Reality Check

Anyone know how and how often they pay? I thought for sure they were by paypal for the end of the month following the month of the shop. They owe me quite a bit for June, so just anxiously waiting. I have only been paid for one shop I have ever done for them, that being in May. thanks!

I think that you need to check your ICA, and that they pay at the second month after the shop.

Oh I just answered my own question, 60 to 90 days after the shop. Seems hard to believe when others can send out payment so much quicker. They are also the ones with the pickiest feedback, however, I have had some good shops, there like 3 or 4 at $27 apiece. Currently they owe me $190, which would be immensely helpful to have now. Each shop is always questioned however. What are some other folks' experience with this MSP?
They are very nice to work for and are relatively easy going when scoring your report narratives. They do pay a bit slow, but are up front about it in their sign up. I look forward to working for them again real soon.

I have not done much for them, but what I have done has been scheduled through a scheduling firm, and the work has been done as a subcontract to an international MSC located elsewhere in the world.

I have never had any questions on my reports. I actually got an email from their editor telling me she had read either 50 or 100 of the reports for the client I had done, and had only given a couple of 10's, and mine was one. The scheduler told me that they are "very picky", so I do not know how that correlates with Arch's observation that they are easier than most.

They use PayPal but I don't remember if you have the option of check payments or not which I prefer because it's fun to get checks in the mail.
I do 3-5 shops per month for them. Some are the $27.00 Grocery/retail and the others are electronic and cars wash shops. I get a 10 rating from every shop except the grocery shops. I use a grammar checker for all of my shops. The grocery shop editor always cuts me to a 7 or 8 rating because of grammar and spelling. I guess that the Microsoft grammar and spell checker does not meet her standards.

As to pay, I get paid earlier than they promise by a couple of weeks. Since the out of pocket is so small with most of the shops from RC, I just keep them rolling over at the same rate each month. This makes me get a regular monthly payment from them.

My only complaint with them is the hard deadlines for the shopper, but the grocery shop editor does not look at the shop for 12 – 14 days after submission. Then, if any questions arise you get an immediate response nastygram. I feel that if I have a hard deadline on both ends, they should make a better effort to review the shops in a timelier manner.
I have to say I am always puzzled by companies who demand the report *now8 and then sit on the report for 10-30 days before an editor reads it.

Any current feedback on this company? They've posted a jewelry store shop in my area and before applying I was hoping to find out if it's worth it and if they are paying according to terms now.

They are fine, I did a couple shops and just applied for the jewelry store, I like them, they usually don't have much out here, but pay is good.
