Select companies that offer cash incentives to test products from home. Some companies will send you multiple types of products, and others will send you just one type.
Register with each company that you've chosen, and complete any requirements that the companies ask for in order to receive their products. They might ask you to fill out a survey, particularly if it is a company that tests multiple product types, in order to find out what types of products you would be interested in testing.
Test the products as you are instructed to once they arrive. Fill out any surveys and answer any e-mails or phone calls you are required to in order to receive compensation.
