    Males 18-30 from South/Midlands needed for £50 phone conversation task / 2-3hrs work 1st Aug 17 at 2:19 PM
    Hi everyone

    I recently completed the following project for Appen, and am now attempting to recruit more participants on their behalf.

    As quotas for most demographics have now been reached, you must fulfil the following criteria to take part:
    ∑ Male
    ∑ Aged 18-30
    ∑ Grew up or lived in the Midlands or South of England for more than 10 years
    ∑ Have access to a landline and mobile phone

    The project task involves having 12 five-minute phone conversations with a friend/relative, which will be recorded. This process should take approx 2-3 hours. On successful completion of the calls and an online form, participants will receive £50. (And no charges are incurred in making the calls.)

    I believe you will also need a Paypal account in order to receive your payment.

    As a referrer, I will earn a fee for each person who completes the task having used my unique code on their interest form. My code (RID number) is R106, and the link to the interest form is here.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Just to say that I have completed this task and the two- to three-hour timeframe is very generous. It took me less than 1.5 hours, making the rate of pay very good.

    Does anyone know when we will get paid for completing this task? I'm not registered with Appen and asked to be paid via PayPal. I have emailed to enquire, but have not received a reply.

    Oh, OK. Seems like either they're doing things differently at the moment, or something may have gone wrong. I've just emailed the team member I'm in contact with explaining your situation, so will let you know when I hear something back.

    Just been informed that quotas for most demographics are now reached, so have updated the OP accordingly.

    Thank you for your kind offer. It's too late this time around which is my fault as I am not getting notifications from this site (which I need to fix) and didn't see your message.

    I would gladly be your partner for this task.

    Does not look like I've been able to refer anyone for this yet despite nearly 1500 views. So, please enter my code R106 at the top of your form if you do click through, as it would really help me out.

    Just heard from my contact that 180 participants are still required, but of course you must fulfil all the conditions mentioned in the OP.

    As 120 more participants are still needed, Appen have now increased the payment incentive to £50.
