WeGoLook.com Review – Get Paid For Running Errands & Looking.

Links & ads you may click on this blog pay the bills & keep this site free for you. Thanks for supporting!

Chances are you've run a couple of errands in your day. If you're a stay at home parent you probably do this regularly after dropping off the kids. Or if you're really brave you bring them along with you. Errands are just part of life. They aren't always fun. Well imagine if you could get paid for running errands for others while running your own? Would they be more appealing to you? Well you can!

What is WeGoLook.com?

Every year millions of people make purchases online and unfortunately not all of them end up being happy with them. Too often people pay for products that are either defective, damaged, fake or aren't anything near what was described by the seller. Sure you can go online and write up negative reviews and complain to a consumer protection agency. But most of that time that doesn't help recover the money lost or the frustration you feel.

Enter WeGoLook.com. They're the folks that prevents this from happening in the first place. To verify an item, property, or a person is everything being claimed by a seller, WeGoLook sends out a ‘Looker" on behalf of a buyer. You can see a nice visual explanation of how this all works by clicking here.

What does a Looker do?

Here's how it's described on the site:

"In general, you will be provided the location of the item or property involved and contact information for the seller or owner, who will be expecting a call from you. You will quickly make contact and arrange to meet. Once there, you will take a few digital pictures, and answer a few simple questions off a checklist. You will then log on to your personal dashboard on our website, upload the pictures, and complete a short report. "

Examples of Looker jobs:

Auto Purchases

Recently I was in the market for a used car. Unfortunately I'm limited to my immediate Tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. This was very frustrating because I saw the used car I wanted at better prices in other states further away from me. Driving all over the country wouldn't be a good use of my time or money. But I could have gone to WeGoLook.com and hired a looker in some of those other states to check out the condition of the car I wanted. If the report came back positive then I would have called the out of state dealer and made an offer. This could have literally saved me thousands of dollars. I would get the car I want with the confidence that it's not a lemon. The looker would have made some money just for running this near by errand. Everyone wins.

Vacation Home Rentals

My family and I love to travel but let's face it, hotels can be very expensive. I've always wanted to rent a vacation home but I'm a bit sketchy of doing it without seeing it. Yeah pictures on the websites are cool. But we know how deceptive that can be. It's like the pictures of your friends and family you see on Facebook. Folks only pick the ones that make them look better than they are. LOL Well I could easily hire a looker in the prospective vacation location to go and check out the rental property. They would just report back to me via the WeGoLook.com website what they find. If it's all good then I've just saved myself tons of money on a hotel. In turn the looker made some money for just checking out a home they probably pass by all the time when running errands. Again everyone wins!

So that's just a few examples of Looker jobs. Others include: Animal, Boats, Fashion, Antiques, Furniture, Electronics, and more. One that caught my eye was Dating Look Jobs. This alludes to my Facebook picture statement above. Someone you've been chatting with online claims they look like Brad Pitt or Denzel Washington. Their pictures seem to verify this. But you suspect they're a Photoshop expert. You can hire a Dating Looker to check them out. Crazy huh? Or is it?

How do I know when jobs are available in my area?

When new orders (jobs) are placed within your area as defined by the ZIP codes you have provided us, you, along with others who work in the same area, may receive an email notifying you that new assignments may be available. You may then, login to your dashboard on the website at wegolook.com and view unassigned orders. The assignment will be given to the first Looker® to accept it in this manner. By the way you're not required to accept the jobs that may be in your area!

How much do Lookers make?

As of this review the lookers are paid $25 per assignment via Paypal or check. I believe the payment is made within 30 days. I couldn't find anything on the site that verifies the exact time frame.

Do you need to have experience?

Nope that's the great thing about this opportunity. If you've ever run some of your own errands you have the experience you need. Even if you've never run an errand in your life, you can still do this. You just need to be able to make some basic observations.

Is this opportunity international?

It seems to be limited to the United States at the moment. But I could be wrong and this may change as the company grows. Don't fret, we got love for you and have an international section here.

How do I sign up?

You can sign up by clicking here. There are NO out of pocket sign up fees. However you must be 21 or older to be considered for work.

More questions?

Dang, you're relentless with your curiosity. No worries, feel free to click here to get the answers.

So this sounds like a pretty sweet opportunity. But is it really? Every company has some bad points so let's discuss a few that I found. They may not be deal breakers but just things you should know.


1. You're an independent contractor not an employee which means you're responsible for paying your taxes on your own. For some people this is a turn off. But most work at home opportunities are like this. Being an independent contractor has pros and cons. You can read more about them by clicking here.

