Our smartphones have become quite powerful tools, in a number of ways. We use them to watch movies, browse the web, pay for stuff in stores, take pictures, communicate with people, and so much more. Many people use their phones to run their business, partially. You can do that too, as there are quite a few money-making apps available for Android, and we can show you some of the best ones.
Now, there’s no easy way to earn a lot of cash, but if you’re willing to make an effort, every single of these apps can help you make some cash. Below, you’ll find nine apps, which are not listed in a specific order. Some of them are marketplace apps, to sell goods, while others have other purposes. There is, for example, an app that will give you an idea of how to make passive income. You’ll find plenty of information below, so, let’s get started.
Below is a quick overview of the top 9 best money-making Android apps for 2021, including any download and in-app purchase costs.
Below is a little more information on each app, a suggestion for the type of user the app is best suited to, and a direct link for easy downloading.
All download links go to the app’s Google Play Store listing. Users are always recommended to download apps from Google Play or an authorized app store.
eBay is one of the best, globally-available and popular marketplaces. The company does offer a compelling app for your smartphone, using which you can sell stuff. You probably have stuff lying around the house that you don’t need, and it may be worth something. Well, you can easily sell it by using eBay. Many people actually run their business via this application, if they’re selling some goods.
eBay gives you a lot of options when it comes to fine-tuning your sales. If you want to sell to people in your country only, you can do that. In fact, you can choose to which countries you’re willing to ship, and eBay will adapt. There are a ton of such options included here. The app’s design is quite minimal, simple, and that’s a good thing. Using the app is easy, though listing new items does take some time, as there are quite a few options you can choose from.
Amazon is, needless to say, one of the world’s largest retailers. It’s actually the most popular retailer in the US, easily. And yes, you can become a part of the action as well, from the seller side of things. You can get an Amazon Seller account, and use the app Amazon provides to control that account. If you have something to sell, you can do that via Amazon, and by using this app.
You don’t have to run a business in order to do this, you can simply make a virtual garage sale, or something of the sort. You can, also, run a business, if you want. Do note that the app is free, but you’ll be required to pay a small fee for every item you sell. If you’re selling a ton of stuff per month, there’s a monthly fee you can pay, so that you save some cash along the way. The app looks nice, and works great.

Etsy is also an online marketplace, but considerably different in comparison to eBay and Amazon. Etsy is an excellent place to buy and sell handmade products, and also unique products at the same time. Such products do tend to be more expensive, but chances are you won’t find them elsewhere, and if you’re careful, you can get some really quality products. That being said, if you’re making some products of your own, and you’d like to sell them, this is the way to go.
The app to sell via Etsy is called “Sell on Etsy”, surprise surprise. Etsy does not limit you on what to sell, by the way. This app will allow you to manage your shop, order, and so on. You can also chat with buyers, if they send you a message with a question or something of the sort. Etsy is a great place to sell your own products, it’s great for artists, and those of you who like to make stuff / products.

No matter whether you used it or not, chances are you’ve heard of PayPal. This payment service has been around for a long time, and it’s constantly growing. It’s a great way to run your business, financially. You can run your business virtually by using PayPal, handle all incoming payments, and create invoices as well. You can also send payments via PayPal. Many stores out there support paying with PayPal.
You can even embed PayPal as a payment option on your website, if you’re selling products that way, it’s not a problem. Do note that you’ll need a PayPal business account if you’re running a business, just so you have all the tools necessary for running your business. PayPal is free to use, though the app does take a percentage of every payment that is made, so keep that in mind.
Facebook Marketplace is yet another excellent way to sell stuff. You can simply list an item you want to sell, or a bunch of them, and wait for people to contact you. The difference between Facebook Marketplace and eBay or Amazon, is that Facebook Marketplace is focused on selling stuff to people nearby. You’re meant to sell products to people in your area, and make it possible for them to get it in person, though that’s not mandatory.
The way this works is really simple, take a couple of pictures of an item or items you’d like to sell, post that via Facebook Marketplace with a description and your contact info, and wait. You can make it possible for people to contact you via a phone, send you a message via Facebook, or whatever else you’d like. The service has been around for a while now, and it has been quite popular.

The app will tell you what skills are needed for a specific idea it offers. Some will require more work than others, though usually, those that need more work will end up providing you with a higher income. The app’s UI design is really simple, and it’s very functional.

You’ve probably heard of Uber and Uber Eats. The first is a ridesharing service, while the latter is a food delivery service. If you’re looking to earn a quick buck, and you don’t really have any ideas at the moment, you can do it via Uber. Uber is not the only choice, though, of course. Depending on where you live, you may rely on some other options, such as Glovo for example, or Lyft.
We’ve taken Uber as an example, as it’s arguably the best-known ridesharing service out there. The company’s app is really nice. It looks nice, and it’s very functional. It gives the user a lot of information about the driver, and it gives you, as a driver, ease of use and it mostly stays out of the way. You can get started working for Uber really quickly, if you’re interested, and the same goes for similar services.

You can get a lot of information about starting tons of different jobs, and get tips from people who succeeded.
On the other hand, you can become a YouTube creator. If you love making videos, and you have some ideas what to film to make the audience interested, go for it. It will take a while before you’re able to profit from it, but if you love making videos, and are willing to put in the work, it’s certainly a good idea. If you manage to grow to a certain level, you can start monetizing your channel on YouTube.
