Going to try microworkers again

United States
January 27, 2013 1:21pm CST
Now that Microworkers uses PayPal again I will start back with it again. I will try to put in a couple of hours a day to get my earnings up. I like having PayPal as a payment processor. I didn't like Alertpay at all. It takes a lot longer to get my money from Alertpay. I get my money from PayPal in just two to three days. I found that I had to change email addresses with some of the jobs in order not to get rejected as repeats. Have you ever had to make new email addresses for some repeat jobs? I never felt accustomed to some of the jobs. I don't live it like I love Mylot and other sites. What are your thoughts about Microworkers?

Sorry to hear the jobs are limited. I think there are some jobs that only are open to US residents.

I think I looked at Microworkers a couple of years ago. I think it is too boring to set and watch videos and just get afew cents. Paypal is really fast getting money to my account. Alertpay I think it took about a week and a half. Good luck and hope you make alot of money there.

I think I've only watched one video. There are a lot of tasks and the money accumulates much faster than here. One day when I was new I made payout amount, $9 in just two days. It is boring for me too but I think I can cope to get the extra money in my PayPal account.

I have some funds sitting there, but I have not been there in a long time. I have not been back to it since they started doing PayPal. I have some things I would like to use Payza for, but I have never funded it, and I always get skeptical when things keep changing. . . like Alert Pay became Payza, etc. Let us know how you are doing. I will not put in that kind of time there, but do not mind the occasional job. I like it when I can get some freelance work as it is a better investment of my time.

I agree. Yahoo is the best investment of my time. I don't even have to write if I don't want to because my 1300 plus articles are earning money for me. As long as I publish every 3 months, I'm good. I publish a few a week and tweet them and my tweets go to Facebook. I don't do anymore ghostwriting. I just do what I want to do.

No...however, I dont know much about microworkers. Is it good? And exactly how does it work..now that you tell me, I might visit it. I might have joined it ages ago..when I arrived here on myLot. In fact, there was a very nice site that I'd joined, and I quite enjoyed working for it, for while, but subsequently, I stopped working on it...god knows why...and I fail to recollect its name. :) I hope it is that site. :)

@pointlessquestions that is great that you are able to make that much from your online work. Do you know what is the highest you can go in order to cashout from microworkers? Is there like a limit where you must cashout and you can't go any higher? I always wondered about this but couldn't figure it out.

Anything over $9. I don't think there is a limit to the maximum amount.

It uses Alertpay and PayPal. You can read above to see how it works. One of my friends cashes out when she makes $200. She makes that in about a month or so. It's not something I like doing, but I will do it like another job. I want to make $500 at home online. I make about $200 with my writing, so with mylot and Microworkers I hope to make that soon. I hope to increase my writing money to $300 a month within the next year or two.

I like microworkers as well. I'm glad to hear that they changed back to paypal as well. I didn't know they did this because I haven't cashed out in awhile. I do not like alertpay at all. I don't like the fact that they charge so much to get your own money. Microworkers has been a big help to me.

Hi Domonique! I'm glad that you like the site. It's not my favorite thing to so but I will work it to get extra money.

I have read this issue in some review sites, if it's true then it would be shame knowing that their members are expecting good results from them but they treat them like that. Let's hope that you gain what you earned there and they start fixing and giving more reasonable option regarding that pin number mail system. Cheers.

I understand that, but if a persons paypal acct. is verified should be enough. Id think...

I'm really not familiar with the site. I know that a number of myLotters do tasks on that site, but I've not joined it. It sounds like this could be really good for you now that you can get paid by Microworkers via PayPal again. This should give you an extra bit of money in your budget each month.

Yes I agree. If I can make at least $100 a month I will be happy because I should top out over $200 this month from yahoo voices. It won't solve all my financial issues but it will help.

I am totally agree with you,now microworkers got my interest also after it included Paypal as its payment processor.I am a member of it over one year,but got limited activity there,now i will try to involve in it.They have some limited job opportunity for indians like us,so it makes little difficult to achieve payout soon.

It will be glad to get started back again. I know that lots of Indians have trouble finding jobs.

I too am going back to microworkers now that they added paypal. I am excited as i am just getting back into making money online and have been doing pretty well for this month. I am hoping microworkers will add some more profit to my paypal account. The money I earn online goes to my fun account so the more I add the more fun money I have!

Hey. I would like to know if you can earn some money there and does it take a lot to earn the amount you need to get paid? I don't know if you have to be like doing a lot of work to just make 2 dollars then it can't be worth it if you think about the electricity and the time you use on it. I hope you can give some tips how to best earn money there and fast!

You have to do the work. If you aren't motivated, then you won't earn. Some jobs pay a quarter. Some a dollar. You can only judge for yourself if its worth it. My friend makes about $200 a month give or take. She spends many hours doing it. If it wasn't worth doing no one would bother. You can earn $9 in a day or two if you out the time and effort into it. That's the minimum payout.

I checked them out again because of this post, but I'm wondering why they still want an address and PIN if they will pay with PayPal. I've never heard of this with any other company I've researched.

That's just the way they do things. They take a certain percent off the top as their commission. My friend works it like a regular job. She makes good money with MW. I could never do as well because I can't just sit forever. My biggest money maker is my writing. But I hope to start doing well with MW.

You can read above on things I have done on there. You must complete a task to get credit for it. They usually credit by the next day. They have up to a week to credit. I've always had them credit by the next day.

I have never actually tried that site yet. Have looked into it but lately due to working full time and running my online offline business plus trying to stay active in here all the time, I am not sure I have time to tackle anything else. But personally there are things out there if they do not pay with pay pal, I am not interested.

They have PayPal now. Some folks don't like it cuz a portion of your money is taken. But that is the same with the alert pay.

Microworkers is one of my favorite sites to use. Although I'm happy they have brought Paypal back as a payment option, I think I'm going to stick with Moneybookers. I noticed the fees to withdraw to Paypal is a bit higher than Moneybookers and AlertPay. As much as I love Paypal, I think I'll save those few cents.

Hi Prospectboy! I'm glad to hear you like it. I'm going to go with PayPal because I like it better. I always lose a little bit when I get money from other countries. I used to write for a company in England and another company in Canada. It was always fast. Moneybookers was never fast for me.

Good that I saw this discussion! I used to work a lot on microworkers, but since I could not use my money on moneybookers to deposit in poker rooms anymore, I stopped to work there. Now that I heard that they are paying through paypal again, I'll definitely come back to work there because $15-$20 extra every month is always good.

Yes it's always good to have money from online earnings. I go to MW whenever I think about it. So far I have a 100% success rate.

Seems easy enough, I have never tried this site. I will have to go check it out, do you need a referral? I have a fulltime job, so these sites are just a little extra money here and there to help out. I don't think I would ever have the time to make $500 a month, but maybe someday.

You don't need a referral. I get bored with it but still do it to make a little money.

Hi friend, good to know that you planned to be active with micro workers again. I requested my payment, but it takes a long time, so i cancelled my payout request and used my money to create task with micro workers. I am not interested in creating fake id to attend some repeated tasks. Wish you to get your payment soon via paypal from this site
