Use your smartphone to earn money. Take on the role of a mystery shopper and get paid for carrying out fun and easy assignments.

How does it work?

Download the app

Download the free SmartSpotter app in the App Store (iOS) or on Google Play (Android). 

No experience is needed to get started! Earning extra money has never been so fun and easy!

Become a Spotter

Request a SmartSpotter account and start Spotting as soon as you are accepted! We currently work with a small waiting list because Australia already has thousands of Spotters. 

You can register by entering your e-mail address and postcode in the form on the top of this page. As soon as a position opens in your area, you will be invited to start Spotting!

Choose your assignment

Throughout the country, new assignments appear in the app on a daily basis. Look for fun assignments in your area and carry them out in return for a nice reward! 

For example, take photos of a certain window display, enter the prices of products in store or evaluate promotions on the shop floor. 

This way you can earn money and SmartPoints with no further obligations.

Submit the assignment

After you have carried out the assignment, SmartSpotter will check if all your photos and answers are correct. 

If you completed the assignment correctly, it will be approved and the amount you earned will be added to your account.

Get paid!

Your reward will vary depending on the assignment. You can choose to be paid automatically every time your account is over $20 or simply request payment when you feel like it. We pay on a weekly basis.

What Spotters say about us...

I used to work in a store myself but this is much more fun and rewarding. My smartphone camera is all I need!

Stefan

There are always plenty of paid assignments in my area. The rewards are good and Spots are approved quickly.

Marion

I enjoy paying attention to the quality of promotional activities in stores. With SmartSpotter I can earn some extra money without any obligations.

Yannick

I wanted to make some extra money but I want to decide when and where I do so myself. I already made enough to pay for a summer holiday.

Frequently asked questions

HOW DO I GET PAID?

We pay every Thursday. Once you have completed your first paid spot, you can request your payment with a single click. Please note that if you choose to be paid at an amount below $20, this will result in a $0.50 transaction fee.

Alternatively, you can choose to be paid automatically every week without incurring any fees. This happens as soon as your balance reaches $20 or more. No need to think about payment anymore!

Note: Please allow two business days for transactions to be completed

WHAT IF A SHOP EMPLOYEE ASKS QUESTIONS?

In most cases, you should easily complete spots discreetly, but it can happen that store staff will be curious and ask questions. Don’t stress! Calmly explain that you are a SmartSpotter and they can contact us at info-au@smartspotter.com.au if they have any questions or concerns. If the shop owner does request you to leave or to stop taking photos, do as they ask without objection, be polite and let us know what happened in the remarks of the assignment.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE AN ASSIGNMENT?

How long you get to complete a spot depends on your rank. For example, Junior Spotters can reserve a maximum of two assignments simultaneously and get one hour to carry out the assignments. A SmartSpotter can accept five assignments simultaneously that stay open for three hours.

No matter what your rank, always make sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew and can successfully complete all spots without mistakes before time is up.
