People willing to earn some extra money using their spare time often grab mystery shopping opportunities without even seeing whether the company they are registering with actually exists physically. They often fall victims to the frauds wanting to grab a piece of pie in the melee. So it is better to wait for the good and genuine companies than grabbing anything that comes in the way. It is not that the companies not always exist but also those existing actually may not follow the right ways in doing their business. This is difficult to apprehend but there are many forums which can alert you of these companies.
The worst thing to do is to fall victim to gullibility and greed. The fraudulent companies will always promise you the moon whereas the reality is that you might gather some nickels at the most. The mystery shopping opportunities never pay you astronomical figures and the shopping for the purpose of the survey is also restricted to a certain amount depending on the shop you are going to. Any payments that you make above this amount are from your own pocket. The money the companies pay you as fees for the assignment is such that you need to do more than one assignment per week to get enough to call it an income. The income is not even enough to rely on it for the daily and regular expenditure of the family. But there are exceptional characters that do really make big money, but they are the rarest of the rare.
While waiting for mystery shopping opportunities look for those companies that have affiliations to the national associations. Generally the associations look after preserving fair practices in the trade of customer survey through special shopping. They have their own guidelines that they have formulated from the experience of the various companies who are members of the association. These codes of conduct makes the process of special shopping responsible and the people who engage the agencies as well as the people who take part as shoppers feel confident about the whole thing.
Never ever pay for registering as a special shopper. The companies who claim that they will provide mystery shopping opportunities that can make you rich often also asks for money on the pretext of providing you training for the job and keeping your shopper information in storage for job opportunities. But remember that it is the shopping agencies that need you as a tool for their job and people buy or procure tools for a fee. So do not ever give them money. The genuine agencies will call you back for their own business than you calling them back. Do not get attracted by these trainings because the so called trained ones will earn whatever the untrained ones will.
Paying for mystery shopping opportunities is highly illogical because the companies who are actually into special shopping business earn their bread from the clients who appoint them for surveying their establishments. They can hardly sustain on the money you pay as registration fees, training fees, and various other names they assign to the money they extract. So these companies never ever ask for it. Thus it is a clear indication that the companies asking for money are either frauds or their business are in a sorry state and you will not be able to land enough assignments with them.
