"Mystery Shopping Jobs Package"

What is a mystery shopper? What do they do?
A mystery shopper (also called a 'secret shopper') is someone who is hired by the owners or management of a store, restaurant, or other business to pose as a regular customer for the purpose of learning what the average customer experience is for that establishment. The mystery shopper is given a 'scenario' or specific assignment, reports on exactly what happened when he or she visted the store, and is then paid for doing the mystery shopping assignment. In this way, owners and management of companies can learn exactly what the average customer experiences when they visit the store, and that way they can improve their customer service and increase profits overall.

Why would anyone pay me to shop at their store?
- Store owners and management need to know how to improve their businesses and better serve their customers. In order to stay competitive and improve their business model (and therefore their profits) this information is a necessity, and the only way of obtaining an unbiased view of what their customers experience when shopping at their stores is to employ mystery shoppers. The information provided by mystery shoppers is extremely valuable to these businesses, and as a result they are more than willing to pay mystery shoppers for their services - very well. In fact mystery shopping is a 1.5 Billion dollar industry and has been around for decades.

Why should I become a mystery shopper / secret shopper?
- Work as a Mystery/secret shopper is well suited to anyone who would benefit from highly flexible hours, relatively high contract wages, diversity of assignments and easy, fun work! The added bonus is the advantage of free products and services on certain assignments.

How much does a mystery shopper get paid?
- Mystery shoppers are paid as independent contractors at a specific hourly wage. Each assignment has a total time allowance. Efficient shoppers therefore benefit from a very high hourly wage, in excess of $10 to $50+ per hour. Less efficient shoppers will make less. When you take into account the free products and services that are available on many assignments, the total payable each hour can rise substantially. Examples of free products and services that some companies offer include:

  • Gasoline
  • Fast food meals
  • Sit down dining restaurant meals
  • Clothing
  • Entertainment and attractions
  • And many, many, more...

How do I get paid? How long does it take to get paid and get reimbursed for any shopping I do during the mystery shopping assignment?

If a theater needs someone to go and watch a specific movie, then of course it will take at least as long as it takes to go to the specific theater, buy the tickets, watch the show, and leave. Most mystery shopping assignments only take an hour or so, but it does vary depending on the assignment.
