Each listing is by a seperate mystery shopper company, and you will need to apply to each company. There's a bit to do in the beginning. But once you're signed up, your golden. It's free to browse and apply. You can also join the association to get shopper certifications, but it's not mandatory, and not all companies even recognize the certifications.

Three things to keep in mind when applying to be a mystery shopper.

1. Never pay for information about mystery shopping.

2. Check the mystery shopping agreement. Some companies charge an "administration fee" which they deduct from the shopper's first payment.

3. Never respond to a request to transfer money using a cheque supplied to supposedly cover the transfer. The cheque will bounce and you will be out of pocket big time. The money transfer company is not part of this scam.

4. Don't expect too much. Mystery shopping is fun, but you won't get rich quickly (or even rich slowly). Fitting it in with your other regular shopping is the best way to go.
