Many of us have Paypal accounts and feel that they are a great way to get paid in a safe and secure way. There is no information shared between customers apart from an email address which means that bank details or credit card details are all kept safe and secure. If we want to make money online it can be a really good option especially if we are dealing with people or sites that we do not know. The great thing is that there are many different ways that you can make money online and get paid through Paypal.

  • Ebay and other sales sites – Paypal was paired up with ebay almost as soon as it got started. It was a secure way to pay people without having to post cheques or cash in the post or the seller having to have facilities for processing credit card transactions. This means that many people still associate the two companies together. Now though, ebay is also associated with other sites where you can sell thing. This means that if you do have things to sell, then you can find a selection of different sites where you will be able to list them and receive payment through Paypal.
  • Survey, PTC and similar sites – there are lots of sites where can earn small amounts of money by doing things like completing surveys, clicking adverts to get paid or getting paid to receive and read emails. Although these do not pay a massive amount ofmoney, they can be a good way to earn a bit extra by doing some fun things. If you like filling out surveys an sharing your view on things, viewing adverts or videos or reading emails, then this could be a good way for you to earn some money.
  • Freelance work – many people offer opportunities to do freelance work online. The jobs can vary massively but many employers will pay by Paypal. This is because it is secure but also because it can cope with currency exchanging and so if you do not live in the same region as each other you can still easily pay them. there is a charge associated with exchanging currency, in the same way that there is in a bank or post office but it is very convenient and be exchanged immediately and then withdrawn or spent.
  • Small jobs – there are now a selection of sites where you can pick up very small jobs. These pay just small amounts of money but they can be really useful for anyone who only has a small amount of time or who gets daunted by the idea of doing large chunks of work. They tend to pay out by Paypal although the site will take a small commission on each of the jobs that you have done.

This is just a few of the ways that you can make money online and get paid through Paypal. There are lots of opportunities to earn online and many of them pay by Paypal because it is such a trusted system.
