Market Force pays for the entire previous month. All shops done in October should pay on the next payment date, probably within the next week. They used to pay around the 8th-10th of the month but they now pay between the 18th and 25th for direct deposit. If you get a check in the mail, it takes longer. In the 12 years I've worked with them, I've always been paid correctly with only one payment issue. A shop I did on the first day of the month was approved and I saw it in my completed shops list. Later in the month, the shop disappeared from the list before the other shops. Shops do usually disappear from your completed shops list when they are processed for payment. I contacted Help Desk and was told the shop showed approved and they weren't sure why it wasn't showing up in my completed shops list. On payment day, I was paid for my other shops but not that one. I emailed Help Desk and got a pretty quick, very nice and apologetic email back and I got a second direct deposit immediately for that shop.
