  1. Great list! Some of these companies (Amazon.com for example) still require you to live close to company headquarters so they can be face-to-face for the initial interview and the occasional meeting. This might banish any notion of living in Tahiti, sipping a fruit smoothie while working ‘remotely’ for a big tech company back ‘home’ in the US. :)

  2. Trish Adams

    Thank you so much

  3. Joolie

    Check with your tax accountant before embarking on any that don’t make you an employee of the company paying you, especially if you don’t plan to make a significant time investment. The year I tried writing on the side as a second job, I ended up earning less than the tax hit I took for being Self-Employed. For some reason they lower your deductible when you’re self-employed.

    • What actually happened was that when you are self-employed you are paying the full amount of social security and medicare on the amount you grossed, while as an employee your employer paid half of your social security and half of your medicare.

  4. This is an excellent list! I am familiar with many of these companies and have heard mostly good things about them.

    The online tutoring field really does seem to be taking off, and there are even some companies out there that don’t require a 4-year college degree to get started.

    • Glad you liked them Anna!

    • Where are these online tutoring field at? I am looking for something to do at home part-time.

      • Some people start their own tutoring businesses, but if you want to make money with tutoring quickly, you’re best off to try and get in with an established company like Tutor.com or Brainfuse. You can also try ESL (English Second Language) tutoring. That’s another industry that’s taking off right now — popular companies there include Tutor ABC and Cambly.

  5. Thanks for this article! I am definitely going to look into some of these resources and share with my friends and family!

  6. You know this is great if your getting ready to retire or have just retired to make some exstra cash. Thanks for this information.

  7. This is a great list with plenty of options! I had no clue some of these companies paid people to work from home. Thanks!

  8. Awesome information. I had been looking for some good leads. Thanks for all you do!!!

  9. Great list, John!
    I have never heard of many of these. Wegolook.com sounds like a very cool service, especially if you’re buying a higher priced item sight unseen.

  10. Good post and good article, but i think when you put this articles together its important to remind readers that those contracts will not fall into thier lap. All these work from home schemes required an awfull lot of work and persistence.
    Stay blessed

  11. Patrick

    I know this is off topic, but some of your readers might be veterans or children of veterans they should look into USAA.com a site that does banking, auto insurance, property insurance, you name it they do it. Find the cheapest prices for your family. I’m just a happy customer.

  12. Lets not forget marketing jobs at home that allow you to refer people to top-rated, consumable products (with a high reorder rate-because of company credibility and highly effective products) that pay you on a weekly basis for building a client base that continues ordering.
    All the tools are provided for you to conduct a professional business, plus the complete system is given to you so you can reap the greatest financial success while being coached one-on-one.
    The most reliable and credible companies are flourishing in the networking industry!

    • I am looking for a real pay you work at home job. The one you talked about sounds good would like to check into

  13. can these companies benefit people from continents like africa. anyone there with knowledge on this can advise

  14. Thank you so very much for this list. I have a full time job and I am just looking to make some extra money on the side. I am a mother of four with one on the way, so the need for extra money is urgent. I have a college degree so it even opens more doors for me.

    Thank you,
    Tawana

  15. thanks alot

  16. Thanks for recommending us these Companies. I found a great deal of information.

  17. wegolook sounded good until I read the terms and privacy statement….No thanks as they share with third parties and call centers. Make sure you read all the terms prior. I mystery shopping and have been lucky so far with who I have signed up with.

    • May I ask who you signed up with to mystery shop? I would love to do that.

      Thanks!

    • I would also like to know who you signed up with for mystery shopping.

    • Could you also give me the info of the mystery shopping company you work for ??? Thanks!!

  18. Stephanie

    I was curious, are there any more sites like About.com? They have topics I can write about but I wanted to know if there was any other sites like that that you’d know about.

  19. Barie Perry

    I worked for Speak Write while on maternity leave with my first child 15 years ago. I loved it. They were called Cybersecretary back then. I transcribed legal documents while the baby slept.

  20. I can’t seem to find the “work from home” information on Amazon.com. Any more direction you can give?

  21. God!swill

    Thank you very much for the information and knowledge you have shared through this article.Now,for those of us in Africa,how can we benefit from these opportunities.Moreover,apart from paypal,are there other payment modes that these companies uses to pay,especially Demand Studios.

  22. Rebecca Garcia

    As of today (3/5/13), Speak Write requires at least 5 years experience as a typist or transcriptionist before allowing you to apply. I’m sure it was different when you created this list and stated that it would be a great job for college students. This stay-at-home-mom couldn’t qualify since my 7+ years in computers was not considered enough experience. I appreciate the list though. I am going through it to find something I can do to bring in a little extra income.

