How to Actually Make Money Online: The Beginner's Guide
(Under 18 Edition)

If you're anything like most teenagers, you probably spend multiple hours online every day, be it on a computer or a smartphone. Chances are that you are probably watching videos, surfing social media, listening to music, playing games, and/or taking surveys (not really).

Here's the thing though - you can get paid for doing all of these things online, and more, by signing up on various sites.

As a teenager (and thus someone under 18) however, you have several limitations when it comes to making money online. One of those limitations is that you won't be accepted to many popular websites such as Amazon's Mechanical Turk (MTurk) or Clickworker. In addition to this, you may also have some issues working freelance jobs on sites like Upwork or Fiverr due to your age.

In this guide, I will show you that is in fact possible to earn money online, despite these limitations. You may notice that much of the methods here can be found in the Newbie Guide by Vincent, and that is exactly correct. Many of the methods listed there can be used by those under 18, but there are some notable exceptions.


The first step - Opening up ways to withdraw your money

There are some things you will have to do before you carry on with your money-making journeys. First and foremost, since you probably don't have a credit card yet, you should aim to open a PayPal account. You won't be able to verify it completely for obvious reasons, but this only means the account will have some restrictions (something like a $2500 deposit limit and $1000 or so withdrawal limit before you have to verify by id).

You may also have to link your bank account, but that should not be a problem for most people. The only problem would occur if they ask you to verify your id once you reach those limits, as previously mentioned. If that happens you won't be able to withdraw any of the money that you have left on your PayPal account until your 18.

In addition to this, it would probably be a good idea to open up different ways of withdrawing your money, too. One of those ways is through Bitcoin. It's not something that is available on all sites that will be mentioned, but it's definitely worth opening up a Bitcoin Wallet so you at least have the option.

If all else fails, then you can always receive your money through gift cards.

1. Passive Income methods that pay out in gift cards/crypto/paypal
Earning potential: These three methods amount to roughly $15 a month which might not sound like much, but believe me, it adds up!

Adds up to $180 a year, as a matter of fact. And it is money that is essentially passive. You won't want to miss out on these.
There are some methods that you could define as passive methods, or at least methods that require a very small amount of effort from your side.

The first of these passive methods is one of my personal favorites - namely the Brave Browser.




Brave Browser - Earn money just from using your browser

I have made a complete post of Brave Browser and how you can earn money with it over here, and you will have to read this post in order to start earning with Brave, but here is the short run-down:

Brave Browser is a chromium-based browser that has built-in TOR, is faster than chrome, and blocks all ads and trackers. It allows you to earn a cryptocurrency called Basic Attention Token (BAT) by viewing (entirely opt-in) ads with 70% revenue share to users and it is built with privacy in mind.

Long story short - it will allow you to earn up to $6 a month from just using your browser. You can click the image below to get started with this method.

Honeygain - Earn passive income selling your unused bandwidth

Honeygain is a crowdsourced network company which enables other businesses to conduct intelligence, market, and business research. It is an application which, when turned on, allows you to earn money from your unused internet by making your device a gateway.

Using Honeygain has no effect on internet experience (peak usage <3MB/s), and Honeygain does not keep any data of their clients. The only data they will have is what will be necessary for the service. This includes your email address, your IP address and how much traffic you make per month.

Even though Honeygain probably won’t cover your living costs, you might be able to earn just enough to treat yourself with some small purchases such as monthly Netflix, a Spotify subscription etc. The exact amount you will earn depends on several factors that you can read about in our official review.


Sign up for an account using our link or use our special promocode "MONEYGURUS" and get $5 immediately:

After installing Honeygain, we recommend you read the "How much can I earn with Honeygain" part in this post for ways to maximize your earning:




UpVoice - Earn gift cards by watching one ad a day

UpVoice is a browser extension that monitors your ads once a day and pays you for it. It works on multiple sites such as YouTube, Facebook, Amazon, and Twitter.

We recommend just using YouTube and turning off your adblocker and spam clicking videos until you get an ad. Once you receive an ad, just leave the whole ad to play (not entirely necessary, but it's worth doing it just to be safe). If you are one of those people who doesn't use an adblocker, then you can just skip this step and use your browser as normal, making it a completely passive method.

You can only earn points for one ad a day, and you receive 10 points for that ad. This means that you will earn 300 points per month on average. You can cash out once you reach 600 points (= $10), so you will basically be earning $5 a month from doing nothing.

Another great thing is that they use Tremendous (one of the biggest gift card providers) so you can get pretty much any gift card out there!


If you sign up using our link, you get a $5 bonus immediately (300 points). You will then be able to withdraw $10 your first month. If you miss out on this step, you won't receive the extra $5.

