Getting Started – Become An Agent!

Step 1. Download and install the latest Field Agent App from here:

Field agent - Apple Play StoreField Agent review - Google Play Store

Step 2. Create your login details and complete your profile.

Step 3. From the main navigation menu, click on Find Jobs.

Step 4. Accept a job that you are interested in and complete the job within the time frame and submit your work for approval.

Step 5. Get paid! I am in South Africa and direct deposit is my only option. Other countries will have payment options like Dwolla as well.


It is important to read the terms of use since most of the negative reviews I read was because users did not abide by the rules.

The most common rule that people miss is that you are not allowed to use the same login details on different phones. You need to have an account per phone.

Sometimes couples want to work together and they use the same login details on both phones. This results in your account being terminated as it is not allowed.

Field Agent Jobs – What Can I expect?

If memory serves me correctly, my first job was to fill in a quick survey that forms part of your profile makeup. This is beneficial for matching you with the correct jobs.

The jobs themselves are exciting and make you feel like a true agent! Field Agent jobs will include taking a picture of a specific product on the shelf, doing paid surveys, or giving feedback on a warm meal you bought at a takeaway restaurant. Doing a Field Agent job is by far the best option.

Field Agent jobs can be selected from the job menu or from a map like Google Maps. In the job-find settings, you can adjust the area via zip code or your location, the distance from your location, the highest paying or closest jobs in your area.

Selecting a Field Agent job, it will outline the task set out for you and the time frame in which you need to complete the task. If you are happy with the selected task, you simply accept it

It is super easy to do. But let me take you through my experience as a field agent:

My 007 Experience With Field Agent

My first job I accepted was at KFC in my local area.

The job appeared under the My Jobs menu with a timer counting down next to it for when I needed to finish it. I had 12 hours to do the job if memory serves. Some jobs will only be eligible for 2 hours.

My task was to order a warm meal at KFC and have the meal in the parking lot or inside. The next bit of the task can only be activated once I am there. So you do each bit of the task step-by-step.

KFC OutsideIt is a Saturday late morning and I said to the wife: “Let’s have some KFC!” The secret agent in me did not say anything about my mission just in case this does not work out.

If I told her and it didn’t work out; I can already hear: ‘John, you are such a sucker. Have you not researched the company first?’ Lying is futile. My wife is a natural lie detector and I did not read any reviews. I was too exited.

My wife was all in for some KFC. She just loves KFC. That is why I chose this mission instead of the others.

Arriving at KFC, I check the map on the Field Agent map and double-check the address in the task description to make sure I am at the right location.

The instructions then were to order a hot meal. We went in and ordered whatever we liked and I convinced my wife that we should have it there.

After receiving our food, my next instruction was to enjoy the meal which we did, and then continued with the task.

Ticking off the previous section of the task, it asks me to fill in the nearest street corner, rate the friendliness, asked if my food was good and at a good temperature, and if I was asked for a donation to a charity with my purchase.

The last thing was to snap a good-quality picture of my till slip.

That was it! I got paid the next day. R100 which is around $9 at the time.

What Is The Agent Score?

As a new agent, you start off with 85 points.

Field Agent Score

The formula to work out the agent score will be:

85 + Completed Jobs – (Accepted – Completed) = Agent Score


85 + Completed Jobs – Denied Jobs = Agent Score

The number of jobs accepted includes the jobs you have not done yet, but have accepted.

The number of jobs completed is the number of all the jobs that you have submitted and got approved for.

The number of jobs denied: This number represents the jobs you have attempted but was denied after submission.

The higher the score, the better. Your score is the qualifying factor for certain jobs. There may also be jobs available on the iPhone that is not available on Android. It is because Android phones come in a big variety of specs and sometimes a job requires a specific picture resolution that is easily determined on an iPhone.

Field Agent Payment – How Much Can I Earn?

Field Agent Cash OutField Agent pays anything from $6 to $12 per job.

Jobs are not that plenty full and depends on Field Agent’s clients requirements.

You can perhaps make $200 to $500 in a year. This is a bit of extra money on the side but not something you can do full time.

You can cash out at any time by clicking the hamburger menu and hitting Cash Out.

There is a ‘Contact Us’ form that you can fill in with your query on their website.

Being from South Africa, I had a bit of a struggle to set up my payment structure. It is because I tried to log in from the US website instead of locally.

The support was quick and guided me on the right path in no time.

The support is very good in my opinion.

What are Field Agent’s Pros?

  • It is a fantastic app. Everything you need to do is easily done through the app. Whether it is taking a photo, capturing video or audio and even submitting the job for approval.
  • Jobs are available worldwide.
  • It will be the easiest money you have ever made.
  • Payouts are quick and easy.
  • The app is a free download.

What are its cons

  • Jobs can be scares at times.
  • If you live outside urban areas, you may struggle to find a job. Most jobs are available within a city.

My Opinion & Verdict

Field Agent is probably one of the best applications I came across that you can make money with. It pays well for easy jobs unlike some online survey sites I have tried.

The only real negative for me as that there is not enough jobs available and to really benefit, you will need to stay in a big city.

All-in-all I will recommend the experience to anyone. Even if you just make $5 for an easy job just to say thet you too have made some money online.

  1. Thanks for the update,this is informative and educative article you post out here. This is my first time of hearing about Field Agent App and how easy it can be to make money from it 

    with the experience you share in the processing of using the app, I must say it is and easy app to use to make money and the fate that you can cash out at anytime on the app I also a good thing. I will download and check out the app later in the day

    1. Thank you for the comment, Ajibola!

      I am glad you find the review helpful and sure you will find it pretty cool especially if you live near a city.



