International Opportunities

No longer restricted to U.S. residents; now people worldwide can get paid for completing surveys and other market research work. The companies listed on this page are mainly looking for residents from any country, but some are more restrictive. Please note that being included on a panel does not guarantee a company will have surveys to fit all demographics.

Before joining any of the programs, consider getting yourself a separate e-mail address. Many companies offer free services, so you don't need to rely on hotmail with their junk mail problems. My own personal recommendation is GMX (Global Mail Exchange), used by more than 11 million Internet users, which offers 5 GB e-mail storage and attachments up to 50MB and mailboxes which are protected from spam with seven anti-spam modules.

I'd also recommend you download a copy of Roboform. This free software can be used for auto-filling registration forms greatly simplifying the application process for the survey companies you'll be joining. In addition it can also remember all the passwords for each of the sites you join. Find out more from Roboform.

If you want to be informed whenever anything is added to this page, just add your e-mail address in the box. Your address will not be used for any other purposes.

GlobalTestMarket has a very active survey division and requires participants worldwide over the age of 14. The views of those under 14 may be sought but the invitation will go to the parent for the child to complete.

You earn "marketpoints" each time you respond to a survey request - the closer you fit the demographics for the survey, the higher the points earned but you'll always earn 2 or 3 even if you don't qualify at all. A typical survey of 30 questions that takes approximately 12 minutes to complete will earn 60 to 80 MarketPoints. You can also earn extra points when you refer others. Each point is worth $0.05 and you need 1000 points to qualify for payment by check.

They seem to be fairly active. I'm receiving at least 2 or 3 surveys every week at present.

Currently actively recruiting in the following countries:

Whilst not actively recruiting elsewhere, it is still available worldwide so everyone else should visit GlobalTestMarket International

  Test and Vote

Test&Vote (also known as Toluna in some countries) is slightly different from other survey sites I've come across in that you don't have to rely on getting invitations for completing surveys, but have several other ways of earning points or getting free items.

  • Registration earns you 1,500 points
  • Quick votes, each time you take part earns you 15 points (there are always loads of these on the site so visit regularly. They take a matter of seconds to complete.)
  • Product testing, registering for each trial earns you 75 points even if you're not selected to take part
  • Surveys earn you between 3,000 and 30,000 points
  • Referring a friend, for each person who joins Test&Vote because of you, you will earn 500 points
  • Subject panels - complete these to get 500 points per subject.

You can either exchange your points for a range of vouchers or use them to buy tickets in the monthly lottery where you could win cash prizes.

Available in the following countries:


MyTNS.com offers you the chance to participate in online research and earn points exchangeable for vouchers or in the case of the UK, Nectar Points. I receive regular surveys to complete and even when you don't qualify you still earn a small number of points. They are one of the best sites when it comes to longer duration surveys (eg a few minutes once a week for a month or every day for a week) which pay pretty well and for product trials.

Available to UK residents and also residents of Switzerland, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, USA and Canada, although different rewards apply for each country.

Take Surveys - Get Rewards

qSample work directly with the market research companies. Their QuestionPro Survey Software is used by over 2000 companies worldwide to conduct online surveys.

They believe that everyone spending their time should be compensated - not one lucky winner. Hence they've structured this program such that the clients pay everyone who take the surveys. That's how they guarantee that you'll get paid. When you receive an invitation to take a survey, the compensation amount will be clearly noted on the email invitation. Expect to get paid anywhere between $1 to $15 per survey, through PayPal. Note that in some cases the clients insist that they use a prize or give-away. In such cases, there will still be a per/completion payout, although it will be nominal - between $.10 to $1, and you'll be entered in to the grand prize.

qSample is not a survey review site. They do not pass your data outside their network. They do not share your information with others, not even with their clients.

You can refer friends to signup with qSample, and earn more cash. For every survey that your friends complete, you get an additional 5% of their incentive. Furthermore, if your friends refer other people, you get 1% of that too.

No matter which country you are from, if someone is conducting market research there, they need you!

     American Consumer Opinion

    Contrary to appearances suggested by the name, American Consumer Opinion is made up of consumers worldwide who have agreed to participate in surveys over the Internet. Occasionally, these consumers are asked to participate in mail surveys or telephone surveys, but generally the surveys are all conducted over the Internet.

    As a panel member, you will participate in several surveys a year, typically. The average survey will take 10 minutes or so to complete, and the questions are usually easy to answer.

    Panel members can expect to receive a "screener" (a short questionnaire) every six weeks or so.

    All registered members participate in a monthly drawing to win $250 in cash awards, just for being a member.

    If you answer a screener (a short questionnaire), you will be entered into a drawing for cash awards and when you participate in a survey (a longer questionnaire), you will always receive some type of incentive in the form of a free product to test, cash, a check, or a gift.

    Incentives typically range in value from $4 to $25, per survey, depending upon the length of the questionnaire and the time it takes to complete it. If a survey is extra long, then the award could be $25 or more. Participants in online focus groups generally receive more than $25.

    I've received many payments from this company

     MBS Internet Research Center

    The MBS Internet Research Center is looking for people who are willing to participate in surveys and focus groups over the web. Many of their customers are willing to pay incentives in the form of cash, prizes, and drawings for your opinions.

    Incentives for online surveys are usually in the form of cash, product samples and/or gift certificates. The type and amount of incentive are based on the type and size of survey and the respondent profile required by the contract and can vary from $2-$10 or more. Sometimes, surveys offer no incentive at all and sometimes you are entered into major drawings. In the case of review surveys, you may be allowed to keep product samples. Payment is based on the submission of a completely answered, requested survey form You are never obligated to participate.

    Incentives for focus groups tend to be much higher than for surveys, but do not occur as frequently. Focus groups require you to have access to the Internet for 1 - 1½ hours of your time and a Java-capable web browser. All you have to do is go to a website that they will provide you with at the time of the focus group and participate in the discussion.
