    Seems like a fun deal. I have been a mystery shopper in the past, but this site is asking for my SSN. I’m not entirely comfortable with divulging this info. What has been your personal experience? I don’t think you would advertise for a company that steals identities; I’d just like to be 100% sure you trust this site. Thanks.

    • Amber

      They are completely legitimate! They have an “A” rating w/ the BBB and that’s as good as it gets!

      • Jamie

        Thanks! I went through the forms, and it’s like applying for a “real” job, which I thought was pretty funny. Hope it’s as cool as it sounds. 🙂

  • Billie

    where did you see the A rating at? I went to the BBBonline and while it shows they are accredited there is no rating for them.

  • Marketforce is a legit company, all mystery shopping companies ask for either your SS# or employer EIN #, for those that do this professionally. If you make more than $600 a year with that company they are required by law to send you a 1099.

    I have been a mystery shopper for over seven years. With that said, I don’t really care for market force. Not because of the company, they have amazing schedulers and customer service. But I value my time, and market force is one of the lower paying ones, even if you hold out onto later for accepting the job.

    Yes, there is free food, the only time I will take these offers are to supplement my income. Say I know I have a few mystery shopping/merchandising gig in the area. I might take the job and get a free lunch, and only rarely, because I don’t eat fast food often

    • Stephanie

      Jim, what companies do you like better?

      • Jaimie C

        yes please do share….I am still a little uneasy about giving my SSN# …any additional information to ease a couple of qualms we are all feeling?

        • Jennifer

          Jaimie C (and others who are asking), the reason that you are required to give your SSN is because you are actually becoming an independent contractor with Market Force. This information is required (just as with any other job) for tax purposes. If you are not comfortable giving the information through the website, you can also call and give the information 800.669.6526. Please feel free to reach out with any questions to

        • JIM

          Jamie if that is the case, I would suggest starting a business up, a sole proprietor, which doesn’t cost a thing. Then apply for an EIN number. HTH

      • JIM

        That is really hard to answer, for just like any business it is all about networking. There are certain companies, that give me first dibs on shops before they are even posted, so I prefer many of them. At the same time, a fellow shopper might not have good shops with that same company.

        Not only that, but certain companies might have tons of work in your area, while that same company might not have anything near me.

        Right now, in order to be home with my family, I was voluntarily laid off from a great paying job. In order to supplement everything, I took a newspaper route (perfect for couponers btw), and I easily put 100+ miles on my vehicle everyday between that, merchandising, and mystery shopping. So I take a lot of vehicle repair shops.

        If you are really interested in doing this, I would be happy to help, just send me an email.

    I agree with Jim. Market Force is a legit company. They are a little bit on the low paying side, although I have done last-minute shops for them making in excess of $50. If you want to get started with mystery shopping, I think the best place to get started is through MSPA (Mystery Shopping Providers Association). You can start with their job board to see what companies are in you’re area. I’ve been mystery shopping for about two years and I’m signed up with about 15 companies. All companies ask for your SS number, which is typical for a company that is employing a person.

  • The work is really fun, I have been working as a part time mystery shopper for 3 years. It is really a very good marketing technique and the company could get exact results by doing mystery shop.
