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.

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.

Rewards

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.

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.

They never respond

May 25, 2019 by CONRAD from United Kingdom

I have been doing surveys for Ipoll for many years and they send frequent emails which I attempt. A month ago I tried to log in to check my points. I was told I could not log in from my country and I should re-register. I was not able to do this, so I asked for help, several times. I never get a reply.

Worst panel ever

March 27, 2019 by Abou from Canada

Just received an email from them 2 minutes ago saying my account was terminated , they provided no proof , no reasons as to why it was terminated , they just felt like it apparently, WORST PANEL EVER, do NOT waste your time.

LOTS OF DON'T QUALIFY FOR SURVEYS

March 23, 2019 by STEPHEN from United States

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.
