Which one is the better choice and why ? Which one pays better? Have you had experience with either of these?

THANKS in advance for any help!!!!

I have a small amount of experience with Mturk and can tell you it is very tedious and does not pay well. I have been told it gets better if you can stick with it, but I only go on there now and then so I'm not really getting anywhere fast.  I would not recommend it as a way to make a lot of money.  If you are really interested, give it a try but be prepared to put in a lot of time before you find out for yourself how much better it is going to get.

If you don't do the transcription tasks on Mturk then you really don't make a lot of money. Clickworker is not that good either.

I prefer mturk, because it's much easier to withdraw your earnings than with Clickworker. With Clickworker, you can probably make more if you're just starting out, but you would have to wait 3 weeks to be paid. If you can wait 3 weeks before getting paid via Paypal, than Clickworker would probably be better, but mturk might also be better because getting more hits done means more experience according to requesters, which then leads to better paying hits you can do.

I was not able to access the jobs in mturk maybe because of my location but I remember tat I did an account on that site years ago and there was no issue back then.  I was no active before because the pay is so low for those mini jobs that I do not think will be worth it of the time and effort. Not sure if this is different to those in the US or it had changed over time. Clickworker is not accepting members from our country so, I do not have any experience with it.

I worked for clickworker very briefly but the tasks are limited. On mTurk there are many different things you can do. Some are actually not that boring and fun.

mTurk pays you either with Amazon gift credit or a deposit directly to your bank account. You can request a payout anytime you wish. While you won't make huge money on either site (unless you are very good at transcription and writing in which case you can make very good money on mTurk with crowdsource and transcription tasks) then you can expect to make $150-200/month on mTurk.  But this amount varies widely based on time spent and your rating and HITs available to you.

I don't have any experience with clickworker but I have done work for MTurk before. I earned a little from them and then the work that I was doing wasn't available anymore. They pay into your when the requester has approved your work. When you cash out they will put the money in your Amazon account quickly. I haven't been on the site lately but I read recently that they have more work available so it may be worth trying out now.

What exactly are you doing on these sites? Micro-tasks, clicking on things, I see this on here all the time but I don't what people do on these.

I prefer mturk because I buy a lot on amazon, especially books.  mturk, even in small amounts, essentially gives me a discount on something I would have bought anyway so it's kinda like a mini way to save.  When I save with mturk funds, I put the actual money in a jar to use on fun things because it's completely outside of my budget.

From what I hear, both sites take a bit to ramp up. Mturk used to need at least 1000 HITs before you got better offers but it has since been raised to around 5000? This is all hearsay as I wasn't accepted into their program, likely to due the fact that I haven't filed taxes before and their system couldn't verify me. Honestly, even if I wasn't accepted into it, I believe Mturk to be the better option of the two, if you're okay with doing really low paying jobs until you have enough to access the more rarer HITs.

I hear mTurk is way better. You apparently make more quicker, but the only downside is that it does take some time to build up, and microworker takes less time as far as I can tell

MTurk has many more HITs available than many like clickworkers/Microworkers at any given time.One major con with Mturk is that you must pre-qualify with success rate, tasks completed, or more specific per-requester qualification tests.

If you're in the United States, mturk all the way. There's always work available. If you're not, you'll have to settle for clickworker.

I'm not familiar with Clickworker, but I can tell you about Mturk. There are always a boatload of tasks available all of the time. The issue is what you are qualified to do.

Their HITS (jobs/tasks) are available to search in two ways:

*You can click the 'All Hits available' tab, it is will list everything.

It will state on each task/job whether you are qualified to accept it. If you are not qualified, they will have a link for you to click and get qualified. Sometimes that means taking a test (for things like writing), and sometimes you can just request to be qualified for a certain job.

Also, just the number of tasks you have completed, your age, gender, or your location will qualify you for some tasks. The more you complete, the more tasks will open up. EX: some tasks you would qualify for only if you have complete 100 or more tasks for mTurk. So the higher tasks you have completed and have been approved for will automatically give you more qualifications.

The other way to search Hits:

*You click on the 'Hits available to me' tab. It will list all tasks that you are already qualified for and also all tasks that do not need qualification to accept. The tasks that don't require qualification to do are typically the lowest paying tasks.

These would include entering info from receipts, very short transcription (30 sec or less), transcribing info from medical forms/prescription notes, surveys, etc. These are low paying, like the receipt work pays are 6-10 cents per tasks. A plus is that you always have the option to return the hit (task) without getting dinged for it.

The transcription and writing jobs pay the most, you can make decent money with some of those.

I have never seen the lower paying tasks ever 'run out' anytime I've ever been on mTurk.

I think when you first start there is a short wait before you cash out. I can't remember how long, but I don't think it's too bad. After that, I believe you can cash out at anytime. You can get paid through Amazon Payments, or you can take your earnings as an Amazon gift card.
