Viewfruit is a paid survey site that looks like a great way to earn some extra money online at first.
But is Viewfruit a scam, or is it really one of the legit survey sites?
I have tested many survey sites, and have also tested Viewfruit thoroughly. Let me reveal right away that it is a legit site – legit does however not necessarily mean it has the right offers for you.
In this Viewfruit review, I will give you all the details about what it offers, who it is for, and what you can expect to earn, so you can easily see if it is a site worth joining for YOU or not.
What is Viewfruit and what does the site offer?
Viewfruit is a member of the Market Research Association, and it is a site that has been around for some years now. It is owned by Paneland, and it definitely a legit company – I know as I have been paid by it many times myself.
So the legitimacy of Viewfruit is not something you have to worry about.
But let’s then look into what the platform offers, so you can see, if it is for you or not.
Option 1 – Viewfruit surveys:
Viewfruit is, first of all, a survey site, and this is the main way to earn money on this platform.
It has a good amount of surveys available, and they pay averagely for your time spent compared to other sites.
Usually you will receive an email with an invitation, when a new survey is available. It can however still be a good idea to check the platform itself regularly to check for new opportunities, as you will not always get an email notification.
And make sure to check your junk folder for survey invitations after you sign up. In my experience, the invites often go here and if you are not aware of this, you can potentially miss out on a lot of earnings.
When you are logged in, you will also easily be able to see which surveys are available at the moment.
As you can see on the image above, you can see in the corner of the surveys whether you can take it PC or Phone or both. Below each survey offer, you can also see the amount of points you will earn for taking the survey. This makes it easy to quickly see which surveys you want to participate in.
You can always yourself decide which surveys you want to participate in, and which ones you want to skip.
Be aware that to be offered the most relevant surveys, it can be a good idea to fill out your profile, after you join. This will give Viewfruit some more info about who you are, and you will therefore be offered more relevant surveys.
No matter what, you will however not qualify for all surveys. That is just how it is on more or less all survey sites. On Viewfruit you should however have good chances of qualifying, so if you do not qualify the first time, do not give up.
On Viewfruit you will furthermore get a reward, even if you do not qualify, which is quite unusual but great. I will explain more about this later.
Option 2 – Create and vote in polls:
On Viewfruit you can participate in what is called V-Vote. It is small polls created by other members. They only take a few seconds to answer.
It can, for example, be a short question like Coke or Pepsi, how did you meet your soul mate, do you play video games or not, etc.
They are always very short and quick to answer. Once you have answered, you can see the statistics of how other people have answered.
You can also create your own small V-Vote polls and other members will then participate in these. This is not something you earn by doing, by more of a social thing.
It can be a great way to get some quick answers for a question you are wondering, and it can be a fun way to interact with other members. But just be aware that it is not a way to earn.
Option 3 – Lucky draws:
Viewfruit has a nice extra way that will give you the chance to win some great extra prizes. It is called the lucky draw.
You can win some great prizes like for example an iPhone, Kindle, or extra cash. The exact rewards here changes from time to time and will depend on your country.
You do not have to do anything extra to get entries into this draw. You get entries by being active on Viewfruit.
Every time you complete a survey, you will for example get 3 entries into the draw. If you do not qualify, or if the survey is full when you try, you get 1 entry. So this is a nice consolation prize to get if you end up not qualifying for a survey and not often you find a survey site that will give you a reward even when you do not qualify.
As soon as you have received an entry, you can right away press the “Go”, and see if you have won. You can also choose to save the entries for later.
Option 4 – Invite friends to join:
You can invite your friends to join Viewfruit and this way build your own survey team.
When one of the people you invited complete a Viewfruit survey, you will get 10% extra paid into your account. The person taking the survey will still get paid the same amount as usual, but Viewfruit pays these extra 10% to you, because you invited the person to join your team.
When one of the people you invite confirm their account, you will furthermore get one entry into the lucky draw. So if you know some people that are interested in joining Viewfruit, it can be a nice way to make a little extra.
