How does online mystery shopping work?

Traditional mystery shopping involves pretending to be a customer ordering food, buying items in a shop or carrying out some other activity in person. But as our habits have shifted heavily towards online shopping, companies are placing more and more emphasis on understanding the online customer experience – and measuring the service provided online.


They put great time and effort into perfecting that experience, so they need to know it’s going as expected and every customer gets the same great service. They need a mystery shopper like you to gain that vital insight.


You could be making an online enquiry, placing an order using an app or simply looking for more information about a particular product. Whatever task you’re charged with, the brand will ask you to make notes on how it goes and answer specific questions. The answers you give will tell them where they need to improve and how the online experience could be smoother for their customers.


What do I need to become an online mystery shopper?

You don’t need any qualifications or previous experience to become an online secret shopper. The only real requirements are a good understanding of English, basic digital skills and a smartphone.


However, there are traits that will make you a great virtual mystery shopper:


      Ability to follow instructions: brands aim to analyse very particular parts of the customer experience with thorough mystery shopping, so it’s vital you stick to the scenario they detail

      Reliability: you need to be accurate in your reporting and regularly check emails, just in case we need to clarify any points with you

       Writing skills: brands need to understand how your experience went

      Attention to detail: even seemingly minor details can enhance or ruin the customer experience


What are the benefits of becoming an online mystery shopper?
