Earning money is a difficult task these days, but earning money on Chegg is easy. It is said that when a person does nothing, something goes on in his mind. The same thing has happened to me. We were facing a complete lockdown due to novel Covid-19 in March of 2020. I was getting frustrated sitting at home. A senior from Mechanical Engineering suggested to me that earning money on Chegg is so easy, you can earn easily. He was also earning money from Chegg by solving questions those days. I was surprised, I thought it may be fake, but it was genuine.
I googled, started to search about Chegg, and went through the below stages.

It was time to get a dashboard, provided by Chegg on their official website. They intimated about activation of my expert answerer account. The door was now open for earning money on Chegg.
Stage (6) Chegg personalized dashboard
Now, an amazing journey was started ongoing dashboard of Chegg. I clicked on http://www.chegg.com/my/expertqa and went on the Question n Answer dashboard. See the screenshot below:
I entered my Expert Answerer login credentials and click on Sign In. A new tab appeared as my personal dashboard as like:
“Start answering questions” to start answering on Chegg Q&A. The “FAQ” tab lists answers to my basic queries. The “My Answers” tab gives me details of the answers which I have submitted on the Chegg Q&A board.
The table on the right side of the tab shows my performance on Chegg Q&A. The stats can be seen daily, weekly and monthly basis. “Skipped” count indicates the number of questions that I have skipped. “Answered“ count indicates the number of questions that I have answered. “CF Score” is my quality score on Chegg Q&A
Stage (7): Eligible for payouts
After a trial period of answering the question, I got an email to congratulate me as I would be eligible for a payout.
Stage (8): Payment details
Now, the time was to receive my first payout. I solved only a few questions but was excited to see my first earning money on Chegg. Usually, Chegg’s payment is credited from the 12th to the 15th of the month. Chegg pays for every valid solution that has been submitted by me on the QnA dashboard.
See the screenshot of my first online earning on Chegg details:
The money can be received in the bank directly after a deduction of 10% TDS, the TDS can be received after filing an income tax return (ITR).
Stage (9): COMIS report
To ensure that students are being provided with the best answers possible, Chegg reviewers review random samples of each expert’s work. The COMIS review team always checks the quality of the answers. I got two times COMIS report with satisfactory but received not satisfactory once. The reason for not being satisfactory was a violation of Chegg guidelines. I maintained my account by improving my CF score (above 80%). CF score reflects the quality of your answer. See my COMIS report below:
Your account could be revoked and your dream of earning money on Chegg could be only a dream if you do not maintain your CF score. The journey of earning money on Chegg is still going on, but I give less time. You can earn a lot by maintaining your CF score of more than 80%.
