I'm hoping my PM has sorted out my pay...fingers crossed when the invoices are updated tomorrow.

Has anyone been paid for March yet....I've had my invoice approved but no payment yet.

I thinks it's usually anywhere between today and the 14th.

I keep getting this, but it requires an Apple device (which I don't have) and so I don't know why they keep inviting me.

Anyone doing the Assonet transcription tasks? Looks bloody complicated, but I need to earn a bit more money to have enough bucks at Payoneer to be able to withdraw it all. Like the previous transcription task, I've done the 13 Q qualification test, now just to see if they get back to me for the other part of qualification.

I think it's often a case of those who do the qualification the quickest get the work. If it was sent out in the early hours, I would often do the test as soon as I see it...before I do anything else, literally fall out of bed, get a coffee and do it immediately Sometimes at 6am. Then once you've done some good work, you tend to get more tasks.

I'm taking a break from it at the moment though, my bills have all gone up and I've taken a job in a shop to get a store discount on my food etc. What's the minimum payout on Payoneer...it's not fair they have any limit!!

I think it's 50 dollars minimum. I've also got some money in Euros, but I don't think you can convert it and add it to the USD balance.

I don't want to do transcriptions for them, except to make up the balance to 50. The latest project looks awful, so I certainly didn't rush to do the qualification!

I didn't do much transcription work last month and I seem to have been taken off the surveys now. I don't know if they're related or if the project has finished...shame as it was an easy $9 a week for minimal effort.

I just came on to ask this, as the surveys have disappeared for me as well, I wasn't sure if it was only me, or if they had just ended them in general.

As for transcription work on Appen, I never do it as it's always 10 times harder than it has to be. There is usually about 30 pages of instructions before you can even make an attempt at the test.

That's what's putting me off at the moment, all the unpaid tests that you have to do before potentially getting any paid work. What I've noticed is...they are now sending me more invites than I ever had because I am not doing anything.
On my new shop job, I had 2-3 hours paid online training at home, and it's just brought it home how much some of these online companies get away with.
I really did enjoy the transcription but other than the specialised stuff which was well paid once I challenged them, I rarely was able to make NMW on the other stuff as you had to maintain such a high standard which whilst satisfying to do, reduces your pay dramatically.
As well as the transcription invites that just keep coming, I've also been invited to Yukon, but I'm guessing this has lots of unpaid training and testing too?

I haven't had any this week - and looking at the chats, many others haven't either. It's all very odd on there at the moment.

I assume most of the Appen jobs are the same training wise, certainly the better paid ones. Tbh I've never had much success with them, like you I'm getting a ton of invites, I managed to pass the Arrow Butler job, but have yet to do anything on it. Also got an invite for recording words, but you have to do it through the Appen China platform, and I can't even see where to log in, nevermind do any work.

I just don't think they're a very well run company really, everything seems to confusing with them. I hate all the different platforms, emails and passwords you have to use.

I can't get going with their platform which needs face recognition, the amount of time I have wasted on that. At least you can see if that is needed on application which is good. All in all they have helped me out of a bind in the past money wise, I can make £2-300 a month on transcription if I need it and apply super quick, but you are tied to the computer ready to work at a moment's notice and I think the hourly rate non-specialised must be £5-6 ish....Or quite possibly I'm just too slow and picky in trying to get every word right :ROFLMAO:.

Honestly, Appen must send me about 10 emails a day. Considering I've done less than 10 hours work for them in the year or more since I signed up, it's insane. They email me prjects that require an iphone even though it is on my profile with them that I have only an Android phone.

Because I need the money I currently have applications for two transcription projects, the Yukon rating project and the voice recording one on the China platform. I'll probably either get none of them or else all of them at the same time.:rolleyes:

They appear to be back this week. It's the only thing I'm on at the moment.
I got the three back too... I can only do two as one hasn't been working. I've tried Chrome and Safari. I wonder if you use a different browser and if they all work for you, thanks.

Ive tried Appen and really wanted it to work but just cant get to grips with their projects, lots of the jobs seem interesting but the lack of support is a let down

I've only been able to work 2/3 as well using Chrome and clearing the cache etc. I haven't done this week's yet so don't know if it's been resolved.

As far as I know it's $50. Don't know if it's also 50 for Euros or £s.
