10-second OnePulse review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This might not be a massive earner, but you get great returns for the effort you put in. You can earn £0.25+ just from answering three quick questions, which soon builds up. Be quick though, as spaces to answer soon fill up.


I’m always on the lookout for new ways to earn money. Because I work full-time and often running around after my children, one of my favourite ways is to earn using my phone. So when I found an advertisement for OnePulse, I was instantly interested.

Once you’ve downloaded the app onto your phone, you must fill out some basic personal details. Then, you can start to answer Pulses.

Are survey sites a legit way to earn money?

I know there are a lot of naysayers when it comes to survey sites – they are either scams or they pay just a few pence per hour. But you can make a decent side income if you find the right sites. Okay, so it won’t replace a full-time income but it gives you a chance to make extra from home. Or in the case of apps, anywhere you like.

And think, an extra £3 per day is over £1,000 per year. Not bad for minimal effort.

Who is OnePulse?

OnePulse is owned by StartPulsing Limited, a British company based in London that started in 2011. They operate in the UK, USA and… Kenya.

Taken from their website:

We challenge the status quo of the research industry. We challenge our clients to question the way they make decisions. And we challenge our community to stay informed in the world of fake news and constantly learn more about the world around them.

The app is a handy way for companies to get your opinion on their products or services by asking quick questions.

What is the OnePulse app?

OnePulse is a smartphone app that allows you to make money. You’re asked three simple questions and then rewarded with cash. Once you reach $20, the money is paid into your PayPal account.

There are two types of pulses – those that pay and those that don’t. But for every pulse you complete, you’ll receive XP. And the more XP you have, the more your money Pulses are worth.

The good

Pulses are extremely short. Usually, they are just three quick questions that will take 10 seconds to complete. Sometimes, you may need to watch a video, but they only last a minute.

If I only completed money Pulses, I would earn over £60 per hour! Withdrawing your earnings is very quick and it goes straight into your PayPal.

The bad

The number of pulses I receive changes weekly. Sometimes, I can earn $2-3 in a day, and then go several days without anything.

The app is a little buggy. I often find that when you receive a notification that you have a money Pulse, the moment you click on it, the app will take a while to load and often crash. I assume this is because several hundred people are all trying to access the app at the same time.

And you don’t have long to answer money Pulses. OnePulse must have a set number of participants they require; once they reach that limit, you won’t be able to answer the Pulse. I have found that as the app has become more popular, Pulses can fill up within 1 minute.

Don’t expect always to receive notifications for money pulses either. Both my wife and I have the app and often, only one of us will get a notification when a new pulse is available. Check the app regularly!

How much can you earn from OnePulse?

Recently, OnePulse changed how they paid you from £ to $. This was so they could also target the US market. They claimed this would increase the number of money pulses received, although I didn’t see any change. I currently earn $0.38 per Pulse. When you join, your Pulses will initially pay out less but will increase in time.

Level 1 – 25 cents
Level 2 – 26 cents
Level 3 – 27 cents
Level 4 – 28 cents
Level 5 – 29 cents
Level 6 – 30 cents
Level 7 – 31 cents
Level 8 – 32 cents
Level 9 – 33 cents
Level 10 – 34 cents
Level 11 – 35 cents
Level 12 – 36 cents
Level 13 – 37 cents
Level 14 – 38 cents
Level 15 – 39 cents
Level 16 – 40 cents
Level 17 – 41 cents

I earn around 25 pence for about 15 seconds work from OnePulse. Technically speaking, that’s about £60 per hour. If only I could get Pulses every few minutes, and I could give up work. Realistically, I usually earn between $5-7 per week.

The minimum amount you can withdraw is $20, and you can only make 1 request per month. However, I think very few people will earn enough to request more.

How can you make extra with OnePulse?

Of course, with the pay rate so good, you’re probably keen to make extra with OnePulse. How many Pulses you receive partly depends on your demographics.

However, ensure you have notifications turned on for cash pulses so you don’t miss out. When you’re new to the app, I would also complete as many XP pulses as you can so you start earning more. Notifications don’t always work, so check your app frequently. I also find that I sometimes need to reset the app before I can see a new Pulse.

OnePulse also has groups that you can join. Join as many as you can to make sure you receive more Pulses.

My OnePulse review conclusion

I’m liking this app more and more. I found that as I reached a level I was comfortable with ($0.35) per pulse, turning on notifications just for money pulses meant that I was making a decent amount from little effort. Out of all the money-making apps I use, this certainly gives the best returns for the effort I have to put in.

The only downside is that you have to be quick to answer Pulses. Not a great earner if you don’t have constant access to your phone.
