Is PanelOpinion a legit survey site?

PanelOpinion is a member of Fair Data and a Market Research Society (MRS) Company Partner bound by the MRS conduct.

Data Privacy: Any reason for concern?
MIS Group, a company specialising in marketing studies and the creation of consumer panels, is the publisher of this site. MIS is responsible for the processing of personal information collected.

How to get started
Available on mobile devices, you can register on the PanelOpinion website. Enter your email and password and confirm them within 48 hours by clicking on the link you received by email. Then create your PanelOpinion account. Registration is free, provided you are at least 18 years of age, as you will use PayPal as a payment getaway. To join PanelOpinion, you need to live in the UK and use your UK phone number when you sign up. But if you go to the site and you come from Europe or the US, you will be asked if you want to join their panel in those countries as they have partner panels there. PanelOpinion promises a sign-up bonus of 10 pounds for everyone who creates an account on their website.
What about the survey experience?
PanelOpinion has a mobile app you can download to your mobile device to answer the surveys anywhere. The mobile app is available for both Android and iOS users. This survey panel is straightforward. During your first log to the site, you will be offered a mandatory profile survey which will be the basis for qualifying you for future survey offers.
How much can you make on PanelOpinion?
You are going to be paid £0.50 per survey. The more surveys you qualify for, the more surveys you will be able to complete and be paid for. Once you reach the payout threshold of £10, you will be able to request payment in three different ways:
- You can withdraw your earnings via direct bank transfer (BACS).
- You can request a check in the post which will arrive within 15 days.
- You can withdraw your earnings via PayPal.
You will not earn cash for the referral program but will have you entitled to an entry to their weekly raffle draw.
What can prevent me from cashing out?
To be able to cash out, make sure you accumulate enough credits. PanelOpinion wants all its members to exercise due diligence and honesty when answering the surveys. Like other survey sites, it also has checks to ensure that your answers will not fail and result in your submissions being rejected. Creating multiple accounts to make more money is prohibited; you can be banned, and your earnings accumulate in your account forfeited.
