Postal survey needs participants in NE and North Thailand
« on: November 16, 2014, 03:03:13 PM »
Quotas GmbH, a think tank in Hamburg/Germany, is looking for participants in their new project on behalf of the Universal Postal Union - the UPU - they are looking for panellists living in our region. Namely 2 (more) from Nakhon Ratchasima, 3 from Ubon Ratchathani: 2 from Khon Kaen and 3 from Chiang Mai.

Your survey task would be:
-  You receive on average 2 test letters per week, sent to your private address
-  You enter all dates of receipt of your test mail on their website www.world-mail-panel.com

This project runs continuously. Of course one can end up his participation at any time but for the continuity of the survey a longer participation would be desired. During your holidays of course they will stop the dispatch of your test items.

For your activity, you will receive a monthly reward of 7 USD. You can choose between:

- an Amazon gift voucher (www.amazon.com)
- or payment on a registered account with Skrill (www.skrill.com) or PayPal (www.paypal.com)
- or they donate your award to the international humanitarian medical aid agency "Doctors without borders" (www.msf.org)

If you want to join this panel, please sign up on the Registration form on their website with the survey code "GMS").  You will also be asked  how you heard of that panel. If you enter "koratfart.com" there and do get admitted, I should get a small contribution from them supporting this forum.

All you need to do is check your letter box every day and enter the data of the test letters you received into their website, so they can find out, how long mail takes from different spots on the planet to this part of the world.

Reading recent posts about problems with postal services in this forum, as well as about the preference to order things from home instead of shopping at The Mall, I do think this panel for the improvement of logistics should be supported. And it's not a scam! You don't need to invest any money or give away personal data besides your email and postal address.

Quotas wrote to me today, that they're still looking for panelists from Khon Kaen and Ubon Rachathani.

From a question on Korat-Info I've learnt, that some additional info might be necessary. If you applied, weren't admitted to the panel, but see now they're still looking for panelists in your area; the reason might be that your postal code is not the one they're looking for. Of course they cannot reveal which post offices they're targeting to not influence the outcome of the research. Post offices have to be unaware of being "under surveillance".  ;)

Quotas wrote me, that they're still looking for any people living in Ubon Ratchathani (postcode: 34000 only) and in Khon Kaen (postcode: 40000 only) who might be interested in that project.

I've been getting letters from all over the world since two and a half months now. It's about no work at all to enter the data in their website, and I'm always curious for the next, as they usually have nice stamps affixed. Quotas asks for keeping the letters for about three months, in case there might be any further questions. Then I'll probably give the stamps to the village school, so the kids here can have a little glimpse to the postal world.

Pbviously Quotas hasn't found all participants they need. They wrote me today:

Thank you very much for your steady participation in our project UPU GMS!

Today, we would like to ask you if you can help us finding more reliable panellists for this project in Thailand. Maybe you have friends, colleagues, family members etc. who would like to participate as well?

We are looking for participants in the following cities:

- Ubon Ratchathani (postcode 34000 only)
- Nakhon Ratchasima (postcode 30000 only)

Interested people are requested to register on our website www.world-mail-panel.com (survey code "GMS").


Postcode 30000? Amphur Muang, Korat? Shouldn't be too difficult. Lots of farangs there! But also Thais can sign up and receive test letters from all over the world.
