In a recent newsletter sent out last week to its panelists, GlobalTestMarket dropped an interesting little nugget of information implying that the company may be getting ready to offer PayPal payments as a redemption option to members within a few weeks.
If this actually materializes, it will be a welcome feature for me because this happens to be one of my more reliable sources of paid survey income. Currently we receive payments by check, but these are relatively slow because they take about a month to arrive and must be routed through my bank and over to my PayPal account before I can use the funds for outsourcing article writing and other services. Receiving the funds via PayPal directly would save a lot of time and avoid the risk of checks getting lost in the mail.
Portions of the recent April 2009 newsletter are reprinted below. The relevant tidbit is located under the “New GlobalTestMarket Incentive System” heading.
