PaidViewpoint Review – a Unique Opportunity (For Some)

PaidViewpoint Rating

PaidViewpoint has the unique feature that you always qualify for the surveys offered. But it will only be worth joining if you live in English-Speaking countries.

If you are looking for a site to earn some extra money by taking surveys, it is likely you have heard about PaidViewpoint.

But is PaidViewpoint legit and really a way to earn or a scam site to stay away from?

I have tested it thoroughly and have been a member for a long time by now. So if you consider joining, let me first share my experiences with you, so you know what to expect.

Let me right away reveal that PaidViewpoint has some unique features that very few survey sites have, but I will go more into details about this later. Let’s start with the basics of the site, how it works, and what it offers.

What is PaidViewpoint and what does it offer?

PaidViewpoint is a paid survey site that is operated by aytm (Ask Your Target Market).

Unlike many other survey sites, this site only offers paid surveys and no ads to view for money, or anything else.

This is not necessarily a bad thing, as it makes it very simple and easy to use so it is very easy to get started with. And it is, of course, 100% free to join and use.

In general, the 3 things PaidViewpoint offers are:

Option 1 – PaidViewpoint surveys:

The main way to make money on PaidViewpoint is by doing regular surveys. There are quite frequent surveys like this, depending on where in the world you live.

The great thing about surveys through PaidViewpoint compared to other survey sites is that you will never be offered a survey you will then not qualify for.

This makes PaidViewpoint very unique and also means you will not waste any time trying to click surveys that you will not be able to take. So you know that when you are offered a survey on PaidViewpoint, you will with guarantee be able to complete it and get paid for it.

This is a feature that I really appreciate about PaidViewpoint.

Once you have logged in, you can see in the right corner of your screen if you have any surveys available.

You will always qualify for the surveys you get inside PaidViewpoint.

You just have to make sure to log in regularly to check for new surveys as you will not necessarily receive email notifications when new surveys are available.

Also, the surveys on PaidViewpoint are, in general, quite short and are usually multiple-choice questions so they are easy to take.

Option 2 – Trait Score surveys:

PaidViewpoint offers at least one daily paid survey, that is called “Trait Score”.

These surveys only give very small rewards, but also only takes 1 min to do, and it will eventually be a part of giving you more surveys and higher rewards for the surveys.

I know this might sound confusing right now, but I will explain more about the Trait Score later, so it becomes clear.

Option 3 – Referral program:

PaidViewpoint also offers a generous referral program, where you will be able to make up to $25 per person you invite to the site, as you will get a bonus every time they do a survey (this money will not be taken from the person you invite, but be paid by PaidViewpoint).

Before you get too excited about that potential bonus, be aware that it is not as easy as it sounds. You do not get $25 just for inviting a person. If a person you invite joins, you will get 20% in commission of whatever that person is making, so you will only get a bonus, if the person actually takes surveys.

And the maximum you can then get per person is $25. But still a nice way to make a bot extra money, if you know a lot of people that are interested in joining and doing surveys.

How does PaidViewpoint pay?

Every time you take a survey or a Trait Score survey, you earn dollars that you can see in your account right away.

You can then have this cash paid out through PayPal, which is the only payout method.

paidviewpoint payout option
You get paid via PayPal.

You have to make $15 before you can request a payout. I personally prefer a payout threshold a bit lower, but this is still very good compared to some other survey sites and not difficult to reach, if you live in the right countries.

You will get a $1 dollar bonus just for signing up and filling out your basic information, which will only take a few minutes, so that is a nice start. Once you request a payout, it will be in your PayPal account within 2-3 days.

Be aware that you need to have a verified PayPal account. This is free to get but you just need to make sure you have your account verified before you can get your earnings out.

What is PaidViewpoint Trait Score?

I have already mentioned the Trait Score a few times now, and think it is about time to explain what it is.

It is a score, that determines how well PaidViewpoint knows you, and how honest you are. Every day, you can take a short Trait Score survey, that pays you a few cents, but also only takes 1-2 min.

