Most people think mystery shopping is a scam but nothing could be further from the truth. Sure, there are companies out there who will take your money to give you information on mystery shopping, but they will only provide you with information regarding these companies that is available elsewhere on the internet for free.
Once you find a legitimate mystery shopping company, they will send you on assignments where you will be sent to a specific store, and will be given a task. You may be asked to see if you are being offered help from employees at the store, you may need to purchase a product and rate your overall customer experience, or you may be asked to actually reveal yourself as a mystery shopper to a store employee or manager. You will be compensated for each assignment you complete and should also be reimbursed for any purchases you make.
