Website Usability Tester
Become a tester and earn $10 per test
Each test lasts 10-20 minutes and is completed with your home computer or smartphone. Read the following instructions and watch the example video to understand what our customers are looking for from a tester.
What do usability testers do?
They conduct usability tests on websites. 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.
Do testers need to buy products or services from the websites they test?
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.
What equipment do I need to be a tester?
In order to test websites and get paid $10 per test, you need to have a Windows or Mac computer. If on Windows, you need to have Windows 7 or newer.
Your computer also needs to have a microphone, either internal (like most laptops have) or external. If you need to buy an external microphone, even the cheapest ones selling for around $2 will work.
In what language should I speak?
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.
What is the qualification test, and why do I need to take it?
The qualification test is the initial test each new tester needs 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.
What are screener questions?
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.
What makes a good tester?
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.
