Hi all, I have done this in the past, and it is great way to increase your income. Do not worry I will not be sharing any links for referrals. I am only going to share the company names that actually pay you to mystery shop, and you can google it. It is defiantly not easy money or free lunch, it involves a lot of preparation and proper work. Once you get used to the assignments, you do not have to spend much preparing. There are different companies with all sort of assignments. It involves visiting the client in question with particular scenario, they are very particular in the scenario, miss something out and they might refuse to pay you. I have done bank assignments to give a feedback as new customer trying to change an account or buying a products. Lunch visits and pub visits, you start with going alone then they offer you the chance to bring someone but you have to stick to guidelines, if they say do not take anyone then DO NOT, there are incidents of people getting sacked for it. The fee varies some pay decent amount and some just a fiver if that with the free meal you get, it might sound a good deal but when you start filling the questionnaire with reparative questions it will drive you mad. Now to the companies I have used, they are mostly UK based but some international. You can sign up to as many companies as you like. The more you sign up with the more choice of jobs you will have. The companies do not deduct tax so you have to register self employed. 1. Bare international 2. GAP BUSTER 3. GFK 4. Grass roots 5. Retail eyes If anyone need further information please let me know. The best way to do mystery shopping if you have about easy 3 assignments in a day, I normally do two bank jobs for example then a free lunch or dinner. You decide the day you want to make a visit but once you chose a day you have to stick to it otherwise you might not be offered more jobs. If you are very reliable you get more jobs, and even bigger fee.
