There are more than a thousand ways to make money online of which capterra is one of them. It is surprising to know that most people do not know this while the rest of us continue to earn money by just giving review.
The first time I heard about capterra was on a WhatsApp group. So I decided to give it a try yet with some doubts.
You will understand my reluctance, more than enough paid schemes out there that are not what they appear to be. I did not get disappointed though as I got what I was looking for.
What is Capterra?
Select about 50 social platforms users and chance is that about 10% of them have never heard about capterra.
You are asking what is my assumption based on? I have always been an enthusiast when we talk about the internet and it came as a surprise when I heard it for very first time.
On the surface, Capterra is an online site that helps individuals and companies to make decisions on which software or apps are best for their businesses.
The company does this by allowing verified users to share their experience and concerns on the software they have used. It is an open field for everyone to give insight on how well or poorly a software is. This initiative in return helps potential customers to decide whether to go for a particular software or not. No software is all perfect anyway but if the pros outweighs the cons, you are one way helping businesses succeed.
Capterra makes use of infographics, rating and simplified reviews to help you make informed decisions. You don’t want to end up buying or using poor software. Such a waste of time and resources can be avoided by taking a few peeps on reviews.
Within, you can earn some money by sharing all you know about the software. You probably have visited the site but you have no idea how it works. It is my duty to guide you into it as I plan to do on this post.

How I made $185 on Capterra
A friend said, “there is no limit to how much you can make on Capterra. I have no claim to it though as I can only speak for myself.”
When I was introduced to capterra, it was something I did not take seriously. I gave out 2 reviews on softwares I have used and 1 was approved. I earned $5 on that.
Thr truth is I did not even realise that I have a cash gift waiting for me until I received invitation from Capterra to review another with a promise to pay $10 per approved review.
I quickly checked my spam messages. Behold, $5 was all there waiting to be redeemed.
I eventually gave out 10 reviews without being sentimental about the business softwares. Days later, I received a message to claim my $100 gift card.
At the time of writing this post, I was invited again to give another reviews. What a quick way to make some cash especially when it is this easy.
Below the main message, there is an important information stating it is maximum of 10 reviews per person every month.
This will definitely go a long way in taking care of some expenses if the reviews get published. For a review to get published, it must meet their guidelines.
Another invitation got to me, it is to review another 10 products at $10 each. Unfortunately, $80 was sent, the reason could be that I had already reviewed two before this new invitation.
You too can start making money by reviewing products you have used.
Payment methods on Capterra
There are about 4 ways to to be paid on this platform. The payment methods available are Apple Itunes Card, Starbucks Card, Amazon Gift Card and Visa Gift Card.
People living or outside USA are advised to choose visa gift card when redeeming their gift card.
When you choose visa card, you can have the physical plastic card shipped to you or request for a virtual visa card. Both have the capacity to be used on the phone, on the internet and mail-in payment. For the plastic card to be shipped, you will be charged $3 as the processing fee.
The advantages physical card has over the virtual card is that it will be easy to be presented to store owners, retailers and restaurants compared to trying to have them to input your virtual visa card details on their payment slots.
Others might accept it but the chance is very slim as it may not speak well for their business.

Tips to get your reviews approved
- Be real about the software. Try to give what you like most about the software. Be more broad on explanations.
- You should be able to give both sides of the coin. The pros and cons will help potential buyers with their decision. If a product’s benefits outweigh its issues, make it appealing to the buyers if possible.
- Dont give a review based on what you heard from friends. Give reviews because you have used it or at least helped to set it up. That way you will be more broad with your reviews.
- Ensure your review is relevant to software buyers and also avoid unnecesary use of big grammars. Write reviews that almost everyone can understand.
- Don’t include info about yourself or information that can be traced back to other people.
- Your main priority should only be on the software to be reviewed. It will also do good to avoid hateful or harrassing reviews about the product. Dont take it personal.
