A work friend and I both use Job Spotter and tell each other if we find an advert and both of us have been paid for the same job advert so it doesn't seem to be the case that you do not get paid if somebody else has taken the photo.

I have received some high points, all in 1 shopping centre in my lunch hour which was nice :) - 229 for a toy store, 194 for a second hand childrens store and 203 for a coffee and muffin place plus a few others around the 30-50 mark. All stores that are one offs and no chains which is why they are paying more. If I go to the main shopping centre down the road, they are all around the 5 point mark.

I wasn't aware of recruitment agencies so thanks for that one :)
i hear what you say but why would they pay twice when they already have the advert?

I don’t think the pay is any lower recently. The lowest I’ve been offered recently is 68 points but most of them have been between 150-200 points. I’ve made about £16 on this app over the past few weeks because I’ve been out and about a lot. And even a few pence is better than nothing, especially when you consider that is takes less than a minute to submit each one!

I agree with you there.. I went to a 15 minute appointment on Friday in my lunch break and picked up 448 points from shops around where I went.. There appear to be a lot more at the moment with Christmas vacancies. I tried a recruitment agency as mentioned above and got 16 points for one sign when I was testing it to see if will go through so I shall pop back at some point to cover the rest of the signs! I will never know why they pay twice (asked above) but glad they do as it gives me more points if somebody has covered it before me :)

The app wont even open for me for the last two days.

I dont think its worth even 3p they should pay you a decent amount for what you do. You are getting the job ads for them it would cost them alot more to come and get them themselves.

I think their might be something wrong with your app as I have just tested mine and it is fine and the only time I get 5 points is when I am in a large shopping centres and taking pictures of shops with very large chains. It would not be 3p everytime, I get this rarely and as said above, I am easily getting over the 3p mark even with the recruitment agencies for what is effectively a 10 second job. I am happy with the amount that I am paid and glad the app exists.

I have made well over £500 on amazon vouchers thanks to this app over the last year.

I want to stress that this all from journeys that i would be doing anyway, so there is no added petrol expense to factor in etc.

The key shops to focus on (as an example):

Takeaways
Barbers
Nail Salons

Stay clear of well known chains, it is not worth your time. The whole idea of Jobspotter is to capture ads for businesses that would not necessarily advertise online, so this rules out the likes of Greggs, Dominos or whichever chains ads may be paying out 3p!

6 points for an independent bakery today!!!
Its very hit and miss at times i agree, but i tend to find when you balance it all out you end up getting more good than bad!

Remember everyone, jobspotter refreshes every month so you can go back for the same ads at your local shops time and time again.

PS: Im not employed by Jobspotter marketing team honest!

I had 4 yesterday that were 5 points, they were all in a shopping centre so I am guessing had been taken a few times before and a couple were in Chains. I then walked out of there and got 92 for an eyebrow shop, 33 for a sign in a recruitment window, 27 in the Royal Mail sorting office when I later picked up a letter and 52 for a vaping shop I walk passed on the way to the sorting office so it is possible to get more than 5...

I am talking from my own experience.
Yes I understand that, I just wanted to let you know that it seems to be an issue in your area and it's not an overall issue with JobSpotter everywhere. Unfortunately, it appears that your area is one that looks like it's not a high point one. It's a shame there isn't anyway that you can get a clear explanation of how the point system works or why it is such low points in certain areas. The only thing I can think of is that there are a lot of people taking pictures in that area but really don't know...

I got 207 points from a hair salon and 80 points for a joke shop earlier today... And 5 points from a different salon.

Seems quite hit and miss to me.

Not sure if I'm having an excellent day today or they've changed their algorithms, but I've submitted 8 jobs today, 5 have been 170 points or above, and nothing less than 59 points. Definitely not complaining!

I had one last weekend after updating the app (not sure if this was the reason though!) that I got 278 points for and it was a restaurant but not a chain. I picked up 234 for a hairdresser Saturday girl advert and a Chinese takeaway got me 227 so I was glad I had a walk down one of the quieter high streets 10 mins walk from my flat! All the rest were not bad scores either so maybe the algorithms have been changed.. and I am definitely not complaining either!

Does anyone want to join in with your highest payment this month.

Mine was 207 points for barbers. Lowest was 5 points for chains.

Go on then, 291 for a steak house but I can only equal your 5 points for a Sue Ryder shop (I did get 1 point last month for a pharmacy that has a chain in the south!)
