As you may already know I regularly make around £200 each month with survey sites, and one of my favourites is Prolific Survey. If you enjoy science or want to participate in real scientific studies you’ll love Prolific survey too.
What is Prolific survey
Prolific survey is a scientific crowdsourcing site, researchers post their studies and participants earn rewards for taking part. The studies are usually very interesting and I enjoy knowing that I’m helping with real scientific research.

Why I love Prolific
I love Prolific as they don’t screen you out when you get into a survey like some other sites do. You know when you get what feels like halfway through the survey for them to go .. ‘nah we don’t need your views on things.’ and you wonder why you wasted your time? Well Prolific don’t do that!
When you sign up to Prolific they ask you a boat load of questions but from then on they only offer you studies that are related to you. So no screen outs and wasted time!
What sets Prolific aside from others
Compared to survey sites, Prolific offers a good payment per hour. Often payment is set at £5+ per hour and studies often take no longer than 5-10 mins to complete. The best thing about Prolific is that there are no screen outs! A screen out is where you start a survey but during the pre screening process you are rejected for the survey. As long as you keep your pre screening surveys up to date on Prolific you won’t get screened out of any studies. This saves so much hassle when you’re short of time.
Getting your payout from prolific survey
Payout is simple with Prolific but first you will need to verify your Paypal email address. To do this just go to your account section and click set on your cashout account. You will then be directed to enter your Prolific password and you should be able to connect to you Paypal account from there. If you use a different email address for Paypal to the one on your Prolific account you will be glad to know they don’t need to be the same.
After you have verified your Paypal account with Prolific it’s as easy as clicking a button when you reach £5 in your available balance. Prolific issue payments twice weekly so you should expect to receive your money by the next Tuesday or Friday after requesting your money.
After 4 requests you will instantly be qualified for instant cash outs and that means money in your account instantly!
How to get a steady stream of studies
To get a steady stream of studies on Prolific you will need to keep your pre screening questions up to date, you will also need to keep your prolific score in tact. The more accurate your submissions the better your score will be. The better your score the more studies you will receive. To improve your score you will need to ensure you are completing the studies accurately & reading through the questions thoroughly. They do sometimes throw in some test questions to check you are reading.
