I've talked about this smartphone app quite a lot, and it is one of my favorites to use. How fast they pay is one good reason why I like them so much! You use it while you are out shopping. They have a lot of products listed on their offer wall, mostly grocery products, and if you buy those while you're out, you can upload your receipt to Ibotta and they'll pay you back some actual cash for proving you bought the item(s). You only need $20 to get paid to Paypal, and they send it almost instantly after you request it.
This is a site where you can sign up to transcribe audio files. They pay new transcribers $20 an audio hour (remember this is quite a bit longer than a regular hour). You can get in with no prior transcription experience, you just have to take a short test which I believe you can retake if you fail it the first time. You only need $1 to cash out, hitting the withdrawal button for payment any time as long as you have $1 earned. It might be one of the best ways to make money fast today if you can pass the skills test.
PointsPrizes delivered a working Steam wallet code in exchange for 3,000 points that I accumulated over several weeks. Though it took slightly more than a week to process my claim, the important thing is that they kept the promise, so the site is legit. I had a few problems with some external survey sites that kicked me out just before completing a survey after investing like 15 to 20 minutes (happened twice) and about 2 or 3 others that somehow failed to credit despite the survey being completed. But most of the time, it gets properly credited, and eventually you can reach the target if you are persistent enough despite constant survey rejections. The only thing you have to decide is whether you are prepared to invest the amount of time needed (if you rely on surveys).
Fiverr is a popular platform for offering services. You can create your own Gigs to have available for sale. As the name suggests, Gigs are available to purchase starting at $5 though you can offer upsells to increase your earnings. You do need to wait 14 days between completing a Gig to being able to withdraw your earnings by PayPal. There are fees associated with these transactions.
