never get paid

August 3, 2017 by Rita from United States

This site was pretty good when I first started using it, but I was completing surveys, after awhile, and never getting my incentive, and, then, they started with the 3rd party surveys, and I would attempt 5 or 6 at a time with no luck. I finally managed to get my 3rd star for my $2 loyalty credit, which I took in Paypal credit, but, that was nearly a week ago, and I still haven't gotten paid. I have messaged about it, but have received no answer. This new company doesn't seem to be any better. Anyone else?

Wishing for days gone by.

Survey sites have been undergoing changes lately. Most have NOT been for the better and Innopoll is NO exception to that. 3 months ago, I would have left a 5 star review. Now, I'm just glad I didn't waste my time doing THAT. I can tell you that 3 months ago there were instant payouts and sometimes, loyalty credits whether or not you qualified. Payouts are still instant but good luck getting one. Now, it seems they are just a last resort for companies collecting data or something. The best example I can give you is today's. I got an invite. Previously, I was guaranteed to at least finish the survey. Now, like today, you will go through 20-30 minutes and get cancelled with NO reward and very likely, almost certainly NO loyalty credit. I kept a tick count today. I answered what state I was from 13 TIMES before being told I didn't qualify. Just an endless loop of qualifying questions. Just when you think you're in- you're ACTUALLY participating in the survey this time-it will buffer and ask you for your age again. Good luck NOT pulling your hair out. I don't know what happened to this formerly AWESOME site but then, I don't know what happened to all the good ones.

Quick Payment, Great Customer Service

May 21, 2017 by Stacey from United States

Though innoPoll has very few surveys and I only qualify for about 1/4 of them, I appreciate their quick payout. They immediately pay you via PayPal for the survey you take. No messing around, no minimum points. You know exactly how much you will get paid for a survey before taking it. They also give you one credit for each survey that you don't qualify for, and once you have earned three credits, you are immediately given $2 (I usually ask for PayPal cash). They are also super mobile phone friendly. Highly recommend.

Good Idea, Bad Execution

May 19, 2017 by Kitty from United States

So innopoll seemed like a cool idea. Do a survey and you get paid immediately, no muss and no fuss. Except for one small problem. I have never actually been allowed to "finish" a survey. I've been sent invites to 6 surveys, only ever managed to finish one. It would send me on an endless goose chase of surveys. I put in my basic info again and again, get few questions into a survey, then suddenly I'm booted, and thrown into another survey. Lather, rinse, repeat. After doing it for an hour, I gave up and closed the tab. The "You didn't qualify, but here's a "you tried" star for your trouble" thing is nice, if you never get allowed to finish a survey, it's moot. Also, I once got what I thought was the end of a survey, and even got a "Congratulations, you've completed the survey! Please wait to redirected for your reward" and then got BOOTED INTO ANOTHER SURVEY.

I am relatively new to this panel, however, so far I am super pleased. Dont offer a slew of surveys but the payout is immediate into Paypal. Usually $2 or more per survey
