Setting your Incentive

Setting your Incentive Where do I say how much I'm going to pay participants? What about compensation?

The Incentive is the amount of compensation you intend to provide the research participants for their participation. The incentive is essential to the success of a project and will depend on the length of the project, what type of project it is, and who you are intending to have participate. 

Setting up and Editing the Incentive

The Incentive can be set up when creating a project on the  Details Page. 

  1. Create a New Project or edit a Draft Project
  2. Under the "Details" section, locate the "Incentive" section
  3. Select the dollar amount you want to pay each participant for their time.
