A survey site where you get paid to chat online with people? Whoa. I remember just a few days back complaining about how survey and GPT sites have become so routine to the point of becoming dull. You log in, you see if you have tasks or surveys lined up, you pray you don’t get screened out, then you wait for payment to come in.
I think I also mentioned how it gets to be such a solitary and lonely routine sometimes because you’re not really interacting with anyone beyond completing surveys and performing tasks. Now, with PollPass promising to be a “different” kind of survey site, I think I might just have the answer to my whines.
In their homepage, PollPass says they are offering a transparent value exchange, where “everybody wins. Researchers get answers, you get paid.” But how transparent is transparent, and will you really win on PollPass, or is it potentially another scam? Let’s go check it out.
First things first - what is it?
The premise of the PollPass (site and mobile app) is that you will be doing pretty much the same tasks as any other paid survey site, except you will be doing so with a “friendly chatbot” (nope, not with people as I initially thought). So basically, you will still be answering questions about brands and products and services and getting paid for it, but in a friendlier and more interactive fashion courtesy of Artificial Intelligence.
How long has it been around?
PollPass is a new mobile survey app established in London under GlobalWebIndexLabs. It looks to be just over a year old as of this writing, but already has numerous reviews both positive and not-so-positive.
Is registration free?
Registration is free, with no maintaining fees required. You must be 16 years older to download the app and use the platform, though. You are only allowed one PollPass account.
How do I start earning extra income from PollPass?
As with almost all paid survey sites, you will have to go through an initial screening quiz first to determine the kind of demographic you fall under (including gender, habits, preferences, etc.), and if the surveys available are a good fit with your background. There are no caps on points earned, so you can take on chat surveys for as long and as frequently as you want.
Oh, and here’s the sweetest part of it - you will not get screened out during a survey chat. Unlike the main problem with traditional survey sites, there are virtually no vexing moments of discovering that you’ve gotten disqualified right in the middle or towards the tail-end of a survey!
Earnings can be redeemed via PayPal, Amazon gift cards, with the usual expected processing time for either platform. This is why validated email addresses are encouraged for registering with PollPass for faster processing.
Does it pay well?
The opportunity to get paid to chat doesn’t come too often, and on that premise alone I will venture to say that yes, it pays well. Regardless, there have been complaints about technical problems with chats, which in turn affect the kind of earnings they expect to make. However, the payment proofs on forums, blog reviews, Facebook page, and other sources are evidence of how the site is on its toes to try and keep their users satisfied with their platform (all concerns are encouraged to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org).
How soon do I get paid?
Chat convos with the PollPass bot last between 5-10 minutes. The fact that this is a mobile-friendly app means you can go for survey chats then cash out anytime, anywhere, even during long rides to and from work, or while waiting for someone you’re going to meet, or just about any circumstance that gives you some free time.
For 5000 points, you can already redeem an Amazon gift card worth $5. Users have reported being able to redeem points within an hour! It all depends on the length and topic of the AI chat, but on average you can expect 50 to 80 points per survey.
How to make money with bots? PollPass has the answer! I would confidently vouch for this site being legit, because it not only meets my minimum expectations of what a good paid survey site should be but actually exceeds it.
I am all for working from home and earning some extra money on the side with GPTs, but with PollPass, I now have the opportunity to work on surveys even while travelling, waiting in airports or restaurants, or just about any time or place I want to earn on my free time. It’s flexibility meets convenience meets fun, and that’s something I want to get on board with!
