    ... Not bad, after a month or so of "casual" turking (i spend there 2-3 hours a day, and honestly i have quite a lot of fun doing that. Turking is damn addictive). Problem is, don't know how to "monetize" them as a european turker. I asked on Reddit but i received mostly condradicting (and a little bit rude) informations..So, which is the best way? PSN? Amazon gift cards? Any serious and useful help would be greatly appreciated...

    You have to sell your gift card money on places like https://www.reddit.com/r/giftcardexchange/ or some :emoji_poop: like that. You will want to ask around from people that actually do that because basically all of us here just move :emoji_poop: to our bank account.

    @leafs4_cup might do the gift card thing? He is Canadian but I can't remember if he has a US account or not.

    Yeah as far as I know the most popular method is to just eat the 15% loss & sell the credit on purse.io by buying an item off someone elses wishlist & then getting BTC in return. It sucks because you lose a huge chunk of the overall value but its the ONLY way for non-US account holders to get cash (outside of a few legacy Indian accounts I believe). India is the only non-US country to ever get bank withdrawals and IIRC even that has been discontinued (could be wrong here, I truthfully am not up to date on this info) but I do know anyone not from the US is definitely converting through some third party service.

    If you were canadian you could do the cross-border pickup of goods or shipping but from a European country the credit ONLY applies to your US amazon.com account so shipping it is probably more expensive than just eating the loss on purse.io

    I really can't understand why they won't allow to transfer the earnings to a non US Amazon account. I mean, 300 dollars are not that much, but losing a 10/15% is still annoying. It's quite a dumb system, i say...

    Amazon is pretty well known for squaring off w/ other countries over tax laws & such.

    Generally it has nothing to do w/ MTurk, its just a larger umbrella policy from Amazon that prevents them from offering payment account functions to other areas. Even some US states get boned by not being able to work on certain Amazon related HITs lol.

    Sorry to revive this old thread, but I have to ask... Has anyone ever used sites like Gameflip to sell gift cards? I can't use https://www.reddit.com/r/giftcardexchange/ because I'm not really active on Reddit, and am looking for an alternative where I don't have to fiddle with bitcoin... :p