  23. Marcia,

    You do not ever have to pay to be part of mystery shopping. Some great company’s to work for are Bestmark, Intellishop, and Second to None, This is just three, there are many more out there.

  24. This is a nice post. Some of the best paying sites are listed that pays you on your expertise. Its up to you where you fit well. Since I am a blogger, I would like to add legitimate sites that pays you to blog, and they are: sponsoredreviews, blogsvertise, payperpost, reviewme.

    Thanks for sharing

    • could you let me know how you became a good blogger?
      interested in any information you can pass on, and thank you!
      -patty s.

  25. Great advice, thanks for the list, I’ll have to try out some.

  26. jasmine

    I love your list! I have always been passionate about being an entrepreneur and being paid to work from home, but there is a problem: most of these websites, companies are located in the US and require you to be living there. So how does an African like me living in the UAE benefit from this.
    Please i would greatly appreciate any response. I have been trying to do this for years. So i would know if i am the one not doing it right or to just give up. Thank you.

    • Adriana

      Hey Margaret, how’s working from home going? I hope it’s going well, any recommendations?

  27. Vicki Ventura

    The Speak Write also required 24 months of legal transcriptionist experience. I have many years of typing experience, and type over 60 wpm, but was immediately turned down because of a lack of the experience I just mentioned. Sounds to me, then, like they only do legal work.

  28. Hey John,

    Thank you so much for this information, unfortunately most of these companies only offer opportunities to US Citizens, do you have information on more companies that offer opportunities worldwide?

    Regards
    Jeanny

    • Jeanny, my best recommendation would be to think of major companies in your country, and do a Google search for something like: “[Country] [Company] Jobs.” Then look on the company’s website for work from home jobs. Another alternative is to start your own little company!

  29. Pamela Russell

    This is so awesome and I am definitely going to check some of these jobs out!!! I was so happy to see a website such as this that I am sharing it with people I know and those who can benefit from this website. Thanks a bunch for sharing this!!!

  30. Thank you so much for this list! I just applied to a few and I just got started!
    Hope to get back to you soon with lots of good news.

  31. Thanks for the list! I’ve been doing a lot of freelance work on sites like Elance.com recently and I have to say it pays well if you can find good gigs! I’ve earned about $500 over the past 2 weeks alone just doing small wee jobs for people and I can only see the earnings go up once the reviews start coming in!

  32. Tricia Fonseth

    I have been working for Arise for over 4 yrs now…I LOVE IT!!
    You do pay for your training but well worth every penny.

    Many different companies to choose from Sears, Sprint, Att&t and Disney.

    • jennifer

      What is this; is it like a call center from home? &; is the pay and benefits good

  33. Thank you so much for these oppertunity. I only have one thing to add and that is that you all should have work from home jobs for those like my self that do not have a collage degree or all that high tex stuff. This dose not mean we are not hard worker and do not know what we are doing. So I ask for my self please give me a chance.Thank you so much.

  34. Els Anna

    Hi Christian,
    Thanks to you I discovered elance.com. They offer administration jobs, translation, webdesign, etc and there are no restrictions on where you live. I started two weeks ago and earned around 270 $. It takes some time to get your first job but when you receive good reviews from clients then you get new jobs easily. Many thanks. Els

  35. Nykki

    Thank you so much for this AMAZING article. I can’t explain how grateful I am for this!!

  36. Thanks for sharing the lists of work from home opportunities it’s a great help….

    God bless you and your family…

  37. Nice read brother,

    I tried few websites you that you mentioned like leap force and text broker which I could use for some extra income, But I stay in India and I guess they don’t allow registration from India, it wold be really helpful if you could help me find similar legit companies who allow Indian registration.

  38. Mary C.

    Thank you for this information. Poor health forced me into retirement, and I would like to use my education and experience to earn some extra money. This will help. God bless you.

  39. I did the Leapforce thing for a year, and it was almost impossible to get work. Every time I signed in, and trust me, I did A LOT because I was unemployed when I first found this article, I would get 5-15 minutes of work, and then it would say nothing else was available. It was very frustrating and did not help at all, really…still lost everything. Have checked out a few of these others, but due to life circumstances don’t have a college degree, and don’t have the legal typing experience required for the one. Wishing I could find something that an intelligent (was Valedictorian) yet non college degreed person can do. Just because I don’t have a piece of paper doesn’t mean I don’t study constantly on my own…

  40. Swagatika

    Hi John,

    I am new to this NY state and i came here in H4 VISA post marriage..Adding to this i do not have bank account.Can i get cash in our home address instead of bank account?Also Am i eligible to work from home with this VISA?

  41. HI… Do you have a list of legitimate typing jobs at home for non-US/ Canadian citizens. Thank you very much. :)

  42. Surprised to see that you do not list LiveOps as one of these companies.
