Why Use peopleperhour.com?

The Signup Process at peopleperhour.com
The signup is easy, standard stuff of providing a few details about yourself including an email address.
Before being able to fully use the site, of course, you need to verify your email.
Once that’s done, you need to fill out your profile, which is set up in a very straightforward and streamlined way.
The only slight hiccup happens once you’ve filled out your profile.
You are then taken to a page that gives you two options to choose: the first one is a paid option, which gets you on a fast track of getting your application approved.
It costs $13 USD and you can pay for it with any major payment processor, from credit card companies to PayPal, and a few others too.
If you choose the paid option, your application gets fast-tracked and you are informed you will receive an email withing 24 hours, by which time you will be alerted by the PPH team on their decision of whether or not you’ll be allowed to use their platform.
Alternatively, you can wait for the free review of your application, which takes up to 7 days.
How to Start Working Once Your Application is Approved

What area of work to focus on?
