No. Rather, you will be paid.

Payment varies depending on task length and complexity. We have a variety of test types which include unmoderated tests such as Survey Only, Video plus Survey and Eye Tracking Tests as well as moderated test sessions. Payment is processed once your test submission has been successfully reviewed and approved. Payment times vary, depending on the scale of the project. Large tests can take a little longer. Test remuneration information specific to each test will be provided with test materials.

If your sample test is approved, you’ll start receiving emails notifying you about new testing opportunities.
