Mobile apps for mystery shoppers are becoming very popular. Mobile apps are becoming as popular as ridesharing is for transportation. It is changing the way shoppers can make money. Mobile apps are convenient and fun. Mobile apps can sometimes be a pain when the platform is not easy to navigate. I will talk about some mobile apps that are great money making tools. Think of yourself as a shopper who does 4-8 shops per day. Wow! You have to go home and input all of those survey reports. That could cost a shopper an enormous amount of time. Mobile apps will also require you to use your phone for taking pictures and images of your receipts. Of course, this information will be easily downloaded to your report.
The mobile app allows you to download the app on your iPhone or Android device. Once you have successfully downloaded the app, you are ready to start working. It is almost easier than signing up with a company on their website. Incidentally, some of these shopper apps can only be used on your mobile device. The perk to having the app on your device is that you can self-assign the shop you want. You have the ability to proceed to the location. The best perk is that the survey is done while you are at the site. Presto, the shop is complete and has been submitted. Here are a few mobile apps I have found to be outstanding in the mystery shopping arena.
Field Agent app is excellent. You can sign up easily, it takes less than a minute. You will also fill out your banking information. Payment is usually available within 48 hours. You can cash out your payment when you like. This is how the app operates. You will find a lot of shops in your immediate area. You sign up for the assignment that interests you. This app lets you self- schedule the shops. You can also input whatever location you are in and find out if an assignment is available.
The app will tell you what the shop window is. The assignments usually have to be performed the same day. The assignment will give you the time frame for the shop. You complete the shop while you are in the app. There is nothing more to fill out when you return home. The shops you do on the Field Agent is for that company. You are paid directly by Field Agent.
Easy Shift app allows you to complete simple jobs. You simply download the app and fill out the information. Easy Shift calls each task a shift. You will complete those shifts in the time allotted. The assignment must be completed within the time limit. The assignments are in your home area, so you are never far away. This app pays through Pay Pal usually within 48 hours.
Presto Insta Shops app allows you to instantly assign yourself a shop. The Presto Insta Shop app is very user friendly and fun to use. The app will identify your location and list companies in your region. Presto unlike Field Agent uses the Sassie platform to list shops from various mystery shopping companies. You are paid by the company listed, not by Presto. Pay is also quick you do not wait 30 days for payment. You can select to get paid by Pay Pal or Amazon or Tango gift cards.
