How To Get Paid To Receive Text Messages With 1Q!

I’m a huge fan of making money on my phone, and one thing I’ve been trying to do is earn money by receiving text messages. I finally found a way to do so that’s incredibly easy to do and you’ll earn $.25-$.50 for every text message your receive and respond to from a site called 1Q.

Over the last month or so I’ve earned over $5 from using this site, so I wanted to share with you how it works and how you can get paid to receive text messages from 1Q.

Although 1Q is legitimate please understand that this is going to be a tiny income. If you’re looking for a large online income, check out My #1 Recommendation, it’s how I made over $13,000 online last month!

Does 1Q Really Pay?

1Q sounds great, and it’s awesome that they send you a text message saying you’ve been paid, but that really doesn’t matter unless you can see proof of payment. Below I’ve included proof of payment directly to my PayPal account a few moments after answering the poll.

  1. Hey I here to ask how old do I have to be to do this. I am 16 and I would like to participate to earn some type of income.

    • Reggie, I searched 1Q’s FAQs and can’t find anything on the minimum age. With survey sites, most allow you to join at the age of 13 or older, so I’m assuming 1Q is the same.

      I’d recommend checking out these survey and reward sites, most let you know join when you’re 16.

      The only issues you would run into is if you were trying to apply for a work at home job because most require you to be over the age of 18

      Hope this helps,


  2. Funny.. I just receive a txt for some nonsense.. I don’t even remember at this point. When I replied with STOP to opt out I got a message saying there may be a charge to do so. I still sent the txt. It had me thinking… is someone making money from this and how can I..

    Might have to check this out

    • Hey Robert well when you receive texts from 1Q they won’t be nonsense. It’s usually a clear question followed by multiple choice answers. All you need to do is respond with the A, B, C, or D to get paid.

      Thanks for taking the time to read!


  3. This sounds like a neat way to bring in some extra income. I like that you get paid right away. Many companies out there make you wait until you have a certain amount of money saved up before they submit it to Paypal. Are all of the surveys 25-50 cents? Or are some more and some less?

    • Hey Wendy,

      Thanks you for taking the time to read about 1Q. It is pretty awesome that they send you cash directly to your PayPal account immediately.

      I’ve used the app for about a year, probably 90% pay $.25. Occasionally you’ll get ones that pay $.50 and sometimes they have 2 part questions that pay $.25 each.

      Hope this helps


  4. Wow the information you offer about making cash from home is amazing. I have never heard of half the companies. The IQ site is the one that caught my eye the most. What an interesting concept. I will be signing up for this one. After reading your review about ‘facebeast’ I am curious what other social media avenues would you suggest to build your business?

    • Hey Kim,

      Thank you for checking out my 1q review. It’s a really cool little extra income site.

      Honestly I don’t recommend purchasing Facebeast, but as you’re building your online business (website) you should be promoting your content across all social media accounts.

      Personally I’ve had the best success with Pinterest, but you should growing your social media following on all.


  5. I am definitely going to have to do 1Q! Such an amazing concept that is a great way to gain money in a simple and fast way, whilst also helping business’. Thank you for such a detailed description of it all and describing how it all works so well. I really enjoy your page and how you set everything. Makes it so much easier to read everything and stay interested because you’d get straight to the point.

    • Hey Tempest,

      Thanks for reading about 1Q and taking the time to leave a comment. 1Q won’t make you rich, but it’s pretty cool that you can get paid to receive and respond to text messages.

      I probably would not recommend the site if you had to wait for a cash out amount, but since payments are instant to your PayPal account, it’s a pretty awesome deal!

      Hopefully you get signed up and start making money from 1Q texts!


  6. Hey Brok,
    Thank you for your 1Q review. I didn’t know that such company exist. If it was not your review I would never found out.
    Be honest at first I was a bit skeptical, but then seeing that it works for you, made me a believer and now I will be signing up too.

    • Hey Rusian,

      Thanks for checking out 1Q, it’s a pretty awesome little app. Won’t make you a huge income, but who can complain about getting paid to receive texts and responding with 1 letter answers.

      Glad to hear you’ll be signing up! If you run into problems or have any questions just let me know!


  7. Hi Brok,

    I want to try it out but I am located in Singapore. Would they charge me an sms fee for replying? I am scared of bill shock so I haven’t started trying it yet. The last time I did something like this I was charged 15 dollars for every reply I did and I don’t want that to happen again haha!

    • Hey Pitin,

      Great question that you brought up. 1Q does have an app so if you don’t want to receive text messages, and have a smartphone you can get around it by just using the app. (most people prefer that anyways)

      But if you do not have a smartphone i’d probably just skip 1Q and not join. I’d say standard rates would apply to this, I have no idea if you’ll get charged or not, but it’s not worth $.25 if you’re going to get charged.

      So if you have a smartphone just download the app to get started!


  8. Hi Brok!

    Thanks for sharing this make money opportunity with 1Q text messages. It seems simple enough to earn $0.25 for replying a message!

    May I ask how many messages will you receive per day usually? Can people reside in other parts of the World apply?

    Thanks for your advice.

    • Hey Edmund thanks for checking out 1Q and great questions you bring up. If you’d like to learn more I do have a complete Review that you can check out.

      But to answer your questions, you can use the 1Q app in counties outside of the US, but it’s similar to surveys where they are looking for certain people, so there’s no guarantee you’ll receive any texts.

      Personally I receive a few message a week. They do say that they have a limit of 2 texts per day. It really all depends on your demographics and how many companies are looking for information from you!

      Hope this helps,
