How to Make Money in Grand Theft Auto Online

Welcome to my blog. If you’re new here, you might want to check out the FAQ section for help.

This article will tell you exactly how to make money in GTA Online. I’ll cover everything from earning money, to level design, to weapons. You’ll even learn how to improve your odds of winning cash from random events!

The Basics

GTA Online is a free-to-play game that can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. It is the successor to the 2008 GameCube release, Grand Theft Auto IV. If you haven’t played it yet, you should probably head to the app stores to grab a copy. Once you’ve got it, you can start playing immediately.

As with any other Free-to-play game, you’ll want to earn cash towards upgrading your car, purchasing new weapons, and spending on outfits and hairstyles. The following will talk you through the various ways you can earn cash in GTA Online.

The Traditional Way

The easiest way to earn money in GTA Online is by completing missions for other players. These can range from killing a certain amount of rival players, to escorting packages, to stealing cars, and more. Some missions even require you to deliver specific amounts of cash.

The most popular method of payment in GTA Online is through the use of real money. When you run out of cash, you can either choose to buy more with in-game money (called ‘Vibes’ in GTA Online) or wait until another player pays you. When this happens, your in-game money resets to a small amount and becomes unavailable for 20 minutes.

If you decide that mission-running is too boring, you can become a taxi driver and make money through passenger tips. You can also work for a business owner in a legal capacity, delivering packages or performing odd tasks, and get paid in cash or gifts cards.

The Social Way

GTA Online allows you to access a social features, which many players use to boost their earnings. You can communicate with other players through your cellphone’s Wi-Fi connection, using a tool called a ‘Bike’.

When you ride your bike to another player, they will add you to their ‘buddies list’. When any of your buddies log in and join the game, they will appear next to your name on the main screen, displaying a lightning bolt emblem (similar to a ticker-tape parade in the old days of TV news).

Your buddies’ inventory, access to their homes (where you can find hidden items), and mission details, are all attached to their profile in the game. They can also give you missions that pay well and can’t be completed by the solo player.

Another great thing about the social features in GTA Online is that you can use them to communicate with other players even when you’re offline. This can be useful in case you lose your cellphone’s connection or if you forget to log in when the app launches. You can use a computer to connect to the Internet, and other players’ profile pages to check in with friends whenever you want.

The Professional Way

If you’re looking for an even more sophisticated way to earn money in GTA Online, you can start a club. When other players discover your club and join it, you’ll gain the ability to purchase in-game items, such as vehicles and properties, for sale at a discount. You can also purchase bulk orders of weapons and armor, providing you with a military-style approach to crime.

Clubs can be found in several regions of the map. When you decide to sell property in a club, you will have the option of either keeping the cash or using it to purchase more club gear. You can also choose to rent property, using the rent to pay for new buildings or other items.

The most lucrative option is to form a business partnership with a group of other players. In this case, you’ll need to split the earnings from a job evenly, providing a fair share for all of your teammates. Remember, you can’t commit any crimes as part of a business partnership. When you’re with a group of players, you’re also protected by a ‘fence’ that keeps everyone’s inventory separate from one another. A fence protects you from robberies caused by other players, while still allowing you to access each other’s properties and share items you all have access to. You can’t break a fence or destroy another player’s property, even if they attempt to rob you.

The Casual Way

If none of the previous methods of making money in GTA Online appeal to you, you can still try your luck through random events. These can be found in certain areas of the map and provide you with an easy way to earn some fast cash. When you engage with these events, you will occasionally get an item that provides you with a boost to your income. You can use this money to purchase weapons and gear to further enhance your ability to rob and steal.

The most convenient way to earn money in GTA Online is by purchasing ads in the game’s ‘Daily missions’ section. You’ll need to have a Google account to set these ads up. Once you’ve done this, you can simply log in to your account and start earning. You won’t need to complete any missions to receive your daily earnings. If you’re new to the game, you should probably try this route, as it is the simplest way to earn money.

With all of these methods of making money in GTA Online, you can find a way to fit quite literally around the corner. When you need to spend money, you’ll either need to find a way to rob a bank or store, sell some drugs, or engage in some illegal activity, all of which are available in the game. As for my personal favorite method of making quick cash, I would have to say that it’s probably the least attractive of all the ways I list here, but it’s also the most exciting. This is where you enter the website ‘’ and start making money through Google Adsense. For those of you who don’t quite know what this is, it’s an ad-supported website that lets you earn money by simply creating websites. You get paid per ad that’s displayed on your site, when someone clicks on it. It’s pretty self-explanatory.


There are many different ways to make money in Grand Theft Auto Online, as I’ve hopefully demonstrated. It may not be the most ethical way to earn money, but it’s certainly the most convenient. It starts with the basics: money is something you will need if you want to purchase the things you need to progress in the game. The first few hundred thousand dollars may not be easy to come by, but it’s not impossible, either. There are many ways to earn money in GTA Online, providing you with a variety of options.
