I am a newbie. When I started, if you didn't qualify, you didn't get paid. It drove me nuts like many of you, but I understand the reasoning why I didn't get paid. But now, on some surveys I can get a penny!!! It may not be much, but somehow it really lessons the aggravation of answering so many questions only to find that I don't qualify.  Thank you FC!!!   ;D

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. 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?

Yes. I'd pay the plumber for her/his time and fuel for their vehicle driving out to my home  :thumbsup: Wouldn't you  :icon_rr:?

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).

Yes, I agree some of the other sites do credit you for attempting surveys but not qualifying but not this one. I sure wish they would.

It is frustrating but it's a chance you take doing this.

This has been an ongoing topic for months if not years. Perhaps a boycott until such a deal was offered would be in order. Sometimes, I think the information the surveyers are really looking for is in the prequalifying questions and the payment is just a scam that is not really going to happen.
