You linked client and MSC.
That said, I agree with you and reading between the lines, you have to wonder if this also means that a popular shop that was on Shopmetrics did not have their contract renewed as their FY starts 10/1.
I got an e-mail that the luxury car service shopping program ended — this was the one that was a Legacy Maritz program but that they set up a dedicated Shopmetrics site for (before the Ipsos merge) — I’m wondering if it’s also gone from Secret Shopper/SoS as sometimes they would have a very similar shop (but different survey) show up there but with a different reimbursement — it seemed like it would rotate between Maritz and Secret Shopper... hopefully not gone forever, as my husband has that brand and we haven’t had to pay for oil changes and have had great service discounts for years smiling smiley
I just completed one assignment and will look for more starting next week. I do not predict the end of it. Rather, I try to train myself to remember my login credentials. I use this infrequently... grinning smiley

one of the big gas station clients is moving to ipsos sassie platform in january... ugh. i think the OP was right, maritz legacy is being phased out. will we be able to make bundle offers over there?
But here is fantastic news: I had completed some audits and until recently was unable to complete plain old mystery shops. Today, I completed a gas station shop. This is wonderful news (for me).

Sure hope they allow self assign on Sassie.

It will allow for self-assign if your rating is high enough.
I wonder if this is the end of the grandma brigade calling? I didn’t really think about it til now but it’s been a while since they’ve called trying to sell me on gas stations I just don’t want to do.

They all got laid off months ago.
Speaking of gas stations, I did my first ones on Saturday - 13 hours for 4 shops and I have 18 years of mystery shopping experience. sad smiley I'm cancelling the rest that are scheduled to me. But because they were my first, I accepted the price offered, though I did see I could have 'bid' more. I might be willing to do them in the future for mor money - it was just ridiculous for $12.50 each! Do they actually accept higher bids or is that something to try at the end of a month?
I do a few at base rate monthly that are automatically assigned. They are nearby and in good condition. Any others I wait for a bonus or submit an offer. End of month is best to get offers accepted. However, it is taking me longer to do the shops this month. They keep adding things to check with little $ incentive. Not happy about that.

Well there was this little thing called a GLOBAL PANDEMIC that hit in early 2020.

13 hours? Are you counting drive time, editing photos and submitting report in that time? Or 13 hours for straight audit performing?
I liked the Maritz platform best, since I can request bundles and I have the option to use my digital camera instead of an app on location. I don't want to be assigned four of ten shops I request on a route and have to cancel.
Luvs, that was for everything, though the four shops were fairly close together. But I decided to bite the bullet and get these down so I'm faster now. Still, it's at least two hours for shop and report.
