A day in a mystery shopper’s person.

Mystery shopper

You received an email offering you a contract to go out and go to a pharmacy to report some topics in that store.

When accepting the contract you will get by email the instructions to conduct your mission properly.

This can take anywhere from a few minutes to maybe an hour to read everything requested and when it has to be performed.

It could be in the morning, in the afternoon at night, a weekday or during the weekend.

When you are aware of all the requested things to be performed you drive to your store location, don’t forget that you can’t take with you the survey questions.

You have to be able to memorize everything you have to do in that store.

I used to write the questions on a small piece of paper and read it if I had a memory failure and to make sure I didn’t forget anything.

When all that was done I went back home to complete the report through an internet connection and report everything fresh in my memory.

Then I had to wait to receive the approval of my report and learn that I would be paid within a week and all my expenses covered if they were approved ahead of time and with receipts to prove the expense.

Two things you must remember, they must be made happy with your report to be paid, otherwise, you will have to go back to the store to complete the requested data.

Also, if you are recognized in a store as the mystery shopper they will not pay you.

With all that said you better figure out before accepting the contract all the possibilities of the amount of time, you will have to spend and decide if it is in your interest to perform that mission.

Make sure the payment they are offering you cover all your expenses, sometimes they are offering a fixed amount and many times it might not cover your expenses.

Once you accepted a contract it is harder to go back and ask for more. Be sure to make a fair profit or otherwise decline their offer.

Is it a Scam?

Is the offer is too good to be true it is probably a scam. If they are offering an abnormal amount of money to perform a job and If they are asking you for any kind of money it is a scam.

Never send any money to anybody asking for it in exchange for work. You can invest your money for better things.

  1. Thank you so much. I have found your article both informative as well as very interesting. I myself am a mystery shopper and this is something I have quite a bit of experience with. It was great for me to look at your recommendations as there are some companies you mentioned that I have not heard of before and I am in the process of looking into all of your recommendations to expand my horizon in this area. Once again, thank you very much for a very informative article.

  2. Hey There,

    Mystery shopping is smething that I have never done. It sounds alluring, though! I know many companies do it in order to test products and receive feedback so it’s pretty useful.
    I would love to be paid to do this.

    1. Hi Asen I don’t know where you are from but most of the companies listed are international and are probably in your country, why don’t you try one?

  3. I have never heard of mystery shoppers till now. It seems adventurous to be one. I have one question though, are all the websites you listed offers mystery shopping jobs globally or in specific countries?

    1. Hi Demi. Thank you for your comments. If it is mentioned international they are in most countries and they all are in the USA.

  4. Never knew there was so much to know about mystery shopping. Definitely did not know there were so many companies that did that. Very informative site.
    Thanks for writing it.
