Earning money online is a great way to either boost your income, or it can even lead to being able to work from home completely! It is very exciting and there are plenty of opportunities out there to earn some extra money. However, finding opportunities that are open to people who are under 18 years old can be difficult. I have compiled a list of 10 places where you can earn extra cash when you are under 18 years old.
ClixSense – over 16 years old
At ClixSense you can get paid for viewing adverts, completing surveys, taking up offers and completing short tasks. You can choose to upgrade your membership for just $17 a year – upgrading gives you some fantastic benefits including more chances to earn cash and a higher referral commission. Get paid via Paypal once your account hits $8, or $6 if you are a premium member.
Fiverr – over 13 years old
At Fiverr you can earn money for just about anything! You create a “gig” which includes a service you can provide – perhaps commenting on 10 blogs, advertising on your social media, creating a YouTube video intro, writing a short article – the possibilities are endless! Each gig should be priced at $5 (around £3.50).
GlobalTestMarket – over 14 years old
Global Test Market is a survey website that lets you earn “Market Points” for completing surveys. These Market Points can then be used to redeem against a variety of rewards, including Amazon vouchers, Paypal and even Argos vouchers. You can also earn extra Market Points for referring your friends.
iPoll – over 14 years old
iPoll is both a smart phone app and a survey website that pays out in a variety of ways. You can complete missions using your smart phone or complete surveys from the comfort of your own home and earn decent cash.
MintVine – over 13 old (with parental consent)
MintVine is a great survey site that let's you cash out once you reach just $10. Alongside surveys there are also tasks you can complete to boost your earnings and you also make extra money for referring your friends.
MySurvey – 16 years old and over
MySurvey is a survey website that pays out once you reach just £3. Surveys tend to pay around 50 – 250 points. You can redeem your points for Amazon vouchers or Paypal cash.
Swagbucks – over 13 years old
Swagbucks is a great place to earn cash from watching videos, playing games, completing surveys and much more. You can easily expect to make £15+ a month from Swagbucks and have it paid in Paypal cash or Amazon vouchers – the Amazon vouchers are much better value than cash from Swagbucks.
Slice The Pie – over 17 years old
Slice The Pie pays you for reviewing music, fashion items and more. Every review needs to be at least 60 words long, with a higher rating given for providing more detailed reviews. Payout is made once you reach $10 (around £7) and you can refer friends to boost your earnings.

Survey Savvy is an American based survey website that allows users over the age of 13 to join and complete surveys. You can also download their software, SavvyConnect, to increase your chances of earning. Payment is made via cheque and can take anything from 4 – 12 weeks to arrive – remember that most banks charge a fee for depositing cheques in a different currency, so you may find that completing surveys with Survey Savvy isn't worth your time.
