Mystery Shopping FAQS

Mystery shopping is the practice of assessing the performance of a company via anonymous shoppers who evaluate customer service, employee product knowledge, sales ability, the speed of service, employee integrity, and facility appearance.

As a Mystery Shopper, your services are contracted on an as-needed basis. You are not an employee of Shoppers Confidential. Essentially you have your own business. As a result, no taxes are deducted from any pay you receive for completing assignments. You are required to submit any taxes owed to the government on your own behalf. You will not receive a T-4 or any other related form from Shoppers Confidential.

This depends on the assignment, and how much effort is involved in completing the shop. Typically, shoppers receive payments of $15-$20 per assignment, plus any expenses incurred are reimbursed. Other shops may ‘pay’ in reimbursements, such as free bowling, or a cruise vacation.

Not following instructions of assignments is the greatest reason for not being paid/reimbursed for a shop.

You must…
1) Complete shops within the date(s) and timeframe specified.
2) Follow through on all scenarios provided in your instructions.
3) Get the name of the employee who assisted you, or your shop will not be valid.
4) Take any measure necessary to ensure your identity as a shopper is not revealed.

All shop results must be submitted online within 12 hours of completing the shop, or you will not be paid.

Customer Service Representative called Janet. Shoppers Confidential

No. You must remain anonymous during the entire assignment. You are expected to blend in as a typical customer. Do not bring  survey questions with you while completing a shop, this will give away your identity. The only exception would be if your assignment instructions state otherwise, such as a ‘Reveal’ shop. (This is rarely the case, anonymity is our specialty.)

Sneaky Man. Mystery Shopping services from Shoppers Confidential

No! It is imperative that you remain anonymous, and not know any employees on an assignment. It is unethical to accept a shop if you know someone who works for the company. If you discover you know an employee, contact Shoppers Confidential immediately and terminate the shop.

Ape Mask. Shoppers Confidential

All assignments are due, and must be reported online within 12 hours of completing the assignment unless shop instructions state otherwise. Failure to complete your shop as instructed may result in forfeiture of payment/reimbursement.
