If you want to read more about a particular program, we’ve included a link to our full review below each one that has been covered.

If there isn’t a link, then we have yet to review the program and have less information.

The higher-paying sites also tend to be the ones with the additional review links, mostly in the top 20.

See one that’s not on the list and should be?

Let us know in the comments below.

1. Swagbucks

When it comes to short task websites, Swagbucks is one of the most popular sites in the world.

This is mainly because of the wide variety of tasks you can complete as well as their great payout rate.

Earn points completing surveys, watching videos, shopping online, playing games and even surfing the web.

Swagbucks also has an app helping you earn cash on the go.

Points you earn can be converted to gift cards or PayPal withdrawals.

Not only that, but the videos you watch play automatically from one to the next, meaning all you have to do is press play and kick back and relax.

This is where I find myself making the most money.

2. Survey Junkie

While this site only focuses on the short task of paying surveys, we couldn’t pass it up.

Most of the surveys you find on Survey Junkie are low-paying, but if you stick to the higher-paying ones you can easily earn at a rate of $12/hour or more.

The only downside is that there aren’t enough of the higher-paying surveys to go around.

Log-in once a day to see if there’s a survey available that’s worth your time.

You get a 25 point bonus once you fill-out your new member profile.

3. MyPoints

MyPoints is mostly known as a cash back shopping portal, but they also pay you to complete tasks online such as watching videos, completing surveys and playing games.

The best part?

When you make your first qualifying purchase online, you get a $10 bonus plus the cash back you’d normally receive.

Right now you can get 5.4% back at Walmart, much higher than most cash back sites.

4. FusionCash

You automatically receive $5 for signing-up as a new user with FusionCash.

From there, earn even more cash by completing small tasks such as watching videos, taking surveys, making calls or completing free trial offers.

On some offers, you can make as much as $15 per task.

While not all of the tasks are worthwhile, some of them have an incredibly high payout rate.

With sites like this, scamming is always a concern but Fusion Cash is actually a BBB-certified business.

5. ShopKick

Want to earn some cash on the go while shopping?

If you have a smartphone, you can earn points simply visiting stores.

The ShopKick app compensates you for scanning products in stores, walking into stores, submitting receipts, linking your credit card, referring friends and for making certain purchases.

You earn points in the form of “kicks” which can be exchanged for gift cards.

Earn a 250 kick bonus when you sign-up as a new user.

6. Panda Research

The great thing about Panda Research is that you automatically get a $3 sign-up bonus as a new user. With this small task site, earn cash reading emails, filling-out surveys, clipping coupons completing free-trial offers and referring friends.

While their site interface isn’t the cleanest, don’t let that fool you. Compared to the other sites on this list Panda Research can make you some pretty decent money. Reading emails is the best way to earn since little effort is required.

7. EarnCrypto

This is a fairly new small task site that comes with a small twist compared to the others on the list. Instead of earning cash for small tasks, you earn cryptocurrencies instead.

When you sign-up, you get to choose from hundreds of coins to be your main cryptocurrency. This can be Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum, etc. Once you complete a task, your rewards will be given in your chosen cryptocurrency.

Watching videos is one of the easiest ways to earn with this site since you can leave them playing repeatedly without any need to hit a next button. In this sense, it’s essentially a passive income as long as you’re willing to leave your computer running.

8. Survey Club

SurveyClub focuses on a specific area: completing surveys and research studies in your area. Most of the surveys that you find on SurveyClub are online, but they also connect you to research studies in your area.

If you’re chosen for a research study, most of the time the payout will be quite decent since you actually have to physically go to that location. Some of the research studies in your area can also be taken online.

9. Vindale Research

Vindale Research is another small task site that only primarily focuses on surveys. What I love about their site is that they give you a $2 bonus upon registration and that sometimes you can take the same survey multiple times per day.

Occasionally they’ll throw in a survey that can earn you up to $50, but these ones are quite rare and usually take a few hours to complete. I find that in general, Vindale Research is one of the better sites when it comes to just taking surveys.

10. Prize Rebel

Prize Rebel is quickly becoming one of the better short task sites out there due to their great earnings. They have a wide selection of offers and receive great reviews from their users.

I usually find that watching videos and taking surveys are some of the best ways to earn points. Not only that, but they have a great referral program that gives you 10% of all of your friends’ earnings.

11. InboxDollars

InboxDollars is another site that’s similar to the ever-popular SwagBucks. Earn cash for completing tasks online such as watching videos, taking surveys, shopping online, surfing the web or completing free trial offers. Not only that, but for every friend you refer, you get 10% of all their earnings. In terms of micro task sites, this is definitely one of the more popular ones.

