Welcome to my BeMyEye App review where we will look into whether or not this app up to the claims being made by the developers.
There are so many make money apps on the market today that choosing which ones are worth the effort is increasingly hard to tell at first glance.
The amount of times I’ve installed an app only to find myself deleting it a few days later like this one here.
If you’re reading this review then you’re obviously thinking of installing this one which hopefully I can give you a better view of it before you waste your time or not as the case may be.
FOUNDER: Gian Luca Petrelli
What Is The BeMyEye App About
Ever wanted to be a mystery shopper? Well, now you can. The BeMyEye App allows you to assume the mystery shopper role by taking photographs of certain products, have a quick chat with the salesperson and submit your completed mission.
It’s not only stores that you have to go into, you get missions for car parking spaces as well, taking pictures of signage etc. you can even choose to verify road restrictions!
You get paid as soon as the mission has been approved which is usually in 24 hrs and once you have £5 you can get it put into either your Bank account or your PayPal account.
With most missions paying around £3 – £8 the potential for earning some extra cash looks pretty good at the moment.
The Sign Up Process
You can either sign up with your Facebook account or email and password along with your name, country and D.O.B and this is also where you can put an invitation code if you have one (more on that a bit later).
You will then be sent a confirmation email to verify your account.
Once you’re inside the app you can link your preferred way to get paid to it, all very simple.
The Invitation Code
Let’s quickly explain what this invite code is about. When you sign up you get the option to put in a code, for instance you could use my code – 51n357 and you would £1 and I would £1.
There are a few stipulations in place before you get your money such as:
- Must complete a mission in store
- New users only
- Have to be in the same country as you
The app will find you missions to go on in your local area, you can set the distance you wish travel, but remembering that the missions pay a small amount you’re not going to want to be traveling long distances.
Now, this is where the app falls down a bit. If you are in a populated area like a city then you are going to get a lot more choice whereas if you are in the country your choices are going to be few and far between and the ones that are available will probably mean traveling, the curse of living in the country.
Take a look at this screenshot:
As you can see London has quite a few choices, but if you were in Cornwall there is only one option.:
So, it will depend hugely on whereabouts you live as to the amount of missions that you’ll have the chance to do. The other thing I’d like to point out is that if you do see a mission you like then you’ll need to reserve it otherwise you could find that when you’re ready to do it that it’s not available anymore.
It’s a first come first served basis and there is only a certain number to fill, so make sure you reserve it.
What You’ll Be Doing
Again, just like how many missions are available to you in a certain area, what you’ll be doing differs from place to place.
In my area at the moment I have a choice of:
- Gondola end check in a supermarket
- Off street parking audit
- Fixture and display check in a Chemist
- Road turn restriction
Now, these are paying between £3 – £6 apart from the Off street parking audit which is paying £8, unfortunately it’s 23 miles away, would take me 48 mins by car (through country lanes) and then answer 34 questions and take photos of signage it just really wouldn’t be worth the effort.
But if I was living quite near there or was visiting that area then it would be a different case all together.
I travel to London quite regular, in fact I was there this weekend on a friends Hen do. If I had this on me then I could have taken advantage of the closely populated missions.
I hope this has highlighted the diversity in results that you can expect from this app. Live in a built up area = good amount of missions, live in a rural area = a sparse amount of missions.
Another feature is the level up option. This happens when you earn XP. to progress from level 1 you need to get to 100 XP. There are 20 levels and each level opens up a new feature such as when you reach level 18 the delay between 2 payments goes down to 1 day.
What Did I Like
- Very low payment threshold
- PayPal payments
- Referral program
- Chance to open up new options
What I wasn’t Too Keen on
- Payment on some mission was a between price (£3 – £7) so you don’t know how much it’s is really worth
- Very much location dependent
- Some tasks require interaction with the staff
- The example images wren’t working (these are so you can identify what it is you’re meant to be taking a photo of because if you get it wrong they won’t accept it)
What Do Other Eyes think
It’s always a good idea to see what other people who are using the app think of it and to see what sort of complaints there are if any.
Here’s a comment from one user that highlights that between price that I mentioned:
The main complaint seems to be that completed missions are being rejected even though the criteria has been met as well as an unrealistic amount of photos.
Another complaint I’ve seen is that they don’t actually refund any purchases you need to make.
But with 1 million + downloads you’re bound to get some negative comments, you can’t please everybody.
I think this is a really good way to earn some extra cash. I do think that it is going to depend on what area you live in, but it’s a great idea.
This is only going to earn you some money if you don’t need to travel, any traveling involved then you might as well chuck money down the drain cause you it’s not worth it.
But if you live in a big city or built up area then you should have plenty of opportunity to make a few quid and they do seem to pay out quite quickly.
I haven’t reviewed a lot of apps, but this one does seem to be a different way to make money and quite fun too.
One guy completed 211 missions and he has reportedly made £2,000, but by his own admission had to spend entire days traveling the length and breadth of Britain.
He didn’t say how much that cost him to do that, but I can’t imagine he made too much when he took his expenses out.
I wouldn’t recommend going to those extremes, if you have missions in your immediate area then go for them, if not, don’t worry about them.
You can carry on looking for apps that pay a little bit of pocket money or none at all as the case may be or you could spend your time doing something that would earn you money for years to come.
What I am talking about is Affiliate Marketing. Now I know you probably haven’t a clue what that is, I didn’t either before I got involved in it, that was over 4 years ago now, probably a bit longer than that actually.
Did you know that with Affiliate Marketing you have a fantastic opportunity to turn a hobby or something you’re passionate about into a full time income.
The main thing you need is a website and the training to go with it.
Don’t know the first thing about building a website or how to make money from one? Don’t worry I didn’t either when I first started, but if I can do it then anyone can do it, believe me.
The good thing is you don’t even need to pay anything to see if it’s for you.

I hope this review of the BeMyEye app has helped you out in some way or you may have already used it and want to let everyone know how you got on with it.
