Here are some online jobs that pay weekly via PayPal.
1. Website Testing
One great way to work from home and get paid weekly via PayPal is by doing website and app testing.
With a site like TryMyUi, you can get paid every Friday and earn $10 per 20-minute test that you do.
All you have to do is give honest feedback on websites.
Transcription can be a great way to make money working from home because it's fairly easy.
You can just listen to audio files and type out what you hear and whom is saying it (if there are multiple people).
Usually, you don't even need experience to do this kind of work. You just need a decent WPM (word per minute) typing speed and accuracy which you can test for free at TypingTest.com.
I recommend checking out a site like Babbletype if you want to do this kind of work and get paid weekly via PayPal.
If you feel like you have pretty good writing skills for creating articles, you can try writing online for a site like TextBroker.
Here, you can get paid to write articles for different clients even if you have no experience.
You will have to take a skills test though to prove yourself as a writer.
As far as compensation, you get paid by the word and by quality.
For example, a great quality, 1,000 word article might make you $50 or so.
4. Video Captions/Subtitles
Another online job you can do is create captions or subtitles for videos.
This is somewhat similar to transcription except you have to make the transcript text appear in sync with when it is spoken in a video.
At a site like Rev, you can get paid weekly via PayPal to do this kind of work.
For captions, you transcribe text and sync it with the visuals and audio of a video. This pays $0.54-$1.10 per audio/video minute.
With subtitle work, you do the same thing, except you have to translate the text into another language. For example, if it is an English video, you might have to do Spanish subtitles.
Subtitle work at Rev pays $1.50-$3.00 per audio/video minute.
5. Mystery Shopping
If you don't mind being on the phone, you can work from home as a mystery shopper.
Mystery shoppers typically will go in stores and evaluate the layout and customer service.
When mystery shopping at home with a site like Call Center QA, you call these stores and fill out a sheet, evaluating their customer service.
At Call Center QA, you can get paid $5 per call which only takes 5-10 minutes each. You also will have flexible hours and weekly pay via PayPal.
6. English Teaching
Another work-from-home job you can do is teach English online.
At a site like Cambly, you can get paid $10.20 per hour via PayPal to teach English to people in foreign countries online.
No experience is necessary to get started and you get paid every Monday on a weekly basis.
If you want to do some easy work at home, you can try microtasking.
Microtasking is basically a virtual assembly line where many different people will work on projects by doing small tasks that lead to a bigger, finished product.
For instance, you might do image tagging, research, proofreading, photo capturing, testing, or many other things that help someone get their project completed.
This kind of work is available at sites like Clickworker, where you can get paid around $10 per hour on average via PayPal on a weekly basis.
8. Data Entry
Another way you can work from home is in the data entry field.
This is also fairly easy work that doesn't require a lot of experience.
One website that pays weekly via PayPal for data entry is SigTrack.
At SigTrack, you get paid to do data entry-related tasks that have to do with petitions, voting registration, etc.
You get paid $3.70 per signature, $15 per registration, etc. depending on accuracy.
You'll also have to provide proof of U.S. residency to work at SigTrack.
Last but not least, you can make money online via PayPal by doing translation work if you're multilingual.
At a site like Translate.com, you can earn $0.005-$0.01/word you translate.
You'll be paid via PayPal and you can cash out anytime.
