You indicate how you would like to get paid. Once you have earned $20.00 you can choose to have this paid-out automatically. Or decide yourself when you want to be paid, if you prefer to accrue more compensation first. If you have earned less than $20.00 in your account and want to be paid, we will charge a $0.50 transaction fee. Log-in on the SmartSpotter website and under the heading Payment you can indicate your payment preferences.

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.
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.

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.Werner
Frequently asked questions
Most assignments will be done anonymously. Shop owners do not know you are a Spotter in their shop. It is not illegal to take photos, nevertheless this sometimes raises questions with shop employees. You are the face of SmartSpotter, therefore it is important you leave a good impression. Calmly explain that you carry out assignments on our behalf and that they can contact SmartSpotter. If the shop owner requests you to leave the shop, do so without objection and remain courteous. You will still submit your assignment, but you will not be paid. Explain why you were unable to complete the assignment under the heading Remarks at the bottom of the page. Tip: Do not be conspicuous when taking photos. This can lead shop owners to ban you from the shop.
It depends on your rank. Have you just started Spotting? Then you are a Junior Spotter and you can reserve two assignments simultaneously max. You have an hour to carry out the assignments and you can follow the training assignment. Once you have earned more than 100 SmartPoints you rise to the rank of Spotter. You then have the option to accept three assignments simultaneously and get two hours to complete the assignments. As a Senior Spotter you can accept four assignments simultaneously and have two hours to complete them. The highest rank that you can achieve is SmartSpotter or PRO Spotter. You can then accept five+ assignments simultaneously that stay open for three hours. In some cases, everyone has the same time limit for the assignment. The time limit is indicated at the start of the assignment. If you accept multiple assignments simultaneously be sure to carry out the assignments in the right shop. It sometimes happens that assignments are carried out in the wrong shop. Unfortunately we must reject these assignments.
