There are websites that claim to make extra money just by testing unreleased games. This site is called PlaytestCloud. So, if you love playing video games and are an experienced tester, consider joining this site.
But before hitting the record button, there are a few things you should know. First, you need to decide if this site is legit or just another scam that doesn’t accept payments.
So let me fix this quickly. Yes, an official site that pays to test unreleased games, but is it worth it? To answer the question, we need to consider some factors.
This PlaytestCloud review breaks down the details so you know exactly what to expect and decide whether or not to subscribe to the site. Let’s get started
What is PlaytestCloud and what does it offer?
PlaytestCloud is basically a product testing site where you pay to test unreleased games and leave reviews. It aims to provide usability testing tools for game studios. The way they provide this service is by paying testers (and maybe you) to test their customers’ game.
Now, to really understand how this site works, we need to take a closer look at the revenue opportunities it offers. This way, you can also get a clearer picture of how much you can earn from the site.
Then I made a video explaining and showing all the details of Ted so you can see exactly how to make money with PlaytestCloud. You could read all the details below the video.
Option 1 – Try the game
One way to make money on this site is to become a tester. Once you become a tester (more on becoming a tester later), you will be asked to test the game for your customers.
Here’s how it works: You’ll receive an exam invitation via email (see photo below). If you see at this website, you will see a “Sign In” button. This login button is not intended for testers. This is for their customers. So there is no test panel that you can actually access.
Option 2 – Private survey
Another way to make money with PlaytestCloud is by answering private surveys. There isn’t much information on their site about private surveys, but since they said it was a way to earn extra rewards, we decided to include them in this review.
Personally, I didn’t get a survey invite during the test, so I can’t really comment much, unlike the survey you have to answer.
As such, these surveys are similar to the paid surveys commonly found on survey sites, where you have to answer a series of follow-up questions first. Once qualified, you can take the actual survey. And after completing the survey, you will receive a reward.
How will I receive payment?
For each game test or survey you complete, you will receive a certain amount of money indicated in the email you receive. The advantage of PlaytestCloud is that you don’t have to reach the limit to withdraw your winnings. The site pays you instantly for every test/survey you pass.
Payment is made via PayPal. Also, there isn’t really a tester dashboard where you can set up payment details, so you’ll need to make sure the email you use to sign up matches your PayPal account email.
This is because payments are processed automatically. I personally like their payment method because it is a very convenient system and pays faster than other sites.
If you are interested in some sites that offer convenient payment methods, we recommend that you take a look at the best sites to pay with PayPal.
How much money can you earn?
A 15-minute playtest usually earns around $9. In my opinion, this is a very decent bet. Obviously, the more time you spend on the exam, the more you will earn.
So, answering the previous question, how much you can win depends on how many times you ask to test the game. It all depends on whether your profile matches their customers.
The best thing you can do to increase your earnings is to follow the recommendations given in the trial games. As you can see in the image above, you can actually earn bonus rewards by making sure you speak during the exam.
This is an integral part of their process, so you need to make sure you can think out loud. These are the only skills required to work on this site. Like I said, if you don’t like it, this site is not for you.
Can you help me?
Their website doesn’t say much about how you can make money with it. The information published on the website is mainly used to describe the service to potential customers. However, there is an FAQ section on the page where you can become a tester.
It covers most of the basic topics you need to know about your site. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, visit our Contact Us page to speak with a support representative. They usually respond for some hours.
You can also send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Overall, we can say that it has a decent support system for testers as it offers several ways to contact the support team.
PlaytestCloud is a legit game testing site that pays to test unreleased mobile games. While it has some great features, it also has some limitations that you need to be aware of.
The review concludes with a summary of its strengths and weaknesses to give you an idea of what the site has to offer so you can decide if this is the site for you.
