If you haven't already visited the site www.mysteryshoppersmanual.com, we recommend that you do. Whether you are a new shopper or a veteran shopper, this site has a wealth of information on the mystery shopping industry. It is essentially written by a mystery shopper, for mystery shoppers. Cathy Stucker shares her knowledge and experience in a format that is easy to understand, and she answers many of the most common questions mystery shoppers have. While you have the option of purchasing her book, 'The Mystery Shopper's Manual', you can also sign up for her free mystery shopper course and find almost endless articles on everything from how to properly fill out reports to avoiding scams to why checklists are set up the way they are to record keeping as an independent contractor to finding reputable mystery shopping companies to work for. Be sure to check it out! Note: Spot Check Services is not affiliated with Cathy Stucker, her book, or her website and profits in no way from her business activities. We simply endorse her as being a valuable source of information. While not everything she says is consistent with how Spot Check Services does things and you still need to be aware of our policies, procedures, and individual shop instructions, you will find the majority of the information provided will be helpful when working with us and will apply to mystery shopping in general.
IMPORTANT - ALL SHOPPERS MUST READ: Effective immediately we have a new fax number for sending receipts to. If you are sending receipts by fax, please use the following number instead: 877-362-3172. The preferred method of submitting receipts is a scanned copy sent via email, but if you must use fax, please use this number instead. It may take us a bit of time to get the old number completely removed from our website and database, so please disregard any references to the old number of 866-592-5368. Thank you.
