If you’re going to do work from home jobs and do not have any skill, then transcription is for you.
But many people find transcription difficult because they don’t have any experience, and they need to practice first before they do the job itself.
And here comes Scribie, especially for the beginners to practice, to have some experience and start earning.

Yes, It is legit, and people from around the world are making money from it.
is Scribie good for making money as full time?
Scribie is suitable for beginners only because the pay is not too good.
How much Scribie pay for an audio hour?
Scribie pay is from $5 to $10 per audio hour. It means that if you are taking 3 hrs for one-hour audio, then you can earn approx $25 in a day and $25×30= $750 in a month.
You can see from the above calculation that the pay is not good but if you are living in a developing or underdeveloped country, then $750 in a month is not bad.

Scribie Review on Glassdoor
Glassdoor has given a rating of 2 out of 5 to Scribie.
The reason for the low rating is low pay of Scribie, and you know that the site will be useful only if every user is happy from the site.
Usually, due to low pay freelancers working on Scribie want to switch the platform this is why I recommended Scribie only for beginners.
