FAQ

1. What is YouOpinion?

YouOpinion is a website created to submit and answer surveys, either free or paid.

2. How do I get paid?

YouOpinion uses PayPal to receive and send payments in a safe, easy and free way. You will get the money you earned as soon as your credit reaches $10.00

3. Why can't I withdraw less than $10.00?

Each transaction has administrative costs and they are entirely covered by YouOpinion.

4. Why do I need to top up my account?

In case you decide to purchase premium option, the cost of them will be withdrawn from your account credit each time you receive an answer. An example of a premium option would be polls directed to specific target audiences (for instance a questionnaire specifically interested in male users older than 30).

5. Why are some polls more expensive than others?

The pricing of surveys is determined by two factors: the complexity of the poll (number of questions, length of the text) and - more important - the specificity of the poll. For example, if you require a poll focused exclusively to players of a specific sport within a certain age demographic, the answers will have a higher value to an analyst focused on a specific target audience than a generic poll. If you create a poll using premium options you will likely see a higher return on investment down the line by using the target information.

6. Why should I provide so much information on my profile?

You don't need to fill out all the boxes if you are not comfortable; although, the more specific you are about yourself, the more specific - and profitable - polls you will be asked to submit.

Why am I invited to take free polls? What benefits do I receive?

We want to be able to offer everyone a chance to create questionnaires - within limits - without investing any money. Every time you'll take a free poll you'll earn a Prestige Point.


PRESTIGE POINTS (PP)


8. What are they?

Prestige Points (PP) represent a user's trustworthiness within youOpinion. In other words, it represents how likely a user is willing to fill out polls, and therefore take more time to answer your questions with valuable information.

9. What is their purpose?

Trustworthy users have a higher priority when it comes to assigning premium polls. The higher is your PP score, the higher the likelihood you will be offered premium polls and an increased chance to earn money.

10. How do I earn them?

You will earn a PP for each free poll you take.


CREATING A POLL


11. What is the cost to create a poll?

youOpinion offers opportunities to create both free and paid polls. The options you choose at the moment of creating the survey determine the cost of the answers you will get.

15. Is the interruption or completion of the poll immediate?
