Opinio Quest is a survey site that claims to pay you for your views.
I have been doing market research tasks for years now and I know how its possible to earn just by dropping your two cents in from time to time.
This site came my way having been promoted on other reward sites and also after having a few mentions on Survey Police.
I am sure you want to know if a site like this will live up to there promises and pay out.
Since finding them I have joined Opinio Quest to give you an idea of what to expect in terms of earning opportunities.
If surveys are what you are looking then this review will prove useful to you.
What Is Opinio Quest About?
Opinio Quest is a new site that I have only just seen recently however there isn’t too much info on them.
In fact I saw them promoted on PanelPlace where I was shown all the types of reward you could earn for your opinion.
A lot of what I found on the site was more about the earning and less about the background.
I did find on there social media accounts that they were created in October 2019.
However I will say I was surprised to see a lack of following especially on Twitter.
Which isn’t normal as most survey sites have at least a few thousand followers.
From the background information they are working with Elicit Research, LLC and are based in California, US.
Where Do You Start?
On Opinio Quests homepage you are able to create an account by clicking the purple sign up button.
When I did this I was shown a page of 7 steps, essentially seven details they needed to know from me.
After I completed these questions I was able to see inside Opinio Quest.
Your job isn’t quite done as what you need to do is verify your email and create a password at the same time.
It’s all self explanatory and you just need to follow the instructions that they send you.
Once I had gone through all the steps I was given 100 points worth $1.
I checked out there FAQ which says you must be 17 to join, so do bare that in mind.
How Do You Make Money?
The first and most obvious way is through completing surveys. You will find these on your dashboard.
This is all organised, you know not only what surveys are available but you are told the length of each one, the topic (not on all of them) and the cash payout.
Studies can range in payouts and lengths, but there guideline for how long you will be required to spend is around 10 to 15 minutes.
You will also be notified of new studies through your email.
The other way I haven’t mentioned is you can refer friends to the panel and get for it.
I was given two surveys, one was based around the england women’s national team.
Now because I was told what one of the surveys was about beforehand I thought I would give it a go.
As you can see both surveys paid out at $0.50 each. However this payout won’t be the same for each one you do as it can differ.
I started filling in some of the first questions of the survey however as you can see I was disqualified. This mean’t I didn’t get the full credit.
But I still got a few points for trying.
You can get more surveys by building your profile, here you have 6 categories to work through. This includes:
- Shopping and Spending
Doing them will give Opinio Quest more information about you so they can send surveys that are tailored towards you.
What I Am A Fan Off
1. Layouts Nice
With the established survey sites out there most of stuck with the same layout. This can look outdated at times.
Opinio Quest they have a dashboard that fits with the times and is easy to navigate around.
What I Am Not A Fan Off
As you would expect with a new site there are a few aspects that weren’t quite right.
I am going to discuss with you the main issues I experienced with Opinio Quest.
1. Not A Great Deal Of Surveys
This is a problem if your looking at this site as a viable way to make money.
The quantity of surveys aren’t good enough.
I did mention about finishing your profile but with no survey routers and other ways to make money, you will struggle.
If you remember I had 2 surveys, which paid $1 in total.
I tried one and was rejected so already I have just one remaining with no guarantee that I will get paid.
So all in all opportunities at this stage are scarce.
2. Lack Of A Following
This isn’t a deal breaker as if a survey site pays that’s all that matters.
But at least four months in and there isn’t too many people talking about this site.
I even headed over too there Twitter page that I found on there website and despite posting regularly they only have 6 followers which is strange.
3. Website Not Fully Finished
Trying to research this site was a bit of a headache due to links not working and just a lack of info.
They have icons in there menu which all link to the same page.
For e.g I clicked on the ‘affiliate’ section but was redirected to the FAQ.
That is okay, however there was no information there for that aspect.
So while the site looks nice it is rushed and gives me the impression that it was set up within a few days.
You could give them the excuse of that they are new but even then surely you wouldn’t release a website that isn’t fully completed.
4. Unclear Payouts
The payouts was something I struggled to get my head round.
I have seen from other people that they pay out within 24 hours however there is very little info.
First of all I tried to check out the payment options and I was told there is no gift cards in my country.
Now bearing in mind that I signed up with UK details and was even given a survey about the England national team
This does make me wonder if they do pay out or not.
As you can see by that image that I am advised to contact the admin but it does seem weird that I can’t see options directly on the site.
Is Opinio Quest Legitimate?
At this stage I would not recommend Opinio Quest as there are no payment proofs at the moment.
There are a few reviews going about but still no evidence they pay despite having a connection with an established market research company.
If you are thinking of joining I would wait a few months at least, as there are aspects of the site that are not done.
They need to fix error pages, no payout options present and lack of ways to earn.
