What Happened To Goodwin?

There used to be lots of shops in my area. For the last few months, nothing. I saw some discussion last week about pay from Goodwin. But is anyone else seeing a decline in available shops? Or is it just my personal privilege to experience this?

I have been receiving job offers from Goodwin but I think they are using an outside scheduling company. One of their clients went out of business and another is using online surveys from customers' receipts instead of mystery shoppers.
In my area they are using iSecretShop. I have looked at a couple of shops and somehow the reimbursement did not seem to cover the order requirements, bars are not my thing and memories of trying to get paid in a timely fashion are still too fresh.
I will continue to check iSS (I've been checking). Would really like a particular shop in a couple of weeks. Ah, well. Thanks.
Goodwin's been paying all my shops at a turnaround time better than many other companies I work for.

Have you inquired with any of the schedulers or Goodwin contacts about the shop you're looking for?

Be sure to check all the platforms they have their shops spread across (Prophet, iSS and SASSIE).

Tarantado, what are you talking about? My Goodwin login gets me to the Prophet site only. Or are you referring to schedulers using other platforms? As I said, I've been checking iSS.
I remember them using at least two different platforms maybe about two years ago, maybe longer.

No; Goodwin Hospitality spreads their mystery shopping projects across multiple platforms. While Goodwin Hospitality does utilize a third-party scheduling company, this scheduling company does not have their own job board (SASSIE) like KSS does for their clients (the MSC's they schedule for). Goodwin Hospitality uses other platforms such as iSecretShop and SASSIE, in addition to the Prophet site you're referring to. Note that the SASSIE platform only has one client on there, as far as I can tell.

I just read today that Goodwin is going solely with ISS for their shops, effective this summer, though they did not list a final transition date. They are still accepting shoppers on their own site, though.
I did a shop today from the iSS platform that initially said it was with Customer Prophet. However, the emails with the shop overview came from a Goodwin email address. Have they merged?

On iSS, there are a few Goodwin shops listed for my area. On Sassie, I only ever see one.
I believe Goodwin and Customer Prophet have merged. As far as pay, I have only done one or two shops for them but so far have been paid exactly on the date promised.

I received an email today from Goodwin Hospitality today. I'm not sure if this is helpful.

get in touch with isecret shop.com/agent. There is a list of shops all over the country.
I have shopped very few shops with them, not much in my area.

Yep. I think their transition is just about complete and the shops are all on ISS now.

Maybe in your area. In mine, there are multiple projects still on the Prophet and SASSIE platforms for Goodwin.

I still also see Goodwin shops in 3 different platforms in my area as well. It is rather annoying to have to log in to 3 different platforms to see all their jobs. It was rather confusing I thought it was a different company when I saw some jobs pop up on isecretshop just recently but then I checked the phone numbers were the same! I think other companies are going the same route, I see Jancyn on ISS too, but no jobs in my area on ISS only on prophet.
Yes, they are on all 3 platforms, but you have to create a profile with each platform. They don't overlap.

Happily shopping the Pacific Northwest. Shopping since 2013 and editing since 2018 smiling smiley
they are using iSecretShop for majority of their shops. They sent e-mail about that switch a while ago. Just a few shops still on existing Goodwin site.

Shopping Eastern Pennsylvania and parts of NJ, since 2009
Hmm. I never got that iSS switcheroo email. Ah, well. Finally found the Sassie site. Did not know about that, either. I keep visiting all three platforms, and.....I got nuthin'. Maybe it'll pick up this fall. Thanks, all!
I got paid today for a shop completed 7/1, just FYI.
