I did my very first job for Confero in September and believe I should have been paid by now. I'm getting a little concerned, although it IS just one shop.

I don't believe I get job postings for this company. I am registered on their Sassie site too. I know they shop a particular client right up the street from me (a birdie told me), so I want to be offered the shop also.

I think some of their jobs are offered to Gold shoppers only.

It sounds as if this MS company does not pay in a timely manner. In addition, it appears from all the feedback here, they don't even answer your emails. Since there are so many out there that do pay, on time, and do respond to your emails...why is anyone wasting their precious time with them?

UPDATE: Today I got a paypal notice that my September job was paid. I'm not sure where I stand yet on Confero. We'll see if my October assignment is paid on time.

I would wager a good amount that there are far more of us who have had great experiences with Confero, the schedulers and the amount of pay from most of their shops. I love the military shops and have always been paid on schedule or only 1-2 days off which I think only happened once. So I'll be more than to continue to get a ROI for my precious time when it comes to Confero!

ps- all Sept shops, $$$ in the bank.

No money for September here, either, though it is finally listed as "posted..."

The people who are listing that they haven't been paid- Have you emailed the company? I know Courtney is no longer there but SOMEONE is checking that email account I am sure... I emailed one day and the next day had a payment in PayPal.. apparently Courtney is no longer with the company and was let go because she wasn't doing her job... Now imagine if that was YOUR company... And you ahd to figure out what had been done and what hadn't been done, who had or hadn't been paid, etc etc... Email them, give them a few days to get your balance paid...

But hey.. that is just my

I've done 20 shops for Confero, with a wide variety of clients. My observation is that Confero pays when the client pays them. I may be incorrect about this, but that's what it seems like. Some shops have been paid in 60 days; others were paid in two weeks. Doesn't much matter to me one way or another; it's not enough money to hyperventilate over.

I'll accept more work from Confero. They have been good for me to work with.

I wanted to update on payments. I e-mailed Confero twice. First time went to Courtneys address, but since she is not there I sent a second to a general e-mail address last night. Got payment today. I say things are getting better.

I see that people just got paid for the September shops, so has anyone started receiving payment for their October shops? I have one that has been pending for a few days now, but no payment yet.

I got my payment for October shops today. I think when you get it depends upon what time of month you do your first shop. Due to Paypal restrictions, they probably cannot process all payments on the same day.

Got my payment too!

I also had given them until the end of the month because of the holiday.
I was once told by a scheduler that payments via Paypal are often held up when the money doesn't quickly clear Paypal. i.e. It can take up to 10 days for their payment to clear before it can begin to be dispersed. With a holiday, it was probably just delayed.

It's now Christmas Eve (on the East coast) and I still have not been paid for my October shops!
