Making Money in Canada
July 15, 2010 1:44pm CST
Hello! I have seen so many pay sites out there, but they are almost always for US residents only. If you live outside the US, they either don't pay or they just give you gift cards (which isn't always bad). So, I have been doing a lot of research and can't seem to find many that pay outside the US. Do you guys have any that will pay you if you are a Canadian resident? I am looking for any site that pays. I am not looking for anything specific (like surveys, PTCs, etc.), but just any site in general. Thanks for the suggestions!!!

I'd have to second what Cher913 says. MyLot's one of the best moneymaking sites that I know of from the point of view of being reliable. It's slow earning unless you're very active, but they're honest and always pay. In case you're not already aware of them, it's a good idea to check to see if there are any available tasks that you think you could do. They usually only pay a few cents, but it adds up over time.

I am going to try and be as active as I can on here. I would like to gain more experience on other sites, as this will help me to gain a better understanding on how the whole 'online money' process works. As for the tasks, I actually just got one approved that was worth $5.00! Hopefully more of those come along ;)

I'm a member of Swagbucks, I know they pay out to Canadian residents. You randomly win points for doing stuff like searching the internet, completing offers, doing surveys etc and once you've saved up enough points you can buy stuff from their online shops, including PayPal vouchers (which is what I always get). It's not a fortune, but I earn a steady $5 a month (US currency) mostly through searching. There's a banner on my profile if you want to find out more about the site.

Hi, About Swagbucks, they do not pay people from my province in Canada. I don't know why, but they do not accept Quebec residents. I have tried once to register with swagbucks, but it did not work at all. So, I decided to forget about this website. There are so many websites that accepts Canadians but not Quebec residents. It is just really crazy.

Have you tried about PrizeLive? I personally think Canada residents have some advantages on many gpt programs, a lots of jobs are offered to Canadians only. It's true that Americans have the greatest advantage about making money online but residents in Canada are not bad at all. :) If you're interested about prizelive you can take a look on my profile. And if you're hard working enough you can also try to upload files on fileserve and make money by sharing your file links. Countries like Canada, US and UK have the greatest earning because they are Tier-A countries. That is, you can make at most $25 when 1000 people download your file. Although my country is on Tier-D that's the least earning i can also make over 20usd every week. An alternative program for fileserve would be Sharing Matrix(same as FileSonic), they now offer the highest earning but Canada is on Tier-2. These program are all availabe on profile, please feel free to have an eye on it. :)

Thanks a lot! I am definitely gonna check those sites out. If you've been paid, then that's even better. It seems that there are tons of sites out there, but it's hard to defer between the scams and the sites that actually do payout. There's no point in wasting time doing things for nothing ;)