  2. Lovely review. I really enjoy reading this post because It was fun all through. This is the first time I’m hearing about this field agent app. It is actually made for people like me who loves going out so much. Making money with my hobby is actually fun. But what kind of method can I use to withdraw in Nigeria using the Field Agent App?

    1. Hi Kehinde,

      Thank you for the comment. 

      As for payment: I am from South Africa so the only option available to me is a direct deposit to my bank account. This might be the same for you.

      The other payment method Field Agent use, is Dwolla but not available me and likely not Nigeria. You can read more about Dwolla here:

      You will therefore need a bank account and they will directly transfer it to your bank account.



  3. I will say that for sharing this and not being self centered hoarding this information.

    This will be another opportunity of making money and not just pressing phone with no aim or target. I really love this field agent app, having read through this post, I could see its fun and takes less time to performed any given task. This is an interesting opportunity to make extra income. 

    1. Hi Michael,

      I am so glad you can see the fun in this as did. It is like a little side hustle when you go to the shops and there is a job available.

      Hopefully you stay in an area that has got a lot of jobs. 



  4. Hi! This is very interesting. It seems fun to complete these tasks. And generating some money on our phone doesn’t seem a bad idea.

    Thank you for mentioning the fact that only one account is allowed per phone.

    Cool reading about your experience using the app. 🙂

    I’ll surely give this app a try. Thank you very much!

    1. Hi Henry,

      I greatly appreciate your input. 

      It is not much money-wise, but I must say I enjoyed the experience and I am sure you will too. As long as one does it in the passing and not make this a job, I think the fun factor will linger.

      All the best to you,


  5. The problem with these kinda task giving jobs is the scarcity as you said. I  am just hearing about this particular niche “field agent app”. I would love to try it out but I have been disappointed by others of its kind. Like take for example ” native”. You can check it out native dot io. The timing is never known and so you can’t plan. They will give you tasks and believe me they pay well enough to an extent but you might be caught on aware and have other things planned. I take this as passive income though but a very less likely to make you happy type.

    1. Hi Polycarp,

      This will certainly not be something to make a living from and not something I would go out of my way to complete. I simply complete a job if one is available in the area where I am busy doing shopping.

      But it is true – the further away you are from a big city the scarcer the jobs.

      Having said that, I have made a few bucks with Field Agent while doing my shopping without breaking a sweat.

      All the best,


  6. Wow! This is awesome. This post will be helpful to so many like me. There is nothing bad if one is having a side hustle especially when it’s fun. It’s not easy to earn online, and it can be frustrating as well. Thanks for this piece, I should bookmark this page right away.

    1. Hi Faftop,

      I appreciate your feedback.

      Earning a free cup of coffee every now and again feels good. A bit of fun and a few cents on the side – I am happy. 🙂

      I hope you will find it useful too.



  7. Your review is appreciated, i first heard about FA from my friend and his  experience with FA wasn’t  a  positive one. Field Agent doesn’t want to pay when a person is due. All the promises made are not real but fake. It’s a waste of time in working with FA. It may really take a lot of convincing to make me use this application 

    1. Hi Olalekan,

      Thank you for your input.

      Firstly I would like to say that this post is not to convince anybody in using Field Agent, but only my experience with Field Agent.

      Secondly: Field Agent does not have an affiliate program so I am not ‘selling’ this application or making money off it. 

      I am sorry about your friend’s experience. I do not experience the same. 

      Perhaps you should try it yourself and write about your own experience? (FA is free after all) That may be helpful to many others as well.

      I wish you all the best for the future.


      PS. We should remember that it is not all about money but sharing knowledge and experiences that may be useful to others.

  8. This is the first time that I find a detailed review about Feild Agent app. I had read some reviews from the app store before but most of them are negative.  Finally, I have found one that actually explains how it works.  Like you so elegantly explain, this is not some job that will make you a ton of money but it should make shopping around a little more fun and make a few extra bucks at the same time. 

    The downside that I just found out is that you have to be in a big city.  I live in a small town, so my chances of making “some” money with it are slim to none.  However, I will check it out and see if there is anything that a “field agent” could do in my part of the world.   Thanks for your very instructive review.

    1. Hi Dennis,

      Thank you for the comment! 

      I am glad I could give you some helpful information about Field Agent. Everything has its pros and cons. I simply love small towns – less hustle and bustle.

      I wish you all the best and happiness.



  9. You do a go job of outlining what it involves, how to get started and what kind of payout you might get.  I have been involved with trying to make money from surveys in the past and it was too much time for too little money and sometimes not even money, but gifts.  I wasn’t interested in gifts anyway.  This one I could recommend to some friends of mine. I am personally too busy right now and do not do much shopping or eating out.  Also, I wouldn’t want to get paid $9 after I have consumed a $10 meal in the process.  Thanks for the information.

    Best regards,


    1. Hi Joe,

      Thank you so much for the feedback. It is much appreciated. I agree. Surveys can be time consuming and not much fun.

      I am happy that you found the article helpful. It would be awesome if your friends are willing to give it a go and let us know how it went.

      All the best to you,


  10. Wow! This is the first time I’ve heard of a field agent. It’s very interesting to know about some of these surveys out there. You did a good job in explaining what’s involve and how one get’s paid. great Job once again from you.

  11. Good This is the first time I’ve heard of a field agent. It’s very interesting to know about some of these surveys out there
