25 Sites That Will Pay You To Test Websites

Some products in this article are from our partners. Read our Advertiser Discloser.

How would you like to get paid to test websites?

What you might not realize is that many of the same websites you visit periodically are looking for feedback on their website. They do this to make the user experience even better than before.

To know what changes to make, companies hire people just like you to test websites and apps.

If you only have a mobile phone to test websites with, don’t worry. Every year, more websites are visited by cell phone than a computer.

In fact, Google gives preference to websites that are “mobile-friendly” in their search engine results.

Ways To Get Paid To Test Websites

Once you’re ready to begin testing, it’s time to become a website tester. You will be able to get paid weekly in cash (usually PayPal cash) or gift cards in most instances. Most tests take 20 minutes or less and pay $10 per test.

Be sure to provide honest feedback that highlights what’s good or needs improvement. Many testing sites allow the client to leave feedback on how helpful your opinions were.

Communicating effectively increases the odds of receiving more frequent testing opportunities in the future.

1. User Testing

User Testing pays you $10 per 20-minute video by completing a series of tasks to help you know where to interact with the website or app being tested.

Once you are finished recording your responses, User Testing will send you payment in seven days via PayPal.

Testing is open to U.S. and international residents with an active PayPal account.

2. Userfeel

You can also earn $10 per 20-minute video with Userfeel via PayPal or Payoneer. In addition to computer and mobile phone testing, you can also test with your Apple watch or smartwatch too!

This testing site is located in the U.K. but accepts testers from all over the world.

3. TryMyUI

At TryMyUI, your usability test will consist of the following:

  • Video recording of your screen and voice as you test the website or app
  • Written responses to a short wrap-up survey

Each test will approximately take 20 minutes and will pay $10. All payments are paid via PayPal each Friday.

4. WhatUsersDo

WhatUsersDo offers three to five tests per month and pays $5 per test. You will be able to test new websites and even existing websites that are undergoing improvements.

Payments are made on the 25th of every month via PayPal and you can earn additional cash by participating in quarterly competitions and offers.

Testers are accepted from all over the world with a computer, tablet, or mobile device.

5. Enroll

In addition to testing websites and apps by recording your video responses, Enroll also lets you make money completing micro-tasks like data entry or labeling website buttons and functions that pay less but also take less time to complete.

Membership is open to global citizens with a computer, tablet, or mobile phone. All payments will be made via PayPal. You will receive an email when new testing opportunities become available.

6. StartUpLift

New and upcoming websites trust the opinions of StartUpLift website testers. You will earn $5 via PayPal for each completed test. In fact, you need a valid PayPal address to register as a tester.

If you’re an active tester, StartUpLift allows you to complete up to five tests per day. Unlike some of the other testing sites mentioned here, all StartUpLift tests are written responses only–no video or audio recording required. 

Because all surveys are word-based, this can be an excellent testing option if you’re nervous when speaking into a microphone.

7. TestingTime

When you have 30 to 90 minutes to complete a test and can either participate in a Skype session or at the customer’s office, TestingTime can be a better option.

You can expect to earn 50 euros (approximately $61 US dollars) per test to test new products, apps, and websites. TestingTime’s tests include a live moderator that you will interact with during the entire test, instead of receiving a self-guided checklist of tasks that you are responsible for completing yourself.

8. Userlytics

You will test the following digital products with Userlytics:

  • Websites
  • Apps
  • Prototypes
  • Videos
  • Advertisements

Tests will be performed for start-ups and well-known corporations. Each test will take between 20 and 40 minutes to complete.

You will earn $10 per test by PayPal. If you’re looking for a variety of testing opportunities beyond websites and apps, Userlytics can be a fun and engaging option.

9. UserZoom

UserZoom offers two different types of surveys:

  • Standard (written responses only)
  • Audio and Video responses

You will earn $5 per standard survey and $10 for surveys that require an audio and video response.

Most tests take 10 to 20 minutes to complete and payment will be sent to your PayPal account 21 days after the test is completed.

10. Validately

Like a couple other testing sites, Validately offers self-directed “talk aloud” tests without a moderator and a live test guided by a moderator.

Tests that don’t require a moderator can be taken at your leisure and only take five minutes on average to complete, but only pay $5 to $10 per test. The moderator-led live tests take approximately 30 minutes to complete and pay at least $25 per test.

All payments will be sent by PayPal within seven days of completing the test.

11. Analysia

Each Analysia test takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete and pays $10. You will need a microphone to complete each test as you think aloud to record your survey responses.

All payments will be sent via PayPal and you might expect to complete a few tests per month–about one per week if you provide quality feedback but it’s possible to qualify for one test per day.

