How to Install Amazon mTruk Scripts?
I do not think installing scripts is hard work. But even if you are a new Turker, then you would definitely like to read this article.
If you are using Google Chrome, then you first need to install Tampermonkey Scripts. You can do Keyword Search on Google and download extensions. Tampermonkey helps in organizing scripts based on the you use browser.
If you use Firefox browser, you have to install Greasemonkey. These software are embedded in your mTurk account. And to increase the efficiency you give all the information you need. They completely change your dashboard.
If you want more software go to Greasy Fork.

As I said earlier, we are going to talk about HIT Scrapper and PANDA crazy in Details.
HIT Scrapper is one of the most used scripts by mTurkers. Some of the most common utilities of HIT Scrappers are
1.HITs You want to work on regular basis.
2.It can scrape 8 to 10 pages.
3.If pages are hidden due to Blocks, more pages will be displayed.
4.Results per page are 100.
5.Masters and Non Masters are both Le Hits.
6.Choose HITs with the Minimum reward of $ .50.

The second most important script is PANDA Crazy.
PANDA link helps to snatch those HITs in front of other people. Use the refresh button, you can use the Add-ons for grabbing automatically refreshing and HITs.
PANDA helps to preview and accept Crazy HITs automatically in the queue. So you do not need to click the Approval button. It captures great HITs that you want to accomplish.
Normal link only allows acceptance of HIT and SKIP HIT functionality but allows PANDA Crazy HITs, Return HIT to be deposited. PANDA Crazy are very useful because HITs are going quickly.
You can Create Panda by downloading them from Greasy Fork, giving them names and scheduling the intervals for which you want to check and Auto Accept HITs.
First Milestone: 500 HITs per Week
Up to now you will give a clear picture about Amazon MTurk.
How does mTurk work? What do you have to do as a worker? How much effort do you have to make? e.t.c
But the challenge for the new mTurker is to achieve 500 HITs. Once you are done with your probation period, you must complete at least 500 HITs per week.
You need to raise your rewards. $ 0.01 is not enough to get you at least $ 0.05 or $ 0.1 per HIT. So I advise you to daily surveys. This is the best.
Maintaining Higher Approval Ratings
As a beginner, you want to maintain higher approval ratings. In this way you are going to get quality HITs. So to get better high paying tasks qualifying, do not make any mistake at the beginning.
Otherwise it will take thousand HITs to complete and even get back. You must ensure that your acceptance rating is 100% closer. There is no margin for errors.
Focus on what the requestors are asking.
Second Milestone: 1000 HITs per Week
To achieve the second milestone 1000 HITs. You can not reach 1000 HITs in a day unless you realize the importance of the scripts mentioned earlier in this article. You have to set a goal that you will earn $ 10 to $ 15 a week.
You have to start taking transcription HITs where you listen to a video or audio and write it in a word document.
Third Milestone: 5000 HITs per Week
The third milestone of 5000 HIT’s can not be achieved until qualifying for the master’s. Once you reach 5000 HITs you will be Making more than $ 250 per week.
But in a week you have to work hard to reach a milestone of 5,000 HITs. By the time you reach 5000 HITs, you have learned so many things about mTurker.
Here’s how you can get masters’ qualification. Amazon analyzes that all mTurk masters can become. This technique analyzes the worker’s performance and high performance workers.
After monitoring their performance overtime and excellence on the wide range of HITs, it gives the award to the worker with master’s qualification.
Requesters can make their calls, make tests and monitor their employees.
To obtain Masters, you must complete your HITs on time, maintain high approval ratings, and avoid blocks from requesters.
Some benefits of being a master worker are that you do not get any captchas and the availability of work increases all the time.
Connecting with the Requesters
Joining the requesters for a serious mTurker is very important. As a worker You need to determine which requester you want to work for and to avoid this.
For clarification on HIT instructions, you need to contact the requesters. You can also ask for bonus rewards. If there are broken HITs that you are unable to complete then you will have to reach the requesters with your worker ID. You can dispute rejection asking why I am rejected and ask for reimbursement for imposing qualifications
You can click on the name of the requesters and you can fill the comment box and hit submit. The response from the requester will come on your email.
You get paid via Amazon gift card or Bank transfer. You must have given SSN and address proof.
Once HITs are approved, it will go to “Pending Payment” and then to “Paid”.
You will see Funds on the dashboard balance. Balance should be transferred to Amazon Payment on your Amazon shopping account. It takes 24 hours to transfer.
Always transfer your money every week. If your account is terminated in an event, then your entire money will be lost. So it is strongly advised that you withdraw your money every week because you can not afford to take risks.
