To get started using the GCI, you can purchase seats to pre-pay for your participants. This allows your participants to access the survey without needing to pay directly. To purchase seats, follow these instructions:


  1. From the My Groups page, click Purchase Seats from the left-side navigation.
  2. Read through the information on this page. In the box next to, "How many would you like to purchase?" enter the number of seats you are purchasing. Click Continue.
