    One poll quality control questions

    One poll quality control questions 10th Mar 17 at 1:23 PM
    Has anyone noticed One poll has introduced their quality control questions? It normally says "quality control free text question. Your account may be blocked or deleted". There is an empty text row added at the end and I am really confused if it that empty text answer that should be selected for this? I was just ignoring that empty text row and selecting my answer I would normally select. I am on almost £37 at the moment and it would be a disappointment if they delete my account right now! Any advice?

    Can't say I've seen it on any surveys I've done with them (50 in March so far).

    I only started getting those with quality check for the last few days. I am wondering if they are primarily aiming at panelists who are approaching their £40 redemption? Just the thoughts! I hope I am wrong but you never know.

    I would imagine they're targeting people who don't read the questions and just fill in stuff randomly.

    I would never leave so much money in a survey company account, and always cash in as soon as possible. Otherwise, you never know if things change.

    I finally reached £40 and cashed out last Sunday. I'm hoping they don't come up with an excuse to not pay me. I've always written something relevant for the quality control questions.

    I am really worried that I did not tick that free text empty box answer which they probably meant as a quality check answer.
    It would be horrible if they will use it as an excuse to not let me cash out £40 especially as its been taken a good few years to earn that amount!

    That should tell you right there, that they're not worth bothering with! Along with the sneaky quality control questions. A few years to earn £40 - spend your time with survey companies who value your time.

    To be honest I wanted to give up on them long time ago but just wanted to finish earning £40.

    There have also been reports - people stuck on £39.90 and not getting the surveys for months.

    Although I redeemed the £40 last Sunday, from what I remember they can take up to 28 days to pay. I'm still waiting.

    It probably took me 6 months to reach the magic £40. I lost count of the number of times I was booted out of surveys when the survey shut down half way through and the number of times I was screened out for not having children.

    Once I'd got over £20 I was determined to reach £40. I'll be closing my account when I receive my £40.

    At least OnePoll are fairly active on Farcebook so I know I can contact them that way.

    Can't say I've seen it on any surveys I've done with them (50 in March so far).

    Onepoll surveys don't appear at weekends. They add surveys monday to friday. So that explains why you had none today.

    50 that I have completed and been credited for. It doesn't include those I've been screened out of.

    I made my last £40 in three months and am on track for this one in just over two so it's not as bad as some on here make out. I used to love Global Test Market but I can't earn the same on there as quickly as I can on One Poll. There are better survey sites but I'll stick with it.

    You do need to check regularly though, don't rely on notifications. And do check weekends, a few of us made £1.40 last weekend by remembering to check.

    I was on £39.90 and stopped getting surveys for 4 days, then logged in to being at £40 and able to cash out. Their CS state they do some kind of "check" when you get close to the limit and like me many seem to get the last bit topped up in return for the delay. Still waiting on the payment, but its only been just under 2 weeks and they say upto 28 days.

    Not sure why it took so long to get to £40 I am back up to £6 and don't go on that often, usually about 3-4 months to payout tbh, the surveys are quick and easy-great for a few spare mins, I find them ok.

    Question for anyone who uses this site regularly... what is the best way to check for surveys? Is it just something you have to check several times a day to see if any have appeared? Or do they appear and stay until you complete them?


    I have been a member for a few days, had a few surveys and got to about £5. However most of the time it just says no surveys available. I guess this is the same for everyone I was just wondering if there is a knack to checking when they arrive.

    Most have a quota and will disappear when they get enough responses. It's best to check very often during working hours - e.g. every 5 mins - to get the most surveys.

    Thank you, I thought that would be the case it is just when surveys have a appeared a few turned up at once but most of the time there is nothing. I'll keep checking regularly.
