IdeaShifters Review

IdeaShifters is a panel site operated by the market research provider Paradigm Sample. It’s a classic panel where you get paid in virtual currency in return for your contribution to market research projects, primarily online surveys. Once you have accumulated enough points, you can exchange our virtual points for a real reward.

How much can you make on IdeaShifters?

For every survey you fully complete, you will be rewarded with points. Points vary depending on the target group and the length of the survey. Typically, for a 10-minute survey, you will earn 10 points. Once you achieve 100 points, you redeem a gift card. At the time of writing 1 point equals $0.1 worth of gift-card coupons, which makes it easy to calculate how much you’ll earn after taking each survey.

Is it worth signing up?

A minimum redemption level of $10 is what you can expect from an average panel site today. In terms of payment per survey, you can expect 1-5 points, which equals to $0.10 – $0.50 in rewards. This means you’ll need to take at least 20 surveys until you’re able to enjoy your hard-earned reward. Also, keep in mind that you’ll get screened out of a lot of surveys, which means wasted time without getting paid. In our experience when taking surveys on IdeaShifters as much as two-thirds of all survey attempts ended in failure. Meaning, we did not fit the screening criteria of the survey.
