A part-time freelance writer who is trying different ways to earn money online.

Are you looking for real data entry jobs from home without investment? Before we begin, let me save you some time and tell you that data entry jobs don't pay a lot. If you are looking to earn a full-time income, then data entry jobs aren't your best bet. However, if you are fine with earning a part-time income from your work, then data entry jobs are worth looking into.

These jobs are ideal for those people who are looking to earn money online without investment by typing. You can do these jobs without any specialized skills in most cases. If you have specialized skills like writing, you should focus on jobs related to those skills to earn more.

It is important to remember that websites that charge money for providing data entry jobs might not be legitimate. If you encounter a website that wants you to spend money to get work, then you should look for reviews online to find out the truth.

Now let us take a look at the best data entry jobs from home without investment.

The Smart Crowd

The Smart Crowd was earlier known as Virtual Bee. You can find a number of jobs on this website based on where you live. They will require you to take placement evaluations to determine if you are the right fit for a job or not. If you are the right fit, then you will get an email from them. I don't think that it would be too difficult to qualify for most jobs on their website. You can join their community if you don't find any jobs interesting as they add new jobs from time to time.

It is important to remember that the pay is based on your country and your skills. The difference between this and other similar websites is that The Smart Crowd has already worked with global leaders like Adobe, Dell, Porsche, Rolls Royce, etc. This can be a really exciting opportunity for those who are interested in working part-time.

In most cases, you will earn around $5-$6 per hour as a beginner. Clearly, the pay is not the best, but the website is 100% legit. You can choose your schedule, but you will have to work a certain number of hours that will be chosen by you.


Clickworker offers a wide variety of jobs that can be completed quickly including but not limited to data entry jobs. Your pay will depend on various factors like the amount of specialized knowledge or skill required to complete the job, the time taken by you to complete the job and the amount of research involved. Since data entry jobs are not that hard to do in most cases, I don't think that you will be paid a lot. You can get the most out of this website if you can complete jobs quickly.

One of the issues of this website seems to be the lack of jobs. There are several complaints about delay of payments as well. However, in some cases people found jobs that pay well, so you can do well if you are lucky. Their support system is good, which should allow you to get help if you run into any problems.

Amazon Mechanical Turk

Amazon Mechanical Turk, also known as MTurk, is a platform that will allow you to perform simple tasks and earn money. The platform is not limited to data entry jobs as it includes all sort of small tasks like content moderation or surveys. Since this platform is backed up by Amazon, there is no reason to doubt its legitimacy.

Most tasks pay a few cents with some tasks paying a few dollars. The pay is not the best, but it can add up if you are able to work quickly. You may have to wait a while to work on this platform as it is not accepting new people all the time.


Upwork is a freelancing website that offers various types of jobs including data entry jobs. When I searched Upwork for "data entry job," I found more than 1,100 jobs. You will have to write a proposal and convince the client to hire you before you can do the job. This isn't easy if you are new, but I am sure that you can do well once you apply yourself.


Guru is yet another freelancing website that offers data entry jobs. The fact is that you might have to wait a while before you get hired on this platform. The frequency of jobs posted on this platform is much lower than Upwork, so it can take some time to get hired. However, you should be able to work and get paid the agreed amount once you get hired.


PeoplePerHour is a freelancing website that might have some data entry jobs. Their application process is there to make sure that skilled people get through. Even though the application process is not hard, it should help weed out unskilled people. The advantage is that people have to bid above a certain amount so that the competition remains fair. So, if you are worried about losing a job because of low bids by the competitors, then you should consider this platform.

AccuTran Global (Only for US or Canadian Citizens)

AccuTran Global is not focused on data entry as it focuses on transcribing, voice writing, etc. The company will only hire people for data entry or other jobs when they have a proven track record with the company. You will need to have a typing speed of 70 words per minute and also perform well in tests to get selected. Keep in mind that you might have to start with transcription work before you can get data entry jobs from this company.

The company will ask you to select your availability, and you will get work based on that. You can choose your own hours as there are no restrictions on the number of hours. Unfortunately, the job opportunities are only available to people who live in the US or Canada at the time of writing this.

DionData Solutions (Only for US Citizens)

DionData Solutions has been around since 1999, so they should be around for a long time. Like I mentioned in the heading, they seem to only hire US citizens. You will need to submit your application when they start hiring as they aren't hiring at the time of writing this review. They will respond to your application if they decide to hire you. The pay is not mentioned by the company, but I found that they pay per piece or document rather than per keystroke or word.

Ajilon (Only for US Citizens)

Ajilon allows you to find jobs that you are qualified for once you submit your resume on their website. There are plenty of data entry jobs on this website, but this website is also for those people who live in the US. The data entry jobs on this website require you to work on-site from what I can gather. The pay should depend on the company that you work for, but it should be more than what most online data entry jobs pay these days.


Xerox offers a wide variety of jobs, and you may find some data entry jobs on this website. I could not find a single virtual job when I did a search on the website. It might be because of my geographical location, so someone from US might get better results if they do a search. You can check out this website, but I cannot assure you that you will find any data entry jobs.

How Much Can I Earn From Data Entry Jobs?

Your pay will depend on where you work and the amount of skill required for the job. The average pay is around $13 per hour in the US. Some jobs pay as high as $20 or more per hour. People who live outside the US or the people that live in third world countries will not get paid as much as people who live in the US. You may have to settle for $6 or $7 per hour.

Final Thoughts

All of the data entry jobs listed in this article are trustworthy, so you should get paid if you follow the guidelines. Even though I don't prefer such jobs, I can surely see the appeal if you are looking to earn some money on the side without doing anything hard. Sometimes, data entry jobs can be stressful, but they will always be less stressful when compared to many jobs.
