Field Scout: How do I get paid?

How much do I get paid per assignment?

For assignments that have green pins on the assignment map, we pay $75. For assignments that have yellow pins on the assignment map, we pay $100.

What do I need to do to get paid?

Once you've returned from your trip, keep an eye on your inbox for an email with the subject, " How to get paid for scouting __________," as this contains a list of your deliverables. Through this email, you'll be prompted to complete the following steps:

  1. Let us know if you'd recommend this property.
  2. Submit your review for this property.
  3. Upload your photos to all listings at the property.

When do payments go out?

Payments go out on the third Wednesday of every month. You will only get paid if you've completed everything listed above and the property you scouted has been marked as "verified" by the photo curation team. Once your assignment disappears from the top of your  Field Scout dashboard, you'll know it's been approved. Yippee!

I completed everything but my trip hasn't been approved

If you've completed everything and your assignment hasn't disappeared from the top of your Field Scout dashboard, our photo curation team:

  • Hasn't reviewed your trip yet
  • May want additional photos
  • May have questions about the photos or review you uploaded

We try to approve trips as quickly as possible, but it could take up to 2 days for our photo curation team to approve your trip or reach out to you with questions.

What if it's my first assignment?

If it’s your first Field Scout trip with Hipcamp, you’ll get an email prompting you to sign up as a contractor with us on Zenefits. This email will arrive a day or so before pay day. Once your setup is complete, we'll be alerted and can send out your payment.
