REDEEMING REWARDS

checkmark No points system
Accrue a balance of $8.00 (or 4 GBP) in your account, receive a PayPal payment within 48 hours of request and sometimes even instantly. $10 USD (£5) minimum account balance required for Amazon vouchers.

Register for Paid Surveys and Cash Out With PayPal or Amazon

Crowdology offers cash for each survey completed. 5 minute surveys pay $0.50 and after a balance of $8.00 (or £4 in the UK) is accrued in your account, you can withdraw your earnings to your PayPal account. Alternatively, choose to receive an Amazon voucher. Surveys pay anywhere from $0.40 - $10 each.

Types of Surveys Offered

Online surveys on everyday topics, brand-name household products and current issues. Crowdology stresses that their surveys are not boring!

Survey Lengths

The surveys themselves are quite short, ranging from 2 to 20 minutes in length 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.

Sweepstakes

Sweepstakes are held sporadically and usually upon registering to the Crowdology panel. You can also be entered into sweepstakes by sharing Crowdology with your friends via email invite.

Some of the prizes Crowdology members have won include Bose Quiet Comfort Noise Cancelling Headphones, Spotify Premium Subscriptions and ASOS Vouchers, just to name a few.

Redemption Process

In order to withdraw from your account, you will need to have at least $8.00 in your Crowdology account (or £4 in the UK) as well as a PayPal account to transfer your Crowdology funds to. This company does not pay out rewards via check. The time between the request and the balance landing in your PayPal account is on average 48 hours. Also, if you use Amazon Payment, it could take up to 4 weeks before you see your money.

Do not use

July 25, 2021 by Gra from United Kingdom

Try and do surveys all you get is a header saying you are not allowed to do surveys... Customer service NONE never reply after numerous emails. When the panel works it works well... a rarity at the moment

Suspicious Site

June 18, 2021 by Dillon from United States

I had no issues with this site whatsoever UNTIL I requested a payout from them. I had been with the site for a little while, had taken many surveys, and never had any complaints.

I finally requested a $10 Amazon.com gift card payout. From my understanding, the payouts are supposed to be automatic, but after 24 hours of waiting I still had not received it. I could've lived with waiting a little longer, but when I tried logging into my account the next day I was continuously taken to an error page. When I tried to contact them via e-mail to ask them about what was going on, the e-mail wouldn't even send. All of this leads me to believe that my account was unjustly terminated.

From what I've read from other users about this site, I'm sure I would've been accused of "violating their terms". This would be untrue as I always answered the questions to the best of my ability.

I have used many survey sites over the years. Some of them are still great, others are getting very stingy/suspicious with the way they handle their business. However, this site takes the cake.

I've never had a site terminate me simply for reaching a payout goal. Ridiculous.

Never reply to messages when help required

March 27, 2021 by Gavin from United Kingdom

Waited for payment now over 3 months, 10+ attempts to contact them through website and email and not had a reply back, steer clear of them.

NOT MANY SURVEYS

February 9, 2021 by Chris from United Kingdom

Seem ok pay is ok and they are trustworthy but I hardly receive any surveys so I am not sure its worth the effort.

Be careful

November 3, 2020 by James from United Kingdom

Closed my account as soon as I reached the £4 payout threshold. They did not inform me of this & when I inquired in to why my account was closed & where my money was I received the following response:
'Hi James
Our systems have identified activity that is in violation of Crowdology Terms of Use, and/or Clint's Participant Terms & Conditions for Panel Membership. As a result we have removed your panelist account from out system and you will no longer be able to log in, take part in surveys or other research programs, or redeem or receive any rewards.This decision will not be reviewed or reversed'

So firstly, I think that is actually illegal to withhold earned funds without valid reason, you might say they gave a reason as in apparently violating theirs T&Cs but I have enquired repeatedly in to what these violations that I have made actually are and have received no response.
I am always very vigilant when answering surveys and to be honest with Crowdology you have to be as they love to screen you out once you've spent a good 10/15 minutes completing the majority of a survey (data harvesting without giving due/perceived reward, pretty sure that's illegal too).

Basically this company are now gathering and using answers so that they get paid by the 3rd parties for surveys but are now carrying out every trick in the book to avoid paying members.