This is not the way you make real money on PaidViewpoint, but a way to find out how consistent and honest your answers are. In online surveys, it is often a problem that people are not honest and just rush through, so PaidViewpoint has made a system that tests your consistency through these little daily surveys.

The Trait Score surveys is also a way for PaidViewpoint to get to know you better, so you can get the surveys that match you. This does not mean the site wants to know your personal identity, but know more about your interests, demographics, and traits.

Because of this, you are also only offered surveys you can actually participate in and finish. Unlike some other sites, once you have started a survey, you know that it will not stop in the middle, and say you do not qualify anyway. This is a very unique feature, and a very great thing about PaidViewpoint.

These Trait Score surveys are not the way you will make the most money at the site – or in a way it actually is. Because every time you have done one of these Trait Score surveys, you will get points.

When you reach 9000 points (took me about 3 months), you are one of the trusted survey takers, and you will more often get surveys, and be paid higher rewards for them.

So even though the Trait Score surveys only pay very little, it is definitely worth spending 1-2 minutes a day doing them. In the long run that will give you a lot more opportunities on PaidViewpoint.

How much money can you make on PaidViewpoint?

Like with any other paid survey site, how much time you want to spend is up to you. The daily Trait Score surveys only take 1-2 min. They are worth doing, as they in the long run will give you the chance to make more money.

The other surveys pay pretty well in relation to time compared to many other survey sites. It is difficult to say it more precise, as the time and reward depend on the different surveys, and on your Trait Score.

But in general most surveys only take around 5 minutes and are very easy to answer as they are usually multiple choice questions. PaidViewpoint does however have limitations in the time you can spend on it. Because it only has a few ways to earn, and only surveys of high quality, there are not as many.

Some days there will only be a Trait Score survey you can do, and then you can maximum spend 1-2 minutes on the site.

So in that way PaidViewpoint is not the site that gives the best earning opportunities, as there are not as many daily opportunities as there is on a site online reward portal like SwagBucks. But PaidViewpoint does have other advantages and it is very easy to use, so it can definitely be a nice site to join and take the surveys you are offered.

One thing to be aware of is that you have to check the site yourself to see if there are any available surveys. In the settings of your account, you can ask to get email notifications when there are available surveys, so this can save you from having to go to the site to check.

You will, however, not be told by email when there is a Trait Score survey available, but it is also easy to figure out when they are available – there will be 1 (sometimes 2) of these every day.

And please remember that paid surveys in general will not make you rich or make you a full time income, but they can give you some nice extra spending money. Just to clarify that and manage expectations.

But PaidViewPoints defintiely does pay so it is a legit way to make a bit of extra cash. I have been paid by it several times myself.

Above you can see my PaidViewpoint payment proof so you know it actually will pay you once you have reached the payout threshold.

You can take your money out as soon as you have reached the threshold or you can leave them in your account until you have accumulated more if you prefer this.

In which countries is PaidViewpoint available?

PaidViewpoint is available worldwide, and you can sign up no matter where in the world you are. How many surveys you will get can, however, vary greatly depending on where you live.

There are most frequently surveys to people living in the US, Canada and the UK, and to some extent Australia. In the rest of the world, there will occasionally still be a survey, but it will be very rarely.

So if you do not live in one of the countries above, this might not be the right site, but then there are other sites in your country instead.

PaidViewpoint is however growing worldwide, so hopefully at some point, more surveys for different countries will be available.

You can participate in surveys, even if you are in another country than where you live, contrary to some other survey sites, so you can use it even when traveling.

How do you use PaidViewpoint?

I have made a short video walkthrough and tutorial of PaidViewpoint so you can get an inside look and see exactly how it works and how to use it:

Can you get support?

There can be cases where you need to get in touch with a survey site to clarify something about your account or the platform. Whether it is then easy to get in touch with the company behind tells a lot about a survey site.

I have myself contacted PaidViewpoint a couple of times with a few questions. All the times I have received a quick, useful and friendly answers.

