How PaidViewpoint Works

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.
  • Privacy is respected and personally identifiable information is not sold 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 2 welcome surveys which pay 50 cents each. These will ask you fill in registration and demographic information, matching you better to survey opportunities. Completing both surveys means a new member cash bonus of $1.00.

Joining is easy and free and can be done using your e-mail address, or by connecting your Google or Apple account. An activation code is not required to receive the $1.00 sign up bonus - once you fully register and complete both of the short surveys, you will 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 completing based on expected reward range and expected length of survey. Which surveys you participate in and which you don't, is always your choice!

Every survey gets a fixed amount of cash 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.

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 e-mail notification to members when a new survey becomes available. Instead, surveys are posted to user dashboards. Upon logging in, you will see a message at the top of your user dashboard which will list the number of surveys available. PaidViewpoint recommends logging into your account regularly to be able to take these higher paying surveys, versus waiting for an e-mail invitation.

Increase Your TraitScore and Earn More

PaidViewpoint's patent-pending TraitScore system was invented to assess the candour 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 or Scam?

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.

A lot of work..

October 20, 2020 by george from United States

One of the worst surveys I have ever experienced. I take surveys every day. It took two months to get a lousy fifteen dollars. That is no exaggeration. Two months for fifteen dollars.

horrible website

July 20, 2020 by Shah from United Arab Emirates

I have joined this website five years ago and each survey is less than 5 cents and till now my earning is less than 10 dollar waste of time.

Hi Shah,

First of all, thanks for giving us a try.

We are trying to expand our surveys to worldwide members but our clients are mainly interested in opinions regarding US products and services. Occasionally our clients seek worldwide opinions but this is rare.

We wish you well and health during this pandemic.

Subpar In Comparison To Some Surveys

April 7, 2020 by Nancy from United States

I've been a member and receive about 3 surveys a month since 2013, and haven't even made $100 to date. The surveys a brief and intelligent, but have unsubscribed as not profitable.

HI Nancy,

We are sorry to hear about your experience.

A few things will decrease your number of surveys: bad consistency when answering our in-house TRAIT surveys, missing demographics, and infrequent visits to our site. Have you written to [email protected] so we could examine your account for the first two points? Do you check our site throughout the day for the surveys that spontaneously appear? These surveys disappear after other members have answered them. We appreciate you being a member for so long and hope that you write us.

Takes forever!!!!!

March 17, 2020 by Liz from United States

PaidViewpoint sadly should hang it up. Most survey sites have 20-30 surveys or more per day. PaidViewpoint MIGHT have one or two every three days. It is clear that they do not have the business that they need to provide surveys. It took me 6 months to get to $15.00. I was at $14.50 for 2 months, I thought I would NEVER get to the $15.00 cash out at 10 cents a survey. I have a high trait score too and it didn’t seem to matter. Please DON’T waste your time. There are plenty of other survey sites that are way better!

Hello, Liz,

We understand your comments and we are sorry to hear that you are unhappy with our site. Yes, PaidViewPoint is different than other survey sites; we do not offer 20-30 surveys per day. We believe that respondent fatigue, which skews results to our clients, is a serious problem. Our loyal members seem to give higher quality answers than respondents who are looking to make quick cash by answering dozens of surveys a day. We hear this from our clients.

We appreciate you giving us a try and wish you well in this bizarre time of the pandemic.

13 Months of Wasted Time!

January 24, 2020 by John from Canada

After waiting 13 long hard months, getting a survey once every 3 days for $0.03 (10 questions), reaching 10K and a total of 4 emails earning actual money. I lost all of my earned $16.47 as my cell phone number was changed due to a lousy cell phone coverage provider...I had the option to have my account frozen for get this...180 Days! That works out to less then $0.87 CAN/month. I make more then that in my bank account with daily interest - RUN AWAY from this COMPANY!

UPDATE: I went over my records...the cell phone number associated with my P.V. account was for my Huawei Nova Plus. After the 2 year cell plan expired, I got as new cell phone, an LG G7 One & a new cell provider (the previous company didn't care at all to email or call to keep me as a customer after $90/month for 2 years), a new cell number, all resulted in...having to push so hard I nearly broke my finger using Sat.Nav. (even after adjusting it to most sensitive setting), then I get no service up north while out on deliveries where it worked the previous week, then some stupid update to the O.S. changed my overhead view to side view, then it starts dropping calls & not getting texts MY BOSS WAS FREAKING OUT!!! - I NEARLY LOST MY JOB!!! This site is the ONE-AND-ONLY site where I had to include a cell number. I always use my landline number as : the land, the house, the landline have NEVER LET ME DOWN for the past 14 years I've lived here! I tried the FREEZE option, I read & understood the "keep earning money while account is frozen" aspect, but I didn't want to wait a 1/2 year for $15. I then opted for BURN account, therefore it is IMPOSSIBLE to log into a deleted account to mention : Survey Police & your Name. BOTTOM LINE : I thank-you for your help & 1/2 Passive-Aggressive reply, but it's too late! Thank-You, Bye.
