Last Updated on March 4, 2021

Are you a student who is trying to save some money to buy that new game? Or maybe you are a working professional, who needs to save some money for a trip. Or a housewife trying to utilize her extra time to earn some money.

Because having money never hurts, right? This is why I would like to tell you about Appen (previously known as Leapforce). Appen is a firm that helps big companies with their data collection projects, and they accept raters from all around the world.

What is Appen and what are the opportunities available for me?

Basically, you will be providing data which will help these companies improve their products or work on some kind of research. Their are projects from social networking and search giants. And the best part is that they pay in dollars.

The payment rates for various projects varies between 3-20$ per hour, depending on the complexity of the project and your country. People from some countries are paid more than the other. But Appen is currently the biggest crowdsourcing player in the market.

They have even launched 2 other platforms called Figure Eight (earlier known as crowdflower) and Appen 9.

Here are some of the things you could be doing working for them:

  • Search Media Evaluation
  • Social Media Evaluation
  • Translation
  • Transcription
  • Survey and Data Collection
  • Linguistic Specialties
  • Lexicon Annotation
  • Speech Evaluation

Appen Payment Proofs

I have earned a good 1000$+ INR over a period of one year. If you live in a first world country, then you can earn more than 3x this amount. I calculated this when I was doing my taxes, and while giving my details about other earnings, I summed up all my 100$ payments from Appen, and the total came to be around 1200$ Rs. For proof, read my post on Appen below:

    This project processes independent consultant payments on a monthly basis. The payment cycle will close on the last day of every month. Payments will be made to independent contractors on the 14th day of the following month.
    Earnings will be uploaded weekly in your Appen Connect invoice either Tuesday/Wednesday PST for HitApp hours completed from the previous week.
