Can you really be a secret shopper or mystery shopper? Will people really pay you to eat out or shop? Companies hire mystery shoppers to shop and experience a service and product. Then you (the mystery shopper) complete and turn in a written evaluation per that company’s instructions.
Mostly a mystery shopper acts undercover (the location doesn’t know they’re being shopped); but sometimes the hiring company asks you to reveal yourself at the end of the shop for various reasons such as to give an employee a reward for top customer service. Or some even ask you to use a digital camera now to take a photo of the product.
Regardless, I still receive weekly e-mails alerting me to potential mystery shopper assignments in my area from lots of companies. So once you’re on a mystery shopping agent’s list and you’ve bagged a couple of shops as a mystery shopper without making errors, you’ll keep getting asked over and over again.
I’ve bowled at two different bowling lanes as a mystery shopper. I’ve bought books at book stores paid for by the mystery shopping company. I shopped a golf range and store with my husband at the mystery shopping company’s expense. I’ve purchased petrol and drinks at convenience stores as a mystery shopper. I’ve had offers to do mystery shops at banks, bus stations, home sales/model showrooms, hotels, bars and other places. When I was actively mystery shopping, I had more offers than time.
So I decided to limit my mystery shopping experiences to meals for two (with my husband) for which I’d be reimbursed. The cost of the meal and drinks and a small fee to boot.
