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.

Eligibility: USA, UK, Canada, 13+

Avoid like the plague

November 25, 2019 by Trevor from United Kingdom

I was with this outfit for a few years and had managed to reach the payout threshold (£25) a couple of times. Then, when I was within £1 of qualifying for another payment they arbitrarily nixed my account. The same thing happened to my Opinion Outpost account at the same time. They are thoroughly disreputable.

Too Many Lies

September 23, 2019 by Elaine from United States

I think they are incapable of being honest. Here is a quoted example of what happens with most survey invitations I get from Ipoll:

"Earn $0.50 Cash in just 10 minutes if you complete this survey"

BUT... click on the link to be taken to the survey and this is what the organization conducting it says:

"The whole survey will take about 25 minutes to complete."

Obviously Ipoll sees the survey before they send out the invitations. So they're reading that quote above which appears on the first page of the survey. But they lie to you in the invitation and say it's only a 10 minute survey. But the TRUTH is they're trying to get you to do a 25 minute survey and only pay you 50 cents!!!

This is happening on most surveys. I'd say about 70% turn out to be longer than what Ipoll claims they are and what they are paying you based on. Thankfully some of the surveys (like the example above) tell you at the start how long they are and you can quickly avoid them rather than spending way too much time for the small reward. But not all of them so far too often you get suckered into doing a survey which is twice as long as what Ipoll told you.

And the other thing I consider to be a lie is periodically then send you invitations that say Because you are a highly valued member we are paying you extra for this survey. And it will seem like a great deal... usually somewhere in the range of $2.50-$4.00 for a 10-20 minute survey. Well let me tell you... I've gotten over 30 of these and NONE ever paid. NOT ONE!!! Usually you click the invitation link and you're quickly disqualified with some excuse like the survey has already finished (even though several times I clicked the link the second after the invitation appeared in my inbox) or you don't meet the demographic requirements (even though Ipoll already has all your demographic info on file but sent you the invitation anyway.) So, over 30 of these "special" invitations and NONE ever paying makes me think they aren't even real and Ipoll is probably sending them out these invitations just to make you think you can maybe earn more with them than you really can.

And oh BTW, a friend who has also been trying Ipoll for a couple years told me she has seen these same things on her Ipoll account. So it's not just me!

Too much time for too little reward

August 13, 2019 by Janice from United States

Reading through the recent reviews I came here to write the same sort of review as the one from Sawyer a couple months back. It's gotten totally out of control how often you spend a bunch of time answering a ton of questions (questions about the company or product or whatever the survey is about, not just the intro questions) but you don't get paid because they say you didn't qualify (well then why did you let me get so deep into the survey) or that the survey has already filled up (then why didn't you say that at the start). I wouldn't mind it this happened after just 1-2 minutes but it's infuriating when you've already spent 10-20 minutes. And now it's literally happening several times per day.

The worst ones are surveys about your kids or about entertainment (tv/movies/gaming/etc). I've completely given up on those. I kept track of the last 50 of those type of survey and only got paid on 2 of them!!! And you can guess what a PITA it is to keep trying all these surveys that ask you to have your kid complete the second half of it and you go to all the trouble of getting them over there only to be told you didn't qualify 90% of time. Your kid gets annoyed, you get annoyed. Like I said, it's a PITA. Now I just quit any survey as soon as I see it's about kids or entertainment. I suggest you do the same. Once I can finally get rewarded for enough other ones to reach the 25 minimum payout then I'm done. Too much time for too little reward now.

They cheat you

August 4, 2019 by Megan from United States

I accumulated $25 doing surveys for multiple hours each week. I took my time on each survey. But when I tried to redeem my $25 through my paypal account, a message came up that said "Your membership has been terminated as a result of the violation of the iPoll Terms and Conditions. For questions, please contact [email protected]".

I've contacted iPoll several times but they just repeat "the accuracy and attentiveness of your account activity has been flagged" message and ignore any requests to provide specific information.They also kept my $25.

I then created a different e-mail to give them one more shot. I spent another couple of weeks doing surveys. And when I went to redeem my $25, my account got terminated again & they kept my money again. This company is shady. They do not want to pay you for your time so they make up some crap that you violated their terms & conditions. After reading through a lot of the reviews, it seems I am definitely not the first person this has happened to.

To me, it looks like SSI (the parent company of iPoll and OO) just want to cull people out of their programs without having to pay them a dime by accusing them of violating the T&Cs, which is despicable behavior.

My advice is to avoid any SSI panels in future unless you want to see your hard-earned cash vanished into thin air.

Dishonest Firm

June 25, 2019 by Heidi from United States

iPoll and sister company SurveySpot will shut down your account and confiscate your earnings by claiming that you failed their quality checks. So if you're a FAST reader but accurate, beware. (iPoll/SurveySpot time the surveys and assume that each should take a certain amount of time to complete.) Fast readers and typists will eventually join their "hit list" and have their earnings taken. There's no rejoinder or recourse. "Guilty before proven innocent" is how they operate, so beware.
