Advantages for Pro and Extra Users

If you upgrade to a Pro or Extra account, you can enjoy plenty of advantages that users with free account do not have access to!

What do I get?

Let’s make a quick comparison for you to see what you get on top if you upgrade your account now:


Let’s sum up. If you upgrade your account, you will have:

1) More survey responses per month.

2) Much bigger storage space for your files and data.

3) More additional users account – you will be able to share your account with more people, if you upgrade to Extra.

4) Advanced survey logic – you will be able to create more complex surveys, by setting validations, survey and page logic. You will be also able to create disqualification questions and terminate respondents at the screener, if they do not qualify to complete the survey.

5) Banning by IP – you can enable IP protection for your poll or survey, which means that a respondents cannot submit their answers twice from one and the same IP address.

6) Private profile – as a Pro or Extra user, you can enjoy a private profile.

7) Captcha voting protection – you can enable Captcha protection for your poll, which means that the respondents will have to fill in correctly a Captcha text box, in order to submit their answer. In this way you can ensure that only real people and not computer programs are taking your poll.

8) E-mail voting protection – you can enable e-mail protection for your poll, which means that the participants will need to enter their e-mail before they are able to submit their response. Then the respondents will need to check the provide e-mail and click on the confirmation link.

9) Invite participants by e-mail – as a Pro or Extra user, you can create e-mail groups and send e-mail invitations.
