It is great if you passed ISTQB, CSTE or IIST software testing certification but, in fact, you need just to have a laptop or a smartphone to start.
3. To get paid to test a website, web-app, an Android or an iOS mobile application, you need to register to the Ubertesters program [http://ubertesters.com/become-tester/] and join the top-league of beta-testers.
