Amazon Mechanical Turk, aka MTurk

Program Name: Amazon Mechanical Turk

Site URL:
https://www.mturk.com

Referral program? No

Date joined: 11/25/2010

Amount earned: $3,459.05

Analysis: Definitely recommended! This one has obviously paid the most, and is one program that will pay you if you’re just looking for straight money without referrals.

Here are some tips and advice I can pass on, to hopefully make it easier for you to earn without any unnecessary rejections or problems.

Sign up for an account at a Turker forum to get a good idea of who to work for, and who to avoid. Some helpful forums devoted to MTurk are MTurk Forum, CloudMeBaby, TurkerNation, MTurk Grind and mTurkWiki.

Install the TurkOpticon browser extension  and check Requester reviews before doing any of their work. Don’t work for someone who pays too low, has arbitrary rejections, or is an out and out scam requester. Once you get comfortable with the site, be sure to start leaving reviews of your own so you can help new Turkers too.

Once you’ve got an idea of which Requesters you like the most, sign up for an account at TurkAlert at http://www.turkalert.com/ to get emails as soon as your favorites post HITS.

I tend to primarily do transcription, with an occasional research survey here and there. I only log into MTurk for less than hour per day, so my earnings are very low. There are many people making much more money than I do there, because they devote the time to it.

I do transcription offline for a local college, so that’s what keeps me the busiest during the day. However, I like to log in once daily and get a few HITs in just to keep my account active. During the holiday breaks when school is out and there’s no work to do offline, having MTurk to fall back on is a real lifesaver.

US members can get paid by direct deposit to a checking account or prepaid debit card, or by Amazon Gift Card codes. The minimum payment is $10.00 by direct deposit, or $1.00 to a gift card.

Personally, I choose the gift card option. We use it to buy pet supplies and household goods in bulk that offer free super saver shipping, so that we reduce our monthly grocery bill.

International? This I’m not so sure of any longer. They used to routinely accept members from all countries, but I started hearing in late 2012 that they were only approving new US accounts. If you’re outside of the US, definitely try to apply, but be aware that they may not approve your application. I have heard rumors of certain countries not being accepted, and recently was contacted by someone from Australia who was declined.

Prolific Academic – Fourth payment received

Prolific Payment Proof:

Review:

I joined Prolific as an additional way to do research studies outside of MTurk. The studies are all very interesting, and the dashboard will show you exactly how long each survey is intended to run for, so you can get a good idea of what your time per minute earnings will be. The sign up is fast and easy, and it only took me five surveys to reach the £5 cashout threshold.

As you can see from the payment screenshot, as a US participant, I needed to have PayPal convert my GBP into US funds, and there was a tiny  PayPal fee.

I highly recommend this site!

I tried the PayPal payout but it didn’t seem to go through. So instead I requested $11.10 in Amazon credits. The email with the Amazon credit arrived immediately. The site is in a bit of restructuring, so I’ll try the PayPal redemption again in a month or so.
