10-second BeMyEye review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

There are better paying mystery shopping sites out there, but this is still an app worth checking to see if there are jobs near you. It’s just not worth making specific trips.


You’ve probably stumbled across this review because you’re looking for a way to make some extra money from your phone. The issue is, telling the legit apps from the scams. That’s why I’ve signed-up for these money making apps, so that you don’t get caught out.

I don’t usually pay much attention to adverts, but one morning, as I scrolled through a large number of pointless Facebook posts about people and their dogs I came across an advert for BeMyEye. I’ve made some decent money from some mystery shopping tasks before, so I was instantly interested.

What is BeMyEye?

BeMyEye is a mystery shopping app run from your phone. The app is owned by BeMyEye Holdings Limited, a British company based in London and incorporated in 2015.

Taken from their website:

Europe’s leading provider of crowdsourced in-store data. Operating in  21 countries, BeMyEye leverages 1M on-demand data gatherers (known as ‘Eyes’) to collect the richest causal data available on sales execution, in large supermarkets, independent grocers and specialist stores for more than 400 international blue chip manufacturers, retailers and agencies.

In other words, a company may want to check on one of their stores, so asks BeMyEye to help. In turn, BeMyEye will pay you to do the check.

Is BeMyEye safe?

There are some major companies that work with BeMyEye, including Dyson, Pepsico and Mars. After 2 years of using the app, I have never had any issues.

The good

Joining BeMyEye is far simpler than most other mystery shopping sites I’ve joined and took just a few minutes.

There are plenty of jobs available, which is often unusual for the deepest part of the South-East. The app also tells you how far away they are from your location. The jobs are generally quite simple and usually take just a few minutes, all from your phone. Some of the tasks just wanted me to take photos of street names!

There is a referral scheme, so you can earn £1 for every friend that signs up to BeMyEye.

The bad

Most of the jobs don’t pay particularly well. Expect to earn anywhere between £3-5. That means that most of the jobs aren’t worth making a special trip for. If you’re already in the area they are worth doing, otherwise, I would leave them.

Some of the jobs are an absolute pain. For example, I had to take a photo of a water display in a supermarket. I spent 10 minutes wandering around and I couldn’t find it anywhere. I could have still completed the task, but BeMyEye wanted me to take photos of the kiosk area and the front of the tills. That’s all very well, but there were about 20 checkouts! There was no way I was walking up and down the shop taking all those photos.

How much can you earn with BeMyEye?

You can either withdraw your earnings through PayPal (£5 minimum) or bank transfer (£20 minimum). I withdrew via PayPal and it took just under a day for the money to reach me. Taking into consideration travel time, expect to only earn around £4 per hour.

My BeMyEye review conclusion

So is BeMyEye worth it? There are far better-paying mystery shopping sites out there (see my link below). However, if there’s a task close to you, it’s certainly worth doing. Just don’t go out of your way. This is an app that will stay on my phone, even if I just check it every few days.

If you decide to sign-up, please use my BeMyEye referral code: wvq9p3. We both receive £1.

Is BeMyEye legit?

Yes. The company has been operating since 2015 and provides regular work for 1000’s of shoppers.

How does BeMyEye make money?

BeMyEye will be paid by a company (such as a supermarket) to collect information such as how well they meet shopper’s expectations. BeMyEye then passes some of this fee to you, the mystery shopper.

I've only had one task so far on BeMyEye, which was a fun retail shop audit. It keeps on suggesting missions hundreds of miles away! However, it might be worth keeping on the smartphone for now :)

Must admit I never really found much (or anything...) near me with BeMyEye, so I'd probably give it a miss too... Great review! x
