    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.

    So how come other people don't even need verification codes, according to what I have read above, Wizzbang? This is just not worth the hassle, imho. I wish to the gods I had never heard of Circle.
    What is this life, if, sweet wordsmith, we have no time to take the pith?

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

    I've just checked my circle account. It's actually the third time I've cashed out using them, not the second . So maybe there's no code once you've done it a couple of times. I certainly haven't needed one today. I also checked the account no. versus card no. question. I obviously did give them my card no but as it's the debit card associated with my bank account it's all the same thing anyway.

    Perfectly smooth and organised transaction - it says it will be in my account at the latest 23rd June but previous ones have been much quicker than 4 days.

    I prefer paypal as once it's in there I can transfer the funds to my bank account instantly. I tried Circle but it took a few days for the payment to clear in my account.

    Yes, I'm beginning to think it is worth the fees just for speed of payment and peace of mind, thanks, all.

    I think when I set up Circle I had to verify with a code then again the first time I logged in after that and I don't think its asked me to again so it might just do it the first few times then probably just once every so often after that.

    Don't really want to prolong the agony of all this but I've just looked at my settings in Circle and see that you can change the amount below which they won't send you codes. Mine is set at £30 which is probably why I haven't been asked to enter codes. Might be worth checking your settings Smodlet and changing them to a higher amount. I always cash out at around £20 so never trigger the authorisation codes.

    I would say that figure is certainly obtainable in 5 1/2 years.

    After a glut of surveys over lunch its all gone a little quiet!

Once i had done it a few times it didn't ask anymore on my PC. Was asking me for a code today when I tried to login on my tablet and that was juts to log in not to do anything.

    Thats the one. Not going to complain for £7 - not like Ive anything important on there.

    Amusingly I got a word cloud which said the main topics which were things like "Tories, Lies, May = Thatchers Horcrux" etc
