For starters, how’s that for a name? Green Panthera sounds pretty badass. When I was looking around for new survey sites to review, that name caught my eye. I’m actually noticing a bit of a trend here. There are survey sites named after Pandas, Monkeys… and now cats.
Is there more to Green Panthera than a memorable name? Is Green Panthera legit? Or are they a scam? Read my Green Panthera review to find out!
How Do You Earn on Green Panthera?
There are several ways for you to earn on the site. Take surveys is by far the most common method, so let’s start with that:
On Green Panthera, you earn by completing surveys. Companies hire Green Panthera to conduct these surveys. The information gathered from these surveys help the companies make better decisions regarding various aspects of their business. So it’s pretty cool that our feedback - no matter how small in the grand scheme of things - has the potential to sway large corporations.
When a survey becomes available, you’ll get a notification through email. I like this feature because it means you don’t have to figuratively camp out at the Green Panthera site waiting for surveys to become available. I recommend you keep your inbox clear of spam so you don’t miss out on notifications. I go so far as to create individual email accounts for each survey site I join.
Green Panthera makes several surveys available per day. It sounds like a lot in theory, but some of these surveys are duds. I would sometimes log in only to get disqualified while taking it.
Only survey notifications are sent via email. For the other methods, it would still be a good idea to check the site from time to time. And speaking of other methods to earn, let’s get to those now.
Taking Promo Offers
Green Panthera has a pretty sweet offer wall. Here you will find a bunch of offers you can try out in exchange for earnings. These offers usually involve signing-up for a free trial membership, such as a magazine subscription, or downloading a game on your phone and using it for a set period of time.
Heads-up: these offers sometimes auto-renew after the trial period, which means your credit card may be charged. Once you sign-up for the offer, make sure you opt-out of the auto-renew option - unless you really want to keep the subscription, of course. It’s your call.
Green Panthera offers some pretty sweet cashback rewards when you shop at of their partner online shops. When you shop in these stores, you can get 3% and sometimes even 9% of the purchase price back!
Do take note, though, that most of these shops only cater to the US, Canada, and UK markets.
You can also print coupons and use them in designated shops. Members from certain countries may not have available coupons. Partner stores of Green Panthera are usually based in North America.
Green Panthera offers a $5 bonus just for signing up! That’s pretty standard practice across other survey sites, but it’s always a welcome feature.
Your earnings will depend on the number of surveys and tasks you complete. So this means you really gotta hustle to get stuff done.
Most surveys pay from 75 cents to $1 depending on how long they take to complete. They usually take anywhere from five to fifteen minutes to complete.
Now here’s where it gets a little hairy. That sounds like a pretty good rate, especially when you consider Green Panthera sends several survey notifications you get. If you take three $1 surveys a day, that’s around $90 a month, right?
Well, not really. Like I mentioned up above, a lot of times, the surveys you get are dead ends. You take them, then they boot you out before you can complete the survey. It does this for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, by the time you take the survey, the site will already have had enough respondents. Remember what I said about keeping your inbox free of spam? This is why. As soon as a survey notification arrives, you want to be on that almost immediately.
But trying to answer a survey promptly won’t make a difference if the site decides midway that you’re not the correct demographic for it. This is my biggest pet peeve when it comes to survey sites. But I’m writing this on a Friday, and this is officially my chill day. So I won’t rant too much about it.
After you complete a survey or task, it may take up to five days for your earnings to reflect on your Green Panthera account. You can request a payout after you’ve earned a minimum of $30. That’s a pretty high amount, and sadly, I’m seeing more and more survey sites maintaining the same practice. But it still sucks.
Green Panthera sends funds via PayPal. You can also use your earnings on any of Green Panthera’s partner shops. Green Panthera’s site also functions as a shopping portal.
When you request a PayPal payout, you’ll have to wait another two weeks (yes, two weeks) before the money is sent and available in your bank account.
Yeah, I’m not to hot on their payout processing methods. It takes too long just to process, and that’s on top of their high payout minimum. It certainly isn’t impossible to hit $30, but it’ll take a while. I suggest not relying on your Green Panthera earnings for things like groceries and bills. Because it’ll take a while for you to receive your funds, and you might not make whatever deadlines your bills have.
The Verdict: Legit or Scam?
Green Panthera is legit! There are a few things about this site that I don’t like, such as their long processing time and high payout minimum. But beyond all that, Green Panthera is a perfectly legit site. Manage your expectations, and you should have a decent experience using this site.
