
From experience, the majority of surveys are for rewards of 35, 40 and 60 MarketPoints and such surveys would last about 15 to 25, 20 to 30 and 25 to 40 minutes respectively. Yes, the timings are very flexible, although rewards can be up to 125 MarketPoints but these are few and would last an hour or more. One thing I have discovered is that the time to complete surveys for a particular reward can vary widely. I find it necessary to assess each invitation separately, and, since many Global Test Market surveys are passed to a partner site, I find it a good idea to check the estimated time once I have started the survey on the partner site.

Qualifying for surveys is not guaranteed, and, considering the plethora of personal information they possess in my personal profiles, I am surprised that I am rejected from surveys at all - but sure enough I do suffer quite a few screen-outs.

I need a minimum of 1000 MarketPoints before I can redeem, although I have the option to continue taking surveys and accumulating past the 1000 points if I wish. If I redeem 1000 points I receive a cheque (check) for the equivalent of US$50 but converted into my own currency of GBP. This format seems to be typical for all participating countries.

Applying this value to the survey rewards and timings quoted above we see that:-
35 MarketPoints = 15/25 minutes = US$1.75
100 MarketPoints = 60+ minutes = US$5.00.

This makes Global Test Market an average earner but this is compensated by the number of surveys received – I just have to work a little harder.

I consider the payment by cheque (check) method to be the Achilles heel of Global Test Market. The costs incurred in printing, preparing and posting cheques (checks) must be many times more than cheaper, simpler and faster payment methods such as PayPal. Furthermore, accumulating 1000 points can take me a long time, about eight months on average.
Adopting payments through PayPal would make everyone happier, and perhaps would allow the redemption threshold to be lowered and make payments more frequent, of lower value of course – but would involve less waiting. Reading through some of the many reviews for survey panels from other contributors here on Yellow Surveys, I find that I am not alone in my opinion that having to wait too long to redeem points for payment can be a little off-putting.

Since joining Global Test Market in December 2008, I have successfully completed about 188 surveys and earned over US$210, which I consider to be attributable to the sheer number of surveys completed and not necessarily the intrinsic value of the surveys. I have never had any problems in the redemption process, usually receiving the cheque (check) 4-5 weeks after redeeming.
If you are willing to tolerate the long wait whilst your MarketPoints build up, then I can recommend joining Global Test Market.

I hope my review has helped you decide whether to join Global Test Market.

Thanks…
Allan

Comment: I would only recommend this survey to people with lots of extra time on their hands. It actually takes too long to complete the survey to make a living at this. It also seems to be a form of marketing that asks for your credit card, which isn't the same as employment. It should not be confused as a research job. There needs to be better, more consistent ways to make money online but at least this site represents a crack in the door.

Comment: For me, Global Test Market has been great! I get plenty of survey offers, most of which I qualify for, and their rewards payouts come on time! As a member of quite a few survey companies, I have found that there are a lot claims made by all and very few who actually adhere to what they claim. GTM is one of a few companies that have managed to uphold their claims. I must say though that when I do get an invite to a survey that holds fair reward, it is in your best interest to jump on it quick before your demographic fills and ends up screening you out.

Another thing about GTM that I like is that it doesn’t take an eternity to see some rewards by way of cash! I had only been a member for about 4 months before I was able to make my first payout request – better still was that it arrived within the said time. While I have had great success with Global Test Market, there will always be members who do not feel the same; but that is just how the ball rolls with survey companies.

I have had no problems with Global Test Market and will continue to remain as a member while I am having success with them.

Comment: It is really really good to earn a bit of extra money, I am just worried about how long it is going to take me to earn the money and I have experienced twice already that sometimes it just skips it and says that u didn't complete it when you did so you don't get the points you should be rewarded.

Comment: I simply love Globaltestmarket and their surveys. I have been a member for about 9 months and I like the fact that I earn 5 points for non-qualification of a survey - makes me feel that my time isn't wasted doing their surveys. I receive frequent surveys from them every week, sometimes as many as 3 per day, so I accrue points easily. I am pleasantly surprised that they will answer my queries and am very happy to receive their cheques when I make a redemption. This is the best survey site to me and I strongly recommend Globaltestmarket to anyone who wants a pleasant experience doing online surveys.

