iPoll is the site that pays you $5 just for signing up to their site! Is it a scam or a legitimate survey site you can trust? We decided to review iPoll to find this out ourselves…
So firstly when you first visit this survey site you’ll notice that it’s a very friendly site, one of the things you may not notice is at the bottom of the page and it is something that you will hear us talking about a lot here.
Anywhere you see this badge, you know that you’re dealing with a business you can 100% trust and you’ll be able to cashout any earnings you make with the site.
iPoll is operated by a company called uSamp or “United Sample Inc”, they have a B+ rating with the BBB (Better Business Bureau) on a scale between F and A+ which is very good! The BBB is a trusted directory which reviews and rates businesses in the US to help you determine which companies are legitimate and safe to deal with.
In fact just being a BBB accredited business at all shows that a business meets a certain level of ethics and standards and that it can be trusted. United Sample has been BBB accredited since 2009 so you definitely don’t need to worry about being scammed..
But if you’re still sceptical, you can check their membership on CASRO. Casro is made up of over 300 market research companies who voluntarily decide to follow their standard for research practices online, which essentially means looking after customer data and using it for appropriate means etc.. Any survey site that is a member of CASRO is not just a trustworthy business but one that really cares about their survey panelists.
iPoll Review – What to Expect After Joining
First impressions of iPoll are great, the sign up process is really easy and the sites really easy to use. Register in seconds with any social account and start getting paid immediately!
You’ll notice that the profile questions are like miniature polls that you can complete as and when you want, there’s nothing stopping you starting a survey straight off and getting paid.. Sadly though you won’t get anything for filling out the profile questions, other than them helping you to get more targeted surveys.
You should receive a LOT of invites when you first join, which is one of the appeals of iPoll, BUT you might not qualify for all of these.. The more profile questions you answer, the more relevant the surveys will become and the less times you will be disqualified.
Surveys are typically 20 minutes and are on a range of interesting topics, including some “interactive” surveys which make things a bit more exciting!
How Much iPoll Pays
You will get $1.75 dollars for a 10 minutes survey or $1.50 for a 20 minute survey, it really depends.. Typically surveys pay between $1.50 and $2.5, it’s not the worst paid survey site by any means and there are certainly plenty of surveys available..
Now you might be wondering just how iPoll can afford to give away $5 to every member who signs up… It’s simple really.. The minimum amount you can cashout is $50, which is quite high compared to some other survey sites. Some people might be turned off by this, but it’s certainly a motivator to carry on, one of the plusses of iPoll is that your points never expire, so long as you don’t unsubscribe from the site. So you don’t need to worry about losing your earnings because you went on holiday or stopped using the site for some time.
Members can choose to cashout with PayPal or through a selection of retail vouchers such as Amazon, which require a minimum of $15 in your account (a lot easier to reach). Be mindful that payments take 3-4 weeks though!
Does iPoll Have a Mobile App?
One way that you can reach the minimum withdrawal more quickly is through iPoll’s app, which pays between $5-$20 for you to complete fun shopping missions.
These missions might be visiting a local fast-food store and giving your opinion on the experience, the staff or the atmosphere, or even get paid just to take a few snaps. There are usually regular mobile surveys and some missions can even be completed multiple times!
Overall opinion seems to be highly positive for the iPoll app, in-fact it’s probably the best survey app that we have used, both the IOS and Android version have overall 4 star reviews respectively and we would have to agree with them. The app’s real easy to use on the go, most missions pay about $5, but that’s no problem, if you’re going out anyway… You’re just getting paid to do it, you may be lucky enough to get a survey paying $20 from time to time too.
You can log in with your iPoll account details, so your earnings are kept in one place, the app can be downloaded for Android or IOS:

As well as mobile surveys you can also expect to receive product reviews from iPoll from time to time, these don’t pay but you will get to keep any product you review. Other than that, it’s simply lots of regular surveys and mobile missions. The surveys work well, although the downside for some is that a lot of them are 20-30 minutes so make sure to set yourself some time aside to complete new surveys each week.
Should You Join iPoll?
Our opinion is 100% yes! iPoll is a really fun and friendly survey site to join. They really seem to care about their members and the added bonus of their mobile surveys is a great plus for the site.
The social sharing is a little annoying, although it can be easily turned off so you shouldn’t avoid the site just because of that.
If you’re looking for PayPal cash, iPoll is a great choice for regular paid surveys and we would highly suggest that you sign up!
If you’re instead in earning cash from your smartphone, we would 100% suggest you sign up, few paid survey apps are as well put together as iPoll and few of them pay as well as iPoll either!
And if you needed any other reason as to why you should join iPoll, your points will not expire unless you unsubscribe, so you never need to worry about losing your earnings!
