Review of An Acceptable Survey Website That Pay Cash is a genuine survey website that pays you cash and has new products to try.

Global Opinion Panels, also known as 'Synovate', is a paid survey website, which has operated in 46 countries for more than 50 years. As every Global Opinion Panels experience is different in each country the review I’m writing is about Global Opinion Panels in the UK.

Sign Up:

It’s easy and free to join. You just need to visit and click a red banner at the bottom “Join our World and make your opinions count!” Then you need provide some personal information: the country you currently reside in, your first and last name, your email address, date of birth, mailing address, etc. Generally it will take about 2 or 3 minutes. When you register you will automatically be entered into Global Opinion Panels Signup Prize Draw with 10 winners quarterly and receive 100 panel points. The membership is not limited to one member per household and for the UK-based customer you can sign up via some cash back websites.

The Surveys:

Like most survey websites you can only participate in its survey after you receive an invitation via your email. In general the invitation will include the survey category, time consumption and the incentive.

The surveys are about different topics and subject matters, but mostly about products people use in their daily life. The survey rewards are calculated in panel points. Depending on the survey length the rewards start from 100 points to 600 points or even more. If you are not qualified for the full survey you will get an entry into the quarterly sweepstakes. It may take up to a few minutes after survey completion to view your points earned. In some cases it may take up to 72 hours for your points to be reflected in your online account.

The Payment:

Once your earnings reach 9000 points, which is equal to £5 you can redeem them into your nominated bank account via BACS or a cheque sent by post. Usually it would take 6-8 weeks to complete.

What I like?

First, the layout of Global Opinion Panels is very easy to navigate. You just need to click ‘my home’ on the left corner in light blue colour, then you can see 6 options: my surveys, my rewards, edit profile, completed surveys, change password and unsubscribe.

Second, on Global Opinion Panels there are regularly chances to try new products. For the past two years I’ve received a few branded products such as shampoo, dishwashing tablets and facial cream, etc.

Third, not like most survey websites that pay you vouchers or prize draw entries, Global Opinion Panels pays you cash that is always my first redemption.

What I dislike?

I have joined over 20 paid surveys websites since 2009. Global Opinion Panels is one of the meanest survey websites I have used so far.

Global Opinion Panels said they are curious people. To ascertain your opinions they don’t mind requesting you to spend 20 minutes or more for completion of a survey. If you are lucky enough to finish one you may get 60, 240, 300 or 600 points. It means you can make 33p for your 30 minutes at the best. Not to mention the time you are screened out.


I only recommend Global Opinion Panels to people who are interested in trying new products. From my experiences Global Opinion Panels is not a good choice to make money although they do pay cash.
