Guide to part-time income

By Staff Writer
Making money in your spare time is not always easy, but Justmoney has partnered with three part-time income providers to try and help you out. Microjobbing platform M4Jam (Money for Jam), Zwipit and Answered are three companies which offer part-time income to those who are happy to earn money by answering survey's, taking pictures, or selling your old cell phones.
 
Here's a roundup on how each company works and how you can earn some extra bucks.
 
Money for jam
 
M4JAM (Money for Jam) allows public and private sector organisations to directly engage with end consumers to perform simple tasks using their mobile devices while they go about their daily routines in exchange for cash.
 
Here you will be asked, for example, to comment on a display in a shop, or to answer questions on your fashion choices. M4JAM has also collaborated with Green Office, which will pay you R5 to if you give them your empty printer.
 
In order to use the service, simply download WeChat, search for the WeChat Official Account: 'Money4Jam,' register and start jobbing. Once you have registered, you can click on the "search for jobs" icon to find jobs in your area.
 
You will be charged R4 to withdraw money from your wallet, which can be done at any Pick n Pay till point.

Zwipit
 
Everyone has some old or used phones laying around that just take up space and gather dust. Zwipit South Africa, an ecommerce business, will give you cash for your mobile devices.
 
Zwipit specialises in buying used and new mobile devices. They enable you to sell your mobile devices for what they claim are competitive cash prices. This way, you can make some extra money by getting rid of those old phones.
 
In order to sell your phone, simply go to their website, enter your phone make and model – for example, a Nokia 3310 – and a price will come up. You will have to also declare if your phone is in working order or not. As long as your phone isn't water damaged, Zwipit are prepared to take your non-working phone off your hands too. If you are happy with the price, just click on 'sell' and follow the instructions.

Answered
 
Answered is an online survey site, where users answer survey questions and earn points. These points can be redeemed. You will earn 10 points (which equals R20) for every survey answered, but youcan only cash out once you reach 50 points.
 
You can get the cash you have earned paid into your account or you can use it to make a charity donation. If you want to rather redeem your rewards for vouchers, then you can do that too.
