In this article, we'll look at how to make money fast, in America in 2020.
The fastest way to make some money is to sell something. Other than selling something, you could do odd jobs locally, or donate plasma for money. Let's look at all of the methods in more detail.
There are plenty of odd jobs you could do locally to make some fast money. You can make up to $45 per hour, depending on the type of odd job. For example, you can earn up to $22 per hour as a cleaner, or $45 per hour as a handyman, with Handy.
Other odd jobs include car cleaning, computer help, data entry, furniture assembly, interior painting, moving help, personal assistant, plumbing, and shopping and delivery.
Odd job marketplaces connect workers looking to earn money doing odd jobs with individuals or companies looking to hire people to do odd jobs.
Donating blood plasma is one of the fastest, easiest ways to make money because there is always a demand for it.
Blood plasma is the clear, yellow colored liquid portion of blood that remains after red and white blood cells, platelets and other cellular components are removed. It is made mostly of water and proteins. Blood plasma helps your body clot blood, fight infection and more. It can be easily, naturally restored by your body.
Companies pay for your blood plasma because it is an important ingredient in a number of plasma-derived medications that treat and prevent life-threatening diseases, illnesses and conditions.
Compensation for donating blood plasma varies by the donation center, month-to-month, and special promotions. You can earn up to $400 per month donating blood plasma. Some centers offer special promotions that pay a bit extra per donation, so look out for those on the website.
Donating blood plasma is similar to giving blood. The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) state that a collection of blood plasma shall not occur less than 2 days apart, or more than twice in a 7-day period.
Donating blood plasma is safe. Blood plasma donation centers must follow strict US FDA regulatory standards for plasma donation to ensure a clean, sterile environment, and the health and safety of donors.
There are hundreds of blood plasma donation centers across the United States. Visit each operator's website and find the plasma donation center near you.
You probably have used, like-new, or new clothes, shoes, handbags, costume jewelry, sunglasses, and other accessories that you no longer wear or use.
Declutter your closet and make some money fast by selling them online or in-store. Alternatively, trade in clothing and accessories for store credit, so you can go shopping for the latest fashion.
With a managed marketplace, the company takes care of the entire selling process for you, from taking professional photos to listing it for sale. On a peer-to-peer marketplace, you have to do everything yourself which takes time and effort. The upside is that you should earn more money for your items. The choice is yours.

You could make anywhere from $100 for up to 10 inches of good quality hair, up to $960 for 25 to 30 inches, and even more. For example, on the HairSellon website, someone sold 30 inches of golden brown, 4.5 inches thick, virgin hair for $2,500.
If you produce more breast milk than your baby consumes, you could sell or donate your breast milk to others who need it, and get some fast money in return.
Selling breast milk for money may sound rather strange at first. Some people may even find it offensive. But the fact is there is demand for breast milk, and thousands of mothers across the United States, and around the world, donate or sell their excess breast milk for money.
Sellers on the Only The Breast marketplace charge anywhere from 25¢ to $3 per ounce of breast milk. The vast majority charge $1 to $2 per ounce.
If you sold 25 ounces of breast milk per day, for an average of $2 per ounce, you could make $1,500 per month. That will help to pay for diapers.
Unlike blood, sperm and egg donations, breast milk is considered a food, so it is not regulated in the same way by government authorities.
Websites like Craigslist and eBay prohibit the sale of bodily fluids. The best way to find buyers for your breast milk is by posting an ad in the "Only The Breast" website. Alternatively, you can donate your breast milk to the "Mothers Milk Cooperative," which will pay you $1 per ounce. Visit each website for more information: Only The Breast and Mothers Milk Cooperative.
