Did you know that your mobile device can become a source of extra income? It’s true, thanks to apps that you can install on your phone completely free. Using money-making apps can be easy and even a fun way to earn some extra cash. Here seven of the best apps to earn money and how they work.
eBay is an excellent app to earn money on items you no longer want or need. Many have also built a business around finding items at thrift stores and estate and garage sales and fixing them up or selling as is at a profit. On eBay, it is an auction style sale with the option to sell items at a “Buy It Now” fixed price. For some rarer or sought after items, it is best to use the auction items as the competition can sometimes drive the price much higher than expected. All transactions are done through PayPal, making it secure. There are some fees involved; however, most are minimal in comparison to the returns.
The Foap app is an app that allows users to make money uploading and selling their photos and videos. When a company, person, or brand purchases one of your photos or videos, you split the profits 50/50 with Foap. You can use pictures or videos you’ve already taken or earn higher pay by taking new ones through “missions.” It is a fun way to use your photography and videography skills while making money. This app calls for the user to have an active PayPal account to receive payment.
Acorns is a spare change investment app. Through a linked bank account, Acorns rounds every purchase to the nearest dollar and uses that “spare change” to make investments. This is an excellent app for first-time investors that don’t have a lot of capital to invest; however, it does have a ceiling of the money you can earn, so that should help you decide how to use it. It also has a small monthly fee depending on the tier chosen.
This app is perfect for the person that endeavors to step it up every day and get your steps in. On Sweatcoin, you earn $0.95 for every 1,000 steps you take. While this app does not earn you cash, it earns you shopping credits at over 300 retailers. You’re walking anyway, why not earn free stuff?
OfferUp is as if eBay and Craigslist had a baby. OfferUp used to be an app only for local sales of second-hand items within your area. But it now has the added feature of shipping open it up to the world like eBay. The great thing about eBay and Craigslist is that it costs nothing to post or sell your items. It also helps you predetermine shipping costs at the time of posting so you can consider it when setting a sale price. If purchased locally, you can save money on the shipping and schedule a meetup with the buyer.
Mobee is a secret shopper app that offers missions in your area. If you choose the mission, it gives you instructions on what to do. The missions could be taking a survey or taking a picture inside the store. When you complete missions, Mobee rewards you points that can be redeemed for gift cards to various shopping sites and establishments, including Amazon.
TaskRabbit is an app that helps you get paid to do physical labor services in your area. You set up a profile with the services and skills you offer, and people hire you to help them out. Some of the more popular tasks are moving, cleaning, rearranging furniture, mounting a television, etc. If you aren’t afraid of some physical labor, you can make a good side-hustle from TaskRabbit.
