Paidviewpoint is a paid surveys website where you can earn PayPal cash and gift cards for answering online surveys.

PaidViewpoint is operated by (Ask Your Target Market) and with your help, AYTM is revolutionizing the market research industry by making quality market research easily accessible and affordable to businesses large and small everywhere.

How PaidViewpoint Works

Paidviewpoint gives survey takers around the world the opportunity to participate in paid studies on their surveys platform. Becoming a member is free and only takes a few minutes.

PaidViewpoint is built upon 4 principles:

  • Cash for every completed market research survey. No points, chances or tickets.
  • No screen outs without a cash reward once you've been invited into a survey.
  • A carefully crafted survey taking experience that's clear, fun, and engaging.
  • Privacy is respected and personally identifiable information is not sold to anyone.

Survey Taking Experience

New Member Cash Bonus

Join and immediately get a sign up bonus deposited into your account. Joining is easy and free and can be done using your e-mail address, or by connecting your Google or Facebook account. New member cash bonus amounts vary per country, but for USA and Canada, it is $1.00. An activation code is not required in order to receive the $1.00 sign up bonus - once you fully register, you will see the amount instantly credited to your account.

How PaidViewpoint Determines How Much You'll Earn Per Survey

Every survey gets a fixed portion of the sale price allocated to the respondents who answer the questions. That pot of money is divided up between the respondents, based on their TraitScore. Adjustments are made to level the playing field so that newer members of PaidViewpoint are treated equally well as compared to longstanding members. The respondent pool is divided into groups and the higher-level groups get paid more for each survey answer.

Payment Options

PaidViewpoint offers online surveys in exchange for cash and gift cards. All cash-out payments are made through Paypal or their partner, Virtual Incentives.

  • Receive your first payment with a $15.00 USD balance in your account. Your second rewards redemption can be made with $10 in your account, and all subsequent redemptions can then be made with just $5 worth of earnings in your account if your account is in good standing
  • Receive your reward within 72 hours of request
  • Reward options include PayPal payments (all countries), or e-gift cards to Amazon, Walmart, etc. (for members in the USA and Canada)
  • If you are located outside the USA, you will be paid to your PayPal account, or issued an e-gift card in US dollars

How to Get More Surveys

Getting Notified for New Surveys

Paidviewpoint does not typically send an e-mail notification to members when a new survey becomes available. Instead, surveys are posted to user dashboards. Upon logging in, you may see a message in the top right corner that says, "1 survey is waiting". PaidViewpoint recommends logging into your account regularly to be able to take these higher paying surveys, versus waiting for an e-mail invitation.

One way to easily check for new surveys is to keep a tab open on your web browser that has the Paidviewpoint website loaded. When you see a red dot on the tab icon that looks like this: new survey a new survey is available in your account! If a study is ultimately difficult to fill, Paidviewpoint may then opt to notify members when these full surveys (research surveys) are available and require more responses.

Member's Tip! Don't wait for PaidViewpoint to e-mail you surveys. Log in to your account regularly to find full surveys (non-trait surveys) posted there first.

Survey Lengths

Survey lengths vary, but are typically between 5-6 minutes. All surveys have limits placed on the number of characters in a question (120-240) and in survey answers (90-120) to give a Twitter-like feel. The number of answer choices is limited. Long, classic, complex, matrix-type questions are forbidden and the number of open-ended questions (where you have to type in answers) is limited. The maximum number of questions in a survey is limited on average, to around just 10 questions long.

Daily Surveys

You can wait until new surveys are posted to your dashboard, but you can also take "Trait Surveys" and earn between $0.03 and $0.10, on most days. These Trait Surveys not only serve to increase your earnings slowly, but also helps increase your TraitScore. Note that receiving trait surveys regularly may depend on your region.

App Available

If you prefer to take surveys on your phone, and like having direct access to your surveys account, you may consider downloading the PaidViewpoint app. You can complete surveys directly from the app, check your account balance and cash out your earnings when ready. The Paidviewpoint app is available on Android only via Google Play.

