A personal shopper is similar
to an errand service, except that a personal shopper tends to cater to
executive-type clientelle who not only just not have the time to shop,
but want to leave the choosing of the items to someone with more experience
and/or better taste.
You can charge a per centage
of the actual dollar amount spent, or you can charge a flat rate per item,
or per trip or store. As you get repeat business, you may find that you
set different kinds of rates per client to adjust to his or her pickiness
Personal shopping can be expanded
into the online world. For instance, someone can hire you specifically
to hunt out certain collectibles online, or watch online auctions for
hom or her.
