Crowdtap is a product review site where it pays you to give your opinion and test different products for companies. Many people mistake this site for a survey site. This is because the site has thousands of questions that you can answer to earn points towards gift cards and other rewards. You’ll even receive free samples delivered right to your home. All you need to do is keep these samples, test them, and tell the company what you thought of them. This is a US based company and because they ship products to your home for testing it isn’t open to anyone living outside the US.
How Does it Work?
- Before you can start receiving samples or earn points, you must create an account on the site.
- You can use your Facebook to sign up with or you can register with your email address and password.
- Once you’ve registered the company will ask you to verify who you are. They still want you to link your Facebook account with the site.
- You’ll need to immediately go to your profile page and fill in all the details. This is very important if you want to receive free products to test and give your opinion on. Make sure to add your home mailing address. The company needs this in order to ship you out the products to test.
What Will You be Doing?
- First off, you’ll be reviewing products. The company can send you different samples in the mail for you to review. You will test the product and give feedback on how you liked it. The company is looking for honest feedback. So if you didn’t like the product, you must tell them the truth.
- The site has different missions for you to complete. A basic mission is to test a product and write up a review or give feedback on the product.
- You don’t need a blog or website to work for this company. All the reviews you write are sent directly to the company.
- The missions that are available to you were determined during your sign-up process. When you signed up with the company and filled out your profile, you told them what you were interested in.
- On the site, you can participate in different Polls. A poll is one of the easiest ways to earn points on the site. In a poll you are asked a question, you’ll need to read the answer, and just check the answer that is correct for you.
- They offer questionnaires for you to fill out and complete. A questionnaire is very similar to a poll, but it is much longer. They have in-depth questions for you to answer.
- Product and sample testing is another great advantage of this site. You’ll need to apply for this position with the company. If you’re accepted the company will mail you off a box of products or samples to test. You will have time to use these products, test them, and give your feedback to the company. They are looking for honest feedback about the box of samples you were sent. – Update: “Members are chosen for sampling opportunities based on the specific requirements of the brands that provide those samples. Being chosen for a particular sampling does not guarantee a member will be chosen more frequently nor does it necessarily increase the frequency of sampling opportunities overall. We actually work toward giving as many members as possible opportunities to sample products and participate in actions so that brands get the most accurate and diverse opinions from our community of more than a million members.” – I received this explanation directly from the company. Please refer to the comments below for the details.
- The longer you’re a member on this site the more points you earn. This will advance you on the site and you’ll soon become a product tester. This is when you can test so many different products and not just small samples. This is the ideal goal of everyone who is a member here. They all want to become a product tester and have a chance to test products from large companies.
How Are You Paid?
- For each poll, you complete you are awarded points in your account. The points will go towards gift cards.
- You will earn points completing questionnaires and giving your feedback.
- If you test samples and give your feedback you will be earning points in your account.
- The points you earned are redeemable for an Amazon Gift card. You can exchange your points for a gift card as low as $5.
This is a legitimate company and you will earn points for taking polls, filling out questionnaires, and testing samples. The points you accumulate in your account can be redeemed for gift cards from Amazon. This is a great way to test new products for free and give your honest opinion about this product. Companies need feedback from consumers about the products they offer. If you live in the United States this is a great opportunity to earn gift cards and receive free samples in the mail.

Hello, Ann, and thank you for taking the time to write a very detailed review of Crowdtap. We love your enthusiasm and are glad that you took the time to provide your followers with your views of how we work. There are a few things, however, that we’d like to correct.
You mention that Crowdtap pays members to give opinions and test sample products, and in sections 7 and 8, you’ve inferred that our members are working for us with phrases such as, “You’ll need to apply for this position with the company,” and “The longer you work on this site the more points you earn.” Crowdtap does not in any way hire its members, members do not work for us and members are not paid for their time.
Crowdtap members do earn points for completing actions (what used to be called missions) which can be redeemed for gift cards to retailers such as Target, Walmart and Amazon (to name just a few). Also, members are chosen for sampling opportunities based on the specific requirements of the brands that provide those samples. Being chosen for a particular sampling does not guarantee a member will be chosen more frequently nor does it necessarily increase the frequency of sampling opportunities overall. We actually work toward giving as many members as possible opportunities to sample products and participate in actions so that brands get the most accurate and diverse opinions from our community of more than a million members.
Again, we really appreciate that you shared your opinion of Crowdtap (and if you aren’t currently a member, we invite you to join us). We simply want to be sure that those who consider joining us know how we operate and how our members are rewarded.
Thank you so much for your detailed comment and explanation about your site. I have changed around the review and added your details comment about product testing samples directly to the reviews. Also, I’d like to thank you for your invitation to join your site. Unfortunately, I don’t live in the United States and it wouldn’t be possible for me to join.
I am guilty of being one of those people who thought this was a survey site. Lol. I heard so many talks about it but still didn’t know what it truly was. I like product testing so I definitely will sign up with them. Really appreciate this detailed review!