This is a sign of good service and respect for their members and another aspect I really appreciate about PaidViewpoint.

Final verdict

In general, I am very positive about PaidViewpoint. It is definitely not a scam, as it gives you a chance to make money without any investment.

As any other legit survey site, it is free to join and use. But it is not necessarily the a good option for all.

So let’s finish this review by summing up the pros and cons so you can get a better overview before deciding if it is for you or not.



  • Very user-friendly and easy to use
  • Pays out through PayPal
  • Good rewards in relation to time spent
  • You always qualify for surveys you are offered
  • Surveys are quick to answer and interesting
  • Emphasizes on honesty and rewards consistency (the Trai Score system)


  • Not very many daily opportunities
  • Not good opportunities for all countries

PaidViewpoint definitely has many more pros than cons, in my opinion.

One of the only cons is that how many surveys you get, can be very different depending on where you live, so it is only really worth joining, if you live in the US, Canada, the UK or Australia.

That is not as such a bad thing as that is just the markets PaidViewpoint are mainly working with. It just means that if you do not live in one of these countries, you should probably join other surveys sites instead, as it would take you way too long to make enough for a payout.

PaidViewpoint is the only survey site I have seen with a system like the Trait Score, where you can get extra earnings, if you are consistent and honest. I kind of appreciate this feature, and I really like that it also means you will only be offered surveys that you will for sure be able to finish and get paid for, as they know more about which surveys you match.

More survey sites could learn from a system like this, where you never will be screened out once you have been offered a survey.

So in general, I definitely recommend you to join PaidViewpoint, if you live in one of the countries mentioned above.

How do you sign up for PaidViewpoint?

I hope this review gave you a good idea of what PaidViewpoint is about, and if it is for you.

  1. Hello!

    (I apologize in advance if this is repetitive from previous commenter)

    I’m a US resident, and I’ve been using PaidViewpoint for about ~10 months now, and it’s the only site I truly feel comfortable with.
    I had joined several others over the years (Swagbucks, InstaGC, SurveyMonkey, and others), but I stopped each only after a few weeks.

    The main reason is, unlike PaidVP, many sites involve taking surveys in other websites (such as PeanutLabs). Some even go through two or even three sites to actually take the survey. I prefer to have all of the surveys taken in the website itself. Does that make sense?

    I’m also not interested in offers (whether product testing or buying products and getting money in return). I would be okay with doing (micro?) tasks as long as it is done on the survey site itself, not opening into a 3rd party site. I’m also partial to tiny daily rewards (such as the Inboxdollars “PaidEmails” function)

    So I was wondering if you have any suggestions for something that can meet my very stubborn criteria (haha).
    1) Surveys are done on the site itself, not a third-party site
    2) Simple layout (site isn’t crowded with a dozen different categories to earn money)
    3) Ability to earn tiny rewards with very simple actions (a click or two)
    4) I believe PaidVP is the only site where you don’t get screened out of surveys, but I was wondering if there was a site that at least minimizes that risk.

    Thank you so much!

    • PaidViewpoint is quite unique in many ways.

      Based on your criteria, I have a few suggestions for sites you might enjoy. Have you tried Toluna, YouGov, and LifePoints Panel?

      All of these sites have their own surveys and do not have all kinds of distractions other than surveys. YouGov and Toluna even have their own apps which makes it very easy to take the surveys.

      On these sites, you will still sometimes not qualify for the surveys. PaidVP is the only one that guarantees this will never happen. But in my experience, you qualify more often than not on these sites and they also have more surveys available than PaidVP sp overall the earning opportunities are better.

      Hope this helps and let me know how it goes.

    • There is not as such an activation bonus code. Sometimes they might run promotions, but in general, there are no bonus codes for PaidViewpoint.

      • Thanks for your reply.
        But on there site while registration it shows enter activation bonus code. It is said to be that through activation bonus code you can get more surveys. Please check once and let me know.

        • Sorry for the late reply but I wanted to get in contact with PaidViewpoint to make sure.

