If you’ve logged into CrowdFlower over the last day or two, you may have noticed a new feature - Automatic Payments. With Automatic Payments, you no longer need to manually load funds into your account. This should be particularly useful for customers who integrate with CrowdFlower’s API to ensure there are no interruptions to your jobs due to an insufficient balance.
