How reasonable is Mkt ->?

Is this MSC reasonable when reviewing shop narratives? They pay only by check or direct deposit. I prefer PayPal

I have rarely had MF question anything. I have never had them question a narrative. I like direct deposit. I get my money faster that way. With PayPal, first, the money has to clear onto their system. Then, you ask for PayPal to send it to you, and that takes another 3 to 5 days.

Marketforce? The narratives are minimal and easy to complete with basic complete sentences. I wouldn't use textese or shorthand.

I also prefer direct deposit!

Also, you might want to wait for their shops to be bonused or the MAO (make an offer).

After a while they will call you if they need a shop done if you've done it before. If you do it for a low fee you will have difficulty getting more than that fee from a scheduler that calls you.

Be patient, most of the shops I do are bonused up to four times the base pay. But I only do their burger shops right now. I haven't seen their mattress shops at the clearance department store in quite a while.
I do not wanna give anyone my checking account number. I worked at the bank I know how much fraud goes on
Also, it's okay to name an MSC or an end client but you can't link them to each other because of confidentiality.

Do a mystery shop so as to get paid to open another bank account. Use that new account just to collect money from MSCs. Move the money as often as you like or get a debit card and use it to do MSing.

I am waiting on MF to budge on the late night shop fees. I MAO of $75 for some shops that sit forever on the board and have yet to have that offer accepted. One day I am sure they will...

I routinely get $40-$50 for dinner shops at the burger joint on shops that sit around forever.

To answer the question, MF is pretty straightforward to work with.

To expand a little on Myst's idea. At a different MSC there are checking account opening shops paying up to $100 in some cities, right out of the gate.

You can have your Direct Deposit made to your PayPal account. Just ask PP for the routing and account number to use. Easy.

A shopper posted on the forum recently that they did receive a paper check. Few companies still allow this option but apparently Market Force is one of them.

As mentioned, you can do direct deposit into PayPal, or you can also set up a prepaid card like Green Dot and have direct deposit there.
For those who don’t like PayPal because of the wait or the fee to transfer funds, you can get a PayPal cash plus account and receive a debit card which you can use to pay bills or in stores, get money out of Moneypass ATM’s for free and/or or get cash back at stores.
I also did a shop where I opened a checking account. I got paid $100 to do it. Before it came time to close the account, I realized that I liked it better than my regular account. So I kept it open. Now, I use it exclusively for mystery shopping, and I don't have to worry about my regular account being compromised, which I had worried about to some degree as well. Keeping the second account for mystery shopping has worked out well.
They're reasonable without a ton of effort to complete the shop. But, they haven't raised the reimbursements even though all of their clients have raised prices. I laugh when my order exceeds their range of expected costs -- I'm starting to get more sarcastic in my responses. I hold out until they offer bonuses.

This????...then withdraw or transfer. I also prefer direct deposit, so i picked up a bank shop for $80 and created a separate account to receive shop payments. I understand why some people prefer PP. My main peeve with PP is the longish time it takes to transfer to my bank (unless I pay the "we can do it faster but we won't" fee).

Slow transfers from PP to Wells Fargo happen same day, sometimes within hours. Funds in PP accounts are held by Wells Fargo. [www.paypal.com]
