I think you'll find that there are still experienced shoppers who do shop for MF, me being one of them. However, we are much more cautious at which shops we will accept because the fees are generally lower. Many times we do as you are doing, make the offer and see what happens. Yes, the easy reports do weigh in consideration of whether or not their shops are taken. Newbies generally take their shops at face value, even if they are more involved than the pay is worth.

I do shops for them every month. I do grocery shops, call/online shops,
rental shops and sometimes casual burger shops.

I haven't done the burger shops because of my diet, but they are sounding good again!

I still do some occasional shops for them. One of the burger shops is in the same shopping strip as my job so it gives me a chance for a free lunch. That one is a lot easier than it used to be since I don't have to remember to look at the signs. I do dislike having to check the restroom. The one near my work looks atrocious, but it's been a couple of months so hopefully it won't look as bad the next time I try it out.

Nope I have not received Decembers payment from them yet. Highly unusual for MF. I can safely say they have never been this late.

Nope I have not received Decembers payment. First time MF has been late in paying me. I checked their payment guidelines and this would start to fall into late for them.

For anyone that does the discount chain of grocery stores...this chain has been doing remodels so if you take a shop >>> they may not be open. The account manager knows nothing about this, Believe me....

What is going on with Marketforce payments. They payed late in February and are paying late again in March. They have changed their payment policy on the 16th of this month. WTH Their policy has always been that they pay between the 15th and 20th of the month, but the actual payment posted right around the 10th of the month. Now all of a sudden they are paying after the 20th. For March you DD will not deposit to your account until the 25th. I don't understand how you want me to be so punctual with my work, but you can pay me whenever.

Yes, this is certainly a bad sign for Market Force. For years their web site has stated that direct deposit payments would be received between the 15th and 20th of the next month. Most months they paid early. This year I've received my payments on January 18, February 21 and they've stated that payments for March won't be received until the 25th.

Yet their web site still says that they pay no later than the 20th. It does not bode well that they are violating our agreement and give no explanation.

So I've stopped signing up for shops and will see how the next few months shake out. Better to miss out on $40 in fees than get stiffed for $180 in reimbursements!
