Opinion World - Earn POINTS for EVERY survey you complete!

Options
I don't know if i've posted this in the right place.
I am having trouble getting paid with Opinion World. I had my 1st £10 in July, paid into my PayPal account. I've got another £10 this month and when I try to claim it I keep getting an error message.
I emailed them asking for help. They said they have changed their policies and now only accept verified Paypal accounts. I felt sure my account was verified so I double checked and yes, my Paypal account is.
I emailed them back telling them this but haven't heard anything from them since.
Has anyone else had trouble like this? What did you do?
Also, I had received other payments into my Paypal account from other survey sites.

    Hi Ninkynonk,

    I am in exactly the same boat as you, payment out has been rejected and i have had the same e-mail then no response, im not sre whats going on and cant be of much assistance in how to resolve it as im still figureing that out myself.

    Just thought i wold let you know its not only you in this situation if thats of any comfort.

    I will keep you updated if anything happens.

    Thanks! Maybe they've changed their system and haven't done it correctly to recognise verified accounts. Glad to know I'm not alone. Will update if I hear anything.

    I am just under the amount I need before I can ask them for money. Since I reached that point I've had 3 paying surveys, each time I began one, I got told my password had been disqualified. I've been a member for ages. I have emailed them, they say they've resent the surveys. They haven't.
    I'll probably unsubscribe.

    Oh dear! I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble clemmatis. Maybe they're having glitches in their system.
    I got a reply and was told to log out and close my browser, then to open a new tab and log in again. I had already tried that but I gave it another go and still the same error message.

    Thank you, ninkynonk. It probably is just a glitch but it's interesting that it happened on paid surveys only. I can do the 'prize draw' ones without any problems cropping up at all.

    I've manage to get paid into Paypal. No probs whatsoever. I think it was a computer glitch. Didn't get confirmation email tho.

    I finally reached the limit for a payout and got paid very easily and quickly into Paypal, it's impressive. My being told I was disqualified remains a mystery.

    They're still though the worst site for earning money for me, the 10 I just got was my first ever payout in years of membership!

    Is anyone with them?

    I did a survey work £20 (2000 points) and the points havent gone onto my account, I got an email saying they were looking into it but they havent responded.

    Does anyone have a phone number for them?
