2. Crowdsource.com (Onespace)
Crowdsource is a legit micro jobs website. They also post their tasks on the popular Mturk means what you can do through crowdsource , can also be done through Mturk but in my opinion you should do tasks on crowdsource as it got a great working interface . You can do small tasks like image tagging, categorization , transcription , survey , writing etc which don’t take much time and skills. The best thing about crowdsource is that there is no withdrawal limit. There are currently 269 qualification tests like Quality assurance Specialist , Junior copy writer , Senior copy writers. More the test you qualify , more the work available to you . Crowdsource is working across 180 countries.
Note: Crowdsource and Mturk are no longer working together. Crowdsource is now Onespace.com.

Shorttask.com (Update – It’s a big Scam)
Shorttask is pretty much like Mturk in term of user-interface. People who post jobs are called “Seekers” and who complete the tasks are called “Solvers”. ShortTask has over 125,000 workers and more than 5000 Seekers in its database. At the time of writing this post , 1990 jobs are available. Short Task enables millions of workers to select tasks of their choice and their own time frame to complete the task .
I have heard a lot of bad thing online about Shorttask, still I am mentioning it in my list as its working fine for me. You must meet the minimum withdrawal amount to get paid and the withdrawal limit is Just $10 now only.
Update – Like most other people who tried shorttask.com , I too didn’t get my Payment. Don’t Join this.
Update: Finally Finally , after waiting a long time of 6 months , I got a message “You have received payment from ShortTask”. But still it does not make ShortTask a reliable source of income. Join it on your own risk. Also there are not many employers left to hire you.

This newly launched site is creating a lot of buzz these days. It’s new but paying to workers regularly and have potential to become a good alternative of Microworkers. The concept is same, Employers are there to post tasks and workers to complete those tasks. On following instruction properly and submitting correct task completion proof makes you money. The interface of Picoworkers is very similar to the Microworkers. When you sign up, you get $2 which gives you a chance to become employer. Yes the sign up bonus can not be withdrawn, you can only spend those $2 for giving tasks to other people. There are not much employers there but the site is growing and expecting good in near future. They usually take 10 days to process withdrawal request.
