How to work as a Mystery Shopper

What is a Mystery Shopper

A mystery shopper, also called a 'mystery shopper', is a person with no professional knowledge of any subject such as marketing, social relations or economics who aims to assess certain skills or capabilities of a trade or business with customer service.

How to work as a mystery customer

The way the mystery customer works, in this case for example you, is by visiting the shop or commerce that the agency indicates to you acting as a normal person but trying to capture those details to evaluate that later you will have to write in a test form that also has an area to describe your experience in an objective way, without expressing your personal thoughts, if not only what you have seen and heard.

Agencies that hire mystery shoppers are at the same time hired by the owners of those companies to be examined, as they want to improve their business by monitoring the performance of their employees according to their standards.

The Mystery Shoppers are hired for a few hours, and they are in charge of extracting this information and delivering it to the agency.

The contracts that companies make to mystery customers are contracts for work and service that are signed online so that work can begin.

Mechanism for working as a mystery customer

I want to give you a brief overview of how you should work as a Mystery Shopper in a very simple step-by-step manner:

- You must first register on agency websites to get a Mystery Shoppers job in order to be considered for future jobs.

- Then when you are offered a job you must show your interest by applying to this offer and accept the terms and conditions of the contract.

- Print the form of those ideas that you must capture during your visit to the company to be evaluated.
- Reviews the issues to be evaluated to keep them in mind.

- Come to the company in a natural way, without saying that you are a mysterious client and evaluate in a discreet and natural way what the test asked you for.

- When you leave, quickly fill in the test sheet, which you can then pass to clean, so that you don't forget anything.

- Scan the test or pass it to the computer and attach it to the web to receive your payment.

Each job can take you about an hour, so you can do as many mystery customer tests as you want per day and that are offered, since you don't have a fixed schedule.

How much a mystery shopper charges

The salary of a mystery shopper is modest, but it depends a lot on what work you are going to do, i.e. which company you have to go to, the number of questions and the difficulty of the questions.

That is why a mystery customer can charge at least 8 euros net up to 30 euros for each form delivered.

In addition, the contracting company will normally pay your travel expenses and also the expenses if you have to buy a product as part of the test.

My opinion of working as a mystery client

Before I finish, I would like to give you my personal opinion about my experience as a Mystery Shopper.

In my case I did 6 jobs as a Mystery Shopper and finally quit because I'm a person who doesn't enjoy shopping and going to the shops very much. But it's a pretty simple job. If it's true, I know people who love this job and enjoy it very much so as not to lose the opportunity on any new occasion.

What you should keep in mind is that if you are not a person who likes to interact with other people, are not outgoing or do not want to develop people skills, and do not like to shop much either, this may not be the job for you.

But if, on the contrary, you are passionate about shopping, working as a mystery customer is a very good opportunity for you, because you will enjoy this job and, as you are not highly paid, you will be able to have fun, do more of these jobs and make money as a mystery customer.
