But is Field Agent a scam or is it really a legit way to earn some extra money?

Let me just reveal right away that there are different opinions about this out there but a lot of this is due to misunderstandings about different platforms using the same name.

In this Field Agent review, I will clarify all this and show you exactly what you can expect and also how you can make sure you join the correct platform if you decide to join.

Summary

Field Agent can be a fun way to make a bit of extra money if you have a lot of extra time to spare. But it is not the most effective way to earn, as you have to go to local stores, the rewards are fairly low, and there is no guarantee there will be jobs in your area.

So it takes a bit of planning to make it worth it. But it is a legit way to earn if you just do it with the right expectations and make sure to follow all instructions carefully.

It will, however, not be a way to replace your full-time income. If this is what you are looking for, you need to look for other options.

What is Field Agent and what does it offer?

Field Agent is a platform that works with some really big companies like Walmart, Coca-Cola, Kraft, Nestle, and many more.

These companies regularly need people to do small tasks for them and asks Field Agent to find someone who can do the jobs – this is where you come in.

As a member of Field Agent, you get access to a list of available jobs in your local area and can reserve them.

The exact task you need to do will depend on the job but usually it is not something that takes long. But usually you have to do it in a store in your local area, so you have to go to the required store in most cases.

Examples of tasks can be to rank something, submit a photo, video, take a survey about your experience, and more.

In general, there are 4 types of jobs you can find as a member of Field Agent:

Job type 1 – Common jobs

These types of jobs are the most common on Field Agent.

Usually the process is 4 steps:

  1. Go to a specific store
  2. Find a specific product or display
  3. Take one or more photos of it
  4. Answer a few questions

Just be aware that you need to read all the instructions carefully for each job. If you do not do everything as it is explained, you will not get the job approved and you will, thereby, have wasted your time.

There are, for example, specific requirements for the photos you take. Below you can see a short video where Field Agent explains what you need to do to take the right photos.

So just make sure to do the jobs correct so you will get paid for them.

Job type 2 – Scavenger hunts

Scavenger Hunts is a specific type of jobs on Field Agent. In my opinion, this option is quite confusing and from reading feedback from others as well, it seems like I am not the only one that finds them confusing.

Anyway, if you just know how they work, they can be a way to make a bit of extra cash.

What you need to know is that these jobs are hunts. This means Field Agent also does not know exactly where you can find the product you have to hunt for.

Usually, you will just get a vague product description and a UPC (Unique Product Code). You then have to find this product and fulfill the requirements of the job.

If you are lucky, you might have the exact product at home and you can then take the required photos etc. at home. But you can also end up spending quite a bit of time trying to figure out what product it is.

So they are not necessarily the best use of time, in my opinion.

Job type 3 – “Precision Required” jobs

These jobs are in many ways similar to the common jobs.

However, they have very strict requirements and can be quite a bit more difficult than the regular jobs.

If you, for example, do not take the photos EXACTLY as described it will be denied.

So these jobs can take a bit of practice and they require you to be extremely precise.

Job type 4 – Ticket jobs

The ticket jobs on Field Agent are not paid jobs as such and they will also not affect your agent score.

However, they can help you qualify for future jobs. In addition to this, you will enter into the monthly prize draw for cash prizes.

The ticket jobs give you entries into the monthly prize draw.

So if you take these ticket jobs regularly and are very lucky, you might win some nice extra cash.

Just remember that it is prize draws and there are a lot of members participating so there is no guarantee you will ever win anything.

How to get started on Field Agent?

Field Agent is an app so to get started, you, first of all, need to download the app. You can download it through Google Play or the App Store.

You need to download the Field Agent app to get started.

The next step is to then fill out your profile. You need to answer some questions to do this and it is important to do this to get access to the jobs inside Field Agent.

Once you are a member, you will get access to a list in your local area.

You can see the jobs on a list or on a map of your local area.

Once you have found a job you would like to do, you can reserve it. Just be aware that you have to complete the job with 2 hours after you have reserved it.

If you do not do this, you will lose the job and it will affect your agent score which can affect your chances of getting future jobs.

So you need to plan it a bit and not reserve a job unless you are sure you can do it within 2 hours.

How much money can you earn?

The big question before joining any kind of earning opportunity is to know how much you can earn so you do it with the right expectations.

When it comes to Field Agent, the pay per job will depend on the specific tasks. But, in general, the jobs there pay between $1-$12 per hour. This will vary slightly depending on the country you live in (more about available countries later).

You can see the pay for each job before reserving them so you just need to plan your time accordingly.

But no matter what, you need to know that it is NOT a way to create a business from home.

According to feedback I have seen from several members, if you a quite active, you can maybe earn around $1,000 per year.

yelp review of field agent

Many people say you can make money on the side but NOT a second income.

