Have you ever found yourself wondering where you can get an extra $100 while waiting for your paycheck? Maybe you’re just broke and need some moola. Or perhaps you just love money. Or maybe the idea of your phone buzzing with incoming money makes you happy. I am certain we all want the financial freedom that comes with having a little extra on the side.

When you love money, like we all do, including the ones who pretend they don’t, you will understand just how your mood can shoot from zero to 100 after a notification hits your phone. You can turn from being moody to one of the happiest people on earth, I mean knowing your account is fully loaded provides you with endless opportunities and options. Money makes you feel good, it gives you options and there is no limit to what you can achieve with it.

Now, if you haven’t created a Paypal account I need you to get on it right away. Reading this post without a PayPal account is a waste of your time.  Most of the opportunities I will mention here require you to have a PayPal account so you can get paid. Once you have created your PayPal account, you are good to go.  You can start looking for that extra $100 on the few sites I mention below. You won’t become a millionaire, but you won’t be broke either. So get on board and let’s get the moola.


If you have certain skills in any field, Respondent is looking for you. This is a research-based platform where researchers are always on the lookout for people with certain skills, knowledge, and experience in different fields. You will be compensated for your time.

All you need to do is create an account with Respondent and provide them with as much information as possible. You can link your LinkedIn profile. You may be required to verify your work email address, it’s not a scam, it’s just a procedure to validate your place of work.

Based on your profile, your dashboard will display studies that match your skills.  You have to take a screening to see if you meet the researcher’s requirements. Once selected to participate in a study, you receive an invitation to set up a time that is suitable for you to participate in the study.

As soon as the researcher marks your attendance, you will get compensated for your time and contribution via PayPal. Respondent indicates the date you should expect your payment, where sometimes it can be earlier but never late.

This is a very professional site so you will need to bring your A-game. Studies pay from around $15 to $300. Sometimes they send you an email to notify you of a study that matches your skills.  You can start the screening process to answer a few questions


UserInterviews applies the same method where researchers pay for your knowledge and skills. You need to create a profile with as much detail as possible. You will answer a set of questions to determine if you are a good fit.

Upon being invited to participate in a study, you can make  $100 or more. This depends on the amount set for the study.  You still need a PayPal account to get compensated for your time. Although they have other options where you can get an Amazon gift card for the same amount.


Although you won’t get rich, you can make an extra $100 on this website by participating in short studies. This is a UK-based research company where researchers are always looking for people to participate in studies.  Studies are available on a first-come-first basis.

You don’t require any skills to participate on this website. You are provided with studies based on your profile. Although making $100 may take some time, you will still have some extra cash. You can sign up to participate here


Are you good with a  high school subject or even some college subjects? How about sharing your skills by helping high school learners with homework and assignments?  It is easy to make $100 in a day if you have some time to spare.

Similar to all other mentioned sites, they pay via PayPal every Friday. Now, on StudyPool, you have to make a bid to answer questions. Sometimes the deadlines may not be favorable, so always check the deadline before submitting your bid to answer questions.

There is no limit to the amount of money you can make on these sites. $100 is just the minimum goal you can set for yourself.  For the ones in from South Africa, you know how far you can stretch a $100.
