Viewsbank is a social forum where you get paid to complete surveys, projects and Mystery Shopping assignments on a range of subjects and industries. In addition to your regular paid work, you can create and vote on Polls, or join the Viewsbank conversation in community Groups.
The Viewsbank panel and website is owned and operated by Consumer Intelligence - an independent research company that has been providing customer and competitor insight since 2003.
Fill out the registration form and within 48 hours you will receive a series of 5 surveys that will narrow down what types of research projects you will be invited to.
Exciting Research Opportunities
Viewsbank offers a variety of ways to earn rewards. Within the registration process, check off which types of studies you are willing to participate in. As a member, don't forget to keep in mind that all projects are first come first serve, so the sooner you confirm your spot the better.
- Online Surveys: New surveys are available on a weekly basis.
- Mystery Shopping: May be done online, on the telephone, or in-person.
- Home Research: Complete easy at home tasks and in return receive a reward.
- Online Focus Groups: May be done on a group call or in a chat room. Focus groups provide the largest rewards for participation.
Note that assignments come as a first come first served basis, and some assignments, like mystery shopping have very limited availability, so act fast if you gain an invite!
Viewsbank prides themselves in being a "social website", where members are encouraged to interact with one another. Members can vote on polls and join groups with like-minded individuals for debates and discussions. There is also the option to create your own poll, which you can get paid for! Polls that become popular within the first three days of being released will be rewarded with £10. If a poll that you voted on begins to trend, then you will collect 1p. Learn more about polls in the "poll rules" section of the website.
Earn Cash & Prizes
Most of the time when you complete a research project, you will receive a cash payment directly into your account. Some studies offer entries into prize draws for cash or other items. Surveys are usually paid in cash or prize draw entries which appear within your member account, whereas mystery shopping or at home projects are mainly rewarded with direct payment.
Earn Between £15 - £20 a Month!
Payments are calculated on the last day of each month. A minimum of £12 must be accumulated before members can redeem towards a reward. Payment is usually transferred via PayPal.
Any earnings accrued during a month are paid on the second Tuesday of the following month, provided that the threshold has been reached. Any earnings below the threshold amount will be carried over to the following month. You will only be paid for earnings that have accrued during the previous calendar month. Any earnings accrued after the end of the month but before payday will be paid the following month, again provided you are over the £12 threshold.
The Unique Quote Research Project
The Unique Quote Research Project is an ongoing research study conducted by Viewsbank. Earn extra cash by participating in this project, as each time your information is used, you will collect a £5 cash reward.

It`s a rather odd one is Viewsbank. Every couple of weeks or so, they send me a survey which is fine. The trouble is, it is the same survey lasting about 3 or 4 minutes and is one where the answers to the profile questions, are pre-filled.
Having gone through this pointless exercise, it then either says that enough people with my profile have already answered the survey, or thanks me for doing it. This has been happening for months.
Odd. Most odd.
Viewsbank responded to this review on August 17, 2022Hi James,
Thanks for leaving a review.
The surveys have been rather quiet since the new site was launched but we will be releasing more surveys to members as we get the new site up and running. We are also releasing third party surveys on the site (hopefully today) so members have more surveys to complete whilst we get our up and running.
There are also opportunities to earn money by submitting your own polls which pay £10 if they go on to trend, taking our daily admin polls and by entering our daily social media competition on Facebook and Twitter. We also run monthly prizedraws through the site itself.

Very disappointing. After the first few payouts, they failed to pay up recently- no explanation-just ignored me. Avoid.
Viewsbank responded to this review on July 26, 2022Hi Peter
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and I'm sorry to hear you haven't had a good experience of late.
I'm not sure if you are the same Peter that I'm already dealing with on email but if not could you send me an email with as much information as possible and I'll try to sort it out for you. Please email me at [email protected]

Did pay eventually, but always double check that you receive your rewards.
Viewsbank responded to this review on May 18, 2022Hi Chris
Thank you for taking the time to update your review and I'm glad to hear your payment issue was resolved.

Less than 1 invite per day so takes some time to get to payout which is done automatically by the site.
Viewsbank responded to this review on December 2, 2021Hi Ian,
Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, we really appreciate it.
I also appreciate your feedback re. surveys, please note we are always working to offer as many surveys as we can to our members. It does vary depending on projects that we have live and the demographic requirements for certain surveys though. It's often worth checking your assignment page regularly as we don't always email when a survey is available and they will appear there first.
If you haven't already, please also check out our social media pages as we also run competitions there with daily chances to win!

Payments are automatically calculated on the last day of each month. If your account balance is over the £12 threshold required to trigger payment and your account has been verified before the last day of the month, you will be paid on the next Viewsbank pay day. Pay days for Viewsbank are the second Tuesday of each month meaning the date you get paid varies from the 8th - 14th of each month. Payments are made to the PayPal account linked to the email address you have registered with us. If you need to change your email address or verify your account, you can do this by clicking on the 'Account' tab, then 'Edit' and change your email address there or click on 'SMS Mobile' to verify your account. Please note you are paid the balance of your account at the time of calculation not the balance of your account on pay day. Any money earned after the last day of the month but before pay day carries over to your new balance.
BUT - most surveys already closed before you get them Took me nearly 6 months of wasted time and frustration before I qualified for my first payment. Frankly - don't bother.
Viewsbank responded to this review on October 19, 2021Hi Martin,
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Although I'm sorry to hear you have not had a good experience.
Whilst we are lucky in that our surveys are very popular and the quotas fill up quickly, this can unfortunately be frustrating to members, as everyone who receives an invite is usually eligible to complete the survey in most situations, and if you’re not quick enough you may find the quota for your age/gender/region is already full. We do understand this is frustrating, and we do take steps to alleviate this as much as possible, such as adding members in batches to the survey, and using profile information that we hold to send surveys to the most suitable members. It is worth checking your assignment page every now and again when you have a spare few minutes as the surveys often appear there before an email is sent so it may give you a head start.
We also have other opportunities to earn, including daily admin polls, competitions, social media competitions, mystery shopping projects and trending poll payments. Members who also get involved in these do tend to end up with more regular payouts.
