How To Sign Up
Take a roughly 5-second video of your drivers license or state ID next to your face. Let the camera focus on the text of your ID, because they need to be able to read it if ever audited. Email the video to firstname.lastname@example.org.

How Pay Works
Origination vs. Peer Review
Each work unit has a base value shown in the terms per job. That value is split between the user who originally records the data and the user who verifies its accuracy. The originator’s share is 100% less a penalty for errors, but never less than 50%. Between 98% and 100% accuracy, each percent of error is worth 10% of the base rate. Below 98%, each percent is worth 5%. The share is calculated per job per day. Peer reviewers get a small piece rate in addition to the share they keep for correcting errors.
If you the base value of a block of work is $100, your share would be as follows:
92% accuracy: $50.00
94% accuracy: $60.00
96% accuracy: $70.00
98% accuracy: $80.00
You won’t get paid for tags if…
- tags should not have been entered in the first place, because the line is blank or crossed out,
- the file should have flagged instead of worked on,
- signatures were skipped over, and the file had to be reset for original processing, or
- overtly bogus queries or tags.
When you get paid
During peak season, which they are in now, every Friday for all work performed the prior calendar week.
What is realistic
Don’t expect to make much your first couple days. 250-350 tags per hour is a reasonable half-week goal. Jobs with difficult specs can go slower, but they typically pay higher piece rates. Some users do 500+ tags per hour with high accuracy. Without a dual monitor setup, your potential for earning money is cut in half. They’ve heard from many users who upgraded after months with a single screen setup who said they regret not believing this back when we told them.

Data Entry Careers
Looking to put your data entry skills to work? They have a dedicated, stable work force at Axion Data Entry Services, so openings are very rare. While they rarely have any openings, when we do, you will need to be registered in our database and have prior data entry experience. All operators work from home as independent contractors–that means you will use your own familiar equipment, handle your own taxes, work your own hours, and bill Axion at scheduled intervals.
Data Entry Contractor Requirements
Contractors interested in working with Axion Data Entry Services should have 2-3 years’ data entry experience with a keystroke rate of 15,000 keystrokes per hour (equivalent to 50 words per minute) error free. You must be proficient using your own Windows or Mac computer and have a high-speed broadband Internet connection.
As a member of the team, you’ll be judged on accuracy, attention to detail, and productivity. Compensation is a flat rate per document or entry, which varies from project to project. The more skilled and efficient you are, the more you will earn. Data entry is not for everyone, so be honest with yourself before you decide to register.
Document and data security is a high priority for the clients. Therefore, we require each applicant to undergo a criminal background investigation to assist us in determining your suitability as a contractor. This will not be required until we contact you about a possible opening. You will be asked to contact the security company and pay their fee of about $30 directly to them. Their report will be sent to us and a copy will be sent to you.
Register in Database
Axion does not advertise for data entry operators. Any “advertisements” you see on the Internet or elsewhere were placed without Axion’s knowledge or permission. Any e-mail you receive that does not have the domain name of @axiondata.com is not from them and probably a scam. To be considered for a data entry contractor position, you must register in their database, for which there is a nominal charge of $5, $7 or $10 depending on how long you want your name retained in the database.
They are not currently hiring, and because there is very little turnover, there is no guarantee you will ever be contacted
We are currently working on the registration page it should be back shortly. Thanks