Is PaidViewpoint Legit or Scam?

It's barely appropriate to even question whether Paidviewpoint is legit or a scam. PaidViewpoint is operated by AYTM (Ask Your Target Market) - a legitimate and well-regarded market research company with millions of members worldwide. They offer legitimate surveys to their respondents and pay them on time. Although some users may have varying levels of success with the program (international users may find it difficult to find full paying surveys; surveys that are not the $0.03 'trait surveys'), it doesn't mean that the panel itself is illegitimate, never mind a 'scam'.

Community Features

Increase Your TraitScore and Earn More

PaidViewpoint's patent-pending TraitScore system was invented to assess the candor and consistency of survey respondents and to incentivize these characteristics. The higher your TraitScore, the more you can earn per survey. A high TraitScore allows you to receive the maximum number of surveys per month. Achieve a TraitScore of 9000, and become part of the top 10% of members. This means you'll earn even more for each research survey!

Referral Program

PaidViewpoint offers a generous referral program where you will earn 20% of what your referrals earn for taking research surveys.. In other words, earn 20% from your referrals when they take surveys other than "Traits Surveys". You can have an unlimited number of referrals and can earn up to a lifetime maximum of $25 per referral. If you can refer friends from the USA in particular, you will likely find you can earn more.

For members who can generate large numbers of referrals, PaidViewpoint offers a VIP Community Builder Club. The benefit of the Club is that you'll be credited with 20% of a referred user's earnings immediately after they complete a survey, without having to wait to be credited until a referral actually cashes out their earnings. To get this privilege, you must have 100+ ACTIVE friends/referrals. Active means your referrals have been a member for more than 30 days and must be visiting the site and completing surveys on a regular basis.

Eligibility: Worldwide, 13+ (16+ in the EU).

True to their word!

December 5, 2021 by Cristina from United States

I Wish I'd paid more attention as to how I ended up on PaidViewpoint, but truth to be told, I signed up thinking it would be a huge disappointment like numerous others I'd try before. I knew when the cash out time came they'd offer me gift cards instead of cash. I was wrong. I like the fact that you can use your PayPal acct. to cash out. Their surveys are easy, fun and not time-consuming. I look forward to receiving them. I now get more surveys than I did when I started and it's enjoyable. I let my cash build up to $56 this time instead of cashing in at $15. Love this site 💕!!

Good Company

I do surveys for them as often as they have them and what I like the most is that there is always some form of compensation even if you don't get to finish a complete survey. Will continue with them.

Easy Survey Panel

December 3, 2021 by Estella from United States

It is very easy to cashout with this survey company. It took me a while to reach $15 but it was worth the wait. I would recommend this site to anyone. You don't have to wait long to get paid. You will really enjoy this site and you will not be sorry.

Legit Survey App

December 2, 2021 by Megan from United States

I was leary when first learning of Paid Viewpoint. Although I feel this app could def give more surveys to increase your earnings, I can't complain. I have always received payment in less than 72hrs. I'm able to cash out at as little as $5.00
Five stars from me!!⭐🌟⭐🌟⭐

Thanks for your review, Megan! To optimize the number of surveys you receive, be sure to have all your demographic information completed and up to date, make sure your notification settings are on, and check your dashboard throughout the day for surveys that are not emailed out. Thank you for being a member of PaidViewpoint, and happy earnings!

Slowly but Surely!

December 2, 2021 by Jennifer from United States

Great survey site, you just have to be patient to get to the first payout threshold. This site is a relief compared to other sites, where you are spending so much time answering questions, just to find out 20 minutes later that you don’t qualify. The surveys are usually short, fun to take, and free of technical issues. I successfully cashed out and I will continue to take surveys on this site, it’s enjoyable and legit! Great way to make money in your spare time, just take it slow, consider every question carefully, and manage your expectations. This is not a get rich quick scheme, it’s a solid site that pays if you patiently put in the work.
