    Prolific Academic - New Survey Alerts

    Prolific Academic - New Survey Alerts 23rd Dec 15 at 1:12 PM
    Hi all, this is a thread dedicated to alerting everyone to new surveys appearing on the Prolific Academic site.

    It's an interesting and well paid survey site, which also means they're popular and become fully subscribed very quickly!

    I love the site, but find their own survey notifications a wee bit hit and miss and most of us don't have time to repeatedly check the site during the day on the off chance of finding available surveys. We won't all be eligible for the same surveys, but a quick 'heads up' when we do see one may make checking for surveys just a little bit more profitable and worthwhile for each other.

    No rules, just subscribe and post when you see them to spread the joy!

    Additionally, if you're planning on signing up to the site, please be sure to pop over to the referral thread to use someone else's link, before posting your own.

    Usually a couple of days, sometimes as long as 21 days though.

    On your next survey the last page usually has a completion URL which links back to prolific and marks the survey as complete, so follow that. If something goes wrong, then you can follow the tab on the original page that says I'm finished but that won't give you a completion code. It's a failsafe.

    I don't think it really matters, as I think they can also find your studies by your ID but it just helps if it's all there.

    Yes, to avoid fees use circle rather than PayPal.

I felt really uneasy signing up for it on their app, taking a photo of my debit card, telling them its 3 digit number. (I still wonder if that breaks terms and conditions of bank account ??) I made sure I reduced the 2 factor authentification settings down from the 30 default.

    I've cashed out twice using it. It's worked perfectly both times. In fact this week's was received within 24 hours. So I guess that makes me a sceptical convert !

    That sounds a bit dodgy, fluffig, but glad it's worked for you! I hate the Paypal fees, but I like having money in my Paypal account that I can use to pay for things on lots of online sites - keeping it separate from my bank account where it will just be spent on boring necessary everyday things!

    Me too and thanks for the heads up, just changed my settings so I have to put a PIN in for all transactions. It's probably naive of me to think that if Prolific are offering it as a payment option, it's safe.

    Guys! I just did something really d!kheaded! I cashed out via circle.com without setting up a circle account! I know, only I could do something so stupid. I have emailed PA but what, if anything, can I do? Yes, I have already called myself every name you can think of but please, feel free to reproduce them. Gods, I'm dumb!

    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    I don't think PA process the payment for a few days. Set one up now and you should be fine.

    Kendra stopped the payment so I'm not sure circle would have... Have decided to suck up the fee and be paid via PayPal. Phew!

    Thanks!

    Sorry Smodlet I did have a little chuckle. I'm sticking with paypal myself like AprilLady, I don't want my little pennies I earn swallowed up on household stuff

    Smodlet! glad you've sorted it. For those wobbling about whether to use circle, I signed up on the website not the app and it seems like a very similar process to paypal, I certainly didn't need to take pictures of my card. I haven't even looked at the app so it's not a necessary part of the process if you are not happy about using it.

    Aw, Smodlet! We all do things like that from time to time - so quick and easy to press a button on the internet/on your phone and then realise you've done something nuts! Phew - happy you've not lost the cash!

    Thanks for the info GreyAndGold, good to know.
