Website testing

Become a website tester and earn a little income every month, it won’t be a lot of money, but it is a good way of earning some money on the internet. I want to talk about the website Whatusersdo which has over 30,000 users worldwide. Since becoming part of a bigger company called Userzoom, it has opened up the opportunities for people to complete more website reviews. I will go through what it is like, from my own experience of being a user on this website.


Anybody worldwide can sign up and they pay through paypal on the 25th of each month. On average, you could earn up to £15 per month, maybe more, depending on how well you complete every test. The applying process does not take long, roughly 15 minutes filling in personal details and interests. There is a practice test included to pass before you can start, this is straightforward to do. Once successful there is an app to downloaded on the computer to record your voice and screen. Do not worry it only opens up when recording the tests, not to capture everything you do on your computer.

It is your chance to make a difference to the internet, by taking website tests for hundreds of companies like the clothing brand Asos and Virgin Atlantic, even reviewing for governments and TV channels. There are tasks to complete and can take 5 to 10 minutes mostly to complete although some can take longer. The pay is good and can be better value for time than paid surveys, paying £5 for each test. You recieve emails every time a test is available to be completed, some will have screening questions to see if you match the criteria.

They may want you to checkout with a product to see what you think of the online purchasing process without going through to purchasing of course and inputting fake details. Another scenario could be testing out a government website, navigating through menus to complete a task. The websites can be old or new, that you test out and there is the option to do tests on your mobile phone and tablet with downloading the recording application. Whilst going through they like you to do verbal answers and also speak through the experience of using the website.

What is required to be a tester on this website

  • A computer that has the following

  • An Internet Explorer 11 Browser or the most current Edge. You can also use Chrome, Firefox or Safari.
  • You need high speed broadband

There is the bonus of earning through referring people to Whatusersdo. Each person that you refer, you will earn £2 every time, but only after they complete their first website test. This is paid also on the 25th of each month.

My Assessment

Depending on whether you meet different criteria, there usually is an abundance of tests available and you are sure to be hopefully earning from £5 up to £15 a month, maybe a little more. Be careful as they will randomly quality control check a test that you have completed, if it has been marked poorly by the client, you will not get any tests for 2 to 3 months. Make sure to answer the questions properly and in as much detail as you can. If it keeps happening, you could be kicked off permanently.

Overall they always pay you on time and the tests are mostly easy and interesting to do.

  1. Hmm interesting.Is there an option to earn more than that each month? And if so, would you say the work is worth it for the time you need to put in? How is it different to online surveys? Good that they have some quality control going in that your tests could be audited. This should weed out people who are just trying to scam the system. Thanks for the info.

    1. It depends on how many you qualify for, but it won’t be mega bucks. You could sign up for others and get a decent monthly income. I would say it is worth the time, where it is £5 paid for each test. I look in terms if you were in a job being paid lets say £8 an hour, well with just doing one website test you have already earned £5 within 5 up to 15 minutes. Although of course you are not going to be earning as much as a part or full time job. I think doing paid website tests are a good way of earning a little extra income. 

      Online surveys are just click and typing answers, watching videos maybe and partly doing a survey on maybe a function of a website. But paid websites it involves recording your voice and screen whilst you test and analyse the website. You are just doing that every time, where paid surveys differ but mostly click and type answers. 

      Thank you Liz

  2. Hi Eden;

    I absolutely love this insightful article, because it is full of great information. This is fascinating and intriguing to me. You did an excellent job of providing education and resources; The article was well written and easy to understand.

    I have heard of whatuserdo before now, but the benefit wasn’t elaborate the way you did in your article. This is an eye opener for me and I appreciate the fact that you have opened our eyes to the beauty of the website tester.

    1. Hello Ola,

      It is really interesting to test different websites and Whatusersdo is a good site to sign up to, for being a website tester.

      Thank you

  3. Hi Eden thank you for bringing this opportunity across to me. I have no single doubt that this program is legit. They do not promise you $2000 daily like many scam site do. I love the concept. The only discouraging factor is that it appears they don’t have enough jobs to be completed. Doing only 3 reviews a month to earn 15 Euro minimum is very little. That’s my thought. 

    1. Hello Paschal,

      I think in terms for being paid £5 for each test being not too long to complete is better value than paid surveys for example. It’s good for a little income and could be combined with other paid website test sites. It just depends on how many tests that you qualify for, but yes it is not something where you are going to earn mega bucks. 

      Thank you for your comment Paschal

      Best Wishes