12. CashCrate

By completing offers, working on tasks, watching videos, taking surveys, and shopping using the portal provided, you will earn money over time. Although some tasks will go for a few cents, there are others that will pay you up to as much as $30. As soon as you join, you will receive a $1 reward.

I typically find that most of the money is either made from watching videos. You will receive about 8 surveys on a daily basis, and they all take up a short amount of time, paying anywhere from $.50 cents to $2 USD.

13. Earning Station

Earning Station is a great way to get paid for something you to do tasks that you already do – watch videos, take surveys, shop, clip coupons and play games online. Each activity you complete will award you a certain amount of Station Dollars that can be exchanged for gift cards or direct cash payouts. This is the site that’s most similar to Swagbucks, and you can typically earn the most by watching videos and completing surveys.

14. Points2Shop

As the name suggests, you can earn rewards as you shop online. However, there is also another side to this site that includes taking surveys and watching numerous videos in order to earn money. Definitely a must to add on to your list for those just getting into small task sites.

Read Our Full Guide to Points2Shop

15. GrabPoints

What once started out as a small mobile app, GrabBucks has now expanded to a desktop version as well. Earn points watching videos, completing surveys, and most importantly, downloading apps. One download can earn you anywhere between $.50 to $1, and most of the time all you have to do is open the app once to get rewarded.

Read Our Full Guide to GrabPoints

16. Prolific Academic

When it comes to earning straight-up cash for completing research studies online, Prolific Academic is where it gets serious. Easily earn a few extra dollars within just a few minutes time.

The only downside? There aren’t that many studies available for you to constantly earn off of this site. However, what I can say is that when you do earn, you earn quite well.

17. KashKick

KashKick is one of the newer kids on the block when it comes to earning money through short tasks. Earn free cash by answering polls, filling out surveys, watching videos, completing free-trial offers and more.

The downside with this site? They don’t really have many offers since the site is fairly new, but hopefully they’ll be expanding soon.

18. ClickWorker

ClickWorker is one of the highest-paying and most up-and-coming sites in this field. Although it is based in Germany, there is an English section and you will find micro tasks that need completing. In terms of the entry requirements, it’s fair to say that ClickWorker is strict in that you will need to pass entry tests and even provide tax information. However, once you get in it’s totally worth it. It’s not uncommon to earn $15 per hour.

Read Our Full Guide to ClickWorker

19. Earnably

Earnably is a little bit different compared to your typical small task site. While they do have plenty of tasks available, their main intention is to pay you for downloading apps. They have a great payout rate with an excellent referral program. You can also get paid to take surveys, watch videos, listen to the radio, complete free offers and more. It’s not uncommon to earn $15 per hour when you’re first starting and there’s plenty of offers available.

20. Keep Rewarding

This is also another great site for international users since you can use it from anywhere in the world. Get paid to click on ads, shop online, watch videos, take surveys and refer friends. The payout isn’t as high as other sites, but the earnings are still quite good, especially for an international site.

21. GiftHulk

GiftHulk is another popular small task site that has been on the market for a while. In fact, the tasks are fun, and it’s also quite similar to Swagbucks. Earn cash completing tasks such as watching videos, filling out surveys, taking polls, playing games, surfing the internet and referring friends. They never seem to run out of offers.

Read Our Full Guide to GiftHulk

22. CoinBucks

Last site on this list is CoinBucks. Get paid to complete free offers such as downloading apps, filling out surveys, completing free-trial offers and more. Most of the money you’ll be making from this online short task site will come from downloading apps. Once you install them, most of the time the only thing you have to do is open them once to earn your cash.

Read Our Full Guide to CoinBucks

23. InstaGC

This site is a lot like GiftHulk, but the payout isn’t quite as high and the offers not quite as abundant. Still, you can earn some great cash completing surveys, watching videos, completing free offers and referring friends. Put some effort into it and you can easily earn an extra $10 per day.

Read Our Full Guide to InstaGC

24. Get-Paid

Get-Paid is another great addition to your small task online site list. Get paid to complete surveys, watch videos, refer friends, click ads and complete free trial offers. Level up and make it easier to earn points.

25. Fiverr

Do you have a skill or something you’re particularly good at? No matter how small it is, you can get paid $5 for it. For example, make a quick logo and get $5. Translate 300 words and get $5. You can even charge $10 for delivering it within 24 hours. Fiverr is a website where you can sell any task for $5 or more.

