Software testing companies did not just appear out of nowhere. If every developer could hire QA specialists and work just as efficiently, no one would ever outsource. What are the advantages of using a specialized company over testing in-house?
1. DEVICES AND CONFIGURATIONS
Many bugs only exist on certain devices. They cannot be reproduced on emulators. Therefore, even your best tester will not find these bugs without the right device. Do you have a large stock of devices? We do!
Staff members only test their own projects. Therefore, they see a limited number of projects and a much smaller number of bugs. Our crowd deals with a much wider variety and encounters a large number of bugs. This means they can seek out and find bugs more efficiently.
Before a product release, functionality is urgently implemented, time starts to run out, and the volume of testing grows. The cost of a mistake also increases before a release. It is dangerous to make a bad first impression. Can you triple your staff of experienced QA engineers 3 weeks before release? Not likely. But you can contact us and start testing in any volume in just 4 days.
You always can calculate the pricing for your testing on the Homepage of our website using the configurator.
QA Supermarket provides the easiest way to test your software at affordable pricing.
Any “extras” excluded from the process, that’s why we are able to provide you with high-quality service at low prices.
To get an accurate price for your project you only need to provide a link to your software and add any requirements (if you have).
Right after that, you will see the accurate price for your testing which is final.
You don’t have to pay extra for the routine work of processing and evaluating your project, which is usually done by a person, since at QA Supermarket all these steps are done automatically.
It takes just several clicks to start your testing with QA Supermarket. As soon as it is launched, you will start receiving bugs in real time. From the moment of completed payment to first bug detected – no more than 48 hours!
The number of participants varies and depends on a range of factors, such as devices selected, bug report language, test type, start time, and duration.
For instance, you will experience low participation if you run a Rapid Test in German on a narrow set of devices with a specific iOS version late at night.
That said, a typical test cycle will entail around 40 testers.
A bug is a software related problem. If something on a website or in an application does not work as it was intended to, this “error” is called a bug.
Here at QA Supermarket, we use the following categorizations:
Functional, Content, Visual, and Usability Suggestions.
- A Functional bug is related to the intended function of a piece of software. The example is:
– A button doesn’t submit the form as it was intended to the search doesn’t react to the user input the app crashes
- A content bug relates to the actual content of the website or app such as text, labels, pictures, videos, icons, links, data, etc. Typical content bugs are:
– Broken links or images (404s)
– Defective redirections in general
– Missing text, for example, in an empty tooltip
– Missing content, such as an empty content area
– Missing translations, e.g., a button on an English website having French labels
– Some products are missing in search results but the search function itself works.
- A Visual bug relates to the graphical user interfaces of websites or apps. For example:
– Layout framework problems such as misaligned texts or elements;
– A responsive design problem, for example, an element is displayed on one mobile device but not on the other;
– Text or elements unintentionally overlap each other, are cut off, or are not fully visible
– A Usability Suggestion is feedback on the existing features, functions or layout of your website or app and how user-friendliness could be improved. Such as: “Link the phone number in the header, to allow visitors to contact you more easily” or “Add a ‘removal all’ button to the cart”
Ideally, features are areas of your product incorporating a range or functionalities or user stories.

Crowdtesting (or crowdsourced testing) is a practice that harnesses crowdsourcing’s efficiency and diversity for software testing. Software such as mobile apps, SaaS, native desktop applications, or websites in various development stages gets distributed to a large group of people. The people in this group, the crowdtesters, run the software on their computers or mobile phones to inspect it for defects and areas for potential improvement. At test QA Supermaket, these crowdtesters don’t need specific scripts; teams usually ask them to evaluate sections or features of the application, using their experience and best judgment to unearth and identify problems. After being examined by a senior tester for quality, reports from the testers flow back to the software team.
Product, development, and QA teams can use the crowd for regression testing, feature testing, usability testing, user story testing, cross-browser testing, accessibility testing, performance testing, routine sanity testing, and so much more. The power of crowdtesting comes from the vast pools of testers, comprised of people with different skills, inclinations, experiences, and devices. Their broad hardware coverage, combined with their human intelligence, gives even fast-moving development teams real-world testing capabilities that wouldn’t have been possible a few years ago.
You can run an unlimited number of tests in parallel.
