SPECIAL ALERT: Please be aware that scammers are sending emails and letters with the NIM Research Corp. logo. They are also sending out large counterfeit cashier's checks or money orders. The shopper is told to cash it and wire the majority of the funds via MoneyGram or Western Union, then keep the rest as their pay for the shop. This is not legitimate. It is not the operating procedure of any reputable mystery shopping provider to send you a check prior to completing a mystery shopping assignment. If you have any questions about a check, please contact our office. To learn more about avoiding scams, visit www.mspa-na.org/avoid-scams.
OFFERING PAYPAL PAYMENT OPTION - ACTION REQUIRED!
We now offer PayPal as a payment option.
If you are interested in this form of payment, follow the simple steps on your Prophet Shopper Profile as previous data in these fields have been removed. You must opt-in again to be paid via PayPal:
• MARK "YES" IN THE "WILL YOU ACCEPT PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL" FIELD
• ENTER YOUR PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESS AND CHECK FOR ACCURACY
If you are NOT interested in this payment option, make sure that the "Will You Accept PayPal Payment" box is marked "No" and the "PayPal Email Address" box is blank. This is critical to avoid delay of payment as we will assume you want to be paid via PayPal if there is an email in the PayPal Email Address field. If the PayPal Email Address field is blank, you will continue to receive a printed check in the mail.
If you begin using our PayPal payment option and choose to stop in order to receive printed checks, you simply remove your PayPal email address from your Shopper Profile.
NEW PAYPAL MEMBERS - You need to be sure to have your PayPal account verified and active prior to putting your PayPal information on your Shopper Profile. This process can take up to 2-5 business days to complete,
NOTE: For both payment options, we will continue to process payments on the first business day of the month for shops completed and approved by the 24th of the prior month.
It is your responsibility to update your PayPal email address for payments to ensure your payment is received.
