Do you like to shop? Are you a good actress? Are you a keen observer? If you can answer “yes” to these questions, a job as a mystery shopper just might be your cup of tea.

Mystery shopping is a good job for someone who doesn’t want to work in an office or a factory. It is a good job for someone who wants to work when and where they want to, without having to punch a time clock. It’s great for moms wanting to make a little money while staying home to care for the children.

Companies use mystery shoppers when they want first-hand experience with how the public perceives their business. Are employees helpful and pleasant to customers or does the employee treat a customer rudely. Is the store pleasant to shop in? Are restrooms clean? Was your restaurant order prepared proper? Companies, ranging from fast-food restaurants to motorcycle dealers want to know!

Mystery shopper jobs vary widely. One time you may be asked to get information about opening a new account with a bank. The next time you could be visiting a supermarket to see if the deli clerk offers you samples. Some mystery shopper jobs can even be done over the telephone. You may be given a scenario to follow; this is where your acting skills come in.

Mystery shoppers must be keen observers with good memories to recreate the shopping experience when it comes time to file their report. Since you most likely won’t be able to take notes at the time, you need to remember details such as name or employee description if he wasn’t wearing a name tag or how knowledgeable she is about the products on sale.

A person taking mystery shopper jobs needs some basic equipment at home: a computer with high-speed internet connection to receive assignments and file reports, a digital camera and a scanner. Shoppers need to prove they’ve visited a business; a business card or picture of the business is usually enough. The assignment will state what is wanted.

The report of the shopping experience may be a simple check-off form or it could involve writing a multi-page report. It depends on the company and the complexity of the assignment.

Payment varies with the mystery shopping jobs. You may or may not be reimbursed for products you are required to buy; if it’s a telephone assignment, you may not be reimbursed for long distance charges. Sometimes the payment is not commensurate with the work involved, like receiving $10 for a shop that required you to spend 20 minutes at the store and then write a three-page report. Other companies, however, may pay you an hourly rate which includes preparation, shopping, report writing and driving time as well as mileage.

Mystery shopper jobs are as near as your favorite computer search engine. A good place to start is with the Mystery Shopping Providers Association. You should not pay for lists of companies hiring shoppers, though you may want to pay for tests which certify you to shop in certain fields, as certified shoppers get higher-paying assignments.
