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.

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.

Survey Theft

June 13, 2019 by Sawyer from United States

The problem that's referred to as survey theft has been getting worse and worse over the past couple years to the point that it's no longer worth the time and effort to continue with iPoll. It started out being just a few surveys a month where you'd go through the whole survey answering ALL of the questions (not just the demographic ones but ALL of them on the survey topic as well) only to get transferred back to iPoll at the very end and be told that you didn't qualify for the survey. It seems clear to me this is happening so someone can get survey results without actually paying you for them. What initially began as just a few per month then became a few per week. Unfortunately, reporting the instances to iPoll is also a waste of time as you will either get no response at all or get a generic cut-and-paste excuse of how it must be your fault and no offer to help even when you've provided evidence to back up what you're telling them. So, instead of iPoll doing anything to help reduce the problem, this year it has literally become a few per day. That is not an exaggeration. I just had this happen on 3 surveys already today: a 25 minute one, a 20 minute one, and a 15 minute one. So, I wasted an entire hour of my life. And it's now happening regularly. This wasn't a one-off thing. I wouldn't have bothered coming here and writing this review if that were the case. It's gotten so bad that wasting 30-60 minutes per day FULLY completing surveys only to be told you didn't qualify is common. And. again, this NOT being told you didn't qualify after only filling out the demographic/classification questions. I'm talking about surveys where you've gone on to provide 100+ responses on the actual topic. Furthermore, before anybody thinks this may be happening because I'm rushing through surveys and giving useless responses, that is definitely NOT the situation. The main reason I do surveys is because I genuinely believe that both product quality and quality of service keeps deteriorating and I want to try and improve the situation with helpful feedback and input. So, I give legitimate answers and am not just randomly clicking and giving nonsense answers. Lastly, I'm obviously not doing it for the money since the typical payout on iPoll is 50 cents for 10 minute surveys, $1.00 for 15-20, $1.50 for 20-25, and the rare survey which pays $2 or more. Calculate out the hourly rate and it is WAY WAY below minimum wage. Taking surveys is definitely not worth your time if you're only doing it for the money! But, even if the money is secondary, nobody wants to feel like they're being lied to or cheated. And, unfortunately, that's what I now feel like on practically a daily basis with iPoll. I have to strongly recommend against them due to this frequent, ongoing problem.
