What is Microworkers?
Microworkers is an innovative, International online platform that connects Employers and Workers from around the world. Our unique approach guarantees Employers that a task paid is a task successfully done, while Workers that successfully complete a job get paid.
The tasks assigned to Workers and paid for by Employers are simple and quick, mostly completed in a few minutes, thus they are called “microjobs”. These tasks include simple Sign ups, social bookmarking tasks, forum participation, website visits, rating contents, adding comments, suggesting leads, creating backlinks, writing reviews or articles, downloading applications, testing websites and so much more.
Joining Microworkers is free, and as an International site, anyone from any country can be a member.
Who are the Employers?
Anyone can be an Employer. If you own an online business, a blog, a video channel or simply need referrals for your favorite programs, Microworkers is definitely the place to come and have your small tasks assigned to tens of thousands of active Workers who are always ready to complete your job.
Whether you need traffic for your website, comments or a fresh post for your blog, bookmarks or Likes for a video you want to be popular, or testing and review for your new application, hiring Workers from our program ensures you affordable, quick and top quality results.
Who are the Workers?
Anyone can also be a Worker. You can be a stay-at-home mom, a student who needs extra spending money, or if you simply love helping others while making some extra cash alongside, this is the place for you. Joining Microworkers as a Worker does not mean you are employed by the site. Instead, you will be working as a freelancer. With that, you can work as much or as little as you want. At the same time, your potential for earning is also limitless since you can accept all the jobs you believe you are capable of completing, and get paid for them.
Can I be a Worker and Employer at the same time?
Absolutely, signing up to Microworkers allows you take “microjobs”. At the same time, when you have projects (campaigns) you wish to run, you can use the same account to do so. You simply have to click on the Start a Campaign option, and post your job. What’s more, you can use your earnings as a Worker to fund your campaign as an Employer.
I am a Worker…
Can I have more than one account?
No. There is no need to maintain more than one account and it is against Microworkers’ Guidelines. If you’ve lost your login information, you can request to have it sent to your Email address. If you are caught having more than one account, your account(s) will be terminated, your IP address(es) will be banned, your payments will be forfeited and you can no longer participate in Microworkers’ program in the future.
How do I earn money?
If you wish to look for “microjobs”, click on the Tasks link and browse through the hundreds of listed tasks. Each task will display a set of instructions, the time to complete it and the amount you will earn for finishing the job. If you believe you can finish the task, click on Accept to accept this job, and the page will display a form where you can enter the proof required by the Employer. Otherwise, click on Cancel if you do not wish to perform the job.
What is a Success Rate and why do I need to maintain it?
The Microworkers Success Rate ensures Employers that they get quality results from the campaigns they are running. This feature prevents workers from posting spam or fake proofs, and low-quality output of the tasks they perform.
Poorly performed tasks will give you a negative rating and will pull your Success Rate down. To maintain a high Success Rate, make sure to only accept tasks you are capable of completing.
I have been misrated by my Employer. What should I do?
If you believe you have been misrated for a job that is properly completed, let us know and we will look into the issue. Just open the task details page and click on the “Create a Complain” link. After reviewing your claims, we will credit your account with the amount due to you. Otherwise, if the Employer gave you a negative rating for an appropriate reason, you will not be credited. Microworkers will maintain a fair approach in dealing with work disputes and will be looking after to what is best for both Employers and Workers.
Where can I view the jobs I have completed?
Once the Worker submits a proof, the job will appear in the list of Finished Tasks. Tasks not yet rated by Campaign owners (Employers) are listed under “Submitted Tasks”. Tasks that have been rated can be viewed under the “Rated Tasks” tab. A comment is available for each task describing if it was rated with “satisfied” or “not satisfied”.
Where can I view my earnings and account activity?
If you want to view your account transactions, click on the Account tab from the top menu. The page will display your personal information and account details. To view your earnings, click on the “All Transactions” link under the Transactions section (lower left). To view your deposits, click on the “Transactions (Deposits)” link. To view your withdrawal history, click on the Withdraw link from the top menu. All withdrawals with the corresponding Date, Withdrawal method, Status and Amount will be listed in the page.
Your account’s current balance is displayed on the top section of your page.
How and when do I get paid?
Once the Employer reviews your submitted task and approves it, the amount assigned for that particular job is automatically added to your account balance. If an Employer fails to rate tasks, his campaign will automatically close and the submitted tasks will be rated “Satisfied” by the system after the assigned Time-to-rate period (number of days set by the Employer to allow him to rate tasks). Likewise, the assigned amounts for the closed tasks will be credited to the Workers’ accounts.
When your earnings reach $9, you will be allowed to place a withdrawal request. To do so, click on the Withdraw tab from the top menu, and then click on the ‘Place a New Withdrawal Request’ link. You can choose a withdrawal method between Paypal, or Skrill (Moneybookers), as well as the amount you only wish to withdraw. For US citizens a withdrawal via Dwolla is also possible.
More payment options will be available in the future. Announcements will be made once they are implemented. All payments are made in USD.
Payments to Workers are sent twice a week, every Wednesday and Sunday.
What is a Microworkers PIN?
Withdrawals require a PIN in order to be activated. Your PIN is mailed to your home/mailing address after placing first withdrawal request. This is an automated process. The reason why PIN is mailed to one’s mailing address is to ensure that all Workers are verified, thus, preventing multiple accounts. Once the PIN is mailed, such status will be displayed in your account and a link will appear on your page where you may enter your PIN once it is received.
After such is completed, your withdrawals will be activated.
***Note that the PIN process is only performed for the first withdrawal request and will no longer be repeated once your withdrawals are activated.
PIN delivery can take between 1-4 weeks, depending on your mailing service and location.
Please ensure you have entered your correct mailing address. An option to request a new PIN is displayed in your page if such is not received.
For succeeding withdrawals, a withdrawal PIN to one’s email is sent in order to complete the withdraw request.
Can I use my earnings to run my own campaign?
Certainly, simply click on Campaigns from the top menu then select between Basic or Hiregroup campaigns. Then click on the Create a new Campaign option to post your job.
