Clickworker.com Review – It isn’t Scam but Complicated

A few days ago, I was searching for some data entry sites to list on my blog for my readers and stumbled upon an article at About.com where some of the sites were listed. Clickworker.com was one of their recommendations, so I went for it and signed up for the site to test it before recommending it to my visitors.

When I reach their site, it took me very long before the site loaded. Although I’m on a slower Internet connection, but the load time of their site was really miserable. Anyways, I signed up with them and confirmed my account and logged into clickworker.com.

At my account dashboard, I didn’t see any jobs nor clickworker‘s system notified me to take any tests etc. to get eligible for the jobs, as oDesk and Elance do. There were just two offers. One was a simple question in which I asked to answer the question, “from where I knew about clickworker”. I answered it and in return, clickworker.com added EUR 0.10 in my account balance :).

Do you know what happened after my initial earning of EUR 0.10? It never crept up! :P. But don’t think that clickworker.com is a scam or fraud. Let me explain why my earnings stayed at EUR 0.10.

Like all other freelancing websites, clickworker.com has its own strategies and technology for analyzing the freelancers who signed up there in an uncountable number. Soon after you signup, you need to complete some assessments there which helps clickworker.com in evaluating your skills. I failed to take their assessments. To be honest, the assessments were extremely dull.

When I started an assessment, they showed me a URL and asked me to provide details about the company which was behind that URL. I managed to find company name, address (including zip code), telephone number and fax number but I picked up the wrong person as CEO. It was really boring and time consuming. So I decided to cancel the assessment.

Next, I contacted some people who were working at clickworker.com. When I talked to them, I got replies totally diverging my expectations. They were happy with clickworker :). They told me that clickworker has given them micro jobs through which they can generate some extra income in their leisure time.

When I inquired details, they told me that like other freelancing sites, clickworker isn’t crowded much and they can find jobs easily. Additionally, clickworker provides them with micro jobs which are easy to do. According to them, working at clickworker is fun and joy!

So after a thorough research, I concluded that clickworker.com is worthy if you manage to complete their assessments by heart. It is a fact that in initial, it gets hard to build a recognition. You might have noticed that at oDesk, Elance and other freelancing websites, some people earn a lot and some fail to earn even a penny for several months despite of their competitive skills and they give up at the end!

But giving up doesn’t brings success and it applies for all sectors of businesses. With clickworker.com, you can earn good but keep passion in beginning and keep working to build recognition. Once after building a reputation, you will get to know how it is easy to earn money with clickworker :)

[box type="info" align="aligncenter" ]This brief review is my own experience with ClickWorker which I experienced in my one week’s stay with clickworker.com. I haven’t discussed the earning potential of clickworker in this review. I appreciate Clickworker users to share their thoughts in comments that how much they earn with it[/box]

  2. We’ll I agree with this but not 100% agree because I already finished my clickworker assessment but yet no task available for me but I don’t know if it is because my first assessment is just 79%? another how can you say that this is not a scam if you never finish your assesment and start your earnings from them?

    • Hi Kengo, my friends are earning with them and have been paid. So I’m saying that it isn’t a scam. But I left it as my assessments were not getting completed.

  3. Hey brother Rehmat, Asalam u alikum again.. I hope you recognize me from Payoneer (Papal) article.

    Regarding the above Article last night I was doing routine internet surfing and found this earning site. Of course its not a scam nor fraud. Assessment is based on 2 parts.
    1. you already mentioned (find company details)
    2. you need to pass English test (74 easy questions).

    It is legit but now in next step its looking a little complications where I need your help.

    The below message I received while requesting for my money.

    “We must have your tax information in order to process your invoice. We can only send payment to your Pay-pal account in conjunction with valid tax information”

    Any Idea how can I bypass this Taxaion issue OR if there is any process regarding the generation of New tax number from Pakistan so please let me know.

    Further need to advise you to checkout mturk.com (an Amazon Mechanical Turk) very legit but if you can put some light on its procedures as well as payment method so people can get facilitated with this legit Earning way along with high payments.

  4. Hi,I came here looking for reviews of clickworker, so thank you for this information. I’m always on the look out to increase my work at home income. In case you or anyone else was interested you might also want to check out mturk as mentioned in another comment, but also mobileworks.com, which is another crowdsourcing platform, or Premier from mobileworks(they hire independent contractors for a set schedule and pay per hour instead of per task), and transcribeme.com. I’ve done work and been paid by each of these in a consistent manner.
