By Far The Best

First off, I’ve tried over 50 different apps and probably over 80 companies who claim to offer a similar opportunity. So far, not one even comes close to the Observa platform. All tasks are well explained, the support actually responds to you, and most importantly you actually receive your compensation faster than any other so called companies claiming to offer freelance projects. Thank you Observa, but I was almost hesitant to write this review because I don’t wanna give away my secret gem. That or I thought to discourage others from signing up because once someone works with Observa it’s hard to tolerate any other company. Hands down the best platform of all and I just wish I could add more stars to the review because I haven’t even found a service that’s a close tie. 1# in all aspects of this type of service.

First Job—Paid In 45 mins—Automatically!

**I am not a paid spokesperson for the company. In no way am I paid to write this review, but I’m so pleased that I couldn’t wait to get home and share!**

First time working a job on this app and with this company. I read the description of the job I was eyeing and needed clarification. I emailed their support team who got back with me in less than 15 minutes—on a Sunday! They helped me with my question and I went about the job.

My advice: Read the instructions carefully. Double, no, triple check your work. As long as you’ve done everything as asked, you will be paid. Once they approve, you’re paid. Automatically. No rewards points, no waiting until you hit a certain amount to cash out, none of that. Automatic. Anxiously waiting for more jobs!

Really Impressed

I completely two separate jobs today, one for HEB and another for a Gas Station. The HEB one took me 5 minutes. It was just taking photos of a product. They paid me directly $6.36 to PayPal within 30 minutes of completion!

The second one at the Gas Station took me a lot longer and was more tedious, but was also mainly taking photos and answering questions. I just got paid for that one $7.00 directly to my PayPal. This one took about 6 hours for payment, but that’s still awesome!

With the quick payouts, I will definitely continue to use. I was worried this may be a scam, but $14 for less than an hour of work and same day pay? Thank you Observa!
