How to Make Money with Amazon's Mechanical Turk

Updated on July 3, 2012

After doing your research about Amazon's Mechanical Turk you may have decided that it is possible to make money through this program. However although it is possible to make decent money through mturk it can also be a bit overwhelming to use at first. This article is a step by step walk through with pictures included to assist you in completing jobs on Amazon's mechanical turk. Below I have listed every step in accepting and completing a HIT.


Money is earned on Amazon's Mechanical Turk by the worker via doing HITs. Some HITs require qualifications to be able to complete them, some of which require tests such as grammar tests, English proficency tests etc.

Once you are logged on to Mturk look through the available HITs for you by browsing the HIT tab and clicking the sub-tab "HITs Available to You".

Now that you have a list of HITs available to you based on your qualifications you will need to find a HIT you would like to do. When first starting out don't worry about he amount of money you will be making, you can do this once you have a feel for actually completing the HITs. Once you find a HIT from the list that you'd like to do click on the link to the right titled "View a HIT in this Group".


Have you ever used Mturk to make money online?

After you have clicked "view a HIT from this group" you will be lead to a screen where you can view what the hit actually entails and a list of instructions for the HIT. If you decide that you are able to complete this HIT and would like to you can choose "Accept HIT" and begin working on it. Take note that HITs are on a timer which is located in the top left corner of the pages, these timers usually give you ample time to complete the HIT.

Finally after you have completed your HIT and are confident with the results you will need to Submit it to receive credit! There will be a Submit button at the bottom of the HIT. Also, note that if at any time you decide you do not complete to do the hit there is a return HIT button at the bottom left of the page.
