How does it work?
Companies and organisations want to know what consumers think about their brand/service. They can do this by coming to us – The OpinionPanel Community, to hear our thoughts and opinions via online surveys or focus groups.
The OpinionPanel Community is broken down into 4 panels. Use the FAQ below to work out which one of four panels you should sign up to. If you’re 16 – 30, we have a panel for you!
Once you’ve signed up on the site, you’ll be sent an invitation to complete a quiz to tell us more about you. This allow us to send research surveys directly relevant to you.
After this fun and easy quiz is complete, you’re all signed up! We’ll start sending you email invites to take part in research, offering £1 – £2 each. And you’ll get your vouchers at the end of ever week, whether you earn £1 or £10! If you’re a Student, you will earn £10 just for signing up, and your voucher will be sent to you once you reach £25 (that takes a maximum of 15 surveys).
If you don’t fit the bill for a survey and get screened-out, we’ll enter you into our monthly prize draw to win a Kindle - not bad, eh?
We’re proud to be the UK’s largest research service of its kind and it couldn’t be easier to join. There’s no spam, no selling, you can do as many surveys as you like, it’s completely safe (we’re a certified MRS company partner) and best of all… IT’S FREE!
Which panel do I belong to?
We want to make sure our members are sent relevant surveys, so we have divided The OpinionPanel Community into four panels. If you’re aged 16-30 or in Higher Education, one will be right for you.
The Youth Panel – for anyone aged 16 – 30/ at school or sixth form/ thinking about applying to study at uni.
The Applicant panel - for anyone who has submitted their UCAS application to study at a UK university.
The Student Panel – for undergrads at a UK uni or HEI
The Graduate Panel – for graduates from a UK uni, living in The UK

What makes The OpinionPanel Community different?
Apart from our research regularly making the headlines, excellent support service and generous rewards, we have an amazing online community where our members (which happens to including some very talented writers) can submit and share articles. Not only do we provide a platform for young people to get their voice heard and to spark debate, but the Article of the Month wins £50!
What is a focus group?
You may be invited to attend online or face-to-face focus groups. This is where you will be asked to participate in a discussion with a group of other people, about a product or idea. Click here to find out more.
What do I get for completing a survey?
Students and graduates collect points towards a £25 Amazon gift voucher, which can be redeemed on Amazon and used to buy absolutely anything! Those on other panels earn BonusBond vouchers, which are paper vouchers that get sent straight to your door and can be used in a wide variety of shops.
How much you get completely depends on the survey… Generally speaking you’ll be awarded 1 – 2 points per survey. But to keep things fair, you’ll get more points for longer surveys.
Is this a scam?
No, we’re a real company based in Islington (28-30 Worship Street, London, EC2A 2AH) and we recently celebrated our 10th birthday! We’ve worked for loads of huge brands and universities and spend hundreds of thousands of pounds to reward our hard working panellists. If you’re still unsure, feel free to check out our reviews on the bottom right hand corner of the screen or our Twitter a sneek peak! Or, give us a call on 020 7288 8789 and we’ll be more than happy to answer any other questions you have.
How does The OpinionPanel Community make its money?
Aside from our obvious talent for basket-weaving, we are hired by companies to conduct research on their behalf on any topic that they are particularly interested in. In the past we’ve worked with some pretty big names and we also work with most universities.
Do I have to pay anything?
No, we will never ask for any payment details – signing up and completing surveys is completely free… we pay YOU for your opinions! Also, you are free to join and leave anytime you wish and free to complete only those surveys you are interested in filling. You’re totally in control of your membership.
How do I join?
Will you send me spam or sell my data?
No and no! We have a no spam guarantee – we don’t carry any advertising on our site and will never try to sell you anything.
Also, we will never pass any of your details to anyone, not even our clients. We are a MRS certified agency.
How often will you send me surveys?
This depends on many things – we don’t invite all panellists to complete every survey. Instead we use a sampling method where we select the required number of panellists based on their demographic profile (e.g. gender, year of study, course subject etc.). This makes our surveys representative of the population but also means it is difficult to predict just how often you will be contacted. We endeavour to contact everyone fairly and we’re running more and more surveys all the time!
Where are the surveys?
How do I earn points?
You will get points for completing surveys. When you finish a survey the final page will let you know what your new points total is.
