Get Paid for Fun Adventures!

Turn the things you do everyday into an adventure! iPoll is all about convenience and fun, and wants to know your thoughts on the things you do everyday, with interactive mini missions that provide rewards. You'll get a $5 bonus just for signing up, and surveys range from $0.50 to $3. If you don’t mind leaving your home, you may also complete “missions” using the phone app at specific retail locations. New Item Scavenger Hunts potentially allow you to earn from $0.50 to $100 a day.

Survey Types

iPoll offers its members the opportunity to take surveys via their website and also via their mobile apps. Their mobile apps are available on both iTunes (for iPhones) and on Google Play (for Android phones). Users who download the mobile app can expect to be contacted more frequently to participate in surveys.

Complete Surveys to Earn Points

Complete survey to earn points and get rewarded. Surveys themselves typically take between 10-15 minutes and iPoll tries to keep surveys as short as possible so they aren’t monopolizing your time.

Added App Features

Another benefit of downloading the app is getting specific assignments based on your geographic location, accepting them and earning cash right on the spot! You may be challenged to take a picture of a product, or asked to visit a specific store. The app also includes video, photo and audio capabilities for fun, interactive reporting.


iPoll offers various rewards including cash paid via PayPal (to verified PayPal accounts only), Amazon.com e-vouchers, and iTunes gift codes. Once redeemed, rewards usually take about 4 weeks to be delivered. If you are redeeming via PayPal, remember to use the same email to sign up for iPoll that you use for your PayPal account. iPoll tries to get your rewards to you quickly, but on occasion it may take up to 4 weeks to redeem your rewards.

A $25 account balance is required to redeem an Amazon.com e-voucher, or an iTunes gift code. PayPal cash payments can be requested when you've completed $50 worth of surveys or assignments.

Quarterly Sweepstakes!

iPoll rewards its members with quarterly sweepstakes draws of up to $10,000 USD. To be entered into the sweepstakes, you simply need to participate in a panel or survey, attend a webinar or redeem points.

Restricted My Account For No Reason

October 16, 2020 by Lisa from United States

After years of serving on this Panel they restricted my account for reasons that do not apply to me. I thought it was odd, especially since I was $2 away from cashing out. I’m going to report them to the Better Business Bureau.

Don’t do it

So I literally just joined ipoll. Tried to redeem my first cashout today and it keeps saying there is an error with my account and they do not respond to support messages. Do not recommend them. Also how does a new member get their account suspended for accuracy when all surveys were answered honestly. They don’t tell you your account is suspended till you try to cashout so you spend all that time doing surveys for a waste of time.

I Poll

Add my name to the growing list of people who were terminated for no apparent reason. After completing 1942 surveys over the past 2 years I was terminated as I tried to redeem. No explanation given other than terms were violated. I take my surveys seriously and belong to over 15 websites. To add insult; my balance was kept that I earned from outside surveys. Believe me; the BBB; attorney general and whoever else I need to speak with will get an earful about this website.

What's very annoying about this site is on a typical day you get a list of 20 surveys and every one you click on you don't qualify for. A person could spend up 40 minutes doing this and not even earning a dime. When you do qualify, you do eventually get paid, so it takes tons of patience. I was waiting for my last payment for over 45 days and then I e-mailed them. They said that they were having trouble with the Walmart gift card and then they cancelled my request. Now, it's going to take over 3 months to get paid, completely ridiculous!

The surveys are very repetitive and boring. Some surveys go on and on and never seem to end. You can get one that asks you 300 questions about toilet paper or several hundred mind numbing boring questions about health insurance. Sometimes I have to get up a take a break because I get so sick of answering these stupid endless boring questions. Some days it can really fry your patience!

The completed surveys then have to be validated which can take up to a year in some cases. When you reach that magical $50 of validated surveys, you put in a request and wait another 5 weeks for your payment. Very, very slow.

April 2017 update: They did improve the speed of their payment systems. Getting paid through PayPal only takes a couple of days. New problem though, I couldn't redeem my $50 because they're having trouble with their site. I called the toll free number (only during business hours) and it took my 6 times before I got an operator. They told me the site will be under repair for a couple of weeks. The surveys have been better in the last few months and the dollar compensation has been decent, so I'm raising my rating from 1 star to 2 stars, but waiting for them to repair the website, there might be another update soon.

November 2017 update: They've been pretty good lately, so I'm raising my rating to 2.5 stars. What really angers me is that sometimes I might spend over 15 minutes doing a survey where they ask me tons of personal questions and then they don't reward me, very aggravating!

Update: I get to start a bunch of survey spending as much as 15 minutes and then they kick you out. Tonight I started over 10 surveys and only got paid for one (50 cents). Very cheap about paying out!

Update: In the last week, I got much less surveys and I would get stuck on a screen that read that I already did this $1 survey. Now on 3/22/19, I log in and get a white blank screen for surveys, don't know what is going on now, but I'll keep this updated.

It has been a little better lately. I'll spend about an hour an surveys and get paid about $5. I don't know how long this will last though. 9/16/20.

Eventually, they will try to keep your money.
I tried to redeem $25. I didn't receive it so, I sent a message stating this. After some back and forth, I finally received a notice that it was a technical difficulty on their end and that I should be able to redeem again. I was able to but, shortly after, I received an e-mail from one of their reps It was obvious that he didn't realize the problem was already taken care of. I replied stating so. Right after that, my account was flagged with the same generic message that everybody else has been getting in their reviews. They won't tell me exactly why they suspended my account and won't talk via a phone call. I've repeatedly asked them for my earned money that is in my account but, they ignore that request. This is not right. It is money that I have earned. I won't give up until I get MY money.
