Typists get paid per audio minute though outsec hasn’t indicated their pay rates on their website, I guess you get that information during your application process. Outsec transcribers or typists are paid directly into their UK bank accounts in UK Pounds Sterling on the 15th of each month.
Transcribers/typists who are not in the UK or who do not have a UK bank account receive their payments through PayPal in their local currency equivalent to the UK Pounds Sterling rate. Unfortunately, they don’t do bank transfers for people outside the UK. So you will not be able to receive payment without PayPal.

This is another transcription company. Onespace is currently searching for English and international language transcribers or transcriptionists. Your job at once is listening to audio files and converting them to texts . According to my research and the information on their website, most of their audios are usually between 30 seconds and 10 minutes long. In my experience, transcribing a 10 minutes video can take about 40 minutes because it takes around 4 minutes to transcribe one audio minute if you are a good transcriber. They have also not disclosed their pay rate on their website but they claim to make payments daily for all approved work. So you can expect to receive daily payment as long as you work and you work gets approved.
They also offer other work opportunities like data entry jobs, writing jobs, editing jobs, product research and graphic design jobs and so on. So if transcription is not your thing and you are interested in something else, you might want to check out onespace.
