Get Untitled No. 18
After successfully clearing the mission, head on over to where the drop box would be. You then need to place Untitled No. 18 to where the drop box is.
Repeat Selling & Collecting From The Drop Box
Untitled No. 18 can be sold for 4000 Eddies at the drop box. If you collect it immediately, it will cost you 4000 Eddies, but if you close the window and reopen it, it will only cost 5 Eddies. Collect and sell to make 3995 per Untitled No. 18.
Go Around Areas Near Drop Box
A drop box can only collect up to 20,000 Eddies. It's recommended that you go around places close to the drop boxes. A recommended area is the player's house.
Always Collect When Changing Dates
The Dropbox will recover every 24 hours, but it will disappear if you leave it on sale the moment you change the date. Collect before changing the date or you won't be able to get it.
Vending Machine Marathon

Buy Vending Machine Items
|Required Time||3 minutes per run|
Eurodollars per run: 3~7,000
The "Vending Machine Marathon" is, as the name implies, a way of repeatedly farming vending machines to earn money. The method is simple: buy tons of items from a nearby vending machine and then disassemble (salvage) them all. Afterward, sell all the parts you gained while salvaging. You'll be able to make a profit from this!
Get The Mechanic Perk
By getting the Mechanic Perk, found in the Technical attribute trees, you can increase the amount of items you get from disassembling items. This will greatly improve the efficiency of this method, so we strongly recommend it.Check Out A List Of Perks Here
Save & Commit Suicide After The Sale
Since it takes a while for sold vending machine items, a quick turn around it by restarting from another point. You can do this saving then committing suicide after purchasing the items.
Fast Travel Around Vending Machines
Another option is to fast travel to other vending machines and buy items from there. Just keep buying, reassembling, and selling.

Earn Money While Leveling Up
This method is mainly used for leveling up, but it can also earn you quite a lot of Eddies too. This is a great way to do both at the same time!

Other Ways To Earn Money
|②||▼Deal With Assaults/Crime On The Map|
|③||▼Sell Items You Pick Up|
|④||▼Do Side Jobs & Gigs|
|⑤||▼Hack Vending Machines|
Stopping Assaults In Progress
Violent acts are constantly happening all around Night City. Heading over to and dealing with them will provide you a large sum of money - considering that these missions often involve just taking out a few enemies, they are quite efficient sources of money. You can also get Street Cred for these missions too, knocking out two birds with one stone!
Show Up As Icons On The Map
On your map you'll see two main types of icons that fit this description: Skull and Nailbats. Skulls represent organized crime activity, while Nailbats are assaults in progress. Both of these are a good source of money, so consider doing them whenever you're near one!
Get Tons Of Items
Taking out these enemies also has one other advantage: you'll get heaps of materials and weapons that you won't need. These can be sold right away and are an additional good source of income.
Sell Items You Pick Up
Selilng items you pick up in the world is another good method of making money. Junk items in particular have no other important uses, so you can feel free to sell them off as soon as you get them.
Do Side Jobs & Gigs
Doing Side Jobs and Gigs all over Night City will earn you cash. Just like Assaults and Crimes, these will also appear on your map, so make sure to constantly be checking if new ones have popped up! Also, some Side Job bosses may have a high Bounty on their heads, which will give you extra money!
Hack Vending Machines
If you attempt to hack a vending machine, you'll start a Breach Protocol. Successfully solving this will give you a money reward depending on the stage you cleared. However, you won't get a very large amount of money for every attempt, so we don't recommend relying on this method.
Main Uses Of Money
Prioritize Buying A Car
Night City is a sprawling metropolis with plenty of places to go. For optimal traversal, we strongly recommend buying a car to your liking.Check Out A List Of All Vehicles Here
Used For Purchasing Items
Unsurprisingly, one of the main uses of Eurodollars is to buy items, including healing items, weapons, and more! Don't overdo it with the shopping however, or you could find yourself going broke early on.
Sometimes Needed For The Story
There are a few instances over the course of Cyberpunk 2077's story where you'll have to actually spend money to progress. You might be asked to repay a particular loan, for example, so having a healthy amount saved up is always a good idea.
Used In Side Jobs Too
Side Jobs also make use of money. For example, you might be asked to bet on the outcome of a street fight!
