Viewsbank is open to UK residents only.
It's not really primarily a survey site, I agree with what the other person said, the only surveys you get are roughly for 5p - 30p and those are very infrequent (lucky if there's 1 every 2 weeks) and you have to keep signing in everyday to check for them. There's mention of assignments for £5 or £10 but I've never completed any of them and I don't think I would want to from the details you have to give, I started one the other day and they showed a picture of an identity card of some sort they were going to ask for so I didn't go any further..
The main idea seems to be the big paying assignments that want your details or giving suggestions in contests called "poll of the week" and "joke of the week" and the winner gets £5 but there's not much chance, you can see everyone else's ideas and the same people always get there straight away so I never bothered. People call it honest but I wouldn't call it that, there's a message on the survey page that says "check back throughout the day so you don't miss them" which is ridiculous- they think we can check constantly every day for the chance that an 11p survey might be there?
It gets really frustrating seeing that message when I've been checking twice day and only see a survey after 2 weeks. It's taken me 7 months to get to the £6 they pay at , so doing all the surveys I got took 7 months for a payout...
I'm fed up with sites that take up lots of your time then tell you that you don't qualify for a survey, or ones that wait until you're near to a (small) payout, then mysteriously stop sending invitations, or ones that just offer you an entry to a possibly non-existent draw. Viewsbank isn't one of those - they are friendly and above board. Definitely one for your portfolio.
Surveys seem designed to get very detailed information out of you- like exact renewal date and value of home insurance. This information can be sold on to generate sales leads. Promises of higher paid assignments that never materialise, but are alluded to each time a piece of sensitive information is asked for i.e. enter your exact value of insurance cover so you can be eligible for mystery shopping assignments. Very manipulative and untrustworthy. Only online surveys are assigned- paying very small sums that won't add up to anything that can be cashed out. So they gain saleable information for nothing. Looks like the positive reviews on here are posted by their marketing department! Very fishy.
Viewsbank is a very good survey site, with a low pay-out threshold of £6.00 to PayPal. Surveys are very short and sweet, and I find logging in every day is a good idea in order that you don't miss any.
I have been with them for about six months and have had three payments from them totaling over £23. Could have had more if I accepted assignments offered or checked their site more often. Had a couple of small glitches which they sorted quickly to my satisfaction in a friendly and helpful way.
I still like this company but can no longer say they sort glitches quickly. On at least two separate occasions I have needed to chase them weeks later for a reply and the latest query is still waiting a reply after four months on their system. On the positive side they are still amongst the very best in terms of how much they pay and how quickly they pay you.
