Nightshift Worker Compensation
In effect until further notice with new package purchases
Most of our captcha typers live in countries that have a time difference of 8 to 12 hours from most of our DeathByCaptcha clients. This means, that while its the afternoon in United States, its the middle of the night in India and Pakistan.
To get more captcha typers online on their night hours, we would need to pay them much more than what we pay on regular hours. The recent increase in demand of our service has left us with an insufficient amount of online workers, nowadays mostly during 9am to 8pm server time, and as a result this has drastically increased overload and solve times during these hours.
Feedback from you, our customers, has made it clear that the vast majority of you prefer that the workers get paid a little more in exchange for faster solve times and thus we have added a small additional cost to all images sent during 9am and 8pm. Images sent outside of this timeframe are billed the regular rate of 1.39. It is important to note that ALL of the “Nightshift Worker Compensation” goes straight to our workers and DeathByCaptcha does NOT gain ANY benefit.
For the Week of October 04, 2022 through October 11, 2022:
Current Nightshift Worker Compensation: 47.23% (Your price for captcha sent during 9am and 8pm server time is 1.39 + 47.23%)
We may increase the Nightshift Worker Compensation up to 49% and modify time in force (schedule) to ensure sufficient worker availability.
