Frequently Asked Questions

General Enquiries

Q: Who can join Planet Recruit?
A: All residents of Australia and New Zealand 14 years to 90 years may join. If you are under 18 years old (lucky you!), we require your parentís written consent when we invite you to participate in a research project.

Q: Where are research projects held?
A: At professional central location venues (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth), in your home and at shopping centres. We always provide address and directions to the location for each project.

Q: Iíve heard of online surveys. Is Planet Recruit one of them?
A: We are NOT an online quantitative company whose members participate in online surveys. We specialise in projects where our members are required to show up. Cash is usually paid immediately after participation.


Q: Why does Planet Recruit want to know so much about me?
A: The more information we have about you, the more accurately we can match you with projects that are actually relevant to you. This save you and us time and effort in the long run.

Q: What happens to all my information once I register with Planet Recruit?
A: We guard it fiercely! Like Facebook, you can share as much or as little as you like. The more you share, the more active you become. Either way, we NEVER share your information with anyone else.

Q: Does Planet Recruit disclose my personal information and identity to third parties?
A: Never without your consent! We sometimes need to provide researchers with your mobile number so they can meet you where the research is taking place (for example, to meet you at a shopping centre). We ask you if thatís ok before we do. And we also give you researcherís name and mobile number! Your email address is NEVER disclosed to third parties.


Q: How do I receive payment?
A: You will be paid the pre-agreed amount (we include the cash incentive in the email we send you for each project) immediately after your participation from the researcher OR we pay directly into your account the next business day.
