We have currently made some changes and updates to our Sassie system. With this update, shopper scores will no longer be provided for shops completed.
We will instead provide editorial narratives to give shoppers feedback for areas to improve, or areas of success.
Do you, or someone you know, speak Chinese as a first language?
Our retail clients sometimes request foreign language shops. Make sure you update any language skills you may have in your Extended Shopper Profile.
Shopper payments are distributed 30-60 days after you perform your shop. We pay via Pay Pal, or by check depending on the preference selected in your Profile. Pay Pal is usually a much quicker and efficient way to receive payments.

!! SCAM ALERT !!
Scammers are impersonating mystery shopping companies! If you receive an email from an unknown source asking you to reply with personal information, ITS A SCAM. If you receive a package or envelope containing money orders or checks with a request to cash, this is a scam. Scammers have been utilizing Craig's List & mailings in this way to scam unsuspecting shoppers into cashing bad checks, then depositing the money into another account. If you receive anything like this, even if it has the name of a valid mystery shopping company on it, notify the company and your local authorities.
