10 Sites To Make Money By Uploading Files


If you have some files that you want to share with others and you know that a lot of people would download them, then you can make money uploading files.

How It Works?

Create an account on one of these websites, and don’t worry, these types of sites are usually owned by professionals and they are secured. Because preservation of files is very important for you and for them, and the chance to be ripped off is close to none.

Upload your files and get the link the site provide you, now all you need to do is to promote that link on some very popular places on Internet like facebook, twitter, techcrunch, digital point and so on. Because the people will look for what they need and then you will provide them with the link, and when certain amount of people download your file, maybe it’s an ebook or your mp3 song or some movie you made, you will earn money from the site where you uploaded the file.

Anything can be used if you are clever enough, think about what people download the most and provide them with just that.

The money that you are going to make depends on the size of the file. The bigger the file, the more you will earn online, many of these sites also pay you more if you are from more developed countries or if your downloaders are, and some of them are having country rankings and how much they pay to certain country, so be sure to check that while on the site.

Making money by uploading files is pretty easy, but finding good sites to use is not.
That’s why I created this list of sites where you can make money online with uploading files.

    just want to say that the personal computer i use to write these words was bought by the money earned from uploading files and sharing them with others, it’s not so much but it still something (around 600 USD in 6 months and i stop, my main goal was buy a pc lol )

    Does the size of the file makes a difference? I think so it should as there should be a difference between a movie file and a mp3 file.

      Feb 10, 2013 at 2:59 pm

      I think there is a difference, but it also depends from site to site, thanks for commenting Paul 🙂
