Two choices in personal shoppers

Personal shoppers are of two kinds depending on who pays the shopper for his or her services. Firstly, there are those freelance shoppers for whom you pay yourself. The fee is calculated on different factors, the most important being the time spent on shopping. Most of the freelance shoppers charge hourly fees. Secondly, there are those shoppers who are paid for by the stores. They hire shoppers to assist their customers shop. If you are a frequent visitor to a store and they have a good shopping support staff, you can be benefited because you get great shopping advice without having to spend a dime. On the other hand, if there is a store that has a great range of merchandize but no shopping service. You might want to hire a freelance shopper to help you shop.

Advantages of hiring freelance shoppers

The advantages of hiring freelance shoppers are many. The only limitation is that you have to pay out of your own pocket while you do not have to pay for shoppers who are employed by stores. Barring this limitation, the kind of shopping service is rift with benefits. Firstly, you can hire the shopper any time you feel like shopping and the shopper will stick to you if you want to go round several stores. Since many stores might not have a shopping service, having one by your side can be highly beneficial. Secondly, you do not have to stick to one particular brand for shopping, which you will have to, if you choose to take the services of shoppers employed by the store. This stands especially true when you shop for groceries or clothes. If you are not brand specific and like to experiment with several brands, you should choose a freelance professional shopper.

Advantages of shoppers appointed by stores

The major advantage of shoppers appointed by stores is that you do not have to pay. You only pay for the retail price of the product and the store takes care of the cost of additional shopping service. You can enjoy your privacy while still being able to enjoy professional shopping service.
