Whenever we search for work from home jobs on the internet, we get results demanding registration fees. 

I often ponder upon, are there any free online jobs that we can do without investment? Or getting trapped into any kind of scams?

In my journey so far, I have found that there are in fact plenty!

Some of the legit online jobs without fees that can pay you instant money are mentioned below:

#9. Online transcription

Converting the voice in an audio or a video into a written document is transcription. There are different types like business transcription, legal transcription, medical transcription etc. 

How to start without investment?

The company provides you with an audio or video. You have to listen to it (in case of audio) or watch it (in case of video) and pen down the voice recording. It can be a speech, interview or anything. There is no investment required.

#10. Social media manager

Companies need people who can create good content related to their products or services to attract their customers. You have to share the details in a creative way on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. 

How to start without investment?

You only need good communication skills because you may have to respond to customer queries on social media platforms and no investment is required.

#11. Customer Service Management

Checking if the requirements of the customers of a particular company are being fulfilled or not, managing a team of customer service providers, directly connecting with customers, analysing the data history of the customer with the company and working to improve the customer-company relationship are some of the main works a customer service manager does.

How to start without investment?

You may sometime need to invest in a certification or course. Other than that, there is no investment required.

#12. Online Consultant Work

Online consultants provide service (in form of advice) in the field of their expertise. For example

  • Business consultant

  • Legal consultant

  • Health and fitness consultant

  • Online counsellor

  • Career consultant

How to start without investment?

Companies connect clients and consultants. A part of your fees goes to the company providing the space. You can start on your own website too. This can give you full control over your work that too from the comfort of your own home and without any kind of investment!

#13. Blogging

Can you create useful content and post them regularly? Blogging can be a great way to earn all by yourself. You have to keep your blog updated with new content at regular intervals. After you get targeted visitors, you can start earning. 

How to start without investment?

There are a lot of ways to earn from a blog like Google Adsense, affiliate marketing, writing about other products and reviews etc. These things need no investment. But if you opt for a paid blog, you need to pay that monthly fee.

These are only a few among the huge number of work from home jobs available without investing money.

Some companies might ask for a registration fee. But why?

Why do companies put a registration fee?

The reasons can be:

  • The cost of the kit (machine etc)
    If you have to get their sewing machine suppose, you have to pay for it. But pay cash on delivery only.

  • Training purpose
    The set of skills needed is not known. They can provide training before employing you. But keep in mind, even big brands do not need employers to invest.

  • Costs of sending documents offline  
    For data entry jobs, this can be valid. Check well before paying. Research all about the company thoroughly over the internet.

Most of the jobs asking for money are unfortunately scams. You should never pay a fee for pre job training also. If the company is genuine they are bound to employ you without investment.

What are the red flags to look for to be safe from Scams?

  • The highlighted creatively written words are  WORK FROM HOME.

For example, you can see a headline “WORK FROM HOME, WEEKLY PAYMENT”.

No genuine company will do that. Why? Think of yourself as an employer. The work from home option can attract a lot of people but the actual important thing that matters is the requirement of the position. They won’t want all random people to get attracted. They need employees with specific qualities and skills.

  • A huge sum of money is promised as the main headline with work from home.


Chances are, they will ask for investment right after you apply. If the company is genuine, they won’t declare an amount of money as if they are giving away the money.

  • Less work, more money kind of offers.
    So are they keen to give you more money in exchange for a simple small amount of work? Do not fall prey. They won’t start without investment though.

  • Spelling and grammar errors in job ads.


A huge NO-NO in this case. Of course, they are fraudsters.

  • Unprofessional contact information
    “Contact [email protected] !”
    If the person providing the job gives an unprofessional email ID, it is a red flag. Companies use their own domain address. Employers use that ID to connect with job seekers. They do not use their personal email ID.

Use your instincts. Research well before providing bank details. Look for reviews. Try to opt for jobs without investment. If you decide to pay a registration fee, do that after researching well. There are many websites to find reviews and ratings.

Good luck!
