I have not been here for a while, but I still remember where I started. So thank you everyone here who helped me at beginning.

After exploring many way of earning money online, I’m quite settled with UTest. I have done many others at the same time just not as much as uTest.
Little bit show of my earnings for a year.
Although I have half of them comes from a big project from last month, I still gets planty invitation and I have not gets time to looks at the cycles.

So no matter how long you been here, it is possible to grow!

Good luck!

That's amazing!

I must admit some of my highest earnings have come from UTEST over the past year but every now and again I lose the confidence in doing the tests but you have just given me some inspiration to return to the website.

I mostly focus on Test case. They really gets a lot of big clients this days. Also, if you willing to do any test case involving your own credit cards, bank accounts, money that always a lot of more payment.

Also if you live anywhere close to big city, the onsite test always pay good.

Good luck!

Had no idea there was that sort of money to be made on utest. Perhaps I should take another look at it.

I have registered and get occasional utest invites for the prescreeners which I do but haven’t got through to any actual tests so far.

Wow, I'm really inspired by that. I'm finding the apps a bit dire at the moment tbh. I quite like usertesting but I'm not often eligible for anything. Will give these a go.

I don’t really have count, I have two children to take care of, mostly at night.
But it depends on the test case. For now I mostly do test case not searching bugs and only focus on high-value test case.

How do you get the tests in the first place?
I never seem to get sent any invites. Is it a question of just looking at the jobs available and apply for the ones you are interested in then wait to be approved to do them?

In the beginning, I have been invited to Sandbox. I made well on that cycle, so the paid test cycle will come through. However, the same way if you apply to utest academy, it will be the same story. If you can get the good score with utest academy cycle, they will start to invite you to the paid cycle. And by the time, find bugs and complete the test case will get you to a higher rate on the platform that basic a guarantee of the invitations.

It could take 3 months to be on the track. Once you on the track, some of the clients will have the regular test case. Mostly they will just open some test case before each of their updates when you get familiar with some clients, you will save a lot of time reading the requirement because it will be almost same every time.

Another thing is, be quick at the beginning when your rating is not great, otherwise, good cycle gets full and lower rating tester has less time to join.

Hope that helps!

I have to say it comes with the time.

Takes a lot of time at the beginning to get on track and once you get on some point, things get easier.

Thanks for that. I will go through the Utest Academy then. That is the one bit I haven’t been able to figure out how to get started. I thought the Academy was just guides to look at didn’t realise it was something to go through to help get a good rating so that then the paid tests come through.

To be fair, they need a lot more trust worth testers, they gain the trust by your rating which generally reflect how well you have done on the platform. And Testers also need to gain the trust of the platform. Because when you go further, some test case could involve using your own card to pay for something and they will pay you back on test case or bounces. It even can get involve giving out your card detail to the platform for the passive test. But, remember that this kind of test case could be half hour of your time but 25-50 dollars.

Amazon just contacted me regarding my seller account... I wasn't aware I still had one as I last used it in 2004!
Can I believe I've actually just bought some proper lights for LEGO animations - a bit of a short sale on Amazon! :D
So Respondent have contacted me to take part in a face to face interview next week.
Excited & should take me over £100 goal for January....
I really should get back into Matched Betting - I'm pretty sure most of what I make goes to Odds Monkey as I don't bother cancelling the subscription - oops!
So as a newbie here I'm still trying to get my head round it all & which is the way to channel my time. I've signed up to Prolific & Resondent thanks to @Jon
I've earned a few 3.00 on Prolific so far & waiting on surveys to come back from Respondent that I've applied for, so fingers crossed.
I have a few items listed on Ebay which I hope I will put to my 1st try at MB, scares me to be honest.
