Admit minors to participate in paid surveys?

For a long time minors have had a high indirect purchasing power. In recent decades, however, the direct purchasing power of this group has also increased considerably. Children and young people are a sought-after target group at many companies. For this reason, schoolchildren & schoolgirls who take part in market research studies are frequently sought after.

However, what is there to consider?

School children may also take part in online surveys and earn something in addition. A prerequisite, however, is that their parents agree to the part-time job. Even if this declaration of consent is usually not requested or checked in writing, it is still tacitly presupposed.

Parents who want their children to take part in paid surveys should attach particular importance to the fact that their children only take part in data protection-juridically harmless panels. As a rule, these are all market researchers operating within the European Union, as they must adhere to European data protection standards.

This means that the data records collected are evaluated anonymously and passed on exclusively anonymously so that no conclusions can be drawn about the identity of the respondents. Caution is advised with providers from overseas and the USA, where data protection guidelines are sometimes more lax.

What is behind the polls?
The market researchers are paid by the companies for the data collection, the commissioning companies receive important information on how you can align your brand or product line with the wishes of your customers and the participants in the studies receive an expense allowance for their participation.

How much do the students earn
A survey lasts between 5 and 30 minutes on average. As a rule, amounts between 0.50 cents and 4 euros per survey are paid.

How to pay out
Most panels either pay by Paypal or allow the transfer to a current account. Some shopping vouchers are also used to pass on the expense allowance.

They are also open to people of other age groups, but due to their low minimum entry age they are predestined for pupils.
