Thanks to the internet, there is an endless number of ways to make money online. Here are just 20 ways you can make some extra money on the side.

Making more money could likely solve a lot of your problems. In the past, we’ve talked about how teens can make money, but for those of us who are a little older, we need something a little more sophisticated than the $10 that comes from mowing lawns.

Luckily, in the age of the internet, making extra money (or your whole paycheck) online is incredibly easy if you know where to look.

Here are 21 ways to make (and save money) online:

  1. Become a virtual assistant

Virtual assistants can make up to $16 an hour. You can work part time or full time, and your schedule can be relatively flexible, as long as it lines up with whomever you’re working for.

  1. Sell or rent your belongings

This could mean selling a few things here and there on Ebay, running a full-fledged online store, or renting out your home (okay, so that’s not entirely online, but it starts out there).

Ebay
Ebay may seem old school, what with Amazon and Etsy, but selling stuff you don’t need is a great way to make extra cash.

You can make a free account, but you’ll be limited to how much you can sell. If you want to sell more than 50 items a month online, you’ll need to sign-up for one of Ebay’s subscriptions.

Starter: $4.95/ mo with annual subscription
Basic: $21.95/ mo with annual subscription
Premium: $59.95/ mo with annual subscription
Anchor: $299.95/ mo with annual subscription
Enterprise: $2,999.95/ mo with annual subscription
Each comes with different selling caps, and the higher the subscription, the lower the fees.

Etsy
Etsy’s setup is a lot more satisfying than Ebay and even Amazon. But, just like Ebay and Amazon, Etsy does have some fees to consider if you’re planning on just casually selling. The fee schedule goes as follows:

$0.20 USD for each item that you list for sale
When you make a sale you’ll be charged a transaction fee of 3.5 percent of the price you display for each listing
Craigslist
If you want to go real old-school, you can sell your items on Craigslist. While there’s a lot that can go wrong on Craigslist, it’s still one of the most used sites—mostly because it’s free.

Sell your text books
Textbooks are expensive—too expensive for most. So, if you have old textbooks you’re never going to look at again—or never looked at in the first place—selling them can make you back some of the money you had to spend.

If you buy your books from Barnes and Noble, they make it easy to sell them back at the end of the year!

Rent your home on Airbnb
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of Airbnb. If you have an extra room, or even a whole house you’re willing to rent out, you could earn a hefty side income.

There’s a cost when it comes to listing on Airbnb, You’ll be charged three percent of the booking total. Since you can set prices, however, you’ll still have quite a bit of control over how much you can make as an Airbnb host.

  1. Become a freelancer

If you have a talent, chances are, you can sell your skill. Whether you’re a writer, artist, graphic designer, photographer, etc., there’s a freelance gig for you. Let’s cover a few possible freelance angles for you to take.

Freelance writing
It’s easier than ever to become a freelance writer (all of our writers at Money Under 30 are freelancers). With that being said, if you’re just starting out it can be difficult to find a writing job that will pay you more than pennies.

We have advice here, on how to actually get hired for a freelance job. Also, a good place to start looking is Fiverr. It’s called Fiverr, because most people would charge just $5 for their services—some people still do that, others charge a lot more.

Teach online
If you like to teach and have some free time, consider teaching English as a second language. VIPkid is an excellent service that connects North American teachers and tutors with students around the world for one-on-one English lessons.

The application process is rigorous, but you could make between $14 and $22 an hour—not necessarily the most competitive, but still decent.

Do small tasks
If you’re not prone to creativity, you can still make money online by offering your handyman (or woman) services on TaskRabbit.

Many of the tasks advertised on TaskRabbit involve tasks such as:

Putting furniture together
Moving
Running errands
Picking up groceries
Search the gigs section of Craigslist
Along with TaskRabbit, you can search the “gigs” section on Craigslist. Many of the gigs are hoaxes, but there are some that are legit. There are gigs that involve computer skills, writing skills, general labor, cleaning, etc.
