I want it to be anonymous (no emails, just i do work, they send money)
I want to get $10-$20 dollars a month, no more is needed
Why: Money for games
I am familiar with the following
Do you think I can get a simple work which is relatively short (1-2 days of 3/5hr coding) at max for 5/10/20 bucks? -- Paypal
I hope i'm not too rediculous

You could mow a lawn or two for a few dollars cash.... just ask your neighbors.

10 hours of coding for 20 bucks? That is way too cheap, you should charge at least 20 dollars an hour.
If you only want to make 20 bucks, Fumigator is on the right track, mow some lawns or wash some cars.

i said online money, i can easily send money through mail but i dont like doing that, it only works 99.9% of the time...
I wanna try doing it by paypal.
And i dont like physical work, even though i get money irl anytime i want, my parents just won't pay for anything on the internet for me... so i have to do it myself.

Who said anything about enjoying the work? Sounds like you could use a bit of hard labor.

I think we went a little off topic...
I just needed suggestions what I can do online to get money into my paypal account. I know im horrible at writing content for triond, but Im somewhat decent programmer, and I believe i should be able to somehow get 10-20 bucks per month doing that...
I dont have problems with money, its just i think paypal is a safer method to send money, than by putting it in an envelope...

If you have money, you can connect your bank account to paypal
06-21-2008, 07:30 PM
I just thought of a great plan. You put $20 in an envelope and mail it to me. As soon as I get it I'll put $10 into your Paypal account. We're both happy! :thumbsup:

I dont have a bank account...

Who wants to make money but doesn't have a bank account? This is ridiculous. You said in another post you can get money anytime you want it, but now that I see you can't cash a check...I understand why you don't want them to mail you $40 for World of Warcraft.
Your list of things you do...seems quite large...almost like you probably don't actually know how to do all of that. I take it you are in college or something? It sounds like you should probably get off your computer and do something in the (gasp) outdoors or get a job. My roommate (Pre-Med) in college dropped out sophomore year because he played too much WOW. I think hes living with his parents now...still playing...eating Cheatos. I don't have any sympathy for people who aren't willing to put some effort to do something with themselves. Probably because I grew up on a farm...
That being said there are a bunch of freelancing websites that you can bid for someone's programming project and only bid $30 for a site...I bet somebody will take you up on it.
PS There is a new WOW game.

Jeremy, I am in high school, I don't have a bank account, i only play games once in a long while. If I played them 24/7 I'd not have this problem since id just send by mail.
I am gonna get a job this month, but Im gonna get payed in cash and I dont have credit card nor bank accoint*yet again...
The problem is i dont wanna pay by sending CASH... im usually slightly overpaying(since i send paper money).
And I too grew up on a (somewhat-farm) in ukraine called "dacha" where we made most of our food...
I just want a small job to test how paypal works... Is it honestly that hard?
I spend most of my time experimenting with programming languages... right now java and c++...
06-21-2008, 09:54 PM
No it is not, my apologies for being a little crass. I've seen a lot of people who are in a similar situation because they choose to be lazy.
Best thing is to just get a bank account. Whats the harm in that, and why not save some money instead of getting cash only and risk loosing it?
06-21-2008, 10:00 PM
Why not just go get a bank account then?
The issue is that there are very few jobs online that pay so little.
06-21-2008, 10:11 PM
I dont mind being payed more, but 10-20 bucks is all i need, right now i have 320bucks im saving, and my parents dont allow me to get bank acc before i get a job so... ill get it later, but thats not the reason i made this topic.
I just want a way I can program online and get 10+ dollars per month... I dont play games much but I wanna be able to when I want to. even if i go on once a month i still need to pay for the month... 10 bucks isnt a lot... hours or less work for good programmer, Im not a professional and this way I can get some experience... so it could be convinient... but I really don't know... I didnt know getting the first $10 bucks online would take so long... i expected day at max...

what do i do there?
06-22-2008, 12:55 AM
Its just one of dozens of sites that you can find small projects. You sign up, bid on projects, and if you win one you do the work and get paid.

Can you have a paypal account without a checking accound, credit card, etc? It might be an issue, but I'm only guessing.
06-22-2008, 02:35 AM
Yes you can, at least could...but then you can only transfer money through Paypal...which is limiting unless you only need to pay for stuff online. I first got Paypal without attaching my account or anything to it, and could receive money. You can't send more money then you have in your account though, because it becomes your bank basically, without interest.
06-22-2008, 03:30 AM
And I don't think you can have a verified paypal account without a bank account.
06-22-2008, 05:40 AM
Right you can't. I'm not even sure if you can use the plugin they offer to generate secure cc's for online purchases if you don't have a bank account. You said you just wanted to "test" paypal. If thats the case then test away. http://developer.paypal.com

Paypal limit how much you can earn if your account isn't verified
