Data entry is one of the more popular jobs online. While I find these jobs to be tedious, some don’t mind it. After all, I would say it’s one of the easier jobs to perform online.
In today’s post, I wanted to talk about a company that provides entry level work called Sigtrack. The hours are flexible, the work is legit, and best of all, you get paid.
As in all of my reviews, I am always 100% honest and would never promote something I don’t believe in. You won’t find me peddling products nor will I ever accept a sponsorship I don’t believe in. I just don’t work that way.
If you like the idea of working a few hours a week at home, all while doing data entry, then jump in and see if Sigtrack is a company for you.
What is Sigtrack?
According to the company, Sigtrack is a database of sorts that connects “grassroots” campaigns with crowdsourced data entry freelancers.
On the official website, it’s hard to determine what exactly they do, but digging deeper online, it appeared you will perform data entry tasks of sorts, such as verifying petition signatures against a voter database, for instance. Most of the work you do will deal with verifying signatures that involve petitions.
How Does It Work?
When you log into the app, you will see a job list for each client, with each job offering a varying job rate. You will just click on the job name to start working and forms will automatically load. Most of the work you will complete will be a petition of sorts and you will be asked to match up a signature to a voter’s name.
It will be your job to use the “smart search” feature to find signatures. Depending on the mode used, you can search the name, address, birthdate or a combination of them all. To learn more about how the search and tag features work, you can view it in this guide.
The job specs will vary, depending on which state you’re working on, but most work in the same way. You will just have to pay attention to the instructions to know what’s expected of you. Each job, according to the company, can take anywhere from 6 to 120 seconds to find a signature and “tag” it. In the case you can’t tag it, then you will flag a scan to move onto the next task.
The work is self-explanatory and the smart search, at least most of the time, can find you the information you need to succeed.
How to Apply
If you’re interested in working with Sigtrack, you can apply via the official website at Sigtrack.net. On the site, you can click on the “How do I start?” and start the application process. It will look something like this…
Now, the company isn’t always hiring as it’s a very popular company to work for, so if you do see the “we are not currently accepting new users” message, as noted in the screenshot above, don’t worry. The company will often post openings so continue to check back as often as you can.
If you’re able to apply, the company will ask you to take a quick three-second video, in which you will show your driver’s license next to your face. You will then email it to the company to confirm your identity. Once approved, they will send you a password to access the app as well as an application guide to help you through the process.

Like most jobs, there are qualifications, of course, and Sigtrack is no different.
In order to be considered, you must meet the following qualifications to be considered:
- U.S. resident (no California or Massachusetts residents)
- You must have a PayPal account
- Your computer must run Windows 10+ or MacOS 10.13+
- Dual monitor setup recommended
The qualifications aren’t much. You don’t need a degree nor do you need to be a fast typist. As long as you’re a U.S. resident, not residing in California or Massachusetts, you should be approved. The barriers to enter are rather low in comparison to competing companies.
How Much Does Sigtrack Pay?
Next to each job, you will see what’s known as a base rate. This is the rate that’s split between the user who enters the data and another user who reviews the work. How much of the share you get will depend on your error percentage, but the first person to work on the job will never get less than half of the share, regardless of the outcome.
The company has an accuracy rate formula, which can affect your base rate. So, for instance, if you score a 100% to 98% accuracy, then each percent of error is worth 10% of the base rate. If you fall below 98%, then each percent is worth 5%. This share is calculated per day, per job.
The pay can sound confusing, I know, but I encourage you to study this “How Pay Works” guide to understand what you’re going to make. Depending on how fast you are, it appears you can average about $7~ to $12~ per hour. But, again, this will depend on your speed and accuracy. You could make much more or much less. One reviewer on Indeed, for instance, said they were lucky to make $25 in a day.
Aside from the pay, you can also earn badge and production bonuses, which can increase your pay by more than 10%. You can learn more about that here.
To maximize your pay, the company strongly recommends dual monitors as this can greatly increase your earning potential. While you can do this job with one monitor, a dual monitor can help you view the forms in full clarity so that you don’t have to click back and forth. Even if you don’t have two monitors, they do note you can use an iPad as your second monitor by copying the URL that displays.

Final Thoughts8/10If you want a job that requires no talking to people and one that’s flexible, Sigtrack is one to put high on your list. The pay seems to be good, the barrier to enter to start working is low, and their reputation seems to be good. As long as you don’t mind data entry-like work, then I don’t think you will be disappointed.
Remember, it can take some time to get approved. In fact, don’t be surprised if it takes months before you hear back. Since this position is quite popular, there’s a lot of competition.
