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.

Enjoyed the platform

July 13, 2013 by Sherry from United States

They send surveys often. Easy to take on mobile phone. Whenever I had a technical problem the support team was responsive.

great site

July 9, 2013 by Tony from United States

I have been paid twice $15, its cool.


July 7, 2013 by Carol from United States

I belong to this survey panel for about a year. I have cashed out several times and have received by payout within 3 days. Sometimes I am able to complete the first come first served but other times I am too late. I receive several small surveys during the week. I am very happy with this site.

Very, very slow after 1st cashout

June 30, 2013 by Jennifer from United States

My first cash out was pretty easy and fast. I was getting a survey everyday, and the "First come, first served" were at a reasonable time and I was able to complete them. Now my progress is beyond slloooow! I get surveys maybe twice a week and the "first come, first served" arrive at 3:30am. I feel that they tracked me to decide the opportune time that I would NOT be available. After two months I have $1.30. My trait score is 8950, which means I am reliable and truthful, so why no surveys? Disappointed.

Paid Viewpoint? Where?

June 29, 2013 by Linda from United States

I have been trying to join Paid Viewpoint for months. The first several times I tried to call their verification number I got a voice mail message saying the mail box was full. Customer Service requested MY telephone number, the time that I tried to call etc. They said they would find out what was going on and call me back. They never did.
Today I tried again. It said the number has been disconnected. I don't get it. Everyone else seems to love this site. What gives?
