I have had some questions regarding mystery shopping so I wanted to run this post that I did a few month ago again. This is the first of a three part series. I will post the other two for the next two mornings. Enjoy and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me or leave a comment.
This past week my husband and I have been busy doing Mystery Shopping. As of yesterday we have earned $154 in mystery shopping and merchandising in the past 7 days.
Today I will be heading to do a mystery shop at a shoe retailer and on Thursday Gregg and I get to eat at the Galt House (very smanzy restaurant in Louisville) for FREE !
So, since Gregg and I have been doing this we have had many people ask, how they can get involved and start making a little extra cash through Mystery Shopping. There is no way in one post I can share with you the ins and outs of Mystery Shopping but I am going to start sharing a little each day with you.
To start you will need to get organized and ready to start communicating with the Mystery Shop companies. Here is what you need to do:
- Set up a seperate email address just for your mystery shops. This will make it easier for you to look through quickly at the companies that have shops available.
- Set up a paypal account. Go here to set it up. If you already have a paypal account set up, you will need to use the email address that is attached to that paypal account as your mystery shopping account also. Your email account with the companies need to match your paypal account email. Some companies still pay with checks but most are going to paying with paypal.
- Set up a binder or an excel file to keep up with your company contacts, shops that you have scheduled and completed. This is very important because you will need to keep track of your payments. I am working on a binder for this and it will be available in the near future to be downloaded or snail mailed to anyone that is interested.
If you are interested in the Mystery Shopper Binder, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know and I will alert you when this is ready.
Tomorrow I will share companies that I feel are legit and easy to work with along with tips on how to approach the companies for work.
See you back here tomorrow!
