Clickworker Review 2022 – How Much Money Can You Make?

If you’re looking for casual and flexible home jobs to make some extra money, Clickworker could be worth a look.

This unbiased and detailed ClickWorker review explains exactly what you can expect from the site. It also answers the question you surely wish to ask: how much money can you make on Clickworker?

Why Trust ME?

Clickworker was one of the first sites I reviewed for HomeWorkingClub. I first tried out the site back in 2017, and have been a member since.

I frequently log on to my own account on the Clickworker website, check the service out, and revisit this review to report on any changes. I last updated this Clickworker review in July 2022.

Clickworker seems to be going from strength to strength at the moment. During a recent update, I was pleased to see that Clickworker had had a significant visual overhaul. This was good to see, because it was all starting to look rather dated. (Ironically, you will have to sign up for yourself to see it, because Clickworker doesn’t permit users to share screenshots of the “back end” part of the site. (Other blogs showing this are breaking the rules!))

On this most recent update, I was also delighted to see more jobs live on the platform that I have at any point in the last five years. However, as you will find out later in this Clickworker review, the fact there are lots of jobs on the platform on one occasions doesn’t mean there always will be.

At HomeWorkingClub, we’re known for giving an honest and down-to-earth assessment of the sites we review. You can find out about our methods and values here.

Let’s start right at the beginning.

What is Clickworker?

Clickworker is a website where you can carry out small tasks for small payments. Clickworker also has an app so you can complete tasks on the go.

The site comes under the category of microworking sites – where you do micro tasks for micro money!

Specific tasks on Clickworker include things like:

  • Data-entry style work.
  • Taking photos.
  • Training Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems by helping with repetitive tasks that require the human brain.
  • Providing recordings of your voice.
  • Completing surveys.

Is Clickworker Legit and Safe?

Clickworker is a legitimate site. The company has been established for many years. There are plenty of microworking sites out there that aren’t worth your time, but Clickworker is one of the better ones.

Clickworker was established over 15 years ago. With how quickly things move in the online jobs world, this means it’s been around a long time.

Setting Realistic Expectations

Having used Clickworker for several years, it’s worth emphasising that the level of work available on the platform tends to wax and wane. (When we updated this review in July 2022 there was a good selection of available jobs, but there weren’t very many tasks available at all on our previous check a few months previously).

The number of projects on Clickworker’s books influence how much work is available, as do the number of people actively working on the platform and scooping up the jobs. Furthermore, the availability of tasks can depend on your physical location.

There are two important things to learn from all this:

  1. Sites like Clickworker are best for side income. You can’t depend on sites like this for permanent, ongoing work.
  2. Just because you find nothing on Clickworker one day, it doesn’t mean there won’t be a flood of available work the next.

The idea is that you can dip in and out of the work as and when you have time, which makes it a great home working option for anyone who wants a little side income. Most tasks require no specialist skills or formal qualifications, so this is a good entry-level home working option to look into.

For people willing to grind away at the work (some of which is often plentiful and straightforward), it’s possible to put the hours in and earn real money from Clickworker – but only when the work is available. We’ll talk exact numbers later in the review.

Getting started with Clickworker

Where is Clickworker Available?

It’s possible to sign up as a Clickworker from “many different countries,” so long as you are able to receive Paypal, Payoneer or SEPA bank transfer payments. Wise (formerly Transferwise) was available for a while, but it seemed to have been withdrawn last time we updated this Clickworker review.

Clickworker payment methods

Clickworker does seem to open and close applications from specific countries depending on the site’s need for workers. As such, it makes sense to join when you can, in order to “get your foot in the door.”

It’s good to see an online platform that isn’t restricted only to those in the United States.

It’s also important to note that although applications are often available in several nations across the world, the site itself is only available in English and German.

How Old do you Have to Be to Work for Clickworker?

You must be 18 or older to work for Clickworker. When you register, the only dates of birth available are for those over 18, and the age limit is stated in the terms and conditions.

