uTest – How to receive more projects and make good money?

In this post, I am going to share few secrets [ Not Really ] which would help you to receive more projects and make good extra money.

Joining uTest

– Visit

– Register there and update your uTest profile accordingly to get invitations for projects which depends on your profile

Checking your e-mails

– Always keep checking your e-mail once daily so that you do not miss out any projects

– Checking e-mails on daily basis is important because some releases require you to confirm participation as there will be few slots

–  Also, do check your bulk/spam/junk folder – This may vary from one e-mail to another e-mail service

Joining uTest Forums

– To keep yourself updated with uTest happening I recommend you to register at

– Get involved in various discussions & create your own discussions

– Help different testers or newbie testers

– Use Chat Canvas to seek help quickly as our uTesters are always awake looking to help someone

[ This community participation will help uTest crew to identify you and invite you to Private projects ]

Bug Battle

This is good start for newbie testers to show their credibility and Project Managers are looking for those credible testers in Bug Battle who demonstrate their quality work. So Bug Battle is coming soon [ It’s Quarterly Bug Battle ]. Get your weapons ready friends.

Quality, Not Quantity

You will be getting more invitations as you concentrate on the quality of your bug and NOT quantity of the bugs you log.

Rating System

You log 10 bugs and 8 gets approved which means more projects for you likely.

You log 10 bugs and 2 gets approved which means project invitations are rare for you.

However, when your rating goes down you may try to bring it up but be careful and do a good job.


When you are invited for a release and you confirm your participation see that you are committed to the time. If you do not commit then Project Managers might be skeptical about your commitment and might happen so that they might not invite you for more projects.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post and found some cool information.

  3. Hi,

    Thanks for posting to my blog.
    I remembered I was into this uTest maybe two years ago, created an account but didn’t spent too much time on it.
    Can you tell me how about the money that can be made, I don’t expect something special but is it possible to be decent like? And the time necessary to spent on it?
    Is it also maybe more fun to do than thinking about income and its worth doing witouth any money?

    Thanks for your comment.

    I suggest you to register on and go through different topics to learn more about how uTest works. Also you might want to look at Tester Help of uTest at *smiles*.

    Yes, you can earn a decent money but more than that you can gain cool experience with different kind of products *smiles*. You are paid for every bug that is approved by customer or Project Manager *smiles*.

    If you need more details then please do post it at uTest forums or you can post a comment here so that I can assist you. Also you can contact me on Skype at santhosh.s.tuppad *smiles*.
