Bitbucket - manually merge pull request (git)

I have a pull request from a work colleague that is from a private fork. The fork is copied from the main repo (also private). I would like to test the work locally before merging but I can't see any way to do this without paying for additional licences for each reviewer so they can access all the forks and therefore grab the branch from the fork.

If there were 1 or 2 reviewers this would be fine as each basic account allows 5 members to be given access so I could simply ask everyone with a fork to add a certain group to the allowed list, but I have around 10. Do I have to buy a 10 user licences for all reviewers?

Am I missing something here or is that simply how it is. I found this but the command line example at the bottom doesn't make much sense.

Yes, you should move the branch from the fork to the upstream repo, then users can checkout the branch from upstream and proceed with testing.
