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

    I didn’t realise there was a thread for this....will try to remember to check/post!

    Plenty of students working through the holidays........
    I completed 12 studies (out of 16 offered) on Thursday and 8 studies (out of 10 offered) yesterday with £26 out of £32 already approved

    Before Thursday I hadn’t had time to check the site since before Christmas.
    I always find I get a lot more studies when I haven’t used the site in a couple weeks.

    It's worth having in a background window, or using the Prolific Assistant for alerts. There seems to be a lot at once and then it goes a bit quiet. But maybe I'm checking at the wrong times.
    I've been waiting until I get £20 and withdrawing through Circle for no fees.

    I never realised there was a thread for this!
    I've been using Prolific for about 6 months or so, been steadily earning about £20 a month until December. I've been on £12.60 since about December 17th

    Explanation of Prolific withdrawal amount
    Hi Everyone,

    I waited until I have earned £20 and then made a withdrawal through Paypal. The amount I received was £19.28. Does anyone know why it wasn't the full amount? I wondered if it was something to do conversion rates between the pound and dollar?

    Thank you in advance.

    Withdrawals through PayPal are charged, I believe, 2.9% + 20p. To withdraw an amount that ends up over £20 after fees, you need to have a balance of around £20.80, off the top of my head.

    Withdrawals through Circle, on the other hand, don't attract any fees IIRC.

    Make £2019 in 2019 - £191.79/£2019

    2019 totals
    Swagbucks - £75 | Prolific Academic - £20.74 | Qmee - £20
