I assure you that, in no time, I say you will have achieved your goal and purchased everything you want within GTA. There is nothing left for me to do, except to wish you happy reading and have fun!

How to make money on GTA 5 Online in the beginning

GTA Online is chock full of activities that can earn you money. The chances, of course, increase as the player progresses in the adventure, but from the beginning there is a certain discrepancy between the various actions, with some guaranteeing more money than others.

My advice is to focus immediately on the “resale” of cars . To do this, just take any car (even parked) and take it to one of the centers called Los Santos Customs , which you find on the map.

Be careful though: the state of the car is very important and along the way you will have to try to make as few accidents as possible, otherwise the actual value of the vehicle will be reduced. Also, some cars may not be resellable and unfortunately there is no way of knowing this until you reach the resale point. In any case, I assure you that in this way you make a lot of money right away, even if the maximum value for the single machine is around $ 13,000 .

Also pay attention to the car model: clearly the more luxury a vehicle is, the higher its value. The cars that are worth more are the following: Vapid Peyote (12,940 dollars), Albany Buccaneers (9,875 dollars), Lampadati Felon GT (9,500 dollars), Declass Tornado (9,040 dollars) and Lampadati Felon (9,000 dollars).

I advise you, however, not to focus only on these machines, as they are very difficult to find, but to bring every car that seems beautiful to you to see in the Los Santos Customs centers. Base vehicles could also earn you around $ 2,000 . In addition, every now and then the character called Simon will send you SMS messages in which he will invite you to search for and bring him certain vehicles: I advise you to take this into consideration, since it pays very well.

To underline the existence of an important limit: you can sell only one machine per game day (which is equivalent to 48 minutes in the real world). Also, the police may clearly dislike the fact that you are a thief and I therefore urge you to be careful of nearby patrols when you are taking a vehicle. In the period of time when you cannot resell cars, I advise you to devote yourself to the missions of Lester (you find them where there is an ‘ L ‘ on the map), which are simple to complete and guarantee a good number of greenbacks .

Be careful though: when you are at the beginning, it is very simple to be robbed by more skilled players. For this reason, my advice is to deposit money every time you finish a business. To do this, use one of the many ATM points on the map or use your smartphone, by accessing the Web and selecting Financial Services from the section dedicated to the bank.

How to get money on GTA Online

Once you are comfortable with GTA Online’s earnings / deposits system, you can start considering other ways to take money home. The activities offered by the State of San Andreas are countless and below you will find a list that will help you learn how to earn money on GTA Online .


The missions are certainly the most common way to earn, as they are designed to be affordable at the same time and very profitable. They are hundreds and I assure you that by setting the difficulty “difficult” and getting help from one or more friends, you will soon reach an average profit of about $ 10,000 per mission, which is not bad! He thinks you may also be able to earn over $ 100,000 in an hour-long game session. In case you are unable to complete missions with this difficulty, you can always retrace your steps.

Listed below are the names of some missions you should keep in mind as you progress through the adventure: Blow to the Pier / Pier Pressure (offered by Gerald, unlocks at level 6, ends in minutes and pays up to $ 15,000. , up to 4 players), Explosion I / Blow Up I (Simeon Yetarian, level 12 and pays over $ 18,000, up to 2 players), Spy / Rooftop Rumble (Martin Madrazo, level 75 and pays $ 20,000, up to 4 players) and Waste Operation / Trash Talk (Martin Madrazo, level 81 and pays $ 15,000 in minutes, up to 6 players).

Many users think that these are the missions with the best time / earnings ratio and therefore I advise you not to underestimate them. In addition, all the missions mentioned are playable in multiple players and you can therefore get help from your friends. I want to underline the fact that the data shown are indicative, as GTA Online is constantly updated and therefore may vary.

To find a mission, you just have to open the map and look for the initial letter of the character you want to collaborate with (e.g. ‘ L ‘ for Lester), go to that place and follow the directions. Alternatively, you can go to Settings , select the ONLINE tab and then click on Activities , Quick game and Start a mission .


Another popular way to make money on GTA Online is to participate in races . The figure that is obtained, in this case, changes according to the number of participants and the position where the race ends. In any case, I assure you that you can earn a lot of money.

There are different types of race and, of course, there are many vehicles available: cars, airplanes, motorcycles and so on. There is a lot of variety in this sense, and multi-vehicle races may also happen , in which you start with a bike and arrive at the finish with an airplane. Do not underestimate the fact that you will receive money in any case, even if you do not reach the finish line in time.

To find a race, all you have to do is open the map and find a flag icon . After that, press on it and go to that place. Finally, position yourself above the race circle and press the button that appears on the screen to start it. Alternatively, go to Settings and select ONLINE , Activity , Quick Match and Start a race in succession .

Robberies to shops

The robberies shops are one of the most profitable activities of GTA Online, but at the same time you can take great risks. In fact, the robbery attracts the police and your level of suspicion (the stars that appear at the top right) could create more than a few headaches.

