Frequently Asked Questions

What happens next?

Thank you for registering for our panel!  If you haven't done so please click here to register.  

After you are registered with us we will contact you via an email link and ask you a series of questions that help us decide which surveys you qualify to take.  You will be notified by email when a new survey is available to take.  You will click on the link and answer a few questions to determine if you qualify to take the survey.  If you qualify, you will be sent a link to the survey.   You will usually have a week to complete the survey.  Specific instructions will be provided at each survey.  You will need to fully complete the survey in the stated time to receive payment.

How often do I take surveys?

You will be asked to participate in surveys in two ways:   in a short survey each month and in lengthier studies.  The monthly survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete.  You will receive survey credits (PlaysNicely Points) after each completed monthly survey.  After you have 5 PlaysNicely survey credits on your account you will receive a check for $20.  There will also be opportunities to take longer surveys or to participate in different types of research.  Most of this research you will be able to complete on your computer.  There may also be surveys that have you take pictures of you doing crafts, or we may send product for you to try then you will complete a survey.  When those types of tests come up, you will be given specific instructions.  You will be paid specifically for each of these longer surveys you qualify for and complete. The length and the payment for these surveys will vary but will be clear when you register to take them.  These studies average $10 - $35 a study.  You can receive one of these surveys as often as once every three months.

You may or may not be qualified for all of the longer surveys.  You will receive a short questionnaire to see if you qualify to take the survey.

How will I get paid?

You will be mailed a check to the address you have on file with Plays Nicely with Paper.  If you move, you must contact us to change your address and/or update your profile.  For the monthly surveys, you will receive a check in the mail at the address on file when you have completed 5 surveys and have 5 PlaysNicely Points.    For individual, lengthier surveys, when you have completed the survey in the allotted time, you will be sent a check as payment.



What are my responsibilities as a panel member of Plays Nicely with Paper?

  • I will be honest and answer truthfully both when answering questions associated with Play Nicely with Paper surveys
  • I will complete the surveys by the deadline given to me or I understand that I may not be able to participate in the research project and therefore, may not be compensated for the agreed upon project.
  • I understand that my participation is noted and missed or uncompleted surveys may make me ineligible to participate in future studies.
  • I understand that to validate for accuracy, I may be asked to answer some initial questions that qualify me for a survey and if my answers change, I may become disqualified and may be not compensated.
  • I will not share information discussed in the survey with others, on chat rooms, in person, via email, or on a blog.

Is my personal information shared?

No.  All personal information you provide is completely confidential.  We will never share or sell your personally identifiable information.

Plays Nicely with Paper would like to thank you for taking part in our  Market Research surveys about

paper crafts and paper crafting manufacturers. We are not trying to sell or promote anything. We are a  market research

survey company using scientific methods and we promise that, in obtaining your co-operation, we will not mislead

you about the nature of the research or the use, which will be made of the findings.


The answers you give us will be treated as Confidential unless you have given your consent to the

contrary. In the relatively few instances where we ask you for permission to pass data on in a form which

allows you to be personally identified, we will ensure that the information will be used only for research

purposes. We will not send you unsolicited mail or pass on your email addresses to others for this

purpose. If we want to send you future email, we will ask your explicit permission for this.


As with all forms of market and opinion research, your co-operation is voluntary at all times. No personal

information is sought from or about you, without your prior knowledge and agreement. You are entitled at

any stage of the interview, or subsequently, to ask that part or all of the record of your interview be

destroyed or deleted. Wherever reasonable and practical we will carry out such a request.
