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.

Reliable and reasonable pay.

April 30, 2022 by Oliver from United Kingdom

This site always has plenty of surveys available, the pay is higher than average, and they have always been 100% timely and reliable when I cash out. I have deducted one star because when I withdraw to Paypal their fee is deducted from my earnings, unlike other sites, who take the hit themselves, and because they sometimes take the money back from completed survey payments without explaining why.

Another issue is that one survey provider: Alchemer.eu, doesn't return you to the site after completion, so you don't get paid. The support team used to sort that out but now they ignore my messages.

Don’t bother.

February 22, 2022 by Paul from United Kingdom

Not only do they take some of the money you’ve earned for “PayPal” requests, after a few weeks you will be blocked from completing surveys for no apparent reason. Awful and highly suspect company avoid at all costs.

Taking money for doing surveys!

December 31, 2021 by Shaun from United Kingdom

I've been with Crowdology for a while now. I knew that they suffered from numerous screen-outs when I joined, but I accepted that. However, recently, things have gotten worse on there. I think the last straw for me was that they now take money earned from surveys OUT of your account under the guise of "corrections" after you've spent ages completing the surveys themselves. So, when my account got over £4, I cashed-out for the very last time.

UPDATE: And now they've closed my account (probably due to this review), because I can't log into it anymore. You have to admit that really is a VERY PETTY thing to do, and sums up the nature of this company. So my advice to you all is: AVOID! AVOID! AVOID!

was good, but now very sketchy

December 19, 2021 by Tiffany from United States

crowdology was a pretty good site for months and months and payouts came fast, but something has changed. Customer service does not seem to really exist. I cashed out around $30 in 3 increments and was never paid for any of them. I have contacted customer service/ made a ticket and never heard anything back,until, I used another email address and guess what they answered back. The problem is they never answered my question and I tried contacting them again with the same address,no answer back. I know they're ignoring me just as I thought. It's a shame, because I really put this site above the majority, now it just seems very sketchy and untrustworthy.

Low payment

September 29, 2021 by Fraser from United Kingdom

I have used them for 3 years and only managed 15 cash outs for around the £4-£5 mark each time. Lots of surveys don't work now and they take a 2% fee for Paypal withdrawals.

In my opinion this website is not worth the time and effort it takes to get to the payment threshold.
