With that said, if you’re here to find out what Humanatic is all about you’ve come to the right place. Can you really get paid just for listening to recorded calls?
Let’s find out.
What is Humanatic?
Humanatic is a company that is owned by Century Interactive. Century Interactive was founded in 1988 and they applied for the Humanatics trademark in 2014. The company is based in Dallas, Texas and has estimated annual revenues of $15 million.
The Humanatic software gives businesses a clear and detailed analysis of their phone calls, using home-based reviewers who listen to recorded calls. These reviewers assist in providing companies with analysis that will help them improve their business.
How Does Humanatic Work?
I’m sure you’ve called a company and heard the operator say to you on the other end, “this call is being recorded for quality assurance…” Or something to that effect.
Humanatic pays members to review phone calls and to sort calls into the correct category.
For example, calls might be sorted into “New client, old client, or uncertain”. It is important for the reviewer to listen carefully to the recorded calls.
The company then records the accuracy and for reviewers with higher accuracy, they will get access to higher-paying tasks.

How to Make Money With Humanatic
The amount of money you can make will depend on your skill level. Jobs are divided into different categories. All new reviewers will start with the company reviewing the two most basic categories (easy).
The higher-paid jobs are unlocked by achieving certain accuracy targets. There is an expectation that you will earn somewhere between $1 and $4.50 per hour depending on your skills and how accurate your work is.
You are required to have your own verified PayPal account to receive your payment. Payments are made every Monday as long as you have earned the $10 threshold that week, you can have your funds deposited.
Here’s a tweet from someone earning with Humanatic.
As a best practice, most reviewers have reported that they found more success when you setting goals on how many calls to review in a day. Rather than focusing on the money earned.
Becoming a Mediator
When you have a much better understanding of how particular categories work, you may earn the option of becoming a “Mediator” where you can earn up to $50 to $150 per day.
Currency considerations can have an effect on your eventual earnings. You are paid in US dollars and you will want to convert these to your local currency to spend.
In the early stages of your time with Humanatics, you should focus on spending your time learning about each category. So that you will get both faster and more accurate.
By performing well you will gradually be promoted through the categories and have the opportunity to increase your earnings.
Of course, the number of hours you spend working will also have a big impact on your earnings. You can choose to work either part-time or full-time. It’s up to you.
