Amazon Increases Fees for Crowdsourcing Services

After providing crowdsourcing services for 10 years, Amazon recently announced that they are substantially increasing their fees for the work they perform for clients.

The commission fee for Amazon’s online labor services platform, Merchanical Turk, will increase to 20% beginning July 21, doubling the original fee of 10%. In addition to this, an extra 20% fee will be charged for crowdsourcing jobs requiring 10 or more people.

Needless to say, these changes have the potential to significantly impact companies and researchers who use Amazon for their crowdsourcing needs.
