We live in a fast-paced and technology-driven world and the mystery shopping industry is certainly no different. I am discovering more and more mystery shopping smartphone applications that are simple to navigate, offer easy and quick assignments, and pays shoppers that same day. These new companies are “raising the bar” for industry’s standards and are becoming a highly sought-after alternative to traditional mystery shopping.
Today, I will be highlighting a fresh company that many of us may want to add to our mystery shopping portfolio. This might be a relaxing way to offset your usual assignments and just have some fun while your shopping, browsing, or even while you are on a vacation. The Mystery Shop Forum has an interesting job posting for those wanting to conduct a speedy 10-minute assignment at your local Walmart and get paid between $4 – $12 to boot.
The company that I am showcasing today is called, “Observa,” and it is a mystery shopping app that can be downloaded from both the Apple Store and Google Play. In a nutshell, this is how it works:
- Download the app and create an account and make sure that you use the same email address that belongs to your PayPal account (you will be paid via PayPal).
- Observa recognizes your geographical location and you’ll check the opportunities available near you section. If you see a job that interests you simply click “Accept” underneath the description.
- Upon selecting the assignment, shoppers will have two hours to complete it. Once it is finished and validated, you will be paid within that same hour.
Currently, there are tons of these Walmart mystery shopping opportunities all over the country. Some of the states involved are Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina, Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, Texas, Kansas, Alabama, New England, Arizona, and Colorado.
