Requester customers have asked to make purchasing Prepaid HITs for Mechanical Turk simpler. Requesters use Prepaid HITs to cover Worker payments and Mechanical Turk fees when HITs are approved or bonuses granted. Today, we’re pleased to announce improvements to the way Requesters purchase Prepaid HITs.
With these improvements, Requesters can now complete their purchase in as few as three clicks, all without leaving the Mechanical Turk site. Now, Prepaid HITs can be purchased with a credit or debit card directly within Mechanical Turk.
This new functionality is available for Requesters from the “My Account” page. After selecting a purchase amount, customers proceed to the Purchase Prepaid HITs page. Here, customers can select or add a payment method directly. After confirming the purchase, the transaction is complete.
We expect these improvements will make it even easier for Requesters to create even more HITs for Workers in the Mechanical Turk marketplace. For any questions about the new Prepaid HITs purchasing experience, please contact us.
