Start Date

Everyone knows about the “Due Date”; it is the date your mystery shop needs to be completed by and entered into the system. However, in the shop information, there is another date you need to pay close attention to: the “Start Date”. This is the date you can start your mystery shop. Before applying or self-assigning any mystery shop, make sure to look at the “Start Date” as well as the “Due Date”.

The “Start Date” is very important because many mystery shops can only be completed within a certain date range. If you start your mystery shop before the “Start Date” there is a chance that it will not be accepted and you will not be paid.

If there is no “Start Date” listed, then you can complete the mystery shop anytime up to the due date within any specified time restrictions.
