9. Text121 Chat

Text121 Chat connects businesses that need text chat operators, customer service agents, and adult phone operators to those looking for such jobs.

Text chat operators can work from home as much or as little as they want, as long as they commit to sending at least 1000 messages a month.

10. TexKings

They’re continually hiring text chat moderators to react and reply to text messages sent by users. The content of the messages range from the mundane to erotic, but when they cross over to offensive to malicious, you’ll need to handle that as well.

The pay varies according to the project and the number of messages you’re able to send, but it ranges from 6 to 12 euro cents per message.

11. FlirtBucks

This one is a bit different from the other adult texting apps in that you’d need a computer to get paid to text and flirt with men on the platform.

But FlirtBucks offers their Chat Operators a safe environment to interact with clients, whether through text chat or through video calls.

Note that although you can do video calls, you don’t have to take your clothes off. In fact, this is discouraged.

FlirtBucks instead encourages friendly, playful, flirtatious conversations and interactions. They remind their Chat Hostesses that they are in control of the chat; if the conversation crosses the line and becomes too graphic, they can always close the chat session.

If you have a pleasant personality and can talk to anyone about anything online, being a Chat Hostess might be a lucrative side gig for you.

In your first 3 months, you can earn 10 cents per minute, and if you go beyond six months, you can earn 15 cents per minute texting.

12. Phrendly

Phrendly is an app that allows users to flirt through text, phone calls, and video calls without having to give out their personal numbers or risk real-life rejections.

You can make $0.35 per text message that you reply to, if you reply within 24 hours. So it’s in your interest to engage and keep that person replying if you want to earn more.

If you’re interested in receiving phone or video calls, you can earn even more; you can set your audio call rate up to $48 per hour and your video call rate up to $66 per hour, and you get 70% of that.

A catch: whoever initiates the contact is the one who pays. So make sure you patiently wait for someone to text you first.

The Bottom Line

Getting paid to text is unlikely to be the dream job you are envisioning, but there are still some programs out there that will help you make some extra cash in your spare time.

If texting isn’t really your thing, though, then I have suggestions for other easy ways to make money with your phone.

Here are other ways to earn through doing the most mundane stuff: watching TV, listening to music, eating, taking a walk, or simply hanging out.

The company pays per text and per minute of phone call (if you go for that option too). As far as I can tell, the payment is around 20 pence (about $0.25) per text you send.
