M3 Panel is a paid survey site for people living in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, or Finland.
But is M3 Panel legit and really a great and easy way to make money by taking surveys, or is it a scam to stay away from?
Most other survey sites I review on this website are covering more and bigger countries, but as I am from Scandinavia myself and have tested M3 Panel extensively (it was actually the first survey site I joined), I have decided to also make a review of it here.
Hopefully, people from Scandinavia will also be here on my website:-) – or if you know someone from that area that could be interested, you are welcome to share with them.
Anyways, let's get started and go over all the pros and cons of M3 Panel, so you will know exactly what to expect and can easily find out if this is the right opportunity for you or not.
What is M3 Panel, and what opportunities does the site offer?
M3 Panel has several paid surveys a week. Sometimes they even have several a day. You will receive an email every time there is an available survey, so you do not have to go to the website itself unless you want to request a payout.
If you click an invitation for a survey, and it turns out you do not qualify for it anyway, you will still get a small number of points for trying. I personally really like it when survey sites offer this, so you know that you will never click a survey without getting compensation for it.
However, it can sometimes take a bit of patience to find the surveys you qualify for, so do not be surprised if there are several surveys in a row you do not qualify for.
You will be able to do some surveys on your phone or tablet. Others will only be possible to do on a computer. It depends on the format and content of the survey.
When you get an invitation for a survey, it will say if it is not possible to do it on your phone or tablet. But very often you can, so it is possible to do many of the surveys on the go.
The site is free to join and free to use.
How does M3 Panel pay?
Every time you do a survey, you will earn points. These points can be exchanged for vouchers, entries into lotteries, donated to charity, or different products (large selection to choose from).
The lotteries are M3 Panel's own lottery, and the prizes vary. It can, for example, be a trip to go to a Premier League soccer game in England, or a trip to Formula 1 in Monaco.
M3 Panel does, at the moment, not offer the possibility to get paid in cash. A shame if you ask me, but on the other hand, you can instead get vouchers for a number of different supermarkets, shops, and websites, which is as good as money. And I know the vouchers work – I have used several of them myself.
How much the points are worth in cash can differ a bit depending on your country, but a 1000 points will be worth around the equivalent of $7-8 (the currency will be in your local currency).
When you can request a reward, depends on which reward you want. You can get entries into the lottery for 50 points, whereas vouchers are around 2000 points, and products are available from around 1000 points and up to several thousands.
You can make enough points right away to be able to get some products or be close to getting a voucher. You get these “starting” points by filling out a number of short profile surveys (you can make around 1000 points like this as soon as you log in).
You find these profile surveys by logging in to M3 panel. This is to get a bit of information about you, so you can be matched better with available surveys. But as mentioned, you will also get points for these.
When you receive an email invitation for a survey, it will say how many points you can make. It will always say from 25 to the amount you can make the most (somewhere between 25-500 points per survey).
This is because you will get 25 just for clicking the link, even if you do not qualify for the survey. How many more points you will then get depends on how much of the survey you can do.
The highest amount is what you get if you are able to finish the survey. By that, I mean that at some survey sites, you will halfway through a survey, find out you do not qualify for the rest, and then you will get nothing for your time. At M3 Panel, this is not the case. You will get points for the time you spend.
If you order a product from the M3 Panel store, they will pay for the postage and packaging, so it will not cost you anything to receive your rewards.
Be aware that if you have points on your account that are more than 3 years old, they will be deleted. 3 years is a long time, so most people will probably have used the points before.
But still nice to know in case you are planning to save up as many points as possible before getting a reward – just remember to get your reward before the points are 3 years old.
Also, if you have not taken a survey for 24 months, your account will be closed. I am guessing that if you join, it is because you are planning to be active, take surveys, and get rewards, but still good to know.

How much money can you make on M3 Panel?
M3 Panel pays pretty well in relation to the time spent. You can easily and quickly make enough points to request a voucher or whatever else you want. Also, you will not waste time clicking on links to surveys you do not qualify for, as you know you will get at least some points if you click a link.
On rare occasions, I have received a broken link due to technical issues at M3 Panel, but it is very rare, so it has not bothered me.
