OneSpace Review, Product Overview

In this review, I will be reviewing the company OneSpace, also formerly known as Crowdsource. If you’re looking to make money online, with no set schedules, and work when you want, this company, OneSpace is a great place to earn money from working at home.

This company deploys a refreshing and innovative way to make money online by using crowdsourcing with a cloud-based workforce platform. From my own personal experience, I have done crowdsourcing for companies like Amazon and others, this one by far is hands down more enjoyable. The tasks at OneSpace are just less tedious than most, which is never a bad thing.

If you don’t know or understand what crowdsourcing is let me explain, crowdsourcing is the process of performing work online.  The idea is to take work and outsource it to a crowd of workers. Its usually involves making a large task into micro-task or smaller task by dividing it up among many people to get a faster, cheaper, and more reliable result.  The micro-tasks or small tasks that are performed online ranging from adding captions to images to freelance writing.

Course Tests

So to get started at OneSpace, you first must sign up and take a series of course tests to qualify to do certain jobs.

  • Audio Transcription
  • Copy Writer – Currently no longer offered.
  • Junior Copy Writer – Currently no longer offered.
  • Quality Assurance Specialist
  • Senior Assurance Specialist
  • Copy Editor – Currently no longer offered.
  • Writer II

Task By Types

Then once you pass the course test, different available Task by Types are seen to start working on like:

  • Survey
  • Transcription
  • Writing
  • Search Keyword Tasks
  • Find Image
  • Keywords on Google
  • Keywords on Google.co.uk
  • Keywords on Bing
  • many more, they are adding more sometimes

A couple of thoughts on the test. You may take a test up to 3 times, if you don’t pass the test, then you may no longer take that test anymore, and you are then unable to do that job. Passing test, grants you access to more jobs and higher pay because you’re usually doing a significantly harder job, like a Copy Writer job. The tests are timed, with usually a half hour to complete them. Don’t feel bad if you don’t pass the test the first time; they are HARD! Especially the CopyWriter job. With a little bit of luck, you can pass after doing it a couple of times, or if your an expert or have a degree in that field.

The Good & The Bad

The Good:love-valentines-day-pose-heart-funny-frog-animal-1

The thing I love about OneSpace, is there are many things to love about this company.

  • First and Foremost is OneSpace pays you in a day or two automatically, thru PayPal. No having to request payment or anything for that matter, just done automatically. So Refreshing, every company should do this.
  • Secondly, the work they have you do. It’s not as drudgery as other online jobs I’ve done for some reason, but it still works.
  • Thirdly, you do good work; then you are compensated for it by their Proficiency Leveling Program. Which has four levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced, and expert. By successfully completing job task you advance.
  • Fourth, some of the jobs are just easy! Like keywords on Google, it’s my favorite, maybe because it’s so easy. Yeah, it’s because it’s so easy.
  • Fifth, just the way everything is laid out and presented. With clear, precise instructions. You can tell there are people, a team, and a company that cares!!!
  • Sixth, competitive pay for all approved work.
  • Seventh, no interview or fees for joining.
  • Eighth, the opportunity to earn during the entire day, work on jobs at your convenience.

The Bad:despair-alone-being-alone-archetype-archetypes

  • Limited jobs, jobs are not always available to do, under the Find Work tab at OneSpace, all the time. So one must come back routinely and check for currently available jobs. (See Special Hint for finding available  jobs at the bottom of this article)
  • Hard Test. Some of the course test you need to be an expert or at least a very proficient in that field because if you don’t have the skills, you will never pass. There that hard!
  • All worked goes thru an approval system before being paid. (can’t really blame them)

OneSpace Pay

My Final Opinion of OneSpace

OneSpace is a great company to work for doing easy crowdsourcing jobs to technical writing assignments. It’s that simple. I can Highly Recommend this for earning extra income, so this is a winner in my book. I believe OneSpace might be just what you are looking for.

Special Hints For Finding Available Jobs At OneSpace

As promised above I would reveal a little secret hack for finding and getting available jobs on OneSpace. The best time to find available jobs is clicking the Find Work tab, once you logged into OneSpace or hitting the refresh button (F5) at the top of the hour, (say like 12:00, or 1:00 or 2:00), and doing that repeatedly for at least a minute or until a job comes up. This is usually when they release their jobs. I have found too, that if you hit Find Work at the bottom of the hour (say like 12:30, or 1:30, or 2:30), they also less frequently release during these times, but they do do it during these times also.

Another hint is to look at odd hours of the night when fewer people are looking. You can get more jobs at this time. During the day it is more competitive and harder to find available work.

If you want a proven and tested way of earning money online, I would recommend you check out My Personal #1 Recommended way to make money online. This would be you owning and building your own business online. Why not take the leap to affiliate marketing and work for your self?

  1. Hey interesting article, and it might be something i use in the future. Is it 100% free to use, or are there premium features we have to pay for to unlock?

    • Hey Cheang, It’s completely free, no need to pay for anything at OneSpace, they pay you for work completed. The only thing that can be unlocked is taking test to earn more opportunities (jobs) and possible higher pay with those jobs. Hope that clears things up for you. Take care.

