How do I become a member of Ethnic Voice Accord (EVA)?

To become a member of EVA, simply fill out the join form.  Once you have completed the form an email will be sent to the email you have registered.  Be sure to click on the confirmation link in the email to confirm your membership.

Is there a cost to being an EVA member?

No! Being an EVA panelist is free, we will never ask you for a payment. We pay you for your opinions, including $2 just for registering.

How do I get paid?

As an EVA member you will be paid for every study you complete.  The amount you are paid will be determined by the length and topic of the study.  In addition, you will be paid $2 for registering and $5 for every friend that you refer.  Once your account has reached a minimum of $25, you can cash out your account and will receive a cheque to the address you have registered with.

Can I register more than once as a member (will I get more invitations)?

No, each member can be registered once only. We are interested in capturing multiple opinions and in the name of fairness your opinion can only be counted once. Any member found to have multiple accounts will be removed from EVA.

How do I benefit from participating in surveys?

In addition to influencing the design or modification of products or services by voicing your opinions, you will be paid for every survey you complete.

I don't seem to be receiving your survey invitations

After successfully registering, you should receive our survey invites by email on a regular basis – at least one per month. If the program or website you use to access your e-mail includes spam filtering, please make sure to include in your contacts (also referred to as a white list, address book, safe senders or safe list) to ensure you continue receiving EVA online surveys and e-mail messages.

I completed one of your surveys, but wasn't asked for my name or mailing address. How will I receive my reward?

When an email with a survey invitation is sent to you, there is a unique link (URL) that will connect you to the survey. This is how we know it was you who completed the study. The reward is credited to your account and you can accumulate and cash out whenever you like above the minimum.

When I click on the link, nothing happens / the link appears to be invalid. What should I do?

If clicking on the link does not let you access the survey, please copy and paste the link into the address/location bar of your browser. The link may be cut across two lines or more. If it is, you may have to copy and paste each line separately, removing any spaces.

How will I know if I have a survey to complete?

You will receive an email invitation each time a new survey becomes available. Additionally, you may log into your account at any time to view all surveys currently available to you.

Does my account ever expire?

Like most programs, EVA does have an account expiration policy. Accounts that have been ‘inactive’ for 12 months or more due to inactivity will expire.

How do I update or change my personal information, including my email address?

You may update or modify your registration information by logging into EVA and modifying it from your profile page.

Why do you ask personal information in your survey?

We ask questions about your demographics, interests, employment, purchasing behaviors, and online usage to determine which studies would be the best fit for you and your opinions. The privacy of your data is important to us and will never be shared at any time.
