I am a member of this website for a long time and I have got my payment from it several times. It is a legal earning website. It is a survey website. You earn the points by finishing the surveys. And when it's up to 1000 points, then you can reqest for your payment. But you have to wait for it for some time since it pays by your by check. It will you the check. I love China

Sounds like you received a great deal of advise, and from what I can see it is a legit survey site, but it will take a long time to reach payout. It also appears that when you do cash out it will take a very long time to be paid. I am not a member there and all I can say, because I use other sites, geared towards US members that if it were me it would not be worth my time. From what I researched on it sounds like you will be doing 3/4 of survey's most of the time to find later you do not qualify. So looks like this one is not going to be good for you to join.

Hi, globaltestmarket is a survey website, i am also the member of this site since 3 months and in 3 months i receive only 1 survey of 5 points and they pay 50$ on 500 points, in 3 months i earn only 5 points so imagine how many months require to collect 500 points, actually they sent their surveys only for specific countries specially in USA, so the members which are not from USA, earn very much slow from this site.it is legal not a scam but people from specific countries are earn from this site.

@sameer, The payout is for 1000 points. We get 50$ when we reach 1000 points. I got my check just two weeks before.

No, but like other said, the earning was law cause the survey are not as much as others survey site. But, I believe you got more survey cause you are from US if I see your avatar. You also can try surveihead, aip, ipanel, etc. They are legit survey site so far.

Hi there, I've been a member of globaltestmarket for quite some time and have had several payouts. As far as I'm concerned, the points are getting harder and harder to accumulate. I just tried to complete a survey a few minutes ago and after spending several minutes answering introductory questions, I was told I didn't qualify. That happens to me frequently. I'm trying to reach another payout although I only have around 300 points but at this rate it will take a very long time. I wouldn't call it a scam but but you have to be very patient if you want to earn on this site.

One thing that I have not been doing on that site is update my profiles regularly. They say that if you do that, you're more likely to get surveys that you qualify for and can complete for points. Maybe I should try doing that and see what happens. It can't hurt. Just a thought.

well as many have said, it's legit but it's really slow especially for those in asian countries. i am a member too and finally received my payout after like 3 years. hehe i think it's a little more even. you might wonder how i managed to continue for so long, well it's basically surveys that they send via mail and since a survey doesn't come for so long, i tend to forgot about it. but when it does come after a few months, i remember and it doesn't make much difference if i do it or not, and since it doesn't take up too much of my time, i complete it. i don't qualify usually but as someone said, i still get 5 points at least so that encourages. as they say, a few drops make an ocean...or something like that hehehe so i keep that up and suddenly i'm at around 900 points when i receive a survey so i'm really motivated. after finally receiving my payout, i realise that i'm getting surveys more often than before. it's not much but definitely more. i received my payout a few months earlier and now, i'm already at 500 points plus. so even if this is not an income or anything, it is still a little something of my hard work and i'm very satisfied that it's paying off.

Ouch! It's only cheers. Do you get paid from the site. That is a legitimate one and if you reside in the US, you are able to make more surveys

Hi sweetie. Global test market is a legit survey site. You have a point system which you work with. If you reach a certain amount of points you get paid. No scam at all. TATA.

I am a member of global test market too. They are definitely not a scam. I have been paid by them before. It is a survey site. I have to say though that it took me forever to reach payout since you need to have $50 in your account in order to cashout.
• India

it takes so much time to reach $50...

its very difficult to reach the 1000 point mark.And in review i had come across a member saying after he got to the 1000point mark and requested a payout,his account was disabled.Although he did not specify the reason.

I am member of this site and wiating to reach minimum payment. I have no idea if this is another scam, if anyone is sure of it please broadcast it to the group. I get 1-2 survey every month and that is again just 35-40 points, earning is very slow. Thank You for sharing.

I have been with GlobalTestMarket for quite a few years now and as far as I can say they are not scam! I always got paid I just got a 100 dollars from them before Christmas! The more surveys you do the more you earn.

Of course you can refer people to this site and probably earn more...but I Am just happy doing surveys.

I gave up on the site. I almost never qualified for surveys. The pay out for the few surveys I did complete were laughable(4cents for a 25 mintues survey). Most of the other survey sites I have found have a better qualifying rate, closer to 50%, and the normal payout is about a dollar for the time you spend.

many times we don't get full points just simply we get 5points, thats a major disappointing thing

$150 in checks from them in 2010 says its a legit site. The amount of surveys you will get depends on your profile and also on your location. They pay in local currency and can assure you they are amazing!

yes, they will pay in our local currency..

Hi there rameshchow, I haven't heard any one has been paid by this global test market. I am a member of this site also, but really! It take some time before you will reach the market points. There's a few surveys and some times it doesn't appear how much did they pay me. Try a lot of site that no need any investment. I have no doubt on the site, but If you are up to good earnings you can check out other legite site that are really paying with proofs and pay as early as possible. Well, good luck my friend and happy mylotting! happy new year!

I earn there all the time but I am a U.S. user. I am not sure how many surveys Indian users would get. It all depends on what they are offering in your area.

You can see what SurveyPolice say here: http://www.surveypolice.com/globaltestmarket At least one "respected and popular consumer complaints website" thinks it is: http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/global-test-market-c79872.html

no the site is legit i received many checks from globaltestmarket so it is a legit survey site naturally the process is a bit uncomfortable in relation to other survey sites because it takes time before joining the 1000 points and also not really fast when you waiting the check but in the end they will pay you don't mind...
• India

Yes it definitely is legit. The good things about it is that even if you are screened out, you'll still be rewarded 5 points. No other survey site does so. It has been known to pay and many have been paid, i.e., received cheques from them. One such recent example is here: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2704517.aspx Good day!

Global test market is a legit site. I earn slow because of my area of residence. there are only a few surveys that get sent to me because of my country. Anyway, you should really try the website. It is ok for me :)

Good day rameshchow, No globaltestmarket.com is not a scam site. I have been a member with them for a few years now and I am slowly starting to earn with them. It just takes time but once you start they send more surveys and it goes a little quicker. I am able to cash out with them about 3 times a year. The minimum cash out amount for Canadians, I say this because some survey sites have different amounts depending where you live, is $50 or 1000 points. So I am able to cash out about $150 a year from them. I find that survey sites have gotten better over the last two years. I used to get only surveys that put my name in a draw but what are the chances of winning a draw. For example, globaltestmarket has 5.5 million members so your chances of winning are just as bad as your chances of winning a lottery. Now I don't get very many surveys for draws and more surveys that pay money. I think they have learned that people don't want draw surveys and so they pay everyone for doing them now but that is why they are for such small amounts. They only get so much money for doing these surveys so they have to share that money among a lot of members. So it is understandable that is takes time to earn the cash out amount. I do mostly surveys only now and I am earning about $100 a month doing them. I just pass up the draw ones as I get enough of the money paying ones to keep me busy. I receive about 10 survey invitations a day and qualify for about 8 of them. Cheers and happy mylotting my friend , chris
