Default Vivatic - Any Good?

I stumbled across them, joined and after 40mins work have apparently earnt £3.55 - not bad for doing next to nothing.

They say they only pay out from £10 upwards and into paypal which is fine - but do they really pay?

Thanks!
Cabot (0%) left to pay £2455 let the overpayments commence!

Signed up this evening, earned £6.85 so far. Hopefully they do pay out, however they only pay out once a week according to their FAQs:

"We transfer payments every Thursday assuming you have met the minimum payment amount (£10) and you have requested payment before Monday 12:00pm of the week before. Payment will be made in blocks of £10 e.g. £10, £20, £30 etc."

Going to stick with them and see what happens. On a side note I notice they are using Populus Live Surveys and I managed to qualify to complete 3 on their surveys, I was surprised given I signed up directly to the Populus site a while a go and have only ever received 2 surveys from them so far.

Exactly what I thought lol ... Worth it though if it adds an extra tenner on top of the weekly income I guess

Just signed up too. That was definitely longer than 15 mins. Hmmm. Jury's out I guess. Let's see who makes it to a tenner first then you can report back

I've earned £3.85 so far. But I couldn't get onto one of the survey pages?! it was the first one listed and I just got a blank page.
Anyone else had this?

I can't find anything sinister about them. But neither can i find anything to reassure me either. the fact that the T&C's have spelling mistakes in them worries me slightly!!

Good luck People!

I've had a closer look at Vivatic and its parent company, and their addresses, linked in profiles (Or lack of), and archives of the websites. I think it's fishy. The sites look spammy, or at the very least designed to drive traffic to certain sources for as yet unknown reasons. I can't believe that they really pay up to £1 per survey, £10 for articles etc - Pinecone pays a pretty penny for surveys, but they are not easy to get into (invite code only), so how the heck is this site managing to let all and sundry in? Think I'm leaving it till someone comes back on and says they've actually been paid

YES, they are ok, they do what they say, I`ve got my earned £10 from them and bought the shoes on sale so they are fine and I decided to do the surveys every day (u can have up to 6 and usually 4 is available) and pay off my credit card this way. I owe £1000, so yeah, its gonna take some time but if I spend 40 minutes in front of my pc 6 days a week (some surveys u r not able to do coz of the age or whatever) then Ive got more less £80 - £90 a month! every little helps, innit?

Thanks for your reassurance Kredkaonline.. Forgive me but i'm always a little weary when a newie tells us how good a money making site is.
Can i ask, how did you know someone here was asking if the site is legitimate.
Now that i'm what you could describe as an older person i've stopped eating health foods.
I need all the preservatives i can get.
