Earn Money Watching Commercials – Hive Micro

One of the online platforms that offer the opportunity to do simple tasks and earn in the comfort of your home is Hive Micro. It was also called Hive Work before. You can also download the application that is available on both Google Play and App Store.  They also have a website and you can go to their site using this link.

Trying out Hive Micro

Though Hive Micro gives you a chance to work with them by easily registering to their site, it is not that easy to earn cash here. It takes a lot of effort and time to earn enough that you can consider it as a job.

Anyway, it is legit and paying. So it is still up to you if you want to try it or not. You can consider working here in your free time and earn extra bucks.

When I tried it, I was able to finish 45 tasks, but only earned $0.18


This is how your dashboard looks like after registering.

Sample Tasks

These are the sample tasks that you can do here, those that are boxed in yellow. On each task, it will also indicate the amount that you can earn as well as how many tasks it takes for you to get this payment.

We have the Bound the Drink as the first example, where you will box the drinks given a certain rule. Here, you will earn $1.50 for finishing 1,000 tasks within the Bound the Drinks job.

The first task shown here is the one that we tried doing. Commercial labeling is where you will watch commercials and timestamp them with a specific rule. After that, you will also need to categorize it. Here, you can earn $4 every 1,000 tasks that you finish.

They also have a Transcription task, but pays not much.

For you to have more tasks, you need to take a qualification test on each by clicking “Take Qualification Test” on the bottom part of the task box.

Commercial Labeling

This is the inside of the commercial labeling platform. It looks like a usual media player with a video screen and player buttons like play, pause, backward, forward, and many more. They will teach you the instructions once you take the qualification test mentioned earlier including some shortcut keys.

You will timestamp the video that plays within the duration of the red bar. You can adjust the timestamp using the second bar below. Timestamp it from the exact start of the frame and the end of the frame. You will know more about this after you take the qualification test.

This is where you can adjust the timestamp.

This box is where you will type the category of the commercial you timestamped.  You will just type in what the commercial brand is, then wait for the results, then choose the best category that fits the commercial.

Now, once you’re done categorizing, it will be considered one task finished. If you want to do more commercial labeling tasks, click next on the top-right of the screen. If you don’t want to continue or you need to do something else, click close on the upper-left.

Proof of Payment

This is a proof of payment from Hive Micro. It says Castle Global, but it’s the same company with Hive Micro. They pay via PayPal.
