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

How PaidViewpoint Works

paidviewpoint website

Earn Cash Taking Surveys

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.
  • Respect for your privacy and never selling your personally identifiable information to anyone.

Take surveys from a visually attractive, engaging platform where you can uniquely customize your survey taking experience by choosing from three website themes (light, dark, and retro).

New Member Cash Bonus

When you join PaidViewpoint, you'll be invited to complete two welcome surveys which each pay 50 cents each. They’ll ask you to fill in registration and demographic information to better match you with survey opportunities. Completing both surveys means a new member cash bonus of $1.00.

Joining is free, easy, and can be done using your email address, or by connecting your Google or Apple account. No activation code is required to receive the $1.00 sign up bonus—once you fully register and complete both of the short surveys, you’ll see the amount instantly credited to your account.

Survey Taking Experience

How PaidViewpoint Determines How Much You'll Earn Per Survey

Select the surveys you're interested in taking based upon the expected reward range or survey length. It’s your choice which surveys you end up taking!

Every survey gets a fixed amount of cash allocated to the respondents who participate in the study. That pot of money is divided up between the respondents based on their TraitScore. Adjustments are then made to level the playing field so that newer members of PaidViewpoint are treated equally compared to longstanding members. Additionally, the respondent pool is divided into groups, with the higher-level groups getting 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 once you reach a $15 USD balance in your account. Your second reward 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 regional 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).

Maximize Your Gains with Active Participation

Here's a tip: Stay engaged! Make a habit of logging in to the PaidViewpoint website regularly to seize the best-paying survey opportunities. No need to wait for emails—dive right in and watch those earnings grow.

Use a Magic Link to Access your Account

PaidViewpoint offers the convenient option of being able to log into your account using a 'magic link'. Instead of having to type in your password to access your account, simply enter in your email on the PVP website and PaidViewpoint will e-mail you a magic link that upon clicking, will automatically log you in to your account.

How to Get More Surveys

Getting Notified for New Surveys

PaidViewpoint doesn't always send an email notification to members when a new survey becomes available. Instead, surveys are posted to user dashboards. Upon logging in, you’ll see a message at the top of your user dashboard listing the number of surveys available. PaidViewpoint recommends logging into your account regularly to be able to take these higher paying surveys, as opposed to waiting for an email invitation.

Increase Your TraitScore and Earn More

PaidViewpoint's patent pending TraitScore system was invented to assess and promote the candor and consistency of survey respondents. The higher your TraitScore, the more you can earn per Research survey. A high TraitScore allows you to receive the maximum number of surveys per month.

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.

9000 TraitScore Importance: Achieve a TraitScore of 9000 to become part of the top 10% of members who earn more for each research survey!

Survey Variety

The surveys on PaidViewpoint are designed to be brief and to the point, mostly with multiple-choice questions. It's all about keeping things simple and enjoyable for you.

Surveys Are Meant to Be a Breeze

At PaidViewpoint, every survey you see is tailored to you, and is based on your profile. That way, you're never wasting time on surveys that aren't a good fit.

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 both iOS via the App Store and on Android, via Google Play.

Community Features

paidviewpoint referrals

Earn More Though Referrals

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’re allowed 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 cashes out their earnings.

To get this privilege, you must have 100+ active friends or 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?

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.

Good but Gradual (Please Read)

June 10, 2016 by Qu from United States

I've just reached enough to earn a $15 pay out. I registered on September 7, 2015 and earned $1.11 for signing up (nice!). It is now June 9, 2016 and I've finally cashed out...something like 3 months shy of a year later (not so nice). I've cashed out about 6 times with another survey site that I've used for about the same amount of time. PaidViewpoint is ok. You will get many TraitScore 'surveys' at first...but those will seem to come less frequently over time. Actual surveys for a company's use seemed to be fairly rare, but you earn more for those. You get $0.01 per answer...which can add up to $0.10 through $1.00+ per survey. The surveys themselves are very easy, require little effort and really short. Just read carefully and answer. However it may take a long time to get your reward. You must accumulate a minimum of $15 to cash out. There are no offers or polls that you can get rewards from like other sites. You can't go searching for other surveys. The only thing you get are the surveys that they present to you and you have to wait until another one appears. I assume this just depends on your demographics (the amount of surveys you're given). In the end, PaidViewPoint isn't a scam. You have access to a comprehensive list of each survey you took, the kind of survey it was, when you took it and how much you earned. If you stick with it, you will see your reward eventually. Just be sure to check the site and your email frequently for surveys. It pays off, but don't expect it to be a speedy one.

Hi there, Qu,

Thank you for your well written review. Trait surveys are more frequent in the beginning because we need to learn more about you to classify you for our customers. As you said above, trait surveys do taper off.
Something does not sound right with your 9 month wait to cash out. Please write to us at [email protected].
Sometimes some missing demographic information or a bug can prevent you from getting surveys. We hope we can speed this up a bit for you.

Thanks again for writing,
Takes Time to Receive Surveys

June 9, 2016 by Crystal from United States

I'm about 8-10 months in trying to reach my $15 cash out. In my opinion it isn't worth it. I'm barely at $10.10 and it seriously takes forever to receive surveys. This is good for penny hoarders but not for someone who wants to wait 1 year+ to receive extra cash. This is ridiculous. Once I receive my $15 cash out, I will no longer use this site or any other time wasted sites. It shouldn't have to take a year to receive a cash out, it should be at a $3-$5 minimum for people who want or need extra money in a short period of time. We are helping you get your statistics of people's living and making money off our surveys, therefore you should help us too. We should not be treated like slaves.

Hi there, Crystal, please write to me at [email protected] so I can take a look into your account.
Building a survey site is not an easy task. There are a lot of variables built into our system: missing demographics in your profile will limit or stop you from being picked by our customers, inconsistency on answering our in-house TRAIT surveys, even a missing zip code can cause surveys to stop coming. Please mention me when you write so I will get your Support Email. Hope to hear from you, April
Legitimate site

June 7, 2016 by Elle from United Kingdom

I have just cashed out $15.99 via paypal. I am a UK citizen. This is a good survey site and relies on the integrity of the panelist. It did take a bit of a while to accumulate the money but it is still an enjoyable site to use and once your traitscore reaches 10,000 then you do receive greater financial rewards for the surveys you undertake.


June 6, 2016 by Valerie from United States

Surveys are fast and easy. Straight to the point just how I like it. Takes awhile to accumulate at first but I think once you prove your loyalty, the surveys become more frequent and higher paying. Thanks paidviewpoint!

Insult to injury

June 4, 2016 by Martin from United Kingdom

Not only are surveys rare (maybe its because I'm in the UK), but apparently if u want/have to change the mobile number u have with them, it takes 180 days - yes 6 MONTHS. Considering u need a mobile number to complete ur cashout this is a bit of a problem. I'm sure they'll say its for security reasons, but in this day and age - no - just no to that as an excuse.

Anyway, to anyone looking to join a new panel, plz look elsewhere. There are much better companies out there.

Hi Martin,

We are sorry you feel this way. No excuses, but building a survey site has many, many challenges. We have experienced many 'bots' creating hundreds of accounts and trying to get referral rewards on duplicate accounts, hence the six month wait upon change of phone or PayPal address. Duplicate accounts are harmful to our clients. Having the same 'bot' or survey taker answer the same survey multiple times creates conflicting, haphazard, erroneous results. Please write to us at [email protected] so we can examine your account. We hope you understand our challenges in this new world of Internet that plagues us all. Please mention me or Survey Police in your email if you write to us.

Regards, Maxine.
