Mystery Shopping & Secret Shopper Help


When do Companies Pay for a Mystery Shop?

While some companies pay remarkably fast for your shops, most will pay you for your shops anywhere from 15 to 60 days after the date of the shop. Some will reimburse expenses immediately so you are not out any money for doing the shop.

Some companies chronically pay 60 days after the shop, so many decide not to shop these companies - however, some of these companies pay the most money per shop. So after the first two months, you will be on a regular schedule and won't notice the 60 day gap as much.

If more than 60 days has passed without a payment, followup with the company to check on the status. There could have been a problem or something needs to be completed before payment can be made.
