I received my first payment-minus the $10 bonus. I emailed them and if I don't get an answer, I'll call. I just a shop that they paid a $15 bonus for milage for me so I'll see if if they pay that on the next check.

Ooops. Me bad. I posted a new thread on Gapbuster feedback. Forgive me please. Anyway, I also was paid but without the promised bonus. I also have emailed them and have as yet to receive a response.

I did 2 shops for GB, and I received payment for the second shop on Friday. I emailed the company asking about payment for my first shop which includes the bonus as well as driving money because the shop was out of my way. It is the weekend so I expect that Monday I should here something from them. They seem reliable and I expect to receive the payment. They seem reliable.

Well, I did get a response that the bonuses, including the travel bonus, will be paid separately. They did not address at all the shortage of the payment--I received $2 more than the shop fee, but this was more than $5 short of the reimbursement. I wrote again to ask about it, and they haven't responded to that.

WOW! I just got a notice from PayPal that they sent me my $$ from the shop I did on Friday! I don't know if I was just lucky and it was the end of a pay cycle but I like that. And the full amount too.
Pretty cool

I was paid the full amount for my shops in one PayPal transaction, and then they sent the $10 bonus on a different date. I actually received the bonus first, then the payment for my shops. I never had to remind them about either payment either, they were automatically credited to my account.

I love this company!

Question...

On their site it says they pay for a completed shop within 24 hours of receiving the report, then, a couple paragraphs later they state that they pay the following month. Which is it?

Payment


When do I get paid for my evaluations?


We process all of our payments within 24 hours of receiving your results! Quality output from your end will ensure that you are paid within days of completing your work.

XEs are paid via their PayPal accounts. If you currently do not have a PayPal account you will need to open one. To open a PayPal account, or for more information on the PayPal process visit http://www.paypal.com

PayPal transfers payment via email.


Do I receive a payslip?
As a GAPbuster sub-contractor, you are not provided with a pay slip. Payment for each assignment is transferred electronically to your bank account in the month following successful completion of your assignment/s.


Am I reading this wrong?

Alison - They just changed from making the bank account transfers to using Pay Pal. My guess is that they just haven't yet updated that paragraph. Did you call or email them to ask? They don't always respond to emails very quickly - but they are awesome to chat with on the phone, and they have a toll-free number, even though we're calling them in Australia - remember that when you choose what time of day to call.

Check this out...I got a call the other day from GAPBUSTER and they had a FF shop that needed to be done. I accepted and checked out the paperwork and noticed that they were willing to pay $28.50 for the shop!! $9 fee+$8.50 rebursment+$11.00 bonus!! I about fell out of my chair. Unfortunatly, the store where this FF place was located had gone through a major expansion and the FF place was not in the building anymore but I still got paid The $10. And this is for a place that was only 5 miles from my house.
I wish all the MS companies paid like that!!

Gapbuster just sent me a tiny koala toy to help remind me of their great bonus program! You submit your reports on time and you are entered to win a weekly drawing of $100 plus a life size koala toy. I think it is so great that they sent these out and such a personal touch. I love Gapbuster, they are quickly becoming my favorite company!

GapBuster is great. I just got the little Kennie Koala the other day. Its so cute and really makes me feel appreciated! I second the fact that GapBuster USA Team Members are wonderful to speak with on the phone. I love getting calls from them. I hope that their shopper-friendly service leads to more clients for them! They deserve it. They are my favourite company to work for.

Actually it is a weekly drawing, as stated in the koala reminder I recieved which says "We're giving away a loveable life-sized stuffed Koala to one lucky XE every week." And the email I received states "Remember - we've still got four $100 cash giveaways for shoppers who pick up September evaluations. Go in the running by picking up an assignment today."

Ok, but my little koala says weekly. Either way it's still four each month.

Wow, I was just paid for my shop that I did on Monday!! The shop was very simple and the form easy to fill out. I think this has to be the fastest I had ever been paid on a shop. I will definitely work for them again.

Anyone get any emails about assignments for October? I noticed that they haven't posted any FF shops yet.


I was also wondering if anyone was having payment problems? This is a first for me. I have called and emailed and no response. I was just wondering if it was me or if others were experiencing this as well.

They don't have FF shops in my area, but I have accepted shops for another client. I haven't had any payment issues, once it was clarified when they send payments out...

I really like this company, and wish they had more shops in my area.

Payment issues? Heck no. This company pays the fastest out of the 50 or so that I've worked for.
With all the problems I've had with SI, I'll be doing the Gapbuster Version FF Shops from now on.

They have no shops in my area, but send me emails to go get them. They listed some companies that are in my immediate area, and abundant at that, but I have no log in information. I guess I'll just keep deleting the great job offers.
