How To Get Paid For Testing Websites (No Technical Expertise Required)

Website owners are desperate to improve their sites. The better they are, the more money they make.

This is where you come in. As a site tester, you’ll provide honest feedback via video and audio as you browse a website.

How much can I make?

You get paid $10 (£8 – this will vary depending on currency rates) for each website you review and test, and $15 per website that you mobile test. Each review takes around 20 minutes.

You do not need to be a technical person for this online job, as they want real people to review websites to see what people really think.
