Fulfillment Fee Explained

Research participants are paid the incentive amount advertised by the researcher, less a 5% (or a $1 fulfillment fee whichever is higher). For example, if the cash incentive is $150 you will receive $142.50 via PayPal.

The 5% fulfillment fee is broken up into two components: 

  • Payment Processing Fee - 2.75%
    • Allows Respondent to process quick cash payments

  • Service Fee - 2.25%
    • Allows Respondent to provide respondents with a choice of high paying research studies
    • Allows Respondent to match respondents with appropriate studies using a demographic and occupation algorithm
    • Hosting of respondent profiles 

The deduction of the fulfillment fee is communicated to all participants ahead of beginning the screener survey as seen below.
