Earn up $100 to $150 for taking part in Capterra Reviews

Have you ever talked about the products you’ve used with your friends and families?

If yes, then I’d love to tell you that you’ve done a product review. You may have loved or hate it and need to share that with someone else.

Now, do you know that there are business owners who Would pay you to review their products and services you used in the past? We are going to find out now.

Make Money Online Reviewing Products on Capterra

You can make up to $150 with Capterra paid reviews for writing about your experiences with products you are using or have used.
To give you an insight of products you can review for cash, I’ve listed 10 out of the many software/product/tools you can write about below;

Now, imagine earning $10 for each review you write about the products above. If you’ve used all them, then you will mostly likely make $100 by taking part in capterra paid reviews. This review platform offers up $150 redeemable via Capterra gift cards or visa card.

What Is Capterra?

According to Wikipedia,
Capterra is a free Web service that aims to help businesses find the right software solutions.

What Wikipedia didn’t tell us is the fact that capterra is also an online review site that pays users for reviewing (up to 10) products they have used for $10 each. It’s okay to doubt this, because I did too. It was seemingly too good to be true, but reverse is the case now.

As earlier mentioned, capterra is an online review site that pays users to review products they have used. Users are expected to write about the pros (likes) and cons (dislikes) of products they choose to review.

The review site is 100% free and legit and from personal experience. Opportunities for paid reviews on capterra gets opened to users on occasions and right now, they are taking new registrations.

Discovering Capterra Paid Reviews

Capterra reviews payment proof

I was introduced to Capterra paid reviews by a friend, and I doubted its legitimacy and was sceptical about its pay per review. The review site turned out legit after I received and redeemed my first payment of $5 virtual visa card (best for people outside United States).

How The Review Site Works

All Capterra wants you to do is write about your experience with software and services you’ve used. There are tons of products on capterra to review and I bet you’ve used one if not 10.

Joining capterra is probably one of the easiest thing to do. There is no long process for registration since all you are required to do is sign in with your LinkedIn account (which I assume you should have) whenever you want to review a product.

Note: I do not know if the site accepts newly created LinkedIn accounts, but you can give it a shot and create a new LinkedIn account if you’ve never owned one.

Important Notice
You will receive $5 for your first review, then $10 each for 10 more reviews. thus, each user is limited to paid 10 reviews. If you decide to keep reviewing products, you will not be compensated. But hey, $100 is a great deal to earn for sharing your likes and delikes.

Detailed Guide On Writing Your First Product Review On Capterra

Remember I made mention of the fact that you you’ll need a LinkedIn account to register on capterra. You must always login via LinkedIn to leave reviews.

• First visit Capterra, You should see a site similar to the screenshot below.

capterra homepage

I used my smartphone to access capterra, hence the mobile view.

• Once you are on the capterra site, click on “Write Review Now” or use the search box to find a product you are using or have used in the past. Below are possible blogging and tech savvy products/software you may be using.

  • WordPress
  • Mailchimp
  • Surveymonkey
  • Ahrefs
  • Google doc
  • Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Google hangout
  • Microsoft excel
  • Google drive (drive by Google)
  • Microsoft word
  • Google sheet

• After you’ve searched for and clicked the product you would like to review, Let’s assume you want to review WordPress; simply click on the review button, once this is done, a pop up will appear requesting that you sign-in using your linkedIn ID.

All you have to do is sign into your LinkedIn account and allow capterra to access your account then you’ll be directed to the product you want to review. (capterra paid reviews site uses your LinkedIn ID to verify that you are a real human having proper knowledge of the software you review).

The review is divided into 3 pages;

  1. Product overall ratings by the user
  2. User detailed review about the product’s pros and cons.
  3. Product usage details by user

• When you submit your review, capterra will notify you via an email about their approval criteria (this happens whenever you submit a new review).

In 5 working days, your review once approved will get published. But it can take up-to or more than 19 days to receive your payment.

Earning an Extra $50

I stated earlier that you can earn up to $150 with Capterra. I’m not taking back my words. The additional $50 can be made only if you refer up-to 10 friends who write their first successful review. By successful I mean a review that gets approved and published.

You will receive your referral link after you get paid for your first review and submit a second review.

If you sign up through my capterra referral link, I will earn bits of the extra $50 if you write a review that gets approved.

