    Crowdology - Surveys and possible product testing? 16th Jul 09 at 12:59 PM
    Official MSE Insert:

    Hi, we've launched a Product Testing guide. Check out the other sites you might be interested in.

    Back to kms26's original post...

    -----------

    Hi, Not quite sure where to post this so sorry if it's in the wrong place.

    I got an email from this site Crowdology http://www.crowdology.co.uk/ asking if i wanted to join.

    Members of the Crowdology™ panel take part in surveys about current issues, fun topics as well as give feedback on leading brands and products. Members also get paid for their efforts – usually between £0.50 and £3 per survey, depending on the length of the interview.

    When you have signed up you fill out your profile and it asks if you would be interested in product testing, telephone interviews and keeping a diary type surveys.


    Has anyone else heard of these/joined?

    I've been a member since 2007 and have only earned 45p to date so don't get too excited about this site. I have never been asked to test any products either.

    I only joined today so not sure how they pay. :confused: But you never know could be a good one for some but rubbish for others. :rolleyes:

    YouGov is rubbish for me but others on here have said they earned loads from them so you never know. :confused:

    Once you reach 100 points a payment is made via PayPal.

    As for YouGov, I've been stuck on £36 for months now. Ho hum:rolleyes:.

    You get paid via PayPal which you can redeem once you reach £4.00. I have earned about £24.00 so far. I like these because the surveys are usually only 5-10 mins and I usually get about 40p. The only down side is they do not happen too often. Still better than nothing!

    Yes, I too like Crowdology, I generally get at least one short (5 minutes or so) survey per week for 40p plus intermittent longer surveys which usually pay £1.20-£1.60 depending on length. Being able to cash out at £4 is great, given that the surveys are not that frequent and the money is usually in my Paypal account within 20 minutes. I just wish they had more frequent surveys as they are one of the better payers at the moment ;o)

    Well I thought I would give them a try - so registered, logged in - changed my password and worked my way through the profile questions. It was just ten minutes from clicking the registration link to answering the last question but when I tried to update my profile it told me I was timed out.

    Presumably this means all my info was lost. I have emailed them as it concerns me this is a variation on Lauren @ Lightspeeds oft told comment half way through a survey saying that you are not eligible....

    I wouldn't necessarily assume your information was lost, but even if it was the Crowdology profile questions are not all that many (I've answered reams of separate topic profilers for some panels) if you have to do them again. It is worth perservering as this panel is one of the most hassle-free I belong to ;o)

    Crowdology surveys are usually great to do as they're often quite short, but they've started sending more third party surveys and these ones are longer and I'm screened out more often.

    I posted before on this thread about losing my details part through but it did work and I have been doing the odd survey for them and was up to just over £8 - most surveys are for around 40p upwards - last anything from 2 - 10 mins and they pay promptly. I have also signed up to do a Flora pro-active survey with them and have received my pack plus just over £9 to pay for a cholesterol test at Sainsburys before starting it. I have a query re the vouchers included that I need to email them about (is anyone else doing this? its for four weeks, but I only got two weeks of vouchers) but other than that - I have had no problems with them - unlike other sites!

    I never get a chance to do their surveys- I can only use my computer when I get home at night and when I click the link all the surveys are always filled with Crowdology. Am thinking of leaving now as its just annoying I never get to take part.

    I recently joined and I got the 4 x Flora vouchers and the £18 for cholestoral tests, which is great as they are currently free at Sainsburys! I've been lucky enough to do a few surveys since I joined about 3-4 weeks ago and have earned just over £5 and so have had £23 odd sent to my Paypal account. Great site if you can get to a PC.
