Mystery shopping opportunities are not limited to people in North America. Companies located around the world are actively recruiting and hiring mystery shoppers of all ages.
The idea of using paid consultants to visit businesses and report back on their experiences as a way to measure how well the company is responding to their customers’ needs did originate in the United States. Over the years, though, it has spread out to other parts of the world.

Mystery shoppers are also being recruited and put to work in India, Mexico, Russia, and countries throughout Western Europe.
Anywhere that businesses are actively servicing customers is a potential market for companies that employ mystery shoppers. Since companies are very aware that they need to be able to compete in the global marketplace, they are open to using these techniques to make sure they are doing all they can for the people they are in business to serve.
Even if a person is not living near a major urban center, he or she can still become a mystery shopper. A number of businesses have an online presence and there are assignments available for people interested in becoming web mystery shoppers.
If a business does not have a website, they really should. It’s a way to provide information about their products and services that is available to the public, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Having a site that is clear and easy to navigate is an important part of the company’s brand.
A web mystery shopper will be given an assignment to visit a company’s website to provide some feedback about how well the site is designed and whether it is considered user friendly or not. Many Internet users will check out a business online before they make the decision to enter into a brick-and-mortar location. The website is a very important part of the overall marketing plan, and if it is difficult for visitors to navigate or place orders, they are simply going to go elsewhere.
Internet users have notoriously short attention spans and instead of taking the time to figure out how to get what they want, they will simply move on. Web mystery shoppers can provide an objective opinion about a company website so that changes can be made to prevent the company from losing out on potential sales.
Whether you decide to do in-person mystery shopping or specialize in web mystery shopping only, employment opportunities exist worldwide.
