The sharing economy is becoming an increasingly popular way for Australians to earn money from their spare time or unused assets. The Sharing Hub, a Sydney accelerator for sharing economy startups, estimates that one in ten Australians are participating as suppliers in the sharing economy to boost their income. About half are also using the sharing economy as customers to take advantage of the more affordable services.
The sharing economy allows people to monetise their extra time or physical assets while consumers get cheaper services through the removal of a middleman. Made famous by the likes of Uber and Airbnb, the Australian sharing economy is experiencing mass adoption, which means it’s the perfect time to get involved, either as a supplier looking to boost your income, or a customer who wants to make savings. Here are the top 30 sharing economy sites.
