Yes if you do the FC Surveys they do compensate you 1 penny for attempting them and getting through the initial qualification. But not for the daily surveys. But I do agree with what some of the others have said. You get paid for your opinion, so if you don't qualify for some of them, then they have already met their needs for whatever classifications you may fall under or for whatever reasons. They are not going to pay you for not qualifying to take the survey.
While I agree entirely, what I've read others complaining about is in this thread's subject title, (regarding getting paid to prequalify). In trying to see this from the survey provider's perspective, they view the prequalifying and qualifying processes as vetting applicants. People who apply for jobs, (being vetted for a job but, not working there yet), don't expect to be paid for completing the interview, (unless they are hired), much less for discovering during
an interview that they're not qualified for the job.
Re-examining the survey qualification process from that viewpoint, survey applicants often get paid when they complete the survey but, those who don't want to be paid for going to the job interview? Frankly, I'm surprised FC offers the one cent for not
qualifying ... we can not-qualify a bunch of times.
How would that be of any service to them. If you hired a plumber to fix a leaking pipe, but he was not able to fix it, would you pay him?
While I've come across only one or two sites which offered an 'incremental' payment for going through a prequalifying process and another incremental payment should the survey be completed, these remain rare. It mostly happens with "lengthy" surveys, (which seem to be those estimated to take over 25 minutes to complete - not counting the time it takes to prequalify).
