Is ClickWorker a Scam or Legit? (What You Can Expect)

ClickWorker Rating

ClickWorker has several ways to earn. But it also has its downsides - for example, the slow support and at times not very useful support is a big minus.

ClickWorker is a survey site/online reward portal that promises to pay you for completing what they call micro tasks.

Now the question is, is ClickWorker a scam? Or is it legit?

Let me just tell you right away that yes, ClickWorker is legit. But this does not necessarily mean it will be worth your time.

This ClickWorker review will cover everything about the site and what you can really expect if you become a member so you can easily see if it is the right option for you or if you should go for alternatives instead.

Now let’s get started.

What is ClickWorker and what does it offer?

ClickWorker isn’t a straightforward survey site. That means it’s not just about surveys. It basically combines the opportunities that survey sites offer and reward opportunities like what ySense offers.

On ClickWorker, you can actually register as a “worker” or as an “employer”. But in this review, we will tackle the “worker” side since it is where you will be able to earn money.

Now let’s talk about how you will be able to earn with ClickWorker, because in my opinion, this will be the best way for you to understand what they offer and if it will be worth it for you or not.

Option 1 – Paid Surveys

As mentioned above, one way for you to earn on ClickWorker is through paid surveys. This works like how it normally does on survey sites.

You get an offer to answer a survey. Once you complete the survey, you receive the reward.

Take note though, you will have to answer a screening test before you can proceed with the actual survey.

They do this because they are actually targeting a specific demographic for the surveys they offer. The screening test will determine if you belong to the target demographic.

This mechanic will save you time because you won’t have to answer a survey and then later find out that you weren’t qualified and in turn, won’t receive a reward.

You can find the survey offers once you log in to the member dashboard. But keep in mind, the survey offers will be listed together with the other tasks on the site.

clickworker surveys examples
You can see the available surveys after you login.

It’s not like in most survey sites where you get an exclusive section just for paid surveys. And don’t be alarmed if you can’t see any paid survey offers the first time you will log in. I’ll explain later why.

The image above shows a couple of survey offers inside the dashboard. But unlike most other reviews here on, you can see a lot of the info is blocked out.

That is because ClickWorker does not allow any info about the task names or rewards to be shown to non-members.

So after I first posted them to give you an inside look, I was told I had to remove them. In my opinion, a bit strange but that is their rules.

So to be able to see the actual rewards and examples of surveys and tasks, you would have to become a member. After reading this review, you will find out if that will even be worth it.

Option 2 – Micro Tasks

Now, this is the bread and butter of ClickWorker.

Once you log in to the dashboard, you will quickly see all the available tasks you can take.

You do have to complete your profile before you will be offered tasks. So don’t be alarmed the first time you log in and don’t see available micro tasks.

Once you complete your profile, you will then see all the available micro tasks you can do.

The tasks available will depend on the data you provided in your profile. The logic is, if you set your profile to where you know a lot about a specific field, most of the micro tasks offered to you will be those related to that specific field you chose.

clickworker job categories examples
You can get access to quite a few different types of tasks.

Again I cannot show you a photo of actual tasks as ClickWorker does not allow this according to their terms. But the image above shows a few examples of the types of tasks you can find once you are inside.

Each micro task offer will tell you what you can earn for completing it. In my opinion, this is a good bit of information to help you strategize how best to spend your time.

It will also tell you when the task will be paid.

Once you click the start button, it will redirect you to the job order. You will see all the requirements you need to complete and the steps you need to take in order to claim the reward that was offered.

You have to be very particular about the instructions provided because one missed step will not allow you to complete the task. So, this also about being able to follow the instructions properly.

As to how many micro tasks will be available for you to do every day, that will actually depend on your profile. But there is a way for you to expand your qualifications though.

There is a section on their dashboard called Assessments where you can take some sort of test that will allow you to be qualified for additional jobs.

There are two types of assessments available for you: the base and project specific assessments.

The base assessment will check your basic qualifications for various current and future jobs, while the project-specific assessments will check if you meet the special prerequisites for specific jobs that are currently available.

You will need to complete the tests in order to get access to those jobs. Also, sometimes there are assessments that you can take that are repeatable.

That means, even if you failed it the first time, you can still retake it so you can improve your rating on that specific assessment.

So make sure to check the Assessments section from time to time to see if there are any available tests you can take to expand your job qualifications.

Overall, you can find quite a lot of micro tasks on ClickWorker and some of them are quite interesting/different as well compared to what you can find on most other similar sites.

Option 3 – Offers and Promotions

Their partners will sometimes post offers and promotions you can complete in order to receive more rewards.

You will see the available offers on the dashboard as well. Just click the Offers and Promotions tab beside the All Jobs tab.

They did place a disclaimer that even though they check their partner offers carefully, they will still not be held liable for the service offerings provided.

As to what those offers are, unfortunately, I couldn’t find any more information about it on their website and I do not really have any available in my area.

