If you're searching for ways to make money online, you've come to the right place. CashCrate has over 7 million members who are doing just that, and in this guide we'll show you how you can start making money online with CashCrate in just a few easy steps.

Free Surveys & Offers -- Your Path to Cash

One of the easiest and most lucrative ways to make money online with CashCrate is to complete the free surveys and offers found in the Members Area.

Surveys can be found on the Surveys, Best Surveys, and other pages. Topics will vary about different products and services you use. You can also help shape products and services of the future. Companies need your feedback and are willing to pay you for just that! Your opinion is important!

Daily Surveys can be taken one or more times per day. This is indicated in the survey description. Other targeted surveys can be taken as you see them. Be sure to complete these when you see them. Some surveys may accept a limited number of responses from people matching your demographics, and can sometimes disappear quickly. New surveys come out all the time too!

When completing a survey, you will first need to qualify. After qualifying, just provide honest, thoughtful responses. Take your time and read each question carefully until you reach the end.

Free offers are typically short surveys, quizzes, website registrations, and trial products. You can find offers on the Offers Page and other pages. Payout will vary from one offer to another

You'll notice that some offers are completely free, while others require a credit card to complete. In the case of offers requiring a credit card, the payout you receive is often greater than the cost to you. For example, we may pay you $10 to try a product, but the product requires a small sign-up or shipping handling fee of a few dollars.

Many new users prefer to start off with the 100% Free Offers, which is what we usually recommend. These offers are great for beginners because nothing is required other than several minutes of your time. The payouts on these offers are lower, but you're not paying a dime to complete them and they'll get you use to the CashCrate system. After you've started making money online with our free offers, you can always move on to trial offers and increase your earnings.

Getting Your First Payment

CashCrate sends out literally thousands of payments a month to users just like you who spend time completing surveys and offers on CashCrate.com. How do they do it? Well, they do surveys and offers regularly. It really adds up! Your initial goal should be to meet minimum payout, which is $20.00. Making $20.00 in free cash is actually quite easy considering there are hundreds of surveys and offers available, but here are a few tips to get you to your goal faster:

  • Complete Your Profile. Right after signing up, you'll see a message box that will allow you to complete your profile and earn $.50 instantly. It takes just a couple of minutes, and you'll have your fifty cents in your account automatically. It's guaranteed cash.
  • Complete a Survey. Companies want your opinion. Click on a survey, qualify for it, and complete it. If you don't qualify on your first attempts, no need to worry. Just keep trying until you find a survey you do qualify for. Provide your honest thoughts and opinions and get paid for it. Companies need consumer's opinions just like yours!
  • Do an Offer. Offers are an extremely easy way to make money online. Plus, you're bound to find a topic, product, etc. you're interested in. Between free music services, credit report services, games, and all sorts of products, it'd be difficult not to find something you like. Complete both surveys and offers, and your payment will be extra large.
  • Focus on the surveys and offers at the top of the list. Here's a tip not many people know. CashCrate has a special algorithm that automatically selects the best surveys and offers and places them at the top of the list. There are several factors that go into determining which are the “best”, including payout, approval rate, and a variety of other factors. But all you need to know is that these surveys and offers are great, so you can do them in confidence!
