Paid Viewpoint is waste of time! Yes, the trait score surveys are low, but the emphasis is on the points earned. Personally, I feel the trait score is irrelevant. I have over 5500 points, but I only receive a survey every other two weeks or so. However, don't be fooled! The initial surveys are low, too. They most I have received is $1.83 for a seven minute survey.
I have been a member for almost 1 1/2 - 2 years, and I have yet to earn enough to make a request a payout. When I first started, I was receiving 2-3 surveys a week. Then, for some reason, I stopped receiving surveys. After emailing them, in which they responded back in a timely fashion, I received a survey or two, they stopped again. The only reason I am active now is because I have $14.65 in my account. I only need $0.35 to cash out. After that, I will be deleting my account.
That's my story. I am just utterly annoyed and beyond disappointed with them. My advice, don't waste your time earning cents and spend months attempting to reach a payout threshold. There are sites that will pay you twice as much to participate in surveys.
