It is important to understand how Picoworkers
operates. Understanding the system will make you a better Worker and a
What is Picoworkers?
Picoworkers is an online marketplace that
connects Freelancers around the world with customers. Customers who need
other people to help them to support their online/offline business come to
Picoworkers. Here they can hire Workers for easy and quick jobs (Small Jobs)
where Workers become your Virtual Assistants. Featuring two different types
of Jobs makes Picoworkers suitable for those who have less time and prefer
to do quick tasks and also for those who posses certain skills and prefer
to work longer hours to earn more.
Who are Employers?
Employers are people who need help getting tasks done. Employers post new
Jobs for Workers to complete. Employers review
submitted tasks and pay Workers for their help.
Who are Workers?
Workers are people who enjoy helping others. Workers accept jobs they
like and deliver results, then get paid.
How many accounts can I have?
Each person can only create one account. A user can be both, a Worker and an
Employer at the same time.
What jobs can a Worker accept?
Workers should only accept jobs they are capable of finishing. Accepting
a job and submitting a false or incomplete proof will raise a red flag. In most cases
three (3) red flags lead to account termination.
What is Profile page?
Each user gets a Profile page which can be personalized to reflect user's
experiences, beliefs and expectations. Users can edit sections such as:
About me, Languages spoken, My Photo, Background image, etc. Profile page
also shows user information such as: Nickname, Country, Work
done, Money earned, Last login and others. Please visit your
Profile page to learn about features and update
information on it. Good Profile page will make you stand out of the crowd
and can get you hired faster.
What is Success Rate?
Workers must maintain a success rate of above 75%
at all times (Satisfied tasks). Too many Not-Satisfied tasks will lower
Worker's success rate. Low success rate prevents a Worker from performing
jobs for the next 30 days.
How can I offer a Small Job to Workers?
Go to My Jobs page (section Small Jobs), click on "Start a
new Job" and post your job. All Jobs submitted are reviewed for
approval before displayed to the Workers.
Can I cancel my job that is still pending
Should you want to Cancel a job before it is activated in the
system, simply click on the Cancel link in your My
Jobs page (section Small Jobs). Funds locked for that Job will be credited back to
Do Employers get charged for every task?
Employers pay only for tasks they are satisfied with. Picoworkers
does not charge any money of fees for tasks that did not meet requirements
set by Employers. Employers have a chance to rate every submitted task.
How do I rate tasks? (and auto-rating)
Go to "My Jobs" page and choose the Job you wish to review. Click
on the "Submitted tasks" link and a list of all submitted tasks will be
displayed in a single page. You do not have to individually open each task
to check the proof. With the Select All box, approving several tasks can be
done with just a single click. However, should you prefer to approve each
task one by one, you can always do so. A "Satisfied" rating automatically
transfers the fund you have set aside for a task to each individual Worker's
account. You would only be paying for tasks you rate "Satisfied". Should you
find a submitted proof unacceptable, click on the Task ID and decline such
task. A box will open. Enter a reason for declining the task and click
Submit. No tasks should remain
open for a long period of time. If you forget to rate your Workers' tasks,
they will automatically be closed by the system and will be rated
"Satisfied" after the Time-to-rate period.
Can I stop my Job once it is running?
Should you want to end your Job even before all available positions
have ran out, simply click on the Stop link in your Job page. Funds
for unused positions will be credited back to your account.
We accept jobs that help Employers promote their business (website,
apps,...) or help them do something they cannot do by themselves; where they

Search online, Blog about products, Place banners or links on their website,
Upload or Download videos or pictures, Subscribe to newsletter, Vote online, etc.

Scamming, spamming or misleading users
We believe Picoworkers should stay a clean place - We work hard to make
it reliable and useful to both, Employers and Workers. Therefore we do not
tolerate any illegal activities, scam, spam or trying to mislead other users
in order to gain advantage, get free work or ask others to perform actions
that are not legal. We monitor many things in the backend and as soon as we
notice strange behaviour, we put such accounts on hold and contact the
owner. In cases where we are 100% a user has tried to perform an illegal
activity, we will immediately terminate such account. Read
