Questions about OpinionWorld

It's very easy. Simply fill in your details on our sign-up page. We'll send you a link to the application form so you are able to confirm your membership. If you are 17 or younger, ask your parent or guardian to apply on your behalf and become a member and you can take part in the surveys via them. 

No, unfortunately membership of this online panel is open only to New Zealand residents.
There are no costs associated with joining the panel and you can leave at any time. You do however, need an email address to receive invitations to participate in surveys and you need to be able to access the Internet to complete online surveys.
We will send you an email welcoming you to OpinionWorld. After that, we'll contact you periodically by email to invite you to take part in surveys. The email will contain all the information you need to participate. Once you complete a survey you'll have the opportunity to earn points, and to be entered into our quarterly prize draw.
Profiles are sets of questions that allow us to learn more about you, your preferences, purchases and daily habits. We then evaluate this information and determine your qualification for surveys. Topics vary and include general questions about profession, electronics, household, travel, beauty and more. However, we can't guarantee participation should you complete all your profile surveys as qualification depends on the responses you provide per study.
Please make sure there are no blank spaces before or after you entered your email address or password. If you forget your password, please click on the 'Forgot password?' link on the homepage and enter your email address. Our system will send you a reminder for your password to help you log-in. If you still can't log-in, please submit a question at the upper right hand section of this page and our Support Team will gladly assist you.

Questions about Surveys

Businesses, governments, public bodies and similar organisations are interested in the views and attitudes of the people who use their products and services. The more they know about what customers and potential customers, citizens and consumers think, the easier it is for them to improve and adapt what they supply.
We are regularly sending out survey invitations, but cannot say who or when any member will receive invitations as each of our surveys is customised and based around the research goals for each individual client. Depending on your profile, we may ask you to complete surveys more or less often than once per month. For this reason, we ask you to keep your profile as up to date as possible. Please note some firewalls may prevent delivery of our survey invitations.
The number of questions varies from one survey to another. We try to keep surveys as enjoyable as possible, although we have to make sure the results are meaningful. In general a survey ranges from 10 to 40 minutes. Generally speaking, the longer the survey the more points it should offer. From time to time we run special projects for clients where the survey might be one or two hours and these are paid at a much higher level.
Each time you complete a client survey (these are different to profile surveys), you are rewarded with points which you can use to redeem for any of our existing reward options once the required minimum is reached.  Aside from getting points, you also get an entry to our quarterly cash prize draw. Whilst profile surveys do not offer points, they will help you receive more survey opportunities.
