More about money
How do I get paid?
Earnings are generated upon completion of a survey. Once your balance hits the threshold of $17 you can request transfer directly to your PayPal account. If you don't have a PayPal account, it's very easy and useful to set one up when you come to claim your balance. From PayPal you can transfer your cash directly into your bank account or use your PayPal account to fund online purchases.
How do I check/redeem my earnings?
You can undertake this at any time simply by logging into SAHM Online Panel heading to 'YOUR PROFILE' and then select 'REDEEM REWARDS'.
How do I change my password?
Once registered use the credentials we have provided to Login, select 'YOUR PROFILE' followed by 'UPDATE PROFILE' and you'll see the 'Change password' link.
Can I change my username and email?
Your username can't be changed once set. If you need to update your email address, Login, select 'YOUR PROFILE' followed by 'UPDATE PROFILE' and at the top you'll see the 'Change email' link.
What if I forget my password?Head to the Login page, and follow the link to 'Forgot Password?' and we'll email you a new password.

We make this very easy. Simply Login, select 'YOUR PROFILE' followed by 'UPDATE PROFILE', select 'Close Account' near the foot of the page and confirm your action by entering your password. Alternatively, every survey invitation has an UNREGISTER link that you can click.
Why aren't I receiving any invitations?
Most members of our panel receive survey invites within a few days of registering. Unfortunately, some email services read our invitations as spam. For this reason, we ask that you regularly check your spam folder and make any necessary setting changes. Adding [email protected] to your safe sender or contact list usually fixes the problem.
Why have I received a message saying sufficient numbers have participated in the survey?
The internet and emails are fast! Some participants react so quickly that a survey reaches the desired number of respondents before everyone who was invited has a chance to participate.
Why am I receiving a message saying that I am not a member of the survey's target group shortly after beginning a survey?
While regularly updating and building 'YOUR PROFILE' helps enormously, we don't always know precisely if you satisfy all the criteria of a target group when we send out an invitation. If it emerges that you do not qualify as the target group, the survey will end promptly to minimise inconvenience to you.
Why can't I access the survey?
Here are some steps to ensure you are able to access surveys:
- Make sure your popup blocker is turned off.
- Download the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.
- Take the survey from a computer (most surveys are not yet compatible on smartphones or tablets).
- Try using a different browser, such as Chrome or Firefox.
- Paste the survey link into your browser rather than clicking the link in your email.
- Add [email protected] to your safe sender or contact list.