          The activation code will NOT give you access to more surveys. It is a promotional code they use once in a while to give people a tiny joining bonus when they join when they run certain campaigns. But it will NOT affect how many surveys you get after you join.

          And you can easily join without one since they do not always have campaigns like this.

          I hope this clarifies it.

          • Thanks for your reply.

            Do you know any surveys that guarantees you will always qualify or which can pay even if we don’t qualify?

          • PaidViewpoint is unique in the way you know you will always qualify. I have not yet found others that guarantee it the same way. PointClub does give some points if you do not qualify though and in most cases, Toluna also gives a few points if you do not qualify.

            Hope this helps.

  2. Just joined based on your recommendation.
    Even though I live in South Africa it is always useful for me to have another site for extra surveys, even if there are fewer surveys.
    what I like about the this site so far is that the give you a monetary value for the surveys rather that points. this makes it easier to see you earnings. There is also an option to download the information they have about you.

  3. Hello I just registered with PaidViewpoint, it has been about a week now and wanted to know when entering your phone number to verify cash out from Paypal, must the phone number you enter be a cell phone number? I have a cell phone but entered my landline phone number by mistake, would that be a problem when it is time to verify my phone number to cash out or does it not matter the phone number entered is a cell phone or landline phone number?

    Thank you,


    • I think it has to be cell phone – but actually not sure. Just now I used a cell phone back when I first verified my account. But I would suggest you contact their support to make sure. They are usually pretty good at getting back fairly quickly.

      And feel free to keep me updated about how it goes.

  4. Slow but steady way to earn some extra cash. I like the fact that I don’t spend much time on the site and don’t waste time being screened out of surveys. Just a few minutes most days. It doesn’t pay much but is a good site in addition to the others I use. Their support is excellent if you have any issues. Thanks Mikael.

    • Not sure what you mean? If you want to join PaidViewpoint, you can just go to the site through the link above and start taking surveys. How many you will get, however, depends a lot on the country you live in.

    • Hi Momo,

      From all the sites I have tested, I have not yet found another site that guarantees you will always qualify. On most sites you will sometimes not qualify – and on some more often than others.


  5. I live in the USA and have been a member of PaidViewpoint for 3 years. I was also a member of their sister survey site, Instant Cash Sweepstakes (ICS), for 3 years until they shut that one down at the end of January 2017. I was on both sites almost daily, answering surveys honestly. I have a regular job, so it was some extra money for me. I made more money on ICS than on PaidViewpoint and was disappointed when they shut ICS down. ICS was very straightforward with their members giving us plenty of notice about when they would shut down, so that members could cash out before the shut down date. While I was a member of ICS, I joined PaidViewpoint by clicking on a link on ICS’s website and remained with PaidViewpoint when ICS shut down. I received surveys very frequently, usually every few days until May 2017. In the past 3 years, each time I reached $15, the amount you need to earn to cash out, they always came through. I have to give them that much credit, they DID pay. Then at the end of May 2017 the surveys just stopped. I leave the site open and refresh the screen daily to see if a new survey shows up. For a few days in August, I received a few surveys, but nothing since then. I currently have $14.73 and beginning to wonder if they stopped sending surveys because they don’t have the money to pay and wonder if this site will shut down soon too.

    • Hi Cristina,

      Thank you very much for sharing your experiences.

      I have not heard any info about anything like that regarding PaidViewpoint, so do not know why you have suddenly stopped receiving surveys. It does sound a bit strange. But in my experience, PaidViewpoint is a very honest site, and it also has a responsive support, so I would suggest to write them and ask. Maybe there is a reason they have a period with less surveys for you, and worth checking it out with them directly.

      A way you can still keep earning a bit every day even though you do not get many surveys is to use the Traitscore surveys. There should be at least one available a day. They do not pay a lot, but since you are so close to reaching the payout limit, it can be a way to get to it fairly quickly no matter what.

      If you get in contact with the PaidViewpoint support, feel free to update here about any info, as it is great to know. Thanks.

