Paidviewpoint is a paid surveys website where you can earn PayPal cash and gift cards for answering online surveys.

PaidViewpoint is operated by (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, and more (for members in the USA, UK, and Canada).
  • If you are located outside the USA, you will be paid to your PayPal account in US dollars. Gift cards will be converted into your local currency (from USD) and are available in $5 and $10 denominations.

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 regularly increase your earnings, but they also help increase your TraitScore. Note that receiving trait surveys regularly may depend on your region.

PaidViewpoint App

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 mobile app, check your account balance and cash out your earnings when ready. The Paidviewpoint app is available on Android only, via Google Play.

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.

9000 TraitScore Importance: Achieve a TraitScore of 9000 to become part of the top 10% of members who earn 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.

Is Paidviewpoint Legit?

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 pay more than $0.03 'trait surveys'), it doesn't mean that the panel itself is illegitimate, never mind a 'scam'. Paidviewpoint is a safe, secure, online surveys website.

Eligibility: Available in 50 countries worldwide. Must be 13+ (16+ in the EU) to participate.

Note: McAfee antivirus has been known to mistake PaidViewpoint as a "phishing" website. You can ignore this warning.

Been close to cashing out for months.

February 18, 2015 by Brandon from United States

I've been a member for about a year and have yet to cash out. Things were going great at first. Trait surveys every day... Yes, the payouts for these surveys are small, but it's something. There were the occasional surveys with higher payouts as well. Once I got close to the $15 point to cash out, the surveys stopped. I might 1 trait survey every few months... I might be able to cash out in a few more years....

Not there for me

January 18, 2015 by Don from United States

I guess it all depends on your age, sex, status etc. I get very few surveys from PaidViewpoint, and when i do, by the time I sign in it's gone; I get Sorry, this survey is now closed. So, it might work for you, or you may be like some of us who don't get anything. They do send out the ten cent trait surveys quite often, but the closer you get to cash out, even they stop. I have been able to cash out once in almost two years. Close again now, but no surveys. And my trait score by the way is at max, 10,000.

Low payout and high minimums

September 26, 2014 by Samuel from United States

This website feels as though it was designed to avoid paying out rewards to anyone. Surveys are often rewarded with pennies. Surveys are not offered daily. If you answer a question differently than before the survey will reprimand you for changing your answer. Surveys are low paying, infrequent to the point that it is nearly impossible to reach their high cash out threshold. Not worth the time.

A HONEST review.

June 12, 2014 by Fred from Australia


I joined this site over 1 yr ago via "surveypolice" site, (probably because of the high ranking.) SO here is my REVIEW for the year:

#1 The 1 stars are for the interface, (ummmm yes, pretty !!!)
#2 After 1 year I have a total of $9 :/ most was acquired with the 0.03c daily trait survey, (DAILY) until i reached 10000 trait points.
#3 So, having a "traitscore" of 10000, i am in the top %10, "privileged" members!
#4 I have had about 8 x (0.20c) and 1 x ($1.35) surveys. (don't get jealous)
#5 Sorry, I can't comment on the payment process, it says I've got another $5+ to go before I can redeem it :( (come back next year, i'll let you know then, but it's NOT about the money, right!)
#6 I'd missed this ambivalent "experience" if it wasn't the highest ranked site in EVERY country in the world (0.03c / day,) except US and Canada (0.10c / day) & sorta manages to keep on the leaderboards, Amazing !!!
#7 PV appears a "legit" SURVEY (NOT $ making) system. So, it isn't what these over rated (embellished) 4+ star reviews IMPLY. Its a flash, robotic surveying system, poorly managed, happy to just hand out 3 (pseudo) cents every other day, carrots anyone? There is nothing dishonest about that!
#9 PV, you just lost another star for the RIDICULOUS 100 "slider" questions (15 mins) and pays $0.03. (its not about the money so when does the fun start?)

(i'll keep y'all updated)

Not worth the time

January 22, 2014 by Tony from United States

I have been a member for over a year. I have made 5 dollars so far. I can make that in one day in MANY other sites! This should be ranked much lower.It has been a waste of time.
