Around 90 days. My most recent job that has been paid was in early June that was paid in late August. Plan on 90 and usually you will be pleasantly surprised that they are 'a little earlier than expected'.
Thanks--I wish they paid faster. It was a job where I would have to put some money out--I think I will pass. I just about have gotten to the point if a MSC can't pay within 60 days.I really don't want to work for them.
I do a shop that I have to pay out about 7X what the fee is for the shop. Because it is a useful reimbursement, I am willing to wait. If I didn't do the shop I would need the item anyway, though it would cost me less not on a shop. So I don't mind too much the wait, though it certainly keeps them from being on my 'favorite companies' list.
I have gotten paid in a little over 60 days and the last timeI didn't I e-mailed them and they got back to me and said it would be next week and it was.
I am still waiting for late June pay from them....I find 90 + days to be their time, and it is too late, as all shops for them are reimbursement, I've written about them and payment before. I'd pass and will from now on. I have never written, but think I will today.

Live consciously....
I shop for Service Sleuth and as many of my fellow shoppers have stated, Service Sleuth takes about 90 days to pay. It is almost a surprise that I get a check in the mail from an assignment that I had forgotten.
I believe what happens is the philosophy of "when we get paid, you get paid.l
I did an audit for a wireless carrier. It was easy and I enjoyed it. Pictures were uploaded into the report, which also were required to be uploaded again to the partner site. The partner site was glitchy, requiring pictures which were not required. My shop is in limbo, my status is incomplete, while waiting for the de-glitch. This is a very slow paying MSP anyway, and I'm watching the days go by without a fix, figuring my payment will be slower than slow.

I haven't heard anything, except wait for resolution, which was days ago. Just wondering if anyone else shares my pain with this shop.
As I tell others, some MSC's pay better than other MSC's. Some take longer to pay than others. I still believe that MSC's pay shoppers after the MSC gets paid. Also, smaller MSC's. May not have the cash flow.
My recommendation is that there are many, many MSC's out there. If you are dissatisfied with one, move onto another one... You're usually only out a couple hours of your time and a few dollars. Nothing to lose sleep over.

I did a shop for them on 7/5 and got paid for it today, however I did another shop on 7/11 and didn't get paid for that one. I e-mailed them and asked abouit not paying both at the same time. Waiting for an answer. If you need to contact them about payments here is the address; lmalkowski@servicesleuth.com

I understand and accept their payment terms. My question was about a specific shop, the audit of a wireless carrier, and the glitch with uploading photos. Just wondering if anyone had heard news from SS on this shop other than wait.

I did one on 7/3 and haven't been paid for it yet.
Their published payment terms: "Payments are submitted to PayPal approximately 60 days after the last day of the month in which the shop was completed. Please note that it then takes PayPal up to 5 business days to process this transaction and clear the money for disbursement."

That's a pretty long time.
