Pureprofile is a survey company that I have written about before here. They have a low cashout threshold of £25 and a Pureprofile payment should arrive within 28 days.
I personally cashout 4 or 5 times a year, and as such this is a real ‘slow burner’ for me. I only visit infrequently so I feel that this cashout amount could be improved upon, with the right survey demographics.
When I logged in recently I noticed that there was now a message on the homepage advising me that the Pureprofile payment terms are now 30 business days. It clearly states that this does not include weekends or bank holidays.
How long does it take to get a Pureprofile payment?
A change from 28 days to 30 business days means that a Pureprofile payment may now take up to 17 days longer.
30 business days over the Christmas period could lead to a cashout on the 1st of December not being received until mid January.
30 business days in a month without bank holidays may mean that a 1st of the month cashout won’t arrive until the 10th of the following month.
Despite this change, which may mean a longer wait for payment, I still feel that *Pureprofile is a website worth joining.
If you were only to complete higher paying surveys you should still cashout a few times a year. Not bad! I will be continuing with Pureprofile. For now at least. Slow burning websites are not to be overlooked and add up over the year.
Are Pureprofile surveys worth my time?
Completing purveys on *Pureprofile is never going to make you rich alone. However, I’m a member of around 20 websites where I just achieve a few cashouts a year. This adds up to Christmas completely paid for, and a holiday or two along the way too!
Looking for some other ways to make money online?
There are LOTS of survey companies to sign up to. Also, there are lots of other ways to make money online that I’m a fan of. I love matched betting, mystery shopping, taking part in paid focus groups and lots more!

I'm using Pureprofile in Australia and it's my first time too. I'm currently waiting for my first $50 to be paid out and actually emailed Customer service asking how long it'll take and they said up to 30 days but I should get it before then as that's worse case they said.. Will see if what I was told is correct although I have made enough since I redeemed for my next $50 so Pureprofile is worth the wait. It's just dissapointing after you do so many surveys to wait for your redemption especially when other companies have transferred to my paypal within the hour after I redeemed! Others about 3 days however that is including PayPal to process transaction too. Only other company that takes 3 weeks for me was Toluna but they are worth the wait as it's fast to get points if you're the right demographic of course.

ToLuna in the UK are AWFUL! They started to take 10+ weeks just to get a £10-£15 voucher, so I stopped using them.
It is so frustrating having to wait isn't it!
Thanks for taking the time to comment.
