Hi! I was wondering if anyone else has this issue with this MSC. Every time I make an offer it is always declined. I always make reasonable offers (a few dollars more then the shopped pay.) Then, I sometimes see the shop still available the next day with the pay for more then what I offered, and unfortunately, I am unable to complete it due to my schedule. I do between 10-15 shops for this company a month and never cancel, rarely reschedule and have had all shops accepted.
Does anyone else have this issue? Is there some sort of formula to make an offer? (I.e - percentage or dollar amount?) Or does this company just not “like” my work? I find it confusing and frustrating since I am a good, reliable shopper and they have upcoming deadlines and don’t consider reasonable offers from me.
My offers in the early part of the month are mostly declined, though sometimes they surprise me and accept. My offers towards the end of the month are almost always accepted. They get desperate at the end of the month and will pay you what you want. At least in my area. I do a lot more shops the last 2 weeks of the month than the first two. Every 3 or 4 months my offer goes up by $5 and once it is accepted I make that my new usual fee. I won't do a shop below that fee. I do less work and make more money. I know eventually the fee will not be accepted and made my usual fee, but I'll keep going up by $5 until then.
Depends on the shop, I guess. The in-restaurant burger shops are weekly so typically on Monday they get desperate. The delivery shops are monthly and they increased those to $20 on the 17th last month and I did not see them go up after that, nor did they go to "make an offer".@MrsChaney wrote:

Thanks. Are the premium fee emails for the burger chain or something else? I only get emails for them. Sounds like I'm not missing anything, anyway.@roflwofl wrote:
I get premium fee emails all the time and delete them. The premium fee emails I get usually add $2 to the regular fee. The Samantha emails, although they are not high offers, are typically higher than the "premium fee" emails. I have actually accepted a couple Samantha offers.