2. Background checks are required for U.S. Based lookers. This shouldn't be a concern for most people. But if you've done some dirt in the past or other things recently aren't up to snuff, you may not qualify to work for this company. By the way, in order to run your background check they'll need your social security number. This may give people pause even though WeGoLook is listed with the Better Business Bureau in good standing. Furthermore the Information on their sign up form is transmitted securely using SSL and the industry standard 1024 bit encryption. Even with all this it may still scare off some people.

3. It's not a work at home opportunity. This website is about making money while you're at home running around half naked. This opportunity actually requires you to leave your home which may not be ideal for some.

4. Aside from missing out on being paid to be in your draws. You're also probably burning gas and throwing miles on your car. You really have to do the math and make sure it adds up and is worth your time. If you end up burning more gas than the money you made, then this isn't a good option for you.

5. Safety is something to consider. I would hate to get an assignment in a sketchy part of town or meeting up with some shady looking seller. But I'm a grown ass man so something bad is less likely to happen to me. But I think I'd be more concerned if it were my wife out on certain looking assignments. So that's something to consider as well.

6. Let's say none of the other cons I've mentioned bother you. The one that may get you is availability. The looker opportunity availability will depend on your location and the amount of other lookers that may be in your area. So even though you may be ready to work. There may not be enough work for you.

So is WeGoLook.com, ( We Go Look) a Scam or Legitimate?

Judging by what I've read online and their positive BBB listing, We Go Look appears to be a legitimate opportunity. I'll probably give it a shot now that I'm getting a used car and don't have to worry about lease mileage overages. You know my philosophy, every little bit adds up. My wife runs a lot of errands so I may encourage her to do this as well. At the very least it may help pay for all that gas she uses on play dates, shopping and whatever other "errands" she makes up. LOL

What are your thoughts about this? Does it sound appealing? Have you tried this opportunity? Let me know below. I know some of you may not like the idea of this opportunity or leaving your home to make money. I totally feel you. So click here for work from home only options.

  1. I signed up in Feb and they called me a couple of weeks ago(Oct). I live in rural Missouri in the Ozarks, a small mountain range, and I’m right up against a National Forest. Two out of three Looks have me going through the forest which is extreme hills and curves. Google maps always underestimates the driving time. It’s all 55 mph but you better have a Porsche or something to do that.

    They’re down to $12.00 to start for a Look.

    They just sent me one that’s 137 miles round trip. It’s for vehicle pics. My math is as follows;
    $18.00 and (137 miles = 3 hours round trip plus time on site)
    That works out to 4 hours for $18.00($4.50/hr) minus fuel for the 137 mile round trip ($2.00-3.50 per hour)

    Oh, and this one started out at $12.00 but they up the ante when no one accepts a Look.

    They had it at approx 41 miles one way but googly maps says 68.3 miles and they’re all like that. Almost double what they estimate. Maybe it’s as the crow flies but I ain’t no crow.

    I currently have three potential Looks and if I could arrange them all in one shot, (which is doubtful considering there’s three other parties involved) the best I come up with is;

    (total pay $83.00)

    3 hours, 23 minutes with no traffic and not including stops. Two of these are for taking pics of automobiles which would probably add 1 hour each.

    It would probably be 6 hours total, 167 miles for $83, minus fuel(approx $20) and related automotive expenses(wear and tear, insurance, maintenance), minus approx 25% income tax when forms w-9 – 1099 are applied. When it’s all said and done, I’d probably make about $5-6.00 per hour. Maybe less.

    My fuel would actually be higher, $25-30 because I drive a full size pickup truck with a V8 engine but that’s not their fault so I estimated it a little lower.

    I’ve actually been assigned one look and they did that when I was one the phone getting fully registered. “Would you consider doing something like that?” BOOM, signed up with that Look assigned to me.

    That one’s $40 because they’ve been unable to get it done for over a month.(I’m guessing the last person in the area gave up) Even that one wouldn’t pay all that well. 82 miles round trip plus pic taking time 3ish hours. Call it half a day for $40 minus 4-5 gallons of gasoline and income tax, wear and tear, auto insurance, maintenance etc.

    $2 to $6 per hour for me to drive my own vehicle? I hear Uber drivers do that bad sometimes too.

    If you get there and the other party is a no show?