  2. This sounds very intriguing. This has definitely caught my attention. How much can one earn on a typical day? Is there a set limit, or anything that you have found out by your experience?

    • It totally varies on the amount of time you have to be online and the availability of jobs. Along with what that specific job pays. You can make as much money in a day as you are able to, no set limit, the availability of jobs comes in to play again. As sometimes there is no jobs available. Some jobs are popular and people jump on them and then there gone fast.

  3. Hi Dan I enjoyed reading your post and I learnt something , I am new to all these online opportunities and thank you for taking the time to spell it out for us learners. When you say the tests are hard, what do you mean? Are they on one topic Or different ones? Regards rinda

  4. Hey Rinda, I’m glad I could help. First, the test are timed, you have a set amount of time to answer. Which some test I barely finished in time, I have also failed some test based solely on time. Second, even though the test are multiple choice, it is by no means easy. The answers are not the obvious choice or can be both a single answer or multiple of answers. Thirdly, for the writing jobs test, they are very specific for proper use of grammar and English. If English is something you didn’t flourish in, it’s going to be very difficult. Very meticulous. Hope this helps.

  5. Hi Dan I enjoyed reading your post. It really helps for work in crowdsourcing sites & micro-jobs site. I want assessment help regarding junior copywriter exam of onespace. Can you please guide or give some hints on question-answers of junior copywriter exam?

    • From my personal experience I found the junior copywriter exam very hard. I took it three times and barely passed as I remember and I am not the best at English. Depending on how many times you have taken the test, you can make notes while taking the test as to what the test consist of. Then study on these after the test. Don’t do this if your on your third try. Third try you need to pass the test and the limited amount of time to complete the exam. Another tip, I could give though not without controversy, is have a friend who is competent in English grammar and writing to sit next to you and help take the test. I remember the test was multiple choice but there was no clear right answer as it could have been one or two answers or even all of the above answers. But I would first explore the option of refreshing your English grammar and writing skills through some sort of course online. You will be a better writer technically and have more of a skill set. Hope this helps.

  6. Hi Dan It sounds really helpful. Junior copywriter test was multiple choice answers and all the answers are radio button type. So, How can it be possible to select more than one correct answer? Because when I select second radio button, first one obviously disappeared. So, I think there is only one correct answer to choose from multiple choice of radio button type answers. Other thing is can you please refer me to your friend who is competent in English grammar and writing to sit next to me and help me to pass the test. It would be really great. Can you please share your Email ID & your friend’s ID to me?

    • I’m sorry I meant to say that it could be answer A or A and B or d all of the above. Not that you would answer multiple answers, just that the answers were sometimes a combination of A & B or C & D. I never had a friend help me, I did it myself. I was just thinking outside the box and trying to help you. As there is no way of OneSpace knowing you are taking the test alone or with someone. Hope this helps.

  7. So true, I’ve been working in Crowdsource since 2014 up until now in Onespace. It has been my source of income, I work as Senior Quality Assurance specialist. Onespace never fails me, coz they pay me daily.

    • Kristine, thank you for leaving a comment and also validating that Onespace is a solid place to work. Where they pay you daily. It’s nice to hear from other people that have worked there for a long time as well.

  8. I signed up on OneSpace a week ago. Even after passing three tests – Junior Copy Writer, Quality Assurance Specialist and Senior Assurance Specialist – I haven’t had a single job offer. Are there any jobs available for other people these days? Maybe I’m not getting any because I live outside the U.S. and English is not my mother tongue. I wonder if I’m just wasting my time doing more tests.

    • I haven’t been on OneSpace in a while but decided to check if any jobs were available. I quickly looked and there were none available to me either, but this used to change hourly or even change every half an hour. Your best bet would open a support ticket and ask the question or even login in to their forums and ask and research there.
      When I was very active there sometimes nothing would be released for hours, it all depends on what jobs are currently available. I know the test are quite lengthy and very hard but the more qualifications you have the more jobs would be available to you and your qualification will be good forever, . I also have no idea if it’s because of your native languages. So, I think your best bet is the support ticket, it can be found at find work at the bottom of the page. Then it takes you to the support center, there you can find it at the top right hand corner of the screen Called “Submit a Request”. Hope this helps. I would be curious as to what you find out, If you have time to come back and leave another comment as to your findings. Thanks, Nakko!

  9. Hello Dan,
    I am very satisfied with One Space, but it is irritating that I have to wait for jobs to appear… The best hours you are mentioning in your review (2:00, 01:00, 02:00) are they CEST or EST or some other time zone? I live in CEST time zone…

    • The work at Onespace just seems less tedious to me than most places. I think it’s purposely done to make it more enjoyable, unlike other sites that lay down the most work possible, with the most hoops to jump through. You point to one of the biggest draw backs with Onespace, waiting for jobs. Onespace should make more of an effort to find more work, so jobs would be laying around more. An abundant of jobs, from which to choose.
      The best hours I mentioned were Central Standard Time from my experience but as all things change in time. As I don’t know currently, what are the best times. Just less people awake looking for work at them early morning hours.
      Thanks for the question hope this helps you.

  10. Hello,
    i failed senior QA two times, can you give me some tips or advice on how to pass that test? And what happen if i fail all 3 attempts?
