Get paid to share your files! The first time i heard that, i thought it was a joke! But this is the 21st century, and every thing is possible. You can now make money by sharing your files. There are actually websites, where you can down load any kind of files or documents you may have, and every time someone downloads that file, you get a couple of cents. I think it is a very well thought out idea that helps both sides. You make some money with a file that otherwise would be useless, and people who need it, have a very fast and cheap way to find and download what they need. Here is a list of websites where you can get paid to share your files.
It is an impressive document directory, that enables you to upload your files and documents there. And when i say documents, i mean anything in these formats: pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, pps, ppsx, rtf, and txt. Yes you can even upload your articles or how-to’s, as long as they are in one of the above format. There is a lot of potential here. The pay is based on the number of times your files are downloaded, and the revenue earned from ad sense displayed on the page where your uploaded file can be downloaded. Meaning whatever amount of money the Website earns, by displaying Google’s ad sense on your file page, will be shared with you. The maximum size of a single file that you can upload is 50 MB, so make sure your files are not to big.
You can upload unlimited amount of Photos, Videos, Audios and Documents. Each time one of your files is downloaded, you earn money, $0.001 to be exact. Once you reach $10, it can be redeemed for cash, and paid to you via pay pal. All Payments will be processed on the 10th of each month. The maximum file size is 200 MB.
DepositFiles – is a popular international service for safely transfer, storage, and distribute files. The pay is based on the size of your files, and you earn each time it’s downloaded. The bigger the file, the more you earn. Basically a file of 1Mb to 4Mb size will earn you $2, and a 5Mb to 9Mb will earn you $3. And it gos all the way up to $10 for 250Mb .. 2000Mb. One of the nice things about this site is their Bonus program, which is a competition for more downloads. Whoever has the most downloaded files, gets a bonus of 200% over their earnings for the period. For example, if you earned $500 in that period (usually a month), you will receive $1500 as your prize. You also earn 20% of your referral’s earnings.
It’s another file hosting service. Upload your files, and post the links on your Website or blog. Every time someone downloads one of your files, depending on the size of your file, you earn anywhere from $1 to up to $100 (per 1000). They pay for downloads generated from 36 countries around the world . You earn 10% of your referrals earnings. The minimum payout amount is $30. Payouts are sent via Epassporte, AlertPay, PayPal and Webmoney within 7 days of request.
You’ll earn “ePoints” each time someone downloads your files, up to 2 ePoints per download. For every 1000 ePoints, you will be paid $1, which i think is a good deal, considering the amount of downloads performed everyday, worldwide. Pay outs are made via PayPal (min $10), ePassporte (min $50), WebMoney (min$50) and wire transfer (min$500). You also have the premium membership option, which empowers for faster and more downloads.
So, if you have any kind of files or document (in almost any format), why not use this opportunity to make a couple of dollars? I mean, wont get you reach, but it’s a good way to make money online. The cool thing is, you really don’t need much time or any specific skill (other than knowing how to upload files of course) to be able to take advantage of this option. This is a good opportunity to help others who may need your files, get them for a very low cost, while at the same time you get paid sharing your files and documents.
