Compensation None?

Some of these shops have "none" listed as compensation. Am I missing something? None isn't a number I like to hear when pay is being discussed. Is the comp listed somewhere else for assignments like this? I hate to sound like a noon just making sure I don't request shops I won't finish... Like ones that don't pay. Thanks!

When it has that listed, there is no compensation. Usually the pay is higher so it's included so it's up to you on how much you actually make from the shop. For me, I've done a few fine dining assignments with a flat rate. I know going into them that if I use it as say a "date night" for my husband and I, the odds are I'm not going to make much in the end, but I've had an amazing night out with my husband. We've taken my in-laws with us for them as well. Next weekend I have one and we are taking one of our sons out for his 23rd birthday to one of the places. I actually enjoy these even though I really don't make anything. I'm trying new places that I wouldn't otherwise go to and we are having, usually, a much needed night out since we have 6 kids.

I have seen some shops only reimburse 50% of your expenses and no pay. I guess good for a business travelerl but awful for a mystery shopper. I always wonder who picks up these shops.

I've picked up airline flights for 50% compensation - I was thrilled.


I was meeting family across the country once and had 50% of my flight compensated, saving me roughly $500.

I've gone out-of-state on shopping routes and, by having my flight compensated, I seriously cut down my expenses and significantly increased my profits.

Well I have picked up some if I am on the way to other shops as it helps your rating, but from this board I am not sure that helps you get jobs. Now 50% off airtravel? Never seen that unicorn

50% off air travel is not a unicorn. You just have to know where to look. Those shops are with companies that do not use iSS.

Where would one find those?
