Panda Research is a marketing agency that offers compensation for completing surveys and offers. Once you register with the company, you can access surveys that you can complete for payment. Payment for filling out surveys ranges from $1 to $75 per survey. In order to receive payment, you must understand the company's payment process and policy. This will save you much needed time, effort and frustration.
Set up a verified PayPal account. Panda Research sends payment for surveys using PayPal. If you do not have a PayPal account, you must register for one to get paid for your surveys. Once you set up the account, make sure it is "verified," meaning that you added a verified bank account.
Complete the required amount of surveys. In most cases, completing only a few surveys will not be adequate for payment processing. Panda Research requires that survey takers complete at least $50 worth of surveys before it will process a payment. The company processes payments in multiples of $50. For example, if you have $56.20 in your account, you would be eligible for a payment of $50. However, $6.20 would remain in your account until you complete more surveys and the balance again reached $50. There are no minimum and maximum quotas for the completion of surveys.
Make sure that your account stays active by maintaining a balance within any six-month period. If your account balance is $0 for more than six months, Panda Research may terminate your account.
Complete any offers that come attached to the surveys you're working on: for example, movie rental memberships, insurance service trials, product trials and any other offers. According to Panda Research policy, it's not enough to complete the survey portion of the assignment. The attached offer must also be completed before the survey counts for payment.
Once you've signed up for the offer, also complete the trial period associated with it. Many times you may see that your balance is for a certain amount; however, this does not mean that you will be paid that balance. You must complete the trial period before you will receive payment.
Request payment. Payment for surveys is not sent out automatically once your minimum balance is reached. According to company policy, payment must be requested online through your account. You will need to click the "Request Payment" button once you have logged on to your Panda Research account. A phone number will pop up on your screen for you to verify the payment request.
Call the verification number to complete your request. After a 30 day waiting period, Panda Research will send your payment on the 1st or 15th day of the month, with the exception of holidays and weekends. It's important to understand that Panda Research does not guarantee payment for surveys. According to the company's policy statement, there are several reasons why it may not pay for completed surveys and offers, including administrative failures, lack of appropriate information, improper sign-up, improper browser settings, errors in third-party reporting or any other reason.
Make sure that you are able to complete survey offers before signing up for them.
Some offers attached to surveys require payment or credit card information from the survey taker. These payments are nonrefundable and will not be reimbursed by Panda Research. Some offers are for trial periods and survey takers may be charged only after the trial period expires. If you decide to give credit card information for a trial period, make sure that you cancel the service before the trial period is over.
