I mystery shopped a couple years ago and stopped for personal reasons. I started back with isecretshop last month because I really had fun doing the shopping. I enjoy being the "secret agent" and trying to get my story past the target. I have completed four assignments so far and found the instructions to be easy to understand and the reports quick and easy to complete. Good luck with your first!
Welcome aboard guys!
I really hope you like the system and the shopping opportunities available. Here's a forum page with some tips and tricks to help you make the most out of your experience:
And of course, whatever questions you may have or stories you want to share - go right ahead!
Compensation is the fixed amount that shoppers are paid for successfully completing a shop.
Reimbursement is the maximum amount up to which your expenses on a shop will be reimbursed after you have completed it.
So for example, if a shop offers a $50 compensation and up to $40 reimbursement, and you complete it and spend $32 - you would be paid $50 plus $32 to cover your expenses. If you spend over $40, you would receive $50 + $40.
Some shops only have a compensation fee, some have only reimbursement, and some have both.
I hope this helps answer your question!

Hi Amanda, I’m a new member as well and am signing up for my first assignment. I’ve always wanted to be a mystery shopper and mystery restaurant patron so I’m looking forward to these experiences. Have you completed a few shops already, and if so, how did you like them?
That's AWESOME!! that sounds like fun ;) I really enjoy secret shopping, it's like a mini adventure for me. I haven't completed any assignments threw ISS yet. I was having an issue with the app but it seems like its good to go now. The only shops I've completed were retail, online, and audits. I hope you had a great time at dinner! Let me know how it went.
Hello Amanda and the other new shoppers,
I'm new here myself, i'm in Arizona. I just finished my second shop and had my first approved. Looking forward to
spending the loot from that one. :)
It's been fun so far and I hope to be doing this for some time to come. Added to my eBay earnings this should
give me a good little income.
Have fun all and again welcome...
