"You will be reimbursed up to $1 for a small purchase of your choice PLUS you will receive a $12 shopper pay for successful completion of this shop! PLUS $5 BONUS to make total pay $17!"
This is from a scheduler email. Probably not thinking of the expense, but then don't include it in this line.
I equate the pay to the fee for the shop. So the total pay or fee is $17. Plus there is a reimbursement of up to $1. I don't find the email misleading.
