What are the tasks and how do they work?

A task or job is simply a set of instructions that you follow and get paid for. For example, there may be a task to categorize online images or videos, etc.

Most tasks can be completed multiple/unlimited times, while others may be limited to a certain number of completes. A message will display on the screen to explain this.

Certain tasks will require you to train for the tasks before you can actually complete them.  This evaluates how well you perform in doing the tasks before you are allowed to proceed.

Pay attention to any instructions in the tasks or hints attached to questions you answer incorrectly -- these are critical to your success in completing the tasks.

Your accuracy and credits are displayed in the top pane of the task. Please familiarize yourself with the tasks page before you attempt any.

If you fall below the minimum accuracy threshold for a particular task, you may no longer be permitted to continue working on that particular task. Do not get discouraged as this is to be expected and does not reflect a bug. You are then welcome to participate in any of the other available tasks.

Should you experience any difficulties related to a specific task, please contact Figure Eight directly by clicking on Help -> File a Ticket at the top of the task in question. You should also visit their Support Center for any other issues.

The amount you can make is up to you. Each task can pay you between a few cents to several dollars per completion. The higher-paying tasks, of course, require more work on your part.

Once you have completed a task, you are promptly paid for that task and the funds are added to your ySense account balance. We show you a complete history of your tasks and earnings.

Most members should find tasks in their accounts, but some tasks may be demographically or geographically targeted.

Do NOT attempt to go into a task and just click through it to try and complete it. There are filters that will not only detect this but it can get your Tasks account suspended permanently. Once a Task account is suspended, we cannot re-enable it as this is out of our control. Tasks are to be taken seriously and anyone found abusing them may also have their ySense account deactivated.

For each $50 worth of tasks that you complete, you will earn a $5 Bonus. We also pay a 20% commission to sponsors on all tasks completed by their referrals.
