Do you know what most teenagers will do in their free time? Browsing the images and watching videos posted on the social networking apps like Facebook, Twitter etc. Does anyone pay them for liking a post, sharing a link or posting a tweet? No.
Fortunately, there are some GPT websites and mobile apps where you will get paid to watch videos. The only thing you need is an internet connection with good speed. You can use any device like mobile, desktop computer, tablet or laptop for watching videos.
How To Earn Money By Watching Videos From These Websites
Below are the websites/apps that I use to earn money from watching videos.
There are two ways in Swagbucks for earning money from watching videos.
Swagbucks has 6 different mobile apps for watching videos. If you have already a member of the Swagbucks website, you can use the same login credentials for these apps. Given below are the links for the apps that can be downloaded from the Google play store. ( I hope it is available for iOS also).
For every app, you can find videos in many categories.
- Just open a video from any one of the categories and leave the device undisturbed.
- Check every 15 minutes or so and make sure it is running. If you see any pop-up ads, just close the ad so that the video will continue again.
- Let the videos run till you see a similar message like this. ‘ You have hit today’s earning limit of SB’.
Repeat the 3 steps for all the 6 apps from Swagbucks.
Some apps pay 2 SB for every 5 videos while others pay 2 SB for every 10 videos. Each app has a daily limit of 10 SB. If you still watch the videos after completing the daily limit, you will not be paid.
Total SB that can be earned per day = 6 x 10 = 60 SB
Total SB that can be earned per month = 30 x 60 = 1800 SB ($18)
If you are already a member of the Swagbucks website, log on to the website and click the link ‘Watch’ on the left-hand side of the screen under the heading ‘Earn Your SB’. You will see a screen similar to the one below.

Hideout.tv is a standalone video platform that rewards users to watch curated quality videos on various categories like Food, Adventure, Music, Crafts and more. You will be credited with points for every 3 videos + ads you watch. The good thing about Hideout.tv is that it allows you to redeem the points to another loyalty rewards partner like Earnably, Zoombucks, InstaGC, GrabPoints, GrindaBuck and more.
At the time of writing, it lists 50+ loyalty rewards partners. Even though it allows you to link multiple rewards partner to your account, you can watch videos on only one device at a time.
There are two ways in InboxDollars to earn money from watching videos.
You can earn few cents for watching the videos in InboxDollars TV. If you are already a registered member of InboxDollars, follow the steps below.

- $ – 1 or 2 cents

- $$$ – 8 or 10 cents
You can continue the above steps till you reach the daily limit. ( I use this 1 to 3 times per day ).If you set a goal of 30 cents daily using this method, you can easily earn $9 per month.
Click the link ‘Videos’ on the home page of InboxDollars. You can see several videos listed there with the title ‘earn $0.01’. You will easily get $0.01 for watching any of these videos. If you set a goal of watching 10 videos daily using this method, you can easily earn 30 x 0.10 = $3 per month.
GrabPoints has a lot of video playlists on their website. If you are already a registered member of Grabpoints, click the link ‘Watch videos’ on the left-hand side of your screen under the heading ‘Earn’. You will see a similar screen like the one below.
In this section, check out the one titled ‘Grabpoints TV’. It has more than 1000 videos arranged in various categories.
- You will get 1 point for watching one video.
- Choose a category, start the video playlist and let it run for an hour or so to get 50 to 100 points easily.
If you set a daily goal of 100 points, you can easily earn 100×30 = 3000 points ($3) per month.
In this section, you will see a lot of video playlists like App Trailers, Movie Trailers, Food Trailers and more. You will get 5 points to watch 3 videos or 10 points to watch 9 videos.

7. Perk TV
Perk TV pays you to watch app trailers, movie trailers, and other entertainment-related videos. It is available to the users located in the US, UK, Australia, and Canada.
You will get 1 point per watch. Besides the desktop app, you can also install Perk TV and Perk TV Live apps on your iOS/Android phone to earn money for watching videos. Totally, there are 8 apps available on the Perk family which helps you to make money by doing various tasks like answering the quiz, reading articles and more.
Once your points balance reaches 9000 ($5), you can request payment via PayPal.
Viggle is also part of the Perk family. You can easily make money from Viggle by connecting your favorite TV or NetFlix shows. Viggle is available as a mobile app for both iOS and Android platforms.
Before starting to watch the TV show, just search and find that show on Viggle to synchronize with your TV time. The pay per video based on the length and popularity of the TV show.
The points you have earned using this app will get added to your Perk account automatically.
Paid2YouTube is not a high earning option as it pays you only a small amount of $0.005 cents to watch a YouTube video. Once your earnings reach $10, you can request cash out via PayPal.
Even though it has been around for quite a long time, some members have stated that they have not received their payout on its forum page. Hence, it is to better to search the web for some payment proofs before joining this website.
It depends on how much time you spend daily for watching videos and also on your geographical location. Generally, users in USA and UK can earn more money when compared with users located in the rest of the world. You can earn $10 to $100 per month without doing much work.
Do you need to sit and watch all the videos?
No. You don’t have to watch all the videos by yourself. Just you have to check the device every 30 minutes or 1 hour and make sure that the videos are being played.
Can you watch the same video on more than one device?
It depends on the policy of the website you use for watching videos. Personally, I am not in favor of that. If you have more than one device, you can use both at the same time to watch videos from different websites.
5 Tips To Earn More Money By Watching Vidoes
- Avoid using VPN.
- Instead of sticking to one app/website, try 5-10 sources.
- Try to use 3 or 4 spare devices to increase your earnings.
- Refresh your videos at least once every hour or so.
- Don’t let the videos run overnight as inactivity might ban your account.
How Much Money You Can Make By Watching Videos?
Some websites/apps allow you to use more than one device for watching the videos. Join those websites and try to use as many devices as possible. If you are residing in the top tier countries like the US, UK, and Canada, then you can spend $100-$200 to buy 2-3 smartphones. Because you can easily make $100 to $200 per month by watching videos alone.