26. DailyRewards

DailyRewards is a site that’s almost identical to InboxDollars. Get paid to complete tasks online such as taking surveys, playing games, completing free trial offers, watching videos and referring friends. Not only that, but you also get a $5 bonus when you register as a new user. You need a minimum of $30 to cash out.

Read Our Full Guide to DailyRewards

27. Amazon Mechanical Turk (mTurk)

Nowadays, mTurk sees thousands of different companies come calling to get various jobs done. Although there is a high amount of users on the platform, there are some good paying jobs on offer to supplement your income. If you are serious about making money and have dedicated a certain amount of time to do tasks each day or week, this could be the one for you.

28. CrowdTap

CrowdTap pays you to share your opinions and to create high quality content. Get the chance to connect with top brands and receive gift cards, free samples and more in exchange. This one also doesn’t have many users, so you should have a great chance at claiming the task that you want.

29. Click N’ Work

This site gives you the chance to perform various data entry tasks and get paid for it. While some sites require you to leave the house, Click N Work allows you to stay at home and earn from wherever you wish. As a free market, the prices can often fluctuate from task to task for the same amount of work, so you will need to seek out the best opportunities.

30. CrowdSource

Much like Fiverr, CrowdSource is another well-trusted site and you will earn good money for writing and editing tasks. If you have a particular skill, this is a great website for you since there are some quite tough entry tests that you have to complete. For this reason, only the most-skilled users can work on the site, making clients trust the work more than perhaps other sites.

31. UserTesting

When companies make a new website they need people to test it to ensure that there aren’t any bugs. On UserTesting, you can sign up and see a list of sites that need assessing. As long as you record yourself (video and audio) testing the website, you can send this in and get paid around $10 – $15 depending on whether you choose a full site test or mobile site test.

32. TaskRabbit

TaskRabbit is another one of those short task sites that has been around for a while. Moving away from online tasks, this site is essentially a hub for all local jobs in your area that you can partake in. For example, somebody may place an ad to put up a shelf, and you can reply to earn a little money.

33. StuffPoints

StuffPoints is another website that pays you to complete a wide variety of tasks. Earn money taking surveys, watching videos installing apps, taking polls and more. Refer friends and get 15% of their earnings for life. Each time you complete a task, you earn points that can be exchanged for gift cards.

Read our Full StuffPoints Guide

34. MicroWorkers

With MicroWorkers, you can complete incredibly simple tasks to earn money. There is also the added benefit of setting up campaigns as well as replying to others’ campaigns in order to make the most of your time on the site.

35. CallSource

Heading off into a slightly different market, there are many sites or platforms that allow you to earn money in return of reviewing phone calls. Currently, CallSource is one of the biggest producers of this work and it will normally require a contractor position. Although there are many benefits, one of the biggest disadvantages of this site is that the work can be inconsistent which makes it hard to rely on for a part-time gig.

36. Humantic

Humanity also pays you for reviewing and receiving phone calls. As long as you have a phone, you can work from the comfort of your own home. As soon as you hit $10 in your account, you can withdraw funds to your PayPal account.

37. Reynolds & Reynolds

Similar to the previous two options, Reynolds & Reynolds will have you categorizing phone calls for money. As an official title, you will be a ‘call analyst.’ You will have to go through an interview process to be chosen for this one.

38. Gift Hunter Club

This site pays you to complete tasks that you most likely already complete on a daily basis. This includes watching videos, taking surveys, listening to the radio, completing free trial offers and by referring friends.

39. Just Park

Although this one may not be available to everyone, it’s certainly a unique way to earn some extra cash. Just Park allows you to rent empty parking spots in exchange for cash. This is especially great for crowded cities.

40. Coupon Chief

Nowadays, we are always looking for good deals and coupons in order to save money. On Coupon Chief, you can upload a coupon for a store and then earn 2% commission from each sale that comes as a result. If you get this right and use the site wisely, this can create a good amount of side income, somewhat passive as well.

41. ClixSense

This site has one of the most abundant and unique ways of earning cash. Like the name suggests, you get paid to click things. You get paid to click ads, fill out surveys, watch videos, refer friends, play games and more. The payout isn’t very high, but the tasks are incredibly easy to complete.

Read Our Full Guide to ClixSense

42. Offer Nation

Offer Nation offers a wide range of tasks from completing surveys, completing paid trials and more. One of the great things about this site is that they have different daily offers that you can complete every day. They have an incredibly high referral payout, offering 25% of each friend you refer.

