I'm really anxious to shop for them, but I can never find shops available. Your experience?

I have done several shops for Intellishop, I enjoy working for them. I just wish they had more opportunities in my area! I can't remember the exact time it takes to pay, but it's not a long time. I've never had any problems with this company.

I live in Austin and have only done one shop for them. I just did it recently so I have not been paid yet.

I would like to put in a good word for Intellishop. I work for them a lot and think that the schedulers are great. They pay regularly on the same day every month through Paypal.

This company has been prompt, professional and helpful in their scheduling, editing and payment. I enjoy working with them as they are quick to advise when I have any questions and are personable through e-mail and telephone contacts.

My experience says, "Go for it!" I don't think you'll be sorry.

I enjoy working for Intellishop. There is one scheduler who I've worked with -- she was prompt in returning emails and kind in her replies. Overall, a great experience with a great company!

I believe they use the Sassie scheduler -- I would try logging in a few times a day to try and "catch" shops before the general email goes into everyone's in box. Also, you might try Silver certification, as I believe they support the MSPA certification.


Good luck!

I have completed one shop for them so far. It was about a month ago so I haven't been paid yet but have no reason to think there will be a payment problem. I got very prompt responses to e-mail contacts with the scheduler. I would definately shop for them again! As someone mentioned, they do have a job board on Sassie so I would just keep checking!

I have nothing but good things to say about Intellishop. I completed three shops for them at the end of September, and just got my payment notice from PayPal a few minutes ago! I'd shop for them again in a heartbeat - just wish they had more in my area.

I've only been shopping now for about 3 months and Intellishop was the first company I shopped for. I was very grateful for the opportunity as I did not have any experience or certification at that time. I was very pleased with the experience and was paid very quickly. I'm silver certified now and have had a a couple other jobs for them since then and so far each time as been as great as the first.

I've done a number of shops for them, and have had no problems whatsoever. They are fair, and payment is reasonable and timely. I only wish they had more shops in my area.


Happily shopping the Portland, Oregon metro area!

Although I am not happy with some of their tactics on one project, like lowering already lowered shoppers fees, usually their pay comes fairly regularly. However both August and September, they have been late sending my payment through PayPal.I use my ATM card to do my purchases because I know for a fact, they have sometimes told shoppers they have been id'ed, but will not provide any backup for that, and it becomes your word against the stores that you were there,so either save your receipts should you ask for them, or use your ATM card, and get an automatic receipt as is commonly done.

I did my first two shops less than 3 weeks ago and I got paid today. My hourly rate for the work was a bit low. So I will rarely do these, but the forms were clear. I liked the food at one location so I may request that location a couple of times a year. It is very close to home.

I love this company. I have worked with them on various occasions and am paid like clock work. Still trying to get the department shop they do in my area, but the gold shopper (I know you're out there) keeps beating me to the punch.

I have been trying to figure out their "schedule" for posting shops, since they seem to assign them so quickly. On the rare occasion that I get an e-mail, many of the locations are already assigned. I have checked at various times of day, days of the month, etc. and have not been able to see a pattern. Anyone willing to share some info on this?

I've done a few shops for them. They do pay more quickly than others. The only problem I have had with them is on the audit forms. I answer the questions and the auditor always wants more than I write. I explain everything that is there and they want more than I can provide. I guess you have to make up things that don't happen since that's what they want. How can you say someone said something if they didn't. Or the auditor wants the entire conversation word for word, not in your own words. I don't carry a tape recorder to remember every word that was said and I don't think anyone can remember an entire conversation word for word.

I have recently had problems with a new editor. I had a "10" record until this person came on the scene. Now all my shops are 8 if I'm lucky. I follow instructions to the letter and provide lots of narrative. It's not enough. Other than this, I enjoy working with this company!

I'm with you, Lisa--I can't figure out their scheduling. Get this: I received an email from them last night (I was online when it came and it said that it was sent at 7:53pm on 10/31, so I know it wasn't old). It listed a lot of states to check, but EVERY state had "n/a" as their locations to shop (i.e. no specific towns listed). I went to the Sassie site to check, and the same was true-every single shop was scheduled! I can't figure out why the email was sent to begin with! Anybody have an answer for this one?!

These job listings are for surveys regarding cell phone usage in malls. You must have a cell phone to be eligable to complete the surveys. Hope that helps some!!

I have completed shops for Intellishop and I enjoyed the ones I did.
Now I also received that email for the cell phone usage shops. I sent a reply email to the scheduler for more info on what cities these shops would take place, but the scheduler never responded.
