Affiliate Apps, Earn Money Apps

Placed Review – Legit or Scam

Placed is an affiliate company that offers apps developers a chance to earn incremental revenue from their apps. The company gives app developers a way to generate recurring income without using advertising, in-app purchases or altering the user experience.

How Does it Work:

  1. The app developer uses Placed Affiliate SDK on their app.
  2. The app uses location to generate a monthly income for the developer.
  3. When a user opts-in for location on the app, the developer is paid for this service.
  4. You continue to earn recurring revenue each month as long as the user continues to use the location services on your app.
  5. Each week the company sends a report to your email box.

Program Requirements:

  1. Both Android and iOS have requirements that the app developer must meet.
  2. If you develop an app for an Android device you must have Access_Network_State, Access_WiFi_State, Chang_Wifi_State, Review_Boot_Complete, Wake_Lock, and include the required language in your ToS and Privacy Policy for the user.
  3. iOS devices must have a Request for location permission and include required language in your ToS and Privacy Policy for the user.

How Do You Earn:

  1. When a person downloads your app and agrees to allow the location finder to be turned on. Placed can then gather the location information from the person’s device.
  2. Once the location finder is activated, you earn from the person’s location. The person doesn’t need to be using the app for you to earn from it.
  3. You will earn if anyone in the United States, Australia, Canada, and the UK agree to have the location set on your app.
  4. The company pays you through PayPal.


This is a legitimate company that pays you through PayPal. If you’re an app developer this is one way to earn from your app. There is no need to add tons of advertising to the app or even request payment for the app. As long as the user of the app agrees to allow you to gather information from their location, you’ll be paid from Placed.

  1. This sounds interesting to me. It would be good for those app developers to earn some extra money, especially those freelance developers. It is also good if no advertisement is placed in the app, as this can also be a selling point for the app, though location information is required.

    Thank you for sharing this interesting way of making money, though I don’t think I can develop an app now, especially targeting the users from those mentioned countries, it would still be nice to know more and who knows I might get an idea of creating a nice app in future. ^_^