12. Beta Testing

To test unreleased beta versions of websites, app, and software, Beta Testing will pay you at least $10 per test. How much you make per test depends on the test length and the equipment needed.

For example, you will earn more for a test that requires audio and video recording instead of a test that only requires written responses.

Once a Beta Testing test project is complete, you can expect payment by PayPal seven days later. You will receive up to five test invitations per month.

13. Ferception

Get paid up to $200 per month by PayPal or Amazon gift card with Ferception. As an exception to the rule, you can become a tester if you’re at least 16 years old. You will test either an app or a mobile website with your smartphone or tablet.

No test requires audio or video recording; you only have to take a screenshot and write a positive or negative review of what you like and what you would prefer to see or experience instead.

14. UserBrain

UserBrain is exclusively for PCs with Chrome extension and iOS devices when you download the mobile app–Android devices aren’t supported at this time. All tests require 5 to 15 minutes of your time as your record your thoughts while completing a series of task.

Once your responses have been recorded and all tasks are complete, you earn $3 in PayPal cash and you can request payment when your balance reaches $10 (4 surveys).

Don’t forget to watch the example video and read UserBrain’s 5-star UserBrain tester tips before you begin the first test.

15. Brain Labs

For quick two-day payment, consider Brain Labs, formerly User Conversation. Every 20-minute review nets $10 in profit and you will be paid in two days via PayPal.

If you produce a stellar review, it might even be featured on the ultra-selective Launching Next–a website featuring the latest trending startups that are on track to become a large household name.

Brain Labs accepts testers from virtually every country on the globe and you only need a PC or Mac with a microphone to start.

16. Amazon Mechanical Turk

MTurk is one of the very few ways you can test websites and earn Amazon gift cards or cash.

Most of these tests will have a smaller payout than the other recommendations on this list and shouldn’t be your first option of pursuit. Some of the current tests pay anywhere from $0.02 for a two-minute test to $3.30 for uploading a 5-minute video.

However, MTurk can be a good option if you like performing a variety of tasks like online surveys, data entry, transcribing audio and video captions, or performing web research for only a few minutes at a time.

Other Website Testing Opportunities

If software testing is your specialty, you can boost your earning power with these websites.

Although casual testers can apply as well, most of these clients are looking for a technical analysis more than your opinion on the appearance and usability of a particular website or app.

17. Fiverr

As an entrepreneur, you might be able to earn more by advertising your own website and app testing services on Fiverr. As its name indicates, gigs start at $5 but you can charge more for complex tasks.

For example, you might decide to charge $10 to test a website for 20 minutes by analyzing the homepage and clicking on a few pages. If the client wants you to test their shopping cart and try making a purchase for 20 minutes, you might charge $15 or $20 instead.

To diversify your income streams, you can also offer on Fiverr to design websites and apps or even fix bugs found by website testers too.

18. MyCrowd

Professional programmers and testers will like MyCrowd where you can be paid to look for programming bugs and run tests on websites and apps.

How much you make depends on the test focus and the quality of your findings. To ensure you get paid and don’t overlap a previous tester’s work, each MyCrowd test comes with a list of previously found bugs. In exchange for your attention to detail, you can earn cash or prizes.

19. Testbirds

Testbirds is conducting tests on the following products:

  • Websites and portals
  • Mobile apps
  • Internet of things (IoT)
  • Wearables
  • Games

The average test pays up to $20 per test and takes 20 minutes to complete. You can earn more if you find more advanced bugs or defects.

20. test IO

Top companies and budding startups trust test IO for quality website and app test results.

Earn up to $50 per test and you will receive your first test as soon as you complete the registration process. With other testing sites, you must first submit an application video and wait for approval.

To receive more test invitations, register more devices and interests. As your test IO experience level grows, you will receive testing opportunities more frequently and with higher payouts.

21. Tester Work

Tester Work is another testing platform intended for experienced website and app QA testers. You will either be paid by the number of bugs found or a fixed amount for a test case execution where you analyze test scripts and user commands.

You will be paid by PayPal or Upwork contract depending on how you receive the invitation. Payment will be sent two weeks after you complete the test.

22. Upwork

Upwork is another freelancer platform where you bid on product testing jobs. If a client accepts your proposal, you get paid to test the product.

By being a good reviewer, you will receive positive feedback that will help you receive invitations to interview with prospective clients instead of finding and pitching to clients yourself.

Some website testers make a full-time income from Upwork because you can work directly for a large client with the possibility of getting long-term work.

This can be better than doing a one-time gig with another platform that might randomly assign you a test to complete.

