  1. There are so many ways to make money online and you don’t need to be an adult to do them.

    I wish I knew about these ways before I became a young adult so I could have a little more extra income every month.

    It’s only until now I started my website with the goal of eventually turning it into an online business. I should’ve started it a long time ago!

    • That’s so true! I was making money when I was a teenager by working at a movie theater, but I only made $5.15 per hour. I can only imagine how much money I could have made if I was interested in making money online at that time. Oh well, I guess I will just have to make up for it in my thirties. 🙂

  2. I was wondering how people find their first job. Is it possible to work when he or she is just 19? I have gone through a few website while surfing the internet, but most of them are paid ways to go.

    • I think most teens probably find their first jobs locally.

      • No it’s much easier with online sites. Well Kept Wallet is an awesome site I love it😍

  3. I really like these websites, but I’m too young for most of them (I’m 13). For which ages is slice the pie?

    • I did not see anything on their site about an age restriction. However, if I were you, I’d send an email to them at: info at slicethepie.com to find out if you’re old enough.

    • I have the exact same problem. 🙁

      In terms and conditions it mentions that you need to be at least 16 for slicethepie.

      • Yes, some do have age restrictions. You’ll probably have to check out the ones that interest you to see if they have age restrictions in place.

  4. This is a great article! Thank you for sharing Enroll.com as a great opportunity for those to teach others and make money. It’s been a great educational resource for thousands of kids and adults!

    • No problem! I think it’s a good way for those who are well-versed in certain subjects to help others who may be struggling.

  5. I am 15 years old and I am looking for a job online.

    • Then this post is the right one for you! I hope you find something that works. Good luck.

    • Me too. Did you find your own?

  6. If I, for some reason, want to resign from the job, will I be allowed? If yes, then please inform me about its criteria……it will be of great help.

  7. I actually work part time and I’m 16. Even though these are good opportunities that I do use for a little spending cash (my work money goes into savings, a college fund, my school fees, and a car, etc.), there are jobs that hire as young as 14. In person job experience is priceless. You also make a ton more money.

    • Yes, there’s a lot to be said for having job experience. It sounds like you are on the right track!

  8. I want to earn money. Can I do one of these jobs?

    • I have no idea. That depends on a lot of different factors such as your age, experience, and knowledge just for starters. But you can certainly give some of them a shot!

  9. Hi. I’m 14 and I need a job that doesn’t require a certain age and doesn’t require PayPal…can someone help me? I’m from the Philippines…

    • Well, what you do depends partly on what you have the skills to do. Obviously you can run a computer, but online jobs aren’t the only ones out there. You could also clean houses, paint, wash cars, babysit, walk dogs, or any other things someone needs help with and is willing to pay you to do. The thing to do is, keep an open mind and don’t hesitate to ask others if they need help. Then, use your money wisely. Don’t just spend it all. Save and invest some too.

      Here have several posts that may help you. Check out the ones about ways teens can make money or survey sites for kids.

  10. I cannot be registered to slicethepie.com because they were unable to accept reviews from my location at this time. What do I do?

    • You could try emailing them. I found an email address in their terms and conditions section you might try: info @ slicethepie.com

  11. Hello, my name is YaRhonda and I’m 48. I relocated to another state border to assist my oldest daughter with childcare needs. I’m extremely PROUD of her working and majoring in dental school – 👌😂 especially considering she and her husband are separated. I babysit my lovely 2 grandchildren Monday – Saturday, 7:30 am – 10:pm. 😰 I JUST need to be able to provide some decent income for my 15 year old and myself that won’t interfere with assisting my daughter with my grandchildren. PLEASE, can you help with any suggestions or resources? Any help would be much APPRECIATED. 🙏😇

  12. Does any one know if I work online do I have to pay taxes at the end of the year?

    • Yes, you still have to pay income taxes each year even when you work online.

  13. Hey Laurie,

    Every time I come back to this blog, I find out about a bunch of new great ways to make money when you’re a teenager. I love sharing these ideas with others!

    Thanks.

  14. This could be huge. Imagine if people started their FIRE journey in their teens rather than in their late 20’s or 30’s, as so often seems to be the case. The extra decade of compounding could mean that we have people reaching FIRE in their early 20’s. How amazing would that be!

