Get Paid To Shop

Getting paid to shop can be a very fun experience and is so easy you wouldn't believe it. It's a dream job for many! It can be great to go shopping at popular stores and dining in nice restaurants...and getting paid for it all! You will most likely find secret shopping as something you love to do. Do you have a keen eye, attention to detail, and the ability to be impartial and reliable? mystery shopping may just be the right job for you!

Now, let's discuss more of what mystery shopping is and how you too can soon become one.

A mystery shopper is like an undercover agent. You might accept assignments for restaurants, grocery stores, automobile dealers, retail stores, or amusement parks. Just about any type of business you can think of could benefit from the services of a mystery shopper. You receive a specific assignment for your shop. For example, you may be asked to describe the parking facilities, cleanliness, friendliness of staff, and your wait time at a restaurant.

Whenever you are on an assignment you must never be detected. The staff should not suspect that you evaluating them or they would treat you differently. You are not suppose to spy on employees,
or try to find things wrong or right but simply follow the script that comes with your assignment and provide a fair and impartial evaluation.

You are the one who will be keeping the corporate headquarters informed and they need you to maintain yourself in a professional and appropriate manner. For a business to be successful, they must maintain customer satisfaction. They can better please the customer if they understand how the customer is being treated and if their product is being sold as they intended.

You will have the benefit of working around your schedule, which can be beneficial for a housewife, mother or part time worker. Some places may want you to go to their establishment only during certain hours, i.e. happy hour, early bird specials, moonlight madness sales, etc. You may be able to request certain hours of the day that are best for you, such as early mornings for momís with small children in preschool or late afternoons-early evenings for those who already hold down a part time job.
