Paidviewpoint is a paid 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:

  • Cash for every completed market research survey. No points, chances or tickets.
  • No screen outs without a cash reward once you've been invited into a survey.
  • A carefully crafted survey taking experience that's clear, fun, and engaging.
  • Privacy is respected and personally identifiable information is not sold to anyone.

Survey Taking Experience

New Member Cash Bonus

Join and immediately get a sign up bonus deposited into your account. Joining is easy and free and can be done using your e-mail address, or by connecting your Google or Facebook account. New member cash bonus amounts vary per country, but for USA and Canada, it is $1.00. An activation code is not required to receive the $1.00 sign up bonus - once you fully register, you will see the amount instantly credited to your account.

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 TraitScore. 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.

  • Receive your first payment with a $15.00 USD balance in your account. Your second rewards redemption can be made with $10 in your account, and all subsequent redemptions can then be made with just $5 worth of earnings in your account if your account is in good standing
  • Receive your reward within 72 hours of request
  • Reward options include PayPal payments (all countries), or e-gift cards to Amazon, Walmart, etc. (for members in the USA and Canada)
  • If you are located outside the USA, you will 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 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.

Handy Browser Notifications

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: new survey 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 (research 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 find 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 TraitScore. Note that receiving trait surveys regularly may depend on your region.

App Available

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 complete surveys directly from the app, check your account balance and cash out your earnings when ready. The Paidviewpoint app is available on Android only via Google Play.

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 website (i.e. international users may find it difficult to find full paying surveys; surveys that are not just $0.03 'trait surveys'), it doesn't mean that the panel itself is illegitimate, never mind a 'scam'.

Community Features

Increase Your TraitScore and Earn More

PaidViewpoint's patent-pending TraitScore 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 TraitScore 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 for each research survey!

Referral Program

PaidViewpoint offers a generous referral program where you will earn 20% of what your referrals earn for taking research surveys. In other words, earn 20% from your referrals when they take surveys other than "Traits Surveys". You can have an unlimited number of referrals and can earn up to a lifetime maximum of $25 per referral. If you can refer friends from the USA in particular, you will likely find you can earn more.

VIP Community Builders

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 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).

LONG WAIT FOR CASHOUT PAST $15

July 4, 2015 by marilyn from United States

Its been well over 6 months i joined this survey site, seemed ok at first just 2 min surveys on my phone, but seriously it takes months to get to 15 buck cash out at a 10 cents a pop. honestly maybe even a years time. not sure if its worth hanging on to this site. On another note of importance,FYI if you change your email address for paypal they make you wait over 150 days ''extra'' to cash out your earnings!!!!!!! I had to change my email and password on paypal for security reasons, then updated email on paid viewpoint and got zapped with a LONG 150 DAY HOLD cash out policy. not cool

way too few surveys

May 11, 2015 by Igor from United States

The good thing about this site is that the surveys take only a few minutes to complete, and you don't get kicked out of them as it often happens on other sites.
The bad thing is that the surveys are so rare, and pay so little that it frankly looks like a waste of time. To give you an idea, I've averaged something like $0.20 per day with them so far.
The site claims that as your TraitScore goes up, so will your earnings, but it's a questionable statement. Plus, to increase your Traitscore, you'll have to rely on the site to send you special Trait surveys, which happens too seldom to rely upon.
I've seen some very happy customers here in the reviews, but for some reason they do not provide any details of their experience, which makes me doubt their authenticity. Wish they would share some tips with us on how they manage to make any money with this site.

where are my surveys?

December 17, 2014 by Suzanne from United States

i never get any surveys! so what's the point really?

No suveys

May 3, 2014 by Abbey from United States

Cons:
Barely any surveys (and the ones I do get are trait surveys worth $0.10 which I only get a couple per week)
Makes you send a text from your phone when you sign up.
Pretty bad pay per survey and barely any real surveys.
Pros:
Um... ? A semi-attractive interface?

Overall, this site barely gives me any surveys and I've only gotten just over $1 despite being a member for months - and that $1 is from signing up! Awful site, I don't see why it is ranked so high.

terrible

April 19, 2014 by roberto from United States

I have 2 month on this panel and is no so good as other survey panel I only have had 1 survey in 1 month and least than 1$ is no like globaltestmarket or opinion outpost which send you many survey per day. so to cash out the minimum 15$ it will take around 3 months.
