Just wondering if anyone has ever been shocked that a big known company stiffed you on a payment of supplies you had shipped to them? I have been chasing a huge company for payment for 5 months and they don't seem to care that they are selling the product on their site and still no payment. Not to mention they had me make some other items, which I did and when I said they were ready, no reply.

Maybe a phone call? "Who do I talk to regarding Accounts Payable?" That usually triggers events.

You've chased them. Have you invoiced them? A professional looking invoice often gets results.

Those two actions have helped me in the past.

Good luck!

Actually, the bigger the company, the longer you will have to wait for your money. I worked for an industrial company that sold wire to GM. Well, GM only paid their invoices on a certain month of the year, according to the alphabet letter in a name. So most invoices were only paid on a yearly basis.

As suggested, call the company, you may be on the phone for a couple hours, talk to Accounts Payable. Find out when you are scheduled to be paid. Don't surprised if they will only discuss one question, as in the GM instance, they only handled one question per call. If you had a 2nd question, you had to call back, and they would hang up on you.

Do you have a contract?
If you have all the info on your terms and conditions and they aren't following them,then they're
in breach of contract and you're able to take action.
If you've no contract,then you've just learn't a harsh lesson.
What do we want?
A cure for tourettes!
When do we want it?
C*nt!

Just contact a company that will buy your receivables. I do it all the time, it's super easy, and it works...but you may only get 85% of your revenues, as the receivables company will take a cut of the proceeds.

Regards,
Mike

Just wish companies would be as trust worthy as Theory 11 and Murphy's....... such a pain in the arse seeing your product selling on the offenders web site with out payment.
