Carefree test user recruiting

You define your target audience. We organise, schedule, and pay your study participants.


Order test users online

Use our online ordering tool to specify the test user profile and the type of study. In addition to standard criteria (age, gender, language, place of residence, device skills, etc.), we can recruit test users with as many special criteria as you wish, e.g. ‘must own a car’. Ordering takes less than 5 minutes.

Specify required profile


Screening process

We create and send out a questionnaire to find test users who meet your criteria. If you prefer, you can also create your own questionnaire for the screening.

Recruiting process

We coordinate all of your appointments with the participants and make sure that everyone arrives at the right time, at the right place (remote, at your location or at the test user’s home). Additionally, you can check on the recruiting process in real time whenever you like.

We handle all incentives. There are no extra charges for your company. After having successfully completed a study, TestingTime will credit the amount to each test user’s Wallet within 5-10 business days. In case of a payout request by the test user, a payout will be made within 5-10 business days to the test user’s bank or PayPal account, as far as the identity check was successful.

Supported study types

Online-Bestellung Testpersonen

User tests

Users are given specific scenarios. They must complete tasks to do with the product or service you are testing in order for you to detect usability issues.


Interviews are personal, one-on-one conversations with customers or users. They help you understand your target audience’s needs, motivations, and challenges with regards to your product or service.

Focus group

Focus groups

(Potential) Users in your target audience discuss new concepts and develop suggestions and ideas to help you improve your product or service.

Online surveys

Online surveys serve as a means of collecting quantitative, statistically significant data to validate existing hypotheses (e.g. derived from interviews). We support most established survey tools such as SurveyMonkey, Survalyzer, OptimalSort, etc.


During a workshop, you’ll develop a design or concept with your participants that reflects their ideal user experience. This helps the designer create a product or service based on real user needs.

Diary study

Diary studies

Participants document aspects of their daily lives that are relevant to your product or service. Documentation can mean writing and/or taking pictures (see Zalando example).
