How To Make Extra Money Online From Home In The UK

This post may contain affiliate links. If you choose to purchase something through one of my links, I will earn a small commission at no extra cost to you.

I want to share with you some of the ways you can make money online in the UK, working from home.

As someone who lives in the UK, the methods I share will be ones that I’ve personally used myself to make money online, as well as sites that are popular, that others have used to make money online.

Some of the methods I mention pay in $ dollars, therefore they can also be used by non-UK citizens. (Note: You can still cash out from sites that pay in dollars if you live in the UK). 

So, whether you’re looking to make some extra money from home, or a way to build a full-time income, here’s how to make extra money online from home in the UK. I’m sure you’ll find a few new methods that will work well for you. 

 

If you continue reading until the end, I’ll share with you the method that made me £500+ in the 2 months as a complete beginner, and is making some people up to £2000 monthly.  If you get started today you could earn up to £45 with a free trial.

 

How To make extra money online from home in the uk

 

 

Test websites/Mobile Apps:


Whatusersdo:

Whatusersdo is a site that lets you earn money for testing websites. Payment is made through Paypal, and it takes only 5-10 minutes to sign up. If you sign up, you can enter my referral code: 186584

Price to Join: Free

Earning Potential:

  • £5 website test (as of December 2016) – usually takes up to 20 minutes, but this may vary.

Other available countries: US, China, France, Germany and Netherlands

 

Usertesting:

Usertesting is my personal favourite user testing website. At the time of writing, I have made $219 (approx £153) since joining, and I am still able to earn $10-$15 regularly. They pay via Paypal, and it’s free to join. You can start getting tests right away.

Price to Join: Free

Earning Potential:

  • $3 for short tests – usually take 5 mins
  • $10 per website test – usually takes 10-20 minutes
  • $15 per mobile/smartphone test – usually takes 10-20 minutes

 

Ferpection:

Ferpection is a site I came across a little while ago, and it is a French-based user testing website. I’ve currently made 50 euros (approx £40). Most tests are carried out using your mobile device, and you take screenshots of the site according to the task, then upload the screenshots with your review of your experience. You do not need to have a microphone for this test, this can all be done using your mobile device.

You get paid at the end of each month, usually the last Friday, if your balance is £20+. I’ve already been able to cash out £25 to my PayPal account.

I don’t use this site as often as the others, but it’s still a nice way to earn some additional income from time to time.

Price to Join: Free

Earning Potential:

  • 5-10 euros per test, takes up to 20 minutes

Paid Surveys:


MintVine:

Mintvine is my personal favourite survey site online. They are a relatively new survey site, and I am still quite new to the site. I have already cashed out $10.21 and have over $8 so far. (See my review + payment proof here)

There are multiple ways to earn some points, and once you reach 1000 points you are able to cash out $10. You can also check out my video review on YouTube. You can even get points if you don’t qualify for a survey. It doesn’t happen all the time but I think it’s nice that you can get rewarded for that.

Price to Join: Free

Earning Potential:

  • 1000 points = $10. Payment through PayPal, or can exchange into gift cards. (Paypal payout can take a little while, mine took over 1 week, but it does pay)

 

Prolific Academic:

"<yoastmark

Prolific Academic is a survey site that is based on academic research. Academics, with a valid university email address,  give you their research for users like you to participate in and get paid. It’s free to sign up, and it has a low payment threshold of £5, which doesn’t take too long to reach. You get emails sent to you when new tests become available. I haven’t been given a survey that I didn’t qualify for, which is a nice relief compared to other survey sites.