  2. I’ve worked for We Go Look for a little over 2 years. When I first went to work, the payment for a look was $25.00 minimum. A few paid a little more. Since then, they’ve lowered to payments to $20.00. They said the app they use made it easier and faster to do a report. At $25.00 it was hard to make any money, considering (Your time, wear and tear on vehicle, insurance, taxes, expense and gas and oil) As an example, I just saw a look in my area for $20.00 and the look was 40 miles away. In other words, the company was asking the looker to drive 40 miles, do a look and return home. That’s 80 miles for $20.00, and it’s likely you had to buy lunch. That’s an insult to a looker. There’s no way anyone can make any money at that rate. I told the company I couldn’t drive out of my garage for $20.00, but it didn’t make any difference, they would find someone that hadn’t calculated the costs. Needless to say, I’ve not done any looks in a while. I enjoy the looks and meeting and talking to new people, and prided myself on being a good ambassador for the company. But, I’m sorry I just can’t finance the company.

  3. I signed up for Wegolook as one of their contract lookers. I live in the heart of Los Angeles. Right near the borders of West LA, Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Culver City. After 2 weeks, there are still no jobs available in my area. Don’t assume that they have any work available for you no matter how large your metro area is.

  4. Hi,
    I appreciate the review sir. I am concerned because I’m a felon and looking for work. You mentioned they do a back ground check which always makes my heart beat go up. I’m not a violent nor a drug felon and it’s been five years but will I be ineligible do you think?

    • Hey Andrea,

      First I applaud you for trying to get back on the right track. We all make mistakes. Unfortunately society and companies don’t always see it like that. So I’m not sure if you would qualify for this. But the best thing to do is reach out to them and see what they have to say.

      Keep me posted. Eddy

  5. Live in my RV full time spend 8 months per year in Prescott, Arizona zip code 86303 in the summer and travel southern AZ and CA as a snow bird each winter in my RV… I am in need extra in come…

  6. I’ve been a “looker” for about 2 years, and have no real complaints. The money doesn’t pay my bills, but I’m retired and enjoy getting out once in a while to do something productive and put a few extra bucks in my pocket. I’ve never had a problem with contacting the office when I needed to, and usually get paid within 2 or 3 weeks. It’s a little annoying to have someone “beat me to it” when I respond to a potential assignment as soon as I receive it, but I learned a long time ago in business that “you can’t win ’em all.” No problem.

  7. Hi Eddy!

    Thanks for the review!

    I’ve received a few offers I couldn’t take due to an accident. They were fairly persistent, but I apologized and asked them to keep me in mind for future assignments. They didn’t respond. That’s no biggie, I still get offers every couple of months.

    I received a “5 minute” interview request. The confirmation specified no more than 30 minutes. I called 5 minutes prior…no problems checking in…

    Sooo…I listened to an adorable song about the frustrations of being on hold loop over and over and over and over again for 45 MINUTES.

    I finally just hung up. Like you, before signing up, I found few complaints, and only one that was serious {failure to pay or notify pics were inadequate}. However, keeping a potential looker on hold well past the total time allotted is a HUGE RED FLAG.

    This type of work normally has a very low pay:time/labor ratio. They demonstrated an utter lack of respect for my time. I’d have been fine with it if a reasonably apologetic human being had taken 10 seconds to acknowledge the call. Without at least that much, I can’t find a way to con myself into thinking it will improve after the initial process. It’s not a wonder they seem to have a new territory coordinator every time I receive a job offer.

  8. I have been taking assignment from them since September 2015. No issues except slow payment. The manual checks seem to take a long time.

    I have since signed up for ACH around the first of November (which they have to send you the form). Payments have arrived fairly consistently and I get an email with the assignments the ACH / Direct Deposit is paying for which helps with record keeping.

    I am now outstanding $170 that was supposedly paid via check mailed 11/9. I just contacted accounting and they advised the policy is to wait 45 days. In my opinion that is way too long for a company policy to pay it’s debt to a contractor especially when their site advises that payment will be within 14 days of submission of assignment. So I kicked up a notch and asked to speak with leadership…. Will let you know what happens

    Feeling a little apprehensive

    • Hey Antoinette,

      Thanks for sharing your experience and this update.
      As an affiliate marketer, I often have to wait 30-45 days to be compensated. Depending on some companies it may actually be more. It’s a way for them to ensure that everything is good on their end, no refunds, or other issues. So I don’t think its anything shady on their end. But I guess time will tell. Keep me posted either way.