Comment: It's been two years now that I've been with Global Test Market. I would still have to say that they are the best survey panel online. They send out tons of surveys, many I don't qualify for but some I do. With Global Test Market you have to acquire 1,000 points which is equal to fifty dollars before you can cash out. It usually takes around 4-6 weeks to receive your check(yeah, check only, no Paypal) but it's worth the wait. The only problem I would say I have with this panel is that they constantly send out way too many surveys that I've taken or tried to take already but overall I would say GTM is a very good, legitimate survey panel where you can actually make some real money, but keep in mind, that its going to take quite a bit of time and patience to achieve that goal.

Comment: Global Test Market is one of those slow and steady sites. Their surveys arrive on average twice a week and I've qualified for most of them. They are one of my favorites as they don't have points pending for months. They are awarded pretty quickly after doing the survey (within 24 hours).

Reward points are between 15 and 40 per survey. It takes a while to reach the minimum redemption amount of 1000 points but when you do its worth $50. The downside is they only pay out in checks, so no paypal. They also have sweepstakes entries. When you don't qualify you still receive an entry into they daily ($300) and quarterly draws (different amounts up to $5000).

Their customer support is great and the answers are not generic canned messages. They will investigate technical problems and reward you points for the time it took you to complete the survey.

Overall it's worth the time and effort to join this site.

Comment: GlobalTestMarket have provided me with a steady amount of surveys, averaging at about 3 to 5 surveys a week, with 15-40 points for each survey offered. Therefore it has not taken long to reach the cash out point of 1000 points = $50 cheque. In addition to the points earned per completed survey, you also get entered into daily and quarterly sweepstakes for cash prizes.

Their customer service has been surprisingly exceptional, with my technical problem being addressed within 24 hours of me sending them an email; something which has often been a problem with other survey companies.

Overall, I enjoy taking the surveys, especially when you can see your points accredited to your account almost immediately. I would recommend this survey site to anyone looking for a steady stream of surveys, its well worth joining.

Comment: For me, GlobalTestMarket have been one of my favourite survey companies. I have been a member for almost 2 years and have earned over $670 so far. They are one of the most reliable at paying out in a timely fashion, which has been a problem for me with other survey companies. That is one reason why I would recommend GlobalTestMarket above other companies; another reason is because even when I couldn’t complete a survey, I was still offered a small amount of points rather than nothing. Plus other surveys have earned me entries into sweepstakes with huge cash prizes – although I have not won one of these yet, I still remain hopeful!

Overall, GlobalTestMarket are a great survey company that offer fair rewards for the amount of time spent completing a survey, and it is easy to qualify for a survey if you have taken the time to offer more information in your profile. A lot of people may think it is going to take a long time to reach the cash-out point (1000 points = $50), but with so many surveys on offer you’re sure to reach that point rather quick.

Comment: I have been doing surveys for GTM for a few years and have cashed out several times. Though some surveys are long, most are fairly quick and all are easy. I've done everything from answer questions about my movie likes to eating free food. There is definite diversity in their surveys, though there are a lot about video games.

Comment: I have been trying to make a decent amount of money online since about 6 years ago when I lost my job. In those 6 years, I have had a small handful of successes, and a massive pile of failures.

I experimented with web design, freelance writing, get-paid-to sites, etc. and nothing was working. I was either spending too much time for too small of a payment, or I was not getting paid at all by shady sites.

It wasn’t until about 2 years ago that I discovered survey sites. One of the first ones I joined was Global Test Market, and it’s been my favorite ever since.

Since I live in Australia, it’s much harder to find surveys that I can actually do. Most surveys only want U.S. participants, which makes it very hard to make a good amount of money. But when I found Global Test Market, I quickly discovered that not all survey companies were the same. GTM gave me plenty of paid survey opportunities, and they were even kind enough to pay me in my local currency instead of USD. Global Test Market truly lives up to its name, unlike most other survey sites that only cater to U.S. citizens.

