Paidviewpoint is an online 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:

  • Pay cash for every completed market research survey.
  • Never screen you out once you've been invited into a survey.
  • Take "boring" out of the survey answering experience.
  • Respect privacy and do not sell personally identifiable information to anyone.

Survey Taking Experience

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. An activation code is not required in order to receive the $1.00 sign up bonus.

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 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.

  • Get paid when you have accumulated a $15.00 USD balance.
  • Receive your reward within 72 hours of request
  • Reward options include PayPal payments (all countries), or e-gift cards to Amazon, Walmart, etc. (USA, etc.)
  • If you are located outside the USA, you 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: 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 (biz 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 see 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 Trustscore. 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 surveys directly from the app, check your account balance and cash out when ready. Available on Android only.

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 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!

Referral Program

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 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 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, 13+ (16+ in the EU).

Note: McAfee antivirus has been known to mistake PaidViewpoint as a "phishing" website. You can ignore this warning.

A lot of work..

October 20, 2020 by george from United States

One of the worst surveys I have ever experienced. I take surveys every day. It took two months to get a lousy fifteen dollars. That is no exaggeration. Two months for fifteen dollars.

horrible website

July 20, 2020 by Shah from United Arab Emirates

I have joined this website five years ago and each survey is less than 5 cents and till now my earning is less than 10 dollar waste of time.

PaidViewpoint responded to this review on July 20, 2020

Hi Shah,

First of all, thanks for giving us a try.

We are trying to expand our surveys to worldwide members but our clients are mainly interested in opinions regarding US products and services. Occasionally our clients seek worldwide opinions but this is rare.

We wish you well and health during this pandemic.

Subpar In Comparison To Some Surveys

April 7, 2020 by Nancy from United States

I've been a member and receive about 3 surveys a month since 2013, and haven't even made $100 to date. The surveys a brief and intelligent, but have unsubscribed as not profitable.

PaidViewpoint responded to this review on April 9, 2020

HI Nancy,

We are sorry to hear about your experience.

A few things will decrease your number of surveys: bad consistency when answering our in-house TRAIT surveys, missing demographics, and infrequent visits to our site. Have you written to [email protected] so we could examine your account for the first two points? Do you check our site throughout the day for the surveys that spontaneously appear? These surveys disappear after other members have answered them. We appreciate you being a member for so long and hope that you write us.

Takes too long to earn

April 2, 2020 by Theresa from Canada

It took me from September 2015 to April 2020 to earn my first $15. No harm done, really, because I do surveys mostly to pass the time but really, this is a very long time!

PaidViewpoint responded to this review on April 3, 2020

Hello Theresa,

We are sorry to hear this. Something definitely was wrong here!!!! It should not take you years to earn $15.

We do not send out many survey invites. We encourage members to login throughout the day for surveys that spontaneously appear. As they are completed by other users, the surveys disappear from your dashboard. Were you logging in frequently or were you waiting for survey invite emails from us? It could also be that your demographics were missing very important criteria that could have prevented you from getting the better-paying surveys that come from our clients. If you want us to examine your account, and I'm not sure you will, please open a support ticket from within your dashboard.

Be safe during this stressful time,
Takes forever!!!!!

March 17, 2020 by Liz from United States

PaidViewpoint sadly should hang it up. Most survey sites have 20-30 surveys or more per day. PaidViewpoint MIGHT have one or two every three days. It is clear that they do not have the business that they need to provide surveys. It took me 6 months to get to $15.00. I was at $14.50 for 2 months, I thought I would NEVER get to the $15.00 cash out at 10 cents a survey. I have a high trait score too and it didn’t seem to matter. Please DON’T waste your time. There are plenty of other survey sites that are way better!

PaidViewpoint responded to this review on March 18, 2020

Hello, Liz,

We understand your comments and we are sorry to hear that you are unhappy with our site. Yes, PaidViewPoint is different than other survey sites; we do not offer 20-30 surveys per day. We believe that respondent fatigue, which skews results to our clients, is a serious problem. Our loyal members seem to give higher quality answers than respondents who are looking to make quick cash by answering dozens of surveys a day. We hear this from our clients.

We appreciate you giving us a try and wish you well in this bizarre time of the pandemic.
