I was just curious if anyone had received their September payment from Strategic Reflections yet. I did my first shop with them in September and I try to not do multiple shops for a company until I've been paid the first time. Their website lists the 27th-30th of the following month for processing payments, so I was expecting mine this week. I have not received payment and haven't received any notice (email) that it has been sent.
I'm not complaining and not bashing them, just curious as to what to expect.
It is not quite late enough for them. They are consistantly 9 days late, like clockwork. They say they process checks the 30th, but it is always 9 days later that the checks were mailed email comes out. 9 days after their stated terms.
If you can't tell yes that pisses me off. If you are going to pay 9 days late always, just say it. I care much less that the payment is mailed on the 9th than I do that they tell me the 30th and then mail it 9 days late always.
There are reasons that a body stays in motion
At the moment only demons come to mind
In my experience they are always late like bgriffin said...and I don't do many shops for them because it does annoy me that they act like it's no big deal. Well, in my mind it is a big deal. If I am supposed to get my shop information to you by a deadline then you should also honor that deadline when you say you are going to pay. If you aren't going to pay like you say then just say that! It would help if they posted updates but I have never seen one form them. when I have called them about a shop payment status , I usually get a lackadaidsal response.
Sooo, I just don't do many shops for them. I''ll do one here and there if I think it seems easy enough and it doesn't require a lot of time and money.
I still haven't seen anything either. I'm glad I haven't taken on more shops with them yet.
I'm not saying that I won't, but I prefer to know what I'm getting into before letting an MSC rack up a lot of debt with me. As of now, only this MSC and Service Sleuth still owe me from September, and I was prepared for the wait with Service Sleuth.
I received my check in the mail on 11/16. I've noticed that usually with them the check date is almost a week before the date I receive it. I've always assumed it has something to do with their processing time.
Happily shopping the Pacific Northwest. Shopping since 2013 and editing since 2018
