Even More Ways to Earn 10 Dollars Online
Fiverr is an online platform for freelancers to offer up a service. You do not have to have a specific skill like writing or photography, like some other online platforms.
As a seller on Fiverr, you can sell anything you want for 5 dollars. One drawback is that you get paid through PayPal (which charges you a fee) and Fiverr also takes a percentage, so you will have to complete more than 2 gigs a day to reach your goal of 10 dollars.
However, there are some tasks and things you can charge more than $5 for too. Such as if you do a rush job or you provide extra work above the basic task.
Ibotta will pay you for uploading your receipts from purchases. Basically, you will earn money for buying certain items after you upload your receipt.