These three methods amount to roughly $15 a month which might not sound like much, but believe me, it adds up!

2. GPT (Get Paid To) websites that don't require credit cards to withdraw/register
Earning potential: If you give this method the chance it deserves (and with some dedication) then you can easily bring in a cool $15 - $250 every month.
A lot of websites will pay you to perform various tasks, these are referred to as GPT sites. Most of them, if not all, pay through a combination of PayPal, gift cards, and Bitcoin. The gift cards can be for stores such as Amazon or even for Roblox.

Examples of the tasks/activities on these sites include taking surveys, watching videos, surfing the internet, completing offers, getting cashback when shopping online, playing games, and other such tasks/activities. If you join through some of the invitation links below, you will also earn bonuses when you first sign up. Also please note that the age requirement for all of the sites are 13 years or older.
Here are a few of the best ones:




#1 – Swagbucks
swagbucks logo
Available in: Most countries in the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
Payout methods: PayPal, gift cards.
Sign up bonus: Yes! Using our link, you get a $3 bonus after you earn your first $3 (totaling $6 for you to withdraw).
Short summary:
Swagbucks is no doubt one of the best GPT sites for making money if you are living in the US, UK, Canada, Ireland, and Australia. In terms of members, it's also one of the biggest GPT sites out there, if not the biggest, and for good reason. It is widely known to be very easy to use and has a lot of ways you can earn.

Worth to note is that you can still earn money if you are from India or other countries than the ones mentioned above, but there is not at all the same amount of offers and opportunities, unfortunately. But if you do live in any of those countries mentioned at the beginning, you're in for a treat.

How does the Swagbucks sign up code work?

  1. Click on the "Join Swagbucks" link below to go to the Swagbucks sign up page.
  2. Sign up for free with your email or Facebook account.
  3. Check your inbox as you will receive a confirmation email in order to verify your email.
  4. After confirming your email you can start earning right away by completing tasks, doing surveys, watching videos, or even playing games, and after earning your first 300 Swagbucks a $3 bonus will be credited to your account. You will then be able to withdraw immediately!

#2 – GG2U.org
gg2u.org.png
Available in: More or less worldwide.
Payout methods: PayPal, BTC, Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Google Play, iTunes, Playstation GC, Steam, Target, Walmart, Xbox GC...
Sign up bonus: Yes! New users get $1 for free using our link.
Short summary:
The GG2U website is a bit outdated looking, and it can feel clunky at times, but don't let that fool you. It has some of the highest paying rates and has a few unique offer walls and plenty of survey routers that you rarely see on other sites. The customer support is great as well. Payout Minimum is $7 with no daily cap.

For every 5 cash out requests, you get a Golden Ticket which will give you $1-7. This results in an average 7.8% higher payments if cashing out at the minimum each time.

TIP: If you contact support, you can request to have your payouts issued at the minimum cashout amount rather than for your full balance. This will let you make the most out of the Golden Tickets.

#3 – SerpClix
SerpClix_logo_white_background.png
Available in: More or less worldwide.
Payout methods: PayPal only.
Short summary:
SerpClix is a site where you can get paid to search on Google and open specific links paid for by webmasters to increase their SERP CTR. This is done through their extension, which is available on Firefox and Microsoft Edge.

It's ridiculously easy to get started with SerpClix and they pay you $0.05 to $0.10 for each keyword that you search for and click. I've managed to make about $20 a month consistently using SerpClix, and even upwards of $30 during the summer when I spend a lot of time in front of the PC.

Worth to note, however, is that it can heavily depend on what country you are from. For reference, I know Americans that earn upwards of $60, and our boy @ed has even managed to earn a solid $40-45 a month from the UK.

3. Miscellaneous methods

Some of these methods basically come down to you being creative! Here are a few things you can do:
  • Make designs and sell merchandise
Try Redbubble to sell all kinds of merchandise, or Teespring/YeeTee if you want to sell clothing only.
  • Transcribing/Translating
If you're good at two or more languages you can sign up for translation and/or freelancing sites and get paid to translate text or audio. Transcribing is when you type what you hear. You can get paid surprisingly well for doing this type of work.
  • Social Media Exchange sites
Get paid to follow people/like stuff/retweet stuff etc. Examples: FollowLike/SocialClerks.
  • Captcha Solving
If you have plenty of time, don't mind monotonous labor, and $2-3/day is worth it for you in your country, solve captchas. Usually, you get paid around $0.5 per 1000 captchas solved. This should really be sort of a last resort...

These are in no particular order and I won't go too in-depth on them. Do your own research!
