How can a PhD student pay with the funds in my account?

I have some funds in my Prolific account and would like my student to use them towards a study payment. Is there a way to arrange this?
Many thanks,


HI Gosia,

Welcome to the forum!

I think that you could only allow your postgrads access to your prolific balance by telling your postgrads your Prolific login details. There are afaik as yet no group accounts.

Hi Gosia,
Good question! I know there are no group accounts, but I wonder if there might be a way to transfer funds between accounts, if a student were to set up their own account? @Josh ?

Yes, the way is to submit a request to the Prolific Team with all the details of the transfer (from here!) However, the solution proposed by @timtak may be the best for this case, because the invoice would be in name of the Professor and not of the Student. I feel to share this suggestion since this is a problem I’ve experienced with my own research group.


@Gosia_Goclowska Group accounts aren’t available…yet (we’re working on it now :slight_smile: )
