Gigwalk FAQ

Gigwalk is a mobile app for Android and iOS that allows you to find quick jobs (Gigs) in your area. Each individual Gig is represented by a pin on the map in our mobile application. These Gigs can take anywhere from 5 minutes to a few hours to complete and pay anywhere from $3 to $100.

Clients see the work Gigwalkers submit through the app on our back-end Gigwalk platform. This platform gives brands and retailers on-the-ground visibility and allows them to take action to drive more in-store sales.
The Gigwalk app can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store (Android) or the App Store (iOS). Download the app for iPhone or Android and get started making money right away, in your own neighborhood.

Gigs are primarily posted by consumer brands and retailers seeking on-the-ground visibility into the conditions of their products or events across multiple locations. Customers are looking to verify products are available on the shelf, displayed/priced correctly or that marketing events are done accurately and on-time. Most Gigs require you to document your work and product/event compliance or non-compliance though geo-tagged photos.
Some of the most common Gigs involve going to a retail location and taking pictures of products on the shelf, inspecting displays or event promotions, and answering questions based on what you are seeing at the store location. All of these tasks provide important information for the business in ensuring their retail execution is done right.
Yes, in order to use the Gigwalk app we need to be able to locate you when you use the app, and you’ll need to be able to take photos inside the app. Make sure the following settings are correct on your phone before you get started:

ANDROID:
  • Check that Location Settings is on
  • The below link provides an example of how to turn on location settings - your phone may not match exactly. Contact your phone manufacturer if you need assistance.
    http://www.droid-life.com/2013/01/30/how-to-enable-gps-and-other-location-services-beginners-guide/
    For best results, please make sure that all (usually there are three) location services options in your phone are enabled.
  • We recommend that you use the native Camera app that came with your phone, rather than a third-party camera app.
  • Turn on geotagging in the Camera app. ALL Gigwalk photos must be geo-tagged. Because there are so many different types of Android phones, you might want to do an internet search for "enable geo-tagging" and then the name of your type of phone.
  • You can also check to see if we have located device-specific instructions for your phone yet here: https://gigwalk.zendesk.com/forums/21048385-Android-device-set-up
  • You can also try this article for some generic instructions (steps 4-6): http://smallbusiness.chron.com/geotagging-android-smartphones-38742...

IPHONE:
  • Go to your iPhone Settings, Privacy, Location Services. Make sure Location Services is ON, and then scroll down to Gigwalk and make sure it is marked ON as well.
We are not currently available on any other devices besides iPhone and Android smartphones.
All payments are securely processed from the customer through Paypal - the leading payments provider with advanced fraud protection.
  • Please go to www.paypal.com to set up an account.
  • You will need to confirm your e-mail address and verify your bank account to complete the registration process
  • Verify PayPal
  • Then, you will need to add your PayPal email (which can be different from your Gigwalk Profile email) to your Gigwalk Account through the App.
When permission is required, you can show the retail manager a Credential Letter (or Letter of Authorization) provided by the customer authorizing you to perform the work. This letter can be accessed directly through the Gigwalk app, inside the Gig Instructions.

If you are ever asked by store management to leave, even after presentation of the Credential Letter, please do so immediately and respectfully.
Gigwalkers each have a Performance score based on several factors including such things as successfully completing Gigs and activity level. This score allows Gigwalk to match more complex and higher paying jobs with more talented Gigwalkers. Thus, as you raise your Performance score, you will increase your chances of being selected for higher paying Gigs.

To boost your Gigwalk Performance score and earn as much extra cash as possible, be thorough and professional about the work that you do and submit. When a customer sees that you consistently do good work for them, they have the ability to add you to their private workforce. This grants you access to private Gigs available only for this group.
