In the year since I joined The Money Shed I have found a variety of new ways to make money. I am not entirely sure why but it took me several months to try out App Jobber. This is something that I instantly regretted, especially as I am making an easy £80-£120 a month from this fantastic app.
What is AppJobber?
AppJobber is a mobile application that is available for download on iOs and Android devices. The app is free to download and you can find out more here. The idea of the app is simple as it is basically a micro tasking application. You are paid a fixed sum to complete a job. This could be something as simple as taking photographs of your Sky box, on your television, to show the movies on offer. There are also jobs that require you to visit specific locations. This could be providing details of opening hours, photographing menus in a restaurant window or visiting an electric car docking station.
How much money can I make with AppJobber?
Personally I am making £4 most days, Monday – Friday. This is simple for two jobs, that each pay £2. I have been picking up 3 x £2 jobs some days, depending on the time of day that I look for work. The new tasks load around midnight and some of them fill up very quick, within minutes. Other jobs, including the ones where you take photographs of your television or laptop, can stick around for almost the whole day.
I often forget to visit the app until around lunchtime – 3pm and I usually pick up 2 x £2 jobs Monday-Friday. This is an easy £20 per week and it takes me just minutes to complete the two jobs. I have actually timed myself recently and I can complete both jobs in under 4 minutes, total time.
Cashouts from AppJobber
As I have already said I have been earning between £80 – £120 per month, roughy, from AppJobber. This is a fantastic little boost to my incomings, especially as the work has been regular so far. AppJobber have lots of customers and their website is full of interesting statistics on the amount of work available. The best AppJobber task takers are earning in excess of £500 per month, but I never see enough work to his this level.
The cashouts from AppJobber are paid out via Paypal. You have to visit the AppJobber website and then you can request your payment. I typically find that a payment is made in less than 24 hours. Because the payments are made in another currency (I think euros?) AppJobber add some extra money on to cover the Paypal fees. For example, my last cashout was £42 and I received £43.69. After the Paypal fees (a declarable tax expense) I received £41.79.
My overall opinion of AppJobber
So far I have been really impressed with this company, and their mobile application. I have been using the app on iOs and I have had next to no problems. When I find jobs listed I will go in to each job, and accept the job. This then holds them for around 30-45 minutes giving me ample time to work through them and meet the requirements. The instructions are simple to understand, mostly, and they are updated quite quickly after changes are required. On occasion the application will close while I am using it, but I never lose the work I have already completed so far. This is only a mild irritant and I think it could be something to do with the size of the files that I am uploading from my iPhone 6S.
In all the time that I have been using AppJobber I have only had 2 jobs rejected. Both times this was due to an error in the task instructions, but ultimately I was to blame for the problem. I only lost out on £2 x 2 and there was a chance for me to appeal this as well. When I appealed it took several weeks to get a response but it felt like it had been genuinely looked at by a real person.
I find the work is nice and regular, Monday – Friday, and I don’t check the application on weekends. I know of several other people using the application and they have been completing jobs outside of their home. I mostly do the jobs that I can do from my sofa as this is a great little boost to my daily and weekly targets.
