Qmee is a paid to search browser addon that I have wrote about before here but I wanted to provide a follow up on my Qmee cashouts. I’ve been using the website for another 3 months or so since my last post and while my earnings have slowed down I am still cashing out at least a few pounds every month for next to no effort.
*Qmee is never going to be a large money maker, just because of the nature of their browser add on, but it is a regular trickle which soon builds up. I have earned around £55-60 so far, in a year or so, and this has been useful indeed.
How do you use Qmee?
I use Google Chrome and I have the *Qmee browser extension installed. I then use the internet, as normal, and on occasion I will spot a sidebar appear on the left hand side of my screen.
This sidebar shows advertisements for products that are usually either identical or very similar to what I have been searching for. By clicking on one of the advertisements I am able to earn the advertised rate, usually from 5-15p.
I find that I usually receive searches for 7p, 6p and 5p. I often press the back button after clicking an advertisement, in order to see if there are more advertisements, and usually they decrease in 1p amounts down to 5p.
I’ve never had a paid advertisement reward me with less than 5p which seems to be the norm from what I have read online.
My balance on Qmee updates immediately after clicking a paid search and it is easy to see that it has been completed successfully as a little piggybank appears where the Qmee extension sits on the right hand side.
The piggybank fills up and a coin drops in, then you can click the addon button to see the new balance.
The best part about Qmee, besides being paid to search of course, is that the cashouts are arranged instantly. I just click the Green ‘Q’ in the top right hand corner, click ‘Cashout piggybank’ and in seconds the money is in my Paypal account.
The minimum cashout level seems to be £0.01 from what I can tell but I usually just cashout now and then, usually when I want to buy something specific and need to bump up my Paypal!
I personally find 2-3 adverts each day, usually adding up to around 11-18p, occasionally more, and the advertisements that I am shown are always relevant to the items that I am searching.
On occasion they have even helped me to find an item that was cheaper and/or better quality than the item that I was looking at.
In summary this is another slow burner, but an instant Paypal cashout anytime you earn isn’t a bad thing is it! If you’re looking to make some extra money online then be sure to check out my post of great ways to make and save money.