      All the best,

  6. I am interested in this PaidViewpoint survey site. Because I think, it is unique site after reading. I haven’t done any survey. But I have read about other survey sites before. However, all of survey sites pay a few cents for a few minutes. I think it’s worth for a person who want to get pocket money. For me, if I will get some pocket money every month, I will be happy. But unfortunately, I don’t live in the countries where there are frequent surveys. Thanks for this information.

    • Thanks for your comment Nanshilar. 

      Yes, PaidViewpoint is unique in some ways. A shame that it does not offer good opportunities in your country. If you are interested, you can in stead check out my Top 10 list – maybe some of those have opportunites in your country.

      All the best,

  7. Mikael, this is a great review on Paid Viewpoint, you stated that it’s not a scam because they provide a legitimate opportunity for someone to earn extra money. However, Paid Viewpoint will not be a great fit for someone who is serious about creating a profitable online business that will allow them to earn enough money to quit their job. I’m not a fan of this type of program because it seems like a waste of time.

    • Thanks for your comment. You are quite right that PaidViewpoint (or any other survey site for that matter) will not earn you enough to quit your job. But not everyone wanting to make a bit extra online are doing it to quit their job. And if it is just to make some extra money on the side without having to make any investment and without having to do any training, paid surveys can be a great way. It all depends on the goal and our motivation.

      All the best,

  8. Hi Mikael,
    have you actually cashed out from paidviewpoint yet? I have tried a few of these survey websites and most surveys I don’t get qualified. Maybe it’s good for teenagers or people who have a lot of time to waste, not good for people who want to make real money online! But just out of curiosity I watched the demo on the site and it looks interesting. I’m going to sign up under your link and have a look around.

    • Hi Kent,

      At some surveys sites it is more difficult to qualify for a survey than others. And some takes a bit of patience to find the surveys you qualify for – it depends where you live, age, and very much also on the site you sing up for. But one of the great things about PaidViewpoint is that you will not be offered a survey you do not qualify for. Once you have been offered a survey, you will get paid for it. Many other survey sites could learn from this. And it also has the small daily trait score surveys that everybody can do every day. Unfortunately for me, it does not offer that many surveys in the part of the world where I live (Scandinavia), so for me it takes a long time to get the payout and are just getting close to it now. So for me, it is not the best way to earn from surveys based on where I live, and I use and make a lot more on some of the other sites in my top 10 list. Other than that, it PaidViewpoint is a really great and easy to use site, and also takes a short time to do the surveys it has compared to other sites. So for people that live in a country where they offer more regular surveys, this would be a great site to use.

      In general, I do not think survey sites are a waste of time. But they can be, if you do not find the right sites for you depending on where you live etc. They can be a nice and easy way to make a bit of extra pocket money without any investment. But if you are looking for a way to make a living online, paid surveys are not the way, but for people that just want a bit of extra money, it can be a great way.


  9. I have been skeptical about survey sites for some time. I have tried a few along the way and found most of the time surveys are not available where I am and if i did get get one they took too long to complete. PaidViewPoint sounds a little different and I like the low payout threshold of only $15. Maybe finally there is a survey site that is worth looking at again. Cheers!

    • Glad to hear you found my review useful Mark. It can be quite different which sites offer frequent surveys depending on the country you live in. PaidViewpoint can definitely be a good site, but also here, it depends where in the world you live. In Scandinavian, PaidViewpoint does not give you a lot of surveys in my experience, but in the US and many other parts of the world there are more frequent surveys.


  10. Excellent review. It seems to me that with a little effort I can earn some extra money. Too bad the job market is restricted or less for individual countries. I hope that this will change in future and I will definitely try this method of earnings. Do you recommend PaidViewpoint for beginners?

    • Thanks for your comment Deva. Glad you found it useful.

      As PaidViewpoint is easy to navigate on and as there are not too many distractive options, I think it is a great survey site for beginners. Their surveys are usually also pretty short and the Trait Score can almost be like a game, that can keep you motivated:-)

      Good luck, if you decide to give it a try, and let me know if any more questions come up.
