Thread: Alternate way to cashout for international turkers

    Alternate way to cashout for international turkers

    While researching online, I have come across couple of interesting website. Purse.io and Brawker allows you to covert your amazon gift balance into bitcoin. How it works is basically you purchase products for a person who wants to purchase something from amazon but only has bitcoins, so he/she will exchange their bitcoins with you if you agree to purchase the products on their behalf and ship it to their address. The bitcoin trading rate differs in each order so it's important to make sure you are making the trade with the latest exchange rates. Once you have the bitcoins, you can either cash them out or purchase anything else from the internet.

    I have placed two orders through purse.io and both went through without any issues. I am yet to use Grawker but it seems to be more popular of the two so I think it's safe to use as well. Let me know if you guys have any doubts/questions.

    This seems like an interesting way to payout. I expect in the future that more and more places will accept bitcoins, but until then this is a good idea, I think.

    I have used purse.io - it works just fine. Basically, you purchase someone else's wishlist on Amazon and have the products delivered directly to them. Once they receive the product, they release the BTC which are being held in escrow. I've done 12 transactions - no issues.

    is there ANY hope at all that mturk will start letting Canadians transfer their earnings to their bank account? it's getting so disheartening and I'm losing my motivation

    apparently mturk has been sending out acceptance emails over the past few days to people outside of the U.S. - I don't know what's going on, but I really hope that they are also going to offer alternate payment methods to Canadians, like bank transfers.

    Agreed, that would be awesome! I doubt it though.