There is no guarantee you will make this much and it, of course, depends a lot on the time you put in.

In my opinion, the big disadvantage is that you have to go to a specific store so you can end up running around. So you really need to plan it carefully not to waste too much time or to spend more on transportation than what you earn.

But if you have the extra time to do it, it can be a fun and realistic way to make a bit of extra cash. You just need to do it with the right expectations.

Just be aware that if you do not follow the instructions carefully, you will not get paid.

I have seen quite a lot of stories from people saying they did not get paid. If that happens, you have just wasted your time, and you need to be aware of this as there is no guarantee you will get paid just for doing the job.

It needs to be approved before you will get paid.

Also, be aware that there is no guarantee there will be available jobs in your area. Sometimes there might be but other times there might not be for a while. So it is not necessarily income you can count on depending on where you live.

How will you get paid?

Another important thing is to know how you will get your money.

In my opinion, the payout methods Field Agent offers are pretty good. The main way of paying out is through direct deposit. You can set it up, so you will get quick cashouts every time you have completed a task.

If you prefer, you can also get paid through PayPal.

Usually, you will have the money in your account 2-3 business days after having requested a payout. Just be aware that the exact payout methods can vary a bit depending on the country you live in.

Who can join Field Agent?

Field Agent is only available in certain countries.

At the moment of writing this review, it is available in 7 countries.

field agent app countries

You can join Field Agent from 7 countries.

These countries are the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Mexico, South Africa, and Ecuador.

So if you do not live in one of these countries, you can not download and use Field Agent at the moment.

Beware of Field Agent scams!

At the beginning I mentioned some people say Field Agent is a scam.

I have done quite a bit of research into this and when you look at the stories about this, it reveals what seems to be a scam but that has nothing to do with the official Field Agent app.

Below you can see someone explaining a situation where she has been scammed by a company calling itself Field Agent.

field agent scam complaint

Example of someone being scammed by a person posing as Field Agent.

In case, you cannot read all of it in the image above, this person was contacted through LinkedIn and told about Field Agent. She then received a check of almost $3,000 for her first assignment she had to deposit and then go buy Apple gift cards for them.

She then sends photos of the gift cards and it turned out the check bounced and the gift cards had been emptied and she was scammed for almost $3,000.

I have seen several stories like this but I just want to make it clear that this has nothing to do with the official Field Agent app.

Field Agent is a big brand and there will then, unfortunately, always be someone trying to exploit this.

To avoid such scams there are a few things you can do if you want to use Field Agent.

Only take jobs through the official Field Agent app. According to the company itself, you will never receive jobs outside the app and you will also never receive payment outside the app.

So if anyone is offering you tasks or payments outside the app, be very careful.

Furthermore, look at the job and the payment. Field Agent offers small jobs and you would never be asked to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to be able to complete a task.

If something sounds strange, contact the official Field Agent support and check before you risk anything as it seems like someone is trying to misuse the name of Field Agent to scam people.

But if you do everything through the official app you will be fine. You then just need to consider if this is really the right option for you to earn or not.

Final verdict

The Field Agent app can be a way to earn a bit of extra money on the side. But it is not for everyone, and you need to do it with the right expectations if you decide to join.

So let’s finish this review by summing up the pros and cons so you can get a better overview before deciding to join or not.

prosPros:

  • Free to join
  • Can be a fun way to earn
  • Easy access to small jobs

consCons:

  • Can be time-consuming
  • Limited earning potential
  • No guarantee there will be jobs in your area

Field Agent can, in my opinion, be a fun way to make a bit of extra money if you have a lot of extra time to spare. But it is not the most effective way to earn, as you have to go to local stores.

So it takes a bit of planning to make it worth it. But it is a legit way to earn if you just do it with the right expectations and make sure to follow all instructions carefully.

It will, however, not be a way to replace your full-time income. If this is what you are looking for, you need to look for other options.

How I make a living online

Field Agent is not for everyone as the number of available jobs will depend a lot on where you live so you will never really know how much you can earn.

Personally, I also prefer having an income that does not depend on how many small jobs there are in my local area as it is not really something you can count on every month.

I have, therefore, instead been able to create on full-time online income that now allows me to work when and where I want to completely on my own terms.

Having an online income, in my opinion, gives the ultimate freedom as you can truly work when and where you want to, and you are not dependent on someone else hiring you.

It is actually something you can learn no matter your previous experience – but I will also be honest with you and say that it will NOT happen overnight. It takes a little patience and some hard work but if you are willing to this, the sky is the limit.

So depending on your preferences, then either Field Agent can be a way to earn a bit of extra cash, or you can check out how you can create an online income on your own.
