SHIPPING / MERCHANDISING
Opportunities with this icon will require you to receive something via mail to install or take into a specific store with you. These require you to complete a previous opportunity “signing up” for that location and committing to completing the opportunity at the specific location, as you will have been shipped the materials needed.
Opportunities with this icon have a sign-up form to send in information required for a future opportunity. These opportunities can range from receiving products or coupons in the mail to be delivered to high paying and high-involvement opportunities that require coordination with Observa.
Opportunities with this icon will require you to call the store and take detailed notes of your conversation with a store employee or manager.
Opportunities with this icon require that you purchase product(s) from a store. You will also have to photograph your itemized receipt showing that you have purchased the required product(s). Once your observation has been validated, you will be reimbursed for the cost of the product(s) up to an amount listed in the observation.
SELL SHEET – PRINT
Opportunities with this icon will require you to print out a sell sheet, flyer, etc. There will be a link to receive the document via email. If you have trouble receiving it, email email@example.com and note the specific address and type of opportunity you are referring to.
Opportunities with this icon will require you to download a secondary app in order to complete the observation.
Opportunities with this icon are “standard” observations – they will likely involve going into a store, taking photos of certain products or sections, and filling out information such as pricing, stock levels, inventory, etc.
Opportunities with this icon are available for ‘waitlist.’ This means that either another observer has accepted this opportunity and is in the process of completing it–and if you want to be notified if it becomes available, you can add yourself to the waitlist–or another observer has already completed the observation and submitted it, and it is waiting in the queue to be reviewed and accepted. If it is accepted, the icon will disappear from the map. If the observation is rejected, the opportunity will become available again.
