MTurk - account under review
« on: June 16, 2017, 08:20:33 AM »
Hello everybody,

I need some help and information here. I've been meaning to apply for the Amazon's MTurk for ages and when I joined this forum I remembered about it. I've read tons of information and success stories - how much you can make and so on.

So, two days ago I've made an account and joined but now it says that my account is under review whether I'll get accepted or not.

What I want to know is what exactly does this mean? Do all accounts first go under review? How long till they give you an actual answer? Is there a way of increasing your chances of getting accepted??

Thank you so much. Your help is greatly appreciated :)

It usually takes a while, I think for me it took a few weeks and then I never used the account even though I still have it. You can't do anything once you have applied.

They have to review accounts to make sure of fraud and duplicate accounts.

Did you do anything out of the ordinary? Or did you log in from some other country?

No, Ipa07. Like I've written in my first post, I just newly signed up there because before I was restricted due to where I live. Now that I could finally sign up, I did and it immediately went into ''account under review''.

Thank you, Alex, for giving me the explanation :) much appreciated. I guess I will just sit and patiently wait since they still didn't approve or reject me. Fingers crossed because it looks like a really good site to earn cash on.

I signed up for Mturk long ago, but I don't really like those kind of tasks. I find them too exacting. I haven't made more than a dollar or two on there. I know some people really like it though, and do well on there. I suppose after awhile, alot of the tasks are more or less the same.

It seems like I won't be making anything on MTurk. I just received my email today and they informed me that I was ''sadly'' declined. I hate that they say they can't let you know why or give any sort of explanation.

A wild guess as to why I got rejected is probably due to my location - I am not the resident of U.S.

I guess I will look for other opportunities! A bit sad because I was getting excited about possibly joining their community.

Had the same response too. It took them 3 weeks to tell me that they are 'sad' to say I wasn't approved for reasons they 'can't' tell.
The funny thing is, it took them that long when in fact they can do it in a day or so. I wonder what they are basing. Probably they are full of members?

They've been so terrible with shutting down people's accounts and not even helping them to unlock and get back into Mturk. They've shut my account down for 2 years and after multiple attempts at trying to resolve the problem by contacting them, they say that it's basically hopeless. Oh well.