If you’re a little younger and looking for some work you can do online, check out our online jobs for teens article. 

Once you’ve registered with the site, you’re required to fill out some basic information relating to your language skills, work experience and “hobbies and know-how.” This is so you can be offered work suited to your skills.

Once all this is done, it’s best to head for the Assessments section. You find it along the left-hand menu panel when you’re logged in to Clickworker. Here you can learn how to complete certain Clickworker tasks and test your abilities, which is a prerequisite for accessing certain jobs.

There’s no telling which qualification assessments will become available at a specific time. During a previous update of this Clickworker review, I noticed a new assessment to become an “author for English texts” – but I’ve not seen it since.

A persistent effort to log on regularly will give you your best chance of grabbing and completing assessments when they’re available. These include the all-important UHRS assessments, which we’ll discuss shortly.

What Kind of Work is Available on Clickworker?

In order to respect Clickworker’s confidentiality agreement, I can’t be too specific about the work I’ve personally done there, but the Clickworker site gives plenty of examples.

Work can include:

  • Proofreading
  • Categorizing websites and other data
  • Mystery photography (going into shops and photographing certain displays)
  • Online research
  • Data processing
  • Data entry jobs
  • Text creation, such as writing product descriptions
  • Completing surveys or participating in academic studies

These are just some examples, and I’ve come across plenty of other tasks. They’re typically jobs that only take seconds or minutes, rather than hours, to complete.

Notably, in recent years there seems to be quite a bit of work around speech recognition and training artificial intelligence. This is work that Clickworker promotes to its corporate clients.

By settling in and getting into the flow of a particular task, you can perform hundreds of these “micro jobs” and end up earning a reasonable hourly rate – so long as the work is available.

Variety of Clickworker jobs

How Much Work is There on Clickworker?

When it comes to the amount of available work, things can really vary.

As I said earlier in this Clickworker review, I saw more available tasks this time around than ever before.

I should also emphasise that you could well log on and find the platform is going through a dry patch. Only a few months ago, that’s what I saw. I suspect that some of the people online who say it’s a “total waste of time” may have only looked once, and not given it a fair crack.

(Please note that the reason there are few screenshots in this section is that Clickworker’s confidentiality agreement doesn’t allow task details to be shared. Some home working sites ignore stuff like that, but we don’t!)

The Clickworker App

There’s also a Clickworker app. This has been around a while now and provides more opportunities to earn money, it’s also great for those people who prefer to work from a mobile device – something I’ll never personally understand!

The app is available for iOS and Android, and allows you to complete some of your Clickworker tasks “on the go.”

Clickworker app screenshot

Regardless of your view of working using your phone, it is worth checking out the app when you’re looking to make a little extra money. Occasionally there seem to be jobs on the app that you don’t see on a computer.

The app is modern and well-designed, and it’s pleasing that the desktop Clickworker website has now “caught up” in terms of design.

The Clickworker app is also used as a means of 2-Factor Authentication when you log onto the website. You have to open the app to log in.

UHRS Work Via Clickworker

In addition to the work on the Clickworker platform itself, assessments are sometimes available for UHRS, the “Universal Human Relevance System.” This is a secondary microworking platform that Clickworker members can gain access to.

As I understand it, entry into UHRS opens and closes in various countries depending on the volume of work available and the need for microworkers.

UHRS is a completely separate platform, so we have a dedicated UHRS guide you can read on that. We try to keep it updated as and when we find out which countries have work available.

UHRS screenshot

Once you gain access to UHRS (and it’s well worth waiting to do so), the amount of work can feel endless. There’s plenty at the time of writing, but I should point out there have been times when it’s dried up.

When there IS UHRS work available, home workers who are prepared to sit and grind away at the tasks can earn decent regular money from Clickworker and UHRS.

