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.

Banned and not paid

August 23, 2021 by Sandra from United States

There are hundreds of complaints on Cint-related panels. Many of us were banned and not paid. Cint took our money without giving a reason!
Don't even try! I analyzed the traffic and realized they recently changed their fraud-detection provider to ******ax, known for it's unreasonable and false-positive fraud detection algorithms. Each false-positive detection makes your fraud score greater even though you're not banned until you withdraw.
Hey, Cint! Do you want to lose your business using unethical services, strategies and algorithms?

Still reliable but rate of pay is falling behind.

August 20, 2021 by Andrea from United Kingdom

Generally speaking, much of what I have said previously about this company is still the case. Their surveys are brief, to the point, often interesting and it is extremely rare to be "screened out". The low payment threshold allows the panellist to be paid within a short timescale and the actual transaction is virtually instantaneous.

However, the hourly rate of reward seems to be falling behind what is being offered by some other sites. I'm not sure how much longer I will continue with this panel as I don't feel the equivalent of £3 per hour ( an approximation by own calculation ) is a fair exchange for my time and effort.

Previous Review: The majority of surveys I receive from Crowdology are short, punchy and fun. They pay only pennies for these brief, snappy questionnaires but when you calculate this into the equivalent of an hourly rate they actually compare well with other sites. Best of all, their payout threshold is a mere £4 so if you combine this with the fact that they send surveys every few days, it isn't long until you can claim your reward. When you do request payment (Paypal), the transaction goes through in minutes. Many of their surveys come in the form of short quizzes and they really are fun to take.

From time to time slightly longer surveys paying up to £2 (ish) also come along.

So to summarise, you won't get rich by offering your services to these guys, but you will be sent surveys frequently. You will rarely be bored with their fun, quick surveys. You will reach your (low) payout threshold very quickly and when you do you will be paid almost instantaneously.

One of my favourites.

It's easy to cash out because you only need to reach $6 (PayPal). Another plus is that if you don't qualify for a survey, they'll keep offering more till you do--or they run out of them for the day. They offer surveys quite frequently.

Do not use

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.