    • It’s true. If I only knew then what I know now…

  15. I want to help my family, but I’m 14 yrs old. Can I apply for a job?

    • You actually don’t have to have a credit card to open a PayPal account according to PayPal. However, you will need to link your PayPal account to at least a bank account. I hope that helps out. But there are lots of ways you can make money and we have several other posts with lots of ideas. Be sure to check them out!

Survey Junkie is the best! This website has really helped me. If it wasn’t for this website I would’ve been lost!

    • I’m glad we could help!

  22. Thank you very much, Deacon.

  23. Chinonso, if you really want to find a trusted website, go to Survey Junkie!

  24. None of these jobs appeal to me because they all have restrictions of age and the only ones I could do, which are Fiverr, Swagbucks, and Survey Junkie, are having problems with their sites.

    • We have other posts on our site about ways kids and teens can make money. One is even about surveys kids can do. You might check them out. Perhaps you’ll find a way to make money that works for you.

  25. I love this article. But, I am 17 years old and Etsy will not let me continue with my checking account because I am not 18 yet.

    • According to Etsy, you can with your parent’s permission. You might check into that if you still want to use it. There may be a way around it.

  26. I want to get a job as an online tutor. What should I do for that?

    • You could advertise on bulletin boards at colleges near you. You might also drop your name and contact information with the office of nearby schools. Advertising online is another great way to get your name out there. Additionally, you could offer to help a couple of students pro bono to get their recommendations to other students. Always ask for referrals to help spread the word that you are willing to help students who are in need of it. I wish you success.

  27. Can a teenager sign up for PayPal?

    • It is my understanding that teenager’s can’t sign legally up for Paypal.

  28. Is there any other way for teenagers to get paid without a PayPal account? I’m 15 so I still can’t make my own account.

    • Some sites will pay you by check if you do not have a PayPal account. Check out their policies, terms and conditions, or FAQ’s or ask them directly through their contact information on the site to find out if they will pay by check. I wish you luck!

  29. I’m from the Philippines and I’m 15. Is there a job that doesn’t require PayPal?

    • There are some sites that will pay you by check. Take a close look at the ones you are interested in to see if you can find one that will pay you in another way. I wish you luck!

  33. Hello. I’m 16 and I need an online job. My skills involve web design, art, gaming, and programming skills. I’m basically good with computers, but can I get an online job as a web developer(frontend)? Also, does my country matter?

  34. I’m 16 and I know how to develop websites and do Photoshop graphics design. Can I make money doing that?

    • I don’t see why not! You could set up your own website and then advertise through word of mouth, Pinterest, and Facebook. Keep in mind you can develop websites but you can also maintain them for a certain monthly fee. This gives you guaranteed monthly income.

  35. Hello, I’m looking for an online job. I’m 18 and not sure if any of these websites have anything I’m interested in. If you have to pay to apply, then I can’t pay a fee to start working. Every website I look into has a fee to it, and you can’t work unless you pay the fee first. How do I get a job I’m interested in and don’t have to pay a fee?

  44. So i just turned 17 years a few days ago. However im still concerned about the currency, because i see dollars. I am from South Africa, so does it exclude me in any manner or can i still apply for any of the jobs and start earning too?

    • Some of these websites might be available in your country! Check out the sites and see if they have a FAQ section or a site map that shows where they are available so you can see if they make money too! Best of luck!

  45. These are some great ideas to make some extra money but unless you’re 18 you can’t open a Paypal account, so most of these aren’t even applicable to teenagers. I also noticed one of these options mentioned your parents opening an account for you but realistically that doesn’t really work because technically wouldn’t you be working under your parents name? Then it’s like you’re not even working at all, there are no records of it. Is it possible to make a list like this that actually is achievable for teens? Companies that don’t only use Paypal?

    • A lot of these jobs are more for the purpose of making extra money! And even if there’s not a financial record of it because you have a PayPal through your parent’s name, you can still list jobs on a resume or another application very easily and still have a solid work record. These are all very realistic and achievable options for teens to make money and even keep a work record. Best of luck!

  46. I seriously want to make some extra cash for my studies

  47. I really wish and pray I could get a job to help me support my accademic carear
