PaidViewpoint is built upon 4 principles:

  • Take "boring" out of the survey answering experience.
  • Respect privacy and do not sell personally identifiable information to anyone.

Payment and Rewards

New Member Cash Bonus

Join and immediately get a sign up bonus deposited into your account. Amounts vary per country, but for USA and Canada, it is $1.00.

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 TrustScore. 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 Process

Take online surveys in exchange for cash and gift cards. All cash-out payments are made through Paypal or their partner, Virtual Incentives. Get paid when you have accumulated a $15.00 USD balance. Rewards are processed within 72 hours of request. If you are located outside the USA, you will still be paid to your PayPal account, or issued an e-gift card in US dollars.

Survey Taking Experience

Getting Notified for Surveys

Receive e-mail notifications when full surveys (biz surveys) become available. These will also be displayed in your account when they become available. Upon logging in, you will see a message in the top right corner that says, "1 survey available".

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 to be e-mailed about regular online surveys when they become available, 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 Trustscore. Note that receiving trait surveys regularly may depend on your region.

Community Features

Up Your TrustScore, and Earn More

PaidViewpoint's patent-pending TrustScore 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 TrustScore 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 per answer.

VIP Community Builder

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

To get this privilege of being a part of the VIP Community Builder club, you need to have 100+ ACTIVE friends/referrals. Active means your referrals have to have been a member for more than 30 days and must be visiting the site and completing surveys on a regular basis.

Eligibility: Worldwide, 18+

Best survey panel

September 19, 2019 by Cherie from United States

I have been with PaidViewpoint for some time now. This is one of the best I have used. I have had no problems with getting my money and it is easy to do. Try this one you won't be sorry.

Excellent Website

September 14, 2019 by Marcia from United States

I really enjoyed the surveys with PaidViewpoint. I tried to take as many surveys as possible and I received several. Fast cash earnings and payout.

Newfound Fondness

September 12, 2019 by Hope from United States

These survey providers are "real", and I actually love how they set up their surveys and how you're paid for every one of them. I've been searching for a place where I could air my opinion without being critical, but being very honest and creative and "Paidviewpoint" is so awesome. May they always be around, and always have advertisers who want to set up ,accounts with them, and people who want to answer questions for them! They are the absolute best survey providers in America.

Paid viewpoint is impressive

September 11, 2019 by Catherine from United States

A lot of people think that small amounts of time & a few cents here & there doesn't add up but it does. Especially with paid viewpoint. I've now cashed out 4 times & I've turned others onto this survey site. They make it fun, simple and all in all with time spent it is well worth it for a 15.00 PayPal cash out. It's perfect for teens too & gives extra spending money if 16 or up. My oldest niece loves it

Hi Catherine,

Thanks for the great review!!!!

Thanks for the referrals, too. You can make lots of extra cash if you have a successful blog. Go to the blue people icon (Friends icon). Select one of the 3 options to earn cash each time they cash out. The limit per friend win is $25. Remember, it's not a $25 win, it's a limit up to $25 for each friend.

Have a great day,
Persistence pays off

September 11, 2019 by Ann from United States

It took almost a year to cash out the first time, and when I got a few cents near the requirement, I stopped getting surveys. But eventually I was able to cash out and they paid in one day. It took about 3 years to reach the maximum trait score.

Why on earth did I keep answering surveys? Because each trait survey paid .l0 for just a minute or 2 and you NEVER get disqualified. You barely notice that you're spending the time, so why not?


There were also a few normal surveys, and I don't remember that there were any problems with any of them.

Now that I have the maximum trait score, I am getting several surveys a day. Today so far was .82, .52, and one trait for .l0. It adds up.
The regular surveys are also short and more interesting than the usual. And I feel that PVP is treating me with more respect than some of the other companies. Not being disqualified all the time counts for a lot.

Update, September 8, 2019: Changed from 4 to 5 stars. The longer you stay, the less time it take to reach the cashout threshold. Quick, painless surveys with NO DQS. I check the site when I think of it and there's usually something there. They have a good interface and no glitches. It adds up and it's a pleasant experience. I never feel that someone is trying to trick me or that I have to fight with them.
