Hello mylotters, share your experience about mturk which is a online earning site and run by Amazon group. I came to contact this site, two days before by "Epicpenguine" and found interesting. I feel only one fault that it is not for all countries. I want to join this site but before this i want to your experience about this site.

Mturk is actually one of the sites I have made the most money on and they always paid well and on time. As you said though it is a shame that they don't work with all countries. What I usually do is the article requests and the transcription which both pay very well there. Of course there are other tasks like organizing pictures, data entry and things like that. They even have projects that want you to write a review of movies you have seen so it is a really cool site. I hope this helps and that you are able to use the site. Oh, also another draw back is that they only way to request pay out is through your bank which you have to link to the mturk account or in an amazon.com gift card. I think that also turns away a lot of potential workers because some people don't want their bank information online.

You think right, payment through bank is not a good option. Admin must started paypal and alertpay option.

You are kind of luck, actually, in my opinion. Since Vicereine and I live in the United States, we can cashout via gift card for Amazon or Bank. However, in India, they give you the option to cashout via a check. I think that is very nice, and I wish I could do that with Mturk. Good luck and happy earnings with Mturk.

Hi niftytrader. You already know I've had a good experience with Mturk. However, if you do decide to use Mturk, I want to help you out a bit. To help you understand it more, I think it is best to have you watch some videos instead of reading (I always thought it is easier to see it done rather than reading it). I recommend you go here: http://www.youtube.com/garcia200 He has about three Mturk videos and they are pretty helpful. Just use the search. They helped me out on Mturk a lot. It helped me turn from earning just a couple of cents a day to a couple of dollars if I'm willing to do the work. Good luck.

I have been working on Mturk for the past one year. The most amount of money that i have made online is from Mturk, the do make payments. I work form India and the only problem that face is that their cheques get delayed at times and then it takes another month for us to recieve the cheque.
