Often you would have come across advertisements stating you can earn 100’s of dollars in your spare time but the reality is different.

Requirements For a Captcha Typing Job
You need have a desktop or laptop with high speed internet connection. If your typing speed is good it will be more helpful to solve more captchas but it’s not a requirement it’s an added advantage. You need to read and type English.
How Much Can We Earn From Captcha Typing?
To be honest the answer for the above question is “Very Little”, Let me share my own experience… My friend is running a data entry company in which I manage few projects and in the downtime or idle hours I utilize few employees in captcha typing you know what, they are my potential employees in quality and as well as quantity they type 40 to 50 words per minute so I tried this for many days.
When I calculate the earnings I am really disappointed… The result is utilizing one man power for 8 hours they earned me between $1 to $2 only this is not worth. It won’t cover the production cost.
Many companies pay in between $0.20 to $1.50 per 1000 captcha, it’s really really rare to see the amount as $1 for 1000 captcha most of the time it will be around $0.30 to $0.70 for 1000 captcha’s.
Spending 8 hours and earning around $1 to $2 oops i am really frustrated. Its not worth the effort not even covering the electricity charges.
Downtime – For Loading It Takes Time
After keying every captcha you need to wait for the next one to be loaded which takes 10 to 20 seconds sometimes even more. We need to keep looking at the computer. In order to avoid the slow loading time these captcha companies advice us to keep the high speed internet connection but my questions is, “Is it worth the time, effort and investment?”, my answer is NOOOOO.
If you enter or capture many captcha’s incorrectly your account will be suspended, it depends on the quality measures of the companies and it vary from company to company. Already we are earning very very little in case our account is suspended all the efforts goes on vain.
There are few genuine captcha typing sites but Instead of wasting your time and effort in captcha typing you can utilize your time in other good programs and build your online career and be your own boss.
