Becoming a Market Force mystery shopper gives you access to some of the best mystery shops out there. Their customers change all the time, so I won’t go into specifics but needless to say, being a mystery shopper with Market Force will give you access to –

Sending reports to Market Force

Reporting back your findings to Market Force is by way of their website, with easy to follow and complete forms. The website works on all devices and the forms are super-easy to complete. Most of the questions have a simple check-box answer (mainly yes or no) and then a space under to write any comments, if necessary.

Their reports often have a question where you must put in an overall summary of your visit, but even these usually only require 500 characters.

Market Force payment schedules

One of the main reasons you might want to be a mystery shopper with Market Force is the pay, of course. They pay twice a month in arrears for the work you have carried out, usually on the 15th and the last day of the month, depending on weekends.


So, if you work for them between the 1st and the 15th of the month then you will receive that money at the end of the same month. If you work between the 16th and the end of the month, then you only have to wait until the 15th of the next month for your payment.

Summary –  is Market Force right for me?

I recommend Market Force, particularly for those mystery shoppers that are just starting out. They offer support, a quality website and the payments are pretty good.
