As you can probably tell from the name, OpinionWorld is a survey site, where you can get paid for your opinion.
But is OpinionWorld surveys legit or just a big waste of time?
This is something you need to know before joining any paid survey site. In this OpinionWorld review you will get all the details, and will find out how much money you can make on the site, how easy it is to use, and if it in general is worth your time.
This will make it easy for you to decide whether it is the right survey panel for you to join or not.
What is OpinionWorld and what does it offer?
OpinionWorld offers paid surveys and is a very basic site. With basic I mean that there are not a lot of other options than doing surveys, so it is very easy to use and get started with.
The options on OpinionWorld are:
The way you make money on OpinionWorld is through taking surveys and sharing your opinion.
You will in most cases get an email invitation, when there is a new survey available for you, so you do in theory not have to login to the platform to check.
But I have however also experienced not always getting the email invitations. It seems a bit random when I would get them and when I would not. So it is still a good idea to regularly login and check for available surveys yourself.
The site is in general very user-friendly and easy to use.
The exact amount of surveys you can participate in depends a lot on the country you live in. It is not one of the survey sites with the most opportunities, but in general it has a good amount.
An interesting thing I have found is that you can sometimes take Opinion World surveys on other platforms. You can for example take them through a platform like ClixSense. So if you do not feel like joining OpinionWorld, or if you one day do not want to be a member of it anymore, you can sometimes still take the surveys on other platforms.
If you are very lucky, you can win a big money prize in addition to your rewards on Opinion World.
The platform has a quarterly prize draw, where the rewards are worth $10,000. This prize is for the US and will vary depending on the country you live in, but all countries where the site is available have a draw.
Every time you participate in a survey, you will automatically get an entry into this draw on top of the reward for the survey itself. Like any other lottery, it is obviously not easy to win, so do not sign up for the site just to participate in the draw. But nice extra chance, if you want to participate in the surveys anyway.
Donations to charities:
In some countries, you also get the chance to give a donation to a charity whenever you take a survey on OpinionWorld.
This is not something that will be taken from your reward, but something OpinionWorld gives when you take a survey. It does not say anywhere how big the donation is, but just say which charities you can chose from, and how many donations the charity has received.
The way it works is that after you have completed a survey, you will get your reward, and you will then be asked which charity you want to support, as OpinionWorld wish to give a donation, because you completed the survey.
I think this is a nice extra touch. Would of course be nice to know how big a donation they give, but overall, I think it a great idea. And remember it will not be taken from your reward.
How do you get paid?
You earn point, when you do a survey on OpinionWorld. These points can then be exchanged to either cash through PayPal, a number of different gift cards or be used to a number of webshops. Which webshops and gift cards that are available depend on the country you live in.
You can request a payout to PayPal once you have earned around $5 (again this depends on the country you live in).
In general, you earn points, but there are also sometimes surveys where you do not earn points but only entries into the quarterly lottery. You can see information about the reward before you chose to take a survey.
Sometimes you will receive emails when there is a new survey available, but not always. So it can be a good idea to check the site once in a while yourself, to check if there are any available surveys..
How much time do I have to spend to make money on OpinionWorld?
Most surveys take 10-15 minutes on OpinionWorld. I think that is an ok time to spend on a survey, and it is a very normal time to spend per survey on most other survey sites as well.
Unfortunately, the OpinionWorld rewards in relation to the time spend are not as high as on the top paying survey sites.
It can still be a nice way to make some extra cash, and the payout threshold is not very high, so it is easy to reach. And I have been paid out by the platform myself, so I know it is legit and pays out.
In general it can be a nice extra site to join, but you should not join it as the only survey site, as you will then not get very many earning opportunities.
It is important to remember that paid surveys in general are not a way to make a full-time income online. They are a very nice and easy way to make some extra cash and at the same time have your opinion heard. You just need to do it with the right expectations.
Can you use it on mobile?
It is great being able to take surveys on your mobile devices, as you can then do it on the go, and whenever you have a little extra time.
On OpinionWorld you will be able to take most of the surveys on mobile. In the email invitations you get with surveys, you can just click the link on your phone, and then you will be taken to the survey.
Not all surveys will be perfectly optimized for mobile, so in some cases you might have to zoom in and out a bit. But overall it works fine to take OpinionWorld surveys on mobile.
The platform itself works fine on mobile as well. It does not have an app, but you can login to the site from the browser on your mobile and use it here.
Who can join OpinionWorld?
OpinionWorld is available in 32 different countries and languages. You will therefore very possibly be able to get surveys in your own language, which makes it more user-friendly.
In most countries you have to be at least 18 years old to join.
Be aware that you are not allowed to login or do surveys, if you are in another country than where you signed up. They can end up banning you from the site, if you do this.
Can you get support?
I find that how well any service handle customer requests or questions tells a lot. And I do not have a very good experience with the customer service of OpinionWorld.
It is important to say that this might very well differ from country to country, as each country has its own customer service.
My experience in the country I live in (a small European country) has however been very poor. One day when I tried to login to the site, I just got a message that I could not login, as I had violated the terms and conditions. They had not sent me any messages about this, and the message did not say anything about what I had done. My guess was that it was because I tried to login from another country than where I signed up while being on holiday.
I therefore wrote to their customer service and explained this and asked, if that was the reason my account was cancelled, and if it was possible to open it again. I just got a short answer back saying that they could not reopen my account, as I had violated the terms and conditions. Still, they did not give me a reason. So I decide to write again and insist that at least they told me why my account was closed. Again, I just got a short answer back saying that it was because I had violated the terms and conditions.
So in my experience, OpinionWorld’s customer service is very poor (again this will very likely be different in other countries).
So the warning is: If you decide to join, make sure you read the terms and conditions, and do NOT login while you are travelling. Also, just in case, make sure you cash out as soon as you can, so you do not lose your earnings, if something should happen.
To be fair, I also have to say that before this incident, I did not have problems with the site, and I had been paid several times without problems.
Final verdict – legit or scam?
OpinionWorld is legit, but does this mean it is worth joining? It has both good and bad sides, so let’s sum up the pros and cons, so you can get a better overview before deciding to join or not.
- Free to join
- Easy to use
- Low payout threshold
- Gives free donations to charities
- Pays out through PayPal
- Rewards in relation to time not as high as on some other sites
- Not very many survey opportunities
- Poor customer service in some countries
There are many things I like about OpinionWorld. I for example appreciate the user-friendliness of the site, the low payout threshold, and that it pays out through PayPal.
The rewards in relation to the time spent is however not as high as on some other sites, and I have myself had a poor experience with its customer service.
In general, there are other survey sites that gives more opportunities. You can see the best survey sites in your country here.
But OpinionWorld is a legit survey site, and it can be a good survey panel to join as an extra site.
