Good Morning!


I am a secret shopper out of Greenville,North Carolina. I have done assignments in the past with this company but stopped. I have recently started back and plan to be here for a while. This is actually my first time posting in the forum. I am looking forward to meeting new people in my area or sending suggestions on how to complete assignments better.

Hi there! I’m more new to this than you are. I literally just signed up and requested two different secret shopping assignments. I read the info below the assignments and one of them said I’m supposed to ask a certain store for a certain document that would automatically let the store know what I was doing there. Is that normal? Also, I entered the e-mail address linked to my PayPal account when I signed up, but I’m not certain how to make sure my PayPal account is appropriately linked to the ‘isecretahop’ app. Any advice you may have would be greatly appreciated. This is the first time I’ve ever done this and I don’t want to mess anything up

Hi, I am very new to secret shopping. I have never done it before. I live in Raleigh, NC and I signed up but not sure what to do. I thought I would get a tutorial or something. Do I just pick an assignment and do it? Do I wait to be assigned? Not sure where to begin.

I am right there with you. I just signed up for a shop. But, i cant find instructions. How do I submit the questionnaire? How do I submit a w8 or w9? Can i do the shop and then submit? I did not see a phone number from Spinx. I wouldn't call a local number, I'm sure

Hello to all and welcome to both the forum and iSS, the fun place to both shop and learn. Maybe I can answer some of your concerns and questions.


The process is very simple. You can choose any shop using the mobile phone app or online directly. I use both to pick assignments, but usually use the phone app to complete the reports. It's very much easier and faster than the computer counterpart.,


After you pick your shop, you will then complete. READ everything in the instructions carefully BEFORE you do the shop. That way, there won't be any delays in getting approved and a lower chance of it being declined.


Also, if you have not, be sure to peruse the contract you signed for each MSP, that will tell you the payment policy. Most MSPs use PayPal, so you have to set up an account. Your paypal account is not set up or linked to the mobile phone app in any way. The information is relayed to each MSP when you sign their contract, so that they can pay you for your shops. Be sure the paypal information is correct, even one letter or number off and you won't be paid.


The instructions for your shop are located with the shop itself. When you get a shop assigned to you, an email will be sent containing the basic shop information and will contain additional links containing more detailed instructions and the shop questionnaire itself. The same details are also posted on the iSS website under Assigned Shops. You will find this selection in the left hand column of the main page once you login to iSS on a computer. On the mobile app, it is listed under Assigned Shops in the second column and row of the main screen on the app just below the Set Assign Limit heading.


There are video tutorials on the iSS website. The link is at the very bottom of the home page on the computer, or is listed as iSS videos on the mobile app at the bottom of that page. They are basic overview videos to help you get started with iSS or as a refresher course.


Finally, as a last great suggestion, circulate around this forum and check out other comments/posts/thread. You will much helpful information, and other posts share the same information that I am. AND, with any shop, if you have a question, concern, or etc. contact the MSP the shop is connected with immediately before doing anything on the shop. Their contact information is listed in the email previous outlined that is sent up shop acceptance, and is also in the list of MSPs you have, another link also available on the left column of the main iSS page on computer or MSPs on the mobile app.


I hope that is beginning tidbit is helpful to all. Happy shopping.
