Take Surveys, Earn Cash Paid Via PayPal
Crowdology offers cash for each survey completed. 5 minute surveys pay $0.50 and after a balance of 8 (or £4 in the UK) is accrued in your account, you can withdraw your earnings to your PayPal account. Surveys pay anywhere from $0.40 - $10 each. Payment can take up to 48 hours, however some members have reported receiving their earnings immediately after requesting them.
Types of Surveys Offered
Online surveys on everyday topics, products and issues. It is stressed that the topics are not boring!
Surveys vary in length from 2 to 15 minutes and award cash upon successful completion - there are no complex points systems to worry about as cash is awarded each time a survey is finished.
Refer friends to the panel and each month, have a shot at winning Amazon gift vouchers.
Three prize draws are held every month. Member who have completed a survey in the past month, referred a friend or have been screened out of a survey automatically receive an entry into the draw.
Who is Crowdology?

Been with the site about many months and have had survey invites with no survey once at the site , one survey that started and got through a couple questions and went to the site's homepage mid question (no more survey) , several survey invites where the survey immediately said I did not qualify with no questions asked , and several working surveys. Response to emails is spotty.
Once reaching cashout , things seem to have dried up. No surveys in at least a week whereas they used to come at least every other day. Of those that do come, most are ones already completed.
I joined Crowdology about a month ago and have found it to be a straightforward and genuine site. I receive on average 2 surveys a week and have qualified for almost all of them. The cashout threshold is low at £4.00 and I have cashed out twice so far via PayPal with no problems and immediate payment.
Its a big problem for every panel that uses cint but Crowdology must be used the most so has the worst problem.
I really think they have too many members and should stop anyone else joining, its too hard even getting a survey to do and very frustrating.
You only need £4 to request a payment so you'd think it wouldn't take long to reach but they don't send very many surveys as it is and the fact they get full so quickly makes it not quick at all
If they sent at least twice as many surveys and the majority were doable then they would be quite good. But I wouldn't recommend joining at the moment, its not worth it.
I've been a member for several months now and I gave Crowdology a 4.5 star rating. I only took the half star off because I wish they'd send surveys more often. Most surveys I do qualify for as they are consumer-oriented, but they don't last forever, meaning try t pick them up fast. Other than that, the surveys they do send are reasonable length and they are pretty accurate on the length quotes before the survey. Also, I requested a Paypal payment to cash out on 7/7 - it was in my Paypal account the next day on 7/8. That is SUPER FAST, so I'm overall super happy with this panel.
I really do like Crowdology as an online survey site:
- Crowdology's surveys are varied by topic and earnings potential with payouts starting off nice and low at £4 (less the 2% PayPal handling fee). Payment is always prompt via PayPal.
- I especially like Crowdology's impressively minimalistic survey engine. A real plus is that you get straight into a Crowdology survey (or are screened straight out of one) without having to repeat your details for the umpteenth time. There's no messing about with mini-polls, prize draw surveys etc.
So what's not to like about Crowdology?
Well for one thing Crowdology only pays out via PayPal and you might be nervous about PayPal (as I was). You needn't be though.
For me the big thing I have to get over is that because Crowdology is so good at what it does - I want it to do more. For example I want Crowdology to climb up my top ten online survey sites earnings league, but that's realistically not going to happen.
In terms of survey earnings potential Crowdology just doesn't compete with the likes of Global Test Market, Opinion Outpost, Valued Opinions etc. But that's the way Crowdology works, it doesn't try to be something that it isn't and I really do know that.
So there's nothing not to like about Crowdology.
