Why don't you just work there?
I know the least fiverr pays is $5 . Did you charge $5 for am hour?
if you know how difficult it is to get jobs there, especially as a Nigerian.

E no easy. I'm using qa to compliment.

Pheeeeew... So, after working on this call. I got a poor rating because I thought date of birth and full names are security questions. Also learnt a new term "A. N. Z cre.. dit card".

Well, I will keep working. I intend getting my paypal this week, I will then open a fresh account for better jobs. For now.. Let me keep learning.

Do all very long calls have auto scripts?
Some have absolutely no auto script like for the Aussies

Just listen to one to five timestamps to note the different speakers. Once you note the two people speaking, listen to their conversation. From their conversation you can decipher who is the rep and the customer. And for the 1 and 2 ratings, don't worry, we all started out like that. You'll get the hang of it. I just started last week Thursday and I am on constant 4 and 5 ratings now.
Thanks. Quite encouraging.

Remember not to post ANY SCREENSHOTS OF THE PLATFORM HERE, they explicitly reminded everyone of that today in Slack and I'm guessing it could be related to our activities here. The internet is not a closed house, anyone anywhere can see what we post.

Yeah. I experienced that once or twice. Now, I check my time steady. If I'm proofreading and I see the time is almost up, I just submit the call. Can't come and suffer for another person to enjoy. undecided
Though, I've picked some calls that had previously been worked on and I only had to do minor corrections and submit... tongue
I've also picked a call I was working on, and time expired on me. I simply rush to the queue, refresh, pick that same call.and continue from where I stopped... cool
Wow so you can rush back to pick the call. That's good.
Thanks so much. You guys rock! See you at the top.

Just did a 2min call from Ijendu Uba. Though, be had foreign accent, the 5 rating was instant. grin
Not celebrating yet though. I've learnt not to celebrate my ratings till late Sunday. So as to avoid unnecessary heartbreak.

when you are up for the test again, just keep reloading the page until you get "test file 6". you can check page 1 or 2,? for the verbatim transcript and just paste it there.

please I have 1 USD in my PayPal account. I tried to withdraw to my linked UBA Africard but it gave me this error " something is not right at the moment. try again later"
who has experienced this before please?
BTW, I thought this guys have the correct transcriptions to those calls nd they only crosscheck before they give points..but laslas na idea them dey use grin d call I did yesternight ehn..anything I can't hear I just fill in the gap to rhyme with their discussion and while I couldn't drop was I had exhausted my release..so I managed to avoid inverted speakers and submitted. It was a an 8 min call but to my surprise I saw a 5 ratingshocked.
i think i'm liking this Uk calls.lol