For this reason, I recommend that you keep the robberies only for an advanced stage of the game or only do one at a time. In fact, one of the most used methods by more experienced players is to carry out two or three robberies in a row , in order to gain a lot of loot. However, in this case the level of suspicion rises dramatically. In short: I recommend that you do this only when your character is at advanced levels (over 50).

I remind you that there are twenty shops to rob in the game map. To rush the shopkeeper and get the swag delivered as quickly as possible, you can shoot the shelves (without killing anyone, I recommend!) Or speak through the microphone of your headset. My advice is to take advantage of the first one, as the second solution sometimes doesn’t work as it should.

To find a shop, just open the map , scroll the list of activities on the right and select the Shop item . After that, press on one of the icons that appear on the screen and go to that place. Finally, enter the shop, select any weapon from the selection wheel and point it at the shopkeeper .

The shopkeeper will start to extract the money from the cashier (it usually takes a few seconds) and will deliver it to you. Once you get the loot, run as fast as you can, sow the police and you can keep the swag without consequences (apart from the moral ones, but we are always talking about GTA!).

LTS (Last Team Standing)

All players chasing money must try the Last Team Standing mode at least once . This mode is able to guarantee a fairly large loot and, by becoming skilled in it, you can quickly earn a lot of money. The problem here is made up of the other players, who will certainly not miss the opportunity to try to steal your prize pool.

LTS (Last Team Standing) provides that two teams of players ( up to 16 participants ) will compete in various activities to try to get a lot of money. Each round won can amount to around $ 5,000 , while a lost round can still earn around $ 3,000.

It all depends on the type of LTS you are participating in. In any case, I assure you that you will not regret having tried this mode. My advice, in this case, is to buy the upgrades that the game offers you (if present, e.g. the super heavy jacket ) in the game preparation screen, to make the most of the available shelters and keep an eye the minimap present in the lower left, where the position of the enemies could be reported.

To participate in a Last Team Standing, go to Settings and select the ONLINE tab . After that, press on the Activity item , select Quick Match and then press on  Start a Last Team Standing . Perfect, now the mode in question will start and you can play with other users.


The Survival mode is very popular with players who like to come up against ordate of enemies, trying to get the better. Clearly, the difficulty rises with each new wave, with the first one that will see the enemies equipped only with pistols, the second that will see them equipped also with submachine guns and so on.

Although it is a fun activity to play even in single, my advice is to play together with your friends, if you want to have hopes of earning substantial loot. As for the mode itself, it is good to take a look at the map where the battle is held at the end of each wave. In fact, those few seconds of calm could help you find a good cover in which to recharge your energy when your character is injured.

In case you manage to complete the ten waves , you will receive a prize of $ 30,000 . Be careful though: Survival mode will only be unlocked at rank 15, so I recommend that you take a look at the chapter on how to make money on GTA 5 Online at the beginning in case you have not met this requirement.

To play Survival mode, you must have completed the tutorial that invited you to play the character Ron when you have reached level 15. Don’t worry if you have not accepted: just look for the letter ‘ R ‘ on the map and go in that place to access the mission.

Other activities to earn money

GTA Online has a myriad of choices and I assure you that you will never be left without anything to do. Every minute you will receive a proposal for a new activity on your mobile phone in the game or an event will start. This could already be a good method to replenish your speakers, but the secondary activities that I recommend you use to earn as much money as possible are the following.

  • Robbing passersby . But first I advise you to look carefully at your victim before hitting her: usually, people who have a lot of money can already be recognized by the elegance of the clothes. One of the best places to lurk is clearly in front of an ATM. Almost needless to say, after the regrettable (but fruitful, for the purpose of the game) gesture, you must be careful not to get caught by the police.
  • The Shots . These activities require a previous preparatory mission and are therefore actually quite long to complete. In addition, the player must own a luxury apartment to access it. However, the loot can go as high as $ 2,000,000 and is therefore worth it.
  • The sizes . In some cases, a player may have behaved so badly that he had a bounty put on his head. You just have to find it to collect the loot.

These are the methods I recommend to quickly earn money on GTA Online. However, I have only touched the surface of how many activities you can perform to replenish your account in the game and therefore I invite you to look for yourself the combination of activities that you enjoy the most and at the same time make you earn enough.

How to have infinite money on GTA Online

There are of course methods ( tricks ) to make infinite money on GTA Online. However, I strongly advise against their use, as I assure you that the fun will be lacking and you could ruin the gaming experience of others. In addition, GTA developers may also decide (in severe cases) to ban your account and you may therefore lose all the progress you have accumulated and may no longer be able to play.

I invite you, therefore, to be wary of those who promise simple methods to earn infinite money, since you may face unpleasant surprises . I assure you that playing GTA Online is fun even without tricks and that following the instructions that I illustrated in the chapters on how to earn on GTA 5 Online at the beginning and on how to have money on GTA Online you will be able to build a nice capital in no time. Good fun!
