How many surveys can I do?

You can participate in as many of the surveys we send you as you like, (though each survey can only be completed once), whenever you like, provided you are eligible to participate. However, different surveys run for different lengths of time, so it's best to participate early to avoid disappointment: once a survey is closed or enough people with a certain profile have completed a survey, it can no longer be completed.
There is no set amount of surveys you receive in any given time period. Suitable panellists are selected at random for a survey, so you may receive many in quick succession or similarly you may go a while without receiving one.

Do your surveys have quality control checks?

In order to ensure that you give careful consideration to each question before answering, we have added quality control checks to all of our surveys. Points are not accredited to your accounts if your answers are illogical or if a minimum amount of time has not been spent taking part in a survey. These inbuilt quality control questions appear on every survey and are administered to everyone equally.

What should I do if I can't access a survey?

If you can't access a survey for any reason (if getting security warnings from your browser, or being asked for authentification information, for example), then try pasting the link to the survey directly into your browser. If that doesn't help, then please send us an email stating which browser you were using along with the survey invite email you received.

What is the information used for?

All surveys are conducted under the ESOMAR code of Conduct. Survey results are used for research purposes only and you will not receive any communication from 3rd party organisations as the results are only ever presented as average scores e.g. 8 / 10 people in Ireland are happy with their current job. (See "What happens to my answers?")

What happens to all my answers?

Your answers will be pooled with all the other responses to the survey and analysed as average scores, often these results are published in the national press or reported on current affairs programmes.

How much do I earn for each survey?

The amount you are paid for each survey will depend upon the average length of time it takes to complete the questionnaire; Typically RedClive pays €1 for every 5 minutes you spend completing online surveys, provided the survey is completed accurately and in full, and takes an acceptable amount of time to complete (based on the average length of completion time.)

When will I be paid my money?

Once you have accumulated 50 points we will send you a cheque or virtual card for €50 at the next payment date. Thereafter, with each 50 points you accumulate we will make a further payment of €50.

Payment dates: Please note that payment will only be made when your account has reached a minimum of €50.

The payment process works as follows:

If on the 29th of September your account shows €48 and on the 3rd of October your account shows €53, your payout of €50 will be actioned at the end of October and paid to you within two weeks of the date actioned.

Please also note that your reward account will only be credited with points earned on a survey once that survey is closed. This might be after as little as 1 day, or as long as 3 months, as different surveys run for different lengths of time.
