Mystery shoppers are field-based market researchers who visit businesses to assess their quality of service.
A mystery shopper (also called a secret shopper) is someone who gets paid to visit a store or restaurant and secretly evaluate things like customer service, store cleanliness and product quality. After the visit, the secret shopper fills out a brief questionnaire (shopper report) describing their shopping experience and gets paid for their time and opinions.
There are several mystery shopper sites in Canada that you can apply to and become a mystery shopper to earn extra cash.

Mystery shopping is a fun and exciting way to earn money while you shop! The more technical definition is: “evaluating a company’s front line service providers from the view of the average consumer.” Or in its most basic definition, a mystery shopper’s job would be to shop our client’s stores anonymously, acting as the “average consumer”, and complete a questionnaire after you left the store. You would then submit this questionnaire to our office by your deadline for review and payment.
You, as a mystery shopper, would be considered the “average consumer”, and the information you supply speaks for thousands of other consumers. Therefore the information you supply needs to be accurate, factual, detailed and well written.