I’ve had some small problems with the support team at GTM, but other than that, I love the site. It’s helped me make hundreds of dollars over the past 2 years, while giving me confidence in the survey industry, which in turn inspired me to join additional sites and make more money. If you’re looking for a new survey site, I highly recommend Global Test Market.

Comment: When the economy took a turn for the worse and prices began to rise, me and my wife began to struggle to make ends meet. To help out, I turned to the Internet to make some extra cash.

After months of messing around and not really making anything, I discovered the world of online surveys. I quickly got into it, and now am a member of 15+ survey portals. Of those panels, I have 4 which I use regularly and trust the most. One of these trusted sites I use is Global Test Market.

When I joined Global Test Market about a year ago, I wasn’t sure if the whole survey industry was legitimate, or just one massive scam. After working with GTM for a few months, I learned that it was definitely legitimate. I always got plenty of survey opportunities, and whenever I finished a survey, the points were always credited to my account very quickly. At first I was skeptical about them actually paying, but once I reached 1000 MarketPoints (the minimum payout, $50 USD), I was paid quickly and professionally. I requested a check in pounds, which was not a problem for Global Test Market. I later found out that GTM pays out in tons of different currencies, and will basically work with the individual to make sure everything goes smoothly with the payment.

I have never had any sort of problem with GTM, and none of my mates who are involved in the industry have had issues either. If you’ve been looking for a legitimate survey site to join, Global Test Market is an excellent choice.

Comment: I am a self-employed man and I run my own business. In my spare time, I do whatever I can to bring in some extra money to keep the wheels of my business turning while keeping my bills paid. Part of this is doing surveys. I have been participating in online surveys for 5 or 6 years now, more so recently. In all those years, one of my favorite survey sites has been Global Test Market. It’s not necessarily the one I earn the most from, but it is one of my personal favorites for many reasons.

Global Test Market has a worldwide user base of more than 5 million, with people from 200+ countries. They have a good selection of surveys available, although you won’t qualify for a large portion of them. When you complete a survey, you will be credited with points. The exchange rate is 1000 points=$50. It can take quite a while to reach 1000 points, which many people complain about. To me, I’d rather wait and get a $50 check than get a $20 check now and a $20 check a few months later, followed by a $10 check 6 months later.

I’ve had some friends complain to me that they don’t get enough surveys from Global Test Market, but I have not had this problem. Plus, the more surveys you complete, the more money you make. Global Test Market is a serious player in the online survey industry, and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. If you need another reliable, paying survey company to work with, check out Global Test Market.

Comment: Out of all the survey sites that I am in, I find that Global Test Market sends out by far the most. Fair enough I don't qualify for them all, but I do make some decent extra money from the site.

Pretty much for surveys you either get entries into sweepstakes draws or you get points. For the sweepstakes I can't say I am fan of them, but I try to a couple of the surveys, just so I have a few entries, you never know I may get lucky and actually win some time.

The point surveys are pretty good and offer a fair amount of points for surveys completed and 1000 points gets you a $50 payment, paid by check.

I guess at the end of the day all you want from a survey site, is a few surveys a week, easy to make their minimum payment and at the end of all to actually get paid. Global Test Market meets all those requirements, so it gets my recommendation.

Comment: So I could tell you about Global Test Market and how they send out surveys online and the surveys are worth points which convert into $50.00 for 1000 points.

I could tell you that they send out a lot of surveys and I could tell you that sometimes they send out so many that I can not do them all.

I could tell you that Global Test Market has pretty fair payments on their surveys and I could tell you that getting a few points on surveys you qualify for is really appreciated.

I could tell you that earning $50.00 with Global Test Market and getting paid is really easy.

I could tell you all of these things but I won't, what I will tell you though, if you are like me and can use some extra money and you don't want to go work a second job where you are away from your home. If you are like me and want to earn a little bit of easy money whilst at home.

Then I got to say, that paid online surveys are certainly the way to go, you aren't going to get rich from one site alone but if you join many sites and there are heaps listed here at Yellow Surveys, then you are it is quite capable of earning a fair chunk of extra cash each and every month.

With all that in mind Global Test Market is one of the better paid online survey sites out there and certainly should be one of the Top 3 sites you need to join to get started in making extra cash online.

