Some assignments require a specific type of shopper and you may qualify for these extra assignments if your profile information meets the criteria.

Special Note: DO NOT provide your credit card number or Social Insurance Number (SIN) to any “Mystery Shopping” company. As an Independent Contractor you are not required to provide your SIN, and no legitimate Mystery Shopping Company will ask for your credit card number. SIGNING UP TO BE A MYSTERY SHOPPER DOES NOT COST ANYTHING. You may choose to become certified through the Mystery Shopping Providers Association (MSPA), which does carry a fee. However, you do not have to be certified to become a mystery shopper or request assignments. For some companies it may increase your chances of getting some shops, but certification is optional.
