It wont work. Open a fresh one following the instructions in that link. Make sure you clear your browser history if you have already tried accessing the old account on your device before opening the new one.

The naija PP wont work because you can't make withdrawals with it. We need a PP account that can receive payments to reap the fruits of our labour

I couldn't withdraw to my Access visa card when it was time to cash out. But I had no issues when I got the prepaid card. You can try yours and share your experience here.

There are no advantages or disadvantages per se. Just that the exchange rate at which some banks will sell to you will make you rethink who you are working for in the first place.

But for the prepaid card, the exchange rate is superb and you don't risk having to sell your funds to exchangers. The rate for the prepaid card is always better than selling to the exchangers and it's safer.

As a Nigerian u can't withdraw with ur Nigerian PayPal account that's why u need to create either a Lesotho, UAE or South Africa PayPal account, so u can withdraw ur funds here in Nigeria without any hassle...

Whichever one u prefer to open is fine, just don't open a Nigerian one. Me sha, I make use of a Lesotho PayPal account...
Would you require a VPN for those?

I took the test twice but failed. Could, the failure be as a result of me using phone? I want a successful mentor to run along with, please. Perhaps, someone that can give me support.

Check page 2 for a surefire way to get onboard. A lot of us failed the test on the first try. We are here to mentor and support one another.
For the test, it had nothing to do with your phone. Could have been anything anywhere between punctuation and misheard words
Re: Self Employment Opportunity: Transcribing For A Living In Nigeria by Richardlove(m): 7:47am On Jun 28
Thanks for the reply but, i.have used my both emails. Apart from opening another email is there another way?

There is no other way. You have to get through the tests first. The tests are the easiest part and we have the transcripts for all the test. Just open one last email and check page 2. You can't fail the test with the steps there. It takes only 2 mins to get another email address

Thank you for bringing back this thread. I have searched regolously for it. The fact is the transcription work is not easy, but with patients and constant practice, we can become better in transcribing, infact I am not performing well at all, but I just need to speak to myself, to practice and relax my nerve when listening before typing, then also the time allotted for each work is an issue, but even if the time end, the work is still there we can still revisit it again, but we must make sure we copy what we transcribed and where we stopped, so we can continue from there. Just a little on my take. Thanks too. I also want to suggest we open a WhatsApp group for this, in case this page is closed, we can share ideas always.
Re: Self Employment Opportunity: Transcribing For A Living In Nigeria by kennybelle: 2:39pm On Jun 28
good afternoon people. I passed the test. still having challenges understanding the site though. pls can i use my normal bank account for the registration proper, I think I'll be more comfortable with that
Re: Self Employment Opportunity: Transcribing For A Living In Nigeria by somehow: 3:38pm On Jun 28
I have done their tests, just waiting for result.

The one that is giving me hardtime is transcribeme.

The 3rd test audio given to me to do has been hell. I am hoping they will change it. been 2 days since I attempted it.

If you've applied before and you failed the transcription test, to apply again u need to use a new email. Once u apply again and u are directed to where u will take the test, simply refresh ur browser continuously till u see clip 6 (the test audio). Then copy and paste the quoted text above and submit.



N.B: Passing the transcription test is the easiest part
Which kind wahala be this??I was refreshing and refreshing and I didn't see any clip 6. Seems they have removed the clip
