the task is 8 minutes long

you invoice for 8 minutes

if it takes you less or not, it's the 8 minutes you invoice for

When I used to do Yukon people used to use RaterAid Google Chrome plugin for invoicing as it logged all that automatically.. Don't know if that's still a thing people use!
Thanks Jon, that's what I thought but just wanted to check!

If they say 8 min do close to 8min as possible, too much under- or over will get you flagged. They can be very fussy on RPH on some projects.
There is no benefit to going quicker!

I have just received this email:

Congratulations on qualifying for your first project!!

We would like to offer you an Independent Agent contract at this time.

Any idea how long it takes to start working with them once I've signed the agreement?

Hello,

I have just been accepted to work for Appen, after reading reviews online about the company. I am a bit worried on their payment, some people are saying that they havent been paid after months, but some saying they have.

Has anyone had any experience with them? Any good? Would you recommend?

Thanks

Hello, newbie here :)

I've just started working on Yukon and am confused about invoicing. Are you only allowed to invoice the time they quote for each task on the raterhub site, (e.g. lots of tasks I am getting say they should take 8 minutes to complete) or do you invoice for how long you actually spent working?

As I am new it's taking me significantly longer than their expected times to complete a task at the moment. I'm only getting 3 tasks a day so far, so if their expected time is 8 minutes each then should I be invoicing for 24 minutes a day (although it's taking me about an hour as I'm not up to speed yet)?

Any advice appreciated, thanks!
Regarding invoicing, I read elsewhere, it is normally ok to invoice 10% more time if you are actually spending more than the allotted time, so an extra minute here and there! I am also a newbie and finding it tricky at times.

I am not sure that I would say that Appen are absolutely fine Jon. Appen have changed a lot since taking over LF and especially recently. Getting paid on time has been an issue for some raters over the last couple of months, and communication has been terrible.
Maybe things will sort themselves out eventually, but they are not absolutely fine at the mo.

I think it depends on the project, some are better at communicating than others, some projects have had issues but they use so many platforms for the work I think the issues are more with extracting the data to pay than anything else.

Some Projects def need to be more upfront with what is going on though, even if they are just waiting on the client etc, no communication is frustrating.

Does anyone know how long it takes Appen to finalize your registration, I've had the message below on my login page for nearly a week now and its stopping me applying for jobs.


Thank you for completing the required forms. Your documents have been received, and after we review them, we will finalize your registration.

A follow-up email will be sent if we notice any discrepancies in your paperwork.

I got on Banner 2 weeks ago, it's still not started, supposed to be tomorrow now, looks like the work won't be regular but hard to tell.

paid 14th of the month, you should have submitted the invoice last Monday at the latest.

You always submit on the first working day of the month and are paid on or just before the 14t

Does anyone know when Appen say work in your local timezone but invoice in PST what they mean. It doesn't ask for the exact time I am working in the invoice that I can see so I'm guessing they just want to know you completed it on the right date in PST?

Also if you work on a project that is max 1 hour per day but it takes you 1.20hr obviously you won't be paid for the extra 20 mins but should you put it on the invoice anyway, or just the 1hr.

I would ask them but it takes so long to hear back so thank you for any help!

Took me all morning to send an email to a potential client because I was nervous about the amount of money I was asking for. Pretty sure this never happens to men.
