But on my Dec payout just gone, there are some placements on my statement that I didn't actually get paid for. Each placement you get with Pump is logged under a separate contract, and I am aware there's a $50 minimum threshold before they pay out. Fair enough I suppose, if you've only had one placement and it's below $50, but I've had several individual placements over the last 6 months that total up well over the minimum of $50.
In the past I got paid based on the total of all contracts being over $50, but now I'm being told by Pump that for each individual contract I generate that's below $50, I just won't get my share. Pump get their share of the payment from the client, regardless of minimum amount, but if my part is below $50 it just vanishes?
Previously they paid out based on the total of all contracts from the last 6 months but now I'm being told this caused them 'accounting issues'! When I asked about it further I was told "We are moving towards eliminating the multiple contracts, which will, in part, make this sort of situation a rare occurrence, but this change is still in the planning stages."
I need to dig out the original agreements and read them through closely but surely this isn't legal? I'm thinking of getting some legal advice although I don't know if it's worth the bother for a couple of hundred quid. But I'm loathe to just let them get away with it as their deal is bad enough already.
