Some of the best money to earn is when you can do it for free. For example, there are a few online companies that pay you to walk around your home, neighborhood, etc. Below, are a few apps we suggest trying out to earn money for going on a walk.
Gigwalk is a great app if you enjoy going on walks in the city and around local businesses. The signup process is pretty straightforward, all you have to do is download the app, enter your profile information, as well as your PayPal information for payouts. Although Gigwalk is free to use, PayPal charges fees for processing your payouts from the company.
To use the app, log in, and when you see a job posted, accept it, and finish the assignments that are sent to you. Some tasks may be easier to complete than others, which is why you can make $3 and up for every task completed successfully.
Postmates is an app-based delivery service that uses a network of couriers that deliver from local stores so that they don't need to offer their delivery services. However, if you live in the city, you can sign up to be a walking courier.
Sign up is relatively easy, all you have to do is create an account, connect your bank account, and get a background check. Once it comes back positive, you'll get a welcome kit in the mail, with an insulated bag and pre-paid card for deliveries.
On the app, click "live" to make yourself available for deliveries. When you get a delivery sent to you, all you have to do is "accept" to start the delivery.
Your earnings accumulate the base pay for the total trip; you also get paid per minute during the delivery, per mile for the distance of the trip, bonuses, tips, and any extra money you get paid during high demand. Fortunately, you get to keep 100 percent of tips, but you only keep 80 percent of every delivery. Usually, Postmates couriers make around $15/hour, and earnings are sent to your bank account four to seven days after you complete the delivery.
