What is uTest?
uTest is a company that tests for usability and software bugs for their variety of clients. From mobile apps to websites, they test them all!
Is experience needed to test for uTest?
Although there is no experience requirement, in order to make a decent amount you would have to know some technical things. There are different brackets that testers fall into. After completing work, you are given a rating in response. Each rating will put you into a bracket and the higher your bracket, the higher your pay and the better chance you have to be invited to test.
How much does this pay?
uTest pay varies per project. Base pay for the project and you can earn bonuses based on bugs and certain content tested. There is also a pay increase for those with experience.
Creating an uTest Account
When you first create an account, you are asked to enter basic information related to yourself and your devices. You will want to fill these sections in completely. At uTest, you will be matched with projects based largely on the information you fill out within your profile.
There are a few ways to get tests from uTest, the first is through supply and demand by meeting the demographic information. To do this you’ll need to have your profile filled out completely as mentioned above.
The second way is the sandbox program. Many testers are invited into the sandbox program. It’s a way to move up the ranks quickly and improve your tester score. So if you get into this program and do well you’ll start to receive more and more tests overtime!
How much can you make?
There is no set amount you can earn because you are paid per approved bug you find. Higher level testers, who do this as a full time job make over $1,000 a month, and some close to $10,000.
How and when are you paid?
Payment is dispersed to PayPal or Payoneer twice a month on the 15th and last day of the month. Below you will find my last payment from them which was a bonus payment from a project.
