Global Test Market


Global Test Market ( is a fairly established online market research panel. They have participants from nearly 200 countries contributing opinions in return for cash rewards. Over the years they have maintained a solid reputation and have an impressive, 5 million plus, membership.

Similar to other survey companies Global Test Market will send survey invitations to your email box. This is why it’s important to use a valid email address when you register with them. Upon completion of a survey you’ll be rewarded with market points which can later be redeemed for cash.

At the current exchange rate 1,000 points will earn you fifty US dollars which is also the minimum cash out level. The good thing about Global Test Market is that they reward loyalty and the more surveys you complete the more points per survey you will get.

The company pays out by checks in US dollars, this can be a slight inconvenience for non US residents, but nothing too serious. After reaching the appropriate level and requesting payment it can take up to two months to receive your check.

So far I haven’t received any complaints regarding non-payment issues from Global Test Market members. The only downside is that it can take several months to reach the fifty dollar minimum cash out point. So I would recommend using this company in conjunction with another income stream.

  • I had 1000 points, and requested a cheque. After about 3 weeks i got an email there had been an error, so i mistakenly got double points. the cheque would be canceled and the points put back into the account. Several weeks later i did not get the cheque nor the points
  • I have been a member with this panel for a long time now and for awhile it was a good panel to be in. Then out of the blue I was no longer able to log in. I tried for days and couldn't. I emailed them and was told that I was kicked out because I had more than one account. I do not know where they got that. I only have one account. I had just requested my $50.00 and think this was a way for them to not pay me. They said my account had been froze and I would not get my money that I had worked hard to earn for almost a year. I am very angry with this company. They are a fraud. They out right lied when they said I had a double account. There is not way under the sun that this is true. Is there anything, I can do about this?
  • Been with GTM for nearly 3 years now. I have never experienced any of the problems listed by the people below.

    The frequency of my survey invites remain constant no matter how many points are in my account. I have always received my payment within 4 to 6 weeks as GTM promises.

    Now they have had some technical issues with their website and surveys from time to time, but GTM always sends an email notice explaining the problem, and sometimes awards bonus points for the inconvenience.

    I to do not qualify for every survey, but they still award points if you do not qualify. Every other survey company just offers a sweepstakes entry when you do not qualify. GTM all the way!
  • I can relate to a lot of the gripes i read here about global. I've been a member for a few years. But i have to say when it comes to cashing in, I have never had a problem getting my cheque in the time frame they say. Comes like clockwork. But as far as getting well into a survey and only to be told, YOU DONT QUALIFY..makes me very angry. Total waste of time. Also, yes i agree, you get close to 1000 cash in points and pffft no more surveys forever. But i wait. Sooner or later one comes that im qualified for. I've made 3 or 400 dollars from this site, and i figure its worth the hassle. (so far) One point, and i dont know if this makes a difference or not but i always cash in soon as i hit a 50 dollar payout.
  • I have been participating with them for about 8 or 9 months. It's annoying b/c I keep getting the same surveys that told me I don't qualify, so then I don't get any additional points. Though sometimes they'll give me 5 points for trying. I am doing a little research to find out if I should keep doing this! Thanks everyone.
  • GTM is the best. Been a member for over 2 years and have cashed out every 2 months for a total of around $1,200. Visit the blog and see they are legit. They are the only survey company that provides updates like they do on the blog.
  • I have been a member for several years and have cashed in several times. Yes it did take awhile to get the cash but the last time it was June. Now recently I had enough points to cash in (1035). I got a confirmation letter and then weird stuff started to happen. All of a sudden I had 925 points then 50 points then 900 points then 25 points...sometimes all in the same day! I contacted the company three times so far. I get an immediate response saying that I will be contacted within two days. Then I get a grammatically incorrect standard response that they are looking in to it signed by various people with Russian sounding names. It has now been over 6 weeks since I cashed in and I am angry!
  • I have been using GTM for over a year, and have managed to earn $150 (£75 GBP). Compared to many other websites, this one sends you invitations regularly, with acceptable rewards and, generally, I have no problem with them.

    On the other hand however, when it comes to surveys being cut short at the end, resulting in no reward, I have had MANY experiences of this happening. This has occurred at least 15-20 times within the last 6 months, and most of which have taken 20-30 (sometimes even 45 or more!) minutes to complete.

    When I contact GTM about this, I either receive a generic response (the usual... "there must a problem with your internet connection", or " you used the forward/back button on your browser, which resulted in the survey being interrupted" - none of which are true), or you receive no reply at all. They will completely ignore you almost every time you contact them, so you're even lucky to get a response at all.

    They have cheated me out of at least $50 in the last 6 months alone which is completely unacceptable and fraudulent (they always ensure they have enough information to submit to the companies employing them, then terminate the survey claiming that there was a technical error, so they can get away with not paying you.)

    I am currently in need of as much extra cash as possible (as I'm sure many people taking part in surveys are), so I am reluctant to cancel my account, and it's this very fact that GTM will play on. They must remember that without us they wouldn't have a business at all, however whilst there are people willing to put up with it, they will carry on as they are.
  • Please do not accumulate your points for a bigger cash out. In May, I redeemed 8000 points (400 USD) and right after that I stopped receiving surveys. After a few failed communications with them, I posted message on their blog. They replied to me saying that my account was closed due to quality strikes and that they were not bound to disclose the exact reason for quality strike. I have been a member of GTM for three years now and it's really upsetting to think that they closed my account just because I requested for a large amount of reward at a time.
  • I've been with Global Test Market for some time now and I haven't qualified for a lot of the surveys that they've sent me. It could just be because of the way I completed my personal profile. At this rate it might take a year to get enough points to cash out, but, it's still fun and easy money. If you're into survey sites, this is a decent one.