Coupled with the additional work on the native Clickworker platform, this means Clickworker is well worth getting involved with. 

As mentioned above, UHRS runs on a separate platform to Clickworker, and requires additional registration. There is more training to complete and more assessments to pass. However, it’s all worth doing. Access to UHRS gives you an extra means of earning money, which is useful as and when there’s less work on Clickworker itself. You can read more about UHRS here.

(It’s fair to say the initial process to get into UHRS involves jumping through a few hoops).

PeanutLabs on Clickworker

Clickworker also has a partnership with Peanut Labs, a survey platform.

As with UHRS, Clickworker isn’t the only route in to Peanut Labs. It’s also available on other platforms (such as ySense).

In my experience, Peanut Labs is rather hit and miss, and probably won’t end up being a particularly lucrative use of Clickworker – but it does give you another means of earning money from the site.

Money: How Much can I Earn from Clickworker?

Clickworker tasks can earn you anything from a few cents each to several Euros / Dollars. There are occasional high-value tasks too – including one I was tempted by when I last updated this Clickworker review.

It’s very hard to predict an average hourly rate for Clickworker as it varies considerably on how much work is available, whether you qualify for it, and how quickly you can do it.

Interestingly, Clickworker used to make a prediction of an hourly rate in the region of $9 per hour, or “well over $10” with experience and concentration. When I last re-checked the FAQs, the company seemed to have removed this bold prediction and given a more realistic prediction of variable earnings.

Microworking platforms aren’t a place where you’ll earn “mega bucks.” However, if you find specific jobs you enjoy doing and there are plenty of those tasks available, you can get into earning money that represents a reasonable hourly rate. If you get into UHRS, you have even more chance of this being a realistic goal.

Based on some of the UHRS tasks I’ve worked on in the past, I quickly built up to a pace that clocked up to about US$8-11 per hour – for fairly simple work I could do with music playing in the background. There are better-paid tasks out there there, and plenty of anecdotal reports online of people making more like $15-20 per hour once they’ve hit their stride.

Your own mileage WILL vary!

Despite these broadly encouraging rates, I’d strongly advise against relying on Clickworker (or any microworking platform) for a serious full-time income. There’s no guarantee of constant work, and performing these tasks for more than a couple of hours at a time can be rather soul-destroying.

Clickworker itself makes the same point, stating in the FAQs that it “should not be considered a substitute for full-time employment or self-employment.”

However, for those willing to “make hay while the sun shines,” this is a solid way to make some solid money.

The best way to tackle it is to find a task you enjoy and just get into the flow of it.

Clickworker is particularly good for paying for extra expenses. A student, for example, could work out that an hour sitting performing a specific task will pay for a takeaway or an evening in the bar. It’s hard to complain about any kind of “money tap” that can be switched on at will – and in that regard Clickworker excels.

Getting Paid

Clickworker offers payment via:

  • PayPal
  • Payoneer
  • SEPA Bank Transfer

It’s good to see that this is a crowdsourcing platform that pays in “real money” – rather than via a mysterious points system!

Clickworker Problems

Nothing’s perfect in this world, unfortunately, and Clickworker’s not without its issues.

The most significant is something we’ve already covered: you can’t count on any consistency of work via the platform.

If you happen to sign up from the right country at the right time AND find the UHRS assessments immediately available, you’ve unlocked an immediate stream of reliable and reasonably well-paid microwork.

However, that’s not to say the work won’t dry up at some point. As such, you can’t really make Clickworker something you rely on to pay the bills. The best strategy to increase your chance of success is to check Clickworker regularly and be ready to dive on top of new jobs and assessments as soon as they appear.

Another problem is technical issues. It seems there are sometimes tasks that don’t work quite right, causing you to invest a little time before abandoning them. The amount of money involved is usually so small that it doesn’t seem worth emailing support about it. This is particularly aggravating on UHRS.

Finally, some tasks may not “sit well” with all users in terms of adult content or revealing personal information.

