Test Person user

Looking for gaining extra money, I found in internet some job applications as a test user.
Does anybody knows how this thing works? And if it is reliable?
Websites like:
Promise to pay 50 to 60 chf per test, as I am a mother of 2 and a part-time worker, this looks like a good possibility to earn some extra money, can anyone guide me and give me some tips? Or if it's possible to became a test user even if I have a low German like level A2?
Thank you all in advance

Re: Test Person user

I've done a few user tests with them over the last 2 years, usually on skype for 15 mins or so testing new software or websites. I get offers from them every week, most of the time I'm too busy, but when I do have time to help I rarely get chosen (each test is looking for a particular type of person in a particular career)

I've only done the tests in English and they have always paid on time. Just don't count on getting chosen for enough tests to make much cash.

Re: Test Person user

just done a couple of tests with them - no issues. It helps offset some of my golf expenses but don't expect to make a living out of it. Google pay in gift cards last one I got was 125chf they pop up requests on facebook every now and again.

Re: Test Person user

I signed up to one called Test Birds when I was still living in Scotland. I think it's German. I wouldn't recommend them, how it seemed to work was the first person to complete the test got paid and for everyone else it was a waste of time. You initially had to do a test to see if you were suitable, if you didn't complete it in the allotted time you failed. I failed but I kept getting emails asking me to participate in different tests with a deadline for a reply. There was a warning that if you replied you couldn't back out. I didn't like their practices tbh.

You also had to give them your banking details, other testing services use PayPal. Anyway, they only paid 10 Euros.