I guess it will really depend on which partner posted the offer but I think it will be similar to paid offer walls on other sites which means you can sometimes find some good deals here if you just make sure to read the conditions for the offers.

How do you get paid?

First things first. The currency ClickWorker uses is the Euro. So everything you will earn on this website will be in Euro – and that will be the case even if you sign up from a country that does not use Euro.

As to whether or not that is a good thing, I will leave it for you to decide.

Payment will be done via PayPal, SEPA, or Transferwise. But not all payment options are available in all countires, in my experience. But PayPal should at least be available in all countries.

In my opinion, this is actually a good option because PayPal is a more convenient way for you to collect your earnings. Plus, it is the most used payment method in the world today.

As to how much money is needed before you can withdraw your earnings, you have to reach the minimum requirement of $10. That would be around €9 give or take.

Although it isn’t one of the fastest paying survey sites, the payment threshold is actually pretty decent in my opinion.

How much money can you make?

On their website, they tell you can earn well over $10 an hour. But they do backtrack and tell you that on average, you will most likely earn an average of $9 an hour.

Well, that can certainly be possible. That of course, will really depend on how many paid surveys, micro tasks and partner offers you qualify for.

It will also depend on how quickly you can finish a job offer. There will be times where you will get to earn more because there are more jobs available for you (assuming that you complete them).

Plus, I also noticed they sometimes offer general micro tasks like referring a friend. This can be a good way for you to earn additional income.

Just DON’T go thinking that you can go ahead and quit your job and start working full time on this website thinking the income you can earn will somehow be on par with your job.

That just won’t be the case. That’s because the rewards offered for tasks will not be consistent. Some rewards will offer €5, while some offer as low as €0.17. So, it’s definitely a case to case basis.

Plus, there is feedback from members that job opportunities will be limited depending on your location. So even though the hourly rate might sounds decent, you will not be able to just decide how mcuh you want to work yourself – overall, the earning potential is not that great, in my opinion, so you need to do it with the right expectations.

But since it has a decent payment threshold of $10, you will be able to earn a bit of pocket money (so to speak) decently.

Can you use it on mobile?

They have actually ensured ClickWorker is available for mobile use because the mobile app is available for download on both Android and iOS devices.

clickworker mobile app
The ClickWorker app is available for both iOS and Android users.

So that’s good news for you if you love to work on these things on your mobile device. This also allows you to be an efficient earner in their site once you install the app.

That’s because you can work on tasks even when you are not at home. Just log in to the app and you can start doing the tasks you can do on your mobile device of course.

One remarkable thing about how their app works is you can actually work offline. As long as the task allows this, you can start working on it even if you don’t have an internet connection on your mobile device.

You can just submit it once you are connected to the internet again. I can think of one good way that this feature can come in handy.

Say for example a task involves taking videos. Seeing as videos will really eat up a lot of your data cap if you try to upload it via a data connection on your mobile device, you can just opt to work on it offline, and then upload it when you get home and your mobile device is connected to your wifi network.

That way, you can save your data usage and in turn, lessen your mobile data bill. It’s a pretty cool feature in my opinion.

Who can join ClickWorker?

Another good thing about ClickWorker is almost anyone can join the website as a worker, and for free, I might add.

You just have to be at least 18 years old in order to sign up. It is also available in a lot of countries, which is good in my opinion. That means they have extensive reach.

You do have to make sure you have a verified PayPal account so you can receive your earnings.

clickworker registration
Registration is free of charge and all countries can join.

The registration process is also pretty simple. You just need to fill up a few details and you are good to go. As soon as you click the verification link that you will receive via email, you can then log in to the website.

I have to remind you though, you have to complete your profile before you can start receiving job offers. And unlike most survey sites, you will not be rewarded for completing your profile.

But it only takes a few minutes to fill out, so you will quickly be able to see the tasks.

Can you get support?

ClickWorker also ensures you can get support just in case you encounter any issue with your account or your use of their website.

clickworker contact form
You can use the contact form if you encounter issues with your account.

You can use the contact form provided if you have any questions you want to ask. The good thing about their contact form is you can opt to send a copy of the message you will be sending to them to your own email as well.

That way, you can actually track down your correspondence with them.

But aside from that, they also have their FAQs section, which is pretty extensive. And if you can’t find the answers you are looking for, you can also sign up to their forums and see if you can find the answers you are looking for.

Plus, the forums will allow you to interact with other members of the site as well.

I have been in contact with their support a few times myself. I must say that it is not the fastest and the answers could be a lot better, in my opinion.

But I have received answers every time I have been in contact with them. Sometimes it might just take a bit of patience before they get back to you and their support definitely could be improved and the way I have experienced their support is a big minus as they have not seemed very helful.

Final Verdict

ClickWorker is a legit website that pays you for completing the tasks they offer. The tasks involved will vary depending on your profile.

To help you make a decision on whether this site is for you or not, let’s finish this review by summing up the pros and cons.



