There are a lot of free methods you can use to start earning online. So, it can get quite confusing which ones are actually the best. It’s especially hard to choose which methods to use if you are looking for global options.
That’s why I’ve decided to make a guide on the best worldwide free ways to make money online to help you choose which methods you should try. That way, all you have to do is pick which ones you prefer and then look for websites that offer that kind of opportunity.
And just to make it clear – there will be options you can use to earn no matter the country you live in.
In this guide, I will also include samples of each method to help you get started and which options to choose.

What can you expect from these methods?
Before we talk about the best methods, we need to discuss a few things first.
As mentioned above, all the methods I will be presenting are free to join. So, you won’t have to spend a single dime to earn. All you really need to invest is a bit of your time and some effort.
You have to be willing to invest a bit of time in order to earn a decent amount. Most of these earning methods will also require a bit of patience because the opportunities won’t always pay you a lot (I will talk about this in the next section).
You also need to have good comprehension skills to understand some of the tasks these methods will ask you to do. And more often than not, you will need to clearly understand what you need to do before you start doing the work.
But there are also ways you can earn without having to put in a lot of effort and be able to earn more or less passively.
So, as you can see, there are various ways you can earn online. All you have to do is pick which one you are most interested in and feel like you can get the most out of it.
How much can you earn with free online methods?
Now, let’s talk about the earning potential of the methods I will be presenting.
It is important to keep in mind that the money you can earn from these methods will not be comparable to what you can earn from a full-time job.
These methods are not designed to replace full-time jobs either. They are methods to help you earn some extra cash so you can have a bit of “spending money” so to speak. Any site that claims you can earn hundreds of dollars in just a few hours or days with methods like this is lying to you.
It is, however, more or less impossible to put an exact figure on how much you can earn as it depends a lot on the country you live in (and of course on your effort).
In some countries (mainly the bigger English-speaking countries) you would be able to earn quite nice money and maybe even up to $1000 per month if you put in a lot of effort. In some countries, a more realistic amount would be maybe around $300 and in others again maybe around $100.
So, as you can see, the earning potential will depend on the country you live in but you will be able to earn some nice extra cash no matter the country you live in.
You just need to do it with the right expectations and be aware that it’s not exactly something you can make a living out of but it is still a decent amount nevertheless.
How can you withdraw your earnings?
Now that you know how much you can earn from these methods, the next thing we need to discuss before we talk about the free ways you can earn online is how you can withdraw your earnings.
On most sites, the main withdrawal option will be PayPal. So, if you don’t have a PayPal account yet, I would suggest you sign-up for one first before you join any site and make sure you get it verified.
However, PayPal is not available in all countries so if you cannot get a PayPal account or just do not want to use it, then do not worry – many sites will also offer other payout methods.
Some will, for example, allow you to withdraw your earnings via direct bank transfer, but that isn’t very common. The more common option is exchanging your earnings into gift cards from online stores like Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, and more.
There are also sites that offer other payment gateways like Skrill, Payoneer, Payeer, and more. One of the best pieces of advice I can give you when deciding which methods to choose is to look at the payment options of the sites and see if you have an account for any of the payment options they offer. That way, you are guaranteed to have a way to get your earnings out.
7 worldwide free ways to make money online
Now that we’ve discussed the fundamental things you need to know, let’s talk about the ways you can make money online. Take note that these are not the only ways to earn online that are available globally.
It is instead a list of what I think are the most efficient ways available. In other words, these are the methods that are worth it. So, let’s go ahead and take a closer look at the methods.
#1 – Micro job websites
One of the best ways to earn extra cash online if you are looking for options that will always have tasks no matter the country you live in is to join a micro job website. In case this is your first time hearing about this kind of site, let me explain what this kind of site is.
A micro-job website is a kind of site that will allow you to earn by taking on simple jobs. Most of these sites are available globally, so you will be able to join regardless of where you live.
Most of the jobs being offered on these sites will involve signing up on websites, answering surveys, watching videos, gathering data, and more. The tasks are relatively simple and it won’t eat up a lot of your time.
One site I can recommend you join is called Picoworkers. This micro job site offers plenty of jobs which is what makes it a good option because you can earn on a regular basis. You can also easily identify which jobs you can take on because they mark the jobs according to the countries it is available in.
It has a relatively low payout threshold of $5.75, so you can withdraw your earnings rather quickly. You can get paid via PayPal, cryptocurrency, or Skrill. For cryptocurrency payments, you can choose to get paid in Ethereum or Litecoin. For more information about Picoworkers, I recommend you check out my Picoworkers review.

#2 – Watching videos
Another way to earn extra cash online is by watching videos. This kind of method requires little effort. All you have to do is watch a video. And the good thing is, there are plenty of sites that offer this kind of opportunity.
But, this opportunity doesn’t really pay that much. But since it really requires little to no effort, it can still be a valid option for earning. Some sites won’t even require you to actually watch the video. You can just let it run on the background while you do other stuff and most of the videos aren’t really that long (usually around 30 to 60 seconds long).
