MarketForce payments.

I get direct deposit from Market Force. They've never been late. I show a Direct Deposit from Friday 8/10. Nothing has shown up in my bank account. I talked to the bank, they don't show any pending deposits. Are they late?

"August Shopper Payments
August 9, 2018
Just a reminder about Shopper Payments...

Payments for shops completed and approved in one calendar month are made during the following month. Sho ppers who have signed up for Direct Deposit will receive their money first. Checks go out on or before the 20th of each month. Direct Deposits are posted up to a week before that.

However, please note that there is no specific payment date each month. Often it is affected by when a weekend falls or if there are any banking holidays around the time we send the payment to our bank. And, it is up to your bank as to whether you see your payment the following day or a couple of days later. Many credit unions seem to post these payments later.

Please remember that just because you have received your payment one month on the 9th or you think you always have it by the 12th or you believe that the payments have never gone beyond the 10th, the truth is that the payments will go out no later than the 15th-20th of each month. That is the date range you can count on and should budget for.

If you happen to get your payment before the 15th-20th, consider it a good thing! If you see your payment posted on your Payment History page, give it a day or two to see the money in your account as sometimes the payment will appear on your Payment History on the day it is sent to everyone’s bank. Sometimes you will receive your money in your account and not see it on the Payment History page. Again, give it a day or two to catch up!

Thank you for being a valued Market Force Shopper!"
I just hope it's not late like another company was this week. I should see the deposit on Monday. I just hoped to see it today, I really need the money.
Think of it as early if we receive it before the 20th. I love how they pay early every month.
I never, ever worry about payment from MF. If it arrives on the 10th, fine. If not, fine. It'll be there. Always. Like MF posted, better set your budget up to last through the 20th, because it may be the 20th before we are paid. However, it's ALWAYS been sooner, usually by the 15th the latest. Fine with me. They've NEVER reneged on payments.
Sometimes events happen outside of your control. Good thing I did all the shops I did, the money will get me by until Social Security comes in and I get more shops. Mystery shopping has kept me afloat.
John- I can totally understand that things come up and needing the money.. I usually also get it around the 10th if the month.. I think the latest I’ve gotten it is by the 12-13th. I haven’t received mine yet either but as others said they always pay and pay early. It will definitely come, hopefully soon for you!
I will say this is the first time in all the time I've been on DD with MF that MF showed the payment and it did not arrive at my bank the same day.

Interesting, I went back and compared dates on past payments. So far all my payments matched the deposit dates. I'm sure my money will be there on Monday or Tuesday. I had just hoped it would be there today.
Marketforce didn't post its DDs until Friday afternoon. I think it's a matter of late processing on their part. My bank, for instance, won't post a direct deposit unless it was initiated at the beginning of the business day. My TrendSource payment is almost always late because of this. I imagine the cash will be there on Monday.
@johnb974, my MF deposit showed up Saturday 8/11. I use Bank of America for my mystery shopping account and there are no fees or balance requirements if you get a direct deposit every month. Maybe you need to switch banks.

I do a couple of shops a month with mf but they made the deposit on Friday and it hit my account the same day. Last month with reimbursements was a little more than $60 and that's pretty average, under $100. Maybe if you do more work with them they pay later?
I also use BOA and my deposit has not posted yet. I have seen this several times, MF clearly explains that this happens. OP, understanding their payment policy why would you consider them to be paying late?

Edit: my deposit posted the morning of Monday, 8/13

As of Saturday, my payment was pending in my Chase account. It showed up on Friday on the MF site.

I do between $200 and $300 most months. Most of the time I get the deposit on the same day. I got a little worried because another company has been one week late in their payments, and because of some financial setbacks out of my control, I need the money quickly. I had just hoped to get the deposit on the same day. No big deal, it should be there tomorrow
I realize this topic is about MF payments, but some people have mentioned companies that reneg on their payments. Which companies are those?

I feel like a new shopper ALL the time. I've been shopping for 10 years, but it's been very "fly by night" with me. I started off doing about 40-50 shops a month. Then I went back to school for my master's degree; had a baby; and had family trials...didn't shop for 5-6 years.

In 2016, I shopped for about six months like crazy before we went to Disney World to make some spending cash for the trip

We went back to Disney World in April of 2018, and I shopped like crazy from about October of 2017 and then stopped in March.

But...I made quite a bundle for our trip, and we need the money now, so I've been trying to be more consistent.

Having said all that, and going off on a tangent....I have to say that I never, ever DIDN'T get paid. There was one company back in the day that made payments MONTHS after they should have, but they still paid...and added $20 to each shop when they did.

I just don't have the money at this point to shop for a company that might not pay.....so is there anyone to avoid?
@Jill_L, sounds like you're starting a new topic, but to answer your question, none that I am aware of.

I've received question after question after question from Alta360 and questions about things I was supposed to remember or know that weren't mentioned in the guidelines. It stalls the payment, at least, and makes me wonder if they are doing it because they don't want to pay for the info I gathered for them. I've never not been paid but some of the hotel and casino combos can take forever to pay.
