Have done, wouldn't recommend.
Usually for a shop you'd only get $15ish or so - and you usually have to buy something there to do the shop, and you have to be extremely quick! Once you put down your preferences (regarding area) when a job comes up all people who have said they're available for that area get an email and the first to respond gets it. As I was working full time when I was doing the shopping and gmail was blocked at work, I only got a few jobs that no one wanted. This was before smart phones became popular though, so maybe you'll do better than I would.
Haven't done it for a couple years now, but I'm still on the mailing list. Here is an email giving details of a job so you can see the money we're talking about:
"There are 2 Noodlebox outlets in Brisbane International Airport to be completed one day next week, i.e. between Monday 12th and Sunday 18th November, any time the outlets are open, so from around 7am til 10 pm I think.
Payment is $15 per outlet + reimbursement of parking costs.
Purchase is any rice or noodlebox box, not a side.
If you are available, please let me know so I can send you the job offer email.
One of these outlets is airside, so we need to arrange for someone in security to escort you."
Clearly we're not talking big money here. I'm unsure how much a main from noodlebox costs but perhaps $10 - so you'd be making $20 at this visit after stuffing around getting security, actually going to the airport etc.
But if you really want to do it, the website I used to go through (which has always been prompt with payment and above board) is www.capeesh.com.au
Hope that helps.
