How to Make Money as a Mystery Shopper


Let's cut right down to it, wouldn't it be absolutely a dream come true to GET PAID TO SHOP? Despite what you may have heard, it really is possible. Mystery shoppers actually make money by shopping! Although its not as simple as just stepping outside to whichever store you like, buying things and getting reimbursed, with a little time and effort you can earn a good reputation and start making money by shopping anywhere from The Gap to higher end stores. The reason mystery shoppers are valuable to the retail industry is because they provide indispensable information about customer service.

Mystery shoppers begin building their reputation by signing up for and accepting small, local shops. These assignments usually involve reimbursement for the money that they have spent. The hardest part of becoming a mystery shopper is knowing which websites and programs are legitimate. Because of the popularity of this fun money-making business, many scams do exist. Sites such as Shopping Job Directory can help you make sure that the assignments you are signing up for are from legitimate companies who will pay for your input.

The site will get you instant access to their company directory as well as streamline the process of applying to several companies.

Many mystery shoppers who use the site often make an additional hourly wage on top of their reimbursements. You do the footwork, you put up the cash up-front, you get reimbursed and paid, and you get to keep everything you've bought. The only "mystery" in mystery shopping is that the store and employees don't know that you are 'on the job.' This will help large chains evaluate their services and provide better customer service in the future.

Mystery shopping is a great opportunity for stay at home moms, people who are recently unemployed, and students to get the supplies they need while making a profit. The hours are usually very flexible and involve time frames anywhere from a few days to several weeks.

Mystery shoppers not only visit retail stores, but are often asked to evaluate eateries. Fast food chains and other restaurants make up a huge percentage of the companies looking for your direct feedback. You can eat out for free! They also go to grocery stores and evaluate product displays.

Becoming really successful in this field requires building a solid reputation by always remembering to be punctual with your reports, completing the assignments you sign up for, and making sure you keep ALL your receipts. Good luck and dive in!
