Mintel Payment One Day Late

4/15 was the scheduled payment date. None of my shops are paid yet. I am curious rather than worried. Mintel usually pays like clockwork.

Is Mintel late paying anyone else? Thanks.

My scheduler got back to me. It was a one-off mistake. I will be paid at the end of the month.
Glad to hear. Now Market Force needs to pay up.
One day... BFD. If every MSC was only one day late, I'd be jumping with joy over the cashflow.
How rude.

When an MSC usually pays like clockwork (twice a month), and when the amount involved is hundreds of dollars, is a shopper supposed to say nothing and not even allowed to wonder what's going on?

MSing is not a job, it is a business. It is a fact of business that on occasion customers become past due. When that happens one can certainly wonder as to why, but to publicly inquire - mentioning the customer's name when doing so - after only one day is bad form: it is rude (and not on my part).

If a one day slow payment of a few hundred dollars is too much for your business to tolerate, perhaps you would be well advised to seek more customers.

Saving the complaining about slow payments for when you have customers who show real tardiness in payment. Complain when they go 30, 60, 90 days past due. But not for a mere single day.
Do you have trouble with reading comprehension or is something else going on?

Responding to someone's post/thread with "BFD" was rude. The more you deny it, the more foolish you appear.

Kindly point to where I complained or stated I could not handle a late payment of hundreds of dollars for a couple of weeks.

In my OP, I specifically stated I was curious instead of worried and I asked if other shoppers were experiencing the same thing. When the scheduler got back to me and promised payment, I updated the thread promptly and did not complain (to the scheduler or on this forum) that the scheduler did not correct the mistake right away. I was fine waiting another two weeks.

Please note that I never named the scheduler.

There are numerous threads on this forum where other shoppers named MSCs that missed their scheduled payment dates or when direct deposits did not get credited as expected (even when the MSCs in question were not technically late). Sometimes, posts are created on the same day as the scheduled/expected date. AFAIK, no one else has deemed it appropriate to respond to those posts with "BFD."

One day.... even direct deposits from huge corporations can run one day late. There is no way the amount you get from Mintel will make or break a mortgage payment etc. breathe folks breathe.
