How long does a YouGov cashout take?

I have been a member of YouGov for several years now, LOTS of years in fact! As I recently requested another cashout I thought it was time to talk about how long, on average, a YouGov cashout takes.

My latest YouGov cashout took just 11 days to arrive. In the past I have had cashouts that have took everything from 15 days right up to 30 days!

YouGov currently state that their cashout terms are 1 month and so far I have never had a YouGov cashout that was later than this.

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!

Are YouGov surveys worth my time?

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.

Want to know how to cashout on YouGov? Want to know how to withdraw money from YouGov?

You’ll need 5000 points, £50.00 worth, before you can cashout. Once you’ve hit this then just heard to the redemptions page to get your cashout processed.

I know this is quite a large amount, especially given that most of the surveys are lower paying, but even 1 or 2 cashouts a year are better than nothing!

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)

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

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

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:

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!