  9. Hey Eddy –

    Thanks for the info! My friend actually told me about wegolook.com, so we both signed up. I was approved and had 4 assignments shoot to me via email; 2 I missed, 2 I got. I should mention I also do mystery shops, which require a LOT of reporting, narrative, etc. When the two are compared, wegolook is SO much easier…OH.MY.GOSH! AND, It sometimes takes WEEKS to get paid on a mystery shop, whereas wegolook pays every Friday, for any work done the prior week. Just did my first one 2 weeks ago…and they paid me on time on Friday, as promised. The staff have all been very professional and friendly…another plus! The ONLY downfall is, as someone else mentioned: not enough jobs. I’d take 4 of these a day easy, if they’d send them to me. Blows away mystery shopping! Thanks for your nice site.

  10. this would be a pretty good opportunity at 50-60 dollars per assignment BUT “Womens World” magazine article indicates that NOT your web site which indicates 25 dollars per assignment which barely pays the car expense and IRS. Not too happy with Womens world right now!

    • Gary, I don’t know anything about their article. But at the time of the review is the rate I reported. That said even at $25 per assignment, depending on where it is and how long it takes it may be worth it for some people. Everyone has different needs.

  11. I have worked for Wr go look. Its actually pretty good. It gives me experience in auto damage photo taking and filing out the report. Its legitimate, no fee to pay at all.

  12. I’ve been a member here for like a year, never get one job… by the time I get them in my inbox, they have been taken. Even if I click when they come in right away. Phoenix must not have all that many jobs, or I’m doing something wrong….

  13. I just completed my 6th look with this company, the reps in the call center are awesome and I was paid in a timely manner Very happy with WEGOLOOK, Please give them a try

  14. Wow, there are cool ideas for businesses coming out every day. I saw an article the other day about someone was starting a paid wingman business, which sounds kind of like the dating looker you mentioned.

    I’ll definitely check this out for future purchase. When I was looking for motorcycles I had the same problem of being limited to a very small area on Craigslist! BTW, nice site; I’m also a WA member.

    • Hey Nathaniell! I totally agree with you. Thank goodness for the internet because it has lead to a lot of creative business opportunities. I’m happy to hear you’re a member of WA. Definitely hit me up over there. Thanks for chiming in!

  15. Does anyone know about the online W9 form they have you fill out? I ask because I don’t see anywhere to put the number of dependents like paper W9 forms have. I also need to ask if anyone has had any experience in doing this because the online W9 form has a couple of spelling errors, and as we know, that can be a sign of a scam. Not saying this is, but I am just being cautious.

    • A W9 is an IRS form. It varies from your regular W4 form because it is specifically for individual contractors, not employees. There’s no where to put dependents on it because you will not be having taxes or withholding taken out of your pay. This form is strictly to get your SSN and address, so that the company can send you a required 1099 form (instead of a W-2) at the end of the year if you were paid more than $600.

  16. Their online sign up form asks for your social security number. With the increase in identity thief, disclosing a social security online is very risky business.

    • Hey Sam,

      I understand your concern but the site is encrypted like what you would find with your bank. Nothing is hack proof. Even government sites and big businesses site get hacked.

      But the risk of identity theft is everywhere including much of the online banking folks do. I personally have subscribed to a service that monitors this to give me peace of mind because the threat is everywhere from online sites to people sifting through garbage or mailbox. You can do things to decrease the likelihood but nothing is 100 proof.

      I’ve personally submitted my personal information on quite a few legitimate opportunities and never had any issues and I’ve been doing this for years. But if it’s a concern you can avoid this company. And that’s probably going to mean a lot of other work at home companies that actually play by the rules and submit your earnings to the government.

      Maybe you can email them and see if they accept a fax of the information if you do want to work with them.

      I just want to point out the following statement they’ve listed in regards to why they need the social security number:

      “This information is required so that we may perform a background check on you. All lookers are required to submit to a background check prior to performing jobs for us.

      Information on this form is transmitted securely using SSL and the industry standard 1024 bit encryption. Your information will be kept completely confidential.”

      Either way I understand your concern and will list that as a con in the review. I’ve seen when companies request this type of information after you’ve earned a certain amount. So I’m not sure why they can’t do the same thing.

      Thanks for chiming in.

  17. As always Eddy, you’re right on point with giving people the good, bad and ugly of any opportunity you come across and that’s why you deserve the trust and respect of all of us that have been reading you for years.

    If you are a person new to this site, you have stumbled upon a place on the web that will give you what is known as REAL.

    Great column as always Eddy

    • My bad “J”.
      I was writing this article late at night and apparently my common sense fell asleep on me. lol I’ve added the sign up link and updated the article with some other information that I missed in my half asleep condition. lol

    • I am also doing all my work at night. lol
      You can add me on g+ to c what i am doing.
      Keep on the good work.
