I have been on this site for years and always got payment but since feburary I am asking them my dues and they never paid. All they said was we issued check and it must be lost. So they said they send check on my registered adress twice now they asked for new address which I gave them. Well two months now, no Check there too. I asked them to pay by paypal they say no and to top it they said we issued check 3 times now company policy that they would confesticate the money as we issued check three times. No details of check were given to me. Also when I always got payment from them on this adress then why would I have problem this time too and that too twice?

Everything has change and they might be implement that to try something else. It might a testing who are members that have legitimate address and other relevant information.

Remember I have already been paid on this adress few times so that is not the problem. The problem is that they say we would issue only 3 times and then forfit your money.

That's really weird if that is the case. If that maybe the case, that is unacceptable because they are not fair enough!

Perhaps you have a different address listed on your account? I have been paid by them and still currently using them albeit not that often due to a lack of time to really advance and spend time doing surveys. Perhaps ask what can be done to ensure payment as they are very large and no reason to fraud anyone.

I thought so but unfortunately they have paid me few times on this address already and I never changed it in my account. Also they being rude that they forfit all earnings made me think about they turning scam. Also they could have sent it by pay pal when check is not working.

Global Test Market clearly state that they ONLY pay by check. They do NOT use PayPal, so that is not an option: http://www.globaltestmarket.com/help.php#5h As TeamCholent says, Global Test Market are a large and well-respected company. I am sure that if they say that they have sent checks then they have done so. If you have not received them, it is more likely to be a problem with your postal system than with Global Test Market.

Hi, I am to say that there is nothing wrong about this site and perhaps this is the best one available for free to join and get paid cash from my experience of more tha six years.I am working with them already redeemed twice and nearing a third one.you can view the check I received in my second redeem.May be some problem is there with your profile address..or something please do contact them they have a very good support I can vouch for it because of my recent experience when the sign made in the check was questioned by my bank I wrote to them and they said if the bank is not accepting it I can send back the check and they will issue another one to me..which generally not seen working online with many programs.so I am sure there is certainly some problem some where.Another thing I am to say that you can redeem when you have accumulated at least 1000 points that means around $50 and you have to make a request from the site logging in...so please do recheck and retry..good luck

I have been a member of Globaltestmarket for a long time and I have got payment from them for several times. I also agree that it is inconvenient that they don't pay by Paypal. It is troublesome for me to get my money from the check since the banks are stupid here. In fact few months ago they shall arrange to send me the check but I haven't got it yet. Even though, I don't think they are scams because I know that they still have a branch in China. If they are scams, then this branch shall be gone. It must be something wrong for the check to you on the way. Did you try to offer them another address?

It has been a good year or so since I completed a survey with them. They have just seemed to go downhill over the last few years. Had not been getting as much payment while other places were still doing alright, so I stopped with them. I do notice a lot of other survey sites redeirect you to take a survey hosted by them, so it seems they have went 3rd party for payment. Perhaps that is some of the issue.

Hi friend, sad to hear about your experience with this site. My wife is also a member there and attended some surveys from this site, but now she is not active there. It is really hard to get frequent surveys from them, so she give up that site. Wish you to get your payment soon

I am also a member and cashed out this past September. Two years ao I hasa similar problem with receiving my check. I emailed them and they explained that they had to wait so many days then t hey would reissue my check. Messed up my holiday budget ur I eventually got it. This past year no problems. I am a resident of the USA. Good luck.
