How much money can you make?

It is important that you know, survey sites, including GlobalTestMarket is not the way to go if you are looking for a way to make a monthly income, but it is a great way to make a little side money

The average time it takes to fill in a survey is about 15-20 minutes. All surveys have an estimated time, so you can know how long it will take before you even begin. There are guidelines to help you fill in the surveys faster. The time spent filling in the survey is a guideline to the rewards that will be earned.

There will not be as much day to day occasions to obtain rewards, seeing as GlobalTestMarket offers only surveys as a way to earn a little cash on the side. 


  • MarketPoints can be earned by referring friends and family. It is called Referral Points.
  • GlobalTestMarket has a dependable company behind it.
  • There is a numerous amount of surveys to fill in and it is very easy to use.
  • The use of PayPal for cash payments is a bonus.
  • GlobalTestMarket is available in countless countries.
  • Age limit of only 14.


  • You can only cash out when you have earned enough points equivalent to $50.
  • You need to qualify for a survey, to qualify you need to fill out a questionnaire which can take up to 20 minutes. Sometimes after spending the time to fill out the questionnaire, you do not qualify for the survey which means your time was wasted. You don’t get compensated for time spent filling out questionnaires.
  • It takes 4 to 6 weeks for a payment request to be processed.
  • The customer support is about average.

Bottom line...

There are a number of success stories, but there is also a numerous amount of reportedly unsatisfied customers that are unhappy with the services provided.

Unhappy users reported the following:

After completion of surveys they do not get their rewards because the quota is full, or the survey just shuts them out.

Some complain that it is just too slow, it is not paying enough or that they never receive their money.

Account get closed for no reason once they reach the minimum amount of points needed for a cash out.

The customer support is basically unreachable when you have a problem that needs immediate attention.

GTM is nice to use as an extra site to do a survey every once in a while. The site is reliable, but not my first choice. Unfortunately, it does not just take a couple of questions before you get rejected for a survey, it takes an entire questionnaire. If it had taken only a few questions I would increase my rating.

  1. Hi guys. I have been joining many survey sites in the past 3 months. So far, i've got $140 from 4 survey sites. I also joined GTM and just requested a payout last night, hopefully they will really pay me coz it is surely hard to get into 1216 points to redeem $50 paypal

  2. About the $140 ive got, $100 come from the most amazing survey site i joined so far. Its called Opinion World. Its amazing!! 1st, they only need 500 pts to cashout $10. 2nd, to get 500 pts is quite easy coz one survey usually gives us 80 pts (approx). 3rd, the points get credited straight away right after u finished te survey. 4th, u seldom get screened out n the survey is not as long as GTM. 5th, once u reach 500 pts, u can redeem straight away and in one second, the money is there in ur account. No need to wait for even 10 mins!!! So, just forget the GTM business, they r crap and move to OW!!

  3. It's an awful Market Research Site! Please don't use them! I have more than enough points to redeem and get my first £10 voucher for Amazon, but I have been told that I have to reach 1000 points first? This does NOT happen with the other legitimate sites! If I reach 1000 points I should by rights get 2 £10 vouchers (£20) with points left over. Feel well and truly shafted!! DON'T USE

  4. I redeemed my 1000 points in GTM on 20th March, 2014. Though I got a reply from them revealing the cheque would reach me within 8 weeks. On 10th week, I wrote to the GTM support group telling that I received nothing. To my surprise, I'm still unanswered and don't know what to do. Can anybody give an advise?

  5. I have been on the internet searching for ways i can make money and the research has been successful to say the least. There so many survey sites which you can earn money but most of them i found to be very disappointing whereby they pay pennies literally or you never qualify for any survey.
    They make you fill these forms answering questions then you’re told you don't qualify. I found 2 online sites that have worked quite remarkable for me. I have been able to pay bills, almost all of them using what i earned from them. You get paid to your PayPal account or MasterCard.
    The sites are these and use this links to sign up and you see for yourself. For anyone not trying to get rich but pay bills and have something extra in the pocket follow the above links signing up is free and start earning at your free time. You earn points by filling up surveys, watching videos, playing games of which you convert the points to cash.

  6. Global Test Market is a scam site. The CEO of my company received check of $50, but his check bounced. My wife never received the check. My wife installed a software Comtracker on her computer which was a chinese software and that software stole $4400 from my wife’s paypal account. We got the money back but Global Test Market is a scam site. It steals your money.

