Take online surveys in exchange for cash. Get paid to your PayPal account when you have accumulated a $15.00 USD balance. Payments are made within 72 hours of request. If you are located outside the USA, you will still be paid to your PayPal account 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 vary, but are typically between 5-10 minutes.
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.
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.

I first joined Paid Viewpoint in February 2016. At first I was somewhat confused about how the whole site was set up. But I stayed with them and did reaserch on them. It's very different from the other panels , the surveys are very short. This panel does not waste your precious time with 20, 30, 40 minutes or more surveys. They promise that you will not be taking long boring surveys. Trust me, when you join them, please stay, it will be well worth it. The longer you stay a true active member, the more money you will make. I'm still pretty new here, but tonight I just got my first cash out , $15.00! through Pay Pal.
I highly recommend this website, to make a little extra money on the side! The surveys are easy and short. I like that the surveys are not time consuming. I just cashed out on my first pay, thank you PaidViewpoint!!
Very easy to make a little extra money. Goes right into Paypal
Very good working with this . they gave me two survey opportunities after my immediate login.
This site would be amazing- for both companies and people wishing to make some extra cash from surveys- if the participant's time/pay-out ratio was better.
Paid Viewpoint has an inventive trait score system which measures your consistency to keep you honest, which you generally are paid a few cents for every time you take a trait survey. The idea is that the companies that come to them for research feel the data they gather is more accurate. When paid survey sites are a dime a dozen, this is very good because it helps to weed out individuals who would answer falsely or speed through a study just to get paid. The ACTUAL surveys concerning products or services seem to come more when your trait score gets higher.
However, the major issue I have with Paid Viewpoint is how much money you need to have earned to 'cash out' and how excruciatingly long it takes to make that amount. I understand that they need to present themselves to clients as being a pool of reliable panelists, and so won't just let you cash out lickety-split, but their threshold is a bit ridiculous.
I joined in June of 2015, and have JUST NOW (right before I wrote this review in May, 2016) made the 15.00 mark to cash out my earnings- and it wasn't like I wasn't trying. I checked my email every day for survey notifications, but MAYBE received three or four total. I logged in as often as possible, but most of the time, there was absolutely no survey- for trait score or otherwise- to even do. When you couple that with the 15.00 minimum payout, you have to ask yourself if it's really worth your time. Do you wait almost a year for that 15.00 mark, or do you spend your time doing surveys on sites that allow a quicker payout?
Sure, there are people who will abuse the system to get quick cash if you don't put these thresholds in place, but where should the line be drawn? Some of us do this to help fill in gaps in wages, to help pay bills, etc. The bottom line is that we are giving up our time to answer these surveys, and the incentive shouldn't take an obstacle course to reach. For those of us that look at this as a job, of sorts, I don't think it is asking too much to be compensated not only fairly, but in a timely manner.
Altogether, I give them two stars. Great idea, but very poor execution.

Hi there, Alisa, thank you for your detailed complaint. It takes a lot of effort to write such a clear and concise review. Please write us directly at Support@PaidViewPoint.com. There could be some type of programming glitch keeping you from getting surveys, a whole year to earn $15 is not right!!!! Ask for your complaint to be escalated to April and I will personally review your membership account. Thanks again for reviewing and we look forward to hearing from you.
