Get Paid to Test Web and Mobile Application

I mentioned that get paid to use mobile apps in last post. You also can get paid to be a tester of software application or mobile apps. Application/app developers not only need quality assurance tests for the software development, but also need user acceptance tests (beta testing) and feedbacks from general user populations.

To become a software application/app tester, you will need to have a working computer with Internet access and/or Smartphone with Internet. To test a software application/app, you will need to download and install the application/app to your PC or Smartphone and follow the test instruction to perform the test. After completion of testing, you will need to go through a post test survey or write your feedback, and then you will get paid for the testing work.

There are companies offering software testing works:

  3. Get invited to Test Cycles based on information in your profile, your tester rating and customer demand
  4. Review the scope and instructions before you start testin.
  5. Grading points are assigned for every report you submit, which factors into your tester rating. The higher your tester rating, the higher your payout rates are, which results in more money per approved report. Improve your testing skills by exposure to various testing assignments and become a better tester.
