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 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.

Never Qualified; Annoying reCaptchas

January 4, 2019 by Paul from United States

JANUARY 2019 UPDATE: If you don't think it's possible for a bad situation to worsen, try this one. You respond to email invitations, don't qualify, and then have to endure over a dozen, sometimes nearly 20, successive survey screen-outs. Since they already have your profile, you'd think that this bunch could use that profile to pre-screen, but no. This one is an absolute waste of time.
SEPTEMBER UPDATE: You can redeem by PayPal, but you get no email confirmation. You also cannot see on the website a record of your awards and redemptions. They just subtract your points and leave you hanging. Support? No phone number to call. Just email them and wait. And wait.
UPDATE: This one has gotten much worse of late. They still make you endure repetitious captchas, but now you endure being disqualified from not one, not two, not three, but four, five, six, seven eight surveys in succession over and over again. They supposedly already have your basic profile, and we are mystified as to why they don't use it to pre-screen better. It is therefore taking far too long to accrue points.
It seems needlessly annoying, grating, ridiculous, wasteful, tedious, and user-unfriendly to mulishly insist on a sequence of 7, or 8, or 9, or 10 or more successive reCaptcha requirements to log in to this site. They must think there are a lot of impostors trying to rip members off for their 88 cent rewards.

One of the best - Not anymore

December 19, 2018 by sam from United Kingdom

I will update my review based on recent events.

Around the start of September 2018, I tried logging into my account as normal but got errors. I contacted Crowdology support and they said my account has been banned.

Now, the only thing this could have been was a week prior to being banned, I took a survey that was buggy and had scripting problems. It was something like 15 minutes for 80p. 2 minutes into the survey I was disqualified. Instead of pushing me out back to the CINT survey finder, it wrongly redirected me to the survey completion page. Due to the system thinking I completed a 15 minute survey in 2 minutes, my account was flagged and I was banned.

I explained this to Crowdology who looked into it and saw I hadn't breached any terms or conditions and they asked CINT to reopen my account. A month passed and they said they were still waiting for CINT.

I contacted CINT direct and explained all this to them, I wanted all my CINT panel accounts to be reopened (Survey goo, panel champ, crowdology and opini). They said they were investigating.

Every few weeks I would contact them again and be told the same thing about them investigating.

Recently I said if they don't complete the investigation soon, I am going have to report them to trading standards, as at very least I want my balance's paid. No response at all.

Absolutely disgusting behaviour especially considering I had been a completely loyal and genuine member for 3 years.

Glad I wasn't the only person who got banned!

November 30, 2018 by Shaina from United States

After reading some of the reviews on here, I realized that I wasn't the only one that got my account terminated. I asked them if there was a possibility that if I could get my account reinstated, and I never got a response. That's how badly they want to get rid of people and won't give them another chance. Avoid this company at all cost!

I would give this company just zero stars if possible! Forget about 0.5. They randomly banned accounts for insufficient reasons. It joins and ranks in the list with Harris Poll for deplorable, worst survey companies ever! ! ! ! That is why you don't ever see them on this site's yearly best survey lists as of yet because they absolutely SUCK, and is too arrogant to even accept new members much less allow you to even create another account!! They're aren't worthy of new members anyway or any merit of your time...

Stay away from this site

November 26, 2018 by lilly from United States

I have made few bucks with them and now when I wanted to cash out this time they blocked my account.

I tried to email them but they just lie and they don't have any logical thing to say. They told me that my account was flagged. OK.If it was flagged for literally no reason then what about the money I earned? Do they gonna return it to the survey companies? NO.So please don't endorse these type of websites. Try to stay away from them and if you have account with them try to cash out and close it.

Waste of time

November 7, 2018 by Matthew from United States

I joined about 30 days ago .took 3 or 4 surveys ,had no problem with those. As my balance got closer to 8 dollar cash out threshold,things went downhill. I took 2 shorter surveys , finished them. No money was credited to my account. Final straw just spent hour on a survey for 2.50 ,got to very end it said we're sorry you don't qualify. Needless to say ,no longer wasting my time on this site.
