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.

They pay within minutes of requesting it. Great panel! And all surveys have a decent payout.

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.