43. BitcoinGet

Want to earn Bitcoin instead? BitcoinGet pays you in Bitcoin for completing surveys, shopping online, completing offers and referring friends. All you have to do is enter your Bitcoin Wallet address to get money sent to you for completing a task. The best part? Once your task is verified, you’re paid almost immedaitely.

Read Our Full Guide to BitcoinGet

44. ShortTask

You’ll shortly notice after visiting this site for the first time that you have a number of options to choose from including. These include data entry, research, writing, or even design. As you contribute your skills to various tasks, you will earn money, often at a better rate than many other sites since the work is more vigorous.

45. RapidWorkers

With the internet playing such a huge role nowadays, marketing is a key topic of conversation. RapidWorkers allows you to help people grow their sites via social media actions, tweeting, or maybe even liking or following a page. As soon as you hit $4, you can withdraw money straight to your PayPal account. In any case, you can gain great experience using social media to build a brand.

46. MiniJobz

Similar to RapidWorkers, this site has a particular focus on social media and the branding side of building a business. If you are going to try out this site, it is important to note that you will not receive payment via PayPal. Your earnings will be sent via Payza or MoneyBookers.

47. NeoBux

When you think of micro-task sites, this is what really comes to mind. All you have to do is scroll through various ads to make your money. Since the tasks are extremely small, the pay reflects this,  but it can be a great way to earn some money whilst doing something else as it doesn’t really require too much attention.

48. Skyword

If you’re an amateur writer or looking to get better at writing, this can be a great way to earn some money whilst also gaining experience in your desired field. You can make as much as up to $10 per article as well as some of the revenue from traffic that goes to the page. The more you share the article with your friends, the more likely you are to generate revenue. You will receive your payment twice a month.

49. JobBoy

Although the pay is relatively small per tasks, they’re incredible simple and you won’t be going up against dozens of other applicants for each job. This site is available all around the world and pays out to PayPal. It’s a much smaller site than others, meaning there won’t be as many job postings as the more popular ones. However, this also means there’s less competition when looking for jobs.

51. MobileWorks

Keep in mind that we’re talking about the .com site, not the .org one. This site specializes in lead generation. You can apply for various data entry tasks as well as many other micro tasks such as being a virtual assistant or managing social media platforms.

52. GigWalk

With their main platform as an app, GigWalk posts a number of small tasks every single day. The payout is relatively high, and they only contract out jobs that are in your area. For example, right now I see a posting to earn $7 just to take photos of Dum Dum Lollipops at my local Sam’s Club. Keep in mind that there will be more tasks available in larger cities. This app is incredibly easy to use and their payout rate is quite quick.

53. Social Lens Research

If you’ve used Upwork (formerly oDesk) before, you might see this site as a smaller version of it. As a freelance worker in a field of your choice, you can bid for certain tasks and see the rewards once the job is done. You can pick out the highest-paying jobs and the tasks that you are good at. On the downside, there are often many people vying for the same task, yet it’s much less known than other task sites.

54. Field Agent

Field Agent is an app that’s available for mobile devices, allowing you to find small tasks in your town. For example, there may be someone who wants a picture of a product or even the price of an item at a particular store. Earn between $3 and $12 for each of these tasks and withdraw to PayPal. The larger the city you live in, the more likely you will have a wide variety of tasks to complete. In some places you can make up to $100 per day.

Read Our Full Guide to Field Agent

55. Agent Anything

Another task site that pays you to complete tasks in your local area is Agent Anything. This includes delivering coffee to picking up someone’s laundry. They will ask you if you’re a college student when signing-up to know to be flexible with your schedule – they don’t want you working during exams.

56. Appen

If you speak more than one language, Appen is a fantastic option. This site is always looking for translators to perform tasks. Even though the pay is relatively small, the tasks are simple compared to some other sites and should be easy enough if you speak the language that the task requires.

57. EasyShift

Similar to Field Agent, EasyShift has a key difference in that you work in shifts. When you are out and about, you can begin a shift and perform tasks that may be available. Ultimately, this can be a great way to spread the work between multiple users. After first earning money, you will need to wait a couple of days for verification before then withdrawing to PayPal.

Read Our Full Guide to EasyShift

58. Click Chores

Click Chores is a site that’s also available for international users. This is a great way to make money doing small tasks. Currently, the site seems to be in the sweet spot of having a good amount of tasks without too many people going for each job.

Final Thoughts

Keep in mind that maybe not all of these sites are for you. Depending on your taste and what you like, you may find certain small task sites on this list to be more enjoyable than the other. That’s why we recommend eventually trying them all to see which one best fits your interests as well as your desired payout rate.
