Until now, there was no way to transfer earnings from Amazon Mechanical Turk into bank account (at least in India for those workers whose account approved but direct bank transfer not granted). The other way was to accept earnings in the form of Amazon.com gift card.
I was using the combination of Purse.io and WazirX for the same, and the process was elaborate with time involved equivalent to shipping time taken by Amazon.com order placed through Purse.io plus peer to peer transfer on WazirX, which however took not more than an hour or so. Refer this article: How to convert Amazon.com gift card balance to Indian rupee with Purse.io and WazirX.com). From October 26, things will change.
Greetings from Amazon Mechanical Turk,
We are excited to announce that a new simplified Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) payment transfer option will be available on October 26, 2020. This new option will enable you to have your MTurk payments deposited directly into a virtual US bank account on a regular schedule. You will have the option of scheduling payments every 3, 7, 14, or 30 days.
We’re sharing this information now to give Workers an opportunity to setup a virtual US bank account ahead of the upcoming change. As a non-US Worker, you may use any third-party service to get a virtual US bank account. These services help you transfer money from your virtual US bank account to your local bank account. We recommend you do your own research before choosing a third-party service. One example of such a service is Hyperwallet. If you’d like to set up a bank account using Hyperwallet you can get started now by clicking this link: https://worker.hyperwallet.com
