3 legitimate ways you can make money online

2. Sell handmade crafts
Are you a crafty person looking to make extra money? Selling handmade items is a fun way to earn money online.

Etsy: How’d you like your own online store to sell your crafts? Etsy makes it easy to create a full product catalog showcasing your crafts. Buyers purchase items directly through the site. It’s free to create your shop, but Etsy charges $.20 for each item you post and takes a 3.5-percent cut of anything you sell.

Handmade at Amazon: To be considered to sell products on Handmade at Amazon, you have to apply here. Once you're accepted, there's no charge to list your products on Handmade. Amazon takes 12 percent of your sales. It's similar to Etsy, but Amazon is a much larger site, which means there's the potential for many more customers.
