Why is your feedback important? 


CX Group has curated a panel of outstanding mystery shoppers, auditors, evaluators, and brand ambassadors who provide essential feedback to our clients across multiple industries, including retail, restaurants, hotels, casinos, automotive, financial services, home delivery –– and more!  

Our panelists provide feedback on mystery shopping assignments, their own actual experiences as customers, results of compliance audits, plus they take part in post-evaluation focus groups and video interviews. We are so much more than mystery shopping assignments –– we are everything Customer Experience! 

Our panelists are part of our community, and as such, we offer intriguing assignments where our members also learn new things and become engaged in new activities. We also pride ourselves on taking very good care of our members. They are the backbone of all that we do.  We pay above average for the work taken on, and we always pay on time. We have an outstanding team of shopper support staff who are in-house and not managed by a third party. We guarantee that you will have an intimate and supportive relationship with CX Group. 

We are also the only agency in our industry to have developed a growing Shopper Advocacy Panel with whom we work closely to make sure that we are always in front of member services and that we provide the very best experience possible for all members. You may also join this panel and take part in our focus groups if you wish. We welcome all active members!

Frequently asked questions


What are the benefits of becoming a mystery shopper with CX Group?

We have exciting assignments and clients that may allow you to experience new services and products. We also treat our shoppers well and pay quickly and on time. We are very careful to offer fair fees for a fair piece of work too. You can manage your own schedule and accept as many or as few shops as you wish at a given time 

What does a good report look like?

A good report will always include answers to all required questions and verbatim/text comments that are detailed and unique to that assignment. Plus, answers should never be too subjective. When saving images to upload later and with your report (such as photos or receipts), it’s always a good idea to name your image with the shop code of your given assignment; that way, you will be sure to upload the correct image with the correct shop! 


Focus your comments on what the associate did and said and what the location looks like, rather than on what you did and said. Don’t use words like “very” or “nice”. Try to be more specific and detailed in your commentary. 

Why is being a mystery shopper an important role?

Mystery shoppers contribute significantly to big companies’ decisions on how to best serve real customers! They take your reports and feedback seriously with the end objective of making shopping and hospitality experiences better for us all!  

Do I get paid for all mystery shops that I take on?

For the most part, you will receive both a shopper payment and also reimbursement for the products or services you have to purchase to do your shop. In a few exceptional cases, our clients will provide high reimbursement rates with shopper pay, such as fine dining restaurants.  


Our shopper members enjoy these assignments as they get to experience some luxuries that they may otherwise not! Either way, the compensation for your time with CX Group is always fair.  

When will I get paid for completing a shop?

Payments are made between the 15th and 20th of each month for successfully completed shops, with required documentation submitted, from the previous calendar month. For example, accepted February shops will be paid by March 20th. Changing your payment method between the dates of the 15th and 20th could delay your payment to the following month. 

Do I have to answer all clarification requests after my shop assignment?

Yes, we must have a response to any clarification email within 12 hours of it being sent. Failure to respond may result in shop rejection and non-payment. This is simply because we will not be able to use your report for our client.

When you sign up, please visit the Shopper Hub frequently and search for available shops. New shops are posted daily.
