Vivatic is one of the worst online survey sites going as they refuse to pay and take monies that have been accrued in panellists accounts.
You have only got to go onto their Facebook page to see that what I am informing you about is true.
They have raised their target to pay out on surveys to £25 and with only a few surveys available, this takes nearly a year to reach this target figure plus their tracking system does not work and surveys taken are not credited to the accounts. Furthermore, once a claim is made for the credits in the account, they will only pay £24.50 as 50p is deducted for PayPal fees regardless of how much funds are in the account, eg even if you have £38 in the account, they will still only pay £24.50 leaving a balance of £13.50 in the account, plus it takes nearly 2 months for these funds to reach your PayPal account.
I have informed them that I do not wish any funds left in my account as once I have been paid, I will not be continuing with Vivatic as they are rubbish individuals and I also sent them a PayPal invoice for all the funds in my account minus the fees they claim are for PayPal. Their response was that they only pay at the rate of £25 at a time minus fees and any funds in the account remain there all the time the account is active. Therefore, if individuals do not continue with Vivatic, they close the account and retain all the monies that individuals have accrued in their accounts; which, as you can appreciate, with all their members is a substantial amount.
Please be aware that VIVATIC is NOT RECOMMENDED!!!
