Deliver For Postmates

Using this app, you can make money by shopping as usual then getting some cash-back rewards. With Ebates, receipt scanning is not necessary; you just have to click a link on the app before buying from the store.

Use Existing Websites

People who are looking to make some extra money online know that Craigslist is a great place to start. You can sell your old things, offer up your services, or rent out spare rooms in your apartment.


On Fiverr, you can offer up any service for as low as 5 dollars.  Many providers are earning up to six-figure amounts on Fiverr, making it a sensible source of income. When choosing a service to provide, make sure you choose something valuable.


Do you have a passion for photography? You can sell some photos on leading photography sites; you just need a few design software skills. If you have this skill, your potential for passive income is real.

Sell Your Own Stuff

If you want to start selling products online, you will need a hosting account and website. If you think that going it alone it a lot of work, consider using sites such as Amazon to sell your wares. Here are the available options:

Shopify Ecommerce

Do you want to create your own storefront? You can create your own Shopify storefront but you will need a merchant account to process your payments as well as an SSL certificate. If you lack the capital to set up your online shop, you can turn to crowdfunding sites such as Plumfund for help.


You could forget about the hassle of creating your own storefront and opt for the largest selling store online. Although you will have to part with a commission, every process will be automated.

High-ticket Consulting

You could start selling high ticket coaching or consulting products on your site, but you will need a merchant account among other things. However, you could earn a large amount from every client, making the effort worthwhile.