At the time of writing I have already earned £6.20, and if you wait until you reach £20, then you avoid any PayPal fees. (see my review + payment proof here)

Price to Join: Free

Earning Potential:

  • So far I’ve seen survey payments range from £0.50 to £1.00 per survey (Update: You can now earn up to £4 per survey)

 

InboxPounds:

There are many ways to get paid with InboxPounds, and they include

  • Paid surveys
  • Get paid to read emails
  • Get paid to search
  • Completing tasks
  • Cash offers
  • …to name a few
Who would have thought it?...You can actually get paid to read emails! Click To Tweet

The emails get sent to your inbox, and when you click “Confirm the paid email”, you’ll get paid. I’ve noticed that the payment is £0.01 per email…but if you complete the offer advertised in the email you can also get paid for that. So far I’ve seen some offers up to £4. You can also get paid to search online using Inbox Pounds as your search engine. You need to have £20 in order to cash out, and you get paid via cheque.

Price to Join: Free

Earning Potential:

  • Very low in my opinion, you make more if you spend time doing the surveys and offers, but I personally like to spend my time on other make money opportunities. However, it is nice to get paid to read emails and search online, and it requires very little work. So far I’ve seen up to 4 emails a day, sometimes it can be more. I have yet to cash out, so I’m not sure how long or how simple the process is, but once I do cash out I will do an update.

 

There is also a US version called InboxDollars which is the essentially the same thing, with a cash out threshold of $30

Selling Products Online


eBay:

I’ve been selling on eBay for over 1.5 years, and in that time I’ve made £6000+ in sales (this isn’t taking into account the cost of shipping and eBay’s fees), and within 1 year I earned Top Rated Seller status. At first, I was selling things on the side and then started turning it into a part-time income.

It’s pretty easy to get started, you don’t need any initial costs, and you can set up a free account here now. You can start by selling used or unwanted items around your house, and once you generate enough you can think about buying and reselling products. I use Aliexpress, DHgate, and Alibaba to purchase my stock to resell. Overall, I prefer Aliexpress, as they have a low minimum order quantity (MOQ), which means you can order in small amounts if you’re on a budget, and sometimes the prices of products you add to your basket or wishlist can be reduced, so you get them at a sale price. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re new to selling on eBay.

Earning Potential:

  • There’s no limit to how much you earn
  • When I started with eBay, I made money within the first few hours of listing my product. So if you’re lucky you could make money today from eBay. When putting the cost of your product think about eBay fees and postage costs.
  • I recommended following  Andrew Minalto for very useful tips about selling on eBay.

 

Amazon:

This platform is better for selling new products, however, I have made money selling used items too. It’s free and easy to sign up. When pricing your items, Amazon shows you how much the seller fees will be, and how much you can expect to make, which is very handy, so you don’t have to do it all manually. As a new seller, you are restricted from selling some products, such as perfumes, but there are still other products you can sell, and once you become more established, you’ll be able to sell more items. One other advantage is that you don’t have to write descriptions for your item if it’s new, as it’s already available on Amazon. You can also source products to resell from Aliexpress, DHgate, and Alibaba.

Earning Potential:

  • There’s no limit to how much you can earn
  • You can make it a part-time or full-time income

 

Etsy:

I personally don’t have much experience selling on Etsy, but I know there are people who are making a lot of money with it. It’s great if you’re good at arts and crafts, and you can sell your creations on there. Things you can create to sell on Etsy include:

  • Jewellery
  • Cards
  • Home decor
  • …to name a few

Earning Potential:

  • There’s no limit to how much you can earn
  • Can make it a part-time or full-time income

Affiliate Marketing:


Affiliate Marketing is basically a method of promoting other people’s products and receiving a commission for a sale that is made.

Anyone can get started with affiliate marketing and it doesn’t require any start-up costs. In order to really do well with affiliate marketing you’ll need:

  • A website
  • Affiliate products
  • Training

My recommended training for starting with affiliate marketing is Wealthy Affiliate (see review). They offer the training you need to get started, and it’s free to join. You can sign up as a free member here, and if you like what you see you can upgrade to premium membership. The great thing is that you can remain a free member as long as you like. But if you’re really serious about making money with affiliate marketing I would encourage you to upgrade. Either way, both options are available.

