Video duration

PickFu polls are meant to be quick,so only 30 seconds for a single option poll and 15 seconds per option for a ranked poll are included in the base response price. Longer video durations will be prorated. Say you’re comparing two options — Option A is 30 seconds and Option B is 15 seconds. The total video length is 45 seconds, which is 50% more than the included 30 seconds. This means your price per response will increase by 50% per response.

Included video duration by-poll type

  • Solo poll with 1 video - 30 seconds total

  • 2-option poll - 30 seconds total

  • 3-option poll - 45 seconds total

  • 4-option poll - 60 seconds total

  • 5-option poll - 75 seconds total

  • 6-option poll - 90 seconds total

  • 7-option poll - 105 seconds total

  • 8-option poll - 120 seconds total
