With this Vivatic Review I hope to give you all the information you need to decide if this site is worth joining or if you have to steer clear. Are they legit or a complete scam?
Vivatic is an online paid survey site that pays you in cash for taking surveys and doing other tasks. Survey sites that pay in cash are a great way to earn a little extra money for very little work.
Surveys can be a fun way to earn a little extra money and can be a nice supplement to your other income.
Vivatic was first started in October 2010, and has paid out around 5 million dollars to member’s since then.
You will have fun while you learn about new products to come on the market from some top companies all over the world. You will play an active role in the development of these new products and services.
Below is my Vivatic review, which is summarized from various sources: information obtained from the Vivatic website, feedback obtained from Vivatic users of the site, my own personal experiences, and my own thorough research.

London NW5 3EH, United Kingdom

Operated by: Marketing VF Limited
Global participation. However mostly concentrated on UK and US.
Must be 16 years of age and older.
Must have a valid PayPal account.
Payment means: Money.
Amount per survey: For me it averages at around £3. But could be from a few cents to around £15.
Payment minimum: £20.00 or the equivalent of your own currency.
How you get paid: PayPal
When do you get paid: Last working day of the next month of your request for payment.
Sign up bonus: Yes. The amount is reflected in your own currency.
Other information: Important; if you have not done any of the earning opportunities for 60 days, Vivatic may clear your available balance and you will lose everything you have earned up to then. Frankly I think this is a bit ridiculous.
How you get notified: Receive notification per e-mail of available surveys. Also when logging into your account under the ‘Take a Survey’ page.
Frequency of surveys: How frequently you get surveys differs from person to person, and depends on your profile and demographics. In general though, it can usually be between 1 and 8 per month.
Survey Lengths: Averages between 5 and 30 minutes.
Type of Surveys available: Online surveys.
How often do you qualify: People do not qualify for various reasons, so this is not easy to answer. Qualification depends on demographics, your profile, and available spots in a survey. For example: when you are invited to take a survey at say 10H00 and you wait 5 hours to start the survey, you could be too late.
Personally though, I usually qualify for 2 out of every 3 invitations.
Other information: Make sure you complete the profile questions you receive more surveys.
This survey site or rather the survey companies that use them, are very strict about surveys being answered thoroughly. So you have to ensure that you never lie in the surveys and also never rush your answers, because they like asking the same questions more than once to see if your answers are the same, and will kick you out if you rush.
A nice aspect about Vivatic is, they actually tell you the days to expect survey invitations; Wednesday, Fridays, and Saturdays.
All articles and tasks you do are rated out of 5, the higher your rating the more work you will receive. But if your overall rating falls below 3.5 you will likely have to wait a long time for more work. You therefore have to submit work of a high quality.
Registration with Vivatic is of course free as it should be. Upon registration, you have to confirm your email address, as usual.
After confirming my email address, I already had two surveys waiting for me.
At this point you are also given the opportunity to complete your profile. It is always a good idea to complete your profile as soon as you can, because it can increase your surveys. You actually also get paid for completing your profile, linking to Facebook, and confirming your PayPal account; nice.
After I completed my profile, there were a lot more surveys available to do. The only problem is, most of them were from Toluna, and because I am also a member of Toluna I could not do some of these surveys.
This is the main problem I found with Vivatic, they use surveys from many of the survey sites that I already use, and you can’t do the same survey through different sites. Luckily they do have a lot of surveys that the other survey sites don’t have.
Another problem I found was there customer service. It is very difficult to get in touch with them. There is no visible phone number, and their contact form is hidden in the FAQ.
The fact that they clear your balance if you are not active for 60 days is a huge problem for me, and something you have to be aware of.
Their website is setup conveniently though, with each type of work under its own tab on the front page. Your current balance are in the top right for easy reference.
I did find that, apart from surveys, there were very few things to day. I was interested to do some writing task, but found that the writing tab do not even open. Apparently this tab only opens when there are writing tasks available, and they say they currently have enough writers.
Please leave your comments below if you are having problems with this site or if you have anything to add.
I haven’t been with Vivatic for long, but so far so good. There are not so much work or surveys available for me, but this is different from country to country, so this cannot form part of my judgment.
Looking for another site with high survey invitations? Check out my Toluna Review for detail of just such a site.
I always advice people to join many survey sites, and that is exactly the reason why I would advise you to join this site as well.
I also advise people to be cautious when joining a new survey site, and this one is no different. Don’t give out information you don’t feel comfortable in sharing, such as banking information, your children’s names, your physical address, etc. I will update this review, if need be, after I have been with them for a few months, but I currently have no problem in recommending them.
There are some things that bother me about Vivatic, but overall I thought I would give them a try, and so can you.
So, do you think Vivatic is legit and did this Vivatic Review help in your decision? I will also appreciated it if you can rate this survey site above, after you join them, to assist other users.
Final verdict: Join, but with caution.
