PaidViewpoint is built upon 4 principles:

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.
PaidViewpoint offers online surveys in exchange for cash and gift cards. All cash-out payments are made through Paypal or their partner, Virtual Incentives.

- If you are located outside the USA, you be paid to your PayPal account, or issued an e-gift card in US dollars
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.
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 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.
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.
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 surveys directly from the app, check your account balance and cash out when ready.

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'.
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!
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, 13+ (16+ in the EU).
Note: McAfee antivirus has been known to mistake PaidViewpoint as a "phishing" website. You can ignore this warning.

Paid Viewpoint is the only survey site I use. I actually enjoying taking the surveys and can't believe I'm almost at the $100 mark of lifetime earnings. Just for spending a few minutes each day answering some fun questions. Plus it's optimized to work great on my iPhone, so surveys are a breeze. Good company!

Yes, it is true that it takes awhile to make the $15 payout limit because most of the surveys are only worth $.10 but you get to take a survey about every day or every other day. They are simple and easy to do. I like Paid Viewpoint surveys in particular because unlike most other survey panels, I can do their surveys on my cellphone and it's about 3 minutes each time. I just made my 1st payout at $15.87. I've had a few surveys that have been worth more. Most often the higher ones can range from $.40 to $.80. I actually had one that was worth a little over $2.00 last week and I was very excited. I can't confirm it yet but I feel that the higher your trait score gets the more opportunities you will have to get the higher paying surveys, so I'm hoping that I'm right. I hate how so many survey panels waste so much of your time answering qualifying questions only to be denied and not compensated at all. Paid Viewpoint gives you something every time so regardless of how long it takes to reach the goal of $15 I think it's worth it.
