VirtualBee is a company which specializes in outsourced data entry work by taking projects from their clients companies and distributing it amongst their online workforce, both domestically and internationally.
VirtualBee is the new name and face of KeyForCash, an online data entry company that was well established in the work at home community.
VirtualBee claims to be building on the solid foundation they established as KeyForCash, but with many improvements, including expanding their workforce to include international options.
According to their website, all you need to work for VirtualBee is a home computer, an internet connection, and basic typing skills. It is free to sign up at VirtualBee, and they claim to charge no fees, at any time.
If you wish to sign up as a member of VirtualBee’s online workforce, you must answer a few questions and take a short evaluation – an assessment of your abilities and skills, such as typing speed – and then you will be placed on a waiting list.
Members who have higher evaluation scores will be taken from the waiting list first and presented with projects. You will be given an image of the data that needs to be entered and you just type it in.
You are paid based on the quantity of work you complete, which means that the amount you earn is tied to your speed and accuracy. However, there are different rates of pay at different times for projects, so you should be aware of that.
Is It Legit?
Anyone searching for an online work opportunity should ask themselves if the program or employer they are looking at is safe, or even real – there are far too many scams and unethical businesses online today.
But VirtualBee is a long established online data entry company that claims to be both risk and commitment free. You never have to pay them a dime, and you are completely in control of how much and how often you work.
In order to sign up at VirtualBee, you must be eighteen years of age or older, and live within the continental United States to take part in their domestic program, otherwise you may qualify for their international program.
Customer Responses, Reviews, or Complaints
I have worked for Key for Cash, Virtualbee for about 6 years. Never had a problem. When they clear my account on Thursday, it takes about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks. If it is a month, then you need to get hold of them.
Pro's: Easy peazy work. Just log into the site and start typing the images on the screen according to the directions (for example, keying "numeric" data follows different rules than keying "dollars and cents" data). Work when you want, as much or as little as you want. Everytime you accrue $30 in your account, you get paid. It's easy to get involved, just sign up, take the test (as many times as you want) and once you get a good score (as close to 100% as possible), wait to be contacted.
Con's: You will never make a living doing this stuff. It's supplemental income at best. You can expect to make a few dollars per hour if you work non-stop. There are also times when there's no work available, usually in the afternoon hours and on the weekend, when more people are awake and using the system. Mornings to early afternoons on the weekdays are the best times to find work. Also, it took about 8 months for me to get OK'ed to start working, even though I had a 100% score on the tests. Competition for this stuff is fierce.
