Everybody needs a few extra bucks now and then. However, we’re not so foolish as to try to make you believe that you’ll earn a living sitting at home doing nothing. There are no apps that can make you that much money. However, we do know of a few that can make you a buck or two here and there. Over time, that can build up to enough to treat yourself. Here are the best money making apps on Android.
Amazon SellerPrice: Free / $0.99 per item sold / $39.99 per monthDOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYAmazon is one of the world’s largest retailers. You can be a part of it if you want to. An Amazon Seller account lets you sell things on the service right alongside every other item. This is a great way to clear out the garage, make a few bucks, or even start a selling business. They let you do it for free. However, you do pay $0.99 for every item you sell. Those who sell tons of items may fair better with their $39.99 per month subscription that omits the $0.99 charge. In any case, this is right up there with eBay when it comes to money making apps. DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
eBayPrice: FreeDOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYLots of people have tons of stuff that are worth some money. eBay can help you turn that stuff into actual money. Pretty much everybody knows how eBay works. You put your stuff up on a listing. People then buy it and you ship it out. You can sell pretty much whatever you want from books and cloths to electronics and even furniture or cars. We recommend selling larger items locally because shipping can be challenging, but otherwise this is where you want to start when selling stuff. It’s definitely among the best money making apps and the most recognizable for sure.DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
EtsyPrice: FreeDOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYMany people are artists, tinkerers, and creators of some sort. People like that can use an online shop like Etsy to sell their various arts and crafts. You can find a variety of stuff there and virtually all of it is handmade, limited edition, or one of a kind. Shop owners can sell whatever they want really. The app itself is called Sell on Etsy. It lets you manage your shop, your orders, and your listings. You can also chat with potential buyers and do other stuff. This is a great way for the artistically inclined to make a few bucks. The app will help them do that.DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
IbottaPrice: FreeDOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYIbotta is a lot like other rebate apps. The basic idea with both apps is the same. You do stuff like go grocery shopping and buy the stuff you were going to anyway. The app helps you earn cash back on those purchases. The process is that you pick out things that you’re going to buy, go buy them, and then verify the purchase. The app then sends you money via Paypal, Venmo, or gift card. Like most, it’s not going to earn you a whole lot of money. However, when used with other money making apps, you can get a pretty penny. It’s worth a shot at least.DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
PayPalPrice: FreeDOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYPaypal is a powerful platform. Most know it because of eBay. However, you can use the platform to run virtually any business. It can accept payments from virtually anywhere and you can use it to manage invoices, payments, and sales from various websites if you want to. There is another app by PayPal called PayPal Business that is made specifically for small business owners. It won’t make you money on its own, but it can help if you have an idea for a business.

Square Point of SalePrice: FreeDOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYSquare Point of Sale is an app that lets you accept credit card payments from people. You’ll need to get a little device that plugs into your phone, but after that, you can swipe cards and collect money. Using this, you can sell pretty much whatever you want pretty much wherever you want. Like Paypal, the app itself won’t generate any money for you. You’ll have to find willing customers. However, the ability to accept money in situations where you normally can’t is helpful. The app is free to download and signing up gets you a free magstrip reader. DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Surveys on the GoPrice: FreeDOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYSurveys on the Go is an app that lets you complete surveys for money. Unlike many where you get points or Google Opinion Rewards, this one pays out in cash. Admittedly, there are only a few surveys available during any given month. Thus, don’t expect to be rolling in dough. However, it’s good for those who just want to earn a few extra bucks here and there. The app itself is a little blandly designed, but it’s easy enough to use. It’s not an absolute must, but it is one of the stable money making apps as long as you don’t expect the moon.