Comment: I started my membership with global test market in may. They sent me a lot of surveys at first, but then they practically stopped. Then, after a month or so, they started again. Eventually, after 3 months I was able to get the 1000 market points required to obtain a $50 check. However, it took nearly 12 weeks to get to me, even though I was told it would only take 4-6. They have a good system going but do not expect to get fast easy money from doing online surveys here.

Comment: I have been with Global Test Market around 5 years now and in that time I have received many payments from them. They send out a ton of surveys, so much so that I find that sometimes I do not have time to complete them all. This is a good thing though and I like the fact that every couple of days I can sit down and try to do 3 or 4 surveys at a time.

For every survey completed you get Market Points, anywhere from 20 to around 300, each point is worth 5 cents. With the amount of surveys sent out it does not take long to reach their payout minimum which is only $50.00.

I like having surveys daily in my inbox and I think, the payments for the surveys are pretty fair, I personally think it is a very easy way to get paid online. Well worth checking out an having a go if you aren't already a member.

Comment: I would have to say that GlobalTestMarket is one of the best surveys panels out there. I've been with them for over a year now and I would have to say my experience with them has been overall pretty good. They seem to send alot of surveys many of them I don't qualify for but some of them I do. They send you payment by check once you've earned 1,000 points. It takes a while to recieve the check but it's worth it. Fifty dollars is good spending money to have in your pocket.

Comment: My opinion is that Global Test Market is one of the top 5 paying survey panels out there, they have had an outstanding reputation among the market research community for many years. They accept members over the age of 18 years from most countries around the world, although I've heard you're more likely to see surveys from them if you live in The United States, Canada, United Kingdom or Australia. Myself being form the United States I see quite allot of surveys from them.

Their method of paying is very simple and easy to understand, they use a point system called MarketPoints. For each survey you complete you receive an allocated amount of MarketPoints usually between 20 and 50 points per short survey and I've had several that pay 100, 200 and even 300 MarketPoints for longer surveys. The amount of you points you receive for each survey is always specified before you start any survey. For most surveys they will also award you with some points for attempting the survey and not qualifying (usually 5 points, equivalent to $0.25).

Each MarketPoint at Global Test Market is fixed against the USD at $0.05 per point, and you need 100 points to request a payment, this may seem fairly high but in my experience it doesn't take long to accumulate 1000 points (for me it takes from 3 to 6 weeks depending on the amount and types of surveys I get). Once you make a payment request you are sent a check in the mail within about 4 to 5 weeks, US residence get paid in US dollars and I believe other countries get paid in their local currencies.

Since joining with Global Test Market in mid 2007 I've been paid over $800 ($846.75 to be precise), and I'm also close to having enough to request another payment soon. Overall Global Test Market is very good survey company. Their surveys are usually fun and interesting, and you are fairly rewarded for the time it takes to complete them. Their email support is good, and payment requests are handled within a reasonable amount of time.

I recommend Global Test Market to anyone who wants to genuinely make some extra money online doing paid surveys.

Comment: I love this site. Surveys are frequent they pay by check and you need 1,000 market points to cash out. Won't be hard to do. Usually get 2-5 surveys a day ranging from 20-50 marketpoints. Beware, alot of them are sweeps and not worth it but be my guess if you like doing those. Hey you never know. Overall, recommend them. Nice support staff. Been paid several times already by them.

Note: This is only from my prosepective. I have also read lots of bad news about them.

Comment: This is definitely the best online survey website that i have come across. The surveys are regular (which is hard to come by if you are considered part of the international survey list) and the incentives are well worth it. The time quotes on the length of the surveys is sometimes inaccurate but other than that no complaints.

Comment: I've been a member of Global Test Market for about 3 years and I can honestly say they are one of the better survey companies out there. I get regular invitations to do surveys and have been paid several times. Reaching the high payout figure of $50 can sometimes take a couple of months, but it's well worth it, unlike other scam sites they do actually pay. To sum it up, it's well worth being a member of Global Test Market, and can't recommend them highly enough.

Comment: One of the best paid surveys site that I have ever come across. Surveys are hard to qualify but due to the fact that you are paid money it works out great. Highly recommended.
