“Apply within – no prior experience necessary.” If this sounds good to you, then downloading the EasyShift app might be a nice way to earn extra cash. They claim to pay you to “shop, eat, and explore in your city.” Sound fun? Learn more about how it all works in our EasyShift app review below!
What Exactly is EasyShift?
Founded in 2012 in San Francisco, EasyShift offers workers or “Shifters” a chance to earn easy money working “Shifts” using their iPhone or Android devices for doing short tasks which can be done at the mall, grocery store or coffee shop.
EasyShift has been written up in The Wall Street Journal, Mashable, USA Today, and Forbes to name a few. So this is definitely a reputable company considering that they got attention from so many major media outlets.
Who Can Sign Up For EasyShift?
Currently, EasyShift is open to people in the US and the UK. You don't need any experience to get started. As long as you have an Android or iPhone, you can do the work.
How Does EasyShift Work?
Anything from doing a sports drink check to looking up a product promotion at Kroger’s. On average tasks are approximately $2.00 to $20.00 each and can be done relatively quickly, but should be done within 24 to 48 hours once you select them. The GPS Tracking device built inside EasyShift shows you exactly where Shifts are located near you.
How Does EasyShift Help Businesses?
Like many mystery shopping companies, EasyShift helps business owners get an inside view of what's going on inside their stores when they can't be around.
For example, do you think the head honchos at Walmart or Target may be interested to know how their workers are setting up displays, if things look the way they are supposed to? Yes, they are. And since they can't be there every day, they're willing to pay EasyShift and companies like it to send out regular people like you and me to snap photos of things they want to look at.
How Does EasyShift Pay and When is Payday?
Payment hits your PayPal about 48 hours upon successful completion of a task. So, you will need a PayPal account if you don’t have one already in order to get paid by EasyShift.
What Do Others Think of EasyShift?
The EasyShift app has a mix of good and bad reviews on both the Apple and Google Play stores. The users that complain are often talking about not getting paid for “shifts” they completed and not understanding why. Some also say the app is clunky, needs an update, and doesn't work properly.
That said, I did see plenty of good reviews as well. Some people like the number of “shifts” available and enjoy the fast, 48-hour pay window.
