While everybody want to get paid, I think there is a degree of difference between missing a payment that simply hurts, and a larger payment that could cripple someone if not paid. The amount just varies from person to person.
I'm owed a few thousand for something I never would have partaken in if not for it being shop, so I'm crossing my fingers that the money shows up in a few days. Would it break me if they stiffed me?...no, but it would sure sting a lot.
For anyone owed a few hundred dollars that would be broken by not receiving it, I have good news; There's probably a $1,200 check on the way to you, so that should cover you for a while...and many states are opening up their unemployment insurance to gig workers.
This thread yields the question: Do MSCs get paid in advance for a shop, or do they bill the client once the actual expenses are known? In other words, might some MSCs have sent us for early March shops for clients that are now unable to pay their bills including the bill for shops already completed?
People worried about a few hundred $$$ when full timers like me are owed thousands ($5k personally). SMDH
Your reimbursement is no more important than anyone else's just because you're full time. A couple of hundred dollars can have as much power to break some peoples finances as $5k could to you. I hope that you, and everyone else, gets their money back.
No offense but I think you have a poor understanding of the situation. For starters that's not reimbursement that's all shop fees.
Clear paid me today for my shop done 2/12.
I've been paid by Clear, Ipsos/Maritz, and Business Observations since mystery shopping basically ended. I also have an outstanding completed shop from HS Brands Intn'l, and I have no doubt they will pay. 2-3 months is a normal wait time for payments from them. I have not done shops for any other companies during this time.@Luna126 wrote:
