Qualtrics is a subscription-based tool requiring annual renewal starting at $1,500 a year and can go up to $5,000 a year.

FAQ

Q: I am also sending this survey through email and social media, does this mean all the people who've completed the survey will be redirected to TapResearch?

A: Only users who have a valid TAP ID, which is given immediately prior to the respondent entering the survey, will be counted as a complete. However, respondents may be redirected to our website following completion. It wouldn't adversely affect your data and there's no ads or anything to contend with.

Q: I specified in the survey details that I only wanted 20 responses, I see more than 20 have been collected. Will I be charged for the extra completes?

A: Our system may over-sample to ensure high-quality responses, however you will never be charged for any additional surveys completed outside of your specified value.
