I'd be the first person to put my hand up to being disappointed by Vivatic at times - customer service is just about non-existent, but they are addressing that now; and there is hardly a week that goes by that they don't have a glitch with tracking etc. But does this make them the baddies that some on another review are making out? No.
Vivatic are still a good site, and one where you can clock up some money in a reasonably short time. Ok, we can't all be eligible for every survey, but then that is the nature of survey taking anyway. Those who are in it for "making money" are on to a loser straight away, as taking surveys is not a job, it's just a way to earn a reward - not a wage - for giving up a little of your time.
There are no truly fantastic survey sites - all of them have problems, and all are likely to screen you out much of the time. So what do you do? Behave honestly and with integrity; keep within the boundaries of your membership; read terms and conditions carefully before signing up to avoid any upset further down the line; and accept that you are not always "right" when a dispute over something arises. Above all, just enjoy it.
Vivatic offer more than just surveys as a way of making money, and I've been lucky enough to cash out over £100 and up to £200 per month (£200 just the once!) across several months for writing articles and taking surveys.
I'd tell anyone considering signing up to not be put off by the negative hysteria you are witnessing on Facebook etc - sign up and enjoy it. You have nothing to fear if you are honest, and behave appropriately.