Option 5 – Chat with members:
The V-Vote I explained above is an example that Viewfruit is also a bit of a social place. The chat function is another example of this and is called V-Chat.
You can write messages that all can see and answer, you can answer other members’ questions in the chat, you can send private messages, and add people as friends.
Of course, it is not allowed to post spam or promotions in the Viewfruit chat.
This function is not something you will get paid to participate in, but it can make it a bit more fun to be a member, if you like being social.
Below, I have made a small video tour of Viewfruit, so you can get an inside look of the platform, and see for yourself what it looks like and how to use it.
How do you get paid?
One thing it is important to know before joining an online survey site is of course what it offers. But it is also very important to know, how you will get paid for participating.
When you complete surveys on Viewfruit, you will earn points, and as previously mentioned, you will also earn entries into the lucky draw at the same time.
The points you earn can then be exchanged into cash through PayPal. Personally, I love survey sites that offer PayPal as a payout option, as it is great to be able to get the rewards in cash in a fast and easy way.
An advantage of Viewfruit is that it has a low payout threshold, so you can get your money out already when you have earned $5, which is really great.
500 Viewfruit points equals $1, so you need to earn 2500 points to get a payout. Payout requests will be processed every Friday, and you will then receive the money into your PayPal account the following week.
So overall the payout method and conditions are great on Viewfruit, in my opinion.
How much money can you make on Viewfruit?
Overall, Viewfruit has some decent opportunities to earn money by taking surveys. So it is a good site to join, to earn a bit of extra cash.
Depending on the country you live in, there are however sites that offer more opportunities, as some sites offers several ways to earn. You can check out my list of the top paying survey sites in your country, to get an overview of this.
However, Viewfruit is definitely one of the sites that are worth considering in the countries it is available in (see the list of this below).
Just be aware that as on any other survey site, you will not be able to make a full-time income on Viewfruit. You can make some nice extra cash and have your opinion heard on important topics, but it will not make you rich. So if you are looking to become rich online, paid surveys are not the way to go.
Can you use Viewfruit on mobile?
Having access to a survey panel on mobile is a great way to be able to take surveys and earn a little extra in breaks throughout the day.
Viewfruit has its own app that makes this very easy.
You can do all the same things in the app, as you can on the website itself. You will even get a bonus of 100 points for installing the app.
There are some surveys that can only be taken on mobile and some that are only available on PC, so it is still good to regularly check both options. But many of the surveys are available in both the Viewfruit app and on the website.
The app is available for both Android and iPhone.
Who can join?
Viewfruit is available in around 32 countries from Asia, Australia, Europe, America, and Africa. For each country it is available in, it has it own platform and often in the local language.
At the moment Viewfruit is actively recruiting members from, for example, the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Philippines, Malaysia, India, and Singapore.
So if you live in one of these countries, it is definitely a site worth considering. You can see later in this review, how you can join.
Can you get support?
It is always important to know, if a survey site offers support or not, as it tells about how serious it is.
I have myself been in contact with Viewfruit a few times, and they have been pretty quick in responding and have come back with useful replies.
How fast the support is might differ from country to country, and if you have any experiences with Viewfruit’s support from your country, it would be great, if you can share it in a comment below.
But overall, you can in my experience expect a fairly quick answer, if you need to get in contact with support.
No doubt Viewfruit is a legit survey site. But that does not necessarily mean it is the right option for you.
So let’s finish this review by summing up the pros and cons, so you can get a quick overview of what Viewfruit offers, and see if it is a survey site for you or not.
- Free to join
- Decent amount of surveys
- Offers PayPal payments
- Low payout threshold
- Easy to use
- Not available in all countries
- Can be distracting with the social elements
Overall, Viewfruit is easy to use and offers good opportunities to earn for a survey site. It can be a little distracting with some of the social elements, if you are easily distracted, but it can also be fun.
It offers a great payout method, and you can get paid already when you have earned $5. In addition to this, I really like that you will get a chance to win points even if you do not qualify for a survey.
So in general definitely a site worth considering.
