Missing Payments? I think this is important information
Based on this Loudman 's post and the subsequent Scorpie 's comment, I have found the following information about the other site at the Better Business Bureau (BBB) web page. The company is listed under the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern Coastal California chapter. I think it’s worth sharing the information I found about them, for the benefit of fellow writers that are still owed money by that site .
First of all the number of listed employees is 8 which might be one of the main reasons for their slow response to everything (requests, spam, payments, etc.), although it should not be an excuse for the lack of clear responses.
According to the information detailed at the BBB website, there have been only two complaints filled in the last 12 months against them as follows:
07/31/2014 Billing / Collection Issues 1
09/02/2014 Advertising / Sales Issues 1
This numbers are surprisingly low, which leads me to believe that probably people does not know how to leverage the Better Business Bureau.
In any event, if you think that you should fill a complaint against them because of the late or missing payments, this is probably the way to go. Hope this helps should you decide to this route to try you get your missing payments.
I want to clarify that I am not owed any payment, and there is only one outstanding payment, but it is still within the 30 day window. However, It is my belief that I should support fellow writers that follow the rules, provide value content but still they are owed payments, without no explanation or reason provided by that site . I think that is unprofessional.
