This is the definitive OneOpinion review for 2020.
We’ve spent 100+ hours researching and testing the best survey sites.
Here’s how OneOpinion stacks up…
- The eBiz Facts team had previously spent 100+ hours researching and reviewing online survey sites.
- Niall and Will spent a combined 5+ hours researching and testing OneOpinion.
- Niall contacted OneOpinion support to test out their responsiveness.
- Will wrote up his findings and Niall combined those with his own to create a first draft of this review.
- We sent the draft to our Freedom Business Builder community and the folks at OneOpinion and asked for feedback.
- We made our final edits and published the review.

What is OneOpinion?
OneOpinion is a website that offers you points for taking surveys and giving your opinions on products. You can then redeem these points for cash or reward vouchers (Amazon, Visa, etc).
The site is open to users in the US or UK. If you’re in one of these countries, you can sign up and start earning.
This way of making money online is known as GetPaidTo.
How does OneOpinion work?
The surveys you do on the platform provide feedback for businesses. This is then used to improve their products or services (or develop new ones).
In exchange for your opinions, you get paid.
Here’s how OneOpinion explains it…
Is OneOpinion legit or a scam?
I’d say it’s definitely legit.
OneOpinion is run by market insights company Dynata LLC, operating out of Texas, US. The survey site itself has been in operation since 2011.
According to the Better Business Bureau, Dynata LLC scores an A+ rating.
However, Dynata’s customer reviews aren’t as impressive…
The story is similar on Trustpilot…
Aside from these ratings, OneOpinion appears to have a good reputation. Many Reddit users report it being both legit and reliable.
So is OneOpinion safe?
OneOpinion is safe.
The site employs 2-Step Verification to protect its users. They will also send security codes via SMS if required.
The platform takes data privacy seriously too. Here’s what they have to say…
My research didn’t show any security concerns using the site.
How much does OneOpinion pay?
- Online Survey Taker at OneOpinion
- $2 – 3 per hour
Olga Opie represents a typical person doing online research studies at OneOpinion. As you can see, her earnings are fairly low. (This is typical for survey sites.)
There’s no official confirmation, but by all accounts, the OneOpinion points system works like this:
- 10 points = $0.01
- 100 points = $0.10
- 1000 points = $1.00
The points you get from each survey vary. Most members of the site report earning 1000 points per survey. This accounts for $1 per 20 minutes (the average survey length).
Other users claim higher, earning up to 2500 points ($2.50) for a 15-minute survey. OneOpinion themselves don’t provide concrete information about their points system or the average survey pay-out.
The amount of surveys available is reported to be good, although some users report issues qualifying.
Our goal at eBiz Facts is to give you accurate information about online business so you can gain clearer insights, make better decisions, and achieve your own success.
With that in mind, we strive to ensure the accuracy and transparency of the income claims and estimates that you see on this website.
- We treat all income claims we find online with skepticism.
- We don’t report incomes that seem especially controversial or unrealistic.
- We cite our sources and/or share our calculations so you can see where the numbers come from.
- If there are uncertainties about an income claim or estimate, we tell you what those are.
If you see an income claim or estimate that seems off, please tell us so we can fix it.
How does OneOpinion pay?
OneOpinion offers members the chance to exchange points for Amazon eCards, Visa gift cards or cash via PayPal.
The minimum payout amount is 25,000 points, which equals $25.
Here’s how they explain it…
Some members report problems cashing out. OneOpinion’s 24/7 support service is said to resolve most issues quickly though.
I have seen reports of unnotified account cancellations, but these seem to be rare.
OneOpinion Sign Up
A chatbot will guide you through the process. You’ll have to enter your name, accept their user agreement, and provide an email address.
You’ll also be asked to verify that you’re either in the US or UK.
From there you’ll be sent an email to confirm your sign-up. Clicking that will complete your account registration and you’ll be able to start taking surveys. There is no sign up bonus.
The whole process takes a few minutes.
It’s worth attempting surveys on OneOpinion even if you feel you may not qualify.
This is because you can still earn points for trying (anything up to 50 points).
Try to be quick with the surveys, but not too quick!
There’s a theory that each survey works on a timer. If you go too fast or take too long your chances of disqualification go up.
Another is if you get a survey that you feel isn’t worth it – both in terms of pay and estimated time – start it, return to OneOpinion’s main page and then refresh your browser. You won’t get the disqualification points here but you might get a better-paying survey.

OneOpinion Referral Program
There’s no mention of a referral program.
However, OneOpinion does encourage members of the same household to sign-up and complete activities. Each user will have to sign up for an individual account.
The main complaints I’ve read about OneOpinion include:
- Random account cancellations
- Limited chat-bot support
- Survey qualification issues.
Is OneOpinion worth it?
As potential earnings are too low, OneOpinion isn’t ideal if you’re looking to earn a living working online. (There are much better options for that.)
But OneOpinion can be a decent way to earn a little extra cash while you have 20 minutes or so to spare watching Netflix or listening to a podcast.
The major pro of the site is it has a reliable number of surveys. The cons outweigh this however, mainly with the pay-per-survey being quite low.
My score for OneOpinion is 2.9 out of 5.
