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 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, and more (for members in the USA, UK, and Canada).
  • If you are located outside the USA, you will be paid to your PayPal account in US dollars. Gift cards will be converted into your local currency (from USD) and are available in $5 and $10 denominations.

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.

Handy Browser Notifications

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 regularly increase your earnings, but they also help increase your TraitScore. Note that receiving trait surveys regularly may depend on your region.

PaidViewpoint App

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 mobile app, check your account balance and cash out your earnings when ready. The Paidviewpoint app is available on Android only, via Google Play.

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.

9000 TraitScore Importance: Achieve a TraitScore of 9000 to become part of the top 10% of members who earn 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.

VIP Community Builders

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.

They offer legitimate surveys to their respondents and pay them on time.

Although some users may have varying levels of success with the website (i.e. international users may find it difficult to find full paying surveys; surveys that pay more than $0.03 'trait surveys'), it doesn't mean that the panel itself is illegitimate, never mind a 'scam'. Paidviewpoint is a safe, secure, online surveys website.

Eligibility: Available in 50 countries worldwide. Must be 13+ (16+ in the EU) to participate.

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

Great site

January 28, 2023 by Ashley from United States

I have enjoyed my time being a member of this survey panel. The surveys are fun and easy. Even though u have to get to $15 dollars before you can cash out. But you just keep doing the surveys as quick as you get them and you will cash out before you know it. I have cashed out 3 times already. And I get my reward fast. Many rewards paypal, Amazon. Great site, glad I am a member.

Paid viewpoints has been great and easy to use. I have never finished a survey then been told, You do not qualify or the survey is full. I definitely recommend Paid viewpoint.

Best Site 100%

January 25, 2023 by Deborah from United States

UPDATE: The number one feature this site has over all others is that you never waste time competing for or trying to qualify for surveys, or finding out half way through that the quota has been met. Ever. They send you what is relevant to you according to your profile. Cash out is quick and painless. I just keep the site running in the background all day and monitor it for available surveys. Absolutely love this site and am changing my original review from 4 stars to five.

*UPDATE* Thanks for responding Bri! I tend to with hold a 5 star rating in the beginning if I am new to a particular site or product, just to give myself enough time to get really familiar with the site and to examine whether or not it exceeds expectations consistently. A lot of things can seem great in the beginning, but sometimes fall short as time goes by. I don't anticipate that happening with PaidViewpoint :) but I just need more time.


I have spent a lot of time trying out different survey sites and this one is my favorite. You don't waste time trying to "qualify" for surveys because they only send you the ones that fit your profile. While they only offer 1 to a few surveys per day on average, the ones you complete are meaningful and I was able to hit the $15 threshold within 2 weeks. Just make sure you respond fairly quickly when you've been alerted that one is available so as not to miss the quota limit. I've been paid generally between 30 cents up to $2.00 for each completed survey. Their site is very easy to maneuver and I just did my first cash out! Highly recommend this site for passive income!

Just Fair

January 22, 2023 by Tim from United States

I use to really like doing surveys with them, signed up around March 2020. Doing surveys with them it is nice I know when there is a survey to do I will be approved for it and it is so nice that way. But the surveys come slowly, very slowly the main ones are the trait surveys for a whopping 10 cents.

My score is at the highest, I am always honest, I take my time with each survey, as I do enjoy them. The past month though anytime I get near the 5 dollar payout, the surveys quit coming in..... they truly do it is almost funny because it happens right when I reach the 4.25 cent mark, that they don't come in, and maybe every couple days a 10 cent survey will pop up. It is like they don't have the funds or something and are waiting on money before they can offer more surveys to let you cash out. Somethings up because again this happens every time for close to 2 months so I guess if and when I get my last 5 bucks lol I will most likely no longer using the site if they are going to do that to me,

Hi Tim.

Thanks for the feedback! We don't guarantee any specific schedule for surveys, as it is based entirely on what our clients order and if you match the demographic they're researching. It is normal to see an ebb and flow in the Research Surveys you see. To maximize the number of surveys you see, we recommend you make sure that your notifications are turned on, your demographics are filled out completely, and you are checking your dashboard throughout the day for surveys that aren't emailed out.

If you would like for our support team to look at your account to see if there's another issue affecting your ability to receive surveys, please open a support ticket from your account.