Capterra payment methods

Capterra funds are redeemable only via gift cards or virtual visa card. If you are not in the US, I’d advise you to opt-in for the virtual visa card except you plan on selling your gift cards. You can’t use gift cards outside the US.

  • You can use the virtual visa card to shop online on any shop where visa cards are accepted as payment methods.
  • You can sell Giftcards for cash to vendors who are interested in purchasing them.

My Experience And Capterra Payment Proof.

Capterra Reviews payment proof

Just few days after I received my first $5, I successfully completed my 10 additional reviews.

Capterra Reviews payment proof

7 days after my additional reviews, I received $75 ($5 for referring a friend). This made me discover that only the first approval may take up to 19 days, but this could be different for you. My friend got her first payment in less than a week. I await the approval of my remaining 3 reviews. (update: I was unable to make a successful product review to earn the remaining $30, but I got more than $50 for referring friends, up to $80).

Also, I will get an extra $5 if you join using my capterra referral link and get your first review approved.

Good Luck Guys

Update On Capterra Paid Reviews

I saved a great deal after getting paid to review products on capterra. I was able to renew my web hosting plan and got a few goodies off Aliexpress. In case you are looking to shop online, I have posted an aliexpress review to help you discover if the online marketplace is great or not. If you have not participated in capterra paid reviews, I think you should now. Could help save you some shopping bucks if not anything else.

    I recently wrote a review of SimpleSite on Capterra (a software review site) and have been given a referral link to share with other SimpleSite users through the Capterra Reviewer Referral Program. The first five people who write a high-quality review on SimpleSite using my link will receive a $15 gift card from Capterra!

      Hi, Wait for the first payment before proceeding to do more reviews. If you are approved, you will be gifted the $5 and asked to give more 10 product reviews.


      August 2, 2019 at 5:27 pm

      Did you received the gift card???

    I have been rewarded for my 1st review (5$) but is there no way i can transfer the funds from the visa gift card to my bank account?

    1. Onome

      November 22, 2018 at 12:40 pm

      Hi Ayomide, you can sell it or simply shop online with it… One easy way of selling your funds is by creating and connecting the card to PayPal, then look for anyone would love to buy some funds.

    November 12, 2018 at 9:45 am

    I applied already, i already wrote my first review, i wrote two tho, but i’m nt seeing anything like a user panel where i can see the amounts earned. And please, how do i get my referral link?

    1. Onome

      November 12, 2018 at 1:18 pm

      Hi Ayomide, since you’ve written your first review, be patient, if your review gets approved, you’ll be mailed a $5 reward. Once you receive the first reward, review another product, you will receive a mail instructing you to refer friends, click to be directed to your user panel where you get to see your approved reviews number of referred friends and your referral link… Remember every individual is entitled to 10 reviews after the first… All the best…

    Do they have options of payment via PayPal or any online payment system? And how do we get a virtual visa card? please create articles on these issues because it knowledge is impotant in this case. And Thanks For Sharing, will sure use your refferal link.

    1. Onome

      November 10, 2018 at 11:39 am

      Hi Emintah… There is no cash out via PayPal or any other online payment processors. They simply give you gift cards. But you can use your virtual visa card on PayPal. Also… Capterra gives you a virtual visa card if you choose it as a means to claim your reward.

        Please trow more light on redeeming through virtual card and websites that one can use it to shop.

I really need to shop for baby things, please be fast with your reply. And I still can’t get my referral link ooo.. Please forgive my disturbances and thanks for your help.

          April 27, 2019 at 7:02 pm

          Hi Tessy, Except Capterra changed the rules, you can choose between redeeming through Amazon gift card, virtual visa card and the rest.

      Thanks for these informative post.
      Am also a benefactor of capterra-paid-reviews, at least I have redeemed my first $20 Amazon gift card just for writing 2 reviews. My problem is I don’t know how to get my capterra referral Link. Please do help me out, thanks.

      1. Onome

        April 9, 2019 at 6:53 am

        Hi Tessy, after your 2nd review they should have sent you an email with your ref link. Try looking for it in your inbox.

    I will give this a try.
    You did a very wonderful review of capterra here.
    I will sure register using your referral link.
    But by virtual Visa card you mean?
    Please shine more light lol

    1. Onome

      October 16, 2018 at 12:30 pm

      Please do. A virtual visa card is a credit card, though not accessed physically can be used to shop in sites where VISA cards are accepted.
