I completed a survey on a making money website. I get halfway through the survey, I thought I had completed it. Then the page says "sorry you did not qualify". Are you serious? I spend about 10 to 15 minutes on that survey all for 35 cent! You mean to tell me that I am not even going to that 35 cent? I am about done with surveys! I have had it! It's not worth my time!

Hi, This has been happening with me quite often but since I am close to payout.The site I am referring to is a much-reputed one- Globaltestmarket.This was not so common earlier but now it is increasingly happening that when I am more than halfway through the survey suddenly they say I am not qualified! To avoid this I have signed up on other survey sites where thankfully the case is not so. I earn daily from other survey sites but as soon as I reach payout this time on Global I will stop using it.They are up to too many tricks! I know how frustrating it is friend.

I am glad you have found good survey websites. I am also glad to hear that you are close to payout. I hate being half way to payout and getting stuck. That sucks. Hope you can cash out soon and get your money.

Hi, Previously I have got two payments from Global so I am sure that they will pay this time too.Just that the process of screening out members after a certain portion of the survey has been taken is unforgivable.

o2bnocn I have also done the same thing with most surveys so I fou nd one that does qu alify you and with 1150 points you can turn them in for ten dollars. I am just within in 50 points of getting ten dollars again. they are really interesting surveys about new products not yet out on the market, your input can change the looks of the product or the cost or even the ingredients of the product. its fun and very enlightening plus ten dollars is a nice round figure of money.

I just have surveys and I am just glad that I have never been inclined to even try it. They are a waste of time and only beginners who try to earn money online does surveys now a days. I don't think anybody ever earn well with surveys..

Thats exactly the case with me as well. Infact, I have never completed any survey. I always get stuck with the problem you mentioned. Else, halfway, they say that this survey is not available in your region. Its not at all done. I have stopped giving surveys now. It is really very irritating when this happens.

I have completed a few surveys here and there. It just isn't worth it to me anymore. I have tried it many times and it is a waste of time.

I do not like surveys. This happens to me too most of the times. They do offer more money than other online earnings but most of the time i get screened out.

Yes , sometimes the same happens with me.Actually at the beginning they start asking questions for the survey just to check whether we are eligible or not, but the main survey questions starts after validating that we are eligible. And sometimes we think the beginning questions are the part of the survey but they are not.

Yes most of the surveys are just too long. I don't like them anymore at all. I don't believe it is worth it anymore.

hey This situation happened with me and I understand your frustration. We spend a long time to do this survey thing and earn some cents and we almost done the send to us this stupid message..If we are not qualify for that why do they let us keep going answering?? It is annoying and I know that feeling.

Yes I almost feel as if they are taking advantage of us. I already believe they don't pay enough for the surveys, especially the really long one. I think they can afford to pay people more than a couple of cents. Then they want us to answer 25 questions and oh half way through they realize we aren't qualified? I'm sorry what makes me not qualified for it? I wouldn't mind answering a few questions then they said I wasn't qualified. I thought they wanted our opinions. It almost seems like they have us answer questions to get our opinions and then say oh well your not qualified. Just doesn't seem worth it anymore. I will participate in other websites from now on, not survey sites.

I hate those too that's why I completely stopped answering paid surveys. After that, expect to get some spam emails!

I hate when that happens! I don't like to get told I didn't qualify to begin with, let alone after answering tons of questions. I've even had some where they asked me so many it kind of seemed like I answered what they needed and then they just told me that I didn't qualify so I didn't get paid for it. I've found some really good sites I'm sticking with though.

That is how I felt when that happened. I am done with surveys. I have found other ways to make money online that are better. I hate how long the surveys take from the beginning. Then they small a small amount of money. I am starting to think that it really is a waste of time. I answered a bunch of questions, and I thought I was done with the survey so I was surprised to see that it said that I did not qualify for it.

I know what you mean! It seems like almost every time I do surveys I get that you don't qualify thing. I have tried over the years and always got it. Then I give up for a while, and try again just to see if I have any luck. I have tried again recently, still no luck, so I am probably not gonna try much more.
