I didn’t pass validation, what do I do?
All registrants are put through a multi-level validation program that makes sure we have all the necessary information to confirm your registration.

How do I participate in a survey?
Once you click on your registration confirmation email, we will verify your healthcare credentials and activate your membership. Once activated, you will receive invitations via firstname.lastname@example.org for surveys that we think you will qualify for and enjoy. You can also find surveys under the “Available surveys” tab inside the OpinionSite portal. The more comprehensive your profile, the more invitations you are likely to receive.

How does the sunshine act impact my participation?
- Online Surveys: Because payments to physicians for participating in pharmaceutical and medical device marketing research are typically made by research companies, in this case by OpinionSite, rather than manufacturer-sponsors, and to health care professionals whose identities are unknown to the manufacturer-sponsors, those payments are, in most cases, excluded from reporting under the Sunshine Act law: SEC. 1128G (e)(10)(A). In the rare circumstance in which your payment needs to be reported to the manufacturer sponsors and subsequently to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, InCrowd will do so in accordance with our terms and conditions.
- Interviews: There is a slim chance that during an interview a member might accidentally give their name or may be recognizable by voice. Because of this remote chance, we err on the side of caution, and you will be prompted to agree to the Sunshine Act before the interview.
What is my responsibility as a member?
As a member of our research network, we ask that you provide honest and complete information as part of your profile and include clear, and timely responses to the surveys and interviews that you participate in. You can participate in as many or as few surveys as you would like. If you would like to participate, please respond to surveys as soon as you receive an invitation and give thoughtful, clear responses to questions.
How can I update my information?

Some items will need to be updated by team member, if you need assistance, email firstname.lastname@example.org..

I forgot my username/password. What should I do?
If you forget your username, it is the email address you receive survey invites to. If you cannot remember which email you used or you cannot remember your password, contact our support team at email@example.com.
How do I unsubscribe?
Members can unsubscribe at any time. Every survey invitation will include an immediate unsubscribe link which will stop emails coming to your email address. In addition, you can discontinue your membership at any time by visiting your member portal and selecting Preferences and Settings > Manage My Account > Select Disable My Account.
How long will it take me to answer each survey?
The methodology and length of each individual survey will vary. Your invitation will clearly state the type of study, how long we think it will take you to complete, and the compensation amount offered for your time.
How often will I get surveys?
Survey invitations are dependent upon survey availability and your professional background and specialty. To ensure you are invited to surveys relevant to you, check that your account details– specifically your provider id (NPI, GMC, RPPS, etc., if applicable), state license number, specialty, practice setting, and years of experience–are complete and correct.
How will I be compensated when I answer a survey?
You will earn rewards every time you answer a Survey. Once you’ve hit your minimum redemption threshold, an email will be sent notifying you. You can also log in and review your Payments tab for balances and more at any time. You may make the selection to receive an e-gift card via Tango or PayPal any time you redeem your rewards. If you select PayPal, make sure your payment email is reflective of your PayPal email address.
When will I receive payment for my interview?
Payment for completed interviews will be added to your account once all interviews are completed and the project has concluded.
I haven’t received my rewards payment. What should I do?
Your rewards should immediately appear in your account at the conclusion of most surveys. For surveys which have required follow-up activities, your rewards will be available once you have completed all requirements (such surveys will be clearly labeled in their invitations).
If you feel you are missing compensation in your account, please submit a request here with the title “Missing Reward”. When submitting your request, please include the following information for the quickest response: Survey ID, Topic, Survey/Interview Date. If you received any error message while participating, please include that as well.
How can I find out how much I’ve earned in rewards?
To see how much you have earned log in to your account and click on the ‘Payments’ tab in your account.
How do I cash out my rewards?
You can cash out via PayPal or Tango. You need to be a member of our network for at least 48 hours and you can only redeem once per day. Below is an explanation of both payment options:
- Tango: Tango is a website that allows you to choose from several e-gift card options, including Amazon, iTunes and many more. You do not need to create a Tango account. Your e-gift card code will be sent to the payment email listed under the Payments tab on your account.
- PayPal: You must have a PayPal account and have the email associated with your PayPal account be the same one you list as your payment email address in your profile. When using PayPal, you can cash out any amount within your unredeemed balance. Adding a mailing address to your PayPal account makes certain there will be no delay in receiving your rewards. You should see the payment within 24 hours.
Tango and PayPal payments will be sent immediately. You can check your email account for an email from Tango or log into your PayPal account and see the transferred funds. We absorb all PayPal fees.
I didn’t receive my tango e-gift card.
Check your Spam or Junk folder. Occasionally mail servers misclassify the email with the e-gift card link as spam. If you do not see a message from Tango in your spam folder, please reach out to support and we will resend it or forward it to a new email address.
Can you send rewards via check/cheque?
No, we do not offer checks as a method of redemption. Please choose the payment method that works best for you. Tango offers e-gift card selections. PayPal will send redeemed rewards directly to your PayPal account.
Do I need to pay taxes on my rewards? (US Members)
If you redeem $600 or more of your earned rewards in a calendar year, we will send you a W9 tax form to the same email used for your log in. We are required to collect these forms by the federal government, and we may need to prevent future redemptions if we do not receive a requested form. You do not need to reach out to us to know if you are obligated to submit a form, we’ll reach out to you if you’ve met that $600 threshold. You can, however, always track earned and redeemed rewards under the ‘Payments’ tab of your account.
Is there a referral program?
Yes, we have a Refer a Colleague program for our members. You may become eligible for the program once you’ve been a member for at least three months and have completed multiple surveys. Once eligible you’ll have access to a new tab in the portal with information about the program and a unique referral link.
I am missing some of my referral bonus.
Referred colleagues must participate in two surveys before the referral bonus is added to your account. Two business days after the referred member has completed their second survey, the bonus will go into each of your accounts. If you are missing referral funds, it is likely that your colleague has not yet taken a second survey with us, or the two days haven’t passed. Remind them to complete their profile fully!
Do you have partnership or sponsorship opportunities?
Yes, we have both. If you are interested in a partnership or sponsorship, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with information regarding your group or website and the type of opportunity you’re interested in. We work with many healthcare professional groups and influencers and have partnered with both for profit and nonprofit organizations.
