What is Respondent.io?
Respondent.io allows companies and researchers to conduct usability tests and UX research for websites and apps through a targeted universe of verified panelists. By conducting UX research with verified professionals and consumers, Respondents’ clients can get a deeper understanding of how their target group interacts with different user interfaces.

How do I sign up?
If you would like to join Respondent.io as a paid user tester, keep in mind that you’ll be asked to verify your employment via your work email. As soon as you are verified and have filled out your profiling information, Respondent’s intelligent platform will start to match you with research studies that you qualify for. Once your matching is confirmed, you’ll be able to pick a time that fits your schedule when it comes to conducting the user test.
Participating in tasks and usability tests
You’ll be invited to take a range of different tasks and tests, often based on evaluating a user interface linked to websites or software applications. The tests you’ll be invited to can be either unmoderated or moderated. The best-paid studies are typically moderated user tests where you’ll be interviewed and guided by a real person (aka the “moderator”) in a one-to-one session to capture and document how you perceive the user experience.
What can I expect to get paid?
Afterwards, you get paid through PayPal, so it’s really important that the profile information you submit when you sign up on Respondent.io (name and address) is matching with your PayPal information to avoid any red flags and potential delays in getting paid later in the process. Your payment will depend on the type of studies and target audience required. Respondent.io lists examples of average hourly payments on their website ranging from $150 for enterprise software users to $700 for executives (estimated average payment per hour).
