10 best legitimate Micro Jobs sites to Make Money Online

Micro Jobs sites (more precisely crowdsourcing websites) provide a platform  for  Employers and Workers where Employers post jobs(tasks) to get their work done and Workers complete the jobs(task) to get  money. Workers are free to  choose tasks that matches their skills the best.

See an example task below to see how it works –

Here , the Employers is asking worker to complete a Sign-up job. The Worker completes the task and submit proof(whatever employer asks for). The employer checks out his work and if he is satisfied with the work he approves the work and pay an amount of $0.08 to the worker.

  1. Hi sir/madam,
    I want to do the microworkers admission test. I completed that test. After completing the test it shows the following message.

    “Ip address does not match”.
    What will I do for this issue? I am eagerly waiting for your kind response.

    1. I completed my admission test with 87.5% a couple of weeks ago without any problem. Have you tried different devices and browsers? Have you tried logging out and then login back to try the task again? Have you tried switching off your internet source and then switching on again to finish the task?

      1. I have opened my microworker account in my smartphone but have written my microworker admission test in my laptop it doesnt recognize my IP address and also with my phone the same mistake us happend.. how can u solve this and continue my admission.. please tell me some suggestions.

        1. Mohammed you tried to access microworker from a country that is embargoed. i’m sorry to say you can’t fool them, simply you can’t join.

  2. RapidWorkers Is A Joke!

    I signed up for that just to see what jobs were available. Nothing But Junk – Do Not Waste Your Time There!

    Example: 30 cents to download a text file. But in order to do that you have to complete some other “offers”.

  3. hello,

    and one thing also that the minimum cashout is 10$.

  4. Hi

    Thank your for best information but I want you to help me with below question.

    which countries are eligible to participate in above online tasks sites?

    I’m in Africa

    Looking forward to your answers

  5. I have an rapidworkers account.. They say that they don’t pay through payza.As I am from Bangladesh, Bangladesh doesn’t have paypal.Is there any other way to withdraw money from rapidworkers??

  6. hello, I’m using crowdflower, I’m spending a very good time with this site.
    I am a member of 19 April 2017, so far I have withdrawn 131 dollars.

  7. That article is awesome! Thank you for sharing this great content. By the way, another great way to make online is participating in online surveys.

    1. Payment options at MTurk are – Amazon gift card or Amazon payment account and Direct deposit. You submit your bank account details. They convert your mturk balance to your local currency and deposit directly in your bank account.

  8. Hi Sudhir Sheoran, Thanks for listing this website to get a micro job easily. It’s really interesting to know info about these jobs. This post is really useful to me and others to get the micro-jobs to work in our spare time to earn a decent income.

  9. Melissa Stroebel

    i have started doing some work on remote tasks. Its basically annotating images and drawing cuboids around vehicles to teach robots how to spot vehicles. I’ve tried it and it automatically pays into my paypal account weekly. It’s worth a try.

  10. Thank you for sharing this list and I really appreciate the fact that you have gone back and updated based on what you found out about the company.

    I have heard of a couple of these sites and others I am just now hearing about for the first time.

    I have been using Picoworkers as an employer and that seems to work pretty well, I also submitted a few tasks but have not been approved yet so not sure how it works.

    I know for a fact that they are still taking deposits from employers but not sure how it works for making a withdrawal. I will probably just reuse the money I make to pay people to do tasks for me so in that case it might work fairly well.

    I started trying to use Rapid Workers but their site seems to have issues and I am not sure I will end up using them in the long run.

    I really appreciate you taking the time to put this list together so now I can explore my options!

  11. Thank You boss. I appreciate your work. You are a true blogger keep it up and share with us this type of pricious knowledge allways.

  12. Is it possible to earn AT LEAST 5 TO 10 dollars in a day by doing micro working jobs?
    How much time i have to work for earn 10 dollars a day.?

    1. It is possible if the user lives in a first world country like USA, UK, Australia, Canada etc. A task worth $0.15 should not take more than 2-3 minutes. Availability of tasks can also affect earning.

  13. Hi sudhir,

    Thanks for all the info but I tried joining for mechanical turk but as they said no openings for Indians and next I tried for microworkers but it’s unable to send sms to them kindly help me out..

  14. I like the dynamics that these sites employ but I have a doubt, do they still pay? I’m struck by clickworkers, rapidworkers and microworkers. I glad you in advance for this article. ⛅

  15. The link for accepting a task in Rapidworkers does not show.
    I’ve chosen an International task so I think I should see it.
    But I’m only seeing the link for “Not interested in this job.”
    The status of the job is still “green”
    Is it possible that the slots for a country is already full?
    I hope I’d know why this is happening.
    Thank you for your post. Very informative.
