Why do you use Amazon Mechanical Turk?
Amazon Mechanical Turk is the easiest and most secure way for us to manage and pay such a large workforce.
How do I create my Amazon Mechanical Turk account?
If you are having trouble creating your Amazon Mechanical Turk account, then please refer to our tutorial video.
How do I submit my worker ID to the CrowdSource system?
For information on how to submit your worker ID to the CrowdSource system, then please watch our helpful tutorial. Once we have received your worker ID you will have access to our writing and editing jobs.
Where can I find my Amazon Worker ID?
Once you log in to Amazon MTurk, select the “Your Account” tab at the top of the page. You should see the following: “Dashboard: JaneDoe (If you’re not JANEDOE, click here.)” Your worker ID is located directly below this. It is a 14-figure code that always begins with the letter “A”.
Does it cost me anything to join the team?
No. Joining the Write.com team is absolutely free.
How much are writers paid?
Payments per project vary depending on the skill and time required to fulfill each assignment. We also reward our top performing writers with lucrative bonus incentives!
How long does it take Amazon to transfer money into my account?
For security purposes, Amazon puts a 10-day freeze on your payment account. You must submit 5 HITS per day for 10 days. From the time CrowdSource approves and submits payments, Amazon has 24-48 hour turn-around time to transfer payments to your Amazon Payments account. Once this is complete, the assignment then changes from pending to paid. All balances for payments can be found on your Amazon Payments page.
Why can I not access your writing jobs?
You must submit your Amazon Mechanical Turk worker ID to us through Write.com. Until we have processed your account and you have received a confirmation email from us, you will not have access to our writing jobs.
Which writing style guide do you prefer?
We adhere closely to the AP Stylebook, which is optimized for writing, editing and creating content on the web.
Are there other jobs besides writing/editing jobs?
Yes. We offer a wide variety of jobs aside from writing/editing, including image moderation, product coverage, word breakdowns and many others. Please check Amazon Mechanical Turk for a complete listing of current CrowdSource jobs.
Can I retake the writing assessment?
Yes. You can retake the writing assessment once every 24 hours on Write.com.
