Projects with the word "Community Sampling" in the title require you to purchase specific items from a store during your visit. You will pay for the product with your own money, and Survey.com will reimburse you.
In order to get reimbursed, you must include a picture of your receipt with the word "VOID" written on it. Your receipt must only include the items you were required to purchase. If you buy other items while at the store, make sure you divide the order so that your personal purchases are on their own receipt.
Other projects, such as demos, will often require you to purchase items, and these will be reimbursed as well.
How do I request my reimbursement payment?
You request a reimbursement payment the same way you request a regular payment. The reimbursement must be approved by our QA team, and when it is, you will request it through the app in the Payment Center.
Please note that all payment requests trigger an automatic popup message that tells you went to expect your payment. Reimbursement payments are handled differently so you can disregard the time frame from the popup.
When do I get reimbursed?
The project description will explain when you'll be reimbursed. It is typically within 48 hours of approval.
What should I do with the products I purchased?
The project description may give you specific instructions. In general, you can discard them, consume them, donate them, or give them away. The only thing you cannot do is sell them.
Can I sell the items I purchased?
No. You may not sell or list for sale the items you purchased during a buyback visit, or any other visit that requires you to purchase products. To be specific: You cannot sell or attempt to sell the items you purchased on Craigslist, eBay, Facebook Marketplace, or any other online, mobile, or offline platform.
If you attempt to sell the items, your account may be placed on probation or deactivated.
