Best 30 Online Jobs for Teens – Work from Home (18 and Under)

This post may contain affiliate links. However I only recommend companies and services I trust.

Having your teen constantly asking you for money to spend can become tricky in this economy. It helps if teens have a job from which they can make their own spending money and learn work ethics while at it. Even though it can be difficult for teens to find online jobs, and adults seem to have the upper hand, there are still some wonderful opportunities that they can take advantage of.

Best 10 Online Work at Home Jobs for Teens (18 and Under)

These are positions that are open to teens under the age of 18, who are available to work after school or in their free time. Teens can also work on weekends since the work schedule is not set.

I don’t know if its secure to give it to them, and was wondering If you think its secure to give my address to the website ????

    • Hi Jesse! Thanks for reaching out to me:-) MySurvey.com is a legitimate survey site that’s been around for a while. If you are a little hesitant about submitting your info, I urge you to read their privacy policy which is disclosed at the bottom of their site. This is something you should always do before making a decision whether to join a survey company or not.

  • monir

    I think Fiverr is the best option for women to work home base work. i am working right now typing

  • Zvonko Koreni

    Um.. i’m 16 but i think i need a credit card for every job listed here. This means i can only do these jobs if i’m 18. Am i correct?

    • Actually no, you will only need a Paypal account which can be setup by a legal guardian. Uhaul hires at 16 and no credit card is needed.

  • Ariel

    Hello, I have a question about the paypal. Can I have an adult create it for me? I’m currently 15 turning 16 soon so I was just wondering about that.

    • Yes absolutely! Just have someone over 18 create a Paypal account for you.

  • Thanks John! I really appreciate your feedback 🙂

  • Anette

    Is it possible that if i work online then the money will go to my email and not credit card?

  • BREE

    Hello Lashay, I am 15 years old and I really want a job I can do online when I get home from school (considering I can’t drive yet). I have tried to sign up for one of those survey sites and I didn’t enjoy it very much. I love writing and I am really good at proofreading and math, but my parents do not like nor trust PayPal… what do you think I should do?

    • Hi Bree! Have you considered teaching math online? Paypal is very trusted site that I have personally dealt with for years. It’s one of the most common methods to receive payment especially if you’re a teen.

  • Britni

    Hi Lashay, I am 16 and currently have a part time job but can no longer work weekends so I’m looking for something I can do online! Any suggestions?

    • Hi Britne! For you age there are several options like taking online surveys, chatting online, writing, etc. Keep in mind, most companies will pay via Paypal so you must have a legal guardian to set one up.

  • Hi Teresa! Thanks for getting in touch. Can you tell me about the type of skills she have? For most you jobs you must have some basic knowledge of using a computer.

  • Hi Angel! Yes there are some online jobs like taking surveys, writing short music reviews, etc. However you must have a Paypal account. Do you have an adult (18 years or older) that could setup one for you?

  • SkyAnna

    Hi Lashay, I’m 15 years old and I need a job so that I can earn money to get a piano and guitar strings. I really like music and want to start a YouTube channel and make music on it. But I also don’t want my mother to know about me earning money. I want it to be a surprise. She is out of work because of health issues and nobody where I live will hire a 15 year old. And also my father lives far away and is in jail so he can’t earn money for us. We have hardly any money and rarely get out of the apartment we live in and if we get money then we will be able to go out more. And also neither of us has a paypal account or a phone, Could you please help me out and give me suggestions that don’t need paypal? And also my real name is Skyler but I would rather be called SkyAnna or Sky.
