Thread: New signup to mTurk as both worker and requester - some questions

    New signup to mTurk as both worker and requester - some questions

    Hello all, I recently signed up to mTurk as both worker and requester. My question is:

    1. How long does approval usually take for a requester account? Unlike the worker account, I don't see an approval pending page on my requester dashboard. I seem to be able to access everything. If it helps, I've previously sold items on Amazon before and have built up a respectable credit history. My account also has a lengthy purchase history from Amazon spanning more than a decade.

    2. I think my personal name is being displayed on my requester account. Is there a way to change it to the name of my business?

    I didn't know there even was a delay... when I signed up, I could post HITs instantly. How do you know you're waiting for approval?

    2. I think my personal name is being displayed on my requester account. Is there a way to change it to the name of my business?
    Change your name here: https://requester.mturk.com/account . It's fine to change it to your business name. Note that it will also change it on Amazon.com. If you want to keep your name on your Amazon account, create a new account to use on mTurk and sign up with your business name. That's totally fine by Amazon.
    It's all good.
