The video call verification is so easy, literally 30 seconds where they can see you and ask a brief question about your profile to verify its you. I've done it twice (they ask you to reverify every so often for security), it's no bother.
Started with them in April after being on the wait list for almost a year. Was a crap month for me last month (you can see from the earnings I didn't work much), but there's always money to be made with them once you're in.
I freelance for an academic focussed proofreading company. I've also got private clients who I've built relationships with via the likes of Upwork and PPH then taken offsite, I sell hourlies and bid for jobs occasionally on those sites as well. Some I get through word of mouth referrals, then...
Really need to get my arse into gear, so joining in with a challenge for the first time in ages! Not going to count any invoices paid for work done in August, and will update my approx. earnings from Crisp at the end of the month.
Aiming for £300 minimum.
