PaidViewpoint General Information


Payment Process
Take online surveys in exchange for cash and gift cards. Get paid to your PayPal account when you have accumulated a $15.00 USD balance, or receive an Amazon or Walmart e-gift card instead. 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.

Getting Notified for Surveys
Receive e-mail notifications when full surveys (biz surveys) become available. These will also be displayed in your account when they become available. Upon logging in, you will see a message in the top right corner that says, "1 survey available".

Survey Lengths
Survey lengths vary, but are typically between 5-10 minutes.

Daily Surveys
You can wait to be e-mailed about regular online surveys when they become available, 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.

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 per answer.

Referral Program
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.

New Member Bonus
Join and immediately get a signup bonus deposited to your account. Amounts vary per country, but for USA and Canada, it is $1.00.

"Top on my list"
July 26, 2017 by cathy from United States

It is my most favorite survey site! Might take some time to get to cash out, but the surveys are interesting and have easy questions to answer. Look forward to them almost daily!!

Thanks so much for your review, Cathy. Remember, checking your dashboard many times throughout the day can increase your earnings!


"Great if you can stick around for awhile"

Re: Paid ViewPoint Mobile Survey Site

1.). Surveys are few and far between
2.). Avg cash out time period is every 1 1/2 yrs.
3.). Surveys are very short
4.). Surveys lack interest and are redundant
5.). Nice UI, optimized for mobile use
6.) Payout threshold is $15, paid w/in 72 hrs.
7.). Via Paypal, Amazon or Walmart GC

Their surveys are very quick and painless. They ask a lot of redundant questions confirming personal traits.... more so than necessary. In all my time (3 1/2 yrs.), I've had very few surveys with much substance.

Their surveys are few and far between. They email you occasionally with surveys but it's best to check in and see if there is one. I forget about them, honestly. Then I'll get an email from them out of the blue with notification that I have 4 surveys waiting.

Their surveys only take a matter of minutes with no prescreening questions so that I like very much. They have a nice UI and are very mobile friendly.
The payout ($15) takes a long, long time to reach. This is only the second time I'm cashing out in almost 4 years. But, I don't check in with them daily. I forgot all about them until the recent email. In that sense, it's was a nice surprise to see that after all this time I was now able to cash out. You can cash out to PayPal, Amazon or Walmart GCs and they will give you that via email within 72 hours of cash out.

Since their surveys are so short and easy, I keep them around and don't mind answering for them when they pop up. I just know that now it will be another 2 years before I can cash out again.

I don't think the trait scores have anything to do with the frequency of surveys. I've never noticed any increase and I'm at 10000, the top.

I'm just happy for the $15 cash out today. That was a nice surprise a long time building up.

Thanks! Jen

"great surveys"

I really love this website it is very easy to use and the payout is quick.

"I am pleased very awesome site"
July 19, 2017 by rhonda from United States

It does take a bit of time but i just cashed out and I am really pleased with the site. Also check the site often on your dashboard for surveys. Sometimes there are quite a few surveys. i just kept at it and its worth the money. i think it probably took me a couple of months to get to cash out.

Thanks for your review, Rhonda! Checking your DashBoard frequently throughout the day is a great idea.

Friendly tip......
Also, the best way to maximize earnings is to post our site to your blog (If you have a blog). Be sure to get a PV referral link first. You will earn matching winnings from any one who joins under your link. To get this referral link, go to your DashBoard and select the Blue "Friends" icon. There are 3 choices to refer friends. 

"Easy, but not a lot of cash"
July 19, 2017 by Adam from United States

The good: surveys are 100% always directly within this site, so you never have a problem of being sent to some other site that bugs out or doesn't redirect back to pay you properly (and this site itself has not yet ever bugged out during a survey; in fact, the site *itself* is way shinier and with way more of an eye towards usability than most). You also 100% only get sent surveys you qualify for, and surveys are *short*. The longest survey I've ever seen was maybe 6-7 minutes, and it paid pretty well.

The bad: you don't get that many surveys. Importantly, while they *say* they'll email you about new surveys (it's in the UI and everything), apparently, and apparently *intentionally*, which is super weird, they basically never do. I don't understand why they would do that, but having discovered a way to periodically check a page for changes (running that checker *dramatically* increased my earnings on Prolific, which also never lets you know when new surveys post), I turned it on for paidviewpoint as well, and yeah, that helps a lot. (The one I use is called Distill Web Monitor, and it works flawlessly for paidviewpoint. Only works *mostly* for Prolific.)

Also, while the site itself is super shiny, they don't seem to have much of an editing presence on the surveys that come in. Some of the surveys have been great, some have been... not so great in terms of knowing what the heck they were asking. One recently in particular was clearly not written by a native English speaker, and I've gotten a good handful that asked questions forcing me to pick from several options, none of which would apply to the average person.

Nonetheless, after a few months, I *did* make it all the way to the TraitScore cap, so now I can say what happens, which is: the little TraitScore surveys do still show up randomly, about as often as always (a few a week), and those still pay 10 cents, for under a minute of survey-filling (not bad). The real surveys show up completely unpredictably (a few a month), and pay well for the amount of time they take (and then you get a small extra, also unpredictable, bonus, for having a high TraitScore). I haven't noticed being sent surveys any more frequently than when my score was lower, though. Still, I cash out *relatively* frequently, for how quick and easy surveys are (even if I do wish they were a bit more frequent), and the payout (via paypal: the best way) always takes them well under 24 hours.

So, I would recommend signing up, cause why not, but I wouldn't expect *huge* money from them.

edit: July 2017, they've recently gotten a little better recently about sending emails, too. Still not all the time, but slightly more often than "literally never". Could still be better about that, but I'm also not complaining. Pay is still just as good as ever.
