PaidViewpoint by Umongous Inc., David Handel, and Lev Mazin, and found at paidviewpoint.com, is a market research company that offers paid surveys and panel studies by invitation only to members.
PaidView point is a part of the company that runs Instant Cash Sweepstakes which has had positive online comments.
Paid Viewpoint does have some good qualities to offer users, including invitation-only surveys, which means they invite you to take their studies.
What PaidViewpoint claims is that, by doing invitation only, they already consider you qualified to complete the surveys they invite you to.
That means you will be guaranteed payment when you complete the surveys PaidViewpoint invite you to and they pay in cash. The minimum payment cap is $15 dollars.
They claim you will not be disqualified halfway through a survey they invited you to take, unlike most other get paid to take survey websites that screen you out somewhere along the process.
PaidViewpoint prides themselves on privacy as well because they state they will not require you to provide your name or physical address on the surveys you would take.
All these points are important factors when being asked to take part in their online surveys and polls, especially the fact that PaidViewpoint does not pay in rewards points, gift card or other gimmicks like that, just cash through PayPal.
One thing to know about PaidViewpoint’s confidentiality policy requires that once you have reached the payout and wish to collect your earnings you have to call their company number for verification.
This is to make certain it is you and that you only have one account that no one you did not authorize can hack in to steal your earnings. They do claim that they won’t sell or share your number, though.
The least important claim made is that they make the survey answering experience interesting, not boring, but that only matters to those who actually enjoy doing surveys as a hobby.
The main drawback to PaidViewpoint though is that it will take you a long time to reach that $15 dollar payout minimum before you can cash it out.
The reason for that is that most of the surveys will only make you anywhere from .05 cents to a dollar or so. You can see that it would take some time to get up to $15 at this rate.
At all times at the top of the PaidViewpoint site, you can see how much you have earned summed up on their toolbar. On the right side, you can see what you will earn before you take the survey you were invited to.
They also provides a time bar to let you know how much time you have left until the survey is done, which is also a feature almost no other paid survey site offers.
Paid Viewpoint is not only free to join but they also give you a bonus one dollar for signing up with them. You can either register with your email or social media profile such as Facebook, Google plus, etc.
In addition, PaidViewpoint has a feature they call TraitScore which helps you make more money if you hit 9000 points, and that increases each time you complete a ‘trait’ survey or a paid survey.
They also have an affiliate plan in which you receive up to $25 from each person you refer and 20% from every survey your referrals complete each time they cash out.
If you can get more than a hundred friends to sign up you can become what Paid Viewpoint calls a community builder. This makes you 20% instantly if you don’t want to wait for them to cash out.
You are certainly not going to get rich from doing ten cent surveys on Paid Viewpoint’s site, and it will definitely take quite a long time to even cash out just doing surveys and not bringing them referrals.
Because PaidViewpoint will not kick you out during any surveys they invite you to, I’d say this is one of the less unsavory market research companies around.
However, you will not make anything even resembling a fraction of a living unless you have multiple thousands of people willing to join under you.
I can recommend Paid Viewpoint as a fun hobby for those who enjoy taking surveys and do not value their time or ever expect to reach that $15 payout cap in doing so.
I have taken into consideration many online complaints from people who got to five cents away from their goal and when they complained to PaidViewpoint got rude replies and some even got their accounts deleted.
I won’t call it a scam, however, I cannot recommend PaidViewpoint as a way of making a living.
Thanks for reading…
