Whatever the circumstance may be, companies can find the help they need right from a phone or computer. Gigwalk allows its members to request gigs for small tasks to contracted work. These encompass any services ranging from audits to photography, the sky is the limit. This is an, on-demand, readily available workforce comprised of over 50,000 individuals across all 50 states.
Businesses can connect with people through Gigwalk to get the help they need by simply posting a gig opportunity when the need for help arises. The Gigwalk mobile application, available on iPhone, Android or the Blackberry, makes it easy request gigs from anywhere at any time. Any company who posts a gig must provide a fully detailed description of the work that needs to be completed, a due date, the gig location and the price of the job.
To become a gig provider, also known as a Gig Walker, and start earning extra cash you must setup an account profile. The profile should accurately and thoroughly describe your skills, educational background and work experience to be considered and accepted for gigs. The more you have to offer the gig requesters, the more opportunities you will have. You can browse gigs through the network and apply for the ones that you want. You must also go to the location of the gig in order to be accepted, this policy of the program was implemented so everyone has a chance to make money; one person cannot take all of the posted gigs.
If you receive good reviews on completed work, you will slowly build up your profile and increase your exposure. Gig Walkers can earn “Street Cred” points for good reviews and by doing “pro-bono” tasks to create an image of reliability. With more “Street Cred” points you are able to access higher levels of achievement to unlock a succession of higher paying gigs.
The amount of money per gig can pay anywhere from $3.00-$90.00, some have even been more than $100.00. Gigwalk requesters and Gigwalk providers must have a PayPal account to pay for the work and to receive payment for completing the work. Payment is required upfront for all requests. The money is distributed to all of the parties involved in the transaction. Gigwalk takes a percentage of the payment for their services; in addition, fees for PayPal are also deducted. Once the Gig Walker has completed a job they will be paid after a review on their quality of work has been posted by that gig requester.
The great thing about this service is that it is bringing jobs back into the local work force. With the high unemployment rate, and the need for an immediate local workforce, it is a great temporary fix that benefits everyone. Whether unemployed or employed, there are opportunities to make money; you can take on as many gigs as you want to. This is a nice flexible work option for both the Gig Requesters and the Gig Walkers.

Gig Walk is a Scam...
Gigwalk is notorious for refusing to pay people. There are hundreds of stories all over the web of people who submitted their gig's and had them rejected. Myself included.
I did a gig and provided the images exactly as was requested. However after they were submitted the client changed their mind and wanted more detailed pictures. The client only gave me 24 hours to submit about 150 more images and was very vague in their instructions. I asked the client directly for more time and was granted an extra 24 hours.
However, despite this, gig walk cancelled my gigs (keep in mind these were completed) and refused to pay me. I tried to contact them, but they do not give gig walkers a phone number to reach customer service. You can only use the email on their website. They didn't get back to me for two days then shuffled me around to other departments. The result is I worked 6 hours for gig walk and was supposed to be paid $60 and I got nothing.
This same thing happened to a bunch of other gig walkers on the similar gigs. We are currently pursuing a class action lawsuit against the company. If you have been screwed by gig walk please contact us.
I conducted 2 photo shoots for a lays potato chip display and submitted them on the 2 consecutive days and I was paid within 12 hours. I think the concept is being missed, for the amount of money paid I don't think it is prudent to go out of your way to do them, I located gigs in the area I'm in at the time, or group a few of them together.
Sounds Like Mystery Shopping
Yeah it sounds alot like the mystery shopping emails I get. Unless I can land a certain amount of gigs per day,and they're not already snatched up,it really isn't worth the few dollars. I need a steady paycheck at this point in life.
No Gigwalkers here
Everyone is complaining about this company. Did you keep a copy of all your gigs? Believe me they have receive payment for the jobs you've completed. Gigwalk don't respond to anyone questions but their clients, not even paypal. I filed a complaint with Google Play concerning Gigwalk and their app for not paying. The concept is great but very bad people. Here is the account's manger name firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
I just received my first assignment, to photograph some bags of potatoes at Wegman's. The product wasn't there, and according to the produce manager and customer service, they had never seen anything like it. I reported this to Gigwalk, and I received an email from them stating that they had decided to take me off the assignment. What? I don't even understand what that means, especially since the assignment is still posted. So, including travel time, I spent 45 minutes for nothing.