  • Decent payment threshold
  • Payment via PayPal is available
  • A mobile app is available


  • Job offers will be limited depending on your location
  • Inconsistent reward rate for tasks
  • A bit hard to qualify for more jobs
  • Sometimes support can be a bit slow and not very helpful

As you can see, ClickWorker does offer a decent earning potential. But it does depend on where your location is.

I like it has a mobile app you can use so you can earn on the go. But if you are somehow located in a region where the job offers aren’t really great, the potential income you will earn will be reduced significantly.

This can be a decent secondary site to earn a bit of income though.

But if you aren’t into doing different types of tasks in order to earn an income, I recommend you check out the top survey sites in your country.

You will find plenty of good choices if you just want to answer surveys in order to earn a bit of money.

  1. Hi there. Im live here in the Philippines. Can you recommend a site similar to this that I can use better in my location. Any suggest? Thanks

  2. Dear Mikael,

    I am living in Thailand and I would like to find a survey website.
    I registered at one, but the surveys are in Thai, and I don’t speak Thai…
    Can you suggest websites where the surveys are in English, not depending on the residence?
    Thank you!

    • You can find a list of the best survey sites in Thailand here.

      Some of them will have surveys in English once in a while. But many surveys will be in the language of the country you live in simply because that makes it more likely for the companies there to get people to answer.

      But one thing you can do is to use a free browser extension that automatically translates the surveys. It won’t be a perfect translation but it should be enough for you to be able to understand the questions.

      Hope this helps.

    • you mean you posted a 2nd comment here on my website? There are two comments from you in the section below. When you post a comment here, they are, however, not published right away. I first have to approve them as otherwise some people, unfortunately, will use the comment section for spam. But I have approved all your comments and have replied to them.

      Hope this explains it.

  3. I did the same job 3X because it shows on my screen that my data was 100% loaded, then when I check my balance that is supposed to be 13.50 Euros my balance keep showing 0,00 and on their dashboard shows that my task is incomplete. The same when I took the 1st test with them to see if I was able to work for them and on each answer that I gave it corrects me showing what I’ve answered and what would be the correct answer if I did a mistake. Now the funny part is that 2 of questions I answered in a way and it showed me that I answered in a different way…. I wrote them an email explaining and up to now I have no response.

    I would love if someone who knows what else should I do…. like, don’t take any new job if I am not sure if I will be paid

    • I would definitely not take any more jobs until I had a clarification for this if I were you. Their support can be quite slow, in my experience but hopefully, they will get back to you soon. But do not spend any more time on it until you do as you then risk wasting your time.

      Until then there are plenty of other sites you can join and earn on as alternatives. What country do you live in? Then I will be happy to give a few suggestions for great alternatives.

      Also, feel free to keep me updated about how it goes if you hear back from their support.

      • Mikael,

        Thank you for your advice and your time.

        I am in Brazil.

        By the way, I did 2 videos showing that I was posting a 2nd time then I did another recording and on the video I am saying that it was a 3rd time.

        I reduced the size of the video and I´ve sent to the person that I just received an email saying that I was supposed to wait until the system says thank you or something like this…. Yes, I´ve waited but it is not my fault if their system has a problem.

        I have repeted the same job 3X but I just want to be paid for the job and my ballance is on 0,00 it took me a lot of time…. ove 3 hours…. I had to sort out a lot of photos that they asked for over 5 years of photos and this is not easy to go in to your files and sort photos that there are no participants and so on…. I mean it takes time.

  4. Thanks for the reply Mikael,
    I am not trying to show that I live in USA. I was there for 12 years and now recently I came back to Nepal and living my life here.
    I have a verified PayPal I’d to withdraw funds from clickworker. Which I made when I was in USA. Now in Nepal PayPal doesn’t supports the payment gateway.

    Mikael, I am just trying to know about clickworker payment details.
    As you can see the payment details in clickworker account, you will find a box asking tax I’d of a PayPal account, which I don’t have. But My PayPal account is verified.I can send and receive money anywhere globally. but I am still confused if I could receive my payments from click worker or not? Because I do not have tax I’d number on my PayPal account.
    Can you please explain me so that I can work well with clickworker?
    Waiting for the positive reply. Thank You!

    Best Regards,

    • I have not been in that situation myself so I cannot say exactly how ClickWorker works in a situation like that. I would suggest you to contact their support so you are sure what to do.

      And feel free to keep me updated about how it goes.

  5. Hi there, I am from Nepal . Let me tell you,I was in USA for 10 years I do have social security number but do not have tax I’d number. I have already created an account on clickworker and transferred some jobs as well. You know, I am confused whether I should keep transferring jobs or not because I am afraid of the payment it’s because I don’t have tax I’d no. Do you think does it really matters to receive payments without tax I’d?
    Any positive feedback i will appreciate. Thank you.

    Best Regards,

    • I, unfortunately, do not know Bijay.

      I know most sites are very strict about where you come from so if you try to make it look you are from the US but do not live there, it can be a problem. But when it comes to tax, I do not know as tax rules are very different from country to country.
