SITES LIKE Viewsbank

YouGov, Panel Champ

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.

Registration Process

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!

Social Website!

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.

Eligibility: Open to UK residents only

Did pay eventually

October 3, 2023 by Chris from United Kingdom

I notice that I had not been paid I had to really chase to get the payment. Luckily I noticed that they had not paid me or I would have missed out.
They did pay eventually, after I chased them but ages after they should have paid but always double check that you receive your rewards.

Nearly very good

September 13, 2023 by Ar from United Kingdom

I subscribe to three different survey sites and this one is probably one of the better, more enjoyable ones. However, they made a change to their system recently and I queried if my points had carried over to the system. I have emailed three times over three months (to 2 diff supplied emails) and no reply from Sam Jenkins and still waiting. Great site unless you have a problem. Would have given 5 stars but marked down because of the above reason.

Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review, we really appreciate it.

I'm sorry to hear you've not had a response to any queries, this isn't like us at all as we do pride ourselves on our quick response to member communications. I'm wondering if for some reason your emails are not reaching us.
Could you please email me directly at [email protected] and I'll be happy to assist.
Please provide as much information as possible including your username and the email used on the platform.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

They'll block your account for no reason

August 8, 2023 by Harry from United Kingdom

I did two months of research and had £20 in my account and two days before the payment was due, they blocked my account without giving any reason or prompting, which has to make one suspect that they were trying to refuse to pay you

Hi Harry

This doesn't sound like us at all, if your account was blocked there will be a reason for it and this can usually be sorted by a simple provision of some ID. Can you please email me directly at [email protected] with your full name and email and I'll look into this straight away for you.

Kind regards,

Not a serious site.

August 14, 2022 by James from United Kingdom

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.

Hi 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.

Kind regards

Very disappointing.

July 22, 2022 by Peter from United Kingdom

Very disappointing. After the first few payouts, they failed to pay up recently- no explanation-just ignored me. Avoid.

Hi 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]

Kind regards,
