I recently stumbled upon a new way to make money: uploading files that may be useful to others.
“Huh?” you say? It’s pretty simple, actually. When someone downloads a file, you get some money (usually between $0.10 to $0.80 depending on what website you use), cash it out, happy day.
Files can be whatever, text files, word files, picture files, etc. etc. No matter what they are, you’ll get money from them.
Below are some of these website. Each with a description, including how much per download, minimum cashout, and my personal opinion on it.
ShareCash is where I started. You get between $0.40 and $0.80 per download from anyone in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. For international downloads there is a minimum of $0.25. The cashout for ShareCash is only $10 and that $10 comes in pretty fast if you advertise your downloads right. My personal opinion on ShareCash is this: It’s a fantastic place to start, the money per download is high compared to average sites, and is just easy.
The second place I went: Upload4Ever. This site’s per download rate depends on how many downloads the file has already gotten. It goes in tiers. Tier 1 is between 1 and 499 downloads, each download worth $0.23. Tier 2 is between 500 and 1499 downloads, each download worth $0.25. Tier 3 is between 1500 and 2999 downloads, each download worth $0.28. Tier 4 is between 3000 and 4999 downloads, each download worth $0.31. Tier 5 is between 5000 and 7499 downloads, each download worth $0.35. Tier 6 is between 7500 and 9999 downloads, each download worth $0.40. Finally, last but not least, Tier 7, the file must have 10000 downloads or more, and is worth $0.45. The minimum payout for Upload4Ever is $10. I have never personally used Upload4Ever to a huge extent, but it still does bring in money for me, so it’s still great to have.
As I currently only use these two sites, I will not put any more. This will be updated periodically if I ever sign up for another site. Leave comments, questions, concerns in the comments. If you know of a site I may be interested in, put it in the comments too and I may put it up here. That’s about it, have a nice day.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Remember to place advertising for your download on a place like YouTube.
