Apparently the iShopSafe shops on Presto are back for a second round!

Has anyone had any problems with being verified?? I have done about 5 of the shops and have not been paid. They are saying that my SSN cannot be verified by the IRS. I'm not sure what this means. I really want my money!

Has anyone had one of their shops approved yet?

Mine from Tuesday are still awaiting review. It's probably just slower processing this round.

I've also noticed a lot of pins for locations that I know ARE open that are still available on the map.

Same (not available, but surprisingly haven't yet been completed).

All the shops I completed on Monday and Tuesday have been approved now. I completed one more today which is now "awaiting review". It does seem like they are taking longer this time.

None of my shops have paid out yet, but from what I remember, I think they only pay 2 days a week (maybe Monday and Thursday?), and if your "approval" missed the cut-off time, then you have to wait until the next cycle/day to receive payment.
The one I did this past Tuesday was approved on Friday (yesterday). I did one Friday, so hopefully that one will be approved by Tuesday. There was a note to expect payment in my PayPal account within 3-4 business days, so that will be fine with me.
These are easy to do, and they pay quickly. I did a few already and there are a few more that are continuously gray. It appears that someone is holding them for the last week, and claiming them again as soon as they expire.
I’ve now been paid for some shops from early last week. I think there was a limit on how many shops were assigned for some businesses, as some chains were completely booked across a wide radius and others were almost completely available.
I've been paid for the shops I completed last Monday and Tuesday. The shop I did on Friday was approved today, so I'm guessing that one will be paid on the next pay date (I think it will be Thursday).

Most of the shops in my area are gone...seems like banks are the only ones left, and most have been reserved. I do wonder though...there were 2 fast food locations near me that I know for a fact are drive thru only (no interior access at this time). I saw them being reserved on Presto maps, and then they disappeared like they had been completed. I thought they might show back up again because there is no way they could have been properly completed, but they haven't reappeared.
I think that someone is exploiting shoppers as a means to update their database. For example, I found three former locations. Two might be shopped in this program as re-brands. One is entirely different and should be taken out of the data base altogether. This new business is shopped under a separate program.

I have called and confirmed that all three are accessible. I will not accept any of the Presto assignments for them.

Some new stores, including an extremely common convenience store, were added tonight. I signed up for two locations and at that point all locations for this store brand showed up as "reserved," so perhaps there's some kind of limit per store brand.
Thanks, I think! I went and snagged one but now I have to get up and get dressed to go out again.

Darn! Wish I'd seen this sooner. They are all reserved in my area. Hopefully some will become available again soon, but I'm guessing most will be completed.
Yes, they are here also but the store that is listed moved out of the area over 25 years ago. But the gas stations at the largest grocery chain in the US always say that the shops have all been done and they have enough of them. Even the ones that are being offered for $25. Guess I am not part of that goodolboy network.
