How much money can you make with this work?
Consider this a part time job where you can only earn extra income. The amount of money paid per hour is average. However, it is hard to find enough usability testing jobs to make a living off it. You will be lucky to get one job in 3-4 days.
Several online companies are offering these jobs and each has its own way of doing usability testing. Some companies will give you their software to install. As you test a given Website, this software will record your activity and will send data to the main server where a comprehensive report is created with the help of data sent from different usability-testers. This report is then sent to the client whose site you have tested. Some software will also have a voice-recording feature. Testers have to commentate on website-design, ease-of-use, quality etc.
In some jobs, several users test a website, all at the same time. It is like a big live online conference. The client will chat with all testers to gather their feedback.
