11 Website Usability Testing Jobs

Do you like giving your opinion for cash? Take a look at these 11 Website Usability Testing Jobs That Pay $10-$12 For 20 minutes of your feedback!Did you know that companies will pay you to give feedback about their websites? I’ve been hearing a lot about website usability testing lately and have even started to do some tests myself. Companies want to hear from normal people like you and me; they need our feedback on their websites which has made it possible for me to put together this list of 11 website usability testing jobs.

If you’re not familiar with usability testing, you’ll be recorded with a webcam and be asked to complete a series of tasks on a website. This could be adding items to a shopping cart, or just finding a particular page of a website. Provide what you found difficult, what was easy, and your opinion and get paid for your time.

Usability testing is a great way to earn an extra income online, but it’s not going to be a full-time income, there’s just not enough tests to make a large income. If you’re interested in making a full-time income online, check out My #1 Recommendation to learn how I made over $13,000 online last month!

I go into detail in my review of each site and in the description below each name, but most tests take 15 minutes or less and pay from $8-$12 per test. Tests are limited, so these are not full-time income opportunities. But if you sign up for a few you can make some decent extra income from these usability testing jobs.


Website Usability Testing Sites

*You’ll need a webcam to complete tests, if you do not have one, I recommend this high-quality headset at Amazon.

YouEye

YouEye seems to pay the most out of any site on this list at $12 per test. Tests usually take between 10-20 minutes to complete. You will be required to get on webcam, and they will record you, your screen, and your voice.

Payments are made by PayPal only, and it looks like you can withdraw funds at any time after your feedback has been approved!

Enroll

Enroll is a bit different than most of the sites on this list. Almost all of the tests you will complete on this site only take a few minutes, and pay is from $.10-$1.50 on most. For example, you may be asked which login form you prefer. It takes just a few seconds to choose, and you’ll get paid.

Enroll does not require you to have a webcam or mic. Tests can be easily completed on Desktop, Tablet, or Smartphone. Seems to be open to anyone with a PayPal account and payments are made monthly with a $1 minimum cash out amount.

Analysia

Very similar to YouEye where you will be recorded via webcam during your test. Tests seem to take around 10 minutes each, and you’re paid $10 per test. They also pay with PayPal and funds are available shortly after your test is approved.

MyCrowd

A bit different than most of the jobs on this list. With MyCrowd you will be testing apps to find bugs. You only get paid when you’re the first person to find a bug in the app. Depending on the size of the bug you could make $1-$20 per bug found.

It seems that it helps to have some technical knowledge to find the bigger higher paying bugs, but you could give it a try and see how much you can earn.

User Testing

With this site you will need a webcam, they will record you and your voice. You’ll be asked to complete a few tasks and give feedback. Tests seem to take around 15-20 minutes and pay $10 per test.

User Testing pays by PayPal and funds will be deposited about a week after you complete a test.

StartUpLift

StartUpLift is a newer website that does not require you to have a webcam. You will be taken to the site and need to write a high-quality review to get paid. The customer, the owner of the site, chooses what feedback is helpful and you’ll get paid if your feedback is accepted.

Each chosen review pays $5, and you can review up to 5 websites per day. Payments are made by PayPal every Monday.

Erli Bird

Erli Bird lets you test apps, websites, and games. These tests pay up to $10, but most pay less based on time to complete. You’ll be given a list of different tests to join, complete the feedback, and get paid.

Erli Bird pays by PayPal; payments can be requested at any time once you have at least $5 in your account. They also offer payments through charity donations.

TryMyUI

Will require you to have a webcam. Nothing new here, you’ll be given a few tasks and are required to provide some feedback on what you found. It looks like they pay $10 per test and each takes around 15-20 minutes to complete.

TryMyUI pays via PayPal; funds will be deposited into your account within 72 hours of completion.

