I offered to complete a Triumph motorcycle shop for an MSC for $45, which is $5 more than they have posted. Rather than to accept my amount, they are now soliciting shoppers with the below pasted requirement:

Your Shopper Rating must be at least 1

My rating with them for 53 assignments covering almost 12 years is 9. My conclusion is that a shopper who breathes is preferable to one who excels, but charges an extra 10%.

I think they just mean that there are no restrictions. A $5 bonus at the end of the month seems generous on your part. Their loss.

If I'm remembering the MSC correctly for this client, they are on the STINGY side. They rather issue meaningless "hero" citations than to pay you.