Clickworker Referral Scheme

As a signed up member of Clickworker, you can refer friends to the platform. You receive a 5 Euro payout for anybody who signs up once they’ve earned 10 Euros. 

While this is a good way to earn few extra bucks, you need to refer people who are going to stick with it. Your friends need to do enough work to earn some money before you will see any yourself!

Clickworker Support

It’s worth mentioning that if you do have problems, Clickworker’s email support service is fast and efficient.

Whilst testing out the service for my Clickworker reviews, I’ve queried several different things, related to assessments and technical issues, and always received prompt and helpful answers.

Other Clickworker Feedback

Clickworker TrustPilot Reviews

Whenever we publish a review, we also have a look a what other people online have to say.

The Clickworker TrustPilot rating is pretty average, sitting on a 2.8 star rating out of 5, at the time of writing (July 2022).

This is a slight improvement since we last checked – perhaps reflective of more people finding a good range of work on the platform.

Clickworker TrustPilot rating

It’s always important to look at these things in context. A lot of the negative reviews concern UHRS (which is largely beyond Clickworker’s control). Furthermore, several are about a suspended Clickworker account, and there are a few from click workers in Egypt complaining about the removal of the PayPal payment method in that country.

It’s reasonable to point out that these crowdsourcing platforms are often themselves targets of scammers, and people who try to apply from unauthorised countries. Complaints about suspended accounts sometimes relate to issues like this.

What there isn’t, within these Clickworker reviews, is anything to indicate that Clickworker doesn’t pay people, that Clickworker is a scam, or that the company engages in any shady practices. There’s a screenshot of some recent payments made to me below, by way of a Clickworker payment proof.

Clickworker payment proof screenshot

Another thing that’s good to see is that Click worker responds to reviews on TrustPilot – indicative of a platform that cares about its reputation.

Better Business Bureau

The site isn’t currently accredited with the Better Business Bureau – at the time of writing, that site states that “the business profile is being updated.” As such, there’s no Clickworker BBB rating to share here at this time.

Clickworker Reddit

Reddit is another useful source of user feedback. A few recent threads refer to bans and deactivated accounts, but the majority of the Clickworker Reddit page consists of discussions about particular tasks.

Clickworker Reddit thread

Reassuringly, there’s a constant flow of new discussion. If anything, that provides a positive indication that there are plenty of people out there regularly working on Clickworker and earning (at least a little) money from it.

Clickworker Review: Conclusion

Clickworker is a decent enough platform. It’s also improved significantly over the years. Flexible work is available more consistently, and the app gives you more options too.

If you gain UHRS access, Clickworker becomes even more useful. Unstable income is a really scary thing for many freelancers and homeworkers, so having access to a platform you can turn to when you need to grind away and earn some extra is really handy.

Clickworker graphic

There may be some luck involved as to whether Clickworker is recruiting in your country and whether assessments are open for UHRS, but it’s worth hanging in there to gain full access. As of our last update, UHRS applications were available in all countries, but this is subject to change.

I’d suggest signing up to Clickworker straight away, and grabbing the first opportunity to get onto UHRS. Even if you don’t end up doing much of this Clickworker work, knowing you’ve got it to fall back on provides a small sense of security.

Clickworker Pros and Cons

The Good

  • An established and trustworthy platform for earning extra cash.
  • The opportunity to also join UHRS.
  • Clickworker mobile app for earning money “on the move.”
  • Efficient support.
  • Generally quite simple tasks.

The Bad

  • No guarantee of ongoing work.
  • Limited earning potential.
  • Tasks can be monotonous.

Clickworker Tips

  • Always look out for new assessments to get the chance of extra tasks.
  • Take the opportunity to get onto UHRS as soon as it presents itself – it’s the best chance of ongoing work.
  • Check Clickworker regularly – and don’t assume one quiet day means there are never any jobs on the platform!

