Ipsos in store phone shop question?

Hi all,

I ended up applying for alot of these not expecting to get them. To my suprise I was assigned more than half of these that I requested. I think the answer is yes to this, but wanted to ask you all. I wanted to knock all these out on the same day. Are we allowed to shop multiple shops on the same day.
And besides what is already listed in the guidelines, is there anything unusual I should be on the lookout for?

dawnhu, are these the shops they just started doing? If so, be sure to read the report on each before you go. Several ask for a picture of the entire display once you are inside of the store. It's not required but, they would like to have it. I did a few just yesterday and didn't have a problem. They all have different asking requirements if they are the same shops. So, I had to write down what was required on a sheet of paper and look over them before I went in the store to remember what all was needed. They are really simple. The app is quick submitting them as well. I am not sure if there is a limited but, I think four in one day was the limited I have done.

Watch the time that you go. The stores tend to be busy at lunch and after 4 p.m. It sucks to go and wait 20 minutes, only to find out that you aren't going to be able to meet with a rep and then you only get 1/2 pay for your visit. Remember to get a business card or brochure, even if you don't meet with an associate. Also, don't forget to take your storefront photo (and of course the phone display photo). Personally, I like to do these shops when they get bonused a bit (total pay $15-$25), mostly because I am spoiled from doing phone shops for other MSCs who paid more over the years.
I bet they accepted your offers at that low pay. I'm with JASFLALMT, $18-25 is the range I'm waiting for, if it is slow I'll do a few for $15. Keeping track of what feature set or target phone for each job when doing multiple shops back to back can tax the brain.
Thanks for the responses. I would love to wait for these to get bonused, but in my area we don't have alot of mscs so when we do get shops, they literally disappear within 5 minutes of posting. I have waited in the past and then came back to the boards 10 minutes later and they have dissappered.
Arghhhhh..completed some of these recently. How do you all remember eveything they covered so well. I have a tough time paying attention to the associate, because I'm trying to remember all the things to discuss in the guidelines at the same time.

This last one the rep said..oh you called earlier. She asked for my name..all I could do is say no I didnt and give her the wrong phone number.
How many did you end up getting all together? How many did you do in one day?

Yeah, when you do a lot at once, they get confusing. Writing down the most important parts and reading over them before going into the store will help A LOT. Believe it or not, I put more work into taking the before and after pictures than anything. I have to back up in parking spots or shot the picture while still on the main road before turning into the parking lot (which I am always afraid someone will run into me) because of the way things are set up around my area.

Set each brand apart in your mind will help you.

I would rather not say how many in case the msc is lurking but its more than 3. Also I think my issue is just making it more difficult than it has to be. I only have one today and more familiar with the scenario brand so that should help.
