Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto Online gets a lot of flak for its microtransactions, but, really, the game isn’t as bad as everyone makes it out to be. There are many ways to make money in the game aside from spending real cash on random items that have no practical use. Below, you’ll discover some of the best ways to make money in GTA Online without breaking the bank or resorting to blackmarket deals.
Lease Your Car
If you don’t want to spend too much money on a brand new car, you can lease one instead in GTA Online. Just head over to the car dealership in your city and choose the one that you like. Then, you can ask the car salesperson to set the price (usually around five to ten percent less than the car’s market value) and make the deal there and then. Once the paperwork is done and you’ve given them the key, you can hit the road and begin making money by doing jobs for people.
The advantage of leasing a car in GTA Online is that you can usually find a decent deal if you look, and you don’t necessarily need additional financing as long as you can make the monthly payments. Leasing a car can also be a viable option if you want to purchase a specific model that is in demand, but aren’t sure you can afford it.
Sell Your Stuff On EBay
Another way to make quick cash in GTA Online is to put your items up for auction on eBay. Just head over to your local mall and find a nice space near the food court. Then, you can throw a garage sale for all your friends and families to attend. Once the ceremony has finished, take a look at your Ebay page and make sure you’ve made enough money to cover the costs of the space and all the merchandise you’ve put up for auction.
The great thing about this option is that you don’t need to be in a particularly good bargaining position to make money. You can set the price of your items fairly easily and get rid of all the stuff you don’t need in a couple of hours. Then, you can do the same thing all over again if you want to make more money. This makes eBay a viable option for anyone looking to break even or make a little bit of money on the side in GTA Online.
Take On Jobs For Families
If you’re looking for a stable source of income that you can depend on, you can always take on a job for a family. There are many needs that they may have and you can find work that matches your skills. The best part of this option is that you won’t need a lot of training to start making money. Just head over to the family’s home and begin helping them with whatever they need. Do a little bit of shopping, cook dinner, clean the house, paint, wallpaper, whatever they need.
The disadvantage of this option is that the pay isn’t always great and the work can be dangerous (especially if you want to earn a lot of money). Still, if you’re looking for a way to make quick money without having to sacrifice too much, this could be a viable option for you.
Break Into Businesses And Rob Bank Accounts
If you’ve got a criminal mind, you can always go into business for yourself and get involved in illegal activities in GTA Online. You’ll need to get a crew together and you’ll need to find the best locations to target. Once you’re done stealing from the rich, you can split the money and live the high life in Los Santos or Blaine County. This is a real world version of GTA Online’s criminal activities and it’s a way of life that some gamers choose to live. The great thing about this option is that you don’t need a lot of money to get started. All you need are the clothes on your back and a computer to create a profile.
The disadvantage of this option is that it’s illegal and you’ll need to deal with police officers and other criminals if you want to make a living from it. Besides, you’ll need a lot of courage to commit these types of crimes and chances are, you won’t survive long in the game if you do decide to go down this route.
Stall Marketers And Advertisers
If you’re good at getting people to watch your advertisements, you can begin making money in GTA Online by simply advertising products that you don’t need. People will come to your page looking for the products you’re advertising and you can make money off their interest. You’ll need to have a lot of money to buy expensive ads, but you can make it work if you’re clever enough to know the right people to approach.
One of the best things about this option is that you don’t need any special skills to get started. You’ll simply need a phone and a computer with an internet connection. Once you’ve got that, you can begin making money quickly.
One of the disadvantages of this option is that you need to convince people to view your advertisements. In most cases, marketers will pay you to display their ads on your social media pages or website. Sometimes, though, they’ll just give you the money for nothing if you get enough sign-ups or views. This can be quite the hustle, especially if you want to make a living off it.
No matter what your approach is to making money in GTA Online, as long as you avoid using real cash, you’ll be able to enjoy the game without fear of financial ruin. Just remember that the game’s microtransactions can be a pain point for a lot of gamers and even the most diehard fans have grown weary of them. Still, until Rockstar finds a way to monetize future Grand Theft Auto games outside of microtransactions, this will remain as one of the best options for gamers who want to make quick cash in the meantime.
