How to make money from your phone with the Roamler app

Posted on

Welcome to my blog review of Roamler.  Read on to discover how to easily make money from your phone using this smart phone app.  I also have a Roamler invite code for you!

What is the Roamler app?

Roamler is a smartphone app which allows users to make money as part of their mobile workforce by carrying out small tasks.  Roamler is available in the UK and many other countries.  These are tasks such as checking stock levels in stores or ensuring a promotion is on display.  There are also mystery shopping style tasks such as pretending to book a holiday in a travel agent, for example.  The tasks really are varied and I’ve completed things such as photographing tomatoes in a supermarket, counting shelf facings of products in beauty stores as well as seeing if a shop assistant tells me about a promotion at a checkout.  Some of the tasks have to be performed in secret and for others you have to introduce yourself to a staff member and even ask them some questions.

How do I get paid tasks on Roamler?

After finding a code and signing up, there are a few unpaid tasks that you must complete before gaining access to the paid tasks.  These tasks are really easy and most can be completed at home or in your local area.  They give you a feel for the app and teach you how to use it properly.  Once you have passed the first level of unpaid tasks you will then be able to see paid tasks.  As you climb the levels you will be able to see more paid tasks as well as reserve more of them.

If you live near a city then you’ll see a lot more tasks.  I live on the outskirts of a city and there are a few tasks in local shops and the one supermarket near me, but nowhere near as many tasks if I head into the city.  To see more tasks you can simply widen your search.

There are also lots of XP tasks that you can do at home to get extra points to help you climb the levels.

How much does Roamler pay per task?

Payment varies per task and is anywhere from around £2 to £15 depending on the task, deadline and work involved.  Tasks are usually approved within a few hours and the payment then shows in your balance.

How do I get paid by Roamler?

Roamler will pay you directly to your PayPal account.  You can cash out at any point, however there is a small fee if your balance is £20 or less.  If your balance is £20.01 or more then you can cash out with no fees.

Pros

  • Can cash out instantly (there’s a small fee if cashing out £20 or less)
  • Ability to reserve tasks so they don’t disappear
  • Easy to use app
  • Tasks and instructions are easy to follow
  • Easy to make extra money when doing your regular supermarket shop
  • Some tasks are really quick and easy
  • No expectations so you can pick and choose how many tasks you do each month
  • Many tasks are fun to do and you sometimes get food/drink/shopping paid for

Cons

  • Need a code/invite to sign up (but I have solved that for you!  Use code LyliaRose to sign up today!)
  • Can’t sign up if there are already enough Roamlers in your area
  • Some tasks require an awful lot of photos and it’s hard to do it slyly.  Make sure you are ready with an excuse for why you are taking photos if the task says you cannot introduce yourself.

Will it make me rich?

I can’t see that it would ever make a full time income, but it’s a nice side hustle.  In my best and most active month I made £200.  This involved me checking the app every day and I spent one whole day driving around to do tasks.  Obviously as I drove around it would alert me of more tasks as I was suddenly closer to other locations.  If you really need cash then you can certainly use the app and go further afield to find more tasks.  You’ll find more in cities. 

As a side hustle and to make some extra money whilst you do your regular shops then it’s definitely an app worth having.
