This month ive managed to make £30 with prolific filling out surveys but seems to be real slow with any more coming in. Anyone else found they have had little surveys?

I have noticed them also, I don't see the point in one person surveys. I also had one come up where the description said you'll be in a zoom call with another person who uses Prolific, don't like the idea of that at all haha.

I've gone from 30 months of £80+ to last month £25 and this month so far I've only picked up a few plus a few that where multi stage over a few months. Really hope it's more to do with time of year/research budgets running out than a sign of things to come.

This month is incredibly slow. I was thinking the same, must be because its coming end of year and we all know what this year has been like. Fingers crossed it'll pick back up again as it was a nice little earner

oft im sitting at £34 so doing a little better i might reach £40 by the end of the month if i am lucky
Only just done my first survey in the last week and a half. Many of the people i talk to have also said its been a very slow month. Ive found most my surveys have been for 1 person which is a real pain.

Must be a end of year thing so far I've only had 3 surveys all of which where from 12 or 6 month multi-part surveys. Usually I could easily grab enough for £1 a day without spending all day in front of the comp. I'm now happy if I can make min payout total this month.

I've managed to make a whopping £1.50 currently this month, I doubt I'll be able to make £5 as back to work. Must be end of year, will have to see
