Get Paid To (GPT) sites are websites that allow their users to make money online by completing paid tasks and offers.
Most sites pay through Paypal, Gift Card, or in some cases through check or cryptocurrency.
Completing tasks on GPT sites are a great way to make money online for free, without paying anything! However, you should not expect to make a full time living with any of these sites, as most of these tasks are quite easy and can be completed by just about anybody. They can, however, earn you some side income quite easily.
These tasks include:
- Playing games
- Searching the web
- Taking surveys
- Watching videos
- Shopping at online stores
- Visiting websites
- Signing up to newsletters and websites.
- Completing offers
- Reading paid emails
- Referring members to the site
Which GPT sites are Legit?
When searching for GPT sites to join, make sure to be on the lookout for scams.
If a GPT site offers paid memberships, advertises extremely high earnings, or has no presence on social media, this is a good indication that a GPT site is a scam.
Below is a list of several reputable, well known GPT sites which have been known to be legitimate:
|Swagbucks.com||$3.00||US, UK, CA, and others||10% of earnings||✔️||✔️|
|Earnably.com||$1.00||All (with exceptions)||10%||✔️||✔️|
What tasks are on these sites?
Below is a general list of which tasks and activities are featured on each GPT site (note that tasks other than those listed may be present):
**Quickrewards does have a limited program through Shareasale
***Cashback on casino games, not recommended for earnings
How do GPT sites make their money?
GPT sites make their money through advertising. Various advertisers pay the owners of these sites to provide content in the form of slideshows, videos, search engine ads, and more.
These GPT sites then recruit members to join their sites in order to engage with the advertiser’s content. In return, their members will receive payments in the form of Paypal cash or gift cards.
How much can I expect to earn from GPT sites?
It depends on what tasks you complete.
Offers such as Signups and Trials will probably pay you the highest, as they take relatively little time to complete and pay up to a few dollars per task in some cases.
Shopping through GPT sites earns you cashback for online purchases. Basically, you will receive a percentage of your purchase back in points on the site.
This is accomplished by clicking on their partner links, and then shopping as you usually would. It often takes awhile for the points to credit, depending on the site. Although many GPT sites have this feature, the sites with the best deals and store availability are Ebates (actually an online rebates site) and Swagbucks.
For surveys, you may end up earning roughly 2-5 dollars per hour, although this can increase or decrease depending on what kind of surveys you take. Much of it also depends on what demographic you are in, as often researchers are looking for information from a specific group of people.
Games and Videos
Games and videos probably pay the least. Both rely on advertisements, with ads presented between videos and during games. For most sites, you will most likely earn less than a dollar an hour. In some cases, you might make 10-30 cents.
And even then you will sometimes be limited in how much you can earn on some sites. The best GPT sites for online games, in my opinion, would be InboxDollars, Quickrewards, and Swagbucks. Some sites contain tasks that involve playing games in the offer wall section of their site, but they are not listed as “games” and may involve other tasks as well.
Searching the Web
Searching the web doesn’t pay much, but it is probably the most passive way to make money with GPT sites. Using one of these sites as your default search engine is probably best, as searching the Internet is something we do every day.
Many GPT search engines are powered by Yahoo, and look the same (with a few extra ads). Using Swagbucks (my personal favorite) I usually get two rewarded searches per day. This earns me about 10-15 cents per day, or $3-4 per month.
To find a list of GPT sites that have search features and how much they pay, you can read my previous article on GPT search features.
Another, very attractive way to earn with GPT sites is by referring users to their site. A great way to do this is to tell your friends about the site, to post a banner advertising the site on your blog, or to share your referral link on social media (with a bit of explanation of what the website is about, of course)
Some sites like Grabpoints or iRazoo give you points when your referral has earned a certain amount of points. Others, like Swagbucks, Earnably, or PrizeRebel give you a percentage of your referrals earnings (usually 10-30%). Referrals do not lose any money by signing up under you. You simply earn a percentage of what they earn as a reward for recruiting another member to the site.
iRazoo and Grabpoints also give you points for sharing their site on social media through one of their “share” buttons on the referral page.
The amount of money you earn from your referrals totally depends on where they come from. Most of my referrals signed up through advertising on Discord or by signing up after clicking my referral link on this blog.
The Discord referrals have earned me roughly a third of my total referral earnings, even they make up roughly 60% of my total referrals. My blog referrals, who make up roughly 40% of my referrals, have earned me at two thirds of my total earnings.
This is because my blog referrals typically come from search engines, which means they were searching for information about making money online in the first place. My Discord referrals, on the other hand, heard about the idea through less targeted advertising, and thus would have a lower personal interest in engaging on the site.
