There 2 types of MTurk payments, base and volume bonus payments.
- Base Payments- All regular base payments for work performed in Mechanical Turk are paid after they have been quality controlled. Once the HIT has passed the quality control step a payment is instantly credited to your individual Amazon MTurk account (Amazon account information). CrowdSurf base rates vary and are determined on both the length and priority of the HIT. Tip: When you log in to your MTurk account search for the ‘High Priority’ HITs with the higher payouts.
- Volume Bonus- Volume bonuses for Transcription Tasks are paid on Monday, for work performed Monday – Through Sunday of the previous week (excluding holidays).
