Payment and Rewards

Earn £1.00 for Every 5 Minutes

Populuslive gives its members the opportunity to earn £1.00 for every 5 minutes they spend on a survey. Depending on the length, most surveys pay between 1 to 3 points each (1 point = £1.00) and take usually about 5 to 15 minutes to finish. Please note that rewards will only be credited to your account once the survey is closed. This could range from one day to three months, depending on the research and nature of the study.

Cash in at £50.00

Once you have accumulated 50 points (£50.00) you are eligible to request a cheque or a BACS payment at the next payment date. The payment date is at the end of each month and if you requested a cheque, it will arrive within two weeks after this date. BACS payments typically take a few days to arrive. On average, Populuslive issues 3000 monthly cheques to members who have reached the threshold for payment.

Survey Taking Experience

Survey Taking Details

Surveys with Populuslive are designed to be interesting and varied on subject matter. Most members will receive about two survey invitations weekly to express their opinions and insights on a given topic. Participate early! Once survey space is filled, you will not be able to answer.

Monthly Prize Draws

Each time you screen out of a survey - which may happen if you do not meet the required participant profile, you will be automatically entered into the monthly prize draw of £250. The draw will take place on the second Monday of each calendar month and winners are notified within 4 weeks of the draw taking place.

Eligibility: Open to residents of the UK only. 16+

Great surveys and speedy payment

October 4, 2021 by Louise from United Kingdom

Populus are a great survey brand and site. The surveys are always interesting and relevant to you and perhaps the current political situation, something that has been in the news or a product the suppliers are looking for customer feedback on.
As a customer my privacy is protected with Populus under the GDPR rules and I feel safe when I am completing the surveys.
I have just received my second payment of £50 from Populus this time using their new payment system of a bank transfer which was seamless and quick. Thank you very much Populus 🥳
I am now continuing with surveys to reach payment three, I hope the surveys pick up soon not many.
I highly recommend Populus

I recently reached the £50 cashout threshold and received my funds via their BACs method which has been introduced to the withdrawal options. It worked as BACs should and was paid into my bank as expected. All good

Simply the Best

Unlike some other survey sites they don’t waste your time with surveys that don’t complete. Surveys are interesting, easy to complete and understand. Rewards are good and clearly presented and made.