23. uTest

uTest is a more in-depth testing community that professional software testers will want to seriously consider. You will find the following amenities at uTest:

  • Paid testing opportunities
  • Courses to learn new skills
  • Discussion forums
  • Games

This all-in-one platform can be a fun place to make money, improve your skillset, and receive career advice with the forums.

How much you make per test depends on the test and your experience level. You will earn points by testing websites and apps that can be redeemed for cash and other rewards.

24. FlexJobs

FlexJobs is a great resource for website testers looking for flexible work arrangements.

The site has a wide range of job categories:

  • Computer and IT
  • Telecommuting
  • Freelance
  • Part-time
  • Alternative schedule job opportunities

This makes it an ideal platform for website testers who may be looking for a flexible work arrangement that allows them to work from home or on a flexible schedule.

25. IntelliZoom.com

IntelliZoom.com is an excellent resource for website testers, particularly for those who are focused on user experience and usability. The platform offers a range of tools and features that make it easy to test websites and identify areas for improvement.

One of the standout features of IntelliZoom is its user testing tool, which allows you to conduct user tests on your website and gather feedback from real users. This is an invaluable resource for understanding how people are interacting with your site and identifying areas for improvement.

IntelliZoom also offers a range of tools for analyzing website performance, including heatmaps that show where users are clicking and scrolling, and user journey maps that show how people are navigating through your site.

  1. The list is really great and helpful. Just the thing to try when I have spare time. Thanks for your efforts.
    I might also add a bit myself. I once stumbled upon Insolvo.com and even though the website is not generally oriented at testing, but with the scope of different tasks appearing there, I definitely saw testing tasks a few times. IIRC, there were tasks for testing mobile apps, some different software both on Mac and PC and even for Unix systems. If you’re reading this and it helped you, you’re welcome.

    1. Julie Bridwell says:

      Hi Greg. Glad you found our article helpful. And thanks for the site you shared. I’ll check it out.

  2. Wow! This is an eye opener. This is very new to me, but I must lay my hands on any one of them. Thank you so much.

  3. I have been working on UserTesting since about 2012. At first, there were only about a test a day or so that I qualified for. This past summer (2019) was awesome. I was pulling between $400 – $500 per week, sometimes more. However, in August, things started to slow down. They fell off a cliff from October on and I was lucky to earn $30 – $50 per week. Finally, finally though things seem to be starting to pick up a bit. The only problem with UserTesting is their tester support. The quality and courtesy started nose diving in 2018. Now, if you ask them to investigate a low rating, they always take the side of the company that hired them and blame you for things like their recorder failing. They will suspend your ability to test arbitrarily, without even contacting you first, and they are EXTREMELY slow to respond to emails, unless it benefits them. You can make some good money on UesrTesting, when their business is booming, but don’t depend on it, as things change in a heartbeat. You will also be doing tests that really help companies improve their user experience on their web site. It is a good feeling when everything works as it should. They pay by paypal 7 days after the test is taken. They do ask a buch of marketing and demographic questions when you sign up, so they can better target tests to your abilities, experiences, and interests. All in all, they are a good company to work for, except for recent experiences with tester support.

  4. I’d really like to start this job as a website tester, but my phone’s camera got damaged, it can no longer take photos and videos. Only the voice recorder is functional.
    Could there be any platform that I can work in my situation?

    1. Do you have a computer that you could use that has a camera that could work? Otherwise, some don’t require any sort video or audio and just need a written response (point 6). Check through the rest of the article and see what else there is that could work for you! Best of luck!

  5. Christopher says:

    I really appreciate your writing. It’s more detailed than most, if not all, of the write-ups I came across.

  6. Jacqueline says:

    I thought I already knew most of the sites. I was wrong. Thank you for putting this together!

    1. You’re very welcome! I hope you can use some of them.

  7. Denise Hilton says:

    It looks like Analysia doesn’t work anymore. Users have reported that they don’t respond to applications anymore. There’s a new alternate called “TestingTime”. I came to know about it at webemployed.com in the post, How to Become a Website Tester.

    1. Thanks for letting us know.

  8. This article is really the ultimate reference for the best app testing websites. I am already enrolled in some of the above-mentioned sites and getting paid. However, this article would be more helpful to list other test case specific sites similar to Tester Work. Your effort is highly appreciated.

    1. Well, almost any post titled “# ways to…” or “# companies that…” will include only a partial list. Sometimes there are too many to list them all. Thanks for mentioning another one for readers to choose from! We appreciate you dropping by! πŸ™‚

  9. I might try some of these website testing sites, although I’m a little nervous about them recording me on a webcam.

    1. I could see that. I’ve done some of them myself and they haven’t been weird or anything.
