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+

Paid Viewpoint

August 25, 2013 by norman from United States

Love the site, took about 1 year to get my $15. But I still like it. Hard to get others to sign up :( I do enjoy Paid Viewpoint.
I personally recommend Paid Viewpoint to everyone.

One of my favorites!

August 22, 2013 by Vicki from United States

PaidViewpoint is one of my favorites because their surveys are short and sweet and they pay you quickly. Keep your answers honest and you will get survey invitations. Before you know it, you'll have enough to cash out.

Dont get the high rating

August 19, 2013 by Kevin from United States

I once participated in a 3 day survey for american consumer opinion panel for $45. At the rate this site pays out ill make $45 in one year. To many other options out there that consistently pay $1 and above to have to resort to getting .10 cents per survey. They probably do pay out but it will take forever for me to find out. I appreciate an honest company, but that alone does not get you a high rating.

Great Site

August 15, 2013 by Veronica from United States

Slowly but surely, you will gather a little bit of change from this site. It really depends a lot on the demographics you provide, and how honest you are when they ask you questions. The TraitScore reflects the honesty. Unlike other sites, this one doesn't ask you a million questions to keep you for long periods of time. After a while, the cents add up. The more "trustworthy" one becomes, the higher the amount.

No Surveys

August 14, 2013 by vicki from United States

Joined this site almost 2 months ago, the surveys only pay like 10 cents, take too long to rack up to anything worth spending,,, not sure how this site ranked so high on here,
