The Mystery Shopping Providers Association of North America offers such certification which the organization states basically allows clients understand that you own the basic skills needed to provide the shopping service. The fundamental skills test can be taken online and the charge is small. An even more expensive certification is available and for that price you obtain a specific amount of instruction and up-to-date mystery shopping industry literature for the ever-changing field. Is accreditation necessary? No. It might help you get a foot in the home if your company is employing mystery shoppers and has received a negative experience having an unqualified consumer before. Other than that, certification won't get you anymore buying gigs than if you dont have it.

Accreditation is a little different, although it is always true that you need to not have to pay to be a mystery shopper.
