How long does a YouGov cashout take?

As I have recently received another cashout YouGov I decided to look back through my tax spreadsheets. I can see, at a glance, how long each of my YouGov cashouts has taken. My last Yougov cashout took just 11 days and I received my £50 cashout via bank transfer.

Prior to that my previous Yougov cashouts took 30 days, 27 days, 15 days and 24 days. YouGov state that their cashout terms are 1 month and so far I have never had a YouGov cashout that was later than one month. I have been a member of the YouGov panel for quite a few years now and have had a considerable amount of £50 cashouts from them in that time. *Everyone is welcome to sign up with YouGov for free and get earning!

How long does a YouGov cashout take to arrive?

On average YouGov surveys take around five to seven minutes to complete. They are on a wide range of topics. The majority of surveys cover politics, products, brands, product affairs and more.

I find that each of the surveys is quite and easy to complete. They don’t put me out at all. I enjoy politics. It is always nice to give my opinion on subjects that I really enjoy.

The reward for YouGov surveys ranges from 25p upwards. On average a five to seven-minute survey is worth 50p. I find that I can complete the surveys quicker than this. While this is a slow burner it still adds up throughout the year.

If you do not want to provide your bank account details then you can choose to receive payment via Paypal. I have done this before, for convenience. My Paypal withdrawal took 27 days. It doesn’t seem to speed things up at all.

      Hi Jack – payments are via bank transfer or cheque.

        Sorry Katy, I cant believe you have had several payouts in a few months, it just does not work that way. You need 5000 points for a payout and the surveys are 50 points when and if they do come in. You Gov does not give out surveys every day, so god only knows how you were raking in that much.

          Nowhere in the post you’ve commented on does it say that I received ‘several payouts in a few months’. It says “I have been a member of the YouGov panel for quite a few years now and have had a considerable amount of £50 cashouts from them in that time.” I have made lots of money in the time I’ve been with YouGov, as I earn from the 50-125 point surveys and they sometimes offer focus groups too. The post you’re commenting on was written back in 2015, and hasn’t been updated with my earnings since, however my website has posts based on my own experiences on, not those of others.

          There is a second YouGov post on this website ( which clearly states “I receive £50 3 or 4 times per year so it is a slow burner but definitely worthwhile as they do genuinely payout. I’m typically receiving 3-5 surveys per week. The surveys are short and very simple to complete. They usually ask a few questions at the end, with regards to upcoming surveys. This is to save you filling out numerous unpaid surveys and profile surveys over and over again.”

          I hope that clears up your own misunderstanding.

    You have done well. I have been with Yougov for over 10 years and have only had one payout. I estimate I am about five or six pounds away from my second 50 pound payment!

      Ahh that’s a shame isn’t it! I’ve certainly found it has slowed down a little since I last updated this post. I concentrate more on Prolific Academic and similar sites!

    Hi I redeemed my first £50 on the 15th of April and it’s 8th of may now i haven’t had the £50 yet do you know how I can contact them thanks

    • katykicker May 8, 2019 / 3:15 pm

      Payments are listed as being processed, by BACS, within 1 month of the request. So you’re not at this stage yet, as you’d need to allow potentially 3-5 working days on top of that. However, you can reach YouGov by visiting their Contact US page and raising a ticket:

        Hello!!! I redeemed my point on the 27th of October 2019. Am yet to receive alert from yougov.
        Do you have any idea when I will receive the money in my bank account

        • katykicker November 21, 2019 / 9:28 pm

          Hello! It’s around 28-30 working days, so I’d say by the 6th of December!

    Hi Katy,

    I did alot of surverys for yougov and reached the $100 bank transfer (100,000 points) I have been doing this for about a year and I wasn’t sure if bank transfer was legit. Do you know how long it takes to receive the cashout now? (In United States)

    • katykicker November 15, 2019 / 10:48 am

      Hello! I believe it is within 28 days, the same as the UK! Enjoy your cashout!
