Why can only local shoppers perform shops?
At Baird Group, we ask that shoppers live within a 90 mile radius of the facilities we are shopping. This is so that we are able to reflect the local market of our clients' organizations. Throughout the year, we have projects that are located all around the United States. When you're registered in our system, you will be notified via email when new shops are available in your area.
How much do shops pay?
• Phone shops: $8 each
• Walkthrough shops: $50+ each
• Patient Visit shops: $150+ each
When will I get paid for shops that I do?
Shoppers are paid on the 5th of each month for shops completed* during the previous month. For example, if you perform a shop on November 15, you will be paid on December 5 for that shop.
*A completed shop has been reviewed twice by our quality assurance team. Please note that shops performed on the last two days of the month are subject to payment on the following pay period.
