How to make money in GTA Online


Wondering how to make money fast in GTA Online? In terms of economy, GTA Online is the polar opposite to the single-player component of GTA V. 

Not only is cash comparatively hard to come by, there are a huge number of ways you’ll want to invest it – or, depending on your point of view and proclivities, blow it. You’ve got to have some fun after all that hard work, right?

One of the best tips for newbies is to stay in touch with what’s happening in-game through the Rockstar Social Club, or the handy promotion splash screens that pop up on loading screens. 

They let you know what’s new to the game and, more importantly, what activities or events Rockstar is prioritising, including which of them reward double reputation and cash.

Another critical tip for beginners is to knock out your daily objectives whenever possible. They’re fairly simple to accomplish and reward a decent chunk of change each day.

More importantly, there are cumulative rewards for consistently completing them. Finish every daily objective for a week and you’ll net $100K; polish off a month’s worth and a massive $500K will pad out your bank account. 

Once you’ve piled up your first $200k, another big income channel becomes available. Spend that $200k on a high-end apartment and, assuming you’re at least rank 12, you’re able to start hosting heists.

Heists are not only an easy way to start pulling down much larger infusions of cash, they’re some of the most fun to be had in GTA Online, especially if you’ve got a crew of friends to dive in with you.

Once you’ve accumulated $1.25m you can purchase your first corporate office, as well as a special warehouse from which you can conduct cargo missions. 

Cargo missions task you with retrieving valuable commodities like electronics or drugs in large shipments and returning them to your warehouse, from where you can resell them at a massive markup to wholesale buyers.
