It seems like the world is going digital now more than ever before. With the developments in technology, businesses have shifted their focus to online platforms in order to reach a wider audience and increase their sales.
One of the most popular gaming franchises of all time, Grand Theft Auto, is now available on mobile devices. After nearly two decades on consoles, it was only a matter of time before Rockstar came up with a mobile game that paid homage to their classic series while introducing new gameplay elements.
While the game itself is free, the most convenient way to play seems to be through the use of adverts. During my time with the game, I discovered that you can make a decent amount of money from running a few simple adverts.
If you’re looking to make some extra cash from home, you have multiple options when it comes to earning money with GTA 5. You can run adverts, buy and sell items, take on odd jobs, or even steal a bit of money. There are even a few more unusual ways to earn in the game but for the most part, the game functions in the same way as other virtual economies.
To begin with, you’ll want to create an account with an online wallet provider such as PayPal or Bitcoin. Once you have your wallet, you’ll want to purchase some virtual currency called GTA Money. One of the cool things about this currency is that it’s not necessary to purchase items in the game to make money. You simply have to do two simple tasks that grant you access to some funds. First, download the official GTA 5 app from Apple or Google Play and log in using your email and password. Next, navigate to the Account section in the app and click on the Spend Money button.
From here, you can either search for a merchant that’s accepting GTA Money or input a product code for an in-game purchase. When you find a product that you want to purchase, simply tap on it and you’ll be brought to the in-game store. From here, you can either pay with credit cards or tap on the PayPal icon to make a purchase using your PayPal account.
The Goods Side
As a merchant in GTA 5, you’ll want to make sure you stock up on various items that are popular with the community. When you reach a certain level of notoriety, people will start knocking on your door looking for merchandise you have available for purchase. When this happens, you’ll either have to choose to ignore them or say no thanks and try to find a different way to make money. However, if you decide to take them up on their offer, you’ll have to be careful to avoid getting stuck in a situation where you’re forced to fulfill multiple orders. This is why it’s preferable to only take on one or two items at a time, but even then, you’ll likely have to deal with a lot of people looking to make a purchase.
In some cases, you might even end up making a loss from the arrangement, but as long as you follow the right path and keep things ethical, you should be able to make a profit. Before you begin selling your goods, it’s important to research the market value of the items you have for sale. You can use websites like gumtree to establish the price range for your goods in the current market. Alternatively, you can use a platform like Shopify to set up an online store and then use their built-in eBay integration to set prices for your goods. Once you have an idea of what you’ll need to sell in order to make money, you can begin putting together a store that’s representative of your style and budget. Make sure to follow all the guidelines that eBay or Shopify provide when setting up your store and marketing it online so that you can maximize your profits.
Although GTA 5 is available on various platforms, it seems like the Android iteration is the most convenient to use. This is mainly because tapping on an item to make money in the game is more convenient on a touchscreen than it is on a console controller. While this is a positive attribute, it also means that touchscreen devices are more susceptible to hackers and malware than more secure platforms. It’s also important to keep in mind that while the game itself is free to download and play, certain content within the game – such as some of the dialogue – will require you to pay for. In most cases, this is minimal amounts of money, but for a few select lines, it could add up depending on how often you want to listen to them. For these reasons, it’s best to avoid using public Wi-Fi when playing GTA 5.
If you’d like to make money with GTA 5, you have several options. You can run adverts, sell items for a profit, take on odd jobs, or even steal a bit of money. However, one of the most convenient ways to earn quick cash is to take on odd jobs from strangers, who usually have something they want you to do. In most cases, you’ll be asked to perform simple tasks for a few hours a week, which can then be monetized. However, to start, you’ll want to create a store that’s representative of your style and budget and then use platforms like Shopify or eBay to sell your goods online.
