Have Field Agent set the bar too high when it comes to paid app work?

Field agent have been around now for a number of years in the UK. Their pay has always been decent (around £4.50 upwards) and their work load is pretty consistent.


Over the last few years Roamler, StreetSpotr, Clic & Walk etc have all decided to come over to UK shores however reception appears to them have been mixed. (Just check out their social media pages or in-app communication pages)


People seem to be complaining about work that involves taking a few photos, answering a few questions and getting paid £2 a time. Especially it seems when the goal posts always seem to be moving in regards to validating the work that you do.


The question is, have Field Agent just set the bar TOO high in the UK with decent pay for decent tasks? Why are other similar companies offering work that is (a) more complex and (b) pays less?


Market Force pay pretty low fees for some of their work yet people always do them, is it OUR fault for doing the work at £2 and really we have nothing to moan about and are in reality the minority and really there will always me a market of workers willing to do the work for £2 a time.


I think this sort of stuff has only really reared its head over the last year or so when Roamler dropped their fees for the weekly Flower Tasks and their very work heavy mushroom checks appeared.


Then StreetSpotr appeared and offered work for £1 a time doing store checks. Yet the work gets done and so the client is happy and when the repeat work appears it is pitched at the same level.


Next year I think is going to be a very interesting year in the app earning world. I worry that us workers are going to be seen as a commodity and the work we do now is going to be seen as crowd-sourcing which I think is a VERY bad thing for us workers in the long run.


Thoughts?

The field agent is the best, most consistent and high quality app and support. They are not ripping off agents by paying low fees. You do the job=you get paid.
Roamler is total rip of. Clic and walk is ok as paying for jobs done at home and the support is decent with quick turn over. I am yet to try Streetspotr but their fees do not seem nowhere enough. I guess its ok if you are in the area already.
Market Force have low fees, but there is reimbursement for purchase. Some good, some not that good, but they are quick approving tasks and paying.

The Field Agent all the way!!!!

Field Agent is the best app and the other companies need to up their game to be as good as these... Field Agent is the only app i will go out of my way to do tasks for. The other apps i will do the tasks if i am very close to.

Totally agree Field Agent is the best, with Clic and Walk second the One Pulse the only three I have on my phone now.

Agree with the coments about Roamler not worth the effort when there is a high chance your work will get rejected and get poor pay for work.

The thing you have to wonder is

If Field Agent pulled out of the UK market all we are going to be left with are low paying tasks

Right now we can complain as one company pays a lot more for a lot less work during a task

If that company goes, we are gonna be stuck!!

Field Agent definitely seems to have very well paid tasks and a good variety of them compared to Roamler which I have given up on.
When I do upgrade to an IPhone I would definitely be using Field Agent allot.
Clic and Walk I like and they do have a steady stream of At Home Tasks to do so worth it.
Streetspotr is ok nothing near me as yet.
OnePulse is nice and easy.
