Frequently Asked Questions
from User Testers

How much do I get paid and when do I get paid?

Testers get paid $30 for each completed test. A test consists of a 20 minute recording and answers to four follow-up written questions. Very rarely (less than 1% of the time), a client asks for a refund because they’re dissatisfied with the user. You don’t get paid when this happens. Payments are made daily for jobs completed seven days earlier.

How soon will I be able start doing paying tests?

If your sample test is approved, you’ll start receiving emails notifying you about testing opportunities. New tests are posted daily.
