PaidViewpoint is operated by - Ask Your Target Market. 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.

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.

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+

The panel all panels should model themselves after

November 11, 2013 by Anna from United States

This is one of the best, if not the best, panels. The surveys are short, you get paid in Paypal cash -- no points -- and they pay so fast when you cash out! I usually get my money the same day I ask for it. Plus, the few times I've had to contact them about various things, they've been very responsive and helpful. Top notch company.

Reliable and easy

November 11, 2013 by Athena from United States

The rewards for these surveys are often a bit small, but the surveys are fast and easy, and the cashout process is simple and reliable, with a low-enough threshold that you aren't waiting forever to get your reward!

paid viewpoint

just want to let everyone know that this is the second time i cashed out with paid viewpoint they are a excellent survey company and they do pay you!!!

Seems OK

November 9, 2013 by Justin from United States

PV is OK. They send you a lot of surveys however they require a cellphone number to sign up, so now they can sell that information I am sure. Also the surveys they send are usually for only pennies because they only keep it open for a short amount of time and always send them out during work hours.

If you literally have nothing to do all day then I guess it may work but by the time I get to it, their surveys don't seem worth my time.

Best online surveys

November 7, 2013 by Kristin from United States

I have been a part of PaidViewpoint for about a year and have earned over $70! You always get paid for a survey, there is no screening process or getting kicked out of a survey with no pay. You take the time, you get the dime!

and it goes straight into your paypal account! No putting in your full name, or bank information, or wait for a check! The best online survey!
