    Prolific Academic - New Survey Alerts July 2017 14th Jul 17 at 3:15 PM
    So after the old thread disappearing, this seems to be the new thread for discussion relating to prolific academy.

    Standard rules please. No abusive posts, no flaming. Lets just make some money, and have some fun.

    Now the Atlantic one appeared for me but ages after this above was posted. No code here too - glad it wasn't just me. My survey was also really slow great gaps in between questions.

    @blackste. You could change the thread title to the same as the old thread, as it would be clearer that it's a thread for survey alerts.

    The title was 'Prolific Academic - New Survey Alerts'.

    Circle have just sent me an email to say they are now doing instant cash outs, so for those that found that problematic, might be worth trying again.

    Is it still free? They have always taken 4 days for me so far, don't know how anyone gets their money within 24 hours; I'd be happy with that. Makes it worth paying PP when they take half an hour. Circle have yet to impress me but I will persevere, assuming I get any more studies.

    Circle take 24 hours to my card (nationwide) but I've added my bank details now to try the 'within one hour' next time.

    I think the time scale depends how long your card usually shows refunds from other retailers etc. IE my friends account takes 3 days to her barclays bank card.

    Another +1 on the NOCODE for the ATLanTiC trial.

    Is it worth messaging the author with this many others already doing so?

    Guess which unlucky person cashed out via Circle about half an hour before they sent the Faster Payments email?

    Ah, well, a Friday cashout normally gets it to my bank account Sunday morning.

    That is still a whole lot quicker than 4 days and on a Sunday too! PP do that but so far, not Circle. At least I now know I'm not the only one who gets a "refund" when they withdraw money.

    I did go into this with Circle a few weeks ago and was told they do not support UK bank accounts, only cards so can only imagine they have had a sudden influx of customers due to PP inflicting fees on us. Here's hoping they don't follow suit.

    Thanks again for all the help with this, y'all.

    I had wondered how much I could earn on PA when I'd signed up late last September. Here's a summary for anyone who is thinking of signing up.

I did have two weeks with nothing in that period as my account had been flagged for an unknown reason. I don't know how many studies I have done as it is too many pages to check now, haven't had any rejections so far.
