Each test lasts 5 to 60 minutes and is completed with your computer, tablet or smartphone. Most tests are 20 minutes where you earn $10.
Read the following instructions and watch the short training video to understand what our customers need from you as a tester.
You will not get paid if you don't watch this training video and read the frequently asked questions and answers below. Start by watching the video.
They conduct usability tests on websites, apps or prototypes. Their job is to imagine a given scenario and perform certain tasks, like finding a product in an online store and going through the checkout process. This helps site owners find and fix usability issues.
No. You may be asked to go through the checkout process of online stores, but most of the time the scenarios will ask you to stop before clicking on the final submit button. In any case, you SHOULD NOT enter your real credit card details while performing a test.
In order to test websites and get paid, you need to have a Windows or Mac computer, or a mobile phone or a tablet. If on Windows, you need to have Windows 7 or newer.
Your device also needs to have a microphone, either internal (like most devices have) or external. If you need to buy an external microphone, even the cheapest ones selling for around $2 will work.
No, you should use fake details while conducting a test. Never use real credit card details, home address, social security numbers, phone or passwords. As for email, since some services require an authentication based on it, you may create an email address just for the tests.
You should speak in the language of the test. You will be sent tests in your native language and some times in another language that you have set as fluently spoken in your profile. So, you should never be asked to speak in languages that you do not speak fluently.
The qualification test is the initial test that we may ask you to take in order to verify that they have a microphone and that they can speak their thoughts while completing tasks. Based on this qualification test, testers receive the first rating that will determine if and how often they'll get to do paid usability tests. There is no payment for the qualification test.
Before you start a test, you may be asked to answer one or more screener questions in order to determine that you are the right fit for the test. For example, if the client needs to test a website selling baby strollers, you may be asked whether or not you have small children. If you meet the criteria, you will proceed to take the test. If not, another tester will be notified.
The answers you provide to screener questions are strictly confidential and none of your personal data (including your name or email) is revealed to the client or any other third party.
You must answer screener questions honestly. Otherwise, you waste your time and the client's time, and you will not get paid.
Good usability testers speak as they surf the website. They express their thoughts and can provide useful feedback on how they expected the website to work. Watch the video to see an example of a helpful usability tester.
A good tester can provide useful information on a site's usability.
For some people, testing is naturally easy to do; others may need some practice. Watch the video on this page to get a feeling for what kind of feedback we need.
After the initial qualification test which is not paid, you get paid $3 for 5-minutes tests, $10 for 20-minutes tests, $20 for 40-minutes tests and $30 for 60-minutes tests. You receive payment after approval, about one week after the test, to your Userfeel Wallet and you can transfer from there to your PayPal account at any time. If you don't have a PayPal account, you can open one at www.paypal.com.
We want to provide our clients with a service of high quality, so we will have to deny payment and redo the test with another tester in the following cases:
When signing up as a tester, you are asked about your basic demographic data, like age, native language, and level of web experience. This is done because our clients want to test with different tester profiles based on their needs. None of your personal data (name, last name, or email) are ever revealed to third parties.
The amount of money you can earn depends on your rating as a tester. You get rated by the Userfeel team for the first qualification test, then you get rated by our customers for each paid test you take. The better your rating, the more tests will be assigned to you. The amount of tests you receive will also depend on the amount of orders we get that ask for your demographic profile.
There's no guaranteed number of tests. You may get 5 tests a day, you may get no tests for a year.
Notifications about available tests are sent to testers when an order for a test is placed. Orders may be placed at any time of the day (or night). If you don't start the test when you receive the notification, another tester will be assigned to it. Not taking tests that are assigned to you doesn't negatively affect your rating.
To become a tester, you need to register here.
No, unless the current test requires you to do so.
Besides usability tests, you may also take surveys and get paid for them. These surveys are provided for some countries by external partners, and payment amounts may vary. Payments are typically made within 6 weeks after completion of the survey. There are cases that may take longer.
