The service is evaluated according to pre-established objective criteria.
Mystery shoppers are used by stores, financial institutions, restaurants, department stores, service providers and other similar companies to measure customer service, product quality and the general environment of the above facilities. Their main responsibilities include purchasing and reporting on the overall shopping experience. Mystery shoppers play an important role in meeting customer expectations by pretending to be ordinary customers as they observe and identify various factors that might require improvement.

The mystery shopper can also be used for a detailed analysis of only certain aspects of the sale in case the company requests it.