  7. Hi, My name is simran and i am a part of globaltestmarket since 2.5yrs and today i m unable to login .tried many time sbut still unable to login and not only me one of my friend is also not able to login he confirmed his email id ans passwrod and again tried to login but he is also not able to login please help.please help me as i have too many points in my account...please help me to login

    my email=
    GTM account number=25957156

  8. Don't waste time with GTM. I recently deleted my account because their "business model" seems to border on scam. While you do eventually get to cash out, it takes forever and as others have noted, they've increased the minimum points total to 1100 before you can cash out. I get screened out of most surveys (seems to happen more often as my points total gets closer to that 1100 mark!), and often I get "screened out" after I've already answered up to and over half of a survey's questions! Also, I've repeatedly had problems with getting to the end of a long, tedious survey, only to find that either the survey is suddenly and mysteriously "closed", or I just plain don't get credited for having completed it. And the so-called GTM support is horrible - they generally claim they have no record that I was even invited to a particular survey. (Yeah, I hacked into their system to take surveys because I was bored!) Again I advise "DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH GTM."

  9. I am unable to login today. I have done survey and got more than 1150 more points. I thought to reddem those points today, but I am not able to login. Why

    1. that is their scam they bann you and then write you a threatening letter saying you were not answering the way they want. they do this after signing up and surveys don't work I think they phish too be careful and protect your Ip or use a computer that is nothing you use personally. they need to be investigated

  10. I received my cheque in March 2015, which was bounced due to signature mismatch. After so many follow ups Till now I have not received my cheque till date. Now I received message that your payment is forfieted. Feeling disgusted and cheated by GlobalTestMarket. A big fraud survey company.

  11. Me, I redeemed 1100 for lazada ecert last December and I received it for 2 days only. now I am waiting for my second redemption for paypal

    1. Hi there did they gave you an ecert on your email? It's been a week and I still don't get mine

    2. @unknown have you received your ecert yet?

  12. those involved in this company have been written 970 930 and now to delete because I did complain! and I gave at the end then the same survey and now removed it is thugs liars thieves and robbers. who does not believe I have all the data to send me message to see the documents, attention is big cheaters !!!

  13. GMI recently changed to LifePoints. Each LifePoint is worth $0.0091 (yes, less than 1 penny). Here's a survey invitation from today (April 25th).

    Survey Number: 487767
    Time: 21 mins
    Reward for Survey Completion: 30 LifePoints

    30 LifePoints = $0.273

    So for 21 minutes of effort, they're going to pay you $0.273. This equates to $0.78 per hour.

    I refuse to participate in any surveys with less than 100 LifePoints. They are a waste of my time.

    I'm hoping other participants will jump on the bandwagon.

  14. Is anyone else having trouble logging in to the site. I cannot get in and have been a member for years.

  15. Recently they have changed their tactics (in addition to the poor $/hour).

    Even if you manage to complete a survey, their system crashes. When you file a support ticket, they tell you the survey is being audited, it may take 6 weeks, and you should assume that you failed to complete the survey if you haven't received the points. Here's the exact text from one of their responses:

    Thank you for your email. We apologize for the issue you experienced regarding this survey. However, please be assured, your concerns have been escalated to our Project Team and they are looking into them.

    Also, we have now requested that this study be audited. If you completed this study you will be credited once the audit has been completed. Please keep in mind this is a very time consuming process since it's done manually. If points are awarded, they will post to your account within the next 4-6 weeks.

    If the 6 weeks has passed and your account still hasn’t been credited, this means our Project Team determined that your participation in this study did not qualify to be awarded.
    Please understand, unfortunately, we will not have any additional information regarding your participation in this study until after the audit has been completed.

    For reference, I sent them jpgs of the my web browser showing the last question and the resulting error.

    Christene - you need to update your review and warn people to stay away from these morons.

  16. Absolute nightmare. Inundated with unwanted emails. Trying to unsubscribe without success. They keep saying my email address is invalid even though they keep sending emails to it.

    1. The same thing is happens to me I cant unsubscribe it doesn't recognise my email address but they keep texting me crap !

  17. REVIEW HAS BEEN UPDATED. Old and irrelevant comments removed.

  18. A lot of people wonder if you can really make money from home part time. the solution thereto question may be a definite affirmative. a fast truth, 20,000 folks per week begin a home business. the reality is, if you do not have a locality time home primarily based business albeit you're employed full time, you're going away cash on the table.
