Virtual Bee

Virtual Bee, formerly Keys for Cash, offers data entry work at home opportunities.

I had heard a lot about this company back when it was called Keys For Cash.   At the time, I was really skeptical of it because it screamed "scam" to me but I couldn't have been more wrong.

Over at some of the work at home boards such as, many posters talked about how great the work was but that work was scarce and of course, this being a data entry position, the pay was not great.

Now this company has changed its name to Virtual Bee but from what I see, the pay is still pretty low but turnover is pretty low too.

That tells me that people are not willing to let go of this job once they get it, probably because, while it is low paying work, it seems to be easy and perhaps even pleasant work.

Virtual Bee- Job Duties

You can expect that you would be seeing items displayed on your screen, whether they be names, addresses, dollar amounts, etc and typing them into the appropriate location on the site quickly and accurately.

If you have ever done data entry work, then you may know how it can become almost pleasant after a while.  The work is not difficult and you don't need to have prior experience to work for them, although again, it does help if you are a fast typist.


Pay is dependent upon the assignment you are working on. 

Pay can range anywhere from .20-.60 cents per 1000 keystrokes.

If you consider this a way to make a little extra pocket cash, then you may not be disappointed with not even making the minimum wage in your state if you work for this company.  But please be aware that along with the low rate of pay, work can be scarce.

Virtual Bee will send out a paycheck via mail weekly, provided you meet the minimum for payout, which is $30.   If you have not made enough to cash out, then your earnings will be held over until the following week, or until you reach that $30 minimum

You can also sign up to get paid via Direct Deposit.

One more thing, working for this company, you would be an independent contractor and not an employee of the company, to see the difference between the two, please click here.

Virtual Bee offers this position worldwide

The neat thing about this company is that they do offers these data entry positions worldwide.  

If you live in the U.S., you must be at least 18 years of age.

If you live outside the U.S., then the company requires that you have lived outside the U.S. for a minimum of 3 years.  Not sure why this requirement is there, but it is.

No experience is necessary but they do require that you take an assessment test to check your typing speed and accuracy.

If there is one requirement to get hired on with Virtual Bee, it is that you pass the typing assessment with a score of 97-100%.

Not an easy task, I tell you!

The good news is that they will let take this test again once a day.  So, conceivably, you can try to take this test until you pass.


One of the positives about this opportunity with this data entry company is that you are not bound to a set schedule.   You can simply log on to the system anytime that you want to, however, there is no guarantee that work will be available.
