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

Most surveys are not e-mailed and instead, 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 be able to take these higher paying surveys. E-mail notifications when full surveys (biz surveys) become available are rarely sent.

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.

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!

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+

This is one of the few sites that actually does what it says. It takes awhile to reach the $25.00 cash out, but once you do you don't have to worry about payment.

Legit Survey Company

July 29, 2013 by Danielle from United States

I really like Paid Viewpoint. I get a survey usually every other day, sometimes every day. Most surveys are just verifying previous demographic information and only take 2 or 3 minutes. Those are about 10 cents each. Two or three times a month I get a slightly longer and more in-depth survey about a particular subject. Those take up to 10 minutes and so far the highest one paid me about one dollar. The earlier you answer the special surveys, the more bonus cash you earn. You earn a 'trait score' for consistently providing honest answers, with 10,000 being the highest. Minimum 'vested' threshold for cashing out is $15.00, and it gets paid directly into PayPal. After you cash out, you need to be vested to $15.00 before you can cash out again.

Very Convenient Payout
