Do you love to look at new products? Do you like to voice your opinion? 

Register with us to start attending focus groups and other paid research activities! If you are interested in participating, please register your details online and follow our Facebook page for project listings.

As a consumer, your opinion about a company’s products and services is very valuable. 

You get to contribute to the improvement and development of new and existing products and services, and you get paid great cash incentives for your time, effort and opinions.

Payments vary, based on the duration and criteria of the group.

COVID has changed the way we make payments. Cash payments after in-person groups have become a thing of the past.  We now pay most respondents in the form of a voucher that is emailed to you.  We use GiftPay for this.

For some projects you are paid in cash (if it’s an in-person session) and some you are paid by EFT.

You will be notified of the method at the time of being booked into the research project.

Research sessions occur at a number of locations around Australia. We are constantly looking for people living in any part of Australia.
