Along with the sad news that Circle users would no longer be able to cashout on Prolific Academic (due to Circle closing down on 26th June 2019), there’s some good news for those of us cashing out to Paypal.

Prolific Academic now testing INSTANT Paypal cashout!

One of the bugbears most of us have about GPT and survey sites is the fact that once we’ve reached that hard earned cashout threshold, we then have to wait to receive our payment. Of course, in the case of sites such as InstaGC, this isn’t the case to a certain point, but with many sites a wait of up to 10 working days can be possible.

Prolific Assistant – Get alerted to new studies on Prolific

One of the biggest gripes in our Facebook Group about Prolific is the lack of studies, or missing out on studies. Unfortunately, Prolific doesn’t send emails alerting people of available studies, and they often fill up very quickly meaning that no matter how often you check in, you’re always just missing out. There are various options out there to remedy this problem, but the easiest option on a desktop / laptop is the Chrome extension Prolific Assistant. The Prolific Assistant […]

An open letter to Prolific Academic

*** EDITED TO ADD: Credit where credit is due, Prolific reached out to me not only here but also on Reddit, Facebook and by PM and email, and their response was brilliant. They hadn’t removed posts on Reddit at all, there was a delay in them showing and I jumped the gun – sorry guys!
