The length of a survey depends on the subject matter and type of survey you are completing. Most of our surveys and opinion polls take between 5 and 15 minutes - perfect for a coffee break, between meetings, or the bus ride home.
Market research subject matter can vary, but we try to ensure our surveys are quick and fun to complete. Most studies focus on everyday topics, products and services, and popular issues, which often get coverage in the news, magazines, and other media.
Not at all, you have full control over which market research you take part in. We aim to invite our community members to participate in research they will find interesting, based on their profile information, and we pay cash incentives for every survey completed. There is no obligation to answer every survey offered, and you are welcome to participate as much or as little as you like.relevant to their interests based on their profile information.
The more profile information you provide, the more survey opportunities you will receive that are relevant to your interests and lifestyle. We aim to match the number of survey invitations sent by email with your level of interest in completing them. For survey opportunities at any time of day, simply login to your Crowdology account and choose from a list of surveys pre-selected for you, or search for new surveys matching your profile by clicking the ‘find a survey’ button on your dashboard.
We aim to invite you to answer surveys that match your demographic and interests. You can help us by completing your profile accurately and keeping it up to date, to ensure we offer targeted surveys that are bespoke to you.
Crowdology is an online panel where registered community members complete paid surveys for market research. Researchers from businesses, agencies, education, media, and government, contact us to gather information and opinions from our community, who represent the diverse demographics of the population.
Market research is the activity of gathering information about consumers' needs and preferences. The opinions and information gathered are used by organisations to shape their products and services.
When you redeem your rewards to PayPal, a 2% PayPal transaction fee (a few cents) will be deducted from the total you receive. As there are no processing fees for Tremendous Rewards, including Amazon and Virtual VISA, the amount you receive will be same value as the rewards you redeemed.
Your Crowdology and PayPal email addresses need to be the same. If your PayPal account uses a different email address, please add your Crowdology email as an additional payment address in your PayPal account settings. PayPal allows multiple email addresses to pay into the same account.
We exclusively use PayPal for cash payments because it’s efficient, popular, and well-respected. If you want to withdraw your cash via PayPal, you will need a personal PayPal account. It’s free and simple to set up – please visit the PayPal website for more information. Don’t worry if you’ve already cashed out without creating an account, PayPal will contact you with instructions to help you set up an account to receive your payment.
You will have the option to cash out your rewards to PayPal when you have a minimum of $8 in your account (up to a maximum of $12.50 per transaction), or $10 for Tremendous Rewards, including Amazon Gift Cards and Virtual VISA. PayPal transfers appear in your account within 1-4 business days of request. During processing, payments will be listed in your Crowdology account transaction history as ‘pending’, and this status will update to ‘success’ as soon as the payment is complete. The email to claim your Tremendous Rewards will arrive in your inbox within 5 business days, and the link will be valid for 5 years from that day. The first time you redeem your rewards, the payment may take longer to process. This is due to extra security measures in our systems to protect you from fraud and ensure rewards are paid to the correct person.
Your can redeem your rewards in cash via PayPal, or exchange them for Tremendous Rewards to choose from over 120 different rewards, including Amazon vouchers and Virtual VISA cards, in three easy steps:
  1. Login to your account
  2. Open the “Rewards” page to view your balance
  3. Select “PayPal" or "Tremendous" to redeem your rewards via your preferred method
Payments are sent to the same email address that you use to receive surveys. A link to claim your Tremendous Rewards will be sent directly to your inbox (please check your junk folder too). Simply click the link to access the Tremendous catalogue and choose your reward. PayPal transactions are sent to the PayPal account registered with your Crowdology email address. If your PayPal account uses a different email address, you will need to add your Crowdology email as an additional payment address in your PayPal account settings. PayPal allows multiple email addresses to pay into the same account.
Simply follow these steps to check your rewards balance and transaction history:
  1. Login to your Crowdology account
  2. Open the “Rewards” page to view your balance
  3. Click the “View your transaction history” link underneath your balance to see a list of recent transactions
  4. Check the boxes for types of transactions you wish to view
Rewards are instant for most online surveys, and you will see them added to your balance upon completion. However, some survey providers pay rewards after completing a quality assurance process. For these surveys, you will be shown a message upon completion advising you when the incentives will be credited to your account. If you successfully completed a survey and the reward has not been added to your balance and the end page didn’t confirm when the reward will be paid, please contact our support team using the Contact US form below.
Yes, every survey you fully complete will earn a cash reward. Our regular surveys are relevant to everyone; however, sometimes a specific profile is needed, and the survey will ask a few screening questions to check if you fit the criteria. You will not be paid for answering the quick screening questions, for example, “what brand of cell phone do you own?” If you are screened out, this information will not be used.
We want to be realistic, and we know that taking paid online surveys is not going to make you a millionaire (or us - we’re not sitting in the Bahamas writing this!). Our aim is to provide an enjoyable way for our community of registered panelists to make a little extra cash while shaping the products and services of the future. Rewards vary depending on the length and type of survey you complete. Our multi-day diary studies pay up to $10 and you could earn even more for focus groups. Most of our quick coffee-break surveys pay from 50 cents to $2.50. These surveys are more frequent, enabling you to quickly build your reward balance.
At Crowdology, we believe in keeping our reward payments simple and transparent. Every survey has a cash incentive stated at the beginning, along with the estimated time it will take to answer. After you complete the survey, the cash incentives are credited to your Crowdology account. You can cash out your rewards to PayPal from as little as $8, or exchange your cash for Tremendous Rewards, for every $10 earned.
To change the email associated with your Crowdology account, please contact our support team using the Contact Us link below. Remember to include your current email address as well as the new email you would like to use for your account.
No, having more than one Crowdology account would damage survey results. We trust you understand why this is not allowed. We reward our members fairly for taking part in market research, providing they are honest with their responses. Our systems perform regular checks to identify and remove multiple account entries and prevent duplicate participation in surveys. We also undertake quality assurance checks on completed surveys before paying out rewards. Members who don’t abide by these rules risk forfeiting their rewards and may have their accounts suspended or permanently closed. This is made clear in our Terms of Use, which you accept on registration.
You may still complete surveys and earn rewards even if you haven’t completed your full profile. However, a completed profile means you will be offered more targeted surveys that are relevant to your lifestyle and interests.

We hope you stay with us, but if you no longer wish to participate then you are free to close your account at any time. Each survey invite includes a link to unsubscribe at the footer of the email. You can also cancel your membership from the Account settings while logged in to your Crowdology dashboard, or by contacting our support team using the Contact Us tab at the bottom of this page. Please ensure you have redeemed any rewards above the payment threshold. When you unsubscribe your account, all personal details are deleted, and we will not be able to pay you any outstanding balance. Re-joining Crowdology at a later date will not reinstate previously accumulated rewards, and rewards cannot be carried forward into a new account.
When registering with Crowdology we ask for basic demographic information to be able to offer targeted, suitable surveys. If you choose, you can also provide more detailed profile information, such as whether you drive a car, have children, or own a property.
