Informa currently pays Mystery Shoppers via mailed paper check. This is currently the most secure way for Informa to remit payments to shoppers. Payments are typically received in 2-3 weeks but can take up to 45-60 days to be received, varying by the project.
Once you submit your mystery report, it is reviewed by our editing and quality assurance team generally within 3-5 business days. Our editors may contact you to verify information in your report so be on the lookout for emails from Informa's editors. Any delay in response may result in a delay receiving payment.
If the editing and quality assurance team finds your report meets expectations and was performed correctly, they will publish your report and approve it for payment. (NOTE: You will be contacted if the editors are unable to approve your report)
Informa payments run on a weekly basis. This means that payments are processed at the end of each week, not daily. At the end of each week, our payments team receives a report of the payments and prepares them for mailing. It usually takes 7-10 days for processing. Once processed, the checks are mailed from our payments office in Florida via ground service which takes 3-5 business days.
Informa is continuing to research electronic payments options and prioritizing data security. All shoppers will be notified if and when electronic payments are implemented.
