When doing studies always remember to:
Use a stable surface.
Keep your head still.
Make sure the room is well lit.
Frequently Asked Questions
How will I be paid?
All payments are made through PayPal. Each study pays $12 unless otherwise noted. Payments take up to 10 business days once your results are approved. Don't worry if you don't already have a PayPal account - they are very simple to set up.
What is happening with my information?
Our customers want opinions from all different types of people. We use your information to place you into different studies according to the
profiles our customers are targeting.
Your information is kept private between YouEye and our customers. We do not sell or offer your information to the public. Ever.
What is being recorded?
During a study three things are being recorded: the video from your webcam, the audio from your microphone, and the screen from your computer.
Why do my uploads take so long?
Don't forget we are recording your screen, audio, and webcam. The file this creates is nothing short of large and depending on your internet connection speed and the length of your result upload speeds can vary between 10 and 45 minutes.
Why do I see a study I have already completed?
Studies will remain visible to you until YouEye closes them. If you see a study you have completed please ignore it and do not complete a duplicate result.
Sample studies will remain open longer as they run for 30 days. If you have completed a sample study please ignore it, it will disappear, we promise!
Will I be notified about new studies?
As studies become available we will notify you via e-mail. Studies are fulfilled on a first come, first serve basis. If you wish to participate, it is important that you act as soon as possible, as studies fill up quickly. If you do not wish to participate in a study, then no action is required.
Oh boy taxes, how do those work?!
The IRS never sleeps and is out looking for everyone all the time, including our participants. Our friends over at 1099.is have all the answers covered, check them out!
Sounds great, time to get rich quick from my couch!
We wish it were that easy but not so fast! YouEye is looking for the every day persons thoughts and opinions, not a professional usability testers thoughts and opinions. We won't bombard you with opportunities but we will pass around as many opportunities as possible.
We like to keep you as busy as we can without turning you into a professional tester.
Straying from tasks
Not completing all tasks or straying from the task at hand and losing sight of what the test creator is asking of you. If you cannot complete a task, then explain why before continuing.
Stopping the recorder early
Hitting the “Complete” button before you have fully completed the study. The upload of your video begins once you hit "Complete" and cannot be undone. We may not be able to reissue the test to you as our customers are often looking for genuine first impressions.
Reciting general information rather than your thoughts and opinions. We value your TRUE opinions and would like you to express them. Although we enjoy hearing kind words - please do not give positive feedback unless you mean it. Your views are very important to our customers.
