Update 10/6/12 – There is currently not any way to make money with the Go Spot Check app. This might change in the future however.
How does it work?
Like many smartphone apps, the GoSpotCheck app can track your location. Based on where you are geographically, it can alert you to nearby “missions” you’ll have the opportunity to complete. Do the missions and then get paid!
What might you do on the “missions”?
Different things. You might be asked to take pictures of merchandise in a store or a product display. You might also be asked to find out how much something costs. These are little jobs that, for the most part, won’t take you long at all to complete.
What is the real purpose behind these missions?
It’s kind of like mystery shopping. Businesses have a genuine need to understand what’s going on at their stores, so your feedback is extremely valuable.
Do all missions pay cash?
Some pay in cash, but some also pay in points. The points missions are often surveys you can answer that don’t require you to go anywhere. You can redeem your points for gift cards after you have enough of them.
When does GoSpotCheck pay after a mission is complete?
It can take them up to 24 hours to approve your mission. After that, your money will go to your Paypal account. And yes, you do have to have a Paypal account to do missions for GoSpotCheck because that is the only way that they pay.
What smartphones can you use this app with?
Right now it is available for the iPhone, but they do have a waiting list for the Android app.
How can you get the app?
You can download it in the iTunes App store, or you can request that GoSpotCheck send you the app directly from their website.
