Apps to Make Money Online

Yes, they exist. It is possible for you to make money online simply by downloading a few apps. Regardless of whether you use an iOS or an Android device, there are hundreds of apps out there that can help you make a few extra bucks. However, some of these apps require you to put in a lot of effort, whereas others can pay you for basically doing nothing. Here, we have listed a few apps (e.g. Honeygain) that do not require a lot of input on your end but pay you handsomely for using their service. All of them are legitimate and offer quick payouts.

Capital One Shopping

The first app that we are looking at is Capital One Shopping. The app can be used to buy almost anything you need. However, you will be saving money if you shop using the app, thus making money that you otherwise wouldn’t.

Capital One Shopping not only gives you great deals on all of your shopping needs, but it also rewards you for shopping through the app. These rewards come in the form of points that can then be redeemed for gift cards and other similar rewards.


Honeygain is an app that will pay you to share your internet bandwidth. It has partners that have a need for excess publicly available world wide web to conduct research and access geo-locked content that they wouldn’t be able to access otherwise. You are paid according to the amount of bandwidth that you share. You can add multiple devices to make more money (Honeygain app is available on Android, Windows, iOS, macOS), and you can invite your friends to make money online with Honeygain and make 10% of their lifetime earnings (they also get $5 when signing up with your invitation code).

Setting up Honeygain only takes a few minutes at most. All you need to do is to head to the official website and download Honeygain. After that, simply run the app and wait until you hit the minimum withdrawal limit ($20) to get your money.


Paribus is an app that makes use of the consumer protection laws that exist in most countries. If an item drops in price within a specific amount of time after your purchase, you are entitled to a refund.

Paribus will automatically track all of the purchases you make and make sure that you get a refund in case the aforementioned happens. You do not need to do anything except set up the app and receive the money. Paribus does take a small cut from the refunds, but there are no charges to use the service. Over time, you can make a significant amount of money from Paribus.

Checkout 51

Checkout 51 is another app that helps to make some extra cash. It is somewhat similar to Capital One Shopping, but it functions differently. Instead of offering you cashback and deals, Checkout 51 allows you to search for and save coupons before you shop. You can then use these coupons to get discounts from most major retailers.

While you will be required to put in a little bit of work as you will have to search for coupons, you can save a lot of money in the long run through the app.

Field Agent

From all the apps on this list, Field Agent is an app that requires you to put in the most effort. However, the payout that you can get for that effort is a bit higher than the ones which actually do not require any effort. Therefore you are basically exchanging some of your time for money.

Field Agent essentially gives you missions that you have to complete. These missions will be provided by other people in your area and various businesses. The missions could involve shopping from a specific store or taking a few photos in your vicinity. Completion of these missions will get you cash that you will be able to withdraw to your PayPal account.


The five apps mentioned above will allow you to make a decent amount of money. Three of these apps do not even require you to do anything on your end apart from installing and setting up the app.

From these, our favorite has to be Honeygain. This is an app that literally anyone with an internet connection can use to make money. If you are worried about it hampering your internet speed, then don’t. Honeygain intelligently takes a backseat and only uses the bandwidth that is not being used by any other application. This makes it a must-have for anyone looking for apps to make money online.
