Have you ever wished that you could offer a higher rate of pay at certain locations -- without creating a new batch?  You can with batch pay bonuses!

Batch pay bonuses allow you to set a different pay and reimbursement for a group of locations within a batch.  To explain this, let's use an example.  Suppose you have created a batch that pays $10 for a shop.  For some locations where it is more difficult to find shoppers, you want to offer a pay rate of $14 instead (and have that $14 advertised on the map pin, to incentivize shoppers to take these shops).  To set this up, follow these steps:

  1. Set up a batch paying $10 per shop.  This batch can have a batch group (i.e., the locations that can be shopped in this batch), but it does not have to.
  2. Create a location group that includes the locations for which you want to offer a bonus.  
  3. Set a location group type on the new location group.  To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Go to Setup -> Locations -> Location Group Types and click Add Group Type.

    2. Enter a descriptive name such as "Bonus groups" and click Create.

    3. Click Add/Remove Group Types on groups to add the type to your group.

    4. Select the group type that you created from the dropdown, enter the name of the bonus location group and click Next.

    5. On the next page, click Save to set the type on the group.

When you are finished with the setup, contact support (support@prestomobilesurveys.com) with the following information: 

  • Batch name (or ID)
  • Bonus location group name
  • Pay amount for bonus shops
  • Reimbursement amount for bonus shops (if any)

We will configure the settings on the batch.

Do I need to do this for every batch where I want to offer a bonus?  

It depends!  If you are offering bonuses on the same locations in all batches, you do not need to do any of the steps above - just contact support with the details as described above when you have a new batch where you want to offer a bonus.  If you want to offer bonuses for different locations in different batches, you need to create a new group for each batch where the locations are different.  You don't need to create a new location group type for the new group, though - you can use the same location group type for all the bonus pay groups.
