I've just singed up on MinuteWorkers because I heard they pay for doing simple jobs that take few minutes. I applied to some jobs there and now I'm waiting to see if I will earn a few cents. My question is ... how can I be sure that if I complete all the steps of a job there that the employee will pay me ? I mean can't he just create a job and then let people do what he asks and then not pay them and say something like none have completed the job correctly ? Anyone using these kind of website's to earn extra money ?

Hi. I signed up on the 27th of last month and i've been back every day to find a job. Sadly so far my balance is a pathetic 9 cents from one job I use Minijobz, rapidworker, microworker, and Mturk to find tasks, as well as the occasional Mylot one. all of them seem to have more varied tasks than i've found here. I realised pretty quickly that a huge percentage were private referals, neobux JMgold or summit like that. I'd suggest trying out some of the slightly bigger sites. they do pay.

sorry for the delay. try out the four other sites i mention. they are the only ones i've got anywhere with. Alternativly if you are ok with your writing skills then try a review site. you get more money that way. Sites like review stream pay $0.50 for a review, other you get royalties, or both!

I got an email from them. At first I was skeptical but after searching some proofs that they do pay I registered immediately. I really like this site but Microworkers is much more better. It has more tasks to do and US members like me are paid very well.

I saw that tasks for US members are very profitable. I saw a tasks posted once for US /CA members that was paying $ 1 which you don't see that very often.

i have been a member of minuteworkers for afew months now, i found out that when you sign up as an employer first they give you $1.00 sign up bonus for every employer. then if the employer wants to have more workers on a project then they are required to set up their paypal account to the site. if the employer doesnt set up their paypal account to minuteworkers or if the employer doesnt have any money in thier paypal account then the employer would not be able to have workers on the projects

I see, thank you for your response galvanrit. Can I ask you how much you earned during your time on MinuteWorker ?

Sounds like another freelancing kinda thing. What happens in most Freelancing sites are that the employers first pays the freelancing website their money and the website pays the workers after the job is done. But I'm not exactly sure how things work in the website you're working on. Good luck.
