Walmart Mystery Shoppers Needed

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:

  1. 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).
  2. 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.
  3. 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. There are more on the list so if you want to see if there is one near you, click here to learn more about this shop.

    I would like to start mystery shopping for walmart.

  3. Beth says:

    This seems like an unusually high fee for a Walmart shop. Does anyone have any experience with this one or know how difficult the shop and report are? I’ve been burned on some seemingly “easy” shops that had horrible reports, so now I’m wary of new companies.

    • Priscilla says:

      I do the Observa app. They pay within hours of your reporting. They pay you by PayPal

    • LUANN FORD says:

      Yes I have done these shops for this company. The jobs are easy and the pay was never disputed.

  10. Sheryl says:

    Field Agent is an app that has lots of Walmart jobs. Pay is by PayPal usually same day.

    • Sheryl says:

      Which app are you speaking of? Field Agent starts the jobs at $4-$6 and the longer they sit, the fee goes up but never to $400. I’ve been paid $30 before but shoppers in my area are scarce. I’ve done jobs for FA for 3 years now and never have had a problem. I love these quick paying jobs. So easy and they really come in handy.

  11. Linda Nicola says:

    I saw an add from that company advertising the Walmart shops at $400.00 just to make some observations and to interact with two employees. As far as I am concerned, any company willing to pay $400.00 for a minor shop can not be true. I sure wish that kind of pay was true!!

  12. Toby G says:

    Some of us are not tech savvy and don’t have the way to download the app for Walmart. Is there another way to get those jobs?
