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.

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 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 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.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
