How can I get paid?
There are actually a couple of ways you can make money with Helion. The first way is mystery shopping, obviously. You can also make money referring friends as mystery shoppers. When they complete their first shop, you get paid. You can get payment to your Pay pal account on the 20th of the month after the month you did the shop. For example, if you do a mystery shop June 4th, you’ll get paid around July 20th. It is pretty standard for mystery shopping companies to pay in a month’s time.
Another benefit of becoming a shopper with Helion is the fact that they provide support through training. If you are a brand new shopper, you might be worried about being incapable of performing the tasks. Helion has a training portal that you complete before you are able to choose shops. This means that you will know everything you need to know to start shopping.
One of the things I like about Helion’s shopper portal is the map that shows the shops available in your area. This is the map that shows all the shops available in my area. I zoomed way out, but once you are zoomed in you can see the shops available. Check out this map below of the U.S. The head shaped object represents me. I’m waving to you.
