Always wanting to know how to make money online, I’ve been searching Google as always. I was pretty pleased to discover a way to earn cash just for carrying out normal day-to-day online searches.
Yes, you can get paid for googling pretty much anything that crosses your mind to search for. You can also get paid for searching for things on Amazon and eBay using the same free in-browser extension.
The extension is Qmee. Once you earn the cash, you can have it paid directly into your Paypal account. You don’t collect points at all – everything you earn is in cash amounts, and you can cash out at any stage without having to hit a payout threshold.
How To Set Up Qmee
It’s really easy to download to your browser, and completely free. You need to install it to your browser so that it can track your searches. I have been using it for some time now and it’s completely safe.
You need to visit their website, and sign up with your email address or with Facebook.
Once logged in, you’ll be prompted to install Qmee on your browser. It doesn’t matter which browser you generally use (I use Chrome, usually). Your browser will ask you if you want to install the extension, so you just need to click ‘yes’.
It takes seconds for Qmee to install its extension. You’ll get a little green ‘Q’ appearing on your browser (top right for Chrome) to show that it is completed.
Qmee will then prompt you to have a go at searching for something, using either Google, Amazon or eBay.
When you search for something that will earn you a little bit of money, a Qmee bar appears next to your search results. You need to click on the search result within the Qmee bar to earn the amount of cash shown next to it.
Click on one of these links, and a small amount of cash is accumulated in your Qmee account. You can see the little green ‘Q’ in your browser change colour while the money is being credited to your account.
Search again, click through to a link again and you’ll earn a bit more. Keep going until the Qmee results disappear.
The beauty of this is that you can just carry on using Google, Amazon and eBay as you usually would to search for things. If anything comes up that you can earn money from, the Qmee bar will automatically appear.
How To Cash Out
You can check how much money you’ve accumulated by clicking the little green ‘Q’ in the top right of your browser.
Click on ‘Cash out my piggybank’ at any time, and you’ll be automatically taken to Qmee’s website. You can request to have the cash put straight into your Paypal account (it takes up to 24 hours). There’s also the option to donate the money to charity if you wish.
Get Paid To Answer Qmee Surveys
Within the Qmee site, you also have the option to answer surveys to earn additional cash rewards. You can choose to have notifications turned on if you want a little message to pop up in your browser when a new survey becomes available.
If you don’t turn the notification on, you can just check the Qmee website for new surveys.
You can also download the Qmee app to answer surveys on your phone when on the go.
Here are my top ten survey sites worth signing up to.
Sign Up With Qmee
Now clearly, with the amounts you earn per Qmee search reward, you won’t become a millionaire. I love how simple and easy this extension is, however. You can receive money just by doing something so simple as searching online. Many of us do this several times a day, so why not get a little back from it? Or give it to charity – another fantastic idea. Qmee recommend that you just carry out your natural online searches to maximise the rewards that appear.
Qmee is absolutely one of my favourite discoveries this year. Small amounts like this will add up to a significant sum over a period of time. I highly recommend you check out Qmee.
If you sign up through my referral link you will earn an extra bonus when you first cash out to PayPal. As soon as you cash out any amount, both you and I will receive 50p into our Qmee accounts!
If you would prefer not to use my referral link for the extra credit, you can just sign up directly with Qmee using this link.
Qmee is great. Who doesn’t love free cash? 🙂 Find out which two apps I use to earn money from my shopping receipts.
I’m a big fan of quidco and have made over £2000 over the past few years. Get very cross when I forget to use it or my husband books something without asking me first!
Wow, that’s such an awesome amount of money! I know, I am the same. Got to get that cashback!
