    1. Dear Santhosh

      There is no connection with tax information submission and bank transfer. Tax form submission is mandatory for all mturk users

      I have submitted his article to let the new mturk account holders know about the happy news that mturk started sending mail to complete verify process of bank transfer. If Santhosh got mail from mturk regarding the same, you can able to get bank trasnfer option for your account

  2. Hi. I had updated my bank details today, but I received a email from mturk saying "we do not recognize the bank account information you provided". I had given my SBI bank details, with right IFS code and 11 digit SBI account number. Do mturk accept SBI bank? If yes, what should I do next? Thank you!

    1. hi .. sbi is acceptable by mturk. They required any nationalised bank

      Try to repeat the submission if you have the option for the same. Or else send a mail to mturk by replying the problem in the mail that you got invitation for activating bank transfer option

    2. Option of adding bank account requireso any minimum balance before they give option ...It will be useful if when u disclose that when u got that option how much balance u had in your Mturk account

    3. Dear Sanjay
      Mturk didn't disclose the criteria on which they granding access to bank transfer. But when they selected particular account with this option, that particular account must have $3 to complete the process.

      In simple words even if your mturk balance is zero, then also you may get the invitation from them for completing bank verification process. But for doing the verification you have to make $3 and then you can complete the process.

      For me I got bank transfer option years back. Initial days I used to get cheqe payments and then they given bank transfer option.

  3. Hii can u plz say me on what basis they send the bank verfication process mail to usand my mturk id was accepted by mturk team before a month.and when will i get direct bank deposit option.

    1. Hi Santhosh

      Mturk sending invitation for bank transfer process on priority basis. Your account seems to be just 1 month old. SO you will have to wait for getting their invitation.

      One of my freind Mr. Prasoon got invitation recently and his account was activated during August 2016. So hopefully you also will get the invitation shortly.. Please update me once yours is done so that it will be useful for other readers as well

      There no such way to convert gift balance to Indian Rupees. You can only use the amount for purchasing some staff only from amazon.COM website

  5. No jothis there is a way some people convert there their gift balance in to indian rupess.

  6. Dear Jothis Rajan,

    I think this is random as I joined mturk in May, 2016 and I haven't got any option. So those who got it are lucky ones. It is not for everybody.

  11. Hi Sir,

    I want to change my contact details from USA to INDIA, I had mistakenly selected USA, Now my account is active but i cannot work, Since it asking the tax details for USA citizens. Please suggest me the best possible way to change the address.

    1. hi .. most probebly you got your account activated because you selected USA as your country. So if you change the same to INDIA, your account may suspended.

  12. hi Jothis,
    one month ago, i had got the same bank account invitation from mturk. And on the transfer page of mturk, they are asking to upload copy of pan card and date of birth.
    here my problem is, the address given in mturk and pan card are actually same but there some minor changes like mturk account is detailed then on pan, is there any problem on verification of pan card by this, also is there any problem on changing the address in mturk before uploading the pan card.
    Also is there any restriction on type of bank for mturk verification like nationalized bank or any other criteria.
    I am asking this because, i have accounts in both sbi and sbt. but the recent news says that they two are going to combine to one bank. so, i am confused on it. Also if it make a problem, then i have to take a new account on other bank within one week.
    for reference,
    Actually my account was approved after about one year after registration and got eligibility for bank account transfer after about 5 months working working.

    Thank you.

  13. Hi better you upload your pan card and then if there is any mismatch they will intimate you. Actually , There is an option to change your name and address on your amazon main site (not on mturk). During my initial stage I changed my payee name and address in that manner. But nowadays its not highly suggestible because mtrk seems to be much vigilant and lots of accounts got banned (they are doing the same to reduce fraudsters)

    Regarding the bank, you can give SBI. Hope you will get the activation soon. Do update me the progress here

  14. Hi,my mturk id has been suspended due to more rejections as per mturk rules.I was regularly earning about 200$ to 300$ permonth for about 6 months continuously, unfortunately due to my negligence /non understanding the tasks I took risk and submitted the tasks which in result my id was suspended . Is there any way to renew my id. Kindly advise me.

    1. Hi.. Really sorry to hear that.. The reason for your account suspension is already reflect in your comment. As per my information there is no option to get an account renewed

      Still try to send a mail to mturk.

      This should be a lesson for other users as well. Do your work after reading the job description clearly.

  15. Hi I am Karthik from chennai, Tamilnadu, I have registered in mturk on 2013 but i got the accept invitation only on may 2016 and then i have started to work on mturk for the past 10 months and completed 6000 hits, last month i got the invitation for bank transfer option and they asked to upload a PAN card details and then they verified and said that the name in the PAN Card and name in the amazon account is not matching, kindly change your name in amazon account then i changed the name accordingly then its get accepted after that i added my HDFC account and get accepted, now i can able to transfer i earnings.

    1. Dear Karthik
