Paypal etc.

Which one should you choose?

If you don’t want to annoy your users in any way and provide a simple download layout, you should go for Depositefiles or Filefactory. But, if you are sharing some data or files of great importance like some free softwares, users will download it surely. So, you can go with other
sites. However, I won’t recommend using survey sites, as sometimes even after completing the survey they don’t provide the users with download link. Don’t be too greedy, also keep your status in mind.

Final words,

They are almost hundreds of website offering money for every file upload. But, about 75% are fake and don’t provide any income. Some of the websites get closed after sometime, while some won’t pay you pointin out your mistakes that you never made. So, its better you stick with any of the above websites and don’t disappoint your users. You need to
think about both, Users as well as income. Don’t just go with highest paying company as they might have some other conditions. Hope this guide helped you in making money in your free time. Have any suggestions? Comment below. Happy earning !

Before working with any site me highly recommend you to check some reviews and get real time experiences from previous and current users on site’s forums and other Q & A sites. Wish you all success online income.
