Important: From what we keep hearing PopOn is not a stable company to work for. We still need to verify with a couple of other sources. Hold off now when it comes to applying with them.
Review: PopOn is similar to PalFish and is focused on teaching Chinese students. It is not as popular as PalFish and at the time of this review, PalFish seems to be taking off in popularity. They claim that you can make up to $28.80 per hour and you get paid monthly through PayPal and Alipay. They list that you need to be a native teacher to apply, but I have heard of non-natives that are working on the app. Apparently, non-natives work as tutors at a set rate and native teachers are allowed to set their own rate. The calls are voice only on a phone with no video. Note: we have only heard this from one source, but from what we understand PopOn is going through funding issues. They are not able to pay on time due to this.
