Just thought I would share the response I got from the help desk about when direct deposits would be posted for shops completed I’m April. I just cut and pasted this from the email...
Please note that there is no set date for payments. Shoppers are paid once a month for all assignments performed in the previous month. Assignments performed in April are paid out on or around May 20th – 25th. Direct Deposits may be, but are not guaranteed to be posted a few days before that. Thank you and let us know if you need further assistance.
I don't undersand why every month MF is put on blast about their payments. In the decade plus that I've done work for them, I have only had one issue with a missing payment and one late payment (a month or so ago) and they always put out a message that it is going to be late. It is nice to get paid early, but it doesn't mean that when they pay on time that they are late. You might like what they pay, how they pay or when, but it's all out there in the open and you can either decide to do work for them or not. It's up to you.
Same here...paid today for all my April shops. It was nice when MF paid around the 12th-15th. Not a big deal that they pay between the 15th-20th. Doesn't mean they have cash flow issues...maybe they realized interest for another few days was more important

i personally don’t think MF is having cash flow problems. I have seen a few contracts they have with some of the major burger chains and they make a significant amount not only per shop, but per set of shops. I can only imagine that they have similar contracts with other companies.
That being said, my guess is that they switched payment vendors or payment software. Some of the new programs run the data and provide companies the most optimal time to clear the payable account. They could also stagger their payments across a time frame.
That being said, I got paid on 5/20 for my shops. I have been shopping for MF for about 5 years with no complaints about timeliness of pay.
Just because they make a lot of money per client, it doesn't mean they are a well run company. There are plenty of people and companies who make a lot of money, yet can't keep their heads above water due to bad decisions. A new payment vendor does not explain the reduction of shops and declining regular shoppers normal bonuses.
Hello, I completed 2 shops for Market Force on May 10th. Both shops were approved and had been sitting in the My Shops area since then. Today I went to check the status and I do not see anything at all. No sign of any shops being done, nothing in the payment history or shops history. I also checked to see if anything was pending in my bank account and nothing is pending. Has this happened to anyone else? I hope they are paying me for my shops.
Not to worry. Did you check the link “view assignment/status page” link under the my assignments tab? You should see your completed shops there. The link is on the top of the “my shops” page. May shops will be paid in June toward the end of the month. Direct deposits a few days earlier than checks.