Some Things to Check Out Next

Alternatives to Clickworker that you may want to check out include Prizerebel (see Prizerebel review here) and Swagbucks (see Swagbucks review here).

  1. Hello Ben. Thank you so much for this review. I have stumbled upon clickworker and got hooked on this site, wanting to get a small job while I am unemployed. It’s great that I have read your review, I have gained insights on how does the work in clickworker, works. Hoping I get a job in clickworker while I work on my Paypal because I heard I might not be accepted if the Paypal is not verified. Thank you so much and stay safe.

    • Thanks Joe and good luck with it. I’m not sure about whether your PayPal needs to be verified, but I have found Clickworker’s support to be helpful and responsive, so I’m sure they can give you an answer on that.

      I don’t see why that would be a problem but to be 100% sure I’d contact support for both companies.

      I’ve not personally in the US so have not experienced that. I suspect it’s just to verify your ID and location but if you have any doubt I’d suggest asking Clickworker’s support and deciding for yourself if you’re comfortable with it.

      Best wishes,

  2. I signed up for clickworker and about a week later was lucky enough to be able to take and pass the qualification for UHRS ( as of 10/15/2020 UHRS qualification is not available ). It really is all in how you want to do it and how long you want to grind away at it. Between the 2 I have made $53.18 on Clickworker and $97.65 on UHRS in 2 weeks, it’s really not bad for some extra money. You do have to wait on payouts though. 28 days on UHRS for payout and on Clickworker time varies from 7 days to 60 days, so keep that in mind and make sure you check that if you are looking for a quick pay out…
    all in all, I do it in my free time and down time at work and it’s a great way to pull in some extra funds to pay a bill or two or just put into savings. Good luck to all!

  3. Hey Bem,
    Nice job and detailed explanation. If you don’t mind can you please advise me how to get affiliate/referral link from Clickworker? I tried out but I couldn’t. Many thanks in advance.

  4. Hi Ben,

    Just signed up for an account on the clickworker site and it says it will not pay out unless I enter a tax reference?

    It requires a European sales tax-identification number (UID) and seems to indicate that is is now mandatory to receive payments.

  5. Hi Ben,

    Thank you for your review. So as a Canadian living abroad, do you know if I can sign up for Canadian jobs? My paypal account is through my Canadian bank and I’ll be returning to Canada in the next few months so if I don’t have to sign up for another paypal account that’d be great! 🙂

    • I’m not sure Natalie. I do know that it can cause problems from country to country so I’d suggest creating an account and then asking their support for advice on that. They usually get back to you pretty quickly.

  7. Good day Mr Ben. i have been kind of wondering, why does the click worker website display two different homepage? i mean, if i type clickworker.com on my web browser, it displays a homepage with a bit yellow and an entirely white background but if i move through the link you provided and some other link i find on the internet, it displays the homepage pics you have in your just concluded review with the same setup and content.
    I am a bit confused.

    • The home page is aimed both at people who want to work and companies that may wish to use Clickworker to get tasks done. The page I link to is one aimed specifically at workers. Nothing to worry about.

  8. Hi Ben, thank you for this. I’ve just signed up for clickworker to do over the school holidays for a bit of extra money before school starts again, and then thought I’d better check how legit it was, and found your site. Very informative for on line work plus my son has just finished his GCSEs and was thinking of on line work so I’m going to check out your teen link. Regards Christine

  10. Hi Ben, I have been unemployed for some time now and have signed up with clickworker. Apart from that, is there any other work from home sites that you recommend I should check it out? I am from SEA btw.

  11. Great review, thank you for taking the time to do it. Out of curiosity, do you have to put up a profile photo on your profile? I am very private and there is no way I will use a photograph of myself. Is that something they require in order to get jobs?

    Reply
    • Hi Alannah,

      No, no photo on mine! There are some tasks that involve speaking etc – obviously you don’t have to do them but being a private person may make those less appealing!
