Assembling products from home can supplement your existing income with a payment for each group of correctly finished pieces. The various companies that provide kits for assembly work range from jewellery to electronics companies. It is important to research each company before joining their home assembly team. Contact other work-at-home assemblers and the Better Business Bureau to determine which companies are scams and which ones actually pay. Some scam assembly companies sell you a kit to make select number of products and then refuse to pay you because the work never passes quality control. The scam artists make their money selling the supplies to unsuspecting customers.

Skill level:
Moderately Challenging


  1. 1

    Order a kit through one of the many companies offering at-home assembly work. Choose the kit that best meets your qualifications and interests. You can choose from crafts, electronics or jewellery.

  2. 2

    Examine the entire contents of the kit for missing or damaged supplies. Contact the company if there are any replacement parts needed to fulfil the required order. Pay close attention to the sample product supplied in your kit to fully grasp how the product is created.

  3. 3

    Assemble one or two items and send them in for a review before continuing with any more assembly work. Once your work has been approved, finish assembling the products in your kit.

  4. 4

    Ship the finish products back to the supplier for final inspection and payment. Remember to note whether you want your deposit rolled over into another kit or refunded with your payment.

  5. 5

    Rework items sent back that didn't pass inspection. Pay close attention to what the company specified about the problems. Mail back the repaired products for payment.

Tips and warnings

  • If you have never done at-home assembly work, start with a simple project designed for beginners,
  • Ask questions if you are not sure about the requirements to fulfil an order.
  • Speak with other assemblers working with the same company to get hints and tips about the work.
  • Create your own marketable product and sell it online if other companies fail to meet your goals.
  • Research the different companies, like Tiny Details, Christian Miniatures and New England Crafters, to determine their qualifications as an employer for work-from-home assembly jobs. Their websites provide many details about the type of work they need done and the numerous projects available. The companies require a deposit for the kit, which is either refunded with your first payment or rolled over to secure another kit. The kits are created to accommodate beginning assemblers as well as advanced workers.
