FAQ

Do I have to have a smartphone?

Absolutely Not. Using a smartphone gives you tremendous advantages like completing assignments from the field – without having any homework to do later, but it is by no means necessary. On the iSecretShop system you can use a smartphone app, the mobile web, a computer at home – or ANY combination of the three! It’s all about making it easier (and more convenient) for you!

What is iSecretShop’s Payment Policy?

iSecretShop is a software platform and a job board. We do not pay shoppers. Our clients (the ones offering the opportunities) do. Every company has its own Payment Policy. Some jobs pay within days, others on a monthly schedule. All Payment Policies are published for you to review prior to agreeing to do any work.

How do I qualify as a Mystery Shopper? Do I have to apply?

As an adult consumer, your opinions and observations are extremely important. Registering is fast and free – and you’ll be able to start taking assignments right away! There is no application process, and you ‘qualify’ because your opinion matters.
