Money Making Opportunities at Amazon Mechanical Turk by Completing Hits

Money making opportunities at Amazon Mechanical Turk is simple. All you have to do is completing simple task call Hits. Hits or Human Intelligence Tasks is actually a simple question that needs an answer. The concept of Amazon Mechanical Turk is based on the fact that there are many simple questions or tasks are best performed by human being. Although there are many programs which we can use to perform the tasks, the judgment perform by computer might not be that accurate. This is why some business still hires lots of people to perform simple tasks temporally in short time.  At Amazon Mechanical Turk this activity can be done efficiently with minimum cost and in a short time.

As a Mechanical Turk worker, you get to make money by completing simple tasks. There are about 76 thousand of Hits available as I’m writing this post. The rewards given are range from $0.01 to as high as $7. And you have to complete the Hits within given time. Hits with higher rewards are much difficult to get and complete. You may try to aim for lower rewards but try not to go for $0.01 rewards Hits. Completing 100 Hits with $0.01 rewards to make just a dollar is not worth the time and effort. Be sure you read the task instruction carefully so that you won’t get rejected.

Mechanical Turk worker get paid via Amazon Payments account. Once requester approves the Hits, money will be transferred to your Amazon Payments account. It’s kind of disappointed as PayPal is not included as one of the payment method. Only US and India based workers are able to withdraw money from Amazon Payments account. Payments can be sent directly to US bank account and by bank checks denominated in Indian Rupees. Unfortunately for international workers, you can only disburse to Amazon gift certificate. In other words the money making opportunities are for workers from US and India only.

    I participate at the program for a couple of months. Tasks are simple, but payments are very low, however it opens many opportunities and some of the jobs can be outsourced for more money.

    Payments on turk are miserable, sure easy 2-3 minute tasks, but for .20c, come on after 10 jobs done $2. I don’t think that this is a real money making opportunity.

    Very low payment, but on the other side it is great to get small jobs done for almost nothing.
