How to make money by freelancing at Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk)


Quick answer: I don't know how. So this article is more about why are you getting rejected?

Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is an online outsourcing marketplace, for individuals can apply to work online and get paid. For businesses to submit tasks that mainly focus on Human Intelligence Tasks (HITs), to be honest I don't actually know the details because I got rejected.

Yes I was very curious, so a few days ago using my new Amazon account, I applied, then it needed three days for manual review or verification by Amazon staff. But I ended up getting rejected, but it’s okay, I'm just curious and want to try, it seems like not much money I can make there anyway.

I don’t know what qualification of the approval process for MTurk, I don’t have any of my friends that are approved, I guess it is based on your IP location maybe, only specific applications from certain age or regions that are approved. 

Well, after reading from their website: Selecting eligible workers, finally I got some clear clarification why they rejected my application:

  1. Geographic restrictions: MTurk may have specific availability based on geographical regions. It's possible that MTurk is not currently accepting applications from your location. Or there’s no company that selects your region.
  2. Account history: Amazon may consider factors related to your account history, such as previous interactions with Amazon services or adherence to their terms and conditions.
  3. Demographic requirements: MTurk may have specific demographic requirements for their worker pool. These requirements could be based on factors like age, language proficiency, or other demographics.
  4. Application volume: MTurk receives a high volume of applications, and they may limit the number of new workers they accept at a given time. Your application may have been rejected due to a large number of applicants or limited availability.

I don’t actually care. 

While MTurk is a legitimate platform for earning money, because it is Amazon so it won’t scam you, they will certainly transfer you money if you finish the task, or maybe give you an Amazon gift card, I don’t know, I don’t have the chance to experimenting it. 

Yes it may not be the most lucrative or reliable source of income, but still a very interesting if I am able to try. Before you apply, it is advisable to explore other opportunities that align with your skills and interests to find more sustainable ways to make money online in your spare time.
