Marketforce $0 Pay Jobs

Can someone tell me what the Marketforce jobs are that show $0 pay and reimbursement of $5. I am confused, you still have to do a report and the work correctly? But they are not paying you and want it for free?

That's for those of us that like to work for free. New form of craziness that started after the pandemic. You can work all you want. Of course, it's mostly for nothing.
Search this section for a similar title. Shoppers typically wait until there is a fee to take the shop.

Ha no; never. There were even some places in the past, that offered "attaboy's" as incentives.

Yeah, I did that job today, but for $16 plus $5.

Wow, second time I've seen someone get the shop for this client at $16. As I mentioned in the dedicated thread for this client, I've never done better than $12 and I had to be visiting a rural area in another state to get that.
I jumped for joy when I got it for $15 several times. I love flakes.

I just completed a shop a good distance away (that is usually $9 fee local). Occasionally I would get it approved for $55 fee. With fuel costs rising I asked for $60 the last several times and was denied. The last time they approved the $60 fee. It takes persistence.
Cindy - I assume this shop is the one mentioned in the other discussion by the store name.

I'm curious how many pictures the $5 quick nicotine audit requires....
The automated scheduler sent out an email offering $3 over the listed fee.

Why would anyone work for free? I see $5 shops as well - quick audit! Shoppers need to read the assignment, possibly waste ink/paper to print out something, drive to the location, perform the audit, drive back, report the assignment. Add up the time and place a value on it.
I don't normally work for free but today I'm out all day and am hungry - I'd be happy to do a reimbursement only restaurant shop today but there aren't even any burger shops this week!
Honey Brown, here is what was offered: There is no fee to start with and they offered a $3 premium on top of the fee. HUH?
Cindy, this shop is for a large retailer of outmoded, unsold or close to expiring goods. I don't think I can say its name here.
I had done one of these 2 days ago.

It was on the way home from the Oncologist and the only thing I printed out was the LOA the rest was done on my tablet and my phone. get to write off the miles from the Docs and also made some money. Not much mind you. I got $15 for those and $48 for some electronic shops and free chicken for lunch. And all back home before 2 PM.

I've done a few at $15, but not often. $10 usually. At $5 right now.

Do not read so much, look about you and think of what you see there.

It's probably the cheap retail shop. I suppose if you are going to go shop there anyway, you would want to do this. Otherwise, it isn't worth it. Yes, they expect you to do the shop and the report for $0. The fee may go up if nobody takes it, but not by much.
I got one a few days ago for $10 on a Make-an-offer. Bundled it with a couple other shops in the area.
They are offering just $8 reimbursement for a famous chicken restaurant opening next week in my area of Southern California. I would never do it for that unless maybe I had another shop next door and needed lunch. I’m also surprised they are doing it so soon after their opening.

If you eat chicken (I don't), it's pretty damn good.
The reports are mindless. You can do it in the parking lot in 5 minutes.
The $8 reimbursement no longer covers the expense here anymore. You lose money if its for $0 base fee.

I'm seeing mattress shops for $4. The limited info sounds like the same one it's always been. Geesh, I wouldn't consider it for under $25 especially with Covid, but $4? Are they serious. I thought perhaps it was a phone call, but the description still says it could take an hour or more. ..Um NO..NO..NO