Userlytics

Need a webcam to join. Will complete a few tasks you’re given and be recorded during the process. Tests take no longer than 20 minutes to complete and pays $10 per test.

Userlytics pays via PayPal and funds will be added to your account as soon as your feedback has been approved as helpful.

What Users Do

A UK-based company that’s also available in the US. They make payment by PayPal to the US and direct deposit to the UK. You’ll be recorded via webcam during tests, and all tests take under 20 minutes to complete.

There is no set rate per test, but tests pay up to $8. Payments are made on the 25th of every month.

uTest

A site that lets you test out apps and find bugs. It seems like a lot of the work is location based because some apps require GPS. They don’t give out a lot of information, but I’d say pay is around $5-$10 per app tested like the industry standard.


Website Usability Testing Recommendations

There you have it, 11 website usability testing jobs. Most of these sites are very similar, but some have a few differences with pay. Like I mentioned this is part-time work because there are a limited number of tests. I recommend joining multiple sites if this seems like something you’d like to do.

For you concerned about being recorded there are a few sites that don’t require that, or you may be more interested in some of the other work at home jobs on this list.

I’ve used Enroll, YouEye, and Start Up Lift and have had no complaints or issues, but any site on this list should be well worth your time.

  1. Dear Broke,thanks for all of your useful tips. I am now approaching the world of usability and bugs testing.Are applications to become a tester for the companies in your list only open to UK and US natives? in concrete, I am Italian and reside in the Netherlands, can I apply for these tests? My English level won’t ever be as fluent as natives’, thanks in advance for your feedback

    • Hey Giulia!

      If you’re not the in the US your best bet is to join a website that offers usability tasks, for example, a site like Amazon MTurk.

      The sites on this list are really only for US readers mostly.

      Hope this helps,

  2. Mr. Brok,
    Very good information in your post, I’ve conducted my own research to have a more secure foundation of the companies of interest to me. My question is in regards to the company Enroll, as you mentioned the pay etc. where did you find this information on their website? As I searched their website I was not able to find so much as an FAQ tab. Some tabs want to navigate you to their sister/host site name Zurb Inc and I’m not sure what’s going on. So, if you have any further insight about this company I would appreciate it. By the way, I did complete a successful discovery with company YouEye.
    Thanks,
    BW

  4. Hi Brok,

    Himanshu here. I have to say I have found some great sites through your page. I’ve been taking surveys for what feels like forever and thanks to your website have also just joined a few usability testing sites.

    I have ran a few blogs in the past but was never able to make any money of them. I even added a Google Ad code + Amazon affiliates link to the blog.

    Eventually though, I got tired of trying to create new content for the blog and not making any return on my efforts so I stopped updating one of them (the other one was more of a hobby so its still active – although I haven’t updated it in a long time as well)

    Do you think I can still get some use out of WA? I don’t mind getting back into blogging (although it is def a very tiring process – but then again, which job isn’t?!)

    Cheers!

  5. Hi,
    I am having an account on whatusersdo. I do really enjoy doing this kind of job. As somebody mentioned above, a lot of test need you to be qualified and please be noted that from 1/1/2017 whatusersdo only pays you £5/$5/test not £8/$8 anymore. They also said the number of tests will increase if you join their mobile testing schemee, however i haven’t seen it yet. I do also try will trymyUi but i never had the tests as i wasn’t quick enough and i tried to set up account with usertesting, but i failed 2 times (as i didn’t pass their sample test)

  6. I signed up with UserTesting and it has been fine. The hardest part is actually qualifying for tests. Most tests are looking for a specific audience and if you don’t meet the criteria during the quick screener test, you don’t qualify. As a part-time independent contractor/stay-at-home mom, I don’t qualify for a lot of tests where they are looked for people employed full-time in certain fields. The tests that are more open (anyone can do them) get snatched up super quick so if you aren’t logging in a lot, you will miss out. You can use an app (both Android/Apple) for more opportunities and that helps get the number of tests up. When I was logging in a lot, I was getting 4 or 5 tests a week; I don’t log in as much anymore, but I still average 3 or 4 tests a month and it’s super easy. Many tests just require a microphone so you don’t have to worry about the webcam or what you look like 🙂

