INTRODUCTION

In a nutshell the EasyShift app is a way for people to access small, local jobs in their area to make a bit of extra cash.

The app is available for iOS and android mobile devices, and can be found in the usual app stores or downloaded directly from EasyShiftapp.com.

It matches up local people in a particular geography to available tasks, usually fairly basic in nature, allowing them to earn some extra money on a part time basis.

People who register their interest can complete as many or as few tasks as they like for modest reimbursement.

EasyShift has been around for a good few years, and is Quiri’s way of using a mobile workforce to collect intelligence for the retail industry.


 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Once you have signed up in the app, you will be able to check what tasks are available in your area. The tasks are referred to as “shifts”. Some examples of places where you might be asked to perform tasks are a local coffee shop, a grocery store or a gas station. However, they are likely to all have some form of retail business associated with them, afte all it’s Quiri that’s behind the whole thing and they are retail intelligence specialists!

The tasks or “shifts” are designed to take a relatively short

After you sign up with their application, you will be able to check the Shifts available in your local area. The website says these Shifts should be available all around you, whether at your local coffee house, gas station, grocery store, and many other locations near you.

The jobs usually pay between $2 and $20, dependent on what is required. However, before you get too excited, it’s useful to point out that many fall into the $2 to $5 range!

Let’s take a look into the pros and cons of this opportunity.


WHAT’S GOOD ABOUT IT?

  • It’s free to access and sign up – you can do so within the app itself, once you have downloaded it.
  • The tasks or “shifts” are designed to take a relatively short length of time, so can be incorporated into parts of your day
  • The tasks are touted as being simple to complete – such as taking a picture of something in-store, or giving your opinion on how a product is merchandised.
  • The reimbursement is paid via PayPal, so is nice and secure – they company claims to pay within 48 hours of a task being completed

WHAT’S NOT SO GOOD?

  • Having researched customer reviews across a number of different places, there are some quite negative comments being posted. Some of the more common complaints about the EasyShift App are:
    • not being paid because there has been some form of technical issue with the app
    • not getting timely response from the customer support team
    • not enough tasks being available, or tasks disappearing immediately on becoming available
  • Very few opportunities outside of major towns and cities

WHO IS IT PITCHED AT?

Anyone who wants to make a bit of extra cash on a part time basis. You need to be mobile and able to get yourself to and from the locations for the tasks.

You also need to relatively self-confident – it can take some courage to walk into a store and start snapping off pictures. As this seems to be one of the more common tasks or “shifts”, if you’re not confident doing so, then this opportunity is perhaps not for you.

Here are some customer reviews, taken from the Google Play store, which I think are a fair representation of the type of reviews you will find anywhere on EasyShift.

WHAT TRAINING/TOOLS DOES IT OFFER

None.

Once you have downloaded the app, you are pretty much on your own. However, it is relatively straight forward and self explanatory, so no need to be a techno-whizz. This is how the process goes…

MY FINAL OPINION

 

When I first came across this, I thought “That sounds good in theory”! And it is good in theory – after all it’s just an app that you can download for free.

However, when I did research it I was surprised how many people seemed to have had some sort of problem with either finding tasks, or getting paid. On the flip side of that, there are also many people who have been using it for years and are more than happy with it.

I do think you need to be confident in order to carry out the tasks, so that’s something to bear in mind.

 

 

VERDICT: 

Legitimate

I think there is potential for small financial gain here. You won’t get rich quickly, but it might be ideal for people with some spare time who want to put that time to constructive financial use.

Given the average payout of $2 to $5 per task, make sure it covers your transport with some to spare – otherwise you’re not really gaining! There will be higher paid tasks available at times too, but they are sure to be in high demand.

  1. Hello. Well I can honestly say that I have never heard on this before. I have to agree with you totally here, in theory this sounds like a really good way of making extra money and I’m sure for anyone in the know, this app could be turned into something really good. I’m sure that more people would use is, if it worked correctly, perhaps paid a little more and maybe even gave people the chance to prove themselves in a professional position.

    1. Hi Andrew,

      You are bang on about the “theory” of it sounding good. There seems to be a lot of people using it, but I think to maximize it you would need to be based in a big city!

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment,

      Mara.

  2. Thank You for sharing your review on the EasyShift App 🙂

    I do like the idea of making money from this App on my Samsung phone during my spare time, especially lunch times at work when I’m bored!

    It is a great concept, and I like the idea of it being free too! However, the 2 main things that really disccourage me are not getting paid, and the lack of tasks available. Earning small payments I can live with, but not actually getting paid that money would infuriate me!

    However, Wealthy Affiliate seems like an awesome alternative!

    1. Thank you for leaving a comment Neil. It worries me too that there are people claiming they haven’t been paid at all by EasyShift. Technology is great, but when it goes wrong it can be a total nightmare! Wealthy Affiliate is definitely a solid option.

  3. Hi there! This is a very convenient way of finding part time jobs. Actually I am searching for a new job for my father because he just lost one. He already applied Nd sent some resumes but no one seems to return his calls. So is this app available in los angeles? Do you have to send resumes? Thanks in advance for yiur response.

    1. Hi John,

      It’s nice that you are trying to help out your Dad. Yes, Easyshift will be available in Los Angeles and should present a higher chance of “tasks” because it’s a large city. I don’t think a resume is required, but I suggest you download the app on behalf of your Dad and see where it takes you. It’s a safe chance to take because it’s free to do so. If you have any concerns, please come back to me and I’ll see what I can do to help. Good luck to you both.

  4. Well I have to say that that is a really cool idea – I bet there are a few hard workers out there absolutely raking it in at the moment!
    If you have the time and are able to apply yourself in the right manner I bet you could get a half decent wage out of this app – great review
