This is very disappointing. I've had some payments come late or after I email her, but I have yet to not receive payment at all. I love these assignments, so I hope everything is okay with Katy and her company.
Katy has a new client, a pizza chain that has been shopped for years (and is still showing up on the old MSC's board). It seems to be just some regions -- perhaps a franchisee? One hopes that the money from this client wlll allow her to pay back the shoppers who have so far been stiffed on her Asian restaurant shops.
I just did my usual restaurant with a 40.00 bonus, so no, she's not out of money. I emailed and asked if I could do this although I am only allowed to do one every other month, she said go ahead with her response coming the next day...it is the holidays and I hope to get paid in a timely manner. We did not get the pizza job here.
I have not been paid from a shop I did in July. I have contacted katy by email multiple times. I left multiple voice messages and even messaged her through Facebook. It's like she has completely disappeared. This is very disconcerting. The website is still showing jobs available.
I just got paid for June and July shops after months of ignored emails. Outages in NoCal were used as an excuse. I am also now current with my shop payments. I was even asked if a missing bonus I'd referenced was for one shop or for three! (It was just for one.) Ironically the payment schedule ended up being more or less equal to some HS Brands shops I did in July as well, but of course those came without any need to follow up.
