Mystery Shopper Login
Admittedly, when we were told to write a blog about the topic ‘mystery shopper login’, we were stumped. After all, how many words can you write about a login screen? The truth is that quite a lot can be said about this seemingly bland topic. Want to know more? Read what we have to say below.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MYSTERY SHOPPER LOGINS?
We looked at login screens for the main UK mystery shopping companies which appear on the first page of Google. These are:
Here are some of our main findings:
Separate logins. Mystery shopper logins tend to be separated into separate screens, depending on whether it is a client or mystery shopper who is logging into the site. What we noticed between the two was that the client login was much more corporate compared to the shopper one. The latter heavily encouraged mystery shoppers to explore other parts of the site.
Language settings. Some mystery shopper login screens we looked at appeared to be universal as they wouldn’t allow users to change their language. However, some did allow this. This throws an interesting insight into the global outreach that some mystery shopping companies have. Market Force actually has a dedicated separate login for its North American mystery shoppers. This perhaps demonstrates just how popular mystery shopping is there.
3rd party client areas. Another thing we spotted about mystery shopper logins on various mystery shopper websites, is that some client areas are totally separate from the mystery shopper website. They use a completely separate platform to manage customer information. We can only assume the reason for this is that these third party platforms are much better at dealing with complex customer information.
Registration but no login. Although we could find a registration form for Secret Shopping, there was no login button in sight. Whilst we are not suggesting in any way that this site could be a scam, we do stress the importance of being aware of many mystery shopping scams out there. Be cautious of sites that try and hook you in but allow very little control of your preferences and information.
