Userzoom is a company that pays people to test websites. You can also hire userzoom to get feedback on your websites. My experience with the company is that of a ‘tester’. Using a webcam or the camera on your phone, you give feedback and complete tasks to test the usability of a particular website. The tests can either be on PC, tablet or on a smartphone. Most of the tests are short, requiring only 15-20 minutes of your time.
Once you fill out the application, you will be sent a sample test. You will need a working webcam, or smartphone with a front-facing camera. There are separate sample tests for the PC and the smartphone.
There are some studies that are ‘standard’, and they pay less, $5 per study on average. These do not require video recording. Most of the studies take between 10 and 20 minutes to complete.
Getting paid for testing has been really easy. They deposit directly into your Paypal account. Payments are made within 21 days of testing, and your tests are usually reviewed and approved within 2-3 days. So far since I joined, I have taken 6 tests, and have been paid $10 each time. I have not qualified for all tests, but there have been some good opportunities. Tests are based on user demographics.
Userzoom has been one of the better user testing sites that I have tried so far. It was very easy to register. Getting paid $10 each time for 10-20 minutes of my time has been well worth it, and they are very prompt with the payments.
