E-Poll is a smaller online survey panel which was established all the way back in 1997. They’ve got a long track record and a positive reputation. The site provides an experience which is unique in a number of ways compared to other online survey services.
After providing the information required to complete your account registration you must confirm your email address. It seems to be somewhat common for their emails to be mislabeled as spam. So if you don’t see the confirmation email in your inbox after a few minutes you should be sure to check your spam folder.
Completing at least one survey each month provides an entry into their monthly drawing. Each month there is a drawing with 50 different winners being awarded a $20 prize.
So even if you don’t do a lot of surveys on the site, it’s a good idea to do at least one paid survey each month.
E-Poll is planning to provide an option in the future to have new survey notices sent by text message. This could be an issue with other sites which offer several or dozens of new surveys every day.
Since this site has a more limited number of paid survey opportunities the messages aren’t likely to be overwhelming for most people. It should be a helpful way to stay on top of new opportunities.
One sort of confusing thing about the program is that the points earned by completing surveys don’t have a fixed value. The lowest payout threshold is $5 for 3,750 points (750 points per dollar)
The payment options for the site are a little limited, with only a handful of gift cards or Paypal payments to choose from. One pretty unique feature of the program, though, is the option to directly donate your earnings to a handful of different charities.
Payments can be requested any time after you’ve earned enough points, but can require 4 – 6 weeks to be issued after being requested.
