    Difference between saying: I've done it once. VS I've done it one time.

    Difference between saying:

    I've done it once.

    VS

    I've done it one time.

    What would a native speaker say? Are they both okay?

    They are equivalent and have the same meaning.

    I'd be more likely to use once in most contexts, but one time is fine. To add emphasis, I might use one time.