Hopefully this Opinio Quest review as helped you out. Have you joined them? Been paid out?
Thank you for this review of Opinion Quest, I have learned a lot, I am just wondering if it is like any other survey company, where the call you and email you for months after you answer personal questions, about health, car insurance, etc? If so, it is not for me. From what your review states it seems like one of the opinion questions or surveys that I have done, but thanks for a great review.
I visited this site not long ago and it seems like a brand new set up. Some of the links weren’t working and the testimonials do come off as very superficial. If I haven’t seen your full review, I would have considered it a scam. Given that many survey sites come and go nowadays, we shall see how long Opinio Quest would last…
One thing good about this one is that at least you didn’t have to go through the entire survey just to realize at the end that you didn’t qualify. Some sites are like that. At least you got a whole two points for starting it! LOL All in all, however, I will not be heading over there as there are too many negatives. There are many survey sites out there that are much more transparent.
Thank you for you post. I started my online business for a while now and am actively looking for money-making opportunities. I heard that it is possible to make some money by carrying out survey, but never take time to do the research and find out how to make money through survey.
Here comes your article, which gives us a detailed example on how to make money by performing survey. I particularly like your description of My Experiences, which gives us the real life scenery. Apparently you do get paid by the survey you performed.
I have health niche and can definitely build up my personal profile on this program. The survey will certainly help me expanding my knowledge on health related business. This is one stone with two birds.
It is kind of you sharing this useful information with us.
I enjoy finding new websites that you can make money off of, although it seems based on your review that it may be tough to do with Opinio Quest. Maybe once it gets some more surveys it could be worth the time, but now it looks like there aren’t enough to make anything off of it. I think I will take your advice and wait a few months before I try it out. I appreciate you taking the time to sign up and check it out!
Yeah, I think its probably best to leave it for now, and if there are improvements I will let you know by updating this review.
No problem Travis,
I found your article very useful and informative. I have learnt a lot from your post. I tried few of the survey sites like inboxpounds, toluna, nicequest , research opinion outpost etc. All legit but very time consuming. I prefer nicequest , receive few gifts by nicequest by post after earning some points.I haven’t tried Opinio quest.I will have a look into it.
Well Thanks for sharing the review of Opinio Quest.
Keep up the good work!
No problem, thanks for the comment, good luck with it 🙂
Thanks for sharing your views. I joined awhile back and earned enough points to “cash out” in early February and while I received an email stating “This is a confirmation e-mail that your request towards your point redemption made on 02-02-2020 has been approved by the Opinio Quest Panel Manager. You will get your online voucher/code before the due date as mentioned in the Rewards policy” I have not as of today 3-18-2020 received a voucher or code, not could I find any mention on the site for their Rewards Policy.
Thanks for sharing your experiences Lynne, I’m sorry to hear that. That is a long time to wait for a gift card and they should of paid that out to you by now.
What I would recommend is to contact them again asking what is the latest on the voucher and whether they have sent it off.
Hopefully, the issue gets sorted very soon and do let me know of any progress 🙂
Hi Joshua! I too have taken a ton of surveys with Opinio Quest and finally earned enough to cash out and get a gift code. It has now been 8 weeks and still nothing and in the meantime I’ve already accumulated enough points to cash out again. I have tried emailing 5 times, left numerous messages through their online chat, and also sent several messages through their Contact Form, and I have only received 1 email stating that they were sorry and would look into it and get back to me. That has now been 6 days ago and still nothing. Today, I sent a reply back to the ONLY email response I have received from them, and now I wait again! As I read your very informative article, I realized that, Opinio Quest, is unfortunately a BIG FRUSTRATING JOKE!!! IF, and I mean IF, I do finally receive anything I will update this comment! Thank you for your valuable insight, and for anyone else reading this, I highly recommend staying away from Opinio Quest!!
I understand your frustration, it’s bad that they haven’t sent out a payment to you as 8 weeks is far too long to wait.
The only possible reason that would justify the late payout is because of whats going on with the pandemic and possibly the lack of staff working at the company right now.
With that said they probably should have sent the payment ages ago as its only now that lockdowns have been put in place. It’s a tricky situation, what I would suggest is to keep on contacting them until they reply as your entitled to those earnings.
As you can see from the review I don’t recommend them, I was also a little suspicious that no payment proofs have surfaced, so your comment backs up what I initially thought.
Anyway, I do hope you get this situation sorted out and you get paid out. Let me know how it goes and whether there is any progress.
Also thanks for your comment, Sandy 🙂
I hope you are doing well.
Just read your comment. I got to know that Opinio Quest had a major problem with the fraudulent survey takers because of which they put all the payments on hold for sometime. They just released mine. Maybe you can check with them on your payment status by writing to them at email@example.com
Wishing you my best!
