Is PaidViewPoint a legit survey site?
PaidViewPoint is operated by AYTM (Ask Your Target Market), which is a long-established and legit provider of data to the market research industry. AYTM earns money by renting out their survey-takers (i.e. you) to researchers who need access to a large pool of respondents to fulfil market research surveys. This means you’ll be exposed to surveys fielded by third party professional market research buyers. While your survey data will be shared with other companies, your personal identifiers like email address, phone number and name will remain confidential (unless otherwise stated).
How to get accepted as a verified survey taker
To access the program, you need to register and verify your mobile number. PaidViewPoint will ask for your email address where they will send you a daily selection of survey opportunities enabling you to accumulate rewards. You will also need to provide your demographic information like birthdate, zip code and gender. The more information you provide to PaidViewPoint the easier it will be for them to match you with surveys. After successfully logging in you would also need to provide a PayPal address where they can send your payment.

Survey experience on Paid Viewpoint
PadViewPoint does not have a mobile app but you can always log in and take surveys through your browser using your android phone or IOS phone. Padviewpoint will also allow you to sign up as an affiliate and earn more money and rewards. PaidViewPoint offers two types of surveys; traits survey and market research survey. A traits survey is getting an idea of your traits, demographic, and interests. The purpose of this is to be able to match you with potentially better-paid surveys without risking screening out.
How much can I earn with PaidViewPoint?
You can earn between $0.03 to $0.10 by answering trait surveys which contribute to your overall trait score. If you reach the 9000-trait score or more you will become a PV member. PV member earns more money than regular members. A market research survey is a type of survey that is commissioned by the clients of PaidViewPoint. For these types of surveys, you can earn between $0.25 to $1.50 depending on the length and complexity of the online questionnaire.
How difficult is it to cash out?
The threshold for cashing out your rewards is $15. This might not sound like a lot, but considering that you’ll earn less than $0.50 per task you’ll need to be prepared to spend quite a lot of time on the PaidViewPoint to be able to eventually withdraw your hard-earned cash. The second time you cash out the redemption level is $10 and all the following withdrawal limits are $5 so it definitely pays off to be a loyal PaidViewPoint member over time.
What can prevent me from getting paid?
First of all, you need to qualify for the surveys. You’ll experience being screened out quite often, which means you’ll not be able to finalize the survey and get paid. You should also pay close attention to your answers when taking surveys. By implementing so-called attention-checks, PaidViewPoint can reject your answers if they detect that you are just submitting random answers without any meaning, or gibberish feedback in the open-ended questions. Also, make sure that your PayPal account information is matching with your PaidViewPoint profile to avoid any hiccups during the payment process.
