Mystery shopping (related terms: mystery consumer, secret shopper)
is a tool used externally by market research companies, watchdog
organizations, or internally by companies themselves to measure
quality of service, or compliance with regulation, or to gather
specific information about products and services. The mystery
consumer's specific identity and purpose are generally not known by
the establishment being evaluated.
Mystery shoppers perform
specific tasks such as purchasing a product, asking questions,
registering complaints or behaving in a certain way, and then provide
detailed reports or feedback about their experiences.

Shoppers are often given instructions or
procedures to make the transaction atypical in order to make the test of
the employees' knowledge and service skills more stringent or more
specific to a particular service issue (known as scenarios). For
instance, mystery shoppers at a restaurant may pretend they are
lactose-intolerant, or a clothing store mystery shopper could enquire
about gift wrapping services. Not all mystery shopping scenarios include
While gathering information, shoppers usually blend
in as regular shoppers at the store being evaluated. They may be
required to take photographs or measurements, return purchases, or count
the number of products, seats, people during the visit. A timer or a
stopwatch may be required.
After the visit the shopper submits
the data collected to the mystery shopping company, which reviews and
analyzes the information, completing quantitative or qualitative
statistical analysis reports on the data for the client company. This
allows for a comparison on how the stores or restaurants are doing
against previously defined criteria.
Mystery shopping was standard practice by the early 1940s as a way
to measure employee integrity. Tools used for mystery shopping
assessments range from simple questionnaires to complete audio and
video recordings. Mystery shopping can be used in any industry, with
the most common venues being retail stores, hotels, movie theaters,
restaurants, fast food chains, banks, gas stations, car dealerships,
apartments, health clubs and health care facilities.
2010, mystery shopping has become abundant in the medical tourism
industry, with healthcare providers and medical facilities using the
tool to assess and improve the customer service experience. In the UK
mystery shopping is increasingly used to provide feedback on customer
services provided by local authorities, and other non-profit
organizations such as housing associations and churches.
