Start getting paid to test websites on BetaPunch:
FAQ For Testers:
How do I become a tester and is there a password associated with my account?
Enter your email in the form that says "Start getting paid to test websites on BetaPunch." This will create a tester account for you and automatically sign you in to your control panel. Be sure to use the same email address when you test a website so the user tests you complete will all be linked to your account. There is NO PASSWORD associated with your tester account so don't try to sign in via the header of the website. No passwords are required for testers because even if somebody knew your email address all they could do is see what websites you tested.
Do I need to download or install anything in order to start testing websites?
No. Our BetaPunch screen recorder is completely web based. We give you a unique link to click that launches a screen recorder that is specific to the website you are asked to test. The only requirement to get the recorder to launch is have Java enabled in your browser. If you are using a Mac and are having trouble getting the screen recorder to load, you can watch this video for a solution. In some cases, you might have to click the recorder link a couple times before it fully launches. The screen recorder works best on Windows computers.
Do I need to be approved as a tester and how long does it take?
Yes. We require all new testers to complete and upload a sample review for a website we specify as a part of the tester initiation process. We do this to ensure that you are capable of providing quality feedback for websites that pay for our services. We don't want to send them lousy testers. After you complete and upload your sample test it will be reviewed within 24 hours and we will let you know if it has been accepted or denied. If we accept you then you will immediately gain access to view all available tests.
Does BetaPunch pay their testers? And is there a minimum in order to cash out?
Yes! You are paid based off of the quality of your feedback. The owners of the websites you review rate the quality of your feedback on a scale of 1-5 points. Each point you earn is worth $1.00 dollar. So if you receive a 5 point rating that will earn you $5.00 credited to your tester control panel. All payments are made to testers via pay pal and you must have a minimum of $15.00 accumulated before you can request a cash out.
How do I view websites that are available for testing and see details about my tester account?
By navigating to the "For Testers" page, you can sign in via the email address you test with to view your ratings, earnings, and request a cash out. Upon signing in as a tester you will also be able to see all websites that are currently available for testing in a newsfeed type format.
What does "Recorder Disabled" mean?
If a website says "Recorder Disabled" it means they have disabled their recorder so they can make updates to their website. They will enable it again when they are ready to receive more feedback so check back regularly.
After I request a cash out, how long will it take to get paid?
Once you request a cash out we automatically send an email to you confirming that we have received your request. We ask that you respond to that email letting us know what your pay pal email address is as it could be different from the email you test websites with. We will issue payment to you within 24 hours of you confirming your pay pal email address.
What typically constitutes as quality feedback? How can I get a good feedback rating?
We would like you to be as honest as possible about your feelings towards a given website you test. Please use their website as if you were a regular user who stumbled across their site on your own. Figure out what makes sense to you and what doesn't. And be sure to VOICE your opinions as you navigate the site. Feel free to offer suggestions as to how you think they could improve or make things more clear. Try to make your tests at least 10 minutes but keep in mind you can record up to 15 minutes.
