You came into the forum and stunk up this thread all over a measly $10? Why don't you go sign up with some more MSCs and make some money instead of griping about $10. Geeze.

I got paid as well. Does anyone know if you can find a breakdown of your payments somewhere in your Marketforce account?
click on the down arrow after shopper id at the top then click on my account then click on payment details then it will give you four choices of what you want to see. Overview, details, history and Direct Deposit.

Yes. Log in and look at the top of the page and click on "my shops", then click the "View Assignment/Receipt Status page" link.

my guess would be the people that said they were paid by a different company but that is just a guess.

Well let's see, it's very simple to me. On there website it states in black and white if you READ it that pay would be between the 15th thru 20th. If you get it sooner, great, but to plan on the 15th thru the 20th to receive it. Now some got it within that range last month and some didn't. This month it's outside the range. Obviously, you could careless. However, it's an ICA and I expect them to uphold their agreement. You think they would let you do a shop the way you wanted to and not follow the guidelines. So, you determine if it's sporadic or not. I tend to think it is sporadic.
Every company I shop for has been late at least once. Most of them without telling shoppers. At least MFI had the decency to tell us payments would be late and when we would receive them.
Wasn't that just one person? Maybe they got paid from another company for other work and they were just mistaken.

The amount of money was disguised to protect the identity of the innocent!
Isn't that what you signed up for??

Not necessarily. They have been issues across the board with payment processors. Since the beginning of the year.
I've done work for NWLPC for several years and they have never been so much as a day late. They pay on the 20th of each month like clockwork - generally before 7:00AM. This month, for the first time ever, they paid the evening of the 21st. I was shocked - I figured that the owner had caught one of the many bugs going around and was simply out-of-commission for a few days. Nope: Apparently there was some sort of processing issue with their payment system.

I was impressed with one thing: The owner sent a very nice apology for the delay. He did not have to do that, but it was a nice touch. Kudos to Doug Rector.

Hard work builds character and homework is good for your soul.
Market Force has lost a huge amount of integrity as they have delayed the February 2019 payments into later March when they stated earlier in the year that "the payments will go out no later than the 15th-20th of each month." But for March 2019 the payments are now going out on March 22 and to be delivered to the direct deposits on March 25, 2019. So much for honesty Market Force.

MF has never been late with my payments. I have worked with them since 2006 and never had a problem. Some banks add the DDs to the accounts early. My payment came in Friday, March 22, right on time.
Tereceag, if you go to your payment history and click on the dste, you will see a list of the shops being paid.
Do you still do shops for them? They have cut their payments to mystery shoppers by at least in half for about two years now. It is not worth doing shops for them. It is just tooooooo much of a hassle, especially when you can not even understand what the person is trying to tell you. It certainly is not English.
I've never had any of my fees change after I've accepted. When I accept a shop, I always print out the CPI and it has never changed.

First, they have not cut their payments by half. In seeing the fees holding fairly steady.

Second, it's certainly English. Some of their schedulers speak with a strong accent, but they are perfectly understandable.

Racist much????
Payment was processed on day 20, and shoppers received it on the Day 22. It's not sporadic.

I'm fine with that. I'm paid and reimbursed a month after the shops, and I didn't have to chase payment.

Please do not be needlessly pulling the racist card. Our country has enough real tension we do not need people like you fanning the flames and creating problems.

Although you can tell their schedulers are foreign, they speak enough English to be understood. They have some kind of accent but I can understand them almost all the time, certainly not worth criticizing.

The bottom line for us is "Can these foreign schedulers authorize big juicy bonuses?" I say NO, not so much. It seems like Market Force has put a tight cap on the amounts the foreign schedulers can give us. If you want the big bonuses you need to be talking to the American schedulers.
