Payment Tech Issues Causing Delay

Screen Shot 2014-05-15 at 8.06.57 PMI never like posting our green guy…but Houston, we’ve got a problem.

We ran into some unforeseeable tech issues running payment today. As a result of this problem we’re going to run payment tomorrow.

We apologize for the delay and are working quickly to get things worked out.

As always we appreciate your patience and understanding while we get the gremlins back in line.

    Glitches happen. In the case of Houston having a problem, put a 10-gallon hat on the green guy. Hee, hee.

    • bdkz

      10 gallon hat planted firmly on head : )

  • Ruthi aka abitosunshine

    Hey, gremlins have a way of creating chaos everywhere! No doubt the issue will be resolved as quickly as possible. I’m in no hurry to give my Squidoo earnings to the doggie doctor anyway! :-)

    • bdkz

      Yeah for doggies!

  • LoreleiCohen

    Thank you so much for the update. It is very appreciated.

    • bdkz

      You’re welcome!

  • PaigSr

    I don’t pay attention to the calendar when it comes to the payments. For me its a nice surprise when I sign on.

    • bdkz

      : ) Surprises = awesome, and thanks!

  • MSchindel

    Thanks for letting us know, Bonnie! Whether it’s today or tomorrow, my payment from Squidoo is always greatly appreciated. :D

  • WriterJanis

    I was wondering why it wasn’t showing up in my Paypal.

  • Robert Connor

    Would love to be one of those affected!

  • manlalakbay

    It’s okay. Anyway, I will be back here in Squidoo and continue writing in the coming days and months. :)

  • jeffwend

    Thanks for sharing. Always feels better to be in the know than to guess and worry.

  • The_Health_Lady

    Any day that we get paid for having fun is a good day :)

  • happynutritionist

    Thanks for letting us know:-)

  • KonaGirl

    Mahalo for the heads up!

  • CosmeticMom

    Thought I was crazy seeing a big $0. Thanks for the update.

  • GrimRascal

    Well, thanks for telling us this. I’m sure it’ll get resolved soon. :D

  • oldnavyguy12

    Problem solving is all a part of good business.

  • flycatcher

    Eh, gremlins happen… Thanks for letting us know what’s up; that’s much appreciated.

  • Tara_W

    Phew, this explains it! I was worried for a sec when I saw the big $0. Thanks for the update.

  • Hairdresser007

    Thanks for the heads up!

  • marsha32

    I was glad to read it’s a glitch as my payday stats read to me as if I have 0 (zero) lenses.

  • Titia

    Always stressing when those things happen. I just sold a book (through Catawiki) and I can’t find it. Probably put it in the wrong box, but in which of the 20+ boxes is for me to find out.

  • takkhis

    Thanks for the info! And I hope it will be solved soon :)

  • artyfax

    Glad to know it is being worked on, was getting worried

  • RockinPicks

    You guys are so good with glitches I am just relieved it wasn’t me. Thank you for letting us know so that nobody worries. Keep doing what your doing. You guys are the best.

  • kinworm

    Thanks for keeping us informed – these things just happen sometimes. Great to know it’s being seen to :)

  • DaveStone13

    I didn’t see this last night, but as always, we appreciate your candor and that getting it right always matters so much to HQ. Thanks.

  • stylishimo

    Ahh, just seen this. Thanks Bonnie.

  • GypsyOwl

    Thank you for posting this. I thought there might be a problem on the receiving end. Tech is supercool until it has a meltdown. (smile) Thank you for all you do, Bonnie. You are appreciated!

  • katiecolette

    Thanks for the update. Looking forward to the payday :)

  • lakeerieartists

    Good to know,.

  • Merrci

    It was nice of you to let us know. Surprises are good even if they take a little longer to arrive.

  • selfhelpguru

    Thanks for letting us know (and keeping us updated).

  • Jodi_k

    Thanks for telling us, Bonnie! Are the fluctuating tier payment numbers part of the glitch?

    • bdkz

      Yes, they are.

      • Jodi_k

        Aha! Thanks for letting us know.

  • fullofshoes

    hmmm… still nothing in PayPal – must mean that the green guys have got payday in custody. ;)

  • selfhelpguru

    Hope your victory over the gremlins is imminent. I can imagine that it must be very frustrating, especially with all of us lensmasters holding our breath…

    I noticed the money going in and out of our dashboards… It would be great if you could post an update if it looks like you either know when it’s going to be resolved or if you know it’s going to take “longer”… (Of course I hope it’ll be the first).

    Thanks so much!

    • bdkz

      Still working on it, should be coming soon.

      • redamohammed9

        Nice to see you’re updating us, but I have a question:

        Will I still get paid even if my paypal account is unverified?

  • ShamanicShift

    Uh oh. I just checked Pay Pal (hours after the last comment) and reckon the gremlins must be holding (up) pay-day, still.

    • bdkz

      You should have it now.

      • selfhelpguru

        We do! Thank you so much!

  • favored1

    Thanks for getting it fixed so quickly.

  • EditionH

    Thanks for the quick fix…

  • Arachnea

    I gather I should file a bug report? I never did see the blue box or mine.

    • brada7x

      Have yet to see a payment myself.

  • happynutritionist

    I’m happy pay came through, but am confused as to why there isn’t any breakdown in the “pie chart” on the page, or next to each lens as usual, telling what came from amazon, text links, etc. Is it done differently now? Did I miss a message along the way? Thanks so much for the pay though, I’m always thankful for whatever comes my way.

  • Joie

    I’m with Paig . . . I open my Dashboard, and surprise! Payday already? Ooooh . . . I hope I did as well as I think I did . . . maybe . . .

  • ThisisMissyMiss

    I still don’t see the blue box. Anybody else?

    • brada7x

      Still no box on my end either.
