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.

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 available". 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.

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, 18+

Takes time, but is legit.

November 10, 2014 by Jodi from United States

I've been a member for about 7 months now. I generally get 2-5 surveys a week and earn between $0.10 to $0.60 per each one. I just reached my first $15 payout this week and am still working on maxing my trait score. Building up your trait score and getting your first payout takes time, but it's worth it when it does. I'm told the survey frequency and payout will increase once my trait score is maxed, so I look forward to that. I got the money from my payout in paypal less than 24 hours after I requested it. The surveys are fast and easy to do and are all "in house" so they don't require you to open a thousand new tabs to take them. I love the surveys being "in house" because I use a script blocker on my browser, and just approving their main site, I don't have to approve other things, allow scripts globally, or switch browsers just to take the surveys, which saves me time and a headache. I've never had a survey take longer than 10 minutes to complete. The only problem I have had with them is that their email alert system doesn't seem to work very well. Time sensitive surveys always have their emails delivered by the time they are done with as the emails seem to be a day behind. I make it a habit of just going to the site daily instead. As it is, I've only had one survey email arrive in the last two months.

Great Site!

November 7, 2014 by Rick from United States

I'm only giving 4 stars for now. Once I receive my first payout, then it will go to a 5 star. Really like site and easy to work with.

I've updated my rating to a solid 5. In the evening I requested my $15.59 and by the morning, it was deposited into my PayPal account.

Legitimate site

November 3, 2014 by Donna from United States

I have been a member for a few years now, and although you don't get a ton of surveys, the ones you do get, you get paid for. They send out a lot of 'trait' surveys that help to qualify you for the paid surveys. The trait surveys pay 10 cents each and the paid surveys vary in amounts. To date I have earned $111 through them and 36.95 of that just in 2014. While you can by no means 'make a living' by doing this, the extra money is nice. They pay with paypal and it arrives pretty fast, unlike some sites that make you wait weeks before you get paid.

I know a lot of people are complaining about only getting trait surveys and still waiting on a real paid survey, but be patient.. They do come in..

I love paid viewpoint! So enjoy getting the surveys and making a little money....Thanks for the rewards!

Pretty Unimpressed So Far

October 25, 2014 by Lance from United States

Started off okay with lots of chances make cash. Over the last few months or so I have had maybe 5 chances totaling about $1.00. Seems like a pretty silly site. I just cashed out about $17 and it took me about 3 months. Also all of the surveys are paid by how fast you respond, so if you're not ready right when you get the email you get next to nothing for your hard work. Boo!
