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!
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 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.
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.

Great if you like wasting time on "Here's a survey, fill out our quick profile, sorry you don't qualify" then "finding you a survey", time & time & time again.
Latest trick is to remove points earned (hard as it is to earn points at present), then to ignore any requests for an explanation. Still get the dreaded 'You are not in the correct country' message as well.
Back in Apr 2017 would have given them 5 stars, but recently it's becoming ridiculous. Today I got offered 15 'follow on' surveys, each of which followed the same pattern 'Here's a new survey for you...Sorry you don't qualify' I wouldn't mind but as we have to fill out a fairly detailed profile, how come all the surveys offered don't fit.
Seems, like many other companies at present the attitude is just 'shove out any old survey, don't worry if it really applies'

I've needed to contact support and each time I try I get no response. Recently my login has been refused but asked to reset my password. On doing so refuses yet again. They accept my email request to change my password. Why can't they answer my request for help?

All I requested was a new password and I got "We regret to inform you that our systems have identified activity that is in violation of Cint's Participant Terms & Conditions for Panel Membership. As a result, we have removed your panelist account from our system and you will no longer be able to login, take part in surveys or other research programs or redeem or receive any rewards.
This decision will not be reviewed or reversed."
and that was after several years of surveys.

I noticed I was banned from this company. I was at about $9, not enough to request payout of course. I tried to do a survey here or there but did not qualify. Next thing I know there is an "error" on the account and my balance is wiped.

I thought most people here were been rather harsh about Crowdology, I was wrong!
I had been a member for quite a number of months and did manage to cash out a couple of times.
Then the fun began, I noticed some of the money I had earned started to be removed for no reason, I contacted their customer support and received no response.
Last week I went to the site and was presented with the error page many of us know so well so I contacted Support and was informed I had been banned for breaking their terms and conditions. on looking at their terms and conditions, I read this little gem:
"We reserve the right to terminate your account and/or cease to operate the Crowdology platform and provide access to services on the Crowdology platform at any time immediately and without cause and with or without notice."
Bottom line is they will ban you for no reason if they want. I would have liked to have given them a 0-star review but that's not possible
