Hello nerds! Today, I am going to share with you a list of all the places where you can start your website testing as a side hustle.
Website Testing is a great way to make some extra cash and with most of the usability testing websites paying around $10, it can be a good side gig.
What is Website testing?
Simply put, as a website tester you have to go to a website and see the functionality of different sections of that site. You check if everything is working on the site.
As you navigate, you have to speak out about your opinion on the website. With some testing companies, you might need to use a webcam as well.
Do I need any technical expertise?
No. You don’t need to have any prior experience or knowledge for this, but you should know how to go about and check a website. A basic understanding of navigation on the web is enough for this role.
Apart from that, you should have good command over English and express your opinion clearly, as you get paid for your honest reviews.
Do I need any special equipment to become a website tester?
You need a basic set up like a PC or a laptop, webcam or headphones and a good internet connection.
How much can I earn for this side gig?
Most of the website testing companies pay around $10 for about 20 minutes of work.
Now let’s see the places where you can start website testing,

There you have it; all these are some places to start usability testing. This is surely not a technical job, and the only thing you need to do is navigate around a website or app and give your opinion.
To make the most of the website testing, you need to keep these in mind:
- The workflow might not be continuous, so if you are interested in this position, try to sign up for as many websites as possible. That way you get invited for more tests
- For some roles, you might need to use a webcam along with a microphone, so being comfortable recording your video is vital
- Website Testing is not a full-time job, so don’t expect to make a full-time income from this. Website Testing can be a great extra cash maker
- It is also recommended to accept the invites as soon as you get them in the email
