Writing is a popular way to earn money from home. You have probably seen ads for paid writing jobs online. You can also get paid to proofread other people’s writing from home. If you have excellent grammar skills, an eye for detail, and the ability to spot errors in writing, you may be able to set up proofreading as your own business. Read about how you can find Amazon proofreading jobs online here.
A lot of Amazon resellers need proofreaders and writers for product descriptions. Many of these owners have thousands of products and keeping their “online Amazon” store current, updated and typo free is important.
Obviously, this would be a no phone work at home position, which many are wanting. The idea of turning on some music at home, filling your favorite coffee cup and working right from your own comfy home is the dream, especially when it doesn't include dealing with grouchy customers.

FlexJobs for Amazon Proofreading Jobs
If you've not ever checked out FlexJobs for your work at home search, you seriously need to consider it as part of your job hunt arsenal. I've personally used FlexJobs for years. As a matter of fact, my current work at home job was one I found through FlexJobs. Now – to be transparent, they do charge a monthly membership fee, but it's very affordable and they give you a free trial.
All that being said — I've seen a multitude of proofreading jobs on their platform. Obviously, these aren't all Amazon jobs, but this is a great place to start if you're wanting to aim for not only remote work — but a proofreading career that's sustainable.
Freelancer for Finding Proofreading Jobs
I've used Freelancer for years. If there's been something wrong with my site, or I've needed a web designer, SEO help — things out of my skill set, I've gone to Freelancer.com. On the flip side of me hiring people, there are the people offering their services. You could be one of them. Don't be intimidated or put off by going through a platform like this. Freelancer is reputable and gets you “out there” as someone offering proofreading services. Little effort, little reward.
Plus, Freelancer allows you to set milestone payments and processes all payments through their processor. This keeps payments safe and on the up and up.
I've seen jobs for Amazon Virtual Assistants and Amazon Data Processing with Excel Sheets too. So, not just proofreading.
I would be remiss to not include Amazon itself. You can check out all the jobs at Amazon by going to Amazon.jobs. You can look through all the different categories there – and not just proofreading or writing jobs — but so much more.
Fiverr has been around for quite some time. Created in 2010, it's just grown and gotten better and better. Though the competition is much steeper now than it was, say 5-6 years ago — if you create a profile and can build a good reputation, your chances of earning a steady stream of income is excellent. There are many Fiverr folks making a full time income – and this includes writers and proofreaders.
I created a Fiverr account several years ago to create Pinterest pins for clients and I did well with it. Sadly, between my blog and full-time job, I just couldn't keep up with it. I still have it though and was so thankful for the income it brought in when I was in the thick of it.
Creating an account is easy. And Fiverr breaks all services down by category. Getting your profile to stand out is the hard part – but after getting a few clients and good feedback, it can start to snowball.
I have a love/hate relationship with Upwork. I really don't like their “connect” system – I'd rather you just be allowed to apply for the job posts you qualify for. Regardless, it is a trustworthy platform with a lot of opportunity to find a job. Most are going to be freelance jobs or temporary jobs — but these can often turn into permanent full or part time jobs if you prove to be an asset and the work is ongoing.
It's free to sign up for Upwork, but extra “connect” credits will have to be purchased. I've found that I have enough connects to apply for the jobs that interest me. I'm very picky though and always looking for something super specific. If you wanna just mass apply to several jobs and see what “sticks” – this is probably not the right platform.
There are typically many, many proofreading and writing jobs though. Payment is made through the platform too — so there is a sense of security as far as getting paid.
Becoming a proofreader for Amazon is certainly now out of the realm of possibilities for someone wanting to not only work at home but be a proofreader as well. And because many of these positions on the platforms I mention here range from beginner to experienced, there's a lot of range. If you're wanting to up your chances, you can always check out courses like Caitlyn Pyles, Proofread Anywhere course. She offers a no obligation, free 76 minute workshop!
