The Amazon FBA program is a program that helps you achieve side income by providing you storage for items you want to sell on Amazon. The program will even package your products and ship your merchandise for you after a customer purchases your item on the Amazon store. The program is only $40 a month and .45 cents per unit item. 

You can start an Amazon FBA side business today by just creating an Amazon seller account. Once you’ve done that, decide what you’re selling and who is in the market you want to sell to. Next, create a brand and market that brand of products. Then you can sit back and let Amazon do all of the transactions for you.

Have an extra room or place? Think about hosting it on the Airbnb network. Airbnb lets people temporarily rent a room or place to guests for a day or more. 

To get started on Airbnb, you have to sign up on the Airbnb host page. List the type of place you would like to host. The website will guide you on the options that you need to pick to match the service of hospitality you are offering. When you set everything up and make sure your place is organized and secured, people will start setting appointments to come to stay at your Airbnb. You just have to take care of those transactions and just sit back and watch your side income accumulate.

Rent Your Car

Another great way to accumulate money passively is renting out your car or extra car. There are many apps where you can register your car for people to rent daily or hourly and get paid. It doesn’t require much effort except for making sure your car is available to be rented out on the day the appointment is set for.

Several apps provide this service in many different cities. In particular, the app GetAround allows you to choose what you will charge someone to use your car for the day. The company even provides you with insurance in case a client damages your car. It is one of the best-known apps out there for renting out your car.

With the network you build, the possibilities are endless.

One passive side hustle that requires early work creating it but can earn a lot is an Ebook guide. If you write about something people want to learn about, you will constantly get people to come back to learn more about that subject. Each time they buy your Ebook, you will see an increase in your passive income.

Long gone are the days that you need to hire a broker to get started in investing. This passive side hustle can create a large sum of money in the long run; although, it is the only side hustle that can cause a loss of investment if you don’t pay attention.
