Ethical rewards

On Prolific, we endorse the principle of 'ethical rewards'. That is, we stipulate that researchers compensate participants with at least £5 (~6.50€ / $7.50) per hour.


We charge 12.5% on each reward + 10p per participant. Sound complicated? It isn't! Try calculating your cost with our cost calculator.

We can refund any unused balance at anytime.
