This FAQ guides you through the process of receiving payment upon completion of a study.
Why wasn't I paid for the multiple choice survey I answered?
The multiple choice surveys taht you take when you apply to a study are unpaid. They are used only to see whether or not you qualify for a study. For example, if a client is looking for ice cream fanatics, the multiple choice survey may ask you how many times you have had ice cream in the past month.
The actual survey involves recording your responses to questions via webcam. If you are accepted to a study, you will be notified by email and the study will appear under the "Active Studies" header on your dashboard.
I just completed a study and have not been paid. What is going on?
Our system automatically pays you 24 hours after you post your response to a study. This gives us time to review your answers and make sure that there aren't any problems with your recording.
If it has been more than 24 hours since you logged your response, email us at Support@mindswarms.com and we will look into it.
