Lowest pay you will work for online job
« on: July 09, 2016, 10:17:49 PM »
What is the lowest pay that you will work for in an online job? In other words, when you take job online, what will be your acceptable lowest pay rate? On freelancer site, I have listed $4 per hours as my minimum pay rate. The lowest amount I can work for online is $2 per hour. Anything less that this will not even compensate my internet bill.

I have done penny task on micro task sites before I am sure that probably did not earn to much per hour. To me money is money. I am willing to work min wage in my country too and have many times so I don't mind earning low online but it would be nice to find something decently paying.

I don't even know what the possibilities are yet. If I could make 2 or 4  per hour I would be ecstatic. Right now I make whatever I make and I'm trying to unravel the puzzle of all this. Hopefully I will settle into some things that will work well for me. So in the meantime I am considering all of this a hobby and I'm not worrying too much about the money amount. There is a lot of opportunities out there. I just have to be careful not to spend too much time on it while I'm earning so low.

I have worked for PTC and clicked links that worth fraction of a cent. I have worked on GPT and microtask sites that pay you just few cents for tasks. However, I have stopped working for tasks that have low pay. When I calculated the internet data use and time spent on the task,I discovered that I was not earning, in fact I was incurring loss while doing these penny tasks.

Before when I was still working as a freelancer my rate is $5 per hour but I had stopped already and I am focusing myself now posting in forums where my schedule is not that stressful not unlike before when I am writing articles. The forum owners is the one who gives the amount of rate per post that is why no need to give them the minimum rate that I want.

My main online work is content and ebook writing. I don't actually dictate the rate. Instead, each project has a fixed rate and it's up to the writer to take a project or not. Subject difficulty varies as well as number of words but it's always easy to do a project on a subject that I have done in the past. When a subject is that easy, I can turn in more in a day and earn more in the process.

I'm not so hung up on the amount so much as the pay rate relative to what I have to do to earn it. I have done  a few penny jobs in the past and not really minded because I enjoyed working on the site. I mean, take ChatAbout for instance; a lot of people wouldn't touch it with a barge pole, but I really enjoyed it even though it took me 4-6 weeks to earn a paltry $5. -and they just like that, they disappeared on us without a word LOL

Well, when it comes to lowest payment I could work for, I personally cosider that $1 per hour would do me good as long as I have the time for it. Sometimes I have up to 10 hours to work online so that would be $10 a day if I work 10 full hours, however, I do not really think there's any PTC site that would pay that much per hour, I will do some research anyway.

For me, I have no specific rate of pay as long as I am able to earn.   I recall receiving as low as US$ 3, but I don't have any hourly rate.  I don't mind working for a minimum wage fior the time being because the opportunities are limited for me.  I also try to diversify my earning opportunities so I can earn some decent income.

Well I really would be lying to myself if I said that I am above a certain pay rate, because I have literally worked for 0.005 cents before.  Of course this is the PPC sites, so there is not too much time investment, but still.  I do not do those much anymore, so given that I would say my rate has gone up a little bit, but there is nothing that I really write off without giving it a little chance to see if it is worth it.

For me, I think I won't go lower than what Postloop pays when it comes to posting in forums. I won't even touch PTC sites. I don't write articles, but Fiverr's rate is "decent" for me for small jobs. You get $3.92 per gig there minus the fees.

I use to do chacha answering questions, now that was low pay, I probably will not even go that low again, I really don't have a lowest I will go limit though, I look at time it take versus the pay.

I have at least $7 an hour as my lowest rate. I figure that it would be just as much as if I were to work a minimum wage job that pays $8 an hour and then having taxes removed from that hour. Does that make sense? I do not try to go any lower than that, but when I started mturking I was doing penny jobs that I just clicked and then some people were saying that it just encourages more people to pay low rates so I stopped doing that low paying work.

It depends on what the work is. If it's something simple like forum posting, then even $2 per hour is fine. If it's something like writing a knowledge article, I would expect something closer to $10 per hour.
