Field Agent UK is a handy app that gives you the opportunity to earn money whilst you’re out and about shopping.
There are plenty of money making opportunities out there, but it is often difficult to find out those that are worthwhile, those that take far too much effort and those that are just scams.
In my never-ending search for new ways to make money so that I could finally leave my day job, I have downloaded several money-making apps. Some have been far better than others, but I had heard good things about Field Agent. So I decided to sign up and see if I could start planning my early retirement.
What is Field Agent UK?
Field Agent collects information for businesses by the use of crowdsourcing. Simply put, they collect data from you and then send it on to businesses that require it.
How does it work?
Signing-up is a simple process. You provide your name, date of birth, gender and email address. You also need to provide your postcode, so they can match you with jobs in your local area. There are a few more questions such as whether you drink, smoke, have pets, etc. You then have to complete a simple Agent Training survey and you then wait for the jobs to roll in.
Jobs generally involve you completing small tasks in shops or completing surveys.
Is it just mystery shopping?
Essentially, yes. However, most mystery shopping sites require you to pass tests before you can take jobs. You also need to read through large amounts of information before a job commences and sometimes complete long reports when one finishes. Field Agent UK is a much more condensed and simpler process.
Are there many jobs available?
Unfortunately, not in my area. I waited for a couple of weeks and nothing appeared. The only message I received gave me the opportunity to complete a survey for a chance to win £100, but that was all. I do live in a smallish town though, so it wasn’t totally unexpected. If you live in a major town or city, you should see plenty of jobs available.
How am I paid?
When you have money in your Field Agent account, you can either withdraw using PayPal or have the funds sent directly to your bank account.
My Field Agent review conclusion
Unfortunately, the app hasn’t been particularly successful for me (perhaps even a failure). I’m still waiting for a chance to earn money, so I can’t even assess a Field Agent cash out. However, I know of people from larger towns and cities that make a decent amount of money from it. My advice would be to sign up and see what’s available. The chances are though, if you don’t receive anything in the first few weeks, you’re unlikely to receive anything at all.
