You can set $5 as a minimal charge for doing basic work and can charge more for advanced work. You can always refer to others sales page to get a rough idea about how your page should look like.

There are too many freelancing sites available these days and the competition between freelancers have increased a lot too. So at times you will have to work at a cheaper rate in order to grab certain orders. If you can deliver high quality work consistently then you can increase your rate any time; so for the start I would advise you to set your rate a bit lower.
Required Average Data Entry KPH speed
KPH in data entry stands for Keystrokes Per Hour. You can earn a decent money if your average speed is around 40-50 WPH doing online data entry jobs. If it is above 50 WPH then that is a great advantage to get more work thus more money. So here is the KPH conversion for you considering the average WPM as 40 (assuming each word to be 5 letters).
Words Per Minute (WPM) = 40
Keystrokes Per Minute (KPM)= 200 (Assuming each word to be of 5 letters each)
Keystrokes Per Hour (KPH) = 12000
So if your average KPH speed is around 12000 then it will be considered to be good and the chance of earning decent money will be high. You can practice and improve your typing skill by spending on typing tutorial sites online. If you already have an excellent typing speed then you should definitely try the online data entry sites listed above.
