There are times when many of us find ourselves in a bind and we need money today, even if it's just a couple of bucks. Fortunately, there are some websites you can use to earn fast cash online. I'm not going to lie to you, many of them are just extra cash online and will never replace your income. Regardless, they can save you in a pinch when you need it most if you use them regularly and allow the money to build up.
PineCone Research is one of the most highly coveted survey panels. They don’t always have openings for everyone. At the time of writing this post they are looking for males over the age of 18 in the U.S. If you can get a spot, however, you can expect to earn about $3 per survey. You will receive your first payment by check but can switch to PayPal after that.
Slice the Pie is a site I use quite frequently. All you do is listen to music and rate/review it. You'll get paid anywhere from six to seven cents up to sometimes seventeen cents per song you review just depending on if they have any promos going on. It only takes a few minutes to review a song. They pay out on Tuesdays and Fridays and you must have a minimum of $10 to withdraw your earnings, but this is very possible to do twice per week.
**As reported in Nielsen’s PayPal Credit Average Order Value Study for activity occurring from April 2015 to March 2016 (small merchants) and October 2015 to March 2016 (midsize merchants), which compared PayPal Credit transactions to credit and debit card transactions on websites that offer PayPal Credit as a payment option or within the PayPal Wallet. Nielsen measured 284,890 transactions across 27 mid and small merchants. Copyright Nielsen 2016.
Unlike traditional survey sites, you just have a very natural feeling conversation answering questions when you want without being locked into a time-critical survey that will disqualify you if you have to go and cook dinner or answer a phone call. You earn points for each question which are saved and once you hit 5000 you have reached your first payout of £5.
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.
PrizeRebel is another survey website that offers payout options via PayPal. You can cash out as little as 500 points to earn $5. PrizeRebel offers a wide range of PayPal redemption options starting at $5 on up to $100 payout amounts. You can also request a custom payout based on the specific amount of points that you have which is a nice touch. Another bonus is that PrizeRebel occasionally offers a slight discount on the point redemptions as well. For example, instead of spending 500 points to redeem $5 it ends up being 485 points instead (a 3% bonus).
You can list an extra room or second house with Airbnb to earn a few extra bucks and meet some exciting guests in the process. PayPal is one of the payment methods for Airbnb hosts with each stay. In addition to becoming a host, you can also offer travel experiences on Airbnb too like being a tour guide, teaching cooking lessons, or a private concert.
If you have done any amount of shopping online, you have probably seen the “Pay with PayPal” payment option at the checkout screen. You can add these own buttons to your website with PayPal or use an online shopping cart like Shopify that will automatically deliver your digital products and drop ship physical goods you keep in a distribution warehouse.
