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

PaidViewpoint is operated by aytm.com (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. 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 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.

  • 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.
  • 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 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 (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 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 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 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'.

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 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).

I am a member of a number of survey forums and have only recently found Paid Viewpoints. They have been very trustworthy. I always get compensated for time spent on surveys. The PayPal payout is quick and simple. I love that I only need $10 to cash out.

Thanks for your review, Eileen! We're glad you're finding the cash out process quick and simple.

Just a reminder for our new members that you will need to cash out your first time at $15. For our members in good standing (like Eileen), some people will be able to cash out at $10 the second time, and $5 each time after that!

One of the Best

October 9, 2021 by Carol from United States

To get a 5 star review, I'd like to see more surveys.

I got a response from PaidViewpoint with an outstanding explanation of why things work the way the do. It's great to know they pay attention to what their members are thinking. I feel MUCH better about their program. Now they are tops on my list1 Keep up the good work :0)

The surveys are relatively easy albeit somewhat repetitious. The format is basically the same for each survey which makes it easy to follow along.

The "Trait Score" seems a bit pointless. After reaching 9000 points you're in the upper 10% of their members and are supposed to earn more for each survey—sometimes you do, sometimes you don't.

They don't offer very many surveys. Sometimes there are days and days where there aren't ANY surveys to take. So progress is slow.

The payment was easy (I use the PayPal option), was in my account the next day even though they say 72 hours for processing. Guess I can anticipate longer waits.

Great surveys. Fun user Experience

October 8, 2021 by Renetta from United States

After all the years of trying to find some surveys to take to let my opinion be made known this is one of the best companies I've ever found. Easy to read, not to many questions, nice rewards. Definitely *Not a scam*.
