The survey bonuses can take up to 72 hours to appear. Please don't contact us before that!
If the bonus doesn’t appear after 72 hours we’ll need the following details:
What browser you're using to access the site.
The subject of the survey.
How many questions you answered.
Approximately what time you completed the survey.
How much bonus was offered.
If neither PMP nor Pollfish/Toluna/Cint has a record of your completed survey then we cannot be held liable. When completing surveys please make a note of your PMP bonus before you take part.
A note about getting screened out
There is nothing worse than being invited to a survey and then getting screened out after working on it for ten minutes. We're aware of this. In fact, it’s one of the biggest complaints people have about online surveys all over the net - not just on PMP.
The way survey sites work is that they need to get specific opinions from a specific group of people.
This 'group' is what survey sites refer to as a demographic.
Market research companies need very specific demographics to answer their surveys because that’s how they ensure that the answers are as accurate as possible. Since there is such a demand for market research and there are so many survey takers that could be invited, they tend to invite more people than they need. That way, the sites are ensuring that they have enough of the specific type of participants they need, even if it means that they have to weed through the not-so-right ones to get them.
In most cases, you simply may have been too late responding to your invitation, and your demographics have already been filled.
In other cases, you get screened out because your demographics just don’t match what that particular survey needs.
Disqualification is slightly different.
When a survey tells you that you didn’t qualify, it’s usually because something in the way you answered questions didn’t work.
In other words, it’s often (but not always) the result of user error. For example, you rushed through answering the questions or you didn’t read the instructions or questions thoroughly enough.
