    I've just contacted Prolific as well. I got no reply from the researcher to my second message and she still hasn't paid me anything. Will let you know if I hear anything back from them.

    Did anyone try and cash out for yesterday? Hasn't happened for me, hoping it's an everyone issue not a just-me one!

    Hi,


    Unfortunately, there has been an issue with our latest payments via Circle. As a result, your payment due Nov 9th may not have arrived.


    If your payment has arrived you can ignore this message. If not, we're working with Circle to get this resolved as quickly as possible.


    Thank you for your patience, and apologies for this delay.


    Best,


    Your Prolific Team

    I've now had an email confirming a payment received in Circle. I've transferred it to my bank and am crossing my fingers that it arrives

    I had a 3 one the other day but I have to agree that there are lots of tiny ones around and not many higher paying although it is easier to find 5 minutes to do a survey several times a day than an hour in one go.

    My outlook on this is...

    I am unsure if the amount of academic surveys have increased - I am unsure why they should, barring an influx of students, why would they?

    However, I would happily put money that the number of people using Prolific has significantly increased in the 2 years I have been using it. Therefore, there are fewer surveys to go around.

    Also consider this is an academic survey site - and consider where we are in the academic year - the number of available surveys are going to be lower now then in say 6 months.

    More often then not I get a survey a day, of varying lengths, but it is still by far my biggest paying site. Qmee is next, where 15 a month is standard. With Prolific generally 30-40 a month.
