Why do you want me?
Our members are volunteers from throughout Australia, and it is very important to us that our Panel represents all the different types of households that make up our wide population. This is why we welcome all types of households, from single ones to those with large families plus we have members that span all ages, from 16 up to 90 and above!
It doesn't matter how much or how little shopping you buy. We would like YOU to join our Scanning Panel because you too are an essential part of the Australian population and with your unique purchasing habits your contribution would be very important to us.
What will I have to do when I join?
As a Panel Member, we will ask you to record all of the purchases that are brought into your home. There are no complicated forms. All you do is scan the barcode of each item purchased using a hand-held scanner, enter the price from the receipt, and this provides us with all the information we need.
How often do I need to scan?
You will need to scan all items that are bought from everywhere, by all members in your household.
So you can see, there is no hard and fast rule on how often you should scan but what is important is that whenever any items are purchased and brought into your household that they should always be scanned.
Which items should I scan?
All items that are purchased by yourself and any other member in your household need to be scanned. If an item does not have a barcode on its packaging this is not a problem because we will provide you with a barcoded booklet so you can scan these items too.
How do you collect my shopping information?
Your scanner's memory will save all of the information that you scan. We can collect this information via your scanner's base unit. The base unit connects automatically to Nielsen without any cost to you as the call is charged directly to us via a freecall number.You do not need a home phone line to join.
How will I be rewarded?
In return for scanning your purchases, you will receive reward points. You will be able to exchange them for a variety of fantastic gifts & vouchers that are featured in our gift catalogue.
What happens to my information?
The information we receive is used to produce reports, which give manufacturers and retailers an insight into the performance of their products and services. Our reports are produced on a panel basis. This means that the information that you provide is combined anonymously with our other panelists' information.