However, there are sites that have geographic limitations to videos you can watch. There is one site that offers videos that are available in all countries though and it is called TimeBucks. It is a Get-Paid-To (GPT) site that offers plenty of earning methods (including watching videos).
It has a relatively low payout threshold of $10 and it offers multiple payment options like Payeer, Neteller, Skrill, and even direct bank transfer. You can also convert your earnings to Bitcoin. So, it has flexible payment options. You can learn more about this site on my TimeBucks review.
#3 – Binance
If you’ve dabbled with cryptocurrency before, then you are probably already familiar with Binance. If you haven’t yet, then let me explain what Binance is. It is a cryptocurrency exchange platform that provides a way for trading various cryptocurrencies.
So, how can you earn from it? Well, Binance offers a couple of opportunities for you to earn that I can recommend. You can go to their Savings section and earn passively. Once you put in a bit of money to your Binance account, you can earn interest of up to 10% or sometimes even higher.
You can also go to their Locked Staking section to earn more. This is a bit more complicated than the Savings option but you can earn more from it once you learn how it works. And the good thing is, there are plenty of tutorials you can read on Binance.
This is the only method on this list that will involve putting in a bit of money, but registering to Binance is free. You just need to invest a little bit of money at the beginning – however, some of the earning options on this list also offer to pay in crypto so you can take your earnings out via Binance and then let them grow further there and that way, earn without having to put any of your savings into it.
#4 – Sharing your unused bandwidth
Another good way to earn extra cash online is by sharing your unused internet bandwidth. This is especially profitable if you have a great internet subscription because it will allow you to make full use of your subscription.
One such site that offers this kind of opportunity is Honeygain. This platform will allow you to earn by simply setting up their application (on your computer or mobile device or both). Once it is set up, you can just sit back and wait until you’ve reached their payout threshold so you can withdraw your earnings.
And speaking of payout threshold, it does have a rather high threshold of $20. But since you are basically earning passively, it is still a good deal, in my opinion. You can get paid via PayPal or Bitcoin, so withdrawing your earnings will be pretty easy.
To learn more about this opportunity, you can check out my Honeygain review. This review also contains a joining link where you can receive a $5 sign-up bonus.
#5 – Paid surveys
If you don’t already know, I’m a big fan of earning through paid surveys. The reason for this is, it is really a very easy way to earn. You just sit back and answer a few questions as honestly as you can and you get paid. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
And the best thing is, there are plenty of survey sites that are available globally. Some even have specific survey panels for specific countries. You just have to be a bit patient with survey sites because you won’t always qualify for every survey you answer.
The only downside of this method is, in some countries, there just aren’t a lot of surveys available since there aren’t a lot of companies doing market research for those countries. But there are a lot of survey sites that are available in different countries.
For a list of those survey sites, I would recommend you check out the top survey sites in your country.
In case you live in a country where there is not a lot of available surveys, then just focus on some of the other earning methods on this list instead.
#6 – Data entry tasks
This method of earning is also relatively easy to do. But it does take up a bit of your time. So, I would only recommend you choose this method if you have plenty of time to spare.
There are sites that offer opportunities to earn by doing data entry tasks like drawing boxes around images, transcribing audio files, categorizing data, and more.
A good example of a site that offers this kind of task is called Remotasks. This site will allow you to earn by working on various tasks like drawing boxes around cars and other objects, moderating and analyzing content, identifying spam and related content, categorizing t-shirts and other objects, and more.
It sounds a bit more complicated than the other methods in this guide, but it actually gets easier over time once you get used to the tasks. Plus, you actually have to go through training exercises first so you can get used to the work that needs to be done.
You get paid via PayPal every week, so you don’t really have to hit a specific threshold in order to withdraw your earnings.
To learn more about this site or other data entry sites, you can check out this list of the best data entry platforms.
#7 – Watching ads
The last method on this list is pretty similar to watching videos. As the name says, you can also earn simply by watching ads. This kind of opportunity requires little effort, but as you may already know, if an opportunity requires little effort to do, it won’t pay well.
Be that as it may, you can still earn a decent amount from this method if you are patient enough.
One good example of a site that offers this kind of opportunity is called Cointiply. This is a GPT site that will allow you to earn in many different ways aside from watching ads. In fact, if you join this site, I would recommend you work on the other earning opportunities first before you start watching ads since they pay more.
You can start watching ads if there isn’t anything else to do on the site. Now, the one thing to note about this site is, it only pays in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Dogecoin, or Litecoin. So, if you are not into cryptocurrency, it is best you work on the other methods.
The threshold you need to reach to withdraw your earnings will depend on the cryptocurrency you want to withdraw. But typically, the threshold will be relatively low, so you can still withdraw your earnings quickly.
For more information about this site, I suggest you check out my Cointiply review.
So that concludes my guide about the best worldwide free ways to make money online. Most of the methods presented won’t require any money to start earning. So, you can just pick which one you are most interested in.
Now, I would recommend you join several of them and not just stick to one to maximize your earnings. That way, you gain access to more opportunities which will naturally result in more earnings.
