One of the most popular online survey sites in the UK is OnePoll. The site offers very short surveys typically lasting only a few minutes but pays a very low rate per survey. The company is legitimate and does pay (I've earned over £200) however the company has gotten quite greedy as of late (the surveys are now too long for the money). Also getting to £40 in 10-30p steps is quite a task and requires a lot of dedication. You must login regularly and if you don't get to £40 you leave with nothing. OnePoll is a slow burner and one for only the most serious survey takers.

Typical Payment per survey: 10-50p
Typical Length; 1-5 mins
Payments via Paypal or Bank Transfer (takes around 1 month to receive the money)
Have to login (rarely sent out by email)
The most annoying thing about OnePoll is the fact that you get screened out of so many surveys for the same reason. For example if you say your single you might get screened out and then the next day you are asked if you're single again which screens you out again. This wastes a lot of time and slows down the earning rate considerably. Some days you see £1 of surveys and waste 5 mins getting screened out of 60p of them.
Refer a Friend
One way to boost your earnings is by referring a friend. You are paid once you initially refer a friend and then this payment is topped up as they pass various milestones. This does help you towards your £40 payout and referring near the end can tip you over.
Joins = 50p
Hits £20= £1
Hits £40 = £2.50
Total = £4.00 per person
However annoyingly you can only contact 10 people. If one of them does not join after getting an email you lost one of your 10 chances forever at getting a sign-up. That sucks.
OnePoll CashBack Review
To cut a long story short I generally would not advise that you bother with OnePoll cashback. The rates paid are almost always worse than Qudico and TopCashback. Using OnePoll cashback is just a way to earn less money than you could otherwise get. On average that is. If your not lazy the story is different...
Perhaps the rate might be higher occasionally so it is worth checking but I certainly would not make OnePoll your main cashback site. If you are really into Cashback do sign up and add it to the list you check - sometimes they are the best. The following example shows how important it is to shop around when it comes to cashback. Sometimes the differences can be extreme (sometimes it's the other way around but usually TCP is best).

On the other hand occasionally there are good offers unique to OnePoll cashback which are worth taking. Particularly the "easy money section". Occasionally you can get a little bit of money for signing up for other survey sites (I'm sure you were going to anyway) and taking other offers. Those who are very good at mathematics and have rock solid discipline can occasionally find advantage play opportunities in the gambling cashback offerings (not advised for 99% of people).

What About OnePoll+?
OnePoll+ allows you to do longer surveys that pay much more. Typically 50p to around £3. However, like OnePoll Cashback, I don't think that it is worth bothering with. The dirty little secret here is that it is basically just a clone of the survey site Crowdology but with double the payout minimum (currently £8 at OnePoll+ against only £4 at Crowdology). Worse still OnePoll plus earnings do not get added towards the £40 total so you now have two separate minimums to get to before you get paid out for all your survey time.
OverallIf you are really into surveys add OnePoll to your list. They do pay and your total earnings will go up. However as far as survey sites go it is low down the list as many pay more for less. Most people joining will never manage to get to the £40 payout. If you are not willing to put in the hours don't bother joining.