When you receive the email invitation for a survey, it will say how many minutes you should approximately expect to spend on the survey. My experience is that it is a pretty good estimate, but of course, it depends on how much time you spend considering each answer.
It is also possible that you will only spend half of the time estimated, as you sometimes will only be able to, for example, answer questions about two products, while others have knowledge about 5, and then it will obviously take you a shorter time to do the survey.
You can always choose whether you wish to participate in a survey or not. If you do not wish to participate, you just ignore the invitation. Most surveys are only available for a certain period of time. How long the survey is open will also be stated in the email invitation you receive.
I just want to make you aware that, as with any other paid survey site, M3 Panel cannot make you enough money to live from. It can be a nice supplement to get some nice extra gifts for yourself or vouchers to buy food etc., but you should definitely not plan on making a living online from it.
In which countries is M3 Panel available?
You can sign up for this paid survey site if you live in one of the Nordic countries.
That is Sweden, Norway, Denmark, or Finland.
But even if you live in one of these four countries, I would definitely advise you to also join other survey sites in your country as the opportunities on M3 Panel are a bit limited compared to many other sites, in my experience.
If you live in one of the Nordic countries and are interested in paid surveys, M3 Panel can be worth checking out.
But it also has some disadvantages and is not necessarily the best choice. So let's finish this review by summing up the pros and cons so you can get a better overview before deciding if you should join or not.
- Easy to use
- Gives rewards even when you do not qualify
- Many rewards to choose from
- Limited earning opportunities
- Does not pay out in cash
M3 Panel is easy to use, it is fairly easy to make enough to request a reward, you get a pretty good reward for your time, and you will never have to attempt a survey without getting a reward for it.
I also really like that you already in the email invitation will know how many points you can make, how long it will take, and whether you can take the survey on a phone or if you need your computer.
However, if it is the right option for you depends a lot on your preferences. If you like survey sites that offer daily options, then M3 Panel cannot always live up to this.
Also, it does not pay in cash, so if you prefer PayPal survey sites, M3 Panel is also not for you.
No matter what, M3 Panel does offer limited options, so even if you decide to join it, you should make sure also to join other survey sites in your country to get enough survey opportunities, in my experience.
If you have any comments, questions, or have any experiences with M3 Panel yourself, I would love to hear from you in a comment below.

Great Panel Paid Surveys for those live in Scandinavia countries. Nevermind the minus points about cash payout, the prize given for me still realistically rewarding. Win the chance to bag prizes like EPL matches giveaway and F1 Monaco trip is still considered as fantastic.
The guides is good completely written here. Your reviews of the application awesome. I bet Scandinavians will have full pictures of how this panel surveys worked. Better and looks genuine without all those “common” paid surveys hype that selling their marketing efforts with “lots of cash rewards” themes.
Thanks for your comment. I am glad you found the information useful. For me this is also a site where I do not care to much about the fact that it does not pay cash. Compared to many other sites that only offer points, M3 has some really nice vouchers and products that are as good as money.
I live in Canada so I would never come across this survey product. Have you tried any others operating in North America?
I find you have to work your ass off just to make a few bucks, hardly making it worthwhile. I do like the idea of exchanging your points for products and gift cards/vouchers. Some of them operate pretty decent online stores. Thanks for this, really well done.
There are some really good options for paid survey sites in North America like for example PaidViewpoint and CashCrate. But you can also check my top 10 list to see which other sites there are in that area.
If you find the right sites, I think that it is definitely worth the time, and not very hard to make earn a bit extra. It will not be something to make a living from, but can be a great way to make a little extra cash or free products.
This is an interesting way to earn a small amount of spending money. I have seen such sites in the USA, but this is the first in the Nordic countries. I realize that you do not get paid in cash, but if you get vouchers for places like supermarkets (who doesn’t eat), then it is almost as good as cash. I do not live in one of these countries, but it is nice to know that such opportunities exist there.
Yes it is great that M3 Panel offers vouchers to supermarkets. And as you say – who does not need to go the the supermarket once in a while:-)
You are welcome.
