Before you are able to take studies you will need to verify your account. In order to verify your account you must:
- Verify your account email address
- Verify your phone number via SMS
- Link your PayPal account to your Prolific account.
When signing up you should have received an email from Prolific asking you to verify your email address. Once that's done you can then verify your phone number and link your PayPal address through your Account page.
To verify your phone number you need to enter the number with the country code and no hyphens or spaces etc. e.g. +447450816134
Note that your phone number/email address information is collected for verification purposes only. This information will not be used for marketing purposes in any way unless you explicitly opt-in for marketing.