With a free account you get:

  • 2 FREE websites
  • Training
  • and help from the Wealthy Affiliate online community

These are very helpful for when you’re just starting out.

Earning Potential:

  • There’s no limit to how much you can earn
  • There are multiple affiliate programs to choose from, therefore, multiple ways to earn affiliate income online

Earn Cashback Online


TopCashBack:

"<yoastmark

TopCashBack is my favourite cashback site. A site like this basically allows you to get earn some money back when you shop online. I use it for my online purchases. You can also even earn cashback on some free offers which is nice. If you download the TopCashBack notifier, you can get a pop-up notification whenever you visit a site that is offering cashback, therefore, you don’t need to manually remember to check your cashback account.

 

Price to Join: Free

Earning Potential: 

  • Depends on how much online shopping you do.

 

 

Quidco:

Quidco is another popular cashback site in the UK. I usually look here if I can’t find someone on TopCashBack, but most of the time I can. I haven’t used this site much, but I know many people do, and earn a lot.

Price to Join: Free

Earning Potential:

  • Depends on how much online shopping you do.

 

For Those in the US: You can check out Ebates, which is also a cashback site available to US citizens.

Matched Betting

Matched Betting is a technique that involves taking advantage of bookmaker offers in order to make a guaranteed profit. So in essence, you are betting on all outcomes of a sporting event, so that no matter what happens, you make a profit. It is a legitimate and genuine way to make money online, which has even been suggested by MSE and Save the Student (which is where I actually first found out about Matched Betting.)

 

 

With Matched Betting, I have been able to make £500+ in over 2 months. There are people who are able to make £1000-£2000 a month with this. I currently do this on the side, and you can get started with as little as £50. The higher you start with the more money you’ll make, but if you’re a complete beginner, and still unsure I’d recommend starting with a minimum of £50-100.

Please feel free to check out My Matched Betting Experience blog for more information about Matched Betting, and be sure to check out the Profit Accumulator review, which is my recommended program for anyone who is a beginner and wants to have a step by step guide to follow, with video and written tutorials. With the Profit Accumulator free trial, you can earn up to £45.

I made £35 overall with my free trial, of which £11 was made in my first 24 hours. Also, the money you make with Matched Betting is tax-free!

 

Price to Join:

  • Profit Accumulator has a free trial offer.
  • But you need a minimum of £50 to get started with Matched Betting

Earning potential:

  • £200-1000/month
  • But some people are making up to £2000/month

Wow. Sounds like you have the whole affiliate marketing gig all wrapped up here. Some really great advice and some insightful information. I love the site aesthetics too…. nice and clean and easy to navigate. And some very inspirational info. on what you made from day 1. I’ll also be looking into InBoxPounds – that sounds great – thanks for that 🙂

    Hi Sean, thanks for commenting, and thank you for your feedback on my site. I really appreciate it.

    Affiliate Marketing and Matched Betting are definitely my favourite ways to earn online. And the other options are great for supplementing my income. Inbox pounds is definitely a side income earner. I wouldn’t really recommend spending too much time on it, but if you can work on it like 30-60 minutes or so, a day I’m sure you’ll be able to cash out in a shorter period of time. I’d love to hear how you get on with the site.

    All the best!

I didn’t realise there were so many different ways to make money on line – the user testing sounds interesting but payment seems limited. Sounds like Affiliate Marketting is the best way to go if you have an expertise in something that you enjoy sharing. Thanks for sharing all your research.

    Hi Sarah. Thanks for commenting. I really enjoy usertesting.com, although the money doesn’t come as often as I would like, I find it fun, and if you combine it with other user testing websites, it can be a nice extra side income. And I agree about Affiliate marketing, it is definitely one of the best ways to make money online. If you have a passion you can turn it into a business via affiliate marketing, and that’s one of my favourite things about it. Wishing you all the best.
