Are you always short of cash or just an unemployed person looking for an opportunity for some employment? Either way, you are at the right place! Here we have a list of the most popular and also the best online working opportunities. You don’t have to pay anything in advance since the registration process is free of charge, but you will have to previously register to some online payment platform, which is most commonly PayPal. Basically, all you have to do is register and start working.
SHORT TASK WEBSITES
HUMANATIC – a website where you can earn money by sorting (NOT making!) phone calls
Humanatic employs people from all over the world to review and sort phone calls. The first thing you have to have is a fully verified PayPal account (connected to a card or a bank account). This way they are able to check if you are a real person and not some kind of a robot. Then you have to register on their website providing your basic info together with a short text in English, which enables them to check your level of English. You will have to wait a few days for them to evaluate your application and when they eventually do, the reviewing can start immediately.
As a new reviewer you will have only two categories to handle, which are the least paid ones, but afterward, when you get some success in the process, you will unlock many categories which will have a higher paying rate. Your earning depends on your speed and accuracy, but it is possible to earn even 400$ a month if you are super accurate and if you work more than 8 hours a day.
ONE SPACE – a platform with a multitude of paid short tasks
First, you have to create an account on their site and fill in your basic info. Then you have to pass their qualification tests. These tests are not so easy, but it is possible to try them more than once. There are a few tests and every one has its own group of tasks. The moment you unlock the categories you can start working. Payments are automatically made daily, through your PayPal account even if you have earned only a few cents.
Their basic tasks are in the field of copywriting: moderating forums and commenting blogs on topical issues. Other possible tasks are about categorizing data, checking it for accuracy and even a transcription.
