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

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

Earn More Though Referrals

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’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 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.

Hi again, Danielle,

Please write to me directly at [email protected]. There is always a possibility that your emails are going to our SPAM folders. We check our spam folders frequently. We noticed Yahoo and Outlook mail gets flagged often by our email server as SPAM.

I'll await your email to my company email (and I will check my SPAM folder in the next coming days).



Hi Danielle,

We hope you are well. Before we can send you our clients' surveys, we need to learn a little bit about you. The learning tool we use is called "Trait Surveys". These Trait Surveys are paid at a lower rate (probably the .10 cents you are speaking of), but we do pay you for every answer you give. Once we learn more about you, we can categorize you into a demographic for our clients to choose from. Some of our clients are very specific, that's why we ask a lot of Trait questions. Once you are 'categorized' (for lack of a better word), you will start to be invited to the better-paying Market Research surveys. Remember, try to be as consistent as you can when answering these Trait questions. We realize events in your life change, so we allow changes in answers. I hope this explanation helps. If you would like me to examine your account for glitches (yes, sometimes glitches occur), please write me directly at [email protected].
Incomplete Registration

August 26, 2016 by Sharon from United States

Tried to join, went through the whole process....but on the last screen, it asks for cell phone or other phone, yet I'm not able to enter anything. There is a symbol that something is loading, but it just keeps going around and around and never stops. I tried reloading and got the same result.

An omen that I shouldn't join?

Update: Supposedly, I am already registered as I tried to join today. I have NEVER received a survey from this company, thus my reason for trying to sign up again.

Hi Sharon,

It's definitely NOT an Omen. Please write to us at [email protected]. It could be an array of issues: network error, wifi problem, browser incompatibility issue, cookies/cache. It's always best to log completely out of any site that you are having difficulties with, close your browser, clear cookies, and restart your computer. Sometimes our computers get stuck in a 'continuous virtual loop' that we just can't understand. Hope this helps, Stacy
Where did the surveys go!

August 7, 2016 by Charlene from United States

Been a member since 02/14 and was receiving surveys every month. Then 12/14 comes around, only 3 cents shy of getting paid, and guess what, haven't had a survey since then. I wonder why, do you!

Hi, Charlene,

Please write to us at [email protected]. You're right, something doesn't sound right.

Please mention my name in your support email.

Lot of effort. No reward.

July 21, 2016 by John from United Kingdom

I spent a lot of time filling in their surveys. As I got closer to getting a pay out they stopped sending surveys. The ones they had sent me, to often said I had given different answers to the same question. I know I would not do that on purpose and started recording all questions and answers. I soon realised that the questions they claimed I gave different answers to, were in fact different questions. Their poorly worded questions were imprecise and open to a lot of interpretation. It was no surprise that I gave different answers. I wrote to them about this and got an answer that was as imprecise as their questions.

i simply don't trust them...

July 3, 2016 by Manon from Canada

You receive 3 cents for a series of have to get more points to get more money. And to get those points, you need to take surveys...who are not available. Waste of time.

Hi there, Manon from Canada,

We are sorry you are experiencing difficulties with our site. Sometimes, not getting surveys can be attributed to missing demographic information or an incomplete profile. If you'd like to get this resolved, we'd love you to write to us at Support@PaidViewPoint. There is obviously some type of glitch or problem with your account.
