Payment Received from B-News Site

I know that there are many who have been awaiting payments from another site, especially from the end of June and first part of July time frame. I was one of them.

I say "was," because I have been paid. In fact, I was paid six days ago, but did not know about it.

Typically, when I receive a payment through Paypal, I am notified via email. Such was not the case this time, so I continued to write to them periodically, some which they answered and some they did not.

I wrote on September 1st, asking for an estimated pay date. It would have been good customer service for them to respond that "payment was in the mail," as they made the payment the following day.

All totaled, I wrote them 10 times in nine weeks. I received five responses. I did acknowledge their response informing me that their records showed payment on the 2nd. I thanked them for informing me of the deposit.

I hope that my August 22nd redemption will be seamless, as were 19 other payments, before the fiasco with my 20th.

Grats on getting paid. Good for you.

You seem to be luckier than most then judging by the complaints..

Ellis I hardly call 63 days "lucky," but I do consider myself fortunate. Truth be told, I did not expect it. I also see that many more are finally getting their payments from that time frame. As far as judging by anyone's complaints, since someone is always complaining about something, I would be in dire straits to want to continue waking up each day, if I listened to what some love to do (complain)! emoticon :winking:

Thanks. I hope for all the same resolution.

That was a first for me. I know now to check. Thanks for sharing your experience. Makes me realize that it's something that can happen.

Oh, shoot--I just emailed them this morning...let me go check PayPal...nah nothing. They still owe me those two old redemptions, plus the July 15 one that they said they entered August 13 and would pay, plus one that I made on August 5, which is now overdue. I have stopped writing posts and will now be writing emails, instead.

My email postings were about every six days. I tried to remain civilized (though difficult), but was very pointed in my comments, using their quotes from the page regarding "customer service," and such. The responses I did receive were personal responses (not some cut-n-paste as the original), but I could tell they were uncomfortably "professional." I won't hesitate to continue the practice. I will give them the 30 days they say it will take, and then, once a week, I will begin again.

It's a shame that any of us have to waste precious time writing these emails, when we could write other things that we can put out to the world that will bring about peace, joy, love and understanding. Pity. ;)

I would not have even written anything about their response, I am very happy that you received the payment from the 'other site' Ha Ha

Yay! Glad you finally got paid by that site.

I never used to get email notifications about payment until just recently. I usually had to check my Paypal account to discover I already got paid.

I'm glad you got paid. I'm still waiting on two redemptions.

I'm supposed to get paid tomorrow. I'm holding my breath, but am not really expecting the payment to be on time. I'll be ready to redeem again tomorrow.

Are you all caught up now with them, Coral? They do really seem t be making an effort to catch up lately. I'm seeing a lot of positive changes. It feels very much like certain staffers are stepping up and taking charge of getting things done. And I know tech team has a couple of new staffers, and was advertising for several others :)

B-news, for lack of a better name, really needs to do its homework regarding communications, especially when it concerns payments and changes in the rules. I don't think the owners are as business-savvy as they think they are.

Or is rudeness the new normal?

CoralLevang wrote on October 11, 2014, 2:42 AM

Well, I am now waiting again. LOL

CoralLevang wrote on October 11, 2014, 2:47 AM

alexdg1 I am in full agreement with you.

My August 22nd redemption is now coming up on day 50, which stated I would have by Sept 21st. I have another redeemed on 10/3 which will likely be in January, at the rate they are going.

I wrote an article over there this week about business principles, tagging the two owners. I doubt that they take heed.

OldRoadsOnceTraveled wrote on October 12, 2014, 12:29 AM

I finally got those two. I had another after that that was 5 days late, but I've been notified on it now.

CoralLevang wrote on October 12, 2014, 5:31 AM

Well, hoping to see it this week.

Well, the B site finally did what everyone had been predicting for a long time.
