Sometimes websites like Yahoo Answers and Quora just aren't enough for the more complex questions people have.

Here are some of the best websites for earning money answering people's questions:

Note: This post was originally published on 4/29/2017 and was most recently updated on 4/5/2021.

1. JustAnswer

JustAnswer is one of the most highly-trafficked websites for paying people to answer questions. You get paid 50% of what customers are willing to pay for your answer as your commission.

You may be able to make between $20-$50 per question you successfully answer. Also, if you want to be paid via PayPal, that is an option.

2. KGB

KGB allows you to make money answering questions via text message. If you are in the US, Canada, or the Philippines, you can answer questions on this site. Expect $0.03 – $0.10 per answer.

3. FixYa

FixYa is more technical and the questions people ask are related more towards fixing electronics and other things. You earn points that you can redeem for rewards.

4. Wonder

Wonder allows you to get paid for answering questions from their research dashboard. You don't get paid unless the customer is satisfied with the answer though.

With Wonder, you get paid every 2 weeks or so at up to $25 per hour. PayPal is also an option for getting paid.

5. Live Person

The great thing about Live Person is you get paid via PayPal. You also get to set your own rate and work your own hours.

You also will need a minimum of $50 earned to cash out. To apply, make sure and check their careers page at the link above for chat jobs.

6. Studypool

Studypool, formerly known as Createpool, lets you make money by sharing your expertise much like the other sites on this list. They will take 20% of your earnings as their commission and leave you the other 80% to keep.

Also, keep in mind that most questions at Studypool are academic-related.

And, if you want to get paid via PayPal, that is an option.

7. Weegy

What makes Weegy different from other sites on this list is they have a directory with answers to many questions on their already. You get paid when you answer questions that aren't in that directory. Expect about $0.20 per answer.

Once you've made at least $20, your funds can auto-transfer to your PayPal account.

8. Experts123

Experts123 helps you earn money by either answering questions or writing articles ($10-$20 per article). People are hired worldwide and they have both revenue sharing as well as upfront pay opportunities.

You can be paid via PayPal once you have a minimum of $20 earned.

9. Help Owl

With Help Owl, you get paid in redeemable points when you answer people's questions. They have worldwide opportunities.

10. Ether

When you use Ether, you answer questions via phone (or other way of making calls). You get to set your own pay but Ether still gets a 15% commission out of it.

11. Maven

With Maven you are more of a consultant where you can select your hourly rate and help people as an expert. They hire people all around the world.

12. Directly

Directly is geared more towards customer support and helping people with questions relating to specific companies. It's sort of a cross between company chat support and a site like Quora. You're kind of a freelance customer support rep and you can cash out with as little as $2 in earnings.

Here, you keep 50% of what the customer pays for providing the answer. You get paid within 2-4 days, and PayPal is an option.

13. Chegg Study

Chegg is geared more towards helping students who have questions related to courses or specific textbooks.

14. SmallbizAdvice

If you feel like you're qualified to give advice specifically about small businesses and how to run them, check out SmallbizAdvice.

15. PrestoExperts

PrestoExperts is a platform known for having 24/7 support for people who have a wide range of questions.They cover tech, business, health, counseling, and much more.

16. Keen

Keen is a little different from the other sites on this list because it is more geared towards psychics, horoscopes, and things of that nature.

17. 1Q

With 1Q, you can give text message answers to people who have questions about business. You get paid $0.50 per answer and PayPal is an option for cashing out.

18. myLot

At 1Q, you get paid to to start discussions or answer questions. It's kind of like a forum. The more valuable your content is and the higher it is rated, the more money you can earn.

The minimum you'll need to cash out every month is $5 and you may do so via PayPal.

19. Online Verdict

At Online Verdict, you can get paid to answer questions about cases as a mock juror.

A mock juror basically helps lawyers prepare for cases by acting as a pretend member of a jury. It's like a practice trial.

Sometimes, you'll be asked to come to a verdict, but a lot of times lawyers just want you to answer questions on a survey after hearing the case.

These can be done online or in-person.

At Online Verdict, you can earn $20-$60 per case and each case takes 20-60 minutes.

You'll need to be at least 18 years old and a U.S. citizen to apply.

Usually, 25-50 jurors are picked per case.

20. eJury

eJury is another mock jury site that lets you get paid to answer questions about a trial.

Each case usually takes 35 minutes or so and you get paid $5-$10 each.

eJury is best if you live near a major city in the U.S. because the opportunities usually go by jurisdiction.

The requirements for eJury are:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • U.S. citizen
  • Able to read/write
  • Good morale character and sound mind
  • No indictment, felony, or misdemeanor charges against you

21. Resolution Research

Another mock jury site is Resolution Research.

This site is run by a marketing research company and includes mock jury opportunities as well as paid surveys.

They also have a referral program you can take advantage of if you know someone else that might want to make little extra money.

You can earn $5-$400 per gig depending on who hires you and what kind of gig you do.

There is also no minimum amount of earnings for you to withdraw.

22. Jury Solutions

Jury Solutions is yet another mock jury site that lets you make $20/hour or so.

Here you can do mock trials in-person or online depending on jurisdiction and each takes around 8 hours of work.

23. Virtual Jury

Virtual Jury is another site where you can get paid to become a mock juror as part of a focus group.

24. JuryTest

JuryTest also lets you give feedback on trials as a mock juror and get paid $20-$50 per case.

You may be asked to give feedback on trials via live chat, voice recordings, or filling out surveys.

Each case takes around an hour or less.

The main requirement they have is that you are a U.S. citizen.

25. JuryTalk

JuryTalk is another mock jury site with mock trials and legal focus groups.

Each case usually lasts one day and you'll be paid soon after (although I'm exactly sure how much they pay).

All you have to do is listen to short legal cases and fill out a questionnaire afterwards.

      A few of these websites don’t even exist anymore, and some were created YEARS ago and are now dead. Which means no one is going to be there to pay you. Plus, they look really sketchy, not something I would trust my personal information with.