  7. Brok,
    Signed up to at least 4 of these sites. I took the tests, passed, and was told that I would be receiving tests shortly thereafter. Some sites will state that it is not an every day type of work, that you can not make a living doing this.
    Anyway, that was about 6 months ago. I have never heard from any these sites again. I have sent emails to these sites inquiring for a reasonable explanation, but have never … I repeat, NEVER received any type of email back.
    I had my hopes up on this one. I thought it would be fun. Unfortunately, I will never know.
    Has anyone else had this experience with these sites?
    Pat
    PS. The sites are: Jury test networks,Virtual jury,Online verdict,whatusersdo.com.

    • Hey Pat sorry to hear about your experience with the sites you listed. You should try the Enroll app. I think you’ll have a much better experience than the other sites you listed. They have very short usually 1-2 question usability tests, but there seems to be more tests sent. As you mentioned, it’s not an everyday thing, but there’s a good amount.

  9. Hi,
    This page is very interesting because I have not heard of this option to earn income on line – Usability Testing.

    I note that you say it is not suitable for a full time income and I would agree. It is totally dependent on using your time and they are one off jobs. However most would certainly supplement your PayPal balance if you had the odd half hour to spare.

    The use of a webcam in this context is also something new to me. How exactly does it work? Are you logged in to the reviewing site where you leave a record of your actions?

    Perhaps I will check out one or two of the sites you mention shortly. Thanks for the information

    • Hey Ian,

      Glad that you enjoyed this list of usability testing sites and like you mentioned it’s a great way to make a few extra bucks each month that doesn’t take up much of your time.

      With the webcam, all the sites have built in programs that access your webcam when you go to complete a test. You don’t have to do anything special. When you start the test it begins to record and when you end it will turn off. Super simple process similar to a video chat.

      Hope this helps,

      Brok

  10. I was not aware that these types of jobs existed on the internet and I have copied your url to go back and look at it later. Thanks for the tip! I don’t think I would care if I was being recorded, that wouldn’t bother me. I don’t know if I’d try out the ones where you look for bugs, I don’t know if I would be any good at it but maybe I would. Again thanks for the information!

    • Hey Melanie,

      Thanks for the comment and I agree I have no problem being recorded either. Like you said the searching for bugs sites don’t seem as easy as the others unless you have some coding and website/app building experience.

      Most people should just stick to the sites that pay you $10+ for 20 minutes of your time!

  11. Hi Brok!

    These are pretty neat. Never thought about this kind of money making before.
    I’m not to sure about being “watched” by some of those companies, but like you had mentioned there are many that don’t use webcams – I’ll try those (esp. the review site – interesting)!

    Thanks !!!

    • Hey Joanne,

      Thanks for checking out my post. I understand, a lot of people aren’t comfortable in front of a camera so there are a few options on this list that can avoid that.

      Either way any site on this list is a good way to make some extra cash on the side!

  12. This seems like a very neat way to earn a little extra cash online – one I haven’t heard of before either! You say you have to sort of judge the usability of each site – does that mean a simple search through each archive of the site looking for mistakes etc?
    I was wondering because $20 seems a lot of money for such a simple job – are there any other catches?
    Thanks for this – some great ideas to earn,
    Chris

    • Hey Chris,

      You won’t actually be looking for mistakes within most of the test you do. Usually they will ask you to complete a few tasks, for example navigate to a certain page of their site or find a particular item.

      You may end of finding a glich, but usually you will just provide how easy it was and if there was anything that made it confusing.

      Most of the sites pay from $8-$12 and there really isn’t a catch. It takes 20 minutes or less and as long as you have the right equipment you can participate.

      Hope this helps,

      Brok
